Franco BixioFilm Music Of Franco Bixio (Deserto Di Fuoco/Instantanea Per Un Delitto/Diario Segreto/Il Tuo Piacere E Il Mio) ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $39.99
Four rare soundtracks from Italian composer Franco Bixio – appearing here on CD for the first time ever! First up is Deserto Di Fuoco – a score that begins with a dreamy wordless vocal theme, but then quickly moves into tenser moments – a kind of low-end, brooding approach to the music which is occasionally cut with some sweeter strings, yet still in a way that preserves the moody vibe of the other cuts! There's one "momento sexy" in the mix, but most of the tunes stay in this formation – kind of a mix of drama with slight currents of Italian warmth. Instantanea Per Un Delitto is a standout score right from the start – especially since the whole thing begins with a tune titled "I Want To Die" – a vocal number that's followed by a fair bit of other vocal tunes too – rockish numbers that almost feel like they were lifted from some Mike Curb/AIP soundtrack in the US – with titles that include "Back To My Baby", "My Sleeping Lady", "Pro9mise", "A Trip Around The World", and "Woman Pig". The soundtrack Diario Segreto Un Carcere Femminile follows – a mix of shorter tunes and warmer themes – sometimes in a lightly erotic mode, but also balanced with a bit of action too – and nice use of spare guitar and piano to evoke some nicely moody moments. There's a few tunes with fuller woodwinds and strings – a nice touch, and much more sensitive than usual for Bixio! Last up is the score for Il Tuo Piacere E'Il Mio – music that's filled with all sorts of weird touches – from spare recorder or harpsichord lines, to some offbeat churchy vocals – used on short tunes that end up with a pretty spooky vibe overall! The 2CD set features 63 tracks in all – done in the great quality we've really come to appreciate from the Quartet label. CD

Brian EnoFilm Music 1976 to 2020 ... CD
Astralwerks, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Many years back, Brian Eno gave us a record called Music For Films – a set that came out during his initial run of Ambient recordings, showing us how strong his instrumental creations could be when and if applied to a cinematic mode! The tracks there were half imagined works for film – and those of us who loved Eno were always hoping that it would lead to more prominent scoring for the electrosonic genius. Turns out, that happened anyway – as this set of 17 tracks will attest – a rising Eno role in the film soundtrack world, served up on contributions from big productions and lesser-known gems. The set features work from films that include Heat, We Are As Gods, Trainspotting, Married To The Mob, Jubilee, Top Boy, Sebastiane, Hammerhead, Rams, Lovely Bones, Francis Bacon's Arena, and Cool World – a surprisingly rich array of material!

✨✧ Henry ManciniMusic From Mr Lucky ... CD
RCA, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the early years of Henry Mancini – a hip jazzy TV score that we've loved for years! The jazzy theme to "Mr Lucky" is reason enough to buy this album – as it's got these wonderful warm washes of sound, interlayed in a way that makes you wish the track went on and on and on again – but Mancini brilliantly follows that gem up with a host of wonderful other tunes – cool numbers that move past even the familiar crime jazz that Hank had given us on Peter Gunn, into a level of instrumental sophistication that set a whole new tone for the 60s generation to come. Other tunes include "Lightly Latin", "Tipsy", "One Eyed Cat", "Chime Time", and "March Of The Cue Balls", a Mancini classic if there ever was one! CD

RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1968/1972. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
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 ... CD
Harvest/BGO (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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", "Prophesies", and "Wicca Way". (Rock, Soundtracks) CD

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo Elettronico – Cosmic Electronic Environments From An Italian Synth Music Maestro 1972 to 1983 ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from a very electric man – the mighty Piero Umiliani, an Italian composer who first rose to fame for a set of groundbreaking film scores in the 60s – then moved into even more experimental sound library work in the following decade! This set has Piero working in all sorts of cool electronic styles – never too outside or avant, but definitely in the darker side of his spectrum – although almost always with that playful sense of a tune that made his 60s music such a delight! The range of instruments varies – Umiliani clearly had a studio that was full of brand-new, top-shelf technologies – and titles are mostly from the mid 70s, with a few later cuts from 1983. Tunes include "Danza Magica", "Soundmaker Blues", "Fruitori", "Batticuore", "Sinistro Carillon", "Dolomiti", "Apocolaisse Atomica", "Description", "Lavorazione A Mare", and "Elettrone".

