Claude Perraudin - Mutation 24 (1977)

This one is in similar style to Heldon, Patric Vian and Ose. Melodic synth music with space sound fx and arpeggiators. The most popular album by Claude Perraudin and my personal favourite!

Claude Perraudin - Speed (1980)

An excellent and rare library album by Claude Perraudin, french composer of electronic and stage-screen music. Most of the tracks have a funky-groovy style with guitar passages, clavinet, and melodic analogue synth lines. As the title suggests it could be a soundtrack for an imaginary film involving racing cars or people who drive fast cars.

Gong - Magick Brother (1970)

Psychedelic rock band formed by Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth in France in 1969. Gong became pioneers of a new brand of psychedelia/space-rock/trip-rock - with a conceptual ethos involving aliens and alternative realities. An international outfit, increasingly linked to other bands of the Canterbury scene, many musicians came and went.
In 1970, the world got its first taste of the original pothead pixie, Daevid Allen's Gong, as Magick Brother was released in France on the BYG label. Allen's wife, Gilli Smyth, penned all the tunes on the album, and Allen's now-classic "Ph.P." drawing style graces the inside of the gatefold. Leaning a little toward the pop end of the spectrum, Magick Brother is a fairly light album, devoid of the blatant psychedelic/hippie qualities which shine through so brilliantly on the later Camembert Electrique.

On 12 June 2014, Allen underwent surgery to remove a cyst from his neck. It was determined to be cancerous and he subsequently underwent radiation therapy. In a statement, released on 5 February 2015, Allen wrote that the cancer had returned to his neck and also spread to his lungs, and that he was "not interested in endless surgical operations". He was "given approximately six months to live".[6][7]
On 13 March 2015, his son, Orlando Monday Allen, announced through Facebook that Daevid Allen had died.[8] The Planet Gong website announced that Allen had died in Australia, at 1.05pm, "surrounded by his boys".[9] Allen had four sons, two with Gilli Smyth and two with other mothers.
Reviewing Allen's life, The Daily Telegraph said:
Allen revelled in being the court jester of hippie rock and never lost his enthusiasm for the transcendent power of the psychedelic experience. He once remarked: "Psychedelia for me is a code for that profound spiritual experience where there is a direct link to the gods." That he never attained the riches and fame of many of his contemporaries did not concern him.[4]
RIP Daevid Allen.

Moggi (P. Umiliani) - Tra Scienza E Fantascienza (1980)

Recorded at Sound Workshop, Roma. One of the most beautiful electronic library albums of the 80s. You will love it

Moggi (P.Umiliani) - Omaggio Ad Einstein (1976)

Here's Piero Umiliani, travelling through time and space, all the way from 1976, when he made this album in the Sound Workshop studio. The title in English is ‘Tribute To Einstein’.  It is beautifully simple music, and is therefore a fine antidote to the complexities of scientific theory.
It was published at Umiliani's "Omicron" label. The history of Omicron and other independent labels of the master Umiliani began long ago , when the musician, just eighteen, was looking for a publisher for his compositions .
Umiliani , forced to invent pseudonyms to not overcrowd the field of sound design with too many records to his name . Zalla , Catamo , Tuscus , Rovi , Moggi , Ruscigan are some of these nicknames with which he signed his compositions . Those records , which rarely exceed three hundred copies of circulation , are made by hiring the cream of Italian musicians including pianists Antonello Vannucchi and Enrico Pierannunzi , bassist Giovanni Tommaso , drummers Vincenzo Restuccia and Gege Munari trumpeters Oscar Valdambrini and Marcello woods, to name a few .

M. Zalla (P. Umiliani) - Problemi D'Oggi (1973)

A rare and obscure concept Library on the problems of modern life, released on the Liuto label and produced by the master of Italian soundtracks himself, Piero Umiliani, here under his alias M. Zalla. 'Problemi D'Oggi' falls into Umiliani's highly experimental, psychedelic / electronic phase and was recorded in 1973 in the legendary Sound Workshop studio in Rome. the music presented here deeply reflects the pessimistic nature of the issues in charge (social problems, terrorism, world crisis, industrial production, conflicts, mafia)
In this lp, Umiliani uses early drum machines, a modular synth and a hammond organ. The tracks have an abstract-minimal cinematic style creating tension and generaly a mysterious atmosphere.
I dedicate this album to the crisis of the European Union (as of 2015).

Piero Umiliani - Temi Descrittivi Per Piccolo Complesso (1976)

This album is full of jazzy melodies and relaxing atmosphere with fender rhodes, flute and brass instruments. An ideal album for a spring afternoon with a freddo capuccino!

Piero Umiliani - Synthi Time (1971)

Produced in Umiliani's own laboratory of sound and vision, the Sound Work Shop, Synthi Time comprises 14 selections, many of them variations on recurring compositions, done in a variety of musical styles and tempos, executed in a breathtakingly simple synthesizer vocabulary.  Pastoral, exotic, and strangely innocent, Umiliani paints a picture in the mind of a bizarre, alternate dimension dream of a nonexistent children's animation.  It also sounds a lot like a genius playing around with new synthesizers and their tempo/style settings. He's also playing a Hammond organ and a spinetta (a smaller type of harpsichord)

Piero Umiliani - Musica Dell'Era Technologica (1972)

"Piero Umiliani has taken things too far with Musica Dell’Era Tecnologica. Way too far. And since he dares to visit innermost heliospheres and microscopic galaxies that are deemed outright crazy and non-digestible to even the most diehard composer of Moog and synth material, he succeeds in his own, very peculiar way" (

Piero Umiliani - Continente Nero (1975)

Piero Umiliani was born in 1926 in Florence-Italy. He was a composer of film scores, most famous for his song "Mah Nà Mah Nà" of 1968, that was originally used for a Mondo documentary about Sweden (Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso) and became world-famous in 1977 when performed for The Muppet Show. The song was also an anthem of the Benny Hill show. In his long career Piero Umiliani composed and recorded 190 soundtracks, 40 library albums and 35 TV title themes.

"Continente Nero" is Umiliani exploring not only the traditional African music but also several other musical branches (jazz, funk....). The whole album sounds like a spooky documentary that invites you to an unforgetable adventure

Teddy Lasry - Modern Way (1979)

Library music is the most undocumented form of music out there since it was (and still is, albeit not quite as vibey as in the 60’s and 70’s) created for film and televisions shows and never sold to the public. It was pressed onto very limited edition vinyl and only circulated in the “Industry. French composer Teddy Lasry has several albums published in the Parisian "Patchwork" label.
Modern Way, has both sinister synth, groovy rhythm passages and killer improvisational rhodes and guitar solos…the best of all worlds.

Teddy Lasry - Seven Stones (1979)

An excellent album by Teddy Lasry and one of my favourites. In this album he uses many great synths such as the ARP Odyssey, Moog Micromoog, Prophet 5, Korg PS-3300, Korg Polyphonic Ensemble and the RMI keyboard computer which was the world's first digitized portable musical keyboard instrument. Simply beautiful!
