Riz OrtolaniZeder ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A really different soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – at least if you only know his bigger, more dramatic work of the 60s! Here, Riz is falling very nicely into the spirit of the Italian horror generation of the late 70s and early 80s – mixing his sense of fuller orchestrations with some leaner moments that definitely fit the spirit of the film – some of the colder keyboard lines that others might have used, but warmed up in a nice way by the maestro – who also really uses a strong ear for darker tones and other elements in a really great way! Things aren't all electric at all – as Ortolani's still got access to a bigger budget that allows him to bring in some of the best sort of studio instrumentation – which really helps keep things interesting throughout.

Sugar/Decca (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 39.99
One of the first big international soundtracks to come from the Italian scene in the 60s – the start of a great run that would continue through the decade, although maybe not with results as strongly as this! The score is for a strange documentary-like film (the title means "World Gone To The Dogs"), and most of the tunes are dramatic – with a sweeping orchestral feel that has a few light instrumental moments. The big fame of this one is that it contains the theme that went onto become the 60s vocal standard "More" – but in this version, it's kind of submerged, and taken at a much slower pace – a theme that appears here and there, but also mixed with other really lively numbers too – always shifting the mood, to match the different settings in the film. Titles include "Free Way", "Models In Blue", "Life Savers Girls", "The Last Flight", "Dog Heat", "Cargo Cult", and "Purgatory". New expanded version – features a whopping 36 tracks in all – way more than the original album! LP, Vinyl record album
