Monte Stella (Italy), 2000. New Copy (reissue)
A later Ennio Morricone film score – one done around the turn of this century, and with a nicely understated vibe that marks most of the maestro's music from the previous decade! The score features solo piano and violin – the latter by a few different musicians – but almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
Saravah/Core Port (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy
A huge lost chapter in the career of the legendary Francis Lai – the man who gave the world classic film scores for Un Homme Et Une Famme, Love Story, and many other movies – heard here in a rare set of singles he did for the Saravah Records label in Paris! A number of tracks here echo ... CD
DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD
5CDs, and a set of great soundtracks to early films by director Federico Fellini – music that forever set the standard for a new generation of film composers! First up is La Strada – the brilliant mid 50s filled that starred a young Giulettia Masini as one of the saddest clowns ever to ... CD
Death Waltz (UK), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Seminal Italian horror soundtrack music from Goblin! By this point, the band had completely evolved from a prog-oriented jazz rock band, into a group that was very well suited to handle a diverse array of movie scores and horror themes. The keyboards are still at the core – and there's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Naked City
Doxy, Early 60s. New Copy
One of the greatest albums of crime jazz ever! But even cooler than that, the whole thing's got narration by John McIntire, very much in the spirit of the crime drama Naked City – filmed in New York in verite style. The music is in that late 50s TV crime mode, but the narration really makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet Smell Of Success (with bonus track)
Decca/Verve, 1957. New Copy
A jazz soundtrack double-header – one that features both the small combo and larger band version of the soundtrack to The Sweet Smell Of Success! Part of the CD features the Chico Hamilton Quintet's album of music – a wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s. The combo was a key ... CD
Sugar/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic funky soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – quite different than some of his bigger hits of the 60s, and full of heavy basslines and lots of great drums! The style here is in the best cop/crime mode of the time – but has even more blacksploitation grit at the bottom than the usual ... CD
Mercury/Real Gone, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Very trippy-dippy psychedelic work – written for the soundtrack to Timothy Leary's weird LSD film of the late 60s! Maryvonne Giercarz composed the music, and plays it with a small group that includes her on "Veena", an "ancient Indian instrument", along with guitar and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1962. New Copy 2 CDs
Beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy
Lively sounds from Ultime Grida Dalla Savana – a 70s exploitation film that continued the "wild world" tradition of films like those in the Mondo Cane series! The setting here is the African savanna, but the music is mostly orchestral – a combination of driving themes that ... CD
Soundtracks
GAD (Poland), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy
Excellent sounds from Zbigniew Gorny – a Polish composer who worked in the soundtrack field for just over a decade, but made some wonderful music during that time! Gorny's big decade was the 80s, but his sounds here have a depth that's different than most American and European material from ... CD
Musique Classee X
Les Disques Du Culte (France), Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold
That's a pretty racy cover – but the music inside is a lot more cool and classy – a set of sweet jazz funk numbers put together by the famous French maestro Alain Goraguer, with lots of nice electric touches! You may know Goraguer from his 60s work with singers – including France ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1964. New Copy
A wonderful lost Nelson Riddle soundtrack – scored for the "gentlemen criminal" show The Rogues, which ran briefly on NBC during the mid 60s – starring Charles Boyer, Gig Young, and David Niven! The work is some of our favorite by Riddle during the period – lightly ... CD
Butler (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD
The great John Barry as a young man – stepping out here on songs that are a lot more rocking than his later fame as a soundtrack composer – served up in a massive 3CD box that collects together singles for Parlophone and Columbia, plus some early rock songs from films! The style here ... CD
American Dreamer – Original Soundtrack
Cinewax, 1971. New Copy
A really wild little album – featuring songs from the documentary about Dennis Hopper from the early 70s. The songs are mostly in a rootsy, country-ish mode – as you might guess from the participation of and title track by Gene Clark – although some of them also get a bit tripper ... CD
Party
RCA/Elemental (Spain), 1968. New Copy
A great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Modern Harmonic, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Un Italiano In America
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A cool Italian soundtrack from the late 60s – penned by Piero Piccioni with a great mix of sensitive and swinging themes! The instrumentation often features lush orchestrations, used in relatively lean ways – never as heavily romantic or sentimental as you might find in American films ... CD
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Calamo (with bonus CD)
Aris/Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A pretty fantastic soundtrack to a movie that looks pretty darn spooky – not in the usual Italian horror way, but more in an earthy, ritualistic sort of mode! As part of that vibe, the music's got this great current of sex – some funky elements mixed with grittier sounds – often ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lingua D'Argento
Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Alberto Baldan Bembo isn't the biggest name on the Italian scene – but he's forever been remembered for this totally groovy album from the 70s – the kind of record that really matches the highest standards of the time! Bembo has this way of mixing floating instrumental currents with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Conversation
Trunk (UK), 1974. New Copy
David Shire's wonderful score to The Conversation – a subtle mix of jazz and darker sounds that's one of the best things about this incredible film! Shire's definitely one of the cooler cats of American film scoring of the 70s – and with a groundbreaking project like this, he really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the more unusual soundtracks ever done by Armando Trovajoli – for an equally unusual film that starred Monica Vitti as the legendary heroine Modesty Blaise! The modes here are sometimes as groovy as the Modesty Blaise comic, but other times have a nicely slinky, sexy sort of vibe ... CD
