Alessandro AlessandroniDi Tresette Ce Ne Unto Tutti Gli Altri Son Nessuno (special edition) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Introspective work from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – mostly a western-themed score, one that features spare tunes that focus strongly on his own ability to play guitar with a haunting, ethereal quality! A few tracks have some nice electric instrumentation submerged in the mix – creating a cool juxtaposition of wah wah or keyboards and plucked acoustic guitar – and this well-done release features a total of 25 tracks in all, on vinyl for the first time ever!

✨✧ Luis BacalovWe Still Kill The Old Way ... LP
United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great thriller soundtrack – by one of the Italian masters of the 60s! Bacalov's score for the film mixes jazzy numbers with more suspenseful orchestral ones – but the best cuts have a jaunty groovy quality, of the sort you dig these old Italian soundtracks for! Bruno Nicolai conducted the orchestra, and the nicest cuts have choppy percussion and some good instrumental elements, like sax or organ. Includes the bossa groover "We Still Kill The Old Way", plus "Is It Wrong", "Jazz Club", "Laurana's Suspicion", and "The Arrest". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has moderate wear.)

John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Very Good ... $19.99
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".

John Barry/Matt MonroQuiller Memorandum ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A sweet little soundtrack by John Barry – very different than the full-on style he used for James Bond – but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The music was written for a spy thriller starring Alec Guiness, George Segal, and Max Von Sydow – a moody film that's handled here by Barry with a spacey quality that's mighty nice – lots of isolated instruments floating along, sometimes with weird effects that are almost watery – all in a space that's somewhere between Barry's work for The Knack, and that new sense of space that Morricone was bringing into 60s soundtracks. The result is a real treasure – one of Barry's best film scores – and titles include "Autobahn March", "Downtown", "Oktober/Walk From The River", "Quiller Caught/The Fight", "Quiller & The Bomb", and the theme "Wednesday's Child", sung by Matt Monro.

Stelvio CiprianiUn'Ombra Nell'Ombra (Ring Of Darkness) (180 gram vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Erotic demonic genius from Stelvio Cipriani – a slinky little soundtrack that's even more electric than some of his other 70s work! The vibe here is still very much in the best Ciprani mode of the time – often slightly funky, with undercurrents of groove that run through the tracks via electric basslines that step, dip, and turn nicely. But even better are the keyboards on the set, played mostly by Claudio Simonetti – sometimes in a spare and spooky way, but at others in a bolder style that recalls the best Italian scores by Goblin from the same stretch. There's less of the Goblin rock quality here, and more of the Ciprani sense of space – and the combination of modes makes the score an especially memorable one – served up in the usual Digitmovies high standards!

Nat Dove & The DevilsPetey Wheatstraw ... LP
Magic Disc/Dolemite, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 12.99
One of the funkiest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s – a rare indie gem from Nat Dove & The Devils! Dove's got a style that's a lot rougher and rootsier than other soundtrack artists of the 70s – an approach that's more based in the modes of the indie funk underground of the time, and less in the more polished studio funk you'd find on bigger film releases. The grit in the grooves is wonderfully welcome here – and it's a quality that really sets this one apart from the pack, and keeps it in heavy rotation over the years! Most of the tracks on here are instrumentals, and a few of the cuts have vocals by Mary Love – and titles include "Joy", "Petey Wheatstraw", "Steve's Den", Junkie Chase", "Zombie March", "Ghetto Street USA", and "Loving You".

Johnny KeatingRobbery ... LP
London, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A killer soundtrack from jazzy Johnny Keating – a set that we'd rank right up there with his other non-film work of the 60s! The score's got a bold, edgey sort of quality – one that shows a real maturation in Keating's music since the earlier part of the decade – but still that great sense of rhythm and repetition that first made him stand out so strongly. The horns are especially great – bold and brassy one minute, then laidback and compressed the next – filled with great colors and tones that show a link back to Stan Kenton sounds of the 50s, turned towards much groovier ends for Johnny's 60s generation. All tracks are originals, and the titles include the lead vocal "Born To Lose", sung by Jackie Lee – plus "Kate's Theme", "Gang's Arrest", "Accident", "Diamond Robbery", "Breaking Into The Mail Van", and "Passing The Mail Bags".

Harry LubinOne Step Beyond ... LP
Decca, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Harry Lubin did the soundtrack for this classic sci-fi digest TV show, and Decca released the whole thing in a beautiful colored foil cover, with a picture of the Milky Way raidiating colorful rays over a shiny space set! The bulk of the tracks are orchestral, but they've got a haunting quality that's a great example of the kind of eerie suspense and space themes you can get when you arrange a string section with a lot of atonal sounds! Titles include "Weird", "Paris", "Island Off Spain", "Fear", and "Jungle Aire". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing in the foil cover.)

