✨✧ 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

✨✧ Pierre BacheletHistoire D'O ... CD
CAM/Music Box (France), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". Great CD version – 28 tracks in all! CD

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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiSolamente Nero ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the darkest soundtracks we've ever heard from Stelvio Cipriani – a set that has some of the sweeter, more erotic touches of his other 70s work – but which also features a colder, electronic undercurrent as well – a very creepy style that's very much in the Halloween genre of film scoring! Cipriani's approach here is somewhat different than that of his Italian contemporaries – a bit less iconic, and willing to change things up a bit from time to time. But there's also some undeniably strong themes that run through the music too – including one swirling bit of dark analogue synth that almost feels as if it was pulled from some early 80s British industrial album. CD features wonderfully remastered sound – and features a 22 titles that include "L'Ossessione", "La Dolce Sandra", "Lettere", "Gli Inganni", and "Incubi Riccorrenti". CD

Patrick CowleyAfternooners ... LP
Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $20.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Guido & Maurizio DeAngelisContinuavano A Chiamarlo Trinita (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautifully sensitive soundtrack for this early film from the team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – very different than most of the other western music of the time – which is a fitting accompaniment to the unique actions of the pair onscreen! There's a fair bit of acoustic guitar in the instrumentation, used in ways that are sometimes warmer and more sentimental than you'd expect – played with a subtle sort of character that really comes through in this well-done reissue of the music – and which gets even better when groovier elements on piano or horns come into the mix. Things build nicely as the set moves on, with a very vivid feel throughout – and titles include "Remember", "Il Carro Al Fiume", "Assalto Alla Diligenza", "Ranch Di Parker", "Trinity E Bambino A San Jose", and "Trinity Stand Tall". Great reissue version – with excellent sound, notes in Italian and English, and even some vocal songs sung by Gene Roman. 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

✨✧ Jerry GoldsmithComa ... LP
MGM, 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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!

John HawksworthGoal – The World Cup 1966 ... CD
El (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Totally wonderful sounds from UK soundtrack giant John Hawksworth – penned for a film on the heated World Cup of 1966, but served up in John's usual blend of jazzy styles, mod elements, and beautifully tuneful grooves! The CD presents the music with lots of snippets of dialogue from the film – not talking, but a bit of narration, served up in a cool "proper" 60s Brit voice, which adds a surprising amount of charm to the album – but without getting in the way of the music – which does a nice "dance" with the narration on most numbers. Most titles are named after different matches represented on screen – "England V Portugal", "North Korea V Portugal", "England V Mexico", "Russia V Hungary", and so on! CD

✨✧ David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack (40th anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Andrzej KorzynskiPossession ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

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.

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

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGrazie Zia ... LP
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, and sort of satanic! Biance Di Renata Cortiglioni is the singer, and she's much more word-based than Edda Dell'Orso – and it appears that her vocals are overdubbed to create this cool sort of chorus effect – one that only makes the whole thing sound even creepier! In addition to the snapping rhythms of the vocal tunes, there's also some nice sprightly elements on the instrumental cuts too – not upbeat or funky, but an offbeat way that's got a jaunty snare for propulsion. Titles include "Fratello Biondo", "Guerra E Pace Polle E Brace", "Amore Col Cuore", and "Grazie Zia". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeHolocaust 2000 (splatter explosion colored vinyl) ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Nice to know that we've lived past the year 2000 – and have managed to miss the holocaust that Kirk Douglas fought in this late 70s film! The movie's just the kind of overdone thriller that Kirk handled late in his career – but thankfully, the music from Ennio Morricone is much deeper overall – done in that brilliant blend of creepy styles that could make anything come together on the screen, even without any good special effects or dialogue! Some numbers have spooky, spare passages with earthy percussion and woodwinds, others have offbeat strings, some have some light electric elements – and overall, the music is nicely understated, always classy, and years ahead of some of the cheaper horror scoring of the time. Titles include "Holocaust", "Computer", "Slogan", "Jesus", "Il Bene Cattivo", "Serie Di Tre", "Strofa Monodica", and "Telefonata Interrotta". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno NicolaiDefense De Savoir ... LP
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... About September 20, 2019
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. Titles include "La Verite", "Le Pouvoir", "Theme De Juliette", "Sans Espoir", "Concert A La Cour", "Tango Express", and "Tourbillon Final". LP, Vinyl record album

Deadlier than Dracula – and a lot funkier too! This is the original soundtrack for the classic blacksploitation horror flick starring the baaadest Drac ever to grace the screen of all those shabby downtown theaters that were still around in the 70s – a wicked batch of wah-wah tunes penned by Gene Page, and featuring a great bit of keyboards as well! 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.

