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
Sugar/Universal, 1970s. New Copy
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 ... CD

Philippe Sarde

Cesar Et Rosalie
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the coolest Philippe Sarde soundtracks of the 70s – a set that balances his conventional modes with some much more offbeat moments – including some very cool use of electronics next to some bold woodwinds scored by Hubert Rostaing! The approach is very unusual for Sarde, and his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Terror Vision, 1991. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Don Peake did a great job for the music on this 1991 Wes Craven thriller – mixing all sorts of keyboard elements with a larger selection of sounds – all served up on short little tracks that really create a spooky sort of magic as the album unfolds! Some tunes are twenty seconds long, ... 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

Armando Trovajoli

Il Vuoto
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy
Early work from the tremendous Armando Trovajoli, but a set that shows that the maestro was already at the top of his game – coming off of some great experience on the Italian jazz scene of the late 50s, and able to blend that experience with more cinematic modes! The vibe here is different ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Something weird, and something very cool too – a set that brings together a whole host of strange and unusual tunes from the glory days of exploitation cinema! These cuts are all from a time when the b-movie underground was playing it fast and loose – trying to get more folks into the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar/Decca, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
A cool change from the usual from Ennio Morricone – a later soundtrack, and one that features some surprisingly jazzy tracks! Part of the set features the more standard Morricone orchestrations you might expect – some really great tracks that have offbeat larger arrangements that are ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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

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
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
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1981. New Copy Gatefold
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
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the darkest, moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Ennio Morricone – even in comparison to some of his atonal horror work of the 70s! The vibe here is almost 20th Century avant chamber – a bit like work from Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, but even more experimental – ... 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
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

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
Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great entry in this very groovy series – one that shifts the title a bit from previous volumes, and which also moves the music a bit too – but all while staying pretty darn funky! The set's got much more of a 70s soundtrack vibe than some of the other entries – loads of great ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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

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

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
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

Nora Orlandi

A Doppia Faccia
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Mindblowing work from Nora Orlandi – one of the few major female film composers on the Italian scene, and a talent that we always rank right up there with the male greats of the golden days! This set has a real Morricone-like balance of darkness and light – although the style is ... 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
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
Cinevox (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD
A trio of cool cop soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – all brought together in a beautiful package with a really unified feel! Cipriani's easily one of our favorite Italian composers for the cop/crime genre – as he's got a way of bringing sensitive sounds into play with driving action ... 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
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
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
Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy
Dracula never sounded so funky – thanks to the mighty sounds of the Whit Boyd Combo! Boyd was a porn peddler in 60s Texas, but also cut a few great soundtracks for his smutty films – including this wonderful romp that's full of funky drums, heavy organ, off-tuned guitar, and even a bit ... 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
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

Francesco De Masi

Fuga Dal Bronx
Beat (Italy), 1983. New Copy
A sweet little rumble in the Bronx, scored here by Francesco De Masi – the Italian composer who gave us so many great cop and crime soundtracks in the 70s! The vibe here follows strongly from that work, but updates things slightly with a bit of a shift towards 80s keyboards and production ... 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

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
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
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
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

Piero Umiliani

Quando La Coppia Scoppia
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
An early 80s soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – but one that seems to echo some styles from deeper in his past, including some of of the jazz elements he used in his early days – and some of the more unusual sonic textures he created for his sound library projects in the 70s! ... CD
La La Land, 1970. New Copy
An obscure American film score from the great Michel Colombier – a talent we're used to hearing behind some of the grooviest French singers of the late 60s! Here, Colombier's in a very different vibe – crafting a superb soundtrack with full orchestrations recorded in Hollywood – ... 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!
