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

✨✧ Francesco De MasiI Familiari Delle Vittime Non Saranno Avvertiti (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic Italian soundtrack – for a 70s thriller that starred Telly Savalas and Antonio Sabato – and which features maybe some of the grooviest sounds we've heard from Francesco De Masi at the time! Francesco is really changing himself up from the 60s – not just using funky touches and fuzzy instrumentation, but also really exploring the overall sound of the music – not just the tunes of the songs! The result is this fantastic sense of sonic delight throughout – older crime/cop modes coming into play with the growing sense of the studio as one of the most important instruments in Italian film scoring – carried off at a level that matches Morricone at his best, which is something we wouldn't expect to say about De Masi. 26 tracks in all – and great throughout!

Fabio Frizzi/Walter Rizzati & Alessandro BlonksteinerLucio Fulci's Gates Of Hell Trilogy (City Of The Living Dead/The Beyond/House By The Cemetery) (3CD set) ... CD
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".

✨✧ George & Ira Gershwin/Fred Astaire/Audrey HepburnFunny Face ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest moments of success in the early years of Verve Records – and one of the label's few soundtracks too! The album's one that cleverly combines the core Verve jazz approach with some larger orchestrations by Adolph Deutsche – in a set of tunes based around the compositions of George and Ira Gershwin, used in a new catalog musical that starred Fred Astaire, Audrey Hepburn, and Kay Thompson! The link to the music of the Gershwins is right up there with the important Songbook projects Verve was doing at the time – and of course, Fred Astaire recorded some great material for the label in the 50s too – reminding the world that he could be a pretty great singer when he wanted, even away from film. Fred's maybe the biggest attraction here, as are some of the new tunes added in by Roger Edens and Leonard Gershe – and titles include "Funny Face", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Clap Yo Hands", "S'Wonderful", "Think Pink", "Bonjour Paris", "Let's Kiss & Make Up", and "He Loves & She Loves".

Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaGruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza (1965) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
One of the most obscure chapters in the career of Ennio Morricone – important avant garde work recorded in the mid 60s, just at a point when he was beginning to rise in soundtrack fame! The ensemble is a key Italian modernist group featuring Morricone, Giovanni Piazza, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Gualtiero Branch, Jesus Villa Rojo, and Francesco Evangelisti – mostly classically-trained musicians, but working here in a set of improvisations that are extremely spare, and which are very much at the lower end of the sound spectrum. Many of the sounds on the set are right at the frontiers of hearing – and others, while more present, disappear as quickly as they emerge – further enforcing the mystery and mood of the record. And while the overall style is quite different than Morricone's soundtrack work, the group was clearly a key testing ground for his ideas of sound and space that emerged later. Titles include "Soup", "Scratch", "Settimino", and "Eflot". (Out Sound, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Maurice JarreGrand Prix ... LP
MGM, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
Quite an important soundtrack – penned for a mid 60s French/American production directed by John Frankenheimer and starring James Garner, Yves Montand, Toshiro Mifume, and Francoise Hardy! The film's an auto racing one – in case you couldn't guess from the title – but the soundtrack's mostly in the lusher mode of Jarre's famous 60s work (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago) – orchestral and bold, with lots of dark elements that spiral up from the bottom and take over the tunes strongly. The songs shift between sweeter, easier themes – and longer, louder, racing type ones – and there's a bit of sound effects thrown in, as on the typical racing soundtrack from the period. Titles include "Theme From Grand Prix", "The Clermont Race", "The Lonely Race Track", "In The Garden", "Sarti's Love Theme", "Scott & Pat", and "The Zandvoort Race". LP, Vinyl record album

