John AddisonTom Jones ... LP
United Artists, 1963. Sealed ... $4.99
A period score, but one with plenty of groovy touches – a masterpiece of 60s film scoring from the great John Addison! Addison's music for the famous Tony Richardson version of Tom Jones is every bit as playful as the images on the screen – with only marginal aesthetics of the period of the story, and instead lots of romping melodies, carried out on horn parts, percussive passages, and even some cool harpsichord bits. Most of the tunes move quite quickly – as does the action on screen – and titles include "Sylvan Misadventures", "Ladies Are Irresistible", "Love Theme From Tom Jones", "Wine & Women", "If He Swing By The String", and "The Squire Steps In".

Angelo BadalamentiBlue Velvet ... CD
Varese, 1986. Used ... $6.99
A wonderfully creepy soundtrack – and one that would provide an important preface to the huge musical legacy that Angelo Baldamenti would give David Lynch for Twin Peaks! This soundtrack features half of Baldamenti's eerie, airy sounds – and half of the kind of old school numbers that gave the narrative such an out of time sort of vibe – and which we're happy they were able to include. Baldamenti titles include "Night Streets/Sandy & Jeffrey", "Frank", "Jeffrey's Dark Sid", "Mysteries Of Love", "Going Down To Lincoln/Sound Effects Suite", and "Frank Returns". Other titles include the Julee Cruise vocal version of "Mysteries Of Love" – plus "Honky Tonk" by Bill Doggett, Love Letters" by Ketty Lester, and In Dreams" by Roy Orbison. CD

Nicholas CarrasDate Bait (red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD & zine) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1960. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A great little soundtrack from trash maestro Nicholas Carras – not one of the bigger names in mainstream cinema scoring at the start of the 60s – but in a way that really lets him take off and get creative with a record like this! The album's got a leadoff rock tune, some jazzier charts – ala Elmer Bernstein – and a mix of dramatic orchestrations with moodier, mellower passages – almost currents of exotica at times, all put together to create more than enough drama away from the images on the screen! Titles include "Teen Bleus", "Vegas Express", "Jazz Chase", "Fight", "7D", "Lover's Reunion", "High Spot", "Bluesy Mysterio", and "Gang Stalks Rick". LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo Maria CordioAbsurd (aka Rosso Sangue) ... LP
Death Waltz, 1981. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Spacey electronic sounds from Carlo Maria Cordio – created for an early 80s slasher from Joe D'Amato, and served up with some occasional warmer touches you might not expect! Most of the tracks have that post-Carpenter use of keyboards in very spare, stark ways – often tuned weirdly, so that there's an edge to even very simple passages of notes – and an undercurrent of bassier elements that seems to turn the "brooding" quality of the set up to 11! Yet there's also some moments that have a bit more piano – still in a slightly creepy way, but almost more human – and these cuts flesh out the overall soundtrack in a really nice way – maybe giving the record a greater musical depth than just the usual slasher electronics.

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelisL'Ultimo Squalo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Beat (Italy), 1981. New Copy ... $28.99
A nice little shark-themed soundtrack, but one that comes across with a vibe that's quite different than any of the music used for Jaws – partly because there's a number of vocal tunes in the mix! The set features three standout songs – "Hollywood Big Time" and "You've Changed The World For Me", sung by Yvonne Wilkins – and "Ballad", which is sung by composer Maurizio De Angelis himself – which are then mixed with instrumental numbers that are electric and keyboard-heavy, maybe more in line with Italian slasher/horror work of the period than you might expect! The colder electronics must have given the watery scenes a really great vibe on the screen – and the package features great sound throughout, and a mighty nice graphic appeal. LP, Vinyl record album

Pino DonaggioDon Camillo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1984. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
A remake of the earlier Don Camillo film from the 50s – done here with music that's got an even more sprightly feel! You might know Pino Donaggio from darker, more serious soundtracks – but here, he uses a mix of keyboards and woodwinds to craft lots of groovy tunes that are in the best spirit of the 80s comedic Italian soundtrack modes! Given that Terence Hill was the lead, we can bet that there's a lot of goofy action on screen – set to tunes that include "Ring The Bells", "Verso Pomponesco", "Sfida A Carte", "I'm A Fool", "Don Camillo Parla Con Il Signore", and "Nella Chiesa".

