Toshiaki Tsushima

Jingi Naki Tatakai
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
Blasting horns, stepping basslines, and lots of cool effects – a masterful soundtrack from 60s Japan – served up with a fair bit of drama and action in the mix! The style here is right up there with some of the best from Italy at the same time – and even though the sound of the ... CD

Tsushima Toshiaki

Saru No Gundan
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Really crazy soundtrack work – recorded for what looks to be a Japanese version of The Planet Of The Apes! The music is an insane blend of modes – bits of percussion, sound effects, odd electronics, and other unusual sounds – often used in tight, rhythmic ways over a series of ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy
Weird rock work from an equally weird Japanese film – one that seems to be filled with nudie images, if we can trust the photos included in the booklet! The group's a quartet – with guitar, bass, drums, and vocals – the latter of which don't always feature strongly, but when they ... CD

Food Brain

Shinjuku Mad
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A heavy rock soundtrack from Japan – one served up with lots of freaky, fuzzy touches! The instrumentation here includes piano, guitar, bass, and drums – and all tracks are instrumental, with a cool groove that takes off nicely from the American psyche hinterland of the period – ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967/1968. New Copy
Mod mod grooves from this ultra-hip Japanese combo of the 60s – a garagey group who burn with real intensity in this selection of obscure soundtrack material! The Spiders may not have reached big fame on this side of the Pacific, but back in the late 60s they were clearly the stuff of ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1966. New Copy
One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks " ... CD
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

Masahiko Sato

Belladonna
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy
One of the rarest albums ever from the mighty Masahiko Sato – a Japanese musician we love for his jazz, funk, and psychedelic sounds – all of which come into play on this unusual animated soundtrack! The music is plenty trippy right from the start – very offbeat, from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andrzej Korzynski

Possession
Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy
Amazing sounds from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – penned for a legendary horror film from the early 80s! The movie goes way beyond typical grit and gore – with a surreal bent that's made it the stuff of much discussion over the years – and Korzynski's music definitely lives ... 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
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
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
Kapp/La La Land, 1970. New Copy 2CD
A really fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – maybe better this time around than the images on the screen for some of his other westerns of the period – more proof that the maestro was always willing to rise above, and give his best no matter what the setting! The music begins with ... CD
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1967. New Copy CD & DVD
Groovy sounds for a somewhat creepy film – an obscure 1967 exploitation documentary about the underground hippie sex scene in San Francisco! The record is almost like a mini-movie in sound – in that it features a narrator describing various scenes in the city's underground, while ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet little island-based soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – one that's served up in just the right blend of exotica and jazz! Some elements here resonate with Umiliani's more familiar Italian scores of the time – some sweet keyboards that trip out nicely at a level that's a few ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/AMS (Italy), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A dark little western soundtrack from Luis Bacalov – one that's quite brooding overall, despite a rather catchy vocal tune on the title! There's some very odd instrumentation here – watery piano lines, floating bits of guitar, off-tuned strings – all used at different intervals, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hiroki Tamaki/Toru Fuyuki/Naozumi Yamamoto/Hirohiko Fukuda/Takahiro Saito

Kaiki Daisakusen (Operation Mystery/Second File/Strange Campaign Mystery File) (4CD set)
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1968/2007/2013. New Copy 4CD
Really nice work from a range of different Japanese TV series – material that spans a relatively large stretch of time, and comes together in a really cool blend of styles! The first two CDs features 51 tracks from the late 60s – mostly shorter cues and musical bits that have all sorts ... CD
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
Beat (Italy), 1980/1981. New Copy 3CD
Three Italian horror classics – packaged here in a single set! First up is Fabio Frizzi's score for Nella Citta Dei Morti Viventi/City Of The Living Dead – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was one of the true masters of Italian horror! The sounds here are a mix of electric ... CD

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
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a record from maestro Morricone – even if it wasn't one of his most famous sets at the time – a soundtrack that really brings together that effortless balance of darkness and light that makes some of the best recordings by Ennio Morricone so wonderful! The set's got a few ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
A pair of obscure soundtrack gems from Philippe Sarde – back to back on a single CD! First up is Max Et Les Ferrailleurs – an excellent funky French soundtrack! Philippe Sarde scored the music for this obscure film starring Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider – and the best cuts ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy
An overlooked Ennio Morricone score from the late 70s – one done for a b-grade erotic film, but which features the maestro working at the height of his powers! The instrumentation is maybe a bit more keyboard-oriented than a few years before – but handled in a way that really ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CDs
A huge batch of music from the films of French comedic actor Louis De Funes – a talent not that well known on our shores, but who graced the screens overseas for more than a few years in the 60s and 70s – and who received some of the grooviest soundtrack backings at the time! Even if ... CD
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

Gianfranco & Gian Piero Reverberi

Preparati La Bara
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A weird and wonderful western soundtrack from Italy – one that really lives up to the "reverb" in the name of the composers! There's some great use of isolated instrumentation here – a twanging guitar that echoes American guitar instrumentals of the 60s, but which also has a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD
Sweetly funky and very slinky – this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Piero Piccioni

