Trunk (UK), 1970. New Copy
One of the dreamier soundtracks we've ever heard from Basil Kirchin – a beautiful set of tunes that has an organic, almost pastoral vibe at times – as Kirchin mixes together bits of strings, guitar, piano, and percussion with other more subtle sonic elements – sometimes with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sea For Yourself
Rural/Modern Harmonic, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic little surf soundtrack record – and one that's very different than both the guitar instrumental and jazz-based albums that showed up earlier in the genre! This one is much more like some of the Australian rock scores that started to show up at the end of the 60s – very ... CD
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Think what you may about Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota – to our ears, Piero Umiliani brought as much to Italian film scoring in the 60s as those two giants – even if his music was never given the international fame it deserved! This great late 60s collection brings together some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A sublime late 60s document of the earlier Italian film themes of Piero Piccioni – all served up here as jazzy instrumentals that take us back to the freshness he brought to Italian soundtracks at the start of the decade! Many of these numbers have a brash Rome jazz sort of vibe – that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Harper
Mainstream/Intrada, 1966. New Copy
A hell of a soundtrack from the great Johnny Mandel – maybe his jazziest work of the 60s, and perfectly scored for this groovy cop film that stars Paul Newman as the 45-wielding title character! The vibe here is almost more 60s Quincy Jones than anything else – with sublime ... CD
Rhino, 2018. New Copy 2LP
When David Lynch reworked Twin Peaks in 2017, he went right back to his main soundtrack source for many years – the great composer Angelo Badalamenti, who turns out some excellent work here that really fits the creepy vibe of the show! Titles include "Audrey's Dance", "Accident ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Rhino, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solamente Nero
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
One of the darkest soundtracks we've ever heard from Stelvio Cipriani – a set that has some of the sweeter, more erotic touches of his other 70s work – but which also features a colder, electronic undercurrent as well – a very creepy style that's very much in the Halloween genre ... CD
Keoma/Il Cacciatore Di Squali
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy
Two very cool soundtracks from the legendary team of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – back to back on in a single set! The soundtrack to Keoma is a weird mixture of instrumental tunes that feature piano, guitar, and harmonica, sort of in a spaghetti western mode, but with more of a groovy ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 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 ... CD
We Want Sounds (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold
A masterpiece of moody keyboards from the great Dave Grusin! The Friends of Eddie Coyle is a wonderful music for a superb late Robert Mitchum film – never available on record, at least that we know of – and filled with the kind of groovy, funky, keyboard-heavy lines that make some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A groovy little soundtrack by the great Piero Umiliani! The score is for a b-grade spy film from the late 60s – starring Stewart Granger as (according to the notes) "a seasoned secret agent, but always ready to kiss and to bang!" A lot to live up to, we know – but Umiliani ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful ocean-based soundtrack – the kind of really special music we'd put right up there with the best seafaring scores by Sven Libaek or Francois De Roubaix! The style here draws on some of the best soundtrack modes of the late 60s – as the music is often jazzy, with some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carosello/AMS (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really spooky soundtrack from Pino Donaggio – even if the instrumentation is somewhat standard! The music is for the great Nicolas Roeg film Don't Look Now – set in a slowly rotting Venice, and filled with moody mystery and hints of horror – but all elements that never fully ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Bruno Nicolai's soundtrack for the second and last film in the Sabata trilogy from the early 70s – noteworthy for the fact that Yul Brynner took over the starring role, and that Nicolai handled the scoring of the film! Nicolai's style here borrows a lot from frequent partner Ennio Morricone ... LP, Vinyl record album
Omega Productions (France), 1985. New Copy
Paul Piot is a name we know from the French sound library scene of the 70s, but here he works with partner Michael Roy to make some music that's as creepy as the cover! Yet the sounds here aren't the usual keyboards and electronics from the video horror generation – as Piot definitely brings ... CD
Forza G (G-Force)
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A fantastic album from Italian soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – done for a film titled G-Force, and which deals with jet pilots – but one that moves at a much slinkier pace overall! The tunes here bubble and brew in that early 70s Morricone warmth that we love so much – not ... CD
