Alessandro AlessandroniDi Tresette Ce Ne Unto Tutti Gli Altri Son Nessuno (special edition) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $33.99
Introspective work from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – mostly a western-themed score, one that features spare tunes that focus strongly on his own ability to play guitar with a haunting, ethereal quality! A few tracks have some nice electric instrumentation submerged in the mix – creating a cool juxtaposition of wah wah or keyboards and plucked acoustic guitar – and this well-done release features a total of 25 tracks in all, on vinyl for the first time ever!

Alessandro AlessandroniI Cantori Moderni (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the coolest albums we've ever heard from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that's heavy on the vocal interplay of his I Cantori Moderni group, but which also features lots of dark musical elements as well! The blend is incredible – soaring harmonies on one hand, served up with plenty of jazz – but some cool instrumental twists and turns underneath, which often create a moody quality that really contrasts the vocals! Alessandroni's always been great – but this album takes his genius to a whole new level – with cuts that include "Verso L'Infinito", "Ciocando Con Le Note", "Valzer Del Baraccone", "Nella Balera", and "Ghen Ghen Ghe".

Stelvio CiprianiUn'Ombra Nell'Ombra (Ring Of Darkness) (180 gram vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Erotic demonic genius from Stelvio Cipriani – a slinky little soundtrack that's even more electric than some of his other 70s work! The vibe here is still very much in the best Ciprani mode of the time – often slightly funky, with undercurrents of groove that run through the tracks via electric basslines that step, dip, and turn nicely. But even better are the keyboards on the set, played mostly by Claudio Simonetti – sometimes in a spare and spooky way, but at others in a bolder style that recalls the best Italian scores by Goblin from the same stretch. There's less of the Goblin rock quality here, and more of the Ciprani sense of space – and the combination of modes makes the score an especially memorable one – served up in the usual Digitmovies high standards!

✨✧ Quincy JonesHot Rock ... LP
Prophesy, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet little soundtrack by Quincy – to an early 70s heist film that starred Robert Redford, George Segal, and Zero Mostel! The album's got a feel that's very much in the mode of Quincy's best cop show/crime work of the time – with some nice jazzy touches, handled by a host of quality players that include Jerome Richardson, Gerry Mulligan, Chuck Rainey, and Carol Caye – plus a few vocal numbers by the lovely "Tata"! The record's got some very nice instrumentals – especially the "Hot Rock Theme" – and tracks include "Talking Drums", "Slam City", "Sahara Stone", and "Miasmo". LP, Vinyl record album

Bappi Lahiri & Salma AghaKasam Paida Karnewale Ki ... LP
Far Eastern Sunshine (Germany), 1984. New Copy ... $22.99
A Bollywood soundtrack from the 80s generation – one that's got a style that definitely matches its decade! Tracks are long, upbeat, and joyous – in the best 70s Bollywood mode – but also feature more keyboards and drum machine rhythms, which creates this moodier quality in the music – a vibe that's maybe not dark in the way that Euro electro material might be, thanks to a few disco flourishes from time to time – but which definitely sets the whole thing apart from the classic Bollywood mode! The approach is great – almost a re-imagining of the Indian soundtrack ethos – on titles that include "Jeena Bhi Kya Hai Jeena (parts 1 & 2)", "Kasam Paida Karnewale Ki", "Dance Dance", and "Come Closer".

Henry ManciniCharade ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the grooviest Henry Mancini soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of jazzy themes and action moments, and a record that's possibly better-remembered than the film for which it was recorded! The main "Charade" theme is a total gem – performed here in both a guitar-heavy instrumental version and a cool vocal version with a Mancini chorus – but the other tunes are arguably even better, and range from Euro-styled numbers to Latin groovers, to some tenser dramatic moments. The recording quality is wonderful – filled with echo and space – and titles include "Orange Tamoure", "Punch & Judy", "Latin Snowfall", "Bateau Mouche", "Bistro", and "Mambo Parisienne".

Franco MicalizziItalia A Mano Armata (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
A driving Italian soundtrack from the height of the cop/crime years – done with really full arrangements by Franco Micalizzi, in a way that easily rivals some of the best American work of the genre in the 70s! Most of the orchestrations are quite bold – upbeat rhythms with basslines punching up the bottom, and horns overflowing on the top – all in a brashly brassy style that really fits the high level of action in the film! Other numbers get a bit more mellow, but not in a spooky, atonal way – more in a slightly sweet quality that almost has slight 70s erotic undertones. A few other tracks almost get clubby at points – mixing guitar, keyboards, and snapping rhythms into some great instrumental grooves that might have been right at home on the dancefloor in New York. Reissue features 20 tracks in all – including "Too Much Nosy", "Hard Falling", "The Child & The Sister", "A Dirty Trick", "The Criminal Gang", "Death In A Cave", and "Damned Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500!)

