Louis & Bebe BarronForbidden Planet – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Poppy Disc (UK), 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 17.98
Classic early electronic work from Louis & Bebe Barron – and the score to one of the best 50s space thrillers! This LP does a nice job of bringing the material out again – and although the sound quality isn't totally perfect, the spookiness of the music more than makes up for that. Titles include "Flurry of Dust", "The Landing", "Invisible Monster Approaches", and "Ancient Krell Music". 23 tracks in all – and lots of weird wonderful numbers! LP, Vinyl record album

John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the great John Barry – a set of tracks that echoes some of his famous modes from James Bond films, yet also has a unique quality all its own! Barry's got a strongly jazzy sensibility here – and spaces out some great instrumentation with the same sensibilities used in the equally great music for The Knack! Staff aren't listed, but there's clearly some great Brit jazz players in the lineup – given the record's key use of vibes and tenor solos – as well as this very cool slow-plucked guitar with a noisy, echoey quality. The sound is brilliant – everything you'd hope for in the best 60s soundtracks – and titles include "The Ipcress File", "Alone In Three Quarter Time", "A Man Alone", "If You're Not Clean I'll Kill You", "Goodbye Harry", and "Alone Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Elmer BernsteinGod's Little Acre ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Elmer Bernstein's score for the sexy late 50s film based on Erskine Caldwell's book – done with a mix of southern styles, jazzy bits, and fuller orchestrations! Bernstein's music of the 50s is all just about as perfect as you can get for soundtrack scoring – and like some of his other classics, the music here works wonderfully well away from the images on screen – quite vivid overall, with an illustrative quality that's really amazing – lots of moody moments, tense action, and haunting themes – a perfect companion to Man With The Golden Arm or Some Came Running. Titles include "Gold Hunt", "The Fight", "God's Little Acre", "Diggin In The Morning", "Will's Blues", "The Love Scene", and "The Funeral". LP, Vinyl record album
(French reissue pressing.)

Claudio GizziFlesh For Frankenstein (mixed colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99
An x-rated horror film from the team of Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey, but one that gets a surprisingly classic sort of soundtrack from the great Claudio Gizzi! Right from the start, Gizzi's music is filled with a sensitivity that's quite striking – this beautiful, poetic quality that often comes from stark woodwind passages that are interspersed with darker strings, or some oddly-tuned piano – creating a sonic pastiche that's almost narrative enough on its own, away from the film – and which definitely stands strongly on its own, maybe even more so than its use in the movie. This deluxe 2LP package features a huge amount of tracks – 35 in all – with titles that include "Frankenstein's Theme", "Castle Gardens", "Secret Passage", "Experiments In Laboratory", "Death Of The Baron", "Dream Is Over", and "Love & Death". LP, Vinyl record album

GoblinZombi – Dawn Of The Dead (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of the first great horror soundtracks by the legendary Goblin – penned for the wonderful follow-up to Night Of The Living Dead! The music is a wonderful mix of Goblin's cool keyboard lines with some fuzzier guitar bits – those rockish elements that the group virtually introduced to horror film scoring in the 70s, but which so many others would borrow from them strongly in the next decade! And given the film's slightly tongue-in-cheek approach, the use of the music works wonderfully – never cheesy, but with a knowing quality that really shows the strength of the group. Titles include "Zaratozom", "La Caccia", "Oblio", "Risveglio", "Zombi", and "Safari". LP, Vinyl record album

James William GuercioElectra Glide In Blue ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
An amazing little soundtrack from James William Guercio – music composed for his only cinematic effort as a director – for a film that features Robert Blake as a Native American cop! The score is heavy on jazzy horns with an undercurrent of funk – very similar to Guercio's best modes working with the group Chicago in the early days, and his productions for Blood Sweat & Tears! The depth of the music is quite a surprise – as we never new that James had this ability on his own – and it's recorded with that crystal clear quality that made him a revolutionary talent in the studio, too. Some numbers have a tight cop show sort of funk, while others have an expansive sound that's a nice contrast – and in addition to instrumental tunes "Free From The Devil", "The Chase", "Prelude", "Monument Valley", "Overture", and "Jolene's Dance" – the set also features "Most Of All" by The Marcels, "Meadow Mountain Top" by Mark Spoelstra, and "Tell Me" by Terry Keith of Chicago. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes poster & printed sleeve. Cover has a cut corner and a few small peeled spots.)

Gerhard HeinzSchamlos ... LP
Digatone (Austria), 1968. New Copy ... $29.99
Stunning 60s sounds from the Austrian scene of the 60s – a soundtrack that's every bit as mod as music you'd hear from London or Italy at the time! Gerhard Heinz brings it all out for this sweet little gem – plenty of Hammond, loads of fuzzy rock touches, and a swinging sensibility that moves effortlessly between funky jazz and psych elements – all with a quality to rival the most outside work of the pre-prog generation in Germany! Sometimes the production is as much of a force as the performance – with the kind of echoey elements or spaced-out styles you might find in the work of Peter Thomas from the same time – and titles include "I Remember The Blues", "Seductive Annabelle", "Orgie Beim Popmaler", "White Flames", "Schamlos Theme", and "All You Ever Need Is Beat". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a great heavy book, too!)

Ennio MorriconeLink (aka Extrasensorial) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 36.98
A rarer soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done in the early 80s, but with a definitely reminiscient of some of his eerier grooves of the 70s! The Link (aka Extrasensorial) is a spooky little horror film – and one that's served up here in some equally dark instrumentation – but which sometimes has that redemptive quality that we love in some of Morricone's best work from the time. There's some great watery arrangements on a few tracks – drifting out isolated instrumentation through larger backings in a really brilliant way – and titles include "Through His Eyes", "Video Telepathy", "The Link", "Mirror", and "Sinister". LP, Vinyl record album

Nino RotaLa Dolce Vita ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label RCA International pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (40th anniversary set – 3CDs/10" LP/shirt/poster) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A gorgeous tribute to this classic Italian horror film – one that includes the 2CD soundtrack reissue, the musical version on CD, and a 10" piece of vinyl – all in a box with a movie poster and exclusive t-shirt too! The 2CD release features one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows". Newly expanded 2CD version features a full bonus disc of alternate takes from the film – 29 more tracks that feature film versions, jazz versions, source music, and lots lots more! Package also contains the CD for Profondo Rosso Il Musical – a stage show based on the 70s horror film of the same name, and features music by the legendary Claudio Simonetti! Some tracks have all the best tones of the 70s – long, spare lines on bass and keyboards – very spacious and very hypnotic, and filled with dark twists and turns. Others are vocal numbers with a slightly more tuneful feel – driven by the lyrics, which themselves have a slightly eerie quality – almost like a bunch of zombies risen from the dead, setting out to make their own show. The whole thing almost feels like a Simpsons parody at times – but in a good way – and titles include "Io E Te", "L'Amore E La Morte", "Sangue Sangue", "Melpomene", "Lo Specchio", "Horror Tip Tap", and "Al Grand Guignol". 10" LP features new versions of original soundtrack numbers – from Claudio Simonetti's revived version of Goblin!
