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 ... $16.99 18.99
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 ... $6.99
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

Henry ManciniRevenge Of The Pink Panther ... CD
United Artists, 1978. Used ... $16.99
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".

Alan TewHanged Man/Drama Suite Parts 1 & 2/Themes International Compilation ... CD
Vocalion (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $9.99
A legendary TV soundtrack – music for a show that only ran for 8 episodes, but which has lived on for decades past the original program! The Hanged Man features some of the funkiest grooves to ever come from the Themes International sound library label – cuts scored by Alan Tew, and played by the label's hip group of session musicians – including Alan Hawkshaw on keyboards and Alan Parker on guitar! Although originally billed to a group named Bullet, the recordings are actually straight sound library sessions – but funky enough to match the best cop/crime work of the time – similar to DeWolfe music used in The Sweeney! There's an armful of samples on here, and even more great funky instrumentals – and the set not only features the cuts issued as The Hanged Man soundtrack, but also the albums Drama Suite Vol 1 & 2 – the original sound library records that created the music. The CD features a whopping 47 tracks in all – including lots of short cuts never on any other Hanged Man releases – with titles that include "The Rub Contract Man", "Helicop", "Money Runner", "The Detectives", "Night Watch", "The Fence", "Total Silence", "Eyes", "Master Plan", "Big One Prelude", "Snout", "Car Patrol", and "The Heister".
