Richard Rodney Bennett/Roy BuddBillion Dollar Brain/Final Option ... CD
MGM/Kritzerland, 1967/1982. Used ... $24.99
Two lost scores – packaged together on a single CD! First up is Billion Dollar Brain, composed by Richard Rodney Bennett – done for an obscure late 60s spy thriller starring Michael Caine, and a really dark soundtrack! Bennett did a fair bit of jazz arranging in his time – and the score to this one mixes some dark dramatic bits with some lighter motifs that feature good work on woodwinds and percussion. The main theme has some nice floating piano over the top, and a few other tracks have a cool whistling suspense theme – but things also really change up a lot nicely, and the whole thing almost has an audio collage feel at times, with its sense of variety. Titles include "Love Scene", "Hoe Down", "Anya", "The Church", "Skidoo", "Ambush", "Car Chase", and "Billion Dollar Brain". Roy Budd handles the score for Final Option – an early 80s spy thriller, but one that gets some beautiful Budd treatment that's right up there with Roy's famous soundtracks of the 70s! The instrumentation often has an airy, eerie feel – slowly cascading keyboards, with almost a hint of Italian space between – used with a lot less schlock than some of the tinnier, cheesier action scores that were more of the mainstream at the time. A few tunes were composed and conducted by Jerry & Marc Donahue – and titles include "Who Dares Wins", "Straight Ahead Blues", "Nature Of The Beast", "Reds Under The Beds", "Hi Jack (part 1)", "American Medley", and "SAS Or Nothing".

Sallie BlairHello Tiger! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $19.99
Sultry vocals from Sallie Blair – one of the hipper singers of her generation, and an artist with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Blair's a bit bluesy, a bit soulful, but ultimately a jazz singer at heart – and her already-cool style gets some sweet extra help on this session from Neal Hefti, who brings a great sense of punch to his arrangements – almost a Basie bounce at points, but with some Henry Mancini touches too – especially in the album's great use of electric guitar and Latin percussion. Most numbers have a slinky, sexy sort of groove – and titles include "That Old Black Magic", "Witchcraft", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Doncha Go Way Mad", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "Early Winter", and "I'm Through With Love".

Frank DeVolDirty Dozen ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1967. Used ... $14.99
A classic 60s soundtrack from Frak DeVol – filled with bold themes, dramatic action, and some of the most sharp-edged scoring Hollywood could offer at the time! The WWII setting of the film makes for a fair bit of military moments in the music – but there's also some surprisingly tender spots too – penned by DeVol for more intimate moments in the film, or tense bits during the bigger action. This massively expanded package features way more tracks than the original MGM soundtrack – 35 numbers in all, running for nearly 80 minutes in length – all wrapped up in a detailed booklet filled with photos – in the usual high quality we've come to expect from Film Score Monthly! Titles include "Move It Out", "The Builders/Train Time", "Latrine Frolic", "Shave Time", "Switch Hitters", "Shell Game", "Para Drop", "The Chateau", "The Rope", "Jeff Left", "The End", and "Einsam".

Lee HazlewoodVery Special World Of Lee Hazlewood ... CD
MGM/Water, Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
Lee Hazlewood's world is always a very special one for us – filled with great songs, amazing production, and those icy vocals that Lee sang unlike anyone else! This album may be one of Hazlewood's greatest from the 60s – at least among his US recordings – and it's a near-perfect session with arrangements from Billy Strange, often with a slight bit of sinister guitar in the mix, but also some sublime strings too – used sparely and carefully to create a sense of deepening darkness! Lee's at his sharpest, wittiest here – singing some of his most sophisticated songs to date, but also throwing in a few nods towards his earlier pop productions. Titles include "Not The Lovin Kind", "For One Moment", "Sand", "Your Sweet Love", "My Autumn's Done Come", "I Move Around", "So Long Babe", "Bugles In The Afternoon", "My Baby Cried All Night Long", and Lee's wonderful parody remake of "These Boots Are Made For Walking".

Gerry Mulligan & Andre PrevinJazz Soundtracks (Subterraneans/I Want To Live) ... CD
MGM/Gambit (Spain), 1958/1959. Used ... $9.99
2 great jazz soundtracks from the west coast scene of the 50s – back to back on one CD! First up is The Subterraneans – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel of the same name! Previn's working here in a mode that's sometimes lush and emotive, but often more upbeat and jazzy – and performed by a host of great jazz players that include Gerry Mulligan, Carmen McRae, Dave Bailey, Russ Freeman, Art Farmer, Art Pepper, and Jack Sheldon! There's loads of numbers that have a dark, moody finish – mixing together jazz soloing and strings, in a style that really gets at some of the sadness of the story. The CD features the full original soundtrack album – 12 tracks that include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue". Next up is the small combo recording of tracks from the legendary jazz score to I Want To Live! Although not featured that prominently in the film, the band of Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Bud Shank, and others were a pretty tight little group – even though it was strange to see this west coast white bread group playing in scenes of jazz/crime/evil! The record's a nice one, though, and features some of the livelier playing you'll hear from the players. Tracks are long, and titles include "Black Nightgown", "Night Watch", and the raging "Theme From I Want To Live". CD

