Ennio MorriconeBig Gundown ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Sealed ... $28.99
One of Morricone's first groundbreaking scores for the western – a brilliant batch of tunes composed for The Big Gundown, handled in a way that mixed the typical western guitar-based themes, with some of il maestro's other compulsions, like wordless vocals and isolated instrumentation amidst lush orchestral backdrops. There's barely any "spaghetti" on the plate of this one – just 13 brilliant tracks, including the main title theme, "Run, Man, Run", "The Bullfight", "After The Verdict", 'First Desert", "Cucillo Arrives" and "Normoni Choir".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeFive Man Army (aka Un Esercito Di Cinque Uomini) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1969. Used ... $29.99
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" – and this Film Score version features 60 minutes of music in all, plus the usual top-shelf sound and wonderful booklet!

Ennio MorriconeI Ladri Della Notte (Les Voleurs De La Nuit) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy ... $18.99
An overlooked 80s score from Ennio Morricone – not done for an Italian or American film, but for one of Sam Fuller's later directorial efforts in France! The music is fantastic – very much in the best spirit of some of Morricone's genius from the start of the 70s – almost echoing some of those classics at times, in the way that a solo woodwind might snake out, or some bracing string lines might pulse to create tension – all with this slow-building sense of wonder and majesty that reminds yet again why Morricone at his best is so blindingly brilliant! Titles include "A Fake", "Counterpoints", "Unconscious Happiness", "Thieves After Dark", "Lancinant For Two", and "Expressive Suspense". CD features 9 more bonus tracks too! CD

Ennio MorriconeIl Giudice E Il Suo Boia (aka End Of The Game) ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About January 15, 2020 (delayed)
One of the more unusual Morricone scores of the 70s – penned as part of a collaboration with director Maximilian Schell, and done in ways that are a bit different than some of the maestro's Italian work! There's plenty of voices at play here – the lead of Edda Dell'Orso, and harmonies from Il Cantori Moderni – used in ways that are sometimes a bit sweeter than usual, with a level of warmth that might not be what you'd expect from the movie! Morricone also throws in a few waltz-like melodies, too – almost the sort of numbers you'd find in a Nino Rota score – but as the soundtrack moves on, things get noticeably darker, too – and move into a rich array of odd sounds and weird tones.

Ennio MorriconeLa Chiave ... CD
Cabum/Beat (Italy), 1983. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the more obscure Ennio Morricone soundtracks of the 80s – done for an erotic Italian film at the same time he was rising to greater fame for big budget scores in Hollywood! Yet despite the less arty setting of the music here, Morricone is completely at the top of his game – not resorting to electronic shortcuts, as so many of his contemporaries were doing, especially on sexy films and comedies – and instead rolling out a full set of orchestrations that include some amazing woodwind and string passages, sometimes with a rich dramatic vibe, other times with the leaner Morricone modes of the 70s. Titles include "Mini Can Can Grottesco", "Da Vienna A Vienna", "Malessere", "Lei Bensata Da Lui", "Funebre E Pomposo", and "Quattro Frammenti Per Orchestra Da Camera". CD

Ennio MorriconeLa Donna Invisibile (180 gram pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Monte Stella (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of Morricone's most fantastic scores ever! The sound is very subdued and very subtle, but it's got that beautiful Morricone sound. The notes just inch by, one after one, in short, spare passages – and they build up into a tapestry of sweet, yet off-kilter sounds. It's beautiful stuff, and the kind of brilliant compositional work that makes Morricone one of the greatest composers ever! A wonderful mix of bossa and light grooves – and a great one if you dig the groovier side of Morricone. Titles include "La Donna Invisible", "La Moda", "Un Bacio", "Alla Serenita", "Silenziosamente", and "Incontro Travsversale". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeLa Proprieta Non E Piu Un Furto ... LP
Goodfellas (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
Dark echoes, mixed with warmer moments – in a compelling little soundtrack that breaks from more familiar Morricone modes! There's a few themes here that almost echo a Mondo Morricone style – but other tracks are often quite spare, and almost earthy – far at the limits of hearing, with odd percussive bits, voice passages, and other "natural" sounds – which are then occasionally contrasted by some bolder orchestrations that still bear the traditional mark of the maestro. The change is quite compelling – and really draws the listening ear inward – and titles include "Al Ladro", "Rapina", "Sui Tetti", "Colpo", "La Proprieta Non E Piu Un Furto", "Se Po Si Radica", and "Immobile Come Una Bistecca".

