Chico Buarque/Nara Leao/Maria BethaniaQuando O Carnaval Chegar ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1972. Used ... $13.99
A fantastic soundtrack recorded in the immediate post-Tropicalia years – featuring some of the best early 70s work by Chico Buarque, Nara Leao, Maria Bethania, and others! The cover has a mad image with Buarque, Leao, and Bethania in top hats and shiny uniforms – and the music follows up with a similarly lively spirit – samba-esque, with other touches of rock and jazz production that give the work an expansive and trippy feel. Roberto Menescal handled the arrangements – and titles include "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Mais Uma Estrela" by Nara Leao, "Soneto" by Orquesta De Cordas, "Soneto" by Nara Leao, "Partido Alto" by MPB-4, "Formosa" by Nara Leao & Maria Bethania, "Baioque" by Maria Bethania, and "Cantores De Radio" by Chico, Naria, and Maria together!

✨✧ Miles DavisAscenseur Pour L'Echafaud (3 x 10 inch LP deluxe edition) ... LP
Fontana/Universal, 1958. New Copy 3 x 10 inch LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite-ever Miles Davis albums – and a groundbreaking soundtrack that forever changed the way that jazz music was used in film! According to legend, the sounds here were recorded by Miles on a hot Paris night – late in the studio, after a live performance – in a very intimate setting that had he and the combo creating these little poetic passages along with the action in the film! In addition to sublime and moody muted trumpet from Miles – the small group also features tremendous tenor work from the great Barney Wilen – a French modernist who's at the height of his powers – and beautiful bass from Pierre Michelot, whose rich tones really frame the whole proceedings. The rest of the group features bop pianist Rene Urtreger and American drummer Kenny Clarke – but the real charm comes from the interplay between Wilen, Davis, and Michelo. Titles include "Florence Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "L'Assassinat De Carla", "Diner Au Motel", "Evasion De Julien", "Nuit Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "Le Petit Bal", "Au Bar Du Petit Bac" and "Sur L'Autoroute". This amazing 3LP version features one never-issued track – "L'Interrogatoire De Julien" – plus 16 more tracks from the sessions for the recordings, and a booklet of notes!

✨✧ Francois De RoubaixL'Essential Francois De Roubaix ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the coolest soundtrack music you'll ever hope to hear – all played by a cat who could equally handle the sitar, guitar, Fender Rhodes, and electronics pictured on the cover! Francois De Roubaix is easily one of our favorite soundtrack composers ever – a French talent at the end of the 60s who never got the same international exposure as some of his countrymen, but who had an ear for odd instrumentation and funky undercurrents that rivals that of Serge Gainsbourg, Michel Colombier, or Jean-Claude Vannier – although we might even be tempted to say that Francois is even more way-out than any of them! This collection really lives up to its "essential" promise – and mixes together weird electronic numbers, bass-heavy funk tracks, jazzy groovers, and lots more – all with arrangements and production that are totally fresh, and which should turn you into the same sort of De Roubaix fanatic that we've been for years. Titles include "Le Samourai", "L'Homme Orchestre", "La Vie A Bord", "Les Caids", "Bataille Navale", "Clara 1939", "Journal De Bord", "Le Rapace", "La Scoumoune", "Dernier Domicile Connu", "Tom/Les Prisonniers", "Adieu L'Ami", and "Far From Dallas".

Eric DemarsanMelville – Le Derniere Samourai ... LP
Universal (France), 1960s/2020. New Copy ... $22.99
A really great collection of work from one of the great unsung heroes of the French soundtrack scene of the 60s – the mighty Eric Demarsan, who also gets the chance to provide us with new music on the first half of the set! The first half is music from a documentary on Jean-Pierre Melville – the French director who created such great films as Le Cercle Rouge, Le Doulos, Le Samourai, and other noir gems of the new wave – often scored by Demarsan, who provides new jazzy music for the documentary – played here by a group that features Erik Truffaz on trumpet, Daniel Ciampolini on vibes, Alexis Morel on flute, and Bruno Fontaine on piano – on titles that include "Le Dernier Samourai", "Un Destin", "Arrivee Au Studio", "L'Adieu", and "Reparages". The second half of the set featuers classic Demarsan work for films by Melville – tracks from L'Aine Des Fercahaux, Deux Hommes Dans Manhattan, Bob Le Flambeur, Le Cercle Rouge, and other classics!

