Dimenticare Palermo (The Palermo Connection)

CD (Item 631593) GDM (Italy), 1990 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 12

A later score from Ennio Morricone, but done for a lower-budget film than most of his other productions from around this time – which almost seems to have the maestro returning to some of his best crime styles of the 70s! Instrumentation is slightly more modern – a different touch on the keyboards, or production of the other live instruments – but the sense of pacing and phrasing is all Morricone all the way through, and things especially warm up as the album gets going. Titles include "Diapositive Compromettenti", "Il Vecchio Principe", "Dimenticare Palero", "I Gelsomini", and "Ritornare A Palermo".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A surprisingly warm soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially considering it was penned for a creepy film about medieval vampirism! The music has a bit of a period feel – mostly through some use of light woodwind or lute-like stringed instrumentation at points – but the ... CD
Music Box (France), 1977/1978. New Copy
A pair of great Ennio Morricone soundtracks from the late 70s – both done for French films, with that different quality he would often bring to his non-Italian work of the time! Rene La Canne has some great light moments that come as a real surprise – playful melodies that pop out here ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1979. New Copy
An overlooked late 70s score from Ennio Morricone – and one with a fair bit of early 70s styles in the music! The tunes here are a mix of some of the darker, brooding Morricone moments you'd get in thrillers – with some of the lighter, more melodic themes that always stand out – ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1969/1980. New Copy
Two different action soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – recorded over a decade apart, but both with a really great sound! La Legge Della Violenza comes across with more conventional 60s spaghetti styles throughout – a cool mix of dramatic themes and more whimsical moments, but ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A very groovy early soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done with a fantastic sound that's made even more wonderful by vocal work from I Cantori Moderni – a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers! The group has sung more famously on soundtracks by ... CD
Hardcore/Expose/Let's Get Laid
Vocalion (UK), 1975/1977. New Copy
A trio of sex film soundtracks from 70s England – but done in a way that's a lot classier than you might expect! The sounds here aren't the usual bump-n-grind you might expect from US porno – and instead, the tunes are really great soundtrack numbers, penned with a distinct ... CD
Twin Peaks – Season Two Music & More
Sacred Bones, 1991. New Copy
Great music from the second season of Twin Peaks – and a continuing illustration of the power of Angelo Baldamenti's music for the show! The strength of these simple themes and tunes is clear right from the get-go – as Angelo serves things up in a mode that's subtle, but still filled ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy
Back in the day, we remember digging the movie 10 for the fact of Bo Derek's bareness – but these days, we're more likely to love it for this sweet little soundtrack from Henry Mancini! The score's a bit different than the sound of Hank in years past – and the high points are some ... CD