Ennio MorriconeLe Clan Des Siciliens (aka Il Clan Dei Siciliani) ... LP
CAM/Universal (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... About January 20, 2020 (delayed)
Bruno Nicolai conducted this score by Morricone for the film The Sicilian Clan – a bit of a hit back in 1969, and a dark little gangster film! The soundtrack's got a number of different classic Morricone approaches – it starts with a power "boing" on the track's grooving opener, has some darker orchestral passages that glide along nicely, and mixes slow-grooving organ with a bit of whistling and more boings on other numbers! You'll love that boing – which really sets the whole thing off in a crazy mood – and you'll understand why Morricone's range of expression on the soundtrack makes it one of his biggest hits from the time! Titles include "Tema Per Le Goff", "Jeanne E La Spiaggia", "Il Clan Dei Siciliani", "Tema Italiano No 2", and "Francobolli". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeMetti Una Sera A Cena (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
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

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeNavajo Joe – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1966. Used ... $18.99
A great early western soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – penned for a US film starring Burt Reynolds as the Navajo in the title! The work here is possibly a bit more conventional than some of Morricone's darker western scores – more dramatic at points, but still in ways that undeniably have the mark of the maestro! The core theme that recurs features this stark, descending piano part that's really great – rolling down a few stairs along with a bit of horns and percussion, all to set a very somber mood. Other musical elements include a bit of guitar, some nice "Navajo" style vocals, and just a bit of spare strings – and titles include "The Peyote Saloon", "A Silhouette Of Doom", "Ride Into Town", "But Joe Say No", "Navajo Harmonica", and "A Bad Childhood". This CD version restores the full score wonderfully – a total of 28 tracks, plus 7 more bonus tracks – all wrapped up in a lush package with plenty of notes as well! CD

Ennio MorriconeRuba Al Prossimo Tuo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
A dreamy soundtrack for an obscure Rock Hudson film – one that sports some really wonderful music from Ennio Morricone! The music here is occasionally topped with groovy vocals – often sung wordlessly in a "la la la" sort of mode by I Cantori Moderni, and set to instrumentation that's sometimes soft, sometimes swinging – always in the best late 60s Italian mode. At times, there's a slightly more American 60s feel to the soundtrack than some of Morricone's other work – but in a really great way that makes for less dark corners, and brighter instrumental flourishes that really stand out. The main theme repeats often through the album – sometimes with a bit of guitar, sometimes keyboards – all very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeSlalom – Original Soundtrack (colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A very groovy early soundtrack by Morricone! This one's earlier than many of the reissues we've been stocking – and it's got a groovy sound that's made even groovier by some fab vocal work by I Cantori Moderni, a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers. The group has sung more famously on soundtracks by Armando Trovajoli – but they sound pretty darn great on this one, grooving along wonderfully over some spy-like themes by Morricone – with lots of jazzy changes. The tracklist is structured differently than previous editions, and extends the previous vinyl versions by more than 10 minutes! Titles include "Slalom (Titoli)", "Sestriere", "Una Sera In Albergo", "Un Omicidio Misterioso", "Sperduto A El Cairo I", "Incontro Magico" (Parts I, II & III), "Passeggiata Nella Neve" and more.

GDM/Monte Stella (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
A mid 70s Italian cartoon, but one that features some great soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone and Alessandro Alessandroni – each of whom bring a slightly different feel to the set! Morricone composed the film's main love theme – "Forse Basta" – a beautiful number that has all the compressed, slow-stepping brilliance of some of the maestro's more familiar 70s numbers – somewhat sweet, but with a subtle undercurrent of sadness that's really great too. Alessandroni takes off from this mode with his other work on the set – staying sweet at points, but also really opening up into a range of more playful modes – sometimes funky or fuzzy, sometimes more romping, all in ways that nicely match the action in the cartoon. I Cantori Moderni sing on a few numbers that have a straighter, lyrical sound. 21 tracks in all – including "I Baronetti", "Latino Americana", "Made In USA", "Forse Basta", "Deserto Di Elam", and "Sirtaki Dei Colnnelli".

Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1974. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $18.99
Wild work from Ennio Morricone – and not usually the kind of track you'd expect to find on a 7" single! "Il Buio" has all these fast-moving, really sinister violins at the start – almost raging like a swarm of angry hornets – before mellowing out about halfway through, and going for a more familiar Morricone mode! "La Luce" is just the opposite of its title – lots of dark organ lines on an echoey church instrument – very much the kind of theme you'd expect to hear for the Antichrist! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ennio Morricone/Gruppo Improvvisazione NuovaGli Occhi Freddi Della Paura (aka Cold Eyes Of Fear) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tiger Bay (UK), 1971. Sealed (reissue)... $24.99
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".

✨✧ 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

Genius soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone – a later score done for director Pedro Almodovar, and maybe one of Morricone's best from these later years! It's almost as if the maestro was setting something special aside for Almodovar – as there's many tunes here that echo some of the most creative Morricone modes of the 70s, at a level that didn't always show up on his more famous film scores of the decade – and the music is awash in spacious, open lines that shimmer with some fantastic flugelhorn work from jazz musicians Franco Piana, Giovanni Santucci, and Oscar Valdambrini.

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

An amazing collection of music from one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time – presented in a hefty book-styled package, and done with a very unique presentation of his work! The package is huge – a hardcover volume with 18 CDs and a 48 page book, all presenting a total of 400 tracks that really span the scope of the music of Ennio Morricone over the decade – presented on CDs that each have a different theme, to showcase a different side of the maestro's many creations! The first five CDs focus on Morricone's music for director Sergio Leone, and other CDs present work for directors Henri Verneuil, Roland Joffe, Quentin Tarantino, and Giuseppe Tornatore – plus a full set of music used in films that starred Jean-Paul Belmondo. There's also thematic CDs, too – "Genre Cinema", "Committed Cinema", "Mafia Thrillers", "History Of Italy", and "Faces Of Italian Cinema" – and the final CD features songs penned by Morricone, interpreted by a host of others – including Charles Aznavour, Chico Buarque, Traffic Quintet, Gerard Depardieu, Sting, and many more.

Tiger Bay (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, and sort of satanic! Biance Di Renata Cortiglioni is the singer, and she's much more word-based than Edda Dell'Orso – and it appears that her vocals are overdubbed to create this cool sort of chorus effect – one that only makes the whole thing sound even creepier! In addition to the snapping rhythms of the vocal tunes, there's also some nice sprightly elements on the instrumental cuts too – not upbeat or funky, but an offbeat way that's got a jaunty snare for propulsion. Titles include "Fratello Biondo", "Guerra E Pace Polle E Brace", "Amore Col Cuore", and "Grazie Zia". LP, Vinyl record album

A really beautiful collection of work from Ennio Morricone – one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time, especially during the period covered in this set! The songs here are from a time when the maestro was effortlessly combining jazz, mod rhythms, rock instrumentation, and other stranger elements – all with a flawless sense of presentation and production that could make even familiar sounds come across in really different ways! The package definitely focuses on the groove promised in the title – but if you know Morricone at all, you'll know that that doesn't mean familiar funk, and instead hits some really mindblowing territory beyond description. Includes work from the films Com Impari Ad Amare Le Donna, Ruba Al Prossimo Tuo, Il Diavolo Nel Cervello, Spasmo, Ad Ogni Costo, Maddaelna, La Dona Invisible, Le Foto Proibite, and other Morricone classics!

Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

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
(Includes the album on CD!)

Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaGruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza (1965) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
One of the most obscure chapters in the career of Ennio Morricone – important avant garde work recorded in the mid 60s, just at a point when he was beginning to rise in soundtrack fame! The ensemble is a key Italian modernist group featuring Morricone, Giovanni Piazza, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Gualtiero Branch, Jesus Villa Rojo, and Francesco Evangelisti – mostly classically-trained musicians, but working here in a set of improvisations that are extremely spare, and which are very much at the lower end of the sound spectrum. Many of the sounds on the set are right at the frontiers of hearing – and others, while more present, disappear as quickly as they emerge – further enforcing the mystery and mood of the record. And while the overall style is quite different than Morricone's soundtrack work, the group was clearly a key testing ground for his ideas of sound and space that emerged later. Titles include "Soup", "Scratch", "Settimino", and "Eflot". LP, Vinyl record album

Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNiente ... LP
Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 36.99
An amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of compelling rhythms and odd instrumentation – in ways that are undeniably funky at points, and downright trippy at others! The drumming seems to draw a lot from the changes in German prog – with a very specific Can influence at work – and other elements move in and out of the mix in a really great way – clearly improvisational, but when the groove gets going, it's clear that the players also can't help starting to jam. The record was recorded in 1971, but never issued at the time – and titles include "Niente", "Bambu", "Toms", "Renitenza", "Mattatoio", "Down", "Sieben", and "Bali". LP, Vinyl record album

Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaEroina (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cometa (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About February 7, 2020
Rare work from this legendary Italian improvisational group – a lineup that features famous modernists Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, and Walter Bianchi – as well as soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone! The sounds are quite dark and abstract – often somewhere out in the space of Morricone's more atonal soundtracks from the early 70s, but even looser overall – as you can feel the improvisational energy of the players coming together – feeling out space between spare percussion, strings, and horns. The record actually has one famous funky number – "Haschich", which has this amazing break underneath some off-tuned sitar and other odd noises – but most other tracks are much darker and more outside. Other titles include "Orgasmo", "Eroina", "Aghi", "Warum", "Raptus", and "Stridori" – plus another take on "Haschich". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1967. Sealed ... $59.99
Wild "out there" stuff by this very cool Italian combo that included Ennio Morricone and Frederic Rzewski. The music has lots of processed keyboards and other weird instrumentation, and as a whole is more noisy than the subtitle of the record might imply. Tracks include "Waves", "Lip Service", "Take One", and "Side One, Band Four". Wild wild stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Franco MicalizziAdolescenza Perversa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
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!

Bruno NicolaiDefense De Savoir ... LP
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A cool little soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – penned for a French film instead of an Italian movie – and with a sound that's a bit different than usual! Nicolai makes nice use of some sweeter themes here – a hint of the modes you might find in Michel Legrand or Francis Lai in the 70s – which lightens things up a bit at the start, before some darker, moodier moments creep into the mix – underscoring the film with some more traditional Giallo elements – those tense, spine-tingling styles that Bruno developed with his frequent partner, Ennio Morricone. There's some isolated piano and guitar lines that have a stark, scraping sort of feel – used to great effect on some of the more upbeat numbers – and a few standout bits have electric bass kind of rumbling up from the bottom, which creates a nice sense of urgency. Titles include "La Verite", "Le Pouvoir", "Theme De Juliette", "Sans Espoir", "Concert A La Cour", "Tango Express", and "Tourbillon Final". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Super Trio (Massimo Farao/Ron Carter/Jimmy Cobb)Softly As In A Morning Sunrise (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
There's a great sense of warmth to this album from The Super Trio – one that really seems to come from the bass work of Ron Carter, which is so upfront and present in the recording, it's got us remembering all over again why we love his music so much! Massimo Farao is on piano, and balances out Ron's sound with a lighter, more lyrical touch – but one that swings nicely, too – thanks to the always-great drum contributions of Jimmy Cobb – still a master of the understated swing, even after decades of recording! Titles include the original "Marta", plus "Salina", "Autumn Leaves", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "On A Clear day", and Ennio Morricone's "Once Upon A Time In America" – which sounds surprisingly nice as a jazz tune.

