Lakeshore, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Great work from one of the best contemporary soundtrack artists going – Cliff Martinez's score for Drive – done at a level that's got a really classic vibe! And by classic, we mean classic 80s electronic – as Cliff has this spare, moody style that's really wonderful – ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Vampiri/Caltiki Il Mostro Immortale
Digitmovies (Italy), 1956/1959. Used 2 CDs
2 incredibly dark Italian horror scores from the 50s – both recorded long before the bloody years of the 70s, when Italian soundtracks were a bit more in keeping with styles used elsewhere in the western world! CD 1 features Roman Vlad's score to I Vampiri – a driving, dramatic ... CD

Holy Mountain
Abkco/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy
Mindblowing music for the Alejandro Jodorowsky film The Holy Mountain – even more compelling and complex than his sounds for El Topo! The score is a wonderful mix of earthy, organic elements and a few more composed and equally groovy parts – handled by Jodorowsky in collaboration with ... CD

Sanctuary (UK), 1970s. Used
A massive tribute to one of the greatest 70s soundtrack composers – England's mighty Roy Budd, the man responsible for Get Carter and some other incredible gems! This package is the first to really dip into Roy's classic 70s work – and it does a great job of bringing together funky ... CD

Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. Used
A strange, eerie psychedelia and prog steeped soundtrack to the Jean Rollins French vampire film Le Frisson Des Vampires – played by the group Acanthus – a great little set of evocative, stripped down macabre instrumentals and trippy bits of dialogue! Finders Keepers describes the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Elektra, 1981. Very Good+
Tangerine Dream's incredible, synthy soundtrack to Thief – which is one of the coolest crime flicks ever made in the City Of Chicago – and as great as director Michael Mann and star James Caan are, the soundtrack has a lot to do with that! The droning synth and guitar sound sets the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ode, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Per Amore
RCA (Italy), 1976. Near Mint-
Warmly romantic work from Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack in a style that we really like a lot! Side one of the set features orchestrations by Morricone that have him at his lovely best – strings sliding back and forth in sweet melodies, not dark ones, with nicely isolated moments that ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Universal (France), 1976/1979. Used
Sarde soundtracks for 2 Roman Polanski films – Tess and The Tenant. Given that Tess is based on the Thomas Hardy novel, the soundtrack's relatively traditional – with warmly sentimental themes that capture the emotion of the settings. The Tenant is much more in the spookier Polanski ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
L'Imprecateur/Interdit Aux Moins De 13 Ans
Music Box (France), 1977/1982. Used
A split set of soundtracks – both penned for films directed by Jean-Louis Bertuccelli! Richard Rodney Bennett really charms us with his score for L'Imprecateur – easily one of his most carefully creative film pieces of the 70s – and really nicely balanced between space and sound, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La Grande Lessive/L'Etalon
Universal (France), 1968/1969/1972/1973/1975/1977. Used
Two composers, six films, and a heck of a lot of groovy music – all penned for the movies of Jean-Pierre Mocky in the 60s and 70s – and scored by Francois De Roubaix and Eric Demarsan! De Roubaix dominates most of the set – which is fine by us, because his music here features all ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s. Used
Another incredible set of mad, moody film music from Francois de Roubaix – some featuring vocals by Serge Reggiani. Roubaix is a pretty obscure name when you consider the hallowed halls of worshipped composers – but trust us, it's as likely due to his unique vision and lack of a huge ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dagored (Italy), 1965. Used
4 great Italian soundtracks from the 60s – all written for the 4-part Gamma 1 "quadrilogy", and done with a really dramatic flair! The style here is highly orchestral – not nearly as electronic or groovy as other sci fi from the time – and almost in the mode of some of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dagored (Italy), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
An x-rated horror film from the team of Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey, but one that gets a surprisingly classic sort of soundtrack from the great Claudio Gizzi! Right from the start, Gizzi's music is filled with a sensitivity that's quite striking – this beautiful, poetic quality that often ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
GDM/Quartet (Spain), 1969/1970/1971. New Copy 3CD
A classic Italian western trilogy from the start of the 70s – presented here with all three soundtracks in a special limited package! First up is the first Sabata film – Ehi Amico C'E Sabata Hai Chiuso – a killer western soundtrack from Marcello Giombini! The first film in the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CAM (Italy), 2015. New Copy 3LP
A triple-threat of rare horror soundtracks from Goblin – packaged here in a very limited collection! First up is Profondo Rosso – one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound is virtually a blueprint for ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lupin The 3rd
Columbia/Victory (Italy), 1980. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the coolest cuts you'd ever hear for a 70s cartoon – lots of jazzy, upbeat grooves from Japan – all scored for the famous Lupin The 3rd series! The music is the brainchild of keyboardist Yuji Ohno – a jazz musician at heart, and a player who allows himself plenty of solo ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Killerfish
Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy
Long before Sharknado hit the small screen, the team of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis served up the groovy score for Killerfish – a great aquatic thriller from the later years of disco, given a very groove-heavy score by the Italian brothers! The leadoff track – "The Winner Takes ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Contour, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Nice funky 70s instrumentals, composed by Alan Tew, and performed by the group Bullet – a hip electric combo with a tight sound library feel. The overall style reminds us of Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones cop show work from the early 70s – with some tasty keyboards, plenty of riffing, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
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
