VariousCinevox – The History Of Soundtrack (Limited Edition 4 CD Box Set) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 4 CDs ... $18.99
Well, the title's a bit ambitious – and sets a goal that it can hardly live up to – but this is still a great little set! This nicely-priced 4CD package isn't really an overview of the "history" of soundtracks – but it is a wonderful collection of Italian cinematic goodies, pulled from the rich catalog of Cinevox Records! The set's divided up into 4 genres – one for each CD – Western, Comedy, Horror, and Police Thrillers. Overall, the work ranges from groovy upbeat tunes, including some excellent bossa-inspired numbers, to spaghetti western classics, to dark and turgid horror themes, and back to a few nice funky tracks. There's a total of 55 tracks in all, and the set features work by soundtrack composers that include Stelvio Cipriani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Riz Ortolani, Goblin, Ennio Morricone, Gianni Ferrio, Augusto Martelli, Carlo Rustichelli, Piero Umiliani, and Francesco De Masi. Most of the work on the set has already been issued in full soundtrack form by Cinevox, but at this price, it's a great way to check out the music! CD

Stelvio CiprianiRage (Fuoco Incrociato) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox/Digitmovies (Italy), 1984. New Copy ... $18.99
Stelvio Cipriani works here in a mode that's maybe a bit more string-heavy than some of his 70s work – but still used with that great sense of compression and space that always makes his music so wonderful! Unlike some other Italian soundtracks of 80s vintage, this one really has the sense of majesty and balance you'd know from the golden years of the film score – no overdone keyboards or fuzzy guitars – and instead these well-done orchestrations that are balanced with more isolated instruments, and set to an especially great main theme that repeats in some wonderful variations throughout. That theme has that really strong Cipriani sense of emotion, but without ever sounding forced at all – and titles include "La Nube Tossica", "Tema Del Viaggio", "Ricerca In Galleria", "Arrivo Alla Base", and "La Base Nucleare". CD features 4 bonus tracks added to the original album! CD
(Limited edition of 300!)

GoblinNonhosonno (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 2000. New Copy ... $14.99
A millennial rebirth for Goblin – and one of the first new records they made since their classic run in Italian cinema – years before their full reformation and international touring fame! The group is reunited here with Dario Argento, with whom they'd worked extensively in the old days on a number of classic horror scores – and the music is heavy on all the things that made Goblin so great in the first place – fuzzy guitar riffs, stark and moody keyboards, and a spacious sense of presentation that the group developed as the years moved on – making even the simplest elements sound even creepier overall. Titles include "The Pig", "Killer On The Train", "Arpeggio", "Ulisse", "Death Farm", "Final White Week", and "Associated Dead". CD

GoblinSuspiria (40th anniversary edition – with DVD & bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy CD & DVD ... $19.99
One of the wildest 70s soundtracks by the Italian horror genius group Goblin – filled with a lot of weird distorted electronics, strangely recorded percussion, and oddly-tuned guitar parts and basslines! The overall feel still has the band's electric slightly funky sound firmly in place, but the presence of strange techniques makes the soundtrack one of their most interesting records – a really compelling chapter that also links their groundbreaking style to later genius from an 80s generation of composers! Claudio Simonetti plays lots of cool keyboards – from organ to moog to mellotron, mini moog, and more – and titles include "Suspiria", "Sighs", "Witch", "Black Forest", "Blind Concert", and "Death Valzer". Plus, this CD features 5 bonus tracks that were not issued at the time of the original release, for a total of 12 cuts that includes "Suspiria", "Witch", "Black Forest/Blind Concert", "Death Valzer", "Markos", and "Opening To The Sighs". Special edition features 9 bonus tracks – and also comes with a DVD film – Suspiria Behind The Soundtrack – which includes interviews with Dario Argento and Goblin. CD

