Ennio MorriconeDrammi Gotici (limited colored vinyl) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
GDM/Rustblade (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Chilling Late 70s soundtrack work from maestro Morricone – his score for the 1977 Italian television series Drammi Gotici – and certainly appropriate sounds for a gothic drama! The material has lots of tense strings, eerie chiming sounds, sparer moments and classical flourishes. Viola by Dino Asciolla and the voice of Edda Dell'Orso bring on the mood – dark, atmospheric and also oddly beautiful supernatural styled soundscapes from Ennio Morricone! Titles include "La Casa Della Streghe", "Drammi Gotici", "Ma Non E' Un Vampiro", "Kaiserstrasse", "Diario Di Un Pazzo" and many more. LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeDuello Nel Texas ... LP
Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A sweet early western soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – scored with a bit more drama in later years, but already showing a magical sense of space and sound! The record begins with the excellent "A Gringo Like Me" – a totally catchy English language vocal number sung by Peter Tevis, and reprised later by Daicky Jones – then rolls into an all-instrumental batch of tracks that moves between a few period pieces and some other hipper styles – including a bit of jazz at times that feels a lot more crime than western! Reissue features a total of 20 tracks in all – including two versions of "A Gringo Like Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeForza G (G-Force) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic album from Italian soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – done for a film titled G-Force, and which deals with jet pilots – but one that moves at a much slinkier pace overall! The tunes here bubble and brew in that early 70s Morricone warmth that we love so much – not the tension of his horror soundtracks, but instead the spacious sounds that he opened on some of his more majestic mondo scores of the time – delivered here with very light strings, floating woodwinds, isolated instrumentation, and slow-stepping piano lines that are really beautiful! The complete charm here is the way in which Morricone can make the music still sound so striking – very different than more common sleepy or romantic modes that are usually at this pace – and instead completely rapturous throughout. There's lots of warm and subtle passages on the album – gently swelling as the tracks move on, occasionally giving way to jazzier numbers, but always retaining the charm of mellow Morricone. Titles include a number of tunes called "Forza G" and "Sospesi Fra Le Nuvole" – and this reissue features new remastering, and a total of 16 tracks in all – including the added "Sospesi Fra Le Nuvole".

Ennio MorriconeI Crudeli ... LP
Bella Casa (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $24.99 28.99
A really wonderful western soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – done at a level that's a bit different than the usual style for the time – with more of some of the elements that the maestro might bring to later horror material! The main theme is wonderful – with a snapping snare and haunting trumpet part – but then later tracks have a more brooding sense of tension – sometimes abstracting off the main theme in a very spacious way, sometimes working with oddly tuned strings, and that great Morricone way of isolating and abstracting a single instrument – so that the original sound is quite obscured, leaving the listener to reach with their ears with a great sense of curiosity! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "I Crudeli", "La Congiura", "Dopo La Congiura", "Un Momento", and "Minacciosamente Lontano". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeIl Gatto ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
Groovy Morricone! This excellent lost score from the mid 70s features some essential tracks for fans of Il Maestro's groovier sounds – as it's filled with nice slightly funky tracks, lots of groovy keyboards and organ, and some other excellent little tracks that have a nice bossa nova groove. This is a great place to start if you're less interested in some of Morricone's darker moments – and if you dig your Italian soundtracks on the easy/groovy side. Titles include "L'Attico Illuminato", "Gli Scatenati", "Terrazza", "Mariangela E La Seduzione", and "Samba In Tribunale". Also includes some great variations on the "Il Gatto" theme, which are more orchestral, but still nice and lovely! 15 cuts in all – with notes, pictures, and unreleased material! CD

Ennio MorriconeIl Prefetto Di Ferro (picture disc) ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music! Il Prefetto Di Ferro has a core sound that's very much in keeping with Morricone's approach to crime and cop films – a bit warmer and funkier at times than his horror scores, but also touched here with some slight Mediterranean moments on guitar or flute – little "Sicilian" touches to set the mood of the film, in a way that also creates some nicely exotic touches. The record features some vocals and guitar from Rosa Balestrieri – a new collaborator for Morricone – and titles include "La Mafia", "Omerta", "Canto Di Sicilia", "Siccita", "Morte Di Ferrarello", and "Una Rete Di Protezioni".

