Alessandro AlessandroniE Il Suo Complesso ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1970s. New Copy (reissue)... About January 22, 2021 (delayed)
A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some spontaneous improvisation that only deepens their spirit and sound. The lovely Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a cool and groovy way that's almost even better than her famous soundtrack recordings. Some tracks have organ, others have acoustic piano – but the whole thing's grooving very nicely all the way through – with the kind of dreamy dreamy sound we'd rank right up there with the best coming out of Italy at the time! Titles include "Meccanico", "Primavera", "Introverso", "Bossa Italiana", "Beat For Love", "Hammurabi", and "Psichedelico". LP, Vinyl record album

Francesco De MasiLa Macchina Della Violenza (aka The Big Game) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Beat/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
An excellent 70s Italian film score – penned for a political thriller, but handled with a fair bit of sweet and lovely themes! The album's one of the best we've ever heard from Francesco De Masi, and it nicely mixes his usual strong talents for action with a bit more warmth that befits the sexier side of the Italian cinematic spectrum. Sweet strings glide in alongside tighter electric basslines on some tracks – and others feature evocative woodwind bits, haunting piano, and a few more dramatic orchestrations – all wrapped up with really lovely sound throughout, and reissued here in a wonderful new package that really fits the music! There's a few vocal tracks – "Tomorrow Is A Foreign Land" and "Time On My Hands" – sung in English by Melody – and other titles include "The Story Of A Dream", "Running Against The Time", "Cape Town Harbour", "Soldiers Aboard", "Red Clouds", "Ending A Dream", "Suspect & Love", and "You'll Kill Her".

✨✧ Brian EnoFilm Music 1976 to 2020 ... CD
Astralwerks, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Many years back, Brian Eno gave us a record called Music For Films – a set that came out during his initial run of Ambient recordings, showing us how strong his instrumental creations could be when and if applied to a cinematic mode! The tracks there were half imagined works for film – and those of us who loved Eno were always hoping that it would lead to more prominent scoring for the electrosonic genius. Turns out, that happened anyway – as this set of 17 tracks will attest – a rising Eno role in the film soundtrack world, served up on contributions from big productions and lesser-known gems. The set features work from films that include Heat, We Are As Gods, Trainspotting, Married To The Mob, Jubilee, Top Boy, Sebastiane, Hammerhead, Rams, Lovely Bones, Francis Bacon's Arena, and Cool World – a surprisingly rich array of material!

✨✧ David Lynch & Alan R SpletEraserhead – Original Soundtrack Plus ... CD
Absurda, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little album – a unique sound collage that was pretty surprising for the time, given the mainstream circulation it received on the heels of David Lynch's Eraserhead film! Side one of the record features some pretty abstract noise – almost prefacing some of the best 80s experiments from the UK scene, but mixed with odd snippets of music, including a bit of Fats Waller, which sort of humanizes the whole thing! Side 2 is even more unusual – and features the classic track "In Heaven", also known as the "Lady In The Radiator Song" – a lovely tune that's right up there with the lullaby in Rosemary's Baby. CD also features a bonus "Eraserhead Dance Mix" – cooked up by Lynch in 2002! CD

✨✧ Henry ManciniBreakfast At Tiffany's ... LP
RCA, 1961. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An enduring Mancini classic! And although it's probably best remembered for the sleepy theme "Moon River", the score's actually got some pretty fantastic groovy numbers with a very different feel. These include the lovely "Sally's Tomato", one of our fave melodies ever from Mancini, and a very catchy number. Other nice ones include "Moon River Cha Cha", "Latin Golightly", and "The Big Blow Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniParty ... LP
RCA, 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great Mancini score for one of the goofiest films of the 60s! Peter Sellers stars as the sitar-playing Indian actor Hrundi Bakshi – next to the lovely Claudine Longet, who makes one of her few film appearances – and the whole thing's set to one of the greatest scores ever by Henry Mancini! The tunes are very groovy – with a few chorus vocal numbers, and some other wonderful tracks that mix together bits of sitar, guitar, and horn blasts – creating a very lively instrumental groove. Plus, the music is played by a tight group of LA jazzmen – with Plas Johnson on tenor, Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Shelly Manne on drums – all musicians who really make things cook! Titles include instrumental and chorus versions of "Nothing To Lose", plus "Chicken Little Was Right", "Birdie Num Num", "Party Poop", "Wiggy", and "Brunette In Yellow". Swingin!

✨✧ Franco MicalizziAdolescenza Perversa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The world premiere of this sweet 70s soundtrack from Franco Micalizzi – a great batch of erotic-tinged tunes originally penned for an Italian film about teenage lust! The music has a warmly gentle quality that's similar to some of Ennio Morricone's work in this mode – tunes that alternate between soft strings, stepping instrumentation, and even bits of vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso, sounding a bit sweeter here than on some of her spookier soundtracks! The tunes float very nicely in the breeze – sometimes hanging bit a single piano note or two – sometimes getting a bit more drive from rhythms that verge on funky, but hang back just a bit. And as with any of the great Morricone scores from the time, there's a few key variations on the themes that spin out beautifully as the set rolls on – creating a great sense of sonic interplay!

