Jack Ackerman/Teo Macero —
Faces ... LP Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ...
Like the music in most of John Cassavetes films, this LP's a weird mish mash of styles, sounds, and snippets – but it's also got a very emotional edge to it, like all of Cassavetes' films. Jack Ackerman did most of the music, and Teo Macero arranged and conducted all of it. Weird stuff, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound Masterworks pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole and a center split on the bottom seam.)
A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An excellent funky rock soundtrack – penned by the team of Jon Lord and Tony Ashton for this groovy Joe Namath film! (Whatever happened to Joe Namath as a movie star? We loved those movies!) The work's performed in a tight small combo hard-rocking mode – with lots of fuzzed up guitar ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
John Barry —
Chase ... LP Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
A lesser-known moment of genius from John Barry – quite different than his work for the James Bond films of the time! Barry's working here in a mix of more ambitious orchestral themes – dark, brooding, and moody – but also interspersed with some lighter jazzier numbers that are ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the great John Barry – a set of tracks that echoes some of his famous modes from James Bond films, yet also has a unique quality all its own!

A fairly straight orchestral score by John Barry – written for this early 60s film that starred George Segal, Tom Courneay, and Denholm Elliott. The film's a war one, and the themes are pretty typical for that sort of thing – but they do have some nice instrumental touches that push ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Later Bond, but John Barry's still firmly in place – and is more than capable of turning out another wonderful thriller soundtrack!

John Barry/Shirley Bassey —
Goldfinger ... LP United Artists, 1964. Very Good ...
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A twee little score from Lionel Bart – no Oliver, but with some definite London street urchin touches. Peter Sellers sings a number of vocal tunes in a twenties cockney sort of way, and the rest of the album features instrumental numbers by Bart, mostly orchestral ones. Titles include " ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a torn corner. Cover has a cutout hole.)
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sure it's a soundtrack, and sure it's got a number of songs that are just instrumentals from the film – but the record also features some excellent late Beatles tracks that can only be found here – including the killer tracks "Hey Bulldog" (almost a funky nugget), "Only A ...

Elmer Bernstein's theme to The Magnificent Seven is one of the standout soundtrack tunes of the 60s – an instantly recognizable number that you'll groove on right away, and which shows up often in Bernstein's soundtrack to this 1966 sequel to the original film. Tracks include "The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unbelievably fantastic soundtrack – written for the silly sequel to the film Born Free! Howard Blake lays down some amazingly funky instrumental tracks that have a light "jungle" sound – with lots of rolling bass and hard drums in a sweet late 60s funky sort of style. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Less of a full-on soundtrack by Bowie than a collection of work from some of his best albums of the mid and late 70s – pulled together to provide a musical backdrop for the film Christiane F! The versions here are supposedly alternate ones, but we're thinking that's just hype – because ... (Rock, Soundtracks)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s!

Amazing sounds from a rare Swedish film – noteworthy not just for the end result, but for the lineup of people who were part of the process!

Groovy stuff from Chad & Jeremy – a rare soundtrack, but one of their best albums from the 60s!

A soaring, joyous score from Francesco De Masi – not nearly as dark as some of the other spaghetti western soundtracks of the time – and filled with the sort of proud, bold sounds you might expect from a more mainstream American western! There's still plenty creative going on in the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare soundtrack set from Italian drummer Tullio De Piscopo – and one that's done with a sound that rivals some of his clubbier work in years to come!

Lush, dramatic 70s scoring for this later Vittorio De Sica film – scored by Manuel De Sica, and directed by Savina with some warm and romantic touches that have a nice 70s Euro feel, even if they are on the mellower side of the spectrum.

(Cover has a cut corner and a mark from sticker removal.)
A spooky soundtrack from the great Fabio Frizzi – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was one of the true masters of Italian horror!

An excellent soundtrack to this early 70s thriller that starred George C Scott!

One of Jerry Goldsmith's darker scores of the later years – a really spooky bit of music for this eerie sci-fi movie!

A beautiful early soundtrack from Dave Grusin – surprisingly sensitive, and quite different than his later funky work in the 70s!
