4.90 12

Heavenly sounds from Mario Nascimbene – one of the more compelling soundtracks we've heard from the Italian peplum years! The music floats along beautifully – often light woodwinds, or light chorus passages to handle the melody – and some spare percussion moving quietly to create just the hint of rhythm. The approach moves far from some of the more dramatic cliches of the genre, and comes across with a sensitivity that's really striking – a lot more than you might expect! CD features 17 tracks from the film – all beautifully remastered. (Limited edition – with bonus download card.)  © 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
Gli Ultimi Giorni Di Pompei
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy
Dark sounds for gladiator action – served up here in this full orchestral score from Angelo Lavagnino! The music is heavy on strings – sometimes used in these thin, tense passages – sometimes soaring out alongside fuller horns as the drama increases – really giving a ... CD
2 + 5 Missione Hydra
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy
One of the wildest soundtracks we've ever heard from Nico Fidenco – penned for a cool Italian sci-fi film of the late 60s! Nico's probably best known for his erotic work of the 70s, but this sweet 60s set is possibly even cooler – a wonderful mix of playful styles and offbeat ... CD
Gringo, Getta Il Fucile
Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy
Part western, part Latin American – yet also filled with lots of weird and groovy touches – a compelling set from 60s Italy that goes way way way past the obvious! The set begins with an acoustic guitar over dramatic scoring, but then moves into modes that include mod rhythms, pan ... CD
Killer Crocodile
Kronos (Austria), 1989. New Copy
A killer croc has never sounded so spooky – thanks to great soundtrack work from Riz Ortolani! Ortolani's a name that you probably know best from famous global film success of the 60s – but by the time of this late 80s album, he's really matured nicely – and has a way with dark ... CD
Beat (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy
A late entry in the Black Emanuelle series starring Laura Gemser and featuring music by Nico Fidenco – La Via Della Prostituzione – featuring a mix of sulty Fidenco sounds and more funky and disco oriented grooves! Much of the material here has never been released before this great CD ... CD
La Bestia Nello Spazio
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A very cool sci fi soundtrack from Marcello Giombini – as sexy as the image on the cover might imply, but also pretty darn electric and spacey as well! The album echoes some of Giombini's earlier electronic sound library material – and is often spare, with heavy use of keyboards – ... CD
Cicciolina Amore Mio
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy
Sweet sexy grooves from Gianni Marchetti – a disco-era soundtrack from the end of the 70s, but one that's also got some of the lighter, slinkier touches of Italian erotic films from a few years before! The main theme – "I Was Made For Dancing" – is an English-language ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A crazy exploitation genre fusion in the Emanuelle series – in which the globe trotting erotic adventurer winds up in situations with the world's last Amazonian cannibals – an anything goes entry in 70s sleazy cinema scored with some of the funkiest music we've ever heard from Italian ... CD
I Magliari
Beat (Italy), 1959. New Copy
An excellent jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – captured at a great early point in his film career, when he was still mixing in lots of elements from his work in jazz as well! The style here echoes some of the French jazz soundtracks of the new wave – and the tunes often sport ... CD
1000 Dollari Sul Nero
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
Loads of great guitar in this classic 60s western – sometimes twangy, sometimes driving, and sometimes mixed nicely with trumpet – all for a sound that really makes the score one of the best from the spaghetti western generation! There's a bold, fresh approach to the whole thing – ... 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
