Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaMagnetic Systems ... CD
Cinevox/Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
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. Used ... $11.99
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!)

Sandro Brugnolini & Luigi MalatestaGungala La Pantera Nuda ... CD
Cinevox/Saimel (Spain), 1968. Used ... $14.99
A nude panther? This one already had our attention with the title – and once we heard the music, things got even better – a very groovy blend of jazz and 60s elements by Sandro Brugnolini & Luigi Malatesta – put together in modes that rival some of the better-known Italian scores of the time! The leadoff tune "Gungala" features great English vocals from Pat Starke, alongside some cool-stepping organ – and that organ returns often on other instrumental tracks, almost creating this Piero Piccioni-like mood amidst the strings and some of the more exotic instrumentation! Even when the orchestrations are a bit more conventional, they're still quite striking – and the score is one of those great Italian 60s efforts that seems to offer up new flavors at every twist and turn. Titles include "Il Serpente", "Gungala Serenata", "Tam Tam Marimba", "Gungala Road", "July", "Sabbie Mobili", and "Afro Free". CD

GoblinAmo Non Amo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $15.99
An usual step for Goblin, but a great one too – a record that has the group turning their soundtrack style towards more romantic modes – yet still with a wonderful mix of keyboards and guitar! The sound is all studio – guitars jamming with a clean sound, keyboards bouncing over well-contained drum fills – the whole thing sounding like a cross between late 70s CTI, smoother George Benson, and some of the mainstream soundtrack work the group had inspired at the time. Carlo Pennisi adds in a bit of extra guitar – more than usual for the group – and titles include "Funky Top", "Amo Non Amo", "Both Two", and "Maniera" – and the set features a number of versions of "Amo Non Amon" that weren't on the original LP.

GoblinAwakening (Profondo Rosso/Roller/Suspiria/Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarozzo Mark/Zombi/Tenebre/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Cinevox/Bella Casa (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 6CD ... $38.99
An amazing run of Italian soundtracks from Goblin – six different albums, each packaged in tiny LP-styled sleeves, with lots of bonus tracks too! The work here is wonderful – really genre-defining grooves that moved horror soundtracks into the realm of rock in the 70s – using wicked guitar lines, sinister keyboards, and brooding bass to really set this spare and extremely effective groove – an approach that John Carpenter used to greater fame here in the US – but which was virtually invented by Goblin! Each album comes in a Cinevox label record sleeve – and the box features Profondo Rosso (with 27 bonus tracks!), Roller (with 2 bonus tracks), Suspiria (with 5 bonus tracks), Il Fantastico Viaggio Del Bagarosso Mark (with 1 bonus track), Zombi (with 7 bonus tracks), and Tenebre (with 11 bonus tracks). Box is nice and sturdy, and comes with a booklet of notes too! CD

GoblinNotturno (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99
A nice set of crime/cop themes by the great Goblin – scored for this obscure thriller from 1982! Some of the music's a lot more funky than some of Goblin's other scores, with loads of nice keyboards, basslines, and some funky drums – and despite the date of the film, the music feels more like it was lifted from some mid 70s cop show on TV, than some of the stiffer, colder styles that were coming into play on other 80s soundtracks. There's also still a few moody atmospheric pieces that are like the group's other work, but the overall mix is pretty nice – and there's a total of 14 tracks that includes "Nocturne", "Bass Theme", "Landing Strip", "Est", and "Helycopter".

Goblin (Simonetti/Morante/Pignatelli)Tenebre (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Cinevox/Nexus (Japan), 1982. Used ... $18.99
Not really a Goblin soundtrack, so much as a soundtrack project by some of the band's members – Claudio Simonetti, Massimo Morante, and Fabio Pignatelli – but still a nice one, with most of the group's classic elements firmly in place! The score's a great counterpart to this very odd Dario Argento film about a novelist turned murderer – and it's filled with lots of spacey keyboards, fuzzy guitars, and the kind of weird atmospheric bits you'd expect from an early 80s horror film! Titles include "Slow Cirkus", "Lesbo", "Flashing", "Tenebre", "Waiting Death", and "Jane Mirror Theme". CD

