Franco BixioA Pugni Nudi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which has always got an undercurrent of funk as well – unfolding beautifully through the use of electric bass at the the bottom of most tracks, even some of the larger arrangements. Some of the best numbers have very cool keyboard or piano – ringing out with a cool compressed sound that's mighty nice – and a few cuts even have some nice funky breaks as well! Titles include "With Bare Fist", "A Fist In The Thought", "Noble Impulse", "Dog's Heart", "With Clenched Fists", and "The Hunt Down". LP, Vinyl record album
(Note: Top of cover has a very small split, about an inch – price has been discounted to reflect this.)

✨✧ Franco BixioEd Ora – Raccomanda L'Anima A Dio (with bonus track) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very early soundtrack from Italian great Franco Bixio – done when he was just a lad of 18, before his fame with Vince Tempera – but with a sound that puts the young Franco on equal footing with the best of the spaghetti western generation! The score begins with a groovy vocal tune – "Just A Coward", sung in English by Mary Ushua – then moves into the kind of material that you'd expect from the period – but sometimes inflected with instrumentation that is almost more 60s than western, especially on some of the tracks where electric guitar has a bit more prominence. The CD marks the first time that most of this material is issued commercially – an 19 track set that features two versions of "Just A Coward". CD
(Limited to 300 copies!)

VariousEsterno Notte Vol 3 – The Ultimate Italian Cinematic Prog & Urban Jazz-Funk Collection 1974 to 1979 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 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.

VariousTidbeats – Lots Of Forgotten Surplus Audio Tracks From The Vaults Of Cinevox Records ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 33.99
An amazing treasure for fans of Italian soundtrack music – the fresh discovery of rare material from the vaults of Cinevox Records – one of the most important Italian soundtrack labels of the 60s and 70s! All of the music here is previously unreleased – and runs from full songs to snippets, all laid out in this really beautiful way – so that the package is not only presenting some great grooves from Cinevox, but also tracing a history of Italian cinematic styles – moving back and forth from the 60s through the 70s, with a superb presentation that really has the music sounding tremendous in this setting! These aren't clunky discards, but really wonderful tunes – unused extra material from soundtrack giants who include Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, Riz Ortolani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Gianni Ferrio, Franco Bixio, Enrico Simonetti, and many others – laid out here in a limited package, with 161 titles in all.

✨✧ VariousSpeedball Experience – Obscure Pop Jazz From Early 70's Italian Music Library ... CD
Giaguaro/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first collections to offer up the sorts of rare gems that have made Italian sound library records so worth digging for over the years – initially a 90s package, done before there was much information provided on the studios and players, and with the kind of porno cover that was initially used to sell grooves like this to the wider global scene of funk collectors! Forget the package, though, because the cuts are what matter most – an assortment of different funky numbers that are heavy on tight drums, funky basslines, and sweet keyboards – from mysterious sound library creators who include Sandro Brugnolini, Franco Bixio, Stefano Torossi, Raskovich, and Narassa. Titles include "Polyphony", "Diamonds", "Abiente Elegante", "La Gang", "Diatomea", "Capricorno", "Sweet Beat", and "Schizzo". CD
