✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiFemina Ridens/Sophisticated Shake ... 7-inch
CAM/Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
The great title track to one of the best scores from Italian maestro Stelvio Cipriani – a tune that bursts out with funky drums that kick into soaring orchestrations, topped by this wicked female vocal from Olympia – whose singing style is as vibrant as the instrumentation! Edda Dell'Orso sings on "Sophisticated Shake" on the flipside – but in that weird breathy style that she used with Ennio Morricone – more voice as sound than as lyrics, next to a hip-stepping bass and cool echoey piano! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiOrgasmo Nero (Sequence 1, 3, & 5) ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1980. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Three great tracks from this later soundtrack by 70s maestro Stelvio Ciprani – all of them pretty darn wonderful! The "sequence 1" variation has this slow-building mix of percussion that's nicely exotic, but touched with some of the warmth of Stelvio's more famous crime and erotic scores of years before – while the "sequence 3" and "sequence 5" variations on the flipside offer up both funkier and moodier moments too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition of 400!)

✨✧ Peppino De Luca & I Marc 4Dorian Gray – Rito A Los Angeles/Dorian Gray (shake 3) ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two of the funkiest tracks from the Italian film version of Dorian Gray – both real standouts in a store that was mostly moody and spooky overall! The movie was titled Il Dio Chaimato Dorian – and really shines with "Rito A Los Angeles", a tune with heavy romping drums and lots of cool distorted organ lines – which kind of chomp along with the groove! I Marc 4 handled all the performance for both tracks – and "Dorian Gray (shake 3)" is like one of the best bits of exotic funk from their own great records. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gianni Dell'Orso/Gianni OddiMondo Di Notte Oggi – Soul Meeting/Teenager ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1975. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99 22.99
Two fantastic tracks from this sweet Italian 70s soundtrack – both very worthy of being pressed on a funky 45! "Soul Meeting" has a strong piano line at the start, peppered with lots of funky congas – then given this sweet flute line that gets all jazzy and colorful, and really sends the tune home! "Teenager" has some great electric piano at the start – riffing right into a wah-wah-drenched rhythm that's mighty nice – as lots of jazzy horns come in and take these short funky solos over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 350 copies.)

✨✧ Nico FidencoMake Love On The Wing/Sweet Disco Funky – Emanuelle E Gli Ultimi Cannibali ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A track from one of the more savage Emmanuelle films of the 70s – and pretty darn groovy! "Make Love On The Wing" is an upbeat clubby track – lots of romping drums at the core, and vocals from Ulla Linder that have a slightly creepy take on the usual disco diva mode! The clubby vibe continues on "Sweet Disco Funky" – an upbeat instrumental from a different film – La Via Della Prostituzione – done with this fast-riffing guitar over relentless basslines – while eerie voices and snakey strings pepper the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

✨✧ Bruno LauziUn Posto Ideale Per Uccidere – Badabadaba/Incontro ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1971. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A killer cut from a rare Italian soundtrack – the mighty "Badabadaba" – a weirdly scatting vocal number that's almost in the territory of the classic "Mah Na Mah Na"! The track's got this fast-riffing acoustic guitar that really drives the rhythm – while a jazzy male lead and female accompaniment scats along in a mixture of counting and wordless vocals! "Incontro" is also nice and jazzy – a bit mellower, with sweet organ bubbling, and a great flute line in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

Mario Molina with Edda Dell'OrsoAsh/Gli Angeli Del 2000 ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99
Two of the grooviest tracks from the soundtrack to Gli Angeli Del 2000 – one of the best musical moments from Mario Molina! Edda Dell'Orso sings in the lead on "Ash" – but the tune is funky, and Edda's actually singing real lyrics – not the wordless vocalizations she usually does with Ennio Morricone! The tune's got a strutting bassline over the drums, and some mighty nice horns – and it's backed by the main theme of the soundtrack, which has a mix of groovy guitar, funky drums, and chimes that seems very inspired by the Messe Pour Le Temps Present of Pierre Henry! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Daniele PatucchiLa Dimostrazione/Elikiller ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99 20.99
Two rare soundtrack grooves from Daniele Patucchi – both pretty darn funky! "La Dimostrazione" has this great combination of funky drums and really dark piano – kind of brooding while the drums roll along – then giving way to this starker passage that has stepping strings setting up the groove over the drums! "Elikiller" is a bit more fluid and jazzy – complex, but grooving nicely – as keyboards slide in over these oddly-vamping rhythms in a really great way! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 300 copies.)

Giuliano SorginiTelecinesi (full, drums) ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99
A massive drum break track – presented here in two different versions! The full take on "Telecinesi" has spooky electronics at the start, before the drums come in and make things all hard and funky – as more electronics and keyboards move all over the top, as if the Phantom Of The Opera somehow got his hands on a moog! The "drums" version has no other instrumentation at all – just the massive drums all the way through! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

✨✧ Piero UmilianiFate Had Planned It So/Just Tell Me ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1968. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Two great vocal numbers from Piero Umiliani – the kind of strong English language tunes he used to kick off his best soundtracks of the 60s! Both of these were from the film Orgasmo – and Lydia MacDonald does a great job on "Fate Had Planned It So" – a tune that has cool organ alongside stepping basslines, in the best Umiliani way! "Just Tell Me" is a bit more upbeat and jerky – a nice mod groover with male vocals from Wess – a soul singer that we don't know at all, but who does a great socking soul job with the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record