Ennio MorriconeL'Alibi (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An overlooked Morricone score – one that contains some of his coolest themes! The soundtrack was written for an obscure 1968 thriller starring Vittorio Gassman – and the overall approach has some wonderfully imaginative orchestrations – dark at times, but lightly floating with some really catchy tunes at others! Includes a male vocal version of "Canzone Della Liberta", the classic "Belinda May", and other tracks that include "Pennellate", "Una Fotografia", "Recitazione Corale", "Lo Libero", "Sognando", and "Immagini Del Tempo". This expanded LP reissue features a whopping 27 tracks in all – including some great alternate takes and other unusual versions! LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeLe Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene (picture disc) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a real standard-setting record that's one of the top choices we go to again and again to illustrate the genius of his music! The score is a fantastic mix of the two best sides of Morricone's work – the kind of light, lilting melodies that are schooled in bossa, but turned loose on their own devices – and the darker, more atonal passages that would come to play more strongly during the 70s. The light wins over the darkness in most of the record – especially the tracks that feature the sublime wordless vocals of Edda Dell'Orso, which swell and fall with the movement of the strings and keyboards. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Le Foto Proibite", "Nel Vuoto", "Intermezzino Pop", "Amor Come Dolore", and "Quelle Foto". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeL'Umanoide ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1979. Used ... $18.99
A weird later Ennio Morricone soundtrack – and one with some surprising use of electronics and keyboards too! The maestro has used electric instrumentation on other scores, but this one has a pretty different feel – a handful of tracks that have more of a future-sounding quality, fitting for the movie's sci-fi story – mixed with a few others that are more atmospheric, and with more familiar Morricone elements at play. Overall, the whole thing's pretty great – and the sound is really more early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the movie – no clunky 80s keyboards, and still more 70s analogue elements that have a nice degree of warmth, even when they're trying to sound a bit cold. Titles include "Estasi Stellare", "Un Uomo Nello Spazio", "Robodog", "Incontri A Sei", "Informale Primo", "Infanzia Evoluzione E Ritorno", and "Trasmissione Difettosa Rotazione E Rivoluzione". CD

Ennio MorriconeMercenary (aka Mercenario) ... LP
United Artists (Germany), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A lesser-known Morricone soundtrack – written for this obscure western film! A number of tunes have that spooky "whistler" style of writing that we love from Morricone – spare whistling over darker orchestrations – in ways that create some spare and wonderful passages that are especially wonderful! Other tracks are a bit fuller, and more dramatic – the bolder western modes of the 60s – and the set also features two vocal numbers, sung by I Cantori Moderni. Titles include "Curl", "Freedom", "Mexican Dream", "Vivacious Bamba", "Ecstasy Of Violence", and "Sand Or Arena". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeMon Nom Est Personne (aka Il Mio Nome E Nessuno/My Name Is Nobody) ... LP
General Music (France), 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Very strange Morricone score to this even stranger western from the early 70s! Sure, the core of the material is 70s spaghetti scoring, but the instrumentation is incredibly weird – and includes "squishy" electric keyboards, rolling vocal choruses, whistles, clock ticking, and more! There's an incredible amount of humor here, and the soundtrack stands as one of Morricone's more mad moments from a time when he was otherwise fairly subtle in his writing. Bruno Nicolai conducted the work, and titles include "My Name Is Nobody", "Nobody is Faster", "Wild Bunch", "Observations", "Ballet of The Mirror", and "A Close Shave". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeMy Dear Killer (Mio Caro Assassino) (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Death Waltz (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 35.99
Spooky Morricone galore – a really haunting little soundtrack that seems to take up where Rosemary's Baby left off! The great Edda Dell'Orso makes lots of appearances here – singing wordlessly, but in a way that's a lot darker than some of her other work of the period – almost fragile, and tentative at times – which makes the music even more haunting than usual, especially when combined with Morricone's oddly tuned instruments, and very tense, very spare approach to sound. There's a dreamy quality to some of the songs at times, but always with an undercurrent of darkness that makes this one especially eerie – and that's saying a lot, given the quality of some of the maestro's other early 70s giallo scores! Titles include "Mio Caro Assassino", "Il Buio Tanta Paura", "Sogno Interrotto", "Non Puo Essere Vero", and "Voce Affogata". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest Ennio Morricone dramatic scores of the 70s – composed for Bernardo Bertolucci's epic film Novocento, and featuring some of Morricone's best serious scoring at the time! The work's got a sense of majesty and authority that befits the historical setting of the film – not nearly as groovy as some of Morricone's other work from the decade, but equally great in its own way. CD features 16 tracks in all – and titles include "Romanzo", "Estate 1908", "Regalo Di Nozze", "La Polenta", "Tema Di Ada", "Verdi E Morto", "Il Quarto Stato", and "Olmo E Alfredo". CD

