Edward ArtemievStalker/The Mirror – Music From Andre Tarkovsky's Motion Pictures ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1975/1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Sublime soundtrack music from Edward Artemiev – not a big name for film scoring on this side of the Iron Curtain, but a really well-remembered talent for his classic 70s work for the films of Andrey Tarkovsky! Side one of this album features wonderful sounds from the film Stalker – music that begins in a sweet electronic mode, but soon gets darker – a weird space that's somewhere between the German elements of Cluster and Tangerine Dream, and some of the more abstract electronics of the underground academic scene! Yet throughout it all, Artemiev has a very visual approach to his sounds – one that steps out nicely on the one track from the film The Mirror, and an extended tribute to the director too. Titles include "Exodus", "Dedication To Andrey Tarkovsky", "Meditation", "They Go Long", "Stalker", and "Train". LP, Vinyl record album

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!

Aretha FranklinSparkle – Music from the Original Motion Picture ... CD
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... $24.99
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

Earl HagenI Spy – Music From The Television Series (Warner) ... LP
Warner, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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

David Lynch & Angelo BaldamentiTwin Peaks – Season Two Music & More ... CD
Rhino, 1991. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Great music from the second season of Twin Peaks – and a continuing illustration of the power of Angelo Baldamenti's music for the show! The strength of these simple themes and tunes is clear right from the get-go – as Angelo serves things up in a mode that's subtle, but still filled with the dark mystery that made the show so great – and all these many years later, there's a surprisingly timeless feel to the sound of the work, given that Baldamenti chose to use better keyboards and piano than the usual early 90s styles – plus a fair bit of acoustic instrumentation with a jazzy undercurrent as well. The package is a bit heavier on photos than notes, so we're not sure of the exact placement of all these cuts – but we can say that the CD features 22 tracks that include "Shelly", "Love Theme Intro", "I'm Hurt Bad", "Cop Beat", "Barbershop", "Harold's Theme", and "Packard's Vibration".

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 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD features three bonus tracks from the group's initial foray into the studio for this music! (Rock, Soundtracks) CD

Francois De RoubaixDaughters Of Darkness (Les Levres Rouges) (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! There's a very intimate feel to the record – almost as if Francois is performing most of the sounds in the studio himself – balancing a guitar line with a keyboard fill, a bowed bass bit with drums, soaring strings with trumpet, and so on – occasionally hitting some funky touches that really keep things interesting – and which makes some of DeRoubaix best work on a par with the genius of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Titles include "The Countess Kiss", "Phantom Organ & Piano", "Pursuit On The Dunes Of Ostend", "Accident & Cymbalum", "Love On The Rails", "Red Lips", "Ballad In Bruges", and "The Dunes Of Ostend Flagellation". Also features two bonus tracks not used in the film – "Dracula 68 Woodstock" and "The Bruges Band". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Magne/David GilmourLa Ronde/La Chasse A L'Homme/A Coeur Joie ... CD
Music Box (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A trio of mid 60s soundtracks from Michel Magne – all on CD for the first time ever! First up is La Ronde – Roger Vadim film with his young, then-wife Jane Fonda in the lead – given a score that has many playful melodies in an older French style – maybe a bit like the music used in Monsieur Hulot's Holiday, with larger orchestrations working out some sprightly melodic moments with an old school comedic feel! La Chasse A L'Homme is much groovier overall – and features guitar mixed with jazzier instrumentation – maybe a bit like some of the key nouvelle vague soundtracks from a few years before – which is no surprise, given that the movie stars a young Jean-Paul Belmondo! A Coeur Joie is a real surprise – as next to the instrumental moments, it features two English-language vocal tracks sung by a young David Gilmour right before he joined Pink Floyd – the very groovy "Do You Want To Marry Me" and "I Must Tell You Why" – both of which could have been freakbeat classics if they were issued on singles in the UK!

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

Give this excellent soundtrack a listen – and you'll realize pretty quickly just how vital it is to the allure of the movie! Includes "Carpathian Ridge", "The Tangent Universe", "Middlesex Times", "Gretchen Ross", "Slipping Away", "Cellar Door", "Time Travel", "Ensurance Trap", "Did You Know Him? "Waltz In The 4th Dimension" and more – plus that ever-haunting cover of "Mad World" by Gary Rule. LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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". Next are two tracks from Zulu – a colonial period film that starred Michael Caine – followed by 15 more groovy instrumentals that include "Tit Willow Twist", "Hit & Miss", "Easy Beat", "Beat Girl", "The Lolly Theme", "Spinnerree", "Roman Spring Of Mrs Stone", "The Sun's Hooray", and "Saturday's Child".

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.

Even cooler is the fact that the music was written by Bill Lee and the great Stuart Scharf – and played by the pair with help from Seldon Powell on flute and Floyd Williams on percussion. The performance is part musical, part spoken – a string of passages from writers that include Richard Wright, Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, WC Handy, Julian Bond, Le Roi Jones, and others – working together beautifully in a very righteous, slightly radical theater piece.

✨✧ 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".

Jerry Butler/Jerry PetersMelinda – Original Soundtrack (with bonus track) ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About December 18, 2019
One of Jerry Butler's funkiest moments of the 70s – served up in a fantastic soundtrack co-penned and arranged by the great Jerry Peters! Peters is best known for his hip work with a variety of soul acts in the studio, but he really steps out here for the score to Melinda – a lesser-known blacksploitation film from the early 70s, but one that boasts a heck of a great soundtrack! Peters approach here is a bit more baroque than some of his contemporaries – and he uses stepping strings equally alongside funky rhythms – creating a groove that's complicated, yet still plenty darn funky – and a sound that's as soulful on the mellower tunes as it is on the standout uptempo ones. Jerry Butler sings vocals on "Speak Truth To The People", "Tank's Theme", "Love is", and "Melinda Reprise" – but the instrumental tracks are even better, and include the clavinet groover "Part III", the sitar-styled "Melinda Latino", and the cuts "Music For Tank's Boat", "The Blues (Dope Pusher's Theme)", and "I Can't Let You Go" – plus the bonus track "A Prayer".

A raunchy little soundtrack for this obscure juvenile delinquent film at the start of the 60s – done in a cool mix of modes that features plenty of rocking instrumentals, some sweet jazzy bits, and a few nice exotica tunes! For the music, it's almost as if composer Nicholas Carras was going through the trashbins at the bigger record labels – picking up the sorts of things that Liberty, Capitol, or Challenge might have left behind – and weaving them together as the perfect music for a film like this – definitely a cut above, and maybe even better than the sorts of rock music soundtracks of the time that featured bigger sorts of artists in the lineup. Most tracks are short, which makes the whole thing an even cooler pastiche – different than more formal soundtracks of the period! LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD of the movie, and a zine too!)

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
(On "rocket" red vinyl!)

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
(On yellow vinyl – plus DVD of the feature film, and a bonus zine too!)

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". LP, Vinyl record album
(On "demon" green vinyl!)

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!)
