Sacred Bones, 2018. New Copy Gatefold
The legendary John Carpenter first made his mark with Halloween – both as a director, and as a composer – the second a role for which he's finally gotten the attention he deserved! The original Halloween soundtrack was a masterpiece in understatement – spare instrumentation, ... 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
RCA/Dagored (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Early darkness from Ennio Morricone – an obscure mid 60s action thriller that combines boldly driving numbers with other tunes that slip into some of the spareness of his work for westerns! The work here is as mod and cool as you might guess from the cover – a bit more in a ... 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
Quartet (Spain), 1976. New Copy
An island-themed love story from the Italian film scene of the mid 70s – scored here by one of the lesser-known composers of that time, but in a great way that resonates strongly with much more familiar material! Adolfo Waitzman mixes gentle love themes with dreamier numbers – ... CD
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
Blacula
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Deadlier than Dracula – and a lot funkier too! This is the original soundtrack for the classic blacksploitation horror flick starring the baaadest Drac ever to grace the screen of all those shabby downtown theaters that were still around in the 70s – a wicked batch of wah-wah tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Space 1999
RCA, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of Barry Gray's greatest moments – the ultra groovy soundtrack for Space 1999, the short-lived but well-remembered mainstream sci-fi show from the 70s! The title theme has a nice bit of a dancefloor bounce to it – pre-guessing the disco-copy mode that other space soundtracks were ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Salvare La Faccia
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A very cool Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one that's filled with plenty of "shake" and "psichedelico" tracks – which make for lots of beautiful moments! The music here is on that cusp between spooky and groovy that Ennio Morricone did so well at the time – ... CD
Zorro (with bonus tracks)
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A groovy take on the Zorro sound of yore – put together by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis for a hip 70s version of the character! The style here mixes some older Italian western modes with touches of "Mexican" instrumentation to set the scene – but there's also a brighter ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Italy meets Australia – in a lovely set of grooves written by Piero Piccioni for this little-seen Alberto Sordi film from 1971! The sound is as sunny as you'd expect – with the Piccioni bossa groove used to set the scene for postwar Australia – sometimes coming across with ... 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
Beat (Italy), New Copy
Relatively recent material, but sounds that grew out of a real love of classic cinema between both of the artists involved! The films of Roger A Fratter might be a bit low budget, but the music from Massimo Numa is completely top shelf – served up without large orchestrations, often on ... CD
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
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of our favorite soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a sublime set that's a perfect summation of all his best jazz, bossa, and mod elements – served up in one sparkling set that's gotten countless play on our turntable over the years! The main theme is a classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
Music for a film about witches – but handled here with sounds that are a lot more dreamy than they are spooky – thanks to the fantastic 60s talents of maestro Piero Piccioni! There's lots of elements here that are kind of an extrapolation of bossa nova styles – both in terms of ... 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
Toomorrow
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy
CD...$4.99 11.98
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us ... CD
Sono Sartana – Il Vostro Becchino
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Vasco Vassil Kojucharov never contributed that much work to the Italian scene of the 60s, but he really knocks it out of the park for this obscure western soundtrack from the end of the decade – music that's full of action right from the very first note, and which opens up and inflects the ... CD
Saimel (Italy), 1960. New Copy
A very early soundtrack from maestro Piero Piccioni – and one that's overflowing with jazzy touches too! The music here is for a film about youth – as you'd guess from the cover – but the score has a richer, more mature quality – with lots of those great modern jazz ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1984. New Copy
A wonderfully mellow soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a bit different than most of his other work, and handled with this spacious style that often has a lead instrumental solo sliding out in front of soft orchestrations! The mood is sometimes somber – maybe not as sexy as you'd guess ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1966/1967. New Copy
A pair of really lovely soundtracks from Carlo Rustichelli – back to back on a single CD, with bonus tracks too! Le Stagioni Del Nostro Amore really shows that special style that made Rustichelli such a great bridge between different Italian soundtrack generations – able to hit some of ... CD
Grazie Zia
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, 2018. New Copy 2LP
