Funky Soundtracks

In our quest to 'diversify' and get more 'with it', a number of soundtrack gems from the 991 vaults will be added over the next couple of weeks. Lush orchestrations, bad-ass grooves, modernism, a chance to experiment, soundtracks of yore have proven in recent years to be not only a collectors' paradise but perfect material for DJs and producers alike. These will be exclusively original pressings, predominantly from the late 50s through to the mid seventies. As ever you can expect the weird and wonderful plus a hefty (Neal Hefti to be precise) amount of quality scores from the likes of Lalo Schifrin, Bernard Herrmann, Michel Legrand, Henry Mancini, Ennio Morricone and beyond.

One intriguing item that's proving to be 'ungoogleable' is an acetate containing music cues to a 1967 film that never was, which appears to be a lost recording from a certain Capitol producer & beat-junkies favourite of the sixties. Watch this space. Or 'stay tuned', as they say in the movies (don't they?)…

Until then, check some of our newly added collectable Quincy Jones orchestrations already, and dig those sleeves!
