Ennio MorriconeBarbablu (aka Bluebeard) (with bonus tracks) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rustblade (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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

Ennio MorriconeDuck You Sucker (Giu La Testa) ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A fantastically beautiful record – easily one of Ennio Morricone's dreamiest scores of the 70s! 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! Titles include "Giu La Testa", "Amore", "Mesa Verde", "Rivoluzione Contro", "Dopop L'Esplosione", "Scherzi A Parte", and "Invenzione Per John". LP, Vinyl record album

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 Prefetto Di Ferro (picture disc) ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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)... $26.99
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)... $24.99
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 MorriconeMercenary (aka Mercenario) ... LP
United Artists (Germany), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $36.99
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 ... $24.99
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) ... LP
Death Waltz (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... About April 27, 2018
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

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 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

GDM/Rustblade (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 MorriconeGood, The Bad, And The Ugly – Original Soundtrack ... LP
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 MorriconeIndagine Su Un Cittadino Al Di Sopra Di Ogni Sospetto (gold & black mixed colored vinyl) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily 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. Titles include "Taglio Primo", "Miraggio", "Indagine", and "Ripresa L'Indagine". Also includes a few bonus tracks – "Miraggio (alt take 3 stereo)", "Indagine (alt take 2 stereo)", and "Indagine Su Un Cittadino Al Di Sopra Di Ogni Sospetto (finale stereo mix)".

Alvarius BWith A Beaker On The Burner & An Otter In The Oven Vol 2 – A Mark Twain August ... LP
Abduction, 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
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 on this second part include "Mark Twain August", "Dark In My Heart", "Obelisk", "Locust Rain", "Fine Line", and "The Devil's Spine". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno Nicolai's soundtrack for the second and last film in the Sabata trilogy from the early 70s – noteworthy for the fact that Yul Brynner took over the starring role, and that Nicolai handled the scoring of the film! Nicolai's style here borrows a lot from frequent partner Ennio Morricone – and the overall feel of the work is extremely powerful – with the sort of broad, bold Morricone themes that we love so much – often done with unusual touches that include floating vocals, trilling flute, echoey guitar, and even a bit of whistling by Alessandro Alessandroni!

Bruno NicolaiUna Giornata Spesa Bene ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
A rare one from Bruno Nicolai – a composer that many people recognize from his work with Ennio Morricone, but one who can sound even groovier on his own! Bruno's got some really wide-open ears on the set – able to bring in lots of unusual sounds and odd inflections, while still keeping things compelling and groovy – even dipping into a bit of Bach at one moment, but with a very hip sort of Italian presentation! Some rhythms are bossa, some are more playful – and instrumentation includes organ, piano, plucked guitar, stepping strings, and lots of mighty nice basslines. Titles include "Versus III", "Una Giornata Spesa Bene", "Verdetto Per I Giurati", "La Fine", "Minuto Su Minuto", "Inutilmente", and "L'Idea Fissa". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni/Roger WilliamsMore Than A Miracle ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiAnonimo Veneziano ... LP
CAM (Italy), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the all-time great soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – and one of his few film scores of the 70s to circulate at an international level too! Yet the fame of the record is very well-deserved, because the music is completely sublime – a mixture of light orchestrations and tinkling piano and harpsichord lines that often have the cool, compressed feel of the best Ennio Morricone music from the same time – particularly his more love-styled themes. The approach is wonderful – more acoustic than the electric sounds that Cipriani would use later on. The album features one longer classical-oriented track conducted by George Gaslini, but most of the titles are shorter ones – and include the cuts "To Be The One You Love", "Canals Of Venice", "Reflections", "End Of A Story", "If I Should Ever Lose You", "One Day Together", and "Soft Winds".

✨✧ Group (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza)Feed-Back (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! 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. Titles include "Kumalo", "The Feed-Back", and "Quasars". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ Flying LotusYou're Dead! (with download) ... LP
Warp, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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.

Die Schachtel (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy 5LP, DVD & Book ... Out Of Stock
One of the most important documents of this legendary Italian group – a key bridge not only between the worlds of avant composition and free improvisation, but also between the soundtrack and sound library scenes as well! 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

✨✧ Calibro 35Calibro 35 ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A contemporary combo, but one who really get the sound of older soundtracks right – particularly the late 60s/early 70s Italian generation that's inspired the name and artwork of this set! Instrumentation is nice and lean – keyboards, guitar, bass, and percussion – used more in the tight ways of a mod funk combo, but with strong soundtrack leanings in the tunes – no surprise, as the songs here are all pulled from vintage scores by Ennio Morricone, Luiz Bacalov, Armando Trovajoli, and others of the golden age of Italian soundtracks! And if you're suspicious about the sound, don't be – because these guys are totally great – no fake-retro moments, or overly programmed rhythms – just live instrumentation handled beautifully, in ways that bring something new to the tunes, but remain very faithful to their original inspiration. Titles include "Preludio", "Italia Amano Armata", "Titoli", "Notte In Bovisa", "Summertime Killer", "La Polizia S'Incazza", "Shake Balera", "Spiralys", and "Gangster Story".