Ennio MorriconeSacco E Vanzetti ... LP
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An unusual period score by Ennio Morricone – and a record that turned out to be one of his most successful of the 70s! The film, as you might guess from the title, is about the famous and unjust trial of Italian-American activists Sacco & Vanzetti – and in keeping with that setting, a number of the tunes have a folksy, almost "historic" quality to them. Other tracks still have nice Morricone-esque touches – like solo electronic keyboard on one track, or a nice bit of oboe on another – and Joan Baez sings the folksy "Ballad of Sacco & Vanzetti". Titles include "Speranze Di Liberta", "Nel Carcere", "Sacco E Il Figlio", "E Dover Morire" and "Here's To You", which features some backing work by I Cantori Moderni. LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeSpasmo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tiger Bay (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
Sweetness and darkness – perfectly blended together in this classic mid 70s soundtrack by Ennio Morricone! The main theme of the film – "Bambole" – is one of those Mondo Morricone type numbers that floats along on a gossamy sheen – vocals gliding softly over light woodwinds, stepping rhythms, and a bit of electric harpsichord – all used gently, but beautifully to create a wonderfully groovy little tune. But other numbers on the album are much more tense – strings drawn tighter, and sometimes into more atonal passages – and offset by descending woodwind passages that further underscore the melancholy of the film! Additional instrumentation includes some abstracted and slightly fuzzy guitar – and the whole album beautifully blends the sweet and dark tracks together with a great sense of pacing. Titles include "Bambole", in a number of variations – plus variations on "Spasmo" and "Stress Infinito". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeUn Esercito Di 5 Uomini (colored vinyl) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Ariete/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Brilliant Morricone material from the end of the 60s – penned for a film that took up the same "gang of guys" mode used in The Dirty Dozen or Magnificent Seven! As usually with the maestro at this point in his career, the soundtrack is it's own very special thing – away from the film, the story, and the stars – some really wonderful music, filled with haunting themes, odd instrumental inventions, and a balance between dark and light that always keeps us on edge! There's some very odd tunings here, but never in an atonal way – and there's some beautifully redemptive passages on woodwinds conducted by Bruno Nicolai – sliding out from the strings to really make them stand out. Franco De Gemini plays a bit of harmonica on the tracks, and titles include "Muerte Donde Vas", "Cinque Amici Cinque Eroi", "I Bambini E I Fiori", and "Contro Il Tempo". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeVeruschka (picture disc) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" theme is one of his most beautiful – a variation of female vocals with a gentle edge, in the tradition of classic soundtracks like La Donna Invisible or Le Photo Proibite. This theme shifts from mood to mood over the course of the LP, occasionally giving way to some more atonal passages and other more jazz-based tunes – more of which are included here than on the original release, thanks to an expanded reissue! Titles include a number of takes on the "Verushka" theme, plus "Astratto", "La Bambola", "Le Fotografie", "La Spiaggia", and "Dopo L'Intervista". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone/Andrea GuerraLa Domenica Specialmente ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1991. New Copy ... $11.99
A film divided up into four different parts – three of which receive some great scoring from Ennio Morricone! The music is a bit overlooked in the Morricone canon – but stands out with some of the stronger elements he brought to his music of the period – especially that understated way of using larger arrangements in more compressed qualities, often hovering below a sonic range in some spots – but augmented by stronger flourishes in others! One big highlight is the 34 minute "I Cane Blue" suite – alongside shorter tracks that include "La Neve Sul Fuocco", "Specialmente La Fisarmonica", and "La Domenica Specialmente". Andrea Guerra scored the remaining tracks, which are from the fourth section of the film – and these have a moody vibe that's not unlike Morricone – with titles that include "Le Chiese Di Legno" and "I Tamburi Della Luna".