Universal (France), 1965/1968. Used ... $13.99
The soundtracks to 2 of Jean Luc-Godard's greatest films – back to back on one CD! The score to Pierrot Le Feu features 9 tracks in all – 3 of which are vocal numbers by Anna Karina, who starred in the film, and who delivers the vocals with a decadently deadpan style that fits perfectly with the songs. The score to Week-End offered here is a new recording – done by the Orchestre Sinfonietta Moldava, under the direction of Leonardo Gasparini. There's a total of 16 tracks in all, with images from the films and notes in English and French! Titles include "Jamais Je Ne T'Ai Dit Que Je T'Aimerai Toujours", "Ferdinand", "Pierrot", "Twist Pour Jean-Luc", "Lamento", "L'Internationale", and "Elle Et Lui". CD

✨✧ Brian EnoRams – Original Soundtrack (white vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Opal/Universal, 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great soundtrack work from Brian Eno – a record that's maybe more stark than some of his other work of the past few decades – but in a way that's no surprise, given that the music is for a film about the brilliant minimalist designer Dieter Rams! There are sounds here that recall some of Eno's late 70s collaborations with Cluster, while others have more of the organic, acoustic qualities of his own ambient work – and the pairing of two thoughtful geniuses for one project is a perfect match. Titles include "For A New Design", "Generative Lounge", "Designer Piano", "A Warm Sweet Bed", "Beautiful Metals", "Bright Clouds Of Metal", and "Harmonic Guitar". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gil Evans, Jerry Dammers, & OthersAbsolute Beginners (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Virgin/Universal (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning its ears back in time – to a pre-mod era of the late 50s, which is the setting for Colin MacInnes original novel used for the film – portrayed here in a pastiche of vocal and instrumental songs that often have a fair bit of classic touches! Gil Evans was brought in for most of the instrumentals, and turns out some really sparkling charts that have all the charm of his best work of the 50s – and other contemporary artists do a pretty great job themselves – at least on the more jazz-based numbers. Evans numbers include versions of Charles Mingus' "Boogie Stop Shuffle" and "Better Git It In Your Soul", plus his own "Va Va Vaoom" – and the better jazzy tunes includes the excellent "Killer Blow" by Sade, plus "Have You Ever Had It Blue" by The Style Council, "That's Motivation" and "Absolute Beginners" by David Bowie, "Rodrigo Bay" by Working Week, "Selling Out" by Slim Gaillard, and "Riot City" by Jerry Dammers. 2LP UK version – with much more instrumental music than the American version!

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgLe Cinema De Serge Gainsbourg (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The coolest collection we've ever seen to focus on the soundtrack work of the great Serge Gainsbourg – and the most complete as well! The package really digs deep – and seems to offer up tracks from just about every single film that Gainsbourg was involved with – from his own compositions, to partnerships with greats like Alain Goraguer, Michel Colombier, and the mighty Jean-Claude Vannier – all of whom come up with very groovy, often funky instrumentation that rivals Serge's own releases! In fact, we might well even say that we find the Gainsbourg soundtrack material to be even cooler – as the films often gave Serge a chance to experiment, and try out new ideas he wouldn't do on his own records. This LP package is a great distillation of the larger CD set, with a focus on the grooviest cuts – and includes selections from the films L'Eau A La Bouche, Manon 70, Anna, Si Jetais Un Espion, Le Pacha, Slogan, Une Vueve En Or, and Les Chemins De Katmandou.

✨✧ John Gregory OrchestraSix Million Dollar TV Themes ... CD
Spectrum/Universal (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A flurry of great soundtrack thrillers – not presented here in their original versions, but in different recordings done by Brit Easy maestro John Gregory! The CD brings together titles from a number of different Gregory albums on London from the mid 70s – nearly all of which mix electric funky rhythms with tight big band backing – in a style that suits the spirit of the originals nicely, but which also often brings in some even groovier sounds to the mix! Tunes themselves are a nice mix of familiar and lesser-known crime and copy show themes – a total of 28 numbers that include "Columbo", "Kojak", "The Sweeney", "Johnny Staccato", "Banacek", "McCloud", "I Spy", "Six Million Dollar Man", "Hawaii 5-0", "SWAT", "M Squad", "Griff", "Mannix", and "McMillan & Wife".

