Warren Barker77 Sunset Strip – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, 1959. Very Good- ... $3.99
A very groovy set of cop show jazz from the classic TV show 77 Sunset Strip – every bit as tasty as some of Henry Mancini's work for similar programs at the time! Warren Barker's got a really playful approach to the tunes on the set – mixing together straight jazz with some nice bachelor pad touches in the arrangements – often giving instruments like piano or trombone a slightly off-kilter feel, thanks to the way they're recorded. Most of the tunes have swinging and jaunty rhythms that groove around in a cool late 50s sort of way – and although there's a few standards thrown into the mix, the overall presentation is fresh enough to make them feel like originals! Titles include "Late At Bailey's Pad", "Cleo's Theme", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Kookie's Caper", "Stu Bailey's Blues", "Caper At The Coffee House", "77 Sunset Strip Cha Cha", and "Blue Night On The Strip".

Stelvio CiprianiBermude – La Fossa Maledetta (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
Sweet funky sounds from the great Stelvio Cipriani – very much in the slinky sexy style of his Italian work of the early 70s, but given a bit more of a kick in the rhythms, and some slight island flavors for the film's Bermuda setting! Instrumentation is mostly electric – riffing guitar, bubbling keyboards, and lots of great basslines too – and Cipriani knows how to space things out at the right moments with some mellower, gentler tunes – those slinky little numbers that can really seal the deal on some of his best soundtracks of the 70s! CD features a huge amount of unreleased tracks, and bonus cuts too – a total of 31 numbers that include "Angelica", "Magic Dawn", "Sail Boats", "Forze Oscure", and "Storm In A Teacup". CD

Henry ManciniCop Show Themes ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ Dominic FrontiereHammersmith Is Out ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great soundtrack to a very strange film – a late Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor vehicle, with a very weird-sounding plot! The album's got some wonderfully groovy numbers that have a real kick to them – bass and drums dancing away on the bottom, with nice use of guitar and organ to soup up the groove! The mellower numbers are also really nice too – with a slinky sexy 70s groove that's got the feel of some of the best Italian work of the time. Sally Stevens sings on the track "For Openers", and other titles include "Cookout Society", "Under The Bridge", "Topless Rock", "Kiddo", "Get Me Out Of Here", "Snake Dance", and "Hammersmith Is Out".

✨✧ Don Ellis/Brad FiedelFrench Connection Collection (French Connection/French Connection II/Popeye Doyle) ... CD
La La Land, 1971/1975/1986. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Great thriller soundtracks back to back on one CD – the soundtracks for both French Connection films, both handled by funky jazzman Don Ellis – plus the even rarer score for the later Popeye Doyle film, by Brad Fiedel – packaged here with other rare bonus tracks too! The music by Don Ellis is really incredible – a real cut above other 70s cop and action soundtracks, with a dark edge that shows that Ellis had been listening to some of the hipper European soundtrack composers of the time, but was still also cool enough to kick in with a badass kind of groove whenever he could! The instrumentation on the tunes is very odd – familiar, yet askew – as trumpet, guitar, and keyboard bits come off with some very weird effects. The sound of Popeye Doyle is a bit different – given that the film was an 80s TV addition to the French Connection narrative – with Ed O'Neil in the lead role that was previously handled by Gene Hackman. But Brad Fiedel's score is still pretty nice – definitely more 80s in its instrumentation, but handled with a mode that echoes the Ellis years, with the flavor of a decade later. This 2CD package has way more material than the previous issue – with a total of 48 tracks from the first two films – and 29 more from Popeye Doyle – a whopping 77 tracks in all, with some great notes too!

Luis BacalovCarrefour/Sistemo L'America E Torno ... 7-inch
RCA/Four Flies (Italy), 1974/1976. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
One of the funkiest tunes we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – quite different than both the western and sentimental soundtrack material that's usually his better-known work! "Carrefour" has a wicked drumbreak at the start – snapping under cool wah-wah guitar that's very loose and open – while a bassline kicks in and makes the whole thing even better, and organ, tenor, and percussion build as the tune moves on! "Sistemo L'America" has lots of percussion right at the start – funky congas next to more great bass – topped with tinkling piano, sweet flute, and some very nice organ!

Francis LaiLes Petroleuses/Dans La Poussiere Du Soleil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. Used ... $9.99
Two unusual western scores from French maestro Francis Lai – an artist who's usually better known for his romantic soundtracks of the 60s and 70s! Les Petroleuses has a nice variety of sounds – some of the slinky, sexy, Euro-styled numbers you'd expect from Lai in the early 70s, and from a film starring Brigitte Bardot – mixed with other tracks that seem to foreground a version of the old west that's a bit playful – using barrelhouse piano or guitar to set a mood in time an dplace. There's a few vocal numbers – "La Ballade De Frenchie King" sung by Little Sammy Gaha, "La Vie Parisienne" sung by Micheline Presle, and "Prairie Woman" by Claudia Cardinale – and other tunes include "Merry Making", "Seduction", "Piano Saloon", "L'Attaque Du Train", "Le Noel Des Sarrazin", and "Bougival Junction". Dans La Poussiere Du Soleil has a nicely laidback vibe – a few western elements at times, like harmonica or guitar – but also some straighter 70s scoring, especially this nice deeply-diving sound that kicks off a few numbers with that subtle sense of drama we love in the music of Francis Lai. Titles include "Colt", "L'Appel De L'Ouest", "San Angelo", "Dans La Poussiere Du Soleil", and "L'Affrontement". CD

Michel Magne/Bernard GerardLes Tontons Flingueurs (And More) (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A set of groovy tunes from mad mid 60s French films – recorded in a variety of wild styles! The set features tracks from a number of movies directed by Georges Lautner – including Les Tontons Flingeurs, Les Barbouzes, Ne Nous Fachons Pas, and La Grande Sauterelle – all slightly whimsical films, scored here in the manner of groovy movies from mid 60s America or London! Michel Magne's work kicks off side one – and Bernard Gerard throws in some nicely rocking touches on side two, to match the mood of the other tunes – making for a pretty crazy batch of tracks with a strong 60s feel! Titles include "Ne Nous Fachons Pas", "Barbouzes En Folie", "Du Riffi Au Chateau", "Slow Des Tontons", "Route De Nuit", and "Mechoui". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isaac HayesTruck Turner ... LP
Enterprise, 1974. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive work from Isaac Hayes – a hard and heavy soundtrack that we like even more than his classic work on Shaft! Unlike Shaft, Ike actually starred in the film Truck Turner – which may be one reason why he brought his full game to the table for the record – and scored a batch of badass tunes that still stand with some of the best funky soundtrack work of the 70s! The rhythm's especially hard on the best cuts – really crackling with a lot of intensity, and a stark, hard funky sound that's made the record a favorite of beatheads for years! Ike kicks it hard on cuts like "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile", "House Full Of Girls", "Drinking", "Give It To Me", "Now We're One", "Breakthrough", "House of Beauty", and the massive title cut "Truck Turner".

✨✧ Lallo Gori with I Cantori ModerniCome Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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.
