Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy
Beautifully playful music from the great Piero Piccioni – done for a mid 60s film directed by and starring the Italian comedian Alberto Sordi, whose presence on screen is a great match for these sounds! Picconi uses some of his jazzy roots at times – including a cool bit of organ ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. New Copy
An album that's made in Italy, and made in a very groovy mode as well – as the set mixes up some very cool soundtrack styles from that country's hip scene of the 60s! The main theme almost has a western-like drive, while other cuts have weird organ lines that are almost Piccioni-like, and ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Classic Italian cop work from the mighty Stelvio Cipriani – one of the few Italian composers who can work in a heavily electric mode, yet still get the richness of that scene's more acoustic years! The music is heavy on guitar and keyboards – but not in the later way inspired by Goblin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A beautifully sensitive soundtrack for this early film from the team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – very different than most of the other western music of the time – which is a fitting accompaniment to the unique actions of the pair onscreen! There's a fair bit of acoustic guitar in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Milano Trema – La Polizia Vuole Giustizia
Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous Italian police soundtrack from the team of Guido and Maurizio De Angelis – one that has a haunting approach served up in equal parts action and sentiment! The core melody here is one right out of Morricone's book of the time – a slow-building, sweet-stepping one that's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roma Violenta
Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo ... CD
Henry May Long
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
Sublime soundtrack material from Max Richter – but work that dovetails perfectly with some of his more "serious" albums on Deutsche Grammophon! The music features Richter on piano, alongside two cellos, a violin, and viola – but sounding completely unlike piano and strings ... CD
Puppet On A Chain
Silva Screen, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nude Si Muore
Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy
One of the more obscure soundtracks from Italian maestro Carlo Savina – penned for a late 60s horror thriller in a very compelling mix of modes! There's definitely some of the darker sounds here you'd expect, but the score also has some very surprising light melodies that come as a stark ... CD
L'Harem (with bonus track)
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy
A surprisingly obscure soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – especially given that it was recorded at a time that's been quite well documented on record over the years! Yet the music here is also a bit different than the usual Morricone modes – just a handful of tracks, but longer too ... CD
La La Land, 1958/1959. New Copy
A great collection of rare soundtrack work by Jack Marshall – an artist you might know more for his instrumental albums on Capitol Records! The biggest part of the set features Jack's great score for Thunder Road – that excellent late 50s film that starred Robert Mitchum as a hot ... CD
CAM/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy
A really beautiful little soundtrack – and one that's quite different than all of the other late 70s scores that circulated under the Emmanuelle name! This film came out years before that big cycle of sexploitation movies – and also was not part of that series at all – and while ... CD
Cinema Of Quincy Jones
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
An earnest, kinda lovable hard rock soundtrack to the modern classic movie version of the earnest, TOTALLY lovable SNL-sketch Wayne's World! Naturally opening with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", thanks the flick's most unforgettable scene, the soundtrack is a goofy, but fun mix of glammy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls
20th Century, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
"It's not a sequel – there's never been anything like it." Finally, an awesome reissue of the classically groovy camp soundtrack to "king of the nudies" Russ Meyer's crazy non-sequel to Valley Of The Dolls – one of the greatest exploitation movies of all time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy
A set of groovy tunes from mad mid 60s French films – recorded in a variety of wild styles! The set features tracks from a number of movies directed by Georges Lautner – including Les Tontons Flingeurs, Les Barbouzes, Ne Nous Fachons Pas, and La Grande Sauterelle – all slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy
Killer cop/crime music from the Italian scene of the 70s – a famous genre soundtrack from composer Armando Trovajoli, who's usually known for his work in warmer, sexier styles! The grooves here are right up there with the best that Italy has to offer from the time – full, jazzy ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A welcome portrait of the late 60s mod jazz and funk inspired side of soundtrack maestro Armando Trovajoli! Not to be confused with other more sentimental "Famiglia" soundtracks by the legendary composer – which would be easy to do at just a glance of the cover – 1969's La ... LP, Vinyl record album
Four Flies (Italy), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold
Fuzzy funk-steeped Italian soundtrack grooves of the finest, funkiest early 70s caliber – rare and unreleased gems mined from the RCA Film Music Vaults – with choice bits by Francesco De Masi, Gianni Marchetti, Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, Piero Umiliani and many more! This is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Il Grande Racket
Sugar/Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Fierce funky sounds from Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – a duo who turned out some of the grooviest music on the Italian cop/crime scene of the 70s! The set's a killer right from the very first note – full of fuzz and funk, and lots of heavy rhythms at the bottom – all in a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
