CD...$99.99 109.99
An amazing collection of music from one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time – presented in a hefty book-styled package, and done with a very unique presentation of his work! The package is huge – a hardcover volume with 18 CDs and a 48 page book, all presenting a total of ... CD

Francois De Roubaix

L'Essential Francois De Roubaix
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Some of the coolest soundtrack music you'll ever hope to hear – all played by a cat who could equally handle the sitar, guitar, Fender Rhodes, and electronics pictured on the cover! Francois De Roubaix is easily one of our favorite soundtrack composers ever – a French talent at the end ... 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

Bruno Nicolai

Defense De Savoir
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A cool little soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – penned for a French film instead of an Italian movie – and with a sound that's a bit different than usual! Nicolai makes nice use of some sweeter themes here – a hint of the modes you might find in Michel Legrand or Francis Lai in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roundtable (Australia), 1977. New Copy
A beautifully subtle electronic score for this mid 70s Australian horror film – one done with a lot more care, class, and grace than some of its contemporaries – but with an equally spooky vibe overall! The music comes a bit in the waves hinted at in the title – slow moving ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1989. New Copy
A really wonderful jazz soundtrack by Herbie Hancock – recorded at the end of the 80s, a decade when Herbie was spending a lot of time on keyboards – but with a rock-solid older jazz vibe that really fits the vintage Harlem setting of the film! The music mixes larger arrangements with ... CD

Nelson Riddle

Rough Cut
Quartet (Spain), 1980. New Copy
A sweet Nelson Riddle soundtrack for a Burt Reynolds caper film – served up with a style that updates older Riddle modes for the 80s, but with a surprising current of jazz too! The jazzier modes are emphasized by a few older Ellington tunes in the mix – amidst newer Nelson tunes that ... 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
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD
The great John Barry as a young man – stepping out here on songs that are a lot more rocking than his later fame as a soundtrack composer – served up in a massive 3CD box that collects together singles for Parlophone and Columbia, plus some early rock songs from films! The style here ... CD
Pathe/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A totally excellent soundtrack! This is one of the maddest we've heard from the 70s – with a baroque mix of wah wah funk and sophisticated orchestrations, very much in the mode of work by David Axelrod or some of the backings heard on Serge Gainsbourg's best records. No surprise it's ... 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
Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy
A beautiful and exotic score from the great John Barry – one that never had as much circulation on record as some of his bigger hits of the time, but which is equally well deserving of praise! The music is done for Nicolas Roeg's film Walkabout – set mostly in the Australian outback ... LP, Vinyl record album
Festival/Votary (Australia), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
One of our favorite records ever from the great Sven Libaek – an artist who's possibly best known for his underwater soundtrack work of the 70s, but who shines equally well here on a late 60s album that has him hitting the top of the waves! The music was written for a surf film in 1968, but ... 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

Franco Micalizzi

Hold Up (180 gram pressing)
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
A great little score for an obscure 70s Italian crime film – one that's penned with a much greater range of styles than you might expect! Although the setting is one of crime and action, the music here often has some great warmer touches too – a blend of erotics that slide in between ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A driving Italian soundtrack from the height of the cop/crime years – done with really full arrangements by Franco Micalizzi, in a way that easily rivals some of the best American work of the genre in the 70s! Most of the orchestrations are quite bold – upbeat rhythms with basslines ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A little bit funky, a little bit moody – and a great lost score from one of our favorite Italian composers! Gianni Ferrio's one of the madder geniuses of the Italian scene of the 70s, and this reissue's a great look at his complicated approach to what should be a simple cop/thriller set of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Aris/Sonor (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the greatest moments ever from Italian soundtrack composer Alberto Baldan Bembo – an artist with a great talent for combining warmth and a groove – using subtle strings over rolling basslines and sweet keyboards – all to wrap things together in a really fantastic sound! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro Brugnolini

Superground (180 gram vinyl)
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni Marchetti

Il Magnifico Tony Carrera
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A great one from Gianni Marchetti – the Italian composer we know best for his work on The Wild Eye, but who sounds equally great on this set too! The best tracks have a heavy rhythm at the bottom – not really funky, but kind of mod, and a bit more off-kilter on the slower numbers ... 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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold
A dreamy soundtrack for an obscure Rock Hudson film – one that sports some really wonderful music from Ennio Morricone! The music here is occasionally topped with groovy vocals – often sung wordlessly in a "la la la" sort of mode by I Cantori Moderni, and set to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alec Cheer

Night Kaleidoscope
Trunk (UK), 2019. New Copy
A really great electronic soundtrack – contemporary, but served up with a very spare, electronic feel that takes us back to some of the best horror gems of the 80s! If you're a fan of the music for Stranger Things or Good Time, you'll find plenty to love here – as Alec Cheer works in a ... 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

