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
678 Records (Belgium), 1981. New Copy
A rare later soundtrack from Dutch composer Ruud Bos – best known for some very funky work at the start of the 70s, and still going strong here a decade later! The score's got a much more mid 70s vibe than you'd expect – like some of the best American cop show work of the early 70s, ... 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
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1961. New Copy
Very rare early work from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – music composed for an Italian TV show at the start of the 60s – served up in a mix of jazz and other groovy styles! The real surprise here is that most of the tunes are vocal numbers, sometimes sung by artists you'll know from ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Alessandro Alessandroni/Francesco DeMasi

Lesbo (180 gram limited edition pressing)
Beat/BTF (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Dark genius from the legendary Ennio Morricone – one of the most important film composers of the 20th Century, and a master in just about any style! The work here represents a shift that Morricone made into darker modes as the 70s approached – sounds that stepped off from some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone/Bruno Nicolai

Bandits In Rome (aka Roma Come Chicago)
Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy
One of the more obscure Ennio Morricone soundtracks of the late 60s – done in close collaboration with musical partner Bruno Nicolai, for a gangster film that stars John Cassavettes in the lead! A number of tracks have an older crime jazz sort of vibe – similar to the Italian modes ... CD
RCA/Music Box (France), 1972. New Copy
A groovy soundtrack to a film we'd love to see – an obscure thriller that starred Henry Fonda and Yul Brynner – and which, like most of the Morricone-scored films of the period, has dropped from cinematic history, even though the wonderful soundtrack lives on! The style of the music ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A trio of very unusual soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – all done for a cycle of films that are billed in the notes as "costume erotic comedies"! The "costume" refers to the fact that the stories are all set in the imagined past – where the erotic styles that ... CD

Francis Lai/Brigitte Bardot

Les Petroleuses (red vinyl pressing)
LMLR (France), 1971. New Copy
Les Petroleuses has a nice variety of sounds – some of the slinky, sexy, Euro-styled numbers you'd expect from Lai in the early 70s, and from a film starring Brigitte Bardot – mixed with other tracks that seem to foreground a version of the old west that's a bit playful – using ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trunk (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
The great Ron Geesin is a man of many talents – UK studio genius, ace composer, arranger, and more – with ties to worlds that include film music, sound library work, easy listening, and even collaborations with Pink Floyd! The music here is all from films by underground director ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1971. New Copy
An obscure French period comedy from 1971 – with a surprisingly groovy score from Michel Polnareff! The film starred Luis De Funes and Yves Montand, and although Montand sings on a track or two, the main groove of the set is in the mode of Polnareff's groovy work from the late 60s. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar/Universal, 1970s. New Copy 2LP & 7 inch
An impeccable collection of work from one of the greatest soundtrack talents ever – a package that brings together a range of rare work from the 70s, including a number of previously-unreleased tracks!

The music does have some of the dark tinges promised by the title, but this is less the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Patrick Cowley

School Daze
Dark Entries, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Rare work from Patrick Cowley – an artist who most folks know for music with Sylvester in the 80s, but heard here on a selection of tracks he did for porno films at the same time! The music has lots of the sweet electro touches of Cowley's singles for the clubs – post-disco funk, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A dark little soundtrack that we'd pitch right up there with The Wicker Man or Rosemary's Baby – and one with a sound that's somewhere in between those two classics! The work was penned for an obscure early 70s film in the Czech new wave – and features music that's sometimes a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy
Two amazing works from Belgian electronic genius Alain Pierre – both appearing in this form for the first time ever! Side one features 11 minutes of continuous music that Pierre created for the short film O Sidarta – music that mixes a range of electronics, keyboards, and acoustic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD
A wonderful celebration of the long-running Ecoutez Le Cinema series – a book-styled package that brings together dozens of rare and classic soundtrack tunes, plus a big booklet of notes! The CDs feature titles from across the series – 2CDs' worth of music from dozens of films, handled ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CD
A gem of a package from one of our favorite film composers ever – a huge 10CD assortment of music from the earliest years of Michel Legrand – a set that shows just what an amazing career he was already having in Paris before his mid 60s rise on the international scene! The scope of ... CD
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
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1968. New Copy 2CD
A 2CD set of music designed to accompany Japanese animation that starred "the little Norse Prince Valiant" – the cut lil' guy pictured on the cover, who gets some very action-packed accompaniment here! Most tunes are short and lively, and almost echo an older cartoon mode that you ... CD

Ennio Morricone/Bruno Nicolai

Bandits In Rome
Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy
One of the more obscure Ennio Morricone soundtracks of the late 60s – done in close collaboration with musical partner Bruno Nicolai, for a gangster film that stars John Cassavettes in the lead! A number of tracks have an older crime jazz sort of vibe – similar to the Italian modes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone

Senza Movemente
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
Beautifully slow-building work from Ennio Morricone – caught right at that near-perfect start of the 70s point when he was a master of understatement and spare musical elements! Many numbers begin with a sound that's often very spare – sliding out of the darkness sometimes with just a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Four rare soundtracks from Italian composer Franco Bixio – appearing here on CD for the first time ever! First up is Deserto Di Fuoco – a score that begins with a dreamy wordless vocal theme, but then quickly moves into tenser moments – a kind of low-end, brooding approach to the ... CD
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A stunning set that's packed with some of our favorite music from the soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – that special style he created in the late 60s, as a way of blending together influences from jazz, bossa nova, and other instrumental styles – hardly the sleepy lounge music of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold
Funky 70s crime cinema sounds from Italy – done for giallo, police thriller and gore maestro Umberto Lenzi's La Banda Del Gobbo, by Franco Micalizzi – a frenetic, funky and action packed score that hardly lets up for a moment! We knew we were in for a treat from the second we put it on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1983. New Copy
There's a real Escape From New York look to the cover here – and the music by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis has a very strong John Carpenter vibe – lots of spare, stark numbers that shift between electro funk and moodier numbers – really setting up the action with a dose of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro Brugnolini

