Shhhh in the Library
Here we have a fine example of Library music, left over music from the the golden era of TV soundtracks that were never picked up for any show. Back in those days, there were massive music production companies that just had artists play exaggerated music with theme suggestive rhythms and melodies. Then all these assorted tracks would be packed up in thematic records and sold to whoever for TV use. These records are usually really hard to come by because they were never produced for the individual consumer, only the TV production companies. What further adds to the rarity of these records is how the music companies that produced this music simply regarded it as worthless and many of them simply dumped out their their masters for each release to make space in storage warehouses. This particular library is one of the Patchwork Library series, a french production company that was really active during the 1970's to 1980's. The album is Patchwork Orchestra 10 - Children / Sport and was probably made in the early 1970's. Discography is after the break.
