A great album by Lee Morgan – and one not to pass up! The Rumproller often gets too easily lumped next to The Sidewinder – because of an obvious title and cover similarity to that hit record – but like that one, the album's far more than jazz cliche – and shows Lee Morgan ...

Lost genius from trumpeter Lee Morgan – a session recorded for Blue Note in 1967, but not issued until the late 70s – and even then, only for a very short time! The session has Morgan moving into that wonderful last stage of his career – working in tight formation towards a sound ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of our top 5 favorite Blue Note records of all time – a bold and powerful session from trumpeter Lee Morgan, but one that sat in the vaults for 15 years before release! The session was recorded around the same time as Morgan's hit The Sidewinder (which eclipsed its release at the time) ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A Capitol classic from Meli'sa Morgan – filled with sweet 80s grooves, and delivered with a style that's nicely lighter than some of her contemporaries! Morgan can still manage a nice hook when she wants, but the album's also got her working as a richer soul artist overall – eschewing ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A bit more rough-edged than some of their late 60s contemporaries, but a group who's definitely got some Sunshine Pop leanings! The group features mixed male and female lead vocals – often with one more strongly out front – and a sound that's sunny, but also pretty fuzzy too – ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A classic from the electro maestro – arguably the greatest American album from Giorgio Moroder! The set's got a great mix of disco and electronics that was years ahead of its time – and is surprisingly fresh and edgey, despite Moroder's fame over the years. Electronics are really at ...

Includes the great David Bowie song "Putting Out Fire" – plus lots of cool electronic moments from Moroder! (Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
A very cool Morricone soundtrack that's filled with lots of nice groovy bits and strange instrumentation – like electric sitar, keyboards, and cool manipulated vocals. The style of tracks range from cut to cut, but there's loads of nice ones on here, just in the style you look for when you're ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone —
Barbablu ... LP General (Italy), 1972. Near Mint- ...
A great Ennio Morricone soundtrack – also known to the world under the title of "Blue Beard". Richard Burton stars in this nutty film that features a host of lovely ladies – including Raquel Welch and Joey Heatherton – and Morricone's score is a lot moodier and darker ...

A lost treasure from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack written for a crime film starring Charles Bronson & Telly Savalas, and handled with all the spare subtlety of his best work! Bruno Nicolai's directing the orchestra on this one – and isolated instruments include ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great stuff – a very different Morricone soundtrack, with some incredible features! The score is for a dark film about a gangster avenging the death of his sister, and the music features a chorus of wordless vocals, sparse string passages, pipe organ, and some weirdly fuzzed-out keyboards ...

An obscure Morricone album that was recorded for the CEM sound library label in Italy. The record is mostly made up of tracks that Morricone did for the film Forza Italia – and these have a beautiful spare spacey sound, with light haunting melodies, in the tradition of his work on scores ...

The kind of sexy Morricone soundtrack we really really love! This overlooked gem is a sweet 70s side – written for a love story starring Marcello Mastroianni and Nastassja Kinski, and done with the lightly erotic touches that make even Morricone's prettiest melodies extremely haunting and ...

A landmark record – not only in the history of the western, but in that of Ennio Morricone! The soundtrack, written for this hit Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, is everything you'd want in a 60s western – driving orchestral passages, twanging guitar parts, and spooky little bits that ...

A cool album – featuring one side of the score to A Fistful Of Dollars and one side of the soundtrack of For A Few Dollars More! The songs are short, but tense – and mix plodding solo instrumentation with some sparer dramatic moments, creating a sublime tension that's unsurpassed in ...

An archetypal record all the way through – with some of the best Morricone western styles from the period – and still one of the greatest in its genre! To match the darkness of the film, Morricone's working here in a spare, stark mode – using bits of guitar and whistling to state ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A classic 60s soundtrack from maestro Ennio Morricone – and a set of music that's lasted a lot longer than the film – which starred John Cassavettes in the role of Machine Gun McCain!

One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later!

Groovy Morricone!

A surprisingly delicate late 70s score from Ennio Morricone – oddly auspicious, given that it's for a biblical era comedy – 1979's Il Ladrone! The sound has some of the elegiac qualities, with with lightly chiming strings and winds – but really has a unique feel thanks to what ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music!

One of the more obscure Morricone soundtracks from the early 70s – and one of the more unusual ones too!

(Original pressing! Cover has a bit of a seam split on the bottom, but is quite nice overall. Vinyl is nice, too – mostly just light marks from the old inner sleeve.)
A heavenly bit of work from Morricone! The album's a non-soundtrack – but it features singer Edda Dell'Orso interpreting some of his greatest themes of the late 60s and early 70s, in that wordless drifting mode that always made for his best soundtracks ever. There's a few instrumental tunes ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A collection of mostly earlier work – with material from Citta Violenta, Metti Una Sera A Cena, C'Era Una Volta Il West, Tepepa, Il Clan Dei Siciliani, and other films of the time. (Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
A groovy soundtrack to a film we'd love to see – an obscure thriller that starred Henry Fonda and Yul Brynner! The style of the music runs between the two poles of work from Morricone at the time – with some cuts that are spare, quiet, and very pretty, and others that are fuller, more ...

Classic Morricone – with a wonderful mix of tracks that are groovy, mellow, and sometimes a bit spooky!

Wonderful work from Ennio Morricone – an obscure soundtrack that we somehow missed for years and years – even though we've always been huge fans of his music!

A relatively dramatic score from Ennio Morricone– as you might guess from the military title!

Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too!

An unusual period score by Ennio Morricone – and a record that turned out to be one of his most successful of the 70s!

Groovy funky flute tracks, and similar to other instrumental albums on the Abet label – like work by Oliver Sain.

One of the great albums from Van Morrison during that incredible peak period – and a record that stands out as a less emotionally fraught effort after the heavy mood of Astral Weeks and the super far-reaching Moondance albums.
