LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 12

A totally excellent soundtrack! This is one of the maddest we've heard from the 70s – with a baroque mix of wah wah funk and sophisticated orchestrations, very much in the mode of work by David Axelrod or some of the backings heard on Serge Gainsbourg's best records. No surprise it's handled by Alain Gouraguer, a groovy Frenchman with a style that's a mix of the late 60s baroquery of Michel Columbier, and some of the smooth sexiness of the best Italian composers of his age. Great electric piano, wah wah guitar, and soaring strings – with a sound that's as odd as the cover! Titles include "Le Bracelet", "Deshominisation", "Mort De Draag", "La Femme", "Mira Et Ten", and "Ten Et Medor".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

20th Century/Universal, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Holy Soundtracks! Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time!

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!

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.

Beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini.

Back Beat, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
An early high point in the career of OV Wright – the kind of "cut above" work that really got him noticed right away – a subtle blend of soul, blues, and more sophisticated styles – a bit like Bobby Blue Bland at his best, but sung in a much more sweetly soulful tone! ... LP, Vinyl record album

If this is the New Lee Dorsey – we forgot all about the old one!
