    Not sure if it is late 60s or early 70s

    But "a new exciting experience" by "the free pop electronic concept" from Belgium as ace with loads of groovy tunes with electronic effects.

      Aye, Free Pop, is a goodun. Wallace has it - asteroid sound erffecks an' all.
      This be th' Belgian duo Jess & James. Their fairst lp "same" be smackin' , coonfooundedly guid organ-drenched psychy , but th'secoond lp is too muckle lik Spencer Davis/ R&b- gaff fer me taste .

        Check out Piero Umilianis elecronic library work- I have a 2LP compilation that has some incredible stuff on it.
        Sven Libaek's Solar Flare is probably great - I have one or two tracks from it on a comp.
        I have one italian library record by Mario Molina (i think, at work now so i can't check) that's got some good moog-tracks.
        Italian library comps like Stroboscopia etc usually has some excellent stuff.
        Of course there's lots of goodies on the Blow-Up comps, and also I have a comp with tracks from the french Montparnasse library label that's great.
        The Electronic Toys vol1 on QDK Media has lots of electronic tracks from German library records - unfortunately most are quite short and all are not all that interesting in my opinion.
        From Sweden(!) then - Hans Edlers experimental electronic album Elektron Kukeso has had some attention the last years, mainly because of Sonic Youth's praise - actually I've never heard it (original is rare as hell), but it's been reissued on CD with bonus tracks.

        Not collecting library originals (but happily picking up comps) this is the best I can offer as recommendations.

            wallace mate. please sort your grammar and spelling out!

            its really poor. sorry!

            For electronic libs check out lots of Illustration musicale. 100% electronic has some belters.

            The umiliani 'todays sound' is staggering and if I had the notes I would plop it down for this in a second. Really funky orchestral moogy business.

                  some good Tele music LP's with an electronic flavour. Bernard estardy's Electro sounds vol 2. Another exellent LP estardy did was Electronics, also on tele music. Am still waiting to hear Electro sounds volume 1. Giampiero Boneschi did some exellent work for the italian CAM label, I dont think all his stuff is great,he's produced alot of lib's, but he has made some beaut's. And of course Anthony king a.k.a. synthersizers unlimited produced the exellent Electrik bazaar on Peer and features on 'Lost star' also on peer with the exellent 'fillagree funk' i gotta get this LP. I know Jacky giordano had at least one moog outing with his 'Philopsis' library LP on freesound, a real peculiar record not what you would expect. Also worth noting two absolute gem's on freesound 2 'Ovation' burblr pie and petrol flowin. 'Harlem pop trotters' get the reissue while you can it's well worth it.

                  Purely out of curiosity does anyone know the nationality of Anthony king? a brit by any chance?

                  I'll have to look out for that 'free pop electronic concept' sounds good

                    all the freesounds are wicked - philopsis being the best. The mix of mental synths and hoofing drums on it just begger belief!

                      I have yet to get freesound 3 4 & 5, I have heard parts of schifters no Idea what the others are like. Philopsis I find real strange, I like it alot, of course 'steel mongoes and magolia' are exellent but I always feel unsure of it, dunno why, it's a definate grower.
                      I have been listening to Ovation recently, I got this a while ago but had only really listened to the two electronic tunes, as these were the only ones I had recorded to my PC. Have recently been listening to it from beginning to end, and have been appreciating it alot more, has a real nice folk, jazz vibe to it.

                      Got my self an mp3 player, Have downloaded a few Lib lp's from PC onto it. Has been getting me through the data entry temp job I have at the mo 'uhhhh'...
                      I find some library lp's deserve to be listened to from beginning to end, they really work as a whole LP

                      Are there only 6 freesounds?


                      • #12
                        Challenger is Freesound 3. Its good but not as good as philopsis or understood.

                        Schifter is Freesound 4. I put one of the tracks on my psych micks. Great stuff.

                        Crank is Freesound 5. Has one track which is pure hip hop drums then goes mental. I had this with a green sleeve and sold it. So I need it back with a proper sleeve.

                        There are 6 freesounds but I heard whispers of 7-8 but Ive never seen them.

                          I believe so, yes - I assume it's the same one who wrote a few songs for the early, psych-era Status Quo?


                          • #14
                            Yeah I've seen Crank in the green sleeve, I thought that was the proper sleeve.

                            freesound 7 and 8!! oh my!
