Chet Baker & Bud Shank/Leith StevensTheme Music From The James Dean Story (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1956. Used ... $9.99
Although the initial release of this music was a cheap attempt to cash in on the tragic fame of the late James Dean, this 1956 session was also one of the nicest big band dates to come out of the Pacific Jazz catalog of the 1950s! Chet Baker and Bud Shank are the featured soloists of the set – and the group's conducted by Johnny Mandel and Bill Holman, both excellent arrangers with a strong feel for soundtrack-oriented material of this sort. Tommy Sands sings vocals on a version of "Let Me Be Loved", which is the only standard on the set – as the rest of the tracks are originals by the great Leith Stevens. The band's filled with other west coasters that you'll recognize – and titles include "The Movie Star", "Jimmy's Theme", "The Search", "Lost Love", and "Rebel At Work". (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD

Toni Biggs/Lydia/Royal Italian SymphoniaCaligula – The Music ... LP
Penthouse, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Kinky, baby! The trashy film version of Caligula was one of Penthouse Magainze's few early forays into filmmaking – and the soundtrack's a strange mixture of disco and orchestral themes. Disc one is a 12" single that features the "Caligula Love Theme" in regular and disco versions – sung by "Lydia" and pretty darn trashy! Disc two features tracks by the Royal Italian Symphonia, mostly classical and orchestral – but with titles like "Orgy On Ship", "Isis Pool", "Caligula's Dance", "Livia/Proculus Wedding", and "Wood Sequence". The cover has some nice images on the inside of the gatefold, but the music is tamer than you might think. LP, Vinyl record album

Suzanne CianiMusic For Denali ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from electronic pioneer Suzanne Ciani – and one of the earliest too! The tracks here were composed for a documentary in 1973 – one dealing with skiing in Alaska – and Ciani uses a sublime mix of acoustic piano and Buchla synthesizer for the score – laid out on long tracks that have a really organic, tuneful energy – shifting between mood throughout the course of the record – and highlighting a warmth of piano talent that we never knew about from Suzanne! The blend of electric and acoustic is fantastic – a bit like some of the Brian Eno piano/electronics experiments over the years, and some of the mid 70s work issued on his Obscure Music imprint – although here, done by Ciani a few years before, the whole thing is even more revolutionary. Titles include "Windy Corner", "Fresh Snow", "Denali", "Downhill At Last", "Getting To The Top", "Snow Climbing", and "The Last Rest". (Sound Library, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Someone who works here confesses to accidentally purchasing this album in the 70's, instead of the official soundtrack to Star Wars – but now they wish they'd still kept their copy of it! All tracks are performed by The Electric Moog Orchestra, and feature arrangements by Jimmy Wisner. The tracks aren't that different sounding from the ones on the official release, but they do have a nice groovy moog sound. Titles include "Ben's Death & Fighter Attack", "Imperial Attack", and "The Throne Room End Title". (Now Sound, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. Used ... $14.99
A great little set – way more than you might think from the cover! Ostensibly, this one's a cash-in album for the mid 70s Star Wars soundtrack craze – but since it's handled by Ellis, it's got a surprisingly funky feel, with many tracks that recall his own great soundtrack work of the time. In fact, the album only has 2 tracks from the Star Wars soundtrack – despite the fact that the logo for the movie is displayed largely on the cover – and all other tracks are originals by Ellis, handled with a sweet mix of electric funk and funky jazz soloing! Lots of nice keyboards, and titles include "Star Wars", "Orion's Sword", "Eros", "Lyra", "Ursa", "Vulcan", "Crypton" and "Arcturas". (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD

Alfred HitchcockMusic To Be Murdered By ... LP
Imperial/Capitol, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Spooky music hosted by the master of suspense himself – a classic album that features Albert Hitchcock introducing dramatic instrumentals arranged and conducted by Jeff Alexander! The format is almost a musical presentation of the same style that you'd find on Hitchcock's famous TV show of the 50s – as the spoken passages are as humorous as they are macabre, penned with a black sense of humor that perfectly fits the music. The tunes themselves are often moody, but have slight dramatic flourishes – and titles include "Suspicion", "The Hour Of Parting", "Lover Come Back To Me", "I'll Never Smile Again", "Music To Be Murdered By", and "I'll Walk Alone".

