Giuliano Sorgini "Lavoro E Tempo Libero" UST 335 - Goldfinger (Usignolo) 1980 Dark Funk Killer!!

    Happy New Year! It's been a minute but I've been listening to this Sorgini masterpiece a bunch and thought I'd share it.  It's alot different than some of his earlier work but it has that perfect early 80's Italian Library sound full of close mic'd and clear funky greatness mixed some very beautiful chill jams.  When I first got into library stuff, obviously Giuliano Sorgini was one of the first clear leaders in the genre with his Zoo Folle and Under Pompelmo record being the top of the records to hear.  This one wasn't even really talked about, maybe because of it's obscurity but it I think it's my favorite of his at this point when only referring to the records where he is the sole contributer.  The mystery behind Usignolo contributed to the fascination with this record as well once I became aware of it's existence.  There are a bunch of records with this same cover (Postal Area Group, Rock Music, The Yellow Page, Disco Music, Band's Harmony, as well as a couple others) This being the best of the bunch even though there are great jams on those records as well.
   As for the music well it starts with the most hip hop ready library sample track I've ever heard,"Ingranaggi Pesanti" I'm not a Hip Hop guy but it's unreal how ahead of the time this track is.  " Cadenza Dinamica" "Ciclo Continuo" and "Turbine In Moto" are dark proggy funky gems that I just can't get enough of.  Every hit is so clear and dope, the occasional shreddy guitar solo gets me in that cheesy air guitar mode for sure.
      I was lucky to find this a couple years ago and it seems that Sorgini might have signed the back cover as well.  I hope some of you can find one as well but here is my 320K rip to tide you over.  Enjoy  MY RIP

Domenico Di Vito (Oscar Lindok) - Immagini E Colori - DDA1 Aris-1974 REPOST

    I Got a few requests for a full rip of this record so here you go!

Here is one very special record by Oscar Lindok AKA Giacomo Dell'Orso and husband to iconic singer Edda Dell'Orso.  Absolutely top notch, next level shit, from prog to spaced out bossa to dark side of the moon stretchings.  Record starts off with "Immagini E Colori" a proggy gem for sure, shifts between acoustic guitar and rockin organ parts.  "Spensieratamente" might be the best song here with it's signature Lindok synths over a bossa beat that is just absolutely amazing.  "Storia A Lieto Fine"  is a beautiful and melodic funk jam, reminding of a glorious drive with no traffic.  "Verso Il Domani" I just love, like a futuristic 50's pop song with amazing synth lines, yet I can see how someone might take it as cheesy, but it just hits me perfectly.  "Terra Amara" has no drums but no problem making an impact.  It has a similar style to those classic Dark Side Of The Moon songs I love so much.  "Senza Problemi" is an amazing proggy tribal jam with tape echo for days!  Bottom line if you are a fan of this man, this one is essential and if you know Aris Librarys or Soundtracks (Lingua D' Argento, Calamo) it is mega rare and rarely comes up for sale.  GET IT HERE!

Rino De Filippi - "Tema Amore" - Nazionalmusic- N1023 - Beautiful Allusive Filippi!!!

    Hello and happy new year!  I'm back from my Hiatus with a seldom heard or seen Rino De Filippi record, "Tema Amore" on the Nazionalmusic label best known for their Supermakert series and the Zelda 45 by Marcello Giombini.  This is the early Filippi style from 1972 so there aren't any synth or fuzz sounds but mainly a laidback beautiful landscape of wordless vocal, organ, acoustic guitar, drums, bass and harpsichord.  Melody is the driving force behind the songs even though Filippi's signature rhythm patterns are there as well, favorites for me have to be "Romantico Viale" with it's minor harpsichord intro straight into absolute beautiful chord structure.  Also "Giovane Amore" that takes you all over the place, as soon as you think you know where it's going, a killer chord steps in and sends you a different direction.  These recordings sound super raw but absoulutely high fidelity and could easily imagine them being recorded in a day or two but at the same time so much mastery is here it would take most groups 10 times longer to achieve.  Anyways it took me a very long time to even hear this record and I hope it gives at least some of you some joy!  As always My Rip From My Collection at 320K.  GET IT HERE!
