'Sun-Kissed' - Roger Webb - excerpt 

Well hello, welcome back, it's been a while.

First thing I want to say is that I've just re-upped the whole damn blog back to 2008, as some kind soul destroyed my previous upload account. Hell for me, but good for you, so feel free to browse all the way back into the previous decade - it's all there ... for now at least.

As always, I love people to comment on the music and say hi, otherwise I may as well just keep it on my computer - so the best way to make me post more than once a year is to chat, and not lurk. This isn't an advertising-run download bonanza site, it's one person sharing music for conversation.

Today's share, Library Rhodes 3,  is a new compilation of library music featuring the ol' electric piano in a series of jazz, funk and bossa style tracks.  The last two volumes of this - Library Rhodes 1 (2010) and Library Rhodes 2 (2011) - were extremely popular, so I hope you enjoy this one as well.

Click the preview players above - they work, but take a few seconds to start.

The music comes from a range of library music labels. There are old favourites like KPM, De Wolfe, Themes International and Amphonic - but also a focus today on Italian library : Fonovideo, Music Scene etc, with a particular focus on composer Oscar Rocchi, both under his own name and his alias 'Chiarosi'. In iTunes, you'll find the names of the source albums for each track in the 'comments' column.

Enjoy it, explore the blog and have fun.
If you like this compilation, check out more rhodes compilations.
See you soon.

Winb said...

Hey Simon, the downside. You post far too infrequently nowadays. The plus side. You give us loads of quality when you do post. Loving the compilation. Please don't make us wait so long next time.

As a fan of the previous two library comps, I'm really looking forward to this one. Also thanks for massive re-upload! I'm going to spend the morning in the archives for anything I might have missed.

mandalorian55 said...

good to know that thing about lurkers, im a huge fan of your compilations and even for your compilations I started to play rhodes, so i want to thank you for the music you´ve shown us trough these yeas, Im from México and play in different proyectes, if you want i could show you some of the recordings we´ve done.

Again, thanks for sharing and I was wondering if you have another hip hop-rhodes compilation, the ones you´ve done are awesome!

Cas Emmanuel said...

Thanks! ive been a lurker for some time and i love all you offer

Leonard Dyrkorn Gregoriussen said...

Wow, thanks for all the re-ups, as I've only recently discovered your blog(and music blogs in general) it's really highly appreciated.

I've noticed a lot of the blogs you've refered to in the past have been taken down. If you could refer to any blogs you deem to be great, that would certainly be worthy of awe ( :

On a side note, your site, together with theneedledrop, is the best portals to which through discover music I've encountered

Keep up the good work when you've got the time and feel like it

My best regards

tim said...

Thank You!!!
Your compilations are amazing. Thanks to your brother who put me onto your blog after hearing your brilliant version of sexual healing in his restaurant.

Lewis said...

Simon, let me say that I check your blog periodically to see if anything's new, and when I do see something - or see the link on T.U.B.E. that you've posted - my eyes light up because I always know it will be good. Your taste is great and you have a way of picking out the gems I would never find, with the connective thread of the Rhodes.

I am looking forward to DL'ing this comp when I'm off work. Thanks so much Simon!

Lewis said...

Oh, and I meant to say: THANK YOU for all the re-ups! Can't wait to surf around and find some goodies... especially Gil Scott Heron related. Thanks again Simon!

Simon666 said...

Thanks for all the comments guys, great to see that people still come here :)

Captain Dan said...

Simon,

I'm not sure if comments left on older, re-upped posts are showing up or not (I've left a few since discovering you re-up'ed all this mad joy!!!) - so I wanted to leave a note here that I hope you see, to say THANK YOU for all of this. I'm a fiend for all of this music and am having fun trolling around getting items that had dead links before.

Thanks so much!

Simon666 said...

Hey Captain Dan - Got all your comments, I just hold them all till I can check to them to avoid spam :) Thanks for all the feedback and glad you're enjoying the stuff here :)

LYSERGICFUNK said...

Wonderful vibes, Simon, thank you very much.

Just in case, you or anyone else might want to take a look at "Butcher Brown" on youtube.
I immidiately fell in love with that group and their tunes.
You can download some of their music from their website: butcherbrown.com

Greetings from a small island :)

klou91 said...

Hey Simon,
Glad you back. I will check this new comp with much interest.
This is the opportunity for me to thank you for making me discover the great Peter Herbolzeimer and a couple of other sounds also.
May the music live for ever (and if it those, you will have donne something for it)
peace

Not able to download it Simon…..it says the file is down due to site maintenance.

Tempro said...

Just stumbled on your blog... WOW! This looks amazing. Thanks for everything Simon, will be fun to check this out!!

Anonymous said...

Hi Simon,
It looks like some of the links are down... is it best to leave any requests for re-ups here, or on the individual pages? The two I saw first that I wanted to get are the Erykah Badu and Rose Royce posts.
Thanks!!

Simon666 said...

Hi tswift -
I've replaced it with a zippyshare file in the post. All other links are down because the adrive server is, in fact, under maintenance, so the rest will have to wait

mageorge said...

All my collections were never to see again. when I tried going back to all my favorite blogs everything was gone..... Are Your collections CD or Vinyl. Are you into production? Thanks again Ali M

Simon666 said...

Hey Ali - Glad you got some of the music back! :) Re your questions : I do some production but never seem to get it finished :) My comps are not on CD or vinyl, they're just made for this blog. Thanks for commenting! (And thanks everyone else as well).
