✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Keith PapworthHard Hitter ... LP
De Wolfe (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A heavy funk gem from the UK sound library scene – exactly the kind of record that makes digging for sound library records so great – filled with grooves that never saw the light of day on the mainstream market back in the 70s! Heavy drums rule the scene on many cuts – making the record a real beathead classic – and instrumentation shifts from track to track, from funky flute to wah wah guitar, and plenty more 70s touches too – all delivered with tight, sharp instrumentals that work together perfectly on an all-killer, no-filler session! Titles include "Superdrive", "Decisive Action", "Hard Hitter", "No Way", "Stay With It", "Inflation", "Race With Time", "Speed Trap", "Hair Raiser", "Fun Seeker", and "Great Technique".

Roger Webb Sound with Barbara MooreVocal Patterns ... LP
De Wolfe (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the coolest records ever from the legendary De Wolfe sound library in the UK – a set that's great not only for the work of Brit maestro Roger Webb, but also for the vocals delivered by Barbara Moore – a legendary session singer with a hell of a jazzy touch! Webb's charts are always full of life and color, and showcase his own roots in jazz – served up here with all sorts of fast-stepping rhythms that really let the vocals of Moore take off in wonderful ways – always without lyrics, as Barbara has this way of singing wordlessly that makes her voice act like another instrument next to the horns and keyboards in the arrangements. Wonderful throughout – with titles that include "Dreamy", "Play Girl", "Autumn Aria", "Up West", "Think Twice", "Flipper", "Sandy", "Gentle Soul", and "Sounds Easy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RubbaIn Motion – Modern Progressive Group Sounds Played By Rubba ... LP
Farfalla/De Wolfe (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the more obscure sound library albums of the 70s from the Music De Wolfe label – a set of electric jazz tracks that's a bit more open and varied than the usual sound library groove – with occasional periods of instrumental intensity that really lives up to the progressive promise in the title! The tracks move between short, two minute numbers that are straight and funky – and other tracks that stretch things out a bit longer, with almost a rock fusion quality – but never too jamming or indulgent. Keyboards are the main instrumentation in the solo spots – and are used with enough variety, it would be hard to tie the record to any one sort of easy reference. Titles include "Vector", "Nebulae", "Green Star", "Moog Concerto", "Astradome", "So Softly", "Perpetual Whirlwind", and "Carousel In The Milky Way". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Frank McDonald & Chris RaeMean & Dirty ... LP
De Wolfe (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer set from the legendary De Wolfe sound library of the 70s – a record that's got all the badass cop/crime vibe you'd expect from its shooting gallery target on the cover! The tracks are nice and lean – cop show funk, but without fuller orchestrations – so that you can really concentrate on the funky drums, basslines, guitar riffs, and keyboard parts – plus some occasional moogy moments that spice things up in a mighty nice way! The whole thing's great – maybe as strong as any of the classic crime soundtracks of the 70s – and the set features 20 titles that include "Flying Squad", "Bank Job", "Slow Fuse", "Moving Target", "Dragster", "Night Moves", "Mind's Eye", "Smash & Grab", "Fast Mover", "Prowler", "Route 67", and "Easy Drive".

Basil KirchinAbstractions Of The Industrial North ... LP
De Wolfe/Trunk (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... About February 24, 2022 (delayed)
Pure greatness from Basil Kirchin – some of the rarest material the amazing composer ever recorded – and some of the best Kirchin work we've ever heard! Abstractions Of The Industrial North was recorded for the De Wolfe Sound Library in 1966 – but it works absolutely as a stand alone album, truly elegant and hypnotic material that combines an emotional sweep with an incredibly hip Brit jazz vibe! The first 11 tracks on the set make up Abstractions Of The Industrial North – "Prelude And Dawn", "Heart Of The North", "The Observer", "Conclusion", "Packing, Printing And Light Assembly", "Neutral Background", "Heavy Machinery" and more. The remaining 9 tracks are culled from De Wolfe Sound Library cues that Basil & co. also recorded in '66 – beautiful cuts that were carefully selected to carry on the pastoral, groovy vibe of the Abstractions material! Tracks include "Mind On The Run", "Where To Go", "Paranoia", "Viva Tamla Motown", "Pageing Sullivan", "Interaction", "Four Against Seven" and more. 20 tracks in all! LP, Vinyl record album

