GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A groovy little soundtrack by the great Piero Umiliani! The score is for a b-grade spy film from the late 60s – starring Stewart Granger as (according to the notes) "a seasoned secret agent, but always ready to kiss and to bang!" A lot to live up to, we know – but Umiliani ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music Box (France), 1970. New Copy
Mellow magic from the great Francis Lai – a relatively obscure soundtrack, even if it was issued during a time when he was hitting great fame for Hollywood scores! The style here is in the best subtle modes that Lai reserved for his French productions – heavy on keyboard lines, ala ... 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
CAM/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1979. New Copy
Stelvio Cipriani at his funkiest – taking all the lessons learned from his slinky, erotic sounds of the early 70s – and turning them into a mix of sweet sounds with a great late 70s vibe! Some tracks are upbeat and almost have a clubby feel, others have a great slow-stepping approach ... CD

Stelvio Cipriani

Solamente Nero
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
One of the darkest soundtracks we've ever heard from Stelvio Cipriani – a set that has some of the sweeter, more erotic touches of his other 70s work – but which also features a colder, electronic undercurrent as well – a very creepy style that's very much in the Halloween genre ... CD
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 De Angelis

Il Grande Racket (with bonus tracks)
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1976. New Copy
Fierce funky sounds from Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – a duo who turned out some of the grooviest music on the Italian cop/crime scene of the 70s! The set's a killer right from the very first note – full of fuzz and funk, and lots of heavy rhythms at the bottom – all in a mode ... CD

Georges Garvarentz

Panic Button
Skokiaan (Germany), 1964. New Copy
One of the coolest soundtracks we've ever heard from Georges Garvarentz – a composer who could do straight work when he wanted, but also turn out some nicely jazzy grooves – as he does on this mod classic from 1964! Garvarentz works in a sweet blend of strings and well-tuned ... 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
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
Fantasy, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each ... LP, Vinyl record album

Claudio Tallino

Calamo (with bonus CD)
Aris/Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A pretty fantastic soundtrack to a movie that looks pretty darn spooky – not in the usual Italian horror way, but more in an earthy, ritualistic sort of mode! As part of that vibe, the music's got this great current of sex – some funky elements mixed with grittier sounds – often ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinedelic (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
That's a pretty groovy little cover – and the album's filled with very groovy sounds from the great Fred Bongusto – always one of the more enigmatic composers of the golden age of Italian soundtracks! Fred's 60s work always had a bit of a bossa touch, and that's definitely here at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Christopher Komeda (Krzysztof Komeda)

Rosemary's Baby (180 gram pressing)
Waxwork, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An amazing little soundtrack – one that's as spooky and eerie as the film for which it was written, and which was also one of the few American recordings issued by Polish jazz great Krzysztof Komeda! The core of the album is an especially haunting theme – one hummed as a lullaby by Mia ... 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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
A fantastic Luis Bacalov score for one of the classic films to feature the duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – music that matches the wicked blend of drama and humor that always made their movies so great! The set begins with a great English-language theme – the very catchy "Can ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury/Real Gone, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Very trippy-dippy psychedelic work – written for the soundtrack to Timothy Leary's weird LSD film of the late 60s! Maryvonne Giercarz composed the music, and plays it with a small group that includes her on "Veena", an "ancient Indian instrument", along with guitar and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy
Lively sounds from Ultime Grida Dalla Savana – a 70s exploitation film that continued the "wild world" tradition of films like those in the Mondo Cane series! The setting here is the African savanna, but the music is mostly orchestral – a combination of driving themes that ... 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
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
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the heaviest soundtracks scored by Goblin during the 70s – with lots of funky club influences, and a funky disco sound on a number of tracks that feature vocals by the great European club diva Asha Pulthi. Pulthi sings on the tracks "The Whip" and "The Sound Of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andrzej Korzynski

Akademia Pana Kleksa
GAD (Poland), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
A weird and wonderful lost soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – done for a movie that was essentially a children's story, but with a great array of unusual sounds and very cool 80s keyboards! The music is very much in par with some of Korzynski's other classics – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio Cipriani

Duri A Morire
Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy
There's plenty of action on the cover – and there's plenty of action in the great soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani as well – the sweet mix of funk and keyboards that he always brought to his best crime and cop scores of the 70s! There's some nicely chunky percussion in the mix at times ... CD

Carlo Savina & Aldemaro Romero

Simon Bolivar (with bonus tracks)
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Carlo Savina penned the score for this film about the great liberator of Venezuela – and for the project, he also got a bit of help from that nation's groovy composer Aldemaro Romero! Romero's only credited with a few tracks on the record, but much of the music seems to borrow from his ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
One of the coolest, grooviest soundtracks we've ever heard from Riz Ortolani – an artist who did bigger, more mainstream film scores in the 60s – but who really developed a more electric vibe in the 70s! This soundtrack has Riz working at the top of his powers – bringing in ... CD

