Shigeo Sekito – Carly & Carole (1975)

Japanese Shigeo Sekito made four albums between 1975 and 1977, called “Special Sound Series Vol. 1-4“.

This track is from his Vol. 2 and is his funky take on a track originally written by the great Brazilian keyboard player Eumir Deodato.

Should you care to listen to the full album it is available here.

Ananda Shankar – Dancing Drums (1975)

This track is heavy on everything, from sitar over moog to bongos and has a great drum break.

Bengali musician Ananda Shankar worked with Jimi Hendrix among others in USA in the late 1960s but made his album Ananda Shankar And His Music in 1975, after returning to India.

Take a pill and dance like there is no tomorrow.

The Lyman Woodard Organization – Belle Isle Daze (Part I) (1975)

Very slow funky piece from American jazz organist Lyman Woodard and his organization.
From the release Saturday Night Special which is a very sought after vinyl.
Fortunately it was re-released in 2009.

Al Foster Band – The Night Of The Wolf (1975)

Funky track by “Al Foster Band” which was a pseudonym for Italian writers and musicians Ivano Alberto Fossati and Oscar Prudente.

The original title of this track was “Tema Del Lupo” when it was released in Italy in 1973, but American label Roulette changed the title for the 1975 re-release in USA.

Powerhouse – Five Plus Four (1975)

Originally from the Peer International Library Limited release PIL 9029 this is one jazzy cocktail of horns and Fender Rhodes.

The track was re-released in 2001 on Chapell’s Music For Dancefloors: The Cream Of The Chappell Music Library Sessions.

Alfonso Santisteban – Todo Ha Sido Un Sueño (1975)

Released on the Italian cinema label CAM, this moog track could easily have been lifted out from a 1960s movie.
But it is not.

Even though Alfonso Santisteban has been the composer of more than 100 soundtracks this piece is from the library release Spanish Moog from 1975.
