Cinedelic (Italy), 1975. New Copy 3CD
A really special set – one that features three full albums of rare work from Italian sound library composer Egisto Macchi! First up is Desert – a sound library set, but one that's way more than just a batch of short cues or funky instrumentals – and instead, a richly complicated ... CD
Astromusic Synthesizer
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A record that definitely lives up to its name – given its blend of synthesizer sounds, and it's musical approach to the twelve segments of astrology! Each track has a different astrological sign as its title – "Virgo", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Scorpio" ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Exactly the kind of record that makes us love sound library records so much – and definitely the sort that sets the style apart from anything else we can think of! Both Sandro Brugnolini and Giorgio Carnini turn in some great work here – a mindblowing mix of modes over the space of ten ... CD
Astromusic Synthesizer
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A record that definitely lives up to its name – given its blend of synthesizer sounds, and it's musical approach to the twelve segments of astrology! Each track has a different astrological sign as its title – "Virgo", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Scorpio" ... LP, Vinyl record album
La Fatica
Flipper/Intervallo (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A great sound library set, and one with a very unusual vibe – music that comes mostly from the trumpet of Massimo Catalano and the piano and keyboards of Remigio Ducros – the latter of whom is avant sometimes, and more jazzy at other moments! Catalano's trumpet does a lot to warm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Climax (180 gram pressing)
Octopus/Song Cycle (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic set from the legendary Italian Octopus sound library – one of those tiny little record labels from the 70s that didn't care about any sort of labels for the music it released! And yet, if we had to label this one, we'd mark it with a super-big "Groovy" in bold letters ... LP, Vinyl record album
Under Pompelmo
Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A swirling mass of sounds – mostly electronic, but often heavily processed too – so that the whole album feels like some tripped-out, psych-jamming version of moog instrumentals! The set was recorded in the legendary Sound Workshop Studio of Piero Umiliani – and was done by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Interbeat/Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Sweet funky electronics from Franco Chiari – served up on a rare sound library session with an incredibly groovy feel! The keyboards range from electric piano to much more moogy modes – and are played with Chiari in ways that are almost a more electrified variation of the Italian ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
Grooviness galore – a wonderful set of instrumentals in the best Italian sound library mode – jazzy, upbeat, and put together with all the unusual sonic touches we love from the coolest soundtracks of the time! The style here follows nicely on the B81 album from Fabor – but is ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from the Italian scene – a set that's got some of the coolest, grooviest tunes we've heard from that country's sound library generation! Unlike some of the spookier, more avant sets from the libraries, this one's awash in beautiful little instrumentals that fit somewhere ... CD
Musica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD)
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... 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
I Miei Stati D'Animo
Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A quirky little record from Italian pianist Lelio Luttazzi – a jazz artist at the core, but really stretching out here for this rare sound library session from 1971! The set's got Luttazzi painting in many modes of sound – sometimes upbeat and mod, sometimes a bit spare and ... CD
Play Time (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Some of the funkiest, grooviest sounds we've ever heard from Francis Lai – the French film composer who gave the world the soundtracks for Love Story and A Man & A Woman – but who comes across here in a style that's more like some of the best British and Italian sound library ... LP, Vinyl record album
DOC
Dual Planet, Early 80s. New Copy
A very cool set from sound library enigma Teisco – and one that's a lot more tune-based than some of his other work! The vibe here is very much in an early 80s electro mode – lots of processed guitar over drum machine rhythms, often with this wobbly vibrating sound that's pretty darn ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy
The kind of sound library gem that keeps us digging for sound library records after all these years – a treasure trove of groovy instrumental tracks that never got commercial release back in the day! The style here is early 70s Italian – all the best modes learned in the soundtrack ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe the coolest and grooviest music we've heard from the obscure Braen's Machine sound library project from early 70s Italy – a record that's less tripped out than its predecessors, and instead has this great style that's heavy on bossa elements and funky jazz! The vibe's a bit like the ... LP, Vinyl record album
