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
GDM (Italy), 1964. New Copy
A groovy early score from Armando Trovajoli – and one that's definitely got a number of tracks in the mod side of his spectrum! The main theme and a few other numbers use plenty of guitar – romping in a style that echoes some London modes of the mid 60s, but with a definite Trovajoli ... CD
CAM/GDM (Italy), 1978/1980. New Copy
Ennio Morricone soundtracks for the first two La Cage Aux Follies films – back to back on a single CD! The first La Cage Aux Follies soundtrack was a huge international hit for Morricone – quite a surprise, given the warmth and whimsy in the music – which is a real change from ... CD
Slalom
GDM (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A very groovy early soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done with a fantastic sound that's made even more wonderful by vocal work from I Cantori Moderni – a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers! The group has sung more famously on soundtracks by ... CD
Leonor
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A surprisingly warm soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially considering it was penned for a creepy film about medieval vampirism! The music has a bit of a period feel – mostly through some use of light woodwind or lute-like stringed instrumentation at points – but the ... CD
Eva
Bella Casa (UK), 1962. New Copy
A fantastic lost soundtrack from Michel Legrand! The score is a lightly jazzy one, done for a film starring Jeanne Moreau and directed by Joseph Losey – and the music's a perfect blend of Legrand's earlier straighter jazz work, with some of his later talent for groovy orchestrations. The ... 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
10
Warner/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy
Back in the day, we remember digging the movie 10 for the fact of Bo Derek's bareness – but these days, we're more likely to love it for this sweet little soundtrack from Henry Mancini! The score's a bit different than the sound of Hank in years past – and the high points are some ... CD
