Chinatown
ABC, 1974. New Copy
Jerry Goldsmith's score for one of the greatest movies of the 70s – done with this spacious mix of jazzy elements that's completely sublime – and a bit like some of Johnny Mandel's best scoring too! The film is set in the 30s, but Goldsmith uses a lot of mature 70s elements in his ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
A very cool little soundtrack, and a set that's maybe a bit different than some of the bigger-name Italian film scores from the giants of the golden age! Gino Conte is a much more obscure figure, and he's clearly opening himself up to a range of sounds that really fit the shifting modes of the ... CD

Valley Of The Dolls
20th Century/Universal, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1967/1968. New Copy
Mod mod grooves from this ultra-hip Japanese combo of the 60s – a garagey group who burn with real intensity in this selection of obscure soundtrack material! The Spiders may not have reached big fame on this side of the Pacific, but back in the late 60s they were clearly the stuff of ... CD
Il Commisario Pepe
RCA/Production Dessinee (Japan), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A tremendous Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one of those "must own" records that grabs us at the very first note! We're already pretty partial to the sweet grooves of Armando Trovajoli, but he's really outdone himself here – pulling together the sweet keyboard lines of Il ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trunk (UK), 1972. New Copy
A wild biker horror soundtrack – and some really moody stuff! The score is making its first-ever appearance here on record – and is a beautiful batch of short, weird tracks written by Brit jazz man John Cameron! Oddly, though, there's just about no jazz at all on the record – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mad Monster Party (colored vinyl)
Rankin-Bass/Waxwork, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Monsters never sounded so groovy! But then again, monsters never had such great animation to get them going – the team of Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass, the animated geniuses behind Rudolph The Red Nose Raindeer, and other kiddie classics! The original film featured a host of monster puppets ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Emanuelle goes east, and picks up some cool exotic touches to add to her more familiar funky grooves! The soundtrack's a really nice change of flavor from Nico Fidenco – still every bit as groovy as his other Emanuelle scores, but mixed with some earthy percussion, haunting flute lines, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
There's a big ol' fuse about to set off the dynamite on the cover – and the music itself often has a similarly suspenseful mode – slow-building tunes that have a slightly different take on the usual style of western tension in 60s cinema, superbly scored by Carlo Savina! Carlo begins ... CD
Toto Diabolicus/Toto Contro I 4/Toto Contro Maciste
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962/1963. New Copy
A trio of soundtracks from 60s films that starred Italian comedy giant Toto – each of them a bit different, given the change of narrative and composer! Piero Piccioni steps off with 15 tracks from Toto Diabolicus – music that mixes a bit of crime jazz with some of his early ... CD
L'Harem (with bonus track)
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A surprisingly obscure soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially given that it was recorded at a time that's been quite well documented on record over the years! Yet the music here is also a bit different than the usual Morricone modes – just a handful of tracks, but longer too ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy
Two great Ann Margret soundtracks back to back on a single CD! The Swinger is Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other ... CD
Sacco E Vanzetti
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual period score by Ennio Morricone – and a record that turned out to be one of his most successful of the 70s! The film, as you might guess from the title, is about the famous and unjust trial of Italian-American activists Sacco & Vanzetti – and in keeping with that setting ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Great horror work from Sante Maria Romitelli – served up in a very nice mix of styles! Some of the tunes here share a spare, tense feel with other Italian composers of the time – while others veer a bit more towards the darker modes of late 60s American scoring – especially in ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Introspective work from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – mostly a western-themed score, one that features spare tunes that focus strongly on his own ability to play guitar with a haunting, ethereal quality! A few tracks have some nice electric instrumentation submerged in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A great Stelvio Cipriani score for a 70s film about a creepy cult that pulls robberies – scored in a style that mixes his best erotic modes with some eerie touches that fit the nature of the villains! All our favorite 70s Cipriani modes are here – especially those keyboards that he ... CD
Un Uomo Da Rispettare
CBS/Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Great work from Ennio Morricone – a moody soundtrack to an obscure 1972 thriller starring Kirk Douglas – scored by the maestro with some especially inventive touches! Morricone's exploring his use of space quite a bit in this one – opening up the sound slowly, and patiently ... LP, Vinyl record album
Magnetic Systems
Cinevox/Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
A tremendous trio from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 70s – Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – all great talents on their own, but a real powerhouse of grooves when they got together on work like this! The Bixio-Fizzi-Tempera name always meant something extra-groovy ... CD
GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A great little album that ranks with the best of the Italian mod generation soundtracks – filled with playful touches and some very groovy tunes! Peppino De Luca's certainly not one of the better-known composers from this stretch – but the album's a top-shelf effort all the way through ... LP, Vinyl record album
