CD


5.00 12

A groovy erotic film score by Piero Umiliani – his soundtrack for 1970's Le Isole Dell'Amore – and it's a wonderfully arranged one by the maestro! The film is apparently Island-set, so you can expect some raw percussion and a sunny vibe overall – but it's actually got a lot more going on! The strings are lovely, there's a lot of groovy chorus vocals and layers of nstrumentation. Simply put, this is Piero Umiliani here – he's a composer who goes well beyond cliched exotica! This Quartet Records edition is jam packed with bonus tracks, too – with the complete original album and many alternate versions and extended bits – with 41 tracks in all! Includes "Le Isolle Dell'Amore", "Tamoure Titoli", "Papete Aru", "Vele Al Vento", "Comunita' Hippy", "La Danza Del Turista", "Corale Isole Dal Tema", "Palme E Cocchi", "Nuku" and more – plus nearly 2 dozen bonus tracks.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A very goofy film – as you'd no doubt guess from the cover image – scored with some equally mad music from the great Piero Umiliani! The music's got a lot more exotic touches than you'd usually hear from Umiliani – almost echoes of the blood and sandals genre of Italian scoring ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A driving 60s spy soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – and a perfect bridge between his earlier jazz work and his groovier styles to come! The album's almost in a crime jazz mode – ala American work of a few years before – but there's also some sweet touches that definitely mark it ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A female doctor in a military hospital – with all the goofy results you could expect from an Italian sex comedy! Piero Umiliani's music definitely matches the mood of the piece – plenty playful at most points, with styles that move between clever themes, odd melodies, and some sweeter, ... CD
Fin De Semana Al Desnudo
Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy
A sprightly little soundtrack – penned by Anton Garcia Abril for an equally sprightly 60s comedy – complete with all the great tones and groovy moments you might expect! There's a nice dose of jazz in the mix – similar to early 60s Italian soundtracks – but the overall ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1978. New Copy
A later entry in the Pink Panther soundtrack series – but one that's still got plenty of great Henry Mancini touches! Themes are plenty playful, and also have some slight electric moments alongside the orchestral scoring – although most of the album's best instrumentation comes out in ... CD
Operazione Poker
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A really cool spy soundtrack from the Italian 60s scene – put together by Piero Umiliani with lots of jazzy touches! The music here is a nice change from the more obvious, more familiar American spy modes of the time – and often uses some cool vibes mixed with horns, to create this ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1978. New Copy
A wild one from Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the disco promise of the title, but which still has some of the cool playful touches of Umiliani's work in movies too! The record may well be the funkiest that Piero ever cut – and was done ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1973/1975. New Copy
A masterpiece of moody keyboards – two killer 70s scores from the great Dave Grusin! First up is The Friends of Eddie Coyle – wonderful music for a superb late Robert Mitchum film – never available on record, at least that we know of – and filled with the kind of groovy, ... CD
Hawaii Five-O
Capitol/Film Score Monthly, 1969. New Copy
If Hawaii was this funky, we'd move there in a minute – and honestly, we wouldn't be surprised if this record did a heck of a lot for the image of state back in the day! The soundtrack is one of our all-time favorites – a driving batch of larger orchestrations that is heavy on ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
An incredible soundtrack from Morricone's best period ever! The score has that totally sublime Morricone quality that you'll find on on a small handful of his best works – like La Donna Invisible, Photo Prohibite, Le Casse, and Metti Una Sera A Cena – and it's filled with amazingly ... CD
Colgems/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy 2 CDs
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1976. New Copy 2CDs
Sublime sounds from Piero Piccioni – one of the Italian soundtrack genius' best moments of the mid 70s! The album's got a nicely laidback, slinky sort of feel – one that's almost a 70s update of the vibe Piero first laid down in Tenth Victim – with snakey keyboard bits and sax ... CD
