John BarryDove (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool little score from John Barry – quite different from his usual soundtrack material, with a breezy sort of style that really fits the spirit of this sailing film! Instrumentation is often a light blend of strings and keyboards – a bit of electric harpsichord or melodica at points, which is especially cool – plus some occasional woodwind moments at more dramatic moments, often used to underscore the mood of a piece. Barry's still got that great sense of space and timing he developed at the end of the 60s – a real musical maturation that almost echoes some Italian styles at points. Titles include "The Motorbike & The Dove", "Alone On The Wide Wide Sea", "Porpoise Escort", "Xing Mombila", "After The Fire", "Patty & Robin", and "Hitch-Hike to Darwin" – plus "Sail The Summer Winds", sung by Lyn Paul. CD features lots of bonus tracks too – 8 unreleased mono score tracks, and 3 more stereo tracks from the album sessions too. CD

Konrad ElfersFuneral In Berlin (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Intrada, 1967. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the grooviest Michael Caine spy films of the 60s – given an equally groovy soundtrack by Konrad Elfers! We don't know Elfers from other work of the time, but this album's a real standout – not the usual spy sort of work, although still with some great jazzy touches at times – including some wonderful reed passages – which are then mixed with some of the more tense, thriller-style elements that are served up with larger orchestrations – but always given this odd, offbeat style that reflects the unusual feel of Caine's films as Harry Palmer in the 60s. Titles include "The Funeral", "Fate Of Two Pawns", "Skating Rendezvous At Europa Centre", "Palmer Meets Samantha", and "Checkpoint Charlie". New version features better mastering than the previous CD, new notes, and four bonus tracks too! CD

Jerry GoldsmithOur Man Flint/In Like Flint ... CD
MGM/Intrada, 1966/1967. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of spy spoof gems – back to back on a single CD! First up is Our Man Flint, which features excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with some spookier instrumental touches – either on electric guitar, sax, or a "tortured" Thomas organ and a Solovox – and the overall feel of the album is on a par with the best work of the sort by Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro! Titles include "Doing As The Romans Did", "All I Have To Do Is Take A Bite of Your Apple?", "Tell Me More About That Volcano", and "Our Man Flint". In Like Flint continues Jerry Goldsmith's great run of grooves for the Flint spy spoof films of the 60s – working in a style that's a lot more complex than Lalo Schifrin or John Barry, but still every bit as groovy! Goldsmith's got this excellent style of swirling together strings, instrumental solos, and lots of cool offbeat elements – all with a sound that's often jazzy, but pretty unusual too – maybe in the best territory of Piero Piccioni over on the Italian scene! Arrangements are by Marty Paich and Warren Barker – who bring their most playful modes to the album – and titles include the vocal numbers "Where The Bad Guys Are Gals" and "Your Zowie Face", plus "Ahh Yer Father's Bob-Lip", "Mince & Cook Until Tender", and "Lost In Space".

Jerry GoldsmithTrouble With Angels (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mainstream/Intrada, 1966. New Copy ... $19.99
A pretty straight soundtrack – for a pretty weird little movie, one that was a late directorial effort by Ida Lupino, and which starred Hayley Mills as a bad girl in a nunnery, and Rosalind Russell as one of the nuns! Most of the tunes on the set are fairly orchestral, but the title track – "Trouble With Angles" – is done in a swinging 60s pop mode, with vocals by a female group called The Devils, sounding a lot like the Mike Sammes Singers – and we mean that in a groovy way! Other tracks include "The Dancing Lesson", "First Warning", "A Pot Of Tea", "Welcome To St Francis", and "Rachel Says Goodbye". And this CD edition has way way more than the original album, or any other reissue versions – a stunning 40 bonus tracks, which includes loads of short cues from the film, many of them very groovy!

✨✧ David AmramYoung Savages – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked jazz soundtrack from early 60s Hollywood – and some amazing early work from composer David Amram! Amram's always had an ear for higher-concept versions of jazz – but his approach here is a wonderful blend of modernity and spontaneity – just right for the sort of energy of the film, and it's JD "young savages" theme – and played by a very hip group of musicians that include Harold Land or George Barrow on tenor, Teo Macero on alto, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Amram himself on piano – playing in this very cool Monk-like style. Some cuts are more jazz combo modes – like the long jazz numbers, including "Harold's Way Out", "True Blue", and "Las Muchacas Delicadas". Other cuts have more of a soundtrack approach, but still with great jazz elements – and these include "Rooftops", "Help", "Subway Sounds", and "Theme From The Young Savages". CD

