Guido & Maurizio De AngelisIl Cittadino Si Ribella (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/AMS (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
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
(Limited edition crystal clear vinyl pressing!)

Detto MarianoDelitto Al Ristorante Cinese ... LP
GDM/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99
A surprisingly nice score, done for a relatively goofy Italian comedy at the start of the 80s – set inside a Chinese restaurant in Rome, and handled with some definite Eastern touches in the instrumentation – but all mixed up in funky cop show sort of backings – almost an early 80s take on territory explored by Lalo Schifrin in Enter The Dragon! Obviously, the elements are a bit inauthentic – but given that the film's a comedy, we'll give them a pass – and note that they make a nice change from some of the more standard modes of Italian films like this of the time. The instrumentation's more 70s than you'd expect from the date of the film – and is usually somewhat warm, even when electric – and the set features a total of nine tracks from the movie – appearing here on vinyl for the first time ever.

Ennio MorriconeMilano Odia – La Polizia Non Puo Sparare (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
A beautifully sensitive Italian police soundtrack from the 70s – one scored by Ennio Morricone with a bit less of the funky bits of other cop scores of the time, and a nice mix of sad-tinged, personal styles! There's a fair bit of key Morricone touches here that resonate with his best other work of the time – spacious, almost stepping rhythms; dramatic isolated instrumentation, including a bit of off-key piano; and some warmer tones that soften some of the best moments, and keep them from being too cold or dark. The drama here is subtle, but effective – and the score's a real lost gem in the catalog of the maestro deserving wider attention! Titles include "Rapimento", "Raptus Omicida", "Milano Odia La Polizi Non Puo Sparare", and "I Conti Ora Tornano". First-ever full issue of the score – as only a few cuts were only ever issued before on a single! LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniBello, Onesto, Emigrato Australia Sposerebbe Compaesana Illibata (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99 22.98
Italy meets Australia – in a lovely set of grooves written by Piero Piccioni for this little-seen Alberto Sordi film from 1971! The sound is as sunny as you'd expect – with the Piccioni bossa groove used to set the scene for postwar Australia – sometimes coming across with lighter, livelier tones, sometimes getting a bit lusher in the more serious parts – but always coming across with a great Italian soundtrack sparkle! There's some wonderful Italian bossa bits on the set – skipping out with some snapping snare bits, topped off by warm horn passages and some great use of electric keys! Titles include "La Gita In Barca", "L'Arrivo In Citta", "I Primi Approcci", "La Delusione Di Carmela", "Shopping In Sydney", "Il Sogno Di Carmela", and "Incontro All'Aeroporto". CD features 14 bonus tracks, most of which are previously unreleased! CD

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniAddio Zio Tom – Colonna Sonora Original Del Film ... CD
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groovy little soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a set of tracks written for a controversial faux-documentary on slavery, done with better musical touches that are more in keeping with the early 70s release of the film! The movie came from the same producers as Mondo Cane – also scored by Ortolani – and the style here has the same mix of very scene-specific instrumentals that shift very much throughout the cores of the set. Some tunes are more serious, while others get a bit groovy – and one track features some electric harpsichord in a chunky, catchy little melody – and the album ends with a cool chase type theme that has vibes going fast over heavy beats and trumpet blasts! The set kicks off with the vocal number "Oh My Love", sung by Katyna Ranieri – and other titles include "Maple", "Mister Ling", "Miami", "Cadet's Waltz", "Mamie", and "Rito Di Mezzanotte". CD

✨✧ Franco MicalizziDelitto Sull'Autostrada ... LP
GDM/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great 80s soundtrack from 70s cop/crime maestro Franco Micalizzi – still going strong here in the following decade, but with a leaner, more keyboard-driven sound that matches the shift of some of his contemporaries! Franco's still got a great ear for a cool groove – and the film is also a comedy, with the great Tomas Milian in the lead – but Micalizzi still keeps most tunes moving and grooving in a funky mode, with less of the nod to comedic themes that you might find from others at the time. Basslines and keyboards rule the tunes – and the set features 9 tracks in all, presented here on record for the first time ever! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeC'Era Una Volta Il West (aka Once Upon A Time In The West) (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Ennio Morricone's most famous film scores – and certainly the one that got him recognized as a genius on a global level! The whole thing's pretty damn eerie – about as eerie as the movie, which is a real stunner – and it shifts from dark orchestral themes to sparer numbers that use guitar, banjo, and some really creepy whistling to set the mood – that landmark Morricone sense of space that really transformed film music in the 60s. Some tracks feature vocal work by I Cantorni Moderni, directed by Alessandro Alessandroni – and titles include "C'Era Una Volta Il West", "L'Ultimo Rantolo", "L'Uomo", "L'Uomo Dell'Armonica" and "L'America Di Jill".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeCitta Violenta (green vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
GDM/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lost treasure from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack written for a crime film starring Charles Bronson & Telly Savalas, and handled with all the spare subtlety of his best work! Bruno Nicolai's directing the orchestra on this one – and isolated instruments include electric harpsichord and woodwinds that drift along nicely in the tunes – mixed with some harder arrangements on a few of the album's more driving cuts. Morricone strikes a great balance here – occasionally hitting sweet notes, but then often falling into these dark depths that perfectly fit the bleak world of the film. Tracks include the lovely slow groover "Riassunto", plus the tracks "Rito Finale", "Svolta Definitiva", "Dolcemente Acre", "Norme Con Ironie", "Citta Violenta", and "Mille Volte Un Grido". LP features 5 previously unissued bonus tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeNuovo Cinema Paradiso (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/AMS (Italy), 1988. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition – on "crystal" clear vinyl!)

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Avventuriero ... LP
GDM/Goodfellas (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful score from maestro Ennio Morricone – on that's got the perfect balance of solo piano and light orchestrations that we love so much in his music! As usual with Morricone, it's not the instruments, but the way that they're presented – the sense of spaciousness in his arrangements, isolation between the sonic elements, and overall production style that makes the whole thing come together in ways that are so completely different from mainstream scoring at the time! Sure, there's a bit of sentiment, and a touch of romance – but never in the more common style of a Hollywood score, and even different than the style that Morricone would use in later decades on his hit soundtracks. A great early gem – with titles that include "L'Avventuriero Pts 1, 2 & 3", "I Rogo Della Strega", "Un Attimo Di Tenerezza", "Paura Dei Ricordi", "Tema Di Peirol", "Il Varo", and "Momenti Serini".
