Electric Banana (The Pretty Things)Complete De Wolfe Sessions (Electric Banana/More Electric Banana/Even More Electric Banana/Hot Licks/Return Of The Electric Banana) (3CD set) ... CD
De Wolfe/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A fantastic legacy of music from the UK scene – even though it's a pretty darn secret one as well! The Electric Banana were a very unique studio group – a combo who featured Phil May and Dick Taylor of the Pretty Things, right at a time when that group were at the height of their fame – working as a faceless studio combo with other musicians for the DeWolfe Sound Library label – all to create these tight, short rock tracks that would later end up getting used in film soundtracks and TV programs all through the 70s! A surprising number of these tracks have vocals – a bit of a change from the usual sound library recordings of the period – and over the course of the five records in the box, there's a real sense of evolution – on that matches all the growth that the Pretty Things were going through too – although maybe not as trippy overall. The group also features John Povey on drums and Wally Waller on bass – and early work features arrangements from Reginald Tilsley, which drop away pretty quickly in favor of the core sound of the combo. 3CD set features five full albums, plus notes on all the music included – with titles that include "Do My Stuff", "Maze Song", "Alexander", "Street Girl", "Grey Skies", "Free Love", "Danger Signs", "Eagles Son", "The Loser", "Sweet Orphan Lady", "The Dark Theme", "Blow Your Midn", "Love Dance & Sing", and "A Thousand Ages From The Sun".

✨✧ Rubba/Roger Webb SoundWay Star/Moon Bird ... 7-inch
De Wolfe/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two gems from the De Wolfe sound library – back to back on a single 45! "Way Star" is a wonderful mellow number – a slow groove and lots of electric piano lines – which you might recognize from the cut's use as a Madlib sample! "Moon Bird" has a similar dreamy vibe – great Rhodes with wordless female vocals gliding gently over the top – from the wonderful singer Barbara Moore! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousScoctopus – The In Sound From Octopus Records ... CD
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A legendary set of sound library grooves – and actually one of the first to kick off the genre! The package brings together rare tracks from the small Italian Octopus label – not nearly as well-known as De Wolfe, KPM, or other sound library giants – but an equally great source of rare funky jazz cuts that were never issued to the public at the time – recorded as part of the huge wave of studio activity in Italy during the 60s and 70s! Given that the set was collected by Schema, you can bet that the tracks are right on the money – and titles include "Curly" by Stellio Subelli, "Sculturea Beat" by Angelo Baroncini, "Diacromeico" by Sandro Brugnolini, "Games" by Pasquale Castiglione, "First Black" by Mario Molino, "Maze" by Roberto Conrado, and "Verso L'Infinito" by Alessandro Alessondroni.

✨✧ Dusty Fingers OrchestraDramatic Underscores ... LP
Dusty Fingers, 2020. New Copy ... $15.99
A really great project from Dusty Fingers – the beat-digging collective who turned countless producers and hip hop DJs onto the world of sound library grooves back in the 90s, thanks to their legendary collections! This album has the DF team almost returning the favor – using the title of "Dramatic Underscores", which would frequently appear on vintage sound library albums from labels like KPM or DeWolfe – and serving up their own live creations, dedicated to reviving an older sound library vibe! Instrumentation varies from track to track – as it would on a classic set – and tracks are all short, funky in their many varied ways – with instrumentation that includes Hammond, Fender Rhodes, guitar, percussion, heavy drums, and lots of cool electronics and effects. Titles include "Man Hunt", "Catfish Stew", "The Fuzz", "Blood Lust", "The Boiler Room", "The Assassin", "Two Faces Of Gemini", "The Evil That Men Do", and "Tap The Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

Riz OrtolaniI Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072/La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1981/1983. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Riz Ortolani is best known for his big scores of the 60s – but here, the maestro turns in two early 80s soundtracks – one sci-fi, one horror – both with a very distinct vibe! First up is I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072, a soundtrack that has some "future" elements in its use of 80s keyboards, but which also balances things with warmer currents – with a result that's almost like the way that the sound library scene was changing right at the start of the 80s – particularly in the way that KPM or DeWolfe were introducing electric elements amidst more familiar instrumentation. In other words, the set's not a straight keyboard/guitar score, as in the Goblin generation – but certainly nods to that shift. La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco is much more varied – a short score, but with tunes that move between disco groovers, to creepy lullabies, to some very dark-toned moments – all in a relatively short space! 2CD set features 23 tracks in all – including two bonus tracks from the 45rpm single for I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072.

Electric Banana (Pretty Things)Electric Banana Blows Your Mind ... CD
Carnabeat (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $24.99
The complete works of the short-lived Electric Banana – a side project of The Pretty Things, used to record music for the DeWolfe Music Sound Library! Unlike other DeWolfe titles of the time, the work here is all vocal, and all pretty rock-based – but it also gets arrangements from library maestro Reg Tilsley, who really focuses the sound, and keeps the short tracks filled with the kind of punch and mod rhythms we'd expect from DeWolfe in the late 60s! There's definitely a Pretty Things sound in place here – but it's a bit groovier than before too – and the CD features a total of 15 tracks that include "Blow Your Mind", "Eagles Son", "Alexander", "What's Good For The Goose", "Grey Skies", "Street Girl",a nd "If I Needed Somebody".

