Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
The funkiest version we've ever heard of this great Bruce Lee soundtrack – one that brings together all the sweet instrumental moments by Peter Thomas, with sound that's much better than any other reissue! While previous versions have taken the music along with the dialogue, this gem of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1961. New Copy
Very rare early work from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – music composed for an Italian TV show at the start of the 60s – served up in a mix of jazz and other groovy styles! The real surprise here is that most of the tunes are vocal numbers, sometimes sung by artists you'll know from ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1981. New Copy
A surprisingly nice score, done for a relatively goofy Italian comedy at the start of the 80s – set inside a Chinese restaurant in Rome, and handled with some definite Eastern touches in the instrumentation – but all mixed up in funky cop show sort of backings – almost an early ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Dark genius from the legendary Ennio Morricone – one of the most important film composers of the 20th Century, and a master in just about any style! The work here represents a shift that Morricone made into darker modes as the 70s approached – sounds that stepped off from some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Francis Lai/Brigitte Bardot

Les Petroleuses (red vinyl pressing)
LMLR (France), 1971. New Copy
Les Petroleuses has a nice variety of sounds – some of the slinky, sexy, Euro-styled numbers you'd expect from Lai in the early 70s, and from a film starring Brigitte Bardot – mixed with other tracks that seem to foreground a version of the old west that's a bit playful – using ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trunk (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
The great Ron Geesin is a man of many talents – UK studio genius, ace composer, arranger, and more – with ties to worlds that include film music, sound library work, easy listening, and even collaborations with Pink Floyd! The music here is all from films by underground director ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1971. New Copy
An obscure French period comedy from 1971 – with a surprisingly groovy score from Michel Polnareff! The film starred Luis De Funes and Yves Montand, and although Montand sings on a track or two, the main groove of the set is in the mode of Polnareff's groovy work from the late 60s. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henryk Kuzniak

Dzieciol
GAD (Poland), 1970. New Copy
An overlooked Polish soundtrack from the start of the 70s – scored for a comedy, but put together with a huge range of unusual and striking sounds! The record begins with a catchy theme – the sort that you'd hear in a Neil Simon comedy a few years later – but by track three, ... CD

Piero Umiliani

Paranoia
Four Flies (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic music from the great Piero Umiliani – one of Italy's greatest soundtrack composers, and definitely at the top of his game here! The music was recorded right around the same time as Umiliani's legendary work for Sweden Heaven & Hell – and there's a similar mix of styles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar/Decca (Italy), 1964. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Fantastic early soundtrack material from Ennio Morricone – penned for one of the "mondo" films of the time – a 1964 shockumentary on the state of Italian youth! As such, it's got lots of short jazzy tunes that run at a pretty fast groove, ostensibly to show the dissipation of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold
Funky 70s crime cinema sounds from Italy – done for giallo, police thriller and gore maestro Umberto Lenzi's La Banda Del Gobbo, by Franco Micalizzi – a frenetic, funky and action packed score that hardly lets up for a moment! We knew we were in for a treat from the second we put it on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1983. New Copy
There's a real Escape From New York look to the cover here – and the music by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis has a very strong John Carpenter vibe – lots of spare, stark numbers that shift between electro funk and moodier numbers – really setting up the action with a dose of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
A spooky little soundtrack, with some slight erotic moments as well – all scored for a schlocky Italian film starring an ex-patriot Farley Granger! The story centers around an investigation of an earlier rape and murder – and the music does a good deal to underscore the mix of sexual ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. New Copy
A sweetly sexy soundtrack from the great Berto Pisano – one that really lives up to its image on the cover! There's a gently grooving feel to the music that's right up there with the best erotica work from Morricone – handled by Pisano with light strings, keyboards, bits of flute, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A sexy little soundtrack from Nico Fidenco – penned for this mid 70s film about a teenage prostitute who works under the nickname "Blue Jeans"! The music's got a wonderfully whimsical feel – not as electric or Euro-erotic as you might expect from the cover, and often put ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy 2CD
A mid-80s comedy, but one that has some surprisingly strong moments – some jazzier numbers and funkier moments that have instrumentation that's much more 70s overall! A few tunes carry through that love of a disco theme that arose on the Italian scene a few years before – but others ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs
Morricone fans – this one's got it all! The music is completely wonderful throughout, and a great mix of everything that makes Ennio Morricone so tremendous – a bit of bossa here, some funky bits there, and even some spookier slow passages with a nice atonal feel! The main theme of ... CD

