A beautifully moody score from Stelvio Cipriani – a perfect illustration of his unique talent for creating sounds that are slow, yet funky – slinky, yet never cheesy – a rare and wonderful approach to tension and action in the 70s! Most numbers here have a slow-stepping electric bassline – moving very gently, to prompt other instrumentation on piano, guitar, or even fuller strings – all in gently melodic ways that work perfectly with the rhythms – and have a quality that's warmly dramatic, and never overdone – different than some of Cipriani's crime or sex scoring. CD features the full original album, beautifully remastered, plus tracks from singles too – a beautiful set throughout! (Limited edition – with bonus download card.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

GDM (Italy), 1969/1980. New Copy
Two different action soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – recorded over a decade apart, but both with a really great sound! La Legge Della Violenza comes across with more conventional 60s spaghetti styles throughout – a cool mix of dramatic themes and more whimsical moments, but ... CD
La Supplente Va In Citta
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy
A sweet score for this Italian sex comedy of the late 70s – put together with a great mix of disco and more playful styles from the great Stelvio Cipriani! Cipriani virtually invented the slinky, sexy European soundtrack a few years before – so here, he updates his style a bit for the ... CD
Libidine
Beat (Italy), 1979. New Copy
Libidinous grooves from the great Stelvio Cipriani – a set of tracks that hangs nicely between a late 70s club style and some of the slinkier sounds we've heard on Stelvio's other work! The album's got a vibe that definitely lives up to its image and title – and although the first few ... 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
Enfantasme
Beat (Italy), 1978. New Copy
A cool late 70s soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani – for the Italian & French co-production Enfantasme – a film we know little about, but with a nicely dramatic score that dabbles a bit on spacier 70s Euro sounds! There's a bit of electric piano and Moogy sounds, along with more ... CD
Beat/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1978. New Copy
It's quite possible that nobody else does a 70s soundtrack better than Stelvio Cipriani – and with a set like this, you'll certainly hear why! While other Italian composers were schooled in the 60s, and came of age in the 70s – often adopting their modes with new instrumentation and ... 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
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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1963/1964. New Copy
Very groovy early work from Armando Trovajoli – two early 60s film scores, back to back on a single CD! Che Fine Ha Fatto Toto Baby has all the great jaunty jazzy elements we love in Trovajoli's late 60s material – that keen ear for cool sounds and unusual phrases, but never in a way ... 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
