Claudio GizziFlesh For Frankenstein (mixed colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99
An x-rated horror film from the team of Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey, but one that gets a surprisingly classic sort of soundtrack from the great Claudio Gizzi! Right from the start, Gizzi's music is filled with a sensitivity that's quite striking – this beautiful, poetic quality that often comes from stark woodwind passages that are interspersed with darker strings, or some oddly-tuned piano – creating a sonic pastiche that's almost narrative enough on its own, away from the film – and which definitely stands strongly on its own, maybe even more so than its use in the movie. This deluxe 2LP package features a huge amount of tracks – 35 in all – with titles that include "Frankenstein's Theme", "Castle Gardens", "Secret Passage", "Experiments In Laboratory", "Death Of The Baron", "Dream Is Over", and "Love & Death". LP, Vinyl record album

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (40th anniversary set – 3CDs/10" LP/shirt/poster) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $52.99
A gorgeous tribute to this classic Italian horror film – one that includes the 2CD soundtrack reissue, the musical version on CD, and a 10" piece of vinyl – all in a box with a movie poster and exclusive t-shirt too! The 2CD release features one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows". Newly expanded 2CD version features a full bonus disc of alternate takes from the film – 29 more tracks that feature film versions, jazz versions, source music, and lots lots more! Package also contains the CD for Profondo Rosso Il Musical – a stage show based on the 70s horror film of the same name, and features music by the legendary Claudio Simonetti! Some tracks have all the best tones of the 70s – long, spare lines on bass and keyboards – very spacious and very hypnotic, and filled with dark twists and turns. Others are vocal numbers with a slightly more tuneful feel – driven by the lyrics, which themselves have a slightly eerie quality – almost like a bunch of zombies risen from the dead, setting out to make their own show. The whole thing almost feels like a Simpsons parody at times – but in a good way – and titles include "Io E Te", "L'Amore E La Morte", "Sangue Sangue", "Melpomene", "Lo Specchio", "Horror Tip Tap", and "Al Grand Guignol". 10" LP features new versions of original soundtrack numbers – from Claudio Simonetti's revived version of Goblin!

Antonio Carlos Jobim/DeodatoAdventurers ... LP
Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good ... $6.99
Antonio Carlos Jobim composed most of the tracks for this trashy film based on a Harold Robbin's novel of the same name, and the music's a bit different from his usual bossa work. The tunes are a mixture of orchestral tunes with a few sparer bossa numbers – a bit in the mode of Jobim's work for CTI at the end of the 60s, with slight touches of electricity in the rhythms that give the work a more soulful quality than you might expect. Deodato conducted the music, and he also contributes two compositions to the score – and tracks include "Dax Rides", "Rome Montage", "Corteguay", and "The Long Trek". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and light wear.)

Ennio MorriconeHumanoid (aka L'Umanoide) (transparent blue vinyl) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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, fitting for the movie's sci-fi story – mixed with a few others that are more atmospheric, and with more familiar Morricone elements at play. Overall, the whole thing's pretty great – and the sound is really more early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the movie – no clunky 80s keyboards, and still more 70s analogue elements that have a nice degree of warmth, even when they're trying to sound a bit cold. Titles include "Estasi Stellare", "Un Uomo Nello Spazio", "Robodog", "Incontri A Sei", "Informale Primo", "Infanzia Evoluzione E Ritorno", and "Trasmissione Difettosa Rotazione E Rivoluzione".

Ennio MorriconeIl Maestro E Margherita (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $26.99
A beautifully mellow soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – and in ways that are a bit different than some of his more familiar scores from the time! The instrumentation here is heavy on strings, often with lighter woodwinds in the front – and all tunes have a slow-building melody that's really lovely – somewhat sweeter than the usual Morricone instrumental, but still with a haunting quality overall. Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on half of the album's tracks – further helping develop this compelling little tune – and the whole thing moves along at a pace that's even gentler than La Donna Invisible! Titles include "Incontro", "Titoli E Finale", and nine variations on "Il Maestro E Margherita". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeLink (aka Extrasensorial) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 36.98
A rarer soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done in the early 80s, but with a definitely reminiscient of some of his eerier grooves of the 70s! The Link (aka Extrasensorial) is a spooky little horror film – and one that's served up here in some equally dark instrumentation – but which sometimes has that redemptive quality that we love in some of Morricone's best work from the time. There's some great watery arrangements on a few tracks – drifting out isolated instrumentation through larger backings in a really brilliant way – and titles include "Through His Eyes", "Video Telepathy", "The Link", "Mirror", and "Sinister".
