Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)L'Amica (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Luiz Bacalov – a set that's filled with sex and slink, but which also has a great sense of groove as well – blending bossa jazz, mod moments, and all the best styles of the late 60s Italian scene! The music is mostly acoustic, but has a really great way of using sustained notes on flute – which creates this dreamy vibe that's almost electric, especially when offset by acoustic basslines, percussion, and piano – all used at a level that's right up there with the best from Morricone or Trovajoli at the time! There's also wonderful drifting vocals in the mix – courtesy of Nora Orlandi – and titles include "Round Nassau", "Swingin Easy In Tanganika", "Rio Zona Sul", "L'Amica", and "Taxi Cab 67". Features two bonus tracks – "L'Amica (ripresa)" and "The Bitter Truth (inst)". LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio CiprianiRhythmical Movement (with bonus download) ... LP
Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches some of Cipriani's best film score material from the late 70s from the keyboard-heavy cuts that he used in both love and comedy scores, to some of the more upbeat disco sounds he'd bring out for other films – although the album's pretty darn upbeat overall, and definitely lives up to the movement-heavy promise of the title! Most tracks are instrumental, with nice funky currents and keyboards – and titles include "What Can I Do", "Brasil Connection", "Living & Loving", "Don't Tamper With My Things", "Burglar Proof", "Percussion Gun", and "Chicago USA". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download! Corner of cover has a very slight bump from shipping – but a very minor issue.)

Riccardo LucianiInchiesta Sul Mondo ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. Sealed 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
A sound library set, but one that goes deeper than usual – as the whole project was put together as sort of a concept record, with thoughts on the contemporary scene of the 70s! The two records each have a different title and theme – Stati D'Animo and Diganosi Ecologia – but the musical presentation is very unified, with a darkly brooding blend of electronics, strings, and a few other acoustic elements – used in ways that maybe begin in the harsher side of the Morricone spectrum, but also flows to some warmer moments too. The music's not that far off from the experimental side of Egisto Macchi – but also has more of a soundtrack appeal at some moments – maybe for a dark 70s documentary on pollution or outer space. Titles include "Lo Statico", "L'Oscuro", "Timpan", "L'Astrale", "Interrogativo", "Terra Di Nessuno", "Vita Di Nomadi", and "Tragedia Ecologica". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl, with download.)

Egisto MacchiBiologia Animale Et Vegetale (180 gram pressing – 3LP set with download) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy 3LP ... $24.99
Not the fauna and flora you might expect from the title – and instead, a collection that's every bit as heady as some of Egisto Macchi's other sound library work from the time – very offbeat, very unusual, and pretty downright spooky! The sounds here are almost more what you'd expect from the Italian experimental scene on Cramps Records than the usual sound library material – as Macchi works his instruments in so many different ways and modes, often getting weird tones from a piano, making percussion sound coldly melodic, and working in all these other soundshapes that create a nice sense of mystery and tension! And throughout, there's always a return to tunefulness – a sense of melody that can come through the darkness, sometimes at the weirdest moments – and further enforce our sense that Macchi is one of the true geniuses of this overlooked scene. Titles include "Germi", "Dinosauri", "Microscopio II", "Boscimani", "Stadi Embrionali", "Cuore", "Plancton", and "Rane E Rospi". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download! Limited to 600 copies – and on heavy vinyl!)

Egisto MacchiMessico (with bonus download) ... LP
Ayna/Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the more ambitious projects to come from the Ayna studio of Egisto Macchi – not some of the shorter selections that he brought to his sound library material, but a series of longer compositions that have a beautifully seductive feel! The works use light strings, isolated percussion moments, and more obscure sonic elements to create a haunting tapestry of sound – maybe a bit minimalist in conception, but handled with a richness of feeling that ties the music much more strongly to the Italian soundtrack scene – although with end results that are maybe even more developed than some of those recordings. Titles include "Canto Messicano", "Civilta Maya", "Danza Messicana", "Vaqueros", and "Por Una Mujer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered limited edition of 600 – includes download!)

