A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, and sort of satanic! Biance Di Renata Cortiglioni is the singer, and she's much more word-based than Edda Dell'Orso – and it appears that her vocals are overdubbed to create this cool sort of chorus effect – one that only makes the whole thing sound even creepier! In addition to the snapping rhythms of the vocal tunes, there's also some nice sprightly elements on the instrumental cuts too – not upbeat or funky, but an offbeat way that's got a jaunty snare for propulsion. Titles include "Fratello Biondo", "Guerra E Pace Polle E Brace", "Amore Col Cuore", and "Grazie Zia". 14 tracks – with images from the film too. (Limited edition – with bonus download!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A full, dramatic score for one of the classic Ringo films from the 60s – penned by Carlo Rustichelli in a style that's almost more Hollywood than the usual spaghetti soundtrack of the time – thanks to rich orchestrations, some occasional chorus vocals, and a style that gets all dark and ... 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
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
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
Sebastian (with bonus tracks)
Dot/Intrada, 1968. New Copy
A real rarity from Jerry Goldsmith – groovy tunes penned for a late 60s film about an Oxford professor who's also a spy for the British Secret Service! Goldmith's music is a bit less serious than usual at points – still scored with the deep care and sensitivity we've come to love in ... CD
Intrada, 1962. New Copy
One of the greatest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – and a record that showed the world that he could do a lot more than just crime jazz and groovy tunes! The title track is a well-known gem from the Mancini songbook – perfect for the bittersweet, melancholy of the film – ... CD
