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.

Una Pura Formalita
GDM (Italy), 1994. New Copy
Even in his later years, Ennio Morricone had a way with a soundtrack that was unlike anyone else – even most of his previous material, too! The style here is very fresh – a blend of vibrant violin passages and more slow-moving string orchestrations – echoing some of Morricone's ... 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

L'Umanoide
GDM (Italy), 1979. New Copy
A weird later Ennio Morricone soundtrack – and one with some surprising use of electronics and keyboards too! The maestro has used electric instrumentation on other scores, but this one has a pretty different feel – a handful of tracks that have more of a future-sounding quality, ... CD

I Due Sanculotti
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
A crazy comedy soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – one that mixes some 19th century period touches with lots of light and livey styles from the Italian scene of the 60s! Some numbers have this snapping drama in the rhythm, but a much lighter feel on the top – creating a sense of interplay ... CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy
The movie's a spooky one, with some great tense moments in the soundtrack – but Riz Ortolani also brings his warmer sensibility to bear as well, and creates that magical mixture of darkness and light that you'll find in the best Italian film scores of the 70s! The music is mostly orchestral, ... 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

Grazie – Nonna
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
Swirling strings and stepping keyboards from Enrico Simonetti – an Italian soundtrack composer who also also has a great ear for a sexy groove! Mellower melodies are mixed with Barry White-styled soulful strings – in a blend that creates some excellent funky instrumentals at a few key ... CD

One of the weirdest versions of Pinocchio you'll ever see – not the animated cartoon by Disney, but a strange live action production for 70s Italian TV! The music here is surprisingly great – and comes off with a flair that's maybe even more complicated than the images on the screen ... CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1964. New Copy
An early spooky soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a composer we usually know best for more playful work of the 60s, but who really shines here in his score for a film also known as Castle Of Blood! The music has this tense, spare sort of feel – almost prefacing more atonal moments to come ... CD

I Tre Del Colorado
Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A vibrant 60s western score – done with dramatic themes that echo the American style of the 50s, although with some key spaghetti western touches as well! The main theme has a triumphant feel that comes back at a few key points – but more interesting are the mellower passages, some of ... CD
