Band Without A Name, Sidewalk Sounds, & OthersThunder Alley ... LP
Sidewalk, 1967. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A wild little soundtrack that's equal parts biker and hot rod – a great rocking rarity that really bridges two sub-genres of rockish sounds in the 60s! The set's one of Mike Curb's great soundtracks for AIP – and like some of the others, it features a set of lesser-known talents coming together in a batch of tracks that works equally well as a rock album or a soundtrack! Some cuts have vocals, other feature fuzzy guitars riffing away instrumentally – a bit more surf/hot rod than psych, but still nice and trippy at times – and the lineup features the great "Theme From Thunder Alley" by Band Without A Name –plus "Pete's Orgy" and "Mud Fight" by The Sidewalk Sounds, "Calahan's Theme" by The Lorraine Singers, "When You Get What You Want" by Annette, and "Riot In Thunder Alley" by Eddie Beram – which is an excellent drum and sitar track that is worth the price of the album alone!

John Barry & Sophia LorenSophia Loren In Rome - Original Televison Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Despite the fact that Sophia Loren's name is prominently displayed on the cover, and despite the fact that she's pictured on the front, most of the record is instrumental work by Barry – although there is a vocal track or two by Loren! The sound is pretty groovy, and the tracks have a nice soundtracky feel that's in keeping with Barry's best work for films from the time. Titles include "The Aggressors", "Marcell", "Secrets Of Rome", and "Sophia". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Bowen & OthersVanishing Point – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Amos/Bell/Harkit (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $2.99
A real lost gem – finally reissued! The cover to this one advertises the more famous names that do tracks for the album – like Mountain, Delaney & Bonnie, and others – but the best tracks here are those by the great arranger Jimmy Bowen, who turns out some excellent complicated funky numbers that have a bit of a hippy soundtrack groove! Jimmy's work here is informed by a bit of rock scoring, but the overall feel is fast and funky – and his tunes include the great "Super Soul Theme" and "Freedom Of Expression". Another nice one is Jerry Reed's "Welcome To Nevada", which has a guitar solo by Jerry, but which is also nice and funky too! Other tunes include "You Got To Believe" by Delaney & Bonnie, "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain, "So Tired" by Eve, and "Runaway Country" by Doug Dillard. CD

Nicholas CarrasMissile To The Moon/Frankenstein's Daughter (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Monstrous Movie Music, 1958. Used ... $12.99
A pair of creepy soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is Missile To The Moon – a score that seems to end its object into space through an array of short, dramatic moments – which build in tension nicely with lots of dark corners and edges, before bursting forward with even more powerful energy as the score moves on! Nicholas Carras does a heck of a lot with a little – often on tunes that barely hit the one minute mark, but work together strongly here – on titles that include "Electric Violin", "Spider's End", "Spider Bait", "Cat Fight", "The Lido", "Cave Suspense", "Rock Man Rock", and "Moonshine". Next up is Frankenstein's Daughter – done in a similar old school style that twists and turns the strings and woodwinds in very dynamic ways – setting a spark that leaps into flame in a very short space – on titles that include "Lab Suspense", "Monster's Return", "Monster", and "Hit & Run". CD also features 6 very cool bonus tracks – with cool sounds on vibes, drums, and organ! CD

✨✧ Chubby Checker, The Dovells, Dee Dee SharpDon't Knock The Twist ... LP
Parkway, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Sort of a throwaway album of tracks designed to accompany the throwaway film of the same name – but also a pretty decent compilation of tracks by artists on the Cameo/Parkway label that features a few groovers by some of the label's soul artists. Titles include "The Fly", "Smashed Potates", "Bristol Stomp", "Tiwstin", and "Mashed Potato Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Gino ConteNell'Anno Della Luna (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
A very cool little soundtrack, and a set that's maybe a bit different than some of the bigger-name Italian film scores from the giants of the golden age! Gino Conte is a much more obscure figure, and he's clearly opening himself up to a range of sounds that really fit the shifting modes of the movie – in a way that maybe makes the whole record feel more like a sound library selection of jazzy instrumentals than a much more unified film score – with a great sense of variety that really keeps things interesting throughout! There's a few familiar names here – as Nora Orlandi and the 4+4 vocal group provide cool scatting vocals on a few tracks – while other moments are more instrumental, and work in a warmly funky take on bossa, Latin, and jazzy modes of the 60s – on titles that include "Nell'Anno Della Luna", "Tema Giochi", "Swing For Six", "Samba Querida", "Beat Mania", "Afro Swing", "Alla Brasiliana", and "Magico 2 E 2 Bis".

