Alessandro AlessandroniDi Tresette Ce Ne Unto Tutti Gli Altri Son Nessuno ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
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 ... $14.99
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+ ... $9.99
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.

Oscar Brown Jr, Sivuca, & Jean PaceJoy ... LP
RCA, 1970. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Oscar Brown's score for a hip play that he wrote (one of his many plays!) – performed by him, Sivuca, and Jean Pace. Despite the "show" quality of the material, this actually stands simply as a great Oscar Brown Jr. LP, and the production is nice and intimate, and sounds just like an ordinary studio album. Sivuca's great, and his breathy voice and playing really open up Oscar Brown with some great Brazilian touches. And as usual, the writing's great, especially on tracks like "Brown Baby", "Mother Africa's Day", "Funky World", and the great version of "Afro Blue", featuring Oscar's classic lyrics. Also features a wonderful version of Johnny Alf's "Sky & Sea" – done by Sivuca with an incredible lilting groove! (Vocalists, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Lubos FiserValerie & Her Week Of Wonders ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), New Copy (reissue)... About June 30, 2018
A dark little soundtrack that we'd pitch right up there with The Wicker Man or Rosemary's Baby – and one with a sound that's somewhere in between those two classics! The work was penned for an obscure early 70s film in the Czech new wave – and features music that's sometimes a bit folksy, sometimes a bit spiritualist – served up in a blend of light orchestrations, occasional choral passages, and eerie isolated instruments that include flute, harpsichord, organ, and bells! There's a darkly brooding quality that really reminds us of Komeda's last great moments for Polanski – but the overall sound is a bit freer, and more illustrative as well – little snippets of poetry in sound, created with a feel that's as evocative as the images they were designed to accompany. CD features 23 tracks in all – titles that include "The Magic Yard", "Talk With Grandmother", "The Letter", "The Sermon", "Sacrifice", "Questions & Answers", "Homeless", "Puppets", "In Flames", "Brother & Sister", "Forgiveness", and "And The Last".

Johnny KeatingRobbery ... LP
London, 1967. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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".

✨✧ Franco MicalizziAdolescenza Perversa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... About June 1, 2018
The world premiere of this sweet 70s soundtrack from Franco Micalizzi – a great batch of erotic-tinged tunes originally penned for an Italian film about teenage lust! The music has a warmly gentle quality that's similar to some of Ennio Morricone's work in this mode – tunes that alternate between soft strings, stepping instrumentation, and even bits of vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso, sounding a bit sweeter here than on some of her spookier soundtracks! The tunes float very nicely in the breeze – sometimes hanging bit a single piano note or two – sometimes getting a bit more drive from rhythms that verge on funky, but hang back just a bit. And as with any of the great Morricone scores from the time, there's a few key variations on the themes that spin out beautifully as the set rolls on – creating a great sense of sonic interplay!

Franco MicalizziNapoli Violenta (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
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

✨✧ Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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
(70s Columbia Masterworks pressing. Cover has light wear.)

VariousEsterno Notte Giorno D'Estate – Open Air Grooves, Daytime Breaks, Sunny & Scat Beats From The Italian Untapped Film Music Archives 1969 to ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $32.99
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian soundtrack/sound library reissue scene of the past decade or two – but instead lots of fresh tracks that really throw open the gates – with strong quality tracks that are awash in lots of groovy elements! Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title. Tracks include "Don Milani" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Cugine Mie" by Nico Fidenco, "Gideon" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Camorra" by Manuel De Sica, "Pensiero D'Amore" by Mario Migliardi, "Gisposta A Tutto" by Gianni Marchetti, "Mondo Di Notte Oggi" by Gianni Oddi Gianni Dell'Orso, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, and "Verso La Droga" by Sandro Brugnolini. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies – pressed on 180 gram vinyl and with bonus CD!)