Piero Piccioni

Un Italiano In America
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A cool Italian soundtrack from the late 60s – penned by Piero Piccioni with a great mix of sensitive and swinging themes! The instrumentation often features lush orchestrations, used in relatively lean ways – never as heavily romantic or sentimental as you might find in American films ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1958. New Copy
An obscure late 50s soundtrack from the glory days of the Italian toga film – composed by Giovanni Fusco, and conducted by Carlo Savina with this great blend of sentimental and more striking modes! There's still strong ties here to a Hollywood mode of scoring – but there are also ... 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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A surprisingly groovy soundtrack to a cheesy little Sinbad-esque film – served up with a really thumping electric groove that's mixed with more exotic sounds – almost a disco generation take on the earlier style of Italian adventure soundtracks! The work was done Guido & Maurizio ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1964. New Copy
A wonderful lost Nelson Riddle soundtrack – scored for the "gentlemen criminal" show The Rogues, which ran briefly on NBC during the mid 60s – starring Charles Boyer, Gig Young, and David Niven! The work is some of our favorite by Riddle during the period – lightly ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1988. New Copy
A crazy kind of soundtrack for a crazy kind of film – a late 80s Italian comedy about a guy who discovers a cavewoman and brings her back to live in contemporary Italy! The music is about as 80s as you can get – especially in the comedy style – upbeat, and playful – with ... CD

David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, & Others

Just A Gigolo
Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy
A mix of sounds and styles for this film set in Weimar Berlin – with Marlene Dietrich as a madam with male gigolos – one of whom is played by David Bowie, at a time when he was famously living in West Berlin, and working with Brian Eno! The film's nothing like that at all, though ... CD

Stelvio Cipriani

Dov'e Anna
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A set that was originally created in the prime electric years of the great Stelvio Cipriani – but one that has him working on acoustic piano throughout – often using weird effects and production elements to change up the sound of the instrument! There's a great main theme to the ... 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
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Butler (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! ... CD
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP
Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too! So it's only ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vedette/Cometa/Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A totally groovy gem from the great Piero Umiliani – and one of his rarest soundtracks of the 70s – and a set that brings together so many different wonderful strands of his sound! Some tunes have sweeping strings, others have offbeat vocals, some have quirky instrumentation, and a few ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1963. New Copy 2CD
Nino Rota's impressive score for the Luchino Visconti film The Leopard – sounds put together with enough of an epic feel to match the sprawling story of the movie! The music is more orchestral and serious than some of Rota's Fellini work from the same period – a masterful bit of ... CD

Henning Christiansen

Den Rode Skov (red vinyl pressing)
Penultimate Press (Sweden), 1986. New Copy Gatefold
A wild mix of electric and acoustic sounds from Henning Christiansen – done as a soundtrack for a film that's represented with images inside the cover – images that make the movie look as wild as the music on the record! Sounds come from a variety of sources – glass bowls, tubes, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
A great early 70s western score by Riz Ortolani! Una Ragione Per Vivere E Una Per Morire is crafted with a slightly different feel than usual for the time – almost more straight dramatic than the some of the seedier Italian western sounds of the period, with shimmering orchestral passages ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni

Camille 2000
Blind Faith (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alberto Baldan Bembo

Lingua D'Argento
Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Alberto Baldan Bembo isn't the biggest name on the Italian scene – but he's forever been remembered for this totally groovy album from the 70s – the kind of record that really matches the highest standards of the time! Bembo has this way of mixing floating instrumental currents with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni

Camille 2000
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1970. New Copy
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The ... CD

Guido & Maurizio De Angelis

Milano Trema – La Polizia Vuole Giustizia
Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous Italian police soundtrack from the team of Guido and Maurizio De Angelis – one that has a haunting approach served up in equal parts action and sentiment! The core melody here is one right out of Morricone's book of the time – a slow-building, sweet-stepping one that's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An ultra groovy soundtrack and one the rarest records ever by the hip Italian group! Like many of I Marc 4's other legendary efforts, it was originally issued as a sound library release – but this one was actually composed as a crazy 1970 film soundtrack. It's got some wild use of ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold
A surprisingly groovy soundtrack to a cheesy little Sinbad-esque film – served up with a really thumping electric groove that's mixed with more exotic sounds – almost a disco generation take on the earlier style of Italian adventure soundtracks! The work was done Guido & Maurizio ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A very groovy early soundtrack by Morricone! This one's earlier than many of the reissues we've been stocking – and it's got a groovy sound that's made even groovier by some fab vocal work by I Cantori Moderni, a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Francois De Roubaix

Le Saut De L'Ange/RAS
Transversales Disques (France), 1971/1973. New Copy
A beautiful score from the legendary Francois De Roubaix – a soundtrack that has a bit less electronics than some of his famous records, but a sound that's completely amazing all the way through! Francois has this incredible ear for sonic textures – so that he can pull out unusual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henning Christiansen

Executioner
Penultimate Press (Sweden), 1971. New Copy
Impossibly hard to describe music by Henning Christiansen – originally done as a soundtrack for a film, but very much able to stand on its own – with a quality that's as moving as it is experimental! There's vocals on a number of titles, sung by Bodil Hojsgaard and mixed with piano ... LP, Vinyl record album