Fabio FrizziShark Rosso Nell'Oceano ... LP
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Long before the Sharknado phenomenon hit the small screen, this sweet Italian film came along to woo the world with its wonderfully cheesy representation of aquatic terror! The 1984 date will give you a good idea of what to expect on the screen – and the music by Fabio Frizzi very much follows suit – heavily electric, with lots of keyboard and guitar lines that are similar to his horror and slasher material of the time – but maybe given a slightly more redemptive vibe, to focus on some of the more heroic moments in the narrative! The whole thing's got a sound that's every bit as delightful as the image on the cover – and the LP features a total of 15 tracks from the film. LP, Vinyl record album

Beat (Italy), 1980/1981. New Copy 3CD ... $39.99
Three Italian horror classics – packaged here in a single set! First up is Fabio Frizzi's score for Nella Citta Dei Morti Viventi/City Of The Living Dead – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was one of the true masters of Italian horror! The sounds here are a mix of electric and acoustic elements – but the latter are often played in offbeat ways that they really sound electric – making for a moody mix of music that goes way beyond the usual spare slasher keyboards! A few numbers use wordless vocals, while others have nicely stepping strings – and a beefier bassline comes into play on a few standout funk tracks as well. Titles include "Toward Dawn", "Fatti Misteriosi", "Apoteosi Del Mistero", "Occhi Di Brace", and "Verso L'Alba". Next is Frizzi's Beyond/E Tu Vivrai Nel Terrore L'Aldila – a very spooky soundtrack – and one that stands out as one of the best-remembered from this important second generation of Italian horror! The record's got less of the atonal orchestrations and funk/thriller modes of a few years before – and moves into the spare, eerie quality that John Carpenter helped usher in – with lots of crashing piano lines, atonal guitar parts, and weird descending chords that feel like they're going to suck you into the deep! There's some very nice and sparing use of synthesizer within the score – just the right bit to add a creepy edge, but maybe not as much as on other synth-heavy soundtracks from the time – and titles include "Voci Dal Nulla", "Oltre La Soglia", "Suono Aperto", "Verso L'Ignoto", and "Giro Di Blues". Walter Rizzati's score for Quella Villa Accanto Al Cimitero/House By The Cemetery has lots of keyboards – in a spare, spooky soundtrack from the early 80s Italian horror scene – a blood-dripping masterpiece from director Lucio Fulcio! Walter Rizzati's music here is heavy on the kinds of electric touches you'd hear from both Goblin or John Carpenter – and often paced at a level that's somewhere between the pair – not as jamming as Goblin, but a bit fuzzier than Carpenter – a blend that makes for some really wonderful numbers that are plenty creepy here on their own – even away from the images on the screen! There's plenty of great bits that creep up on you slowly – and others that jump mercilessly from dark corners – on titles that include "Quella Villa", "I Remember", "Incontro", "Blonk Monster", "Verso Il Terrore", "Voci Dal Terrore", "Tema Bambino", and "Chi Sta Arrivando".

Jerry GoldsmithComa ... LP
MGM, 1977. Sealed ... $9.99
A creepy Michael Crichton-directed soundtrack from the 70s! Jerry Goldsmith's excellent score for Coma is done with a moody mix of orchestrations that really underlies the eerie medical themes of the film! The instrumentation is mostly acoustic, but resonates with some nice dreamy 70s touches that come off great – a few sexy slinky moments matches with many more darker ones – sometimes conducted with a weird "watery" sort of quality to the woodwinds that's particularly great! Titles include "Study In Anatomy", "Disco Strut", "Free Ride", "The Long View", "Lucky Patient", "Chance Encounter", "OR 8", and "Love Theme From Coma", in both mellow and disco versions!

David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack (brown colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy ... $23.99
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

Seu JorgeLife Aquatic Studio Sessions ... CD
Hollywood, 2004. Used ... $6.99
Tremendously beautiful work from one of our favorite-ever artists – performing here in a genre unto itself! We've always loved Seu Jorge's own work – the funky samba tunes and mellower guitar work that have made him one of the most exciting talents from Brazil in recent years – but his performance in Wes Anderson's film The Life Aquatic opened up a whole new side of his talents, an ability to perform in a solo acoustic setting that's even more stripped down than the barest work on his album Cru! In the film, Jorge performs a series of David Bowie tunes translated into Portugese – sung as if they're folksy ballads penned by the singer himself, and done with loads of jazzy inflections that really transform the songs from their original recordings. And while David Bowie doesn't seem too hot on the idea himself (at least according to his "damning with faint praise" quote in the notes), we're really stunned at how beautiful this work is – not a gimmick at all, but really personal, honest interpretations of the tunes that make them Jorge's own through his unique performance. The CD brings together 14 tracks from sessions recorded for the film – many of which were never presented in their entirety on screen, and which were not included at all on the official soundtrack for the movie – which only had 4 Seu Jorge songs in all. Really great stuff throughout – with titles that include "Life On Mars?", "Queen Bitch", "Five Years", "Suffragette City", "When I Live My Dream", "Quicksand", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Changes", and the original "Team Zissou".

