Easy Tempo (Italy), 1968. Used
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – and a record that's probably best known for the worldwide hit "Mah Na Mah Na" – later made famous by Sesame Street, The Dave Pell Singers, and many others! The whole thing's wonderful, though – a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hatari
RCA, 1962. Used
Mancini's light lilting groovy score to this flop of a film by Howard Hawks! Again, the score is better remembered than the film – probably because it gave the world the great cut "Baby Elephant Walk", a goofy little number that still gets churned up a lot today. There's lots of ... CD

United Artists, 1970. Sealed
One of Francis Lai's more successful soundtracks, written shortly after his legendary work on Un Homme et Une Femme and Vivre Pour Vivre. The theme of the film is one of Lai's most instantly recognized ones, and it's served up here in a number of different versions with spare haunting keyboards. ... LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists, 1968. Sealed
A great thriller soundtrack – by one of the Italian masters of the 60s! Bacalov's score for the film mixes jazzy numbers with more suspenseful orchestral ones – but the best cuts have a jaunty groovy quality, of the sort you dig these old Italian soundtracks for! Bruno Nicolai ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dead Ringer
Warner, 1964. Very Good
A wonderfully gripping score from Andre Previn – one of his best early dramatic soundtracks! The work's got a style that really befits the dark image on the cover – muted strings that rumble in the background, as other bits of instrumentation – horns, harpsichord, and violin ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the craziest cross-country films ever made – with a host of stars so big we'd have to rent another website just to list them! Ernest Gold does a pretty nice job with the soundtrack – maybe not as all-out goofy as the story, but in a nice way that really helps to anchor the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cotton Comes To Harlem
United Artists, 1972. Very Good-
A funky classic from Galt MacDermot! The record is Galt's score for the blacksploitation film that starred Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St Jacques – and it's a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes that takes off from the sound of his late 60s work. Melba Moore sings on a few cuts – ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Arabesque
RCA, 1966. Sealed
Not as famous as other Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – but a gem through and through, and a record that really shows the maturing talents of the maestro! The album mixes together lush orchestrations with some of the lighter jazz you'd expect from Mancini – the latter a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Papillon
Capitol, 1973. Very Good
A dramatic score by Jerry Goldsmith – written for the film Papillon, a dark prison film that starred Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffmann. The manner of the work is similar to other Goldsmith scores of this nature – with many tense horn and string passages that underlie the mood of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Performance – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Warner, 1970. Good
Mostly instrumental music from Jack Nitzsche – but with 2 vocal songs – "Memo From Turner" by Mick Jagger, and "Gone Dead Train" by Randy Newman. LP, Vinyl record album

20th Century, 1966. Very Good+
Groovy stuff! The album features Johnny Dankworth's fab score for Modesty Blaise – the sexy slinky British queen of international adventure, played by Monica Vitti in the 1966 film. The soundtrack's got some great jazzy numbers, a few variations on the theme, and some weird groovy tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA, 1963. Near Mint-
Sure, you've heard it a million times – but it's still a fantastic soundtrack! Henry Mancini's whimsical scoring is a perfect touch for this classic Peter Sellers film – and it's made even better by the LA group of musicians who play the music – including Plas Johnson on tenor, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. Used
One of the more laidback western soundtracks we've ever heard – and we mean that in a great way! Franco Micalizzi seems to work here in a way that's more focused on the overall music than the genre of the film – and turns in some really beautiful slow-stepping numbers – some with ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MGM/EMI, 1963. Used
One of John Barry's earliest scores for Bond – when his style was nice and raw, and when the Bond theme couldn't be heard enough throughout the course of the movie! Matt Munro sings the lyrics to the forgotten title hit – and other tracks include "James Bond Theme", "Tani ... CD

Varese, 1967. Used
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!) – but which still have all of the charm of his ... CD

Universal (France), 1966. Used 2CD
One of our favorite soundtracks ever – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand ... CD

RCA, 1962. Very Good+
Henry Mancini's second album of stuff for the Peter Gunn TV show, and arguably better than the first one! The album's straight-ahead crime jazz – performed by a great set of players that includes Plas Johnson, Shelly Manne, Ted Nash, Paul Horn, and other west coasters. Tracks include "M ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1971. Near Mint-
One of Michel Legrand's greatest moments of the late 60s – a sweetly romantic score that lasted a lot longer than the film it was written to accompany! The soundtrack features the haunting "Summer Of 42 Theme", also known as "The Summer Knows" – a drifting sad ... LP, Vinyl record album

