Ennio MorriconeBig Gundown ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Sealed ... $29.99
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 MorriconeCanone Inverso (180 gram pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Monte Stella (Italy), 2000. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
A later Ennio Morricone film score – one done around the turn of this century, and with a nicely understated vibe that marks most of the maestro's music from the previous decade! The score features solo piano and violin – the latter by a few different musicians – but almost always presented with that sense of spaciousness that makes Morricone so great – maybe graced more with the sentimentality of his final years, than some of the darker, atonal styles of the 70s. Titles include "Songs That My Mother Taught Me", "Corsa", "Avvolgente", "Elmetti Di Fuoco", "All'Aperto", "Golidari", and "Capriccio La Cacci". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeFaccia A Faccia (180 gram red & black marbled vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Monte Stella (Italy), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
A wonderful western score from Ennio Morricone – less typical than some of his classics, and with a really unique sort of sound! Many of the numbers here have a really low-rumbling quality – sounds that don't blast out with action or violence, but which emerge slowly from the lower end of the sound spectrum – almost at the point of silence at times, then rising up with a more sparkling sort of quality. Instrumentation changes a bit as the set goes on – and the best tunes are those in which the actual instruments are really hart to figure out more just sounds rumbling around than individual isolated elements we can recognize. LP features 20 tracks in all – including "Ivoluzione", "Tensione Sottintesa", "Disperata Nostaglia", "Seconda Concludsione", "Preannuncio", "Misterioso E Ostinato", and "Attimi Irripetibili".

Ennio MorriconeGrazie Zia ... LP
CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

Ennio MorriconeIl Prefetto Di Ferro (picture disc) ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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 MorriconeLe Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1970. Near Mint- ... $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

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 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)... $28.99
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.

Ennio MorriconeSpasmo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tiger Bay (Italy), 1974. Sealed Gatefold ... $19.99
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 Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 30.00
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

Ennio Morricone/Alessandro AlessandroniIl Giro Del Mondo Degli Innamorati Di Peynet (180 gram pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
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".

Ennio Morricone/Andrea GuerraLa Domenica Specialmente ... CD
GDM/Beat (Italy), 1991. Used ... $9.99
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".

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)... $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".

RCA/BMG (Brazil), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing record – one that stands as one of Chico Buarque's greatest from the 70s! The set was recorded in Italy in 1970 – and features Chico singing lead vocals over backings handled by Ennio Morricone – all in a style that's a perfect blend of MPB with the best elements of the Italian scene of the time! The songs are all originals written by Chico – and have a light and dreamy samba/bossa feel, one that's inflected by the off-beat orchestral style of Morricone, and supported by vocals from I Cantori Moderni. The feel is halfway between Chico's work on RGE and some of the dreamier Morricone soundtracks of the time – and it's a wonderful thing to have a strong male lead vocal over backings from Morricone – a really rare thing for the time, with results that are tremendous. Titles include "Rotativa", "Samba E Amore", "Nicanor", "Tu Sei Una Di Noi", "In Te", "Ed Ora Dico Sul Serio", and "Quete E Quelle". CD

Warner, 1977. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to orchestrations that nobody else could touch – a redemptive sound which is then mixed with some much darker elements underneath – including some rough percussion, spooky voices, and other earthy touches that really stir things up. In fact, the overall effect of the record might scare you a lot more than the film – especially if you played it alone at home, late at night, with the lights off, and your head spinning round! Titles include "Great Bird Of The Sky", "Little Afro-Flemish Mass", "Regan's Theme", "Pazuzu", "Night Flight", and "Exorcism". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1966. Very Good ... 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

A lesser-known soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – but one of his grooviest moments of the late 60s! The score is a great blend of heavy and light – and blends together that wonderful floating Morricone style with some heavier, fuzzier tunes that show the late 60s period of the film – all making for a really fleshed-out sound, of the sort that you're usually likely to hear in some of Morricone's classics! The album includes one great number that's got an extended sitar solo, and a few more with hard-edged male vocals by Patrick Samson that almost feel like late 60s French pop!

Cineploit (Austria), 2017. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
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.

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". LP, Vinyl record album

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!

RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
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

Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

The approach on most tracks is spare and moody – using a lot of harpsichord over light orchestrations – and going for a tense feel that matches the spirit of the horror film, but which also has some surprisingly sweet and sexy moments from time to time. The reissue features lots of short tracks – with titles tha tinclude "The Mother's Dress", "Murder", "Sapphic Love", "Umiliations 1", "Flo's Escape/Confessions", "Deadly Race", "Macabre Discoveries", "Spied Lovers/Santana", and "To Kill & To Wall Up In The Cellar". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99
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! CD

Super Trio (Massimo Farao/Ron Carter/Jimmy Cobb)Softly As In A Morning Sunrise ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

VariousB-Music – Drive In, Turn On, Freak Out ... CD
B- Music (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $26.99
Funky psychedelia and multicultural cosmic grooves – late 60s & early 70s discoveries collected and put together by a team of some of the deepest diggers of boundary busting pulpy material out there –the vital B-Music/Finders Keepers team! Here they've delivered one of our favorite B- compilations yet, really a mindblowing set of tunes. The sounds are far flung and from all over the world – but they share a common trait in that no matter how far out a tune might be, they all have a furious core groove. Wild cinematic soundtrack bits, spacey early prog, freaky folk, buzzing guitar jams, spiraling keyboard and hard driving funk tunes of all kinds – obscure stuff from Turkey, China, France, Europe, Japan, Poland, and the wilds of the UK & US scenes – amazing stuff all around! Nearly half of these nuggets were selected by B- resident geniuses Andy Votel and Dom Thomas, and the others chosen by influential guest DJ, producers & tastemakers including David Holmes, Lee Janda, Cherrystones, Chris McBride & others. 21 tracks in all: "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" by The Melodians, "Be Quite" (sic) by Jean Jacques Dexter, "Green Mountain, Jade Valley" by Cheung Kam Chun, "Arkham" by Spectre, "Bebek" by Sevil & Ayla, "Caballo Salvaje" by Unidades, "Fire" by Pegasus, "South Indian Line" by Jan Jankeje, "Guerra E Pace, Pollo E Brace" by Ennio Morricone, and more, plus the bonus track "Mera Mehbob Hai" by Nahid Akhtar.

✨✧ VariousBarry 7's Connectors 2 – 17 Rare Italian Library Tracks ... CD
Lo Recordings (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $12.99
Wild funky grooves – and even crazier than the first volume! The set follows the format of the first, in that tracks are selected by the enigmatic Barry 7 – but the source material is completely different, making for a very unique sound. This time around, Barry's dipped into the rich catalog of Italian soundtrack label CAM – one of Italy's greatest sources of work for film scores, and home to plenty of wonderful tunes over the years! Tracks here are a mad blend of guitars, keyboards, voices, orchestrations, rhythms, electronics, and strange instrumentation – as groovy and cool as they are upbeat and funky. Many of the titles are unfamiliar to our ears, and they sound even better laid back to back in this great-looking package! Titles include "Margaret" by Giuseppe De Luca, "Iniziazone 72" by Ennio Morricone, "Motivi Psichedelici" by Daniele Patucchi, "Sisy" by Giampiero Boneschi, "Rio A Los Angeles" by Giuseppe De Luca, "Dies Irae Psichedelico" by Ennio Morricone, "Saturns Ambush" by Giampiero Boneschi, "Omicidio Per Vocazione" by Stefano Torossi, and "Secondo Rito" by Ennio Morricone.

VariousKill Bill Vol 2 – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Maverick, 2004. Used ... $3.99
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.

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiFemina Ridens/Sophisticated Shake ... 7-inch
CAM/Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Benedetto GhigliaSalvare La Faccia ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool Italian soundtrack from the 60s – one that's filled with plenty of "shake" and "psichedelico" tracks – which make for lots of beautiful moments! The music here is on that cusp between spooky and groovy that Ennio Morricone did so well at the time – handled in a more obscure mode by Benedetto Ghiglia, who also brings a variety of different styles to the mix – so that the songs have an explosive sort of power as they step between one tune and the next! The main "Love Your Neighbor" theme is sung with an English langue lyric at the start, and there's a few more wordless vocalizations from the great I Cantori Modern – amidst fuzzy guitars, odd keyboards, and other groovy elements. CD features 29 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ 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!

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Peggy MarchIf You Loved Me – RCA Recordings From Around The World 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