✨✧ Henry ManciniBreakfast At Tiffany's – Original Film Score ... CD
RCA/Intrada, 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If you think you know the soundtrack to Breakfast At Tiffany's, then guess again – because this massive expanded version features the full film score – with way more music than was ever on the original album, or later CD releases! The 38 track set features all the great Mancini melodies – like "Moon River", "Sally's Tomato", and "Latin Golightly" – but also has lots of other wonderful incidental music, often underscored with jazz – plus some excellent elements from the soundtrack too, including a few variations on the "Moon River" theme, one with Audrey Hepburn and guitar! A lost treasure, finally out in a great package – with titles that include "A Lovely Place", "After The Heist", "Meet The Doc", "Exceptional Person", "Where's The Cat", "Just Like Holly", "Paul Meets Cat", and "Piano Practice No 1".

✨✧ Henry ManciniDays Of Wine & Roses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Intrada, 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – and a record that showed the world that he could do a lot more than just crime jazz and groovy tunes! The title track is a well-known gem from the Mancini songbook – perfect for the bittersweet, melancholy of the film – and a great start for Mancini's music – which first shows some of the joy of the couple in the narrative, then moves into much bluer, deeper territory. There's an undercurrent of sadness that haunts even the more sprightly numbers – and some of the best instrumentation is handled by west coast jazzmen who include Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Harry Klee and Ted Nash on reeds, Bob Bain on guitar, and Larry Bunker on percussion. The music was never properly issued on record at the time – and this CD features very detailed notes, lots of images, and 27 tracks that include "Cocktail Hour", "No Guts", "A Sad Pop", "I Want To Go Home", "Man Meets Girl", and "Hi Fi".

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinAva Collection (Walk On The Wild Side/Carpetbaggers/Caretakers/Baby The Rain Must Fall/To Kill A Mockingbird/Movie & TV Themes) ... CD
AVA/Intrada, 1962/1963/1964/1965. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of 60s soundtracks from Elmer Bernstein – all originally issued by the indie Ava label, where Bernstein was one of the biggest stars! Elmer had already had a number of years experience working in Hollywood – including some classic late 50s scores that perfectly mixed jazz with larger orchestrations, in a style he explored even more fully on some of the best material here. Yet some of the other soundtracks show Bernstein's increasingly good ear for a dramatic moment – the kind of under-done passages that really had a way of doing a lot with just a little – lessons learned from jazz, then recast back onto larger arrangements, but without any of the Hollywood bombast of decades before. These moments really make the soundtracks sparkle – bits of illumination that resonate strongly throughout the 3CD passage, and draw some surprising links between all the different film scores presented within. The set features five full soundtrack albums – Walk On The Wild Side, The Carpetbaggers, The Caretakers, Baby The Rain Must Fall, and To Kill A Mockingbird – plus the additional Movie & TV Themes record by Bernstein.

✨✧ Henry ManciniOnce Is Not Enough ... CD
Intrada, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Well, we can never get enough Henry Mancini – and here he delivers a lush, lovely soundtrack for the Hollywood adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's Once Is Not Enough! It's a mid 70s work, but the feel is nicely in line with some his more elegant 60s soundtracks – with lightly soaring strings and a fairly intimate feel, lightened nicely by mellow keys and chimes. Titles include "Something For Alexis", "One More Jolt", "Mad Mike", "No Coming Back", "Nowhere To Go", "The Woman I Love", "No Coming Back", "The Soap Trick", "Holly", "Only In Movies" and many more. This Intrada version is loaded up with bonus material, too – with some additional edits that ultimately didn't make it into the film – and nearly 80 minutes of music in all! CD

✨✧ Maurice JarreMandingo/Plaza Suite (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Intrada, 1971/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusually-matched pair of soundtracks from Maurice Jarre – both of which still have the composer working in a very creative way! Mandingo is a film set during the slavery years of the US south, and Jarre blends together lush instrumentation and American themes with a few more pointed, scene setting numbers – as well as two vocal tracks by Muddy Waters! Overall, the score's got that feel of rising Americana that graced some of the bigger historical epics of the period – and the CD features 20 tracks from the score, plus three more bonus titles too. Plaza Suite is a completely different film – a Neal Simon comedy done with a warmly jazzy score – very much in the best 70s adult style of the time, with a core theme that wraps through the whole thing nicely as it shifts and turns – often with a piano or organ line in the lead, some of which were played by Clare Fischer. There's only a few tracks from Plaza Suite on the CD, but they're all mighty nice – almost with a Mancini-esque 70s vibe! CD
