Basement's GlareFlesh Contagium ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 2020. New Copy ... $19.99
A contemporary horror score, but one that's handled by Basement's Glare with a nice mix of modes – including some darker electronic textures that feel like they're borrowed from the farther reaches of 80s indie soundtracks! Make no mistake, this isn't the easily-done keyboard score that some folks use to replicate 80s modes – and instead, the group have a deeper understanding of sonic possibilities – able to often work in the very low end of the spectrum, creating tension that builds from a bassy bottom and then steps into the light with a bit more keyboards. CD features 24 tracks in all – including "Mutants", "A New Beginning", "Getting Fresh Food", "Kinslayers", "Udolfo Violates Ornella", "Melody Of A Corrupt Love", and "Vera Unchained". CD

Franco BixioEd Ora – Raccomanda L'Anima A Dio (with bonus track) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
A very early soundtrack from Italian great Franco Bixio – done when he was just a lad of 18, before his fame with Vince Tempera – but with a sound that puts the young Franco on equal footing with the best of the spaghetti western generation! The score begins with a groovy vocal tune – "Just A Coward", sung in English by Mary Ushua – then moves into the kind of material that you'd expect from the period – but sometimes inflected with instrumentation that is almost more 60s than western, especially on some of the tracks where electric guitar has a bit more prominence. The CD marks the first time that most of this material is issued commercially – an 19 track set that features two versions of "Just A Coward". CD

Stelvio CiprianiPoliziotto Senza Paura ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
Cool Italian cop soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – easily one of the true masters of the genre! The music is a great mix of mellow moods and funkier moments – spare, piano or keyboard-tinged tunes, which are then offset by more driving numbers that push along with fast guitar, heavy drums, and the general sort of groove you might expect in cop show work of the 70s! Cipriani always does a good job of bringing in some lyrical, more sensitive elements to his music – things that really keep things light, while also creating a rich sense of feeling – quite a bit different than slicker US police work of the period. CD features 22 tracks in all – a nicely groovy mix of styles! CD

Stelvio CiprianiSbirro – La Tua Legge E Lenta La Mia No (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $29.99
There's few folks we love more for a cop/crime soundtrack than the great Stelvio Cipriani – as the 70s Italian maestro always has a way of making things groove, but with these cool sophisticated touches that make his music more distinct than most! This set's clearly got an influence from American crime scores from a few years before, but Stelvio takes things in all these cool directions of his own – which include putting in a nice sense of space on the mellower groovers, shifting up some of the instrumentation from the usual, and also bringing in his great ear for a keyboard part at just the right moment! This issue of the album features three bonus tracks not on any other reissue – and the sound quality is wonderful. LP, Vinyl record album

Pino DonaggioDon Camillo ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1984. Sealed ... $9.99
A remake of the earlier Don Camillo film from the 50s – done here with music that's got an even more sprightly feel! You might know Pino Donaggio from darker, more serious soundtracks – but here, he uses a mix of keyboards and woodwinds to craft lots of groovy tunes that are in the best spirit of the 80s comedic Italian soundtrack modes! Given that Terence Hill was the lead, we can bet that there's a lot of goofy action on screen – set to tunes that include "Ring The Bells", "Verso Pomponesco", "Sfida A Carte", "I'm A Fool", "Don Camillo Parla Con Il Signore", and "Nella Chiesa".

Gianni FerrioUn Dollaro Di Fifa ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
A pretty rollicking little western score from Gianni Ferrio – one that begins with some more familiar modes, then breaks out into a variety of different styles throughout the disc – from fiddle-driven numbers, to piano tunes, harmonica instrumentals, and other varied bits – an assortment of short tracks that makes for a very vivid soundtrack overall! Most of the tunes have slight sort of period instrumentation – less of the electric guitar or other mod elements you might sometimes find in a 60s Italian western – but it's also the case that this entry comes very early in the generation of spaghetti western scores, so that might be part of the reason. 27 tracks in all!

Nico FidencoBlue Jeans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $29.99 36.98
A sexy little soundtrack from Nico Fidenco – penned for this mid 70s film about a teenage prostitute who works under the nickname "Blue Jeans"! The music's got a wonderfully whimsical feel – not as electric or Euro-erotic as you might expect from the cover, and often put together with a lively, leaping sensibility in the rhythms. Instrumentation includes acoustic guitar, flute, and some well-crafted percussion – sometimes played as melodically as the other instruments in the mix – and at times, bits of strings slide in slightly, underscoring a few darker moments in the narrative with Morricone-like tension. The group Cyan performs "A Final Step" – and the LP features 9 other tracks, all titled "Blue Jeans". LP, Vinyl record album

Nico FidencoTranquille Donne Di Campagna ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... $19.99
We can always trust Nico Fidenco to give us a sexy soundtrack – and this time around, he definitely does that, but also adds in a fair bit more too – nicely balancing some of the erotics of the film with some of the darker passages in the story! If you only know Fidenco from sexploitation scores, you'll find some surprises here – including lots of nice violin solos that give the music ties to more sensitive scoring, including some of the 70s French work of composers like Georges Delerue or Philippe Sarde! There's a bit of electric instrumentation on the set, but most of the moments are acoustic – a nice surprise for a 1980 vintage soundtrack from Italy – and the set features 25 titles in all. CD

