Francesco De Masi — Alla Conquista Dell'Arkansas ... CD 9.99

A soaring, joyous score from Francesco De Masi – not nearly as dark as some of the other spaghetti western soundtracks of the time – and filled with the sort of proud, bold sounds you might expect from a more mainstream American western! There's still plenty creative going on in the orchestrations, though – lots of cool woodwind and brass passages, layered with the strings to create rich textures in sound – and often holding back energy with this sort of inherent drama that really keeps things moving nicely. There's a bit of chorus vocals at points, from I Cantori Moderni – who sound more heavenly than usual – and titles include "Armonica Western", "Arkansas Commento No 1", "Arkansas Suspense", "Yucca Theme", and "Non Sparate Sul Cantate".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Quella Sporca Storia Nel West
Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A really beautiful little soundtrack from Francesco De Masi – scored with a depth of feeling that's really surprising, and which goes way past the obvious! There's some beautiful woodwind passages that arc and turn with a quality that's almost fragile – yet bold enough to paint a vivid ... CD

I Mongoli
Digitmovies (Italy), 1961. New Copy 2CDs
Mario Nascimbene's soaring soundtrack to I Mongoli – which may one of the most strangely cast movies of its time – but the soundtrack is incredible! The movie is about Genghis Khan's invasion of Poland, and it stars. . .wait for it . . .wait for it . . .Jack Palance and Anita Ekburg! ... CD

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

Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy
A great new soundtrack from the legendary Fabio Frizzi – proof that he hasn't lost any of his talents over the course of his many years in film scoring! The music has a really timeless feel – almost more late 70s/early 80s than you'd expect from the more recent vintage of the film ... CD

Sartana Non Perdona
Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A great late 60s western score from Italian composer Francesco De Masi – hitting on all of favored sounds to accompany the best Italian made westerns of the era – rustic solo guitar, string-tightened tension, both lonely and densely orchestrated horns, and swaggery mood to spare! ... CD

La Bestia Nello Spazio
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A very cool sci fi soundtrack from Marcello Giombini – as sexy as the image on the cover might imply, but also pretty darn electric and spacey as well! The album echoes some of Giombini's earlier electronic sound library material – and is often spare, with heavy use of keyboards – ... CD

Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembe ... 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
