CD (Item 831877) Deja Vu (Italy), Late 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

A gorgeous bit of bossa jazz from Italy – and a key non-soundtrack album from the great Alessandro Alessandroni! The session's a bit more jazz-based than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack work from the 60s, but in a good way – one that really opens up the tunes, and provides for some spontaneous improvisation that only deepens their spirit and sound. The lovely Edda Dell'Orso sings wordless vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a cool and groovy way that's almost even better than her famous soundtrack recordings. Some tracks have organ, others have acoustic piano – but the whole thing's grooving very nicely all the way through – with the kind of dreamy dreamy sound we'd rank right up there with the best coming out of Italy at the time! Titles include "Meccanico", "Primavera", "Introverso", "Bossa Italiana", "Beat For Love", "Hammurabi", and "Psichedelico". (Out of print.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

A great one from Gianni Marchetti – the Italian composer we know best for his work on The Wild Eye, but who sounds equally great on this set too! The best tracks have a heavy rhythm at the bottom – not really funky, but kind of mod, and a bit more off-kilter on the slower numbers ... CD

Beat (Italy), 1985. Used
A richly playful soundtrack from Bruno Zambrini – scored for the fourth film in the very popular Fantozzi series – and maybe even more offbeat than all the previous three soundtracks put together! There's no returning current of music at any one time – and instead, the whole ... CD

A really great soundtrack from Gruff Rhys – a set that's maybe even more personal and beautiful than some of his more familiar records on his own! The music's for a film about the first week that poet Dylan Thomas spent in America in the 50s – but the sound is quite different from any ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1965. Used
Blood, sandals, and plenty of man-on-man action – all set to dramatic themes here from Franceso DeMasi – who's holding onto more of the late 50s gladiator modes than you'd expect from the date of the film! All the older Italian exotic touches are firmly in place – well-tuned ... CD

Two of Dean Martin's greatest early albums for Capitol on one CD! Dino was always more of a singles artist than an LP artist – but these two albums are some of his few fully-conceived albums, much more in the Sinatra 50s mode than some of the other "hits plus filler" or "songs ... CD
