5.00 25

A legendary TV soundtrack – music for a show that only ran for 8 episodes, but which has lived on for decades past the original program! The Hanged Man features some of the funkiest grooves to ever come from the Themes International sound library label – cuts scored by Alan Tew, and played by the label's hip group of session musicians – including Alan Hawkshaw on keyboards and Alan Parker on guitar! Although originally billed to a group named Bullet, the recordings are actually straight sound library sessions – but funky enough to match the best cop/crime work of the time – similar to DeWolfe music used in The Sweeney! There's an armful of samples on here, and even more great funky instrumentals – and the set not only features the cuts issued as The Hanged Man soundtrack, but also the albums Drama Suite Vol 1 & 2 – the original sound library records that created the music. The CD features a whopping 47 tracks in all – including lots of short cuts never on any other Hanged Man releases – with titles that include "The Rub Contract Man", "Helicop", "Money Runner", "The Detectives", "Night Watch", "The Fence", "Total Silence", "Eyes", "Master Plan", "Big One Prelude", "Snout", "Car Patrol", and "The Heister".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy CD & Book
A killer collection of sound library funk from the UK – a scene that served up some of the rarest grooves of the 70s! The music is every bit as funky as American work from the early 70s – like records from CTI, or blacksploitation soundtracks – but most of it was never issued on ... CD

Triton
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Unusual music from Hiromasa Suzuki – an artist we mostly know as a jazz musician, but who emerges here at the head of a great set of soundtrack-styled numbers! The music appears to be done for television in the late 70s – possibly as a sound library recording, we're not sure – ... CD

Dicky Oliver
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A 60s album recorded in Italy – but with a groove that's midway between Memphis and the mod sounds of the London scene – thanks to a heavy dose of Hammond and horns! The tunes are all instrumental, and leap right into the fray with these romping rhythms that often snap along in the ... CD

Retrospective
Morphine (Netherlands), 1980s. New Copy 2CD
Cool 80s electronic work from Charles Cohen – an overlooked American artist from the mid-Atlantic scene, but one whose music rivals some of the early greats from the previous analogue years! At a time when so many others were either overly bombastic, or way too laid back, Cohen had a way of ... CD

Omni (Australia), 1972. New Copy
Sweet and sexy sounds from William Sheller – a rare French set from the early 70s – and a record we'd rank right up there with the best work by Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Sheller's got a similar groove here – a way of compressing the instrumentation right down to ... CD

GDM/Quartet (Spain), 1969/1970. New Copy
Two very beautiful soundtracks from Ennio Morricone – back to back in one massively overstuffed package! La Monaca Di Monza is a masterpiece in slow strings and moody sounds – a work that's almost as tense as some of Morricone's horror scores, but which also has this flowing, ... CD

Bear Family (Germany), 1956/1958. New Copy
2 rare 50s soundtracks by German composer Martin Bottcher – both of them for juvenile delinquent films starring a young Horst Buchholz! The approach here is strongly in the 50s crime jazz mode – and the work sparkles with the best of the American generation of the time, including Henry ... CD

Bear Family (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A very cool compilation of vocal tunes from western films – all themes written by Ennio Morricone, and sung by a range of singers that really makes for some fantastic work! The recordings of the set are mostly from the very late 60s and very early 70s – and although the themes are ... CD

Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy
Beautiful vocal tunes from classic Ennio Morricone soundtracks! Although much of the Morricone work we stock is instrumental, and although some of these scores do have a moody wordless vocal approach, a number of other films that Il Maestro worked on did have strong lead vocal themes – sung ...
