✨✧ Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon (picture disc) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". LP, Vinyl record album
(45th Anniversary limited edition picture disc!)

Pete KnutsenOperation Cobra/Operasjon Cobra (with download) ... LP
Moving Music (Norway), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A killer 70s soundtrack from the Norwegian scene – one that's filled with spare funk groovers and plenty of keyboards – in a way that reminds us a lot of Dave Grusin's music for Three Days Of The Condor – or maybe Henry Mancini on The Thief Who Came To Dinner! Pete Knutsen clearly listened to both of those records before making the music for this film – but that's OK with us, as both sets are some of our favorites – and Pete also manages to add some great touches of his own – including some more upbeat funky numbers that almost hit a Lalo Schifrin mode! Titles include "Apningstema", "Morse", "Findlandshette", "Gardsplassen", "Purken Kommer", "Tomgods", "Dragejakten", "Hjemme Fra Skolen", and "Terrorister". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies, includes download.)

Piero PiccioniAl Cinema Con Piero Piccioni Vol 1 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A sublime late 60s document of the earlier Italian film themes of Piero Piccioni – all served up here as jazzy instrumentals that take us back to the freshness he brought to Italian soundtracks at the start of the decade! Many of these numbers have a brash Rome jazz sort of vibe – that new sense of small combo energy that was really taking place in the city once things were getting back in shape during the postwar years – music that's got the soulful currents of American hardbop from the 50s, but lots more fresh and lyrical elements over the top – new ways of using flute, tenor, trumpet, organ, and vibes – and a fair bit of inspiration in the rhythms from Brazil and Cuba too. Make no mistake, there's definitely some soundtrack qualities to the music – but more in a Henry Mancini or Lalo Schifrin jazz side of the spectrum. This first volume features selections composed for the films Le Mani Sulla Citta, Chi Lavora E Perduto, Nude Calde E Pure, and Il Terrorista – with titles that include "Waltz Of You", "Flash Back Promenade", "Night Prowl", "Jazz Lover", "Port Royal Blues", "Polvere Fumo", "Eagle", "Gorgon Blues", and "Fast West End".

Armando Trovajoli/I Cantori Moderni7 Volte 7 – Original Soundtrack (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatball (South Korea), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Wonderfully groovy stuff – and one of the best soundtracks ever by the great Italian composer Armando Trovajoli! The record has a very similar feel to his legendary Seven Golden Men soundtrack – with a groovy swinging jazz vocal group (I Cantori Moderni) over jazzy riffing and groovin – on upbeat tunes that are very cool, with a mod 60s style throughout! The whole thing swings mightily – and kind of feels like what might have happened if the Swingle Singers ever recorded with Lalo Schifrin – his best jazz-infused instrumentation, and their wonderfully dynamic vocal approach. Titles include "The Getaway", "Seven Times Blues", "The Big Brain", "Jail", and "Seven Times Seven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiPoliziotto Sprint (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic Italian cop work from the mighty Stelvio Cipriani – one of the few Italian composers who can work in a heavily electric mode, yet still get the richness of that scene's more acoustic years! The music is heavy on guitar and keyboards – but not in the later way inspired by Goblin and some of the late 70s giallo soundtracks – as Stelvio balances things out nicely with some funky grooves on the heavier tracks, and some warmer woodwinds on the mellower moments – making for just the right sort of blend of full-on action and more contemplative moments that folks like Lalo Schifrin pioneered back in the 60s. LP features 18 tracks in all (bonus CD includes 20 tracks) – only two of which were ever released on a single – "Speed Machine" and "Crazy Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300 – on 180 gram vinyl & bonus CD!)
Also available Poliziotto Sprint ... CD 18.99