Johnny Keating/Carmen McRaeHotel ... LP
Warner, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Jazzy Johnny Keating, we sure love your 60s work – and although most of it was penned in the UK, this album marks one of your fab efforts for the US market! Keating's in fine fine form for the record – using more strings than usual, but still hitting some sophisticated arrangements that showcase his odd talent for scoring horns, flair for unusual instrumentation, and classy sense of a 60s groove. Carmen McRae sings on the tunes "This Year" and "Hotel" – but the numbers we really love are the instrumentals that Keating pens with cascading strings and a syncopated undercurrent, the kind of tunes that make us love a good 60s film, no matter what's on the screen! Titles include "Elevator", "Key Case", "Bourbon Street", "Duke & Dutchess", "Jeanne & Pete", and "End Title". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel MagneFantomas ... LP
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About April 24, 2020
Excellent French crime soundtracks from the 60s! Fantomas was this creepy blue-faced master criminal – depicted in 3 French films at the time: Fantomas, Fantomas Se Dechaine, and Fantomas Contre Scotland Yard. The films have disappeared a bit from film culture – but the soundtracks seem to get more and more notoriety over the years, thanks to the current revival in lost groovy b-grade scores! Michel Magne scored all three films – and titles include "Fantomas Se dechaine", "Une DS Dans Le Ciel", "Theme De Fantomas", "Le Lit", "Operation Artaban", "Ma Chere Helene", "L'Ultime Evasion", and "Fantomas S'Echappe". This extremely well-done package features 27 tracks from all 3 films, plus notes in French and English, and photos of the guy – so that you can see how crazy he looks! LP, Vinyl record album

Mandarian GateIt's A Revolution Mother (green vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Freaked out sounds from a movie that offers up a look at the struggles of youth at the end of the 60s – a movie that was recorded "on the scene where the action is – presenting 500,000 young Americans doing their own thing!" The sound of the whole thing is pretty darn great – with a newscaster-style announcer, rapping with a bit of hip inflections – while the music moves between straighter rock, groovy instrumentals, and sound effects that really capture the "on the scene" quality of the whole thing! There's other dialogue from subjects presented on screen – and the whole thing is somewhere between a standard biker soundtrack of the time, and more of a spoken word concept album.

Mandrill/George Benson/Michael MasserGreatest – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Arista, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
A great little album, put together to accompany one of Muhammad Ali's finest moments on the big screen – in a blend of music that's way deeper than the usual sounds you'd hear ringside! Michael Masser helmed the set – produced and wrote most of the material – but also with key contributions from George Benson, whose vocals grace some of the sweeter songs on the album – plus Mandrill, who help with some of the more hard-driving funky cuts! The set features the extended clubby groover "Ali Bombaye" – an almost Afro Funk-ish tune, performed by Mandrill – and other cuts include the mellower "I Always Knew I Had It In Me" and "The Greatest Love Of All", both sung by George Benson, plus "Ali's Theme", which is pretty nice.

Toshiro MayuzumiBeast Must Die EP ... 7-inch
Super Fuji Discs (Japan), 1959. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
A tense crime soundtrack from Japan – served up in a host of shorter tracks with a really evocative feel! There's a definite jazz bent to some of the music, but given the brevity of the tunes, most numbers don't have standout solos – just strong use of key sonic elements in a really moody, striking sort of way! A few numbers are more song-based – a bit like some of the best American crime jazz of the late 50s – and these tracks burst out nicely to unify the shorter numbers. The whole thing's a wonderful pastiche of short melodies, instrumental solos, and dynamic rhythms – almost as sonically evocative as the images on the screen for which it was penned! Titles include "Title Back", "Opening Theme", "The Beast Must Die Blues", "The Beast Must Die Mambo", "Track No 19", and "Track No 24". (Funky 45's, Soundtracks) 7-inch, Vinyl record

