Puppet On A Chain
Silva Screen, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A very groovy action-based score from composer Piero Piccioni – one of his few non-Italian soundtracks from the time! The music was recorded in swinging London at the end of the 60s – and it's got a mod sound that's very groovy, with Hammond and horns and guitar and electric bass all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Waxwork, 1987. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Surprisingly complex music for the second installment in the Evil Dead series – orchestrations by Joseph Loduca that are a fair bit more advanced than the usual keyboard-heavy horror sounds of the 80s! The orchestrations are great – full of the sorts of tension and mood that you'd be ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1971. New Copy
One of the less-remembered records from the era of the giant rock festival – a set of tracks that were recorded during a wild cross-country hippie caravan! Although maybe not another Woodstock, the album does have some long live tracks that are really worth seeking out – in a ... CD
Cool Mikado
El (UK), 1962. New Copy
CD...$3.99 13.99
A modern take on Gilbert & Sullivan's Mikado – one that features instrumental grooves from the great John Barry, plus vocal performances by Frankie Howerd, Kevin Scott, Lissa Gray, and Stubby Kaye! The music often follows the spirit of the classic strongly – but Barry's touch makes ... CD
Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)
Lots of cool keyboards from Francesco De Masi – served up in a style that's a lot more 80s than his famous earlier work – almost as if Francesco was trying trying to get in with the younger horror soundtrack generation! The style is still great, though – with sounds that show all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hell's Belles
Sidewalk, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60's, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats! Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy
CD...$6.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a ... CD
I Sette Gladiatori
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962. New Copy 2CD
An obscure gladiator score from Marcello Giombini – a composer who's best known for his later work in the western mode, especially his classic Sabata soundtracks! Here, though, Giombini almost seems to be trying out for that later era – working with a richer sense of tone than the ... CD
Polizotto 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
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really great pairing of Italian soundtrack talents – the mighty Roberto Pregadio, who gave us the Kriminal and Satanik records – and the great Franco Micalizzi, who served up lots of funky cop/crime grooves in the 70s! This obscure western is scored with a flair that really seems to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Continuavano A Chiamarlo Trinita
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A beautifully sensitive soundtrack for this early film from the team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – very different than most of the other western music of the time – which is a fitting accompaniment to the unique actions of the pair onscreen! There's a fair bit of acoustic guitar in ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1974/1975. New Copy
Two sweet 70s soundtracks from Frank DeVol – both done for classic Burt Reynolds film! DeVol's usually in sleepier territory – at least on his soundtracks of the 60s – but on Hustle, he really lives up to the 70s spirit of the film – and tips in a bit of disco and a bit of ... CD
Il Cittadino Si Ribella
GDM/AMS (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A nice bit of funky crime work from Italy – a soundtrack to an obscure payback film from the 70s, done here with a nice mix of heavy beats, tight guitar, and some cool keyboards! The groove here is very much in the style of some of the best compilations of Italian cop soundtrack work we've ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Melody
Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy
A very groovy soundtrack to this cool British film – starring a young Jack Wild in his pre-HR Puffenstuff days! The film's kind of a mod kids film – with a number of bright and peppy tunes mixed with others that are either more serious or more jazzy – a blend of rock and more ... CD
Beat Girl (plus bonus tracks)
Columbia/El (UK), 1960. New Copy
CD...$8.99 13.99
One of John Barry's first true moments of genius – recorded back when he was the leader of a fab little instrumental combo called the John Barry 7, and was tagged to do some soundtrack work that would forever change the rest of his career! The album's got some incredible instrumental tunes ... CD
Blue Velvet
Varese, 1986. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderfully creepy soundtrack – and one that would provide an important preface to the huge musical legacy that Angelo Baldamenti would give David Lynch for Twin Peaks! This soundtrack features half of Baldamenti's eerie, airy sounds – and half of the kind of old school numbers that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat/Subsound (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
The darker, moodier side of the great Piero Piccioni – not the sort of playful music that most people first discover from the maestro – but instead his sometimes-overlooked talent for putting together a nicely spooky soundtrack! The music is sometimes quiet mellow, other times bubbling ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cineploit (Austria), 2017. New Copy Gatefold
A tribute both to the genius of Ennio Morricone – and to the five years of music created by the Cineploit label – served up in a style that's a wonderful combination of both worlds! The sound is more in the small combo mode that Cineploit gives us on its records – not the full ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, ... CD
