Music from Klymaxx, Michael McDonald, Ready For The World, Fee Waybill, New Edition, Patti LaBelle, Kim Wilde, the Rod Temperton Beat Wagon featuring Larry Williams & the Rod Temperton Beat Wagon featuring Tommy Funderburk. (Soul, Soundtracks)CD
Two creepy old guys, with giant balls of yarn, slowly unraveling a dress worn by a sexy starlet – probably everything you need to know about the movie and the record, summed up by the goofy image on the cover! The score is definitely in the more playful Italian comedic modes of the early 80s ... read moreCD
An excellent primer for fans of blacksploitation soundtracks! The set was put together by Ice T as an homage to all the great black action films of the 70s that inspired his candy-ass gangster image – and it's a good selection of vocal hits from scores that may well be known more for their ...

A great little soundtrack that really matches the spirit of the film – Quentin Tarantino's own blacksploitation soundtrack – served up here as a mix of classics from the 70s, plus a few special tracks recorded just for the movie! The cover's got a great badass look, and the record ... read moreCD
Pan/Scan is a great name for a group like this – given that sound of this album is nicely cinematic overall, and takes us back to the days when larger format films had to be panned and scanned when they were shown on TV! There's a fair bit of electronics in the music – following on ... read moreCD
Music from Mónika Juhasz Miczura & Gipsy Star, Adrian Simionescu & Orchestre Marin Ioan, Rona Hartner, Valentin Rotary & Petre Badea, Orchestre Marin Ioan with Gabi Enescuana, Rona Hartner & Valentina Popescu & more. CD
Genius horror scoring from Phillip Lambro – an under-rated composer who really does some of his best work here for a b-grade film! The 70s vampire movie is certainly a bit schlocky, but its music certainly isn't – and Lambro works here in a subtle array of orchestrations that sparkle ... read moreCD
A triumphant little soundtrack to the second Dr Phibes film – one that's arguably more expansive and redemptive than the first, with less of the dark-edged horror touches! The style here is relatively orchestral, but drops down to contemplative moments from time to time – sparer ... read moreCD
The great Johnny Harris is one of the best Brit Easy soundtrack composers – right up there with Roy Budd at his best moments, and with a swirling mix of jazz, hard themes, and warm groovy grooves. This 1972 score isn't necessarily one of Harris' best, but it's got some great 70s moments to ... read moreCD
A really great soundtrack from Gruff Rhys – a set that's maybe even more personal and beautiful than some of his more familiar records on his own! The music's for a film about the first week that poet Dylan Thomas spent in America in the 50s – but the sound is quite different from any ... read moreCD
Coro Di Voci Bianche Dell'Arcum Diretto Da Paolo L —
In Pop ... CD Beat (Italy), 2016. Used ...
One of the stranger projects we've ever heard from the Beat Records soundtrack label – a set of tracks that really lives up to the kid-styled image on the cover – mainly because the vocals here are mostly by a kid-assembled choir! The songs are all tunes from films – music by ... read moreCD
Caetano Veloso & Jaques Morelembaum —
O Quatrilho ... CD Blue Jackel, 1995. Used ...
A beautiful batch of music that formed the score for this recent film, and an album that includes a few vocal tracks from Caetano Veloso, plus a number of other spare instrumental ones with instrumentation by guitar, bandolim, cello, and bandoneon. Veloso's on guitar on the instrumental as well as ... (Brazil, Soundtracks)read moreCD
