La Morte Viene Da Manila
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A sweet little score for this 60s film set in the Philippines at the end of WWII – penned by Francesco DeMasi with a nice blend of dramatic elements and exotic touches! The initial sound is a bit like some of Francesco's western scores – but as the soundtrack progresses, lots of cool ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy 2CD
A hugely expanded version of this excellent film score from Gianni Ferrio – one that adds in a full bonus disc of material that wasn't on the original album! Ferrio's perfectly balanced here between all of his best modes – a bit of grooviness, a bit of tension, and these shifting, ... CD

Mission Impossible – The Television Scores (6CD set)
La La Land, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD
An amazing package of music – not just the original two albums of Lalo Schifrin music that were issued from the Mission Impossible TV show – but a massive 6CD collection that brings together work from all seven seasons of the program – a huge amount of material that's never been ... CD

Stracult
Beat (Italy), 2015. New Copy
A very cool contemporary group – and one who do a perfect job of recreating the Italian film score magic of the 60s! Unlike some of the other recent wave of retro soundtrack lovers, these guys don't go for the darker side of older film work – but the more mod, groovy sounds that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La La Land, 1956. New Copy
The brilliant score for one of the greatest sci fi films ever – music that's filled with just the right sort of drama to make the narrative work! If you've ever seen the movie, you know that most of the action is very subtle – things hinted at, often offscreen or out of the scene ... 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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Planet Of The Apes TV Series
La La Land, 1974. New Copy 2 CDs
Pretty great work for the short-lived Planet Of The Apes TV show in the 70s – a brief spinoff of the films, done with a surprisingly similar style – and with some excellent soundtrack music that's really a cut above the usual for the time! The bulk of the music here is by Lalo Schifrin ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bandolero
Project 3/La La Land, 1968. New Copy
A way cooler soundtrack than you might expect – not only different than the usual western score of the time, but surprisingly sophisticated work for a movie that featured stars like Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Raquel Welch, and George Kennedy! The music was conducted by Lionel Newman, and it' ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
FBI Operazione Pakistan
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy
A really great entry in this series of Italian FBI films – recorded in the early 70s, and with some great exotic touches that really fit the Pakistan location! At the core, the music has all the great spy jazz elements we love in the other Operazione FBI soundtracks – but there's also ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La Legge Dei Gangsters
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy 2CD
Way more than you'd expect from any sort of typical gangster movie – a set of godlike sounds that could only have come from the hands of the greta Piero Umiliani! The music is filled with jazzy touches and these stunning deeper currents – served up in a mix of vibes, flute, Hammond, ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Digitmovies (Italy), 1970. New Copy
Loads of cool sounds here – from mellow bossa, to moody jazz, to a few more dramatic numbers – all wrapped up together in a package that's definitely the epitome of what we love in Italian soundtracks from the time! Each tune has a slightly different flavor, but the music is linked ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Baby
Beat (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy
An early 80s score for Italian horror maven Lucio Fulci by composer Fabio Frizzi – pretty chilling, but also in a bit of a post disco groove – appropriate for the time period and especially so given the NYC setting! The flick sounds like it owes more than a little bit to Rosemary's ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembe ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Beat (Italy), 1981. New Copy
Classic slasher scoring from Fabio Frizzi – one of the few Italian cats who really helped set the sound of horror at the start of the 80s! There's a mix here of older Italian modes and some of the leaner, more electric elements that crept in during the previous few years – which means ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Contraband
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A moody crime score from Fabio Frizzi – done for a project with director Lucio Fulci, the composer's frequent partner in horror movies! The style here is a bit different than some of the famous creepy soundtracks from the Frizzi/Fulci team – but all the best elements are still firmly ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Intrigo A Los Angeles
Beat (Italy), 1964. New Copy
Jazzy goodness from the wonderful Piero Umiliani – a set that's got some sweet instrumental touches from Chet Baker on trumpet, plus piano from Umiliani himself! The overall feel is very much in an early 60s crime jazz style – that best Italian groove before more mod and bossa-styled ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Batman – Original Television Soundtrack
20th Century/Universal, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Holy Soundtracks! Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Poppy Disc (UK), 1956. New Copy (reissue)
Classic early electronic work from Louis & Bebe Barron – and the score to one of the best 50s space thrillers! This LP does a nice job of bringing the material out again – and although the sound quality isn't totally perfect, the spookiness of the music more than makes up for that. ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cotton Comes To Harlem
United Artists, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A funky classic from Galt MacDermot! The record is Galt's score for the blacksploitation film that starred Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St Jacques – and it's a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes that takes off from the sound of his late 60s work. Melba Moore sings on a few cuts – ... LP, Vinyl record album
