Franco BixioA Pugni Nudi ... CD
Cinevox/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which has always got an undercurrent of funk as well – unfolding beautifully through the use of electric bass at the the bottom of most tracks, even some of the larger arrangements. Some of the best numbers have very cool keyboard or piano – ringing out with a cool compressed sound that's mighty nice – and a few cuts even have some nice funky breaks as well! CD presents the rare original album, with unissued bonus tracks – and titles include "With Bare Fist", "A Fist In The Thought", "Noble Impulse", "Dog's Hearth", "With Clenched Fist", and "The Hunt Down". CD
Also available A Pugni Nudi (180 gram pressing) ... LP 24.99

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaMagnetic Systems ... CD
Cinevox/Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A tremendous trio from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 70s – Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – all great talents on their own, but a real powerhouse of grooves when they got together on work like this! The Bixio-Fizzi-Tempera name always meant something extra-groovy on a record – either an extra-funky soundtrack with lots of weird touches, or the kind of cool Italian single that might be somewhere between sound library funk and more progressive material – a really rich array of sounds that came from the trio during their years working together in the mid 70s! This package brings together some of the best cuts from those days, with an extra special Finders Keepers/Andy Votel ear for the weirdest and most unusual sounds – which creates an album that's plenty funky, but in ways that are very different from the usual US or European styles of the time. Basslines, heavy drums, spacey keyboards, and odd guitar sounds abound – and titles include "Electronic Sound", "Avangiu", "Godzilla", "Allucinazione Mistiche", "Death's Song", "Escape", "Vai Gorilla", "Night Club Dance", "The Hunt Down", and "Concessioni Naturali".

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaVai Gorilla (The Hired Gun) ... CD
Cinevox/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99
Fantastic funk from the Italian scene – penned for a cop movie that was also known over here as The Hired Gun! The style here is even more of a cut above than usual for Italian crime – really on a par with the best American work of the period, particularly some of the extra-hip stuff you might hear on TV – like some of those gems from Sunday Night Mystery Movie that would blend sophisticated strings, offbeat orchestrations, and some great funky basslines and keys! The keyboards are especially nice – snaking through over these bass bits that roll out wonderfully and there's some moody woodwind moments that further deepen the sound in ways you wouldn't expect. Plus, the whole package is totally great – full, well-written notes in English – almost at a Film Score Monthly level! CD features 15 tracks from the film – plus 5 more bonus cuts from the vaults. CD
(Very unique artwork too – very cool!)

Stelvio CiprianiMark Il Poliziotto ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $15.99
Funky Cipriani – and one of the best 70s soundtracks by the amazing Italian composer! The score is for a mid 70s cop film, and it's got a sound that blows away even most American funky cop soundtracks – using wah wah guitar to the Nth degree, in order to super-charge the massively funky rhythms on the set – and somehow managing to produce the other instruments in the set with this weird echo that sort of makes them jump between the speakers! There's incredible off-kilter piano, lots of spacey horns, and even a bit of electric harpsichord, which really sounds amazing. As funky as it is brilliant, and filled with amazing tracks that really blow us away – titles that include "Mark Il Poliziotto", "La Fine Di Cobb", "Lei E La Madre", "Bambole Di Droga", "Mercato", "Kruber Il Tedesco", "Tenerezza", and "Porte Chiuse".

Gianfranco Di StefanoShango – La Pistola Infallibile ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. Used ... $12.99
A cool little western score – served up with a great mix of dark moods and lighter touches – all composed and conducted by Gianfranco Di Stefano, with a sound that's a bit more complex than the usual soundtrack of the time! There's less of the driving western modes than you might expect – and instead, instrumentation often comes from gentle guitar and flute interplay, backed by some fuller orchestrations at points – but often used with a nice sense of spareness, yet in ways that are quite different than some of Morricone's film scores. There's a bit of keyboards at points – although never that much – and the CD reissue also contains a rare 11 minute suite of outtakes – adding nearly 50% more music to the original score! Titles include "Pista Di Fuoco", "Shango La Pistola Infallibile", "Siesta Siesta", "Chitarra Triste E Sola", "Jeff Bloom", "Scuardi Violenti", and "To Welcome". CD

