Bruno CanfornaIl Vostro Super Agente Flit ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... $18.99
With "super agent" in the title, you can bet that the soundtrack's plenty darn groovy – very much in the best spy spoof mode of the 60s – with a groove that has more conventional styles given a nice little twist! The music is sometimes jazzy, sometimes mod, and sometimes more brooding – but throughout the set, there's a really great sense of variety, with vibrant instrumentation that more than lives up to the comedic look of the cover! The record's one that you'd file nicely next to American soundtracks like Our Man Flint or Man From Uncle – and Bruno Canforna uses loads of great instrumentation throughout – including bits of vibes, eerie organ lines, offbeat woodwinds, and a fair bit of added percussion – which underscores the drama with some great organic flourishes. CD features 25 tracks in all – the first release we've ever seen of the music! CD

Antoine Duhamel/Anna KarinaPierrot Le Fou/Weekend ... CD
Philips/Rambling (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most playful soundtracks ever penned for a film by Jean-Luc Godard – a really lovely batch of music scored by Antoine Duhamel, and featuring a bit of vocals from Anna Karina! The main instrumental score is almost tongue-in-cheek at times – kind of a Godardian parody of more dramatic film scoring modes – stretched out beautifully by Duhamel with styles that are quite vibrant, but which also poke some holes at more conventional modes. The tunes always hint at some warmth or emotion, but quickly move into another direction – much like the characters in the film – and even the few jazzier numbers have an unsettling feel that ties them to the rest of the work. Anna Karina sings on the tracks "Ma Ligne De Chance", "Jamais Je Ne T'Ai Dit Que Je T'Aimerai Toujours", and "Mic Et Mac" – and other titles include "Ferdinand", "Pierrot", "Soiree Perdue", "Sans Lendemain", and "Twist Pour Jean-Luc". CD also includes 7 more groovy tracks from the film Week-End – titles that include "Footit Et Chocolat", "Lamento", "Alice Au Pays Des Syllogismes", and "Elle Et Lui". CD
