John Baker, Delia Derbyshire, & David CainBBC Radiophonic Music (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
BBC/Silva Screen (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $29.99 35.98
One of the first great recorded documents of the genius of the BBC Radiophonic Music laboratories – home to pioneering electronic talents Delia Derbyshire, John Baker, and David Cain! The trio are heard here on a set of amazing tracks recorded for BBC radio plays in the 60s, plus a bit of early TV work too – tunes that are sometimes spooky and noisy, sometimes playful, often tuneful, and always revolutionary – really groundbreaking use of electronic instrumentation in the world of popular entertainment! Baker and Derbyshire have gotten especially strong acclaim in recent years – and along with Cain, the set presents their early genius in all its glory – on tunes that are still pretty amazing after all these decades! Titles include "Milky Way", "PIGS", "The Frogs Wooing", "Boys & Girls", "Time & Tune", "Artbeat", "Sea Sports", "The Missing Jewel", "Air", "Crossbeat", and "Autumn & Winter".

Les BaxterDunwich Horror – Music Of The Devil God Cult – Strange Sounds From Dunwich ... LP
American International, 1970. Sealed ... $69.99
One of the best Les Baxter soundtracks from the 70s – a very cool, very dark set of tracks written to accompany a schlocky horror film about a coven in a seaside town! The tunes kind of take Baxter's older exotic themes and run them through some string orchestrations that have some Morricone and Italian touches – then add in some nice bounce at the bottom using a bit of electric bass, and some other nice late 60s production touches. Dark one minute, then opening up with nice grooves at the next – our favorite kind of soundtrack! Titles include "Devil Cult", "Cult Party", "Black Mass", "Sensual Hallucinations", "Strange Sleep", and "Necronomicon". LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha FranklinSparkle – Music from the Original Motion Picture ... CD
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... $19.99
A classic 70s soul soundtrack – and a dream of a combination! Curtis Mayfield wrote the soundtrack and produced the album – and the result is a killer batch of 70s soul tracks that matches Aretha's strong vocals with the hip Curtom sound of Chicago! Aretha was still doing pretty well at this point, but the album really gave her a push – and the super-hip setting let her record some of her best work of the 70s. If you own only one Aretha Franklin album from the 70s, it should probably be this one – as the mixture of soul, funk, and soundtrack grooves is great, and a refreshing change from some of the cliches that could show up on other records. Features the sublime "Something He Can Feel", plus "Loving You Baby", "Look Into Your Heart", "Sparkle", and Jump". (Soul, Soundtracks) CD

Ron Geesin & Rogers WatersMusic From The Body ... LP
Harvest (UK), 1970. Near Mint- ... $39.99
An incredibly tripped-out record – of the sort we're stunned was ever recorded for a major! The work's a side project of Roger Waters from Pink Floyd, done in collaboration with Ron Geesin for a film directed by Roy Battersby – and it's a shifting landscape of short experimental tracks, easily drifting back and forth between off-kilter instrumental numbers to sing-songy vocal ones that are far madder than Syd Barrett's work ever was. There's some nice folksy touches that sit by the tripped-out guitar work – and overall, the album's relatively introspective, especially for the setting, with less of the guitar-churning sound than you'd expect from Floyd at this point! Titles include "Body Transport", "Embryonic Womb Walk", "Give Birth To A Smile", "Chain Of Life", "Dance Of The Red Corpuscles", "Our Song", and "Bridge Passage For Three Plastic Teeth".

Earl HagenI Spy – Music From The Television Series (Warner) ... LP
Warner, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Great work from Earl Hagen – one of TV's better composers, as you'll hear from this tight set of tracks! The core mode of the music is crime jazz, but Hagen also adds in a lot of dramatic flourishes and contemplative passages – and the show's exotic locales (Mexico, Japan, Burma, Hong Kong) makes for some added musical touches that bring a groovy global aspect to the work. And given that Bill Cosby was a key member of the show, you can bet that things sound pretty darn hip! Titles include "Angel", "Hi Yo Scotty", "I Spy", "Ah So", "Away We Go To Mexico", "Made In Hong Kong", and "Fiesta Del Sol". LP, Vinyl record album