Chris JossMusic From Man With A Suitcase ... CD
Pulp Flavor (France), 1999. Used ... $12.99
Ostensibly, this is music from a fab British TV show of the 60s – but we think it's actually newer material, souped up with fake notes to make it look old. (Especially since the Brit show was called Man In A Suitcase.) Who cares though? – As the set's actually a great batch of groovy tunes, with a feeling that's very much in keeping with the best 70s cop show themes. The whole album's instrumental – and the overall feel is very similar to Lalo Schifrin or Henry Mancini's funkiest work for films during the 70s. Occasionally, you might hear an instrumental flourish that will identify the music as new – but mostly, the sound is heavy bass, hard drums, electric keyboards, and lots of wah wah guitar. Titles include "The Suitcase", "Geo's Party", "Frisky Frisco", "The Fly", and "At The Disco". (New Grooves, Soundtracks) CD

Francis LaiPop Story – The Best Psychedelic Themes By The Master Of French Film Music ... LP
Play Time (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $32.99
Some of the funkiest, grooviest sounds we've ever heard from Francis Lai – the French film composer who gave the world the soundtracks for Love Story and A Man & A Woman – but who comes across here in a style that's more like some of the best British and Italian sound library material of his generation! Most tracks have a mod, upbeat groove – jerking rhythms, sweet soulful instrumentation, and occasional chorus vocals that round things out with a very cool vibe. We recognize a few of these tracks from some of Lai's ultra-rare soundtracks (some never issued on vinyl at all) – but others are more obscure – and the set features the tracks "Keep It Cool", "Party Music", "Whitechapel", "Las Vegas Circus Ballet", "Saint Tropez", and "Cinq Pour L'Aventure". Also features two cuts with lead vocals – "Seule" sung by Nanette Workman, and "Ballet Du Voyou" sung by Victor Upshaw. (Sound Library, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sven LibaekInner Space – The Lost Film Music Of Sven Libaek ... CD
Festival/Trunk (UK), Mid 60s-Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible work from one of our favorite soundtrack artists ever – Sven Libaek, a Norwegian-born composer who recorded some of his grooviest work on the Australian scene of the 60s and 70s! Sven might have sounded fine in his homeland, but when he got to Oz he really opened up a lot – working with some of the key Australian jazz players of the period, most of whom had borrowed some of the grooviest styles from American, European, and Brazilian records of the time! The package features slices from 4 different soundtracks by Sven – all of them great, and all of them in a sublime mix of jazz, bossa nova, and some of the groovier soundtrack styles of the 60s – played by musicians who include Don Burrows on flute, John Sangster on vibes, and Col Nolan on organ – coming together in sounds that are weird, watery, but always grooving along in a gentle sort of way. Titles include "Music For Eels", "Dark World", and "Sounds Of The Deep" from Inner Space (1974); "Main Theme", "Desert", and "Peaceful Landscape" from Nature Walkabout (1965); "In The Wave", "The Lost City", and "Bush Fire" from To Ride A White Horse (1966); and "Start Growing Up Now" from The Set (1970) in both vocal and instrumental versions!

Hugo MontenegroLove Theme From The Godfather/Music From A Fistful Of Dollars & For A Few Dollars More & The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1968/1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of RCA Records gems from Hugo Montenegro – back to back on a single CD! First up is Theme From The Godfather – a sweet 70s update of the moogy groovy that Hugo Montenegro first started crafting in the 60s! The album's got both moog and Arp – the latter of which brings in more of a 70s electric vibe – and there's also some very cool sound effects on the record too, which really ups the ante for the sort of groove that Montenegro was creating! Tunes are all pretty well chosen – making for a super-dope batch of numbers that really gets past the usual – and the set includes an excellent reading of "Me & My Arrow", from Nilson's The Point; 2 versions of Nino Rota tracks from The Godfather; a nice version of Faure's "Pavane", with lots of spirally keyboards; a medley of "Baby Elephant Walk" and "Moon River"; and even a few nice originals, like "Quadimodo" and "Stutterology". On 1968's Music From A Fistful Of Dollars, Hugh Montenegro makes his way through a number of late 60s Morricone spaghetti western themes, all done with his groovier than usual twist on the material! The Montenegro touches here include some augmented rhythms – snapping the tunes along with a much modder feel at times than the original – plus a nice use of electric bass at the bottom, and some sunshine-drenched vocal passages have some great harmonies! Titles include "The Vice Of Killing", "For A Few Dollars More", "Story Of A Soldier", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "The Ecstasy Of Gold", "Sixty Seconds To What?", and "March With Hope".

