The Music Library !!

The Music Library is a compilation of cover artwork from some
of the most important, and beautiful, library LPs made throughout
the 50s, 60s and 70s. It features a foreword by Dammers
and an exclusive CD of rare recordings. Library music (also known
as source music and, occasionally, mood music) was first made for people
who needed cheap, somewhat generic music as backgrounds for animations,
low-budget advertisements, and television programs. Unavailable commercially
to the public, this music was pressed beginning in the 1950s in limited
quantities, and then sent directly to production houses and
radio stations for use when necessary.
