A trio of soundtracks from Piero Piccioni – all done for films directed by Francesco Rosi! First up is a great batch of tracks from Le Mani Sulla Citta – an early 60s film handled by Piccioni in a mix of jazz and some of the groovier touches he'd bring to his late 60s scores – really changing things up nicely between some piano-led groovers, organ numbers, and a few other tunes that use this really great echoey electric bass – quite sinister, but really propulsive too! There's 17 tracks from the film on the CD – way more than the original 45 rpm release. Salvatore Giuliano is represented by a 14 minute suite of tracks – very dark music that builds slowly from a brooding bassline, with lots of deep tones! Il Caso Mattei is featured on another long track – one that runs for almost 20 minutes, and which has some cool electronic effects in the mix – creating an almost pulse-like feel at points!

Belle Ma Povere
Digitmovies (Italy), 1957. New Copy
A great old school soundtrack from the mighty Piero Piccioni – one that predates some of his stronger jazz use in film, but which still has a pretty swinging sound overall! The music often has a very playful feel – either light melodies on lean instrumentation, or some even better ... CD

Libera Amore Mio
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
An unusual soundtrack from the great Ennio Morricone – penned for a film set during fascist Italy of the 30s and 40s, but with a playful feel that's much more in keeping with later Italian cinema than anything that might have been scored at the time! The sound here is a bit less Morricone-esq ... CD

Il Demonio
Beat (Italy), 1964. New Copy
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

Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
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 ... CD

Pizza Connection
GDM (Italy), 1985. New Copy
A great mid 80s mafia soundtrack by Carlo Savina! The film's setting is New York City, and sure enough, there are some sly little nods to The Godfather in the orchestrations by Savina, but it's ultimately got a masterfully composed vibe that's plenty original! It's got a nice, classical string-la ... CD

Mio Caro Dr Grasler
GDM (Italy), 1990. New Copy
A romantic later soundtrack by Ennio Morricone for Mio Caro Dr Grasler, aka The Bachelor – in a timeless piano and strings mode! The setting of the film is pre-World War I Austria, and it has a strong dramatic cast, so the elegance is quite befitting – but it's never stodgy or anything ... CD

7 Volte 7 (with bonus tracks)
GDM (Italy), 1968. New Copy
Some of the grooviest work we've ever heard from Armando Trovajoli – one of his sweet 60s soundtracks for the 7 Golden Men series of heist films – done with a great mix of mod jazz and lots of vocal touches! The vocals are especially great – sung by I Cantori Moderni – but ... CD

Goodbye & Amen
GDM (Italy), 1977. New Copy
One of the coolest soundtracks we've ever heard from this legendary cop and crime duo – a set that's filled with keyboards that have a mighty dark feel! The overall approach is still somewhere in the territory of other 70s DeAngelis film scores – but the keyboards echo lots of the ... 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
