Hi, I'm another one who stumbled onto this site after falling down the rabbit hole while looking for Spider-man music.

You guys do seriously amazing work.

So glad I found this community!

I recently bought the I Marc 4 box set, and I've got a couple of KPM comps as well. I've been slowly getting more and more into library music over the years (I think it started with Italian soundtracks and then expanded from there). I was hunting around for a reasonably priced copy of Take Six's "Blueprint" (good luck!), when I stumbled across this site. Amazing stuff!

Welcome. I drifted into library via Italian soundtracks and the Easy Tempo comps back in the day.  Enjoy the music!

Hi all--thanks for adding me! I've been a lurker on this forum (and the old one) over the years and for some reason only now thought to join. Much respect for all you've accomplished.

When I was a kid, I remember getting hung up on bits of music in old Hanna Barbara shows like Johnny Quest or Scooby Doo. My next touch point was David Holmes' Ocean's 12 soundtrack. Impossibly cool, anonymous and familiar all at once. Then in college, I found Sven Libaek's "Inner Space" via The Life Aquatic. The notion of library music started to dawn on me. And 2013 was the breakthrough year. I found a record in the "Weird & Unclassifiable" section of my local shop: Egisto Macchi's "Voix." I quickly bought the rest of the Roundtable reissues they had, started to do my research online, and here we are today.

I'm fascinated (sometimes overwhelmed) by the insane variety of genres/styles/modes that makes up library. I've been thinking some about how it might be possible to make searching library albums/tracks more accessible--how to attach more descriptive metadata and the like. I guess that's always been an existential concern of library...all those back cover notes for "medium slow pop," or "urban love themes," you know...

Anyway, glad to be here! I don't have a ton of actual music to share, but I'll try and contribute when I can to the conversation ;)

Hi all. Great to be here and thanks for the add! Long time infrequent lurker warmed by the continued existence of LMT and prompted to join by a chance meeting of one of the faithful on the dreaded FB. Started down the path recording themes from the TV on to cassette as a nipper. OSTs leading into library LPs many years later. Recently put together some new shelves for the library LPs which sort of led me here.  :)

Welcome.  Looks like quite a collection.
(I also used to tape record off the TV.  With the occasional Yell "Quiet Duke" to the dog)
