CabildosWhere Is The Cat (clear orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sable/BTF (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99 39.99
Totally fantastic work from Cabildos – an obscure sound library project featuring Johnny Cabildo on keyboards and percussion, plus added grooves from Derek Wilson on drums! The sound here is plenty lean – a groove as spare as that instrumentation would imply, but wonderfully funky throughout – done with the richness of some early 70s Latin funk record, and none of the more polished modes you might be expecting from a recording in 1979! The whole thing's proof that on the Italian scene, the sound library market often offered artists like Cabildo greater freedom than a commercial label – where he was able to spin out gems like "Drumfire", "Jungle Piano", "Ritmo Total", "Tu Tu Ton Ton, "Where Is The Cat", "Quiet Strut", and "Sunny Latin".

Remigo DucrosAmerica Giovane (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Leo/BTF (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 39.99
A groovy set of sound library tunes from Remigio Ducros – a set dedicated to the liberated young Americans of the early 70s, who get a mighty nice soundtrack from the man himself! The tunes are a mix of full-on funk and laidback numbers – the latter of which still have a current of funk in the rhythms, but mixed with a bit more rock at times – sometimes acoustic, sometimes fuzzy and Hendrixy, a few points even with some harmonica – all with a more dynamic range than you might guess from a faceless sound library set! Ducros really spans the spectrum in his styles – as you might guess from titles that include "Campus Sit In", "Village Blues", "Black Congregation", "Country Feeling", "Sunday In Central Park", "Weekend Down Town", "Ride ON", "Hendrix Memento", "Black Not Coloured", and "The State Of Harlem".

Duello MadreDuello Madre (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
The only album ever issued in by Italian prog group Duello Madre – a rock combo, but one who have plenty of jazz-based elements in the mix – and occasionally a lot more funk than you'd hear from a similar group of their nature! The lineup boasts some great sax and flute work from Pippo Trentin – who can definitely hit some jazzier moments when he wants – but the guitars and bass take over often too – on these long-spun tracks that are right up there with the best Italian musicianship of the period – which, to those who know, can often beat the bigger UK groups of the time! The whole thing's got a richness that's unexpected, given the look of the cover – and titles include "Madre", "Duello", "Otto", "Momento", and "Aquile Blu". LP, Vinyl record album

Genco Pura & CoArea Di Servizio (clear red vinyl) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
A pretty great 70s set from the Italian scene – one that features contributions from avant composer Franco Battiato, but at a level that's very different than his own albums of the time! The songs are tuneful, and have lead vocals that are often compressed, with a bit of echo around the edges – which nudges them nicely down into the mix around the keyboards, for a cool spacey vibe that's almost like some of the more unusual Brazilian MPB of the time – catchy but offbeat at the same time! Titles include "Campane A Rotterdam", "A San Francisco", "La Mia Citta", "Piogia", "Biscotti E The", "Giorno D'Estate", and "Frontiere". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone/WA MozartTeorema – Original Soundtrack (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ariete/BTF (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 35.99
A great score for an incredible film! Teorema is a strange and wonderful early film by Pier Paolo Pasolini – and about half of the soundtrack was written by Ennio Morricone, in a mixture of dark, edgey themes, and some more groovy tunes with a great late 60s Italy feel – an early moment of genius for the maestro, augmented by some Mozart numbers that further complicate the soundtrack! The groovier material includes the beat-heavy "Fruscio Di Foglie Verdi", the bouncing wordless vocal "L'Ultima Corrida", and the jangly guitar instrumental "Beat No 3" – and other tunes include "Teorema", "Frammenti", and the "Messa Da Requiem" by WA Mozart, which is also used in the film – to very haunting effect!

