Paolo VasileIl Giorno Del Cobra ... LP
Cinevox/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A killer cop/crime soundtrack from the Italian scene – recorded a bit late in comparison to some of the more famous entries, but done in a style that's very much like some of the best from the 70s! Things are nice and spare, with a bassline on many tracks that feels like a heartbeat moving a bit too fast – touched with wicked work on keyboards and guitars that carve out all these wonderful flashy bits around the edges – that way of using 70s instrumental styles that seemed to instantly evoke the bad guys – and the other guys who were always in hot pursuit! Charlie Cannon sings English language vocals on the groovy title cut, "The Day Of The Cobra" – and other titles include "Clash", "Flight", "Fear", "Suspicion", "Upstairs", "Astonishment", "Spy", and "Revenge".

✨✧ Paolo VasileControrapina ... LP
Cinevox/Cinedelic (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A cool 70s crime thriller from Italy – and one that's scored with that mode that has the 70s cop show style hitting the clubs! By that, we mean that there's some disco rhythms mixed in with funky electric jazz – all at a level that creates a record that might have as much appeal to fans of late 70s Salsoul or Prelude Records as it would to the usual sort of cinematic listener! Strings mix great with the upbeat rhythms on the tunes – and there's plenty of the sorts of keyboards and riffing guitars that you'd expect – as different themes trade off, then reemerge as the record moves on. I Nuovi Angeli sing two versions of the tune "Now", Paolo Vasile sings "The Loner", and all other tracks are instrumental – with titles that include "A Gun For Chris", "The Robbery", "The Kid", "Controrapina", and "Hey Man".
