4.80 12

Really early sounds from the great John Barry – a huge amount of tracks recorded with his combo for the Drumbeat TV show in the UK! The program had a strong focus on the emerging rock and roll sounds of the late 50s – and the John Barry Seven were a perfect group to provide musical accompaniment – professional enough to handle the gig in just the right way, but youthful enough to come up with plenty of sharp-edged sounds! The instrumentation's often heavy on guitar, but features some trumpet lines from Barry too – and although the set features some instrumentals by the group, there's also a lot of vocal numbers – with singers who include Derry Hart, Adam Faith, Bob Miller, Sylvia Sands, Roy Young, Vince Eager, and others. 40 tracks in all – including "Mad Mab", "Bees Knees", "Don't Leave Me", "Slippin & Slidin", "Rockin Sandy", "Get Happy", "Italian Style", "Beatnik", "Catwalk", "I Go Ape", "Shame On You Miss Johnson", and "Buzzin".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A killer croc has never sounded so spooky – thanks to great soundtrack work from Riz Ortolani! Ortolani's a name that you probably know best from famous global film success of the 60s – but by the time of this late 80s album, he's really matured nicely – and has a way with dark ... CD

La Bestia Nello Spazio
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A very cool sci fi soundtrack from Marcello Giombini – as sexy as the image on the cover might imply, but also pretty darn electric and spacey as well! The album echoes some of Giombini's earlier electronic sound library material – and is often spare, with heavy use of keyboards – ... CD
Cicciolina Amore Mio
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy
Sweet sexy grooves from Gianni Marchetti – a disco-era soundtrack from the end of the 70s, but one that's also got some of the lighter, slinkier touches of Italian erotic films from a few years before! The main theme – "I Was Made For Dancing" – is an English-language ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A crazy exploitation genre fusion in the Emanuelle series – in which the globe trotting erotic adventurer winds up in situations with the world's last Amazonian cannibals – an anything goes entry in 70s sleazy cinema scored with some of the funkiest music we've ever heard from Italian ... CD
1000 Dollari Sul Nero
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
Loads of great guitar in this classic 60s western – sometimes twangy, sometimes driving, and sometimes mixed nicely with trumpet – all for a sound that really makes the score one of the best from the spaghetti western generation! There's a bold, fresh approach to the whole thing – ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1978. New Copy
A wild one from Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the disco promise of the title, but which still has some of the cool playful touches of Umiliani's work in movies too! The record may well be the funkiest that Piero ever cut – and was done ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1962. New Copy
Lots of jazziness here – including tight piano, snapping snare, and moody vibes – all served up in one of the best early soundtracks we've heard from Piero Piccioni! The core of the record features the original EP release of the film score – some of the most tight, tuneful ... CD
United Artists/Charly (UK), 1972. New Copy 2CD
A very cool set! This one comes in a hardcover book-like package – and not only includes the main record, but two full other records as well! Across 110th Street is one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, " ... CD
Return Of The Silkie
Drag City, 1983. New Copy
Pretty harp playing and lovely folk vocals from Carol Kleyn – serving her warm, naturally evocative songcraft – which is accented by the sounds of lightly crashing waves, sea lion and harbor seal chattering! It's not as out-there as that probably sounds, to be honest. Carol's voice as ... CD