Graeme Miller & Steve ShillMoomins – Winter Wunderland Edition ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $24.99
The Moomins comics have delighted the world for generations – but fewer folks have seen the early 80s Moomins TV show – which is a masterpiece of felt-based, stop-motion animation! And while the images on the screen are amazing, the music for the program is equally great – spare, slow electronic numbers that have a beautifully playful vibe, but something of a dark edge too – maybe much more in the mode of more whimsical underground electronic work from the early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the show! The program was animated in Poland, and some of these tunes have a style that's similar to the coolest Polish electronic sound library material we've stocked over the years – although the musicians themselves were actually part of the post punk scene in Leeds. Titles include "Creepers", "Piano Waltz", "Leaving Moomin Valley", "Hobgoblin's Hat", "Traveling Theme", "Midwinter Rites", "Woodland Band", and "Comet Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno NicolaiDefense De Savoir ... LP
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A cool little soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – penned for a French film instead of an Italian movie – and with a sound that's a bit different than usual! Nicolai makes nice use of some sweeter themes here – a hint of the modes you might find in Michel Legrand or Francis Lai in the 70s – which lightens things up a bit at the start, before some darker, moodier moments creep into the mix – underscoring the film with some more traditional Giallo elements – those tense, spine-tingling styles that Bruno developed with his frequent partner, Ennio Morricone. There's some isolated piano and guitar lines that have a stark, scraping sort of feel – used to great effect on some of the more upbeat numbers – and a few standout bits have electric bass kind of rumbling up from the bottom, which creates a nice sense of urgency.

Mindblowing work from Nora Orlandi – one of the few major female film composers on the Italian scene, and a talent that we always rank right up there with the male greats of the golden days! This set has a real Morricone-like balance of darkness and light – although the style is different than Morricone's, with maybe a more open ear for variance across the tracks in the set – even though there's a strongly unified feel to the whole thing – this beautiful journey in sound that begins with the first vocal track, ends with the last one – and moves nicely through a mix of mod groovers, creepier numbers, and both jazzy and avant moments – all arranged and conducted by Robby Poitevin, with lead piano by Nora herself!

Riz Ortolani is best known for his big scores of the 60s – but here, the maestro turns in two early 80s soundtracks – one sci-fi, one horror – both with a very distinct vibe! First up is I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072, a soundtrack that has some "future" elements in its use of 80s keyboards, but which also balances things with warmer currents – with a result that's almost like the way that the sound library scene was changing right at the start of the 80s – particularly in the way that KPM or DeWolfe were introducing electric elements amidst more familiar instrumentation. In other words, the set's not a straight keyboard/guitar score, as in the Goblin generation – but certainly nods to that shift. La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco is much more varied – a short score, but with tunes that move between disco groovers, to creepy lullabies, to some very dark-toned moments – all in a relatively short space! 2CD set features 23 tracks in all – including two bonus tracks from the 45rpm single for I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072.

Deadlier than Dracula – and a lot funkier too!

The set's got a few vocal numbers, sung by 21st Century Ltd and The Hues Corporation, but it's the instrumentals that really steal the show here – and there's plenty of great ones here that rank with the best blacksploitation work of the decade – hard and funky groovers that have kept this one grooving in the crates for many many years.

One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites – with 28 tracks in all, including some great alternate takes! CD

Funky sounds and offbeat grooves from an obscure French adult film of the late 60s – directed by Jean Rollin under a fake name, and scored by Pierre Raph with the same sort of charm as his work for Requiem For A Vampire! This EP features a number of different styles of sounds from the film – the very funky "Gilda & The Gunshots", with really great bass and drums; the slow-stepping jazz tune "Jewel Thieves", which almost feels like early 60s Italian cinema jazz; and the more lively "Schoolgirl Hitchikers", which has this innocent jazzy flute line that must have been a real contrast to the sex on the screen! There's also "An Intimate Relationship" – which has a sexy spoken part in English – and the hippy/trippy guitar/flute theme "Jeunes Filles Impudiques", with a few sex sounds in the background!

Nelson RiddleLolita ... LP
MGM, Late 50s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A very groovy little soundtrack for this original film version of Lolita – directed by Stanley Kubrick with a screeplay by Nabokov himself. The album sports the famous "Lolita Theme", with a weird vocal part that goes "nya nya", and which became something of a minor instrumental hit at the time. About a third of the album is variations on that theme, and the rest of the album features darker tunes that get at the inherent sadness of the movie – standing in stark contrast next to the sillier theme numbers. Tracks include "Love Theme From Lolita", "Two Beat Society", "Thoughts Of Lolita", "School Dance", "Quilty's Theme", and "Lolita Ya Ya". LP, Vinyl record album

Leonard RosenmanBeneath The Planet Of The Apes ... LP
Bell/Amos, Early 70s. Sealed ... $38.99
Totally excellent – and probably the best of the Planet Of The Apes soundtracks! The record features lots of snippets of dialogue from the film – including Cornelius telling the creed of the fate of man, General Ursus addressing Ape City, and the chilling Mass Of The Holy Bomb. The main score has some great work by Leonard Roseman, in kind of an off-kilter style with lots of atonal string passages – but it also features a few tasty funky cuts. The best of these is the "March Of The Apes", a great little funky 70s soundtrack number, and there's also a weird funky passage at the end of the "mass", with voices chanting in a hippy dippy kind of way! A great relic of a wild weird film, and one we don't see often! LP, Vinyl record album

