Touch Sensitive (UK), 2018. New Copy
David Holmes has given us some groovy, upbeat soundtracks over the years – but this set is a fair bit more moody than before – yet with an approach that's very much in keeping with the Mosaic show from HBO! The songs are mostly quite short, and played by an ensemble that uses acoustic ... CD
We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1970. New Copy
The film is a legendary directorial effort from Jean-Pierre Melville – but the music is equally great, too – handled by the excellent Eric Demarsan, and performed by a wonderful lineup of French jazz musicians! Tracks are relatively short, but have a great sense of feeling – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Because (France), 2018. New Copy
A beautiful little soundtrack for this contemporary spy show – one with a very retro vibe, which is nicely matched in the music by Nicolas Godin! However, make no mistake – Godin isn't going for "easy" spy themes that are slavishly retro, ala campy 60s – instead, he ... 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
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1959. New Copy
The world at night, seen through the eyes of one of the grooviest soundtrack composers of all time – the mighty Piero Piccioni, whose mix of jazzy and moody styles is perfect for this documentary soundtrack about nightlife at the end of the 50s! There's plenty of jazz-based styled on the ... CD
Camille 2000
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1970. New Copy
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 ... CD
Le Saut De L'Ange/RAS
Transversales Disques (France), 1971/1973. New Copy
A beautiful score from the legendary Francois De Roubaix – a soundtrack that has a bit less electronics than some of his famous records, but a sound that's completely amazing all the way through! Francois has this incredible ear for sonic textures – so that he can pull out unusual ... 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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A surprisingly groovy soundtrack to a cheesy little Sinbad-esque film – served up with a really thumping electric groove that's mixed with more exotic sounds – almost a disco generation take on the earlier style of Italian adventure soundtracks! The work was done Guido & Maurizio ... CD
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An excellent 70s Italian film score – penned for a political thriller, but handled with a fair bit of sweet and lovely themes! The album's one of the best we've ever heard from Francesco De Masi, and it nicely mixes his usual strong talents for action with a bit more warmth that befits the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Orzowei Il Figlio Della Savana
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy
An Italian action score from the golden era – but one from the 70s, too – which means that there's some surprising funky and glammy touches in the music! The style here is certainly different from the earlier blood and sandals generation – as the music often uses electric bass, ... CD
Dov'e Anna
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A set that was originally created in the prime electric years of the great Stelvio Cipriani – but one that has him working on acoustic piano throughout – often using weird effects and production elements to change up the sound of the instrument! There's a great main theme to the ... CD
Touch Sensitive (UK), 2018. New Copy
David Holmes has given us some groovy, upbeat soundtracks over the years – but this set is a fair bit more moody than before – yet with an approach that's very much in keeping with the Mosaic show from HBO! The songs are mostly quite short, and played by an ensemble that uses acoustic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1963. New Copy
A pretty dramatic score from Carlo Rustichelli – quite different than some of his better-known comedic work of the 60s, and even different than some of his action movies too – but a record that also has some really wonderful moments! There's a bit of jazz in the mix from time to time ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1963. New Copy 2CD
Nino Rota's impressive score for the Luchino Visconti film The Leopard – sounds put together with enough of an epic feel to match the sprawling story of the movie! The music is more orchestral and serious than some of Rota's Fellini work from the same period – a masterful bit of ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1973. New Copy 2CD
A gem of a record from the legendary Nino Rota – one of his best scores for director Federico Fellini – a bit later than some of their 60s classics, but equally great! The music is filled with Rota's trademark interweaving of dominant themes and lighter moments – the kind of ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1961. New Copy
A stunning jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – much more like some of the classic French new wave jazz scores of the late 50s than some of his groovy, mod sounds to come later in the 60s! The instrumentation here is a beautiful mix of piano, bass, vibes, and some occasional stronger horns ... CD
Saimel (Italy), 1960. New Copy
