Theme De Yoyo, the funk jazz classic. The DVD is Moshe Mizrahi’s 1970 swinging, fist-waving New Wave flic; and an hour-long interview with Joseph Jarman. The last thousand records, nicely sleeved.
Artemiev’s 1989-90 Moscow re-recordings of his soundtracks to the classic Tarkovsky films.
Their playful, mysterious, charming, but long-forgotten soundtrack to an early-60s Italian cult movie. The great Helen Merrill is outstanding.

Hysterical horror-film themes, with India’s finest composers — Bappi Lahiri, R.D Burman, Sonik Omi, Sapan Jogmohan, Laxmikant Pyarelal — revelling in the remit.

Two Jean Rollin, French Horrotica soundtracks: Philippe D’Aram’s vintage synth experimentalism and free-rock, for Fascination; dynamic drums-and-keys-based chamber music by Pierre Raph, for Requiem.
His piercingly atmospheric soundtrack to this film featuring the one and only Jeanne Moreau. A neglected Miles, with some of his most affective playing. Highly recommended.
His piercingly atmospheric soundtrack to this film released as Frantic in the US, better known here as Lift To The Scaffold. A neglected Miles, with some of his very best playing. Highly recommended.
Albums of the original score — as played by Italian prog-rockers Goblin — have always been in print. Here at last are the dark and twisted incidental cues — like all the music from the shopping mall scenes.
