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
Family Groove, Early 70s. New Copy
JJ Johnson is known to most folks as a jazz trombonist – but during the early 70s, he did some fantastic work in the studio for a handful of films – including blacksploitation classics Cleopatra Brown, Across 110th Street, and Willie Dynamite! Johnson's legacy in that world is short, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy
A fantastic Italian soundtrack – for a 70s thriller that starred Telly Savalas and Antonio Sabato – and which features maybe some of the grooviest sounds we've heard from Francesco De Masi at the time! Francesco is really changing himself up from the 60s – not just using funky ... CD

Marcello Giombini

L'Ossessa
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. New Copy
A demonic possession soundtrack, and one that's put together with just the right sort of sounds – music that's so creepy and eerie, we keep looking over our shoulders when we're giving it a listen – and which hardly sounds like any other similar soundtracks from the time! Marcello ... CD
Beatball (Korea), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A really beautiful collection of work from Ennio Morricone – one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time, especially during the period covered in this set! The songs here are from a time when the maestro was effortlessly combining jazz, mod rhythms, rock instrumentation, and other ... 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
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
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni Marchetti

Il Magnifico Tony Carrera
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A great one from Gianni Marchetti – the Italian composer we know best for his work on The Wild Eye, but who sounds equally great on this set too! The best tracks have a heavy rhythm at the bottom – not really funky, but kind of mod, and a bit more off-kilter on the slower numbers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis

Bomber
Beat (Italy), 1982. New Copy
A catchy little soundtrack for a weird sort of film – one in which Italian comedy heavyweight Bud Spencer plays a boxer, and gets a great theme to match his action in and out of the ring! The core of the score is a groovy electro pop tune titled "Fantasy" – almost a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold
A dreamy soundtrack for an obscure Rock Hudson film – one that sports some really wonderful music from Ennio Morricone! The music here is occasionally topped with groovy vocals – often sung wordlessly in a "la la la" sort of mode by I Cantori Moderni, and set to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni

Fumo Di Londra (3CD set)
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 3CD
One of the coolest soundtracks of the 60s – presented here in a massive package that brings forth a wealth of never-reissued music! Piero Piccioni really hit his stride for the music to this film that was directed by its star – the effervescent Alberto Sordi – a fantastic send-up ... CD

Alec Cheer

Night Kaleidoscope
Trunk (UK), 2019. New Copy
A really great electronic soundtrack – contemporary, but served up with a very spare, electronic feel that takes us back to some of the best horror gems of the 80s! If you're a fan of the music for Stranger Things or Good Time, you'll find plenty to love here – as Alec Cheer works in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin

Nunzio
MCA/Quartet (Spain), 1978. New Copy
A really unusual soundtrack from the mighty Lalo Schifrin – and one that seems to show off all of his best modes in its shifting range of styles! The film is a somewhat understated story set on the streets of New York – and the music often takes on the same sort of vibe – with ... CD
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1960. New Copy
A great little soundtrack from trash maestro Nicholas Carras – not one of the bigger names in mainstream cinema scoring at the start of the 60s – but in a way that really lets him take off and get creative with a record like this! The album's got a leadoff rock tune, some jazzier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Magne/David Gilmour

La Ronde/La Chasse A L'Homme/A Coeur Joie
Music Box (France), Mid 60s. New Copy
A trio of mid 60s soundtracks from Michel Magne – all on CD for the first time ever! First up is La Ronde – Roger Vadim film with his young, then-wife Jane Fonda in the lead – given a score that has many playful melodies in an older French style – maybe a bit like the music ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
One of the stranger western soundtracks from the 60s Italian scene – scored by one of its most obscure composers too – which maybe gave Pippo Franco a bit more leeway than most to really change things up with his style! The music really moves between a lot of different styles here ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. 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 ... CD
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1962. New Copy
A relatively early dramatic score from Piero Piccioni – yet one that also really shows his ongoing talent for scoring the urban landscape! The film is set in Athens during WWII, and Piccioni scores the scenes with this very melancholy style that indicates the unsure sense of victory at the ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
A fantastic Luis Bacalov score for one of the classic films to feature the duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – music that matches the wicked blend of drama and humor that always made their movies so great! The set begins with a great English-language theme – the very catchy "Can ... 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
United Artists/BTF (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Although this one's got a striking picture of Africa on the front cover, a pretty captivating title, and an Italian name in the composer credits, it's actually a pretty straight soundtrack – mostly strings and orchestral passages, handled in the dramatic mode that Ortolani used often on some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy
One of the lighter soundtracks we've ever heard from Francesco De Masi – scored for an equally lighthearted film about a bunch of kids off on adventure – all given a nice soundtrack that's both playful and lively, but without ever sounding too sentimental! The style here is more late ... CD
RCA/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A groovy little soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a set of tracks written for a controversial faux-documentary on slavery, done with better musical touches that are more in keeping with the early 70s release of the film! The movie came from the same producers as Mondo Cane – also scored ... LP, Vinyl record album
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
An excellent collection of work from the great John Barry – one that focuses on his famous contributions for the James Bond films – but also includes other soundtrack and instrumental material as well! The set begins with the John Barry Plays 007 record – a brilliant album that ... CD