Ennio MorriconeIl Pentito (180 gram silver & black vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A later score from Ennio Morricone – but an incredibly beautiful one too – penned for a mid 80s mafia film set in Sicily, but featuring some of his sweetest, most sensitive work of the time! There's a very bittersweet feel to most of the music here – a quality that's almost romantic at times, but touched with really blue notes too – as the tunes spin out in slow, thoughtful progressions that echo the darker choices and themes of the film. There's a few more upbeat tracks, and a few darker, atonal numbers – but overall most of the score is steeped in melancholy – with gentle strings and woodwinds that have plenty of trademark Morricone touches! Titles include "Il Pentito", "Messaggio", "Retata", "Momento Decisivo", "Sicilia", "Durante L'Omelia", "Confusi Ricordi", "Sicilia Dei Ricordi Lontani", and "Evento Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

A lost Morricone gem – originally written for Italian television in the 70s, but with a sublime quality that's right up there with the best of the maestro's film work from the same decade! The main theme has this beautiful feel – slowly vamping strings with a nice gentle groove, punctuated by a cool whistle that's very much in classic Morricone spirit. Other tracks continue in this lightly playful style – often using woodwinds, or a specific woodwind instrument, to create a gently percussive mood. Titles include variations on the theme, in versions titled "Dolce Mistero", "Burlesco", "Titoli", "Saltarello Della Rana", "Tema D'Amore Ripresa", and "Indagine Su Un Navigatore".

An unusual late 70s soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that maybe has a bit more instrumentation tuned to the time, but still handled with all the great Morricone sense of space and timing! There's some keyboards and riffing guitar in the mix, of a variety that might be more at home in the hands of Stelvio Cipriani – but the maestro keeps things nicely focused, and also uses some larger orchestrations too – all with that moody, open style that we love so much – kind of an updating of his late 60s love themes, really coming across beautifully with different solo instruments on many tracks. Titles include "Move", "Ricordo Del Padre", "Sull'Amaca", "Tre Anni FA Una Sera", "Presentimento Primo", "Good News", and "La Ragazza Del Padre". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Myers/Hans ZimmerHistoire D'O – Numero 2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Music Box (France), 1984. New Copy 2 CDs ... $26.99
The slinky, sexy follow-up to the original cinema version of The Story Of O – shot in the 80s, with a musical score by Stanley Myers to match the vibe of that later decade – and served up with a few contributions from a young Hanz Zimmer as well! The shift from the 70s to the 80s is also a shift in the way that erotic scoring was taking place on the European scene – more reliance than ever on keyboards, less use of sax or violin to signify moments of love, and also maybe more touches borrowed from some of the horror films of the period – which themselves were also starting to get pretty darn sexy! Myers does a great job of evoking the spirit of the original, while also moving things forward stylistically – and titles include "Married Love", "The World Of O", "Initiation Of Carole", "Triumph Of O", "Deviation", "Love In 45 Seconds", and "Statues Of The Night" – plus the vocal theme "Never Will You Know", performed by Veronique Lortal. Plus, this 2CD version adds in 26 more tracks to the original album – all additional music done for the film score, and a French version of the theme by Lortal! CD

