Ennio MorriconeQuattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio – The Four Velvet Flies (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single issued by Cinevox in 1971. The leadoff track – "4 Mosche Di Vellutto Grigio (titoli)" – is actually a bit funky, with some very heavy drums and cascading fuzzy guitar riffs that sound very nice. Then, the record moves into spookier material – like the cut "Come Un Madrigale", and a number of self-titled themes – all of which feature strange harpsichord work, dark orchestral passages, and some very spooky production work! Fortunately, the score ends on an upbeat note – a hard driving, beat group sounding version of the main theme that's a nice cap to the whole package! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition crystal clear vinyl pressing!)

Alessandro AlessandroniSpontaneous (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
Stunning rare work from Alessandro Alessandroni – a soundtrack talent who first flourished in the 60s, but really hit his stride in the sound library scene of the 70s! Alessandroni has a great way here of mixing the warm and the sweet, the funky and the melodic – tunes that are short and simple, but always pretty darn groovy – with a sweet, slinky style that's a great extension of the funkier modes of both French and Italian cinema at the start of the 70s – well-placed basslines that really set the score, peppered with just the right bits on guitar or keyboards – and never overdone, so that the grooves are spacious enough to really let you appreciate all the right touches! Titles include "Watergate", "Mitzi", "Sunny Coast", "Pure Nature", "Blue Waves", "Young America", "High Class", "Meadows", and "Life Tree". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

✨✧ Sandro BrugnoliniSuperground (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great sound library albums of the time, the music is way more than conventional – as guitar, organ, bass, and drums are arranged, recorded, and produced in very unusual ways – with a really open ear towards the fuller, larger sound – which includes great effects and other elements along the way! The whole thing's very groovy – kind of mid 60s Italian mod soundtrack styles meeting the psychedelic generation – and titles include "Kissing", "Villa Polanski", "Sharon Tate", "Hip Now", "Lovable", "Petting", "Under Funeral", and "Malattia".

✨✧ Dancefloor StompersLibrerie Musicali ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool little funky group – one that's so influenced by the sound library scene of the 70s, they even styled this album like one of those records from back in the day! The tunes are almost all instrumental – heavy on drums and funky basslines, and filled with guitar, organ, electric piano, and lots of other groovy touches – all with a very strong 70s vibe in the overall approach and production! Things are nice and simple – and these guys avoid some of the cliches of other groups who go for this territory, but maybe push too hard. Titles include "Rapina Alla Brinks", "Pop Shake Beat", "4 Dita E Una Pistola", "Country Ride & Boat Chase", "Double Pimp", "Romance", and "Armando's Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

Lallo GoriItalia – Ultimo Atto ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $36.99
A totally fantastic soundtrack from the 70s Italian scene – one that's filled with all sorts of sweet electric touches from Lallo Gori – including lots of keyboards over some pretty funky tracks! Gori did some more standard scoring in earlier years – but here, he's right up there with the best of the cop/crime generation, with music for a political thriller that must have been even better on the screen with some of Lallo's music behind it! There's a familiar groove that moves through many of the cuts – kind of this pulsating rhythm that has more bass than drums, which creates cyclical passages both in the rhythms and keyboards – sometimes topped with other cool instrumentation too. LP features 10 tracks in all – and is a sweet electric 70s gem, through and through! LP, Vinyl record album

