Georges DelerueGeorges Delerue Film Music Collection (Comme Un Boomerang/Les Insulaires/Fantomas/L'Incorrigible/Va Voir Maman/Banlieu Sud) (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $26.99
A heady serving of soundtracks from French composer Georges Delerue – served up in a limited 3CD set! The set begins with Comme Un Boomerang – a soundtrack that's worth the price of the package alone – 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". Next up are 5 tracks from Les Insulaires – a score that has this melancholy sense of melody, served up in a manner that's filled with those sentimental touches that Delerue could do so well – maybe better than any of his contemporaries, in the way he ever avoided going too overboard. Next are 5 tracks from a later Fantomas film – music that has this nicely pulsating sense of action and tension – with some of the playful melodies you'll know from earlier scores in the franchise, mixed with a few tracks that have a bit more suspense. The set continues with a fair bit of tracks from L'Incorrigibile – a full orchestral score from Delerue, but one that can also kick back with some lighter instrumentation at times – particularly in those warm themes that characterize Georges' best work of the 70s. Next up is Va Voir Maman Papa Travaille – a score with a few 70s funky electric touches, mixed with melodies that are sometimes humorous, sometimes sentimental – again showing Delerue as a French master of understatement. The set concludes with a huge amount of tracks from Banlieue Sud Est – a score that has some nice use of musette to underscore its Parisian qualities, mixed with other exotic elements on woodwinds, and a few more conventional Delerue passages. The package features 70 tracks in all on 3CDs – all from the Sugar Music holdings. CD

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows".

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (40th anniversary set – 3CDs/10" LP/shirt/poster) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $43.99
A gorgeous tribute to this classic Italian horror film – one that includes the 2CD soundtrack reissue, the musical version on CD, and a 10" piece of vinyl – all in a box with a movie poster and exclusive t-shirt too! The 2CD release features one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows". Newly expanded 2CD version features a full bonus disc of alternate takes from the film – 29 more tracks that feature film versions, jazz versions, source music, and lots lots more! Package also contains the CD for Profondo Rosso Il Musical – a stage show based on the 70s horror film of the same name, and features music by the legendary Claudio Simonetti! Some tracks have all the best tones of the 70s – long, spare lines on bass and keyboards – very spacious and very hypnotic, and filled with dark twists and turns. Others are vocal numbers with a slightly more tuneful feel – driven by the lyrics, which themselves have a slightly eerie quality – almost like a bunch of zombies risen from the dead, setting out to make their own show. The whole thing almost feels like a Simpsons parody at times – but in a good way – and titles include "Io E Te", "L'Amore E La Morte", "Sangue Sangue", "Melpomene", "Lo Specchio", "Horror Tip Tap", and "Al Grand Guignol". 10" LP features new versions of original soundtrack numbers – from Claudio Simonetti's revived version of Goblin!

Henry ManciniCop Show Themes ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ ... $16.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove! The group's a big one – filled with hip players who include Clare Fischer on organ, Artie Kane on electric piano and harpsichord, Don Menza on tenor, Lee Ritenour on guitar – all instruments that are used strongly to help kick things nicely on the set, with a vibe that's right up there with the best funky 70s soundtracks. Harvey Mason is on drums, bringing up the bottom a bit more than usual for Mancini – and the choice of material really makes the record cook – with tracks that include "Kojak", "SWAT", "Police Woman", "Rockford Files", "Hawaii Five O", "Streets Of San Francisco", "Bumper's Theme", and "Baretta's Theme".

Barney WilenUn Temoin Dans La Ville/Jazz Sur Seine ... LP
Fontana/Doxy, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
One of the greatest French jazz soundtracks ever – a haunting score composed and performed by sax legend Barney Wilen! Barney's work is possibly best known to American audiences for his solos on the Miles Davis soundtrack Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud, recorded a year earlier – and this album has Barney working with American players Kenny Clarke, Kenny Dorham, and Duke Jordan to forge a very similar sound. Tracks are spare, moody, and feature a style that's often snakey and a bit modal – perfect for the dark mood of the film, and equally evocative without any image! 12 tracks in all – including "Ambiance Pourpe", "Poursuite Et Metro", "Melodie Pour Les Radio Taxis", "Temoin Dans La Ville", "Sur L'Antenne", and "SOS Radio Taxis". The album also features the Wilen score from JazzSur Seine – cut with rhythmic backing by Milt Jackson on piano (!?), Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – and two cuts feature additional percussion by Gana M'Bow, which gives the set a wonderful kick. Titles include "Swing 39", "Minor Swing", "Vamp", and "John's Groove". (Jazz, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Henry ManciniCop Show Themes/Symphonic Soul ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky soundtrack-styled work by Henry Mancini – compiling the mid 70s Cop Show Themes and Symphonic Soul LPs – together in single set! Cop Show Themes is easily ne of the funkiest albums ever from Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove! The group's a big one – filled with hip players who include Clare Fischer on organ, Artie Kane on electric piano and harpsichord, Don Menza on tenor, Lee Ritenour on guitar – all instruments that are used strongly to help kick things nicely on the set, with a vibe that's right up there with the best funky 70s soundtracks. Harvey Mason is on drums, bringing up the bottom a bit more than usual for Mancini – and the choice of material really makes the record cook – with tracks that include "Kojak", "SWAT", "Police Woman", "Rockford Files", "Hawaii Five O", "Streets Of San Francisco", "Bumper's Theme", and "Baretta's Theme". Symphonic Soul is just as great – a mixture of tight large arrangements with a smooth funky edge, similar to some of his best soundtrack work at the time! The rhythm section is great – again with Harvey Mason on drums, plus Joe Sample on keyboards, and guitar by David T Walker and Dennis Budimir – and the album also features some cool solos on instruments like African finger piano and piccolo trumpet. The whole thing bounces along with a majestic approach that's very full and complicated – yet also tight and funky! Lots of nice groovy tunes – and titles include "Sun Goddess", "Symphonic Soul", "Soul Saga", "African Symphony", "Slow Hot Wind", and "Satin Soul". (Now Sound, Soundtracks) CD

