CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A journey into space with a wonderful sound – served up here as a set of cosmic instrumentals from Luciano Michelini, most of which have a pretty groovy vibe! The mix of 60s instrumentation, spacey touches, and light electric moments reminds us of Peter Thomas or Johnny Harris at their best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Musica Per Commenti Sonori
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
An Italian funk double-header – a sweet little set from the end of the 60s, and one that features killer cuts from both Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi! We love either artist on their other own records, but there also seems to be something about putting them together here that makes ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Percussion and special effects – a really wonderful blend, especially in the hands of Italian maestro Piero Umiliani! The album's one of Piero's more experimental and electronic outings – done for the Liuto sound library label, with lots of cool production techniques that make the ... CD

Suspense
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy
One of the coolest records ever cut under the Zalla alias of Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the suspense promised in the title, but with lots of groovy touches along the way! Think of the album as kind of an update of older "scare" ... CD

To-Day's Sound
Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A gem of a record from the great Piero Umiliani – and maybe one of his funkiest, grooviest projects ever! The set is more sound library funk than soundtrack – and features some very strong keyboard work in the lead on most track – including Fender Rhodes, moog, Hammond, and even ...

Feelings (with bonus CD)
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
A legendary sound library set from the 70s Italian scene – exactly the kind of record that got so many folks digging for sound library funk so many years ago! The record's a masterpiece of funky rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and warmer touches – served up with plenty of Fender Rhodes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Feed-Back (with bonus CD)
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Stunning work from Lesiman – easily one of the coolest, funkiest talents on the Italian sound library scene of the 70s! The groove here is electric, funky, and often slightly trippy – with perfect use of electric bass to get things going in so many different ways, depending on the mood ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Flipper/Penny (Italy), 1970s. New Copy
An Italian Sound Library compilation series so full of gritty funk grooves, it's positively criminal! This might be the best volume in the series yet – really getting to the nitty gritty of the European soundtrack funk style of the end of the 60s and most of the 70s – some so minimally ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Flipper/Penny (Italy), 1970s. New Copy LP & CD
A record as weird and wild as the cover – filled with really tripped-out sounds from the obscure Flipper sound library in Italy! The music follows strongly in the best style of the rock-driven sounds from Italian horror films – but there's also a more compact approach too, with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Flipper/Penny (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy LP & CD
Rare tracks from the Flipper Music sound library – a small Italian imprint of the 70s, with a style that's heavy on trippy touches! The work here feels a lot like the kind of sounds you'd get on the best American biker soundtracks of the late 60s – or some of those cool psychedelic ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Four Flies (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A late psychedelic era Italian sound library gem – and rare one, too! Essentially the work of a trio of composers – Romano Rizzati, Renato Sperduti and Franco Bonfanti – it's got a consistent, small combo feel that's reminiscent not only of seedier Italian soundtracks, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy 3LP
Not the fauna and flora you might expect from the title – and instead, a collection that's every bit as heady as some of Egisto Macchi's other sound library work from the time – very offbeat, very unusual, and pretty downright spooky! The sounds here are almost more what you'd expect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mondo Inquieto (180 gram pressing)
Soundworkshop/Black Sweat (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani harnesses both sides of his famous talents here – electronics and strings – both combined here in a very experimental way, in keeping with some of the more offbeat albums that came from his Sound Workshop in the 70s! Some tracks almost have a film ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Four Flies (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
The grooviest sound library work we've ever heard from Gerardo Iacoucci – a fabulous mix of playful mod and psych-steeped uptempo jazzy material – equal to, but with a wildly different style than his far out Simbolismo Psichedelico record from around the same time! This one is packed ... LP, Vinyl record album

UST 86 – Ballabili Anni 70 (180 gram pressing)
Fonit/Sonor (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic – the kind of record that puts an instant smile on our face, and which very much lives up to the cover promise of a hipster playing drums on an Italian beach for a handful of very groovy dancers! The set's on the funkier side of the sound library spectrum – and awash in sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album
