✨✧ Ennio MorriconeQuattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio – The Four Velvet Flies (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About August 1, 2021
❔
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single issued by Cinevox in 1971. The leadoff track – "4 Mosche Di Vellutto Grigio (titoli)" – is actually a bit funky, with some very heavy drums and cascading fuzzy guitar riffs that sound very nice. Then, the record moves into spookier material – like the cut "Come Un Madrigale", and a number of self-titled themes – all of which feature strange harpsichord work, dark orchestral passages, and some very spooky production work! Fortunately, the score ends on an upbeat note – a hard driving, beat group sounding version of the main theme that's a nice cap to the whole package! LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniSpontaneous (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
Stunning rare work from Alessandro Alessandroni – a soundtrack talent who first flourished in the 60s, but really hit his stride in the sound library scene of the 70s! Alessandroni has a great way here of mixing the warm and the sweet, the funky and the melodic – tunes that are short and simple, but always pretty darn groovy – with a sweet, slinky style that's a great extension of the funkier modes of both French and Italian cinema at the start of the 70s – well-placed basslines that really set the score, peppered with just the right bits on guitar or keyboards – and never overdone, so that the grooves are spacious enough to really let you appreciate all the right touches! Titles include "Watergate", "Mitzi", "Sunny Coast", "Pure Nature", "Blue Waves", "Young America", "High Class", "Meadows", and "Life Tree". LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro BrugnoliniSuperground (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 39.99
Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great sound library albums of the time, the music is way more than conventional – as guitar, organ, bass, and drums are arranged, recorded, and produced in very unusual ways – with a really open ear towards the fuller, larger sound – which includes great effects and other elements along the way! The whole thing's very groovy – kind of mid 60s Italian mod soundtrack styles meeting the psychedelic generation – and titles include "Kissing", "Villa Polanski", "Sharon Tate", "Hip Now", "Lovable", "Petting", "Under Funeral", and "Malattia".

Silvano D'AuriaLa Mano Lunga Del Padrino (Long Arm Of The Godfather) (with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $32.99 39.99
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! Titles include "Raffica", "Fuga In La Minore", "Sabina", "Streap", and "Porto Cammelli". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes CD of the album with bonus tracks!)

Dancefloor StompersLibrerie Musicali ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 2018. New Copy ... $26.99 29.99
A cool little funky group – one that's so influenced by the sound library scene of the 70s, they even styled this album like one of those records from back in the day! The tunes are almost all instrumental – heavy on drums and funky basslines, and filled with guitar, organ, electric piano, and lots of other groovy touches – all with a very strong 70s vibe in the overall approach and production! Things are nice and simple – and these guys avoid some of the cliches of other groups who go for this territory, but maybe push too hard. Titles include "Rapina Alla Brinks", "Pop Shake Beat", "4 Dita E Una Pistola", "Country Ride & Boat Chase", "Double Pimp", "Romance", and "Armando's Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

Augusto MartelliNella Misura In Cui ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $32.99 39.99
A sweet little entry in the small Italian genre of "erotic films on island location" – served up with this fantastic blend of 70s instrumentation and older exotica percussion! The setting is the Caribbean, but that's more in fantasy than the musical styles within – as Augusto Martelli blends bass, guitar, and plenty of keyboards with rawer acoustic percussion elements that really set the scene – making for this wonderfully earthy contrast to the sweeter electric moments – at a level that must have made for plenty of unbridled and savage love on the screen! Titles include "La Seduzione", "Joining Together", "Mercato Di Portorico", "How Wonderful You Are", "Visions"- and "La Spiaggia Di Ulisse". LP, Vinyl record album

Luciano MicheliniMorte Sospetta Di Una Minorenne ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $34.99
A sweet electric score from Luicano Michelini – and one that we might almost point to as an early entry in the keyboard sound of Italian horror films! The style's not as proggy or rockish as Goblin – and Luciano borrows maybe a bit of funk from some of the cop/crime scene – yet the main focus is on the electric instrumentation, with lots of basslines and keyboard flights to really set the mood, often with a spare style that's much more 80s than you'd guess from the date! Some moments almost evoke a spooky church organ – but played faster, on 70s keyboards, in a way that really abstracts the horror film standard. Titles include "Death Warning", "Gettin Closer", "Blind Murder", "Too Young To Die", and "Killer Tango". LP, Vinyl record album

