KPM/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Easy listening, but done the KPM Sound Library way – which means that most of the cuts here have a great undercurrent of funk! Given that KPM often employed the same artists who recorded the style of funky easy featured on the famous Sound Gallery compilations, you can bet that this set's a ... CD

Drama Montage Vols 1 & 2
Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs
Hard-driving work from UK sound library hero Brian Bennett – an artist who gave us so much great funky work at the start of the 70s, and who's still going strong here at the other end of the decade! Both records are mighty nice – a mixture of familiar funk with some deeper tones that ... CD

Underground
Liuto Records/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold

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
