Jack Ackerman/Teo Macero —
Faces ... LP Columbia, Late 60s. Sealed ...
Like the music in most of John Cassavetes films, this LP's a weird mish mash of styles, sounds, and snippets – but it's also got a very emotional edge to it, like all of Cassavetes' films. Jack Ackerman did most of the music, and Teo Macero arranged and conducted all of it. Weird stuff, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a hole in front. Cover has two cutout holes.)

One of the hipper sides of Broadway during the big hit years, even if it is pretty goofy! The musical features songs and routines based on the work of cartoonist/humorist James Thurber, set to jazz backings by Don Elliott. The whole thing's not as bad as you might think – and some numbers ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

House ... LP Columbia/G-Matics (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)...
Whimsical 70s soundtrack work from Godiego – very much in the same spirit as their catchy albums of the time! The tunes here are mostly instrumental, and have a weird mix of styles – a bit of jazz fusion here, some early electro pop there – and a few more tunes that maybe feel ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A killer 70s soundtrack from Herbie Hancock! The record takes the funky style that Herbie was cutting with the Headhunters, and blends it with some more sophisticated scoring that's top in the 70s action and blacksploitation modes – perfect for the dark theme of the movie's story. There's ... (Jazz, Soundtracks)read moreCD

Taj Mahal/Lightnin Hopkins —
Sounder ... CD Columbia/Varese, 1972. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
One of the rootsiest albums ever recorded by Taj Mahal – a set that begins with a song by Lightnin Hopkins, then seems to have Taj echoing a lot of the spareness of that work! The film's set in the 30s, and the music is very rootsy rural blues – with just Taj Mahal on vocals, steel-bodi ... (Blues, Soundtracks)read moreCD
A very cool mix of music – served up here on a soundtrack that's almost like having an audio version of a movie! The songs are all relatively short, and are the mix of jazz and lighter melodies that you might find in an early 60s Italian soundtrack – perfect music for the bittersweet ...

A totally cool little Japanese soundtrack from the 60s – done for a film that features a bunch of younger teens who head out the beach – and which is scored with music that perfectly fits the mood! There's a really great range of 60s film modes going on here – as some tunes ... (Funky 45's, Soundtracks)read more7-inch, Vinyl record
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 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A huge disco cash-in moment of the 70s – but a great one too, and a strong illustration of the power that Casablanca Records had in both the clubs and charts at the time! The movie and record were both a bit over-pressed upon release, but they nonetheless stand as a great snapshot of the way ... (Soul, Soundtracks)read moreCD
A classic album featuring music from The Sound Of Jazz – the legendary 1957 TV show that brought together some of the greatest talents then working in jazz!
