Sublime work from Piero Piccioni – a really Morricone-like soundtrack, and one that's filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies! There's a lightly gliding feel to the record that's really wonderful – light lines on organ, topped with wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni, alternating to suit the mood of the film, and really bringing out some of the most lovely qualities in Piccioni's music. The tunes unfold gently, like the petals of a flower in soft summer rains – and there's also an undercurrent of darkness at a few points, but one that hardly gets in the way of the breathy, bossa-styled tunes. Titles include "La Torre", "Da Soli In Vacanza", "Capriccio", "The Redcoat", "I Cavalli", and "Nero Piu Bianco". CD also features 11 more bonus tracks – really wonderful alternates of the main tunes, making for a huge 25 track package!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Definite demonic sounds from Piero Piccioni – one of the darkest soundtracks we've ever heard from the legendary Italian film composer – and a real standout from the rest of his work of the 60s! There's some very oddly-tuned instrumentation on the set – weird organ that's not ... CD

Papaya Dei Caraibi
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
Sexy sounds from the Italian scene of the 70s – music that's every bit as warmly erotic as you'd imagine from the cover! But as you might guess from Stelvio Cipriani, there's also a nice undercurrent of funk, too – kind of a gentle groove that's almost like some Euro sound library cuts ... CD
