Human sacrifice never sounded so groovy – thanks to a wicked score from Carlo Savina, who really knocks it out of the park with this one! The leadoff theme is jaunty, bouncy, and almost more of a mod 60s Italian number – and the score that follows often has some other groovy touches, mixed with passages that bring in a bit of jazz, and a few more exotic elements too – the last of which are more of what you'd expect for a horror soundtrack of this nature, yet never seem to dominate too much. There's a great sense of pacing going on here – a shifting of themes as things move on, and a blend of tighter elements with some rougher percussion that almost feels like the demonic ready to break loose! Reissued with a whopping 20 tracks – and some sublime remastering. (Limited edition.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Pizza Connection
GDM (Italy), 1985. New Copy
A great mid 80s mafia soundtrack by Carlo Savina! The film's setting is New York City, and sure enough, there are some sly little nods to The Godfather in the orchestrations by Savina, but it's ultimately got a masterfully composed vibe that's plenty original! It's got a nice, classical string-la ... CD

Emergency (Italy), 2013. New Copy
A string-heavy soundtrack, but one that's got a great deal of lightness too – a surprising swing in points, and a lean use of the instrumentation that's extremely beautiful, and very fresh! There's a slight jazz sensibility to the work – almost like some of the older Keith Jarrett ... CD

Bianco, Rosso E Verdone
Beat (Italy), 1981. New Copy
A really great little soundtrack – an unusual comedic moment for Ennio Morricone, and scored with this very groovy blend of light orchestrations, gentle rhythms, and even a bit of bossa! Keyboard lines ring out with this spare, resonant feel on some of our favorite numbers – recalling ... CD

Stark System
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy
Stark sounds from Ennio Morricone – a moody soundtrack from the start of the 80s, and a bit obscure in the Morricone canon – but also a real overlooked gem that's got a feel that's quite different from some of the maestro's bigger work of the time! There's a spare, stepping quality to ... 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

La Regina Dei Tartari
Digitmovies (Italy), 1960. New Copy
The reign of the Tartars is carried off here in a beautifully dramatic score from Bruno Canforna – one that echoes the mix of exotic orchestrations you'd hear in the best gladiator films of the time – but with some darker rumblings as well! The scene is a bit more Eastern than most ... CD

General Music/Music Box (France), 1981. New Copy
A great little Morricone soundtrack – later than most of the classic work, but done for a French thriller that starred Jean-Paul Belmondo, with some great spare compositions that have slight romantic French soundtrack touches! There's some great numbers that feature Morricone's style of ... CD
