Alla Conquista Dell'Arkansas

CD (Item 592223) Beat (Italy), 1965 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


5.00 12

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.

Il Terrore Di Notte
Saimel (Spain), 1962. New Copy
A great early crime soundtrack from Franceso De Masi – quite different from his music of the 70s, with a dark orchestral vibe that's mighty nice! De Masi's going for some of the best American crime styles of the early 60s – especially the sense of drama that you'd get on TV crime ... CD
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
Una Bara Per Lo Sceriffo
Beat (Italy), Mid 60s. New Copy
A really sweet soundtrack to an earlier Spaghetti Western flick – 1965's Una Barra Per Lo Sceriffo, composed by Francesco De Masi! As with most of these 60s western gems, this one opens with a very cool theme – "A Lone And Angry Man", sung in English and with kind of a fun, ... 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
La Moglie Giovane
Beat (Italy), 1974. New Copy
A warm and sexy score from Stelvio Cipriani – penned with a beautiful blend of woodwinds, keyboards, and sweet bossa-styled grooves! There's a bit more fullness here than in some of Cipriani's more erotic work, and a bit more groove too – although most of the music moves at a ... 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
Beat (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy
A late entry in the Black Emanuelle series starring Laura Gemser and featuring music by Nico Fidenco – La Via Della Prostituzione – featuring a mix of sulty Fidenco sounds and more funky and disco oriented grooves! Much of the material here has never been released before this great CD ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A pretty far reaching set of grooves from Gianni Marchetti for director Joe D'Amato's Le Notti Porno Nel Mondo No 2 – from chiming acoustic guitar, soaring strings and echoing horns that would pair just as well with a Spaghetti Western as an erotic film, to funky bongo flavored disco and well ... CD
Operazione Poker
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A really cool spy soundtrack from the Italian 60s scene – put together by Piero Umiliani with lots of jazzy touches! The music here is a nice change from the more obvious, more familiar American spy modes of the time – and often uses some cool vibes mixed with horns, to create this ... CD
