One of the rarest albums ever from soundtrack maestro Peter Thomas – and one of the funkiest, too! The set's not a film score – like most of Thomas' other material – but a German sound library set, originally issued only in very small quantities – and featuring some of Peter's wildest music of the 70s! All the best sci-fi funk touches from before are firmly in place – those sounds you love from his Raumpatroulle and Chariots Of The Gods soundtracks – and instrumentation mixes up a nice blend of acoustic and electric sources, with some wicked studio production tricks too. There's a bit of wordless vocals at times – kind of a cool spacey chorus – but most sounds are instrumental, and titles include "Katachi", "Flash Point", "Rockin Computer", "Power Boost", "Under Control", and "Hedono". CD also features bonus tracks too – "Cat Beat", "Crash", "Motorama", and "Umpta Lady".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

All Score Media (Germany), 1968/1969. New Copy
Sensual soundtracks from German maestro Peter Thomas – very groovy music recorded for two sex-ed films of the late 60s! The sounds here are every bit as wonderful as those we've come to love in Thomas crime and sci-fi scoring – lots of cool 60s instrumentation on keyboards, funky drums ... CD
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the all-time great soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – and one of his few film scores of the 70s to circulate at an international level too! Yet the fame of the record is very well-deserved, because the music is completely sublime – a mixture of light orchestrations and tinkling ... CD
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
Il Marchio Di Kriminal
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A great entry in the Kriminal series of films – one that features some wonderfully groovy work from Piero Umiliani! The music here is Umiliani at his most playful – rooted in jazz, but with warmer touches from bossa and other mod 60s Italian styles too – sometimes set to wordless ... CD
La Lunga Spiaggia Fredda
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Early 70s soundtrack grooves from Stevio Cipriani – his work for 1971's La Lunga Spiaggia Fredda – with a sweet range of styles! It's fairly laidback for the most part, with a slow-building atmosphere – with bossa-inspired lounge grooves, spare acoustic guitar, groovy electic ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A sweet electric groover from Stelvio Cipriani – full of keyboards and piano, mixed with some mighty delightful rhythms! The main theme is a catchy groover with a bit of a disco undercurrent, but the rest of the soundtrack really spaces things out nicely – using some slower passages, ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1973/1975. New Copy
A masterpiece of moody keyboards – two killer 70s scores from the great Dave Grusin! First up is The Friends of Eddie Coyle – wonderful music for a superb late Robert Mitchum film – never available on record, at least that we know of – and filled with the kind of groovy, ... CD
Colgems/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy 2 CDs
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 best ... CD
I Magliari
Beat (Italy), 1959. New Copy
An excellent jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – captured at a great early point in his film career, when he was still mixing in lots of elements from his work in jazz as well! The style here echoes some of the French jazz soundtracks of the new wave – and the tunes often sport ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A cool change from the usual from Ennio Morricone – a later soundtrack, and one that features some surprisingly jazzy tracks! Part of the set features the more standard Morricone orchestrations you might expect – some really great tracks that have offbeat larger arrangements that are ... CD
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