SandalsEndless Summer – Original Soundtrack ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $39.99
A groovy soundtrack to this hip surf film directed by Bruce Brown – filled with great little instrumentals that go way past the obvious! Brown had previously used jazz players for some of his films – including Bud Shank, who cut some great stuff for earlier soundtracks – but this set's got him working with The Sandals, a younger guitar-driven group with a cool style of scoring – partly surf instrumentals, but partly mod and groovy too! The Sandals move way past the stock surf riffs of chart surf groups – and they really do a great job with the changing moods and scenes of the film – fitting the many scenes of surfing on the screen. Titles include "Jet Black", "TR 6", "Scrambler", "6 Pak", "Driftin", "Good Greeves", and "Decoy". LP, Vinyl record album

Guy SkornikTusk ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
Really beautiful electronics from the enigmatic Guy Skornik – an artist that we mostly know for his quirky concept record Pour Pauwels, but who sounds here like some of the best electronicians of the German scene of the 70s! All tracks are long and spun out – electronic, but with acoustic elements in the mix – maybe in a mode that's similar to the 70s soundtrack creations of Popol Vuh, Tangerine Dream, or Vangelis – but darker, too – most likely because the music was composed for an obscure film by Alexander Jodorowsky! Yet the music here hardly needs images on a screen – as Skornik's created these wonderfully evocative passages, created with some help from Steve Hillage and members of Cossi Anatz. Titles include "Elise & Tusk Reunited", "Poo Lorn 1", "Elise Liberates Tusk", "Poo Lorn 2", "Goodnight Ram Baba", "Elise On The Run", and "Crossing The River".

MCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $12.99
A great soundtrack moment for Tangerine Dream – and one of their darkest, too! Bill Friedkin's films are always pretty darn spooky – but the music of the group definitely adds a lot here – bringing in these coldly hypnotic passages that really work wonders with the images on the screen – and, in a way, also help Tangerine Dream compress their often longform electronic musings into more of an "essence" by focusing on scene-based compositions! And even without the film, the album still really stands strongly on its own – a great maturation moment for Tangerine Dream, but one that still has all the edge and darkness of their best early recordings too. Titles include "Rain Forest", "The Call", "Creation", "Vengeance", "Search", and "Grind". (Rock, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Cinewax/Light In The Attic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
The lovely and late Edie Sedgwick is the cover draw on the record and movie – but the music within is maybe an even more interesting blend of sounds, and very different than what you might expect to come from the famous star of Andy Warhol's Factory scene! Some of the music here is by Gino Piserchio – and is spare, electronic material – of the creepy style that you'd hear in underground films of the time, but sometimes almost given a Brian Eno sort of tunefulness too. Other tracks are vocal numbers, and have a rootsy rock vibe that seems much more west coast than New York – which makes a nice contrast. There's even a few spoken passages that feature Edie's voice from the film – which balances things out in a great way. Titles include "Angel Shock", "Driving Verdeccio", "Revolution Of Youth", and "Night Riders" by Gino Piserchio – plus "I Can't Make It Anymore" by Richie Havens, "Citizen Kane" by Skip Battin & Kim Fowley, "To Give All Your Love Away" by Richie Havens, "Malibu People" by John Phillips, "Justice" by Kim Milford, and "Shouldn't All The World Be Dancing" by Richie Havens.

A huge set of music – one that's maybe a bit different than you might expect! Right from the start, Stanley Kubrick was a groundbreaking director – one who had a great sense of music on the screen – sometimes from film scores that he'd commission for his movies, sometimes from previous recordings that were used in really effective ways in a scene! This package focuses strongly on that second half of the Kubrick legacy – and includes selections by a huge amount of talents – including Ralph Vaughan Williams, John Coltrane, Sergei Prokofiev, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Johan Strauss, Toots Thielemans, Vera Lynn, Oscar Peterson, Bela Bartok, and others – as used in films that include Dr Strangelove, 2001 A Space Oddysey, Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and Eyes Wide Shut. The set also features film scores from Spartacus by Alex North and Lolita by Nelson Riddle – and the whole thing comes in a box set with a booklet – featuring 69 tracks in all, with a lot of musical surprises!

