Surely some other Japanese 1970's tv/movie/anime OST's must have been pretty funky too. .. wish I knew more. Quite a few Japanese 70's/late 60's films in my collection have decent scores (Female Convict Scorpion, Sonny Chiba - Streetfighter series, Stray Cat Rock, Sex Hunter, all those Nikkatsu "yoof" thrillers with a token club scene in. . and Koji Wakamatsu's "Ecstasy of the Angels", which has a wicked jazz soundtrack). The only other Japanese OST's I have are Enter the Dragon (2LP), a few Godzilla LP's, a 2nd issue of Profondo Rosso, a 1980 Bullitt reissue, 1980s Citta Violenta and Theoreme reissue and 2 original copies of Fist of Fury. I do have an LP with soundtracks from "Gincho Watadori" (?) and "Female Convict Scorpion" on 'em, but most of the consist of dialogue, though there's the odd fuzz guitar cue. Ahh, I lie. I also have an original Japanese copy of the "Starfleet" ("Bomber X&quot LP, which is cheesy, hard riffin' 80's rock. Cheese, but cheese that works.
    thanks for the link. I lifted the Shogun Assassin graphic from a site called Rottencotton.com...they've got a nice selection of cult/horror tees I wanna get my grubby hands on. I'm not sure about the quality of their service but i'll probably give 'em a try after I move next month---I want The Thing t-shirt and a few other bits.

    as for the Japanese OST's, I've got a few anime ones floating about, mainy stuff from 70's cartoons I used to watch as a kid (Grandizer, Cyborg 009, original Gundam lp, etc.). i've also got a few random tv show 45's like the Sonny Chiba 7" for Gorilla 7, Bruce Lee's Green Hornet and that stupid shogun/military time travel film he did. a lot of the 70's crime dramas were really good----I've got the Seibu Keisatsu lp which was a 70's cop drama, although the score wasn't what I remembered from the opening sequence of the show so I felt a bit let down.

    I did notice the funk coming from those films you mentioned like Street Fighter, i've been dying to find a soundtrack for this movie but I'm assuming none were ever made. ever notice the Hanzo The Razor score? good stuff. I think on my next trip back to Japan I'll have to dig through the record bins by my mom's house and see if I can find some gems.

    E-man whats the story on this. Is this really of the same rarity as deep throat?

    I've been curious about since I read that piece on youre website. I'm hoping to turn one of these up in a collection someday seeing as this is LA.

    Also would you be willing to burn me a CD of this? I'm not too much of a disco man, but I love modern soul

    I cold hook you up with something and I still got a record that you wanted from waaaaaay back when

    i passed on a copy of this a while back. it's an awful, mono pressing. only 1 side is lalo's coogan score and it's OK but nothing special. there is one longish drum break if you're into that.

    yeah, easily the same rarity as Deep Throat. talking to other collectors it seems the only 2 copies we know about (mine and the bloke who sorted me out) came from LA. having said that, it's a funky disco record, and both were sealed. i reckon there will be more somewhere out there!

    you've got a great chance of finding OSTs there since, obviously, that's where all the promos get distributed.

    i used to think it was OK rather than good, but it's definitely a grower (every time i get it out i find something else on it). no problem about a CDR. the band are really good.

    PM me and we'll sort something out!

    To be fair, I think this is in jest. I take it as such anyway.

    If not, he could suck my dead dick in return for his life. (Can you guess what I watched last night?!&#33

    Re: Schifrin, I've seen 'Coogan's Bluff' and it is a wicked soundtrack. Could never understand why I'd not seen it around, now the muddied waters are clearing. Shame though, all that will happen now is someone will dub a shoddy version off the telly or something (like Showbiz did with The Taking of Pelham 123). Bah!

    nick c asked about pound. it's mental. really heavy small group funky jazz. very, very rude, very infantile, and therefore very funny. solid all through too.

    a totally different kind of record to, say, Superfly, but a damn good one if you're into gritty funk rather than a smoother soulful sound.

    i've been told by several indepedent sources that only 100 promos were pressed - it's got a hand-stamped white cover and label which adds a little credence to the story.

    If The Mack's post was in jest a wouldn't have gone amiss.

    There are sites where abuse towards complete strangers appears par for the course, then there are others where they compliment and understand each others musical tastes in a gentlemanly and considerate manner whilst offering tea, scones and snuff to all that are logged on.

    I'd like to think this board is in the latter category.

    Ah, it's almost not worth posting about: a big yawn upsetter floated across from SS is all it amounts to... Still, we all have our moments of aggressive message board madness - I'm certainly no stranger to that!

    It may not be worth a huge amount, but the hexangonal, purple vinyl issue of The Andromeda Strain is certainly a curio worth getting - just for the overall insanity factor. Lots of bleeps too.