Bob Crewe/The GlitterhouseBarbarella ... CD
Dyno Voice/Varese, 1968. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
One of the most insanely wonderful soundtracks from the late 60s – filled with weird instrumental touches and sublimely groovy vocals that really match the mad spirit of the film! Although Bob Crewe's best known for his work as a producer for bigger names in the 60s, he really shines here on this set – stepping out with a mad mix of styles that blends 60s adult easy with spacier themes – using primitive electronics and odd studio tricks to capture the cartoony space landscape of Jane Fonda's world in the move. The Glitterhouse sing on a few cuts, in a great mod rock soundtrack mode – and the pacing, timing, and overall presentation of the music here is really great – an audio document that almost feels like a "sonic film" in and of itself! Tracks include "Barbarella", "Ski Ride", "Hungry Dolls", "Entrance Into Sogo", "The Pill", "Smoke (Viper Vapor)", "I Love All The Love In You", "The Labyrinth", "The Sex Machine", "The Chamber Of Dreams" and many more. CD features a total of 22 tracks in all! CD

Frank DeVolHustle/The Longest Yard (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $22.99
Two sweet 70s soundtracks from Frank DeVol – both done for classic Burt Reynolds film! DeVol's usually in sleepier territory – at least on his soundtracks of the 60s – but on Hustle, he really lives up to the 70s spirit of the film – and tips in a bit of disco and a bit of jazz from time to time – grooving up his bigger orchestrations in ways that aren't entirely funky, but still a great change from before – even on some of the mellower moments. Titles include "Psychedelicatessen", "First Muzak", "Theme From Hustle", "Transistor Source", "Scanty Land", "Make Up", "Brandied", "Two Faces", "Race Against Time", and "No Name Gun". The Longest Yard has a score that's maybe more in the serious DeVol side of the spectrum – with a few country twangs here and there, to emphasize the southern prison setting of the story – used playfully, at a level that shows DeVol's experience with a richer narrative. Titles include "Caretaker's Death", "Muck & Mire/Muck & Mirth", "Rocky Mountain Heart", and "Sneaky Man/Walking With The Warden". CD features bonus tracks – three more from Hustle, including an alternate of "Psychedelicatessen", and "A Man & A Woman" – and four more from The Longest Yard. CD

George DuningWorld Of Suzie Wong ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good- ... $5.99
A strange film, but a great soundtrack! George Duning came up with an excellent batch of jazzy tracks for the film – and most of them swing hard and tightly, with strong jazzy solos, in a manner that's similar to some of Mancini's best scores of the late 50s. A number of tracks have odd "Eastern" touches in the melody – mostly through the use of percussion – and this makes the jazzy tracks even nicer, and gives them a strange feel that's similar to some of the "east meets jazz" albums on Verve during the 60s. Titles include "Aberdeen Caper", "Gwenny Lee", "At The Namcock", "Groove For Suzie", and "Hit The Road To Dreamland". Towards the end of the soundtrack, some cuts have a more orchestral feel, and this is in keeping with the change of mood in the film. LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Edmunds, David Essex, & OthersStardust – 44 Original Hits From The Soundtrack Of The Film ... LP
Stateside (Japan), 1974. Near Mint- 2LP ... $9.99
An unusual record – maybe cooler than you'd expect from the cover! The first three sides feature mostly older rock and soul tunes from the early 60s – but the fourth side features a fictitious band named The Stray Cats – which includes Dave Edmunds, Keith Moon, and David Essex, hitting an old school rocker vibe. Edmunds and Essex produced the record, too – and Essex stars in the film with Adam Faith. LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni FerrioEl Varon Rebuscante (aka Il Maschio Ruspante) ... LP
Cinevox (Spain), 1973. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A richly-crafted soundtrack from Gianni Ferrio – presented here in a rare Spanish pressing! The styles of the music use a fair bit of woodwinds in lightly whimsical passages – offset by other numbers that emphasize themes with fuller orchestrations – but in ways that are still usually driving and dramatic, and which have a nice undercurrent of irony – all of which makes for a wonderfully deep sound overall, with lots of variety and expressiveness throughout the record. Giuliano Gemma sings on the tracks "Ballata Burina" and "Voi Siete Un Fiore" – and other tracks include "Sexy Sax", "Quando Eravamo Piccoli", "Romolo Il Ruspante", "Una Dichiarazione D'Amore", "Ringo Amore E Gelosia", and "Una Breve Storia D'Amore" – although all titles are listed with Spanish names for this pressing.

