Brassmusic from the Sonton Library 69-81 / Various
2014 compilation. 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 and Bruton, Walt Rockman for Studio One, Sammy Burdson for Conroy and Colorsound and Claude Larson for MFP. Compiled by audio archivist and Electro producer Alan Gubby, who also produced the BBC Radiophonic Workshop compilation THE JOHN BAKER TAPES on Trunk. RARE PSYCH, MOOGS & BRASS is the first album release on Buried Treasure and a must for collectors of dusty grooves, moog-tastic Funk and Psychedelic Jazz.