Nelson/Vampi Soul (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Great grooves from this legendary sound library combo from the Italian scene of the 70s – but a set that also features some of their more unusual, offbeat styles too! We've stocked plenty of records by I Marc 4 over the years – and have always loved them for their tight blend of jazz, funk, and instrumental soundtrack modes – but this set shows the combo at their most creative, as there's often some cool effects and unusual sounds added to the blend of their more familiar elements – so that the record seems to shift from spooky to groovy and back again with effortless ease! If you're thinking that you've already got some I Marc 4 records in your collection, then think again – as there's a lot of new sounds here to discover, pulled from their very rare limited recordings for the Nelson label in the Telecinesound Studios – titles that include "Giallo", "Tensione Ed Attesa", "Temporale", "Atmosfere Spaziali", "Tema Di Raven 1o Vers", "Thrilling Mortale", "Smookie", "Immagini", "Corsa Pericolosa", "Ossessione Omicida", and "Suspence Subacqueo".

Andrzej KorzynskiOrwo Years – Music From Movies By Celino Bleiweiss (Absage An Viktoria/Die Schwarze Muhle/Ich Will Nach Hause/Wilhelm Meisters Theatralische Sendung) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski has given us some great soundtracks over the years – including a few reissued by the legendary Finders Keepers – and here, Korzynski's catalog is further expanded by a host of soundtrack material done for German director Celino Bleiweiss! The music here was recorded at a time when Andrzej had returned to Poland, but still held onto all the musical discoveries he'd made in southern Europe – especially a great way of mixing electric elements with darker acoustic sounds – often swirling things together, so that it was a bit hard to tell which was which! A number of these tracks have a spacious keyboard sound with an undercurrent of gentle funk – a bit like some of our favorite early 70s sounds from French soundtrack composer Francois De Roubaix – while others are spookier and darker, and maybe more in the territory of the films reissued by Finders Keepers. CD features 31 tracks in all – music from the films Absage An Viktoria, Die Schwarze Muhle, Ich Will Nach Hause, and Wilhelm Meisters Theatralische Sendung. CD

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 ... $18.99
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".

Third Ear BandThird Ear Band's Music From Macbeth ... LP
EMI, 1972. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Shakespeare never sounded so compelling before – given a very cool soundtrack by the Third Ear Band, who were moved to work on this project in collaboration with director Roman Polanski! The music is fantastic away from the film – very different than some of the group's earlier records, and a lot more eerie too – as some of their usual string and reed elements almost take on an electronic vibe in the process! Most tracks are very spacious and open, with the violin and oboe crafting some especially sharp, angular sounds – almost as if the group were let loose in some sort of analogue electronic studio. Titles include "The Beach", "The Banquet", "Dagger & Death", "Bear Baiting", "Groom's Dance", "Prophetics", and "Wicca Way". (Rock, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

TullySea Of Joy – Music From The Film By Paul Witzig ... LP
Harvest (Australia), 1970. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Deeply introspective music penned for a 1970 Australian surf film – tracks that have a grounding in instrumental rock, but which also show plenty of trance-like and meditative modes as well! The titles are relatively short, but spin out with an open-ended quality that's almost like that of much longer instrumental jams – built up out of a spare and shifting assemblage of elements that include organ, flute, clarinet, piano, gong, and guitar – plus a bit of softly-sung vocals on a few numbers. There's an almost folk-like fragility to some of the tunes, but others have a more spacious feel that fits their use in a second-generation surf film nicely. Titles include "Cat Clarinet Mit Orgel", "Follow Me", "Pseudo Tragic Dramatic", "Sea Of Joy", "Thank You", "Softly Softly", "Syndrome", and "Down To The Sea". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Claude BollingBorsalino/Borsalino & Co (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Music Box (France), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99
Some of the most famous 70s soundtrack work of French jazz musician Claude Bolling – served up here in a double-length CD that's overflowing with bonus material too! First up is the original score for Borsalino – a really lovely little soundtrack for the French film that starred Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo as gangsters in the roaring 20s – set to backings by pianist Claude Bolling that's balanced nicely between the styles of his trad jazz work on record, and some of the warmer thematic modes of the French soundtrack theme at the time! Bolling's piano is always very heavy in the mix – sometimes played with the rhythmic quality of a boogie woogie musician, sometimes more spaciously soundtracked – and augmented by just the right touches of strings. The record was a big Euro hit in the 70s, and still holds up well – and this version features 36 tracks from the film – far more than the original album! Borsalino & Co is the sequel – and features a score that takes off nicely from the first – still echoes of Bolling's piano on many tracks, but also fuller, more dramatic orchestrations at times – and maybe a wider range of jazz instrumentation too. CD features 15 tracks from Borsalino & Co – plus 6 more bonus tracks that include vocal songs by Michele Bach and Le Gang, a big band version of the theme, and a "Borsalino Medley" too. CD

