Alessandro AlessandroniDi Tresette Ce Ne Unto Tutti Gli Altri Son Nessuno (special edition) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About October 22, 2016 (delayed)
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. LP, Vinyl record album

John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Very Good- ... $9.99
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. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
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.

✨✧ Georges Delerue & Slam StewartCalmos ... LP
Black & Blue (France), 1975. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Written by Georges Delerue in 1975, and featuring the sublime talents of Slam Stewart, who plays bass and sings along with his instrument, backed by a small combo that includes Maurice Vander on piano and Daniel Humair on drums. The sound of this combination is incredible – with a rumbling guttural quality that must have worked wonderfully with the film! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout mark and a tiny seam split – but is nice overall.)

Claudio GizziFlesh For Frankenstein (mixed colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
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
(Limited numbered edition of 1000 copies.)

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (40th anniversary set – 3CDs/10" LP/shirt/poster) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. Sealed (reissue)... $59.99
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!

Jerry GoldsmithComa ... LP
MGM, 1977. Very Good ... $8.99
A creepy Michael Crichton-directed soundtrack from the 70s! Jerry Goldsmith's excellent score for Coma is done with a moody mix of orchestrations that really underlies the eerie medical themes of the film! The instrumentation is mostly acoustic, but resonates with some nice dreamy 70s touches that come off great – a few sexy slinky moments matches with many more darker ones – sometimes conducted with a weird "watery" sort of quality to the woodwinds that's particularly great! Titles include "Study In Anatomy", "Disco Strut", "Free Ride", "The Long View", "Lucky Patient", "Chance Encounter", "OR 8", and "Love Theme From Coma", in both mellow and disco versions!

Jerry GoldsmithOutland ... LP
Warner, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of Jerry Goldsmith's darker scores of the later years – a really spooky bit of music for this eerie sci-fi movie! Although set in space, the film's music almost has a horror feel – really close, claustrophobic, and tense – put together by Jerry with these brooding string passages that move along with kind of a plodding quality, almost magnetically drawing the narrative into a cycle of doom! Titles include "Spiders", "The Buy", "The Hunted", "The Hostage", and "Final Message". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

IlaiyaraajaIlectro – Euphoric Electronics & Robotic Funk ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99
Great electronics from the Indian scene of the 80s – music that's a lot warmer and more evocative than you might guess from the "robotic" in the title – thanks to plenty of roots in the Kollywood soundtrack scene! The instrumentation is often spare, but still echoes the fuller scope of Bollywood brilliance – and at some level, Ilaiyaraaja's music here represents an 80s take on earlier Bollywood funk – sometimes a bit quirkier, due to the instrumentation – but hardly ever cold or stark at all, and very different from the kind of electronics that were brimming big on the European scene. Part of this quality really comes from the vocals – sung by singers who include KS Chitra, Malaysia Vasudevan, SP Balasubrahmanyam, Vani Jayaram, and others – often in styles that have the playful back/forth approach of Indian film lyrics. The set's a treasure through and through – with 17 mesmerizing tracks that include "Kadal Mele", "Mancha Podi", "Adi Rani", "Poo Poo Kkum", "Ilasa Sirusa", "Eswarane", "Needhi Idhu", and "Poongatre".

Quincy JonesHot Rock ... LP
Prophesy, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
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 promo sticker.)

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeHumanoid (aka L'Umanoide) (transparent blue vinyl) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A weird later Ennio Morricone soundtrack – and one with some surprising use of electronics and keyboards too! The maestro has used electric instrumentation on other scores, but this one has a pretty different feel – a handful of tracks that have more of a future-sounding quality, fitting for the movie's sci-fi story – mixed with a few others that are more atmospheric, and with more familiar Morricone elements at play. Overall, the whole thing's pretty great – and the sound is really more early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the movie – no clunky 80s keyboards, and still more 70s analogue elements that have a nice degree of warmth, even when they're trying to sound a bit cold. Titles include "Estasi Stellare", "Un Uomo Nello Spazio", "Robodog", "Incontri A Sei", "Informale Primo", "Infanzia Evoluzione E Ritorno", and "Trasmissione Difettosa Rotazione E Rivoluzione". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeLink (aka Extrasensorial) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 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".

Ennio MorriconeMorricone 60 ... LP
Decca, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 34.99
We're not sure why Ennio Morricone is making the "shush" sound at us on the cover – as the set's such a wonderful celebration of his music, it makes us want to cheer! The performance here is all new – and features Morricone conducting the Czech National Symphony in a selection of tunes from his classic film scores – in a celebration of his 60 years of giving the planet some of the most beautiful music ever written! The orchestrations are great, and really live up to the spirit of the songs – and there's a recording quality here that's different than some of the other live Morricone albums, which can sometimes flatten the music, and not have that sense of separation and isolation that make the maestro's compositions so great. Titles include "Chi Mai", "Bestiality", "La Califfa", "Death Theme", "Deborah's Theme", "Metti Una A Sera A Cena", "Croce D'Amore", "The Fortress", and "The Man With The Harmonica". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeSacco E Vanzetti ... LP
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About November 2, 2016 (delayed)
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