A totally cool little compilation – kind of the sonic equivalent of a night at the drive-in movies! The package digs through some really raunchy exploitation rock of the 60s – gritty garage tracks, freaky exotic numbers, and other rough-edged gems – then mixes the music with rare horror film trailers and movie dialogue from the time – creating a combination that's totally out of this world! There's a creepy feel to the whole thing – an edgey sensibility that goes way beyond the novelty mode you might expect – and which really gets at the eerie undercurrent that lingered in the farther reaches of film production during these glory days. The collection was first cooked up two decades ago, but it's just as powerful today – a must for any fan of the Norton, Kicks, Svengoolie, or Roctober side of the spectrum! Titles include "Shook Out Of Shape" by Carol Kay & The Stone Tones, "You Is A Rat Pfink" by Ron Haydock & The Boppers, "Twist Fever" by Arch Hall & The Archers, "The Lemon Grove Kids" by Don Snyder & Pee Wee Flyn, "The Bird's The Word" by Rocky Roberts & The Airedales, "She Devils Instrumental" by R Lewis Band, and lots more great stuff – including trailers from Girls From SIN, Maniacs Are Loose, Thrill Killers, Strange Rampage, Hypnovista, and lots more weird movies!

Way more than just the usual collection of famous British TV themes from the 60s – as this set offers up some great rare nuggets, unusual versions, and some obscure tracks that are all pretty darn fresh to our American years! As you well know if you're a fan of anything pop culture from this generation, British TV was way hipper than most of the American small screen in the 60s – from the stories, to the settings, to the wonderfully cool themes and backing music that supported the show – often a cool hybrid of postwar Soho jazz modes and lots of the best soundtrack/sound library styles that were evolving in the hands of an elite few on the London scene. Some of the best and grooviest of that generation are presented here – in an overstuffed collection that includes "Gurney Slade" by Max Harris, "Danger Man" by Red Price Combo, "The Avenger" by Johnny Dankworth, "Tuesday Rendezvous" by Bert Weedon, "Face To Face" by Frank Chacksfield, "Comedy Playhouse" by Ron Grainer, "What The Papers Say" by London Philharmonic, "Monty Python's Flying Circus" by Eastman Wind Ensemble, "The Saint" by Les Reed, "Fireball" by Don Spencer, "Z Cars" by Johnny Keating, and a number of tracks from The Prisoner too!

The music is as groovy as groovy can be – sometimes funky, sometimes slinky – and done in this blend of heavy electric bass, nicely snapping drums, riffing guitar, and some great use of wordless vocals – maybe no surprise, since Alessandroni was the man behind the legendary I Cantori Modern! There's a great sense of variety all the way through – all killer, no filler – and titles include "Vocalisation", "Spiagge Azzurre", "Aliante Giallo", "Ciclamino", "Arioso Spirituale", "Cielo Verde", and "Marmittone".

✨✧ Edwin Astley/Tony CrombieInternational Detective/Man From Interpol ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 classic sexy soundtrack from the 70s – maybe the greatest thing ever to come from the pen of composer Pierre Bachelet, and a lot more rich than the images on the screen from Just Jaeckin's cinematic version of The Story Of O! Bachelet works in a mix of electric and acoustic styles – definitely inspired by some of the Italian sex scores of the time, but more spacious overall – so that the notes and rhythms really have time to entice and unfold before really hitting the right sort of sensual sound! The vibe is very spacey, with a dreamy rainy afternoon sound – with nice touches of electronics, and a good mellow feel – on titles that include "O'Apres", "O'She's A Lady", "O'Et L'Amour A Trois", "O'Et Sir Stephen", and "O'Et La Photo De Jacqueline".

A demonic possession soundtrack, and one that's put together with just the right sort of sounds – music that's so creepy and eerie, we keep looking over our shoulders when we're giving it a listen – and which hardly sounds like any other similar soundtracks from the time! Marcello Giombini didn't try to copy some of the bigger satanic possession films of the period – and instead just revels in his own unique combination of instruments – which sometimes includes keyboard passages acting larger orchestrations, which have this weird way of refracting the real so that things really sound unusual and offbeat. There's a bit of wordless vocals from I Cantori Moderni, and a few darker electronic moments – although this isn't really an electronic score overall – and titles include "Tema Ossessa", "Tema Agitato", "Suspence Diabolica", "Esorcismo Ex Abea", "Tema Drammatico", and "Messa Nera".

✨✧ David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack (40th anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time. The CD features a whopping 35 tracks in all, with hefty notes in both Polish and English – and the whole thing may well be one of the grooviest Gad Records projects to date! CD

Amazing sounds from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – penned for a legendary horror film from the early 80s! The movie goes way beyond typical grit and gore – with a surreal bent that's made it the stuff of much discussion over the years – and Korzynski's music definitely lives up to the spirit of the images on the screen – mixing 80s electronics with offbeat strings, odd percussion, and other compelling bits – often used in very short songs that shift often throughout the course of the album – easily making the record one of the most playful we've ever heard from Finders Keepers – yet also one of the darkest too! A few sweet keyboard melodies offset some of the spookiness in a nice way – and titles include "Helen Has Green Eyes", "Opetanie 1", "The Night The Screaming Stops", "Blue Ford B AZ6", "Heinrick's Demise", "Mark Looks In The Fridge", "What Is It", and "Closely Observed Anna".