Egisto MacchiViolenza (with bonus download) ... LP
Ayna/Cinedelic (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of those records that reminds us that Egisto Macchi was way more than just a standard sound library composer – as, although he often worked in that format, he had ideas that were much more in keeping with some of the larger compositional territory of Italian modernists of the 60s and 70s – as you'll hear in this unique little set! The music might be sold under the theme of violence, but the sounds within are quite different than the usual cop and crime music – especially on the first half, which features two longer compositions that build in a mini-orchestral way – one using some themes that almost have a Latin American echo, the other with a more strongly percussive orientation. Side two features shorter tracks, most a bit dramatic – but hardly the random acts of violence you might expect – thanks to amazing percussion from Vittorio Ferrari! Titles include "Paura Sulla Citta", "L'Assassinio Dei Rosemberg", "Aggressivita", "Nazisti", "Fascisti", and "Violenza Meccanica". LP, Vinyl record album

Nora OrlandiIl Dolce Corpo Di Debora (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A beautiful bossa soundtrack from late 60s Italy – somewhat obscure, but easily right up there with some of the better-known classics from the time! The score is awash in bossa-styled rhythms, and features a fair bit of organ, vibes, and piano – often used sparely and spaciously to create a mood that's far dreamier than the tense setting of the film – a really magical approach that's filled with soft colors and wonderful tones throughout! Nora Orlandi sings beautiful wordless vocals on the leadoff track – which is almost a Rosemary's Baby-styled number – and Paolo Orlandi sings in a straighter style on one other track. Titles include "Marcel Deborah", "Night Story", "Ossessione", "Molto Tempo Fa", "I Robot", "Ginevra", "Croisette", "La Bandita", and "Musica Bionda". LP features 4 bonus tracks too!

Robby PoitevinTecnica Di Un Omicidio/Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
Rare work from composer Robby Poitevin – pulled from two groovy Italian films of the late 60s! Tecnica Di Un Omicidio is a great action score, put together with a heavy dose of jazz – great vibes, flute, and plenty of other horns – blasting out with a hip style over lots of tight percussion – almost in the manner of spy films from the time, but with a lot more complexity at points, almost the depths of a drama, without any of the sleepy moments. The film's represented by 12 tracks here, all of them pretty great, and pretty different from each other – a really fresh batch of music that includes "Alba A New York", "Central Station", "My Man", "L'Ultima Vittima", "Bassifondi", "Clint In Agguato", and "Tecnica Di Un Omicido". Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling is a great score to a hip 60s crime thriller – served up with a mod mix of bossa nova, jazz, and some groovier bits – really great music that easily rivals the late 60s greatness of better-known Italian composers like Armando Trovajoli or Piero Piccioni! Some tunes are upbeat and driving – almost in a mod mode – while others have a dreamier style that makes cool use of organ and voice, the latter of which is handled by I Cantori Moderni on two tracks, and Gianfranca Montedoro on one more. There's an odd sort of feel to the music, in ways that have the same sort of charm as the great score for The Tenth Victim, especially in the use of organ. Titles include "Allucianzione", "One More Step", "Alba A San Francisco", "Tema Dell'Ispettore Sterling", and "Adesso Che Hai Vent'Anni". CD

✨✧ Trans Europa ExpressIl Gatto Dagli Occhi Di Giada ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual group that we only know from this one Italian soundtrack – and a combo who's not nearly as electronic as you might guess from their Kraftwerk-sounding name! Instead, the approach here is a bit like that of Goblin on their horror scores from the same time – a style that uses keyboards, guitar, and bass that come from a more progressive music background than other Italian soundtrack composers – but which also comes off here with a lot less of the jamming modes that you'd hear in Goblin's work. Instead, the overall sound is relatively laidback – lessons learned from the great Italian composers of the early 70s, especially in their balance of subtle and more experimental sounds – all poised nicely to build over the course of the film. There's some great use of electric bass here – often quite spare and pulsating! 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David H Kimball (Peymont)Atmosfere No 1/2 (with bonus download) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Weird electronics, spacey trumpet, and lots more going on too – all in a set that seems to bridge the gap between early analogue electronic experiments of the postwar years, and some of the ambient sounds to come at the end of the 70s! The music here is never too obtuse, but often does move past simple tunefulness – really exploring space with waves of electric sound, but with focused statements that give each track an individual spirit – and some of our favorite moments even move into territory of early 80s German groups, like Der Plan or Pyrolator, but with a sound here that's a decade ahead of its time! In keeping with the "atmospheres" title, you might think of each track as a visit to a tiny musical planet – with names that include "Congresso A Babilonia", "Inchiesta Sul Futuro", "Sogno Dionisiaco", "Sesso E Droga", "LSD Viaggio Nel Passato", "Incubo Di Isabel", "Venezia Oggi", "Apres L'Amour", and "Meditazione Yoga".