✨✧ Georges DelerueLe Dernier Metro/La Femme D'a Cote/Vivement Dimanche ... CD
EMI/Music Box (France), 1980/1982/1983. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
A trio of soundtracks from Georges Delerue – each with a slightly different vibe! First up is the famous Le Dernier Metro – a beautifully rich score from the great Georges Delerue – the kind of music that he virtually invented for French cinema in the 70s – balanced with this way of using full orchestrations, yet never sounding too overblown – a sense of spaciousness that's maybe inherited a bit from Morricone and the Italians, but also used with the kind of warmer, more sentimental touches that we love in French cinema! Next is La Femma D'A Cote – warmly wonderful sounds from the great Georges Delerue – one of the few composers who can make music that's sentimental, but all without ever sounding too soppy – thanks to careful use of woodwinds in space, and an ear for some nice dark currents underneath the surface! The music has a really special sort of balance – the kind that few of Delerue's contemporaries could pull off this well! Vivement Dimanche is a masterpiece of melody and drama – served up here in a nicely extended set of tracks that runs the full scope of the score for the film – numbers that are often relatively sort, but pack a hell of a moody punch in the process. 2CD set features 55 tracks in all – plus notes in English and French.

Music Box (France), 1977/1981/1982. New Copy ... $22.99
A trio of really lovely soundtracks from the great French composer Philippe Sarde – each of them a magical illustration of his wonderful talents! Mille Milliards De Dollars has a fantastic use of piano throughout – jazzy, but warm and sentimental around the edges – really the dominant instrument amidst some lighter orchestrations, and used in ways that make for some of the most tuneful, seductive moments in Sarde's legacy from the time! Conte De La Folie Ordinaire is an unusual film – one that stars the great Ben Gazzara in a set of scenes adapted from the stories of Charles Bukowski – set to music by Sarde that often evokes a sense of place in the story, with both Mexican and bluegrass elements in the songs. Last up is Le Crabe-Tambour – Sarde at his most dramatic, scoring for a military thriller – and using lots of brass in very offbeat ways! CD

One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury". Features the never-issued bonus cut – "Tema Di Susie #2 (suspance version)". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful sounds from one of the coolest Italian composers of all time – one of our go-to favorites for both soundtrack and sound library material! This set has Alessandro Alessandroni hitting some sweet 70s modes – funky at times, slinky and sexy at others – all with this fantastic ear for sound and space, with a quality level that really sets him apart – and which makes this totally obscure gem every bit as great as some of the key Italian cinematic classics from the period! Imagine – you're working in the very solitary space of a sound library, knowing that you're going to make a record that will never be for sale in the record racks – yet you completely bring your a-game to the proceedings. That's what makes Alessandroni such a giant – and we're sure you'll agree once you hear this music! The set features some great harmonica bits from Gianfranco Di Lelio, plus cool keyboards, guitar, and titles that include "My Sitar", "Seven Steps", "A Day In The Sun", "Oceano", "Everest", "Beach Party", "Summer Breeze", "Desert Inn", and "Love On The Sand".

