Subtitled: The Spacey Folk Electro-Horror Sounds of the Studio G Library. G Spots is the first-ever retrospective of Studio G, one of the smallest, but finest music libraries to come out of the UK. It was started in London, in the late 1960s by advertising man John Gale. He realized that most library music at the time was still very much "light orchestral," so he decided to change things: across 48 albums between 1969 and 1982, he made quite an extraordinary impact. With a small stable of talented and versatile musicians, Studio G produced albums covering all major library music genres: horror, pop, industrial, children, jazz, and avant-garde. Throughout production, Studio G were deliberately restricted to small budgets, so the musicians had to be creative with limited time and studio equipment to have any impact at all. The results were a stunning collection of stripped-down, simple but extremely effective compositions across a variety of genres, many employing heavy delay, reverb, echo boxes and early synthesis. G Spots begins with humble tracks with treated guitars and musical jaunts into outer space; we then move through jazz, easy-listening and oddball sounds into weird, dark and often quite unsettling future music. There are drifting synthesizer soundscapes, unsettling vocal tape-loops, even the odd bit of electro-voodoo. With music this interesting and different, it's understandable that bands like The Chemical Brothers and UNKLE have sampled some of the more obscure corners of the catalog. It will also come as no surprise that originals of the rarer Studio G albums fetch huge amounts of money when they come up for sale. In fact, it would take you years to find all these original albums, but here are the best and most interesting bits all together for the first time, which is so much easier. So welcome to G Spots, a stunning and occasionally deep collection of library music that will influence, educate and entertain.