Ennio Morricone/Bruno NicolaiQuando Le Donne Avevano La Coda/Quando Le Donne Persero La Coda ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1970/1972. Used ... $24.99
Soundtracks for 2 very weird movies – both essentially caveman comedies from Italy, with a campy sex comedy sort of feel! The score to the first was written by Morricone, the score to the second by Bruno Nicolai – and they both were conducted by Nicolai. The first soundtrack features some great work by I Cantori Moderni, the vocal group led by Alessandro Alessandroni, who sung on the soundtrack to 7 Golden Men, and other hip Italian films! Given the prehistoric setting of the films, the soundtracks are surprisingly groovy – very much in a late 60s mode, with some bossa groovers, some cool electric instrumentation, and lots of silly and playful melodies that still know how to groove! Titles include "Can Can Delle Filly", "Quando Le Donne Avevano La Coda", "Preludia Alla Gioia", "Marcetta Dei Sette", and "Miss Katorcia". CD

Ennio Morricone/Gruppo Improvvisazione NuovaGli Occhi Freddi Della Paura (aka Cold Eyes Of Fear) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tiger Bay (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A dark and extremely avant garde soundtrack from the great Ennio Morricone – one that's done in collaboration with his own Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an ensemble with roots in film scoring, but expressions that are more in the mode of 20th century avant! The music is a blend of free improvisation and more straight ahead jazz – with electric guitar, trumpet, violin, and percussion mixed with lots of weird effects and electronics – much more experimental than some of Morricone's more famous soundtracks of the time, and given a nice sense of direction from conductor Bruno Nicolai. The whole thing's incredibly spooky – one of the most turgid scores we've ever heard from the pen of Morricone – and the titles include "Sequita", "Evaporazione", "Dal Sogno E Ritorno", "Folle Folle", and "Notte E Misteri".

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!

United Artists, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 "The Sundown", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "Marcia", "The Desert", "The Strong", and "The Trio". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too! So it's only fitting that this time around, the pair are finally brought together fully – as Morricone turns out one of his best soundtracks in years for Tarantino's Hateful Eight – a brooding, suspenseful tale that owes plenty to the western generation that first sprung Morricone to global fame! Yet as with most of Ennio's best work, the style here is something that goes far beyond expectation – orchestrations that take on a style completely their own – with instrumental elements that have stronger focus amidst the larger charts, and a sense of mood and color here that's completely sublime. The record is mostly music from Morricone – written for the film – and features a few passages of dialogue from the movie, plus just a few additional tracks by The White Stripes, Roy Orbison, and David Hess. Yet it's more than fair to think of this as a complete score by Morricone – very different than the usual compilation-style soundtracks we've had before from Tarantino. LP, Vinyl record album

A surprisingly obscure soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially given that it was recorded at a time that's been quite well documented on record over the years! Yet the music here is also a bit different than the usual Morricone modes – just a handful of tracks, but longer too – penned by the maestro, conducted by Bruno Nicolai, and featuring some superb tenor solos by Gato Barbieri – very young at this point, and blowing with a soulfully modern edge that's wonderful, and completely evocative! Two tracks are especially long – both versions of "L'Harem Primo", with excellent work by Barbieri – and other titles include two takes on "Sei Corde", plus "L'Harem Secondo", with another great solo! CD also features an unusual bonus track – "Fermateli (boutique scene source music)" – from the film Menage All'Italiana – appearing here, we think, for the first time. A very groovy number! CD

Think that Ennio Morricone only made music for soundtracks? Guess again – because this groovy little set features a whole host of tracks that the maestro recorded with singers in the early 60s – great postwar pop numbers that already show his creative touch on the charts! Most of the music here is a bit more straightforward than Morricone's later soundtrack material, but still pretty darn sublime – Italian vocals, cool instrumentation, and lots of sweet production techniques that bring in moody, echoey, and mellow touches that definitely let you know you're in the hands of Ennio. Titles include "Corri Corri" by Gianni Morandi, "La Tua Stagione" by Tony Del Mnaco, "Queelo Che Conta" by La Cuccagna, "Faccio Finta Di Dormire" by Edoardo Vianello, "Se Fatto Tardi" by Helen Merrill, "La Donna Che Vale" by Alberto Lionello, "Arianna" by Nora Orlandi, and "Perdono" by Catherine Spaak.