Kamasi WashingtonBecoming – Music From The Netflix Documentary ... CD
Young Turks, 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Really great work from saxophone genius Kamasi Washington – music that's very different than the longform sounds of his epic sets – yet very beautiful too, and clearly showing off a whole new feather in Kamasi's mighty cap! As you can tell from the title, the work is music for a documentary soundtrack – and Washington really rises to the occasion with music of majesty – all jazz throughout, but mixed with some extra strings at times too – a bit like those fantastic instrumental moments that Bill Lee did for the early films of Spike – served up here with a similar sense of pride, power, and subtle righteousness! Other players include Rickey Washington on alto and flute, Ryan Porter on trombone, Dontae Winslow on trumpet, and Cameron Graves on piano and Fender Rhodes – on titles that include "Take In The Story", "Shot Out Of A Cannon", "Song For Fraser", "Southside V1", "Detail", "Fashion Now & Then", "Connections", "Looking Forward", and "I Am Becoming".

Schwiiiiiiing! Here's a great batch of tunes pulled from porno flicks of the 70s – schlocky then, but sounding pretty darn funky to our 21st century ears! The tunes on the set are mixed with dialogue – sliding back and forth from grooves to groans, in a way that makes the CD as entertaining as one of these old skin flicks – and slightly less embarrassing to enjoy, too. The CD's got 40 tracks in all – all from the catalog of Heavy Cream Productions – and although the production style is a bit film-slanted at times, you can't knock the enjoyability of the package. Titles include "Beards", "The Stripper", "Science Comes First", "Boob Tube", "Psychedelic Orgy", "What Sign Are You?", "Romantic Overture", "A Quickie", "I Think I'm In Love", and "Afternoon Delight".

An unusual blend of classic country and original music – served up here in support of the Netflix film of the same name! We really dig the classic cuts – work that includes "Young Love" by Sonny James, "Hillbilly Boogie" by The Delmore Brothers, "The Three Bells" by The Browns, "Honeycomb" by Jimmie Rogers, "Wings Of A Dove" by Ferlin Husky, "Wishful Thinking" by Wynn Stewart, "He Says The Same Things To Me" by Skeeter Davis, and "Funny How Time Slips Away" by Billy Walker – plus a live version of "Little Bessie" by The Stanley Brothers. But the quality of the older music is matched in the new cuts "Washed In The Blood" and "Banks Of The Ohio" by Pokey LaFarge, then balanced by mellower soundtrack instrumentals from Saunder Jurrians and Danny Bensi.

One of the less-remembered records from the era of the giant rock festival – a set of tracks that were recorded during a wild cross-country hippie caravan! Although maybe not another Woodstock, the album does have some long live tracks that are really worth seeking out – in a relatively surprising blend of musicians that makes for a pretty interesting record overall! Highlights include a searing eight minute take on "Black Juju" by Alice Cooper, a ten minute medley of "How Blue Can You Get/Just A Little Love" by BB King, a twelve minute "Freakout/It Takes A Lot To Laugh" by Stoneground, a version of "Free The People" by Delaney & Bonnie, one of the rawest Doug Kershaw performances we've ever heard on "Louisiana Man/Battle Of New Orleans/Orange Blossom Special", Sal Valentino singing "Dreambo", and the Youngbloods tracks "Hippie From Olema" and "Act Naturally", both nicely tongue in cheek.

