A mix of moods, colors, and feelings – handled with the full range of talents of David Amram, who's one of the few composers who could pull this one off!

Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label pressing. Cover has a Gold Record Award pressing.)
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A very groovy musical – one done quite far from the bright lights of Broadway, in early 60s LA – with lyrics and presentation that offer up a wry postwar commentary on the city! The whole thing has the feel of some of the hipper off-Broadway material of the time – very witty ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

John Barry's music for the blockbuster 1976 remake of King Kong – surprisingly sensitive at points, given the action on the screen of the film!

Goldfinger ... LP United Artists, 1964. Very Good ...
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack!

A strange film, but a great soundtrack!

George Duning/Ned Washington —
Naked City ... LP Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good+ ...
One of the greatest albums of crime jazz ever!

The soundtrack to the 60s version of Stagecoach – the one with the outrageously beautiful Ann Margaret, Bing Crosby, Red Buttons, Slim Pickens and Alex Cord – with a lavish, though appropriately dust-strewn Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack! This '66 remake may not rival John Ford's landmark ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A way cooler soundtrack than you might expect – not only different than the usual western score of the time, but surprisingly sophisticated work for a movie that featured stars like Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Raquel Welch, and George Kennedy!

Titles include "Prelude ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the more period-oriented Kenyon Hopkins soundtracks from the 60s – especially considering the jazz basis of most of his other work for Verve.

We're not sure how much of this music was actually used in the crazy movie about a man with two heads from two races (white and black, natch – and starring Rosie Grier and Ray Miland), but it was produced by Michael Viner (then head of the hip Pride/MGM soul imprint), and includes two great ...
