PaternosterDie Ersten Tage (3CD set) ... CD
Now Again, 1971. New Copy 3CD ... $9.99 20.98
A rare early moment from the legendary Austrian group Paternoster – sounds that predate their one and only cult-status album – originally created for the equally legendary film, Die Ersten Tage! The music here was never issued commercially at the time – and the release of these sounds adds a much-needed page to the slim book of Paternoster – especially since the creative flair of these songs really fleshes out our understanding of the group! As with their vocal music, most of the style here is slow, but jamming – kind of mellow prog, almost – but lighter, too – and with a moodier vibe, given the absence of lyrics – which lets the offbeat guitar parts do most of the speaking for the group. The whole thing's fragile, yet jagged – earthy, but cosmic – and the set features 30 tracks in all, appearing here on record for the first time ever! 3CD version features a bonus CD2, with 7 more film cue tracks – and CD3, which features demo versions of the songs "I Wanna Bring You Down", "Not Like You", "Paternoster", "Old Danube", "Mammoth Opus", "The Pope Is Wrong", and "Stop These Lines".

✨✧ Final SolutionBrotherman ... CD
Numero, 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A never-heard soundtrack for a never-seen film – and a record that's every bit as funky as better-known sets from the blacksploitation era! Final Solution were a small time group from Chicago's west side in the 70s, but on this wicked little soundtrack they sparkle just as brightly as Isaac Hayes, Willie Hutch, Curtis Mayfield, or any of our favorite soundtrack soul artists from the time – working in a really righteous approach to soul with lots of heavy rhythms on the bottom and rumbling bass in the mix – so that even when the tunes are mellow, there's still a bold, brash sort of power to the set! The vocals are mostly delivered in harmony style, again with a nice edge – a bit like The Impressions work on Three The Hard Way, but with more of an indie soul feel overall, given the production circumstances. Once again, our hats are off to Numero for unearthing this gem – and as usual, the full tale of the group, the movie, and the music is told at length in the accompanying 16 page booklet! Titles include "Brotherman", "Never Coming Back Again", "I Don't Care", "Girl In My Life", "Gotta Get Through To You", "One Day", "I'm Ready For Love", "Theme From Brotherman", "No Place To Run", and "We Can Work It Out".

Nick IngmanDistinctive Themes/Race To Achievement – KPM 1189 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
KPM/Be With (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Nick Ingman's known to some for his groovy guitar instrumentals of the 60s – but here, he's at the top of the sound library game – serving up bigger group instrumentals in two different styles! Side one features "distinctive themes" – and has Ingman working a big band through modes that start with a romping Basie soulful style, then move into more electrified 70s modes – a bit soundtracky, but with some nice touches! Side two features "race to achievement" – a series of short tracks that work very well as TV show themes – some offered in two versions, and all of them nice and brief, but with plenty of action in the mix! Titles include "Ooops", "Against The Odds", "Land Of Opportunity", "It's Easy", "Expanding Markets", "Made It", "Speedway", "Under Pressure", and "Light Preparation".

Michel LegrandMichel Legrand – Essential Works ... CD
Sony (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $32.99
A really wonderful collection of music penned by the legendary Michel Legrand – the French film maestro who's one of our favorite soundtrack composers ever – represented here in a beautiful assortment of lesser-known material! CD1 features tracks mostly recorded under Legrand's name – mostly from that late 60s/early 70s stretch when his talent was burning the most brightly, and pulled from recordings for Columbia, Bell, and other labels – with a fair bit of obscure bits in the mix. CD2 features interpretations of Legrand tunes by others – a mix of singers and instrumentalists, with again a strong focus on the late 60s/early 70s years! Legrand titles include "The Other Side Of Midnight, "Arrivee Des Camioneurs", "La Vie De Chateau", "Paris Was Made For Lovers", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Wuthering Heights", "Dis Moi", "Theme From The Go Between", "The Summer Knows", "Happy", "Recette Pour Un Cake D'Amour", and "Hinotori". Other tracks include "I Forget The Time" by Frankie Laine, "Can You Tell The Moment" by Natalie Desay, "One At A Time" by Lena Horne, "Orson's Theme" by Andre Kostelantez, "Windmills Of Your Mind" by Swingle II, "Years Of My Youth" by Rita Reys, "Pieces Of Dreams" by Peggy Lee, "Le Chanson Des Jumelles" by Caravelli, "Once Upon A Summertime" by Carmen McRae, and "One Day" by Jack Jones.

