Piero PiccioniCamille 2000 (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Blind Faith (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The mix of instruments here is completely sublime – with some especially wonderful use of Hammond, but with very offbeat sounds – next to flute, warmer woodwinds, and some wicked basslines that hit the hippest sort of funk soundtrack modes. The recording quality is amazing, too – with unusual isolation and shading used on the instruments, to further make the sound magic – and titles include "Funky Lovers", "Pearls", "Slow Flute Beat", "Charms", "Brasil 2000", "Tears In Brasil", "Camille 2000", and "Tears In Rome". One of our all-time favorites – and with some bonus alternate takes! LP, Vinyl record album

Piero PiccioniGiovinezza Giovinezza ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little score from Piero Piccioni – penned for a late 60s Italian film with a relatively sentimental vibe – but handled by the maestro with a quality that's far deeper than you might expect! The leadoff melody certainly echoes the story, but it already has some of those unusual musical inflections that can make Italian scoring of the 60s so much more compelling than Hollywood material – and as the set moves on, Piccioni works in these beautiful subtle sounds that are wonderful – very different than some of his more whimsical work, but filled with an equally unique ear for unusual elements, and those hard-to-decipher sonic elements that really hold our attention! A few cuts hit a mellow, moody vibe – while others are a bit more punchy – breezy moments balanced with drama and jazz – over the course of 26 titles in all. CD

Piero PiccioniKenner/More Than A Miracle (3CD set) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967/1969. Used 3CD ... $39.99
A double-header of material from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – presented in a wonderfully rich, heavily-detailed style – the first time we've ever seen his music handled in the lavish Film Score Monthly manner! First up is the obscure soundtrack to Kenner – a late 60s Jim Brown film, done by Piero with a wonderfully sensitive soundtrack – really lovely woodwind interplay, with an undercurrent of jazz – almost a Johnny Mandel sort of mode, but with some of the occasional mod touches you'd expect from Piccioni on some of his better-known scores. There's some cuts that have a nicely pronounced soul jazz vibe – while others move between some lyrical sounds that are mighty sweet – and there's some bits that feature organ played with the raspy edges that always make Piero's handling of the instrument so different from others'. CD 1 features 32 tracks from Kenner – including some rare bonus material too – all conducted by Bruno Nicolai! CDs 2 and 3 feature More Than A Miracle, a dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". This expanded package features very detailed notes – and a whopping 70 tracks from the film – the full soundtrack album initially issued on MGM, 19 cuts from the film score itself, and an additional 36 bonus tracks too!

Piero PiccioniMusica Amore ... LP
General/Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The music of love from the great Piero Piccioni – served up here in a set that's right up there with his best soundtracks of the early 70s! The sounds come from a wonderful Piccioni array of instrumentation – some heavy Hammond here, a bit of soaring strings there – all set to offbeat, unusual arrangements that make these tunes sound a hell of a lot fresher than anything coming from the American instrumental scene at the time! There's still a few groovy echoes of Piero's mod 60s years – mixed with fantastic 70s charts that go even deeper, and which maybe make the record one of our favorites ever from the maestro – thanks to some currents of jazz and bossa from time to time. Shawn Robinson sings great soul vocals on the tunes "Right Or Wrong" and "Once & Again" – and other instrumental tracks include "Play Girl", "War Love Call", "Fiore Nero", "Ebony Rider", "Easy Dreamer", and "TNT Dance".

