Walk, Don't Run
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. New Copy
A wonderful soundtrack from the great Quincy Jones – one that's maybe not as well-known as his albums for Mercury at the time, but which is maybe even groovier! There's loads of great elements going on in the music – a bit of whistling from Toots Thielemans at times, some wordless ... CD
Durium/AMS (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Great 60s work from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Piccioni – featuring 2 different soundtracks for doctor comedies that starred the great Alberto Soldi! The music is a wonderful blend of the lighter side of styles that Piccioni worked in – with a bit of jazz, a bit of bossa, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
AMS (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastically beautiful record – easily one of Ennio Morricone's dreamiest scores of the 70s! Although the film itself is a western, Morricone's soundtrack is far different than usual – with hardly any traditional western themes at all, and mostly just music that's in that mellow, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Stunningly beautiful work from Ennio Morricone – a haunting set of themes played on vibes, off-key piano, plucked strings, and some very odd-sounding instrument that keeps going "boing!" The music has that dreamy, lilting, minimally melodic style that makes so many other Morricone ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1989. New Copy (reissue)
A late 80s horror film from Dario Argento – scored by 70s prog giants Keith Emerson and Goblin! Emerson and Goblin divide up the music equally – Keith with more solo keyboard cuts that sometimes show off his virtuosity, Goblin often with tunes that are moodier and more spacious, yet ... LP, Vinyl record album
AMS/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
A very spooky score for this film that's also known in America as "The Cat With Nine Tails" – the second collaboration between Ennio Morricone and noted horror director Dario Argento! The album's a bit different than some of Morricone's other work on horror films – and at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the wildest 70s soundtracks by the Italian horror genius group Goblin – filled with a lot of weird distorted electronics, strangely recorded percussion, and oddly-tuned guitar parts and basslines! The overall feel still has the band's electric slightly funky sound firmly in place, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1973. New Copy 2CD
A gem of a record from the legendary Nino Rota – one of his best scores for director Federico Fellini – a bit later than some of their 60s classics, but equally great! The music is filled with Rota's trademark interweaving of dominant themes and lighter moments – the kind of ... CD
Paramount/Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy
A soundtrack masterpiece from French maestro Francis Lai – a film score that's maybe even more globally famous than his work for A Man & A Woman! The style here is quite European, despite the American fame of the movie – and Lai has no trouble blending a sense of light melody with ... 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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1985. New Copy 2CD
A late soundtrack from Piero Piccioni, but a great one too – scored for an equally late film in the career of actor Alberto Sordi – and with lots of the jazzy and groovy modes that you might know best from Italian soundtracks of the 60s! Piccioni's got a great ear for a melody here ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An early 70s score for a pirate movie – but one that's quite different than you might expect – which might be no surprise, given that the film stars the mighty team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill! As with much of their period narratives of the time, the music is nicely mis-matched ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy
A sweet soccer comedy from the 80s Italian scene – one that's scored with a fair bit of electric elements, but also a fair bit of percussion as well! The story's set in Brazil, and the music is this cool combination of more familiar 80s keyboard modes with samba-influenced percussion – ... CD
Motown/Perseverance, 1975. New Copy
An overlooked crime soundtrack of the 70s – one penned by horror composer Phillip Lambro, and featuring a wealth of jazzy work! The style here is a bit darker and more complicated than the usual cop/crime work of the period – but in a way that really makes the record great, and helps ... CD
Poliziotto Sprint
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy
Classic Italian cop work from the mighty Stelvio Cipriani – one of the few Italian composers who can work in a heavily electric mode, yet still get the richness of that scene's more acoustic years! The music is heavy on guitar and keyboards – but not in the later way inspired by Goblin ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A wonderful sound library set from the great Piero Umiliani – and a record that's filled with some of his coolest electronics ever! The feel of the record is very much in keeping with the image on the cover – kind of sci fi, but kind of playful too – a wonderful blend of ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy
Rare work from composer Robby Poitevin – pulled from two groovy Italian films of the late 60s! Tecnica Di Un Omicidio is a great action score, put together with a heavy dose of jazz – great vibes, flute, and plenty of other horns – blasting out with a hip style over lots of tight ... CD
Super Fuji Discs (Japan), 1967. New Copy (pic cover)
A wonderfully moody jazz soundtrack from Japan – one that mixes spare basslines, trumpet parts, and piano – all in a blend that's almost like Miles Davis' famous score for Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud, but a lot more diverse! As with that one, many of the tracks here are quite short ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Varese, 1983. New Copy
Leave it to John Carpenter to take a story about a car that kills people on its own, and turn it into something of weirdness and wonder! Carpenter's film version of the Stephen King book has gone on to become something of a timeless classic in contemporary horror – and one of the biggest ... LP, Vinyl record album