AcanthusLe Frisson Des Vampires (transparent blood red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Finders Keepers, 1971. New Copy ... About October 15, 2020 (delayed)
A strange, eerie psychedelia and prog steeped soundtrack to the Jean Rollins French vampire film Le Frisson Des Vampires – played by the group Acanthus – a great little set of evocative, stripped down macabre instrumentals and trippy bits of dialogue! Finders Keepers describes the sound by comparing it to lynchpin combos of early prog as affected by "a 1000 year old acid infused blood transfusion", and guess what – that's perfect! Guitar melodies spun very loosely and eerily rolling along with improved bits and creepy sound sound effects – but it never veers into shlocky horror movie music, it's psych-steeped instrumental rock, played in a spooky style. The music is great, and the bits of dialogue (in English) is totally priceless! Includes Funerailles Des Vampires", "Le Frisson Des Vampires", "La Chateau", "Wedding Party (Angoisse Temporelle)", "Occupied Clock", "Who Are You?", "Blood-Cups", "Isabelles Demise", "Night Excursion", "Isa's Ceremony", "Flightless Bird", "The Shiver Of The Vampires", "Envol Vers La Folie" and more. 27 tracks in all – the entire, previously unreleased soundtrack!

Gato BarbieriLast Tango In Paris ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Sealed ... $6.99
One of the greatest moments ever from saxophonist Gato Barbieri – and that's saying a lot, given that by the time of this recording, he'd already had a great 60s run as an avant jazz musician, and started the 70s with a string of albums that criss-crossed jazz and South American musical styles! Yet Last Tango In Paris may well be Barbieri's crowning achievement – a sublime record that draws on all the richer, more emotive themes of his Latin America projects, but gives them new focus in the arrangements of Oliver Nelson – who ensures that the music is never too cheesy or overdone – quite a feat, given the sexy setting of the film! Gato draws a lot from Argentine tango, but often uses his own sax solos in place of a more familiar bandoneon – in a way that pushes the "new tango" mode of the time even farther – especially when set amidst Nelson's wonderful orchestrations. Titles include many versions of the "Last Tango" theme, plus the tracks "Girl In Black", "Jeanne", "Why Did She Choose You?", "It's Over", and "Fake Ophelia". LP, Vinyl record album

John BarryWalkabout (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy ... $26.99
A beautiful and exotic score from the great John Barry – one that never had as much circulation on record as some of his bigger hits of the time, but which is equally well deserving of praise! The music is done for Nicolas Roeg's film Walkabout – set mostly in the Australian outback – and Barry mixes these breathy orchestrations with some rootsier acoustic elements – in ways that really echo the contrast of the characters in the narrative, and remind us of the sensitivity that Barry can have at his most sophisticated moments. Three tracks differ slightly from this approach – the seven minute long fuzzy freakout "Electronic Dance", which is totally great in its own sort of way – the experimental echoey "Professional Crumble" – and the vocal number "Los Angeles", kind of a hippy dippy tune. Other titles include "The Three Of Us", "Walkabout", "The Children", "The Journey", "Stranded", and "Night In The Outback". LP, Vinyl record album

Much of the music is period-based, but still nicely jazzy and swinging – not as all out groovy as Barry's Bond work, but with some nice orchestral jazz touches that are hipper than you'd expect from Bart. Titles include "Kate's Blues", "Barney's Blues", "No More", "AT Last", "Chicken Delhi Cold", and "Serenade In Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Harry BettsFantastic Plastic Machine ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A wonderful soundtrack – written for a groovy surf film! The movie's one of many in the subgenre of "surf films in exotic locales" – and it features some wonderful music by Harry Betts! The tunes are a mixture of small combo grooving and larger groovy LA late 60s arrangements – and the whole thing has a really great sunshine pop feel. All tracks are instrumental, swirling in strings, guitars, and nice instrumental touches – and titles include "Rock Slide", "Green Grotto", "Straight Ahead", "Day Groovin", "Night Flight", and "Endless Bummer".