Edwin Astley/Tony CrombieInternational Detective/Man From Interpol ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, but also sounding pretty darn great on the earlier program International Detective! The feel here is similar to some of Astley's better-known work – a more dramatic take on the crime jazz used on American TV in the late 50s – one that retains much of the instrumental elements of the sound, especially the well-placed use of saxes – but which also uses larger orchestrations to flesh out the music nicely, creating a stronger, more cinematic feel. The set features a total of 21 tracks from this short-lived show – and titles include "International Detective", "Murder Strip", "Theme For Larceny", "Night Patrol", "The Badge", "Manhunt", "Shock Tactics", "Murder Chase", and "Concerto In Law". Next is Man From Interpol – one of the best spy soundtracks we've ever heard – and one of the only scores we've ever seen from Brit jazz drummer Tony Crombie! The work was done a few years before Barry's famous Bond scores – but it's got a very similar feel, with lots of driving themes that make the best use of brazen horns, fast jazz, and beat-styled rhythms that crackle throughout the set. Most titles are pretty short, but really great – and nearly all of them feature some extremely strong jazz musicianship, in the manner of that used on the best American soundtracks by Mancini at the time! Titles include "Panic Station", "Interpol Cha Cha Cha", "Interpol Chase", "Samba De Janeiro", and "Blues Macabre". CD

A fantastic Luis Bacalov score for one of the classic films to feature the duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – music that matches the wicked blend of drama and humor that always made their movies so great! The set begins with a great English-language theme – the very catchy "Can Be Done", sung by Rocky Roberts with this raspy vocal that's completely charming – then the music moves into instrumental territory that's awash in the mix of tension and warmth that really could suit a narrative like this so well – with a bit of harmonica from Franco De Gemini, amidst this sweet flow of woodwinds and electric instrumentation, all balanced with a beautiful sense of color and tone. In addition to "Can Be Done", other titles include "Si Puo Fare Amigo", "Guai In Vista", "Amore Nel West", "Buffo Inseguimento", "Festa Al Villaggio", "Valzer Al Saloon", "Il Villaggio All'Alba", and "Pianino Pianino".

United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Burt Bacharach and Hal David's sole entry into the musical genre – a weird little musical that's based on the film The Apartment! The record's a lot less "Broadway" than you might think – and often handled with the same sly syncopated style of Bacharach's regular pop work – particularly that of the later A&M years. And even if you're not the sort to go for the usual sort of musical, this one's filled with some really great little tunes that stand with some of Burt's best later work – and which are almost even more interesting, given some of the themes that get explored! Musical direction is by Harold Wheeler, and Jerry Orbach's one of the key vocalists of the set! Titles include "Upstairs", "Knowing When To Leave", "She Likes Basketball", "Half As Big As Life", "Our Little Secret", "Christmas Day", "Grapes Of Roth", and "Wanting Things". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent collection of work from the great John Barry – one that focuses on his famous contributions for the James Bond films – but also includes other soundtrack and instrumental material as well! The set begins with the John Barry Plays 007 record – a brilliant album that not only features some instrumental soundtrack themes, but also includes some great mod Barry instrumentals from the 60s – kind of a nice link to his sophisticated film music, and some of his smaller combo work! Titles include "Kinky", "Fancy Dance", "007", "From Russia With Love", "Big Shield", "Aliki", "Monkey Feathers", and "The London Theme". Next are two tracks from Elizabeth Taylor In London – "Lovers & Browning", with a recitation by Taylor – plus the jazzy instrumental "The London Waltz".

The whole thing's pretty darn great – upbeat and melodic, but never in a way that's just throwaway repetitions of a single theme – and the 24 track CD marks the first-ever issue of the music, apart from an earlier 45rpm single that only featured two tunes!

It's unfortunate that the package doesn't list the players in the ensemble – but we're certain that we hear Kippie Moketsi on sax, and most of the musical backings have a feel that reminds us a lot of early work by The Blue Notes, or Hugh Masekela. Features the instrumental groover "Kwela Kong", plus "In The Queue", "Death Song", "Damn Him", "Sad Times, Bad Times", and "The Earth Turns Over". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original South African pressing!)

