Armando TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1972. Used ... $14.99
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembered albums from the glory years of the Italian soundtracks – a sense of space, pacing, and timing that are simply breathtaking – and which are the perfect summation of Trovajoli's earlier experiments in music. As with his score to La Matriarca, the instrumentation here varies often – sometimes a bit of horns, nicely compressed; sometimes a floating harmonica line; sometimes keyboards; and sometimes a funky rhythm topped with vocals – all woven together in a rich pastiche of styles that makes the album one of the deepest soundtracks you'll hope to own from the time. The remastering here is wonderful – way better than the previous Japanese reissues, and done in a way that really isolates the best elements of the music – letting the simple balance of sound and space resonate beautifully, and exposing even more of Trovajoli's genius with a wealth of bonus tracks. These added numbers really open the whole thing up – taking the album way past the familiar "Sessomatto" theme (reworked and remixed for the dancefloor often in later years), and almost creating a mini-movie in sound – with all the requisite scene shifts and drama to match! CD features a whopping 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Sessomatto", "Signora Sono Le Otto", "Two Happy People", "Ammuri Ammuri", "D'Amore Si Muore", "Un Amore Difficile", "Due Cuori E Una Birra", "Bravo Balli bene", "Scappa Gilda", "Vorrei Che Fosse Amore", "Searching For Something", and "L'Ospite".

✨✧ VariousBossa In Italy – An Excursion Into The Italian Way To Bossa-Nova & Beyond ... CD
GDM (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
From the cover of this one, you'd think the Italian Way to bossa nova meant that you had to run around without your shirt on! However, past the cheesy packaging – or maybe in addition to it, depending on your perspective – this is a killer set of bossa-tinged groovers from Italy, mostly pulled from rare soundtracks of the 60s, featuring a beautiful selection of tunes that may not be the most "autentico" when it comes to the sound, but which are filled to the brim with the light dreamy spirit of the bossa, a mixture of sad and playful instrumentation that's a delight throughout! There's some great organ and guitar on the set – and plenty of the percussion that makes a bossa number great – and titles include "Mexican Lounge" by Ennio Morricone, "Parangua" by Luis Bacalov, "Diva Samba (new edit)" by Armando Trovajoli, "Rhumba Shake" by Armando Trovajoli, "Belinda May" by Ennio Morricone, "Alla Serenita" by Ennio Morricone, "L'Amica" by Luis Bacalov, "Bossa Beat" by Piero Piccioni, "L'Arcangelo (new edit)" by Piero Umiliani, and "Sambinha" by Piero Piccioni. CD
(Please note that there is a crack on the digipack case but it's in overall good shape.)

VariousEasy Tempo Vol 5 – A Slammin' Cinematic Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Slammin's a definite good choice for the title of this one – as this 5th entry in the Easy Tempo series seems even funkier than the other volumes – a set that's got plenty of full-on grooves, hand-picked from the genius Italian soundtrack years of the 60s and 70s! If you're looking for a place to start digging the full range of talents of the maestros of this time, you'd be hard pressed to find a better collection – as the Easy Tempo name always means the best bits from this scene, served up in a package that packs a lot more punch than any single individual soundtrack! Titles include "Loco Love Motor" and "The Frog" by Augusto Martelli, "Montreal Non Stop" and "Anice Nuraghi" by Luiz Bacalov, "L'Arcangelo" by Piero Umiliani, "Running Fast" by Stefano Torossi, "Blazing Magnum" by Armando Trovajoli, "Trop's" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Vuca" by Tony Mimms, and "The Chicken" by Dick Oliver.

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 4 – A Kaleidoscopic Collection Of Exciting & Diverse Cinematic Themes ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... 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.
