Lalo Schifrin – Blues A-Go-Go (1965)

Pianist, composer, arranger and conductor – Lalo Schifrin does it all.
In the 60’s and 70’s he was in high demand for writing scores and themes and he’s the man behind the soundtracks for movies such as Steve McQueen’s Bullitt and the all-star cast Kelly’s Heroes.

This track was on the flip-side of an 7″ and on the album Music From The Motion Picture “Once A Thief” And Other Themes.

I’m not sure which movie – if any – this track originates from but, man, listen to those drums :)

Artie Butler – The White Fox (1971)

From the soundtrack to the movie “The Love Machine” from 1971, comes this Artie Butler track.
The release is credited to Dionne Warwicke but no doubt this super slow bossa track is Artie’s.

Giuseppe De Luca – Il Battello (1970)

Cozy bossa piece from Italian soundtrack and easy listening jazz composer Giuseppe De Luca.
This is from the soundtrack to the 1970 movie “Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray”.

Francesco De Masi – Altalena Party (1967)

Nice Italian bossa sound on this piece from the sought-after vinyl release “L’Italia Vista Dal Cielo” from around 1967.

Originally composed and used as a soundtrack for one or more of 14 RAI documentaries about Italy.
Some sources say it was released in 1969 but it is pretty difficult to find the exact year of release and in which of the documentaries the music was used.

It was re-released on CD on label Cometa in 2012.

Jean-Pierre Mirouze – Sexopolis (1971)

Track is the flip side of a 7″ soundtrack from a French movie called Le Mariage Collectif – apparently full of Danish actors. Weird.

Anyway – the music is slow and funky. And was reissued in 2010.