Nora OrlandiA Doppia Faccia ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $32.99 39.99
Mindblowing work from Nora Orlandi – one of the few major female film composers on the Italian scene, and a talent that we always rank right up there with the male greats of the golden days! This set has a real Morricone-like balance of darkness and light – although the style is different than Morricone's, with maybe a more open ear for variance across the tracks in the set – even though there's a strongly unified feel to the whole thing – this beautiful journey in sound that begins with the first vocal track, ends with the last one – and moves nicely through a mix of mod groovers, creepier numbers, and both jazzy and avant moments – all arranged and conducted by Robby Poitevin, with lead piano by Nora herself! The limited vinyl reissue features two unissued tracks, plus great notes from Orlandi on the back. LP, Vinyl record album

PiottaSuburra – Blood On Rome ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 2021. New Copy ... $19.99
A mix of styles served up nicely in support of the final season of the series Suburra – with just the right blend to match the crime narrative of the story! Some cuts are instrumental and more familiar soundtrack styles – others offer up contemporary Italian soul and hip hop modes – plenty of beats and lots of touches from R&B – with lyrics in Italian throughout! Titles include "Suburra Theme Song", "Scivola Via", "E Ora Di Andare", "La Giostra", "Fiore Dell'Infame", "Suburra", "Cuore Nero", and "E Ora Di Andare (FF rmx)". LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni SafredFuturibile – The Life To Come ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1978. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99 39.99
A really great set of Italian electronics – a set that's maybe known better to Americans than most of the generation, due to a surprising 70s release on Folkways Records! Yet this set is quite different than the more academic electronics that usually grace that label – and echo more that shift towards moogier modes that would really crest in the Italian clubs of the next decade – still here more in a sound library mode, but turned towards nice little tunes that move between spacey instrumentals and keyboard groovers! Gianni Safred plays a range of different instruments – minimoog, polymoog, Arp Odyssey, Fender Rhodes, and Roland keyboards – layering the electronics in a way that's nice and warm, and surprisingly soulful at most moments too. Tracks include "Jazz Computer", "Future City Traffic", "Electronic Brain", "Supermind", "The Life To Come", "Disco Satellite", "Autumn 2001", and "Robot Party". LP, Vinyl record album

Giuliano Sorgini & OthersAfrica Oscura Reloved Vol 1 ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 2021. New Copy ... $11.99
A special set of tracks that pays tribute to the original Africa Oscura record from Italian sound library composer Giuliano Sorgini – a fantastic blend of percussion and electronics that was almost a 70s update on older exotica modes, but with a much darker vibe overall! Here, contemporary talents take the original music and mix things up a bit – often with a rhythmic vibe, but never in a mode that gets in the way of Sorgini's original genius! Vol 1 features three tracks in all – "Oasi Nella Giungla (afro temple mix)" by Pad, "Africa Oscura (drums of passion mix)" by Paine, and "Iniziazione (ritual quirky mix)" by LUCA.

Armando TrovajoliIl Vuoto ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
Early work from the tremendous Armando Trovajoli, but a set that shows that the maestro was already at the top of his game – coming off of some great experience on the Italian jazz scene of the late 50s, and able to blend that experience with more cinematic modes! The vibe here is different than the soundtrack jazz of Piero Piccioni in the early 60s – more small combo, and more in the mode of a jazz record at times – with very strong interplay between the core group of musicians, and interaction between Trovajoli's piano and the work Carlo Zoffoli on vibraphone, Gino Marinacci on baritone sax and flute, Enzo Grillini on electric guitar, Berto Pisano on double bass. The whole thing's wonderfully groovy – maybe years ahead of its time in terms of color and tone, especially for a soundtrack – and titles include "Evasione", "Etasi", and "Frenesia" – plus a number of variations on the title theme!

