David ShireFarewell My Lovely ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Farewell My Lovely is a great late Robert Mitchum film – kind of a 70s noir, featuring Mitchum as Philip Marlowe – and the music is kind of a reworking of an older style of dramatic crime soundtrack styles, with the additional of some more off-beat and edgey passages that create a more sinister feel. The score's actually got some nice jazz work by players that include Dick Nash, Don Menza, and Artie Kane – and features 12 titles that include "Mrs Grayle's Theme", "Amthor's Place", "Marlowe's Trip", "Three Mile Limited", and "Moose Finds His Velma".

Burt BacharachCasino Royale (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Colgems, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... About November 1, 2019 (delayed)
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best work. A few performances on the set are by Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass, who do the completely chaotic "Casino Royale Theme" – and the lovely Dusty Springfield sings a versions of "Look Of Love" that has to be the best ever recorded! Other tracks include "Home James, Don't Spare The Horses", "Money Penny Goes For Broke", "The Venerable Sir James Bond", and "Hi There Miss Goodthighs". LP, Vinyl record album

John CameronKes ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $25.99
The long-overdue issue of material that was originally recorded for the film Kes back in 1969 – short and lovely numbers arranged and composed by Brit easy talent John Cameron! Cameron's best known for his work in more groove-oriented formats – but this soundtrack is something completely different, and equally great – a set of spare and compelling tunes played by a small combo that includes British jazz players Harold McNair, Ronnie Ross, David Snell, Tony Carr, and Danny Moss. The overall album is quite short, but it features a stunning range of sounds, tones, and colors – with a strong focus especially on the flute work of McNair, easily one of the greatest London players of his generation, and sort of England's answer to Roland Kirk. Titles include "Billy's Paper Round", "Billy Sees Kes In The Tower", "Kes First Flight", "Training Kes", "Billy Asleep In The Boiler Room", "Burying Kes", and "Foreboding". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiEcologia Del Delitto (Bay Of Blood) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest 70s soundtracks from the great Stelvio Cipriani – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The music here was scored for a Mario Bava horror film, but it often has a quality that's more lean and lovely overall – that current of sex that we always love in Ciprani's best work, and which made him a key force for transforming the Italian bossa and jazz soundtrack style of the 60s into something completely new for the 70s! There's a lot of sweet keyboards in the music – as you'd expect from Stelvio – but there's also some cool rootsy percussion, which creates a nice juxtaposition between acoustic and electric, especially as things get a bit spookier near the end. Titles include "Ultimo Atto", "Solitudine Di Simone", "Teenagers Cha Cha Cha", "Due Amanti", "Evelyn Theme", "Shake Giradischi", and "Un Cadavere Nel Lago". CD features 31 tracks in all – including 11 never-issued bonus tracks! CD

CyrkleMinx – Original Soundtrack (colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks & DVD) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Modern Harmonic, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy rock numbers – in a mode that's somewhere between the Barbarella soundtrack and work on some of the AIP soundtracks on Tower – but then there's also some cool instrumentals, with a mixture of easy instrumentation and 60s rock effects. Titles include "On The Road", "The Minx", "Nicole", "The Party", "Walter's Riff", and "The Chase". Groovy stuff – with a real sexy Euro sound at the best moments! Mono bonus cuts include "It's A Lovely Game Louise", "The Riggin",j "Baxter's Dangerous Game", and "Something Special". LP, Vinyl record album

Francesco De MasiLa Macchina Della Violenza (aka The Big Game) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
An excellent 70s Italian film score – penned for a political thriller, but handled with a fair bit of sweet and lovely themes! The album's one of the best we've ever heard from Francesco De Masi, and it nicely mixes his usual strong talents for action with a bit more warmth that befits the sexier side of the Italian cinematic spectrum. Sweet strings glide in alongside tighter electric basslines on some tracks – and others feature evocative woodwind bits, haunting piano, and a few more dramatic orchestrations – all wrapped up with really lovely sound throughout, and reissued here in a wonderful new package that really fits the music! There's a few vocal tracks – "Tomorrow Is A Foreign Land" and "Time On My Hands" – sung in English by Melody – and other titles include "The Story Of A Dream", "Running Against The Time", "Cape Town Harbour", "Soldiers Aboard", "Red Clouds", "Ending A Dream", "Suspect & Love", and "You'll Kill Her".