Borsalino
Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good+
Claude Bolling contributed the jazz-tinged score to this French film that starred Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo as gangsters in the roaring 20s. The overall sound is dominated by Bolling's boogie woogie sound – and titles include "Les Annees Follies", "Arts Deco", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack The Ripper
RCA, 1960. Very Good+
Over the years, how many films have been made about this guy anyway? We've never seen the movie, but the record's a gem – some very edgy scoring by Pete Rugolo, the ex-Kenton arranger who went on to do some great crime jazz work for a number of labels. This work isn't exactly in that style, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Il Mondo Dei Romani
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy
A very cool soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – done during a period of great electronic exploration! The record is credited to "Piero Umiliani & I Suoi Oscillatori" – an instrument you can definitely hear at work here – as Piero uses lots of cool keyboard ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
L'Uomo Di Rame
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
An overlooked treasure from the legendary Franco De Gemini – surprisingly great overall, despite the nature of the project! The tunes are mostly of a spiritual nature – designed to be played by a small group in an outdoors setting – but they've hardly got any churchy feel at all ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Galileo (plus bonus tracks)
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A really compelling early soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that's done for an historical film, but which really points the way towards horror scores to come! The film depicts the struggles that Galileo had with the Catholic church – and really creates this sort of earthy, organic ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vita Segreta Di Una Diciottenne
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A soundtrack that's every bit as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – composed by Gianni Marchetti, conducted by Stelvio Cipriani, and served up with all the groovy touches you'd expect from either maestro! The scoring mixes light strings with warmer keyboards, guitar, and bits of woodwinds ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
FBI Operazione Vipera Gialla
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
One of the grooviest operations ever undertaken by the FBI – thanks to a fab 60s soundtrack from Franceso De Masi! De Masi uses plenty of jazz – some of the crime modes of the US scene of the late 50s, but also a good dose of the Italian styles of a few years later – as you'd ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat/Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy

Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs
Morricone fans – this one's got it all! The music is completely wonderful throughout, and a great mix of everything that makes Ennio Morricone so tremendous – a bit of bossa here, some funky bits there, and even some spookier slow passages with a nice atonal feel! The main theme of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Grazie – Nonna
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
Swirling strings and stepping keyboards from Enrico Simonetti – an Italian soundtrack composer who also also has a great ear for a sexy groove! Mellower melodies are mixed with Barry White-styled soulful strings – in a blend that creates some excellent funky instrumentals at a few key ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Viva La Liberta
Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy
A contemporary film, but one that's scored with all the charms of Italian soundtracks from the 70s – particularly the sense of space and timing that graced some of the best work of that period! Marco Betta's score is nice and understated – gentle strings, isolated instruments, and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1979/1990. New Copy
A pair of weird soundtracks from Italian soundtrack heavy Fabio Fizzi – the stylistically sprawling music for Zombi 2 (released in America as Zombie) and some later compositions for Un Gatto Nel Cervello! The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roma Violenta
Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lesbo (limited edition)
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
Totally wonderful spy soundtrack work from Piero Umiliani – done in his best groovy style of the 60s, with a brilliant mix of jazz and mod elements throughout! Umiliani's extrapolating from the more famous spy sounds of Bond and Barry, and takes things very strongly into his own territory ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists, 1967. Sealed
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morricone Uncovered
Perseverance, 2012. Used
Classic songs from Ennio Morricone – reworked in a lush orchestral format – and accompanied by great vocals from Romina Arena! Romina's a younger singer, but has the range that made Morricone's music with Edda Dell'Orso so wonderful back in the day – and unlike other re-recordings ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Alla Conquista Dell'Arkansas
Beat (Italy), 1965. Used
A soaring, joyous score from Francesco De Masi – not nearly as dark as some of the other spaghetti western soundtracks of the time – and filled with the sort of proud, bold sounds you might expect from a more mainstream American western! There's still plenty creative going on in the ... CD

Cinedelic (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A great entry in the Kriminal series of films – one that features some wonderfully groovy work from Piero Umiliani!

Una Bella Grinta
CAM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing set of modern jazz – penned by Italian film composer Piero Umiliani, but also played by a very hip group headed by a young Gato Barbieri!

Il Profeta/La Matriarca
GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. New Copy
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best ... CD