Nice 60s crime jazz from Mancini! Although Mancini's fame was made in the late 50s for his work on the classic Peter Gunn TV show, it's less known that he also did the score for the less-than-successful Peter Gunn film. Directed in 1967 by Blake Edwards, the film was a weak attempt to transfer the Gunn image to the big screen – but Mancini remained above the fray, as his solid scoring is just about the only thing we remember about the film today. The tracks include 60's remakes of some nice themes from the original show, plus a few other nice numbers thrown in for good measure. Recorded (as usual) in LA, with players like Bud Shank, Ray Brown, Plas Johnson, and Shelly Mann – and a set list that includes "Dreamsville", "Sky Watch", "A Bluish Bag", and "The Monkey Farm".

Non Si Sevizia Un Paperino has these amazing string passages that really creep us out – played with razor-sharpness and echoey quality on the best cuts, in an almost Psycho-like style that's really wonderful!

DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
5CDs, and a set of great soundtracks to early films by director Federico Fellini – music that forever set the standard for a new generation of film composers! First up is La Strada – the brilliant mid 50s filled that starred a young Giulettia Masini as one of the saddest clowns ever to grace the silver screen – an amazing performance supported here by key early work from Nino Rota. Rota's score is a mix of circus-like themes and darker moments – all delivered with a dynamic energy that's really wonderful – almost leaping out of the speakers at some points, then sliding into shimmering, watery depths at others. Titles include "Il Pranzo Di Nozze", "Tema Della Strada", "Gelsomina", "Il Bambino Malato", "Zampano Abbandona Gelsomina", and "Addio Del Matto". Next is Le Notti Di Cabiria – aka Nights Of Cabiria – a film of similar vintage, with an equally wonderful score by Rota! The music's a bit more lush this time around – fuller orchestrations at times, but always with that ear for an isolated melody amidst the larger body – that sense of personality that makes Rota's soundtracks so great. Titles include "Picnic Al Divino Amore", "L'Illusionista", "Il Trasloco", "Aspettando Giorgio", and "Le Notti Di Cabiria". La Dolce Vita is one of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". 8 1/2 is beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back and forth as the mood of the film changes, in a similar mode to the scoring for La Dolce Vita. Titles include "Cadillac", "Cimitero", "Discesa Ai Fanghi", "La Passerella D'Addio", "Concertino Alle Terme", and "E Poi". Last up is a special soundtrack – featuring works from very early films by Fellini – including Il Bidone, I Vitelloni, Un Agenzia Matrimoniale, Lo Sceicco Bianco, and La Grande Seduzione. CD

Two obscure soundtracks for equally obscure films directed by Euro-sex maestro Jess Franco – laid out here back to back on a single set! La Comtesse Noire has music that moves slowly, but with a nicely slinky vibe – and a fair bit of wordless female vocals that are maybe in an Edda Dell'Orso style, but also have some warmer currents too – almost jazzy at times, echoed by some jazzy paino work on one track – which makes a very surprising sound for a movie like this! Titles include "La Mort A La Bouche", "Eromantic Jazz", "Eromantic Lounge", "Eromantic Piano", "Vox Intima", and "La Comtesse Noire". Des Frissons Sur La Peau follows with more great wordless vocals – but also maybe has more piano lines in the lead, too – echoing a very nice main melody that's both sad-tinged and sexy – a nicely creepy blend! Titles include the funky "Viree Nocturne", plus a few variations on the "Des Frissons" theme – and some bonus material from the sessions. CD

Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The continuing lost legacy of Patrick Cowley – the San Francisco 80s club maestro who made some famous records with Sylvester – but who also did a huge amount of underground sounds for porno films at the time! This set digs deep into that legacy – by featuring music that Cowley did for the 1982 film Afternooners, as well as a few other tracks from the time – material that's a great 80s extrapolation of the sorts of slinky funk you'd know from 70s porn! The sounds here are heavy on beats and keyboards – a much more slowed-down take on territory that Cowley explored on his club singles of the period – and the basslines are plenty heavy, and very seductive – as you might imagine, given the images they were used with on the screen. We should tell you that the package does include a few nude images inside – so be warned if you're offended by that sort of thing. Titles include "Love Come Set Me Free", "Big Shot", "Surfside Sex", "Hot Beach", "The Runner", "One Hot Afternoon", "Leather Bound", and "Bore & Stroke". CD

