Billy & Friends (Puccio Roelens)  
Buenas noches angel mio (Vedette, Spain, 1971)
Superb exotic sitar groove on "I Found My Love In Portfolio" and the legendary "Hua Hua Rock" (here called " Encontre mi amor en Portofino" and "Ua ua Rock"). Cool beats and samples too. Don't miss this Italian record that involves Puccio Roelens, Armando Sciascia and Francesco Anselmo under the name Billy & Friends ! And notice that is is a surprising Spanish issue of a kind of Italian library. What a piece !
LP, Ex-/Ex, 70 €
Jean Claudric  
Pop 74 (Jasmin Productions, France)
Very rare album by Jean Claudric, on the small French library label Jasmin. Some good beats on "Gust of Wind", groovy wah wah chase track with electric violin, breaks and stabs on "A Trump Card", pop fuzz on "Hurly Burly", "Groovy pop and breaks KPM style on "High Cranberry", plus the groovy pop "Dog Days". A very good one, remaining unknown to most. In excellent shape, only slightly warp.
LP, Ex/Ex, 150 €
Guerra e angoscia (Rotary 1005, Italy, 1973)
Italian crime jazz, spacy electronics, simply a must.
LP, Ex/Ex, 250 €
Yves Hayat  
Conversation Between the East and the West / Timing n°13 (In Editions, France, 1976)
The crazy rare Timing n°13 ! Cosmic sitar funk, electronic and trippy breaks on "Path to Ascension".

Mario Molino  
3 (Cam Cml 052, Italy, 1974)
Wow ! One of Molino's best effort ! And you will probably recognize "Gli angeli del 2000" in disguise, here released on a library record. Devastating psych beat or sweet groove with female wordless vocals… You know, THE Italian sound ! All the good tracks : "Jerk Beat", Shake Psycho", "Angeli del 2000", "Woman", "Furto di drogua", "All See Saw", "LSD una croce". Oh my God !
LP, Ex-/Ex, 250 €
Michel Gonet  
Phasing News Vol. 2 (Télé Music n°67, France, 1976)
A big French library ! "Flower Dance" of course ! Crazy hot demand ! But listen to the whole clip, as there's more to discover. I am not asking the top price, so grab it quickly !
LP, Ex/Ex, 200 €
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 flute…and drumbreaks. Tons of samples here, and it's not common.
LP, Ex/Ex, 90 €
Tonio Rubio  
Rhythms (Télé Music n°34, France, 1973)
Wow ! Here comes the holy grail ! "Bass In Action" is the tune here, as you may know. But there are two versions of this track on this album, and the one with the male scat is amazing. "Dead Slow" and "Latin Leitmotiv" are great too. A sound very similar to Quincy Jones' "Gula Matari" LP. Killer interpretation and killer breakbeats.
LP, Ex-/Ex, 280 €
Gianni Fallabrino  
Musical Visions n°1 (Broadway, Italy)
A killer LP from il signor Fallabrino, on the very small label Broadway. Soft groove or heavy Italian crime funk ! Very rare ! Tracks include "Perpetual Rhythm", "Space", "Impression", "Obsession", "Eclipse", "Metamorphosis", etc… Stickers of the front cover.
LP, VG+/Ex, 120 €
Janko Nilovic  
Oh My Soul (Zero, France)
Totally impossible to find ! One of the very few commercial album Janko did in the 70's. As this one did not sold, it is now very rare. "Aerospatial", "Un diamant dans l'espace", "Oh My Soul"… Janko Nilovic at his best !
LP, Ex/Ex, 110 €
Roger Webb  
Like a Friend (Music De Wolfe, UK, 1975)
Killer drama beats with strings on "Assignation". Can we call this ready made hip-hop ?
LP, Ex/Ex, 60 €
Keith Mansfield / Alan Hawkshaw  
The Big Beat (KPM 1044, UK, 1969)
Does this need an introduction ? Well, The Mohawks at their best on "Roving Reporter", "Exclusive Bland", "Beat Me "til I"m Blue", "Senior Thump", and so on… Marvelous !
LP, Ex-/Ex-, 250 €
Victor Cavini  
Japan (Selected Sound, Germany, 1983)
Wow ! It took me years to get a second copy to offer ! Killer Asian beats provided by the mysterious Victor Cavini. Listen to this ! It reminds me of Rino de Filippi's "Oriente oggi", or Giancarlo Barigozzi's "Oriente", see what I mean ?
LP, Ex/Ex, 120 €
Bruno Nicolai / Philippe Sarde  
Ambiente triste e drammatico (Cam Cml 080, Italy, 1974)
Superb cinematic work from Bruno Nicolai and Philippe Sarde. Italian drama groove and tasty French soundtrack touch on "Sans espoir", "L'aveu de Marie" and "La verité". My top recommendations if you like François de Roubaix, Ennio Morricone and Piero Piccioni's sound !
LP, Ex/Ex, 75 €
Janko Nilovic  
Vocal Impressions (MP 2000, France, 1971)
Superb session by the genius of French library Janko Nilovic. Imagine a vocal group like the Double Six on holidays in Roma and in Brazil in the early 70's… Wonderful pop jazz scat on "Improvisations pour deux voix", "Week end à Chelsea", "Du soleil camarade", "Funky Village", and "La La That's It", plus the super groovy "Atchika Boum". Just excellent, and one of my favourites on MP 2000. First issue, quite rare. Light marks.
LP, Ex/VG+, 50 €
