4.70 12

One of the most sentimental scores we've ever heard from Stelvio Cipriani – but one that also hangs onto all of his great 70s mellow modes as well! Often, Cipriani's 70s sounds are turned towards love and sex – but here, they're cast towards a heartbreaking narrative that's underscored with some great melancholy moments – a great reworking of Cipriani's usual styles that shows us another side of his genius! Warm orchestrations mix with great piano lines and isolated woodwind solos on most numbers – produced to perfection with a sweet Italian style. A few cuts get a bit more carnivalesque, but still with an undercurrent of sadness – and the CD features 15 tracks from the film, with a nice overall package too.

Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy
Part western, part Latin American – yet also filled with lots of weird and groovy touches – a compelling set from 60s Italy that goes way way way past the obvious! The set begins with an acoustic guitar over dramatic scoring, but then moves into modes that include mod rhythms, pan ... CD

Delitto A Porta Romana
Digitmovies (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A later soundtrack Franco Micalizzi, Delitto A Romana – done with funky elements you'd expect from an early 70s Italian police flick – even though this one was done in 1980! It's fun stuff, with some some funky horns and jazz flute – plus some disco influenced guitar grooves. It' ... CD
