De Wolfe @ Half Price (compilation)



Une excellente et copieuse compilation proposée il y a quelques années par notre ami Johan Dada, grand connaisseur en matière de lounge et de bizzareries musicales rétro. De Wolfe@ Half Price picore dans une demi-douzaine d'albums des années 69 à 71, pour nous offrir une sélection de compositeurs et formations majeurs de l'illustration musicale (The Roger Webb Sound, The London Studio Group, Johnny Hawksworth - avec un merveilleux morceau d'exotica orientale : Journey into Fantasy).
Les titres sont dans les commentaires.

While most sound library compilations focus on the funkier or beat-heavy tracks, this great gem goes for the groovy and jazzy numbers - and picks the best of De Wolfe's light and breezy output, including some killer bossa and soundtrack-type cuts. There's a really jazz and swing feel to the whole set -- no surprise, as many of the talents were actual recording jazz players themselves, simply working in the studio for De Wolfe in order to bring in a little extra cash. The whole thing's great - really overflowing with great numbers that will show you that the sound library scene is still wonderfully under-tapped! Titles include "Gentle Eyes", "Heavy Lace", and "Coaster" by Roger Webb Sound; "Supercharger" by The London Studio Group, "Baby Jane" by the Soft-Slipper, "Waiting For The Summertime" by The Cool, "Swing-A-Day" and a beautiful exotica cut (Journey Into Fantasy) by Johnny Hawksworth.
