Michel ColombierLes Onze Mille Verges ... LP
EMI (France), 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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". 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)... $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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

✨✧ Isaac HayesTruck Turner ... LP
Enterprise, 1974. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
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". (Soul, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Francis LaiLes Petroleuses/Dans La Poussiere Du Soleil (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
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

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniAddio Zio Tom ... CD
RCA/BMG (Japan), 1971. Used ... $24.99
A groovy little soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a set of tracks written for a colonialist narrative, but with some nice touches that keep with the time in which the music was recorded! One track features some electric harpsichord in a chunky, catchy little melody – and the album ends with a cool chase type theme that has vibes going fast over heavy beats and trumpet blasts! Kicks off with the vocal number "Oh My Love", and titles include "Maple", "Mister Ling", "Miami", "Cadet's Waltz", "Mamie", and "Rito Di Mezzanotte". CD
(Out of print. Includes obi.)

✨✧ Michel ColombierLes Onze Mille Verges/Tarot ... CD
Music Box (France), 1973/1974. Used ... 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
