Sony (Japan), 2017. New Copy
An amazing side of the many talents of Michel Legrand – his more serious compositional work, presented here in two different concertos – with some surprisingly fantastic piano by the composer himself! You'll know Legrand best for his famous soundtrack material of the 60s and 70s – ... CD
Kapp/Intrada, 1961. New Copy
A killer soundtrack from Kenyon Hopkins – a composer we can almost always trust to turn around a killer jazz score! The work is mostly in a jazz ensemble mode – and moves between swinging segments, and sadder ones – those beautifully blue passages that Hopkins did so well in the ... 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
MCA/Intrada, 1975. New Copy 2 CDs
A 70s soundtrack that hardly needs an introduction – given that its music and image were virtually ubiquitous at the time! The record's best known for John Williams' famous "da-da da-da" theme for the film – used in the titles, and whenever the big guy wanted to attack – ... CD
AVA/Intrada, 1962/1963/1964/1965. New Copy 3 CDs
A great collection of 60s soundtracks from Elmer Bernstein – all originally issued by the indie Ava label, where Bernstein was one of the biggest stars! Elmer had already had a number of years experience working in Hollywood – including some classic late 50s scores that perfectly mixed ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 1974. New Copy
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 ... CD
Cinewax/Light In The Attic, 1973. New Copy Gatefold
First ever release in any format of Edie Sedgwick's final film! LP, Vinyl record album
Death Waltz (UK), 2017. New Copy Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album
Il Gatto Dagli Occhi Di Giada
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual group that we only know from this one Italian soundtrack – and a combo who's not nearly as electronic as you might guess from their Kraftwerk-sounding name! Instead, the approach here is a bit like that of Goblin on their horror scores from the same time – a style that uses ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy
Two great Ann Margret soundtracks back to back on a single CD! The Swinger is Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other ... CD
Goodfellas (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Dark echoes, mixed with warmer moments – in a compelling little soundtrack that breaks from more familiar Morricone modes! There's a few themes here that almost echo a Mondo Morricone style – but other tracks are often quite spare, and almost earthy – far at the limits of hearing ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/El (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy
A Henry Mancini double-header – two overlooked soundtracks, back to back on a single CD! First up is Two For The Road – a wonderful soundtrack to one of our favorite American films of the 60s – the amazing Two For The Road, scored here beautifully by Henry Mancini! Mancini does ... CD
Goodfellas (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet 70s groover from Italian soundtrack maestro Armando Trovajoli – one that has some nice funky tracks! There's a bit more electricity running through the mix than on Trovajoli's 60s recordings – sweet keys and bass bubbling under the strings, and often hitting some nice laidback ... 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
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s/2007. New Copy 5CD
A huge array of groovy genius from the mighty Lalo Schifrin – the South America jazzman who first rose to fame in the group of Dizzy Gillespie, the moved on to give us some of the coolest film scores of the 60s! This set brings together eight of Lalo's best albums from that period, plus a ... CD
Visit To A Small Planet/Delicate Delinquent
20th Century/Kritzerland, 1957/1960. New Copy
Two Jerry Lewis soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is the very cool Visit To A Small Planet from 1960 – a Jerry Lewis sci-fi flick, done with a cool mix of sprightly themes and spacey touches. There's a few nice theremin moments, mixed with these nice orchestral ... CD
Kritzerland, Late 40s. New Copy 2 CDs
A great package of work that features material from some of the famous 40s films directed by Otto Preminger for 20th Century Fox – served up on two CDs' worth of hard-to-find soundtrack recordings! Fallen Angel is from 1945, and features a lovely main theme by David Raksin with a few jazzier ... CD
Hud/Lonely Man (with bonus tracks)
Paramount/Kritzerland, 1957/1963. New Copy
A pair of obscure soundtracks, both with a western theme – fitting together surprisingly well on a single CD! Hud is one of Paul Newman's finest early moments on screen – scored beautifully here by Elmer Bernstein, who shows a surprisingly deft ear for guitar lines – spun out in ... CD
Apartment/Fortune Cookie
Kritzerland, 1960/1963. New Copy
A couple of great soundtracks for the films of Billy Wilder – 1960's The Apartment, composed by Adolph Deutch, and Andre Previn's work for The Fortune Cookie – back-to-back on a single CD! Adolph Deutch's compositions from The Apartment roll from an easygoing jazzy vibe to sweeping ... CD
