4.60 12

Great 60s grooves from Carlo Savina – two playful comedic scores from the 60s, both filled with whimsical instrumental touches! Veneri Al Sole is excellent right from the start – with a Piero Piccioni-like blend of jazz, Latin rhythms, and some mod 60s instrumentation – especially on organ, electric harpsichord, and vibes, which both ring out on some of the album's best tracks – in ways that have sonic properties that go way beyond their familiar use! The record's a great example of the way that 60s Italian composers were really changing things around – and that spirit follows strongly on Veneri In Collegio – a set of tracks that's almost more vivid overall – especially in the way it uses wider woodwind passages to flesh out the sound. CD features 26 tracks in all – with great remastering! (Limited edition – with bonus download card.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Testa O Croce
Saimel (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A weird sort of spaghetti western soundtrack – one that's got a feel that's a lot more playful than you'd guess from its cover – not just from some of the vocal numbers in the set, but also from the cool changes on the instrumental grooves! Some tracks are very heavy on organ – ... CD
La Colt E La Mia Legge
Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. New Copy
Spare, moody and evocative Italian western film score grooves from Carlo Savina – with a sound built around an acoustic guitar and revolving accompaniment of trumpet, woozy organ, harmonica and occasional orchestral heft! It’s cool stuff, especially in the quieter moments, which are ... CD
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
La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa/L'Infermiera
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974/1975. New Copy
A duo of mid 70s Italian erotic comedy scores – Alessandro Alessandroni's La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa and Gianfranco Plenizio's L'Inermiera from '74 and '75 – back-to-back! La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa features fun waltzy numbers with tinkering keys and sweet strings, and some of the ... 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
I Mongoli
Digitmovies (Italy), 1961. New Copy 2CDs
Mario Nascimbene's soaring soundtrack to I Mongoli – which may one of the most strangely cast movies of its time – but the soundtrack is incredible! The movie is about Genghis Khan's invasion of Poland, and it stars. . .wait for it . . .wait for it . . .Jack Palance and Anita Ekburg! ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1957. New Copy
A mix of old school soundtrack modes from Giorgio Fabor – that great blend of jazzy instrumentation and more sentimental modes that you'd find in Italian films of the 50s! The style's a bit less lean than Italian modes of the next decade, but still very expressive in a way that's different ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1963/1964. New Copy
Very groovy early work from Armando Trovajoli – two early 60s film scores, back to back on a single CD! Che Fine Ha Fatto Toto Baby has all the great jaunty jazzy elements we love in Trovajoli's late 60s material – that keen ear for cool sounds and unusual phrases, but never in a way ... CD
Sharky's Machine
Warner/Varese, 1981. New Copy
One of the coolest soundtracks ever for a Burt Reynolds film – and a hip mix of soul and jazz tracks that's gone onto become a classic over the years! The album's a compilation of sorts, but most of the material was recorded fresh for the film – and the different artists really work ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
A mad mix of soundtrack styles – pulled together in support of a mighty cool package that showcases the best of the British art films of the early 60s! By this point, UK cinema was really coming into its own – and finding a fresh voice that was neither influenced by American ... CD
Casablanca/Hot Shot (UK), 1977. New Copy
Well, it's not Jaws – but it's still pretty darn groovy – a very cool set of tracks that features some long, lush orchestrations from the great John Barry – plus some sublime disco sounds from Donna Summer! The first half of the record features Barry's extended "Return To ... CD
