Alessandro AlessandroniDi Tresette Ce Ne Unto Tutti Gli Altri Son Nessuno (special edition) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $33.99
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!

Stelvio CiprianiEcologia Del Delitto (Bay Of Blood) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... About October 5, 2017 (delayed)
One of the coolest 70s soundtracks from the great Stelvio Cipriani – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The music here was scored for a Mario Bava horror film, but it often has a quality that's more lean and lovely overall – that current of sex that we always love in Ciprani's best work, and which made him a key force for transforming the Italian bossa and jazz soundtrack style of the 60s into something completely new for the 70s! There's a lot of sweet keyboards in the music – as you'd expect from Stelvio – but there's also some cool rootsy percussion, which creates a nice juxtaposition between acoustic and electric, especially as things get a bit spookier near the end. Titles include "Ultimo Atto", "Solitudine Di Simone", "Teenagers Cha Cha Cha", "Due Amanti", "Evelyn Theme", "Shake Giradischi", and "Un Cadavere Nel Lago". LP, Vinyl record album

Pino DonaggioHowling (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Waxwork, 1981. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Beautiful music for this early 80s horror classic – a film that gets a bit more serious musical treatment than some of its contemporaries! In an era when so many horror composers were turning towards a keyboard-heavy sound, Pino Donaggio still has plenty of full orchestrations here – moody strings that seem to inherit a bit of a Morricone legacy, mixed with other odd, offbeat touches on insolated instruments – used spaciously, in that "less is more creepy" sort of way. Most tracks are short, and work together beautifully – with a vividly narrative quality – and titles include "Doctor's Orders", "Wolf Bites Man", "Animal Magnetism", "Fur From The Maddening Crowd", and "Eddie Lives Again". LP also features a number of bonus tracks – including five synth instrumentals. LP, Vinyl record album

Chico HamiltonSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Good+ ... $9.99
A wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s – played by the Chico Hamilton group as part of the soundtrack! The combo was a key part of the LA scene at the time, but are oddly featured as a regular club act in the movie's New York setting – but we'll gladly forgive that geographic error, given that the music on the set is so great. The quality's a bit like some of the Hamilton Quintet work on World Pacific – but there's a slightly freer, more urgent feel here too – work that's sometimes somewhat driving, and beautifully blended from the guitar of John Pisano, clarinet of Paul Horn, cello of Fred Katz, piano of Carson Smith, and drums from Chico. Side one features a lot of short incidental cuts – like "Susan", "Cheek To Chico", "Jam", and "Night Beat" – and side 2 is an extended "Concerto Of Jazz Themes From The Soundtrack Of Sweet Smell Of Success".

Paul Jones/Mike LeanderPrivilege ... LP
Uni, 1967. Sealed ... $6.99
A great little record that's waiting to be re-discovered! The album quickly tanked as the over-pressed soundtrack to an under-viewed film – but despite years in cutout bins, it's got a fresh quality that we really treasure! About half the album features cool instrumental tunes from Mike Leander – scored in that weird mix of touches that he was using in his "rock to easy" years – and these cuts are interspersed with vocal numbers by Paul Jones, sung in a dramatic style that's a bit Bowie, but with more blue eyed soul. Titles include "Free Me", "It's Overotherness Time", "I'm Alright Jackboot", "I've Been A Bad Bad Boy", and "Stephen". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesHot Rock ... LP
Prophesy, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
A sweet little soundtrack by Quincy – to an early 70s heist film that starred Robert Redford, George Segal, and Zero Mostel! The album's got a feel that's very much in the mode of Quincy's best cop show/crime work of the time – with some nice jazzy touches, handled by a host of quality players that include Jerome Richardson, Gerry Mulligan, Chuck Rainey, and Carol Caye – plus a few vocal numbers by the lovely "Tata"! The record's got some very nice instrumentals – especially the "Hot Rock Theme" – and tracks include "Talking Drums", "Slam City", "Sahara Stone", and "Miasmo". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the original fold-over cover, with a cutout notch and some wear on the top seam.)

Johnny KeatingRobbery ... LP
London, 1967. Sealed ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, but with a hole in front where a large sale sticker was applied to the cover, and a cutout hole.)

