Ultra funky library record reissued for the first time. Big Beat was originally recorded in 1973 for Music De Wolfe, the world's longest running music library (started in 1909 they seem to still be going strong today). Inspired by Lalo Schifrin's soundtracks for Bullitt and Mission: Impossible, Nick Ingman's compositions added funky rhythms to the post big band soundtrack world. And true to its name, the beats are quite large on this record. Spacious and punchy, the drums truly drive the music. Never intended for commercial release, original copies of Big Beat fetch upwards of $400 on the used market. Perhaps due to its scarcity it has only been sampled a handful of times. Twelve tracks in all. Released by Modern Harmonic on black vinyl housed in a replica sleeve with extensive liner notes from Brother Cleve.
