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
(German 70s pressing.)

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
(Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeDuck You Sucker (Giu La Testa) ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Cover has a promo sticker, some wear and aging, and a bit of fraying on the top seam.)

✨✧ 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
(Tan label pressing.)

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeLa Tragedie D'Un Homme Ridicule (La Tragedia Di Un Uomo Ridicolo) ... LP
General Music (France), 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A relatively traditional score by Morricone, written for this 1981 film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. Most of the work is orchestral, with some sparer instrumental moments, and nice melodic themes, in the tradition of some of Morricone's more mainstream work, or some of the 70s scores by Nino Rota. Titles include "Le Inquietudini Feriali", "Pour Barbara", "Una Lettera Via Area", "Senz Indizi", "Quartetto Nervoso", and "Mugendo Verdi". LP, Vinyl record album

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
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

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
(Yellow label mono promo. Cover has a bumped corner.)
