Paganini Horror
Beat/Subsound (Italy), 1989. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A zombie with a violin – could there be anything spookier? Maybe not, especially when set to great 80s period music by Vince Tempera – who you may know from more famous 70s Italian work teamed up with the two Bixia brothers! The music here has lots of electronic elements – beats ... LP, Vinyl record album
L'Insegnante
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A playful little soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – maybe not as sex-drenched as you might expect from the cover image, but still pretty nice overall! The music marks that mid 70s shift back towards lighter comedic melodies that some of the composers were using at the time – almost a ... CD
2 Samurai Per 100 Geishe/Franco Ciccio E La Vedove Allegre
Digitmovies (Italy), 1963/1968. New Copy
A pair of groovy Italian comedy scores from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! 2 Samurai Per 100 Geishe has a cover that almost looks like a Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis film poster – and the music is reminiscent of some of the scores for their movies, too – a series of playful ... CD
In Pop
Beat (Italy), 2016. New Copy
One of the stranger projects we've ever heard from the Beat Records soundtrack label – a set of tracks that really lives up to the kid-styled image on the cover – mainly because the vocals here are mostly by a kid-assembled choir! The songs are all tunes from films – music by ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1986. New Copy
A a nice mid 80s Italian comedy soundtrack Bruno Zambini – his work from 1986's Scuola Di Ladri – with 80s style keys and period European dancefloor soul influences in the mix – not as much on the goofy side as we remembered, and lots of fun! There's some definite traces of ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1975/1978. New Copy 2CD
A strange soundtrack to an even stranger-sounding film about some crazy drifters in the old west! The film's got lots of groovy guitar-based tracks with kind of a light spacey sound, and some weird hippieish vocals in the background – a lot more tripped out than you might expect for the ... CD
Sacred Bones, 2015. New Copy Gatefold
The first-ever non-soundtrack album from director/composer John Carpenter – but a record that also draws strongly from all his many years in movies! All the classic Carpenter elements are firmly in place – cool keyboards, compressed guitar parts, and this spacious style of building up ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sacred Bones, 2016. New Copy
Moody magic from the great John Carpenter – title themes to two of his famous films, presented in great new versions by John himself! "Assault On Precinct 13" was one of the first great movie themes from Carpenter – and "The Fog" is an equally eerie bit of music too! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Satan's Slave
Moscovitch (UK), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful score from British jazzman John Scott – an artist who's worked in so many different styles over the years, and is definitely in the moodiest side of his spectrum for this obscure satanic film from the 70s! The instrumentation is conventional, but used in really weird ways – ... CD
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
Moscovitch (UK), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful score from British jazzman John Scott – an artist who's worked in so many different styles over the years, and is definitely in the moodiest side of his spectrum for this obscure satanic film from the 70s! The instrumentation is conventional, but used in really weird ways – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arrival (with download)
Deutsche Grammophon, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A totally wonderful soundtrack from Johann Johannsson – penned for the sci-fi film The Arrival, and at a level that easily matches the instant-classic, genre-defining sorts of sounds used to accompany films like Alien or 2001! As with those scores, Johannsson finds a way of making the music ... LP, Vinyl record album
La La Land, 1971/1975/1986. New Copy 2CD
Great thriller soundtracks back to back on one CD – the soundtracks for both French Connection films, both handled by funky jazzman Don Ellis – plus the even rarer score for the later Popeye Doyle film, by Brad Fiedel – packaged here with other rare bonus tracks too! The music by ... CD
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
Hell's Belles
Sidewalk, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60's, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats! Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot ... LP, Vinyl record album
L'Arcangelo
Rambling (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the grooviest soundtracks we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Umiliani – a sparkling set that's filled with jazzy scatting, mod instrumentation, and loads of other wonderful 60s touches throughout! The music has that special Italian sound that's built on bossa that you'll find in ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A real standout in Ennio Morricone's roster of great work from the time – a record with all the best elements in place – including vocals by Edda Dell'Orso and orchestrations by Bruno Nicolai – but an overall format that's a bit different than usual! Most of the tracks here are ... CD
GDM/Four Flies (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A darkly beautiful score from Riz Ortolani – quite different than some of his better known lighter work of the 60s, and with a really moody undercurrent on most of the set! The instrumentation is nicely offbeat – fuzzy guitar turned down a few notches on the theme – strings tuned ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy
Long before the Sharknado phenomenon hit the small screen, this sweet Italian film came along to woo the world with its wonderfully cheesy representation of aquatic terror! The 1984 date will give you a good idea of what to expect on the screen – and the music by Fabio Frizzi very much ... CD
Akademia Pana Kleksa
GAD (Poland), 1983. New Copy
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 ... CD