A very spooky score for this film that's also known in America as "The Cat With Nine Tails" – the second collaboration between Ennio Morricone and noted horror director Dario Argento! The album's a bit different than some of Morricone's other work on horror films – and at times, it almost has qualities that sound more like a western – a spacious mix of light strings and more sparely focused instrumentation – sometimes a bassline, sometimes a bit of flute. Other numbers get a bit more dark and jagged – slightly atonal, with shimmering, shifting styles that create a tremendous amount of tension! Titles include "Paranoia Prima", "1970", "Sottintesi", "Ninna Nanna In Blu", "Placcaggio", and "Metafora Finale".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIndagine Su Un Cittadino Al Di Sopra Di Ogni Sospetto (gold & black mixed colored vinyl) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Stunningly beautiful work from Ennio Morricone – a haunting set of themes played on vibes, off-key piano, plucked strings, and some very odd-sounding instrument that keeps going "boing!" The music has that dreamy, lilting, minimally melodic style that makes so many other Morricone scores from this time so great – with the sort of downturning chord progressions that you'll also find in other classics like La Donna Invisible or The Burglars. The overall sound is amazing – with elements that step together beautifully in stark contrast – really showing Morricone's growing sense of space and timing at this stretch in his career.

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeLa Moglie Piu Bella ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This Morricone soundtrack features some of the strangest instrumentation we've ever heard him use – and some of the most beautiful, too! The orchestrations are pretty heavy with some wild use of a mouth harp – not making slow quiet noises, as in some of the bigger westerns, but just going crazy, and making bigger, springy noises! These are juxtaposed with haunting, dark moody instrumental passages, some with floating piano or harp – in true Morricone tradition – and others with lovely wordless vocals. Unique in the Morricone catalog to say the least, and an essential slice of his work at its most adventurous! Tracks include the original "La Moglie Piu Bella" single versions and many more variations, plus "Tema di Francesa". CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary score by Il Maestro from 1969, and the kind of work that shows the influence he had on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds that feel almost electronic at times. 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. If you've cut your teeth getting into Italian soundtracks through the "Easy" series – check this one out, and move up to a more sophisticated (yet still pretty darn groovy) level. Titles include "Piume De Cristallo", "Corsa Sui Tetti", "Se Sei Stonato", "Violenza Inattesa", "Silenzio Nel Caos", and "Svolta Drammatica". LP, Vinyl record album

Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a sublime set that's a perfect summation of all his best jazz, bossa, and mod elements – served up in one sparkling set that's gotten countless play on our turntable over the years! The main theme is a classic – a haunting, drifting track that really illustrates Morricone's capacity for warmer elements – something that some folks forget, if they only know his horror music and more ambitious work. Other tunes follow with a similar vibe – each a fresh change, but still awash in sweet and dreamy sounds, but with this great undercurrent of groove as well. Titles include "Metti, Una Sera A Cena", "Sauna", "Nina", "Ric Happening", "Croce D'Amore", and "Terrazza Vuota". Also features the bonus track "Hurry To Me"! LP, Vinyl record album

GDM (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark record – not only in the history of the western, but in that of Ennio Morricone! The soundtrack, written for this hit Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, is everything you'd want in a 60s western – driving orchestral passages, twanging guitar parts, and spooky little bits that isolate the mood of a scene nicely. The work's an instant classic, and is still one of Morricone's strongest western soundtracks – even if it is one of the most familiar. This expanded Italian version features 17 tracks in all – including some rare mono and stereo mixes – and titles include "Quasi Morto", "Musica Sospesa", "Senza Pieta", "Tortura", "Alla Ricerca Dell'Evaso", "Consuelo Baxter", and "Ramon".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeQueimada (aka Burn) (180 gram pressing – clear/orange colored vinyl) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very dark little score by Ennio Morricone – written for an obscure 1969 period film that starred Marlon Brando (and a very disheveled Brando at that!) – filled with cool tunes that mix the Morricone western mode with some haunting elements that almost have a spiritual approach! Many numbers have these moody, airy notes floating through – on organ on some of the best cuts – and even the overall orchestrations tend to hang in the air, but with a lightness that's often different than the usual drama you'd find in such a score. Bruno Nicolai conducts, and vocals are by I Cantori Moderni – and the LP features 19 tracks – some bonus material too – and titles include "Verso Il Futuro", "Queimada", "Osanna", "Jose Dolores", and "Preparazione".

Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer Morricone soundtrack from the late 60s – filled with sweet tunes and moodier numbers – all served up with cool orchestrations, and some sweet work on electric harpsichord too! The score's lesser-known than some of the maestro's best from the time – but is equally great, and one we're very happy to discover – caught at a mode that still has Morricone using some of his best mod elements from the 60s, yet also beginning to explore the darker sounds that would unfurl even more strongly in the 70s! Bruno Nicolai conducts the group, and the set features a few great vocal moments from I Cantori Moderni – on titles that include "Scherzo Da Guerra", "Scherzo Da Baffone", "Filastrocca Per Cretini", and "Lo Sai Che Cosa Facevano Le Donne A Stalin".

A great Ennio Morricone soundtrack – also known to the world under the title of "Blue Beard". Richard Burton stars in this nutty film that features a host of lovely ladies – including Raquel Welch and Joey Heatherton – and Morricone's score is a lot moodier and darker than you'd expect for a femme-heavy film like this! The main theme is pretty and nice, with kind of a "plink plonk" approach, similar to that used in Morricone's western work. The other tracks shift the theme into darker versions – but occasionally open out into lighter orchestral passages. Titles include "Dedicato All Quarta", "Barbablu", "Preludio All Prima Moglie", "1928", and "Brutta Fanfara". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous score from Ennio Morricone – one that has a number of links to earlier Italian soundtrack modes, but which still has some undeniable touches of the maestro! There's passages here that evoke the warmer, sometimes more romantic styles used in Italian films in the earlier part of the 60s – but these are offset by mellower passages with a really subdued sense of darkness – which are then again mixed with a few tunes that get bolder and more mod-sounding – a really complicated array of themes that may lack the subtlety of other Morricone work, but which more than makes up for that lack with a really dynamic energy! 3 tracks feature performances by The Sorrows, and others feature vocals by I Cantori Moderni – used here in a way that's a bit more traditional than their other soundtrack appearances. Titles include "La Diva", "La Donna Gattina", "Pioggia Sul Tuo Viso", "La Donna Romantica", "Pizzicato", "Alta Moda", and "Pioggia Sul Tuo Viso". CD

A groundbreaking album, put together by Zorn and a group of downtown New York hipsters, as a fitting hommage to the genius of Ennio Morricone! The track list sticks to mostly the bigger known numbers, and the album's got a darkness that we'd actually say was a bit out of place, considering the choice of tracks – but the groups formed by Zorn do a pretty good job of breathing new life into some of the tracks, and the album was a key moment in the recognition of Morricone as one of the century's greatest composers. Players include Robert Quine, Tim Berne, Arto Lindsay, Jim Staley, Bill Frisell, Christian Marclay, Anton Fier, and even Big John Patton. Titles include "Erotico", "Once Upon A Time In The West", "Giu La Testa", "Battle Of Algiers", and "The Big Gundown". CD

A tribute both to the genius of Ennio Morricone – and to the five years of music created by the Cineploit label – served up in a style that's a wonderful combination of both worlds! The sound is more in the small combo mode that Cineploit gives us on its records – not the full strings or orchestrations of Morricone's soundtracks, but more fuzz guitar and keyboards – mixed with other sonic elements and some occasional bits of funk! Aesthetically, the music has more of a post-Goblin or John Carpenter sound than the golden Morricone era of the 60s and 70s – and titles include "Pazuzu" by Zoltan, "The Thing" by Videogram, "Revolver" by Leonard/Wank, "Strana Bambina" by Luigi Porto, "Matto Caldo Girotondo" by Orgasmo Sonore, "Stress Infinito" by Rashomon, "La Lucertola" by Oscillotron, and "Die Ballade Von Prafekt Mori" by Thelema.

There have been other collections of Edda's vocals over the years, but this one seems to get it especially right – and it offers some of the most sublime, most exemplary tunes from her famous collaborations with Morricone – songs that almost seem to hang in the air with vocals floating on the breeze, backed up by music that's extremely light and spacious!

The album's a triple-length set – and it's got this really unusual blend of elements that spin out over the extended space of the set – sounds that often just come from the interplay of acoustic and electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – but which often have all these exotic elements in the mix, and these compelling currents of magick that feel like they're echoing Kenneth Anger, Current 93, and a universe of other musical influences too. Most songs are these really compelling originals – but along the way, the project also references Ennio Morricone, Lee Hazlewood, Gene Clark, and other musical heroes of ours.