Franco MicalizziNapoli Violenta (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
A classic 70s Italian crime soundtrack – presented here in full format for the first time ever, and filled with wonderful tunes in a variety of styles! There's a quality to the music that really matches the badass image on the front – a bold, forceful approach that has the upbeat numbers strutting along with plenty of pride – and which has the mellower, more brooding tracks working themes that are simple, but which pack the same force as the revolver on the cover. Franco Micalizzi uses some great keyboards throughout – often a bit light, with a style that's sometimes veering towards electric harpsichord, but other times in a more Goblin-like mode – almost horror-styled, especially when interwoven with acoustic piano. Tunes build up with force as the soundtrack rolls on – and titles include "Rush For A Sign", "Useless Waiting", "Crime Outcome", "The Violent Face", "Fire In The Garage", "Welcome To Napoli", "Bitter Success", and the vocal number "A Man Before Your Time".

Ennio MorriconeGenti Di Rispetto ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Overlooked genius from Morricone – a mid 70s soundtrack that's filled with dark touches and some beautifully edgey scoring! Apart from a few lighter touches on mandolin, a good deal of the soundtrack features these great instrumental passages that step, halt, and almost stumble along – moving moodily with a really dark quality, yet in a way that's not nearly as atonal as some of Morricone's other scores of this nature. There's some great woodwinds, and harpsichord often seems to be used underneath the rhythms – but really buried in the mix, almost like it's being stepped on! Tracks include "Solo Per Amore", "Gente Ipocrita", "Mandolini E Chitarre", "Appendice 1", "Angoscia E Paura", and "Passeggiata A Rischio". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeSacco E Vanzetti ... LP
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An unusual period score by Ennio Morricone – and a record that turned out to be one of his most successful of the 70s! The film, as you might guess from the title, is about the famous and unjust trial of Italian-American activists Sacco & Vanzetti – and in keeping with that setting, a number of the tunes have a folksy, almost "historic" quality to them. Other tracks still have nice Morricone-esque touches – like solo electronic keyboard on one track, or a nice bit of oboe on another – and Joan Baez sings the folksy "Ballad of Sacco & Vanzetti". Titles include "Speranze Di Liberta", "Nel Carcere", "Sacco E Il Figlio", "E Dover Morire" and "Here's To You", which features some backing work by I Cantori Moderni. LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeTrio Infernal ... LP
Yuki (France), 1974. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A really sweet little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that's definitely on the romantic tip, but in a way that's still filled with some of the best notes and tones from the maestro! The score was penned for a Francis Girod film that reunited the team of Michel Piccoli and Romy Schneider – and the tunes mix airy, string-heavy numbers that glide along beautifully with a few other more quirky, playful passages that use some very weird piano! This mix of modes is really compelling, and certainly breaks the styles of more familiar Morricone soundtracks – a quality that we can really appreciate, and which has us coming back to this one again and again! Titles include "Truffa", "Acide Et Charme", "Deuxieme Danse Nuptiale", "Le Trio Infernal", and "Promenade Nocturne". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeUn Uomo Da Rispettare ... LP
CBS/Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Great work from Ennio Morricone – a moody soundtrack to an obscure 1972 thriller starring Kirk Douglas – scored by the maestro with some especially inventive touches! Morricone's exploring his use of space quite a bit in this one – opening up the sound slowly, and patiently – so that you can really hear and concentrate on all the unusual sounds he creates – some almost as experimental as his work with Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, others more in that warmly musical quality you'd know from other soundtracks. The sekectuins are filled with passages of sounds and silence that interweave into each other nicely - and the album's notable for the use of some odd noise effects, too – like strange clickings and scrapings, which are balanced with the album's moodier orchestral scoring. One of Morricone's more subtle scores, and filled with some very memorable moments – on titles that include "18 Pari", "A Florinda", "Colpo Parallelo", "Un Tempo Infinito", and "L'Incarico".

Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Blind Faith (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites – and with some bonus alternate takes! LP, Vinyl record album

Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in slightly different versions, with a style that's a bit more adult and more off-center than we remember – all sitting next to some groovy instrumental tunes score by a young Dave Grusin, and shifting the mood nicely from track to track. Titles include "Whew", "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "The Singleman Party Foxtrot", "April Come She Will", "On The Strip", "The Folks", "Mrs Robinson", and "Sounds Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

Armando TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Duse/Beat/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembered albums from the glory years of the Italian soundtracks – a sense of space, pacing, and timing that are simply breathtaking – and which are the perfect summation of Trovajoli's earlier experiments in music. As with his score to La Matriarca, the instrumentation here varies often – sometimes a bit of horns, nicely compressed; sometimes a floating harmonica line; sometimes keyboards; and sometimes a funky rhythm topped with vocals – all woven together in a rich pastiche of styles that makes the album one of the deepest soundtracks you'll hope to own from the time. LP features titles that include "Sessomatto", "Kinky Peanuts", "Two Happy People", "Palm Tree", "Viaggio Di Nozze", "Un Amore Difficile", "Searching For Something", and "Delitto Sessuale". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Sesso Matto – Original Soundtrack ... CD 16.99
