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.

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.