GDM (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $16.99
4 spaghetti western soundtracks on one CD – and all 4 by the great Piero Piccioni! Piero's one of our favorite soundtrack composers from the generation – and he handles the work here with a range of styles that keeps the music from sticking just to the straight "western" styles of the time. The score to "In Nome Del Padre" is especially great – with a nice jazzy main theme, and electric touches on many of the tunes, almost giving them a bit of a 70s cop show sort of style. The set's got a total of 26 tracks in all, 4 of which are performed by Alessandro Alessandroni. CD

Silva Screen, 1970. New Copy ... About July 11, 2017 (delayed)
A very groovy action-based score from composer Piero Piccioni – one of his few non-Italian soundtracks from the time! The music was recorded in swinging London at the end of the 60s – and it's got a mod sound that's very groovy, with Hammond and horns and guitar and electric bass all grooving together, in a mixture of fast catchy tunes, slower moody ones, and a few of those great oddball themes that always make Piccioni's soundtracks so wonderful! The whole thing's been lovingly remastered, with a great package that has images from the film. Titles include "Drugs Hypnosis", "Puppet On A Chain", "Drug Dealers", "Psychedelic Mood", "LSD Party", "Night Club", "Love Theme", and "Troubles In The Big City". 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

Piero PiccioniSeven Cadaveri Per Scotland Yard ... LP
Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About July 20, 2017 (delayed)
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.

Piero PiccioniUna Tomba Aperta Una Bara Vuota ... LP
Beat/Subsound (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The darker, moodier side of the great Piero Piccioni – not the sort of playful music that most people first discover from the maestro – but instead his sometimes-overlooked talent for putting together a nicely spooky soundtrack! The music is sometimes quiet mellow, other times bubbling with a bit of warmth – and Piccioni has a way of balancing the film score between darkness and light that's very much in the best Morricone spirit – yet served up with instrumentation that's quite different in its presentation. Titles include "Helen Where Are You", "It Means Love", "Haunting Memories", "Moonbeams On The Ruins", and "Dreaming Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni/Gianni Ferrio/Francesco De MasiToto Diabolicus/Toto Contro I 4/Toto Contro Maciste ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962/1963. New Copy ... $21.99
A trio of soundtracks from 60s films that starred Italian comedy giant Toto – each of them a bit different, given the change of narrative and composer! Piero Piccioni steps off with 15 tracks from Toto Diabolicus – music that mixes a bit of crime jazz with some of his early explorations of playful melody – served up with instrumentation that's more conventional than some of Piccioni's later material, but still nice and jazzy on a fair bit of tunes! Gianni Ferrio follows with 14 tracks from Toto Contro I 4 – material that partly has the same jazzy vibe as the previous score, but also some of the more pronounced musical whimsy that you'd expect from an Italian comedic soundtrack of the time. The jazzy tracks are great – very much on a par with the Piccioni material, and different than any later Ferrio sounds. Last up are 6 more tracks from Toto Contro Maciste – composed and conducted by Franceso De Masi, with a sound that's maybe the most conventional of all three soundtracks – orchestral drama, mixed with a bit of comedy – underscored with slight military themes to back up the story. 35 tracks in all!

✨✧ Piero PiccioniIL Bell'Antonio ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great early-ish score by maestro Piero Piccioni – for 1960's Il Bell'Antonio starring Marcello Mastrioanni, then fresh from his triumphant performance in La Dolce Vita – with a soundtrack that ranges from small combo jazz, to organ heavy melancholia, to more of sweepingly cinematic sound! The breadth of sounds and emotions is impressive, especially given that it all flows very well – with lonely strings and evocative organ, and laidback back jazzy material, too. The titles are unlisted, but the set is broken into 29 mostly short tracks. Very nice, and long overdue for official release. CD

Beat (Italy), 1959. Used ... 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

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

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLa Spina Dorsale Del Diavolo (The Deserter) ... CD
Legend (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool and oddly complex score from Piero Piccioni to film La Spina Sorsale Del Diavolo, aka The Deserter – a mix of orchestral movements, jazzier touches and tense western string accents! There's definitely a spaghetti score vibe to the record – but there's so much more going on, too – including some very elaborate waves of color and tone, which are balanced with more dramatically punctuated numbers! Strings step in fully at some points, while percussion dominates at others – and there's a sense of isolation in some of the numbers that's especially brilliant. This expanded soundtrack features material from once lost stereo master tapes of the original sessions. Includes "The Ambush", "The Escape", "Act Of Courage", "The Devil's Backbone", "The Fort", "Deserters", "The Camp", "Nocturne", "To The Border", and "Dangerous Mission". Almost 75 minutes of music!

