Original Italian library music from the vaults of Nelson Records, recorded between1970 and 1976. All tracks performed by I Marc 4, one of the key acts in the birthand development of the New Italian Library Sound, formed by Maurizio Majoranaon bass, Antonello Vannucchi on Hammond organ and piano, Roberto Podio ondrums and guitarist Carlo Pes. In this album we dig into the record library ofNelson Records, founded in 1970 by the musicians Maurizio Majorana, AntonelloVannucchi and Roberto Podio after establishing the recording studioTelecinesound, right where the New Italian Library Sound was created. This is thesound that many collectors, musicians, record producers and film directors stilllike, look for, rediscover and re-use for their work. The New Italian Library Soundhas the signature of I MARC 4, a quartet that recorded 20 albums from 1970 to1980 but who also collaborated with the great masters of Italian soundtracks ofthe 60s and 70s, especially with Armando Trovajoli, bringing their own style intothis new sound, mixing jazz, pop, rock and psychedelic music.

Unsere dritte Ausgabe der "R&B Hipshakers"- Serie liefert Euch rockigen R&B und frühen Soul aus dem King/Federal Katalog.Eine Zusammenstellung von Songs aufgenommen zwischen 1955 und 1964 von solch essentiellen Künstlern wie HANK BALLARD, LITTLE WILLIE JOHN, JOE TEX, FREDY KING oder EUGENE CHURCH.20 sensationelle Tanznummern, ausgegraben vom Genre-Experten Mr. Fine Wine von WFMU Downtown Soulville.Einige Titel sind zum ersten Mal wieder erhältlich. Die limitierte 7` Box beinhaltet zehn Singles mit originalgetreuen Nachdrucken der KING/FEDERAL Taschen und Etiketten. Bei unserem neuesten Griff in die KING/FEDERAL Schatztruhe war es wieder unser Ziel, zwanzig unterschätzte R&B Songs zu finden und zu einem Paket zu schnüren, das Euch einfach zum Partymachen zwingt! Hier nun, was wir ausgegraben haben: + Der Beckenschlag von Schlagzeuger Cozy Cole auf ,COZY MAMBO".Derselbe Track sollte drei Jahre später noch mal auf dem KING-Unterlabel Bethlehem als ,Cozy and Bossa" rauskommen, um den aufkommenden Bossa Nova Wahnsinn auszunutzen und um Kapital aus den durch exotische Tanzrhythmen verwirrten Hörern zu schlagen.Mambo? Bossa Nova? Spiel, Cozy, spiel! + Die aus New Orleans stammende LINDA HOPKINS gibt in ,MAMA NEEDS YOUR LOVIN BABY" einen Klagegesang zum Besten. Später, in den 70ern, wird sie am Broadway als Bessie Smith zu sehen sein (Nicht, daß uns der Broadway in die Tüte käme).+ Der ,clippety-cloppety"- Rhythmus auf EARL KINGs ,OLD FAITHFUL AND TRUE LOVE", eine der frühesten Aufnahmen auf dieser Compilation, von 1955.Das halt uns lange im Sattel [sic!] / bei der Stange. NB: Hier handelt es sich um EARL CONELLY KING, nicht den bekannteren Singer/Songwriter aus New Orleans Earl King.+ Wenn wir schon von Satteln sprechen: galoppierendes Tempo bei ,SHE'S MINE", von Rock & Roll Cowboy JOE TEX - erst seine dritte von Abertrilliarden Singleauskopplungen.+ Die gepfiffene Antwort auf Mel Williams Gesang bei ,SEND ME A PICTURE BABY" (und so ziemlich alles andere an diesem Song) machen ihn zu einem unserer Favoriten.+ Das brilliante Arrangement von EUGENE CHURCHs Version von SIXTEEN TONS: die Bassstimme, die schludrigen Fingerschnipser, der Whomp Whomp Refrain.+ Der lippenschmatzende Schrei bei ,Rib tips!" inmitten der vom Driver vorgenommenen Aufzählung von Körperteilen beim ,DRY BONES TWIST".+ Der unwiderstehliche Swing des überproduktiven Keyboarders BILL DOGGET bei ,HOLD IT".+ LOWMAN PAULINGs elektrische (in jeder Hinsicht!) Gitarre bei ,SOLID ROCK". Er ist der Typ, den Steve Cropper als seinen größten Einfluss bezeichnet, hier in seiner typisch fesselnden Form. + Alle Stimmen, besonders die von HANK BALLARD, bei ,NOTHING BUT GOOD". So viel ist sicher: so lange wir die Hipshakers-Reihe machen, wird HANK BALLARD mit Sicherheit vertreten sein.+ + Billy Gayles' als eifersüchtig-besessener Höhlenmensch in "TAKE YOUR FINE FRAME HOME".+ JACKIE BRENSTONs raue, erboste Abwehr: ,MUCH LATER" (for you, baby). Und erst der bemerkenswerte Tremoloeinsatz des großartigen IKE TURNER an der Gitarre! + Zum verführerischen Takt von ,THANKS MR POSTMAN" tanzen.Selbst langsame Liebeslieder in Moll können uns nicht am Tanzen hindern: Wir können nicht genug davon kriegen! + Das ganze Schlagwerk auf ,DON'T PLAY WITH LOVE", und die Art wie es stoppt, um der Stimme von LITTLE WILLIE JOHN im Refrain Raum zu geben.(Und als ob es nötig wäre, es extra dazu zu sagen:) Was für eine Stimme!! + Die stark verletzte Anspannung von Gitarren-Superstar FREDDY KINGs ,IN THE OPEN".+ Die ungebändigte Albernheit beschleunigt die Tragödie bei ,ONE BUFFALO". Anmerkung für Nicht-Amerikaner: das amerikanische Fünf Cent Stück wurde bis 1983 der Buffalo Nickel genannt und es war noch immer im Umlauf als Jimmy Petersons 7" im Jahr 1962 erschien.+ Der Wechselgesang zwischen King Pins Sänger TC LEE und den Backings in ,I WON'T HAVE".+ Der Kontrast zwischen TINY TOPSYs heisere Härte in ,JUST A LITTLE BIT" zum dazu wie verrückt zwitschernden Kampf von Chor und Flöten.+ Die Tatsache, daß ein verrückter Möchtegern-Tanzsong mit dem besorgniserregenden Titel ,THE JUMPIN BEAN" tatsächlich sehr gut sein kann - besonders wegen THE MYSTICS Harmonien und Percussion.+ SAXMAN RED PRYSOCKs schmalziger Gesang und die Art, wie er ein wirklich wahrhaftiges ,HAREM GIRL" evoziert.