Goblin (as Il Reale Imperio Britannico)Perche Si Uccidono ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A nice lost score by the Italian group Goblin – working here under the "fake" British name of Il Reale Impero Britannica – and maybe sounding even groovier than on some of their other records of the 70s! The Goblin sound is still in place, but there's also maybe more ties to some of the other Italian cop/crime work of the period – with great basslines on a number of cuts, which ups the funk quotient more than usual – and lots more sweet keyboards with a jazzy vibe, and maybe less of the rock touches of other Goblin work – especially since there's none of the trademark Goblin fuzzy guitar riffs on the record! Titles include the funky "Kalu", plus "Epopea", "Edda", "My Damned Shit", "Block", "Dodici E Un Quarto", and "Apoltheke". Nice stuff – and with some nice cop/crime moments! CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeForza G (G-Force) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic album from Italian soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – done for a film titled G-Force, and which deals with jet pilots – but one that moves at a much slinkier pace overall! The tunes here bubble and brew in that early 70s Morricone warmth that we love so much – not the tension of his horror soundtracks, but instead the spacious sounds that he opened on some of his more majestic mondo scores of the time – delivered here with very light strings, floating woodwinds, isolated instrumentation, and slow-stepping piano lines that are really beautiful! The complete charm here is the way in which Morricone can make the music still sound so striking – very different than more common sleepy or romantic modes that are usually at this pace – and instead completely rapturous throughout. There's lots of warm and subtle passages on the album – gently swelling as the tracks move on, occasionally giving way to jazzier numbers, but always retaining the charm of mellow Morricone. Titles include a number of tunes called "Forza G" and "Sospesi Fra Le Nuvole" – and this reissue features new remastering, and a total of 16 tracks in all – including the added "Sospesi Fra Le Nuvole".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIl Gatto ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
Groovy Morricone! This excellent lost score from the mid 70s features some essential tracks for fans of Il Maestro's groovier sounds – as it's filled with nice slightly funky tracks, lots of groovy keyboards and organ, and some other excellent little tracks that have a nice bossa nova groove. This is a great place to start if you're less interested in some of Morricone's darker moments – and if you dig your Italian soundtracks on the easy/groovy side. Titles include "L'Attico Illuminato", "Gli Scatenati", "Terrazza", "Mariangela E La Seduzione", and "Samba In Tribunale". Also includes some great variations on the "Il Gatto" theme, which are more orchestral, but still nice and lovely! 15 cuts in all – with notes, pictures, and unreleased material! CD

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniUno Scandolo Perbene (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1984. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderfully mellow soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a bit different than most of his other work, and handled with this spacious style that often has a lead instrumental solo sliding out in front of soft orchestrations! The mood is sometimes somber – maybe not as sexy as you'd guess from the image on the cover – and the style's a bit like some of those soundtracks that Ennio Morricone was doing around the same time, especially as his work took him into more of a global cinematic scale! Some of our favorite tracks have a lead trumpet or woodwind – and titles include "Amnesia", "Uno Scandalo Perbene", "Interrogatorio", "Momenti Felici", "Meditazione", and "Ritrovarsi Ancora". CD also features 11 previously unissued bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliLa Stanza Del Vescovo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A slinky score from Armando Trovajoli – done for a film that was also titled The Bishop's Bedroom – a place where some of the slinky action in the film must have taken place! There's an occasional period vibe to the music – a few older jazz touches here and there – but most of the music is in a warmer mode that fits the 70s direction of the film, with swelling strings, and a fair bit of lead piano lines that step out warmly over the rest of the music, which sound especially nice when the keyboards are electric – as they stand in stark contrast to the more acoustic swing modes. Titles include "Lady In Black", "Girl On Board", "Easy Lisico", "Love Love", and "Ricordi Nell'Armadio". CD also features 7 bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeLa Moglie Piu Bella ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This Morricone soundtrack features some of the strangest instrumentation we've ever heard him use – and some of the most beautiful, too! The orchestrations are pretty heavy with some wild use of a mouth harp – not making slow quiet noises, as in some of the bigger westerns, but just going crazy, and making bigger, springy noises! These are juxtaposed with haunting, dark moody instrumental passages, some with floating piano or harp – in true Morricone tradition – and others with lovely wordless vocals. Unique in the Morricone catalog to say the least, and an essential slice of his work at its most adventurous! Tracks include the original "La Moglie Piu Bella" single versions and many more variations, plus "Tema di Francesa". CD

✨✧ Piero UmilianiLa Morte Bussa Due Volte (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from one of the grooviest soundtrack composers ever! At the end of the 60s, Piero Umiliani wrote some of the best film scores to come out of the Italian scene – and this little gem, long out of print, is certainly one of them! The album's got some beautifully jazzy numbers – touched by all the right elements of whimsy and sexiness that make Umiliani's other work so great – and the short little tracks on the album offer up a blend of slinky themes that intertwine wonderfully, moving from groove to sleaze, but always handled with the highest of class and care! Titles include "Trappola Sentimentale", "Crystal", "To Seek", "Consequence", "Un Posto Per Un Addio", "Continuita", and the sublime "Bob & Helen", which has been a favorite of remixers for years! CD features 13 bonus tracks – for a total of 26 numbers in all! CD

✨✧ GoblinPatrick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet guitars, creepy keyboards, and even a bit of funk from time to time – all wrapped up beautifully in this vintage horror soundtrack from Goblin! There's a bit less rock here than on other Goblin albums – and instead, there's almost a John Carpenter-like sense of spareness that comes through especially well in the keyboards – with some great moody numbers that step along in a slowly-building style, almost like the best of 70s cop show work – moving the group past some of their more rockish or jamming postures. The spare, minimal approach only seems to make things spookier than before – and titles include "Vibrazioni", "Metamorfosi", "Visioni", "Patrick", and "Transmute". CD also features 10 bonus tracks too! CD
