Fabio FrizziZombi 2/Un Gatto Nel Cervello ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1979/1990. New Copy ... $15.99
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

Ennio MorriconeIl Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1966. Used ... $13.99
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "Insequimento", "Il Deserto", "Il Bandito Monco", "Fine Di Una Spia", "Marcetta", "Padre Ramirez", and "La Carrozza Dei Fantasmi". CD

Michel LegrandThomas Crown Affair (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1968. Used ... $18.99
One of the greatest soundtracks of the 60s – and a crowning moment of international fame for French composer Michel Legrand! Legrand already had plenty of records under his belt by the time he scored this great film – a heist movie with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway – and he brings all that experience to bear in his music here – with sounds that run from jazzy groovers to bossa instrumentals to a few vocal numbers that are completely sublime, and which show his music works equally well in English as it does in French! Noel Harrison sings the landmark "Windmills Of Your Mind", and Legrand himself sings on the killer "His Eyes Her Eyes" – both of which get instrumental versions as well – and other instrumental tracks include "The Chess Game", "Playing The Field", "The Boston Wrangler", "Doubting Thomas", "The Crowning Touch", and "Room Service". Plus, this CD features loads of unheard bonus tracks – and includes not just the 13 track album, but also 19 more titles from the original film score! CD

✨✧ Henry ManciniRevenge Of The Pink Panther ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
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". Expanded CD version features 27 tracks in all! CD

Peter ThomasMysteries Of The Gods/Botschaft Der Gotter ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $8.99
Groovy genius from German arranger Peter Thomas – a sweet little follow-up to his soundtrack for Chariots Of The Gods! This time around, the setting's a bit more funky – a great mixture of mid 70s grooves with some of the trippier touches you'd know from Peter's previous space scores – all wrapped up with impeccable German production that really makes the whole thing sparkle! Some cuts are heavy on keyboards, while others mix up modes nicely – and as usual with Thomas, there's a really rich array of great sounds that keeps things delightful throughout. Daisy Door sings on the one vocal cut – "Dankeschon Fur Das Wiedersehn" – and other cuts include "Power Boost", "Mysteries Of Humanity", "Gamblin Ostinato", "The Eyes Of The Golden Mask", "Gods & Natives", and "Crystal Skull".