Kendrick Lamar & OthersBlack Panther (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Interscope, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 34.99
A modern classic hip hop soundtrack to Black Panther that should make T'Challa proud! It was pretty clear early on that Black Panther might be one of the greatest modern super hero movies – and an important one for the political and cultural climate of the late teens – so the pressure was on to deliver a relevant soundtrack. What's stunning is how creatively uncompromising it is, with sharp, lyrically pointed tracks by Kendrick Lamar – and with no watering things down to PG-13 on this unedited version – plus tracks by Schoolboy Q, Vince Staples, The Weeknd, Ab-Soul and more. Kendrick headlines or guests on several tracks including the title track, "All The Stars" with SZA, "King's Dead" with Jay-Rock, Future & James Blake, "Big Shot" with Travis Scott and "Pray For Me" with Weeknd. Other tracks include "Opps" by Vince Staples, "I Am" with Jorja Smith, "X" by Schoolboy Q, 2 Chainz & Saudi and more. (Hip Hop, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Anthony Newley/Peter Sellers/Mandy Rice-Davies/Miss XFool Britannia/Scandal/Stop The World I Want To Off ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the wit of England in the years before the rise of Monty Python – a special early 60s time when new ways of lampooning society were really coming into play, sometimes finding their only outlet on the musical stage! As part of that legacy, the set features two important early Anthony Newley productions – the international hit Stop The World I Want To Get Off, and the even more striking Fool Britannia – a parody of the Profuma affair, with a cast that includes Newley, Peter Sellers, and Joan Collins. The 2CD collection also adds in some Profumo-related recordings, to provide context – as well as some great selections from That Was The Week That Was, a show headed by David Frost – and a full run of other late 50s/early 60s songs from the soundtrack to the film Scandal – which dealt with the story. There's way too much to list here – the collection has a whopping 52 tracks in all – and the music provides a great portrait of early 60s UK – with selections that include "You've Got What It Takes" and "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" by Mandy Rice-Davies, "Christine" and "SEX" by Miss X, "Couple" by Eleanor Bron & John Fortune, "Running Bear" by Johnny Preston, "Apache" by The Shadows, "If You're Game Baby" and "Well I Must Admit Sir" by That Was The Week That Was, the full soundtracks to Fool Britannia and Stop The World – plus more titles too!

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in slightly different versions, with a style that's a bit more adult and more off-center than we remember – all sitting next to some groovy instrumental tunes score by a young Dave Grusin, and shifting the mood nicely from track to track. Titles include "Whew", "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "The Singleman Party Foxtrot", "April Come She Will", "On The Strip", "The Folks", "Mrs Robinson", and "Sounds Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBreakfast Club – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
Universal, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
The soundtrack for one of the most popular John Hughes films of the 80s, and the soundtrack for a generation as well – a mix of songs that were partly pulled from other sources, but which went on to make the idea of a compilation soundtrack every bit as important as a full original film score! The set kicks off with the massive hit "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds – the virtual theme of the film – then moves through tunes that include "Fire In The Twilight" by Wang Chung, "Waiting" by Elizabeth Daily, "We Are Not Alone" by Karla DeVito, "Didn't I Tell You" by Joyce Kennedy, and "Heart Too Hot To Hold" by Jesse Johnson & Stephanie Spruill. And the set also features a few instrumentals – "I'm The Dude", "Dream Montage", "The Reggae", and "Love Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousWattstax – The Living Word ... CD
Stax, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
A landmark double-live album that was easily one of the most important soul record moments of the 70s! The concert was an all-star event held in LA to celebrate the anniversary of the Watts riots – but it features a killer lineup of talent from the roster of Stax Records – by then a proud independent with more than enough power to spread a nationwide message from Memphis to Los Angeles without any trouble! The record is nicely segmented – so that it offers up mini "sets" by each artist – really recreating the feel of the event, at a level that lived on in countless living rooms long after the concert was over. Titles include "Son Of Shaft/Feel It" and "I Can't Turn You Loose" by The Bar-Kays; "Ain't No Sunshine" by Isaac Hayes, "I Don't Know What This World Is Coming To" and "Hearsay" by The Soul Children, "I Like What You're Doing To Me" and "Gee Whiz" by Carla Thomas; "The Breakdown" and "Do The Funky Penguin" by Rufus Thomas, "Killing Floor" and "Angel Of Mercy" by Albert King"; "Respect Yourself" and "I'll Take You There" by The Staple Singers; and "Knock On Wood" by Eddie Floyd. Also includes 2 studio tracks recorded after the show – "Oh La De Da" by The Staple Singers, and "Lay Your Loving On Me" by Eddie Floyd. (Soul, Soundtracks) CD
