Chorus
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Very groovy work from the legendary Janko Nilovic – a set that's every bit as funky as some of his other records, but one that has a slightly different twist as well! The "chorus" in the title is appropriate – as there's a flurry of wordless vocals in the mix of this one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), Mid 70s. New Copy 3 CDs
A trio of rare records from Janko Nilovic – all packaged together in one box set! First up is Pop Impressions – hardly pop at all – save, perhaps, for the fact that it's been sampled by a number of hip hoppers over the years – because the set's one of the greatest ever from ... CD

Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
One of the funkiest records ever cut by studio jazz genius Janko Nilovic! This set definitely earns the "soul" in the title – as Janko blends his usual mad mix of studio sounds with some heavier 70s elements – including a fair bit of fuzzy guitar, funky beats, and some nice ...

Infini (2016 Record Store Day Release)
Roma (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Hauntingly beautiful sound library material from a pair of great composers – the versatile, rare sound library scene favorite Armando Sciascia – and lesser known, but brilliant Fabio Fabor – on an excellent selection of material recorded in the early 70s! The sounds range from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ittiologia
Intervallo (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
There's a fish on the cover, and some great sounds within – a rare collection of Italian sound library instrumentals, initially brought together in the 70s – and featuring a mix of sweet sounds and much moodier moments! Some tracks have a soundtrack-style level of warmth – while ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pop Impressions
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Nothing pop about this groovy little record – save, perhaps, for the fact that it's been sampled by a number of hip hoppers over the years – because the set's one of the greatest ever from the legendary Janko Nilovic – a real masterpiece of complex grooves and offbeat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vedette/Roma (Australia), 1974. New Copy
The definitely got the title right on this one – as the album's got plenty of violin, but never in the way you might expect – as the instrument is used in all these weird and wonderful ways that really make the record a treat! There's neither classical nor jazz-based violin approaches ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
Wonderfully mad grooves from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – and a set that seems to draw on all of his mighty talents at once! Some numbers have a soul jazz groove, with great lead piano from the maestro – others have cool wordless vocals, or maybe even a bit of whistling – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
Stunning sounds from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – an artist who contributed to countless Italian soundtracks in the 60s and 70s, and who sounds even more amazing here in this rare set of sound library funk! The album's all instrumental, and is overflowing with groovy little tracks ... CD

Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from Belgian Hammond hero Andre Brasseur – a musician who clearly cut a heck of a lot of records back in the 70s, as evidenced by the huge range of record covers and 45 sleeves inside! Yet Brasseur's also one of those guys who never fully got his due – a keyboard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prisma Sonora
Cometa (Italy), 1972. New Copy
A dream of a record from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – an obscure sound library set, but one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite Italian soundtrack classics of the time! Alessandroni's going for a very Morricone-like feel here – lots of spacious rhythms, isolated ... CD

I Futuribili
Gemelli/Cometa (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Proof that the Italian sound library scene had way more to offer than just background music – a depth of amazing styles that more than live up to the legendary composers who worked in its service! This album is key illustration of that fact – hardly what you'd expect from a canned ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Oriente Oggi
Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A very cool Italian sound library set from the early 70s – one that updates an exotic mode of previous years, but with a strong knowledge of all the new sounds and styles that have been cooked up since that time! Instrumentation is nicely varied, and often has some of the echoes of Italian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Underground
Liuto Records/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Psichedelica
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Echoing America
Cometa (Italy), 1970. New Copy
A record that definitely lives up to its title – an obscure Italian sound library session that blends instrumental touches that evoke an America at the start of the 70s with some of the hipper, deeper currents you'd expect from the team of Stefano Torossi and Giovanni Tomasso! There's plenty ... CD

Tower Of Power
Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
Cool keyboards, moogy moments, and lots of other sweet electric touches – all served up in this rare album of sound library grooves from the Orchestra Cometa – a larger ensemble made of players who worked for the legendary Italian studio outfit! The music here is in a mid 70s funky ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Effetti Musicali
Omicron/Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A mindblowing album of "musical effects" from Italian maestro Piero Umiliani – a set that offers up some of his incredible work in the field of electronics, but also some wonderful percussion and other acoustic instrumentation too! The music here comes from a range of different ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
Killer funk from the Italian scene of the 70s – work by the Pulsar Music Ltd combo, originally used as the soundtrack for the crime classic Milano Violenta! Italian crime films were really hitting their height at the time – documenting the new wave of terror that was hitting the cities ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
First Look
Cometa (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A small group session from guitarist Carlo Pes – originally recorded for the Cometa sound library series, but actually more of a straight jazz record overall! Carlo plays here with a quartet – just piano, bass, and drum behind his instrument in the lead – and the guitar often has ... CD
