Goblin/Giorgio Gaslini —
Profondo Rosso ... LP Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)...
Around August 5, 2014 (delayed)
One of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows". LP, Vinyl record album
Wonderful sounds from the great John Carpenter – one of those records that reminds us that his music is often just as important as the images he puts on the screen! Carpenter's music for The Fog follows nicely in his work for other films – particularly Halloween – in that it's got this slow-building style that often makes great use of keyboards – often used sparely, with a really spooky sort of energy – and even more space, and at slower speed than his other horror soundtracks! The style really fits the "fog" theme of the film! The soundtrack kicks off with the indispensable prologue from the movie – with the old man telling the ghost story with just the sparest of background keyboards – and other titles include "Theme From The Fog", "Rocks At Drakes' Bay", "Tommy Tells Of Ghost Ships", "Flack In The Sanctuary", "Dane", "An Evil Plan", "Morgue", "The Fog Approaches", "Revenge", "The Fog Enters Town" and more. This killer Death Waltz double vinyl version has a full bonus LP of previous unreleased cues! LP, Vinyl record album
(Top-notch Death Waltz version on double 180 gram gold colored vinyl – with a full LP of previously unreleased score cues!)
A hard-to-find late 70s Morricone soundtrack! Ennio's music for Professione Figlio kicks off surprisingly spry and catchy opening number before settling into a sparer, moody vibe overall. Its got flute lines spiraling into space over some darker orchestrations of strings and piano. Like so many of the maestros soundtracks, there's a nice mix of elegance and pulpy soundscapes. This version has 13 tracks in all – 6 of which are previously unreleased – and the titles include "Professione Flauto", "Alba Prima", "Dolcissima", "Professione Figlio", "Trio Per L'Alea" and more. CD
