A trio of groovy soundtracks from Giovanni Fusco! First up is Violenza Segreta – one of those cool early 60s Italian scores that uses a fair bit of jazz, and brings in some other groovy touches too – especially in the way the instruments are recorded, often with some light echo touches that make for some very cool sounds! La Corruzione follows in a slightly similar vein, but has a bit more of a badass vibe too – more horror touches, and a mix of groovy moments with darker sounds – often served up by some sweet electric guitar! Last up is I Sovversivi – a score that has a really vibrant, dynamic sort of approach – often a bit subdued, but still with this range that really stands out – in ways that have the instruments speaking volumes with just a small amount of effort! The package is great – a whopping 27 tracks in all – with great sound, and some rare unreleased tracks too. (Limited to 500 copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

I Crudeli
GDM (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A really wonderful western soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – done at a level that's a bit different than the usual style for the time – with more of some of the elements that the maestro might bring to later horror material! The main theme is wonderful – with a snapping snare and ... CD

One of the nicest collections of Italian western soundtracks we've ever seen – and one with an approach that really gets at the best aspects of the genre! The set's got a great ear for the subtler, simpler, sometimes gentler styles used in spaghetti western scores – and it gets past ... CD

L'Umanoide
GDM (Italy), 1979. New Copy
A weird later Ennio Morricone soundtrack – and one with some surprising use of electronics and keyboards too! The maestro has used electric instrumentation on other scores, but this one has a pretty different feel – a handful of tracks that have more of a future-sounding quality, ... 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

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

Easy Tempo (Italy), 1975. New Copy
One of the coolest Italian soundtracks we've heard in a long time – a wonderful set of tunes that moves from slinky, to easy, to groovy, and beyond! The tunes start out bubbling very spare and slow – with floating piano, moog, and other nice bits – and as the record progresses, ... CD

Easy Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A fab little soundtrack from one of our favorite Italian composers – a lost gem originally issued in 1971, with a very groovy sound! The score has Piero Umiliani picking up a bit more funk than usual – working with electric bass and keyboards to come up with some totally great tracks ... CD
