Oscillotron — Cataclysm ... CD 8.99

Creepy, cataclysmic sounds from Oscillotron – a set that's very much in keeping with their previous attempts to revive an older style of horror film scoring – but at a level that's maybe even better than before! The music here is sublime – maybe in the best territory of soundtrack work by Tangerine Dream or Popol Vuh, with all the spooky tones that might imply – as keyboards move in stark blocks of sound over dark rhythms that are often plodding, but with this forward intensity that makes the music feel as if the whole thing's drawing to some ultra-horrific conclusion! Titles include "Mirage", "Pioneers", "Twilight", "Spiral", "Terminal", and "Cataclysm".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Eclipse
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. Sealed
Weird and spooky sounds from Oscillotron – a one-man outfit, but working here in sharply cinematic splendor! The music here takes plenty of cues from the late 70s/early 80s horror generation – with some wonderfully dark keyboard lines that resonate strongly throughout the entire set ...

Cineploit (Austria), 2015. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Totally great work from Sospetto – the group's third album, and their best so far! The approach here follows in Sospetto's previous mode of remaking older soundtrack styles – but the album's even more elaborate and involved, given that the group create four different mini film scores ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. Near Mint-
A sublime second set of work from Orgasmo Sonore – even hipper than their first, and again a wonderful reworking of soundtrack modes from the Italian scene of the 70s! Compositions here are by Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Piero Piccioni, and others – but the group makes the music ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ulysses
RCA, 1967. Near Mint-
A very nice soundtrack for this obscure film loosely based on the novel by Joyce – clearly a tough task, given the scope of the original book! Myers' score is suitably crazy – with a strange array of orchestral pieces, moving in and out in a "suite" format, and sounding a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
You Only Live Twice
United Artists, 1967. Very Good
A great little James Bond soundtrack – written for one of the lesser-remembered Bond films, but filled with nice moments! There's a darker, moodier feel here than on some of Barry's other Bond scores – lots of stretched out tracks that have a bit more space than usual, and odd ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+
Despite the fact that Sophia Loren's name is prominently displayed on the cover, and despite the fact that she's pictured on the front, most of the record is instrumental work by Barry – although there is a vocal track or two by Loren! The sound is pretty groovy, and the tracks have a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
The mostly orchestral music used for the Kubrick film, with alternating spooky and grand passages Strauss, Ligetti and others. Inlcudes "Also Sprach Zarathustra", "Requiem For Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, Mixed Choirs & Orchestra", "Luz Aeterna", "The Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1966. Good+
A great little album – filled with groovy numbers that recall all the charm of the Batman TV show! Hefti composed the original theme of "Batman", and although Nelson Riddle did the real soundtrack, Hefti does an excellent job here of capturing the spirit, possibly more so than on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Zita
Philips, Late 60s. Sealed
A beautiful soundtrack to this obscure erotic love film from the late 60's! Fracois De Roubaix did the score, and we're in love with the music on this one. It's sort of spare, sexy, atmospheric batch of tracks – with a bit of an instrumental Serge Gainsbourg feel to it. Electric bass ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good+
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems ... LP, Vinyl record album
Project 3, 1974. Sealed
The US release of 3 soundtracks to films produced by Dino De Laurentis – the best of which is Roy Budd's Stone Killer. The soundtrack is one of the darkest Budd scores ever, designed to accompany a brutal police film starring Charles Bronson. The main theme has a nice electronic sound that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Odd Couple
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good-
The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most ...
