Music Box (France), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD
Three rare slices of work from the mighty Francis Lai – all lesser-known soundtracks done for Universal Pictures in the late 60s – a company who didn't set his music to record as much as other studios, even though they worked with Lai during some of his most creative years! First up is ... CD
Una Giornata Spesa Bene
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP
A rare one from Bruno Nicolai – a composer that many people recognize from his work with Ennio Morricone, but one who can sound even groovier on his own! Bruno's got some really wide-open ears on the set – able to bring in lots of unusual sounds and odd inflections, while still keeping ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1964. New Copy
A creepy cover, and some creepy music as well – a starkly dramatic 60s score from Italian maestro Carlo Rustichelli! The style of the music predates some of the more famous Italian horror to come in the late 60s, but it's still directed with a similar thoughtfulness and sense of sound – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Appuntamento A Dallas
Dagored (Italy), 1964. New Copy
A really unusual Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one that mixes some of the jazzy modes of the time with a few elements that might sound a bit more "Dallas" – like occasional acoustic guitar or barroom piano! The tracks here are mostly short, but work together in a nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Maybe the only soundtrack we've ever seen from Silvano D'Auria – but a hell of a set that stands right up there with the best of his contemporaries on the early 70s Italian scene! The music is funky at times, slinky at others, and completely sex-drenched throughout – served up with ... 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
Toby Dammit
Bella Casa (UK), 1967. New Copy
An overlooked bit of genius from Federico Fellini – a film that stars Terence Stamp as a Shakespearean actor run amuck – set to wonderful sounds here by the great Nino Rota! Rota revives some of his most charming styles from early 60s Fellini classics like La Dolce Vita or 8 1/2 – ... LP, Vinyl record album
International Detective/Man From Interpol
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, ... 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
Black Panther
Interscope, 2018. New Copy
A modern classic hip hop soundtrack to Black Panther that should make T'Challa proud! It was pretty clear early on that Black Panther might be one of the greatest modern super hero movies – and an important one for the political and cultural climate of the late teens – so the pressure ... CD
Capitol/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible soundtrack – one of the all-time greats of the 70s! Dave Grusin really outdid himself with this one – and created a sublime mix of sound, space, and spare funky beats that holds up wonderfully all the way through! The main theme steps around in a haunting mix of electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Missing Vinyl (Greece), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Incredible soundtrack work from Vangelis Papathanassiou of Aphrodite's Child – impressive, moody compositions for Sex Power – a forgotten French film with Jane Birkin! We know nothing about the film and it's hard to believe it's so little remembered given how amazing (and amazingly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Some of the coolest, most swinging film themes you'll ever hope to hear – not the usual band of over-hashed classics from the 50s and 60s – but instead a really fresh, obscure collection – and one that features lots of rare work from the British scene too! Vocals and ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1961. New Copy 2CD
One of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that ... CD
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A driving Italian soundtrack from the height of the cop/crime years – done with really full arrangements by Franco Micalizzi, in a way that easily rivals some of the best American work of the genre in the 70s! Most of the orchestrations are quite bold – upbeat rhythms with basslines ... LP, Vinyl record album
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
Amazing work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – a perfect soundtrack to show the warmer sound of his talents, which are sometimes eclipsed by his weirder electronic modes! The soundtrack's from an erotic film starring sex-goddess Zeudi Araya, but despite the kinky origins of the material, ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Les Shadoks
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Weird and wild sounds from the equally weird and wild French animated series at the end of the 60s – served up here by a classically-trained musician who also had a lot of experience with electro-acoustic sounds at the GRM studios! The music here is a dark mix of familiar elements – ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastically jazzy score from Roberto Nicolosi – a set that's got all the dark, swirling sounds you'd love from a early 70s Italian horror soundtrack – but served up with instrumentation from some of the best of Rome's jazz scene! Players include Gianni Basso on tenor, Cicci ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible lost jazz funk soundtrack by Guiliano Sorgini – one of the best we've been lucky enough to discover in ages – all the more fascinating given the film it was made for! The soundtrack is a wild one for the most part, with a few more elegiac sounding numbers – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
