Piero PiccioniBelle Ma Povere ... CD CD format
Digitmovies (Italy), 1957. New Copy ... $24.99
A great old school soundtrack from the mighty Piero Piccioni – one that predates some of his stronger jazz use in film, but which still has a pretty swinging sound overall! The music often has a very playful feel – either light melodies on lean instrumentation, or some even better numbers with a fuller group that bring in a mixture of Latin or swinging touches! Some elements have a nice undercurrent of sentimentality – more 50s Italian cinema than you'd find in Piero's later work – but the quality is carried off with just the sort of whimsy we'd expect from the maestro. CD features 26 tracks in all. CD

Piero PiccioniCuore Di Cane ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
The film's got a very weird story – about the evolution of a dog into a human – and Piero Piccioni turns out to be a very good choice for the soundtrack! Initial moments are done in a style that's more serious than usual for Piccioni – some broader, more traditional elements that set a scene that demands that the narrative be taken seriously. But as things move on, little whimsical touches start creeping into the mix, to underscore the comedy in the story – little playful flourishes that almost take us back more to a 60s world of Italian film themes, although carried off here with a few 70s touches. Not nearly as wild as some of Piccioni's work, but still a great illustration of the master's many talents – packaged here in a special set that features a whopping 11 bonus tracks! CD

Piero PiccioniI Fratelli Karamazov ... CD CD format
Kronos (Austria), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
A really great soundtrack for a late 60s film version of The Brothers Karamazov – scored by the mighty Piero Piccioni with a sensibility that's nicely balanced between epic modes and more personal, individual moments! The orchestrations on the album are often nicely restrained – never pushing too far, and soon laying back once the score gets moving – to allow great solo space for Piccioni on organ or Severino Gazzelloni on flute. I Cantori Moderni make a few key appearances, adding in their lovely vocals – and this expanded reissue features 2CDs, and a whopping 52 tracks in all! CD
(Limited edition of 500 copies.)

Piero PiccioniIo La Conoscevo Bene ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful wonderful stuff – exactly the kind of mod soundtrack we've really come to love from the legendary Piero Piccioni! The music's a very cool blend of jazz and more 60s-styled rhythms – including some groovers in the "jerk" or "shake" modes – all served up with instrumentation that includes some of those great organ lines that Piccioni used so well in La Deccima Vittima/The Tenth Victim – plus some strong tenor and flute lines that really echo his earlier work in jazz! The whole thing's wonderful – a blend of jaunty numbers and dreamy instrumentals – all remastered nicely, and presented in a very vivid package. CD

Piero PiccioniLe Altre ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99
Cool organ lines, wonderful keyboards, and lots of other great bits – all stepping out in a double-length set that's completely sublime – and maybe some of the best work we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Piccioni! The score is as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – and definitely has those bossa and jazz elements from the Morricone generation of Italian soundtrack work, too – yet it also has these interesting offbeat touches that are pure Piccioni right from the start – that great ear for odd tunings and unusual phrases that really keeps things interesting all the way through, and which makes the record so sublime from both a musical perspective and a sonic one! 2CD set features over two hours of music from this rare score – a number of which feature haunting wordless vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso.

New Piero PiccioniScacco Alla Regina (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Piero PiccioniSeven Cadaveri Per Scotland Yard ... CD CD format
Beat/Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
A greatly expanded version of this Italian horror soundtrack – with way more music than we've ever seen on any previous edition! Piero Piccioni did the soundtrack for Seven Murders For Scotland Yard – in a style that mixes more dramatic orchestrations with a few great mod touches on organ, flute, and percussion – which step out nicely on the groovier tracks, and bring in a nice note of action and surprise to a score that's mostly tense and poised for danger! These few light bits really offset things nicely – and create an unsettling feel in a work that's pretty darn dark overall, and which shows some of the most somber qualities we've ever heard in Piccioni's music. Titles include "Seven Murders", "Unknown Maniac", "Reminding The Ripper", "Suspecting", "Inspector Campbell", and "Professor Christie" – and the CD features a total of 22 tracks in all! CD

