Alan Parker & Madeline Bell
The Voice Of Soul

The Voice Of Soul is a library-soul LP by session singer Madeline Bell and composer Alan Parker. Originally released in 1976, the record is notable for two reasons - being issued simultaneously with its instrumental album The Sound Of Soul, and for ‘Love Is All’ and ‘You’ve Got What It Takes’ being used in infamous porno-comedy flick Pretty Peaches. Now it’s been given a remaster and reissue job by Be With Records, a label which is really going in hard on the library music at the moment.

Alan Parker & Alan Hawkshaw
Black Pearl

Re-issue of the much-loved Black Pearl album, released originally in 1973 by musician Alan Parker and composer Alan Hawkshaw and which utterly sums up kind of driving, orchestral funk that soundtracked so much of the early Seventies. It’s also long been a treasure trove for hip-hop artists seeking samples! 

Alan Parker / John Cameron
Afro Rock

John Cameron has composed numerous film scores in his time, chief among them being Kes. Alan Parker is a virtuoso guitarist who has worked with cameron on a number of projects including songs by Donovan and the CCS version of 'Whole Lotta Love' which was used as the theme to Top Of The Pops in the ‘70s. On Afrorock they have fun mixing some funky African rhythms, fuzzy wah wah guitar an library music. It’s basically the best soundtrack to a ‘70s cop film that never was. On Be With.

Alan Parker
The Sound Of Soul

Originally released in 1976 as the instrumental accompaniment to Themes International's The Voice Of Soul, Alan Parker’s much-coveted record of library-soul now gets reissued by Be With Records. Original copies of The Sound Of Soul regularly fetch mega-money on the vinyl black market, so it’s a good job that this new edition comes in at a fraction of the price. Les Hurdle and Mike Moran - both members of the de-facto Themes International house band The Rhythm Section - also contribute a couple of numbers.

Madeline Bell / Alan Parker
That's What Friends Are For

UK library music from 1976. From the sound of That’s What Friends Are For, it could have been a big chart hit: it’s catchy, funky, soulful. But Madeline Bell and Alan Parker’s fine work was destined for background use only… till now! This is the first time that this single (with both vocal and instrumental versions) has been released commercially, thanks to the Jazzman label.

Alan Parker
One Summer

1983’s British TV show One Summer was blessed with a particularly interesting soundtrack produced by Alan Parker, whose session work saw him turning up on Kate Bush and David Bowie records. All sorts of sharp atmospheres here. The whole of his original score (the tracks are very short) is presented on this 7” on Finders Keepers.