Genre:Organic Grooves
An in-depth look at the 1970s catalogue of the Uruguayan label Macondo and the roots of Subtropical music: bomba, cumbia, guaracha, merengue,porro, plena... 21 tracks by essential names such as Sonora Borinquen, Conjunto Casino, Combo Camagüey, Sonora Cienfuegos, GrupoMaracaibo, Grupo Antillano... Compilation and notes by Nandy Cabrera aka Selectorchico. Talking about Subtropical music could be seen as heresy butit's necessary heresy. Necessary in order to start telling the story of this music born in the Caribbean but performed from the south, with its owncharacteristics and temperature. We're talking about a peripheral phenomenon: the Uruguayan INDIE label Macondo and its discographylinked to the 70s Montevideo dance music scene. Here we have a selection of some of the most prominent and best recordings created and releasedby Macondo between 1975 and 1979. Artists sought to emulate tropical music styles popular in Caribbean and Central American countries likeCuba (guaguancó, guaracha) Puerto Rico, Panama (bomba, plena, merengue) and Colombia (porro, vallenato and, of course, cumbia), but within thisprocess of adaptation and hybridisation there are elements, procedures and codes that spawned a music that possesses a post-territorial identity anduniverse of its own.

The recordings that the sisters Elia and Elizabeth Fleta made, hand in hand with music arranger Jimmy Salcedo in the early seventies in their native Colombia, remained hidden like lost pearls in the undervalued musical pop history of Latin America until today. Their concise and natural mix of styles sways between soft-pop with a touch of tropical-pastoral funk, singer-songwriter sweetened by the subtle perfume of Caribbean music and the psychedelia of a world in the midst of discovering all the possibilities offered by the recording studio. These elements blended graciously and fortuitously, brimming with freshness, in a perfect partnership of sharp melodies with lyrics inspired by a genuine juvenile curiosity about life's mysteries, love and nature in their simplest forms.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Blazing a trail by playing some of the hardest hitting and far reaching modern salsa for 23 years now, Bio Ritmo have grown into one of the most intriguing and influential Latin dance bands of the last two decades. They are true rebels who have defied being pigeonholed and have helped pioneer a new generation of musicians (aka nueva generación) that thrive on the spirit of experimentation that once defined the 70s Latin sound that became known as 'salsa'. From hipster rock clubs in Brooklyn to 'salsa bars' in Cali, Colombia, Bio Ritmo keeps the bodies on the dance floor with their nitty-gritty, vintage grooves while turning heads with their experimental synth tones, innovative harmonies and thought provoking lyrics. They convert the skeptics who only know the overly commercialized, tacky veneer of Latin music and challenge the purist who hitherto believed the genre died during the 90s. They have a fierce, almost punk rock DIY ethos that pervades their attitude and style, releasing their records either by themselves or on indie and hip hop labels like Merge, Fat Beats and, Electric Cowbell. They cite Stereolab and Brazilian psychedelic music as influences in the same breath as name-dropping Ray Barretto, Roberto Roena and classic Fania records.

