A very groovy set of cop show jazz from the classic TV show 77 Sunset Strip – every bit as tasty as some of Henry Mancini's work for similar programs at the time! Warren Barker's got a really playful approach to the tunes on the set – mixing together straight jazz with some nice ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, staining on the back, a split spine, and some splitting on the other seams.)
While some of this material was released later by Carlos in a different recording, this is the soundtrack to the film, with several orchestral songs and the Gene Kelly version of "Singin In The Rain" included next to Carlos' electronic versions of Beethoven and his own great work for the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderfully jazzy soundtrack – one of our favorite Jerry Fielding film scores of the 70s, thanks to key solo work from Art Pepper on alto and Jon Faddis on trumpet! The music is far deeper than you might expect for the Clint Eastwood action film setting – funky enough in the best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a spot of tape on the spine, a half unglued bottom seam and a promo sticker in one corner.)
A surprisingly poignant score – especially when you consider that it was written for a film that was known for its graphic violence! Jerry Fielding's at his height here – drawing on his earlier work in jazz, yet weaving together colors and tones that work with really bold imagistic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

$1.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazzy Johnny Keating, we sure love your 60s work – and although most of it was penned in the UK, this album marks one of your fab efforts for the US market!

$4.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
If there was anything weirder than the Billy Jack series of films in the 70s, it was the soundtracks! The records feature overall scoring by Mundell Lowe, with jazzy instrumentals that are trying to have a serious "southwest" sound to them – plus lots of vocal tracks with a similar ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Taj Mahal —
Brothers ... LP Warner, 1977. Used ....
$4.99Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the better records that Taj Mahal cut during in the later 70s – probably because it was a soundtrack, and pushed the groove into some interesting places – with Taj's gruff vocals working over some Caribbean rhythms and modern blues, and more smoothed out moments! The latter ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great mixture of jazzy themes and tense moments – similar to some of Elmer Bernstein's great work in the same style – with driving upbeat numbers sliding into mellower, sadder ones – all fitting perfectly together as a rich tapestry of sound and mood! The players on the set ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A great document of the hippest thing going on TV at the time – the full absorption of the 60s underground into mainstream TV culture! Producers Rowan and Martin bring together a cast that includes Henry Gibson, Joanne Worley, Dave Madden, Ruth Buzzi, and Goldie Hawn – all doing a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
