Demon (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
A beautiful look at the transformation of the sound of horror film music during the 70s – with a strong focus on the Italian scene, where a host of key talents were really coming up with something new! Previous horror scores would often use dark strings or atonal passages to create more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beatball (South Korea), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Wonderfully groovy stuff – and one of the best soundtracks ever by the great Italian composer Armando Trovajoli! The record has a very similar feel to his legendary Seven Golden Men soundtrack – with a groovy swinging jazz vocal group (I Cantori Moderni) over jazzy riffing and groovin ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1972. New Copy
One of the most enigmatic soundtracks we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – a set that's still as groovy as his work from the 60s, but with a lot more 70s rock touches overall! These elements come through in some of the English language vocals at the start, but then slide into lighter ... CD
Beatball (South Korea), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most enigmatic soundtracks we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – a set that's still as groovy as his work from the 60s, but with a lot more 70s rock touches overall! These elements come through in some of the English language vocals at the start, but then slide into lighter ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Afternooners
Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The continuing lost legacy of Patrick Cowley – the San Francisco 80s club maestro who made some famous records with Sylvester – but who also did a huge amount of underground sounds for porno films at the time! This set digs deep into that legacy – by featuring music that Cowley ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the coolest, weirdest music that electronic genius Suzanne Ciani ever recorded – sounds for a live performance of a socially-conscious opera – but done with a very eerie vibe that must have overwhelmed any of the artists on the stage! On record, the music works more as one long ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A horror soundtrack for the Mario Bava classic Baron Blood – but one that's done with some groovier touches than you might expect! Maestro Stelvio Cipriani handled the work for the score – and although he definitely brings in all the right dark edges for the narrative, he also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music! Il Prefetto Di Ferro has a core sound that's very much in keeping with Morricone's approach to crime and cop films – a bit warmer and funkier at times than his horror ... LP, Vinyl record album
Veruschka (picture disc)
Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
Dark soundtrack material from Max Richter – music that often features a fuller orchestral setting than some of his other material, but which still works in that beautifully slow-building style that we love in his compositions! The story's an historical one, so at times the music references ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A great little album that ranks with the best of the Italian mod generation soundtracks – filled with playful touches and some very groovy tunes! Peppino De Luca's certainly not one of the better-known composers from this stretch – but the album's a top-shelf effort all the way through ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
Beautiful sounds from Max Richter – the modern classical composer who's elevating to almost the same film score status as Philip Glass! As with Glass, Richter can make music for movies without losing any of the depth of his non-film compositions – and here, he works sublime minimalist ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sometimes A Great Notion
Decca/Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
One of the more unusual Henry Mancini soundtracks from the classic years – music penned for a film that was also an early directorial effort by Paul Newman! The story's set in logging country in the Pacific Northwest, and Mancini brings in some elements from country music at times – ... CD
Sacred Bones, 2017. New Copy
John Carpenter takes his classic film themes, and does them one better – by working here with his Lost Themes Band in some wonderful new versions of these famous tunes! The music is still very heavy on that stark guitar and keyboard style that Carpenter virtually invented in the late 70s ... CD
Spettro (Italy), 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An early soundtrack from Italian film legend Piero Piccioni – done for one of the earliest movies by Pier Paolo Pasolini, and served up in a mad mix of jazzy styles and larger instrumentation! About half the tracks here have a crime jazz mode that echoes the American scene of the late 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brancaleone Alle Crociate
Digitmovies (Italy), 1970. New Copy
The lively return of Brancaleone – the Italian comedic hero from The Crusades – whose musical journey is often a mix of different modes! Carlo Rustichelli handled the music, and the styles here are a mix of the jaunty march numbers that marked the heroe's main theme on his debut – ... CD
L'Armata Brancaleone
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A dramatic soundtrack for L'Armata Bracaleone – a mid 60s Italian fantasy action film that starred Vittorio Gassman in a strange setting that was sort of a twisted version of the Middle Ages! The tunes on the set are often orchestral and mood-setting – but a few of the more standout ... CD
L'uomo Puma
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
An obscure little soundtrack – for a weird Italian film about a hero named Puma Man! The music here is straighter than you might expect from the cover – surprisingly serious overall, and done with a warm blend of orchestrations and keyboards – sometimes jazzy with strings at the ... CD