A very early soundtrack from maestro Piero Piccioni – and one that's overflowing with jazzy touches too! The music here is for a film about youth – as you'd guess from the cover – but the score has a richer, more mature quality – with lots of those great modern jazz ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A slinky score from Armando Trovajoli – done for a film that was also titled The Bishop's Bedroom – a place where some of the slinky action in the film must have taken place! There's an occasional period vibe to the music – a few older jazz touches here and there – but most ... CD
Cinewax/Light In The Attic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Jerry Goldsmith's score for one of the greatest movies of the 70s – done with this spacious mix of jazzy elements that's completely sublime – and a bit like some of Johnny Mandel's best scoring too! The film is set in the 30s, but Goldsmith uses a lot of mature 70s elements in his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Qualcuno Ha Visto Uccidere
Beat (Italy), 1973. New Copy
The only thing greater than a Stelvio Cipriani soundtrack is a Stelvio Cipriani soundtrack from the early 70s – because that was the time when the maestro was really at the top of his game, and doing a wonderful job of blending electric and acoustic instrumentation! The music here is a ... CD
Dagored (Italy), New Copy
One of the moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Manuel De Sica – a set that really fits in with the darker range of the Italian horror scene, filled with dark tunes that have an overall bleak quality – strings and woodwinds coming up with the meanest notes they can find, laying ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy
A wonderful score by Bruno Nicolai – one that follows strongly in the mode of work from the time by frequent collaborator, Ennio Morricone! The approach on most tracks is spare and moody – using a lot of harpsichord over light orchestrations – and going for a tense feel that ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
10th Victim/That Man In Istanbul
Mainstream/Intrada, 1965. New Copy
A pair of rare Mainstream Records soundtracks from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! First up is The Tenth Victim – also issued in Italy as La Deccima Vittima – one of our favorite soundtracks of all-time!! Piero Piccioni's score for this one is an insane mix of weird ... CD
Beat/CF Soundtracks (Italy), 1967/1968. New Copy
Two really great soundtracks in the early run of the Italian Supermen comedies – both much nicer than some of the later scores in the series! I Fantastici has a 60s playful vibe right from the start – that occasional use of almost march-like drums that you'd find in some 60s comedies, ... CD
Harper
Mainstream/Intrada, 1966. New Copy
A hell of a soundtrack from the great Johnny Mandel – maybe his jazziest work of the 60s, and perfectly scored for this groovy cop film that stars Paul Newman as the 45-wielding title character! The vibe here is almost more 60s Quincy Jones than anything else – with sublime ... CD
Spasmo (180 gram pressing)
Tiger Bay (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
Sweetness and darkness – perfectly blended together in this classic mid 70s soundtrack by Ennio Morricone! The main theme of the film – "Bambole" – is one of those Mondo Morricone type numbers that floats along on a gossamy sheen – vocals gliding softly over light ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trunk (UK), 1970. New Copy
One of the dreamier soundtracks we've ever heard from Basil Kirchin – a beautiful set of tunes that has an organic, almost pastoral vibe at times – as Kirchin mixes together bits of strings, guitar, piano, and percussion with other more subtle sonic elements – sometimes with ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A groovy little soundtrack by the great Piero Umiliani! The score is for a b-grade spy film from the late 60s – starring Stewart Granger as (according to the notes) "a seasoned secret agent, but always ready to kiss and to bang!" A lot to live up to, we know – but Umiliani ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A set that was originally created in the prime electric years of the great Stelvio Cipriani – but one that has him working on acoustic piano throughout – often using weird effects and production elements to change up the sound of the instrument! There's a great main theme to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Not the usual film themes of the late 50s and early 60s – no James Bond numbers or Henry Mancini hits – and instead, a very cool, very well-selected batch of tracks that really opens up this cinematic generation! All of the numbers stand very well on their own – and the set mixes ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A great Stelvio Cipriani score for a 70s film about a creepy cult that pulls robberies – scored in a style that mixes his best erotic modes with some eerie touches that fit the nature of the villains! All our favorite 70s Cipriani modes are here – especially those keyboards that he ... CD
Warner/Quartet (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy
An unusual early soundtrack from the great Francis Lai – done for an American film, and not the sort of European movies that he did so famously! Fortunately, the musical style is quite similar – lots of those warm currents and lush, slinky moods that we've always loved in Lai since his ... CD
Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls
20th Century, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
