Ennio MorriconeAllonsanfan ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1974. Used ... $11.99
A lost 70s score from Ennio Morricone – penned for a period piece set in 19th Century Italy, and done with a driving, dramatic sort of feel! Some of the numbers here have that subdued orchestral mode that Morricone used at his most subtle moments – a style that's not as crazy as some of his other work from earlier years, but which still comes across with some nice dark edges – especially in the mellower moments. Other numbers feature violin solo work, or chorus vocals from I Cantori Moderni – not used that often, but enough to provide some nice variety in the album. Titles include "Te Deu Laudamus", "Rabbia E Tarantella", "Allonsanfan", "Tradimento", "Frammenti Di Sonata", and "Ritorno A Casa". CD

Ennio MorriconeDimensioni Sonore 1/Sound Dimensions 1 – Musiche Per L'Immagine E L'Immaginazione ... CD
RCA/GDM (Italy), 1972. Used ... $12.99
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone – a rare album of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of his recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter soundtrack material – with especially strong work on strings, showing the way that the maestro learned his sense of offbeat tones and phrasings from the 20th Century classical scene, which he then applied famously to some of his horror scores of the time! The music here definitely has qualities that match the spookier soundtrack 70s material from Morricone – especially his move to horror at the time – and as with just about all of his recordings, there's a fair bit of unusual sounds and elements that are extremely hard to peg in terms of their sources. Titles include "Radiazioni", "Rifrazione", "Fasi", "Proporzionale", "Anagramma", "Antitesi", and "Conduizone". CD

Ennio MorriconeHornet's Nest ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. Used ... $12.99
A score that's arguably much better than the movie it was written for – a great Ennio Morricone moment for a 70s thriller that starred Rock Hudson! Morricone's a bit restrained, but in a way that's pretty nice – making for some lighter orchestral numbers that offset the darker mood of the film in a good way – that shift of music that often makes the soundtrack almost feel like a separate movie going on at the same time as the images on the screen! Titles include "Guns In The Tunnel", "Looking For A Partisan Doctor", "Bianca & Turner", "Research In The Wood", "Boy & German Officer Fighting", "Death Of A Boy", and "Blowing The Dam". CD

Ennio MorriconeUn Esercito Di 5 Uomini/Extrasensorial (The Link) ... CD
Beat (Italy), Late 60s. Used ... $13.99
The genius of Ennio Morricone – heard here in 2 different settings! Un Esercito Di 5 Uomini is a late 60s spaghetti western – but as usual with Morricone, the sound is way beyond the obvious – and comes across here with these fierce, dark musical lines that juxtapose sweeter strings with heavier percussion and some stark, fuzzy guitar bits! 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". Extrasensorial is a spooky little horror film – and one that's served up here in some equally dark instrumentation – but which sometimes has that redemptive quality that we love in some of Morricone's best work from the time. There's some great watery arrangements on a few tracks – drifting out isolated instrumentation through larger backings in a really brilliant way – and titles include "Through His Eyes", "Video Telepathy", "The Link", "Mirror", and "Sinister".

Ennio Morricone & OthersEnnio Morricone Remixes Vol 1 ... CD
Compost (Germany), 2003. Used ... $6.99
A soundtrack for the 21st Century – original film tunes written and scored by il maestro Morricone, re-mixed and re-done by the Compost Records collective! Compost isn't normally as into the soundtrack bag as some of their other contemporaries on the European scene – which is why this project is even fresher than other remix projects of its type. Most of the artists here focus on the core elements of the tunes – going for the one time change, tonal passage, or light melody that makes the tune – then extrapolating that into a whole new work of their own design. Morricone's never sounded so contemporary, and the package is filled with new grooves that really change up the pace. Titles include "Ninna Nanna In Blu" by Raw Deal, "Amore Come Dolore" by Needs, "La Cugina" by Amalgamation Of Soundz, "Rivoluzione (con-fusion mix)" by Butti 49, "La Moda" by International Pony, "Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo" by Swell Session, "Beat No 3" by Leroy Hanghofer, and "Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene" by Alex Attias.

Ennio Morricone & OthersMorricone Remix – Morricone Rmx ... CD
Reprise/Warner, 2001. Used ... $1.99
As any reader of these pages will know, we're nuts about Ennio Morricone – the greatest Italian soundtrack composer ever, and quite possibly one of the greatest composers to have ever walked the face of this planet! Here, a similarly Morricone-mad bunch of folks pay tribute to the maestro, by remixing tracks from his classic soundtracks of the 60s and 70s! Titles include "The Man With The Harmonica" by Apollo Four Forty, "Chi Mai" by Nightmares On Wax, "Giocoso, Gioioso" by Groove Corporation, "La Bambola Come Maddalena" by Sofa Surfers, "La Lucertola" by De Phazz, "Clan Of The Sicilians" by DJ Dick of Rocker's Hi-Fi, "Il Grande Silencio" by Thievery Corporation, and "Belinda May" by Fantastic Plastic Machine. 13 tracks in all!

