Camille Sauvage   NEW
Fantasmagories (MP 2000 n°33, France)
This music library could easily illustrate a scary movie from the early 70's. Lots of tense and haunting sounds and atmospheres.
LP, Ex/Ex, 80 €
Gerhard Narholz  
Chappell Mood Music Vol. 15 - Electronic (Chappell, France)
One of the most interesting early electronics albums ! The tracks are written by Walter Waal and Otto Sieben, and Gerhard Narholz conducts the Electronic Studio Orchestra. Very rare, hot demand !
LP, Ex/Ex, 70 €
Jean-Claude Vannier / Karl-Heinz Schäfer / Christophe  
April Orchestra Vol. 13 (April, France, 1976)
Marvelous line-up ! Three early and obscure tracks from the French legend Christophe : "Modèle 76", "3'30 pour rêver" and "Le dernier des mauvais jours", an unknown tracks from Jean-Claude Vannier : "L'ours paresseux", plus the amazing "Nous n'irons plus au Labrador" by Karl-Heinz Schäfer, "Bagarre des blousons noirs" by Jean-Claude Naude and "American Vogue" by Didier Batard. Trippy, groovy, jazzy, psychedelic, hypnotic discoid funk !
LP, Ex/Ex, 60 €
Alessandro Alessandroni  
Romance and Drama (Coloursound CS 5 , Germany)
A superb and quite unknow Alessandroni release ! Only a few people know that the Italian master did a few library LPs on Coloursound. To me, this one is the best by him on the German label. It has probably more of the French soundtrack sound, than Italian, but I won't complain if Alesandroni imitates François de Roubaix. My top recommendation, a beautiful album.

Milan Kymlicka  
Radio Canada (CBC - Radio Canada n°415, Canada, 1975)
Ultra rare Canadian library including featuring the cult Milan Kymlicka. Superb samples and breaks here ! Ready made hip hop tunes ! The good tracks are : "Reggae Music", "Tubular Bells", "Clap for the Wolfman" and "Sundown". Last copy !
LP, VG+/Ex-, 110 €
Orchestra Algo Nuevo - Juan Pablo Torres  
Salsita afro cubana (Vedette, Italy, 1977)
An amazing Italian pressing of one of Cuba's best albums. It is a dope latin groove / salsa funk album, full of breaks and caribbean beats, and a few tracks for the club. Check "Rompe cocorico" and "Que se pepa" for a blast, and you also have "Que melchoca", "Que sabroso el majarete", "Tres lindas cubanas", and "Echale salsita". A few marks but plays fine. Killer !
LP, VG+/VG+, 60 €
Serge Boëche  
Du son au geste (Armand Colin - Bourrelier, France)
Totally obscure and almost unfindable for years, this record was supposed to offer music for kids' motricity in small schools in the south west of France. The kind of 70's record you ask yourself "how copies can still remain ?". Well, third copy for me, and I am not sure I'll find another one again. Many different musical moods on this LP, ranging from jazz to prog, including drumbreaks and electronics. Killer collector item !

Francisco Semprun  
Espaces dynamiques (Unidisc, France)
A strange record ! Supposed to accompany motricity lessons in schools in the 70’s and 80’s. Yes, if you want to know the reason why people of our generation are that crazy, it is just because we were listening to that kind of record while we were kids ! Crazy dramatic / psychedelic atmospheres, sometimes similar the ethno / exotica album “Stoned Drums” by Michel Delaporte, sometimes similar to the Lesiman sound, because of the use of harpsichord, organ, bongos and tablas that undoubtedly add an Italian library feel. 70’s kids have now grown up ; if you now like Giuliano Sorgini, Piero Umiliani, minimal electronic / contemporary music, this record is for you.
LP, Ex-/Ex, 40 €
H. Caiage (aka Gerardo Iacoucci)  
L'aventure (St Germain des Prés 116, France)
Wow ! French issue of a terribly rare Italian library credited to Gerardo Iacoucci (under his alias H. Caiage). The track "Violence" is a killer drama breakbeat in itself ! Piano, bass, drums and percussions… Heavy LOOPs, a bit similar to Piero Umiliani's "Percussions", also released on the same label. "La plantation" is a wild and percussive latin track with organ flute and lots of percussions, "Le cap" is a psychedelic soul beat with distorted guitar and organ, "Production industrielle" has percussions and electro FX, and "Evasion" is just pop bass solo. Simply great ! Almost impossible to find nowadays.
LP, Ex-/Ex-, 350 €
Brian Bennett / Alan Hawkshaw  
Hot Wax (KPM 1177, UK, 1976)
This LP includes the ultimate track you are after, the devastating "Name of the Game" and its enormous breaks. "Tense masculine underscore" as the liner notes says… No need to translate. Several heavy funk tunes on this cult KPM album !
LP, Ex/Ex, 75 €
Janko Nilovic / Gerard Levecque  
Pep Music (Ducros, France)
Wow ! Fantastic LP released as an advertising for the French spice firm Ducros. The tracks featured here were all previously released on the mythic labels Montparnasse 2000 and St Germain des Prés… Tunes are afro groovy pop, latin, jazzy or psychedelic. Tracks are "Danse Bakaloo" and "La trace des éléphants" (Gérard Lévecque), "Le seneque" (A. & L. Sainz), "Cantate pour deux coeurs", "Hommage à Pelé", "One Together" and "Contact Man" (Janko Nilovic), "La valsa mexicana" (L. Delacour & Guy Boyer), "Reflets de Russie" (Daniel J. White), "Los chagras de Cotopaxi" (M. Ordonez), and "Nagpur" (Braen = Alessandro Alessandroni). One track features an explanation of the Ducros Spicephony concept. Really a great item with a beautiful cover, and very very rare ! Cover is a little torn (see scan) and disc has some marks.
LP, VG/VG+, 35 €
Vladimir Cosma / Michel Bernholc  
Dramatique & nostalgique (Patchwork n°3, France)
Deep drama groove and breaks on "FBAïe", "New York City Police", "Articulation", "Bowery Mood", "Dramaction". A very tough number by Vladimir Cosma.
LP, Ex/Ex-, 100 €
Oscar Lindok (aka Giacomo dell'Orso) / Donimak (aka Nico Fidenco)  
Stati d'animo Vol. 1 (Cam Cml 034, Italy, 1973)
Strange Italian groove, something between Giampiero Boneschi (for the electronics) and Giuliano Sorgini (for the exotic beats). Great loops in the vein of our beloved Madlib. A small part of the lower left corner is torn.
LP, VG/Ex, 110 €
Giuliano Sorgini  
April RCA Vol. 10 (April RCA, France, 1977)
Library album dedicated to the animal reign ! This has surely been used to accompany the National Geographic documentaries ! Afro percussions on "Masai" and jungle exotica with wildlife sounds on "Rhinoceros". The track "Prairies" is amazing too. Trippy !
LP, Ex-/Ex, 110 €
Gary Sandeur  
Action descriptif ambience mouvement (Vol. 2) (Hibou, France)
Top uptempo funk on "Progressive", which sounds like a house tune (has it been sampled yet ? don't think so). Perfect to move the crowd as a DJ, perfect for your sampler if you are a producer. "On the Move" is funky too, with a great and hypnotic wah wah. And there's a lot more on this album !
LP, Ex-/Ex, 60 €
