✨✧ Francois De RoubaixFrancois De Roubaix – Compositeur Et Aventurier (5LP set) ... LP
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5LP set ... $96.99 129.99
An insanely fantastic overview of the soundtrack work of the legendary Francois DeRoubaix – the French film composer who often experimented with electronics, and also worked in a wider range of groovy styles too! Most of the music of Francois was never circulated on our side of the Atlantic, but to our ears he's every bit the genius of talents like Michel Colombier or Jean-Claude Vannier – and like them, had a special late 60s French approach to scoring and sound – often using bits of psych, funk, or electronics alongside more familiar instrumentation – sometimes subtle, but always with results that are completely sublime! Most of DeRoubaix's music was not issued on full length LPs back in the day – and this package recreates an initial three volume set that Barclay issued after his death, to bring attention to his music – along with two more albums of rare material too! One record features a whole host of very cool vocal numbers – with lyrics by Brigitte Bardot, Annie Giaradot, Nicoletta, Alain Delon, and DeRoubaix himself – and the 5LP set features a massive 58 tracks in all, plus a big booklet of notes!

Francois De RoubaixDaughters Of Darkness (Les Levres Rouges) (180 gram pressing – with bonus poster) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 34.99 On January 21, 2022 (delayed)
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! There's a very intimate feel to the record – almost as if Francois is performing most of the sounds in the studio himself – balancing a guitar line with a keyboard fill, a bowed bass bit with drums, soaring strings with trumpet, and so on – occasionally hitting some funky touches that really keep things interesting – and which makes some of DeRoubaix best work on a par with the genius of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Titles include "The Countess Kiss", "Phantom Organ & Piano", "Pursuit On The Dunes Of Ostend", "Accident & Cymbalum", "Love On The Rails", "Red Lips", "Ballad In Bruges", and "The Dunes Of Ostend Flagellation". LP, Vinyl record album

Francois De RoubaixDernier Domicile Connu/Une Aller Simple (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Universal (France), Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 39.99
Two tremendous soundtracks from the mighty Francois De Roubaix – easily one of our favorite film composers of all time! Dernier Domicile Connu is wonderful – with a famous theme that mixes stepping strings and funky drums in this really magnificent way – before moving between spare instrumental moments and the return of the great theme – all with that incredible ear for space and sound that made Francois so different than so many of his contemporaries! Une Aller Simple has a few more conventional modes, but still hits all these cool moments too – and lots of that subtle funk that made De Roubaix ahead of his time – great use of electric bass under more standard instruments. Titles include "Jerk Carcerel", "Aspic", "Blues Pour Nicoletta", "La Vitesse La Mort", "Dernier Domicile Connu", "Gregg", "Les Maniaques", "Por Qui Porquoi", and "Jeanne Et Marceau".

Francois De RoubaixL'Essential Francois De Roubaix ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Some of the coolest soundtrack music you'll ever hope to hear – all played by a cat who could equally handle the sitar, guitar, Fender Rhodes, and electronics pictured on the cover! Francois De Roubaix is easily one of our favorite soundtrack composers ever – a French talent at the end of the 60s who never got the same international exposure as some of his countrymen, but who had an ear for odd instrumentation and funky undercurrents that rivals that of Serge Gainsbourg, Michel Colombier, or Jean-Claude Vannier – although we might even be tempted to say that Francois is even more way-out than any of them! This collection really lives up to its "essential" promise – and mixes together weird electronic numbers, bass-heavy funk tracks, jazzy groovers, and lots more – all with arrangements and production that are totally fresh, and which should turn you into the same sort of De Roubaix fanatic that we've been for years. Titles include "Le Samourai", "L'Homme Orchestre", "La Vie A Bord", "Les Caids", "Bataille Navale", "Clara 1939", "Journal De Bord", "Le Rapace", "La Scoumoune", "Dernier Domicile Connu", "Tom/Les Prisonniers", "Adieu L'Ami", and "Far From Dallas".

Francois De RoubaixLe Samourai/Les Adventuriers ... CD
Universal (France), 1967. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
2 of the greatest soundtracks ever from Francois De Roubaix – both recorded in that magical year of 1967! First up on the set is Les Adventuriers – a mindblowingly wonderful score for a Robert Enrico film, and one that offers a unique blend of jazzy rhythms, western themes, and more – all tied together by an extremely haunting theme! Some tunes have spaghetti western-esque acoustic guitar and whistling, while others have a more Frenchy isolated piano, played with a slightly watery feel – and some others take on a much more driving, almost Francis Lai-like approach. De Roubaix score for Jean Pierre Melville's classic Le Samourai follows in a much darker mode – as moody and solitary as the film's main character, but graced with some warmer touches on piano, flute, and even a bit of organ – none of which are especially jazzy, but which color in the music with extremely evocative tones. Titles include "Laetitia Par Alain Delon", "Journal De Bord", "Enterrement Sous-Marin", "Acrobaties Aeriennes", "Hotel Sandwich", "Martey's", "Valerie", "Le Samourai", and "Le Destin De Costello".

