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

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

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
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'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
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!

Smooth funky big band work from Bill Conti – penned for a film written by and starring Burt Young as the trumpet-playing Uncle Joe in the title!

A wonderfully jazzy soundtrack – one of our favorite Jerry Fielding film scores of the 70s, thanks to key solo work from Art Pepper on alto and Jon Faddis on trumpet! The music is far deeper than you might expect for the Clint Eastwood action film setting – funky enough in the best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

An excellent soundtrack to this early 70s thriller that starred George C Scott! Jerry Goldsmith has come up with some strong action themes that are very much in a Lalo Schifrin mode – mixing guitar, electric harpsichord, and strings with a harder-edged groove so that there's a lot of space ... 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 beautiful early soundtrack from Dave Grusin – surprisingly sensitive, and quite different than his later funky work in the 70s! The score is a cool mix of strings and keyboard parts – sometimes played on harpsichord by Grusin, an instrument that we don't always hear him use, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Johnny Harris always turns in great soundtrack work, and this score is no exception – definitely a cut above the usual mountain man film score of the 70s! Harris has a way of bringing in some sweeter moments to the music – mixing them with the dramatic undercurrents, and creating a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A unique western score by Maurice Jarre, written for this late 60s Pancho Villa thriller that starred Robert Mitchum, Charles Bronson, and Yul Brynner – who's clearly wearing hair for the film!

Show Boat ... LP Columbia, Late 40s. Sealed ...
UK maestro Geoff Love's recasting of famous themes from military films – including some classics from the 50s and 60s, given a slightly lighter reading here as a great device that still lets you enjoy the famous themes – yet without all the heavy drama of the original soundtrack! ...

An excellent soundtrack to one of the wildest Woody Allen movies ever made – a weird little film that has Woody dubbing fake English dialogue over a Japanese action picture! The music by Lovin Spoonful is equally great – a bit groovier than some of their other albums of the time – ... (Rock, Soundtracks)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!

An extremely unique Mancini soundtrack – scored for this European film that starred Marcello Mastroianni and Ingrid Bergman – with a sound that's almost in a similar mood to Morricone from the same time. Most of the tracks are fairly dark and turgid – with simple themes running ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing 60s soundtrack – one that's infinitely better than the film for which it was written!

This is the small combo recording of tracks from the legendary jazz score to I Want To Live!

A Smokey Robinson soundtrack to a film that's scarcely remembered – but Smokey's songs are great, his singing passionate and soulful, and the songs work well in a number of soul modes!
