Martial Solal   NEW
Locomotion (PSI 20707, France, 1974)
The best work by Martial Solal in the mid 70's. A shame it was only released on library, on the small label PSI ("African Voodoo", "Dinha Manta's Power"), a sub-label for MPI. Line up includes Solal of course, plus Bernard Lubat on drums and Henri Texier on bass. Superb modal jazz and groove.
LP, Ex/Ex, 300 €
The Big Group   NEW
Big Hammer (Southern, USA, 1971)
Wow ! One of the toughest British library ever, here released on the North American label Southern. You know the track "Heavy Lift" of course, probably the heavy weight tune on this album. But a listening will prove that the whole LP is really solid.
LP, VG/Ex, 150 €
David Wescott  
A Musical Evocation of the Old Testament (Master Plus, Germany)
I haven't seen this library LP that often... Weird electronic project featuring drums and ARP, clavinet, String ensemble, electric piano and other keyboards... Spacy electro disco on "Accross the Jourdan", fat dark LOOP for hip hop on "Passage of the Red Sea", with killer drumbreak and FX.

Jacques Denjean  
Sunrise Sunset / Strange and Mysterious (Silver and Gold 01, France)
Oh my ! Mysterious and heavy psych groove on this French library album !
LP, Ex/Ex, 80 €
Evasio Roncarati / Luidini / Sordini  
MJQ - Riflessioni Musicali per 4 Strumenti (Panda, Italy)
So raaaaare ! This is the one ! The album including "Central Park" by Evasio Roncarati, superb jazzy groove with vibraphone. Some pretty nice breaks ! On the micro (and highly collectable) Italian label Panda Maybe 200 copies pressed only !
LP, Ex/Ex, 250 €
H. Tical (Armando Sciascia)  
Distortions Pop (Sonimage SI 801, France)
Library issue of the legendary Blue Phantom LP called Distorsions (origally released on Kaleidoscope in 72). A must for every psych prog funk collector. Weird atmospheres, distorted guitar, sound effects, fuzz pop rock backing, and breakbeats. Including "Metamorphosis", "Diodo", "Compression", "Equilibrium", "Dipno", "Equivalence"... Almost impossible to find those days... CULT !
LP, Ex-/Ex, 200 €
Armando Sciascia & R. Castiglione  
Musique pour la route (Sonimage SI 803, France)
A nice organ pop "SOS Z2" and a great oriental groove "Desert Heat", plus several good pop & jazzy tracks.
LP, Ex/Ex, 90 €
Camille Sauvage  
Fantasmagories (MP 2000 n33, 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 €
Ali Ishfahan / Georg Farid  
All the Arabias (JW 416, UK, 1978)
Interesting British library from two guys whose names sound like pseudonymes. As the title suggests it, it deals with oriental music, featuring oud and fluteand drumbreaks. Tons of samples here, and it's not common.
LP, VG(+)/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 Schfer / Christophe  
April Orchestra Vol. 13 (April, France, 1976)
Marvelous line-up ! Three early and obscure tracks from the French legend Christophe : "Modle 76", "3'30 pour rver" 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 Schfer, "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 Franois de Roubaix. My top recommendation, a beautiful album.
LP, Ex/Ex, 150 €
Milan Kymlicka  
Radio Canada (CBC - Radio Canada n415, 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 €
Serge Boche  
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 !
LP, VG+/Ex-, 120 €
Francisco Semprun  
Espaces dynamiques (Unidisc, France)
A strange record ! Supposed to accompany motricity lessons in schools in the 70s and 80s. 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. 70s kids have now grown up ; if you now like Giuliano Sorgini, Piero Umiliani, minimal electronic / contemporary music, this record is for you.
