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 numbers, laying out a vision of swinging Italy that really makes us wish we were there! Titles include "Il Profeta", "Abbiamo Capito", and "Topo Di Campagna", all done in a number of versions, making for a total of 16 cuts in all! La Matriarca is even better – built around one lovely little melody, similar to Francis Lai's legendary A Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version". 25 cuts in all – with both soundtracks on the CD!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Nell' Anno Del Signore
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A bit less groovy than some of the other Armando Trovajoli scores of the late 60s – but a soundtrack that's still got some wonderful musical moments! The film's a period piece, and the instrumentation is somewhat more traditional than some of Trovajoli's modder or bossa moments – but ... CD
Italiani Brava Gente
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy 2CDs
One of the more dramatic 60s soundtracks we've heard from the great Armando Trovajoli – a set of darkly brooding music that's perfect for the film's story of the Axis defeat in Russia during the winter of 1942! Trovajoli's got a really great way with his horns here – using them in this ... CD
La Donna Della Domenica
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A beautifully building score from Ennio Morricone – one that's filled with tracks that start out slow, then layer on elements in a really wonderful way! The main theme is a bit dreamy, but some others are a bit dark – and are done in an arry of jagged sounds and offbeat instrumental ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy
A rare non-soundtrack record from Goblin – but done in a style that's equally wonderful as their famous music for horror films! The set really shows the progressive roots from which they sprang – with a sound that's a bit fuller than some of their soundtrack work, and which also has ... CD
