James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
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".

Stelvio CiprianiConcorde Affaire 79 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
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

Ernest GoldGood Luck Miss Wyckoff ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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!)

Michel LegrandLa Flute A 6 Schtroumpfs ... LP
Polydor (France), Late 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Some of the most whimsical music ever penned by Michel Legrand – scored for an early Smurfs film – a very odd setting for Legrand, but one that he still handles beautifully! There's a handful of serious tunes, mixed in with music that's a lot more playful and cartoony – including a number of strange vocal songs, sung in goofy voices. Titles include "Hyme Au Travail", "La Flute A Six Schtroumpfs", "Le Ballet De Torchesac", "Le Roi E La Flute", and "La Fete". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter ThomasMysteries Of The Gods/Botschaft Der Gotter ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99
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 ... $8.99
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 BrownBlack Caesar ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used ... 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
(German pressing in a non-gatefold glossy cover.)