CAM (Italy), 2015. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A triple-threat of rare horror soundtracks from Goblin – packaged here in a very limited collection! First up is Profondo Rosso – one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows".

Lallo Gori with I Cantori ModerniCome Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
An incredibly groovy and fairly obscure soundtrack by Lallo Gori – with some sublime scat vocals by I Cantori Moderni! The film is Come Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (How We Robbed The Bank Of Italy), which kicks off, appropriately enough, with a sly, slinky kind of crime/spy flick groove, but from there it gets a lot more upbeat and sunny – it's a real gem! Includes many varied sequences on the title theme, "Come Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia", which range from stripped down flute, to baroque jazz, to uptempo Italo R&B, to eerie suspense sounds and beyond – often with the those flawlessly groovy Cantori Moderni vocals! 15 in all.

✨✧ John CarpenterFog (2LP 180 gram colored vinyl) ... LP
Silva Screen, 1980. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wonderful sounds from the great John Carpenter – one of those records that reminds us that his music is often just as important as the images he puts on the screen! Carpenter's music for The Fog follows nicely in his work for other films – particularly Halloween – in that it's got this slow-building style that often makes great use of keyboards – often used sparely, with a really spooky sort of energy – and even more space, and at slower speed than his other horror soundtracks! The style really fits the "fog" theme of the film! The soundtrack kicks off with the indispensable prologue from the movie – with the old man telling the ghost story with just the sparest of background keyboards – and other titles include "Theme From The Fog", "Rocks At Drakes' Bay", "Tommy Tells Of Ghost Ships", "Blake In The Sanctuary", "Dane", "An Evil Plan", "Morgue", "The Fog Approaches", "Revenge", "The Fog Enters Town" and more. 33 tracks on 2LPs!

✨✧ Michel ColombierLes Onze Mille Verges/Tarot ... CD
Music Box (France), 1973/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of wonderful soundtracks from the great Michel Colombier – and film music that's every bit as groovy as some of his backings for French singers at the time! First up is Les Onze Mille Verges – 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". Tarot is a soundtrack that has a slightly different style – some nice use of vocals by Nanette Workman on a few tunes – a singer who brings a bit more soul to the record than the usual throwaway disco lyrics you'd hear on other European film scores. Lots of other numbers make use of keyboards, but in a very different way – sometimes stark and cold, but still quite tuneful – sometimes bubbling with a more Rhodes-like vibe that creates a nice sense of balance. Titles include "Breakdown", "Blind Luck", "Tarot", "Incantation", "Reading The Cards", "Doggie Style", and "Hearing Aid". CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIl Pentito/Rappresaglia ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1973/1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Two Ennio Morricone scores in a single package! First up is Il Pentito – a later score from Ennio Morricone – but an incredibly beautiful one too – penned for a mid 80s mafia film set in Sicily, but featuring some of his sweetest, most sensitive work of the time! There's a very bittersweet feel to most of the music here – a quality that's almost romantic at times, but touched with really blue notes too – as the tunes spin out in slow, thoughtful progressions that echo the darker choices and themes of the film. There's a few more upbeat tracks, and a few darker, atonal numbers – but overall most of the score is steeped in melancholy – with gentle strings and woodwinds that have plenty of trademark Morricone touches! Titles include "Il Pentito", "Messaggio", "Retata", "Momento Decisivo", "Sicilia", "Durante L'Omelia", "Confusi Ricordi", "Sicilia Dei Ricordi Lontani", and "Evento Finale". Rappresaglia is a war drama, with Morricone's score kicked off with a percussion heavy march, but the sound goes on feature many of the elements of creeping tension, and haunting bits of minimal tones and bits of atmosphere of his work in the horror genre – those spare string tones and thumping piano notes the give you goosebumps!