Free from any scene or genre constraints, Akron manages to combine all these sounds in a unique and totally personal way."Voyage Of Exporation", his debut album, takes us on a trip across different worlds, as if we were on board of the Enterprise and there were a new tune waiting for us at each planet.

After the lauded first volume, this second in our "Cumbia Beat" series includes again tracks by the most important bands of the genre.Peruvian cumbia, also known as "chicha", brings together tropical music styles from Colombia and Cuba, Western influences such as 60s beat and psychedelic rock, and mixes them with indigenous melodies from the Amazonian jungle and traditional Andean songs.The result is a unique and vibrant style of music which reverberates with life. Peruvian cumbia is currently being rediscovered by new audiences and there exists a thriving international club and live venue scene.+++ The "resurrection" of Peruvian tropical music, of psychedelic cumbia or, as others like to call it, chicha, is perhaps one of the most surprising musical phenomena in recent years.The number of reissues, new releases and bands that have begun to play chicha or covers of tropical Peruvian classics in Argentina, England, Russia and the United States has multiplied.This cocktail of electric guitars, Caribbean percussion, Andean pentatonics and psychedelic soloing, synths, moogs, güiros, wah wahs, timbales and fuzztones was simply too striking to go unnoticed.Elements of rock, folklore, música criolla, Andean music, Amazonian music, Colombian cumbia, salsa and even psychedelia intermingle in this "cannibal" genre capable of devouring and assimilating every possible influence.Both Enrique Delgado and Manzanita, the two great founding guitarists of the genre, made music that absorbed all possible manner of styles.We feature not only tunes from Delgado with his group Los Destellos and from Manzanita but also from their side projects: Delgado's Los Casmeños and Manzanita's El Monje Loco.Los Girasoles, Los Yungas, Los Beta 5 and Los Ecos continued those sonic explorations. In the case of Los Girasoles, their great singer "El Chévere" Félix Martínez shows his tropical skills in 'La bocina'.Although this compilation consists mostly of instrumentals, a classic of Peruvian tropical music, 'Colegiala' by Los Ilusionistas, is included with vocals from Carlos Ramírez "Centeno".Los Beta 5 would never turn to the sung format. Their instrumentals represent the best of the first era of Peruvian tropical music: playful bouncy guitars, simple but charming riffs, tropicalizations of ballads and certain rock classics.Another group that has in their origins instrumental beat spirit and sound are Los Ecos.The sparkling clean guitar sound of their leader Beto Cuestas always shines in songs filled with a delicate pop sensibility and melodies that oscillate between melancholy and danceable experimentation.Los Yungas had recorded songs in which música criolla and huayno are "cumbia-nized", but the more significant point of departure happened a year later when Los Demonios del Mantaro released a historic single with 'La chichera' on one side and a tune called 'Peti pan' on the other.Its composer, Carlos Baquerizo, decided to make music not with a great orchestra but with a small band consisting of a snare drum, a güiro, a sax, a clarinet and a harmonica.Baquerizo was also the first to introduce an electric guitar in Peruvian cumbia in Los 5 Palomillas, a side project of Los Demonios.The influence of the "provincial sound" would be felt by many other guitarists, such as Tito de la Cruz, from Los Titanes; Aniceto Salazar; Pancho Acosta, from Compay Quinto; and Lener Muñoz, from Grupo Celeste.One of the most original and surprising guitar sounds in Peruvian tropical music would be that of Maximiliano Chávez from Los Orientales de Paramonga, who created a very peculiar style of tropical music with deep basses, galloping percussion and wah wah guitar.But if there was a place with the biggest party and explosion of sounds, it was the Peruvian Amazon, where large cities and small towns were infected by the tropical virus.From that wide spectrum we have selected the two most influential groups. Los Mirlos, with their guitars and hypnotic grooves, achieved the most popular and transnational of the Amazonian sounds.The other Amazonian miracle was Juaneco y su Combo, led by Juan Wong. Their music, full of references to Amazonian mythology and to ayahuasca (a psychoactive drink), featured the guitar of Noé Fachín.Their sound emerges like a message from another world where the party is still going on and the pavement hasn't covered the rainforest.(Alfredo Villar)