If that creepy cover image alone isn't more than enough to make you want this record, the magical music within will certainly tip the balance! Jean-Bernard Raiteux may be best known for his French funk sounds in the Harlem Pop Trotters, but he's even more weird and wonderful here – turning in a wickedly groovy score for Jess Franco's film Les Demons (aka The Devils), with trippy sounds that are every bat as great as the music used in Franco's classic Vampyros Lesbos! The music has currents of jazz, funk, and psych – often all operating at once, with cool keyboards, fuzzy guitar, and lots of these fluttering flute lines that almost sound like Harold McNair or Roland Kirk on acid – blowing their minds, as they blow their minds out through their reed instruments too. Titles include "The Inquisition", "Kathleen Writhing", "The Stake", "The Seduction Of Winter", "The Second Inquisition", "A Witch's Daughter", and "Three Serpents To Kathleen's Dwelling".

✨✧ Nino RotaFellini Soundtracks (Early Movies/La Strada/Notti Di Cabiria/La Dolce Vita/8 1/2) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Temporarily 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

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".

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.

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon (remastered) ... CD
Warner, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". CD features 18 tracks in all – including an alternate version of the main theme! CD

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".

Jacques TatiPlaytime ... LP
United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
A wonderful selection of instrumental themes from the films of Jacques Tati – the closest thing to a full soundtrack you'll ever find for any of his movies! The package was originally issued upon the release of Play Time – and about half the music here is from that film – leaving the rest of the collection to include tracks from Jour De Fete, Mon Oncle, and Les Vacances De Monseuir Hulot. Music is by Francis Lemarque, Francois Rauber, and others – and overall, the music is mostly in a small combo mode – with instrumentation that includes piano, vibes, guitar, and accordion – used in very whimsical ways throughout, with a quality that's almost as visual as the images on the screen! Titles include "Chemisettes", "Jour De Fete", "Tournee Rapide", "Que Temps Fait-Il A Paris", "Mon Oncle Adios Mario", "Le Vieux Quartier", "Au Drugstore", "Manege", "Theme African", "Musique Strand", "Paris Circus", and "Play Time".

✨✧ Vangelis/New American OrchestraBlade Runner ... CD
East West/Warner (UK), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best-remembered moments of music from the enigmatic Vangelis – a set that's maybe a bit darker and more moody than some of his other records of the time – thanks to the Blade Runner setting provided by director Ridley Scott! Vangelis works plenty of familiar early 80s soundtrack elements here – lots of keyboards and electronic wash, plus even a bit of almost-cheesy sax at times – but he makes the whole thing sound nicely off-kilter at most moments, with just the sort of awkward replication that fits perfectly with the narrative theme of the film. There's some beautiful exotic currents that are maybe even more captivating here on record than you might remember from their use onscreen – and titles include "Memories Of Green", "Tales Of The Future", "Rachel's Song", "Blush Response", "Lone More Kiss Dear", and "Tears In Rain".

VariousEscape In Time – Popular British Television Themes Of The 60s ... CD
El (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
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!

VariousNew Jack City – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Giant/Reprise, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
The movie may not be one of the all-time classic action films, but it certainly gave the world a pretty great soundtrack – one that gave key mainstream exposure to some hip hop acts, and also served up a few mainstream R&B hits as well! Plus, the whole thing also gave Ice T some of his first big time on screen – although his performance in the classic "New Jack Hustler" is probably the best thing about the record! Other tracks include the slinky love classic "I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Badd – plus "In The Dust" by 2 Live Crew, "New Jack City" by Guy, "For The Love Of Money/Living For The City" by Troop/Levert with Queen Latifah, "(There You Go) Tellin' Me No Again" by Keith Sweat, "Lyrics 2 The Rhythm" by Essence, and "I'm Dreamin" by Christopher Williams.

VariousSomething Weird's Greatest Hits (2018 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $25.99
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.
