I'm Going To Set Myself On Fire - "Challenge Of The Salt" OST- Charles Bernstein 1973 Private Press Killer Documentary Soundtrack!

       Honestly I'd never heard anything about this record until I heard a clip on the excellent Boxes of Toys bog.  I luckily was able to track down a copy and surprisingly it's from my hometown of Los Angeles, well Hollywood to be exact.  I still wonder if there's any of these floating around some Hollywood thrift store or something, haha.  It seems to be super obscure, no discogs info and just one lonely copy on ebay for some insane price.  So it doesn't just drift into unheard obscurity I decided to share a rip.
   The only other records I have from Charles Bernstein are some "Nightmare On Elm Street" soundtracks which are obviously recorded much later than this one, which he recorded under the name, I'm Going To Set Myself On Fire, which is just awesome.  The record came out on some label called MVC, which I think might be the first and maybe only release from this private press company.  Mostly what we get is incredibly funky and soulful jams with vocal and instrumental versions.  The standout is definitely, "Raceway" which just sucked me in right away, what he accomplishes in 2 minutes is astounding.  Great songwriting and killer breaks if that's what you are into.  Usually vocals are a turn off for me but I really dig, "White Salt" and if you don't like them, well hey there's an instrumental version too, yay! "Here We Are" is really great as well and there's many other moments that are completely jam worthy.  So check it out and I hope y'all can find copys at some point,everything pops up eventually!
Here it is ripped from my personal collection at 320K.  Chris Tillotson        GET IT!

Rino & Luigi De Filippi "Daybreak" RCA SP 10062 (1976) Full Rip In 320K

   Just VPI'd this record and re ripped it, thought I would share it in full this time!  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  utilize 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?!  Just VPI'd this record and re ripped it, thought I would share it in full this time!  Enjoy  GET IT HERE!
