One of two Be With forays into the archives of revered British library institution Conroy, we present Dramatic Tempi / Larry Robbins Background Rhythms – C-L-A-S-S-I-C library breaks and beats set of heavy drums and louche funk – originally released in 1975.
As a single LP, Dramatic Tempi / Larry Robbins Background Rhythms is two distinctly different collections of music. The first side, Dramatic Tempi, is made up of four tracks each from Sammy Burdson (one of the many, many aliases of the mighty Austrian composer, arranger and conductor, Gerhard Narholz) and German library legend Klaus Weiss. On the second side, Larry Robbins Background Rhythms is a lighter, poppier affair, but it’s not without its drum-heavy bangers.
This re-issue of Dramatic Tempi / Larry Robbins Background Rhythms has been mastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis from audio from the original tapes. Richard Robinson has handled reproducing the iconic, hypnotic original Conroy sleeve. Essential.
