One of Lalo Schifrin's greatest soundtracks ever – a gem of a TV score that's been lost for years – and not nearly as famous or well-reissued as Mission Impossible, Bullitt, or Enter The Dragon! The tunes are pure Schifrin all the way through – a mix of jazz, bossa, and funk – served up with a style that's always tight, and which makes for plenty of great groovers all the way through. Instrumentation includes vibes, flutes, guitar, and plenty of great horns – but the rhythms at the bottom are what really hold the whole thing together – romping along with lots of great 70s touches, in a groove that's much hipper than even most of the other cop show soundtracks of the time! Titles include "The Shadow", "Hunt Down", "The Edge Of Night", "Mannix", "Turn Every Stone", and "Fear".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Logan's Run
MGM, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Did filmmaking ever get any better than this? We'd be hard pressed to think so – what with Michael York and Farrah Fawcett-Majors running around in the future, living in a hedonistic world in which you can have anything you want, until you turn 30, and are executed! Great stuff – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Space 1999
RCA, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of Barry Gray's greatest moments – the ultra groovy soundtrack for Space 1999, the short-lived but well-remembered mainstream sci-fi show from the 70s! The title theme has a nice bit of a dancefloor bounce to it – pre-guessing the disco-copy mode that other space soundtracks were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contour, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Nice funky 70s instrumentals, composed by Alan Tew, and performed by the group Bullet – a hip electric combo with a tight sound library feel. The overall style reminds us of Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones cop show work from the early 70s – with some tasty keyboards, plenty of riffing, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Diamonds
Cinephile/Castle (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Heist films always provided some of the best soundtracks of the 70's, and this one (starring Robert Shaw and Richard Roundtree, and issued in the US as Diamond Shaft) is no exception! Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cotton Comes To Harlem
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
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
Veruschka
Right Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ...

Right Tempo (Italy), 1973/1998. New Copy 2LP
Fantastic! Easy Tempo scores again with this beautiful rerelease/repackaging of Gianni Ferrio's lost score for the film Una Farfalla Con Le Ali Insanguinate. The music has lots of spare spooky keyboards, with a slow building sound that's similar to Francis Lai's best soundtrack work, and a warm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Malefices
Cacophonic (UK), 1961. New Copy (reissue)
A rare 60s soundtrack from electronic genius Pierre Henry – and a record that features some of his spookiest sounds of the decade! Side one is full of music used in the film – and much of it is very spare, with lots of low-end electronic textures – especially some of those sighs ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing music from composer Lubos Fiser – delivered with sounds and styles that go way beyond conventional instrumentation, to make the record one of Fiser's most striking releases ever! Organ and keyboards are often produced and played with lots of weird tones – on short tracks that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Man In A Suitcase
Network (UK), 1967. New Copy Gatefold
Great music from this wonderful 60s TV show – all of it as groovy as the program itself! Tunes are by Albert Elms and Ron Grainer, both working at the top of their game – in a cool blend of jazz, mod styles, and swinging orchestrations that's right up there with the kind of sounds you'd ...
