Rare psych, Moogs and Brass

This is pretty much the maddest slice of music I' ve been sent in ages. Just the title alone gives that away. Out June 30th on Buried Treasure Recordings. Available via | Bandcamp | Juno Records | Etch Shop

"Eighteen tracks of rare & previously unreleased music from the Sonoton music library.

Founded in 1965 by Rotheide and Gerhard Narholz, Germany’s SONOTON library remains one of the largest independent production music companies in the world. This compilation focuses on psychedelic grooves, synthesized funk and big band belters produced for Sonoton between 1969 and 1981.

Many of the featured composers also worked for other libraries - John Fiddy for KPM & Bruton, Walt Rockman for Studio One, Sammy Burdson for Conroy & Colorsound and Claude Larson for MFP.

Compiled by audio archivist & producer Alan Gubby (Revbjelde / Jung Collective) who also produced the BBC Radiophonic Workshop compilation “The John Baker Tapes” on Trunk."