Gianni FerrioIo Emmanuelle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $22.99
A really beautiful little soundtrack – and one that's quite different than all of the other late 70s scores that circulated under the Emmanuelle name! This film came out years before that big cycle of sexploitation movies – and also was not part of that series at all – and while the soundtrack certainly has some of the erotics you might expect, there's also a richer, more dynamic sonic range in place – right up there with some of the most explosive moments of genius from Gianni Ferrio at the end of the 60s! Each tune seems to have a slightly different vibe – some thoughtful, some dark and brooding, and some sweetly light – often with piano or organ, but also sometimes using a voice or chorus – but in ways that are again different than the usual, especially the more familiar Morricone/Dell'Orso style. There's a fragile sense of beauty that you'd never get in the later Emmanuelle scores – and titles include "Osmosi", "Analisi", "Contestazione", "Micropsichia", "Caos", and "Ricerca". CD also features five bonus tracks too! CD

Hugo FriedhoferOne Eyed Jacks ... CD
Tsunami, 1961. Used ... $11.99
A compelling soundtrack for one of the more ill-fated westerns of the 50s! Friedhofer really moves beyond familiar stereotypes here – using offbeat orchestrations, often heavy on woodwinds and solo instrumentation, to create a nice sense of place and space – almost exotic at points, then underscored by bolder dramatic themes that build as the soundtrack unfolds. There's almost as much drama in the music as you'll find on the screen – and titles include "Seduction", "Contrition", "Toast To Friendship", "Kiss Of A Scoundrel/Pursued By Rurales", and "Finale".

Vince Guaraldi/Rod McKuen/John Scott TrotterBoy Named Charlie Brown – Complete Score (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy/Kritzerland, 1964. New Copy ... $19.99
An incredible addition to the world of Charlie Brown soundtracks – and a record that's different both from the jazz album of Vince Guaraldi tunes issued by Fantasy, and the album of Rod McKuen and other instrumental tunes issued by Columbia! Instead, this one goes right to the source tapes for the original cartoon, instead of featuring later re-recordings – and the result is a batch of music that's wonderfully fresh, and which offers up a sublime mixing of both Guaraldi and McKuen modes! There's certainly lots of jazzy tunes by Vince – those cool piano cuts that he did so famously for Peanuts shows – but served up here in versions that are different than the ones on record, and interspersed with some larger orchestrations from John Scott Trotter – and the McKuen tunes are different than those recorded for Columbia – as they sometimes feature vocals by the characters, mixed with a few sung by Rod – and also a few instrumentals too. Plus, the whole thing comes with 10 more bonus tracks – a whopping 32 titles in all – with alternate and unused versions. Titles include "Percussion Swinger/Baseball Theme", "Blue Charlie Brown", "I Before E", "Champion Charlie Brown", "Linus & Lucy (Big City)", "Charlie Brown & His All Stars", "Bus Wheel Blues", and "Failure Face".

