Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
One of the more unusual Morricone scores of the 70s – penned as part of a collaboration with director Maximilian Schell, and done in ways that are a bit different than some of the maestro's Italian work! There's plenty of voices at play here – the lead of Edda Dell'Orso, and harmonies ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar/Decca, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy
A really fantastic collection – one that gets at the full range of jazz-based sounds in Italian soundtracks during the 60s – served up here on a set of tracks that go way past the obvious! This isn't a "best of" set – and instead, it digs very deeply, and even features ... CD
CAM/Sugar, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Haunting horror work from the great Bruno Nicolai – an album that's got some wonderfully-crafted themes mixed with some lighter, breezier numbers – almost in a Rosemary's baby sort of mode! Bruno really gets to show off both sides of his talents here – and comes up with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy
One of the sweetest, funkiest Italian soundtracks we've heard from the 70s – originally written for a sci-fi TV show by Enrico Simonetti, and filled with some really great work on keyboards! Despite the spacey setting of the show, a lot of the tunes here are nicely straightforward – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo Savina

Lisa & The Devil
Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy
A seductive little soundtrack, done for a mid 70s film that also circulated as The House Of Exorcism – but which has a much better score here in the original version! By the time of the film, Carlo Savina was no stranger to the world of film scores – but he's also clearly pushing ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1984. New Copy
The cover's creepy, but the soundtrack starts with a beautiful theme – a spare piano number that sets things up nicely, before the music moves into more of the 80s electric horror styles that you might expect! Yet throughout the set, there's these moments of gentle soulfulness that really ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A totally fantastic soundtrack from the 70s Italian scene – one that's filled with all sorts of sweet electric touches from Lallo Gori – including lots of keyboards over some pretty funky tracks! Gori did some more standard scoring in earlier years – but here, he's right up there ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth

They Live (black & white galaxy vinyl pressing)
Death Waltz, 1988. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Amazing work from John Carpenter – still a dedicated soundtrack composer long into his film career – and always a master of spare, spooky electronics! The instrumentation here is a bit evolved from some of his earliest classics – different keyboards and electronics developed ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Quartet (Spain), 1982/1993. New Copy 3CD
A mighty hefty package – one that features expanded soundtracks for the final three Pink Panther films in the original run, plus bonus tracks too! First up is Trail Of The Pink Panther – a mighty nice Henry Mancini soundtrack – penned for the final Pink Panther film to star Peter ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy 2CD
Beautiful grooves from the legendary Piero Piccioni – a set that's a great follow-up to some of his famous 60s work – touched with a few more sexy 70s touches than before, but in a way that's still extremely groovy! There's lots of electric piano lines on the set – almost a ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD
Sweetly funky and very slinky – this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A great little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – with music that sports vocals both by I Cantori Moderni and Edda Dell'Orso – both of whom are working in prime Mondo Morricone modes! There's a dreamy feel to the best numbers on the set – heard most perfectly in the classic "G ... CD

Ennio Morricone

I Due Evasi Di Sing Sing
Quartet (Italy), 1964. New Copy
An early soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – and a more unusual setting than some of his famous later work of the 60s and 70s! The movie is a prison comedy, and is handled by Morricone with style that's heavily in the crime jazz side of the spectrum – maybe more in the mode of Piero ... CD
Colgems/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1980. New Copy
A striking soundtrack for this Italian horror film – not really a zombie flick exactly, but one with a very similar bent – scored by the great Stelvio Cipriani with loads of cool keyboards and rhythms! The horror mode's definitely of the John Carpenter generation – which means ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
A real standout in Ennio Morricone's roster of great work from the time – a record with all the best elements in place – including vocals by Edda Dell'Orso and orchestrations by Bruno Nicolai – but an overall format that's a bit different than usual! Most of the tracks here are ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
The cover's creepy enough – and the music is too – an instrumentally complicated score – one that features heavy guitars one minute, then strings, then stark, spare instrumentation the next – including weird bass bits and electric harpsichord passages that are very nice! ... CD

Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)

L'Amica (with bonus tracks)
Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Luiz Bacalov – a set that's filled with sex and slink, but which also has a great sense of groove as well – blending bossa jazz, mod moments, and all the best styles of the late 60s Italian scene! The music is mostly acoustic, but has a really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni

Sangue Di Sbirro
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated ... CD

