5.00 12

A groovy little soundtrack – put together by the DeAngelis brothers for one of the earlier pairings of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer – with a sound that's arguably better than most of their later soundtracks! There's plenty of playful elements in the mix – the kind of jaunty grooves that always seemed especially well suited to Hill's moments onscreen – but there's also some great 70s moments too, of the sort that push forward from mod 60s Italian comedy grooves, with some nice exotic and bossa touches on a few of the best tracks. Instrumentation is a lot richer than other Hill/Spencer scores – and the CD features a whopping 23 tracks that include "Flying Through The Air", "Gli Amici", "Valzer Fra Amici", "Il Matto", "Samba", "Bossa", "Plata & Salud", and "Il Ballo".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

L'Uomo Di Rame
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
An overlooked treasure from the legendary Franco De Gemini – surprisingly great overall, despite the nature of the project! The tunes are mostly of a spiritual nature – designed to be played by a small group in an outdoors setting – but they've hardly got any churchy feel at all ... CD

Galileo (plus bonus tracks)
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy
A really compelling early soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that's done for an historical film, but which really points the way towards horror scores to come! The film depicts the struggles that Galileo had with the Catholic church – and really creates this sort of earthy, organic ... CD

I Due Sanculotti
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A crazy comedy soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – one that mixes some 19th century period touches with lots of light and livey styles from the Italian scene of the 60s! Some numbers have this snapping drama in the rhythm, but a much lighter feel on the top – creating a sense of interplay ... CD

One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – and a record that's probably best known for the worldwide hit "Mah Na Mah Na" – later made famous by Sesame Street, The Dave Pell Singers, and many others! The whole thing's wonderful, though – a ... CD

Lesbo (limited edition)
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy ... CD

Beat (Italy), 1979/1990. New Copy
A pair of weird soundtracks from Italian soundtrack heavy Fabio Fizzi – the stylistically sprawling music for Zombi 2 (released in America as Zombie) and some later compositions for Un Gatto Nel Cervello! The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to ... CD

Totally wonderful spy soundtrack work from Piero Umiliani – done in his best groovy style of the 60s, with a brilliant mix of jazz and mod elements throughout! Umiliani's extrapolating from the more famous spy sounds of Bond and Barry, and takes things very strongly into his own territory ... CD

Morricone fans – this one's got it all! The music is completely wonderful throughout, and a great mix of everything that makes Ennio Morricone so tremendous – a bit of bossa here, some funky bits there, and even some spookier slow passages with a nice atonal feel! The main theme of ... CD

Viva La Liberta
Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy
A contemporary film, but one that's scored with all the charms of Italian soundtracks from the 70s – particularly the sense of space and timing that graced some of the best work of that period! Marco Betta's score is nice and understated – gentle strings, isolated instruments, and ... CD

FBI Operazione Vipera Gialla
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy
One of the grooviest operations ever undertaken by the FBI – thanks to a fab 60s soundtrack from Franceso De Masi! De Masi uses plenty of jazz – some of the crime modes of the US scene of the late 50s, but also a good dose of the Italian styles of a few years later – as you'd ... CD
