I got the idea for this thread when I read about the "missing' disco version of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS.

SO here is the premise:
What film score releases , released on 45rpm vinyl, would be included in the FSM film score jukebox?

My picks:
THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY - Hugo Montenegro
THEME FROM E.T.; FLYING

I love this topic! I actually have a Seeburg Q-100 jukebox that I've thought about trying to stock with just film music, but my tastes are too eclectic and I can't help but put some non-score favorites on there. It only holds 50 records.

Right now, the film score 7" records it holds are:

GLITTERHOUSE - "Barbarella" / "Love Drags Me Down" - Dynovoice DY-927 - white label promo - from "Barbarella"

BOB CREWE GENERATION - "The Black Queen's Beads" / "An Angel Is Love" - Dynovoice DY-928 - white label promo - from "Barbarella"

NINO ROTA - "Raquel" / "Ballando Con Raquel" - Parade PRC-5014 - Italian release - from "Spara Forte, PiĆ¹ Forte ... Non Capisco"

WILLIAM LOOSE - "Theme Of The Vixen" / "O'Banion's Song" - Beverly Hills 45-9347 - from "Vixen"

LUIS BACALOV - "Carrefour" / "Seq. 7 - Sistemo L'America e Torno" - Four Flies FLIES-45-03 - from "Colpita Da Improvviso Benessere" and "Sistemo L'America e Torno"

ROBERT PREGADIO / ANTON ABRIL - "Kriminal" / "Il Cobra" - Four Flies FLIES-45-02 - from "Kriminal" and "Il Cobra"

The last 2 are very recent releases on the excellent "Four Flies" label.

I do have a few more 7" film score records, but it would be an interesting challenge to try to fill all 50 slots in the jukebox with just soundtrack music.

CARRIE (Pino Donaggio) got a 45 rpm release in Japan if I'm not mistaken. Four decades and I still can't get over how much I love the music from that movie.

Gimmie early '60s Vadim French films!

No Piero 'king' Piccioni, purplemonkey? Shame on you. smile

No matter. There's plenty of French film music EPs from the 1960s - enough that this sub-category alone might very well fill up 50 slots.
Just look at what's in CDandLP.com by guys such as Garvarentz, Bolling, Prodromides, Delerue, Legrand, etc. ... and don't forget those Italians, either.

Here's one back cover:

I don't think this one was ever released, but I imagine that the "Tora Theme" on FSM's TORA! TORA! TORA! was done with the idea of a single in mind. As the liner notes state, "This must qualify as one of the most unusual and brazen attempts to shoehorn a piece of dramatic underscore into a pop idiom ever undertaken". Yes, it's great.

Hope that someone on planet Earth owns a copy of Piccioni's 1960 hunchback Il Gobbo:



According to Stefan Schlegel, master tapes do not exist on Il Gobbo so this is one Piccioni for which the EP album is the only source.
Never saw a copy of Il Gobbo myself, but I found this image of it @ discogs.

Close Encounters Theme by John Williams

I had this one as a teenager! The flip side, "Nocturnal Pursuit" probably got more spins from me than the A-side; I used it as background music for at least one Super-8 extravaganza I made in the 1970s!

Some great selections from Valiant65 as well.

No Piero 'king' Piccioni, purplemonkey? Shame on you. smile

Would that I could! Here in the States these are particularly hard to track down. Though, bringing "Il Gobbo" to my attention has now given me a new mission in life. smile

Drooling over the other titles in your picture of course. I bought a RCA Victor 7" single of Marcello Giombini's "Sexy Trumpet" / "Sexy Twist" a few months back, but unfortunately it arrived broken.

I also recently got 2 different Japanese 7" releases of Colletto Tempio "L'Eclisse" -- Victor SS-1304 and RCA SS-3328 -- though I don't know that these were recordings that were actually used in the film. SS-1304 sounds of 1960s vintage, but SS-3328 is dated 1977 and has a wonderfully sleazy guitar break in the middle.

This thread inspired me to take a look online and it looks like there was a 7" release of Barry Gray's "Theme From Space: 1999" with the apparently unrelated-to-the-show "Black Sun" on the flip (though it appeared on the 1976 soundtrack LP). The LP attributed it to Gray, but the discogs website says "Black Sun" was composed by Irving Martin & Brian Dee, along with "Death's Other Dominion" (a.k.a. "Funko") . I'll need to track this one down.

If you're actually filling a jukebox, one of the challenges is finding 45's that have solid tunes on both sides.

When I was England and France in 69 or 70 as a young teenager I bought a few albums not available in the US, plus a few singles:

The Raging Moon (Stanley Myers); still one of my favorite scores
Boom (Universal)
Zulu (Ember)
John Barry Plays 007 (Ember)
Once Upon a Time in the West (it's hard to believe that once upon a time this great score was not released in America when the film was released)

45s:

Macadam Cowboy/Fun City by John Barry (French edition)
OHMSS/We Have All the Time in the World
Lonely Bottles/Hangin Paper -- Quincy Jones from In Cold Blood

although I did not buy it (because I never saw it) I love that Lion in Winter Part 2 version of "The Herb Garden" Getting that track on CD is a Holy Grail for many Barry fans

also very good (for a cover): On the flip side of "Call Me Bwana" (composed, theoretically, by Monty Norman) but performed by organist Sir Julian is a great cover of "Seance on a Wet Afternoon" that is very rhythmic and guitar driven. It's amazing how almost any early JB theme sounds great on an electric guitar.

And Barry's instrumental (from the US album) Goldfinger/flip side "Troubador"
