RCA/El (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy
Two great Ann Margret soundtracks back to back on a single CD! The Swinger is Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other ... CD
Man Who Fell To Earth – Original Soundtrack
Universal (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
David Bowie's on the cover, but the music here is from a much wider array of musical sources – in a surprising array of instrumental and vocal tracks that really live up to the madness of the famous film! The key contributor here is John Phillips – who not only gives us some excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Introspective work from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – mostly a western-themed score, one that features spare tunes that focus strongly on his own ability to play guitar with a haunting, ethereal quality! A few tracks have some nice electric instrumentation submerged in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rare Jazz & Film Music Vol 1
Adventure In Sound (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Rare material from the great Krzyzstof Komeda – tracks from his score to the film Knife In Water, plus other jazz material too! Knife In The Water is a wonderful score that echoes with the modern tones and phrasing first explored in French cinema during the new wave – Komeda plays ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1971/1972. New Copy
Two Ennio Morricone soundtracks from the early 70s – back to back on a single CD! First up is Un Uomo Da Rispettare – a moody soundtrack to an obscure 1972 thriller starring Kirk Douglas – scored by the maestro with some especially inventive touches! Morricone's exploring his ... CD
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
Amazing work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – a perfect soundtrack to show the warmer sound of his talents, which are sometimes eclipsed by his weirder electronic modes! The soundtrack's from an erotic film starring sex-goddess Zeudi Araya, but despite the kinky origins of the material, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Le Due Staggioni Della Vita
EMI/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy
An overlooked Morricone gem from the early 70s – a soundtrack that's both romantic and eerie – and which effortlessly steps between the two styles! The main theme of the film floats on air beautifully – one of those lighter than light Morricone works that stand out from the rest ... CD
London/Rhino, Early 70s/1997. New Copy (reissue)
A great little soundtrack that really matches the spirit of the film – Quentin Tarantino's own blacksploitation soundtrack – served up here as a mix of classics from the 70s, plus a few special tracks recorded just for the movie! The cover's got a great badass look, and the record ... 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
Schema (Italy), 1975. New Copy LP & CD
One of the coolest Italian soundtracks we've heard in a long time – a wonderful set of tunes that moves from slinky, to easy, to groovy, and beyond! The tunes start out bubbling very spare and slow – with floating piano, moog, and other nice bits – and as the record progresses, ... 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
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
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Seminal Italian cop sounds from Stelvio Cipriani – penned for a key film in the poliziottesco genre in the 70s! The music here steps nicely off the style of Morricone at the time – these cool stepping orchestrations that have this inherent groove, even when moving slow – and lots ... LP, Vinyl record album
Il Prefetto Di Ferro
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music! Il Prefetto Di Ferro has a core sound that's very much in keeping with Morricone's approach to crime and cop films – a bit warmer and funkier at times than his horror ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Emanuelle goes east, and picks up some cool exotic touches to add to her more familiar funky grooves! The soundtrack's a really nice change of flavor from Nico Fidenco – still every bit as groovy as his other Emanuelle scores, but mixed with some earthy percussion, haunting flute lines, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat/Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of the first great Italian cop movies of the 70s – and a superbly-scored film with a really wonderful soundtrack! The DeAngelis brothers are clearly drawing heavily from an American tradition initiated by Lalo Schfrin – using heavy guitar, funky undercurrents, and even some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Hardly the sort of industrial sounds you might not expect – not the noisy European mode of the 80s, nor even the sort of labor-conscious styles of the Folkways generation – and instead, a sweet batch of groovy, lively instrumentals with a strong 60s vibe – of the sort that makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spettro (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever from Bruno Nicolai – a set that has him using all the genius he gleaned from his musical partner Ennio Morricone – then stepping off into some great territory of his own! Some numbers have a Morricone-like blend of wordless female vocals and bossa-s ... 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
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
