Georges DelerueComme Un Boomerang – Original Soundtrack ... LP
EMI/Pathe (France), 1976. Near Mint- ... $28.99
An excellent soundtrack from Georges Delerue – with some nice funky bits! Delerue's work isn't always the greatest, and we'll be the first to admit that he can veer towards the romantic a bit too much in his scoring. However, this lost soundtrack is a real gem – with 2 funky tracks that are totally worth the price of the record! One of these is "Espoir" – a killer funk tune with some heavy breakbeat drums all the way through, rolling over and over in a conga-driven mode that's very much in the classic South Bronx street party sound of early hip hop! The other good track is called "Free", and it's a long modal fusion jammer – with electric keyboards, and lots of hard sax riffing, kind of in the mode of Stone Alliance! The other tracks are pretty decent, too – but they're all in a mellow easy slinky sex sort of style. Titles include "La Lettre", "Boomerang", "Generique", and "La Melancolie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has light wear and one small spot.)

Sex PistolsGreat Rock & Roll Swindle ... LP
EMI, 1979. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
The soundtrack to the Sex Pistols quote/unquote documentary The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle – a crazy mess of Pistols odds, ends and quote/unquote hits – including Sid's crazy-as-hell take on Sinatra, the weird quote/unquote French version of "Anarchy In The UK" and miscellaneous errata. Definitely one of weirdest chapters of Sex Pistols lore, which kind makes it a necessity! Includes "Johnny B Goode", "Road Runner", "Anarchy In The UK", "Substitute", "Lonely Boy", "God Save The Queen", "You Need Hands", "Black Arabs", "Silly Things", "Something Else", "My Way", "The Great Rock 'N'Roll Swindle" and more.

Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has a bit of pen on the front.)

Harry Bloom/Todd Matshikiza/Pat WilliamsKing Kong – All African Jazz Opera ... LP
Decca (UK), Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Despite the colonialist overtones of the project – sort of the African equivalent to Porgy & Bess, at least in terms of authenticity – this groundbreaking musical was actually a crucial moment in the development of South African jazz. It's unfortunate that the package doesn't list the players in the ensemble – but we're certain that we hear Kippie Moketsi on sax, and most of the musical backings have a feel that reminds us a lot of early work by The Blue Notes, or Hugh Masekela. Features the instrumental groover "Kwela Kong", plus "In The Queue", "Death Song", "Damn Him", "Sad Times, Bad Times", and "The Earth Turns Over". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Double Deckers/Ivor SlaneyDouble Deckers – Musical Merriment From The Original Soundtrack Of The Delightful Children's TV Adventure ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Sealed ... $38.99
A kiddie show, but one with some distinctly Sunshine Pop touches – thanks to arrangements from lesser-known maestro Ivor Slaney! The Double Deckers was a late 60s British TV program that was something of an update of the older Our Gang films of the 30s – and true to the spirit of the times, the overall feel was a lot groovier, with a fair bit of songs in the episodes all sung by various younger members of the cast! The tracks were penned by a variety of different lyricists, and set to music by Slaney – and they've all got sunny, positive themes that remind us a lot of the best musical bits from The Bugaloos, HR Puffenstuff, or some of the other American kid shows of the time. CD features 11 tracks, in all, plus full notes on the show and music – with titles that include "Get On Board", "I Gotta Get Through", "With A Little Bit Of Love", "Good Day At Yellowrock", "Fat Ladies", "Welcome To The Party", "One Man Band", and "Grannie's Rocking Chair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing! Cover has a cutout hole in the corner.)

✨✧ Don KirshnerDon Kirshner Cuts Hair ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good ... $6.99
A great version of the Hair soundtrack – with instrumentation that's way groovier than any of Don Kirshner's throwaway pop work from later years! The set features some of Galt MacDermot's best tunes from the musical – done in a tripped-out style that reminds us of Hugo Montenegro's work from the time. Titles include "Be In", "Air/Walking In Space", "Aquarius", "Hair", "Good Morning Starshine", "Ain't Got No/I Got Life", and "Let The Sun Shine In". (Now Sound, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole.)