New Piero Piccioni/Lydia MacDonaldMafioso & Other Great Piccioni Scores (plus Piero Piccioni Presenta Lydia MacDonald) ... CD CD format
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Early soundtrack work from the great Piero Piccioni – heard here on his famous score for the film Mafioso, plus some even cooler more obscure work! The set begins with some jazzy numbers for the film Il Mondo Di Notte Numero 2 – as well as a bold jazz cut from Adua E La Compagne – then moves into the rich score for Mafioso – which has a sardonic blend of darkness and comedy to really fit the narrative of the film. Jazzy elements still pervade in that store – and show up throughout the rest of the CD – which features work from Senilita, L'Imprevisto, Guendalina, and I Magiliari. The set then finishes with a full vocal album – Piero Piccioni Presenta Lydia MacDonald – a great jazz vocal album with English language lyrics by singer Lydia MacDonald! CD

Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente ... LP LP format
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Around February 15, 2015 (delayed)
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a way that's too atonal or horror-based either! Piccioni brought a really special sort of genius to the record – a way of using each instrument with a very unusual sound or tuning – and isolating each element in just the right way, but with a different style than that used by Morricone at the time. Some tracks get nice and groovy, but lots more hang back in a style that's almost pensive – and titles include "Kintabu", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD". CD features 12 bonus tracks – all unreleased alternates! LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra ... LP LP format
Bella Casa (UK), 1966. New Copy ... Around March 9, 2015
One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Most of the music is by Piccioni and the wonderful vocal group I Cantori Moderni, with Edda Dell'Orso on vocals – but the CD also features some work by Lydia Mac Donald, Julie Rogers, and Ennio Morricone. Includes a few versions of the "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". Very groovy – with loads of excellent material, and 27 cuts in all! LP, Vinyl record album

New Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 ... CD CD format
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another cool Italian soundtrack dug up from the classic years and reissued by the great folks at Easy Tempo! Piero Piccioni's score to this cool film about a hooker drug addict in Rome in the late 60's is a cool mix of subdued organ riffs, throbbing rhythms, and nice sexy solos. Unlike lots of American scores from the time (and from the same type), there's not a bit of filler, and all of the 22 cuts are beautifully written and hauntingly excecuted. Great sexy sheen, with a soft rainy feel, but still a lot of nice jazzy soul throughout. We can't recommend these Easy Tempo releases enough, and this one is one of our favorites! CD

New Piero PiccioniI Magliari ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent jazz soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – captured at a great early point in his film career, when he was still mixing in lots of elements from his work in jazz as well! The style here echoes some of the French jazz soundtracks of the new wave – and the tunes often sport breakout solos with plenty of fire – tenor, trumpet, and lots of piano – the latter of which has an especially great feel on some of the more mellow, moody tunes. Rhythms are great too – sometimes slow and loose, sometimes more vibrant and boppish – and together, the tunes work together to offer up a vibrant version of the movie that's almost as striking as the images on the screen! CD features a total of 26 tracks in all – over 70 minutes of music, including a number of unreleased tracks. CD

Beat (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lots of jazziness here – including tight piano, snapping snare, and moody vibes – all served up in one of the best early soundtracks we've heard from Piero Piccioni! The core of the record features the original EP release of the film score – some of the most tight, tuneful numbers that really showcase Piccioni's jazz potential – but even the rich array of bonus tracks (29 extra tunes!) still mostly retain the jazzy flourish of the originals, and offer up some sweet instrumental variations that are mighty nice! The whole thing stands strongly next to some of the best French or American jazz soundtracks of the period – and this reissue adds in so much extra music, the CD runs for almost 80 minutes in length.

