Trunk (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Beautiful sounds from overlooked British composer Basil Kirchin – a talent who's finally been brought to light by the Trunk Records label, who've done a great job of digging up some of his more obscure work, and finally getting it the attention it deserves! This package is a sidebar to those ... LP, Vinyl record album
DJM/Isle Of Juara (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A voyage from Brian Bennett – indeed a trip into disco and funk inspired rhythms, as the subtitle lets us know, but also plenty synthy rock, jazz and proggy elements – a Voyage worth taking from the sound library genius Bennett! The synths and keyboards by Francis Monkman is the secret ... LP, Vinyl record album
Inventions For Radio – The Dreams
Psychic Sounds, 1964. New Copy
One of the coolest compositions we've ever heard from Delia Derbyshire – a special set of electronic compositions based around dreams, with lots of tape work and electronics from Delia, plus loads of eerie recitations as well! Each track features someone describing a dream – at a level ... LP, Vinyl record album
GLP 1007
Nelson (Italy), 1970. New Copy
One of the coolest albums ever from this legendary Italian combo – a set that's still got all the sound library funk of their other records, but with a vibe that's maybe a bit more complex and jazzy too! Things are never too far out, but there's definitely moments where a key instrumental ... CD
Electronic (180 gram pressing)
Standard/Silva Screen, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Take a trip into space, all without leaving the comfort of your home – thanks to the amazing electronic talents of this trio of British sound library pioneers! The set is one of those that never got full appreciation at the time – as it was issued only by the Standard Sound Library, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sound Of The UFOs
Gold/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A record that's way cooler than you might expect from the title – which is already pretty darn cool itself! The set's got sounds from an astounding array of instruments played by the pair – not just the electronics and keyboards you'd usually get on a record like this – but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her ... LP, Vinyl record album
Le Avventura
Deneb/Finders Keepers (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The masterpiece by one of the most obscure artists in the Italian sound library scene of the early 70s – music that easily moves from funky sounds to cosmic styles to jazzy moments and beyond – sometimes within the space of a single tune! Gerardo Iacoucci's music is a huge change from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Voice Of Taurus
Gold/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Very cool spaced-out sounds from Bruno Spoerri – a Swiss jazz musician at the start, but one who was always open to very experimental sounds – as you'll hear here on this rare sound library album from the end of the 70s! Bruno plays a huge amount of keyboards here – but also adds ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sam Spence Sounds
Finders Keepers (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy
Amazing sounds from the groovy Sam Spence – an American composer who worked heavily in Germany during the 60s and 70s, turning out some really cosmic sounds in the process! The cuts here are a wonderful mix of funky sound library grooves and more electronic numbers – a beautiful blend ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD
Really wonderful sounds from an overlooked sound library genius – and an artist who's also a great one to turn to if you want to hear the groovier side of the spectrum too! Rene Costy recorded these tracks on the 70s scene in Belgium – which is why he's probably not as well-exposed as ... CD
ESP (180 gram pressing)
Cometa (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of the weirdest sound library records we've ever heard from Egiso Macchi – and that's really saying a lot, given how much weird music the man has given us over the years! The set is very heavy on sounds created by the theremin – but with styles that are often a bit different than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clouds (180 gram pressing)
Flipper/Spettro (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Very cool sounds from Pasquale "Lino" Castiglione – an Italian sound library composer we've never heard before, but who really soars out of the gate with a range of groovy styles! Some tracks here have a hip 70s funky jazz approach – complete with sweet keyboards and tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
Idee 1 (180 gram pressing)
Flipper/Spettro (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet little sound library album – of the sort that first got us digging for sound library records so many years ago! This one's got it all – some funky moments, some jazzy bits, and a number of cuts that remind us of our favorite Italian soundtracks from the period – served up ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone – a rare album of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of his recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter soundtrack material – ... CD
Mondo Groove (Italy), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
A naked guy, holding a Commodore computer – a image that gives you a very good idea of what to expect here! The songs are all instrumentals, made on the Commdore at a time when that computer was one of the hottest things going – and they're all sexy, slinky numbers that move between ... LP, Vinyl record album
Halo Wenus (with bonus tracks)
GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy
Dig space age sounds? Then you're going to find plenty to love here – in a record that's filled with sweet keyboard instrumentals, odd electronics, and lots of lovely little melodies – all brought together in a record that easily transports the listener to the planet Venus! The ... CD
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy
A pair of totally wonderful albums from sound library composer Mladen Franko – both originally released by the Sonoton label in Germany, and presented here as a single CD! Franko's less well-known than some of his bigger European contemporaries, but has a similarly deft hand with a groove in ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Heavy electro work from Suzanne Ciani – an artist who peaked a bit later than some of her sound library contemporaries – which means she was able to contribute music experimental films, record productions, and video games – and not just the usual mainstream outlets! Ciani's ... LP, Vinyl record album