Il Boom
CAM (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)
Beautiful soundtrack work from Piero Piccioni – an early score, but filled with the kind of weird, offbeat sounds that have always made him a genius! There's a bit of a link here – between earlier Italian scoring, ala Nino Rota, and some of the later, modder sounds of Piccioni's late ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Overlooked genius from Piero Umiliani – a relatively sort record for a soundtrack, but one that packs a hell of a punch on all of its wonderful cuts! Umiliani is in his best late 60s mix of modes here – with some incredible keyboards at a few points, jazzy bossa bits on others, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo Rustichelli

Avanti (with bonus tracks)
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy
An American film – directed by Billy Wilder and starring Jack Lemmon – but one with a distinctly Italian-styled soundtrack, thanks to the music of Carlo Rustichelli! Rustichelli scores the film with a style that's quite like his early 60s work for Italian films – warmly romantic, ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy
An extremely unique Henry Mancini soundtrack – scored for this European film that starred Marcello Mastroianni and Ingrid Bergman – with a sound that's almost in a similar mood to the work of Ennio Morricone from the same time! Most of the tracks are fairly dark and moody – with ... CD
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
Amazing work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – a perfect soundtrack to show the warmer sound of his talents, which are sometimes eclipsed by his weirder electronic modes! The soundtrack's from an erotic film starring sex-goddess Zeudi Araya, but despite the kinky origins of the material, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1967. New Copy
Groovy sounds for a somewhat creepy film – an obscure 1967 exploitation documentary about the underground hippie sex scene in San Francisco! The record is almost like a mini-movie in sound – in that it features a narrator describing various scenes in the city's underground, while ... LP, Vinyl record album
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy
A sexy little film, with a sexy little soundtrack to match – just the right blend of funk and crime modes you'd expect for a movie that was a precursor to Charlie's Angels! The Doll Squad were a lot trashier, though – and it really shows in some of the music here, which has a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1960s/2020. New Copy
A really great collection of work from one of the great unsung heroes of the French soundtrack scene of the 60s – the mighty Eric Demarsan, who also gets the chance to provide us with new music on the first half of the set! The first half is music from a documentary on Jean-Pierre Melville ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio Cipriani

Poliziotto Senza Paura
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy
Cool Italian cop soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – easily one of the true masters of the genre! The music is a great mix of mellow moods and funkier moments – spare, piano or keyboard-tinged tunes, which are then offset by more driving numbers that push along with fast guitar, ... CD

Ennio Morricone

L'Agnese Va A Morire
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
One of the more obscure 70s cinematic efforts handled by maestro Ennio Morricone – but a set of tracks that really show the composer at the top of his game! There's a nice undercurrent of melancholy in the music – hard not to do for a film set during the Nazi regime – and ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD
Famous songs from French films – served up here in a massive 3CD set that combines the biggest moments from both pre and postwar cinema! These songs are mostly vocal numbers, not instrumental themes – which makes the package a bit different than other soundtrack collections, and which ... CD

Giancarlo Bigazzi & Marco Falagiani

Mediterraneo (clear blue vinyl pressing)
AMS (Italy), 1991. New Copy
A really sweet little soundtrack to the 1991, WWII set film Mediterraneo – with warm instrumentation on Greek and Middle Eastern string, percussion and wind instruments – seamlessly blended with drums guitars and saxes! The soundtrack was composed by Giancarlo Bigazzi & Marco ... 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

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), 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 ... CD

Isao Tomita

Captain Ultra
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967. New Copy 2CD
Very early work by Isao Tomita – some unusual space-age soundtracks, done in the years before his greater electronic fame! The music here is everything you'd expect from the cover – a great retro-future sort of style, and one that uses conventional soundtrack instrumentation, but with ... CD

Miki Sugimoto

Zero Ka No Onha
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy
Killer soundtrack work from early 70s Japan – most of it quite funky, at a level that matches American blacksploitation grooves of the time – and other cuts that are kind of weird, but in really cool ways – with odd production touches and some cool trippy instrumentation! A ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy
Groovy sounds from Japanese actress Anatatte Sugoinone – presented here in a collection of work from the record label arm of Toho Cinema! The work is all of early 70s vintage, and has a smooth, seductive poppy feel– Anatatte's Japanese language vocals wrapped up in sweet-stepping ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy
Haunting Japanese pop from the early 70s – sung by actress Furyosyonen Sasurai, in a beautifully-presented package of her work for Toho Records! Lyrics are all in Japanese, but there's an appeal to this music that goes way beyond the boundaries of language – thanks to some great ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy
Mad soundtrack work from this equally-mad series of Japanese films – tunes that run the gamut from rough-edged girl rock to seductive crime jazz – offered up in a glimmering assortment of sounds that we wouldn't have access to otherwise! The package appears to bring together music from ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy
A biker soundtrack to end all biker soundtracks – one that shares plenty of elements with better-known entries in the genre, but which also has some really wild and offbeat moments! As with most of the short-lived motorcycle soundtrack era, the vibe here is much more rock than other film ... LP, Vinyl record album
