Lolita ... CD MGM/Hallmark (UK), 1962. Used ...
A very groovy little soundtrack for this original film version of Lolita – directed by Stanley Kubrick with a screeplay by Nabokov himself. The album sports the famous "Lolita Theme", with a weird vocal part that goes "nya nya", and which became something of a minor ... read moreCD
Features soul classics by Marvin Gaye, The Temptaions, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and Aretha Franklin, and The Exciters, plus a few rock hits by The Rascals, Three Dog Night, and Procol Harum. LP, Vinyl record album
A great little soundtrack that really matches the spirit of the film – Quentin Tarantino's own blacksploitation soundtrack – served up here as a mix of classics from the 70s, plus a few special tracks recorded just for the movie! The cover's got a great badass look, and the record ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record for a movie that seemed like a bit of a joke at the time of release – but one that's gone on to have surprising staying power with new generations over the decades – as has the mix of music that makes up the soundtrack! The set's from the big 90s anthology soundtrack moment ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the rarest albums from Rare Earth – and one of the funkiest, too – an obscure soundtrack release from the end of the 60s, and a set that maybe has the group taking off in wilder directions than some of their other records of the time! Some tracks are nice and long, and the group ... (Rock, Soundtracks)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Features Dave Douglas on trumpet, Jamie Saft on wurlitzer, Marcus Strickland on saxophones, Brad Jones on bass, Gene Lake on drums, and DJ Olive on turntables. Includes the original session tracks "Just Another Murder", "Fatty's Day Off", "Famous Players", and "Ba ... (Jazz, Soundtracks)read moreCD
An amazing chapter in the pre-Hair career of Galt MacDermot – a set of rare organ recordings made in the mid 60s, all of which feature Bernard Purdie on drums! The groove here is really unique – never straight ahead, and always in that choppy, African-inspired MacDermot approach to ... (Jazz, Soundtracks)read moreCD
Uncredited cover versions of music from the Morricone soundtrack. (Now Sound, Soundtracks)LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a mark that clicks at the end of "The Love Of Gold" and plays with some surface noise. Cover has a split spine, some ring and edge wear, and a small stain and discoloration from age on back.)
Quite possibly our favorite Ennio Morricone soundtrack ever – THE record that first made our ears prick up many years ago, and acknowledge him as the genius he truly is! The very first note of the record grabs you immediately – a heartbeat-like rhythm, pounding out very slowly before ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original French pressing! Cover has a "souvenir de Paris Match" sticker in a bottom corner – which also has some small bits of paper – but rest of the cover is nice.)

Charlotte's Web ... LP Paramount, 1973. Sealed Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Apple ... LP Cannon, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
... LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a trace of a price sticker and some aging.)
A great little record – despite the fact that the album was one of the factors that buried the Curtom record label! After the success of Superfly, the company thought another Curtis Mayfield soundtrack would be a sure million-seller – and really went to town on the record. Well, the ...

(Original pressing, includes insert. Cover has some wear.)
One of the most unique soundtracks of the blacksploitation generation – but maybe that's also because the film Lord Shango was also somewhat different than most – a hipper, more creative movie that took on a number of themes, which are all echoed by Howard Roberts in his music! This ... (Soul, Soundtracks)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the darkest Roy Budd scores ever – designed to accompany a brutal police film starring Charles Bronson! The main theme has a nice electronic sound that's kind of like the "Mystery Movie" theme from the 70s – then the score moves into some nicely moody regions that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic meeting of the minds – as director Jim Jarmusch makes a film that's a nod to the old martial arts films of the 70s that inspired the Wu-Tang Clan in their music – and RZA gets a chance to contribute to the soundtrack, with help from the Clan as well! The music is maybe the ... (Hip Hop, Soundtracks)read moreCD
Quite different than the original US release of this classic soundtrack – as this UK lineup features a lot more songs – a side one's worth of gems from the film, and side two featuring additional new tracks from Lennon & McCartney! Movie tunes include "If I Fell", "Ha ... (Rock, Soundtracks)read moreCD

Garota De Ipanema ... LP Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1967. New Copy (reissue)...
A stunning lost bossa nova soundtrack! The score was penned for the 1967 film Garota De Ipanema (Girl From Ipanema), and although you've heard some of the tracks before in other versions, the overall album is very nice – and is a wonderful tribute to the early days of bossa nova! Jobim and ... (Brazil, Soundtracks)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A mostly dramatic score to this mid 50s film that starred Alan Ladd & Sophia Loren – written by Friedhofer, and peformed here by Lionel Newman and the 20th Century Fox Orchestra. There's some nice exotic themes running through the mix – but most of the material is handled in the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging, splitting in the seams and spine, and some clear tape and a small stain at the top seam.)
One of the richest 60s moments from composer Hugo Montenegro – a soundtrack that's penned with a mix of string styles that are a nice bridge between the differing instrumental styles that Hugo would use in the 50s and the 60s! Some of the numbers showcase Montenegro's strong ability to score ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging, with a center split in the bottom seam.)
An excellent soundtrack to this early 70s thriller that starred George C Scott! Jerry Goldsmith has come up with some strong action themes that are very much in a Lalo Schifrin mode – mixing guitar, electric harpsichord, and strings with a harder-edged groove so that there's a lot of space ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