"It's not a sequel – there's never been anything like it." Finally, an awesome reissue of the classically groovy camp soundtrack to "king of the nudies" Russ Meyer's crazy non-sequel to Valley Of The Dolls – one of the greatest exploitation movies of all time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spettro (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Cool organ lines, wonderful keyboards, and lots of other great bits – all stepping out in a set that's completely sublime – and maybe some of the best work we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Piccioni! The score is as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – and definitely has ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carosello/AMS (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really spooky soundtrack from Pino Donaggio – even if the instrumentation is somewhat standard! The music is for the great Nicolas Roeg film Don't Look Now – set in a slowly rotting Venice, and filled with moody mystery and hints of horror – but all elements that never fully ... LP, Vinyl record album
All Score Media (Germany), 2018. New Copy
The cover looks vintage, the music sounds vintage, but the whole thing is actually contemporary – although also recorded as a soundtrack for the title film, which was first released in 1971! Mondo Sangue did something similar with their last album, and the results here are every bit as great ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Pentamusic (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A film that's heavy on vengeance – but one that also has a very powerful, positive feeling in its music! Carlo Savina is at the height of his 60s powers here – working with a rich palette of tonal colors that explode on the main vocal number, "Vengeance" – then get ... CD
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
Muscle Up
Dark Entries, Late 70s. New Copy
Moody work from the legendary Patrick Cowley – all music originally composed for use in 70s porno films shot on the San Francisco scene – most of it in the years before Cowley took off in more techno-styled dancefloor modes! These tracks are all heavy on electronics, but the grooves ... CD
Goal – The World Cup 1966
El (UK), 1966. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Totally wonderful sounds from UK soundtrack giant John Hawksworth – penned for a film on the heated World Cup of 1966, but served up in John's usual blend of jazzy styles, mod elements, and beautifully tuneful grooves! The CD presents the music with lots of snippets of dialogue from the film ... CD
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Dark and moody work from Ennio Morricone – scored for a film that's also known as Evil Fingers or The Fifth Cord, a 1971 crime thriller directed by Luigi Bazzoni – with a sound that's as spooky as you might guess from the cover! The music is very edgy – with lots of strings drawn ... LP, Vinyl record album
Phase IV (180 gram colored vinyl – with booklet)
Waxwork, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A 70s sci fi film that gets a very different soundtrack approach from Brian Gascoigne – whose tracks here are all quite long, longer than seven minutes each, and work almost as mini narratives in sound – as the darker moments are illuminated by occasional lyrical touches, which are then ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1971. New Copy
One of the coolest 70s soundtracks from the great Stelvio Cipriani – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The music here was scored for a Mario Bava horror film, but it often has a quality that's more lean and lovely overall – that current of sex that we always love ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Italy), 1978. New Copy
Sweet funky sounds from the great Stelvio Cipriani – very much in the slinky sexy style of his Italian work of the early 70s, but given a bit more of a kick in the rhythms, and some slight island flavors for the film's Bermuda setting! Instrumentation is mostly electric – riffing ... CD
Beat/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
It's quite possible that nobody else does a 70s soundtrack better than Stelvio Cipriani – and with a set like this, you'll certainly hear why! While other Italian composers were schooled in the 60s, and came of age in the 70s – often adopting their modes with new instrumentation and ... CD
Beat/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1973. New Copy
A beautifully balanced Italian soundtrack from the 70s – not just the straight crime score you might expect, but a record that really fleshes things out with a lot of depth! True, some of the most compelling cuts are the funky ones you'd expect from such a film, but these are often offset by ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1967. New Copy
A fantastic lost slice of work from the legendary Krzysztof Komeda – and a set that's quite different than some of his avant jazz classics of the 60s! This album's still got a lot of jazz in the mix, but there's also a lot of the "sweet" mentioned in the title – mostly in ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976/1993. New Copy
Two Italian crime soundtracks – recorded almost 20 years apart, but sounding great here together as a double-length set! First up is Quelli Della Calibro 38 – a fantastic score by Stelvio Cipriani, and one that mixes a bit more action and groove with his usual sense of a dreamy melody ... CD