New TrollsSenza Orario Senza Bandiera (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cetra/BTF (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A really pivotal record from this important Italian group of the 60s – a set that has them picking up a bit of majesty and trippiness that they would soon push forward in years to come – very much with the offbeat style you might guess from the cover! There's definitely a touch of the sad clown in the music – really heartfelt vocals that have a nicely downturning spirit next to the blend of acoustic instrumentation and more psychedelic elements – almost served up with the complexity of a much more ambitious production, and given some harder moments to really push things over the top! Titles include "Ho Veduto", "Tom Flaherty", "Padre O'Brien", "Tu Ricordi Joe", "Susy Forrester", and "Signore Io Sono Irish". LP, Vinyl record album

New Trolls/Luis BacalovConcerto Grosso Pour Les New Trolls (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Pierre Cardin/BTF (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A wicked mix of proggish rocking and funky jazz – totally great, thanks to some added orchestrations from soundtrack maestro Luis Bacalov! The record is easily one of the most interesting from New Trolls – kind of a blend of jazz-influenced rock with some higher-concept ideas – yet saved by the leaner needs of a soundtrack setting – so that nothing ever gets too overdone or overindulgent! There's some wonderful strings which really set the record apart from others of this nature – and there's definitely some Bacalov touches on the keyboards, too. Side one features the full "Concerto Grosso Pour Les New Trolls" – and side two features shorter tracks that are equally nice, one with some great funky flute! LP, Vinyl record album

OsannaL'Uomo (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/BTF (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 36.99
Exactly the kind of record that makes Italian 70s prog so great – a set that can stand equally strongly with the best British work of the period, but which also unabashedly has its own sound too! Osanna clearly have some jazz influence in their roots, but also work with a much more focused, heady sound here – modes that sometimes feature a bit of funky flute, other times the kind of fast-riffing guitar lines you might hear in a rock club scene in some great Italian crime film – all layered together with impeccable production, and this non-stop energetic drive that hardly makes you realize you can't understand the language of the lyrics! The whole thing's wonderful – plenty powerful, but never posturing – and titles include "Vado Verso Una Meta", "In Un Vecchio Cieco", "L'Amore Vincera Di Nuova", "Everybody's Gonna See You Die", and "L'Uomo".

Osanna/Luis BacalovMilano Calibro 9 (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Fonit/BTF (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 36.99
Heavily percussive jamming from the Italian scene of the early 70s – an album done in collaboration with Italian soundtrack composer Luis Bacalov – who handled all the arrangements and orchestrations for the record! The core approach is a harder take on modes explored by Bacalov and contemporaries in their film scores – stark, bold sounds that have a bit of jazz and a bit of groove – played here with more force than on the usual soundtrack album, and in a way that often uses heavy guitars. The style's almost like that of Goblin scores, but without the keyboards – and while there's a bit of vocals on the record, the main focus is really on the instrumentation overall. Recorded as a soundtrack, but performed as an extended rock orchestra piece – with passages that include "Preludio", "Tema", "Canzona", and assorted "Variaziones". LP, Vinyl record album

Quella Vecchia LocandaQuella Vecchia Locanda (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Help/BTF (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 36.99
The fantastic debut of this Italian prog powerhouse – the kind of record that instantly has the scene going up with the best sounds and styles offered up by the UK supergroups of the time! All the best elements are firmly in place here – sharp time changes, impeccable musicianship, and a sense of soaring majesty that really seeks to lift the whole record out of the more familiar mainstream modes of the time! The group serve up lots of great lines on flute, mellotron, and organ – and the guitar, bass, and drums are pretty wonderful too – achieving a nice balance between instrumental strengths and vocal moments on titles that include "Realta", "Immagini Sfocate", "Dialogo", "Verso La Locanda", "Un Villaggio Un Illusione", and "Il Cieco".

✨✧ ArawakBackground Music No 4 (clear orange vinyl) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cover, artist, and notes are a bit obscure – but the album's got a wonderful sound throughout – and a sense of richness that means that the music here is way more than just some inconsequential sounds for the background! Arawak is the pseudonym of Italian composer Luicano Simoncini – an obscure artist, to be sure – but one who works here in a keyboard-drenched mix of slinky grooves that feels a lot like the best early 70s soundtrack material from Stelvio Cipriani – light strings warming up the background, and a nice sense of spaciousness that really lets the slow-stepping tunes find their groove! Titles include "Pretura", "Nel Tempo", "Missili", "Una Lettera Dal Passato", "Londra 1965", "Estate A Parigi", "Secolo XX", "Training", and "Ossigeno Nascente". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniAfrica Addio (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Rizzoli/BTF (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little soundtrack from the great Riz Ortolani – maybe not as striking as you'd expect from the cover, but a record that's filled with all sorts of wonderfully-penned moments! Ortolani is at his most sensitive here – not going for the kind of heavy-handed representation that others might use, but instead crafting these beautiful orchestrations that are almost an update of some of the modes used during the neo-realist generation, but with some more focused Nino Rota-like melodies too. This European version of the score has more material than the American release – and titles include "I Mercenari", "Il Massaro Di Maidopei", "Cape Town"," Prima Del Diluvio", "La Decimazione", "Goodbye Mister Turnbull", and "Il Nono Giorno".

