Keith Emerson/GoblinLa Chiesa (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1989. New Copy ... $10.99
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

GoblinPatrick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
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

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
One of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows".

Goblin/Giorgio GasliniProfondo Rosso (40th anniversary set – 3CDs/10" LP/shirt/poster) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1975. Sealed (reissue)... $43.99
A gorgeous tribute to this classic Italian horror film – one that includes the 2CD soundtrack reissue, the musical version on CD, and a 10" piece of vinyl – all in a box with a movie poster and exclusive t-shirt too! The 2CD release features one of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for sweet keyboard riffs that fill things up with an often-jazzy sort of feel – but usually kick back into a harder, more rock-driven mode on the rhythms. There's plenty of funky bits here, mixed in with mellower, moodier numbers – and titles include "Death Dies", "Mad Puppet", "School At Night", "Profondo Rosso", "Wild Session", and "Deep Shadows". Newly expanded 2CD version features a full bonus disc of alternate takes from the film – 29 more tracks that feature film versions, jazz versions, source music, and lots lots more! Package also contains the CD for Profondo Rosso Il Musical – a stage show based on the 70s horror film of the same name, and features music by the legendary Claudio Simonetti! Some tracks have all the best tones of the 70s – long, spare lines on bass and keyboards – very spacious and very hypnotic, and filled with dark twists and turns. Others are vocal numbers with a slightly more tuneful feel – driven by the lyrics, which themselves have a slightly eerie quality – almost like a bunch of zombies risen from the dead, setting out to make their own show. The whole thing almost feels like a Simpsons parody at times – but in a good way – and titles include "Io E Te", "L'Amore E La Morte", "Sangue Sangue", "Melpomene", "Lo Specchio", "Horror Tip Tap", and "Al Grand Guignol". 10" LP features new versions of original soundtrack numbers – from Claudio Simonetti's revived version of Goblin!

✨✧ GoblinAmo Non Amo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ GoblinPhenomena (180 gram pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1985. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal Italian horror soundtrack, played by the great Goblin, and created for this totally creepy film by Dario Argento! The band are using a lot of airy keyboards and electronics here – in broad washes of sound filled with evil and darkness, instead of some of the group's usual funkier rhythms. Not that the whole score's slow and moody, though, because some of the tracks have a nice early 80s electronic feel – like late Tangerine Dream, or instrumental Ultravox. Plus, a few themes have very haunting vocals, set to very creepy orchestrations! Titles include "The Wind", "Sleepwalking", "Jennifer", and "Jennifer's Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. Sealed ... $9.99
A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less jamming – stretching out with this great sense of space that really builds up the tension and mood throughout – to create a really captivating record, even away from the screen. Titles include "Phurba", "Escape From Tulpa", "Lonely Nights", "Working My Ass Off", "Italian Giallo", "Lisa's Theme", and "Bloody Radio". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith EmersonInferno (180 gram pressing – red vinyl with poster) ... LP
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
Dario Agento hired aging prog rock star Keith Emerson for this 1980 horror soundtrack, and the overall approach used by Emerson is similar to some of his solo instrumental work from the late 70s – with lots of keyboard-heavy tracks (acoustic piano, organ, electric piano) that show off Emerson's virtuosity and classical training. The score has some elements that are similar to some of Argento's other soundtracks – like the contemporary work by Goblin – but it's also much more of an Emerson-driven album. The whole thing's remastered here and presented with a total of 15 tracks that include "Mark's Discovery", "Rose Gets It", "Elisa's Story", "Inferno", and "Taxi Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

Franco MicalizziNapoli Violenta ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. Used ... $11.99
A classic 70s Italian crime soundtrack – presented here in full format for the first time ever, and filled with wonderful tunes in a variety of styles! There's a quality to the music that really matches the badass image on the front – a bold, forceful approach that has the upbeat numbers strutting along with plenty of pride – and which has the mellower, more brooding tracks working themes that are simple, but which pack the same force as the revolver on the cover. Franco Micalizzi uses some great keyboards throughout – often a bit light, with a style that's sometimes veering towards electric harpsichord, but other times in a more Goblin-like mode – almost horror-styled, especially when interwoven with acoustic piano. Tunes build up with force as the soundtrack rolls on – and this CD reissue features a whopping 30 tracks in all – with titles that include "Bloody Robbery", "Rush For A Sign", "Betti's Investigation", "Criminals At Work", "Useless Waiting", "Crime Outcome", "Folk & Violence", "Ten Minutes To One", and the vocal number "A Man Before Your Time".