✨✧ Simon BoswellSanta Sangre ... CD
Rustblade, 1989. New Copy ... $22.99
Director Alexander Jodorowsky has done music for his own films in the past – but for the well-circulated Santa Sangre, he turned to Simon Boswell – who does a perfect job of expanding on the sorts of musical ideas we might have expected from the master! Given the film's setting, there's a variety of older Mexican modes at play, mixed with some late 80s cinematic styles from Boswell – but all with that haunting, refracted sense of reality that Jodorowsky brings to his films. Titles include "Triste", "Alma", "Carnival Violin", "Fin Del Mundo", "Grave Business", "Acid Revenge", and "Church Tattoo". CD

Sandro BrugnoliniSuperground (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great sound library albums of the time, the music is way more than conventional – as guitar, organ, bass, and drums are arranged, recorded, and produced in very unusual ways – with a really open ear towards the fuller, larger sound – which includes great effects and other elements along the way! The whole thing's very groovy – kind of mid 60s Italian mod soundtrack styles meeting the psychedelic generation – and titles include "Kissing", "Villa Polanski", "Sharon Tate", "Hip Now", "Lovable", "Petting", "Under Funeral", and "Malattia".

✨✧ Billy ButlerBilly Butler Plays Via Galactica ... CD
Kilmarnock, 1973. Used ... $6.99
One of the most obscure albums from jazz guitarist Billy Butler – the musician who first rose to fame in the gritty R&B work of organist Bill Doggett, then went onto cut some great funky albums for Prestige Records at the end of the 60s! This set is a lot more unusual than any of those records, though – as it features music from legendary soundtrack composer Galt MacDermot, who also produced the session for his own tiny label! Billy's style here is a bit different than some of his jazz work – more of a focus on chromes and tones, with some wah wah moments that are especially nice – guitar lines that snake around these laidback grooves from a sweet small combo that features drums by Bernard Purdie, bass by Wilbur Bascomb, and piano by Galt himself! Things get nice and spacey at all the best moments – and tracks include "Hush", "Life Wins", "400 Girls Ago", and "Other Side of the Sky". (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD

Nicholas CarrasMissle To The Moon (red vinyl pressing – with poster) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A schlocky film, but one with a great soundtrack – thanks to the low budget genius of composer Nicholas Carras! The music is surprisingly filled with rich elements – light strings at some points, rumbling percussion, vibes, and what seems to be some electronics – but which is really just an electric violin, run through a set of effects! The result is great, and the music has far more drama than you might expect away from the screen – maybe even more so, as it stands here as a top-rate sonic adventure, whereas the film might not make such a claim! Titles include "Rock Man Rock", "In The Caves", "Minds Over Men", "Sweethearts On Parade", "Do Or Die", "Leatha Level", and "Spider Monster". LP, Vinyl record album

Nicholas CarrasMr Peters' Pets (yellow vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
A very cool soundtrack for a very weird movie – an early 60s nudie film, but one that's a fair bit tamer and sweeter than material from later in the decade! The focus here is on the music – which is surprisingly well-done, and mixes jazz with exotic currents – often with a lot more thoughtfulness than you might expect, at a level that puts some of the best tracks here right up there with the best early 60s Italian noir jazz classics. Nicholas Carras wrote and conducted – but there's a tenorist on the album that really makes the whole thing great, someone who can play with the depth of Plas Johnson at his best. Titles include the eleven-minute "A Happy Turtle" – plus "Jungle Duck", "Three Sporty Ladies", "Petey's Sweeties", "The Happy Animal", "Animal Ambrosia", and "My Little Shasta". LP, Vinyl record album

Nicholas CarrasShe Demons (green vinyl pressing – with poster) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Those She Demons get a pretty great soundtrack here – music that's way higher-end than you might guess from the image on the cover! Nicholas Carras was a real master of doing a lot with a little – and that's definitely the case here, as Carras, who brings a surprisingly strong palette of tones to his music here – using the orchestrations in ways that are quite vivid, almost with the quality of an old blood and sandals soundtrack, but maybe a bit more sci-fi overall – thanks to some occasional strange tunings! The LP also furthers the sonic spectrum by adding in a few snippets of dialog – which illuminates the narrative pace of the music, as it moves through tracks that include "Dead Body", "Snake In The Jungle", "Hiding", "Mona Enters", "Torture", and "Nazi's In Pursuit".