Bill WolferWolf (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Constellation/Octave (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A rare set of blue-eyed soul from the early 80s – recorded by Bill Wolfer, singer and keyboardist who'd worked heavily with Stevie Wonder in the late 70s, and also a bit with the Jacksons in the early 80s. Wolfer's one of the only white artists to record for the mega-hit Solar label in LA – and this album has a great sound that's somewhere between the work of other Solar artists, and the work that Stevie Wonder was doing at the end of the 70s. Titles include "Call Me", "So Shy", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", "Nobody Knows", "Soaring", "Wake Up", "Pop Quiz", and "Camouflage". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "Love Games", "9000 Problems", "Call Me (orig single)", "You Are One Sunny Day", "The Hard Way", "I Will Get To You", "Little Miss Lover", and "Adam & Eve".

✨✧ VariousBig Deal – Weinberger Funk Library 1975 to 1979 ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Big deal, indeed – as this excellent set looks at a really under-tapped source of sound library funk from the 70s – a small British company who was turning out glorious grooves in the same classic years as KPM or DeWolfe! The players here are mostly British, and many are more obscure than the other UK sound library musicians who worked for the bigger labels – and often had soundtrack and jazz studio recordings as well. These guys are fresh names, with fresh sounds, and some heavy grooves that have hardly seen the light of day after their limited 70s circulation on non-commercial albums. You've got a taste of a few Weinberger tracks on the Bosworth Library Sessions from Strut many years back – but these are all different grooves, chosen with the great ear for jazzy funk we expect from the Sonorama label. Titles include "Integration" by Trevor Bastow, "Rhythm Rhythm Rhythm" by Reginald Wale, "Over & Out" by Toni Campo, "Big Deal" by Midals Touch, "Santaren" by Vick Flick, "Focus On The Middle East" by Ishfahan Farid, "Knock On Wood" by Sid Dale, "Make No Bones" by Midals Touch, "Centrefold" by Toni Campo, "Soul Punch" by Piet Van Meren, and "Gone Gone Gone" by Reginale Wale.

VariousLight Mellow Solar Records – Sound Of Los Angeles Records ... CD
Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
The sound's not entirely mellow – as LA's Solar Records was a label that was pretty dedicated to a groove – but the set does mix in some of the label's great midtempo cuts alongside its better-remembered groovers – all in a great summation of the sound and style that made the company a real powerhouse of west coast soul! The collection covers a good range of the label's strongest acts, and there's some nice surprises along the way, not just the Solar hits – as tracks include "Shine The Light" by Collage, "A Song For Donny" by The Whispers, "Call Me" by Bill Wolfer, "Charlie" by Carrie Lucas, "Two Occasions" by the Deele, "Computer Love" by Cat Miller, "Groovin" by Collage, "I Want To Love You Tonight" by Klymaxx, "Personality" by Dynasty, "Floating With The Tide" by Ralph Butler, "Come Back Lover Come Back" by The Sylvers, "Slow Jam" by Midnight Star, and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" by Lakeside.

✨✧ Donald EdwardsColor Of Us Suite ... CD
Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from drummer Donald Edwards – a set that states its position strongly with the title, then features a suite of tracks that work together perfectly to deliver Donald's message! The record has a power and focus that's wonderful – as Edwards leads the group through his own compositions with a soaring, soulful quality that we're not sure we've ever heard him express this strongly – getting superb performances out of a combo that includes Anthony Wonsey on piano, Ben Wolfe on bass, Abraham Burton on tenor, and David Gilmore on guitar. Titles include "Black", "Brown", "Tan", "Finding Beauty", "Little Hopes", and "Hurricane Sophia". CD

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Eleven76Occhio Occhio ... LP
Farfalla (France), 2022. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first commercially-available full length set from Eleven76 – a group who get the classic sound library groove so correct, it's hard to tell if this is a contemporary album or a lost nugget from the 70s! There's a few moments of instrumentation and production that give things away slightly – but overall, these guys love the sort of tight, focused instrumentals that you'd find on the best DeWolfe or KPM Sound Library sets from years back – never complicating things too much, and just focusing on the right sort of rhythm, topped by a key instrumental element! The set's definitely got an Italian flavor at points – and titles include "The Scarab's Quest", "XYZ", "Junie", "This Kind Of Love", "Tooth Rot", "Feline", and "Puzzle".
