✨✧ Pierre Bachelet/Stanley MyersHistoire D'O/Histoire D'O #2 ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1975/1984. Used ... $16.99
A cool pairing of 2 different soundtracks – one by Pierre Bachelet and one by Stanley Myers, each to a film chapter of the kinky Story of O! Bachelet's score is the best – with a spacey quality, a dreamy rainy afternoon sound, nice touches of electronics, and a good mellow feel. Titles include "O'Apres", "O'She's A Lady", "O'Et L'Amour A Trois", "O'Et Sir Stephen", and "O'Et La Photo De Jacqueline". The Myers score is more tied to the mid 80s period for which it was written – with some sparkly keyboards, synth percussion effects, and dark emotional strings. Titles for that one include "Triumph Of O", "World Of O", "Young O", and "Initiation of Carole" – but it's all a bit cheesy! (Soundtracks, French) CD

Francois De RoubaixFrancois De Roubaix Anthologie Vol 1 ... CD
Play Time (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $19.99
Incredible soundtrack work! We know little or nothing about Francois De Roubaix, and the films these tracks are from are even more obscure – but trust us, this is a great set of tracks! De Roubaix follows in a tradition of strange baroque arrangements that's vaguely similar to early work by Michel Colombier, with touches of romanticism from Francis Lai – but it's got a strange twist that's all its own. These tracks feature odd bits of electronics, weird guitar parts, haunting woodwind passages – and almost always, a commitment to keen melody and inventive instrumentation. A few cuts are a bit cheesy, but others are jaw-droppingly fresh – and are some of the best soundtrack work we've been exposed to in a long time. There's a total of 35 cuts in all – with tracks from the films Chapi-Chapo, Les Aventuriers, Commissaire Moulin, Tante Zita, Sial IV, and Le Provocateur. (Soundtracks, French) CD

Francois De RoubaixLe Saut De'Lange/Les Anges ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
A beautiful score from the legendary Francois De Roubaix – a soundtrack that has a bit less electronics than some of his famous records, but a sound that's completely amazing all the way through! Francois has this incredible ear for sonic textures – so that he can pull out unusual frequencies from a piano or keyboard line, or some odd passage from a woodwind – then put them together with a really unique sense of timing and space, which seems to make each great element resonate even more strongly with the others! There's a slow-stepping brilliance to the whole thing that really makes for a lot, even in the short space of the soundtrack – and titles include "Drive In" and "Le Saut De L'Ange", in a few variations – plus the tracks "Les Anges" and "Larry", from a 45 release from 1973.