Jimmie Haskell & By Dunham/Frankie AvalonI'll Take Sweden ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
What a movie! Bob Hope, Frankie Avalon, and Tuesday Weld on the same screen! But even better, the great Jimmie Haskell handled the music – and he comes up with some excellent touches that make the record groove a bit more than many of its contemporaries. Jimmy contributes some cool instrumental tunes that pop organ, guitars, and drums around other instrumentation – and also brings a nicely syncopated approach to vocal numbers by members of the cast, giving them the punch of some of his work for Reprise at the time. Frankie sings "I'll Take Sweden", "Would Ya Like My Last Name", and "The Bells Keep Ringin"; Tuesday sings "Give It To Me"; and Bob does "Nothing Can Compare With You" over instrumentations that sound a lot like Dean Martin's at the time. Instrumental titles include "Watusi Jo", "Kissin Polka", "I'll Take Sweden", and "The Bells Keep Ringin". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Jobim, Vinicius De Moraes, & OthersGarota De Ipanema (Precio Economico) ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A stunning lost bossa nova soundtrack! The score was penned for the 1967 film Garota De Ipanema (Girl From Ipanema), and although you've heard some of the tracks before in other versions, the overall album is very nice – and is a wonderful tribute to the early days of bossa nova! Jobim and Vinicius perform, as well as Baden Powell, Tamba Trio, Nara Leao, Elis Regina, Ronnie Von, Chico Buarque, and Quarteto Em Cy – and titles include "Por Voce", "Chorino", "Aria Para Se Morrer De Amor", "Rancho Das Namoradas", and "Tema Da Desilusao". We think some of the material might have popped up on other albums from time to time, but there's still enough stuff here that we hadn't heard elsewhere – and that we like a lot!

✨✧ Quincy Jones/Mel CarterEnter Laughing ... LP
Liberty, 1967. Sealed ... $3.99
A pretty sweet – and nearly forgotten – Quincy Jones soundtrack from the 60s – done for a film based on Carl Reiner's book and play of the same name, directed by Reiner himself! The film's set in the 30s, so there's a few period songs on the album that have an older jazz feel – including two with vocals by Reiner – but the film was produced in the 60s, and the best tracks have some really nice Quincy Jones jazzy touches – with some especially nice woodwind passages that dart around magically! Mel Carter sings 2 versions of the title cut "Enter Laughing", and other tracks include "David Dooze It", "Exit Crying", "Vienna Wails", and "I Hear You Calling". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene KrupaGene Krupa Story – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Slammin soundtrack to this bio-pic which starred Sal Mineo as Gene Krupa, and which features music by Krupa himself, plus Anita O'Day and Red Nichols. Pretty trad and swing all around – but there's a lot of great drum work by Krupa, particularly the type that often got featured in the live scenes of the film. In a way, the whole thing's a lot more storming than some of Krupa's other Verve work, which tends to be more retrained in the drum department. Titles include "Cherokee", "Spiritual Jazz", "I Love My Baby", "Royal Garden Blues", "Song Of India", and "Finale", which features a drum duet with Shelly Manne.

A lesser known score by the French soundtrack genius! The sound isn't as totally intense as Lai's best work of the time – like A Man & A Woman or Live For Life – and a number of the tracks are straight orchestral pieces, but there are a few very nice cuts with a great groovy sound to them – swinging heavily in a 60s mode, with slight French touches that sound pretty nice. These cuts include the titles "Boutique Music", "Party Music – Show Out", "Keep It Cool", and "Radio Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel LegrandLes Demoiselles De Rochefort (Young Girls of Rochefort) (5CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1966. New Copy ... About September 10, 2017 (delayed)
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". Plus, this 2 CD version of the score includes 9 extra bonus cuts – including 5 from the "orchestral version" of the score, plus some other instrumental jazz versions by Michel Legrand! The whole package is great, and the booklet's filled with nice photos from the very groovy movie. A treasure, and one that we're extremely happy to be stocking! CD