David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, & OthersShoner Gigolo Armer Gigolo (Just A Gigolo) ... LP
Ariola (Germany), 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A mix of sounds and styles for this film set in Weimar Berlin – with Marlene Dietrich as a madam with male gigolos – one of whom is played by David Bowie, at a time when he was famously living in West Berlin, and working with Brian Eno! The film's nothing like that at all, though – as it's a period piece, with performances by Kim Novak and David Hemmings, the latter of whom directed – and the music is an unusual mix of imagined 20s elements, but often given an odd late 70s spin. The real highlight is "Revolutionary Song" – an odd tune written by Bowie, and which features him scat singing this really compelling melody with echoes of Brecht. Marlena Dietrich also delivers one of her last recordings – a haunting take on "Just A Gigolo" – which is then oddly served up as a disco tune by The Village People at the end! The set also features a mix of other instrumentals and vocal tracks – with work by by Manhattan Transfer, Pasadena Roof Orchestra, and The Gunther Fischer Orchestra. LP, Vinyl record album

Scotti Bros, 1985. Used ... $2.99
A real mish-mash of terrible music (then again, wasn't the movie pretty terrible too?) – but the record is noteworthy for the track "Living In America", which was a bit of a comeback tune for James Brown – and not a bad little number when you think about it. Of course, the rest of the world was pretty taken by Survivor's "Eye Of The Tiger", which is about as anthemic as you can get for any 80s sountrack tune! CD

Subah Zindagi (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A classic soundtrack from Indian film composer Rahul Dev Burman – and one that reminds us just how important the voice was to the format over the years! Unlike some Bollywood soundtracks, which have long upbeat songs that are driving the dance numbers in the film – this score has a fair bit of mellower tracks, which really seem to bring out the best of the famous singers in the music – a lineup that includes Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Mohammad Rafi, and Kishore Kumar. Titles include "Dil Sajan Jalta Hai", "Pvar Hai Ik Nishan Qadmon Ka (part 1)", "Dance Music", "Lalla Lalla Lori Doodh Ki Katori", and "Suhani Chandni Raten". (Global Grooves, Soundtracks) CD

John CarpenterFog (40th Anniversary 180 gram colored vinyl pressing –with 12-page booklet) ... LP
Waxwork, 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... About November 6, 2020
Wonderful sounds from the great John Carpenter – one of those records that reminds us that his music is often just as important as the images he puts on the screen! Carpenter's music for The Fog follows nicely in his work for other films – particularly Halloween – in that it's got this slow-building style that often makes great use of keyboards – often used sparely, with a really spooky sort of energy – and even more space, and at slower speed than his other horror soundtracks! The style really fits the "fog" theme of the film! Includes bonus vinyl of the original movie cues which have never been made available on vinyl before. LP, Vinyl record album

"Halloween" is a tune that hardly needs any introduction – the start of a whole film music genre unto itself – and "Escape From New York" is a cut that's gone onto have a special life of its own, far away from the original movie!

Nicholas CarrasDoll Squad (green vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A sexy little film, with a sexy little soundtrack to match – just the right blend of funk and crime modes you'd expect for a movie that was a precursor to Charlie's Angels! The Doll Squad were a lot trashier, though – and it really shows in some of the music here, which has a great early 70s exploitation vibe at times, and some surprisingly nice jazz currents at others – much more in the vein of some hip Italian work of the period, especially with the instrumentation. Most numbers are quite short, but the set features lots of these cool cuts coming together nicely, with a bit of dialog too – and the set includes the vocal number "Song For Sabrina" – plus "Jealous Lady", "Doll Squad Theme", "Big Boom", "Double Trouble", "The Big Switch", and "Freedom Beat".

✨✧ CerroneBrigade Mondaine –Vice Squad ... LP
Malligator (France), 1978. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A rare soundtrack from the mighty Cerrone – recorded right at the height of his electro disco fame, and with a very similar groove! The film was also titled Vice Squad in the US market – and the music here definitely echoes the sleaze of its subject matter – with loads of sweet clubby lines that are heavy in the keyboard styles you'll know from "Supernature" – but maybe even leaner and meaner here – with a stripped-down punch that makes for plenty of funky disco moments! The tracks are mostly groovers, but even the few mellow moments are great – and titles include "Phonic", "Give Me Love", "Make Up", "The Loft", "Strip Tease", "Experience", and "Deauville".

