One of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 70s – a wonderful score written by Piero Piccioni and conducted by Berto Pisano – easily our idea of heaven! The tunes are languid and laidback – moving in a way that's slow, yet often with an undercurrent of funk too – this great stepping bassline that moves underneath these very cool organ parts, and some haunting strings and tinkling piano too – recorded beautifully, and with a bit of light vocals from Nora Orlandi. Titles include "Vertigo", "Spirale D'Amore", "Andante Improvviso", "Guitars", "Turquoise", and "Significa Amore". This excellent version features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 17 more numbers added to the original 11 – with amazing variations on the theme, and other wondeful bits! (Please note there is some slight mastering noise on track 19 that appear on all copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Wonderful wonderful stuff – exactly the kind of mod soundtrack we've really come to love from the legendary Piero Piccioni! The music's a very cool blend of jazz and more 60s-styled rhythms – including some groovers in the "jerk" or "shake" modes – all served ... CD

Jazzy goodness from the wonderful Piero Umiliani – a set that's got some sweet instrumental touches from Chet Baker on trumpet, plus piano from Umiliani himself! The overall feel is very much in an early 60s crime jazz style – that best Italian groove before more mod and bossa-styled ... CD

A pair of weird soundtracks from Italian soundtrack heavy Fabio Fizzi – the stylistically sprawling music for Zombi 2 (released in America as Zombie) and some later compositions for Un Gatto Nel Cervello! The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to ... CD

Great grooves from Piero Umiliani – a sweet 70s session of sound library material, served up in a warm blend of funky rhythms and mighty nice keyboards! Hammond is in the lead on most numbers – echoing those cool odd phrasing styles that Umiliani used in the late 60s, but given more of ... CD

Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a ... CD