Angelo LavagninoWestern Film Music Of Angelo F Lavagnino (Johnny West/Requiem Per Un Gringo/Uno Straniero A Paso Bravo) ... CD
Cinevox/Saimel (Italy), 1965/1968/1969. Used ... $14.99
A trio of western soundtracks from composer Angelo Lavagnino – one of the lesser-known composers of the Spaghetti years of the genre! First up is Johnny West – a soundtrack represented here by 11 tracks that range from more typical western themes to mellower, more introspective numbers – a few of which have some use of electric bass or organ in the mix! The overall sound is quite weird – almost sci-fi on a few of the more striking numbers – and titles include "Main Titles Theme", "Love Theme Instrumental", "Saloon", "Dramatic Score", and "Theme #2". Next up are 15 more tracks from Requiem Per Un Gringo – a much more driving western soundtrack, filled with themes of triumph and action in the typical Italian mode! Titles include "Price Of A Gun", "Sandstorm", "The Moon & You", "Cloudy Prairie", "Misty Tree", "Trouble In Store", and "Pistols Galore". Last up are 2 tracks from Uno Straniero A Paso Bravo – one single, and one suite version of the title track! CD

Ennio MorriconeCosi' Come Sei (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $18.99
The kind of sexy Morricone soundtrack we really really love! This overlooked gem is a sweet 70s side – written for a love story starring Marcello Mastroianni and Nastassja Kinski, and done with the lightly erotic touches that make even Morricone's prettiest melodies extremely haunting and edgey. Most of the music is by a larger orchestra, with some isolated instrumentation – and although a few tracks get a bit uptempo, overall the mood is very languid, slowly drifting from note to note, like a breeze through a window on a summer afternoon. Sultry grooves from the master! Titles include "Verso Madrid", "Amore Per Amore", "Cosi Come Sei", "Spazio 1999", "Postludio D'amore", and "A Nastassia". This new CD version is remastered and better than ever – with 8 bonus tracks – previously unreleased alternate versions of "Cosi Come Sei", "A Nastassia" and "Preludio D'Amore". CD

Piero PiccioniScacco Alla Regina (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $12.99
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

Carlo RustichelliVado, Vedo E Sparo ... CD
Cinevox/Saimel (Italy), 1968. Used ... $14.99
One of the most unique western soundtracks we've ever heard – scored by Carlo Rustichelli with a strong undercurrent of Italian comedy modes! The tracks here are all relatively short, and often have the joyous, leaping sort of grooves you find in the best Rustichelli soundtracks of the 60s – those groovy tunes that we're used to hearing in sex spoofs of the period, but which are markedly different here in a western! The instrumentation and themes vary nicely throughout – keeping the overall feel of the record as playful as the orchestrations – and the album features shortish tracks that include "Galoppa Susanna", "Vado Vedo E Sparo", "Dollari Al Sole", "Una Borsa Preziosa", "Una Dozzina Di Guai", "Il Segno Del Signore", "Pianola Calibro 45", "Una Colt A Tre Fuochi", and "I Tre Che Sconvolsero Il West". CD features 3 bonus tracks – all part of a longer suite based on the soundtrack! CD

Piero Umiliani5 Bambole Per La Luna D'Agosto (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. Used ... $11.99
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

Piero UmilianiLa Morte Bussa Due Volte (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Cinevox/Production Dessinee (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $22.99
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 11 bonus tracks – for a total of 25 numbers in all! 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

✨✧ GoblinPatrick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... 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

✨✧ Piero UmilianiRoy Colt & Winchester Jack ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare spaghetti western score from Piero Umiliani – an Italian composer we usually know best for bossa or more jazz-oriented scores, but who sounds right at home in this genre too! The album's got a sound that really shows the full range of Umiliani's talents – a few western-styled numbers with guitar in the lead, but also a number of different styles too – quieter moments that are cool variations on the main theme – played with either organ, saxophone, or harpsichord – recorded with some cool changes and a great sense of play throughout. The CD features 12 tracks from the film's score – plus the vocal number "Roy Colt", which is sung by the group Free Love, and originally only issued on a 45! CD
