Don EllisMusic From Other Galaxies & Planets – Featuring The Main Title Theme From Star Wars ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. Used ... $19.99
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

Aretha FranklinSparkle – Music from the Original Motion Picture ... CD
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... $13.99
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

Claude BollingBorsalino/Borsalino & Co (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Music Box (France), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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

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

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLe Temoin (Il Testimone) ... CD
Music Box (France), 1978. Used ... $18.99
A groovy French-Italian co-production from the 70s – one that's scored with a very whimsical score by Piero Piccioni! The record's got more of an Italian comedy feel than French work of the time – from a disco-inspired vocal theme at the start, to some sweet slinky numbers in the middle, and a few more playful melodies that kind of update an older Italian comedic mode! Piccioni uses a fair bit of then-contemporary instrumental elements – warmer production than before, a mix of keyboards and rhythms, and even a breathy female singer named Emelyne on a few tracks. CD features 19 tracks in all – and notes on the music and film in English and French! CD

Nino RotaProvo D'Orchestra (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CAM/Music Box (France), 1979. New Copy ... $24.99
A fantastic Fellini soundtrack from Nino Rota – one that holds on to some of the best styles that the pair created in their rich legacy for film – but which also takes the music in a great new direction too! The sound is more orchestral – as you might guess from the title – and the film features a dysfunctional orchestra stands in as a metaphor for the Italian government – an ensemble who play Rota's music in this halting style, sometimes broken up with their own comments in their inability to come together – as the record builds with fantastic readings of some themes, using the best Rota modes on woodwinds and strings. Titles include the long "Prova D'Orchestra Le Interviste" – plus "Valzerino No 72", "Attesta", "Galopp", "Risaltine Maliziose", and "I Gemelli Allo Specchio". CD features 9 more bonus tracks – a great extension of the second half of the material on the original release! CD

Philippe SardeMille Milliards De Dollars/Conte De La Folie Ordinaire/Le Crabe-Tambour ... CD
Music Box (France), 1977/1981/1982. New Copy ... $13.99
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

John BarryJohn Barry Plays 007 & Other 60s Themes For Film & Television ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 13.99
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".

✨✧ John BarryWhisperers ... CD
Ryko/United Artists, 1966. Used ... $4.99
John Barry did the score for this dark British film starring Dame Edith Evans as an elderly woman slowly succumbing to the "whispers" of old age. The music is far different than Barry's Bond work, with more of a sophisticated orchestral sound – filled with dark brooding passages, occasionally punctuated by jazzier moments. This deluxe edition features additional dialogue from the film, a nice booklet, and an enhanced CD-rom that includes a film clip! Titles include "Are You There?", "Sticks & Stones", "Nobody & Nothing", and "Three Attackers". CD

✨✧ Ed Bogas/Sonny Stitt/Merl SaundersBlack Girl – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A killer little soundtrack – and one that's quite different than the usual blacksploitation set, but still pretty funky overall! The film Black Girl was a surprisingly sensitive movie directed by Ossie Davis in the early 70s – not as much about action as it was about the everyday life, and the hopes and dreams of the lead characters – all of which made for some really well-rounded music, of the sort you'd find on some of the other great Fantasy Records soundtracks of the time, especially the classic Cornbread Earl & Me score. Ed Bogas and Ray Shanklin put together the whole thing, and the album's a mix of hip instrumental tracks with some other vocal ones – a really nice range that draws from singers like Betty Everett, Rodger Collins, and JJ Malone – and jazz players like Sonny Stitt and John Hunt (plus organ from Merl Saunders on one cut.) Titles include "BJ's Step", "Black Girl", "Sister", "Earl (Still A Pearl)", "Mothers Day Song", "Power", "Get Me To The Bridge", "Chock-lite Puddin", and "Black Girl Cue". (Soul, Soundtracks) CD

Scotti Bros, 1985. Used ... $4.99
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

Chico Buarque/Nara Leao/Maria BethaniaQuando O Carnaval Chegar ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $16.99
A fantastic soundtrack recorded in the immediate post-Tropicalia years – featuring some of the best early 70s work by Chico Buarque, Nara Leao, Maria Bethania, and others! The cover has a mad image with Buarque, Leao, and Bethania in top hats and shiny uniforms – and the music follows up with a similarly lively spirit – samba-esque, with other touches of rock and jazz production that give the work an expansive and trippy feel. Roberto Menescal handled the arrangements – and titles include "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Mais Uma Estrela" by Nara Leao, "Soneto" by Orquesta De Cordas, "Soneto" by Nara Leao, "Partido Alto" by MPB-4, "Formosa" by Nara Leao & Maria Bethania, "Baioque" by Maria Bethania, and "Cantores De Radio" by Chico, Naria, and Maria together!

Stelvio CiprianiIl Fauno Di Marmo ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. Used ... $18.99
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 CiprianiLa Notte Dell'Ultimo Giorno/Processo Per Direttissima ... CD
Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Two rare 70s gems from the great Stelvio Cipriani – back to back on a single CD! First up is La Notte Dell'Ultimo Giorno – a record that begins with some of the slinkier modes that we love in Cipriani's music, but which also gets nicely funky at points too – almost always graced by the kind of keyboard lines that make Stelvio such a standout! The keys include electric harpsichord, organ, and what sounds like some of that oddly-tuned piano that Ennio Morricone might use – flowering out in this beautifully balanced mix of modes. Processo Per Direttissima is a film about terrorism and police brutality, but one that gets this wonderfully sweet score from Cipriani – served up in flowing basslines, light percussion, gentle strings, and the kind of forward-moving elements we love so much in Stelvio's music – a quality here that sounds much more like his love or erotic scores than you'd guess from such a thriller! CD features 25 tracks in all – over 70 minutes of music. CD

Beat (Italy), 1978. Used ... $18.99
Stelvio Cipriani works some mighty romantic magic here – swirling together strings and keyboards at a level that makes the record one of his best from the time – done with those slinky, sexy touches that really helped Cipriani come into his own during the 70s! There's a few funky moments – but honestly the best bits are those tracks that kind of lazily drift along with the keyboard lines – with kind of a steam, sultry, late afternoon sort of feel – as if you're laying around waiting for a proper point to go down to a cafe for your first cocktail of the evening! CD features a total of 27 tracks – including a few vocal numbers – for a total of almost 75 minutes of music. CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
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! This issue of the album features three bonus tracks not on any other reissue – and the sound quality is wonderful. CD