Jonathan Snipes & William HutsonRoom 237 (180 gram orange & red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Death Waltz (UK), 2012. New Copy LP & CD ... $11.99 24.98
Contemporary work, but sounds that are greatly inspired by the best Italian soundtracks of the 70s and 80s – particularly those keyboard-heavy horror scores that have been so influential over the years! The music has the live, non-programmed feel of the best Goblin albums – but also comes across with less jamming, and a more thoughtful array of space overall – often letting the instrumentation echo out with one note before the next one comes along! There's a tiny bit of vocals at one point, but most sounds are instrumental – on keyboards, percussion, flute, and clavinet. Titles include "Ignorance Of Visual Information", "Moon Landing", "Emotional Architecture", "Dies Irae", and "To Keep From Falling Off". LP, Vinyl record album
(Insane package – a very hevy, very thick cardboard cover that acts like a pocket for the green vinyl, insert, and bonus CD!)

Andrew Thomas WilsonChain Reaction (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Dual Planet (Australia), 1980. New Copy ... $11.99 23.99
Moog and synth-heavy soundtrack to the early 80s nuclear horror B-Movie Chain Reaction! Composer Andrew Thomas Wilson pairs up elements of eerier synth and proggy rock inspired soundtracks by John Carpenter, Goblin and benchmark acts/composers of the period with some more droning, minimalist bits, and busy, nascent 80s electro pop and rock. Compelling stuff played on a mighty arsenal of period synthesizers and keyboards – mostly by Wilson himself, with only some additional help on guitar, drums and bass. Includes "Awakening", "The Beast", "Decontamination", "Heinrich's Theme", "Chain Reaction", "Once More With Feeling", "Paradise Valley", "The Hand At The Window" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBeretta 70 – Roaring Themes From Thrilling Italian Police Films 1971-80 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Early 70s. Used ... $19.99
Another excellent exploration into the lost world of European film music from the folks at Crippled Dick! Like their other sets, this one features a huge amount of funky and groovy music that you'll never find on the original vinyl – and unlike the other ones, this one's got a harder, heavier edge, due in great part to the "cop" origins of the music. There's lots of heavy grooves, fuzzy guitar, and cool wah wah "cop show theme" sort of sounds. The set's got music by Goblin, Adriano Fabi, Franco Micalizzi, Luis Bacalov, and others – and the whole thing's got a super-sexy look, with great documentation on both the material and the original films! There's lots of reproductions of posters from the films, and a huge amount of notes in English with a very high level of writing. Crippled Dick's always put a lot of hard work into their compilations, and this one is no exception! CD

GDM (Italy), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CD ... $19.99
A massive sampler of the grooviest, creepiest themes and tunes from horror movies from the past few decades – 30 tracks on two CDs! This one covers a wide range of territory, from Italian slasher and supernatural films, to sweeping score samples from big budget American productions, whether it's the creepy large scale string and choral arrangements from Lalo Schifrin scores, to big Hollywood Jerry Goldsmith and Danny Elfman bits, to the groovy horror rock of Goblin. A far-reaching, unpretentious collection! Includes "Tubular Bells Pt 1" from L'Esorcista by Mike Olddield, "Amityville Horror Main Title" by Lalo Schifrin, "The Shining Main Theme" by Wendy Carlos and Rachel Elkind, "Inferno" by Keith Emerson, "Suspiria" by Goblin, "Pit And The Pendelum Main Theme" by Lex Baxter, "The Fog" by John Carpenter, "Alien End Titles" by Jerry Goldsmith, "Twin Peaks Theme" by Angelo Badalamenti and tons more!

✨✧ Luciano MicheliniMorte Sospetta Di Una Minorenne ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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. CD features 24 tracks from the film – plus some nicely lurid images too! CD

✨✧ FallGrotesque (After The Gramme) ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first great punk rock album of the 80s! The Fall are at their ragged, blurry best on Grotesque (After The Gramme), with Marc E. Smith balancing bored, barbed witticism and coy sarcasm brilliantly over the bands patented tinny trudge. As with the Fall's other great albums, it's difficult to make out just Smith is saying most of the time, but you still get the point. So many indie rock bands owes the inspiration for their career to songs like "New Face In Hell" – and other tracks include "City Hobgoblins", "Put A Block", "Container Drivers", "Pay Your Rites", "Impression Of J. Temperance" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