Mad Mutilator/Trepanator
Omega Productions (France), 1983/1992. New Copy
That's a creepy little cover there – but the music inside has a lot more emotional depth than you might expect! The set begins with three tracks by Jean Richard from the film Mad Mutilator – music that has a much prettier electronic approach than we were expecting, especially on one ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1967. New Copy
A fantastic lost slice of work from the legendary Krzysztof Komeda – and a set that's quite different than some of his avant jazz classics of the 60s! This album's still got a lot of jazz in the mix, but there's also a lot of the "sweet" mentioned in the title – mostly in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Moving Music (Norway), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
We're not sure what "parking bandits" might be – but Pete Knutsen gave them a very groovy sound on this obscure soundtrack from the early 80s! The album's definitely got a vibe that fits the era – keyboards, fuzzy guitar, and upbeat tunes that aren't that different from early ... LP, Vinyl record album
Moving Music (Norway), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A killer 70s soundtrack from the Norwegian scene – one that's filled with spare funk groovers and plenty of keyboards – in a way that reminds us a lot of Dave Grusin's music for Three Days Of The Condor – or maybe Henry Mancini on The Thief Who Came To Dinner! Pete Knutsen ... LP, Vinyl record album
Caroline, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The original score to the film – with titles that include "Ignore It", "Mama", "Family Man", "Boiling Point", "Till The Day I Die", "Genuine Justice", "Les", "Something New", "Kids Raising A Kid", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strange Disc, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The incredible soundtrack for the black cinema classic Ganja & Hess – a film that's often cited in the history of blacksploitation films, but which is much deeper overall! In some ways, both the movie and soundtrack are like Sweet Sweetback's Baadass Song – created in the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
Intrada, Late 60s. New Copy
A pair of Quincy Jones soundtracks – both quite different, but working well together here in a single package! First up is Mackenna's Gold – a western soundtrack – but one that's groovier than you might expect, given that the music was done by Quincy Jones with some vocals by ... CD
Cinewax/Light In The Attic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
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
Sweet Smell Of Success (with bonus track)
Decca/Verve, 1957. New Copy
A jazz soundtrack double-header – one that features both the small combo and larger band version of the soundtrack to The Sweet Smell Of Success! Part of the CD features the Chico Hamilton Quintet's album of music – a wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s. The combo was a key ... CD
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the heaviest soundtracks scored by Goblin during the 70s – with lots of funky club influences, and a funky disco sound on a number of tracks that feature vocals by the great European club diva Asha Pulthi. Pulthi sings on the tracks "The Whip" and "The Sound Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A sweet sexy jungle soundtrack – issued for a film that appeared with many different erotic titles – but only this one great set of grooves from Stelvio Cipriani! Given the island setting of the narrative, there's a good amount of acoustic percussion in the mix – congas and other ... CD
International Detective/Man From Interpol
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
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
Rhino, 2018. New Copy 2LP
Not the first famous Twin Peaks soundtrack – but instead a big collection of all the cool tunes that David Lynch pulled together for the reboot of the series in 2017! Titles include "The World Spins" by Julee Cruise, "Snake Eyes" by Trouble, "My Prayer" by The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ariete/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Brilliant Morricone material from the end of the 60s – penned for a film that took up the same "gang of guys" mode used in The Dirty Dozen or Magnificent Seven! As usually with the maestro at this point in his career, the soundtrack is it's own very special thing – away from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Motown/Perseverance, 1975. New Copy
An overlooked crime soundtrack of the 70s – one penned by horror composer Phillip Lambro, and featuring a wealth of jazzy work! The style here is a bit darker and more complicated than the usual cop/crime work of the period – but in a way that really makes the record great, and helps ... CD
Walk, Don't Run
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. New Copy
A wonderful soundtrack from the great Quincy Jones – one that's maybe not as well-known as his albums for Mercury at the time, but which is maybe even groovier! There's loads of great elements going on in the music – a bit of whistling from Toots Thielemans at times, some wordless ... CD
Paramount/Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy
