GDM/Four Flies (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A darkly beautiful score from Riz Ortolani – quite different than some of his better known lighter work of the 60s, and with a really moody undercurrent on most of the set! The instrumentation is nicely offbeat – fuzzy guitar turned down a few notches on the theme – strings tuned ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Moscovitch (UK), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful score from British jazzman John Scott – an artist who's worked in so many different styles over the years, and is definitely in the moodiest side of his spectrum for this obscure satanic film from the 70s! The instrumentation is conventional, but used in really weird ways – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lucifer Rising
Ajna Offensive, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible document of a lost avant cinema classic – Bobby Beausoleil's rare soundtrack to the late Kenneth Anger film Luicfer Rising. The music, like the film, is incredibly spooky stuff – long, moody guitar-based tracks that spin out into the darkness – invoking the demonic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Le Saut De'Lange/Les Anges
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
A beautiful score from the legendary Francois De Roubaix – a soundtrack that has a bit less electronics than some of his famous records, but a sound that's completely amazing all the way through! Francois has this incredible ear for sonic textures – so that he can pull out unusual ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy
Two unusual western scores from French maestro Francis Lai – an artist who's usually better known for his romantic soundtracks of the 60s and 70s! Les Petroleuses has a nice variety of sounds – some of the slinky, sexy, Euro-styled numbers you'd expect from Lai in the early 70s, and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1973. New Copy
Slinky sounds from Riz Ortolani – a soundtrack that's got the sort of sexy 70s vibe that you might expect from the cover! The film's story of interracial love is cast best in the title tune "Contract" – a swirling blend of light woodwinds, electric bass, and percussion – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Eat It (Mangiala)
Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A groovy soundtrack to a weird weird movie – 1969's Mangieala, aka Eat It – a film about efforts to sell a canned meat product as an aphrodisiac! The story inspires Ennio Morricone to turn out some equally weird and wonderful sounds – music that has all the sexiness you'd expect ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Beautifully weird music for this completely bizarre Italian horror film – one that's got as much sex as it does slash – which you might guess from the "secret orgy" in the title! The tunes are a strange variety of numbers – with shifting instrumentation that can feature ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Too Late Blues
Doxy, 1961. New Copy
One of the coolest jazzy soundtracks of the early 60s! David Raksin's other great film work has jazz elements, too, but he goes all in on Two Late Blues. It has these incredible small combo cues – with little more than piano, drums, bass and horns – but they still manage to deliver ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy
A beautiful and exotic score from the great John Barry – one that never had as much circulation on record as some of his bigger hits of the time, but which is equally well deserving of praise! The music is done for Nicolas Roeg's film Walkabout – set mostly in the Australian outback ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Roundtable (Australia), 1977. New Copy
A beautifully subtle electronic score for this mid 70s Australian horror film – one done with a lot more care, class, and grace than some of its contemporaries – but with an equally spooky vibe overall! The music comes a bit in the waves hinted at in the title – slow moving ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
International Detective/Man From Interpol
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
The cover's creepy enough – and the music is too – an instrumentally complicated score – one that features heavy guitars one minute, then strings, then stark, spare instrumentation the next – including weird bass bits and electric harpsichord passages that are very nice! ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Il Viaggio/Amanti
Quartet (Spain), 1968/1974. New Copy 2CD
Two great soundtracks from Manuel De Sica – both done for films directed by his father, the great Vittorio De Sica! First up is Il Viaggio – a score that brings together beautifully sentimental melodies with some of the lighter, more sophisticated Italian styles of the time – ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1982. New Copy 2CD
An unusual later soundtrack from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – scored for an early 80s American thriller with Tom Skerritt in the lead – and done in a style that's much deeper than you'd expect! The core film score features a blend of melancholy strings that move along in some very ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Toho/Cinema Kan (Japan), 1960s. New Copy
A totally cool collection of Japanese sci-fi music from the 60s – all used originally in films from Toho Studios – the same folks who've given us the legendary Godzilla films over the years! The music here is maybe a bit like some of the Godzilla scores, but also a lot more offbeat, ... CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most striking Morricone soundtracks we've heard from the early 70s – a really dark little score that's filled with harsh tones and cool electronic effects! The film itself deals with the hardship of life in an Italian factory – and Morricone's music is filled with machine-lik ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Morricone 60 (CD & DVD)
Decca, 2016. New Copy CD & DVD
We're not sure why Ennio Morricone is making the "shush" sound at us on the cover – as the set's such a wonderful celebration of his music, it makes us want to cheer! The performance here is all new – and features Morricone conducting the Czech National Symphony in a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 2016. New Copy
The most amazing and groundbreaking American musical phenomenon in ages gets some love from the hip hop and neo soul community that helped inspire it – spearheaded by Hamilton driving force Lin-Manuel Miranda and the mighty Questlove of The Roots! Much like the musical itself, there's a ... CD
