All Score Media (Germany), 2018. New Copy
The cover looks vintage, the music sounds vintage, but the whole thing is actually contemporary – although also recorded as a soundtrack for the title film, which was first released in 1971! Mondo Sangue did something similar with their last album, and the results here are every bit as great ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Beat/CF Soundtracks (Italy), 1967/1968. New Copy
Two really great soundtracks in the early run of the Italian Supermen comedies – both much nicer than some of the later scores in the series! I Fantastici has a 60s playful vibe right from the start – that occasional use of almost march-like drums that you'd find in some 60s comedies, ... CD
GDM/Pentamusic (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A film that's heavy on vengeance – but one that also has a very powerful, positive feeling in its music! Carlo Savina is at the height of his 60s powers here – working with a rich palette of tonal colors that explode on the main vocal number, "Vengeance" – then get ... CD
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
10th Victim/That Man In Istanbul
Mainstream/Intrada, 1965. New Copy
A pair of rare Mainstream Records soundtracks from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! First up is The Tenth Victim – also issued in Italy as La Deccima Vittima – one of our favorite soundtracks of all-time!! Piero Piccioni's score for this one is an insane mix of weird ... CD
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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976/1993. New Copy
Two Italian crime soundtracks – recorded almost 20 years apart, but sounding great here together as a double-length set! First up is Quelli Della Calibro 38 – a fantastic score by Stelvio Cipriani, and one that mixes a bit more action and groove with his usual sense of a dreamy melody ... CD
Harper
Mainstream/Intrada, 1966. New Copy
A hell of a soundtrack from the great Johnny Mandel – maybe his jazziest work of the 60s, and perfectly scored for this groovy cop film that stars Paul Newman as the 45-wielding title character! The vibe here is almost more 60s Quincy Jones than anything else – with sublime ... 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
GAD (Poland), 1967. New Copy
A fantastic lost slice of work from the legendary Krzysztof Komeda – and a set that's quite different than some of his avant jazz classics of the 60s! This album's still got a lot of jazz in the mix, but there's also a lot of the "sweet" mentioned in the title – mostly in ... CD
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Italy), 1978. New Copy
Sweet funky sounds from the great Stelvio Cipriani – very much in the slinky sexy style of his Italian work of the early 70s, but given a bit more of a kick in the rhythms, and some slight island flavors for the film's Bermuda setting! Instrumentation is mostly electric – riffing ... CD
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
Beat/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
It's quite possible that nobody else does a 70s soundtrack better than Stelvio Cipriani – and with a set like this, you'll certainly hear why! While other Italian composers were schooled in the 60s, and came of age in the 70s – often adopting their modes with new instrumentation and ... CD
Beat/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1973. New Copy
A beautifully balanced Italian soundtrack from the 70s – not just the straight crime score you might expect, but a record that really fleshes things out with a lot of depth! True, some of the most compelling cuts are the funky ones you'd expect from such a film, but these are often offset by ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 1974. New Copy
Jerry Goldsmith's score for one of the greatest movies of the 70s – done with this spacious mix of jazzy elements that's completely sublime – and a bit like some of Johnny Mandel's best scoring too! The film is set in the 30s, but Goldsmith uses a lot of mature 70s elements in his ... 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
Trunk (UK), 1970. New Copy
One of the dreamier soundtracks we've ever heard from Basil Kirchin – a beautiful set of tunes that has an organic, almost pastoral vibe at times – as Kirchin mixes together bits of strings, guitar, piano, and percussion with other more subtle sonic elements – sometimes with ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Spasmo (180 gram pressing)
Tiger Bay (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
Sweetness and darkness – perfectly blended together in this classic mid 70s soundtrack by Ennio Morricone! The main theme of the film – "Bambole" – is one of those Mondo Morricone type numbers that floats along on a gossamy sheen – vocals gliding softly over light ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Sea For Yourself
Rural/Modern Harmonic, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic little surf soundtrack record – and one that's very different than both the guitar instrumental and jazz-based albums that showed up earlier in the genre! This one is much more like some of the Australian rock scores that started to show up at the end of the 60s – very ... CD
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
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
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
BMG/Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy
Sweeping strings, African themes, and one of the most beautiful Armando Trovajoli soundtracks of the 60s – a real standout from the already-great Italian scene of the time, and filled with beautiful tunes that are pretty new to our ears! The set's got plenty of those great Trovajoli bossa ... CD
