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

Alessandro AlessandroniI Cantori Moderni (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
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".

John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Very Good- ... $6.99
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)... $4.99
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.)

✨✧ 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!)

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (40th anniversary set – 3CDs/10" LP/shirt/poster) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. Sealed (reissue)... $49.99
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 ... $6.99
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- ... $7.99
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

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

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
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

Jacques TatiPlaytime ... LP
United Artists, 1968. Very Good+ 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has clear tape on the seams.)