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLe Mani Sulla Citta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great early soundtrack from Piero Piccioni – handled by the maestro in a mix of jazz and some of the groovier touches he'd bring to his late 60s scores – really changing things up nicely between some piano-led groovers, organ numbers, and a few other tunes that use this really great echoey electric bass – quite sinister, but really propulsive too! The album's a great one from that time when the Italian scene was still reveling in crime jazz, but also developing new ideas too – and this release of the music makes the first time that more than just a few of the tracks from the original EP have appeared on vinyl. Titles include "Banda", "Lounge Music", "Notte Di Rod", and "Le Mani Sulla Citta" – plus other variations on those titles. LP, Vinyl record album

Digitmovies (Italy), 1987/1988. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of 80s Italian soundtracks – served up here in a double length set, with a heck of a lot of bonus tracks too! First up is Piero Piccioni's big score for Un Tassinaro A New York – aka Taxi Driver in New York, a follow-up to the first Alberto Sordi Tassinaro film – scored by Picconi with a style that's surprisingly warm and sweet for an 80s comedy – maybe more strings than you'd expect, and a fair bit of jazz, too! There's a few whimsical numbers, but most of the instrumentation is full and rich – without some of those tinnier moments that comedies of the period could sometimes hit. CD features a whopping 36 tracks of music by Piccioni – the full album, and lots of bonus film versions and alternates! Next up is Una Botta Di Vita – an 80s soundtrack by Manuel De Sica, and scored at a level that certainly shows he hadn't lost his touch! The main theme is pretty lively, with almost a tropical sort of vibe – to fit the beach setting of some of the movie – and the CD serves up 14 variations on the theme, all with different styles – one sax-heavy, one with a trombone, one with a disco groove, and so on!

Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
A jazzy gem from Piero Piccioni – the composer who turned out some of the best spy soundtracks on the 60s Italian scene! The album's got all the best early touches of the maestro – a style that's rooted in jazz, but steps out in other mod directions too – all with the kind of vibrant, playful touches needed to support the on-screen images in this sub-Bond story! The tunes are mostly short, and work together beautifully in a hip tapestry of themes – often with a stepping piano carving out the familiar theme, but amidst shifting instrumentation that's sometimes a bit exotic, sometimes a bit jazzier – in a great 60s sort of way. The title theme – "Le Ore Del Sole" – features vocals by Orietta Berti, and the CD features 22 tracks in all! CD

Cinevox/Saimel (Spain), 1968. Used ... $19.99
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

Giovanni FuscoDeserto Rosso ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... About June 1, 2017 (delayed)
One of the weirdest, wildest soundtracks we've heard from the Italian scene of the 60s – a score that has lots of cool electronic touches from Vittorio Gelmetti, who brings in some really moody moments at times! Also unusual is the use of a wordless female voice – not in a style that's as melodic as Edda Dell'Orso, but almost electronic in itself – which creates some almost-Eraserhead moments when mixed with the electronics! Yet other passages are jazzy, or more familiar – which makes the whole thing come across as this incredible pastiche of sounds that's quite unusual – on titles that include "Astrale", "Happy Surf", "La Favola", and "Nevrosi". Side two features "Il Surf Della Luna" in a suite – with passages by Giovanni Fusco, Piero Umiliani, Piero Piccioni, Gino Marinacci, and Roby Poitevin. LP, Vinyl record album

