There’s nothing quite like a mood-setting score to bring a movie to life. Whether it’s a classic by Ennio Morricone, a grandiose score from John Williams, or a harrowing trip from Goblin, soundtracks are important. They have almost created their own subset of the record collecting community that desperately seeks out rare and unusual soundtracks, which we have plenty of in stock and ready to be added to your collection.
We’ve hand-picked three highlights below, and the rest of our catalogue can be seen at eil.com.