Digitmovies (Italy), 1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The birth of Rome – set to a rich soundtrack from the great Piero Piccioni! The style here is much more dramatic than some of Piccioni's jazzier work of the time – large orchestrations that follow the same sort of pattern of other blood-and-sandals films that starred Steve Reeves – but with some deeper, darker passages that let us know that Piero's bringing his best to the process. The CD features the full album originally issued 30 years ago – plus lots of bonus tracks too – a whopping 33 titles that include "La Lupa", "I Gemelli", "Romolo E Remo", "Gara Di Cavalli", and "Morte Di Remo E Finale".

GDM (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lovely early sounds from the great Piero Piccioni – a really masterfully-scored batch of music – rich in complex woodwind passages and evocative themes! Piccioni seems to borrow a bit from the style of Nino Rota – and some of the soundtrack composers who worked on Italian neo-realist films – and he blends these playful elements with darker, more abstract passages – all with a density that's beautiful, and a depth that goes way beyond some of his later, groovier material. The whole thing's a great surprise – a key early chapter for the maestro – and the CD adds in 13 bonus tracks, for over 70 minutes of music! CD

New Piero PiccioniFratello Mare ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little island soundtrack from the great Piero Piccioni – scored in a style that has lots of musical watery touches! Flute is one of the main instruments here – either used as a lead solo instrument, or wrapped up next to the keyboards with a really cool underwater vibe – a lot like some of the best soundtrack work of Sven Libaek at the same time! And most cuts are very evocative, without the kind of too-modern instrumentation you might expect from the time – and instead just the right balance between woodwind and keyboards to really create some amazing moments. The 30 track CD is overstuffed with goodies – and is nearly 80 minutes in length! CD

New Piero PiccioniIl Demonio ... CD CD format
Beat (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Definite demonic sounds from Piero Piccioni – one of the darkest soundtracks we've ever heard from the legendary Italian film composer – and a real standout from the rest of his work of the 60s! There's some very oddly-tuned instrumentation on the set – weird organ that's not entirely pipe organ, yet hardly Hammond either – often played in these long, twisted notes mixed with very offbeat and abstract percussion – all in ways that seem to reference the world of Xenakis and Stockhausen, yet which have a bit more of a cinematic focus here too. A few tunes are a bit more conventional, but still plenty darn tense – and titles include 14 tracks from the unreleased album, and 3 more long numbers from the film score! CD

Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maestro is right – as Piero Piccioni is one of the greatest soundtrack composers ever! The set brings together rare and unreleased Piccioni tracks from the 60s and 70s, and goes out of its way to feature tunes that haven't been reissued on other recent compilations of his material. The feel is really wonderful – a mix of slow funky Euro tunes and more upbeat bossa jazz styled ones – and a few numbers feature vocals, laid out in a mod and swinging kind of way. Totally great, and a really important addition to any collection of Italian soundtracks – with a nice interview with Piccioni on the inside, too! Titles include "Balboa Spell", "Grand Central Rock Drum", "Once & Again", "Jet Set Trip", "Right Or Wrong", "Brasilian Suite", "Tam Tam Suite", "Rome Lullaby", "Lagoa Sketch", and "Nuovo Duke". CD

New George Delerue/Piero PiccioniLe Mepris (Contempt) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP LP format
Doxy, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The complete music for Jean Luc Godard's film Contempt – not just the serious score by Georges Delerue, but some groovier numbers by Piero Piccioni too! Delerue's music is perhaps most associated with the movie – some of his first important work for film, and done with these dark string passages that really echo the darker mood of the film, on titles that include "Camille", "Capri", "Paul", "La Rupture Chez Prkoch", and "Generique". Piero Piccioni's music is much jazzier, and very swinging at times – with lots of great Hammond organ, similar to his sounds for Tenth Victim, and served up here with a similarly striking feel. Piccioni titles dominate the record – 3 of the record's 4 sides – and titles include "Spiral Of Love", "Waves Out Of The Moon", "Fairy Tales", "Spleen In Capri", "Double Face", "Organ Mood", and "Come Down".