Trunk (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $25.99
A really great electronic soundtrack – contemporary, but served up with a very spare, electronic feel that takes us back to some of the best horror gems of the 80s! If you're a fan of the music for Stranger Things or Good Time, you'll find plenty to love here – as Alec Cheer works in a keyboard-heavy style that's awash with waves of synth and spare layers of sound – maybe sometimes slightly warmer than the music of either of those references, but with an equally compelling sound! Titles include "Evil Ways", "The Night Belongs To Us", "Protective Spell", "Morning", "Hunters", "Kickstart", and "Confusion". LP, Vinyl record album

Giancarlo ChiaramelloQuando Gli Uomini Armarono La Clave E – Con Le Donne Fecero Din-Don ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the more obscure entries in the caveman comedy genre that cropped up briefly at the end of the 60s – a set of very groovy tunes for a movie that has the females going on a sex strike to keep the men from fighting! There's very little in the music to tie the film to Lysistrata – as the tunes are delightfully whimsical, and move through a mix of bossa-styled jazz, mod rock moments, and a few funky touches – all in that best style put forth by the Italian scene in the 60s! The score has a few standout fuzzy/funky guitar bits, and maybe best of all are the vocal numbers – sung by Gli Alluminogeni, and based around this "Troglomen" theme – which has cool chanting in a very rhythmic way. 32 tracks in all – and a number of bonus tracks too!

Stelvio CiprianiIl Fauno Di Marmo ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. Used ... $14.99
Few folks can do a sexy 70s soundtrack as great as Stelvio Cipriani – and this excellent album is definitely proof of that fact! The music is laidback, mellow, and moves with this slow-stepping approach that really grabs us right from the start – especially given the album's use of electric piano and bass over some of the sparest instrumental passages! Although the plot is relatively spooky, the music feels more like some late afternoon love fest – with all those warm, erotic tones that Cipriani does so well – perfectly produced in a 70s way that never gets too cheesy. The CD features 21 tracks, great remastering, and notes on the film in Italian and English. CD

Stelvio CiprianiPoliziotto Senza Paura ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
Cool Italian cop soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – easily one of the true masters of the genre! The music is a great mix of mellow moods and funkier moments – spare, piano or keyboard-tinged tunes, which are then offset by more driving numbers that push along with fast guitar, heavy drums, and the general sort of groove you might expect in cop show work of the 70s! Cipriani always does a good job of bringing in some lyrical, more sensitive elements to his music – things that really keep things light, while also creating a rich sense of feeling – quite a bit different than slicker US police work of the period. CD features 22 tracks in all – a nicely groovy mix of styles! CD

There's few folks we love more for a cop/crime soundtrack than the great Stelvio Cipriani – as the 70s Italian maestro always has a way of making things groove, but with these cool sophisticated touches that make his music more distinct than most! This set's clearly got an influence from American crime scores from a few years before, but Stelvio takes things in all these cool directions of his own – which include putting in a nice sense of space on the mellower groovers, shifting up some of the instrumentation from the usual, and also bringing in his great ear for a keyboard part at just the right moment!

Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Island, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – maybe in part because it was a soundtrack, as was Superfly – but also because it has this global power that makes it a defining album of the genre! Jimmy Cliff is obviously the mainman here, but there's help from other key players in the growing reggae scene – and titles include Jimmy's classic "You Can Get It If You Really Want", in two versions – plus two takes on "The Harder They Come", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "Sitting In Limbo" – plus "Sweet & Dandy" and "Pressure Drop" by The Maytals, "007" by Desmond Dekker, "Johnny Too Bad" by The Slicers, "Draw Your Brakes" by Scotty, and "Rivers Of Babylon" by The Melodians.

Robert CobertDark Shadows – Original TV Soundtrack ... LP
Philips, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
A wonderful wonderful soundtrack – recorded to accompany the strange horror/soap opera show Dark Shadows! The music is really weird – moogy at times, groovy at others – with lots of cool late 60s touches like fuzzy guitar, electric piano, and floating string and woodwind passages that have a really dark edge. Many of the tracks feature narration by stars Jonathan Frid and David Selby – creating a spooky sort of ghost story feel. And some of the even better tunes are instrumentals, with surprisingly groovy guitar in the front – creating an almost Ventures-like horror sound! Titles include "No 1 At The Blue Whale", "When I Am Dead", "Meditations", "I'll Be With You Always", "Josette's Theme", "Dark Shadows 2 Collinwood", "Shadows Of Night", "Seance", and "I Barnabas".
