CD


4.50 12

An overlooked gem from the mighty Piero Piccioni – scored for a 70s comedy with Alberto Sordi, and served up with some nice global touches in the music! The best tunes have a bouncy sound that's almost samba – but inflected with a lot of Italian soundtrack charm – which makes for a mixing of modes that's completely charming, and almost a warmer bossa take on a batucada style! Some tunes get even more stripped-down, with elements that show the orchestral work from Berto Pisano – and I Cantori Moderni lend chorus vocals to a few moments too. Titles include "Pic Nic Calypso", "West Africa", "Sketch Notturno", "Safari Esquisito", and "Eexperanca Em Lab Com Rugido Do Leao". Features 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks too!

Belle Ma Povere
Digitmovies (Italy), 1957. New Copy
A great old school soundtrack from the mighty Piero Piccioni – one that predates some of his stronger jazz use in film, but which still has a pretty swinging sound overall! The music often has a very playful feel – either light melodies on lean instrumentation, or some even better ... 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

I Fratelli Karamazov
Kronos (Austria), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs
A really great soundtrack for a late 60s film version of The Brothers Karamazov – scored by the mighty Piero Piccioni with a sensibility that's nicely balanced between epic modes and more personal, individual moments! The orchestrations on the album are often nicely restrained – never ... CD

La Lunga Spiaggia Fredda
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Early 70s soundtrack grooves from Stevio Cipriani – his work for 1971's La Lunga Spiaggia Fredda – with a sweet range of styles! It's fairly laidback for the most part, with a slow-building atmosphere – with bossa-inspired lounge grooves, spare acoustic guitar, groovy electic ... CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1960/1961. New Copy
Two early horror soundtracks from Armando Trovajoli – back to back on a single CD! First up is Seddok L'Erede Di Satana (also known as Atom Age Vampire) – a score that's got lots of dark moments, way more so than Trovajoli's later bossa-styled work – with these really odd, ... CD

Trastevere
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the more striking soundtracks from the brothers Guido & Maurizio De Angelis – a range of music that goes way past their usual groovy sounds! There's a really unusual blend of styles going on here – a mix of modern Italian modes and some much more traditional sounds – ... CD

Galileo (plus bonus tracks)
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A really compelling early soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that's done for an historical film, but which really points the way towards horror scores to come! The film depicts the struggles that Galileo had with the Catholic church – and really creates this sort of earthy, organic ... CD

I Due Sanculotti
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A crazy comedy soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – one that mixes some 19th century period touches with lots of light and livey styles from the Italian scene of the 60s! Some numbers have this snapping drama in the rhythm, but a much lighter feel on the top – creating a sense of interplay ... CD

Intrada, 1969/1971. New Copy 2CD
A pair of great soundtracks from the legendary Michel Legrand – including a huge amount of never-heard work from The Picasso Summer! First up, though, is Summer Of 42 – one of Michel Legrand's greatest moments of the 70s – a sweetly romantic score that lasted a lot longer than ... CD

See No Evil
Intrada, 1971. New Copy
A striking 70s score from Elmer Bernstein – not one of his best-known soundtracks of the time, but a surprising standout nonetheless! There's a bold, dramatic feel to the music at first – almost like some of Bernstein's famous work of a decade before – but as things move on, he ... CD

Columbia/Intrada, 1959. New Copy
Really wonderful work from the great Elmer Bernstein – from a relatively unlikely source as well! The music here was all composed for the General Electric Theater TV show – a regular anthology program hosted by Ronald Reagan, with a shifting dramatic cast – but one that's scored ... CD

Once Is Not Enough
Intrada, 1975. New Copy
Well, we can never get enough Henry Mancini – and here he delivers a lush, lovely soundtrack for the Hollywood adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's Once Is Not Enough! It's a mid 70s work, but the feel is nicely in line with some his more elegant 60s soundtracks – with lightly soaring ... CD
