A rare Ennio Morricone soundtrack from the late 70s – recorded at a time when the maestro was moving onto bigger fame in the US, yet could still create a great old school score when he wanted! The style here is nice and dark – lots of spare, isolated sounds – especially off-tuned piano – used in ways that recall some of the best dramatic Morricone moments of the earlier part of the decade – with all the sharp sounds and stark styles that might imply! A few occasional themes echo the political tone of the film, but the whole thing's still a Morricone masterpiece all the way through – with titles that include "Canto Basco", "Atto Di Dolore", "Notte Oscura Notte Chiara", "Antefatto E Preparazione", "Flashback", and "Camioncino Misterioso". CD also features 8 more bonus tracks – and great remastering too! (Limited edition.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

GDM (Italy), 1976. New Copy
A relatively somber soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – penned for a film set in the Spanish Civil War of the 30s, and served up in a mix of moody moments! There's some really beautiful melodies on the record – gentle themes that creep out of the darkness like tiny flowers, blossoming ... CD
Le Ruffian
Beat (Italy), 1983. New Copy
A very unusual soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – scored for an adventure drama starring Lino Ventura as Le Ruffian! For the music, Morricone is sort of filling the shoes of Francois De Roubaix – who composed previously for the film's director Jose Giovanni, but had passed away before ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy
One of the more obscure Morricone soundtracks from the early 70s – and one of the more unusual ones too! The album's got a real range of tracks – from dramatic vocal numbers that step out as bold themes, to brooding orchestral tracks, to a few cool mellower ones that turn around ... 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
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
La Donna Della Domenica
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A beautifully building score from Ennio Morricone – one that's filled with tracks that start out slow, then layer on elements in a really wonderful way! The main theme is a bit dreamy, but some others are a bit dark – and are done in an arry of jagged sounds and offbeat instrumental ... 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
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
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
