A lost treasure from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack written for a crime film starring Charles Bronson & Telly Savalas, and handled with all the spare subtlety of his best work! Bruno Nicolai's directing the orchestra on this one – and isolated instruments include electric harpsichord and woodwinds that drift along nicely in the tunes – mixed with some harder arrangements on a few of the album's more driving cuts. Morricone strikes a great balance here – occasionally hitting sweet notes, but then often falling into these dark depths that perfectly fit the bleak world of the film. Tracks include the lovely slow groover "Riassunto", plus the tracks "Rito Finale", "Svolta Definitiva", "Dolcemente Acre", "Norme Con Ironie", "Citta Violenta", and "Mille Volte Un Grido". CD a whopping 21 tracks in all! (Limited to 500 copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Stark System
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
Stark sounds from Ennio Morricone – a moody soundtrack from the start of the 80s, and a bit obscure in the Morricone canon – but also a real overlooked gem that's got a feel that's quite different from some of the maestro's bigger work of the time! There's a spare, stepping quality to ... CD

Il Profeta/La Matriarca
GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. New Copy
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 ... CD

Cinevox (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
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

Mondo Di Notte Oggi
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A sexy Euro soundtrack from the 70s – penned for a film that's apparently filled with lots of scantily clad showgirls! The style is totally sweet – often heavy on the keyboards, or on the strings – slightly slinky one minute, then soaring to the skies in a Love Unlimited ... CD
