Ennio MorriconeBird With The Crystal Plumage (aka L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo) (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Death Waltz, 1969. New Copy 2LP ... $41.99 53.98
A key moment of genius from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a set that marked a huge step forward for his music – at a level that would have a huge influence on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds – almost with an electronic vibe at times, but one that just comes from Morricone's amazing understanding of sonic possibilities – so that he can take familiar elements, and use them in very different ways to create a stunning sonic journey throughout the record. 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 – groovy and dark at the same time, with that balance that can make Morricone so special. Titles include "Piume De Cristallo", "Corsa Sui Tetti", "Se Sei Stonato", "Violenza Inattesa", and "Silenzio Nel Caos". LP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing 2LP pressing – with a total of 20 cuts in all, clear vinyl, heavy cover, and obi!)

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiMark Il Poliziotto (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 39.99
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

✨✧ Aretha FranklinSparkle – Music from the Original Motion Picture (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A classic 70s soul soundtrack – and a dream of a combination! Curtis Mayfield wrote the soundtrack and produced the album – and the result is a killer batch of 70s soul tracks that matches Aretha's strong vocals with the hip Curtom sound of Chicago! Aretha was still doing pretty well at this point, but the album really gave her a push – and the super-hip setting let her record some of her best work of the 70s. If you own only one Aretha Franklin album from the 70s, it should probably be this one – as the mixture of soul, funk, and soundtrack grooves is great, and a refreshing change from some of the cliches that could show up on other records. Features the sublime "Something He Can Feel", plus "Loving You Baby", "Look Into Your Heart", "Sparkle", and Jump". (Soul, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GoblinLa Via Della Droga (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
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 MorriconeFor A Few Dollars More (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An archetypal record all the way through – with some of the best Morricone western styles from the period – and still one of the greatest in its genre! To match the darkness of the film, Morricone's working here in a spare, stark mode – using bits of guitar and whistling to state the themes of the tunes in a simple, yet dramatic way. The legendary Alessandro Alessandroni handles both of these aspects of the record – as well as the I Cantori Moderni choir which sings on a few numbers too. Edda Dell'Orso lends her haunting, wordless vocal, too – and the titles include "Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu","La Resa Dei Conti", "Psserviatori Osservati", "Il Corpo", "Poker D'Assi", "Carillon", "Addio Colonnello" and Il Visio Di Uccidere".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGiu La Testa (Duck You Sucker) (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 36.99
A fantastically beautiful record – easily one of Ennio Morricone's dreamiest scores of the 70s! Although the film itself is a western, Morricone's soundtrack is far different than usual – with hardly any traditional western themes at all, and mostly just music that's in that mellow, floating, dream-like style that's been so heavily represented in recent years by the Mondo Morricone series! Strange voices interweave with plucked instrumental passages, all underpinned by warm haunting washes of sound that carry the music on beautifully airy waves! Titles include "Giu La Testa", "Amore", "Mesa Verde", "Rivoluzione Contro", "Dopop L'Esplosione", "Scherzi A Parte", and "Invenzione Per John". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGood, The Bad, And The Ugly – Original Soundtrack (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $29.99 39.99
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 MorriconeNuovo Cinema Paradiso (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/AMS (Italy), 1988. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 39.99
A famous later moment from the great Ennio Morricone – a score that's almost as famous as the film for which it was written – and music that's as filled with a sense of timelessness and sentiment! The orchestrations are lush, but never overtone – and the strings are beautifully punctuated by piano lines, acoustic guitar, and haunting woodwind solos – very evocative, in the best slow-building Morricone way! Titles include the classic title theme – plus "Maturita", "Infanzia E Maturita", "Prima Gioventu", "Fuga, Ricerca E Ritorno", "DalSex Appeal Al Primo Fellini", "Toto E Alfredo", and "Per Elena".

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

✨✧ Piero Umiliani5 Bambole Per La Luna D'Agosto (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $29.99 39.99
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines to set the rhythms, and scatting lyrics from I Cantori Moderni – a group who make the act of counting to 5 sound incredibly cool! The feel is quite similar to Umiliani's sublime Sweden Heaven & Hell soundtrack (and at one point, you even can hear the guy with the funny voice from "Mah Na Mah Na") – and the music is exactly the kind of wonderful stuff that first got us digging Italian film scores so many years ago. Titles include a few versions of the main theme, plus "Luna Di Piero Agosto", "Bambola Omicida", "Interludio Azzurro", "Cinque Bambole", and "Danza Jazz Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