Lalo SchifrinMission Impossible ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A familiar record – but a fantastic one! You probably all know the famous theme to "Mission Impossible" – Lalo Schfrin's beautiful jazzy number, with three piano notes revolving over and over again with incredible intensity – and the rest of the record is every bit as great, filled with a wonderful mix of groovy styles! The groove ranges from fast bossa to groovy 60s crime jazz to sparer tenser numbers that still manage to move nicely – and listening to the record over the years, our ears are always happily surprised at the level of genius that was allowed expression in the guise of a normal TV soundtrack. Cuts include "Jim On The Move", "The Plot", "The Sniper", "Danger", and "Barney Does It All". LP, Vinyl record album

Yosuke YamashitaTenshi No Koukotu ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
A rare jazz soundtrack from Japanese pianist Yosuke Yamashita – best known for his avant recordings of the time, but sounding equally enigmatic here in the film score world! The album's hardly the standard jazz score – as the tunes shift mood strongly from track to track – starting with one long instrumental jam, then moving into a sad-tinged vocal number, then a spoken cut, and then more vocals – before ending up again with instrumental jazz. Yamashita's piano is sometimes a bit warmer than on other records, but often quickly surprises with some starker notes – and the set also features a bit of tenor and soprano sax work as well. All titles and players in Japanese – and the CD comes with a booklet that includes some haunting shots from the film! (Jazz, Soundtracks) CD

Bob DoroughMultiplication Rock (colored vinyl pressing) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Capitol, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Sure, it was silly stuff when we were kids – but once De La Soul sampled "Three Is The Magic Number", this record became one of the most prized in our possession! And thanks to that hip hop reintroduction, we've really fallen in love with the music again over the years – partly because the tunes are all so groovy, and partly because we've really come to know the jazz-based work of composer Bob Dorough! At the time of this set, Dorough was coming off some great work in the 60s – his own rare recordings, music for Spanky & Our Gang, and others – all of which seems to inform these math-based tunes written for Saturday morning TV. The tunes are all pretty darn catchy, and often quite jazzy – and instrumentation often features some great electric piano nestled in alongside the vocals. Dorough sings the lion's share of the work for this album – although Grady Tate sings on two numbers, and Blossom Dearie on one more. Titles include the amazing "Three Is A Magic Number" – plus "Lucky Seven Sampson", "Little Twelve Toes", "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "I Got Six", "Naughty Number Nine", "Figure Eight", and "The Four Legged Zoo".

✨✧ Stu Phillips/Tammy Wynette/The WindowsRun Angel Run ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Biker time again – as Stu Phillips lays down a tight little soundtrack for this obscure motorcycle flick from the late 60s! Stu started out as a jazz man, but is best known to us for his very groovy work on the Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls soundtrack. The best cuts on here are Stu's instrumentals – a mixture of funky jazz with a twist, and a bit of funky flute, plus some other numbers that have a well-composed, more serious approach. Highlights include "Friendly Fuzz", which mixes heavy guitars, drums, and flute – and "Rescue", which has a very similar approach – plus the chase-y groover "Get It On". Tammy Wynette sings the title cut "Run Angel Run", and The Windows sing "True Believers", "You're Gonna Get A Piece Of My Mind", and "Love & Admiration Of The Brotherhood Society Of South Napa County". Also includes "Oversexed" – a nice mellow tune with a misleading title. LP, Vinyl record album
