A spooky early score from Ennio Morricone – recorded in the mid 60s, but with some of the best dark touches of his 70s work! I Pugni In Tasca has a very spare sound – weird wordless vocals on the main title track, then really moody music that almost lies beyond the frontiers of hearing at some points – stepping slowly out of the darkness with muted horns, weird-tuned keyboards, and other instrumental elements that are hard to pick out, and which really keep things at an unsettling level throughout. Titles include "Subdolo", "Stranissimi Giochi", "Chiuso Nel Bagno", "I Pugni In Tasca", and "Non E Un Dramma". The CD also features 2 tracks from La Cina E Vicina – "Ninna Nanna 1968" and "La Cina E Vicina" – both dark orchestral tunes that really fit the feel of the rest of the work on the collection!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Leonor
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A surprisingly warm soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially considering it was penned for a creepy film about medieval vampirism! The music has a bit of a period feel – mostly through some use of light woodwind or lute-like stringed instrumentation at points – but the ... CD
Music Box (France), 1977/1978. New Copy
A pair of great Ennio Morricone soundtracks from the late 70s – both done for French films, with that different quality he would often bring to his non-Italian work of the time! Rene La Canne has some great light moments that come as a real surprise – playful melodies that pop out here ... CD
Slalom
GDM (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A very groovy early soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done with a fantastic sound that's made even more wonderful by vocal work from I Cantori Moderni – a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers! The group has sung more famously on soundtracks by ... CD
Una Bella Grinta
CAM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1965. New Copy
An amazing set of modern jazz – penned by Italian film composer Piero Umiliani, but also played by a very hip group headed by a young Gato Barbieri! Although Gato's probably best known for his late 60s appearances on the American scene, and his 70s dates for Impulse and Flying Dutchman ... CD
Bandolero
Project 3/La La Land, 1968. New Copy
A way cooler soundtrack than you might expect – not only different than the usual western score of the time, but surprisingly sophisticated work for a movie that featured stars like Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Raquel Welch, and George Kennedy! The music was conducted by Lionel Newman, and it' ... CD
10
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