Did anyone actually ever see this movie? Even if not, the music's pretty darn great! The film's a weird comedy directed by John Rich, and starring the unlikely team of Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis – plus some hotties as stewardesses. The best part, most likely, is this fab soundtrack by Neal Hefti – which has many great touches that result in some extremely groovy material! There's some especially nice numbers on the set that mix organ and guitar with larger backing, creating a sound that's much more like late 60s work by Piero Piccioni than Hefti's usual style. A few tunes are more serious, but overall, the soundtrack's a nice one – and is also graced by an excellent cover that sums up the goofy film with a nice cartoony image. Titles include "More Blues For Bertha", "Senor Boeing", "English Breakfast", "Frenchie", "Girl Chasin", and "Champagne Promises". LP, Vinyl record album

An incredibly cool little package – especially if you dig funky grooves from 70s Italian police films! The book alone is almost worth the price – a 64 page hardcover tome that presents full color reproductions of 70s movie posters, images from the films, and filmographies for a few of the key actors in these gripping dramas. But added to this great book is a killer CD – filled with funky tracks all picked by Cinedelic Records, with an ear towards the kinds of drums, basslines, and keyboards that have helped these older Italian soundtrack gems stay alive with a younger funky generation. CD features a whopping 22 tracks in all – with titles that include "Il Grande Racket" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, "Montreal Non Stop" by Luis Bacalov, "Tira A Rezza Oj Piscatore" by Raoul, "Folk & Violence" by Franco Micalizzi, "Sangue Di Sbirro" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "L'Intoccabile Mr Cliff" by Riz Ortolani, "La Polizia Chiede Aiuto" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Preludio" by Osanna, "Gangster Story" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, "Inseguimento E Fuga (2)" by Ennio Morricone, and "Kidnap" by Piero Piccioni.

Sweet bossa nova from the European scene – almost all of it from the kinds of late 60s Italian soundtracks that took the best elements of the style from Brazil, then expanded it into a whole new groovy style of its own! The music here certainly has lots of the snapping rhythms and breezy melodies you'll know from classic bossa nova – but the arrangements are often a lot more ambitious, and add in all these cool, groovy, and mod touches – including bits of organ, electric guitar, scat vocals, and other musical elements that resonate strongly with the best modernist vibe of the Italian 60s world of film. Titles include "Anice Nuraghi" by Luis Bacalov, "La Matriarca" by Armando Trovajoli, "Mr Dante Fontana" by Piero Piccioni, "Samba In Tribunale" by Ennio Morricone, "Bob & Hellen" by Piero Umiliani, "Bikini Bossa" by Gianni Dell'Orso, "Il Colpo" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Bossa In California" by Marcello Gigante, "Pedone L'Africano" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, and "Aspetto Ancora Un Giorno" by Piero Piccione.

Great jazzy moments from the best years of European cinema – a collection that starts out with the French New Wave, then moves into a range of great sounds from the Italian and French scene of the 60s and early 70s! Most of the music here isn't straight jazz – and instead, the cuts mix some strong instrumental solos with groovy, swinging, and upbeat arrangements – that fantastic use of jazz in film scores that the European scene of the 60s really took up and ran with – into places that were often much cooler, much more interesting than American soundtracks of the time! The collection's filled with great little gems that really work well in each others' company – and titles include "Those Lazy Days" by Armando Trovajoli, "Number One Superman" by Piero Piccioni, "Jazz Interludio" by Giorgio Gaslini, "La Preda" by Vince Tempera & Franco Bixio, "Astaroth" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Eva" by Michel Legrand, "Una Gita Mancata" by Ennio Morricone, and "Fiacre" by Georges Delerue.