John Hawksworth

Goal – The World Cup 1966
El (UK), 1966. New Copy
CD...$3.99 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

Gene Page

Blacula
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Deadlier than Dracula – and a lot funkier too! This is the original soundtrack for the classic blacksploitation horror flick starring the baaadest Drac ever to grace the screen of all those shabby downtown theaters that were still around in the 70s – a wicked batch of wah-wah tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nino Rota & Others

Fellini Masterpieces (3CD set)
El (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
A full range of music from the film career of director Federico Fellini – a package that features a few key soundtracks from frequent collaborator Nino Rota – plus other music that really shows the evolving style of Fellini over the years! The set is heavy on key Rota scores of the 50s ... CD
Aris/Sonor (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the greatest moments ever from Italian soundtrack composer Alberto Baldan Bembo – an artist with a great talent for combining warmth and a groove – using subtle strings over rolling basslines and sweet keyboards – all to wrap things together in a really fantastic sound! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fred Bongusto

Un Detective
Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A jazzy gem from the team of Fred Bongusto and Roby Poitevin – a score with even more charm than usual for this magical soundtrack era! The score has some of Bongusto's usual touches, but a warmer feel as well – almost some French scoring touches folded into the mix, served up on bits ... CD

Giorgio Gaslini

Un Amore
Quartet (Spain), 1965. New Copy
An early soundtrack from Italian jazz legend Giorgio Gaslini – and one that showcases both different sides of the maestro's talents! Some of the tracks feature larger orchestrations – of the sort that Gaslini would do with increasingly avant tendencies as the years move on, but which ... CD

Romolo Grano/Gianni Oddi

Le Montagne Della Luce EP
Four Flies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
Beautiful soundtrack gems from the 70s Italian scene – some of them unreleased, and all filled with some of the coolest, most beautiful elements of the time! This EP only features five tracks, but all of them are wonderful – some with otherwordly vocals by Edda Dell'Orso, some with ... 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

David Lynch & Angelo Baldamenti

Twin Peaks – Season Two Music & More
Rhino, 1991. New Copy
Great music from the second season of Twin Peaks – and a continuing illustration of the power of Angelo Baldamenti's music for the show! The strength of these simple themes and tunes is clear right from the get-go – as Angelo serves things up in a mode that's subtle, but still filled ... CD
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is ... CD

Godiego

House
Columbia/G-Matics (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Whimsical 70s soundtrack work from Godiego – very much in the same spirit as their catchy albums of the time! The tunes here are mostly instrumental, and have a weird mix of styles – a bit of jazz fusion here, some early electro pop there – and a few more tunes that maybe feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island/Real Gone, 1995. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A great return for fame for Jim Carroll – who didn't star in this story of his life and writing (that went to Leonardo DiCaprio) – but who did get a chance to reprise some of his music with help from Pearl Jam, and Graeme Revell! The set features the original "People Who Died" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Demon (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
The vaults of horror here are open pretty darn wide – so much so that they run a span from the initial years of Italian giallo films, all the way through some of the more electric slasher and shock films of the 80s! As with the first film, the package goes way past the obvious – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, 1991. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Great music from the second season of Twin Peaks – and a continuing illustration of the power of Angelo Baldamenti's music for the show! The strength of these simple themes and tunes is clear right from the get-go – as Angelo serves things up in a mode that's subtle, but still filled ... LP, Vinyl record album
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), 1972. New Copy
This Godfather's got a mighty long arm – and a mighty groovy sound, too – one that includes some great leaping rhythms bubbling up with basslines, and plenty of fantastic vocals from both Edda Ell'Orso and I Cantori Modern! Edda sings in that wordless breezy style she brought to some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Claudio Tallino

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
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)
Long before the Sharknado phenomenon hit the small screen, this sweet Italian film came along to woo the world with its wonderfully cheesy representation of aquatic terror! The 1984 date will give you a good idea of what to expect on the screen – and the music by Fabio Frizzi very much ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1971. New Copy 3 CDs
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Brit soundtrack genius Roy Budd – an artist who started with his roots in jazz piano, but who really explodes here in a range of groovy styles! The main title is an incredible blend of Eastern percussion and moody jazz – and other cuts bring in some ... CD

Stelvio Cipriani

Femina Ridens
CAM/Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderful soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani – penned for this 1969 Italian thriller with psycho-sexual overtones, and done with music that has elements of both! At some points, Cipriani has all the erotic touches of his best early 70s work – but at others, he uses late 60s modes that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A groovy little gem from Riz Ortolani! The soundtrack's got an excellent late 60s feel – with tracks that mix electric bass with sitar, flute, organ, and some fuller jazzy arrangements. There's a strong jazz component running through the mix – taking the score past some of the easier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy
Three nights of love from Piero Piccioni – scored with a sound that's right in between the jazzier styles he used in the first half of the 60s, and the groovier modes from the second half of the decade! Instrumentation matches that of some of Piero's straighter scores from a few years before ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of our favorite soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a sublime set that's a perfect summation of all his best jazz, bossa, and mod elements – served up in one sparkling set that's gotten countless play on our turntable over the years! The main theme is a classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Universal (France), 1965. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that ... LP, Vinyl record album