Keith Emerson/GoblinLa Chiesa (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1989. New Copy ... $15.99
A late 80s horror film from Dario Argento – scored by 70s prog giants Keith Emerson and Goblin! Emerson and Goblin divide up the music equally – Keith with more solo keyboard cuts that sometimes show off his virtuosity, Goblin often with tunes that are moodier and more spacious, yet still pretty darn keyboard-driven too! And the keys used by both artists is very much in an 80s mode – more digital than analogue, yet still used with a lot of the phrasing you might expect from their older material – and not nearly as cold as some other 80s keyboard work in horror films. Titles include "The Church", "La Chiesa", "Suspence Chiesa 2", "The Possession", "Lotte", "Prelude 24", and "The Church Revisited". CD features some bonus tracks, too! CD

Gianni FerrioLos Desperados – Quei Disperati Che Puzzano Di Sudore E Di Morte ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. Used ... $14.99
A western soundtrack with a different twist – one that definitely shares some of the darker aspects of the crime score work by Gianni Ferrio! There's a few hard-driving themes, but most of the tracks are pretty spare, short, and moody – almost melancholy at points, with great spare instrumental lines on guitar or flute, occasionally augmented with a bit of strings – but in ways that differ from more familiar western modes. Surprisingly rich stuff – and titles include "Uno Dopo L'Altro", "Notturno A Toiuca", "Oltre Il Confine", "Que Disperati", and "Alba Senza Speranza". CD

Fabio FrizziSuperfantagenio (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox/Digitmovies (Italy), 1986. Used ... $8.99
Bud Spencer plays a hefty, shaggy genie in this mid 80s Italian comedy – and Fabio Frizzi serves up a pretty great score to match that odd performance! The music is a mix of 80s film modes and exotic themes – all put together with a very whimsical feel overall, with instrumentation that blends keyboards and strings, and a few occasional beats. Deodato wrote the title theme – "The Genie" – an 80s groove-styled number with some soulful chorus vocals – and other tunes include "Il Genio Appare", "Ommaggio A Scott", "Swing Classic", "Kid Lger", "Cinque Elicotteri", and "Un Lungo Abbraccio". CD features 2 bonus tracks from the film Vieni Avanti Cretino! CD

Ennio MorriconeAnche Se Volessi Lavorare Che Faccio? (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $15.99
Light and groovy Morricone – the kind we really like! The album's one of the lesser-remembered ones in Ennio's body of work, but it's got some tremendous cuts that rank with our favorite soundtrack work of the time! The set's got a number of haunting mellow tunes – the sort that drift in air and hang in space with a slightly moving sort of feel – but then it's got others that kick up a groove, and even get a bit funky – adding in strange elements, like the odd whistle by Alessandroni, or some weirdly-pitched vocal parts that are even better! Great throughout – and the kind of totally fresh Morricone soundtrack that moves past all the cliches, and still makes you realize that there's a lot of great work still to be discovered by the maestro! Titles include "Anche Se Volessi", "Anghingo", "Ora A Te Poi A Me", "Tramonto", "Ora Pro Nobis", and "Lei Se Ne More". CD features 4 bonus tracks, too! CD

Ennio MorriconeL'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
A legendary score by Il Maestro from 1969, and the kind of work that shows the influence he had on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds that feel almost electronic at times. The whole thing's a work of incredibly subtle beauty, with a style and feeling that will seep into your brain and haunt you for days. If you've cut your teeth getting into Italian soundtracks through the "Easy" series – check this one out, and move up to a more sophisticated (yet still pretty darn groovy) level. Titles include "Piume De Cristallo", "Corsa Sui Tetti", "Se Sei Stonato", "Violenza Inattesa", "Silenzio Nel Caos", and "Svolta Drammatica". CD features 10 bonus tracks in stereo! CD

Ennio MorriconeMetti Una Sera A Cena ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
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. This expanded edition includes a wealth of bonus material – alternate versions, reprises, a brief radio spot and other previously unreleased bits! Titles include "Metti, Una Sera A Cena", "Sauna", "Nina", "Ric Happening", "Croce D'Amore", and "Terrazza Vuota". Supplementary tracks include "Metti, Una Sera A Cena" (uncut version), "Uno Che Grida Amore" (original main titles), "Terrazza Vuota (film version)", "Ric Happening" (film version), "Hurry To Me" and more. 20 tracks in all!