A killer compilation of rare Italian soundtrack treasures from the mid 60s to mid 70s – a decade's span of time with myriad groovy influences! Esterno Giorno is the second in a pair (so far...we're hoping for a series) of lovingly assembled soundtrack funk compilations put together by the Four Flies label, who were granted access to long neglected corners of the RCA archives. It's a stylistically fruitful period to say the least, with shades of the mod, psych, funk, soul, prog eras – smartly put together here with common elements holding it together in a cohesive whole – thanks in large part of driving percussion throughout. It's fantastic stuff, most of which has gone unreleased since the films screened back in the day! 16 tracks in all: "Stasera Mi Butto" by Gianfranco Riverberi, "Amore Formula 2" by Guycen, "Nell'Anno Della Luna" by Gino Conte, "Lovemaker" by Armando Trovajoli, "Nude Calde E Pure" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Posto Ideale Per Uccidere" by Bruno Lauzi, "Le Belve" by Nico Fidenco, "Femmina" by Carlo Savina, LP, Vinyl record album

VariousItalian Girls Like Ear-Catching Melodies ... CD
Dagored (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
Despite the cloying title of this one, the set's a very sweet collection of Italian 70's themes with a groovy sexy sound to them. There's perhaps more of a camp feel than usual (if you can believe that!), with sounds that have a bit of a Barbarella-ish feel, or sort of a Euro b-grade erotic quality. There's some nice mellow moments with spare electric keyboards, in sort of a Morricone style, and others with good rolling basslines. Titles include "Louise" and "Theme For A Murderer" by Armando Trovajoli, "La Bella Signora" and "One More Time" by Piero Piccioni, "La Storia Comincia" by Guido De Angelis, "Diamanti Swing" by Francesco De Masi, "What Is This Love" by Franco De Gemini, "Susan & Jane" by Riz Ortolani, and "Il Sorriso Della Ieana M6" by Roberto Pregadio. Nicely packaged in a sexy cover, and with a nice pace of grooves! CD

✨✧ Braen's MachineUnderground (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jerry GoldsmithIn Like Flint ... LP
20th Century, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jerry Goldsmith continues his 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBeat At Cinecitta Vol 3 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The latest masterpiece in this fab fab series! Like the other versions, this one grabs wild funky and groovy tunes from lost Italian exploitation films of the 60s and 70s – a virtual treasure trove of incredible tunes! The cuts blast together one into the other, rolling along on a mad groove plucked out of time, mixing crime and jazz and funk and sleaze into a blend as beautiful as the lovely set of notes inside. Some of the cuts on this CD have shown up on other compilations, but the overall quality of the packaging is incredibly high, and the set sounds great together. Tracks include "Tema Di Oscar" by Berti Pisano, "Il Profeta" by Armando Trovajoli, "L'Eta Del Malessere" by Stefano Torossi, "Amore Amore Amore" by Piero Piccioni, "Playgirl 70" by Piero Piccioni, "Right Or Wrong" by Piero Piccioni, "Crazy", by Wes & The Airdales, "Let's Find Out" by Isabel Bond, and "Quand Ero Un Bebe" by Il Cantori Moderni.

✨✧ VariousCinevox – The History Of Soundtrack (Limited Edition 4 CD Box Set) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Well, the title's a bit ambitious – and sets a goal that it can hardly live up to – but this is still a great little set! This nicely-priced 4CD package isn't really an overview of the "history" of soundtracks – but it is a wonderful collection of Italian cinematic goodies, pulled from the rich catalog of Cinevox Records! The set's divided up into 4 genres – one for each CD – Western, Comedy, Horror, and Police Thrillers. Overall, the work ranges from groovy upbeat tunes, including some excellent bossa-inspired numbers, to spaghetti western classics, to dark and turgid horror themes, and back to a few nice funky tracks. There's a total of 55 tracks in all, and the set features work by soundtrack composers that include Stelvio Cipriani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Riz Ortolani, Goblin, Ennio Morricone, Gianni Ferrio, Augusto Martelli, Carlo Rustichelli, Piero Umiliani, and Francesco De Masi. Most of the work on the set has already been issued in full soundtrack form by Cinevox, but at this price, it's a great way to check out the music! CD

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 9 – The Ultimate Cinematic Compendium ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... 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!

Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... 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!