Augusto MartelliNella Misura In Cui ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $32.99 39.99
A sweet little entry in the small Italian genre of "erotic films on island location" – served up with this fantastic blend of 70s instrumentation and older exotica percussion! The setting is the Caribbean, but that's more in fantasy than the musical styles within – as Augusto Martelli blends bass, guitar, and plenty of keyboards with rawer acoustic percussion elements that really set the scene – making for this wonderfully earthy contrast to the sweeter electric moments – at a level that must have made for plenty of unbridled and savage love on the screen! Titles include "La Seduzione", "Joining Together", "Mercato Di Portorico", "How Wonderful You Are", "Visions"- and "La Spiaggia Di Ulisse". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Luciano MicheliniMorte Sospetta Di Una Minorenne ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet electric score from Luicano Michelini – and one that we might almost point to as an early entry in the keyboard sound of Italian horror films! The style's not as proggy or rockish as Goblin – and Luciano borrows maybe a bit of funk from some of the cop/crime scene – yet the main focus is on the electric instrumentation, with lots of basslines and keyboard flights to really set the mood, often with a spare style that's much more 80s than you'd guess from the date! Some moments almost evoke a spooky church organ – but played faster, on 70s keyboards, in a way that really abstracts the horror film standard. Titles include "Death Warning", "Gettin Closer", "Blind Murder", "Too Young To Die", and "Killer Tango". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nora OrlandiA Doppia Faccia ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing work from Nora Orlandi – one of the few major female film composers on the Italian scene, and a talent that we always rank right up there with the male greats of the golden days! This set has a real Morricone-like balance of darkness and light – although the style is different than Morricone's, with maybe a more open ear for variance across the tracks in the set – even though there's a strongly unified feel to the whole thing – this beautiful journey in sound that begins with the first vocal track, ends with the last one – and moves nicely through a mix of mod groovers, creepier numbers, and both jazzy and avant moments – all arranged and conducted by Robby Poitevin, with lead piano by Nora herself! The limited vinyl reissue features two unissued tracks, plus great notes from Orlandi on the back. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gianni SafredFuturibile – The Life To Come ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1978. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really great set of Italian electronics – a set that's maybe known better to Americans than most of the generation, due to a surprising 70s release on Folkways Records! Yet this set is quite different than the more academic electronics that usually grace that label – and echo more that shift towards moogier modes that would really crest in the Italian clubs of the next decade – still here more in a sound library mode, but turned towards nice little tunes that move between spacey instrumentals and keyboard groovers! Gianni Safred plays a range of different instruments – minimoog, polymoog, Arp Odyssey, Fender Rhodes, and Roland keyboards – layering the electronics in a way that's nice and warm, and surprisingly soulful at most moments too. Tracks include "Jazz Computer", "Future City Traffic", "Electronic Brain", "Supermind", "The Life To Come", "Disco Satellite", "Autumn 2001", and "Robot Party". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Giuliano Sorgini & OthersAfrica Oscura Reloved Vol 1 ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A special set of tracks that pays tribute to the original Africa Oscura record from Italian sound library composer Giuliano Sorgini – a fantastic blend of percussion and electronics that was almost a 70s update on older exotica modes, but with a much darker vibe overall! Here, contemporary talents take the original music and mix things up a bit – often with a rhythmic vibe, but never in a mode that gets in the way of Sorgini's original genius! Vol 1 features three tracks in all – "Oasi Nella Giungla (afro temple mix)" by Pad, "Africa Oscura (drums of passion mix)" by Paine, and "Iniziazione (ritual quirky mix)" by LUCA.

Armando TrovajoliIl Vuoto ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
Early work from the tremendous Armando Trovajoli, but a set that shows that the maestro was already at the top of his game – coming off of some great experience on the Italian jazz scene of the late 50s, and able to blend that experience with more cinematic modes! The vibe here is different than the soundtrack jazz of Piero Piccioni in the early 60s – more small combo, and more in the mode of a jazz record at times – with very strong interplay between the core group of musicians, and interaction between Trovajoli's piano and the work Carlo Zoffoli on vibraphone, Gino Marinacci on baritone sax and flute, Enzo Grillini on electric guitar, Berto Pisano on double bass. The whole thing's wonderfully groovy – maybe years ahead of its time in terms of color and tone, especially for a soundtrack – and titles include "Evasione", "Etasi", and "Frenesia" – plus a number of variations on the title theme!

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo Elettronico – Cosmic Electronic Environments From An Italian Synth Music Maestro 1972 to 1983 ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from a very electric man – the mighty Piero Umiliani, an Italian composer who first rose to fame for a set of groundbreaking film scores in the 60s – then moved into even more experimental sound library work in the following decade! This set has Piero working in all sorts of cool electronic styles – never too outside or avant, but definitely in the darker side of his spectrum – although almost always with that playful sense of a tune that made his 60s music such a delight! The range of instruments varies – Umiliani clearly had a studio that was full of brand-new, top-shelf technologies – and titles are mostly from the mid 70s, with a few later cuts from 1983. Tunes include "Danza Magica", "Soundmaker Blues", "Fruitori", "Batticuore", "Sinistro Carillon", "Dolomiti", "Apocolaisse Atomica", "Description", "Lavorazione A Mare", and "Elettrone".