A rare one from Italian experimental pioneers Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – led by Franco Evangelisti and featuring the great Ennio Morricone on trumpet, who might feel a little bit liberated from the conventions of film soundtrack compositions in this setting, and is making some of the most freely creative music of his career! The sound is improv-based and always compelling, ranging from tense interplay between noisy percussion and Morricone's playful trumpet, to sparer, eerie atmospheric bits, to freeform exploration that clearly influenced many of the avant garde musicians to come. Other players include Walter Branchi, Mario Bertoncini, John Heinemann and Egisto Macchi – and the titles include "Collage 5", "Percussione per Tutti", "Mirage" and "Macroforma".

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP

No junk here – as this hip instrumental group take on the sounds of three Italian soundtrack masters – Ennio Morricone, Piero Umilani, and Armando Trovajoli – all while offering up some very unusual interpretations of their work! The songs are familiar, but the instrumentation is a nice change from simple recasting on keyboards – and instead, these guys use guitar as much as they do some of the older elements – often with some fuzz that brings a current of darkness to the tunes that even exceeds some of the originals! The approach is a bit like that of some of the work on the Cineploit label, but this group is a bit more fully-formed – with trumpet, flute, and bass clarinet from Enrico Gabrielli – and the album also features guest vocals from Edda Dell'Orso on one track too. Titles include "C'Eravamo Tanto Amati", "Masquerade", "Eat It", "Silenzio Nel Caos", "Per Un Pugno Di Dollari", "Gassman Blues", "The Body", and "Conflitti". LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy MarchIf You Loved Me – RCA Recordings From Around The World 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Peggy March is a singer with a surprisingly varied career – an artist that most folks know for only her early little girl pop fame – but one who went onto record a very unusual range of sounds as the 60s moved on! RCA was her label, and while she never hit the heights of the charts after her early hit, the company was more than committed to allowing Peggy's sound to grow and flourish – especially on the international scene, where she not only recorded tracks in other languages, but also picked up new non-American songs, and served up very cool English-language versions! This set really does a great job of moving past the early stuff, and looking at this lost later legacy of March's music – sounds that we'd easily compare to the hipper 60s material by Jackie DeShannon, even though Peggy didn't write her own material. The range of studio talents really keeps things interesting – there's even one track arranged by Ennio Morricone – and titles include "He's Back Again", "If You Loved Me", "He Couldn't Care Less", "Watch What You Do With My Baby", "Johnny Cool", "Kilindini Docks", "Eh Bravo", "Passo Su Passo", "Too Long Away", "Wasurenaiwa", "Ne Joue Pas Les Enfants", "He Couldn't Care Less", "This Heart Wasn't Made To Kick Around", "Can't Stop Thinkin About Him", and "Fool Fool Fool".

Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... About June 1, 2018 (delayed)
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!

Think what you may about Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota – to our ears, Piero Umiliani brought as much to Italian film scoring in the 60s as those two giants – even if his music was never given the international fame it deserved! This great late 60s collection brings together some of the key game-changing work of Umiliani from earlier years in the decade – tracks that have plenty of the jazz of his roots in the postwar scene, but which also reflect not just his new ideas for instrumental arrangements, but also for recording as well – qualities that would explode even more in his experimental material in the decade to come! Yet here, Umiliani is more light and playful – very jazzy on many numbers, with a fair bit of bossa elements on some selections too – in a package that features music scored for the films Extraconiugale, Il Comandante, Controsesso, La Bella Di Lodi, and Tutto Il Bello Dell'Uomo.

An impressive guest roster from both realms participate – with appearances by Herbie Hancock (!!!), Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, frequent collaborator and stylistic sibling Thundercat, strings arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson and others. Standout moments include the tracks "Tesla" and "Moment Of Hesitation", both with some incredible keyboards by Herbie Hancock, plus the uber-moody, Ennio Morricone-sampled "Turtles" – but the whole thing is great, and shows that the Flying Lotus phenomenon is still in ascension, circa 2014.