✨✧ Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaOrfeu Negro (aka Black Orpheus) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Universal (France), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different! Expanded edition features 7 bonus tracks – 3 on CD for the first time ever – plus notes on the music, and a longer set of notes in French. CD

✨✧ Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes! CD

Michel LegrandLes Demoiselles De Rochefort (Young Girls of Rochefort) (French version) ... LP
Universal (France), 1966. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
One of our favorite soundtracks ever – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This double-length set presents the expanded original score – with many songs that were not on the original single version of the soundtrack, plus key bits of dialogue to help transition the tunes. Titles include "Chanson Des Jumelles", "Chanson De Delphine", "Nous Voyageons De Ville En Ville", "Chanson D'Andy", "La Femme Coupee En Morceaux", and "Marins Amis Amants Ou Maris".

✨✧ Michel LegrandLes Parapluies De Cherbourg (2LP version) ... LP
Philips/Universal (France), 1965. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Excellent French crime soundtracks from the 60s – handled up with a great mix of jazz, mod, and other groovy modes by the mighty Michel Magne! Fantomas was this creepy blue-faced master criminal – depicted in three French films at the time – Fantomas, Fantomas Se Dechaine, and Fantomas Contre Scotland Yard – all movies based on the much earlier series of crime books from earlier in the century 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", "Operation Artaban", "Ma Chere Helene", "L'Ultime Evasion", and "Fantomas S'Echappe".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeEnnio Morricone De Sergio Leone A Quentin Tarantino ... LP
Universal (France), Late 60s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A key look at two different slices in the mighty soundtrack career of Ennio Morricone – his legendary work for Italian director Sergio Leone, and his later re-use by Quentin Tarantino – the American director who was strongly influenced by Leone's work in the 60s! If you've never heard Morricone's music for the films of Leone, it's amazing – sounds that completely transform the work on screen, and which also helped push the genre of western forward a few notches too – a sonic landscape that's completely different from American western soundtracks, and filled with amazing sounds, unusual musical flourishes, and a level of scoring that's still light years ahead of its time! It's that quality that made the music so influential for Tarantino – who first re-used some of his favorite Morricone moments from the past, then had the maestro score some new music for films as well. That amazing link is presented strongly here – in a package that features selections from the Leone films For A Fistful Of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Good The Bad & The Ugly, and Once Upon A Time In The West – and Morricone music used in the Tarantino films Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, and Hateful Eight.

CAM/Universal (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Bruno Nicolai conducted this score by Morricone for the film The Sicilian Clan – a bit of a hit back in 1969, and a dark little gangster film! The soundtrack's got a number of different classic Morricone approaches – it starts with a power "boing" on the track's grooving opener, has some darker orchestral passages that glide along nicely, and mixes slow-grooving organ with a bit of whistling and more boings on other numbers! You'll love that boing – which really sets the whole thing off in a crazy mood – and you'll understand why Morricone's range of expression on the soundtrack makes it one of his biggest hits from the time!

A huge batch of music from the films of French comedic actor Louis De Funes – a talent not that well known on our shores, but who graced the screens overseas for more than a few years in the 60s and 70s – and who received some of the grooviest soundtrack backings at the time! Even if you don't know Funes, there's plenty to love here if you're a fan of Euro soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – as the music is mod, groovy, and always pretty darn playful – beginning with some comedic 60s modes at the start, then taking off into some even cooler styles as the 70s come in – as Louis receives instrumental accompaniment from some of the best of the French film score world – including Michel Magne, Alain Goraguer, Francois De Roubaix, Raymond Lefevre, Michel Polnareff, Vladimir Cosma, Georges Garvarentz, Georges Delerue, and others – all brought together in this massive collection of film music from the space of 20 years! The box features 126 tracks in all, a booklet of notes, and some bonus material on CD4 – a really great addition. And note that years back, there were some other De Funes collections from France – but those mostly featured his 60s material, and this one is the first to collect work from the 70s and early 80s.

The groove is wah-wah funk, fast riffing drums, tight "chase" theme grooves, and even a bit of soul – and tracks include "Monkey Hustle" by Jack Conrad, "It's Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" by GC Cameron, "Fat Poppadaddy" by Quincy Jones, "I'm Gonna Catch You" by The Hues Corporation, "The Boss" by James Brown, "Bus Stop" by Harry Betts, "King George" by Roy Ayers, "Give It To Me" by Isaac Hayes, "She Did It" by Barbara Mason & Monk Higgins, and "It Sure Is Groovy" by Gil Bernal. 13 cuts in all! (Funky Compilations, Soundtracks) CD
