kpm 1000

Library music was an interesting genre of music from the 60s/70s that was essentially made for  television and movies.  Think back to any B cop/gangster movie from the era.  This music served a purpose from movie producers because they could use the library tracks for considerably less money than a popular track in which royalties would be too great.  Nowadays, these tunes have found a cult following amongst producers/djs because of their stark, funky vibes.  This mix is a nice introduction to kpm music recording library; England's premier library producer.  There are hundreds of lps in the kpm discography, but the 1000 series (with the green covers) are among the best.  Don't know if this mix is a legit release or not, but it's a great collection of some of the choice cuts from kpm's vaults.  Enjoy!
