Product Description

This compilation highlights some of the best music written for the Keith Prowse/Peter Maurice (KPM) and Conroy recorded music libraries during the 1970s. The accent is firmly on the funk, and here it's incorporated into a variety of settings including small group, big band and orchestral. Originally recorded specifically for use as underscore material in TV, radio and film productions, and, as such, unavailable to the record-buying public, this CD marks the first time this music has been made commercially available. The work of several of the UK's leading composer-arrangers is represented. Hammond organ legend and general all-round funkateer Alan Hawkshaw contributes with three killer tracks - Traffic, Challenger and String Boogie - the last one co-composed with drummer and fellow library music legend Brian Bennett. From the pen of Keith Mansfield comes three sublime, funky big band tracks - Before Summer Ends, Groovy Move and Gospel Truth - from his ultra-rare 1976 Conroy LP 'New Dimension' that featured an all-star British jazz line-up including Pete King (alto sax), Brian Smith (tenor sax), John Taylor (piano) and Brian Odges (bass guitar). There is much more to savour on this superb release, with exciting, progressive funk scores from the likes of John Scott, Nick Ingman, John Cameron, James Clarke and others. `Sounds of the Times' - music that is of its time yet also ahead of its time.

Vocalion's rampage through the KPM vaults continues with 25 more tracks covering the period from 1970-77. 3 of the tracks, all Keith Mansfield compositons, were recorded for the Conroy music library. I've not heard anything heavier than Dave Gold's 'Locomotion'; it's the Led Zep of library. (Uncle) Alan Hawkshaw's 'Traffic' has the players simulating traffic moving to a grind. James Clarke's 'Short Cut' sounds like an impatient driver trying to escape the city. It's not all heavy, quite the contrary in fact: Dick Doerschuk's 'Vegas To LA' is a breezy soulful vibe that conjure up a coastal stretch with a gorgeous vista. Keith Mansfield's 7 minute tour de force 'Before Summer Ends' is simply gorgeous. I'm amazed at how music this good was never released commercially. John Scott's cinematic 'Flight Of the Phoenix' has a heavy eastern vibe running through it and is immensely satisfying. Nick Ingham's 'Speedway' is a killer slab of funk. There's a few clunkers, namely Keith Mansfield's 'Breezin' and James Clarke's 'Tenderly Yours' which are too easy for my palette, but otherwise the comp is faultless.

As usual the mastering is pristine and the booklet stuffed with info.

The material on this cd sounds amazing, some are funky, some are easy,I cannot believe music this good was never made commercially available. I must mention the remastering on the vocalion label. I do not know what wizadry they use but all the sounds sound pristine. I will be buying more kpm releases on this label soon. 10/10.