The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some surprisingly funky rhythms at times – at a level that's even more compelling than some of the group's other projects – especially given that the album's three tracks are all quite long, with lots of room for instrumental experimentation! Yet as in some of the best prog work of the period – such as by Can or Faust – there's a sense of focus and groove that really holds the whole thing together. And given that these guys had already had years of experience in the studio – on both sides of the production booth – they really have a wonderful ear for extremely inventive sounds.

The group were groundbreaking – and still have never been matched today – and worked in a blend of acoustic and electronic elements that came off as something completely fresh and unusual in their hands – qualities that make them every bit as important as the French pioneers of musique concrete, even though they never got the same credit at the time. This package brings together concert performances and improvisations – with members who include Egisto Macchi, Ennio Morricone, Mario Bertoncini, Walter Branchi, Franco Evangelisti, and Frederic Rzewski – as well as a live 1967 performance on DVD, directed by Theo Gallehr. The quantity of material on this package is greater than the previous issue – with more unearthed material – and in addition to the DVD, the whole thing also features a heavy book, with photos and notes in English and Italian. Selections include "Concreto 1", "Kate", "A7-2", "Trio", "A5-3", "Es War Einmal", and "Fili 2" – plus 13 improvisations, and other selections too. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNuova Consonanza ... CD
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most striking work we've ever heard from this legendary Italian group – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the power of their work in the 60s and 70s! The assemblage features important avant garde sounds from Ennio Morricone – and offers up a real look at the roots of the atonal and offbeat musical elements that he'd explore on his famous horror soundtracks – but in a setting that's right out there with the farthest reaches of the experimental scene at the time! As the group's name implies, there's a lot of improvisation going on here – played by musicians who include Morricone on trumpet, Frederic Rzewski on piano, Mario Bertoncini on percussion, John Heineman on trombone, Roland Kayn on Hammond and vibes, Franco Evangelisti on piano and percussion, and Ivan Vandor on tenor sax. Yet the sound is hardly free jazz, either – as there's more of a avant compositional vibe going on – a bit like the sense of chance in the music of John Cage, especially as the instruments and players shift from track to track. Titles include "Quartetto", "Trio Di Fiati", "Improvvisazione Per Cinque", "Improvvisazione Per Otto", "RKBA 1675/1", and the haunting "Cantata", which just features voices processed through filters and reverb!

✨✧ Alvarius BWith A Beaker On The Burner & An Otter In The Oven ... CD
Abduction, 2017. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Alvarius B – aka Alan Bishop, who you'll know from his long legacy of music as part of the Sun City Girls – but who's definitely blowing us away here as a solo artist on his own! The album's a triple-length set – and it's got this really unusual blend of elements that spin out over the extended space of the set – sounds that often just come from the interplay of acoustic and electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – but which often have all these exotic elements in the mix, and these compelling currents of magick that feel like they're echoing Kenneth Anger, Current 93, and a universe of other musical influences too. Most songs are these really compelling originals – but along the way, the project also references Ennio Morricone, Lee Hazlewood, Gene Clark, and other musical heroes of ours. Titles include "Zion The Rocket Ship", "Yellow Dog Prairie", "Their Words Disappear", "Smokin To Live", "Central California Nightmare", "Mark Twain August", "Dark In My Heart", "Obelisk", "Locust Rain", "Fine Line", "The Devil's Spine", "I'll Carry Your Dwarf", "Green Thumb", "Crackled Witch", "Icicle Pillar", "Cantaloupe Brain", and "Take The Veil Down".

✨✧ VariousCine Jazz – The European Film Music Collection ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great jazzy moments from the best years of European cinema – a collection that starts out with the French New Wave, then moves into a range of great sounds from the Italian and French scene of the 60s and early 70s! Most of the music here isn't straight jazz – and instead, the cuts mix some strong instrumental solos with groovy, swinging, and upbeat arrangements – that fantastic use of jazz in film scores that the European scene of the 60s really took up and ran with – into places that were often much cooler, much more interesting than American soundtracks of the time! The collection's filled with great little gems that really work well in each others' company – and titles include "Those Lazy Days" by Armando Trovajoli, "Number One Superman" by Piero Piccioni, "Jazz Interludio" by Giorgio Gaslini, "La Preda" by Vince Tempera & Franco Bixio, "Astaroth" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Eva" by Michel Legrand, "Una Gita Mancata" by Ennio Morricone, and "Fiacre" by Georges Delerue.