Alexandre Desplat & Others

French Dispatch
Abkco, 2021. New Copy
A completely charming soundtrack for an equally charming film – a set that mixes together the instrumental music created by Alexandre Desplat for the Wes Anderson film The French Dispatch, and a number of the full songs that were used as snippets during the movie! Desplat's compositions are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. New Copy
One of the first great horror soundtracks by the legendary Goblin – penned for the wonderful follow-up to Night Of The Living Dead! The music is a wonderful mix of Goblin's cool keyboard lines with some fuzzier guitar bits – those rockish elements that the group virtually introduced to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/We Want Sounds (France), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great Morricone soundtrack for a Jean-Paul Belmondo thriller – a score that starts out spare and brooding, then builds nicely as things move on – with lots of cool bottom-end sounds that make the whole thing really move up from the depths! Some tunes echo the sweeter side of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Something weird, and something very cool too – a set that brings together a whole host of strange and unusual tunes from the glory days of exploitation cinema! These cuts are all from a time when the b-movie underground was playing it fast and loose – trying to get more folks into the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
A career-spanning collection of work from one of our favorite Italian soundtrack composers of all time – the fantastic Piero Piccioni, presented here in a wealth of material pulled from the vaults of Cam! Piccioni was one of the most important Italian film music talents of the 60s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trunk (UK), 1970. New Copy
A pretty fantastic soundtrack from a very unlikely source – a British film based on a 19th century story by Herman Melville, but recast with a scene in London of the swinging 60s! As such, the movie gets a superb score from the great Roger Webb – jazz pianist and sound library genius, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ariete/BTF (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A great score for an incredible film! Teorema is a strange and wonderful early film by Pier Paolo Pasolini – and about half of the soundtrack was written by Ennio Morricone, in a mixture of dark, edgey themes, and some more groovy tunes with a great late 60s Italy feel – an early ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1955. New Copy 2CD
One of the first really amazing scores that Nino Rota penned for Fellini – the masterful soundtrack to 1955's Il Bidone! Rota's working here in that wonderful theme-based mode he used for some of Fellini's later masterpieces – one that features standout musical passages that dance ... CD
Rustblade (Italy), 1986. New Copy
That's a very 80s image on the cover, and there's a very 80s feel to the record – a set that's awash in the kind of cool keyboard work you'd expect from Claudio Simonetti, often served up with a lean style that owes plenty to the legacy of John Carpenter! The keys can move from deep and ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Music Box (France), 1972. New Copy
A real European classic from Ennio Morricone – one of his fantastic soundtracks for French director Henri Verneuil – who always seemed to manage to bring the best out in the maestro! As with some of Morricone's other music for Verneuil, there's an approach here that almost doesn't even ... CD
All Score Media (Germany), 1971. New Copy
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 ... CD
All Score Media (Germany), 1966. New Copy
The great Peter Thomas has scored some amazing German films and TV shows over the years – crime stories, sci fi, and lots lots more – including a lesser-known stab at western soundtrack work with material like this! The music here is very different than Italian western scores of the ... CD
Epic/Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
A pair of rare soundtracks from Philippe Sarde – both of them done for Italian director Marco Ferreri! First up is Liza – a sensual score that does a really great job of using older modes of instrumentation to convey some of the slinky 70s eroticism of the movie! Unlike other scores ... CD

Philippe Sarde

Le Chat/Le Train
Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
Two early 70s scores from Philippe Sarde – both from a time when he was really at the top of his game! Le Chat is a soundtrack that's done with the rich amount of feeling that can make some of the best Sarde scores so special – larger orchestrations, but peppered with solo piano by ... CD
Quartet/CAM (Spain), 1969. New Copy
Our favorite album ever from French soundtrack maestro Philippe Sarde – and maybe one of our favorite French soundtracks too! There's a really special quality to this music – as rich as some of Sarde's other scores, but maybe linked more towards the new wave of subtle expression that ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A tremendous score from Italian composer Riz Ortolani – one that really falls on a much groovier side of his spectrum than some of his bigger international hits of the 60s! The music gets tense at times, but always seems to resolve quickly with some jazzier modes – occasional basslines ... CD

Piero Umiliani

Orgasmo/Paranoia
Quartet (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy
A sweetly seductive little soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – a set that's right up there with some of his late 60s best – and which serves up some wonderful instrumental tunes in a sweet mix of bossa nova and jazz! Despite the explosive nature of the title Orgasmo, you might think of ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1978. New Copy
One of the more contemplative 70s soundtracks from Ennio Morricone – almost a step towards the direction he'd take with some of his big international hits of the 80s! The music is often pensive – with some beautiful spare woodwind moments amidst light larger orchestrations – ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1978. New Copy
Rare soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone, recorded for an Italian TV series that didn't get any play on this side of the Atlantic! The music has a surprisingly haunting quality, especially for television – almost the darker side of Morricone that you'd hear in the earlier part of the 70s, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Augusto Martelli

Nella Misura In Cui
Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy
A sweet little entry in the small Italian genre of "erotic films on island location" – served up with this fantastic blend of 70s instrumentation and older exotica percussion! The setting is the Caribbean, but that's more in fantasy than the musical styles within – as Augusto ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Magne

Les Tontons Flingueurs
Le Pop Club (France), 1963. New Copy
Very groovy work from the mighty Michel Magne – an early 60s soundtrack on the French scene, and one that showed that music like this was soon going to rival all the cool changes going on in Italian cinema too! There's a nice blend of jazzy and mod elements going on here – older ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone

Vamos A Matar, Companeros
Beat (Italy), 1970. New Copy
A soundtrack as striking as it's cover image – and a real lesser-known western gem from Ennio Morricone! The music balances a broad number of styles here – from darkly chanting vocals, to warmer mellower strings, to elements that more playfully evoke a sense of time and place – ... CD

Fred Myrow/Jerry Fielding

Soylent Green/Demon Seed
Film Score Monthly, 1973/1977. New Copy
A pair of soundtracks for two of the creepiest horror movies of the 70s – back to back on a single CD, and given the top-shelf Film Score Monthly treatment! First up is the score for Soylent Green – a mix of very moody, unusually-toned passages that are mixed with some mellower, ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1963. New Copy
Two very early soundtracks from legendary Polish modernist Krzystof Komeda – both very different than his 60s work for Roman Polanski, but equally striking overall! The work for Mam Tu Swoj Dom is performed on short tracks handled by different instrumental groupings – with piano, flute ... CD
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
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A great entry in the Kriminal series of films – one that features some wonderfully groovy work from Piero Umiliani! The music here is Umiliani at his most playful – rooted in jazz, but with warmer touches from bossa and other mod 60s Italian styles too – sometimes set to wordless ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
Some of the grooviest film music we've ever heard from Nora Orlandi – a nicely varied set of tracks done for a late 60s film that features four different sexual adventures! Given the story shifts, there's also a mood shift in the music – upbeat and jazzy at some points, mellow and ... CD
