Hi everyone, I have been browsing around the place for a while but, in all the confusion, I realised that I'd forgotten to create a profile. Problem fixed now.

congratulations  for this wonderful  blog
I'm a bit confused because I can not understand the difference between the term "not library  " and "library music" For example, I just downloaded and listened to the album shared by Greta in the Libray Music sector - CML 126 - Don Powell, Adolfo Waitzman , Franco Campanino - Theme With Variations - Sentimental Modern (1977): it contains some excerpts from soundtracks  from the movies  black emanuelle n2 / the climber  la ragazza dalla pelle di corallo  that according to my opinion should be included in the sector " not library "
Please explain the difference to me

Many library records were used in films but as opposed to producers paying a composer to write music especially for the film.  Lots of tracks are well known (ie, The Gonk used in Dawn of the Dead) but it is a library track first and foremost.

That's a big topic, puppy azzy. A basic explanation can be found here => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Production_music

Many library records were used in films but as opposed to producers paying a composer to write music especially for the film.
In Italy, the opposite is often the case too, like with this CAM LP; already composed scores intended for specific films or TV series saw reuse as library cues. This is pretty much never mentioned on the releases themselves, however.

What 'makes' this "library music" in this case is the fact that it was released as part of a series of library releases, see the sleeve for instance:

Also, most of these cues were never released anywhere else.