Ennio Morricone (with Astrud Gilberto)Belmondo Morricone – Le Casse/Peur Sur La Ville ... CD
Play Time (France), 1971/1975. Used ... $29.99
2 of Morricone's best soundtracks ever! We mean it! If you've ever wanted to get into Morricone's work, but didn't know where to start, pick this CD. It's got the fantastic score to the film Le Casse (released in the US as The Burglars), with a number of extra tracks that weren't on the original, plus the score to Puer Sur La Ville, which (like Le Casse) was a 70's action film starring Jean-Paul Belmondo. Le Casse is one of the most mind-blowing records we've ever heard, and even though we've had a copy for years, it's still blowing our minds. Ennio Morricone lays down one of his most twisted soundtracks, with weird off-kilter piano, and very spare spacious arrangements that give this sort of bedeviling feel to the whole thing. The whole thing's a masterpiece somewhere in between Euro scoring and bargain basement minimalism, and this version's got 2 tracks with vocals by Astrud Gilberto, and 2 more with vocals by Mirelle Mathieu. Peur Sur La Ville is almost as great, and the whole thing's a beautifully packaged, totally official, limited French CD that you probably can't find anywhere else! CD

✨✧ Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight ... CD
Decca, 2015. Used ... 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. CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGrazie Zia/Uccidete Il Vitello Grasso E Arrostitelo ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1968/1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two late 60s groovers from Morricone! Grazie Zia is a very short soundtrack – featuring only 4 tracks in all – but it's got some incredible vocals by Renata Cortiglioni, who sings in this mode listed in the notes as a "chorus of treble voices", which makes for a very spooky sound! Uccidete Il Vitello Grasso has a lot of tightly snapping tunes – horns popping out over beats, a number in the "shake" 60s mode, mixed with mellower tracks that are more in Morricone's contemplative style. There's a total of 12 tracks on the CD – which is a bit short, but very groovy! Titles include "Grazie Zia", "Guerra E Pace, Pollo E Brace", "Filastrocca Vietnamita", "Lungo La Stradina", "Echi Del 700", and "Shake Introspettivo". CD

BalancoMore ... CD
Schema/Fez (Italy), 1999. Used ... $5.99
Incredible! Although the first album by Balanco had a definite Italian bossa sound (which was very popular in their acid jazz scene a few years ago), this great second album by the group breaks into whole new territory – like French and Italian soundtrack grooves, particularly in the vein of Ennio Morricone (who they covered on their first LP) and the great Francis Lai! The style of the group's changed slightly – and they've developed this amazing keyboard, bass, and vocals sound that's very similar to the instrumentation used in some of Morricone's best 70's work. Titles include "The Bachelor Waltz", "Mrs. Beat", "The Girl From Montenegro", "Dreamflight", "Man & A Woman", and "Bossa Memorandum". One of our favorites recently – and a another delight from the Schema label! CD

Flying LotusYou're Dead! ... CD
Warp, 2014. Used ... $5.99
Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from cosmic soul jazz to leftfield hip hop! 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. Other cuts include "Cold Dead", "Never Catch Me" with Kendrick Lamar, "Dead Man's Tetris" with Snoop Dogg, "Turkey Dog Coma", "Stirring", "Obligatory Cadence", "The Protest" and more. CD

Bruno NicolaiLa Coda Dello Scorpione ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. Used ... $28.99
A dark dark masterpiece from the legendary Bruno Nicolai – written for an equally dark thriller with a wonderful edge! The work here is on a par with that of Nicolai's frequent partner, Ennio Morricone – often using full orchestrations to score a deeper theme in the film – but also often moving to lighter, leaner moments based around a simpler instrumental mode. There's a staccato feel to some of the best moments on the set – spare and edgey, with a sense of dread that's almost palpable. The CD brings together 32 tracks from the film – making for a richly complete document of Nicolai's genius in the score – and the whole thing's also packaged with some nice images from the movie as well!

Piero PiccioniKenner/More Than A Miracle (3CD set) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967/1969. Used 3CD ... $33.99
A double-header of material from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – presented in a wonderfully rich, heavily-detailed style – the first time we've ever seen his music handled in the lavish Film Score Monthly manner! First up is the obscure soundtrack to Kenner – a late 60s Jim Brown film, done by Piero with a wonderfully sensitive soundtrack – really lovely woodwind interplay, with an undercurrent of jazz – almost a Johnny Mandel sort of mode, but with some of the occasional mod touches you'd expect from Piccioni on some of his better-known scores. There's some cuts that have a nicely pronounced soul jazz vibe – while others move between some lyrical sounds that are mighty sweet – and there's some bits that feature organ played with the raspy edges that always make Piero's handling of the instrument so different from others'. CD 1 features 32 tracks from Kenner – including some rare bonus material too – all conducted by Bruno Nicolai! CDs 2 and 3 feature More Than A Miracle, a dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". This expanded package features very detailed notes – and a whopping 70 tracks from the film – the full soundtrack album initially issued on MGM, 19 cuts from the film score itself, and an additional 36 bonus tracks too!

