James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
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

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

✨✧ Georges Delerue/Melina MercouriPromise At Dawn ... LP
Polydor, Early 70s. Very Good ... $0.99
Melina Mercouri and director Jules Dassin team up once again for this early 70s dramatic film. Music is by Georges Delerue, handled in the typical style of his more serious work at the time – with plenty of dreamy touches and more dramatic moments. The soundtrack also sports a strange vocal number called "I'm Greek", with arrangements by Alan Gourager and vocals by Melina. Instrumental numbers include "Romain's First Love", "The Friend's Farewell", "Various Professions", "Promise At Dawn", and "The Arrival In France". LP, Vinyl record album

Ernest GoldGood Luck Miss Wyckoff ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A very mellow, yet moving score from Ernest Gold – one that features lots of slower-moving moments amidst the orchestrations, with almost a Morricone-like sense of space – although there's perhaps a bit more sentiment at times in the strings. The music is quite different than usual for Gold, and orchestrated very well by Gerhard Schurmann – on tracks that include "Piano Recital", "Ed", "Coffe Shop", "Wondering In Fantasy", "Detection", "Clandestine Meeting", and "Journey To Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing – with obi!)

Ennio MorriconeRene La Canne ... LP
Polydor (France), 1977. Very Good+ ... $28.99
A light little Morricone score from the 70s, one that's almost got some touches that remind us of French work from the time! Part of the tracks are in a period mood, suiting the story – but others have a bouncing whimsical feel, one that's quite different from Morricone's usual bag. The best tracks have these weird sounds – made in a way that's partly electric, but in a way that's magically puzzling to our ears! Titles include "Rene La Canne", "La Poupee", "Les Paris Stupides", "Le Jour De Gloire", "Madame Krista", and "Passeport Pour Le Plaisir". LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo RustichelliL'Homme Presse (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Polydor (France), 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $11.99
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.

Philippe SardeLa Valise ... LP
Polydor (France), 1973. Near Mint- ... $59.99
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.)

Polydor (France), 1974. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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. New Copy ... $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
