    Summary

    More highlights from the German music archives of Golden Ring & Happy Records, pulled from the most famous library albums of the catalogue. 17 unreleased signature sounds in a wicked jazz-funk-cosmic-latin-boogie style by Peter Thomas, Klaus Weiss, Juan Demonio, Mladen Franco and others. Stand out tunes for the dancefloor, from heavy big band jazz over latin funk to proto techno, with heavy drum breaks, fat bass lines and plenty of DJ cuts. Second selection from the best Golden Ring "Sound Music albums" and top rare Library LPs from the Happy label, e.g. "Orion 2000" or "Esto Me Gusto". 1st release of essential movers like "Porto Allegre" or "Beach Bunny", comes from the master tapes with new liner notes.

    So called "library music" or "production music" is used as theme or background music in radio, movie and television. Composers and musicians mostly work anonymously and their tracks appear on numerous "production music" labels, not available for the consumer. The most famous German labels for library music from the 1970s and 1980s are Selected Sound, Sonoton and Ring Musik, who all published various music styles like pop, rock, jazz, funk, electronic or even classically adapted sounds. Many well known German artists already started to work for library music companies in the 1960s, some under their own name but others under frequently changing pseudonyms. The related library LPs were pressed in small amounts and sent out to media companies, where they became shelved without any use and often gathered dust in some forgotten basements as a result. When these recordings suddenly appeared in DJ and collectors circles during the early 1990s, a new interest in library music of the 1960s and 1970s occured.

    The Ring Musik company was established in 1964 as a publishing house for production music in Frankfurt/ Main and started to produce countless LP albums until the 1980s, presenting hundreds of tracks on their special labels "Golden Ring" and "Happy Records". Some of the most sought after funk tracks have been already compiled for the "Colours of Funk Vol. 1" release in 2009. With this second compilation from the same archives, we dig deeper into the fascinating German library productions of artists like Peter Thomas, Klaus Weiss, Jürgen Franke or Frank Pleyer. Especially Peter Thomas is well known around the world because of his many exceptional soundtrack recordings, while Klaus Weiss belonged to the best jazz drummers ever to come out of Germany. Frank Pleyer was among the most versatile international composers for light music and received many gold and platinum awards. Other excellent musicians like Jürgen Franke used to work behind the scenes and composed for many different production music companies, appearing under various pseudonyms like "Juan Demonio", "Ken Aldin" or "Frank Mantis".
