Katsuhisa HattoriLady With Seven Faces (with bonus track) ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $36.99
A Japanese soundtrack from the late 60s – but one that's scored in some of the best bossa and jazzy modes that you'd find in Italian work of the time – plus maybe some of the more whimsical styles that American composers like Johnny Williams or Neal Hefti were using on their comedies during the same stretch! We don't know the film at all, but the non-stop flow of groovy tunes makes us feel as if we've already experienced the narrative – especially as some titles have very cool wordless vocals, ala some of the groovy Hugo Montenegro late 60s albums on RCA. CD features 27 titles in all – and tracks include "Nude Studio", "Fashion Show", "The Origin Of The Party", "The Next Move", "The Dance Is Fun", "Plan Success", and "The Fragrance Of The Roll Of Bills".

Harumi IbeTantei Jimusho 23 Kutabare Akutodomo ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $29.99
Think the French new wave had a lock on jazz soundtracks? Think again, because the Japanese scene of the 60s was full of them – including this sublime set from 1963! Most numbers here are jazz tracks played by a great small combo – one that's got tremendous energy all the way through! The players are unfortunately not credited – but there's great baritone sax, vibes, Hammond, and other instrumentation on these numbers – most of which feel more like evocative performances by a group in a small club, than they do any sort of standard soundtrack music! The whole thing's beautiful – rich in feeling and color, almost like some of the Mal Waldron or Charles Mingus soundtrack performances – and the CD features 20 tracks in all, with notes and other information in Japanese.

Mamiya YoshioPrince Of The Sun – Horus' Great Adventure ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $48.99
A 2CD set of music designed to accompany Japanese animation that starred "the little Norse Prince Valiant" – the cut lil' guy pictured on the cover, who gets some very action-packed accompaniment here! Most tunes are short and lively, and almost echo an older cartoon mode that you might have heard in the US in the 30s and 40s – not exactly Merrie Melodies or Raymond Scott, but not that far away either – as there's all sorts of playful arrangements, unusual horns, offbeat rhythms, and other things that really make the orchestrations sparkle! As with other titles in this series, the whole thing is very well done, but with all notes and titles in Japanese – a 2CD set with 54 tracks in all. CD

Ghostface KillahLost Tapes ... LP
Daupe (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $23.99 34.98
Ghostface in his comfort zone of dusty cinematic soul beats, strings samples and distinctively dexterous wordplay on The Lost Tapes! Contrary to the title, this an all new effort as opposed to a dive into the vaults – with the production credited to Big Ghost LTD and guest appearances by Snoop, Planet Asia, Raekwon, Masta Killa, Cappadonna, Reignwolf, E-40, Big Daddy Kane and more. There's a weighty gravity to Ghost's rhymes on this one, not really reaching for the breathless, fast heart rate narratives of the Supreme Clientele era, because he has nothing left to prove. Ghost still owns it! Includes "Buckingham Palace", "Majestic Accolades", "Cold Crush", "Saigon Velour", "Reflections Of CREAM (Interlude Two)","Put The Ghostface On Em", "Done It Again", "Watch 'Em Holla", "I Think I Saw A Ghost" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 2700 copies.)