Bappi Lahiri & Salma AghaKasam Paida Karnewale Ki ... LP
Far Eastern Sunshine (Germany), 1984. Very Good- (reissue)... $8.99
A Bollywood soundtrack from the 80s generation – one that's got a style that definitely matches its decade! Tracks are long, upbeat, and joyous – in the best 70s Bollywood mode – but also feature more keyboards and drum machine rhythms, which creates this moodier quality in the music – a vibe that's maybe not dark in the way that Euro electro material might be, thanks to a few disco flourishes from time to time – but which definitely sets the whole thing apart from the classic Bollywood mode! The approach is great – almost a re-imagining of the Indian soundtrack ethos – on titles that include "Jeena Bhi Kya Hai Jeena (parts 1 & 2)", "Kasam Paida Karnewale Ki", "Dance Dance", and "Come Closer".

Henry ManciniCharade ... LP
RCA, 1963. Good+ ... $1.99
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded! The main "Charade" theme is a total gem – performed here in both a guitar-heavy instrumental version and a cool vocal version with a Mancini chorus – but the other tunes are arguably even better, and range from Euro-styled numbers to Latin groovers, to some tenser dramatic moments. The recording quality is wonderful – filled with echo and space – and titles include "Orange Tamoure", "Punch & Judy", "Latin Snowfall", "Bateau Mouche", "Bistro", and "Mambo Parisienne".

Ennio MorriconeGenti Di Rispetto ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Overlooked genius from Morricone – a mid 70s soundtrack that's filled with dark touches and some beautifully edgey scoring! Apart from a few lighter touches on mandolin, a good deal of the soundtrack features these great instrumental passages that step, halt, and almost stumble along – moving moodily with a really dark quality, yet in a way that's not nearly as atonal as some of Morricone's other scores of this nature. There's some great woodwinds, and harpsichord often seems to be used underneath the rhythms – but really buried in the mix, almost like it's being stepped on! Tracks include "Solo Per Amore", "Gente Ipocrita", "Mandolini E Chitarre", "Appendice 1", "Angoscia E Paura", and "Passeggiata A Rischio". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeSacco E Vanzetti ... LP
RCA, 1971. Sealed ... $9.99
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 "In Prison", "Sacco & His Son", "Freedom In Hope", "The Electric Chair", and "Here's To You", which features some backing work by I Cantori Moderni. LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has two cutout marks.)

Ennio MorriconeUn Uomo Da Rispettare ... LP
CBS/Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Great work from Ennio Morricone – a moody soundtrack to an obscure 1972 thriller starring Kirk Douglas – scored by the maestro with some especially inventive touches! Morricone's exploring his use of space quite a bit in this one – opening up the sound slowly, and patiently – so that you can really hear and concentrate on all the unusual sounds he creates – some almost as experimental as his work with Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, others more in that warmly musical quality you'd know from other soundtracks. The sekectuins are filled with passages of sounds and silence that interweave into each other nicely - and the album's notable for the use of some odd noise effects, too – like strange clickings and scrapings, which are balanced with the album's moodier orchestral scoring. One of Morricone's more subtle scores, and filled with some very memorable moments – on titles that include "18 Pari", "A Florinda", "Colpo Parallelo", "Un Tempo Infinito", and "L'Incarico".

Riz OrtolaniDay Of Anger ... LP
RCA, 1970. Sealed ... $14.99
A really great little western score from Riz Ortolani – a composer you might know from bigger films of the 60s, and a handful of especially nice action and comedy soundtracks too! Riz seems to be drawing on the latter a bit here – as he mixes the usual western elements with some occasional groovy touches that are mighty nice – offsetting the brooding quality of the Lee Van Cleef narrative with a mix of jazzy horns, electric guitar, and even these mod bottoms to some of the rhythms that are quite a surprise – and very welcome indeed! The cut "Fino All'Ultimo Colpo" is especially nice – kind of a slow-stepping romp that has a soulful power that's mighty nice – repeated three times alone in the main body of work. LP, Vinyl record album

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in slightly different versions, with a style that's a bit more adult and more off-center than we remember – all sitting next to some groovy instrumental tunes score by a young Dave Grusin, and shifting the mood nicely from track to track. Titles include "Whew", "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "The Singleman Party Foxtrot", "April Come She Will", "On The Strip", "The Folks", "Mrs Robinson", and "Sounds Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo Columbia Masterworks pressing.)