Alec CheerNight Kaleidoscope ... LP
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

Henning ChristiansenDen Rode Skov (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Penultimate Press (Sweden), 1986. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99
A wild mix of electric and acoustic sounds from Henning Christiansen – done as a soundtrack for a film that's represented with images inside the cover – images that make the movie look as wild as the music on the record! Sounds come from a variety of sources – glass bowls, tubes, piano, baritone horn, synthesizer, and many voices – but all often abstracted by the production, and taken into territory where even the more familiar moments get completely changed up – with a disorienting vibe that's almost an 80s evolution of earlier electro-acoustic modes. Titles include "The Mirror", "The Red Door", "Wolf Song", "Durand's Flute", "The End", "Landscape With Wolves Bed", and "The Blue Room". LP, Vinyl record album
(Pressed on red vinyl – with a nice booklet of images inside the gatefold cover!)

Stelvio CiprianiBersaglio Altezza Uomo – Titoli/Caccia Mortale ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
Always-great 70s music from Stelvio Cipriani – the Italian soundtrack maestro who got his start a bit later than some of his contemporaries, but followed through with a range of amazing sounds in the decade! This single brings together two of the best tracks from the film Bersaglio Altezza Uomo – great late 70s funk from Cipriani, with lots of riffing guitar and moogy keyboards on the title – which has a way of sounding spacey, yet still keeping in the groove! "Caccia Mortale" has almost a clubby vibe at the start – strong bassline and tight snare – but the keyboards get all moogy again, and really add a lot of rich energy to the tune – a great extension of the 70s keyboard modes that made Cipriani one of the soundtrack giants of the decade!

The cover's black and white, but the music is very colorful – sweet 70s sounds in the best style that we love from Stelvio Cipriani – which includes some especially great use of keyboards and piano! Many of these tracks have that mellow funk mode that really set Cipriani apart from the rest of the 70s Italian scene – tracks that can move slow, yet still have a nice punch – thanks to great use of electric basslines, and just the right space on the keyboards! The CD is done in the usual super-high quality that we love from Chris Soundtrack Corner – with excellent sound, great packaging, and a total of 21 tracks from the original score. CD

Stelvio CiprianiEcologia Del Delitto (Bay Of Blood) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the coolest 70s soundtracks from the great Stelvio Cipriani – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The music here was scored for a Mario Bava horror film, but it often has a quality that's more lean and lovely overall – that current of sex that we always love in Ciprani's best work, and which made him a key force for transforming the Italian bossa and jazz soundtrack style of the 60s into something completely new for the 70s! There's a lot of sweet keyboards in the music – as you'd expect from Stelvio – but there's also some cool rootsy percussion, which creates a nice juxtaposition between acoustic and electric, especially as things get a bit spookier near the end. Titles include "Ultimo Atto", "Solitudine Di Simone", "Teenagers Cha Cha Cha", "Due Amanti", "Evelyn Theme", "Shake Giradischi", and "Un Cadavere Nel Lago". CD features 31 tracks in all – including 11 never-issued bonus tracks! CD

Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
We love Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani for his cop, crime, and erotic soundtracks of the 70s – and he sounds equally great here in the setting of a rare sound library album from the same time! The album's got no proper title or cover, but it's a wonderfully rich batch of music that's especially strong in the slinky/sexy Cipriani mode – with great keyboards and woodwinds carving out some themes so strong, you'd swear you heard them in a European film of the time! Things never get too funky, but they're also never sleepy at all either – and titles include "Hippy Love", "Fantasma Spiritoso", "Orizzonti Fatati", "Danza Degli Gnomi", "Orchidea Nello Spazio", "Incontro Di Fate", and "Rimani Amore".

✨✧ Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come ... CD
Island, 1972. Used ... $3.99
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. Sealed ... $14.99
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".