✨✧ Silvano D'AuriaLa Mano Lunga Del Padrino (Long Arm Of The Godfather) (with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This Godfather's got a mighty long arm – and a mighty groovy sound, too – one that includes some great leaping rhythms bubbling up with basslines, and plenty of fantastic vocals from both Edda Ell'Orso and I Cantori Modern! Edda sings in that wordless breezy style she brought to some of her best Ennio Morricone soundtracks – and I Cantori Modern often scat along in a cool harmony-drenched style that's pretty wonderful too – and instrumentation includes a bit of light flute, sweet Hammond, and fuzzy guitar – in a very nice blend that only gets stronger on the mostly instrumental tracks that dominate the second half of the record! Titles include "Raffica", "Fuga In La Minore", "Sabina", "Streap", and "Porto Cammelli". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bruno NicolaiFemmine Insaziabili (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Spettro (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever from Bruno Nicolai – a set that has him using all the genius he gleaned from his musical partner Ennio Morricone – then stepping off into some great territory of his own! Some numbers have a Morricone-like blend of wordless female vocals and bossa-styled grooves – others have a more punched-up mix of jazz and mod elements, almost with the power that Nicolai brought to some of his action or western scores, but set to groovier territory! Production is sublime – and there's lots of numbers that are every bit as on-point as his music for Eugenie Sade 70 – on titles that include "Autostop", "I Want It All", "Notte Inquieta", "Autostrada Per Los Angeles", "Nostalgia Di Un Incontro", "Dondolo", "Drive In", and "Senza Titolo".

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest soundtracks of the 60s – presented here in a massive package that brings forth a wealth of never-reissued music! Piero Piccioni really hit his stride for the music to this film that was directed by its star – the effervescent Alberto Sordi – a fantastic send-up on the London scene of the time, set to a range of modly romping tunes! Piccioni handled the main music – often with loads of great piano and organ lines – but there's also some great vocal moments too, sung by Lydia MacDonald, Julie Rogers, and even Sordi – and the record also features a few touches from I Cantori Moderni, and a bit of music from Ennio Morricone too. Titles include the wonderful "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in London – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Titles include a few versions of "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". 3CD set features the full original album in both mono and stereo – plus 71 bonus tracks from the film score!

The styles here are steeped in the best Italian soundtrack modes from years back – cool keyboards, fuzzy organ, funky basslines, and lots of offbeat instrumentation that really transforms the tunes – almost as if someone like Piero Umiliani or Ennio Morricone recorded a whole album of Christmas instrumentals! The sound is perfect – even better than you might suspect from the cover – and you can take it from us, as we're not easily fooled by "fake" retro projects – and really tip our hat to these guys for getting the instrumentation, arrangements, and production just right.

✨✧ VariousVault Of Horror – The Italian Connection 2 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD & print) ... LP
Demon (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The vaults of horror here are open pretty darn wide – so much so that they run a span from the initial years of Italian giallo films, all the way through some of the more electric slasher and shock films of the 80s! As with the first film, the package goes way past the obvious – and instead does a great job of pulling together tracks that really show the full scope of Italian horror – from atonal orchestrations through more small group electronics – with plenty of bits of rock-influenced modes along the way! The set features 20 tracks in all, wrapped up in a wonderfully vivid cover – and titles include "You Are Not The Same" by Fabio Frizzi, "Il Paese Del Sesso Selvaggio" by Sergio Patucchi, "Ecologia Del Delitto" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Make Love On The Wing" by Nico Fidenco, "Savana" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, "Conquest" by Claudio Simonetti, "Valley" by Bill Wyman, "Sudden Death" by Carlo Maria Cordio, "Satanik Seq 7" by Roberto Pregadio, "La Lucertola" by Ennio Morricone, "John Dalton Street" by Guliano Sorgini, "Opera Theme" by Bill Wyman & Terry Taylor, "Lady Frankenstein Seq 1" by Alessandro Alessandroni, and "Arizona Mountain" by Francesco De Masi.

The great title track to one of the best scores from Italian maestro Stelvio Cipriani – a tune that bursts out with funky drums that kick into soaring orchestrations, topped by this wicked female vocal from Olympia – whose singing style is as vibrant as the instrumentation! Edda Dell'Orso sings on "Sophisticated Shake" on the flipside – but in that weird breathy style that she used with Ennio Morricone – more voice as sound than as lyrics, next to a hip-stepping bass and cool echoey piano! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)
