Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Groove along with the soundtrack to the funkiest film never made with these boogaloo sounds from the legendary Amphonic library of themes and incidental music (much of it available here for the first time). All the music was recorded between 1969 and 1974 and was originally used by TV and radio companies for themes, jingles and incidental music. Rediscovered in the 1990s by retro club DJs satisfying their appetite for a harder, more aggressive groove dug by these 1960s-styled tracks and the decadent atmosphere evoked by the 1970s pieces. Hard beating acid pop and funky Hammond grooves are littered throughout this collection. The glorious Carry On Camping tootling of "Carnaby Chick", the whacking fuzz stomp of "Running From Danger" and the quirky Hammond funk-out of "The Groupie" demonstrate why these sound are so popular with clubbers. --F.B.Hawkes

Ever wonder where the music was from when they turned on the radio on a film, or what they danced to one of those wow fab groovy discotheques?
Chances are it was composed by one of these anonymous composer featured here and supplied by KPM or Amphonic.
This CD is what it is - a journey into (now retro) generic music - with a few tunes that you might recognise from the odd advert or played as a bed in a TV or radio programme.
Every one who I've exposed to this CD seems to love it - although they seem to tire easily and go back to calling me a retro weirdo!

Many of those who made recordings for the Amphonic Library were ex band musicians from the early 50s.Don Lusher for instance was in the Ted Heath Band and took it over after Heath passed away
