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.

CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the all-time great soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – and one of his few film scores of the 70s to circulate at an international level too! Yet the fame of the record is very well-deserved, because the music is completely sublime – a mixture of light orchestrations and tinkling ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy
A sweet electric groover from Stelvio Cipriani – full of keyboards and piano, mixed with some mighty delightful rhythms! The main theme is a catchy groover with a bit of a disco undercurrent, but the rest of the soundtrack really spaces things out nicely – using some slower passages, ... CD
La Lunga Spiaggia Fredda
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Early 70s soundtrack grooves from Stevio Cipriani – his work for 1971's La Lunga Spiaggia Fredda – with a sweet range of styles! It's fairly laidback for the most part, with a slow-building atmosphere – with bossa-inspired lounge grooves, spare acoustic guitar, groovy electic ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A very goofy film – as you'd no doubt guess from the cover image – scored with some equally mad music from the great Piero Umiliani! The music's got a lot more exotic touches than you'd usually hear from Umiliani – almost echoes of the blood and sandals genre of Italian scoring ... CD
Gli Ultimi Giorni Di Pompei
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy
Dark sounds for gladiator action – served up here in this full orchestral score from Angelo Lavagnino! The music is heavy on strings – sometimes used in these thin, tense passages – sometimes soaring out alongside fuller horns as the drama increases – really giving a ... CD
La Moglie Giovane
Beat (Italy), 1974. New Copy
A warm and sexy score from Stelvio Cipriani – penned with a beautiful blend of woodwinds, keyboards, and sweet bossa-styled grooves! There's a bit more fullness here than in some of Cipriani's more erotic work, and a bit more groove too – although most of the music moves at a ... CD
Enfantasme
Beat (Italy), 1978. New Copy
A cool late 70s soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani – for the Italian & French co-production Enfantasme – a film we know little about, but with a nicely dramatic score that dabbles a bit on spacier 70s Euro sounds! There's a bit of electric piano and Moogy sounds, along with more ... CD
La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa/L'Infermiera
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974/1975. New Copy
A duo of mid 70s Italian erotic comedy scores – Alessandro Alessandroni's La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa and Gianfranco Plenizio's L'Inermiera from '74 and '75 – back-to-back! La Signora Gioca Bene A Scopa features fun waltzy numbers with tinkering keys and sweet strings, and some of the ... CD
La Colt E La Mia Legge
Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. New Copy
Spare, moody and evocative Italian western film score grooves from Carlo Savina – with a sound built around an acoustic guitar and revolving accompaniment of trumpet, woozy organ, harmonica and occasional orchestral heft! It’s cool stuff, especially in the quieter moments, which are ... CD
Gringo, Getta Il Fucile
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
I Mongoli
Digitmovies (Italy), 1961. New Copy 2CDs
Mario Nascimbene's soaring soundtrack to I Mongoli – which may one of the most strangely cast movies of its time – but the soundtrack is incredible! The movie is about Genghis Khan's invasion of Poland, and it stars. . .wait for it . . .wait for it . . .Jack Palance and Anita Ekburg! ... 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
