Fratello Sole Sorella Luna

LP (Item 394185) G&G (Italy), Mid 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
Beautiful sounds from Riz Ortolani – a much more serious score than some of his work in the 60s, and a set that's almost got a Morricone-like majesty at times! Orchestrations are full, but have some nicely isolated instrumentation – which crafts these melodies that are simple, but powerful – quite seductive, with just a little – and a few tracks feature vocals from Claudio Baglioni. There's a lot less whimsy here than in Ortolani's 60s scores, and the overall sound is relatively mellow, with a slight spiritual bent created through use of chorus vocals on some numbers. Titles include "Fratello Sole Sorella Luna", "Lullaby", "Udienza Papale", "Francesco Va Solo Nel Mondo", and "Conversione Di Bernardo".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s issue. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
