Fabio FrizziZombi 2/Un Gatto Nel Cervello ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1979/1990. Used ... $14.99
A pair of weird soundtracks from Italian soundtrack heavy Fabio Fizzi – the stylistically sprawling music for Zombi 2 (released in America as Zombie) and some later compositions for Un Gatto Nel Cervello! The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to electronics reminiscent of John Carpenter, to African percussion. Wild stuff for a movie about Zombie carnage – and yes, that's the movie with the zombie-shark faceoff! Un Gatto Nel Cervello finds Frizzi working in a more classically soundtracky style – but it's done on synthesizers, which gives it seedy undercurrent! Both soundtracks on a single CD – with each consisting of multiple title theme sequences – and featuring 23 tracks in all. CD

Piero UmilianiFischiando In Beat ... CD
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
We're not entirely sure what "fischiando" means, but we can definitely testify that the album lives up to the "beat" in its title – those kind of groovy, mod tunes we love so much in Italian 60s soundtracks from the great Piero Umiliani! This set's even more obscure than most of those records, though – done for the tiny Omicron sound library, as part of Piero's Sound Workshop series – with a nice mix of jazzy instrumentation on horns, plus a sweet range of keyboards that include Fender Rhodes, Hammond, and even a bit of spinet! Some tunes have bossa rhythms, others are more 60s mod – and the record also features a few sweet bits of whistling and acoustic guitar as well – although the main focus seems to come from the horns and keyboards. Titles include "Yes OK", "Autostop Per Rio", "Fischiando In Beat", "Tokio Blues", "Go Go Go", "Sono Un NJostalgico", and "Samba Mah Na", a great remake of one of Umiliani's famous themes!

VariousHamilton Mixtape ... CD
Atlantic, 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The most amazing and groundbreaking American musical phenomenon in ages gets some love from the hip hop and neo soul community that helped inspire it – spearheaded by Hamilton driving force Lin-Manuel Miranda and the mighty Questlove of The Roots! Much like the musical itself, there's a grounding current of hip hop and soul, but the sounds are as boundless and inventive as the contributing players – which includes Common, Chance The Rapper, Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Wiz Khalifa, Busta Rhymes,Ashanti, Sia, Miguel, Nas, Usher, Aloe Blacc and many more. Titles include "No John Trumbull (Intro)" by The Roots, "My Shot (Rise Up Remix)" by The Roots feat Busta Rhymes, Joell Ortiz & Nate Ruess, "Wrote My Way Out" by Nas, Dave East, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Aloe Blacc, "Wait For It" by Usher, "Burn" by Andra Day, "Say Yes To This" by Jill Scott, "History Has Its Eye On You" by John Legend, "Who Tells Your Story" by The Roots with Common & Ingrid Michaelson, "Dearl Theodosia (Reprise)" by Chance The Rapper & Francis & The Light and more.

VariousMoog – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Universal, 2004. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
A far-reaching batch of tunes from the soundtrack to the documentary Moog – and a great document on its own, of the ever-growing influence of the synthesizer pioneer! The track list is very strong, from the retro electro pop of Stereolab, to the ambient agro Meat Beat Manifesto, to the deep thumping synth funk of Bernie & Bootsy, to the post-everythring groove of Tortoise. A surprisingly cohesive listen, too! Tracks include "Abomination" by 33, "Variation One" by Stereolab, "Bob's Funk" from The Moog Cookbook, "You Moog Me" by Jean-Jacque Perrey & Luke Vibert, "Unavailable Memory" by Meat Beat Manifesto, "When Bernie Speaks" by Bernie Worrell & Bootsy Collins, "Nanobot Highway", "Beautiful Love" by Tortoise and more. The package includes a great bonus CD of equally far-reaching tracks that aren't featured in the movie – featuring new wave classics "Mongoloid" by Devo, "Cars" by Gary Newman and "Blue Monday" by New Order, prog classics "Lucky Man" by ELP and "Close To The Edge" by Yes, "EVA" by Jean-Jacques Perry, and "Baroque Hoedown" by jingle composers They Might Be Giants.

✨✧ Yuji OhnoProof Of The Man (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funky sounds from Japanese keyboardist/arranger Yuji Ohno – one of his lesser-known film scores from the 70s, but also one of his best! The record's got a bit of a cop/crime vibe overall – with lots of warm electric touches, of the sort you might find on an American thriller of the same period – served up with lots of keyboard lines from Ohno, over a mixture of full funky backings, light string moments, and a few especially nice spare, spacey cuts! And yes, there's a little kid on the cover, but focus more on the urban setting behind him – because there's a soulful undercurrent here that's echoed in the instrumentation, and on the album's one vocal number. Titles include "Fantasia", "Get Up All The People", "The Way To The Spa Of Kirizumi", "A Key To The Mystery", "Car Chase", and "Main Theme From Proof Of The Man". (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD

Michel LegrandTwenty Songs Of The Century ... CD
Bell/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Quite an unusual album for Michel Legrand – a suite of tracks based around 20th Century standards – starting with older evergreens, and moving into some very hip tunes from the 60s! The orchestrations are amazing – with tones, colors, and rhythmic approaches that surpass conventional expectations for many of the tunes – and which are handled in a mixture of lushness and loneliness that recalls Legrand's strongest soundtrack work of the time. Titles include "Summertime", "Begin The Beguine", "One Note Samba", "Laura", "Autumn Leaves", "Moon River", "I Will Wait For You", "Yesterday", and "Mack The Knife". (French, Soundtracks) CD

Henry ManciniRevenge Of The Pink Panther ... CD
United Artists, 1978. Used ... $13.99
A later entry in the Pink Panther soundtrack series – but one that's still got plenty of great Henry Mancini touches! Themes are plenty playful, and also have some slight electric moments alongside the orchestral scoring – although most of the album's best instrumentation comes out in these exotic passages that use bits of woodwinds or percussion to create some nice effects. Tony Coe reprises his role on the theme – playing a nice solo in the middle – and titles include "After The Shower", "Ball's Caprice", "Move Em Out", "Simone", "Pink Panther Theme 78", and "Almond Eyes".

Ennio MorriconeUn Esercito Di 5 Uomini/Extrasensorial (The Link) ... CD
Beat (Italy), Late 60s. Used ... $16.99
The genius of Ennio Morricone – heard here in 2 different settings! Un Esercito Di 5 Uomini is a late 60s spaghetti western – but as usual with Morricone, the sound is way beyond the obvious – and comes across here with these fierce, dark musical lines that juxtapose sweeter strings with heavier percussion and some stark, fuzzy guitar bits! Franco De Gemini plays a bit of harmonica on the tracks, and titles include "Muerte Donde Vas", "Cinque Amici Cinque Eroi", "I Bambini E I Fiori", and "Contro Il Tempo". 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".
