Warren Barker77 Sunset Strip – Original Soundtrack ... LP LP format
Warner, 1959. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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".

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
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".

New Franco Tamponi90 Notti In Giro Per Il Mondo ... CD CD format
Dagored (Italy), 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A series of short groovy themes penned by Italian soundtrack composer Franco Tamponi – put together in a mix of styles that's often pretty darn jazzy! The work has some of the whimsy of other Italian comedies from the time, mixed with some of the sharper twists and turns of the best American crime jazz of the 50s – particularly soundtracks that use sax and trumpet lines to underscore a deeper, moodier sort of feeling. Tamponi's music is a real delight throughout – surprisingly rich in feeling, and way more than just the simple repetition of a few main themes that you might find in other scores of the period. A few tunes add in some additional strings, and others kick up the rhythms a bit more – and this reissue of the material also oddly includes a few spoken comments from the control booth. 33 tracks in all – including "Svezia", "L'Altalena", "Balletto Russo", "Amore", "Soraya", "Dalia", "Poinciana", "Cecilia", "La Sbronza", "Black Queen", and "Lulu".

Michel ColombierLes Onze Mille Verges/Tarot ... CD CD format
Music Box (France), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $23.99
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
