CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
All Score Media (Germany), 2016. New Copy
A contemporary album, but one that serves as an overdue soundtrack for Luchino Martello's film Island Of The Damned from 1978 – presented here with just the right sort of sounds from Mondo Sangue! The music hits that perfect mix of groovy styles and island elements that we love in Italian ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A very weird little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – earlier than most of his classics, and done in a style that's much more conventionally horror-based! The film may be known to American viewers as Nightmare Castle, and it boasts a score that's heavy on the pipe organ – stretched out ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
A sweet little soundtrack – filled with the sort of late 70s/early 80s gems you'd expect from this movie by Richard Linklater! The film's been called a sequel to Dazed & Confused, and the music is too – classic tracks pulled from roughly the same time period as the music used on ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Trunk (UK), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
A fantastic soundtrack for an incredibly groovy film – a landmark British comedy that received some sublime musical treatment from Dudley Moore – who was one of the stars of the movie! Moore's a surprisingly great jazz pianist, and provides a rich blend of jazz instrumentals, groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Four Flies (Italy), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold
Fuzzy funk-steeped Italian soundtrack grooves of the finest, funkiest early 70s caliber – rare and unreleased gems mined from the RCA Film Music Vaults – with choice bits by Francesco De Masi, Gianni Marchetti, Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, Piero Umiliani and many more! This is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Linear Labs, 2009. New Copy
The note-perfect funky musical score to blacksploitation homage/spoof Black Dynamite – and an honest and true tribute to the originators of the genre from composer & performer Adrian Younge! We absolutely love that Younge doesn't go for a comic take on the style, and shows a true feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Dario Agento hired aging prog rock star Keith Emerson for this 1980 horror soundtrack, and the overall approach used by Emerson is similar to some of his solo instrumental work from the late 70s – with lots of keyboard-heavy tracks (acoustic piano, organ, electric piano) that show off Emerson' ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Laure
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
An obscure bit of 70s erotica soundtrack grooves from Franco Micalizzi – an Italian take on the legendary French erotic film Emmanuelle – a film written and co-directed the actual Emmanuelle author Emanuelle Arsan! Given all that, the template is in place for a real gem in mid 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A real standout in Ennio Morricone's roster of great work from the time – a record with all the best elements in place – including vocals by Edda Dell'Orso and orchestrations by Bruno Nicolai – but an overall format that's a bit different than usual! Most of the tracks here are ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1979. New Copy
Stelvio Cipriani wins us all over again with his genius-level approach to film music – and his ever-constant way of bringing totally great sounds to movies that might otherwise have only the lowest level of scoring! This movie is a great illustration of that genius at work – as ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Papaya Dei Caraibi
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
Sexy sounds from the Italian scene of the 70s – music that's every bit as warmly erotic as you'd imagine from the cover! But as you might guess from Stelvio Cipriani, there's also a nice undercurrent of funk, too – kind of a gentle groove that's almost like some Euro sound library cuts ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat/Subsound (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An early 80s score for Italian horror maven Lucio Fulci by composer Fabio Frizzi – pretty chilling, but also in a bit of a post disco groove – appropriate for the time period and especially so given the NYC setting! The flick sounds like it owes more than a little bit to Rosemary's ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Les Demons
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
If that creepy cover image alone isn't more than enough to make you want this record, the magical music within will certainly tip the balance! Jean-Bernard Raiteux may be best known for his French funk sounds in the Harlem Pop Trotters, but he's even more weird and wonderful here – turning ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Duse/Beat/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembe ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
A&M/Varese, 1976. New Copy
Quincy Jones may be best remembered for his funky soundtrack work of the 70s – but the man can also hit a deeper, more serious vein when he wants – as he does on this ambitious album-length project inspired by the landmark Roots mini-series! The music isn't a straight soundtrack from ... CD
