✨✧ Orchestra CometaDaydream – Musica Di Mirot-Stepchild-Lash ... LP
CEM (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever from the legendary Cometa sound library – a set that's every bit as weird and wonderful as you'd guess from its cover image of a hand holding a flower with eyeballs on each petal! The music's maybe not as trippy as that picture, but it does have lots of cool and groovy touches – sweet Fender Rhodes at some points, jazzy reeds at others, and even some more evocative passages that almost have a deeper soundtrack vibe – but which soon return to the kind of tight, funky numbers that we love so much in Italian sound library material from this time! The players aren't named, but they're clearly top-shelf talents from the scene – and tracks include the funky "Rash", plus "Riddle", "Happy Fire", "Swallow", "Canty", "Diplomat", "Gadder", "Bike", and "Daydream".

Guido & Maurizio De AngelisLa Montagana Del Dio Cannibale/Messalina Messalina ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $18.99
A pair of thrilling 70s action scores – back to back on a single CD! First up is La Montagna Del Dio Cannibale – a cannibal narrative scored with a great sense of drama by the De Angelis brothers – almost the same energy as their cop/crime work, but without the funk – just full, rich sounds that really build over time, and create this strong feeling of suspense! There's a few exotic elements in the music, given the setting – and these make for some slight hint of a groove – and titles include "Visioni Distorte", "Marcia Allucinante", "La Montagana E Il Mistero", "Ipnosi Tragica", and "Il Dio Cannibale". Messalina Messalina has an older Roman setting, and a relatively sexy narrative – and the music is scored with a mix of percussion, light flute, and some slinky electric basslines – of that great sort that was often used to convey sex in 70s Euro cinema! Some of the melodies are playful, others more erotic – and titles include "Notti Romane", "Danzatrici", "Incontro D'Amore", "Un Piacevole Addio", "Messalina", and "Ballata Burlona". CD
(Limited edition of 500!)

Egisto MacchiCitta Notte (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Cometa/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Way more than just another set of soundtrack work from the Italian scene of the 70s – and instead, a record that stands equally well on its own, with a really complicated mix of larger themes, folksy currents, and some avant garde instrumentation! The music is possibly some of the warmest we've ever heard from Egisto Macchi, but also some of the most complex, too – as the record begins with this mix of acoustic guitar over sonic textures, almost sentimental in quality – but soon moves into some of the more offbeat elements that define the Macchi legacy – many sounds carried far from their initial instrumental sources, coming together with an overall vibe that lies somewhere in a space between Italian soundtracks and the experimentation on the Cramps Records label. Titles include "Citta Notte", "Bidonvilles", "Orsa Maggiore", "Lampare", and "Terza Eta". LP, Vinyl record album

Stefano Torossi & Giovanni TomassoEchoing America (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cometa (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A record that definitely lives up to its title – an obscure Italian sound library session that blends instrumental touches that evoke an America at the start of the 70s with some of the hipper, deeper currents you'd expect from the team of Stefano Torossi and Giovanni Tomasso! There's plenty of expected sound library funk in the mix here – but there's also bits of banjo, harmonica, and acoustic guitar – all used sparely, but in a way that paints "America" on some of the groovier cuts here – in a way that makes for one of the most unique sound library sessions we've ever heard! Plus, the book comes with some nicely hokey notes about our nation, and some nice vintage photos – including images of a hippie wrapped in a flag in a hammock, and a confederate soldier loading a canon. Titles include "Black Power", "Policeman", "Fake It", "Six Miles From Blackstook", "Slateridge Sunday Breakdown", "Harlem Jungle", and "Metropolis". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMusic Is My Life ... LP
Cometa (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... About June 1, 2021
Not much of a cover, but that's usually the way it is with the Cometa Sound Library – who provided all the great grooves on this set! Cometa was one of the more obscure sound library labels on the 70s scene – but they also maybe lasted the longest, perhaps because they were small – and they managed to forge relations with some of the best composers from the Italian film scene at the time – who bring to their recordings a wealth of cool instrumental touches and unusual elements that rival our favorite soundtracks! This set follows the full scope of the Cometa sound – some numbers are funky, some are jazzy, some are dreamy, and one even gets a bit disco – and titles include "Il Caso Bebawi" by Berto Pisano, "Colpi Di Piume E Tempesta" by Ennio Morricone, "American Sound" by Alessandro Alessandroni & Sandro Brugnoli, "Macchina D'Amore" by Armando Trovajoli, "Dolce Notte" by Luigi Zito, and "Policeman" by Tito Schipa & Giovanni Tommaso.

Rita LeeAtras Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade ... CD
Polydor (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa".
