A great mix of the groovy and the romantic – and one of the best soundtracks ever from mad French arranger Michel Colombier! The album kicks off with Colombier's famous "Batucada Erotica" – a darkly jagged number that brings together percussion and voices into a really striking groove, one that's made the track a favorite for years in the jazz dance crowd. Other tracks move into a style that's either mellower or more orchestral – the mellower cuts dipping along with a style that's half French (ala Francis Lai's 70s work), and half like some of the best mellow Italian soundtrack work of the same period. A few tunes have weird chorus vocals – almost in a Carmina Burana mode – and titles include "Les 11,000 Verges", "Wanda E Nadege", "Batucada Erotica", "Natacha", "Port Arthur", and "Strip Tease Pour Un Japonais".

Gloria ... LP EMI (France), 1977. Near Mint- ...
A moody score by Ernest Gold – written to accompany a Nazi film directed by Sam Peckinpah, and done with some great orchestral flourishes! The music has that tenseness you usually get from war films of this era – almost as if the soundtrack was there to accompany more of the pre-action moments than the drama itself – a job for which Gold's careful scoring is very well suited. The tracks include "Mikael", "Steiner's Report", "Captin Stransky","The Terrace", "Eva", "I Hate All Officers", and "Memories & Hallucinations", which is a bit trippy. Nice gatefold cover – with lots of images from the film. LP, Vinyl record album

13 Jours En France ... LP Saravah (France), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Genius work from French composer Francis Lai – one of his greatest soundtracks ever, and done during the same period as Live For Life and A Man & A Woman! The feel here is very similar to the work of those films – and was also done for a project directed by Claude Lelouch – and as on A Man & A Woman, both Pierre Barouh and Nicole Croisille sing vocals on the session, bringing a really groovy vocal touch to the set! The tunes range from broadly sweeping and soaring numbers, to others that have a bouncy French pop feel – and Lai really comes through with some beautiful instrumentation for the set, especially on a few of the tracks that feature organ! There's 3 versions of the great track "Killy", an anthemic ditty that's sung by Nicole Croisille, and played again on solo organ – and other tracks include "Descente", "Peggy", and "13 Jours En France". Great great stuff, and a soundtrack that we're really excited to have! LP, Vinyl record album
