Super sounds indeed from the Bosworth music library. Here is what the liner notes say -
"This is a collection of incredible sounds, never commercially released. For many years they sat, silently in a small archive just off Regent Street in London WI. Discovered in late 1995, these sounds from the sixties and seventies really show the progressive attitude of composers of the day. Listen, and you will agree that the production is also exceptional.
At the time of its original release, the music was destined for TV, film or radio. It was pressed in very short runs, then sent to broadcasting houses, advertising agencies and the like. It has never been commercially available but the occasional touch of music could be heard brilliantly backing broadcasts, including a germ killing sequence on a late sixties Domestos commercial.
The Bosworth Music Archive is unlike any other. This collection is aimed at all contemporary music buyers. The sounds will always stand the test of time and new music will, without doubt, benefit from its release.
Here you will hear a hectic, eclectic mix: rare electronic experimentation from 1965; strangely educated funk and fusion; dark pulsating jazz for unmade movies. Hey, maybe even a naked beach party.
Most of the music has been taken from the original 1/4 inch masters and some tracks are test pressings."
This is one of my favourite library music compilations, there is so much weird and wonderful experimentation going on. The electronic tracks are especially intriguing, it's unlikely you will have heard anything of its sort before. Enjoy.