When David Lynch reworked Twin Peaks in 2017, he went right back to his main soundtrack source for many years – the great composer Angelo Badalamenti, who turns out some excellent work here that really fits the creepy vibe of the show! Titles include "Audrey's Dance", "Accident ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy Gatefold
Music for a film about witches – but handled here with sounds that are a lot more dreamy than they are spooky – thanks to the fantastic 60s talents of maestro Piero Piccioni! There's lots of elements here that are kind of an extrapolation of bossa nova styles – both in terms of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Virgin Witch
Trunk (UK), 1971. New Copy
A fantastic score for the obscure British sexploitation film Virgin Witch – and, like so many musical moments of the genre, a set that's maybe far more fantastic than the images for which it was created! Ted Dicks maybe isn't the best known name in British film scoring – although he ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Warner/Rhino, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Camille 3000 (Italy), 1959. New Copy
The world at night, seen through the eyes of one of the grooviest soundtrack composers of all time – the mighty Piero Piccioni, whose mix of jazzy and moody styles is perfect for this documentary soundtrack about nightlife at the end of the 50s! There's plenty of jazz-based styled on the ... CD
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
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
Linear Labs, 2009. New Copy
All the great instrumental moments from Adrian Younge's score to Black Dynamite – the recent film that was an excellent throwback to the blacksploitation classics of the 70s! Younge's music here is spot-on – just the sort of sounds you might hear from a 70s action score by Johnny Pate ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Classic Italian cop work from the mighty Stelvio Cipriani – one of the few Italian composers who can work in a heavily electric mode, yet still get the richness of that scene's more acoustic years! The music is heavy on guitar and keyboards – but not in the later way inspired by Goblin ... 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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold
An Italian action score from the golden era – but one from the 70s, too – which means that there's some surprising funky and glammy touches in the music! The style here is certainly different from the earlier blood and sandals generation – as the music often uses electric bass, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Qualcuno Ha Visto Uccidere
Beat (Italy), 1973. New Copy
The only thing greater than a Stelvio Cipriani soundtrack is a Stelvio Cipriani soundtrack from the early 70s – because that was the time when the maestro was really at the top of his game, and doing a wonderful job of blending electric and acoustic instrumentation! The music here is a ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the more unusual soundtracks ever done by Armando Trovajoli – for an equally unusual film that starred Monica Vitti as the legendary heroine Modesty Blaise! The modes here are sometimes as groovy as the Modesty Blaise comic, but other times have a nicely slinky, sexy sort of vibe ... CD
L'Harem (with bonus track)
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A surprisingly obscure soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially given that it was recorded at a time that's been quite well documented on record over the years! Yet the music here is also a bit different than the usual Morricone modes – just a handful of tracks, but longer too ... CD
AMS/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
A very spooky score for this film that's also known in America as "The Cat With Nine Tails" – the second collaboration between Ennio Morricone and noted horror director Dario Argento! The album's a bit different than some of Morricone's other work on horror films – and at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A legendary score by Il Maestro from 1969, and the kind of work that shows the influence he had on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds that feel almost electronic at times. The whole thing's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A very dark little score by Ennio Morricone – written for an obscure 1969 period film that starred Marlon Brando (and a very disheveled Brando at that!) – filled with cool tunes that mix the Morricone western mode with some haunting elements that almost have a spiritual approach! Many ... LP, Vinyl record album
Logan's Run
MGM, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Did filmmaking ever get any better than this? We'd be hard pressed to think so – what with Michael York and Farrah Fawcett-Majors running around in the future, living in a hedonistic world in which you can have anything you want, until you turn 30, and are executed! Great stuff – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastically jazzy score from Roberto Nicolosi – a set that's got all the dark, swirling sounds you'd love from a early 70s Italian horror soundtrack – but served up with instrumentation from some of the best of Rome's jazz scene! Players include Gianni Basso on tenor, Cicci ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Quartet (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
Some of the grooviest spy music of the 60s – 3 fab soundtracks all penned by Morricone's right hand man Bruno Nicolai! First up are a whopping 41 tracks from Upperseven is next – one of Nicolai's best soundtracks ever, and done in a really cool way that features lots of bubbling organ ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A sensual soundtrack for the sensual revolution – presented here with a nice balance between dreamy numbers and groovier tunes! Some of the music here actually uses woodwinds in almost a chamber-style mode, while others bring in more of the 60s electric elements you'd expect – but ... CD
