4.90 12

A wonderfully diverse Italian soundtrack from the 60s – penned for a film about action in the Mediterranean, but filled with way more than you'd expect! Some tunes are bright and sunny – with a playful feel rooted in bossa – but others have more of a spy/crime jazz vibe overall – and still others go farther out into more jazz-based modes – including one number billed as "free jazz" with some great horn interplay! There's cool organ lines, sweet vibes, great percussion, and lots more to love – on tracks that include "Bira Shake", "Sangue Sul Fondo Del Mare", "Quica Mambo", "Panfilo", "Bossa Girotondo", "Night Slow", "Mare Delle Baleari", and "Alla Maniera Del Free Jazz". CD features 10 more bonus tracks too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Mondo Di Notte Oggi
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A sexy Euro soundtrack from the 70s – penned for a film that's apparently filled with lots of scantily clad showgirls! The style is totally sweet – often heavy on the keyboards, or on the strings – slightly slinky one minute, then soaring to the skies in a Love Unlimited ... CD

GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy
One of the more obscure Morricone soundtracks from the early 70s – and one of the more unusual ones too! The album's got a real range of tracks – from dramatic vocal numbers that step out as bold themes, to brooding orchestral tracks, to a few cool mellower ones that turn around ... CD

QB VII
ABC/Prometheus, 2013. New Copy 2 CDs
A richly dramatic score by Jerry Goldsmith – originally penned for an early TV mini-series in the 70s, but re-recorded here in a bold new version! The music has a big more grandeur at times than some of Goldsmith's other soundtracks – still a hint of the action themes that we love in ... 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

Electra Glide In Blue
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1973. New Copy
An amazing little soundtrack from James William Guercio – music composed for his only cinematic effort as a director – for a film that features Robert Blake as a Native American cop! The score is heavy on jazzy horns with an undercurrent of funk – very similar to Guercio's best ... CD

United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1978. New Copy
A later entry in the Pink Panther soundtrack series – but one that's still got plenty of great Henry Mancini touches! Themes are plenty playful, and also have some slight electric moments alongside the orchestral scoring – although most of the album's best instrumentation comes out in ... CD

United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1966. New Copy
A great early moment for composer Stephen Sondheim – but a score that's made even groovier here by the film work of Ken Thorne! Thorne brings out a sprightly quality to the music that's maybe missing from the original stage score – and his few instrumental passages are especially great ... CD

Cineploit (Austria), 2013. New Copy CD&DVD
Tremendous work from Sospetto – a current group, but one who are steeped in the best traditions of 70s Italian horror films – especially the work of Goblin and some of their keyboard-heavy contemporaries! The grooves here are wonderful – with a vivid vintage feel that makes ... CD