Stelvio Cipriani

Second Spring
CAM/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1975. New Copy
A great little soundtrack – one that's in a mode that might well be our favorite from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a style that's funky and breezy at once, dreamy and groovy, and delivered with instrumental inflections that still have us scratching our heads at the process! ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A single soundtrack – but one that features killer work from a host of the best Italian composers of the scene at the time – including Stelvio Cipriani, Carlo Rustichelli, and Daniele Patucchi – all of whom come up with some great electric funk for the set! The mix of composers ... CD

Andrzej Korzynski

Possession
Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy
Amazing sounds from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – penned for a legendary horror film from the early 80s! The movie goes way beyond typical grit and gore – with a surreal bent that's made it the stuff of much discussion over the years – and Korzynski's music definitely lives ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
One of the stranger western soundtracks from the 60s Italian scene – scored by one of its most obscure composers too – which maybe gave Pippo Franco a bit more leeway than most to really change things up with his style! The music really moves between a lot of different styles here ... CD
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
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
That's a pretty gruesome image on the cover, but the music is something else entirely – surprisingly beautiful sounds that aren't nearly as spooky as you'd expect – served up in a mix of modes that include some funky bits, some breezy bits, and even a few especially nice blue-tinged ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A sweet sexy jungle soundtrack – issued for a film that appeared with many different erotic titles – but only this one great set of grooves from Stelvio Cipriani! Given the island setting of the narrative, there's a good amount of acoustic percussion in the mix – congas and other ... CD

Patrick Cowley

Mechanical Fantasy Box
Dark Entries, 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Very early music from the great Patrick Cowley – all unreleased tracks, most of which are from a time before his huge rise to fame on the dancefloor scene! This work all represents early experiments with synthesizers – and while some of the tracks have an upbeat groove that foreshadows ... LP, Vinyl record album
GAD (Poland), 2019. New Copy 2CD
A more recent soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – put together for a film by the son of his old partner, director Andrzej Zulawski – and in a way that continues their cinematic legacy from previous years! The roots of the music like in older Korzynski recordings, but ... CD
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
United Artists/BTF (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Although this one's got a striking picture of Africa on the front cover, a pretty captivating title, and an Italian name in the composer credits, it's actually a pretty straight soundtrack – mostly strings and orchestral passages, handled in the dramatic mode that Ortolani used often on some ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Patrick Cowley

Mechanical Fantasy Box
Dark Entries, 1970s. New Copy
Very early music from the great Patrick Cowley – all unreleased tracks, most of which are from a time before his huge rise to fame on the dancefloor scene! This work all represents early experiments with synthesizers – and while some of the tracks have an upbeat groove that foreshadows ... CD
RCA/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A groovy little soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a set of tracks written for a controversial faux-documentary on slavery, done with better musical touches that are more in keeping with the early 70s release of the film! The movie came from the same producers as Mondo Cane – also scored ... LP, Vinyl record album

Patrick Cowley

Afternooners
Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy
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 ... CD

Patrick Cowley

Muscle Up
Dark Entries, Late 70s. New Copy
Moody work from the legendary Patrick Cowley – all music originally composed for use in 70s porno films shot on the San Francisco scene – most of it in the years before Cowley took off in more techno-styled dancefloor modes! These tracks are all heavy on electronics, but the grooves ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), 1960s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 11.98
One of the grooviest cats of the 60s – heard here in an amazing array of jazz, bossa, and soundtrack recordings! Lalo Schifrin first rose to fame working in the group of Dizzy Gillespie, but by the time of these sides he was already stepping out strongly on his own – as one of the ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
An excellent collection of work from the great John Barry – one that focuses on his famous contributions for the James Bond films – but also includes other soundtrack and instrumental material as well! The set begins with the John Barry Plays 007 record – a brilliant album that ... CD

Edwin Astley/Tony Crombie

International Detective/Man From Interpol
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$3.99 13.99
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$3.99 13.99
Not the usual film themes of the late 50s and early 60s – no James Bond numbers or Henry Mancini hits – and instead, a very cool, very well-selected batch of tracks that really opens up this cinematic generation! All of the numbers stand very well on their own – and the set mixes ... CD
Columbia, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic audio tribute to the greatness of the movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – a record that not only includes so many of the great tracks that were playing alongside the story, but which also recreates the way in which they were used! If you saw the film, you'll know that a good ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Shire

Conversation
Trunk (UK), 1974. New Copy
David Shire's wonderful score to The Conversation – a subtle mix of jazz and darker sounds that's one of the best things about this incredible film! Shire's definitely one of the cooler cats of American film scoring of the 70s – and with a groundbreaking project like this, he really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Universal (France), 1965. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Fantastic! This is the French pressing of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really great pairing of Italian soundtrack talents – the mighty Roberto Pregadio, who gave us the Kriminal and Satanik records – and the great Franco Micalizzi, who served up lots of funky cop/crime grooves in the 70s! This obscure western is scored with a flair that really seems to ... LP, Vinyl record album
