Out Now – Unusual Sounds: The Hidden History
of Library Music
Anthology Editions is proud to announce the release of Unusual Sounds: The Hidden History of Library Music! In the heyday of B-Movies, low-budget television and scrappy genre filmmaking, producers looking for a soundtrack reached for library music: royalty-free LPs of stock recordings for any mood. Unusual Sounds is a deep dive into this hidden musical universe from film collector David Hollander. The book features histories, interviews, and extraordinary visuals from the field’s most celebrated creators, along with original art by Robert Beatty and a foreword by George A. Romero—whose use of library music in Night of the Living Dead changed film history.