Franco MicalizziItalia A Mano Armata (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A driving Italian soundtrack from the height of the cop/crime years – done with really full arrangements by Franco Micalizzi, in a way that easily rivals some of the best American work of the genre in the 70s! Most of the orchestrations are quite bold – upbeat rhythms with basslines punching up the bottom, and horns overflowing on the top – all in a brashly brassy style that really fits the high level of action in the film! Other numbers get a bit more mellow, but not in a spooky, atonal way – more in a slightly sweet quality that almost has slight 70s erotic undertones. A few other tracks almost get clubby at points – mixing guitar, keyboards, and snapping rhythms into some great instrumental grooves that might have been right at home on the dancefloor in New York. Reissue features 20 tracks in all – including "Too Much Nosy", "Hard Falling", "The Child & The Sister", "A Dirty Trick", "The Criminal Gang", "Death In A Cave", and "Damned Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500!)

Franco MicalizziNapoli Violenta (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A classic 70s Italian crime soundtrack – presented here in full format for the first time ever, and filled with wonderful tunes in a variety of styles! There's a quality to the music that really matches the badass image on the front – a bold, forceful approach that has the upbeat numbers strutting along with plenty of pride – and which has the mellower, more brooding tracks working themes that are simple, but which pack the same force as the revolver on the cover. Franco Micalizzi uses some great keyboards throughout – often a bit light, with a style that's sometimes veering towards electric harpsichord, but other times in a more Goblin-like mode – almost horror-styled, especially when interwoven with acoustic piano. Tunes build up with force as the soundtrack rolls on – and titles include "Rush For A Sign", "Useless Waiting", "Crime Outcome", "The Violent Face", "Fire In The Garage", "Welcome To Napoli", "Bitter Success", and the vocal number "A Man Before Your Time".

Ennio MorriconeSacco E Vanzetti ... LP
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An unusual period score by Ennio Morricone – and a record that turned out to be one of his most successful of the 70s! The film, as you might guess from the title, is about the famous and unjust trial of Italian-American activists Sacco & Vanzetti – and in keeping with that setting, a number of the tunes have a folksy, almost "historic" quality to them. Other tracks still have nice Morricone-esque touches – like solo electronic keyboard on one track, or a nice bit of oboe on another – and Joan Baez sings the folksy "Ballad of Sacco & Vanzetti". Titles include "Speranze Di Liberta", "Nel Carcere", "Sacco E Il Figlio", "E Dover Morire" and "Here's To You", which features some backing work by I Cantori Moderni. LP, Vinyl record album

Philippe SardeLes Choses De La Vie ... LP
Philips/Transversales Disques (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Our favorite album ever from French soundtrack maestro Philippe Sarde – and maybe one of our favorite French soundtracks too! There's a really special quality to this music – as rich as some of Sarde's other scores, but maybe linked more towards the new wave of subtle expression that came about in French cinema after the nouvelle vague – that quality that you might hear in the music of Francis Lai at his most subtle moments, handled perfectly here. Tracks are relatively short – mostly spare variations on a sad, dreamy little melody that's played in the film as the car of the main character slowly crumbles in an accident – a death that begins the movie, which then tells the story backwards! The tune only features swells of strings and piano, but it's compelling enough to hear in a number of variations here – and mixed with a few other great melodies too, including one song sung by the film's stars Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider. Titles include "L'Accident Ralenti", "Prelude A L'Accident", "La Chanson D'Helene", and "La Mort". LP, Vinyl record album

Jacques TatiPlaytime ... LP
United Artists, 1968. Sealed Gatefold ... $29.99
A wonderful selection of instrumental themes from the films of Jacques Tati – the closest thing to a full soundtrack you'll ever find for any of his movies! The package was originally issued upon the release of Play Time – and about half the music here is from that film – leaving the rest of the collection to include tracks from Jour De Fete, Mon Oncle, and Les Vacances De Monseuir Hulot. Music is by Francis Lemarque, Francois Rauber, and others – and overall, the music is mostly in a small combo mode – with instrumentation that includes piano, vibes, guitar, and accordion – used in very whimsical ways throughout, with a quality that's almost as visual as the images on the screen! Titles include "Chemisettes", "Jour De Fete", "Tournee Rapide", "Que Temps Fait-Il A Paris", "Mon Oncle Adios Mario", "Le Vieux Quartier", "Au Drugstore", "Manege", "Theme African", "Musique Strand", "Paris Circus", and "Play Time".

Paul WilliamsPhantom Of The Paradise ... LP
A&M, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A soundtrack for a very silly movie – and one of the oddest albums ever recorded by the great Paul Williams – who both sings and stars in the movie as the phantom in the title! The tunes have a surprisingly heartfelt quality that really comes out when you hear them away from the movie – not nearly as future-shocky, and instead quite personal, with this sense of loneliness and pathos that we love in Paul's other work of the time. The backings are great – mixing Williams' usual smooth LA A&M sound with some slight glam touches – and titles include "Phantom's Theme", "Upholstery", "Goodbye Eddie Goodbye", "Somebody Super Like You", "Old Souls", and "Faust". (Vocalists, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some edge wear.)
