One movie, and two different soundtracks – each handled by really great composers, and packaged here with a wealth of bonus tracks too! First up is the Piero Piccioni version of the score – put together with these brooding, subtle sounds that are then expanded nicely in orchestrations by Bruno Nicolai – almost a bit fuller on orchestrations than usual for Italian scores of this time – but also filled with cool percussion, exotic instrumentation, and other cool touches that really make the music shine! Titles include "Bora Bora", "Tamoure Festival", "Tamoure Nella Sera", "Eros In Hiro", "Tahiti Tamore", and "I'Sola Incanta". CD also features 17 more bonus tracks worth of music by Piccioni! Next up is the Les Baxter soundtrack – not classic exotica, but some fantastic soundtrack work with a groovy late 60s feel! Many of the tracks have a rumbling electric bass and some warm keyboards underneath a canopy of sexy strings – in a way that sounds like some of the best Italian scores from the late 60s, which probably accompanied exotic sex films as silly as this one! Titles include "Coral Cliffs", "Schooner", "Amber Skin", "Trade Winds", "Emerald Sea", and "Bora Bora". CD features 22 more bonus tracks from Les, too – making for a huge 60 titles in all!

Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy
A groovy erotic film score by Piero Umiliani – his soundtrack for 1970's Le Isole Dell'Amore – and it's a wonderfully arranged one by the maestro! The film is apparently Island-set, so you can expect some raw percussion and a sunny vibe overall – but it's actually got a lot more ... CD
Marcia Trionfale
Quartet (Spain), 1976. New Copy
A great little soundtrack for the film Marcia Trionfale – composed by Nicola Piovani – one that deftly blends some disparate moods! The film combines an Italian military barracks setting with forbidden romance, which you'd think would be a difficult juggling act for the composer – ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1976. New Copy 2CDs
Sublime sounds from Piero Piccioni – one of the Italian soundtrack genius' best moments of the mid 70s! The album's got a nicely laidback, slinky sort of feel – one that's almost a 70s update of the vibe Piero first laid down in Tenth Victim – with snakey keyboard bits and sax ... CD
Nell' Anno Del Signore
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
A bit less groovy than some of the other Armando Trovajoli scores of the late 60s – but a soundtrack that's still got some wonderful musical moments! The film's a period piece, and the instrumentation is somewhat more traditional than some of Trovajoli's modder or bossa moments – but ... CD
La Donna Della Domenica
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A beautifully building score from Ennio Morricone – one that's filled with tracks that start out slow, then layer on elements in a really wonderful way! The main theme is a bit dreamy, but some others are a bit dark – and are done in an arry of jagged sounds and offbeat instrumental ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy
A rare non-soundtrack record from Goblin – but done in a style that's equally wonderful as their famous music for horror films! The set really shows the progressive roots from which they sprang – with a sound that's a bit fuller than some of their soundtrack work, and which also has ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this CD reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy
Back in the day, we remember digging the movie 10 for the fact of Bo Derek's bareness – but these days, we're more likely to love it for this sweet little soundtrack from Henry Mancini! The score's a bit different than the sound of Hank in years past – and the high points are some ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1962. New Copy
Lots of jazziness here – including tight piano, snapping snare, and moody vibes – all served up in one of the best early soundtracks we've heard from Piero Piccioni! The core of the record features the original EP release of the film score – some of the most tight, tuneful ... CD