Riz OrtolaniLa Vergine Di Norimberga (aka Horror Castle) (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1963. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99
One of the lesser-known 60s soundtrack moments from Riz Ortolani – one of the first Italian film composers to break out on an international scale – and a great little set that really offers up some great aspects of his talents! The film's a dark horror movie from the mid 60s, scored by Ortolani with a style that's tense, dramatic, and relatively moody – less of the brightness of his bigger hits, especially his comedies – and almost a mode that seems to set the scene for later Italian work to come. Some passages feature breakout jazzier bits, which make for a nice change – but the overall score is mostly orchestral and tightly scripted – moving with a lot of dramatic flourishes to fit the scenes in the film – on titles that include "Morte Violenta", "Atroci Sospetti", "Il Dubbio Di Mary", "Una Notte Di Terrore", and "Irrealta". 2CD version features the 13 track original album – plus 24 more bonus tracks, all stereo versions from the film!

Piero PiccioniBora Bora (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A great relic from the vinyl years of Cinevox records – a special album that serves up the Piero Piccioni version of the score for the film Bora Bora – later scored by Les Baxter for the US release of the movie! For the set, Piccioni put together these brooding, subtle sounds that are then expanded nicely in orchestrations by Bruno Nicolai – almost a bit fuller on orchestrations than usual for Italian scores of this time – but also filled with cool percussion, exotic instrumentation, and other cool touches that really make the music shine! Titles include "Bora Bora", "Tamoure Festival", "Tamoure Nella Sera", "Eros In Hiro", "Tahiti Tamore", and "I'Sola Incanta". CD features 18 more bonus tracks – alternate versions and more! CD

✨✧ GoblinContamination (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spooky keyboards galore – and a classic horror soundtrack from Goblin – done with just the right blend of rock influences and film score modes to live up to their well-deserved legacy! As on other records, the approach here is more that of a rock group – with guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums as the main instrumentation – but the sound is less jamming and very spare at times – so that these familiar elements get a weird sort of twist, and head into styles that are as tense as some of the images on the screen! A few numbers get slightly funky, but overall things are more in a slasher-type mode – and titles include "The Carver", "Rush", "Time Is On", "Ogre", "Quiet Drops", "Bikini Island", and "Flood". CD

✨✧ GoblinLa Via Della Droga ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very rare material from the legendary Goblin – originally written for an Italian cop thriller in 1977, but never issued to the public until the CD generation! The music ranks with some of the group's best thriller work – with many funky rock passages, plenty of nice keyboards, and lots of fuzzy guitar – but there's also a unique quality that really makes the record stand out, too – maybe some more sensitive passages that have slight Latin touches in the rhythms, and a wider sense of style than just the group's usual jamming – a very hip sound that links this one more to the bigger Italian cop/crime of the period, than some of the other Goblin horror material! In fact, we might well say that this is one of our favorite Goblin records – and one of the funkiest too. New CD version – with more music, and a total of 26 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniScacco Alla Regina (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Piero Piccioni – a really Morricone-like soundtrack, and one that's filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies! There's a lightly gliding feel to the record that's really wonderful – light lines on organ, topped with wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni, alternating to suit the mood of the film, and really bringing out some of the most lovely qualities in Piccioni's music. The tunes unfold gently, like the petals of a flower in soft summer rains – and there's also an undercurrent of darkness at a few points, but one that hardly gets in the way of the breathy, bossa-styled tunes. Titles include "La Torre", "Da Soli In Vacanza", "Capriccio", "The Redcoat", "I Cavalli", and "Nero Piu Bianco". CD also features 11 more bonus tracks – really wonderful alternates of the main tunes, making for a huge 25 track package! CD

✨✧ Piero Umiliani5 Bambole Per La Luna D'Agosto (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines to set the rhythms, and scatting lyrics from I Cantori Moderni – a group who make the act of counting to 5 sound incredibly cool! The feel is quite similar to Umiliani's sublime Sweden Heaven & Hell soundtrack (and at one point, you even can hear the guy with the funny voice from "Mah Na Mah Na") – and the music is exactly the kind of wonderful stuff that first got us digging Italian film scores so many years ago. This great reissue adds a bunch of previously unreleased tracks to the original – a whopping 34 tracks in all – 14 from the original album, plus 3 stereo bonus cuts, and another 17 mono tunes. Titles include a few versions of the main theme, plus "Titoli Coda", "Luna Di Piero Agosto", "Bambola Omicida", "Interludio Azzurro", "Cinque Bambole", and "Danza Jazz Moon". CD