✨✧ VariousHillbillies In Hell – The Rapture – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Great work from a series that never gets old – and which, if anything, seems to keep digging deeper and deeper with each new volume! If you know that, as the Louvin Brothers tell us, Satan Is Real – then you'll find plenty to spook your soul here – and we don't just mean the creepy cover! As with previous volumes, the tracks are a superbly-selected batch of songs from the farther reaches of country music – dealing with themes of temptation and salvation, awash with all the evils of mankind that weren't washed away in the pulpit! Titles include "Satan's Wife" by Jesse Floyd, "Turn Your Radio On" by The Statemen Quartet, "It's Nothing To Me" by Loy Clingman, "The Devil" by Ronnie Wolfe, "Satan's Suitcase" by Robert Zehm, "Devil Get Away From Me": by Roy & Georgia & The So & Sos, "Nightmare" by Jack Turner, Ghost Of A Honky Tonk Slave" by Cowbowy Howard Vokes, "On The Cross" by Margie Singleton, "Ghost Town" by Billy Massey, "Singing Shouting Praying" by Bill & Opal Carter with The Country Gents, "Fourth Man" by Reverend Tully McCoy, and "Please Devil" by Bobby Griggs.

VariousMusax Background Music Library Vol 1 (with bonus download) ... LP
Musax/Farfalla (France), Late 70s. New Copy ... $34.99
A first-ever look at the tiny Musax sound library of the late 70s – a small company that only recorded a handful of records, but managed to create some great groovers that really competed with some of the bigger names of the time – like KPM or DeWolfe! This set brings together some of the best from Musax – tracks recorded in 1978 and 1979, mostly in a funky jazz mode – but with al these cool little twists and turns – such as scatting vocals on one cut, or cool processing on another – and a great ear for overall sound that makes all these selections feel like way more than just a few funky musicians getting together in the studio to knock off a quick cut. Speaking of musicians, we didn't recognize any of the names listed in the lineup – save for drummer Daniel Humair, and if he's in the mix, that's more than enough of a pedigree for the rest. Titles include "Liberia Land", "Peter", "My Wooden Cross", "Trois Caros", "Pictures Of My Soul", "Iceberg", "Marchaleco", "Ghost March", "Man Fly", and "Watery Stars". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHappy Disco 2 – Solar Night – Mixed By DJ Osshy ... CD
Solar/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
West coast soul galore – as the mighty Solar Records catalog comes alive in the hands of DJ Osshy – who delivers a non-stop mix that brings together almost 30 tracks from the legendary LA powerhouse of soul! As you'd guess from the title, the tracks here are on the clubbier side of the spectrum – but that also includes lots of upbeat 80s funk, in addition to some of the 70s disco cut by Solar in their earliest years – which makes for a great sense of groovy variety throughout! Titles include "Take That To The Bank (12" mix)" by Shalamar, "Fantastic Voyage" by Lakeside, "Emergency" by The Whispers, "Come Back Lover Come Back" by The Sylvers, "Call Me" by Bill Wolfer, "Do You Like Our Music" by Collage, "I Surrender" by The Deele, "No Parking On The Dance Floor" by Midnight Star, "I Just Can't Without Your Love" by Carrie Lucas, "Groove Control" by Dynasty, "Slow Jam" by Midnight Star, "I Can Make It Better" by The Whispers, "Take It To The Top" by The Sylvers, and "It's All The Way Live" by Lakeside.

✨✧ VariousLibrary Archive – Funk, Jazz, Beats & Soundtracks From The Vaults Of Cavendish Music ... LP
BBE (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant funky instrumentals from the UK Cavendish Sound Library – a company who could sometimes recorded more staid music, although that certainly wasn't the case with the gems on this collection! The music is by a handful of British studio talents of the time – most of whom come from the jazz scene in earlier years – and provide a great update of their earlier talents with some very sweet electric touches! Many of these tunes have some really great keyboards – Fender Rhodes or even moogier elements – and many also have wicked basslines next to the funky drums, which really make things kick throughout. These tunes are vastly undiscovered – at least in comparison to better-known sound library funk from companies like KPM or DeWolfe – but we'd put these grooves right up there with the best of that bunch too. Titles include "Night Shade", "The Rally", "Southbound", "Snowmobile", "Night Driver", "The Trackers", and "Lady Killers" by Dennis Farnon; "Milky Way" and "Star Voyage" by John Scott; "Two Bars" and "The Scape Goat" by Pete Moore; "The Big Score" by John Cacavas, "One Way Trip" by Sam Fonteyn, "Smile Of A Stranger" by Dominic Sands, "Riff Raff" by Geoff Bastow, "Come Cuban" by Edward White, and "Kaleidoscope" by Tony Kinsey.

✨✧ Gregorio Garcia SeguraHarlem Pop (with bonus CD) ... LP
Quartet (Spain), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky work from Spanish sound library composer Gregoria Garcia Segura – tunes that move along with a mighty nice groove, often hitting the sorts of styles we love in Italian cop/crime soundtracks from the 70s! The music is filled with funky jazz elements – heavy drums and basslines, riffing guitars, sweet keyboards, and plenty more – plus the occasional mellower moment to balance things out – almost as if the whole thing is some rare funky library record from KPM or DeWolfe! Titles include "Samba Del Pito", "Harlem Pop", "Africa Pop", "Una Simple Melodia", "Al Este Del Oeste", "Pensando En Ti", "Safari", and "Baila Balanga". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300 – with bonus CD!)