Two great female horror soundtracks – both recorded for director Jean Rollin, and done twenty years apart – but with a nicely unified vibe that works well on this CD! La Morte Vivante is from 1982, but avoids most of the keyboard-heavy modes of other horror work of the period – as there's other instrumentation in the mix, and nice acoustic elements that really balance with the electric ones – to create this interplay that's nicely offsetting, and downright creepy! Rather than the keyboards come on strong, they're used in slow, supple ways – almost like an evil element in the mix, especially alongside sweeter sounds – on titles that include "Les Retrouvailles", "Retour A Chateau", "La Proie", "Le Petit Bal Slow", "Le Suicide", and "La Morte Dans La Crypte". La Fiancee De Dracula is from 2002, but is more acoustic overall – and has some great cello, piano, and violin in the lead on a number of tracks – slow-building melodies that have a very eerie vibe – and one very creepy vocal track too. Titles include "L'Attaque", "Isabelle Reve", "Le Gramophone", "La Comptine", "Liberte", "Requiescat In Pace", and "La Vampire Et Triboulet". CD

Other tracks might bring in a bit of flute, which sometimes warms things up, sometimes makes them creepier – and apart from a few lighter moments, most of the tracks here are nice and brooding. Titles include "Angeli Bianci", "Messa Nera", "M25", "Reparto Agitati", "Risonanza No 3", "Satania", and "Tensione". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 300 copies.)

✨✧ Daniel WhiteLa Comtesse Noire/Des Frissons Sur La Peau ... CD
Omega Productions (France), 1973/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two obscure soundtracks for equally obscure films directed by Euro-sex maestro Jess Franco – laid out here back to back on a single set! La Comtesse Noire has music that moves slowly, but with a nicely slinky vibe – and a fair bit of wordless female vocals that are maybe in an Edda Dell'Orso style, but also have some warmer currents too – almost jazzy at times, echoed by some jazzy paino work on one track – which makes a very surprising sound for a movie like this! Titles include "La Mort A La Bouche", "Eromantic Jazz", "Eromantic Lounge", "Eromantic Piano", "Vox Intima", and "La Comtesse Noire". Des Frissons Sur La Peau follows with more great wordless vocals – but also maybe has more piano lines in the lead, too – echoing a very nice main melody that's both sad-tinged and sexy – a nicely creepy blend! Titles include the funky "Viree Nocturne", plus a few variations on the "Des Frissons" theme – and some bonus material from the sessions. CD
(Limited to 200 copies.)

✨✧ VariousSomething Weird's Greatest Hits (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Something weird, and something very cool too – a set that brings together a whole host of strange and unusual tunes from the glory days of exploitation cinema! These cuts are all from a time when the b-movie underground was playing it fast and loose – trying to get more folks into the theaters with some ultra-sleazy themes – which resulted in wilder music than you might have heard in movies just a few short years before! The package is presented by Something Weird – the video company who've reissued lots of these exploitation films over the years – and the package is kind of a "best of" their on-screen efforts – as it also includes some spoken passages from films, which further make the tunes sound great. The package is divided up into themes – Psychedelic Hippie Freak Out, Rock O Rama Go Go, Deliriously Demented Ditties, and Sleazy Swinging Sounds – with work by Johnny Hawksworth, John Barry, The Group, The Love Generation, Joe Bisko, Alan Hawkshaw, Lee Dowell, The Penny Arcade, Billy Lee Riley, Betty Dickson, John Gabriel, Neil Patrick, Meg Myles, and The Huntington Astronauts. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Carlo SavinaUltime Grida Dalla Savana (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lively sounds from Ultime Grida Dalla Savana – a 70s exploitation film that continued the "wild world" tradition of films like those in the Mondo Cane series! The setting here is the African savanna, but the music is mostly orchestral – a combination of driving themes that are right out of the sound library generation, mixed with other numbers that are maybe a bit more sensitive, in a soundtrack sort of style. Yet the lively numbers really dominate – and although we've never seen the film, the use of sprightly strings, bubbling electric bass, and even some wordless whistling must have been a great contrast to some of the images on the screen. Titles include "Questa Grande Terra", "Holland & Holland", "L'Armadillo", "Morgan Il Cacciatore", "Morte Di Un Animale", "Orango In Liberta", "Ragazzi In Festa", "Festa Paesana", and "Gli Struzzi". This expanded CD version features the full original album, plus 14 more tracks from the film score, and even three vocal numbers – "My Love" by Ann Collin, and "Leave The Rest For Me" and "For You & Me" by Gilbert Kopland.
