Don Ellis/Brad FiedelFrench Connection Collection (French Connection/French Connection II/Popeye Doyle) ... CD
La La Land, 1971/1975/1986. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
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!

✨✧ VariousGive Peas A Chance – 21 Obscure Hits & Jazzy Gems ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Kick ass funky tunes – hard and heavy stuff that feels like the best blacksploitation soundtracks you've ever heard – all the best cuts from Willie Dynamite, Trouble Man, Shaft, and Black Caesar rolled into one funky album! The source for most of these tunes is the European sound library scene – but the tracks are filled with funky drums, heavy bass, scratchy guitar, and the kind of instrumental grooves you'd expect to hear more from American soundtrack artists of the early 70s. The whole thing really kicks booty – no filler, no sleepy stuff, no jokes – just hard and funky tunes, stepping out with a delightfully tight groove! Titles include "Gateway To Crime" by Paul Kuhn, "Panier A Crabes" by Andre Ceccarelli, "Troubleshooter Vol 2" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Crime In Beat" by Fred Berlipp Band, "Big Mouth" by Simon Park, "Titel Thesen Temperamente" by Freddy Gigele, "Jet Clipper Suite" by Klaus Wuesthoff, and "Knock Out" by Boris Jojic. Great stuff – and filled with tunes we'd never heard before! (Funky Compilations, Soundtracks) CD

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiBermude – La Fossa Maledetta (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

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!

Lallo Gori with I Cantori ModerniCome Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
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.

Isaac HayesTruck Turner ... LP
Stax, 1974. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Francis LaiPassager De La Pluie (Rider In The Rain) (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic soundtrack from the great Francis Lai! The record is one of his most unusual – and features a number of short songs that focus on spare keyboard work, either on organ, piano, or electric piano, and with some cool groovy instrumentation, and a bit of light strings and woodwinds. The slow sensuous themes are among some of the best Lai instrumental work we've ever heard – and the soundtrack is a real gem from one of the best points in his career. The set kicks off with the vocal number "Le Passager De La Pluie", sung by the lovely Severine, and includes the cuts "Theme Des Voitures", "L'Arrestation", "Theme Dobbs", "Souvenir De Melancolie", "Le Viol", and "Theme Bestial". Wonderful stuff! LP, Vinyl record album
(A beautiful Japanese pressing – with a cooler cover than the original French version! Includes obi, too. Vinyl has some light marks from the old inner sleeve, but is clean overall.)

✨✧ Francis LaiLes Petroleuses/Dans La Poussiere Du Soleil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Various808 – The Music ... CD
Big Beat, 1980s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the 808 drum machine – tracks all pulled together in support of the documentary on the magical beatmaker – but a set that stands more than strongly on its own! The mix of music is great – a heavy dose of 80s hip hop and club tracks, mixed with some more contemporary cuts from recent years – tracks that mark the return of the 808 to beatmaking strength – as a younger generation of creators embrace its sound all over again! Titles include "Set It Off" by Strafe, "Play At Your Own Risk" by Planet Patrol, "Yo Bum Rush The Show" by Public Enemy, "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force, "Paul Revere" by The Beastie Boys, "It's Yours" by T La Rock & Jazzy Jay, "Flow Coma" by 808 State, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Hip Hop Be Bop" by Man Parrish, "Kickdrum" by Felix Da Housecat, "What You Gon Do" by Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz, "Vibrate" by Fluxx Pavillion, "Nothing But Trouble" by Lil Wayne & Charlie Puth, and "Gosh" by Jamie XX.