Lalo SchifrinWrath Of God ... CD
MGM/Film Score Monthly, 1972. Used ... $14.99
Robert Mitchum as a cigar-smoking priest who totes a machine gun – the cover here is almost enough to make us buy the album, but the music is even better! The soundtrack is a later MGM score by Lalo Schifrin – penned for a slightly comedic action film set in Central America, and done with a fair bit of Latin touches in the instrumentation. Elements of a variety of different Latin modes trickle through more standard soundtrack work from Lalo – jazzy at times, more serious at others – but almost always served up with groovy touches that make this one especially appealing to our ears. There's some nice snakey flutes that slide through some of the bigger backings – and sparer tracks are often heavy on percussion – making for a nice blend of moods that serves up a freshly sounding track with nearly every entry on the album! CD features 23 tracks in all – including 2 bonus tracks – and titles include "Chela/Tacho", "Wrath Of God", "Mascaras", "Plegaria", "Jurado", "Nacho", "Musicos", "Emmet", "La Iglesia", "Campanas", and "La Confesion".

Stephen Sondheim/Ken ThorneFunny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (Deluxe edition) ... CD
MGM/Ryko, 1966. Used ... $12.99
A great early moment for composer Stephen Sondheim – but a score that's made even groovier here by the film work of Ken Thorne! Thorne brings out a sprightly quality to the music that's maybe missing from the original stage score – and his few instrumental passages are especially great, with some exotic instrumentation on reeds, light strings, and percussion – in a way that's almost a parody of some of the Italian gladiator and heroic scores of the time! Titles include "Roman Embassy", "Lovely", "Tintinabula's Dance", "Lovely", "Riot At The Funeral", "Erroneous Return/Orgy Music", and "The Dirge". CD

Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... CD
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1969. Used ... $9.99
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years! This album's one of the best of the bunch – as it features pianist Monty Alexander joining the pair, bringing in some warmly soulful elements on piano – in ways that are a great bridge between his work for MGM and MPS! The set also features great tenor from Teddy Edwards – blowing with a deep tone and a sharp edge – and in addition to vibes by Jackson and bass by Brown, the group also features Dick Berk on drums. The set was recorded live at Shelly's Manne-Hole – and titles include Alexander's "That's The Way It Is", plus "Blues In The Basement", "Wheelin & Dealin", and "Tenderly". CD

Charlie Shavers & Ray Bryant QuartetComplete Recordings Vol 3 (Like Charlie/Excitement Unlimited/At Le Crazy Horse Saloon) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1963/1964. Used ... $9.99
The 3rd and final chapter in Lonehill's exploration of the Charlie Shavers/Ray Bryant team – a pairing that's never gotten its full due until now, and which is featured in a great set of previously unreissued material! This set's got a bit less Bryant than the others – and only features 12 tracks with the Shavers/Bryant group – pulled from the 1960 album Like Charlie, a subtle gem that easily matches the strength of Shavers' other MGM work at the time. The remaining bulk of the CD features material from an unusual 1963 large group album called Excitement Unlimited – one that features Shavers working with an octet that includes Billy Byers, Jerome Richardson, Budd Johnson, and George Barnes. The tunes on these sides have a more tightly arranged approach – still with a strong focus on Shavers' fluid solo lines, but set up in a way that's a bit less relaxed than some of the Bryant albums in the series. The remaining 4 tracks on the CD complete the series' presentation of the Le Crazy Horse Paris recordings from 1964 – and the set features a total of 29 tracks that include "Carioca", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "Opus 5", "Night In Tunisia", "School Days", "Tenderly", "But Beautiful", "Jada", "Blues For Choo Loos", "In The Still Of The Night", and "Bossa Nova Petite".

Way before he was a country crooner, Conway Twitty started out as a hard-edged rockabilly artist – as you'll hear on this collection of all his early work for Sun Records, Mercury, and MGM! 8CDs, a huge amount of music, and a great booklet of notes! CD

Most folks only know Sheb Wooley from his novelty hits – or maybe his comedy work under the name of Ben Colder – but he could also be a hell of a country singer when he wanted, as you'll discover in this massive set! The box brings together almost all of the straight country sides that Sheb recorded – from postwar hillbilly, to top-shelf 50s sides with MGM on the west coast, to some surprisingly great 60s material that often comes across with Wooley's trademark wit! The box features a whopping 113 tracks in all, and the usual great Bear Family presentation – which means copious notes as well. CD
