Carrier Frequency
Finders Keepers (UK), 1984. New Copy
A rare soundtrack from an unusual UK stage production of the early 80s – presented here on record for the first time ever!

Nino Rota/Armando Trovajoli

Boccaccio '70
RCA/Doxy (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A key early 60s soundtrack from the Italian scene – one scored by two of its rising stars, for a project that features stories from three different directors – Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti, and Vittorio De Sica! All the material is comedic, but with plenty of mod and groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Henryk Kuzniak

Dzieciol
GAD (Poland), 1970. New Copy
An overlooked Polish soundtrack from the start of the 70s – scored for a comedy, but put together with a huge range of unusual and striking sounds! The record begins with a catchy theme – the sort that you'd hear in a Neil Simon comedy a few years later – but by track three, ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy
One of the most obscure entries in the short-lived genre of prog-based horror soundtracks – and one of the best as well – music by the French group Acanthus, served up here for a creepy film by director Jean Rollin! In a way, the use of electric guitar with vampires is maybe even ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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
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
Glenolden/Modern Harmonic, 1968. New Copy
A very groovy soundtrack to a very groovy movie – a near-lost 60s exploitation flick that's got it all – biker gangs, go-go girls, and lots of mod rocking numbers to really fit the scene! The album's got a fair bit of straight 60s rock numbers – the kind of offbeat tunes you'd ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CD
A gem of a package from one of our favorite film composers ever – a huge 10CD assortment of music from the earliest years of Michel Legrand – a set that shows just what an amazing career he was already having in Paris before his mid 60s rise on the international scene! The scope of ... 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
Waxwork, 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A seminal soundtrack from the legendary John Carpenter – one of those key records that showed the world that he was as great of a composer as he was a director! The album's a Carpenter-esque masterpiece – lots of cool, spare electronics – used in ways that make the whole movie a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar/Spikerot (Italy), 1964. New Copy Gatefold
A great Italian soundtrack from that early 60s stretch when jazz was still a very strong part of film scoring – a mode that's borrowed from the French new wave, but used by Italian composers in cooler, groovier styles – as you'll hear in this excellent overlooked gem! The style is more ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Italy), 1961. New Copy 2CD
A wonderful Nino Rota score – composed around the same time as his better-known work for Fellini, but done for a film directed by Luchino Visconti! There's a great mix of darkness and light in the music – some playful themes mixed with moodier moments – set to instrumentation ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles ... 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
Play Time (France), Early 70s. New Copy
Really great work from Francis Lai – that famous film composer from the French scene of the 60s and 70s – stepping out here on a host of instrumentals done as a non-soundtrack project! Many of the tunes are themes that Lai did for movies – including some from fairly rare ... 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
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
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

Carlo Savina

Perversione/Stress
Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy
Two 70s scores from Carlo Savina – both sounding wonderful here together! Perversione is a masterpiece of subtle grooves and sensual moments – handled with a touch of light strings, and plenty of tinkling piano lines that are spacious and sexy, and recorded with just the right sort of ... CD
Caldera (Germany), 1973. New Copy
An overlooked score from the great Roy Budd – one that we're not sure ever made it to vinyl back in the day – and which is presented here in a nicely expanded version! The music has that tense quality that made the non-groovy cuts from Budd's Get Carter score so great – and which ... 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
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
La La Land/Film Music Society, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD
Fantastic funky soundtrack work from Patrick Williams – a cat who started out in jazz during the 60s, but who evolved to be come one of the hippest arrangers to score for the TV screen in the 70s! Williams gave the world so much great music during the decade, but some of our favorite may ... CD

Piero Piccioni

Il Diavolo
WHP (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)
Rare early work from Piero Piccioni – music scored for a 60s film with Alberto Sordi in the lead – maybe a bit more conventional than some of Piccioni's later work, but still wonderfully groovy overall! There's lots of jazz in the mix, and there's a number of tunes that have a great ... 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
Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy
Funky organ jazz from a very unlikely source – a Texas-made porno from 1969, and a movie that dared ask the question "Do prostitutes make good wives?" The music is unusual in that it's actually pretty darn good – nice small combo jazz, often with a good current of funk in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enigma/Real Gone, 1984. New Copy (reissue)
A classic combination of horror film schlock and mid 80s punk rock – served up here in a style that's got that early 80s Cali blend of history, camp, and maybe a slight bit of house-wrecking youthful fire! Titles include "Surfin Dead" by The Cramps, "Partytime (Zombie ... 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
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
Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
That's a near-naked woman on the cover, and the set's a batch of rare tunes by soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone – all from films and scores with a woman at the center! The music is a mix of some of the best slinky, sexy Morricone modes of the late 60s, with some of the moodier, spookier ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

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
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy
An overlooked 80s score from Ennio Morricone – not done for an Italian or American film, but for one of Sam Fuller's later directorial efforts in France! The music is fantastic – very much in the best spirit of some of Morricone's genius from the start of the 70s – almost echoing ... 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
GDM/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A lost treasure from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack written for a crime film starring Charles Bronson & Telly Savalas, and handled with all the spare subtlety of his best work!

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
BTF (Italy), 1975. New Copy
Some of the warmest work we've ever heard from Pino Donaggio – a great little soundtrack scored for an Italian political thriller of the mid 70s, and done with some really wonderful touches! There's a really subtle sense of drama in most of the tunes – a style that's never overblown or ... LP, Vinyl record album
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy
Freaked out sounds from a movie that offers up a look at the struggles of youth at the end of the 60s – a movie that was recorded "on the scene where the action is – presenting 500,000 young Americans doing their own thing!" The sound of the whole thing is pretty darn great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin

Nunzio
MCA/Quartet (Spain), 1978. New Copy
A really unusual soundtrack from the mighty Lalo Schifrin – and one that seems to show off all of his best modes in its shifting range of styles! The film is a somewhat understated story set on the streets of New York – and the music often takes on the same sort of vibe – with ... CD

Riz Ortolani

Gege Bellavita
Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy
A catchy little soundtrack for this late 70s Italian sex spoof – a film in which the lead character's wife discovers his philandering, then decides to pimp him out to the neighbors! The score begins with a jaunty vocal tune – "Nun Me Scuccia" – which is then echoed in a ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1971. New Copy
CD...$6.99 11.98

El (UK), 1960s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Way more than just the usual collection of famous British TV themes from the 60s – as this set offers up some great rare nuggets, unusual versions, and some obscure tracks that are all pretty darn fresh to our American years! As you well know if you're a fan of anything pop culture from this ... CD