A haunting batch of commercial music from the 70s – billed in the notes to Bosworth Ensembles, which makes us almost think that the work's from the Bosworth Sound Library – even though the record was issued in the US by Folkways! Most of the music here is relatively gentle – seductive 70s themes played on piano, keyboards, guitar, and other light instrumentation – the kind of tunes that must have been beautiful slinking behind the products featured in the TV ads – which include Zenith TVs, Buick station wagons, Dannon yogurt, and Revlon perfumes! Composers are listed as T Kinsey, J Pearson, V Flick, B Ebbinghouse, and K Palmer – all names that might be Brit Easy composers – and titles include "Guitarama", "Walking On Velvet", "Theme For Two Lovers", "Pastorella", "Fleeting Clouds", "Devil's Delight", "Apollo 15", and "Slow Glow".

✨✧ Herbie HancockDeath Wish - Original Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer 70s soundtrack from Herbie Hancock! The record takes the funky style that Herbie was cutting with the Headhunters, and blends it with some more sophisticated scoring that's top in the 70s action and blacksploitation modes – perfect for the dark theme of the movie's story. There's loads of funky bits with strings gliding over the top, and some more open-ended numbers with the sort of odd instrumentation and jazzy riffing that you'd find in Herbie's wilder numbers from the time. Cuts include "Death Wish", "Paint Her Mouth", "Rich Country", "Striking Back", and "Last Stop" – and side two is the full "Suite Revenge". (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD

RCA/Music Box (France), 1972. New Copy ... $26.99 34.99
A groovy soundtrack to a film we'd love to see – an obscure thriller that starred Henry Fonda and Yul Brynner – and which, like most of the Morricone-scored films of the period, has dropped from cinematic history, even though the wonderful soundtrack lives on! The style of the music runs between the two poles of work from Morricone at the time – with some cuts that are spare, quiet, and very pretty, and others that are fuller, more turgid, and filled with the kind of jagged touches that can make his soundtracks incredibly dark. The main theme – "Il Serpente" – is offered in two great versions, one spare and pretty, the other a bit more driving, but still pretty darn groovy. Other tracks include "Canzone Lontana", "Nadine", "Orazione", "Tema Per Una Donna Sola", and "Parata Militare".

One of the greatest 70s moments from film composer John Addison – music scored for an all-star movie that was maybe a bit too all-star in the long run – but which features Addison really knocking it out of the park with the music! The vibe is more like the best 60s war dramas than you'd guess from the date – orchestrations that mix together bold passages of action with some more subtle dramatic moments – woodwinds and strings used by Addison with effortless ease, and often some nicely dark touches lurking in the deep backgrounds! Titles include "Human Roadblock", "Nijmegen Bridge", "Underground Resistance", "Before The Holocaust", "A Dutch Rhapsody", and "March Of The Paratroopers". 2CD edition – the original soundtrack album, plus a huge amount of bonus tracks – 35 more numbers from the original film recordings, wrapped up with very detailed notes as well!

The first-ever full presentation of the music for Ghoulies – the creepy 80s horror film about monsters that would come up from the toilet! Richard Band's music is surprisingly rich and full for the film – done with light orchestrations that evoke a nice sense of fantasy – floating strings and woodwinds at some points, darker and more moody elements at others – but all acting together as this very evocative sonic landscape – rescued by Band from the original musical elements, and sequenced here to finally fit the order of the film. Titles include "Jonathan Prepares", "Basement Discovery", "First Incantation", "Becky Is Leaving", "Organ Track", "The Ghoulie Attacks", and "Mr Dick's Tongue Lashing" – plus "Surrender" and "Dancing With A Monster" by Fela Johnson – both of which are more electronic and keyboard-heavy.

Really early sounds from the great John Barry – a huge amount of tracks recorded with his combo for the Drumbeat TV show in the UK! The program had a strong focus on the emerging rock and roll sounds of the late 50s – and the John Barry Seven were a perfect group to provide musical accompaniment – professional enough to handle the gig in just the right way, but youthful enough to come up with plenty of sharp-edged sounds! The instrumentation's often heavy on guitar, but features some trumpet lines from Barry too – and although the set features some instrumentals by the group, there's also a lot of vocal numbers – with singers who include Derry Hart, Adam Faith, Bob Miller, Sylvia Sands, Roy Young, Vince Eager, and others. 40 tracks in all – including "Mad Mab", "Bees Knees", "Don't Leave Me", "Slippin & Slidin", "Rockin Sandy", "Get Happy", "Italian Style", "Beatnik", "Catwalk", "I Go Ape", "Shame On You Miss Johnson", and "Buzzin".

