Roy AyersCoffy – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good ... $79.99
What can we say? This is one of the greatest soul soundtracks ever! In a market that was dominated by the big-selling Shaft and Superfly albums, Roy slipped in this masterful blend of jazzy vibes and wah wah funk that's easily one of the best-composed records of the blacksploitation genre! The album's much more unified than your average funky soundtrack – and each track moves between styles that you'd hear on any of Roy's great albums from the time. There's heavy funk on the track "Brawling Broads", cool vibes and electric piano on "Aragon", off-beat jazz on "Coffy Sauna", and great soul on cuts like "Coffy Is The Color" and "Coffy Baby". Wonderful all the way through – and another jewel in the already-big crown of the great Roy Ayers! (Soul, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio CiprianiConcorde Affaire 79 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A really great little soundtrack – one that's got a sound that's as sexy and sophisticated as you might guess from the cover and title – served up by Italian 70s genius Stelvio Cipriani! Stelvio proves himself to be a giant both on the funky numbers and the mellower moments – the former done with these cool stepping basslines mixed with really sweet keyboards – the latter served up with slinky strings that echo some of the best Italian erotic styles of the time, complete with some great watery touches on the production! This masterful reissue really expands past the original 12 track album – to offer up an additional 15 bonus cuts, wrapped up in a lovely-looking package as well. Titles include "Affaire Theme", "Danger Call", "Martinica Feeling", "Soft Dream", "Safe Landing", "Concorde Combo", "Percussion Theme", "Life Alert", and "Suspense Drums". CD

Vangelis PapathanassiouL'Apocalypse Des Animaux – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Polydor (Germany), 1973. Used ... $6.99
A wonderfully moody set from Vangelis – very different both than his previous proggy work from the Aphrodite's Child years, and from his later new age recordings of international fame! Instead, this set's got a really careful balance between silence and sound – often using spare keyboards that are touched very gently, and sometimes mixed with just a bit of saxophone – stretching out in airy space that's somewhere in the territory of the late 70s ambient German albums on Sky Records, or some of Brian Eno's instrumental experiments too. Titles include "Creation Du Monde", "La Mer Recommencee", "Le Singe Bleu", and "L'Ours Musicien". CD

Carlo RustichelliL'Homme Presse (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Polydor (France), 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $6.99
A rare EP for the film L'Homme Presse – music that has this open, floating sort of vibe – light strings, and isolated piano lines – almost at a level that's like some of our favorite French composers from the early 70s. There's some lightly classical touches, but the sound is quite contemporary overall – with a moody vibe that reminds us of some of the darker moments from Francis Lai.

(Original pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

Philippe SardeLa Valise ... LP
Polydor (France), 1973. Near Mint- ... $43.99
A sweet little soundtrack from Phillipe Sarde – with a real mix of styles! Some of the numbers have that dreamy French sound you'll get on some of Sarde's more mellow scores – a bit airy, with floating instrumentation that sounds nice and sexy. Other tracks are more full-on – with a crashing beat and a bit of funk, in a nice action and "chase" mode – and a few tracks have vocals, but aren't as great. Overall, the score's filled with lots of great tracks – especially if you dig groovy French 70s sounds! Ttiles include "Final Pop", "Francoise", "Francesca", "La Valise", "Martini Dry", "Holiday Out", and "Un Homme & Une Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small sticker mark in one corner, but is great overall.)

Philippe SardeVincent, Francois, Paul Et Les Autres ... LP
Polydor (France), 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A soundtrack that was written for a Claude Sautet film – and it shares similarities with Sarde's other work for Sautet in the 70s, slightly somber, but also essentially redemptive. Tracks from that one include "Ballade", "Autrefois", "Catherine", "Lucie Et Julia", "Taxi", "Course A L'Argent", and "Convalescence". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter ThomasMysteries Of The Gods/Botschaft Der Gotter ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $6.99
Groovy genius from German arranger Peter Thomas – a sweet little follow-up to his soundtrack for Chariots Of The Gods! This time around, the setting's a bit more funky – a great mixture of mid 70s grooves with some of the trippier touches you'd know from Peter's previous space scores – all wrapped up with impeccable German production that really makes the whole thing sparkle! Some cuts are heavy on keyboards, while others mix up modes nicely – and as usual with Thomas, there's a really rich array of great sounds that keeps things delightful throughout. Daisy Door sings on the one vocal cut – "Dankeschon Fur Das Wiedersehn" – and other cuts include "Power Boost", "Mysteries Of Humanity", "Gamblin Ostinato", "The Eyes Of The Golden Mask", "Gods & Natives", and "Crystal Skull".

Peter Thomas Sound OrchestraChariots Of The Gods? (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Germany), 1970. Used ... $6.99
An amazing little soundtrack from German maestro Peter Thomas – even weirder and more electric than some of his famous 60s recordings! Thomas scored the music for a spooky 70s film about the possibility of aliens on earth – and did so with a bit more tension than some of his other records – mixing in some dark tones, weird sounds, and other odd elements amidst some more familiar space age-styled themes. Instrumentation often mixes conventional orchestrations with electronics and offbeat percussion – the latter of which brings an earthy, organic undercurrent that you might not expect, and which really sets the record apart from anything else at the time. A few key cuts have the trademark groovy feel you'd expect from Thomas – including the classic "Stars & Rockets" – and other titles include "Reminiscences Of The Future", "Popular Myth & The Destruction Of Sodom", "The Red Sea", "Gods From Strange Planets", "Returning To The Stars", "Rocket Science", and "Easter Island". CD features a whopping 10 bonus tracks too – all previously unreleased! CD

✨✧ James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s! James really outdid himself for this one – working at a hard burning pace that had the JBs cooking up some killer funk for just about every number in the set – and which also has James himself stepping out vocally for a few key tracks. The album features the massive groover "People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul" – a slamming track that beats nearly every number in the JB 70s catalog – plus other cuts that include "To My Brother", "Brother Rapp", "Sexy Sexy Sexy", "Slaughter Theme", "Transmogrification", "King Slaughter", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up". (Soul, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)