Beat (Italy), 2018. New Copy 2CD
A recent live performance by Italian soundtrack legend Fabio Frizzi – recorded in America as part of a tour designed to support Frizzi's surprising return to the spotlight in recent years! In fact, the Frizzi heard here is even more in the spotlight than ever before – still using the ... CD
Camille 2000
Blind Faith (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An ultra groovy soundtrack and one the rarest records ever by the hip Italian group! Like many of I Marc 4's other legendary efforts, it was originally issued as a sound library release – but this one was actually composed as a crazy 1970 film soundtrack. It's got some wild use of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savana Violenta (with bonus tracks)
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1976. New Copy
A mighty 70s soundtrack from the duo of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – scored for a mondo film set in Africa, but done with a style that's often like some of their more familiar Italian material of the time! Action, drama, and comedy each get musical time in the spotlight – and the ... CD
Sea For Yourself (with bonus DVD)
Rural/Modern Harmonic, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic little surf soundtrack record – and one that's very different than both the guitar instrumental and jazz-based albums that showed up earlier in the genre! This one is much more like some of the Australian rock scores that started to show up at the end of the 60s – very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warner/Rhino, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that ... LP, Vinyl record album
XL, 2018. New Copy
A really great soundtrack to the remade version of Suspiria – a film that was famously scored by Goblin in the 70s, and which might have an equally great match here in the music of Thom Yorke! Yorke's sounds here are more extended and even spookier – electronic, but often abstracted ... CD
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
Cinevox/Death Waltz, 1975. New Copy 2LP gatefold
One of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1981. New Copy
One of the first true moments of genius from producer Hal Willner – the man who helped open up so many ears to diverse music with projects like these! The album's a tribute to the music of Nino Rota, as used in the films of Federico Fellini – but rather than just be a slavish remake, ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1984. New Copy Gatefold
A remake of the earlier Don Camillo film from the 50s – done here with music that's got an even more sprightly feel! You might know Pino Donaggio from darker, more serious soundtracks – but here, he uses a mix of keyboards and woodwinds to craft lots of groovy tunes that are in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sacred Bones, 2018. New Copy Gatefold
The legendary John Carpenter first made his mark with Halloween – both as a director, and as a composer – the second a role for which he's finally gotten the attention he deserved! The original Halloween soundtrack was a masterpiece in understatement – spare instrumentation, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Logan's Run
MGM, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Did filmmaking ever get any better than this? We'd be hard pressed to think so – what with Michael York and Farrah Fawcett-Majors running around in the future, living in a hedonistic world in which you can have anything you want, until you turn 30, and are executed! Great stuff – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music Box (France), 1970. New Copy
Mellow magic from the great Francis Lai – a relatively obscure soundtrack, even if it was issued during a time when he was hitting great fame for Hollywood scores! The style here is in the best subtle modes that Lai reserved for his French productions – heavy on keyboard lines, ala ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
That's a pretty groovy little cover – and the album's filled with very groovy sounds from the great Fred Bongusto – always one of the more enigmatic composers of the golden age of Italian soundtracks! Fred's 60s work always had a bit of a bossa touch, and that's definitely here at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Classic Italian cop work from the mighty Stelvio Cipriani – one of the few Italian composers who can work in a heavily electric mode, yet still get the richness of that scene's more acoustic years! The music is heavy on guitar and keyboards – but not in the later way inspired by Goblin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
A pair of Carlo Savina western soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is La Dove Non Batte Il Sole – an unusual light-hearted Lee Van Cleef western, scored by Savina in a mix of modes – with some surprisingly great numbers that move along more like 60s Italian love ... CD
Salvare La Faccia
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A very cool Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one that's filled with plenty of "shake" and "psichedelico" tracks – which make for lots of beautiful moments! The music here is on that cusp between spooky and groovy that Ennio Morricone did so well at the time – ... CD
Sono Sartana – Il Vostro Becchino
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Vasco Vassil Kojucharov never contributed that much work to the Italian scene of the 60s, but he really knocks it out of the park for this obscure western soundtrack from the end of the decade – music that's full of action right from the very first note, and which opens up and inflects the ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 4 CDs
A huge set of music – one that's maybe a bit different than you might expect! Right from the start, Stanley Kubrick was a groundbreaking director – one who had a great sense of music on the screen – sometimes from film scores that he'd commission for his movies, sometimes from ... CD
Fantasy, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A really great record that definitely lives up to its title and cover – a set that's sort of a cool 70s take on exotica modes from years past! The music here is almost all performed by Giuliano Sorgini – who plays drums and lots of percussion, then adds in electronics too – using ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A sweet sexy jungle soundtrack – issued for a film that appeared with many different erotic titles – but only this one great set of grooves from Stelvio Cipriani! Given the island setting of the narrative, there's a good amount of acoustic percussion in the mix – congas and other ... CD
Grazie Zia
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, ... LP, Vinyl record album
