Although the initial release of this music was a cheap attempt to cash in on the tragic fame of the late James Dean, this 1956 session was also one of the nicest big band dates to come out of the Pacific Jazz catalog of the 1950s! Chet Baker and Bud Shank are the featured soloists of the set ... (Jazz, Soundtracks)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great grooves from this legendary sound library combo from the Italian scene of the 70s – but a set that also features some of their more unusual, offbeat styles too!

No music – and as far as we can tell, the whole album's lifted from bits that appeared in the hit TV show. Not that that's a problem, though, as Carroll O'Connor, Jean Stapleton, Rob Reiner, and crew never fail to please. Bits include "Breasts", "Archie & Maude", ...

Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s!

The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
