Group Meeting AKA Marcabru (Luigi & Rino De Filippi)-"Daybreak"-SP 10062 RCA 1976 Jazz Funk Grail!

  Just one of my favorite records to listen to by Marcabru an alias for Luig De Filippi, son of Rino De Filippi.  This one is credited to Luigi solely on SIAE database but most likely done with his father Rino from the sounds of it.  You really can listen to this from start to finish and oh god let me tell you it is rare and pretty impossible to find.  It has that proggy jazz feel that the Filippis  utilizes on most of their beat driven records like the wildcat and pound release.  First we start with the title track "Daybreak" just amazing and beautiful mid tempo awesomeness, crazy melodys abound.  Next we get, "Gleaming" with that up tempo jazz funk sound ever so popular in the mid late 70's, with just the right amount of synth coming in half way through.  "Hermitage" comes off right away sounding like a sophisticated yes.  Next we get the banger "Fancy" just perfection, cray bassline and sax solo with that flat and perfect Filippi drum sound, AHHH, so good!  "Consortship" sounds like Filippi totally going for a yes melody and one of the most Filippi sounding songs on the record, totally essential good vibes.  Then the B side, man if you thought the A side was dope the B side is even better.  "Racer" is unbelievable melodic and proggy.  "Glide" is golden funk"  "Afield" is back to that melodic Filippi good vibes style.  "Loose" is by far my favorite jam on here, and perhaps top 5 Filippi jams, that crazy technical jazzy piano riff and the insane drumming, whoah.  Last song of note is, "Meek" the most chilled out and stony jam on here, shit what were they smoking in Italy back then, damn!
  To say I enjoy this record is an understatement, next time it hits the market don't sleep and better go big cause it's not everday you see this bad boy.  Enjoy the soundclips and if you don't don't mind a low quality sound it is on youtube in its entirety but if you can, trust me seek out the vinyl it's so worth it!  Chris Tillotson                             TRADE HERE!

Raskovich & Various-Visioni-SM 5017 Monte Carlo 197?

    I was always so curious about this one, from the fact that Sorgini was involved and also that insanely dope record cover so I thought I would share a review on it with soundclips for all you fellow collectors out there.  You'll now have more info than I had going into this purchase.  The weird thing is that all the Raskovich songs on here, mainly the whole side B are not good at all, haha, The real gems are from the other composers like, Zoffoli, Matrisciano, and Palmatau.  "Impressioni Suggestive Nocturne" is a tripped out psychotic floater with super dope tape delay throughout.  "Puma Sax"is a melodic synth driven jam with driving drum machine, I love it.  "Visione Fantastica" is a chilled out synth driven song also with drum machine, very beautiful!  So check out the soundclips and you decide if this obscure and rare as hell record is worth your money.

Sven Libaek "My Thing" PIL 9006 Peer International 1970

      It's so hard to choose a favorite Sven Libaek record but this one is probably mine.  First off it has "Misty Canyon" which many have heard if not for the comps it's been on.  This song came on during an acid trip of mine as I was watching the trees turn into giants and I will never forget it as long as I live, that groove, those chords and that tumbling brass line, Holy SHit!  This record is worth the ridiculous price tag for that song alone but wait there's more.  You have "Sydney Revisited" with it's insanely good sax & vibes, literally, haha!  Also, "Soul Thing" is just classic and the dark and beautiful "Winds of Fall Creek" that should instantly give you goosebumps, sooooo good!  Just a great early 70's library from an incredible 70's musician on the Incredibly collectible label, Peer.  And are those arms coming out of her chest on the cover, very trippy!  Enjoy this rip @320K from my personal collection.  Chris Tillotson        GET IT HERE!
