Nino Nardini's given us some very groovy music over the years – like his famous Jungle Obsession album – but this set has the maestro working in a completely different mode – turning out some incredibly haunting sounds in a musique concrete approach! Nardini composed all the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A treasure trove of Brit sound library work – most of it from the legendary KPM 1000 Series, plus assorted bits from the Conroy label as well! The work here leans heavily towards funky jazz – those fuzzy, hard-driving tunes that always made KPM sides a key choice for action films and ... read moreCD

Just Sold Out!
Unbelievably great stuff! Soundtrack composer Johnny Harris put together this album of moody instrumental tracks for Warner UK in the late 60s, and it's an incredible batch of airy easy tracks mixed with nice funky moments! If you haven't hear Harris' work, he's sort of like Roy Budd and some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Australian Blank label reissue, from 2017. Cover has one slightly bumped corner, but is nice overall.)
The cover's almost got a 4AD sort of look to it – and that might be a good way to approach the music of Jozef Skrzek here – as it hits on the more meditative side of that British label in the second half of the 80s – as Jozef creates all these spare, keyboard-heavy instrumentals ... read moreCD
A very jazzy set of sound library tracks from Poland – done in a mix of fusion and prog that's similar to some of that nation's great groups of the 70s – maybe no surprise, given that the guitarist in the group had also performed with the rock act Breakout! Yet here, the style is ... read moreCD
Some of the funkiest work we've ever heard from Polish vibist Jerzy Milian – a series of late 70s recordings that have him working with a larger ensemble in a very groovy mode! The approach is sound library or soundtrack funk at some points, but also almost gets a bit disco at others – ... (Jazz, Sound Library)read moreCD
Fantastic work from a saxophonist we're hearing here for the first time ever – Boguslaw Rudzinski, who recorded this set in 1963 – right at the same time Krzystof Komeda and his generation were opening up doors in modern jazz on the Polish scene! Rudzinski is maybe a bit more inside ... (Jazz, Sound Library)read moreCD
The cover looks a bit pastoral, but the grooves here are totally great – funky sound library material from 70s Poland – originally created for a very unusual format! The music here was originally issued only on cassette, as a daily soundtrack for Polish drivers – groovy tunes ... read moreCD

The material was recorded at the Polish ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than ... (Soundtracks, Sound Library)read moreCD
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 ... read moreCD
If you can forgive the title of this one, you'll find it to be a very groovy record! The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