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo Elettronico – Cosmic Electronic Environments From An Italian Synth Music Maestro 1972 to 1983 ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from a very electric man – the mighty Piero Umiliani, an Italian composer who first rose to fame for a set of groundbreaking film scores in the 60s – then moved into even more experimental sound library work in the following decade! This set has Piero working in all sorts of cool electronic styles – never too outside or avant, but definitely in the darker side of his spectrum – although almost always with that playful sense of a tune that made his 60s music such a delight! The range of instruments varies – Umiliani clearly had a studio that was full of brand-new, top-shelf technologies – and titles are mostly from the mid 70s, with a few later cuts from 1983. Tunes include "Danza Magica", "Soundmaker Blues", "Fruitori", "Batticuore", "Sinistro Carillon", "Dolomiti", "Apocolaisse Atomica", "Description", "Lavorazione A Mare", and "Elettrone".

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $39.99 42.99
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian soundtrack/sound library reissue scene of the past decade or two – but instead lots of fresh tracks that really throw open the gates – with strong quality tracks that are awash in lots of groovy elements! Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title. Tracks include "Don Milani" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Cugine Mie" by Nico Fidenco, "Gideon" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Camorra" by Manuel De Sica, "Pensiero D'Amore" by Mario Migliardi, "Gisposta A Tutto" by Gianni Marchetti, "Mondo Di Notte Oggi" by Gianni Oddi Gianni Dell'Orso, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, and "Verso La Droga" by Sandro Brugnolini.

Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $42.99 44.99
A great entry in this very groovy series – one that shifts the title a bit from previous volumes, and which also moves the music a bit too – but all while staying pretty darn funky! The set's got much more of a 70s soundtrack vibe than some of the other entries – loads of great keyboards, heavy basslines, riffing guitar, and other elements that are often used in ways that remind us of the bigger blacksploitation and crime/cop work of the decade – but cooler, hipper, and a lot more obscure! Titles include "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Addio Ultimo Uomo" by Franco Godi, "Uragno Sulle Bermuda" by Stelvio Cipriani, "L'Occhio Dietro La Parete" by Pippo Caruso, "A Pugni Nudi" by Franco Bixio/Fabio Frizzi/Vince Tempera, "Le Evase" by Pippo Caruso, "La Sbandata" by Domenico Modugno & Gianni Oddi, "Afrika Erotika" by Alessandro Blonksteiner, "Nove Ospiti Per Un Delitto" by Carlo Savina, and "Maladolescenza" by Pippo Caruso.

VariousNuda – 21 Exciting Cuts From The Italian Sexy-Comedy Disco Scene 1975 to 1981 ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99
That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles here are mostly in the rhythms – as lots of the instrumentation follows in ways that reference early 70s Italian cop and crime – and, to a lesser extent, some of the mod and bossa styles of the late 60s – all handled by the cream of the crop of the Italian film world, mostly with an instrumental approach! The set list is great, and really brings together the best examples of the genres, and avoids some of the cheesy, clunky tunes that sometimes got in the way on larger soundtracks – which makes for a cool compilation that really packs one hell of a punch! Titles include "La Settimana Bianca" and "Classe Mista" by Gianni Ferrio, "Taxi Girl" by Pulsar Music Ltd, "Scusi Lei E Normale" by Franco Micalizzi, "La Sposina" by Nico Fidenco, "Sette Ragazze Di Classe" by Fabio Frizzi, "L'Insegnante Balla Con Tutta La Classe" by Walter Rizzati, "La Liceale" by Vittorio Pezzola, "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Grazi Nonna" by Enrico Simonetti, and "L'Infermiera Di Mio Padre" by Giacomo Dell'Orso.

