The second Pheon Records LP release is a trip through the Cometa library music vaults. To buy the originals featured here would cost you thousands of pounds today. How mental is that! Full colour sleeve. Standard vinyl, cellowrapped.
As most library music geeks know, some of the finest, oddest and most sought-after library music comes from Italy. But collecting it is an expensive business, and one full of risks – many library LPs are one trackers but will still set you back hundreds. So, here we present a twelve tracker - twelve killer cues of library gold, jazz, abstracted oddness, killer percussion, amazing ideas, beautiful sound – and all for a bargain price. These cues were all recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and all come from possibly the most desirable library label of all, “SR”, a company originally set up by The Sermi Film Co. The original recordings are now mostly owned by Cometa, hence our album title. The composers are masters of the genre, the musicians faultless. It’s a superb comp, very limited, with no chance of a repress.
Pheon is a new label started by Jonny Trunk with James Pianta from Votary / Roundtable. Both have a love of obscure library music, film music and jazz. Using those musical fields as a starting point, the label will be issuing very limited, vinyl only short runs of desirable and obscure LPs, compilations and new old discoveries.