Armando TrovajoliLa Famiglia ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1987. Used ... $8.99
Armando Trovajoli's score for Ettore Scola's story of a multi-generational family – served up with just the right sort of tones to fit the story! The music here is a fair bit warmer and more sentimental than Trovajoli's work of a few decades before – much more in the space that Ennio Morricone was hitting with some of his bigger film scores of the 80s – and done in tones that echo history and family with every note. The style's never cloying or commercial, though – and like Morricone, Trovajoli succeeds through understatement – keeping the backings subdued at most moments, and letting smaller instrumental voices take center stage. Titles include "Addio", "Ricordi", "La Familgia", "Primo Incontro", "Sensazione", "Telefonata Da Parigi", and "Adelina". CD

VariousAttori A Mano Armata – The Main Actors Of The Most Violent Season Of Italian Cinema (CD & book) ... CD
Cinedelic/Amarkord (Italy), 1970s. Used CD & Book ... $11.99
An incredibly cool little package – especially if you dig funky grooves from 70s Italian police films! The book alone is almost worth the price – a 64 page hardcover tome that presents full color reproductions of 70s movie posters, images from the films, and filmographies for a few of the key actors in these gripping dramas. But added to this great book is a killer CD – filled with funky tracks all picked by Cinedelic Records, with an ear towards the kinds of drums, basslines, and keyboards that have helped these older Italian soundtrack gems stay alive with a younger funky generation. CD features a whopping 22 tracks in all – with titles that include "Il Grande Racket" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, "Montreal Non Stop" by Luis Bacalov, "Tira A Rezza Oj Piscatore" by Raoul, "Folk & Violence" by Franco Micalizzi, "Sangue Di Sbirro" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "L'Intoccabile Mr Cliff" by Riz Ortolani, "La Polizia Chiede Aiuto" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Preludio" by Osanna, "Gangster Story" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, "Inseguimento E Fuga (2)" by Ennio Morricone, and "Kidnap" by Piero Piccioni.

The soundtrack for Volume 2 of Tarantino's splatter revenge epic shapes up just as well as the first – with several cuts by Ennio Morricone (the film's pace is largely modeled after Italian spaghetti westerns, and the soundtrack naturally follows suit) plus Luis Bacalov, Johnny Cash, Malcolm McLaren, Charlie Feathers and others, plus dialogue bits by Uma Thurman and David Carradine, and incidental bits and pieces by RZA! Tracks include "Goodnight Moon" by Shivaree, "Il Tramonto", "L'Arena" and "A Silhouette Of Doom" by Ennio Morricone, "A Satisfied Mind" by Johnny Cash, "Summertime Killer" by Luis Bacalov, "About Her" by Malcolm McLaren, "Malaguena Salerosa" by Chingon and more.

✨✧ VariousCinevox – The History Of Soundtrack (Limited Edition 4 CD Box Set) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 4CD ... Out Of Stock
Well, the title's a bit ambitious – and sets a goal that it can hardly live up to – but this is still a great little set! This nicely-priced 4CD package isn't really an overview of the "history" of soundtracks – but it is a wonderful collection of Italian cinematic goodies, pulled from the rich catalog of Cinevox Records! The set's divided up into 4 genres – one for each CD – Western, Comedy, Horror, and Police Thrillers. Overall, the work ranges from groovy upbeat tunes, including some excellent bossa-inspired numbers, to spaghetti western classics, to dark and turgid horror themes, and back to a few nice funky tracks. There's a total of 55 tracks in all, and the set features work by soundtrack composers that include Stelvio Cipriani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Riz Ortolani, Goblin, Ennio Morricone, Gianni Ferrio, Augusto Martelli, Carlo Rustichelli, Piero Umiliani, and Francesco De Masi. Most of the work on the set has already been issued in full soundtrack form by Cinevox, but at this price, it's a great way to check out the music! CD

El (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dreamy genius from Piero Piccioni – one of our favorite Italian composers ever! This set does for Piccioni what the Mondo Morricone sets did for Ennio – in that it pulls together an assortment of his best tracks from late 60s and early 70s soundtracks – with a focus on the loveliest work of the period! Bossa rhythms meet bubbling organ, tinkling piano, floating voices, and other soft and pillowy elements – creating tunes that have a groove, but which are also topped off by lots of sweet easy touches. The collection features 20 tracks in all – and honestly, if you'd asked us to pick our favorites by Piero, we'd hardly have done a better job ourselves! Titles include "Cera Una Volta-Finale", "Capriccio", "Coming To The Point", "Il Dopolotta", "Sycamore Trails", "Nolan Theme", "Mystery", "Una Colt In Mano Al Diavolo", "Easy Dreamer", and "Amore In Fiore".
