(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

The genius of Ennio Morricone – heard here in 2 different settings! Un Esercito Di 5 Uomini is a late 60s spaghetti western – but as usual with Morricone, the sound is way beyond the obvious – and comes across here with these fierce, dark musical lines that juxtapose sweeter strings with heavier percussion and some stark, fuzzy guitar bits! Franco De Gemini plays a bit of harmonica on the tracks, and titles include "Muerte Donde Vas", "Cinque Amici Cinque Eroi", "I Bambini E I Fiori", and "Contro Il Tempo". Extrasensorial is a spooky little horror film – and one that's served up here in some equally dark instrumentation – but which sometimes has that redemptive quality that we love in some of Morricone's best work from the time. There's some great watery arrangements on a few tracks – drifting out isolated instrumentation through larger backings in a really brilliant way – and titles include "Through His Eyes", "Video Telepathy", "The Link", "Mirror", and "Sinister".  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

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 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 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 ... CD

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), 1976. Used
An Italian comedy take on the story of Robinson Crusoe – one that's served up with lots of light musical touches, thanks to the team of Guido and Maurizio DeAngelis! The music here is a blend of tropical themes and some of the comedic 70s modes you'd guess from the cover art – rootsier ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1983. Used
Two creepy old guys, with giant balls of yarn, slowly unraveling a dress worn by a sexy starlet – probably everything you need to know about the movie and the record, summed up by the goofy image on the cover! The score is definitely in the more playful Italian comedic modes of the early 80s ... CD
Quella Villa In Fondo Al Parco/L'Aldila
Beat (Italy), 1981/1988. Used
Very dark horror from the Italian 80s scene – 2 incredibly creepy soundtracks back to back! Fabio Frizzi did the score to L'Aldila – with a style that's got some of the same electronics used on his other work from the time, mixes with freer, floating orchestrations that do a good job ... CD
Monstrous Movie Music, 1958. Used
A pair of creepy soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is Missile To The Moon – a score that seems to end its object into space through an array of short, dramatic moments – which build in tension nicely with lots of dark corners and edges, before bursting forward ... CD

Riz Ortolani was a film score giant in the 60s, but he was still going strong well into the 80s, too – as you'll hear on his excellent soundtrack for this film! The story's a relatively serious one, and so is the music by Ortolani – very much in the mode of his most careful, most ... CD
Twisted Nerve (UK), 2016. Used
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