Francois De RoubaixLes Secrets De La Mer Rouge ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 1967/1975. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 41.99
Really beautiful soundtrack work from French genius Francois De Roubaix – music for the same program, but from two different periods – brought together to illustrate the constantly-evolving brilliance of the music of De Roubaix! The first half of the set features instrumentals from the original 1967 show, which focused on the underwater secrets of the Red Sea – and Francois uses mostly acoustic elements, but with a weirdly watery vibe – percussion, acoustic guitar, flute, and other instruments – all given this really cool, moody sort of approach – really evoking the feel of the depths, but in ways that are very unique! The music from 1975 has more of the electronic elements that De Roubaix was experimenting with at the time – but still uses a lot of acoustic percussion and woodwind bits – tying into the sound of the first recordings, but with a slightly different vibe. This LP is the first time the material has ever been on vinyl – and titles include "La Mer La Nuit", "Les Plus Belles Perles Du Monde", "Generique", "Enterrement De Said Ali", "Celima", "Hadji", "L'Enlevement", "Desert", and "Amina".

✨✧ Francois De RoubaixLe Samourai ... LP
Universal (France), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the darkest soundtracks ever from the wonderful Francois De Roubaix – a moody, brooding score that really fits the solitary spirit of the main character! There's still plenty of those cool De Roubaix elements in the mix – even some weird melodies on organ and electronics – mixed with other piano or flute lines, all in these slow-stepping modes that have a wonderfully haunting vibe. Titles include "Laetitia Par Alain Delon", "Journal De Bord", "Enterrement Sous-Marin", "Acrobaties Aeriennes", "Hotel Sandwich", "Martey's", "Valerie", "Le Samourai", and "Le Destin De Costello".

Philippe BesombesLibra – Un Film Du Groupe Pattern (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cleopatra, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
Tripped out electronics meet progressive rock jamming – all in a weird and wonderful film score from the early 70s! The record's one of the best by French experimentalist Philippe Besombes from the time – and it's got a style that sort of starts in the territory of Francois De Roubaix similar electronic work for film – but gets a lot darker and noisier right away! There's a textural depth here that's really great – almost a pre-industrial music exploration of sounds – but the work's also not that over-indulgent, either – and Besombes always has a great way of getting back to a tune, especially on the shorter tracks. Titles include "La Plage", "Rugby", "Ceremonie", "Hache 06", "La Ville", "Les Cosmonautes", "Tis A Song", "Boogimmick", and "PJF 261". LP, Vinyl record album

New takes on classic cuts from the glory days of French cinema – either remixed versions of the older tracks, or new constructions completely – brought together in a special celebration of the 20 years of soundtrack reissues in the Ecoutez Le Cinema series!

✨✧ Bruno ZambriniRacconti Di Mare (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Sonor (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful ocean-based soundtrack – the kind of really special music we'd put right up there with the best seafaring scores by Sven Libaek or Francois De Roubaix! The style here draws on some of the best soundtrack modes of the late 60s – as the music is often jazzy, with some nice bossa currents at times – but also has some groovier bits, occasional wordless vocals, and even cool keyboards and a bit of electronics! Every song is a gem – and the soundtrack spins out in a beautiful way that's powerful, uplifting, and irrepressibly groovy. Titles include "Estasi Sul Mare", "Beat Psichedelico", "Tensione Negli Abissi", "Foreste Di Corallo", "Garko Al Caraibi", "Recupero Impossibile", "Laguna Di Notte", and "Fuga Nella Notte".

✨✧ VariousEcoutez Le Cinema – 20 Ans ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful celebration of the long-running Ecoutez Le Cinema series – a book-styled package that brings together dozens of rare and classic soundtrack tunes, plus a big booklet of notes! The CDs feature titles from across the series – 2CDs' worth of music from dozens of films, handled by top-shelf composers who include Lalo Shifrin, Quincy Jones, Michel Magne, Antoine Duhamel, Georges Delerue, Alain Goraguer, Martial Solal, Michel Legrand, Eric Demarsan, Francois De Roubaix, Krzystof Komeda, Jimmy Smith, Jean Claude-Vannier, and many others – with the strong focus on French film score artists that we've always loved in the series. The book is 90 pages, in full color, with lots of images of films and composers –and essays that bring together two different talents – Martial Solal on Jean Luc Godard, Alain Goraguer on Serge Gainsbourg, Costa Gavras on Michel Magne, Lalo Schifrin on Rene Clement, and so on. All these essays are in French, but the other contents are very enjoyable from a language-less perspective! CD

✨✧ Andrzej Korzynski80 ... LP
GAD (Poland), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great celebration of the rich career of Polish soundtrack and sound library composer Andrzej Korzynski – a package issued on the 80th birthday of the artist, and which features well-collected tracks from four decades of recording, plus some unreleased material too! Korzynski's been championed in recent years for his unusual, offbeat sounds – and here, those qualities are mixed with groovier elements too – with a vibe that's almost like some of the best work from French soundtrack maestro Francois DeRoubaix – who had a similarly great ear for electronic bits, odd instrumental flourishes, and other compelling elements that really keep things interesting! The package features 30 tracks in all, with a really lively combination of styles and elements – supported by full notes in English and Polish. LP, Vinyl record album
