One of Bacharach's strangest records! The soundtrack was written for the huge flop musical Lost Horizon – and it features all vocal tracks, sung by the likes of Shawn Phillips, Sally Kellerman, and Diana Lee. The overall feel is very sing-songy, with kind of a children's them sort of sound ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the fold-out gatefold sleeve. Spine has a spot of tape & a small rip. Cover has some light wear.)
A great Elmer Bernstein score for this creepy psycho drama! At the best times, the score has the jazzy overtones of Walk On The Wild Side or Man With The Golden Arm – serious and soundtracky to be sure, but with some great work in a drama jazz style that was always Bernstein's best calling ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has tape on the spine and a promo stamp on back.)
Nice tune! The groovy main theme to this one far outlived the film, and showed up all over the place in the 60s – on instrumental theme records, TV spoofs, and other oddball sources. The rest of the score's pretty great, too – and features some compelling orchestrations by Bernstein, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Lenny ... LP United Artists, 1974. Very Good ....
Although the great Lenny Bruce never appeared in the Bob Fosse film based on his tragic story, Dustin Hoffman did a pretty great job of recreating his style, and of bringing together good performances of some of the most important monologues by Lenny, which are often missing from his other recorded ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Very weird soundtrack to this spooky 70s film starring Peter Boyle! Bobby Scott did the score, and it's hipper than most of his other stuff – with a mixture of jazz, groovy, and straight orchestral scoring. Jerry Butler sings vocals on the tracks "Where Are You Going?" and "Yo ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a split top seam, and some splitting on the bottom seam. Label has a bit of marker.)
A nice little Georges Delerue score to this quirky and sentimental film from the mid 60s. The tunes are all relatively short – and a mixture of Delerue's usual French-tinged themes with other tracks that have a bit more of a regal composure, in keeping with the performance of Alan Bates in ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Gypsy Girl ... LP Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ....
$0.49Just Sold Out!
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Grasshopper ... LP National General, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ....
Quite a groovy soundtrack – a mixture of vocal and instrumental numbers written by Billy for this groovy film about the liberated woman of the late 60s! The album sports a few vocal numbers by bigger stars – "Look Again" by the Brooklyn Bridge, "Used To Be" by Vicki ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

We're not entirely sure what the status of this one is – but it sounds a lot like the original version, except that some of the instruments seem to be a bit transposed in the mix. Our guess is that United Artists wanted to make more money of this, one of their best-ever selling albums – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unusual one for Henry Mancini – and a real depature from his usual groovy soundtrack work, in favor of a western-themed batch of tunes! As you'd guess from the title, the album's got a distinct "Texas" sound – with tracks that kind of mosey along in a spaghetti western ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Ah for the glory days of American International Pictures! This obscure film stars a very young Robert DeNiro and Bruce Dern, as well as Shelly Winters in the title role as Ma Barker! Despite Don Randi's roots in the hip LA instrumental scene, the music on this one is mostly in a 20s sort of style ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has masking tape on the top & bottom seams, clear tape on the spine, and a promo stamp on back.)
A weird little soundtrack – composed and performed by John Simon, and mostly in a fake rock group mode, ala some of the Tower Records soundtracks of the same time. The instrumental "Last Summer Theme" is a nice one – with some spare electric harpsichord over sweet strings ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the strangest biker films you'll ever see – largely because the stars are Bette Davis and Ernest Borgnine! The music was composed and conducted by Billy Strange – and while it's definitely got some of the Mike Curb touches you'd expect from a film like this, there's also a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Promo pressing. Cover has a spot of tape on the spine and two stickers on the back. Label has a sticker.)
A nice little soundtrack – one of the more serious efforts on the Tower Records label, and a nice batch of soulful tunes, both instrumental and vocal! Bob Summers was the musical director of the album, but a number of the cuts are written by Sammy Fain and Charles Martin – and the best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A stark and jagged soundtrack for this mid 60s thriller that starred James Garner and Eva Marie Saint. The album's one of the few soundtracks on the Vee Jay label, recorded after they'd moved from Chicago to LA, and right before they went bust – and it's a pretty nice set of tracks by ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A pretty cool little soundtrack to this early Sean Penn film – one that starred him as a tough JD on the streets of Chicago! The score was written by Bill Conti – bu tthis album doesn't include any work by Bill at all – just some great electro soul tracks that burst out with a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Weird mix of stuff on here, but it was the record that broke Public Enemy's "Bring the Noise" onto the world, and you've got to love it for that. Also includes LL Cool J's great "Goin' Back To Cali", one of the greatest lost soundtrack cuts of the 80's! Uh...there's also a duet ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
