Quite different than the usual soundtrack reissue of work from Ennio Morricone – in that the album actually features two long compositions – each from a different movie! The set begins with the beautiful "Requiem Per Un Destino" – a large suite for orchestra and chorus penned for the 1966 film Un Uomo A Meta – and done in a way that's very slow-building and dramatic – sounds that start out on the edges of darkness, then only increase their tension as the music moves on! Next is "Venuta Dal Mare", from the film Ecce Homo I Sopravvissuti – a really cool work for a small combo that features vibes, flute, harp, and percussion – plus wonderfully moody vocals from Edda Ell'Orso! Each track is quite long – and together, they offer up even more moving Morricone music than usual. (Limited to 500 copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
CAM/GDM (Italy), 1978/1980. New Copy
Ennio Morricone soundtracks for the first two La Cage Aux Follies films – back to back on a single CD! The first La Cage Aux Follies soundtrack was a huge international hit for Morricone – quite a surprise, given the warmth and whimsy in the music – which is a real change from ... CD
Testa O Croce
Saimel (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A weird sort of spaghetti western soundtrack – one that's got a feel that's a lot more playful than you'd guess from its cover – not just from some of the vocal numbers in the set, but also from the cool changes on the instrumental grooves! Some tracks are very heavy on organ – ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1964. New Copy
Bold action sounds from one of the best Italian maestros of the blood and sandals generation – and a very rich soundtrack throughout from the mighty Angelo Francesco Lavagnino! Angelo's talent for drama gets going right from the start – with brash horns over strong percussion – ... CD
Right Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ... CD
Mondo Di Notte Oggi
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A sexy Euro soundtrack from the 70s – penned for a film that's apparently filled with lots of scantily clad showgirls! The style is totally sweet – often heavy on the keyboards, or on the strings – slightly slinky one minute, then soaring to the skies in a Love Unlimited ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1971/1972. New Copy
A pair of early 70s soundtracks from Armando Trovajoli – both of them overlooked, and both of them pretty darn groovy! Il Vichingo Venuto Dal Sud has a jangly English-language theme at the start – but then soon drifts into wonderfully mellow territory that mixes jazzy Fender Rhodes ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1964. New Copy
A groovy early score from Armando Trovajoli – and one that's definitely got a number of tracks in the mod side of his spectrum! The main theme and a few other numbers use plenty of guitar – romping in a style that echoes some London modes of the mid 60s, but with a definite Trovajoli ... CD
Slalom
GDM (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A very groovy early soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done with a fantastic sound that's made even more wonderful by vocal work from I Cantori Moderni – a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers! The group has sung more famously on soundtracks by ... CD
Leonor
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A surprisingly warm soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially considering it was penned for a creepy film about medieval vampirism! The music has a bit of a period feel – mostly through some use of light woodwind or lute-like stringed instrumentation at points – but the ... CD
10
Warner/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy
Back in the day, we remember digging the movie 10 for the fact of Bo Derek's bareness – but these days, we're more likely to love it for this sweet little soundtrack from Henry Mancini! The score's a bit different than the sound of Hank in years past – and the high points are some ... CD
