✨✧ Ennio MorriconeBird With The Crystal Plumage (aka L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo) (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Death Waltz, 1969. New Copy ... On October 22, 2021
A legendary score by Il Maestro from 1969, and the kind of work that shows the influence he had on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds that feel almost electronic at times. The whole thing's a work of incredibly subtle beauty, with a style and feeling that will seep into your brain and haunt you for days. If you've cut your teeth getting into Italian soundtracks through the "Easy" series – check this one out, and move up to a more sophisticated (yet still pretty darn groovy) level. Titles include "Theme", "Theme For Julia", "The Breath Of Death", "Mad Montage", "Black Glove Underground", "Agony Or Ecstasy", and "Objets D'Art". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiMark Il Poliziotto (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Funky Cipriani – and one of the best 70s soundtracks by the amazing Italian composer! The score is for a mid 70s cop film, and it's got a sound that blows away even most American funky cop soundtracks – using wah wah guitar to the Nth degree, in order to super-charge the massively funky rhythms on the set – and somehow managing to produce the other instruments in the set with this weird echo that sort of makes them jump between the speakers! There's incredible off-kilter piano, lots of spacey horns, and even a bit of electric harpsichord, which really sounds amazing. As funky as it is brilliant, and filled with amazing tracks that really blow us away – titles that include "Mark Il Poliziotto", "La Fine Di Cobb", "Lei E La Madre", "Bambole Di Droga", "Mercato", "Kruber Il Tedesco", "Tenerezza", and "Porte Chiuse".

Guido & Maurizio De AngelisIl Cittadino Si Ribella (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/AMS (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A nice bit of funky crime work from Italy – a soundtrack to an obscure payback film from the 70s, done here with a nice mix of heavy beats, tight guitar, and some cool keyboards! The groove here is very much in the style of some of the best compilations of Italian cop soundtrack work we've stocked – and unlike some other thrillers of the time, the set's overflowing with funky tracks, so that you get way more than just a few funky numbers for your money! The blazing image on the cover is a great idea of what you'll hear inside – and titles include "Drivin All Around", "Goodbye My Friend", and "Il Cittadino Si Rebella". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GoblinLa Via Della Droga (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very rare material from the legendary Goblin – originally written for an Italian cop thriller in 1977! The music ranks with some of the group's best thriller work – with many funky rock passages, plenty of nice keyboards, and lots of fuzzy guitar – but there's also a unique quality that really makes the record stand out, too – maybe some more sensitive passages that have slight Latin touches in the rhythms, and a wider sense of style than just the group's usual jamming – a very hip sound that links this one more to the bigger Italian cop/crime of the period, than some of the other Goblin horror material! In fact, we might well say that this is one of our favorite Goblin records – and one of the funkiest too. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bernard HerrmannFilm Scores On Phase 4 (7CD set) ... CD
Phase 4/Decca, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful package – one that presents the famous film composer in one of his best recording settings of all time! Bernard Herrmann is a legend for soundtrack work in two different generations – the postwar years, when he scored some of the most important films by Alfred Hitchcock – and the 70s, when he returned to greatness with scores for Martin Scorcese, and other directors. Yet the work here is pretty darn wonderful too – kind of a bookmark between the two generations, as Herrmann was working with the British Phase 4 label – known for their tremendous studio abilities, and crystal clear sound that was years ahead of its time! The first six albums in the set are all compilations – in which Herrmann offers up his own arrangements and re-recordings of both his own work, and titles by others – on albums that include The Great Movie Thrillers, Music From Great Film Classics, The Fantasy Film World Of Bernard Herrmann, Music From Great Shakespearean Films, The Mysterious Film World Of Bernard Herrmann, and Great British Film Music. The set finishes with a final original score by Herrmann – his striking music for the Brian DePalma film Obsession – part of his return to greatness in the 70s! CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGood, The Bad, And The Ugly – Original Soundtrack (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "Insequimento", "Il Deserto", "Il Bandito Monco", "Fine Di Una Spia", "Marcetta", "Padre Ramirez", and "La Carrozza Dei Fantasmi". LP, Vinyl record album

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
