Galt MacDermot — Cotton Comes To Harlem ... LP 19.99

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 – and others have lyrics sung by George Tipton, Sakinah, Leta Galloway, and Denise Dillpena, mostly in a early 70s pop soul sort of mode. The instrumentals are actually the best bits, though – with those odd little rhythms that Galt could hit when he really wanted to! Titles include "Man In Distress", "Harlem Medley", "Black Enough", "Stockyard", "Deke", "Ed & Digger", "Coffin Ed & Gravedigger", and "Harlem By Day".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Get Back (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A killer 60s soundtrack! The score was written for a strange biker film that starred Marianne Faithfull and Alain Delon – and it's filled with lots of driving grooves, wailing organ lines, and jangly guitar parts.

Fascination (10 inch vinyl)
Finders Keepers (UK), 1979. New Copy
A totally cool score from Philippe D'Aram – one that's heavy on electronics, amidst the usual horror movie moods – which gives the music a cold, stark feel that's really amazing – incredibly spooky at points, and nice and spacey at others! D'Aram doesn't just use the usual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Room 237 (180 gram orange & red vinyl pressing)
Death Waltz (UK), 2012. New Copy LP & CD
Contemporary work, but sounds that are greatly inspired by the best Italian soundtracks of the 70s and 80s – particularly those keyboard-heavy horror scores that have been so influential over the years!
