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!

Alessandro AlessandroniI Cantori Moderni (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the coolest albums we've ever heard from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that's heavy on the vocal interplay of his I Cantori Moderni group, but which also features lots of dark musical elements as well! The blend is incredible – soaring harmonies on one hand, served up with plenty of jazz – but some cool instrumental twists and turns underneath, which often create a moody quality that really contrasts the vocals! Alessandroni's always been great – but this album takes his genius to a whole new level – with cuts that include "Verso L'Infinito", "Ciocando Con Le Note", "Valzer Del Baraccone", "Nella Balera", and "Ghen Ghen Ghe".

Georges Delerue & Slam StewartCalmos ... LP
Black & Blue (France), 1975. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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.)

Pino DonaggioHowling (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Waxwork, 1981. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99 37.98
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
(Beautiful pressing – with splattered red and white vinyl!)

Stan Getz/Eddie SauterMickey One – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
An excellent one from Getz – recorded here as the lead soloist over backings composed by Eddie Sauter, designed to accompany the film Mickey One, an early directorial effort from Arthur Penn (and starring Warren Beatty as well!) The score has a very edgey quality to it, and Getz's playing is superb – a clear contrast to his breathier bossa work of the same vintage, and proof that he was growing tremendously as a player at the time. Titles include "Where I Live", "The Creature Machine", "Morning Ecstasy", "As Long As I Live", "Mickey's Theme", and "On Stage". (Jazz, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a name in marker on back, stickers on the spine, and some splitting on the bottom seam.)

Claudio GizziFlesh For Frankenstein (mixed colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1973. Sealed 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".

✨✧ Henry ManciniCharade ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good ... $5.99
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 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 MorriconeSacco E Vanzetti ... LP
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

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".

✨✧ Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Blind Faith (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites – and with some bonus alternate takes! LP, Vinyl record album

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
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
(White label mono promo! Cover has some wear and a mostly peeled tracklist sticker.)

Bruno SpoerriLangstrasse Zwischen 12 Und 12 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the moodiest records we've ever heard from Swiss musical madman Bruno Spoerri – and that's saying a lot, given the wild quality of some of his other work! The album's a soundtrack for a Swiss TV show from the start of the 70s – but it's delivered with a much more offbeat, sophisticated vibe than anything you'd hear on American TV at the time – with these openly-flowing tracks that often have jazz currents that drift in and out of the pulsing rhythmic elements – never straight jazz, never normal soundtrack funk, but this weirdly watery hybrid of both! Part of the charm comes from these amazing vibes – played by Ueli Staub, who we don't know at all, but who really colors the music alongside Fender Rhodes and "prepared clavinet" from Bruno, plus some beautiful trumpet lines from Franco Ambrosetti, and tenor, flute, and soprano sax from Fernando Vincecio. Titles include "Neon Pink & Blue", "Dawn At Long Street", "Little Italy", "Strip Bar", "Sweetie Night", "Sirtaki Nights", "Nino Rotunda", and "Calm Places". LP, Vinyl record album
