John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label stereo pressing.)

John Barry/Elizabeth TaylorElizabeth Taylor In London ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Sealed ... $14.99
A weird little record from John Barry – the soundtrack to a 1963 television special recorded by Elizabeth Taylor at the height of her early popularity, and featuring Taylor reciting a variety of poems and speeches over music by Barry! There's a relatively high concept feel to the album – as Barry's backings are fairly string-laden and serious, penned to match the mood of Taylor's presentation of material written by William Wordsworth, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Pitt, Winston Churchill, and Queen Victoria. And although Taylor speaks on about half the record, the best tracks here are actually the instrumental ones – which have more of the depth of Barry's serious soundtrack work from the time, and manage to have their own sense of presence apart from the star quality of Liz on the set. Arrangements are by Johnnie Spence, and titles include "Elizabeth", "London Theme Jazz Waltz", "Queen Elizabeth At Tilbury", "Queen Victoria", "English Garden", "The Fire Of London", "Lovers & Browning", and "London At Dawn".

Les BaxterBarbarian ... LP
American International/So Far Out (UK), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An obscure one from the great Les Baxter – his soundtrack for the film Goliath & The Barbarians, which looks like a b-grade thriller on the level of Jason & The Argonauts! Les mixes exotic touches with fuller orchestrations – a bit in the blood-and-sandals style of the time – and the tracks have sort of a "sabre dance" quality to them, with lots of dancing strings that flare up nicely – next to some moodier moments that recall some of Baxter's other exotica music too. Titles include "Ride Of The Barbarians", "Fire Dance", "Rape Of The Village", and "Barbarian Games", which is subtitled "Noisy Village", perhaps a reference to Les' big hit "Quiet Village".

Elmer BernsteinGod's Little Acre ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Elmer Bernstein's score for the sexy late 50s film based on Erskine Caldwell's book – done with a mix of southern styles, jazzy bits, and fuller orchestrations! Bernstein's music of the 50s is all just about as perfect as you can get for soundtrack scoring – and like some of his other classics, the music here works wonderfully well away from the images on screen – quite vivid overall, with an illustrative quality that's really amazing – lots of moody moments, tense action, and haunting themes – a perfect companion to Man With The Golden Arm or Some Came Running. Titles include "Gold Hunt", "The Fight", "God's Little Acre", "Diggin In The Morning", "Will's Blues", "The Love Scene", and "The Funeral". LP, Vinyl record album

Claudio GizziFlesh For Frankenstein (mixed colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99
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.)

✨✧ 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

James William GuercioElectra Glide In Blue ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
An amazing little soundtrack from James William Guercio – music composed for his only cinematic effort as a director – for a film that features Robert Blake as a Native American cop! The score is heavy on jazzy horns with an undercurrent of funk – very similar to Guercio's best modes working with the group Chicago in the early days, and his productions for Blood Sweat & Tears! The depth of the music is quite a surprise – as we never new that James had this ability on his own – and it's recorded with that crystal clear quality that made him a revolutionary talent in the studio, too. Some numbers have a tight cop show sort of funk, while others have an expansive sound that's a nice contrast – and in addition to instrumental tunes "Free From The Devil", "The Chase", "Prelude", "Monument Valley", "Overture", and "Jolene's Dance" – the set also features "Most Of All" by The Marcels, "Meadow Mountain Top" by Mark Spoelstra, and "Tell Me" by Terry Keith of Chicago. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes all extras. Cover has a small sticker on the back.)

Gerhard HeinzSchamlos ... LP
Digatone (Austria), 1968. New Copy ... $29.99
Stunning 60s sounds from the Austrian scene of the 60s – a soundtrack that's every bit as mod as music you'd hear from London or Italy at the time! Gerhard Heinz brings it all out for this sweet little gem – plenty of Hammond, loads of fuzzy rock touches, and a swinging sensibility that moves effortlessly between funky jazz and psych elements – all with a quality to rival the most outside work of the pre-prog generation in Germany! Sometimes the production is as much of a force as the performance – with the kind of echoey elements or spaced-out styles you might find in the work of Peter Thomas from the same time – and titles include "I Remember The Blues", "Seductive Annabelle", "Orgie Beim Popmaler", "White Flames", "Schamlos Theme", and "All You Ever Need Is Beat". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a great heavy book, too!)

Ennio MorriconeIl Maestro E Margherita (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $26.99
A beautifully mellow soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – and in ways that are a bit different than some of his more familiar scores from the time! The instrumentation here is heavy on strings, often with lighter woodwinds in the front – and all tunes have a slow-building melody that's really lovely – somewhat sweeter than the usual Morricone instrumental, but still with a haunting quality overall. Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on half of the album's tracks – further helping develop this compelling little tune – and the whole thing moves along at a pace that's even gentler than La Donna Invisible! Titles include "Incontro", "Titoli E Finale", and nine variations on "Il Maestro E Margherita". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nino RotaLa Dolce Vita ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label RCA International pressing with deep groove.)

Walter ScharfGeisha Boy ... LP
Jubilee, 1958. Good+ ... $2.99
Jerry Lewis as a boy geisha? Sounds like a pretty wild movie – but the soundtrack is a bit more straightforward than you might expect – a great mix of rich Hollywood scoring with some very nice "exotic" touches thrown in for good measure – a surprisingly top-shelf effort from maestro Walter Scharf! As with some of Jerry's films of the time, there's a strong sense of sentiment to the music – to offset some of the more comedic moments on the screen – and Scharf's music is surprisingly tender at points, with a quality that can echo the youthful innocence that Lewis brings to his portrayal. LP, Vinyl record album

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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.)
