Roy AyersCoffy – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Polydor/Universal, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 24.99
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

James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
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

Galt MacDermotFresh Hair ... LP
Polydor, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
A pretty groovy set of tracks from the UK production of Hair – featuring musical direction by Derek Wadsworth, and a group that includes Alex Harvey, Frank Ricotti, and other Brit jazz rock figures! The overall format is different than your average Hair album – with some tunes from the original New York version, but other tunes that show up only on this set. Most of the tracks have lyrics, and are done in a very hippie-ish mode – and titles include "Washing The World", "Manchester, England", "Hello There", "Mr Berger", "Oh Great God Of Power", "Exanaplanatooch", "The Rally", and "One Thousand Year Old Man".

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. (Funky 45's, Soundtracks) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

Philippe SardeVincent, Francois, Paul Et Les Autres ... LP
Polydor (France), 1974. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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

Polydor (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $19.99
A nice package – with an image of Alain Delon on the front, and a nice booklet in the middle! There's a fair bit of French and European themes on here – and the set features work from Lipstick, Comme Un Boomerang, Une Femme Fidele, The Last Concert, Melody Fair, Emmanuelle 2, Jaws, Plein Soleil, Emmanuelle, Enter The Dragon, and Taxi Driver.

(Cover has one light mark from and old sticker, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ James BrownBlack Caesar ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental cuts, plus Lyn Collins, who sings a sock version of "Mama Feelgood" that's worth the price of the record alone! Includes the classic "Down & Out in New York City", plus "Blind Man Can See It", "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Dirty Harri", and "Chase".The original on wax, with the split middle gatefold cover! One of James' best records from the 70's, and includes the cuts "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Down & Out in New York City", "Blind Man Can See It", and lots more good grooves. This is the original pressing – with a split die-cut gatefold cover in the middle! (Soul, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBreakin' – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Polydor, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
The movie maybe a goofy, if undeniably amusing pop culture relic, but the Polydor soundtrack is a genuine win! This is an album that doubtlessly brought breakdance and old school hip hop culture into the eyes of middle America – but what helps it stand the test of time are some solid non-hip hop cuts like "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus & Chaka Khan, "Freakshow On The Dance Floor" by The Bar-Kays, the smooth club hit "99 1/2" by Carol Lynn Townes, "Body Work" by Hot Streak and produced by Jellybean. Also includes "Reckless" by The Glove featuring vocals by Ice T. (Hip Hop, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Pretty righteous stuff – with some vocals from Alex Bradford and other gospel singers – on cuts that nicely skirt the secular and spiritual! Produced by Jerry Ragovoy, with titles that include "Love Power", "I Gotta Keep Movin", "Good Vibrations", "Fighting For Pharoah", and "So Little Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiConcorde Affaire 79 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Peter ThomasMysteries Of The Gods/Botschaft Der Gotter ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
