Music Box (France), 1972. New Copy
Quite possibly our favorite Ennio Morricone soundtrack ever – THE record that first made our ears prick up many years ago, and acknowledge him as the genius he truly is! The very first note of the record grabs you immediately – a heartbeat-like rhythm, pounding out very slowly before ... CD

Peur Sur La Ville
Warner/Music Box (France), 1975. New Copy
A great Morricone soundtrack for a Jean-Paul Belmondo thriller – a score that starts out spare and brooding, then builds nicely as things move on – with lots of cool bottom-end sounds that make the whole thing really move up from the depths! Some tunes echo the sweeter side of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Music Box (France), 1969. New Copy
A gem of a score from Antoine Duhamel – a French film composer who never got as big of acclaim on this side of the Atlantic, but who really shines at his best with work like this! The score is dramatic, but in a very particular way – with a style that often uses gliding woodwinds ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Music Box (France), 1982/1984. New Copy
Two sweet 80s scores from Michel Magne – still very much at the top of his game here! First up is the sexy soundtrack for Emmanuelle 4 – done in a style that's very similar to some of the 70s films in the series, but with some slight 80s twists in the instrumentation and overall ... CD

A Vous De Jouer Milord
Music Box (France), 1974. New Copy
A great soundtrack from that wonderful period when Francois De Roubaix really discovered electronics – and started using them heavily in his already-mad music! The score is tremendous right from the start – touched with offbeat keyboards and cool little electronic touches amidst more ... CD

Tom Jones
Theater Productions, Mid 60s. Sealed Gatefold
No description available. LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Le Temoin (Il Testimone)
Music Box (France), 1978. New Copy
A groovy French-Italian co-production from the 70s – one that's scored with a very whimsical score by Piero Piccioni! The record's got more of an Italian comedy feel than French work of the time – from a disco-inspired vocal theme at the start, to some sweet slinky numbers in the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A great entry in the Kriminal series of films – one that features some wonderfully groovy work from Piero Umiliani! The music here is Umiliani at his most playful – rooted in jazz, but with warmer touches from bossa and other mod 60s Italian styles too – sometimes set to wordless ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Subterraneans
MGM, 1959. Very Good
A beat-era film classic – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel The Subterraneans! Previn's working here in a mode that's sometimes lush and emotive, but often more upbeat and jazzy – and performed by a host of great jazz players that include Gerry ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Moonraker
United Artists, 1979. Very Good-
Bond goes into space, but Barry stays on the ground – in one of the lesser-remembered James Bond soundtracks of the 70s! The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Our Man Flint
20th Century, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Midnight Express
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good+
It's hard to believe that anyone ever took the electronics of Giorgio Moroder seriously enough to think they'd be the right setting for an intensely dramatic thriller like this – but in the decade when Italian thrillers were doing the same thing, it's kind of easy to see. And if you think of ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sonor/GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Tokyo, the city of paradise – portrayed here in a wonderful early 70s soundtrack from Italian composer Giovanni Tommaso – who really bridges the globe with his music! The style is definitely Italian – especially the soundtrack style of the time – but there's also some more ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brel Lives!
Synchronicity, 1974. Very Good
No description available. LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence (UK pressing)
Virgin (UK), 1983. Near Mint-
A great little record – one that stands as one of the greatest ever recorded by Sakamoto! The soundtrack is for a WWII film that stars Tom Conti and David Bowie – and it's got lots of "eastern" sounding bits amidst washes of synth and sound that are more in keeping with ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A single soundtrack – but one that features killer work from a host of the best Italian composers of the scene at the time – including Stelvio Cipriani, Carlo Rustichelli, and Daniele Patucchi – all of whom come up with some great electric funk for the set! The mix of composers ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Una Bella Grinta
CAM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing set of modern jazz – penned by Italian film composer Piero Umiliani, but also played by a very hip group headed by a young Gato Barbieri! Although Gato's probably best known for his late 60s appearances on the American scene, and his 70s dates for Impulse and Flying Dutchman ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Spare and spooky – and a cool Italian soundtrack for this horror film that's also known (alternately) as The Blade Of The Ripper, The Next Victim, Next, and The Strange Vice Of Mrs Ward. The style is kind of a mixture of Piccioni and Morricone – as some tracks have a spare, moody, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
678 Records (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Totally wonderful work from Ruud Bos – a Dutch composer who did some fantastic groups for sex films and thrillers at the end of the 60s – a good deal of which is brought together on this overstuffed set! The vibe is great – upbeat, jazzy, and very groovy – with a mix of ... CD