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniRitmo Dell'Industria #2 ... LP
Grand Prix/BTF (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The sound of industry, circa 1969 Italy – which means that everything sounds a heck of a lot groovier than you might expect! Soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni handled the album – and it's completely fantastic right from the very first note – nothing like an industrial album, nor even some of the peppier "industry themed" sound library sets of the European postwar theme – and instead, the music is full of jazzy elements and cool wordless vocals – especially those scatting styles you'd know from Alessandroni's work with I Cantori Modern! Tremendous throughout – and quite possibly one of the grooviest albums the composer has ever given us. Titles include "Moto Blues", "Dialogando", "Circolazione", "Basso Regime", "Vie Motrici", "Escursione", and "Numero Uno". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alessandro Alessandroni/Francesco DeMasiLesbo (180 gram limited edition pressing) ... LP
Beat/BTF (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy elements on piano, sax, and organ – shifting instrumentation that really keeps things interesting throughout, and which makes the record feel like some rich narrative on its own, in sound – without any need for the images on the screen. The whole thing is wonderful – one of those Italian soundtrack treasures that delivers even more than it promises – and music was composed by Alessandro Alessandroni and Francesco De Masi, then orchestrated by De Masi, with some cool wordless vocal moments as well. Titles include a number of variations on "Lesbo" plus the sweet vocal opener "Qualsiasi Cosa", "Crepuscolo Sul Mare", and "IL'Isola Dell'Amore". LP, Vinyl record album

BTF (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very obscure sounds from a very obscure Italian crime film of the 70s – issued here for the first time ever! The music has a great vibe – slinky, but also a bit offbeat – with some of those odd tunings of the piano that you might hear in an Ennio Morricone score when he was still keeping things groovy, but wanting to set a nice edge – spun out nicely here amidst some gentle strings and other unusual sounds! The whole thing's great – a real lost treasure that finally sees the light of day – with titles that include "Lo Spinello", "In Discoteca", "Overdose", "L'Inseguimento Finale", "Nel Vecchio Mulino", "Titoli Di Coda", "La Droga Uccide", and "L'Agguato Al Corriere".

America's never sounded better than in the hands of Italian sound library talent Daniela Casa – who does a great job here of serving up all these cool tracks that would have been right at home in a film set during the 70s! The music is a mix of themes that evoke different slices of the American experience – almost all of them with keyboards, and most with a nice current of funk as well – plenty of action elements that resonate nicely with the best Italian soundtracks of the crime/cop variety from the same stretch in time! Titles include "Icarus", "Big Sur", "Spiralys", "Beta Lady", "NYC 42nd", "Fix", "Third World Tango", "Puertorico Slum", "Soft Bird", and "Kentucky Fried Chicken". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Ultimo Treno Della Notte (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox/BTF (Italy), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A train-based thriller, with a very tense score from Ennio Morricone – one that often makes you feel the movement of the train in its rhythms – then intercuts the music with some really moody moments! The mix of quick-rolling and slow-moving elements is really great – and creates a feel that's unlike any other soundtrack we've ever heard – an approach that has us holding our breath one minute, then feeling relief the next. In addition to the train-like rhythms, there's also some off-tuned piano, spooky harmonica, and some cool sound effects – making for a really wonderful musical blend! The set features the vocal cut "A Flower Is All You Need", sung by Demis Roussos – plus the single and film mix of "Coincidenze", and 14 more tracks from the score. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeLa Stagione Dei Sensi (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Carosello/BTF (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lesser-known soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – but one of his grooviest moments of the late 60s! The score is a great blend of heavy and light – and blends together that wonderful floating Morricone style with some heavier, fuzzier tunes that show the late 60s period of the film – all making for a really fleshed-out sound, of the sort that you're usually likely to hear in some of Morricone's classics! The album includes one great number that's got an extended sitar solo, and a few more with hard-edged male vocals by Patrick Samson that almost feel like late 60s French pop! Titles include "Gloria", "Sytar", "Una Voce Allo Specchio", "Tell Me Tell Me", "Sospendi Il Tempo", "In Tre Quarti", "Laila Laila", and "Dinamica Per 5 + 1". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/BTF (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Morricone's scores for these two films in the Ringo series – both from Italy, and filled with tunes that are perhaps a bit more comical than some of Morricone's darker scoring for spaghetti westerns. Una Pistola has a number of "old timey" type tracks, and Il Ritorno is a bit darker – with some nice numbers that features I Cantori Moderni. Both soundtracks begin with cool numbers with English vocals – and titles include "Angel Face", "Honk Tonky", "Il Travestimento", "La Pace Torna A Mimbres", "Il Funerale", "Il Ritorno Di Ringo", and "Lo Scontro".