A soundtrack masterpiece from French maestro Francis Lai – a film score that's maybe even more globally famous than his work for A Man & A Woman! The style here is quite European, despite the American fame of the movie – and Lai has no trouble blending a sense of light melody with ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1985. New Copy 2CD
A late soundtrack from Piero Piccioni, but a great one too – scored for an equally late film in the career of actor Alberto Sordi – and with lots of the jazzy and groovy modes that you might know best from Italian soundtracks of the 60s! Piccioni's got a great ear for a melody here ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An early 70s score for a pirate movie – but one that's quite different than you might expect – which might be no surprise, given that the film stars the mighty team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill! As with much of their period narratives of the time, the music is nicely mis-matched ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy
A sweet soccer comedy from the 80s Italian scene – one that's scored with a fair bit of electric elements, but also a fair bit of percussion as well! The story's set in Brazil, and the music is this cool combination of more familiar 80s keyboard modes with samba-influenced percussion – ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A strong score for one of the classic Ringo films of the spaghetti western scene – served up here in a great mix of dramatic elements and a few more punctuated passages! The music is practically archetypal spaghetti scoring throughout – with great use of slow-strummed electric guitar, ... CD
Una Giornata Spesa Bene
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP
A rare one from Bruno Nicolai – a composer that many people recognize from his work with Ennio Morricone, but one who can sound even groovier on his own! Bruno's got some really wide-open ears on the set – able to bring in lots of unusual sounds and odd inflections, while still keeping ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1988. New Copy
A crazy kind of soundtrack for a crazy kind of film – a late 80s Italian comedy about a guy who discovers a cavewoman and brings her back to live in contemporary Italy! The music is about as 80s as you can get – especially in the comedy style – upbeat, and playful – with ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1964. New Copy
A creepy cover, and some creepy music as well – a starkly dramatic 60s score from Italian maestro Carlo Rustichelli! The style of the music predates some of the more famous Italian horror to come in the late 60s, but it's still directed with a similar thoughtfulness and sense of sound – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy
A great early 70s western score by Riz Ortolani! Una Ragione Per Vivere E Una Per Morire is crafted with a slightly different feel than usual for the time – almost more straight dramatic than the some of the seedier Italian western sounds of the period, with shimmering orchestral passages ... CD
Cinevox/Digitmovies (Italy), 1984. New Copy
Stelvio Cipriani works here in a mode that's maybe a bit more string-heavy than some of his 70s work – but still used with that great sense of compression and space that always makes his music so wonderful! Unlike some other Italian soundtracks of 80s vintage, this one really has the sense ... CD
Appuntamento A Dallas
Dagored (Italy), 1964. New Copy
A really unusual Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one that mixes some of the jazzy modes of the time with a few elements that might sound a bit more "Dallas" – like occasional acoustic guitar or barroom piano! The tracks here are mostly short, but work together in a nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Veruschka (picture disc)
Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Il Gatto
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy
Groovy Morricone! This excellent lost score from the mid 70s features some essential tracks for fans of Il Maestro's groovier sounds – as it's filled with nice slightly funky tracks, lots of groovy keyboards and organ, and some other excellent little tracks that have a nice bossa nova groove. ... CD
Toby Dammit
Bella Casa (UK), 1967. New Copy
An overlooked bit of genius from Federico Fellini – a film that stars Terence Stamp as a Shakespearean actor run amuck – set to wonderful sounds here by the great Nino Rota! Rota revives some of his most charming styles from early 60s Fellini classics like La Dolce Vita or 8 1/2 – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Goal – The World Cup 1966
El (UK), 1966. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Totally wonderful sounds from UK soundtrack giant John Hawksworth – penned for a film on the heated World Cup of 1966, but served up in John's usual blend of jazzy styles, mod elements, and beautifully tuneful grooves! The CD presents the music with lots of snippets of dialogue from the film ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$6.99 13.99
An overstuffed collection – one that's filled with famous Nino Rota soundtrack material – for films by Fellini, Visconti, and others! First up is the excellent score for 8 1/2 – beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best ... CD
Muscle Up
Dark Entries, Late 70s. New Copy
Moody work from the legendary Patrick Cowley – all music originally composed for use in 70s porno films shot on the San Francisco scene – most of it in the years before Cowley took off in more techno-styled dancefloor modes! These tracks are all heavy on electronics, but the grooves ... CD