✨✧ Piero UmilianiParanoia ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic music from the great Piero Umiliani – one of Italy's greatest soundtrack composers, and definitely at the top of his game here! The music was recorded right around the same time as Umiliani's legendary work for Sweden Heaven & Hell – and there's a similar mix of styles going on here – a strong leadoff track with female vocals, groovy swingers with a nice degree of jazz, some excellent use of organ, and some really cool mellower numbers that have this subtle sonic power that's really wonderful – often again dosed with some nice use of organ! The score features 16 tracks in all – with subtitles that really give you an idea of the groove – including "pop jazz", "bossa", "psychedelic suspense", "samba jazz", and "jazz pour l'action".

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – offbeat keyboards, riffing guitars, and other instrumentation that's sometimes given these odd psychedelic touches by the studio maestros who were putting together the cuts at the time – some of which were used in obscure soundtracks, and a number of which appear here for the first time ever! This isn't the overly-familiar film music territory of other collections – and instead, most of this music is completely fresh – even for the longtime collector – presented in a great package that includes the cuts "Anastasia Mio Fratello" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, "La Mano Lunga Del Padrino" by Silvano D'Auria, "L'Arbitro" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, "La Liceale Nella Classe Dei Ripetenti" by Gianni Ferrio, "L'Altro Dio" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Giovane Clan" by Sandro Brugnolini, "La Profonda Luce Dei Sensi" by SEverino Gazzelloni, and "Calamo" by Claudio Tallino.

Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Modern jazz from the Italian scene of the 60s – all of it recorded for film and soundtrack use, and almost none of is released before! The music here shows not just the fantastic advances in film scoring in the 60s, but also the overlooked growth of jazz in Italy at the same time too – shifts in sounds and styles that continue to amaze us – even if most of the commercial recordings never got much global circulation at the time! And these sounds are even more unusual and special than those – recorded by names that you'd recognize as both musicians and composers – and mostly presented in small combo modes that resonate strongly with rare Italian jazz records of the period. Titles include "Tempo Di Charlston" by Enrico Simonetti, "I Nostri Mariti" by Armando Trovajoli, "Amarsi Male" by Silvano Spadaccino, "Un'Ora Per Vivere" by Nino Tassone, "Desideri D'Estate" by Gino Peguri, "La Curruzione" by Giovanni Fusco, "La Donna E Una Cosa Meravigliosa" by Perio Piccioni, "La Ragazzola" by Romano Mussolini, and "Una Jena In Cassaforte" by Gianfranco E Gian Piero Reverberi.

Four fantastic tracks from the Afro Discoteca record by sound library genius Alesseandro Alessandroni – all reworked in contemporary versions, yet in a way that never loses the funky charm of the originals! There's a real respect for classic styles going on here – partly because the choice of remixers is so strong, the project features just the right sort of artists to keep things right, while still also adding in their own contributions too – maybe some extra keyboards or subtle electronic elements that never get in the way of the original tribal disco inspiration! Titles include "Afro Voodoo (Bovisa rmx with Calibro 35)", "Afro Darkness (Pad rmx)", "Afro Discoteca (Jolly Mare lifting)", and "Afro Darkness (LUCA quirky version)". LP, Vinyl record album

The music sums up all the best Nicolai modes of the time – some of those Morricone-like moments of mellow groove, mixed with starker striking sounds, balanced by some especially catchy jazz elements that really make the whole thing sparkle – in ways that are almost a more serious presentation of ideas that Bruno brought to sexier comedies! Vibes, organ, and guitar all figure in nicely at certain points – and the soundtrack's awash in very cool tunes – including a few lyrical numbers near the end. Titles include "Tema Barocco", "Teorema", "Larve", "Le Voice", "Sogno", "Catacombe", "Notti Romane", and "Avventure Notturne". LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty wild collection of horror film work from Italian composer Giuliano Sorgini – pulled from the farther reaches of the low-budget film industry of the 70s – but still completely at the top of the game from a musical perspective! There's a really nice mix of modes going on here – tunes that are sometimes funky (including one great drum break), and often nicely spooky – but with that great ear for lower-end sounds that often marked some of Sorgini's more experimental work, used here in styles that are delightfully tuneful, even when creepy!