Carosello/BTF (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – with music that sports vocals both by I Cantori Moderni and Edda Dell'Orso – both of whom are working in prime Mondo Morricone modes! There's a dreamy feel to the best numbers on the set – heard most perfectly in the classic "Guardami Negli Occhi", which has Edda's vocals unfolding like tiny flowers dropping into a river – that magical sound she has, which no other singer can match – and which makes some of these Morricone soundtracks completely essential. All tracks are great, and other titles include "Matto Caldo Soldi Morto Girotondo", "Ninna Nanna Per Adulti", "Una Spiaggia A Mezzogiorno", and "Un Altro Mare". LP, Vinyl record album

Cinevox/BTF (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A slinky 70s soundtrack from maestro Riz Ortolani – but one with a few groovers too – thanks to two vocal tunes sung by European club diva Amanda Lear! Lear's tunes are maybe a bit out of place next to the instrumental moments from Riz – as he's got a nice laidback sort of rhythm, with the slow-stepping vibe that often meant sex on a European soundtrack of this vintage! Keyboards are used more strongly than on earlier Ortolani scores – and titles include "La Fuga", "Ragazza Dal Pigiama", "Un Uomo Nella Strada", "Incontro Sul Battello", and "Il Corpo Di Linda" – and Amanda Lear vocal tracks include "Look At Her Dancing" and "Your Yellow Pyjamas".

A fantastic little record, and one that really lives up to the "elettro" promise in its title – as Giuliani Sorgini uses lots of offbeat electronics, in a mode that's almost a link between the musique concrete experiments of the 60s, and some of the more electronic-based sound library material of the time in which the album was recorded! There's lots of dark moments and strange noises on the record, but Sorgini does a good job of balancing tuneful sections with more abstract passages – in a way that moves beautifully between darkness and light, but with maybe a bit more time in the shadows overall. Titles include "Marker", "Loudspeaker", "Solitudine Venusiana", "Maracas Nell'Atmosfera", "Fabbrica Spaziale", "Dinamica K", and "Malinconia Magnetica". LP, Vinyl record album

A great little album, and one that really lives up to the promise of its title – as most tracks have percussion building up with a rising sense of energy – only to be topped with a nice range of exotic instrumentation too! The approach is a blend of older exotica modes and hip 70s funk – maybe a bit like the Mandingo albums of the period, but not as electronic – as Giuliano Sorgini has a lot of low-end sounds at the bottom next to the percussion, which provide a great platform as lines on flute, piano, and other instruments soar over the top! Titles include "Rapace", "Discontinuo", "The Turf", "Survival", "Monotonia", "Torpedo", "Ze", "Maligno", and "Frettoloso". LP, Vinyl record album

BTF (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really stretching out on the side-long title track "Under Pompelmo", which is a massive jam, but one that never trips out too much to stop being funky – a surprisingly great groove that stays right in the pocket for all of its 16 minutes and 50 seconds! The flipside features shorter tracks, but equally great – all like some lost sound library funk numbers of the period, but served up by a small combo with more focus on guitar and weird production styles – on titles that include "Honda", "When I See You", "Echoes From Canyon", and "To Rebound".
