One of the best Nino Rota scores for Fellini – and one that really recaptures all of the magic of the best early ones from the 60s! The orchestral passages are incredible – with a mix of strange instrumentation (vibes, organ, etc), and wonderfully spare arrangements. The other tracks ...

A pretty darn great movie – from what we remember – with a pretty nice soundtrack! The film a madcap portrayal of a bunch of Americans trying to tour Europe in one week – and although it's pretty zany, the music is remarkably sensitive – scored by Walter Scharf in a mixture ...

Playtime ... LP United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A wonderful selection of instrumental themes from the films of Jacques Tati – the closest thing to a full soundtrack you'll ever find for any of his movies!

A stunner of an album from Cecil Taylor's early days – for many reasons, but also for the wild cover, which has a couple meeting in a dark alley in a cheesy photo shoot! (Just imagine if Hat Hut or Leo tried that today!) This long-out-of-print session features 3 early trio tracks – ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, on King. Back cover has some very light aging – front cover looks great.)

Phaedra ... LP United Artists, Mid 60s. Used ...
Out Of Stock
A really dark little soundtrack – penned by Mikis Theodorakis for Jules Dassin's remake of the Phaedra myth!

The album's got loads of scatting vocals by his great group I Cantori Modern – alongside upbeat chase tracks, crime jazz, and even a ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A nicely rootsy set from the team of Ike & Tina Turner – an album that's almost more "down home" than any of the records made by the pair in their roots! The style here is that "back to the country" sound that was favored both with mainstream rock and soul-revival ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Ike & Tina Turner Revue shakes the foundation at Carnegie Hall on April Fools Day, 1971!

War ... LP United Artists, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ...
A wonderful first solo album from War – a set that has them breaking away from their early partnership with singer Eric Burdon – and finding an even better groove in the process! The vibe here is hipper, and even more righteous than before – some of those great jazz currents on ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio!

A tremendous live set from Randy Weston – and one of the best illustrations of the unique approach he brought to modern jazz at the end of the 50s!

(Japanese pressing, with obi! Cover is great, save for some light age spots on back. Front looks wonderful.)
A late 70s family group soul effort – clearly cut in the style of the successful Sylvers, and following a similar blend of uptempo modes designed to help the sweet soul family approach move into the crossover dancefloor. The group's got 10 members (man, where did their parents ever find the ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