    Taking of Pelham 1,2,3 OST was originally released on a film club CD maybe about 7 or 8 years ago, limited to about 500 copies I seem to remember. It was inevitable someone was going to boot it. Which no doubt led to the official vinyl release on Simply Vinyl...

    With apologies to italiansoundtracks.com - a great site worth checking....

    Another hot competitor for the title "rarest (US) soundtrack-LP" is without doubt David SHIREs masterpiece OLD BOYFRIENDS, a heart-project of actress Talia Shire, who was then married with composer David, the movie unfortunately being a box office-failure and most notably remembered today for the rather good scenes with John Belushi of "Blues Brothers"-fame (a pity that he had to die soooo young!! Read the bio!!&#33. Rumour has it that this LP was manufactured and given away to people attending the premier viewing of the movie, but this is only a rumour and simply wrong. The real story behind this LP is that Columbia-pictures had planned an accompaning LP-release, but went behind schedule with the vinyl pressing. At the time the movie started, David SHIRE was still considering, which tracks and so on, and a test pressing was actually manufactured (these facts are printed in the booklet accompaning David SHIRES "Music at the movie" promoCD-release), simply being put in a non-descriptive plain white cover with the movies title hand-written on the LP-label. However, Columbias movie prints did already feature the availability of the scores as part of the end titles, which lead to a "stampede" among soundtrack-vinyl collectors to acquire this fantastic score, but this "stampede" ended in the nowhere. The LP was never officially released. How many copies David Shire and/or Columbia had manufactured is a mistery, but they are ULTRA scarce ... Maybe 10, maybe 20, maybe 50, who knows? One of these items was accompanied by a typewritten sheet of paper (a photocopy) containing the track-list + running times and a photo of Mrs. Shire, another copy is shown in Keith Mcnally¬īs price guide, the cover featuring a black-and-white photocopy of the movie-poster, which was affixed to the plain white sleeve by the collector having had a dream day the day he found this item! So, as long as further research does not proove the existence of other copies around, one has to assume, that these copies were pressed on Mr. Shires behalf, who had a sheet of paper typewritten, photocopied and added into the plain white sleeve together with a photo of his wife, actress Thalia Shire. In my humble opinion, this is the most collectible and rarest US-soundtrack LP! And what does it contain and why has it never been released by any specialty label: Both questions might have points in common! Let us start with the contents: In addition to approximately 10 very beautiful and lush, but never boring instrumental tracks the promo-"release" does in fact contain THREE vocals by the unbelievably talented Mr. Belushi, who had a voice that simply makes the walls shake. These three tracks have NEVER been issued anywhere and are part of his "lost heir". That they have never been issued in any other form does hint at "copyright problems", because why, if not for any such obscure reason, does not one of the "complete" Blues Brothers editions contain these wonderful "bonus tracks"? Maybe there were more than one reason why this LP never saw a commercial release. Maybe not only because the movie was a box office-failure, but maybe also because Columbia did not have permission to issue this record with the Belushi-tracks on it and deemed an instrumental-only recording not saleable ... An album with three otherwise unavailable Belushi-trecks would have certainly had a better market potential by attracting more buyers ... (the three Blues Brothers LPs were issued by the Atlantic-label, by the way ...). Well, nobody knows the reasons, why this score has never had a commercial release, but we certainly know that it ranks among the top five rarest soundtrack-vinyls worldwide (including all Italian releases) on every serious list ...

    It first came out on CD, limited licence job by a soundtrack fan club and a film magazine. Then part of it came out on (ahem) vinyl on a comp, edited together with the track that Showbiz sampled to act as the intro to what was the ending credits, which is much heavier than the official title track. After that the title track came out on something else, followed by several white labels of the whole score... I stopped paying attention after that.

    I know Black Sabbath fans who own Superfly.

    I'm probably a Curtis fan who owns Black Sabbath - though Van Halen 1 is my current RAWK touchstone. Atomic Punk is just an amazing track.

    Well, I'm convinced by this eloquent but subtly nuanced argument in favour of Curtis Mayfield over Hanged Man, which emphasises the musical and cultural qualities of the one over the other, while respecting the right of others to differ...

    Oops, sorry. Wrong quote.

    Incidentally, I like both, and 'Superfly' better, if pushed, but this kind of talk makes me want very much to go and put on some Ray Davies (his superb 'Klute' theme you've not heard, then, I take it?). Or at the very least the Rediffusion Allstars version of Freddie's Dead.

    Christ, how did this manage to generate into a tedious Superfly Vs whatever debate? There was some interesting posts going on here earlier, can we go back to that? Did anyone hear anything about Moroder's score for Scarface getting released on anything? Tony's Theme on teh official OST just isn't enough!
