One of Bacharach's strangest records! The soundtrack was written for the huge flop musical Lost Horizon – and it features all vocal tracks, sung by the likes of Shawn Phillips, Sally Kellerman, and Diana Lee. The overall feel is very sing-songy, with kind of a children's them sort of sound ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The classic Burt Bacharach score for What's New Pussycat – a mid 60s sex-farce starring Peter Sellers and Peter O'Toole! The album features some amazing vocal tracks that have become enduring classics – like "What's New Pussycat?" sung by Tom Jones, "Here I Am" sung ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Listen, forget every cliche you've ever heard about this film, because this soundtrack is amazing! Gato Barbieri knocked himself out for this one, and came up with an insanely wonderful batch of "modern jazz tango" tracks that mix out soloing, pounding bandoneon rhythms, and lush ... 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
(Black label 60s pressing. Cover has some wear and names in pen on back.)
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
Elmer Bernstein handled the score for this steamy Hal Wallis romance film from the early 60s, based on a play by Tennessee Williams. The whole thing's fairly orchestral, with occasional breakaway instrumental touches designed to convey a slight feeling of "rural" or "southern" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing, on Entracte, with a slight variation in cover image.)
Pretty righteous stuff – with some vocals from Alex Bradford and other gospel singers – on cuts that nicely skirt the secular and spiritual! Produced by Jerry Ragovoy, with titles that include "Love Power", "I Gotta Keep Movin", "Good Vibrations", "Fig ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Khartoum ... LP United Artists, Early 60s. Sealed ...
A heavily orchestral score for this Cinerama desert flick that starred Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier – filled with dramatic themes that are clearly in the Lawrence Of Arabia mode! Proud British horns come into play with other instrumentation that echoes the Mid East setting of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The soundtrack to the 60s version of Stagecoach – the one with the outrageously beautiful Ann Margaret, Bing Crosby, Red Buttons, Slim Pickens and Alex Cord – with a lavish, though appropriately dust-strewn Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack! This '66 remake may not rival John Ford's landmark ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty groovy soundtrack – one that goes way past the hit! Sure, this one's always been famous for the wonderful track "To Sir With Love" – done here in 3 versions by the young and lovely Lulu, who also starred in the film. But the record's also got some great ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A subtle score by Hopkins – not as all-out jazzy as some of his other work from the 60s, but with some nice moments that mix moody orchestrations with straighter jazz-based numbers. The film's a dark little one that starred Warren Beatty, Jean Seberg, and Peter Fonda – and Hopkins ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Nice little soundtrack for this obscure thriller starring Sean Connery. Michael Kamen (ex-New York Rock & Roll Ensemble) lays down some groovy tracks with a good 70's crime/thriller feel. Some tracks are more orchestral, but there's some nice moments with a good bass-y feel. Titles include ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A very strange little record – composed for a very strange film directed by Allen "Candid Camera" Funt – in which people are surprised by a nude woman, and have to react accordingly. There's a lot of tunes on here that have an almost Harper's Bizarre feel – that kind of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An obscure late 60s rock opera – but a pretty great one too, and a set with some rougher, more soulful moments than Hair, Oh Calcutta, or any of its contemporaries! The instrumentation here is really great – almost in a Melvin Van Peebles mode at times, with basslines that step around ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Henry Mancini —
Charade ... LP RCA, 1963. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded! The main "Charade" theme is a total gem – performed here in both a guitar-h ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing. Cover has a small split on the top seam & a sticker spot.)
A classic! This is the record that made Mancini's career, and forever transformed the face of crime and jazz. The record's a stunning batch of instrumentals, played by a crack group of west coast players who also performed regularly in the TV show. Titles include the classic "Peter ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The original film soundtrack to the original version of The Producers – the classic that featured Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder in the main roles, and Dick Shawn as the show's Hitler! The music is all pretty darn groovy – and often has some cool 60s mod touches, especially on a few of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Jack Nitzsche, Willy De Ville, Mutiny, & Others —
Cruising ... LP Columbia/Lorimar, 1980. Very Good ...
Strange mix of tracks for this film that has Al Pacino going undercover in New York's gay scene of the 70s. Most of the tracks are discrete songs, not instrumentals, and produced by Nitzsche. Jerome Bailey and Mutiny turn in one funk number called "Lump", and other tracks include "L ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Clifton Parker's score for Damn The Defiant lives up to every expectation you might have from the title – with orchestrations that are bold, and often quite triumphant – underscoring the tension and drama of the shipboard narrative that starred Alec Guinness, Dirk Bogarde, and Anthony ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty nice Andre Previn soundtrack for this late Billy Wilder film that starred Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau – plus the young Judi West, who sings a version of "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" on the album. The rest of the tracks are split pretty evenly between light jazzy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Most of this soundtrack is orchestral and classical, but the record includes a fantastic funky tune by Previn – the great "Executive Party", played during a tripped-out party scene in the film, and featuring a mix of funky bass, wah wah guitar, and some weird spooky moogy bits that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Audrey Hepburn's back in Paris again – fooling around with another older man! This time it's William Holden, but fortunately Nelson Riddle's along for the ride to keep the music nice and groovy. Most of the stuff on here's kind of Frenchy instrumental, with the cliched kind of sound you'd ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and some wear.)
Not Lalo's greatest soundtrack of the 70s, but with a few nice moments! The music was written for a strange action film that starred George Segal, Henry Fonda, and Richard Widmark, set in an amusement park – and, not surprisingly, about half the tunes have a carnival or circus type theme to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Tedd Smith/Jerry Whitman/Randy Stonehill —
Time To Run ... LP World Wide, Early 70s. Very Good+ ...
One of those mixed-bag soundtracks that often showed up for lesser films of the hippie generation – a set that features some vocal rock tunes done especially for the movie, plus some much better instrumental tunes that really stand out! The only real standout track here is the title ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Leith Stevens/Louis Armstrong & Danny Kaye —
Five Pennies ... LP Dot, Mid 50s. Very Good ...
It would be easy to hate this one – the soundtrack to the story of trumpeter Red Nichols and his Five Pennies group – but it's got some nice moments! The Danny Kaye tunes are silly, as you'd expect – and they include the slightly famous "Music Goes Round & Round", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great soundtrack by Pat Williams – best known to Dusty Groove customers for his groovy instrumental albums on Verve! The tracks have loads of easy, bossa, and sixties grooves running throughout – with nice jazzy bits, and tracks that include "Villa Sweet Villa", "How ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Label has a library sticker. Cover has wide clear tape on the seams and some discoloration along the opening.)
Includes clean and instrumental mixes of tracks from the soundtrack, by Wu-Tang Clan, Kool G Rap, Talib Kweli, Three 5 Mafia, Devin The Dude, Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, and others. LP, Vinyl record album
Not the funkiest Sesame Street record you'll come across, but still pretty darn hip, and one that makes us wonder why children's TV is so darn lame these days. Original versions of numbers that really take us back are interspersed with dialogue lifted from the show, great for sampling, scratching ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
