Sacred Bones, 2017. New Copy
John Carpenter takes his classic film themes, and does them one better – by working here with his Lost Themes Band in some wonderful new versions of these famous tunes! The music is still very heavy on that stark guitar and keyboard style that Carpenter virtually invented in the late 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spettro (Italy), 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An early soundtrack from Italian film legend Piero Umiliani – done for one of the earliest movies by Pier Paolo Pasolini, and served up in a mad mix of jazzy styles and larger instrumentation! About half the tracks here have a crime jazz mode that echoes the American scene of the late 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spettro (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)
A haunting 60s soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – done for a TV special on ancient Egyptian culture, and handled with a vibe that's a bit different than some of Umiliani's other work! The tunes have this great use of exotic elements – percussion, flute, and even organ that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Spettro (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A definite killer from the great Gianni Ferrio – one of his grooviest soundtracks ever, and a set that's filled with lots of mod 60s touches! There's a bit of electric sitar, cool bubbling Hammond, and even some jazzy horn parts that make for nice flourishes over the top – all changing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stuntman (180 gram pressing)
CAM/Spettro (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A much more playful album than you'd guess from the action image on the cover – scored by Carlo Rustichelli with some of the best modes he used in 60s Italian comedies! The instrumentation is really great – a sly blend of jazzy and mod bits, often changing up within a single track ... LP, Vinyl record album
Afternooners
Dark Entries, Early 80s. New Copy
The continuing lost legacy of Patrick Cowley – the San Francisco 80s club maestro who made some famous records with Sylvester – but who also did a huge amount of underground sounds for porno films at the time! This set digs deep into that legacy – by featuring music that Cowley ... CD
Joker Of Seville
Kilmarnock, 1974. New Copy
One of the many unusual stage productions created by Galt MacDermot in the wake of his success with Hair – an unusual Caribbean recasting of the story of Don Juan – with music that's a mix of jazz, calypso, and Spanish-styled sounds! All tracks are vocals, with lyrics penned by Derek ... CD
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A little bit funky, a little bit moody – and a great lost score from one of our favorite Italian composers! Gianni Ferrio's one of the madder geniuses of the Italian scene of the 70s, and this reissue's a great look at his complicated approach to what should be a simple cop/thriller set of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sacred Bones, 2017. New Copy
John Carpenter takes his classic film themes, and does them one better – by working here with his Lost Themes Band in some wonderful new versions of these famous tunes! The music is still very heavy on that stark guitar and keyboard style that Carpenter virtually invented in the late 70s ... CD
School Daze
Dark Entries, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Rare work from Patrick Cowley – an artist who most folks know for music with Sylvester in the 80s, but heard here on a selection of tracks he did for porno films at the same time! The music has lots of the sweet electro touches of Cowley's singles for the clubs – post-disco funk, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1973/1976. New Copy
Two spooky Spanish soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is music from Horror Rises From The Tomb – sounds that often feature a very weird, often watery organ line – of the sort you'd imagine some creepy guy playing in order to get ghouls to rise from their grave ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 2000. New Copy
A millennial rebirth for Goblin – and one of the first new records they made since their classic run in Italian cinema – years before their full reformation and international touring fame! The group is reunited here with Dario Argento, with whom they'd worked extensively in the old ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a real standard-setting record that's one of the top choices we go to again and again to illustrate the genius of his music! The score is a fantastic mix of the two best sides of Morricone's work – the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Legendary erotic cinema sounds! All the music is composed by Nico Fidenco, and it's got a vibe that's different from a lot of other Italian soundtracks, and which sounds a bit like some of the French stuff of the 70s, particularly the scoring that was being done by Serge Gainsbourg at the time. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quartet (Spain), 1974/1975. New Copy
Two cool Spanish soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! The music for Night Of The Sorcerers is way groovier than you might expect from the cover – tunes that are almost funky at points, and which really borrow a lot from the coolest late 60s Italian soundtrack use of electric bass ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971/1975. New Copy
A pair of horror soundtracks back to back – both of them pretty darn great! Alfonso Santisteban is amazing on the score for Killing Of The Dolls – working in modes that are hardly horror at all, and instead using all sorts of weird instrumental flourishes and strange twists and turns ... CD
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A classic 70s Italian crime soundtrack – presented here in full format for the first time ever, and filled with wonderful tunes in a variety of styles! There's a quality to the music that really matches the badass image on the front – a bold, forceful approach that has the upbeat ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Dark and moody work from Ennio Morricone – scored for a film that's also known as Evil Fingers or The Fifth Cord, a 1971 crime thriller directed by Luigi Bazzoni – with a sound that's as spooky as you might guess from the cover! The music is very edgy – with lots of strings drawn ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kriminal (picture disc)
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1966. New Copy
An amazing little soundtrack that's every bit as groovy as its cover – a great blend of 60s mod and Italian jazz, all in support of the skeleton-costumed master thief Kriminal! This set represents the first full length presentation of the film's soundtrack – a long-overdue masterpiece ... LP, Vinyl record album
Satanik (picture disc)
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1967. New Copy
The first-ever release of the soundtrack to the movie Satanik – a wonderful soundtrack penned by the team of Roberto Pregadio and Romano Mussolini, who teamed up a few years before on the classic Kriminal! The style here is even more open and creative than before – sometimes straight ... LP, Vinyl record album