Teo Usuelli

Il Fischio Al Naso
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A strange little soundtrack for an equally strange little film – an offbeat late 60s Italian comedy with music to really match its mood! The set begins with a very cool vocal tune – sung by the rock group Le Pecore Nere, with this onomatopoeic sort of vibe – then the set mixes ... CD

Berto Pisano/Franco Pisano

La Svergognata/Anima Mia
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. New Copy
A sweetly sexy soundtrack from the great Berto Pisano – one that really lives up to its image on the cover! There's a gently grooving feel to the music that's right up there with the best erotica work from Morricone – handled by Pisano with light strings, keyboards, bits of flute, and ... CD

Piero Umiliani

Quando La Coppia Scoppia
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
An early 80s soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – but one that seems to echo some styles from deeper in his past, including some of of the jazz elements he used in his early days – and some of the more unusual sonic textures he created for his sound library projects in the 70s! ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Italy meets Australia – in a lovely set of grooves written by Piero Piccioni for this little-seen Alberto Sordi film from 1971! The sound is as sunny as you'd expect – with the Piccioni bossa groove used to set the scene for postwar Australia – sometimes coming across with ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CD
A gem of a package from one of our favorite film composers ever – a huge 10CD assortment of music from the earliest years of Michel Legrand – a set that shows just what an amazing career he was already having in Paris before his mid 60s rise on the international scene! The scope of ... CD
MCA/Geffen, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Go back to the future once again – with a sparkling set of 80s tracks that includes a fair bit of standout rock and pop material! Big highlights here are the tunes "Power Of Love" and "Back In Time" by Huey Lewis & The News – and other 80s tracks include "Ti ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD
A wonderful celebration of the long-running Ecoutez Le Cinema series – a book-styled package that brings together dozens of rare and classic soundtrack tunes, plus a big booklet of notes! The CDs feature titles from across the series – 2CDs' worth of music from dozens of films, handled ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1966. New Copy 3CDs
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! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1968. New Copy 2CD
A 2CD set of music designed to accompany Japanese animation that starred "the little Norse Prince Valiant" – the cut lil' guy pictured on the cover, who gets some very action-packed accompaniment here! Most tunes are short and lively, and almost echo an older cartoon mode that you ... CD

Ennio Morricone

Senza Movemente
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
Beautifully slow-building work from Ennio Morricone – caught right at that near-perfect start of the 70s point when he was a master of understatement and spare musical elements! Many numbers begin with a sound that's often very spare – sliding out of the darkness sometimes with just a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Four rare soundtracks from Italian composer Franco Bixio – appearing here on CD for the first time ever! First up is Deserto Di Fuoco – a score that begins with a dreamy wordless vocal theme, but then quickly moves into tenser moments – a kind of low-end, brooding approach to the ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1969. New Copy
A Japanese soundtrack from the late 60s – but one that's scored in some of the best bossa and jazzy modes that you'd find in Italian work of the time – plus maybe some of the more whimsical styles that American composers like Johnny Williams or Neal Hefti were using on their comedies ... CD
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A stunning set that's packed with some of our favorite music from the soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – that special style he created in the late 60s, as a way of blending together influences from jazz, bossa nova, and other instrumental styles – hardly the sleepy lounge music of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riz Ortolani & Nino Oliviero