Jerry GoldsmithOur Man Flint/In Like Flint ... CD CD format
MGM/Intrada, 1966/1967. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of spy spoof gems – back to back on a single CD! First up is Our Man Flint, which features excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with some spookier instrumental touches – either on electric guitar, sax, or a "tortured" Thomas organ and a Solovox – and the overall feel of the album is on a par with the best work of the sort by Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro! Titles include "Doing As The Romans Did", "All I Have To Do Is Take A Bite of Your Apple?", "Tell Me More About That Volcano", and "Our Man Flint". In Like Flint continues Jerry Goldsmith's great run of grooves for the Flint spy spoof films of the 60s – working in a style that's a lot more complex than Lalo Schifrin or John Barry, but still every bit as groovy! Goldsmith's got this excellent style of swirling together strings, instrumental solos, and lots of cool offbeat elements – all with a sound that's often jazzy, but pretty unusual too – maybe in the best territory of Piero Piccioni over on the Italian scene! Arrangements are by Marty Paich and Warren Barker – who bring their most playful modes to the album – and titles include the vocal numbers "Where The Bad Guys Are Gals" and "Your Zowie Face", plus "Ahh Yer Father's Bob-Lip", "Mince & Cook Until Tender", and "Lost In Space".

Mario NascimbeneSummit ... CD CD format
Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... $22.99
A very groovy soundtrack from Mario Nascimbene – and one that really shows how much more open-ended his style was than some of his 60s Italian contemporaries! At some moments, Nascimbene has a great ear for moody mellow styles that would be right in line with the best from Piero Piccioni or Bruno Nicolai – but at other times, he brings in some sentimental touches that links his music back to an older era of Italian film scores, while still keeping the instrumentation in the leaner styles of the 60s. Upbeat tracks appear here and there – accenting a few jazzier touches in the music – and instrumentation includes some haunting piano lines, and some great slow-moving organ bits too. Titles include "Le Cafard< 'Summit", "Per Due Parole D'Amore", and "Mots D'Amour". CD

Orgasmo SonoreRevisiting Obscure Film Music Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. New Copy ... $16.99
A sublime second set of work from Orgasmo Sonore – even hipper than their first, and again a wonderful reworking of soundtrack modes from the Italian scene of the 70s! Compositions here are by Ennio Morricone, Stelvio Cipriani, Piero Piccioni, and others – but the group makes the music very much their own – by transforming the tunes with tighter, funkier instrumentation – almost giving the songs a small combo sort of feel, while still retaining all the majestic charm of the originals! The approach is mindblowing – easily one of the best contemporary experiments of this nature we've ever heard – and the record is pleasing both to ears that love vintage soundtracks, and to those that dig funky instrumentals too. Titles include "Too Risky A Day For A Regatta", "Incubi Ricorrenti", "Metropolis", "Summertime Bossa", "Volto Di Donna", "Pillage", "Les Dunes D'Ostende", "Un Ombra Nell'Ombra", "La Sconda Caccia", and "Pearls".

Saimel (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... $26.99
A really groovy little soundtrack – filled with sweet mod musical elements, including a fair bit of great organ and guitar! The organ is especially nice – used in that stretched-out, almost spooky way you'd hear on some of Piero Piccioni's best soundtracks of the time – still rooted in jazz, but quite different than American use of the instrument – and a great demonstration of the way Italian soundtrack maestros like Carlo Savina could really transform the sound of an instrument, and come up with all these great musical elements in the process! Most of the rhythms are nice and laidback – sexy, but not in a slinky sort of way – and the soundtrack is a real revelation that has us thinking of Savina a lot more highly than usual. Titles include "Esclavas", "Contest Jazz", "Down Left", "Influence", "Valzer Cecko", and "Organo Solo In Un Mattino Di Guerra". CD also features 10 more bonus tracks too – all previously unreleased!