Georges Delerue/Brigitte Bardot/Jeanne MoreauViva Maria ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
We've got to admit that we've never seen this film – which stars Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau, and which was directed by Louis Malle – but the lovely look of the ladies on the cover was enough to make us pick up the record! The themes are a mixture of French and Mexican styled ones – and Bardot & Moreau sing together on the tunes "Paris Paris Paris", "Maria Maria", and "Les Petites Femmes". Other tracks include "Cirque", "Theme Victoire Colline", "Dame Blanche", and "Musique De Cachot Jeanne Flores". LP, Vinyl record album

David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack (40th anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
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.

Michel LegrandLes Parapluies De Cherbourg (2LP version) ... LP
Philips/Universal (France), 1965. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99
Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that later became worldwide hits – like "I Will Wait For You" and "Watch What Happens" – but in this version, the songs are just themes in the huge pastiche of dialogue and narrative, and they lurk behind the score in a beautiful way. This is one of our favorite all-time soundtracks, and this French version has a very lovely cover with Catherine Deneuve standing amidst some umbrellas! Great 2LP version – with more material than the original LP release! LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniParty ... LP
RCA, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... About November 1, 2019 (delayed)
A great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry Mancini! The tunes are very groovy – with a few chorus vocal numbers, and some other wonderful tracks that mix together bits of sitar, guitar, and horn blasts – creating a very lively instrumental groove. Plus, the music is played by a tight group of LA jazzmen – with Plas Johnson on tenor, Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Shelly Manne on drums – all musicians who really make things cook! Titles include instrumental and chorus versions of "Nothing To Lose", plus "Chicken Little Was Right", "Birdie Num Num", "Party Poop", "Wiggy", and "Brunette In Yellow". Swingin!

✨✧ Henry ManciniTwo For The Road ... LP
RCA, 1967. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does a wonderful job of hitting the perfect blend of sentiment and whimsy to match the movie – offering some tunes that have a solid, serious feel – mixed with lighter numbers that make for nice mood changers, both on record and in the film. An orchestra is used on most numbers, occasionally with some European touches, given the setting of the movie – and a chorus performs one version of the theme, alongside two other instrumental ones. Titles include "The Chaser", "Something Loose", "Congarocka", "Happy Barefoot Boy", "The Lovely Life", and "The Donk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Curtis MayfieldSuperfly (expanded version) ... CD
Curtom/Rhino, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Curtis Mayfield's lasting classic – and an album that the world will remember forever! Apart from being his hugely successful entry into the blacksploitation soundtrack field, this album's also a monster set of grooves that includes some of Curtis' funkiest work ever – a record that works as well as a 70s soul album as it does a hip action film score! The track list alone reads as a who's who of 70s funk – filled with gems that include "Pusherman", "Freddie's Dead", "Little Child Runnin' Wild", "Give Me Your Love", and "Superfly" – and the rest of the set is equally great, essential listening throughout! Plus, this set also features a whole bonus CD – one that brings together extra tracks, unreleased cuts, alternate versions, instrumental versions, and even some cool radio promotional spots! with the "Check Out Your Mind" instrumental studio jam, the full-length version of the instrumental "Junkie Chase", the demo version of "Ghetto Child", and lots more! Great stuff – and in a lovely fold-out package, with the same foldover die-cut cover of the original LP! (Soul, Soundtracks) CD

Franco MicalizziAdolescenza Perversa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
The world premiere of this sweet 70s soundtrack from Franco Micalizzi – a great batch of erotic-tinged tunes originally penned for an Italian film about teenage lust! The music has a warmly gentle quality that's similar to some of Ennio Morricone's work in this mode – tunes that alternate between soft strings, stepping instrumentation, and even bits of vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso, sounding a bit sweeter here than on some of her spookier soundtracks! The tunes float very nicely in the breeze – sometimes hanging bit a single piano note or two – sometimes getting a bit more drive from rhythms that verge on funky, but hang back just a bit. And as with any of the great Morricone scores from the time, there's a few key variations on the themes that spin out beautifully as the set rolls on – creating a great sense of sonic interplay!

GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $18.99
Italy meets Australia – in a lovely set of grooves written by Piero Piccioni for this little-seen Alberto Sordi film from 1971! The sound is as sunny as you'd expect – with the Piccioni bossa groove used to set the scene for postwar Australia – sometimes coming across with lighter, livelier tones, sometimes getting a bit lusher in the more serious parts – but always coming across with a great Italian soundtrack sparkle! There's some wonderful Italian bossa bits on the set – skipping out with some snapping snare bits, topped off by warm horn passages and some great use of electric keys! Titles include "La Gita In Barca", "L'Arrivo In Citta", "I Primi Approcci", "La Delusione Di Carmela", "Shopping In Sydney", "Il Sogno Di Carmela", and "Incontro All'Aeroporto". CD features 14 bonus tracks, most of which are previously unreleased! CD

Sam PottleCount Counts ... LP
Sesame Street, 1975. Very Good ... $1.99
One of the coolest of the early Sesame Street records! The format is a bit similar to that of Multiplication Rock – in that The Count sings a number of songs, with help from others – about numbers and counting and addition. The music changes to fit the modes of the songs – never totally funky, but with some nice 70s changes at times. The whole thing's a pretty darn groovy way to learn – and there's plenty of cool spoken bits that would be ripe for pulling out as samples! Titles include "It's A Lovely Eleven Morning", "The Count's Weather Report", "Counting Is Wonderful", "Country Six", "Beep", "Four Big Lions", "The 3 Song", and "The Song Of The Count".

Jeff ResnickSAC ... LP
RIT/Outernational (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
A totally wonderful little record, and one with a very unlikely origin story too – given that the music was originally composed to highlight the different creative departments at the Rochester Institute Of Technology in the late 70s! The music is all jazz on side one – done in this warmly groovy way that reminds us a lot of our favorite Australian jazz of the time – very illuminating, with a vivid sense of image within the music – but never in a way that's forced, stiff, or held to any sort of rigid structure. The group on that side features producer Jeff Resnick on keyboards, plus great trumpet from a young Jeff Tyzik, piano from Sonny Kompanek, and tenor and flute from Ramon Ricker. Side two is a bit more electric – with a mix of different keyboards from Resnick, who also dubs over some soprano and alto recorders, and makes a bit of space for some especially lovely work on flute and saxes from Dick Griffo – all with a style that echoes side one, but with more emphasis on keyboards. The whole thing's pretty darn great – with a sound that's even more vivid than its lost history! (Jazz, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin/Leonard RosenmanTelefon/Hide In Plain Sight ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1977/1980. Used ... $14.99
Two late 70s thriller soundtracks – back to back in a mighty sweet package! First up is Lalo Schifrin's score for the tense Charles Bronson thriller Telefon – music we've never seen on an original LP, put forward here in brilliantly remastered sound! Many numbers are quite tense – the darker side of the Schifrin spectrum – the moodier styles you'll remember from some of his more famous cop and crime soundtracks from years back – with spare, suspended strings interwoven with gentle woodwind bits on many numbers. Titles include "Remember Nikulin", "KGB Headquarters", "Lucky Girl", "Callender", "The Woods Are Lovely/The Purse", "After The Explosion", and "If That Is So". Hide In Plain Sight is a lesser-known score from Leonard Rosenman, but one that really fits the mood of the Schifrin music – dramatic, but without ever being too much so – and balanced at times by a few sweeter moments, too. Titles include "Tom Hides", "Finale", "Let's Go", "Followed On The Freeway", and "Untouchables". Comes with the usual great Film Score notes, images, and packaging! CD
