Sublime bossa tunes by the legendary Ennio Morricone – packaged in a hardcover book with beautiful color images from the films! The set was put together by the folks at Cinedelic Records, and goes for only the best of the best of the groovy side of Morricone's genius – those gently floating tunes that stand out as some of his best-remembered soundtrack work of the 60s and 70s – many of which have had a lasting effect upon current scenes in Italy, Japan, and elsewhere! And even though the music is great, the book is almost more amazing – done as a hardcover with a few pages on each film – showing a vintage poster for the movie, a scene or two, and other rare images – plus a dates and information for the films and soundtrack records! The whole thing's totally great, and a must-have for any Morricone collection – with a total of 16 tracks on the CD that include "Al Convento", "Walzer Bossa Nova", "Belinda May", "Alla Serenita", "Una Voce Allo Specchio", "Can Can Delle Filly", "Argomenti", "Un Salotto Borghese", "Matto Caldo Soldi Morto Girotondo", "Sestriere", and "Scherzo Un Po Triste".  © 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
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A cool change from the usual from Ennio Morricone – a later soundtrack, and one that features some surprisingly jazzy tracks! Part of the set features the more standard Morricone orchestrations you might expect – some really great tracks that have offbeat larger arrangements that are ... 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
Una Bella Grinta
CAM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1965. New Copy
An amazing set of modern jazz – penned by Italian film composer Piero Umiliani, but also played by a very hip group headed by a young Gato Barbieri! Although Gato's probably best known for his late 60s appearances on the American scene, and his 70s dates for Impulse and Flying Dutchman ... CD
Hud/Lonely Man (with bonus tracks)
Paramount/Kritzerland, 1957/1963. New Copy
A pair of obscure soundtracks, both with a western theme – fitting together surprisingly well on a single CD! Hud is one of Paul Newman's finest early moments on screen – scored beautifully here by Elmer Bernstein, who shows a surprisingly deft ear for guitar lines – spun out in ... CD
Visit To A Small Planet/Delicate Delinquent
20th Century/Kritzerland, 1957/1960. New Copy
Two Jerry Lewis soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is the very cool Visit To A Small Planet from 1960 – a Jerry Lewis sci-fi flick, done with a cool mix of sprightly themes and spacey touches. There's a few nice theremin moments, mixed with these nice orchestral ... CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1961. New Copy
An overlooked jazz soundtrack from early 60s Hollywood – and some amazing early work from composer David Amram! Amram's always had an ear for higher-concept versions of jazz – but his approach here is a wonderful blend of modernity and spontaneity – just right for the sort of ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy
Two 70s moments from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! First up is Visions Of Eight – a wonderful Henry Mancini soundtrack, and one of his most overlooked – possibly because it was scored for an odd little film that featured the work of eight different directors! The ... CD
Fin De Semana Al Desnudo
Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy
A sprightly little soundtrack – penned by Anton Garcia Abril for an equally sprightly 60s comedy – complete with all the great tones and groovy moments you might expect! There's a nice dose of jazz in the mix – similar to early 60s Italian soundtracks – but the overall ... CD
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the all-time great soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – and one of his few film scores of the 70s to circulate at an international level too! Yet the fame of the record is very well-deserved, because the music is completely sublime – a mixture of light orchestrations and tinkling ... CD
