Default Francis Monkman – “Strident Theme”

Francis Monkman – “Strident Theme” (1978). This is from Bruton Library Music BRI2 - Tempus Fugit.

Apparently it was used in the 1985 "Return to Glory" NBA film, 1982 Australian Grand Prix and a number of others.

Previously I couldn't really get into the synthy sports soundtracks because they often lacked the horns and rhythm guitar pick/wah of the 70s, but I must say that I'm starting to like them. And as for that change at 1:21...

Default Bruton Music - Light My Fire (1978) Album

Bruton Music - Light My Fire (1978) Album

This is a fun library compilation by Hawkshaw, Hurdle, Ricotti, Gray, Monkman, Bennett & Mansfield. I think that they deliberately based them loosely on 60s and 70s hits and invited us to listen out for the originals. But they’re certainly far enough away for them not to be covers in any way. In some cases the song titles are quite clear (e.g. “Superdude” or “Hawkwind And Fire”). Sometimes it sounds like there are two or more song influences in a track. There are others where I have no idea.

I find this album very enjoyable in its own right. Maybe I’m reading too much into all of this and spouting complete nonsense, but it was fun to listen out for other influences, which I’ve suggested in italics below. If anyone has any other suggestions then please feel free to add them.



[00:00] 01. Hawkwind And Fire
Let's Groove by EWF? Jungle Boogie by Kool & The Gang? And The Beat Goes On by The Whispers? Don’t know enough Hawkwind.

[03:02] 02. Hawkwind And Fire
(alternative ending)

[03:40] 03. Stateside
not sure, perhaps It's Too Late by Carole King at the start. I like the fire brigade at 5:13

[06:35] 04. Superdude
Superfly by Curtis Mayfield?

[08:21] 05. Wonder Groove
something from Stevie Wonder, perhaps “Isn’t She Lovely”?

[11:54] 06. Hard Sell
not sure

[14:36] 07. Move On
Move On Up by C Mayfield?

[16:03] 08. Fuel Injection
not sure, but it's probably a floor filler on Neptune

[18:53] 09. Light My Fire
Light My Fire by The Doors and Pick Up The Pieces by Average White Band?

[21:54] 10. Sunshine Shuffle
The Hustle by Van McCoy?

[24:37] 11. Disco Fever
Funkytown by Lipps Inc. and Disco Inferno by The Trammps?

[28:40] 12. Blockbuster
not sure

[31:22] 13. Disco Dynamite
Midnight Express by Giorgio Moroder and Knock On Wood by Amii Stewart?

[33:30] 14. Discolypso
not sure. Some riffs sound familiar.

[35:52] 15. Reach Out
Reach Out (I'll Be There) by Four Tops and That's the Way of the World by EWF?

I came across Geoff Bastow who did a lot of work for Bruton in the 70s and 80s (along with his brother Trevor). Here he has written/arranged the tune "Take That' from the album JWV414 "Double trouble". A nice tune with great tempo. It's as if the flute is going as hard as it can, with the guitar playing a nice solo. And then they finish together.

Have since been looking around for more angry flute. I listened to Jethro Tull and Ian Anderson, including the concert at Madison Square Garden 1978 and the 1976 concert at Tampa Stadium below.

Would anyone have any recommendations for other really strong flute pieces, where the flute is really going for it? No matter what genre. Thanks.

Default Dün "Eros"

Quote:
"DÜN (1981) came from Nantes in France, an instrumental sextet with ambitions of uniting all "known" types of prog. DÜN were the bastard offspring of Frank Zappa and MAGMA, with a heavy dose of RIO sensibility. The result was a mix of Canterbury-, Zappa-, RIO-, Zeuhl- and symphonic impulses. Eros was the group's only album. Recorded in 1981 and based on a popular concept written by Frank Herbert, "Dune" would become as some sort of reference with the track "Arrakis". All the tracks are consistently good, even on through the bonus tracks. The four studio tracks smoke from beginning to end." - Source: Progressive Room (YT)
Sorry for moving away from the library/production thread momentarily and for jumping all over the place, but I thought I would stretch my ears more. My hook was Arrakis at 9:36 with great flute, which prompted me to listen to the rest of the album. I know I should listen to more songs with lyrics, but there are also so many instrumentals like these to get through.



1. L'Epice
2. Arrakis
3. Bitonio
4. Eros
5. Arrakis (1979 demo version)
6. Bitonio (1979 demo version)
7. Arrakis (1978 demo version)
8. Eros (1978 demo version)
9. Acoustic Fremen (1978 recording previously unreleased)

Musicians:
- Jean Geeraerts / electric & acoustic guitars
- Bruno Sabathe / piano, synthesizer
- Pascal Vandenbulcke / flute, recorder
- Thierry Tranchant / bass
- Laurent Bertaud / drums
- Alain Termolles / percussion, xylophone, vibraphone

Default Jože Privšek ‎- Križanke (album - 1976)

I'm still trying to find QX's baseball tune, in the meantime here’s some big band jazzy funk from Eastern Europe. Not library/production as such. But it has a nice cinematic groove with Miles Davis vibes.

Jože Privšek ‎- Križanke (full album, jazz-funk / jazz fusion, 1973, Slovenia, Yugoslavia)

I've been trying to get more into Egg, since I found out about them a few years ago.
As the YT poster says,"One of the best tracks off the album "The Polite Force". What a bummer listening to the story of Egg and how they didn't get much attention back in the day. Their music kicks so much ass!!
Yeah sounds about right.

Bassist Dirk (Mont) Campbell is still going strong, but he lost his daughter Anna in 2018 when she left UK to fight alongside the Kurds. A complicated story, but I just wanted to post a great tune which still whips me up rhythmically every time.

Default Janko Nilovic - Éditions Montparnasse 2000 (MP 2000)

Quote:
“Montenegrin-French composer, arranger, conductor,..., born in 1941 in İstanbul, Turkey. Worked with library labels such as Éditions Montparnasse 2000 (MP 2000). His oeuvre stretches from classical, jazz, and funk to pop, psyche, and easy listening.
Dr. Dre sampled much of Nilović's piece "Underground Session" for his track "Loose Cannons" from the album Compton.
Producer No I.D. sampled Nilović's song "In the Space", for Jay-Z's "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)", on the album The Blueprint 3.
In 2010 Nilovic won a Grammy award for the rap song "D.O.A.(Death of Auto-Tune)," along with Shawn Carter, Ernest Wilson, Gary DeCarlo, Dale Frashuer, Paul Leka, and Dave Sucky
Sampled also by The beatnuts and Joey Badass.”
– source Discogs and Wikipedia.
I saw this was posted by Chiomara a few years ago, so just throwing it out there again as it's an outstanding track.
