Two compact platters of promotional jingles of the strangest flavors! A smorgasboard of unheard music from the eccentric icon paired with his wife Dorothy Collins, Mel Tormé and more! Who knew jingles about Krystal Hamburgers, beer, & ExLax could be so utterly delightful?! Packaged in a hardbound book-style jacket including a replica of an original '60s article about Raymond, new notes from the executor of his estate, and photos galore! Tingling tartness of jingle perfection! A first-ever collection of Raymond Scott's 1950s-60s TV and radio commercial jingles - with vocalists and announcers, instrumental beds, demos, outtakes, guide tracks, and alternate versions.

New Podcast: INTERRUPTIONS #17. Vietata la vendita. Sonorizzazioni e commenti sonori: library music made in Italy. Curated by Raül G. Pratginestós http://rwm.macba.cat/en/curatorial/raul-pratginestos-library-music/capsula Italians have always had a unique way of mixing music and drama, a special sensibility that accounts for the dominant role of music in the history of Italian film to the extent that many of the most highly admired soundtrack composers (Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, Bruno Nicolai, Piero Piccioni and innumerable others) are Italian. It's no wonder then that Italy, which had its own major international film industry during the fifties and sixties, generated an enormous demand for music for films of the most diverse genres (from neo-realist or psychological dramas to spaghetti-westerns, peplum, gialli, spy movies, poliziotteschi, comedies and erotic films) and engendered a parallel music industry with composers from the most disparate fields (from jazz to 'serious' music). This prominent sub-industry was the backdrop to the fascinating and still relatively unknown world of library music 'Made in Italy'. A scene with very particular traits that is stirring up increasing interest in the strange parallel world of 'library music'. You can find the complete series here: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/interruptions-tag/ Enjoy!
Digging this: I hope they continue to do these. Would like to see a Sonoton comp.
Highlights from Jonny Trunk's library music collection
RWM posted a topic in Music DiscussionNew podcast: MEMORABILIA. COLLECTING SOUNDS WITH.... Jonny Trunk. Part II Jonny Trunk picks his fifteen favourite tracks from the fifteen best library music companies in his collection. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/research/memorabilia_jonny_trunk/capsula Playlist: http://rwm.macba.cat/uploads/20121008/Memorabilia_Jonny_Trunk_eng.pdf Creator of a collection of some eight thousand records, Jonny Trunk admits that he has never ceased to follow a maxim that his parents instilled in him at a very young age: 'If you buy something new, you lose money.' Nonetheless, it isn’t the figures that make his record collection exceptional and worth sharing, but the two thousand records of archival or library music that it includes. It isn't easy to sum up the concept of library music or to explain what it is and what it's like. Library music, 'sonorizzazioni' (another of the terms used in this fascinating musical underworld), or archival music, refers to sound recordings produced for professional use in the context of film, television and radio. It is a prolific industry that, according to its scholars, achieved its greatest splendour from the sixties to the mid-eighties, and is governed by series of aesthetic, production, marketing and distribution rules that lie outside of the established channels. It is utilitarian music, created for commercial purposes, in which, paradoxically, musicians and composers take on a professional role and find themselves forced to resolve highly abstract matters and situations, such as developing a narrative that is subordinate to images (in soundtracks) or coming up with an entire imaginary without any pre-existing references. Library music is also a poorly documented genre, full of oddities and bristling with strange experiments.
Luke Vibert presents Fresh Treasures [Bruton Music, 2011]
saikobjorn posted a topic in Luke VibertThis just came up on What - a selection of library music from the '70s by Luke Vibert. I thought there were just the two Nuggets compilations, and now it seems a third one has been out for a couple of years already?! News to me, probably jazz to some, but I thought some of you would like to know about it. http://www.unippmglobal.com/#/composers/Composers%20I-P/Luke%20Vibert.aspx
