An extremely groovy soundtrack from Carlo Rustichelli – one that bridges two generations of Italian comedy scores! At one level, there's a bouncing melodic feel to the score – done in a very Nino Rota-esque way, with plenty of jazzy touches on electric guitar, and some extremely ...

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 ...

A groovy batch of rock and roll tracks for this hip mod sex romp from the late 60s! Titles include "Just Like Me", "Picture Of Her", "Waltz For Caroline", "Possession", "Looking Back", "Taking Out Time", and "Virginals Dream" by ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Pretty great stuff, and a rare Brian Wilson side project from the early 70s! (Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, some ringwear, and edge wear.)
One of Steve & Eydie's greatest albums – a set of tunes from films of the 50s and early 60s, set to swinging arrangements by Don Costa! The album features a great original tune – "Two On The Aisle" – one of those magical tunes that was penned for the album, and lost ... (Vocalists) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare set of Billy Strayhorn tracks recorded in Paris by Alan Douglas. The tracks are incredibly haunting, and mostly feature Strayhorn's solo piano with spare backing by Parisian bassist Michel Goudret. There are a a few short moments on the record that add backing voices or strings – but ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Mid 70's album of funky soul tracks cut by ex-Gator Willie Tee, with a number of other members of the Gators, for United Artists. Don't go thinking that it's raw New Orleans soul, though, because the sound is a lot more polished, with more of a 70's modern groove to it. Willie's still got some ...

(US stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and a bit of staining along the top seam.)
One of the best-ever euro soundtracks on United Artists! Lots of great Italian sixties scoring by Armando Trovajoli, with lots of jazzy crime music (this is a heist movie, apparently), and really cool Swingle Singers-sounding vocals by a group called I.Cantori Moderni. The sound is great, very ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Unity ... LP United Artists, 1980. Very Good+ ...
Obscure modern soul album on United Artists, with a strong sound that's heading towards an 80s groove, but which also has elements of Luther's work during the late 70s. The group features two male and one female singer – and the overally vocal approach is solos on the verses, and harmony on ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare early cooker from Phil Upchurch – hardly the "hit dances" set you might guess from the title, and a stripped-down session that features plenty of organ next to Phil's guitar! There's a mode here that's very much like the Tru-Sound sessions on Prestige – clearly ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of their great early ones – when the band's trademark Chicano funk sound was still hard and raw! Includes the classic "Slipping Into Darkness", with some great jazzy changes that still hold up extremely well. We put this on the other night and trippe dout a bit on how dope ...

An excellent album of funky tracks from War – perhaps a bit overlooked next to their classic albums with soul hits, but a really sophisticated batch of tracks that shows the band growing and growing even more over the years! The record's got a killer style that mixes jazz funk with a freer ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

War ... LP United Artists, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ...
War's first LP without Eric Burdon – and although not the mega-hit that following LPs would be, still a pretty great blend of styles that firmly shows the group's unique vision. War are hitting hard with that soulful LA funk sound – a blend of funky jazz, Latin, and other elements ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Live recordings of some classic War songs such as "The Cisco Kid', "Ballero", "Lonely Feeling" and "Son Oh Son." Most of the tracks are seven minutes long and side four is a twenty minute version of "Get Down". (Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
One of the biggest albums in War's career! The record includes the classic cut "Low Rider" – a hard-rolling Chicano funk number that's probably been their biggest legacy to day – plus the mellow reggae-tinged title cut, a huge AM radio hit back in the day. Other tracks ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A mix of dramatic moments and slight exotic themes from Franz Waxman – penned for an early 60s film that starred Yul Brynner as Taras Bulba and Tony Curtis as his son! Waxman's music has a gloriously full sort of sound – every bit the best Hollywood mode for an action epic like this ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! ...

It's a little-known fact that Memphis had a huge influence on the sound of late 50s/early 60s soul jazz – probably because most of the city's best players had to leave and go either to Chicago or New York to make their name. This set's a great reminder of that fact, as it brings together an ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the most striking albums ever recorded by Denny Zeitlin – the dark soundtrack to this late 70s remake of the horror classic Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. There's a very minimal use of electronics on the record, combined with some wonderful orchestrations from Zeitlin – very ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