Mondo Cane (with bonus tracks)
Sugar/Decca (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the first big international soundtracks to come from the Italian scene in the 60s – the start of a great run that would continue through the decade, although maybe not with results as strongly as this! The score is for a strange documentary-like film (the title means "World Gone ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A really cool collection – one that brings together key songs from a variety of different films from France – some of them the originals from the movies, some of them other very cool interpretations! These aren't instrumentals, as almost all of them have vocals – and the package ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kapp/La La Land, 1970. New Copy 2CD
A really fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – maybe better this time around than the images on the screen for some of his other westerns of the period – more proof that the maestro was always willing to rise above, and give his best no matter what the setting! The music begins with ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1963. New Copy
Think the French new wave had a lock on jazz soundtracks? Think again, because the Japanese scene of the 60s was full of them – including this sublime set from 1963! Most numbers here are jazz tracks played by a great small combo – one that's got tremendous energy all the way through! ... CD
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – one of those extra-special soundtracks of his that really seem to elevate from the rest – with a sublime blend of elements that's completely unique! The sound here is in the best Mondo Morricone mode – often slowly stepping, kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy
A tremendous little police soundtrack from 70s Italy – one with plenty of Morricone-like touches, but that's A-OK with us! Luciano Michelini does a great job here of juxtaposing stark sounds with sweeter ones – particularly some great piano that's isolated nicely above the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 1975. New Copy LP & CD
One of the coolest Italian soundtracks we've heard in a long time – a wonderful set of tunes that moves from slinky, to easy, to groovy, and beyond! The tunes start out bubbling very spare and slow – with floating piano, moog, and other nice bits – and as the record progresses, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pathe/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic soundtrack that's maybe even more legendary than the unusual animated film for which it was created – a funky French classic that stands strong in the best tradition of work by Serge Gainsbourg, Jean-Claude Vannier, and Michel Colombier! No surprise, Alain Goraguer is part of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beverly Hills/Real Gone, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic sexy soundtrack from Bill Loose – scored for a Russ Meyer Sexploitation film, but handled with a care that goes way deeper than you might expect! Bill brings in some nice jazzy moments on organ and guitar – and there's also some Sunshine Pop-styled vocals at points – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Graeme Miller & Steve Shill

Carrier Frequency
Finders Keepers (UK), 1984. New Copy
A rare soundtrack from an unusual UK stage production of the early 80s – presented here on record for the first time ever!

Abkco, Late 50s/Early 60s/2021. New Copy
An unusual blend of classic country and original music – served up here in support of the Netflix film of the same name! We really dig the classic cuts – work that includes "Young Love" by Sonny James, "Hillbilly Boogie" by The Delmore Brothers, "The Three ... LP, Vinyl record album

Basement's Glare

Flesh Contagium
Digitmovies (Italy), 2020. New Copy
A contemporary horror score, but one that's handled by Basement's Glare with a nice mix of modes – including some darker electronic textures that feel like they're borrowed from the farther reaches of 80s indie soundtracks! Make no mistake, this isn't the easily-done keyboard score that some ... CD

Giovanni Fusco

I Cosacchi
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy
An early score from Giovani Fusco – done for a late 50s film about Russian Cossacks, and scored with some of the same mix of modes you'd find in some of the blood and sandals epics from the time! By that, we mean that the score has a blend of familiar postwar orchestrations with more exotic ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1980. New Copy
We can always trust Nico Fidenco to give us a sexy soundtrack – and this time around, he definitely does that, but also adds in a fair bit more too – nicely balancing some of the erotics of the film with some of the darker passages in the story! If you only know Fidenco from ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
Great Morricone music for this legendary Italian western – a film that was first advertised with the line "When you've waited 15 years to a kill a man, it's a shame you can only kill him once!" The music here shows the same sort of determination as that statement – a driving, ... CD
La La Land, 1967. New Copy
A pair of overlooked Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is The Detective – a soundtrack we've been trying to find for years – given the way the music works perfectly in the surprisingly dark film! Goldsmith uses lots of jazzy tones in his scoring ... CD
La La Land/Universal, 1966. New Copy
A really great soundtrack from Jack Marshall – the groovy arranger you might know from a host of Capitol Records albums in the early 60s – stepping out here on a film that marked the movie debut of Herman Munster! The music echoes some of the themes you'd hear on the Munsters TV show ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the more obscure entries in the caveman comedy genre that cropped up briefly at the end of the 60s – a set of very groovy tunes for a movie that has the females going on a sex strike to keep the men from fighting! There's very little in the music to tie the film to Lysistrata – ... CD