A rare later soundtrack from Dutch composer Ruud Bos – best known for some very funky work at the start of the 70s, and still going strong here a decade later! The score's got a much more mid 70s vibe than you'd expect – like some of the best American cop show work of the early 70s, with jazzy instrumentation intertwined with larger orchestrations – handled by Nat Peck, who had a fair bit of jazz experience himself – which means that he really lets the best elements of the music come forth and blossom! A number of tracks are upbeat and quickly-grooving – and those are mixed with some shorter scene-setting moments that balance the whole thing out strongly – and make the whole package feel like a long suite of sounds, dedicated to this lost film. There's a whopping 30 tracks in all – and titles include "Longing", "Secret Affair", "At Labour", "Sugar", "Happy House", "In Love", "Romance", "Start", "Casino", "Jack's Death", and the well-titled "Sexy Music".

Dracula never sounded so funky – thanks to the mighty sounds of the Whit Boyd Combo! Boyd was a porn peddler in 60s Texas, but also cut a few great soundtracks for his smutty films – including this wonderful romp that's full of funky drums, heavy organ, off-tuned guitar, and even a bit of tenor from time to time – all with a vibe that's a bit like a Prestige Records combo being let loose to score some b-grade film for the grindhouse scene! Some tracks are short, others are nice and long – and the music is nicely rough around the edges, with occasional production touches to make things sound spooky – but a nicely strong soul jazz vibe at the core. Titles include "Chase Music For Girl In A Cave", "Music Number Five", "Dracula The Dirty Old Man Theme", "Fast Music Trailer", and "Peppy Music For A Dating Scene". CD features four more tracks "Music Number Four", "Three Minutes Of Love Music", "Six Minutes Of Music To Make Love By", and "Dracula's Close Up". CD

An overlooked score from the great Roy Budd – one that we're not sure ever made it to vinyl back in the day – and which is presented here in a nicely expanded version! The music has that tense quality that made the non-groovy cuts from Budd's Get Carter score so great – and which was followed in some of his other early 70s soundtracks – which, like the music here, really shows a maturation away from the straighter jazz of Roy's roots – but still features the occasional piano solo (including electric) to remind us that he's a performer as much as a composer. There's a darkly moody vibe to many numbers – this current of sadness that's really beautiful, and which flowers often in a subtle way – on titles that include "Change Of Plan", "The Journey Continues", "Opening", "In The Woods", "Peeping Robin", "Mingle With Me", "Swept Up In Memories", "In The Office", and "Bossa Nova".

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!

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.

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! This issue of the album features three bonus tracks not on any other reissue – and the sound quality is wonderful. CD

John ColtraneBlue World (Le Chat Dans Le Sac) ... CD
Impulse, 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A lost treasure from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – material recorded as the soundtrack for the Canadian film Le Chat Danse Le Sac – which features new recordings of material that Coltrane had done in previous years, but really updated by the fresh version of this group! Although the music was used in the film, which was an art house hit at best, it's never been issued on record before – and in fact, its existence was something of a mystery until not that long ago – quite a surprise, given that the sessions were done at Rudy Van Gelder's studio, and have a quality level that really matches the Impulse Records best by these musicians! The tunes are almost like this amazing bridge between the mid 60s Impulse years and the Coltrane sound at the start of the decade on Atlantic – as the grooves are modal, and most music is more inside than the group was hitting by 1965 – yet still burning with that searching spirit that made them so great. The lineup, of course, features John Coltrane on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – and the whole thing is an instant key addition to the catalog of this tremendous quartet. Titles include two takes on "Naima", three takes on "Village Blues", and the tracks "Like Sonny", "Traneing In", and "Blue World". (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD
