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! (Funky 45's, Soundtracks) 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

✨✧ 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

✨✧ Francis LaiLes Petroleuses/Dans La Poussiere Du Soleil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. Used ... 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