Piero UmilianiParanoia ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $39.99
Fantastic music from the great Piero Umiliani – one of Italy's greatest soundtrack composers, and definitely at the top of his game here! The music was recorded right around the same time as Umiliani's legendary work for Sweden Heaven & Hell – and there's a similar mix of styles going on here – a strong leadoff track with female vocals, groovy swingers with a nice degree of jazz, some excellent use of organ, and some really cool mellower numbers that have this subtle sonic power that's really wonderful – often again dosed with some nice use of organ! The score features 16 tracks in all – with subtitles that really give you an idea of the groove – including "pop jazz", "bossa", "psychedelic suspense", "samba jazz", and "jazz pour l'action".

Alberto VerrecchiaIl Tempo Degli Assassini (Season Of Assassins) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $36.99
Alberto Verrecchia wasn't the biggest name in Italian soundtracks during the 70s – but he cut some excellent material during the decade, including this gem of a session from 1975! The music has some of the usual funky modes you'd expect from the cop/crime world at the time – but there's also a nice balance, too – a great ear for some of the mellower, more spacious moments that first started showing up in Italian scores at the end of the 60s, and which make the funky moments stand out even more when in the hands of a true maestro! The whole thing's wonderful – full of sweet electric lines and really rich flavors – on titles that include "Leave It Behind", "Gang Leader", "Dancing", "Upsetting", "In The Space", "Season Of Assassins", and "Discotheque Music".

✨✧ VariousEsterno Notte Giorno D'Estate – Open Air Grooves, Daytime Breaks, Sunny & Scat Beats From The Italian Untapped Film Music Archives 1969 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian soundtrack/sound library reissue scene of the past decade or two – but instead lots of fresh tracks that really throw open the gates – with strong quality tracks that are awash in lots of groovy elements! Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title. Tracks include "Don Milani" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Cugine Mie" by Nico Fidenco, "Gideon" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Camorra" by Manuel De Sica, "Pensiero D'Amore" by Mario Migliardi, "Gisposta A Tutto" by Gianni Marchetti, "Mondo Di Notte Oggi" by Gianni Oddi Gianni Dell'Orso, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, and "Verso La Droga" by Sandro Brugnolini.

VariousEsterno Notte Vol 2 – More Jazz-Funk, Late Nite Breaks, Cinematic Prog & Psych From The Italian Untapped Film Music Archives 1968 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $39.99
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – offbeat keyboards, riffing guitars, and other instrumentation that's sometimes given these odd psychedelic touches by the studio maestros who were putting together the cuts at the time – some of which were used in obscure soundtracks, and a number of which appear here for the first time ever! This isn't the overly-familiar film music territory of other collections – and instead, most of this music is completely fresh – even for the longtime collector – presented in a great package that includes the cuts "Anastasia Mio Fratello" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, "La Mano Lunga Del Padrino" by Silvano D'Auria, "L'Arbitro" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, "La Liceale Nella Classe Dei Ripetenti" by Gianni Ferrio, "L'Altro Dio" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Giovane Clan" by Sandro Brugnolini, "La Profonda Luce Dei Sensi" by SEverino Gazzelloni, and "Calamo" by Claudio Tallino.

Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $42.99 44.99
A great entry in this very groovy series – one that shifts the title a bit from previous volumes, and which also moves the music a bit too – but all while staying pretty darn funky! The set's got much more of a 70s soundtrack vibe than some of the other entries – loads of great keyboards, heavy basslines, riffing guitar, and other elements that are often used in ways that remind us of the bigger blacksploitation and crime/cop work of the decade – but cooler, hipper, and a lot more obscure! Titles include "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Addio Ultimo Uomo" by Franco Godi, "Uragno Sulle Bermuda" by Stelvio Cipriani, "L'Occhio Dietro La Parete" by Pippo Caruso, "A Pugni Nudi" by Franco Bixio/Fabio Frizzi/Vince Tempera, "Le Evase" by Pippo Caruso, "La Sbandata" by Domenico Modugno & Gianni Oddi, "Afrika Erotika" by Alessandro Blonksteiner, "Nove Ospiti Per Un Delitto" by Carlo Savina, and "Maladolescenza" by Pippo Caruso.
