Electronia
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A totally great little record – every bit the gem you might expect from the title and the cover! The music is less electronic than infused with all the best electric instrumental styles of the 60s on keyboards and guitar – used on these short, jaunty instrumentals that are somewhere ...

Biomechanoid (180 gram vinyl)
Aguirre (Belgium), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
Dark, spacey and surprisingly percussive soundscapes from composer and multi-instrumentalist Joel Vandroogenbroeck – with a chilling sci fi theme, complete with cover art by HR Giger! Vandroogenbroeck cut quite a few thematic sound library records over the years, but Biomechanoid is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Drama Montage Vols 1 & 2
Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), 1978/1979. Used 2CD
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

Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
Sophisticated sounds, indeed – pulled from a time when the British sound library scene was really moving to the next level – and finding a strong identity that was all their own! There's plenty of sound library funk in the mix here, but there's also some deeper sophistication too ... CD

Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), 1980. Used
Two nicely dramatic sound library sets from Johnny Scott – who you may know better from his jazzy work of the 60s! Scott really shows his evolution into a wider-ranging soundtrack artist with Theme Sets – a record that mixes exotic themes, military themes, thriller themes, and the kind ... CD

Energism/Futurism
Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), 1978/1981. Used
Sweet keyboard work from the UK sound library scene at the end of the 70s – two very forward-thinking records with lots of space age touches! First up is Energism – a set that's heavy on keyboards, moog, and synth from Francis Monkman – all played with a tight rhythm section that ... CD

Unreleased Recordings From The KPM Vaults
KPM/Tummy Touch (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Funky library music from the KPM vaults – one side of raw, hard-driving action soundtrack-ready funk credited to New York Trouble – and one side of proggier and spacier funk credited to Electric Progression! The New York Trouble side has gritty feel – but it's not without its ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy CD & Book
A killer collection of sound library funk from the UK – a scene that served up some of the rarest grooves of the 70s! The music is every bit as funky as American work from the early 70s – like records from CTI, or blacksploitation soundtracks – but most of it was never issued on ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Show Up (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy
Rare tracks in a world of already-rare music – a collection of funky numbers from the Themes International sound library – none of which have ever been released commercially before! The package is a great addition to the realm of sound library funk – and although the names here ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
To-Day's Sound
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
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 ... CD

Industrial
Flipper/Dead Cert (UK), 1976. New Copy
Completely weird, completely wild work from Italian maestro Alessandro Alessandroni – a set of noisy industrial tracks that's quite different than his lighter work for film scores or TV shows! The music here definitely lives up to the "industrial" promise in the title – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Underground (with bonus CD)
Liuto Records/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hoctor/Luv N' Haight, Mid 70s. New Copy LP & CD
The incredible drums and Rhodes-heavy jazz dance album from composer Thom Janusz – made in collaboration with NYC dancer, choreographer and company leader Ronn Forella – possibly the funkest, best and hardest-to-find album ever released by the Hoctor label! Ostensibly a hip 70s dance ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Flirt/Sonor (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Really romping sounds from this sweet little combo – a group who might have been a funky rock outfit in the mainstream – but who here work in the all-instrumental territory of the Italian sound library scene! The Cast Five have a mix of mod and psych touches throughout – fuzzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dicky Oliver
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A 60s album recorded in Italy – but with a groove that's midway between Memphis and the mod sounds of the London scene – thanks to a heavy dose of Hammond and horns! The tunes are all instrumental, and leap right into the fray with these romping rhythms that often snap along in the ... CD

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

Feed-Back
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold
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 ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
SOS/Sweet Decay
Disposable (UK), 1974. New Copy
A pair of sound library rarities – back to back in this limited pressing! SOS features very cool work from Andrzej Korzynski – a Polish composer with a sense of sweet electric sounds that matches Italian composers like Stelvio Cipriani or Nico Fidenco – spun out here on a host of ...

Space Oddities 1975 to 1978
Born Bad (France), Late 70s. New Copy
Spacey sounds from the enigmatic Jean Pierre Decerf – a lesser-known sound library artist from the 70s scene in France, but one who's finally getting his due! Decerf has a style that really lives up to the title of the collection – working with lots of keyboards and electronics in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