VariousBig Bang Presents The Italo Funk Experience – Synth Funk, Italo Exploitation & Espresso Jazz From Italy 1969 to 1980 ... CD CD format
Nascente (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99
A really cool collection that's got way more to offer than you might guess from the Italo in the title – as the set's filled with obscure funk, jazz, and sound library gems from the 70s! Usually, we associate Italo with Italo Disco – that 80s version of club music that broke big around the world in many scenes. But the tracks here are sort of the "roots" of that version of Italo – the funky experiments of a generation before – which were often inspired by American jazz and soul of the time, but took things into a whole new dimension – thanks to the wide range of creative instrumentalists and unusual studios in Italy during the 70s! A few names are familiar here, and others are composers you might know from soundtracks – but together, the vibe is something else entirely – and something entirely great, thanks to wicked work from Big Bang/Arision Records, who put together the whole thing. Titles include "Aflogelia" by Narassa, "Open Space" by Piero Umiliani, "L'Eroe Di Plastica" by Tony Esposito, "Ore 24" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Pearls" by Piero Piccioni, "Five, Four, & Three" by Lee Konitz, "Lavoro Veloce" by Farlocco, "Louisville" by Made In USA, "Depressione" by Jazz Video, "Tip Cat" by Santucci Scoppa, and "Greenleaf Street" by Max Rocci & His Friends.

Tripped out psychedelia from the Italian cinema scene – great stuff from the late 60s through mid 70s – filled with percussion heavy mod rhythms, loads of leftfield oddball flourishes, and pulpy grooves galore! This set was compiled by Carlo Bagnolo and Claudio Fuiano who do a terrific job of assembling trippy, but never too wild stuff by some of the heavyweights of the era, along with some less familiar names – and the tunes are total gems! It's a mostly wordless batch, with some surprisingly funky bass and percussion, loungey horns, strings and flute, and loads of trippier elements at the fringes! Titles include "She's A Born Loser" by Phil Clinton & Peter Smith, "Bali" (new edit) and "Donna Piu'" by Giorgio Gaslini, "2968" by Carlo Savina, "Danza Primitiva" and "Cinque Bambole Rosa by Piero Umiliani, "Blue Rhythm Festival" (new edit) by Piero Piccioni, "Mood" by Augusto Martelli, "Fai Presto, Fai Presto" by Gianni Ferrio and more. 14 tracks in all – a number of which are on CD for the first time ever!

The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature! Things never get to overdone, but still go plenty far out – and titles include "Flying", "Imphormal", "Murder", "Gap", "New Experiences", "Fall Out", "Description", and "Obstinacy".

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 4 – A Kaleidoscopic Collection Of Exciting & Diverse Cinematic Themes ... CD CD format
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soundtrack funk doesn't get any better than this – thanks to a head-expanding of tracks from the Italian scene of the 60s and 70s – served up with the usual ear for a great cut by the folks at Easy Tempo! The groove here is far from the "easy" you might expect – and most numbers have tight drums, funky basslines, and other heavy elements – all put together with an approach to the music that's far different than anything happening in the US at the time, especially in the way the instruments sound in the end – and in the way that the production techniques make them do really crazy things! Titles include "Parangua" by Luiz Bacalov, "Flirt a Rio" by Piero Umiliani, "Side Sleep" by Berto Pisano, "Little Shakie Girl" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tremendous Stars" by Piero Piccioni, "Under Drama" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Realta No 5" by Stelvio Cipriani, "So" by Lara Saint Paul, "Israelites" by Capuano, and "Citta Viva" by Ennio Morricone.