Superground (180 gram vinyl)
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riz Ortolani & Nino Oliviero

Mondo Cane (with bonus tracks)
Sugar/Decca (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the first big international soundtracks to come from the Italian scene in the 60s – the start of a great run that would continue through the decade, although maybe not with results as strongly as this! The score is for a strange documentary-like film (the title means "World Gone ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A sexy little soundtrack from Nico Fidenco – penned for this mid 70s film about a teenage prostitute who works under the nickname "Blue Jeans"! The music's got a wonderfully whimsical feel – not as electric or Euro-erotic as you might expect from the cover, and often put ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1963. New Copy
Think the French new wave had a lock on jazz soundtracks? Think again, because the Japanese scene of the 60s was full of them – including this sublime set from 1963! Most numbers here are jazz tracks played by a great small combo – one that's got tremendous energy all the way through! ... CD
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – one of those extra-special soundtracks of his that really seem to elevate from the rest – with a sublime blend of elements that's completely unique! The sound here is in the best Mondo Morricone mode – often slowly stepping, kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful illustration of the balance of light and darkness in the best work of Ennio Morricone – and an obscure soundtrack that dances between both sides of the spectrum! The main theme is incredibly sweet – one of those lightly drifting Morricone numbers that features wordless ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy
A tremendous little police soundtrack from 70s Italy – one with plenty of Morricone-like touches, but that's A-OK with us! Luciano Michelini does a great job here of juxtaposing stark sounds with sweeter ones – particularly some great piano that's isolated nicely above the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – sounds initially written for a film that was an international "sexpose" of daily life in Sweden – but which have grown to even greater fame on their own over the years – thanks to the talent of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A great overview of the early soundtrack work of Georges Delerue – one of the first great composers to emerge from the French new wave/nouvelle vague generation – and an artist whose music was often a key part of those films! Some of the new wave cinema used music by jazz artists and ... CD
Beverly Hills/Real Gone, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic sexy soundtrack from Bill Loose – scored for a Russ Meyer Sexploitation film, but handled with a care that goes way deeper than you might expect! Bill brings in some nice jazzy moments on organ and guitar – and there's also some Sunshine Pop-styled vocals at points – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Graeme Miller & Steve Shill

Carrier Frequency
Finders Keepers (UK), 1984. New Copy
A rare soundtrack from an unusual UK stage production of the early 80s – presented here on record for the first time ever! The piece was a stage extension of the novel Riddley Walker – and has this eerie, sci-fi like vibe – scored here by Graeme Miller and Steve Shill with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Abkco, Late 50s/Early 60s/2021. New Copy
An unusual blend of classic country and original music – served up here in support of the Netflix film of the same name! We really dig the classic cuts – work that includes "Young Love" by Sonny James, "Hillbilly Boogie" by The Delmore Brothers, "The Three ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1973. New Copy
A wonderfully weird Ennio Morricone score – done for an equally weird western that starred the great Terence Hill in the lead! The movie mixes in a bit of comedy with straight action – and Morricone's music really fits that vibe – with a blend of more familiar classic Morricone ... CD

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

Ivan Vandor/Stelvio Cipriani

Bersaglio Mobile
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy
Very groovy work from Ivan Vandor – one of the lesser-known artists of the Italian soundtrack scene, but getting some help here from 70s giant Stelvio Cipriani – who handles the orchestrations! The music is very striking and groovy – a late 60s update of earlier crime jazz modes, ... CD

Giovanni Fusco

I Cosacchi
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy
An early score from Giovani Fusco – done for a late 50s film about Russian Cossacks, and scored with some of the same mix of modes you'd find in some of the blood and sandals epics from the time! By that, we mean that the score has a blend of familiar postwar orchestrations with more exotic ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1980. New Copy
We can always trust Nico Fidenco to give us a sexy soundtrack – and this time around, he definitely does that, but also adds in a fair bit more too – nicely balancing some of the erotics of the film with some of the darker passages in the story! If you only know Fidenco from ... CD

Quincy Jones

Banning
La La Land, 1967. New Copy
A really rare soundtrack from Quincy Jones – right up there with his jazziest gems of the 60s, but never issued on record at the time! The music is for an obscure film with Robert Wagner in the lead, and the sounds are a hip blend of the earlier jazz modes of Quincy, with some of the fuller ... CD
La La Land, 1967. New Copy
A pair of overlooked Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is The Detective – a soundtrack we've been trying to find for years – given the way the music works perfectly in the surprisingly dark film! Goldsmith uses lots of jazzy tones in his scoring ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the more obscure entries in the caveman comedy genre that cropped up briefly at the end of the 60s – a set of very groovy tunes for a movie that has the females going on a sex strike to keep the men from fighting! There's very little in the music to tie the film to Lysistrata – ... CD