Ennio MorriconeCitta Violenta (green vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
GDM/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
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 MorriconeFemale – Ennio Morricone Selected By Alessandro Casella ... LP
Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a near-naked woman on the cover, and the set's a batch of rare tunes by soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone – all from films and scores with a woman at the center! The music is a mix of some of the best slinky, sexy Morricone modes of the late 60s, with some of the moodier, spookier sounds he opened up in the 70s – and as you might expect from the setting, the lovely Edda Dell'Orso is a part of many tracks – providing wordless vocals that are really beautiful, and which have come to be one of the strongest Morricone trademarks over the years. The set features 16 tracks in all – from films that include Verushka, La Donna Invisible, Salalom, Scusi Faccio L'Amore, Le Foto Proibite, Trio Infernale, and Maddalena – all Mondo Morricone classics!

✨✧ Piero PiccioniScacco Alla Regina (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Piero Piccioni – a really Morricone-like soundtrack, and one that's filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies! There's a lightly gliding feel to the record that's really wonderful – light lines on organ, topped with wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni, alternating to suit the mood of the film, and really bringing out some of the most lovely qualities in Piccioni's music. The tunes unfold gently, like the petals of a flower in soft summer rains – and there's also an undercurrent of darkness at a few points, but one that hardly gets in the way of the breathy, bossa-styled tunes. Titles include "La Torre", "Da Soli In Vacanza", "Capriccio", "The Redcoat", "I Cavalli", and "Nero Piu Bianco". A stunning expanded package – the original album on CD1, plus 22 more bonus tracks on CD2! CD

✨✧ Berto Pisano/Franco PisanoLa Svergognata/Anima Mia ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweetly sexy soundtrack from the great Berto Pisano – one that really lives up to its image on the cover! There's a gently grooving feel to the music that's right up there with the best erotica work from Morricone – handled by Pisano with light strings, keyboards, bits of flute, and some especially nice vocals from Edda Dell'Orso, who's definitely on the warmer side of her talents with a record like this! The tunes glide along nicely, and are supported with some great artwork from the film – and titles include "Orchestra For Edda", "Piano Dreams", "Free Hammond", "Sound For A Child", and "Voice In The Night". Anima Mia is a really wonderful score from Franco Pisano – nicely sexy, with some sweet 70s touches – but a deeper style than just the usual sexploitation film! Edda Dell'Orso sings a bit, and well-crafted strings are balanced with the keyboards – painting a lovely, and very groovy picture in music – over the course of the album's 11 tracks! CD

✨✧ Jeff ResnickSAC ... LP
RIT/Outernational (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful little record, and one with a very unlikely origin story too – given that the music was originally composed to highlight the different creative departments at the Rochester Institute Of Technology in the late 70s! The music is all jazz on side one – done in this warmly groovy way that reminds us a lot of our favorite Australian jazz of the time – very illuminating, with a vivid sense of image within the music – but never in a way that's forced, stiff, or held to any sort of rigid structure. The group on that side features producer Jeff Resnick on keyboards, plus great trumpet from a young Jeff Tyzik, piano from Sonny Kompanek, and tenor and flute from Ramon Ricker. Side two is a bit more electric – with a mix of different keyboards from Resnick, who also dubs over some soprano and alto recorders, and makes a bit of space for some especially lovely work on flute and saxes from Dick Griffo – all with a style that echoes side one, but with more emphasis on keyboards. The whole thing's pretty darn great – with a sound that's even more vivid than its lost history! (Jazz, Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album

Carlo SavinaPerversione/Stress ... CD
Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
Two 70s scores from Carlo Savina – both sounding wonderful here together! Perversione is a masterpiece of subtle grooves and sensual moments – handled with a touch of light strings, and plenty of tinkling piano lines that are spacious and sexy, and recorded with just the right sort of warmth to sparkle amidst the mature modes of the score. The approach is a bit like spacious Morricone at his best, but with maybe less darkness overall – and the lovely Edda Dell'Orso contributes wordless vocals at a few key points too! Those great vocals show up again on the score for Stress – a different movie overall, but one that's handled by Savina with a great 70s approach – maybe some of the bossa-inspired currents that would show up in Italian cinema of the previous decade, but tinged with some darker moments, and passages of mature musical sexuality. The CD's a gem through and through – with a total of 29 tracks in all! CD

Decca, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty straight stuff – the dramatic score to Douglas Sirk's version of Imitiation of Life, written by Frank Skinner, and performed here by Joseph Gershenson at the head of the Universal International Orchestra. The album includes the vocal tracks "Imitiation Of Life" by Earl Grant and "Soon I Will Be Done With The Trouble Of The World" by Lillian Hayman – and the instrumental tunes "Break Up", "Rejected", "Disappointed", "Lovely", and "Secrets". Nice shot of Lana Turner on the cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHotwax Presents Kayokyoku Bangaichi – Actress Collection Of Toho Records Vol 1 – Furyosyonen Sasurai (Punk Boy) ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
Haunting Japanese pop from the early 70s – sung by actress Furyosyonen Sasurai, in a beautifully-presented package of her work for Toho Records! Lyrics are all in Japanese, but there's an appeal to this music that goes way beyond the boundaries of language – thanks to some great arrangements that echo the slinkier female pop styles of the European scene of the period – and an overall level of presentation that has Sasurai's voice sneaking in with all the sexiness you might guess from the cover. As with other Hotwax CD reissues, the presentation here is wonderful – lots of lovely images, and enough visual eye candy to offset the all-Japanese song titles and liner notes. CD