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 6 – A Cinematic Jazz Experience ... CD CD format
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Easy Tempo groove is wider than ever here – still plenty funky, but also jazzy and groovy too – with some mod 60s influences filtering into the mix, and even a bit of vocals too! As always, the style is heavy on Italian soundtrack modes – that great blend of bossa, jazz, and other elements that graced so many cinematic excursions of the period – and which have been beautifully re-presented by Easy Tempo over the course of their excellent series. Set features titles that include "Sweden" by Tito Fontana, "Caccia Al Ladro" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tap 5" by Ettore Ballotta, "Notte In Allegria" by Piero Umiliani, "Golden Gate Bridge" by Riz Ortolani, "Gangster Song" by Piero Umiliani, "Ebony Ride" by Piero Piccioni, "Gordon Blues" by Francesco De Masi, "Concerto Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, and "Glad" by Lou Stein Trio.

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 7 – Bikini Beat ... CD CD format
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The bikini beat is a great one here – no simple beach music classics, but a range of mod groovers from the classic years of the Italian soundtrack scene! This volume is heavy on electric elements – fuzzy guitars, keyboards, and more – all filtered nicely through a range of rhythms from the 60s and the 70s – bossa, jazzy, and funky – filled with amazing twists and turns throughout! The double-length collection is a treasure through and through – easily one of the greatest soundtrack sets we could have hoped for. Tracks include "Teresa L'Illusa" by Riz Ortolani, "Malizie Di Venere" by Gianpiero Reverberi, "Spy Chase" by Bruno Nicolai, "Airport Rock" by Barigozzi Group, "Shake 2000" by Piero Piccioni, "Amanda Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, "Un Detective" by Fred Bongusto, "Katmandu" by Piero Piccioni, "Theme" by Armando Trovajoli, and "La Bambolona" by Luis Bacalov.

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 8 – Cinematica! - Different Musical Horizons ... CD CD format
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This great series keeps on redefining itself! While previous volumes have focused on funky, jazzy, and Latiny cuts – this fab 8th volume features a beautiful blend of tracks with a spare easy feel, and an exploration into the Italian minimalist groove – that ethereal, almost otherwordly style heard on some of the dreamiest soundtracks by Ennio Morricone! There's a floating, lilting groove here that's as lovely as the lady on the cover – and the set's overflowing with a whopping 21 titles in all – including "Tema Di Barbara" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Bai Des Anges" by Walter Rizzati, "A Ciascuno Il Suo" by Luis Bacalov, "To Jean" by Berto Pisano, "I Tuoi Sospiri" by Bruno Nicolai, "Metropoli" by Gino Marinacci Ensemble, "La Famiglia Nicotera" by Piero Piccioni, "Running Fire" by Lou Stein, and "Tema B" by Paolo Vasile.

New VariousEasy Tempo Vol 9 – The Ultimate Cinematic Compendium ... CD CD format
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Guido Crepax cover, and a batch of amazing soundtrack grooves – all wrapped up wonderfully as the 9th installment in the all-great Easy Tempo series! The sound here is superb – a blend of jazzy, bossa, and slightly funky numbers – all played with plenty of soul, and served up with a sound that easily shows why Italy was one of the hippest music scenes in the world at the end of the 60s. Instrumentation includes snakey sax, slinky keyboards, rumbling percussion, and more – all arranged with plenty of amazing twists and turns that go far beyond any expectations you might have from American cinema of the time! Highlights include a live version of Piero Piccioni's "Colpo Rovente"; work by the swinging vocal group I Cantori Moderni on both "La Ragazza Dalla Dalla Pelle Di Luna" by Piero Umiliani and "L'Uomo Dagli Occhi Di Ghiaccio" by Pepo De Luca & I Marc 4; a Gak Sato edit of "Death Dies" by Goblin; an extended take on "Dancing For You" by Armando Trovajoli; and the sweet cut "Hard Times" by Piero Umiliani. 20 tracks in all – and wonderful throughout!

New Braen's MachineUnderground ... CD CD format
Liuto Records/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature! Things never get to overdone, but still go plenty far out – and titles include "Flying", "Imphormal", "Murder", "Gap", "New Experiences", "Fall Out", "Description", and "Obstinacy". CD
