Spettro (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)
A haunting 60s soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – done for a TV special on ancient Egyptian culture, and handled with a vibe that's a bit different than some of Umiliani's other work! The tunes have this great use of exotic elements – percussion, flute, and even organ that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni

Adua E Le Compagne
Cinevox (Italy), 1960. New Copy
A beautifully jazzy score from the great Piero Piccioni – penned for this obscure Italian film about 4 prostitutes who decide to reform and open a restaurant! Piccioni's soundtrack shares many styles with American jazz soundtracks of the late 50s – including a strong use of spare ... CD

Pierre Bachelet

Histoire D'O
CAM/Music Box (France), 1975. New Copy
A classic sexy soundtrack from the 70s – maybe the greatest thing ever to come from the pen of composer Pierre Bachelet, and a lot more rich than the images on the screen from Just Jaeckin's cinematic version of The Story Of O! Bachelet works in a mix of electric and acoustic styles – ... CD

Bruno Nicolai

Defense De Savoir
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A cool little soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – penned for a French film instead of an Italian movie – and with a sound that's a bit different than usual! Nicolai makes nice use of some sweeter themes here – a hint of the modes you might find in Michel Legrand or Francis Lai in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mario Nascimbene

Psycorama
Minstrel/Roundtable (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the moodiest, most unusual music we've ever heard from Mario Nascimbene – an artist who's maybe best known for working in the more romantic side of the spectrum, but who here is using a "mixerama" keyboard – which works a bit like the mellotron to sample elements, then ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paramount/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A really wonderful Quincy Jones soundtrack from the end of the 60s – and one that's a bit different than some of his other work of the decade! The film's a very cool British heist story, with Michael Caine in the lead – and while Quincy brings in plenty of the jazz of his background, ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles ... CD

Franco Micalizzi

Hold Up (180 gram pressing)
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
A great little score for an obscure 70s Italian crime film – one that's penned with a much greater range of styles than you might expect! Although the setting is one of crime and action, the music here often has some great warmer touches too – a blend of erotics that slide in between ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$3.99 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
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$3.99 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
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
One of the most obscure 70s soundtracks from the great Piero Piccioni – and one of the grooviest too – a set that has the maestro playing lots of lead piano and organ lines himself, in a way that recalls the dreaminess of some of his better-known scores from the 60s! The film's an ... 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

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
CAM/Dagored (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A totally great follow-up to the first Seven Golden Men soundtrack – and one that features an equally wonderful range of jazzy and groovy modes from composer Armando Trovajoli! As before, the music is heavy on cool 60s touches – including some swinging wordless vocals from I Cantori ... 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

Guido & Maurizio De Angelis

Alien 2 Sulla Terra (180 gram vinyl)
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A very unusual soundtrack from the Italian team of Guido & Maurizio De Angelis – best known for their crime work of the 70s, but here working on the music for an "unofficial" sequel to the Alien film, done as a low-budget production overseas! In this movie, the Alien has come ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music Box (France), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Some of the most famous 70s soundtrack work of French jazz musician Claude Bolling – served up here in a double-length CD that's overflowing with bonus material too! First up is the original score for Borsalino – a really lovely little soundtrack for the French film that starred Alain ... 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

Ennio Morricone

Atame
Quartet (Spain), 1989. New Copy
Genius soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone – a later score done for director Pedro Almodovar, and maybe one of Morricone's best from these later years! It's almost as if the maestro was setting something special aside for Almodovar – as there's many tunes here that echo some of the ... CD

Graeme Miller & Steve Shill

Moomins – Winter Wunderland Edition
Finders Keepers (UK), 1982. New Copy
The Moomins comics have delighted the world for generations – but fewer folks have seen the early 80s Moomins TV show – which is a masterpiece of felt-based, stop-motion animation! And while the images on the screen are amazing, the music for the program is equally great – spare, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1989. New Copy
A really wonderful jazz soundtrack by Herbie Hancock – recorded at the end of the 80s, a decade when Herbie was spending a lot of time on keyboards – but with a rock-solid older jazz vibe that really fits the vintage Harlem setting of the film! The music mixes larger arrangements with ... CD

Nelson Riddle

Rough Cut
Quartet (Spain), 1980. New Copy
A sweet Nelson Riddle soundtrack for a Burt Reynolds caper film – served up with a style that updates older Riddle modes for the 80s, but with a surprising current of jazz too! The jazzier modes are emphasized by a few older Ellington tunes in the mix – amidst newer Nelson tunes that ... CD

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, Late 60s. New Copy
Freaked out sounds from a movie that offers up a look at the struggles of youth at the end of the 60s – a movie that was recorded "on the scene where the action is – presenting 500,000 young Americans doing their own thing!" The sound of the whole thing is pretty darn great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yan Tregger

L'Amour A La Bouche
Omega Productions (France), 1974. New Copy
A sweet sexy score from the great Yan Tregger – who you'll also know for his disco and sound library material on the late 70s Italian scene! This music is a bit earlier than some of Yan's sounds that we know from that part of the decade, but all the best roots of his groove are firmly in ... CD

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
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
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

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis

L'Ultimo Squalo (with bonus tracks)
Beat (Italy), 1981. New Copy
A nice little shark-themed soundtrack, but one that comes across with a vibe that's quite different than any of the music used for Jaws – partly because there's a number of vocal tunes in the mix! The set features three standout songs – "Hollywood Big Time" and "You've ... CD
GAD (Poland), 2019. New Copy 2CD
A more recent soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – put together for a film by the son of his old partner, director Andrzej Zulawski – and in a way that continues their cinematic legacy from previous years! The roots of the music like in older Korzynski recordings, but ... CD
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

Georges Garvarentz

Un Beau Monstre
Pathe/Early Dawn (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever – an insane treat throughout! The music is very different than anything that George Garvarentz ever did before – and maybe since – as he brings together all sorts of cool jazz, funk, and psychedelic elements with effortless ease – then ... CD
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
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
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
Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy
Modern jazz from the Italian scene of the 60s – all of it recorded for film and soundtrack use, and almost none of is released before! The music here shows not just the fantastic advances in film scoring in the 60s, but also the overlooked growth of jazz in Italy at the same time too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone

Atame
Quartet (Spain), 1989. New Copy
Genius soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone – a later score done for director Pedro Almodovar, and maybe one of Morricone's best from these later years! It's almost as if the maestro was setting something special aside for Almodovar – as there's many tunes here that echo some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Really warm, whimsical early work from Piero Umiliani – music that comes from his first few years in the soundtrack scene, but which already shows some of the differences that set him apart from the rest! Some tracks are straight jazz, but done in a way that echoes some of the hipper, modern ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nino Rota

Sunset Sunrise
Quartet (Italy), 1973. New Copy
One of the most unusual Nino Rota scores of the 70s – an obscure soundtrack done for a Japanese Nikkatsu film directed by Koreyoshi Kurahara, one that really benefits from the sophisticated scoring of Rota! The music is rich and full – Rota at that maturing style that had him moving ... CD
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
The world premiere of this sweet 70s soundtrack from Franco Micalizzi – a great batch of erotic-tinged tunes originally penned for an Italian film about teenage lust! The music has a warmly gentle quality that's similar to some of Ennio Morricone's work in this mode – tunes that ... 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

Daryl Dragon & Others

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
El (UK), 1960s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Way more than just the usual collection of famous British TV themes from the 60s – as this set offers up some great rare nuggets, unusual versions, and some obscure tracks that are all pretty darn fresh to our American years! As you well know if you're a fan of anything pop culture from this ... CD
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

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
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
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
