John Barry/Matt MonroQuiller Memorandum ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $14.99
A sweet little soundtrack by John Barry – very different than the full-on style he used for James Bond – but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The music was written for a spy thriller starring Alec Guiness, George Segal, and Max Von Sydow – a moody film that's handled here by Barry with a spacey quality that's mighty nice – lots of isolated instruments floating along, sometimes with weird effects that are almost watery – all in a space that's somewhere between Barry's work for The Knack, and that new sense of space that Morricone was bringing into 60s soundtracks. The result is a real treasure – one of Barry's best film scores – and titles include "Autobahn March", "Downtown", "Oktober/Walk From The River", "Quiller Caught/The Fight", "Quiller & The Bomb", and the theme "Wednesday's Child", sung by Matt Monro. LP, Vinyl record album

New GoblinZombi – Dawn Of The Dead (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of the first great horror soundtracks by the legendary Goblin – penned for the wonderful follow-up to Night Of The Living Dead! The music is a wonderful mix of Goblin's cool keyboard lines with some fuzzier guitar bits – those rockish elements that the group virtually introduced to horror film scoring in the 70s, but which so many others would borrow from them strongly in the next decade! And given the film's slightly tongue-in-cheek approach, the use of the music works wonderfully – never cheesy, but with a knowing quality that really shows the strength of the group. Titles include "Zaratozom", "La Caccia", "Oblio", "Risveglio", "Zombi", and "Safari". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny KeatingRobbery ... LP
London, 1967. Sealed ... $23.99
A killer soundtrack from jazzy Johnny Keating – a set that we'd rank right up there with his other non-film work of the 60s! The score's got a bold, edgey sort of quality – one that shows a real maturation in Keating's music since the earlier part of the decade – but still that great sense of rhythm and repetition that first made him stand out so strongly. The horns are especially great – bold and brassy one minute, then laidback and compressed the next – filled with great colors and tones that show a link back to Stan Kenton sounds of the 50s, turned towards much groovier ends for Johnny's 60s generation. All tracks are originals, and the titles include the lead vocal "Born To Lose", sung by Jackie Lee – plus "Kate's Theme", "Gang's Arrest", "Accident", "Diamond Robbery", "Breaking Into The Mail Van", and "Passing The Mail Bags". LP, Vinyl record album

Nino RotaLa Dolce Vita ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label RCA International pressing with deep groove. Side 2 has a few clicks.)

Stephen Sondheim/Ken ThorneFunny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Sealed ... $0.99
A great early moment for composer Stephen Sondheim – but a score that's made even groovier here by the film work of Ken Thorne! Thorne brings out a sprightly quality to the music that's maybe missing from the original stage score – and his few instrumental passages are especially great, with some exotic instrumentation on reeds, light strings, and percussion – in a way that's almost a parody of some of the Italian gladiator and heroic scores of the time! Titles include "Roman Embassy", "Lovely", "Tintinabula's Dance", "Lovely", "Riot At The Funeral", "Erroneous Return/Orgy Music", and "The Dirge". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeLink (aka Extrasensorial) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), New Copy (reissue)... Around September 5, 2014 (delayed)
A spooky little horror film – and one that's served up here in some equally dark instrumentation – but which sometimes has that redemptive quality that we love in some of Morricone's best work from the time. There's some great watery arrangements on a few tracks – drifting out isolated instrumentation through larger backings in a really brilliant way – and titles include "Through His Eyes", "Video Telepathy", "The Link", "Mirror", and "Sinister". LP, Vinyl record album
