 - Black Sound From White People

  • Augusto Martelli

    Black Sound From White People LP (1972)

    Philips

Italian composer Augusto Martelli is best known for the theme song of the 1970 film Il dio serpente which became a hit in Italy.  In crate digging circles, he best known for this album.  Besides having one of the illest album titles of the 70s, Black Sound From White People delivers a plethora of groovy euro funk chock full of the flute salad.  Highlights include "Loco Love Motor" (check the killer drum break towards the end) and "Krypto Blues" that should get the loop diggers open (in a Grover Washington kind of way). This begs for a proper reissue the limited 2012 bootleg sold out quickly and can't be purchased on Discogs.
