The first James Bond soundtrack – pre-John Barry, but already showing Bond music as a genre unto itself! Monty Norman handles the music – and brings together some cool Caribbean sounds with familiar jazz riffs – a blend that showcases the Jamaican setting of the main narrative, ...

An obscure set of Latin jazz tracks – recorded as a one-off for United Artists under the name "The Peanut Vendors", but comprised of a very hip batch of players that includes Luis Barreiro on bass, Charli Palmieri on piano, Johnny Pacheco on flute, Jimmy Santiago on timbales, Jose ...

A pretty compelling album for Sidney – a selection of poems written by African Americans – stretching back across a variety of styles, and read to musical accompaniment and strange production effects! Sidney's joined by Doris Belack, who provides a female voice on a few numbers – ... (Comedy/Spoken) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A gently jazzy score by Andre Previn – written for this Robert Wise film that starred an aging Robert Mitchum and a young Shirley MacLaine! The feel here is often sad, and a bit dreamy – scored with that "serious" early 60s style that showed up in New York TV dramas a fair ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Heavy Bay Area sounds here – with cuts that include "Superbyrd" and "Your Old Lady" by Steve Miller Band, "Stranger In My Own Home Town" and "Revolution" by Mother Earth, and "Codine" and "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" by Quicksilver ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Mostly dramatic material, written by Riddle to accompany this mid 60s film based on the John O'Hara novel of the same name. Ferrante & Teicher perform the main theme – which is jaunty enough – but the other tracks are pretty dark and orchestral, with a fairly gloomy feel overall. ...

Tito gets in on the Charanga craze of the early 60s – and like everything he does, the album's handled strongly, although perhaps not at the top level of its field.

Tito Rodriguez returns to the Palladium – in a smoking set that's got all the great jazzy touches of his first volume at the famous club, but a bit more of a charanga groove overall! The core combo elements that make Tito great are firmly in place – that strong sense of rhythm and ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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 ...

(Cover has a cut corner, some ringwear, and edge wear.)
A soundtrack by Charles Strouse that mixes both vocal and instrumental modes of the 20s – but always with an undercurrent of 60s camp! The film's a bit more unusual than you might guess, and the burlesque setting really comes through in some of the tunes – which have a swinging 60s ... (Soundtracks) 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 ...

A full-blown score from Dimitri Tiomkin – one that rivals his famous work in earlier films, with a complex blend of orchestrations that really moves over the top right from the start – grabbing the listener with all the power of one of Burt Lancaster's spoken bits in the film!

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.

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.

(Cover has ring & edge wear, with unglued top and bottom seams.)
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!

One of the all-time great ones from Bobby Womack – and a set that definitely helped push the singer into the mainstream of soul in the 70s!
