B4, Snozzle, is fat disco drums and crazy electroid bass solo - top notch Hawksworth madness.

A few interesting tracks on this, production-wise. B5 has big drums with electronics, B7 sounds like it should be in a David Lynch movie - descending minor chords and voices.

A couple of nice tunes and good, subtle production on this one. A9 has a lot in common with Percy Faith's First Light.

Lovely production and some nice tunes here - not your typical '80s brash sound.

Some nice, easy tunes on this, including a female scat jazz 3/4 number.

This album is a Rolls Royce of a record. Top musicians, in the zone, playing sublime compositions with ultimate subtlety. If I ever want to know if an album is decent, I play this and then listen to the other one again. Not much stands up to it.

The whole of Side 2 sounds like it would have been on Afro Rock if LPs were 15" instead of 12".

So many people pay stupid money for faddy library albums that are in fashion. This record is awesome from start to finish, always has been, always will be. Do yourselves a favour and buy it. (I've listened to a lot of library records).

The cover says 'spectacular rhythms!' and it is not wrong. Sparse arrangements, heavy minor key vibes and beats that are ready to be lifted.

This is a promo for Vakko, a Turkish clothing company. The lyrics translate to something along the lines of 'we are young, we like fashion, we like colour, Vakko is fashion, we like Vakko' (hazy memory from a conversation with a Turkish ESL student many ... See full review

This album is mental. Stunning composition, beautifully played, wonderfully recorded. Dark, heavy, aggressive jazz orchestral vibes, flitting cleverly between the abstract and the structured. Should be selling for big $$$ - get a copy while it is cheap.

Solid soundtrack featuring lush strings and minor chords throughout, interspersed with nice synth and e-piano moments. The main theme is strong and reappears consistently, the best version for me being the vocal track at the beginning of side 2 (the tune ... See full review

The sparse, dark, squelchy electro version of Papa Was a Rolling Stone is absolutely awesome.

Not mentioned on the ST track list, but I'm pretty sure this was used by Quentin Tarantino in Kill Bill 2.

A couple of fantastic Peter Thomas tracks on here - short but moody and very much like something off Raumpatrouille - along with some dark and lovely Bert Kaempfert tunes - who'd have thought he had such nastiness in him?!?

A beautiful and bizarre mix of sounds, from easy listening to baroque via latin and jazz-funk, all washed over with a soundtrack style. Surprising arrangements take songs from sparse trio to full orchestra and back. Gorgeous, dynamic recording and a ... See full review

This seems to be music from or for a stage play performed at the Théâtre des Mathurins, Paris, in September 1969, written by Daniele Lord and Henri Garcin, directed by the latter.
