Quadro Group - Night Dreams, 1988
A brief description only on discogs for the artist and  this album which sounds deceptively like an early 80s record rather than late 80s-- perhaps a time machine spy.  Of course, the former CCCP did take some time to catch up to the West when it came to po...

Lithuanian composer Mindaugas Urbaitis: Mindaugo Urbaičio Dainos EP (1978) and Dainuojantis Ir Šokantis Mergaitės Vieversėlis (1981)
This composer's career started with a gorgeous EP of 4 short and simple songs with the utmost beauty and perfect delicacy, backed by acoustic guitar and a chamber string section.  Vocals are by Gintare Jautakaite  (who also performs on the other album).  An...

Back to the dreaded Mini Jazz Club series with No. 30: Alternativa, 1981
This particular EP,  no. 30 in the consecutive series to which we've devoted so much love and attention , is really the brainchild of someone called Pavel Kralicek , who doesn't seem to appear in many places otherwise.  I would love to know I'm wrong about ...

VA (incl. Rolf Kuhn and Roland Kovak) in Filmmusik 3
When you look at the contributors on this library it's definitely alluring, but unfortunately it turned out disappointing.  So first up you have Rolf Kuhn , brother of our beloved Joachim, but his tracks are pure old-school conventional jazz with nothing ei...

Full Throttle Jazz Band - Full Throttle! Haruhiko Ohyabu Sound Action - 1970 from Japan [review only]
Here's a stunning libraryish unknown from the vaults, hidden from our modern eyes from almost half a century ago, and if you glance at the database page you might, like me, begin to 'salivate like a Pavlov dog' at the contents hidden therein-- I mean, we've...

Epidermis Muster Burger (1982) by request
I fully forgot about this request until just now I reread an old comment by chance. The band is well known for its Gentle Giant-like harmony vocals styled prog on the 'monster' album Genius of Original Force , but it made another later album in the early 80...

Timna Brauer & Elias Meiri in Orient Live, 1987, by request
Despite the (to me) very unpromising title of this 2-LP album due to the fact I don't have a taste for ethnic pounding with simplistic chanting nor live and poorly-recorded songs (at least it wasn't solo piano), this turned out to have some exceptional comp...

Francois "Faton" Cahen in Piano Concerts, 1975, by request
I referenced Francois Cahen earlier with the album he made with Didier Lockwood called Thank You Friends , which was just delightful, but most know him anyways as the keyboardist and leader of the great Zeuhl group Zao who made a string of gorgeous fusion a...

Back with Jun Fukamachi's OST Mishione from 1980 and probably the last from him here
Oh boy do I love Jun Fukamachi. This past spring and summer I listened to all his records again over and over and explored every hidden crevice and nuance in his works.  So it was important to me to collect all the tangential materials from this period, suc...
