La Scuola Delle Vergini (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 596234) Saimel (Spain), 1968 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.70 12

A really groovy little soundtrack – filled with sweet mod musical elements, including a fair bit of great organ and guitar! The organ is especially nice – used in that stretched-out, almost spooky way you'd hear on some of Piero Piccioni's best soundtracks of the time – still rooted in jazz, but quite different than American use of the instrument – and a great demonstration of the way Italian soundtrack maestros like Carlo Savina could really transform the sound of an instrument, and come up with all these great musical elements in the process! Most of the rhythms are nice and laidback – sexy, but not in a slinky sort of way – and the soundtrack is a real revelation that has us thinking of Savina a lot more highly than usual. Titles include "Esclavas", "Contest Jazz", "Down Left", "Influence", "Valzer Cecko", and "Organo Solo In Un Mattino Di Guerra". CD also features 10 more bonus tracks too – all previously unreleased!

Wonderfully tight work from Mandrill – a real standout from the years at Arista – and a set that seems to take all the key instrumental energy of the Polydor years, and focus it on a soulful groove that's even more soaring than before! The energy is wonderful – very much like the ... CD

GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. New Copy
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best ... CD