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A sublime late 60s document of the earlier Italian film themes of Piero Piccioni – all served up here as jazzy instrumentals that take us back to the freshness he brought to Italian soundtracks at the start of the decade! Many of these numbers have a brash Rome jazz sort of vibe – that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Keoma/Il Cacciatore Di Squali
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy
Two very cool soundtracks from the legendary team of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – back to back on in a single set! The soundtrack to Keoma is a weird mixture of instrumental tunes that feature piano, guitar, and harmonica, sort of in a spaghetti western mode, but with more of a groovy ... CD
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
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian ... 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
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A really beautiful little soundtrack – and one that's quite different than all of the other late 70s scores that circulated under the Emmanuelle name! This film came out years before that big cycle of sexploitation movies – and also was not part of that series at all – and while ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar/Four Flies (Italy), 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Bruno Nicolai's soundtrack for the second and last film in the Sabata trilogy from the early 70s – noteworthy for the fact that Yul Brynner took over the starring role, and that Nicolai handled the scoring of the film! Nicolai's style here borrows a lot from frequent partner Ennio Morricone ... LP, Vinyl record album
Omega Productions (France), 1985. New Copy
Paul Piot is a name we know from the French sound library scene of the 70s, but here he works with partner Michael Roy to make some music that's as creepy as the cover! Yet the sounds here aren't the usual keyboards and electronics from the video horror generation – as Piot definitely brings ... CD
Tiger Bay (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A dark and extremely avant garde soundtrack from the great Ennio Morricone – one that's done in collaboration with his own Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an ensemble with roots in film scoring, but expressions that are more in the mode of 20th century avant! The music is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Novecento (aka 1900)
GDM (Italy), 1976. New Copy
One of the greatest Ennio Morricone dramatic scores of the 70s – composed for Bernardo Bertolucci's epic film Novocento, and featuring some of Morricone's best serious scoring at the time! The work's got a sense of majesty and authority that befits the historical setting of the film – ... CD
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
Legacy, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Not the instrumental music from the second season of the Stranger Things series – but instead all of those very cool early 80s songs that are always playing in the background – tunes that have turned out to be almost as important to the show as the 70s music was to the Guardians Of The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sea For Yourself (with bonus DVD)
Rural/Modern Harmonic, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic little surf soundtrack record – and one that's very different than both the guitar instrumental and jazz-based albums that showed up earlier in the genre! This one is much more like some of the Australian rock scores that started to show up at the end of the 60s – very ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Missing Vinyl (Greece), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Incredible soundtrack work from Vangelis Papathanassiou of Aphrodite's Child – impressive, moody compositions for Sex Power – a forgotten French film with Jane Birkin! We know nothing about the film and it's hard to believe it's so little remembered given how amazing (and amazingly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mad Mutilator/Trepanator
Omega Productions (France), 1983/1992. New Copy
That's a creepy little cover there – but the music inside has a lot more emotional depth than you might expect! The set begins with three tracks by Jean Richard from the film Mad Mutilator – music that has a much prettier electronic approach than we were expecting, especially on one ... CD
Death Waltz (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Spooky Morricone galore – a really haunting little soundtrack that seems to take up where Rosemary's Baby left off! The great Edda Dell'Orso makes lots of appearances here – singing wordlessly, but in a way that's a lot darker than some of her other work of the period – almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
GAD (Poland), 1967. New Copy
A fantastic lost slice of work from the legendary Krzysztof Komeda – and a set that's quite different than some of his avant jazz classics of the 60s! This album's still got a lot of jazz in the mix, but there's also a lot of the "sweet" mentioned in the title – mostly in ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Flying Dutchman/Modern Harmonic, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forza G (G-Force)
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A fantastic album from Italian soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – done for a film titled G-Force, and which deals with jet pilots – but one that moves at a much slinkier pace overall! The tunes here bubble and brew in that early 70s Morricone warmth that we love so much – not ... CD
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
