        Arecibo - 2022 Reissue

          This 1969 album established Peruvian tres player Mita's career and includes the memorable originals 'Mita descarga', the incredibly fast 'Descarga en botella y güiro' and the intimate 'No aguanto más', as well as versions of Cuban guarachas and hits from the repertoire of Puerto Rican artists like Joe Cuba, Ismael Rivera and Cortijo y su Combo.

              One of the ‘holy grails’ of 1960s Cuban music was not recorded, produced or released in Havana or New York; in fact it was made in Lima, Peru and sounds like a long lost record by Cachao and Tito Puente if they led an orchestra with Charlie Palmieri on piano and Tito Rodríguez on vocals. Always an extremely rare collector’s item, Gozando!! will now be able to reach a wider vinyl-loving audience with this first-time ever faithfully reproduced reissue.

                OS Sambeatles

                OS Sambeatles

                  Rare 1966 Brazilian album with a jazz/bossa nova take on songs by the Beatles, all served up with plenty of great keyboard work performed by the very talented Manfredo Fest and his trio. It was originally released right after their classic 1965 RGE album and has a very similar jazz-based sound. Manfredo Fest was part of the gathering of Brazilian musicians of the late-'50s who were developing the bossa nova movement, and he made a number of trio recordings in that vein from 1961 to 1966. After emigrating to Minneapolis in 1967, Fest moved to Los Angeles where he served as keyboardist and arranger for Bossa Rio and toured with Sergio Mendes.

                  This recording is all instrumental, strongly jazz-based, with piano as the main solo instrument, soaring over the top of some tight, crackling rhythms! The songs are all played with imaginative scents that really take them from their roots as pop songs and open them up as groovers filled with keyboard improvisations.

                  A nice slice of how the bossa nova sound was evolving in its homeland as well as the international impact the Beatles were having on countries outside of the U.S., England, Japan, and Germany.

                    Panal - 2022 Reissue

                      Very rare Chilean album that blends folk and rock in a similar way to one of the most successful bands on IRT: Los Jaivas.

                      A roster of very experienced and talented musicians, including some members of Aguaturbia, was recruited for this project and this self-titled album was finally released in 1973.

                      Fierce percussions, stunning guitar riffs and filtered voices create a unique sound across this only album by Panal.

                      First official reissue with remastered sound from the original master tapes.


                      Congregacion Viene.. - 2022 Reissue

                        Psych-folk prog album by one of the most legendary bands of the early 1970s Chilean music scene.

                        Congregación crafted songs in an Andean style with ethnic atmosphere, we could say they made a kind of psychedelic folk with progressive leanings. This album has conquered new folk lovers around the world and the original LP is yet a very rare collector's piece.

                        First official reissue with remastered sound from the original master tapes, including a bonus 7" single with non-album tracks from 1972.

                        This album digs deeper into the most experimental recordings in the archives of Nelson Records. The label was founded in 1970 by the musicians Maurizio Majorana, Antonello Vannucchi and Roberto Podio (who along with Carlo Pes would be known as I MARC 4), after establishing the Telecinesound studio, right where the New Italian Library Sound was created. They recorded with Armando Trovajoli, Piero Piccioni, Ennio Morricone, Piero Umiliani, Henry Mancini and many others, and created a special sound, mixing jazz, pop, rock and psychedelic music, to produce records aiming to be used by the programmers of the Italian RAI television.

                        The music of "Thrilling Mortale" is mostly special effects, drum breaks, fast bongo rhythms and groovy Hammond background sounds inspired by cinema noise experts who did not use any musical instruments and had only a few objects to recreate the noises of the films; from horse rides to closing gates, everything was done in the traditional way. I MARC 4, instead, would recreate those sounds with bass, guitar, drums, piano and Hammond organ.

                        Many musicians, record producers and film directors still like, look for, rediscover and re-use for their work, and the music on these albums recorded by I MARC 4 between 1970-1976 have reached cult status among library music collectors.
