A very nice soundtrack for this obscure film loosely based on the novel by Joyce – clearly a tough task, given the scope of the original book! Myers' score is suitably crazy – with a strange array of orchestral pieces, moving in and out in a "suite" format, and sounding a lot ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner. Shrinkwrap has a small opening.)
The slinky, sexy follow-up to the original cinema version of The Story Of O – shot in the 80s, with a musical score by Stanley Myers to match the vibe of that later decade – and served up with a few contributions from a young Hanz Zimmer as well! The shift from the 70s to the 80s is ... read moreCD
A dreamy Italian soundtrack from the 60s – lots of spare percussion, jazzy riffing, and strange melodies! The score was recorded in "full exotic stereo" – to accompany a campy Italian spy spoof of the time – but the mix of drums, vibes, and other percussion holds up ... read moreCD

Mario Nascimbene —
Psycorama ... LP Minstrel/Roundtable (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)...
Some of the moodiest, most unusual music we've ever heard from Mario Nascimbene – an artist who's maybe best known for working in the more romantic side of the spectrum, but who here is using a "mixerama" keyboard – which works a bit like the mellotron to sample elements, then ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really standout score from Oliver Nelson – a set that's got some of his groovier touches at times, but also features some pretty great straighter scoring as well! The record really shows Nelson stepping out from his older role as a strictly jazz-based arranger – and although there ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole and some light wear.)
Hard-driving spaghetti western action – a soundtrack to one of the Ringo films, penned by Morricone's right-hand man, Bruno Nicolai! The feel is relatively dramatic overall – full orchestrations, and less of the space you'd find in a Morricone western soundtrack – with lots of ... read moreCD
Some of the darkest work we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – an Italian soundtrack composer who's usually in the more groovy side of the spectrum – but who here proves that he can be as moody and offbeat as his frequent musical partner, Ennio Morricone! The tunes have some occasional ... (Sound Library, Soundtracks)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Some great piano in this early 70s soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – that Morricone-like way of hitting the keys that's off-tune and weirdly isolated in the mix! Other instrumentation includes some wonderful guitar – both acoustic and fuzzed-up electric – and Nicolai does a great ... read moreCD
(Out of print. Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – a wonderful array of lightly groovy tunes that's as fantastic as any of the Mondo Morricone work from the same time! The main theme of the film has a catchy La Donna Invisible sort of feel – building on waves of ... read moreCD
The gentle, spare soundtrack to the film "The Piano" by noted UK minimalist Michael Nyman, very much in the vein of his non-soundtrack (and other soundtrack) work. 19 titles in all, including "To The Edge Of The Earth", "A Wild & Distant Shore", "The Heart ... (Out Sound, Soundtracks)read moreCD

Really groovy sounds from two great Italian film composers of the 60s – Bruno Nicolai and Nino Olivero – both working here to create a wide assortment of different instrumental modes!

(Cover has a cutout hole and some wrinkles in the back paste-on.)
Although this one's got a striking picture of Africa on the front cover, a pretty captivating title, and an Italian name in the composer credits, it's actually a pretty straight soundtrack – mostly strings and orchestral passages, handled in the dramatic mode that Ortolani used often on some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Shrinkwrap is partially open along the cover opening.)
Beautiful sounds from Riz Ortolani – a much more serious score than some of his work in the 60s, and a set that's almost got a Morricone-like majesty at times! Orchestrations are full, but have some nicely isolated instrumentation – which crafts these melodies that are simple, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A catchy little soundtrack for this late 70s Italian sex spoof – a film in which the lead character's wife discovers his philandering, then decides to pimp him out to the neighbors! The score begins with a jaunty vocal tune – "Nun Me Scuccia" – which is then echoed in a ... read moreCD

Madron ... LP MGM, Early 70s. Near Mint- ...
Dark genius from Italian composer Riz Ortolani – very spooky sounds written for a film whose English language translation is "Don't Torture A Duckling"! Non Si Sevizia Un Paperino has these amazing string passages that really creep us out – played with razor-sharpness and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300 – on heavyweight red vinyl!)
The title alone should hip you to the fact that the score's for a spy spoof film – in this case a practically forgotten comedy starring Laurence Harvey and Lionel Jeffreys. Riz Ortolani's scoring here is pretty much in his straight soundtrack bag – with a range of styles to set the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound mono Masterworks pressing. Cover has light wear and a small stain on the back.)
A groovy little gem from Riz Ortolani! The soundtrack's got an excellent late 60s feel – with tracks that mix electric bass with sitar, flute, organ, and some fuller jazzy arrangements. There's a strong jazz component running through the mix – taking the score past some of the easier ... read moreCD

Two rare soundtrack grooves from Daniele Patucchi – both pretty darn funky!

A great one from Carlo Pes – who you might know from his work in the group I Marc 4, and who really makes things great here through a range of cool, jazzy instrumentation!

One of our favorite soundtracks of all-time!! Piero Piccioni's score for this one is an insane mix of weird grooves, crime jazz, sound effects, and some of the coolest organ riffs you'll ever hear!

Three nights of love from Piero Piccioni – scored with a sound that's right in between the jazzier styles he used in the first half of the 60s, and the groovier modes from the second half of the decade!

Il Boom ... LP CAM (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)...
Beautiful soundtrack work from Piero Piccioni – an early score, but filled with the kind of weird, offbeat sounds that have always made him a genius!

Beautiful grooves from the legendary Piero Piccioni – a set that's a great follow-up to some of his famous 60s work – touched with a few more sexy 70s touches than before, but in a way that's still extremely groovy! There's lots of electric piano lines on the set – almost a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A groovy French-Italian co-production from the 70s – one that's scored with a very whimsical score by Piero Piccioni! The record's got more of an Italian comedy feel than French work of the time – from a disco-inspired vocal theme at the start, to some sweet slinky numbers in the ... read moreCD

A nice little score from the great Piccioni – penned for a mid 60s film about a bullfighter!

The second set of tracks from the Pornosonic project – and like the first, packaged in a way that makes you think the music was lifted from an older porno soundtrack!
