Stelvio Cipriani —
Femina Ridens ... LP CAM/Four Flies (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)...
About June 1, 2019
A wonderful soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani – penned for this 1969 Italian thriller with psycho-sexual overtones, and done with music that has elements of both! At some points, Cipriani has all the erotic touches of his best early 70s work – but at others, he uses late 60s modes that ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Stelvio Cipriani at his funkiest – taking all the lessons learned from his slinky, erotic sounds of the early 70s – and turning them into a mix of sweet sounds with a great late 70s vibe! Some tracks are upbeat and almost have a clubby feel, others have a great slow-stepping approach ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
A mighty 70s soundtrack from the duo of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – scored for a mondo film set in Africa, but done with a style that's often like some of their more familiar Italian material of the time! Action, drama, and comedy each get musical time in the spotlight – and the ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
A groovy take on the Zorro sound of yore – put together by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis for a hip 70s version of the character! The style here mixes some older Italian western modes with touches of "Mexican" instrumentation to set the scene – but there's also a brighter ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
A definite killer from the great Gianni Ferrio – one of his grooviest soundtracks ever, and a set that's filled with lots of mod 60s touches! There's a bit of electric sitar, cool bubbling Hammond, and even some jazzy horn parts that make for nice flourishes over the top – all changing ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pretty modern work from Konitz – recorded in Rome in 1968, with a French rhythm section of Martial Solal on piano, Henry Texier on bass, and Daniel Humair on drums. The presence of Solal especially gives the session an edge – as Kontiz drifts into Solal's moody, introspective mode of ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese gatefold pressing – very nice, with insert! Cover has some light wear.)
A very nice score to this prime Bruce Lee film – and a lot cooler than usual for John Barry! The score is a mix of orchestral and funky bits – but even the orchestral moments have some great effects and sounds in them, and the funkier stuff has a great 70s cop show sort of feel. The ...

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 ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Ennio Morricone —
Grazie Zia ... LP CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)...
A really amazing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – presented here with the full range of tracks for the first time ever! The music uses some wonderful vocals – sung in a style that's pop, but very creepy too – that way that Morricone vocals can have of being almost chant-like, ...

Some of the grooviest film music we've ever heard from Nora Orlandi – a nicely varied set of tracks done for a late 60s film that features four different sexual adventures! Given the story shifts, there's also a mood shift in the music – upbeat and jazzy at some points, mellow and ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD

Piero Piccioni —
Camille 2000 ... CD Camille 3000 (Italy), 1970. New Copy ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest classics from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – a set that perfectly brings together all the funky, jazz, and mod-styled touches of the great Piero Piccioni – on a record that's maybe had more life over the years than the film did on the screen! The ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
A relatively early dramatic score from Piero Piccioni – yet one that also really shows his ongoing talent for scoring the urban landscape! The film is set in Athens during WWII, and Piccioni scores the scenes with this very melancholy style that indicates the unsure sense of victory at the ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD

Play Morricone ... CD CAM (Italy), 2001. Used ...
Out Of Stock
A great idea – jazz piano trio versions of Morricone soundtrack tunes, played here by Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi, with backing by Marc Johnson on bass and Joey Baron on drums. The team of Johnson and Baron have a perfect touch of lyricality to open these tunes up – taking lesser- ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
Beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
A much more playful album than you'd guess from the action image on the cover – scored by Carlo Rustichelli with some of the best modes he used in 60s Italian comedies! The instrumentation is really great – a sly blend of jazzy and mod bits, often changing up within a single track ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Lively sounds from Ultime Grida Dalla Savana – a 70s exploitation film that continued the "wild world" tradition of films like those in the Mondo Cane series! The setting here is the African savanna, but the music is mostly orchestral – a combination of driving themes that ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Carlo Savina penned the score for this film about the great liberator of Venezuela – and for the project, he also got a bit of help from that nation's groovy composer Aldemaro Romero! Romero's only credited with a few tracks on the record, but much of the music seems to borrow from his ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
Amazing music from Laurance Vanay – actually a recording name for Jacqueline Thibault, a hell of a great keyboardist but an artist the label thought would be better off billed as a man! The sound here is halfway between the spacey experiments of Brian Eno and Cluster, and some of the more ... (Rock) read moreCD
