Waxwork, 1981. New Copy Gatefold
Beautiful music for this early 80s horror classic – a film that gets a bit more serious musical treatment than some of its contemporaries! In an era when so many horror composers were turning towards a keyboard-heavy sound, Pino Donaggio still has plenty of full orchestrations here – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paganini Horror
Beat/Subsound (Italy), 1989. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A zombie with a violin – could there be anything spookier? Maybe not, especially when set to great 80s period music by Vince Tempera – who you may know from more famous 70s Italian work teamed up with the two Bixia brothers! The music here has lots of electronic elements – beats ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Beautifully weird music for this completely bizarre Italian horror film – one that's got as much sex as it does slash – which you might guess from the "secret orgy" in the title! The tunes are a strange variety of numbers – with shifting instrumentation that can feature ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" ... LP, Vinyl record album
School Daze
Dark Entries, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Rare work from Patrick Cowley – an artist who most folks know for music with Sylvester in the 80s, but heard here on a selection of tracks he did for porno films at the same time! The music has lots of the sweet electro touches of Cowley's singles for the clubs – post-disco funk, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A weird later Ennio Morricone soundtrack – and one with some surprising use of electronics and keyboards too! The maestro has used electric instrumentation on other scores, but this one has a pretty different feel – a handful of tracks that have more of a future-sounding quality, ... LP, Vinyl record album
I Pugni In Tasca
CAM/Dagored (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A spooky early score from Ennio Morricone – recorded in the mid 60s, but with some of the best dark touches of his 70s work! I Pugni In Tasca has a very spare sound – weird wordless vocals on the main title track, then really moody music that almost lies beyond the frontiers of hearing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Revolver
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Dark genius from Ennio Morricone – a surprising album that's one of his best-remembered from the time! Unlike a lot of other 70s composers, who would write a very groovy upbeat score for a police film – Morricone took the task very seriously, and composed some of his darkest work for ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Dagored (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Great stuff – a very different Morricone soundtrack, with some incredible features! The score is for a dark film about a gangster avenging the death of his sister, and the music features a chorus of wordless vocals, sparse string passages, pipe organ, and some weirdly fuzzed-out keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy
Seminal Italian cop sounds from Stelvio Cipriani – penned for a key film in the poliziottesco genre in the 70s! The music here steps nicely off the style of Morricone at the time – these cool stepping orchestrations that have this inherent groove, even when moving slow – and lots ... LP, Vinyl record album
Il Prefetto Di Ferro
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music! Il Prefetto Di Ferro has a core sound that's very much in keeping with Morricone's approach to crime and cop films – a bit warmer and funkier at times than his horror ... LP, Vinyl record album
Link (aka Extrasensorial)
Dagored (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A rarer soundtrack by Ennio Morricone – done in the early 80s, but with a definitely reminiscient of some of his eerier grooves of the 70s! The Link (aka Extrasensorial) is a spooky little horror film – and one that's served up here in some equally dark instrumentation – but which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Le Samourai (with bonus tracks)
Rambling (Japan), 1967. New Copy
One of the darkest soundtracks ever from the wonderful Francois De Roubaix – a moody, brooding score that really fits the solitary spirit of the main character! There's still plenty of those cool De Roubaix elements in the mix – even some weird melodies on organ and electronics – ... CD
Il Consigliori
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A beautifully balanced Italian soundtrack from the 70s – not just the straight crime score you might expect, but a record that really fleshes things out with a lot of depth! True, some of the most compelling cuts are the funky ones you'd expect from such a film, but these are often offset by ... LP, Vinyl record album
L'Insegnante
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy
A playful little soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – maybe not as sex-drenched as you might expect from the cover image, but still pretty nice overall! The music marks that mid 70s shift back towards lighter comedic melodies that some of the composers were using at the time – almost a ... CD
In Pop
Beat (Italy), 2016. New Copy
One of the stranger projects we've ever heard from the Beat Records soundtrack label – a set of tracks that really lives up to the kid-styled image on the cover – mainly because the vocals here are mostly by a kid-assembled choir! The songs are all tunes from films – music by ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1986. New Copy
A a nice mid 80s Italian comedy soundtrack Bruno Zambini – his work from 1986's Scuola Di Ladri – with 80s style keys and period European dancefloor soul influences in the mix – not as much on the goofy side as we remembered, and lots of fun! There's some definite traces of ... CD
2 Samurai Per 100 Geishe/Franco Ciccio E La Vedove Allegre
Digitmovies (Italy), 1963/1968. New Copy
A pair of groovy Italian comedy scores from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! 2 Samurai Per 100 Geishe has a cover that almost looks like a Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis film poster – and the music is reminiscent of some of the scores for their movies, too – a series of playful ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s/2007. New Copy 5CD
A huge array of groovy genius from the mighty Lalo Schifrin – the South America jazzman who first rose to fame in the group of Dizzy Gillespie, the moved on to give us some of the coolest film scores of the 60s! This set brings together eight of Lalo's best albums from that period, plus a ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1975/1978. New Copy 2CD
A strange soundtrack to an even stranger-sounding film about some crazy drifters in the old west! The film's got lots of groovy guitar-based tracks with kind of a light spacey sound, and some weird hippieish vocals in the background – a lot more tripped out than you might expect for the ... CD