Giovanni FuscoI Cosacchi ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... $19.99
An early score from Giovani Fusco – done for a late 50s film about Russian Cossacks, and scored with some of the same mix of modes you'd find in some of the blood and sandals epics from the time! By that, we mean that the score has a blend of familiar postwar orchestrations with more exotic phrasing from time to time – often in moments that give way to some of the greater drama of the action scene – as of the unusual phrasing and woodwind elements are hinting at the evil Cossacks right around the corner! There's a few more dramatic dynamic passages that hint at heroic action against the invaders – and the CD features 23 tracks in all, all directed by Carlo Savina. CD

Franco MicalizziDa Corleone A Brooklyn ... CD
Beat/Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
A Corleone in Brooklyn – what could be better? Yet this Brooklyn is a 70s one, and gets scored by Franco Micalizzi in a really great way – funky at times, with other cool Italian scoring elements at others – all given a slight late 70s twist in the instrumentation and production, but in ways that still avoid some of the disco cliches of other soundtracks of the period. The whole thing is still nicely overflowing in the best cop/crime modes that we love from Italian 70s work – the sorts of grooves that make that nation's funky soundtracks an equal match for Shaft or Superfly! 17 tracks in all – and very funky.

Franco MicalizziGenova A Mano Armata ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
Classic cop soundtrack work from the Italian scene of the 70s – a funky nugget that rivals our own American police scores of the time, but one that also has some darker elements too! The upbeat tunes here often feature lots of keyboards, funky bass, and guitar – quick-tempo grooves that move with lots of fast action – offset by some mellower numbers that mix in spookier strings and some creepier orchestrations, of the sort you might hear in an Ennio Morricone soundtrack. Micalizzi's always been one of the best Italian composers for crime/cop work like this – and the score is right up there with his best work – beautifully presented in this package that features 17 cuts from the film!

Franco MicalizziLa Banda Del Gobbo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... $34.99 58.98
Funky 70s crime cinema sounds from Italy – done for giallo, police thriller and gore maestro Umberto Lenzi's La Banda Del Gobbo, by Franco Micalizzi – a frenetic, funky and action packed score that hardly lets up for a moment! We knew we were in for a treat from the second we put it on – with the crisp bass line, the chicken scratch guitar, and the spacey keys the floated in right at the start – and that's before the drums and horns even kicked in! Totally great stuff – reminiscent of sound library funk, full on 70s crime score grooviness, and proggy keys as an added bonus – a near perfect later 70s exploitation soundtrack! Includes 18 tracks in all LP, Vinyl record album

Luciani MicheliniLa Polizia Accusa – Il Sevizio Segreto Uccide ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A tremendous little police soundtrack from 70s Italy – one with plenty of Morricone-like touches, but that's A-OK with us! Luciano Michelini does a great job here of juxtaposing stark sounds with sweeter ones – particularly some great piano that's isolated nicely above the orchestrations, and played in flat, off-kilter tones – as well as some eerie flute that drifts through slowly sometimes, more quickly at others – all with a good sense of variety and dramatic energy. The strings are sometimes stepping, almost with a slight undercurrent of funk – but are slower and more offbeat at other times – creating a great sense of tension in the music. CD features a whopping 25 tracks, remastered from the original tapes! CD

Berto Pisano/Franco PisanoLa Svergognata/Anima Mia ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
A sweetly sexy soundtrack from the great Berto Pisano – one that really lives up to its image on the cover! There's a gently grooving feel to the music that's right up there with the best erotica work from Morricone – handled by Pisano with light strings, keyboards, bits of flute, and some especially nice vocals from Edda Dell'Orso, who's definitely on the warmer side of her talents with a record like this! The tunes glide along nicely, and are supported with some great artwork from the film – and titles include "Orchestra For Edda", "Piano Dreams", "Free Hammond", "Sound For A Child", and "Voice In The Night". Anima Mia is a really wonderful score from Franco Pisano – nicely sexy, with some sweet 70s touches – but a deeper style than just the usual sexploitation film! Edda Dell'Orso sings a bit, and well-crafted strings are balanced with the keyboards – painting a lovely, and very groovy picture in music – over the course of the album's 11 tracks! CD

Carlo RustichelliL'Armata Brancaleone ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. Sealed Gatefold ... $6.99
A dramatic soundtrack for L'Armata Bracaleone – a mid 60s Italian fantasy action film that starred Vittorio Gassman in a strange setting that was sort of a twisted version of the Middle Ages! The tunes on the set are often orchestral and mood-setting – but a few of the more standout numbers have a driving, chanting approach – to suit the more action-based scenes of the film. There's clearly a comedic current to the movie at times, but this doesn't always come through in the music, which is maybe at its best when most dramatic! Titles include "Marcia Di Brancaleone", "Combattimento", "La Citta Appestata E Cuccuruccu", "Tema D'Amore E Brancaleone Prigoniero", and "Brancalene Incontra Teodora". LP, Vinyl record album

Ivan Vandor/Stelvio CiprianiBersaglio Mobile ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
Very groovy work from Ivan Vandor – one of the lesser-known artists of the Italian soundtrack scene, but getting some help here from 70s giant Stelvio Cipriani – who handles the orchestrations! The music is very striking and groovy – a late 60s update of earlier crime jazz modes, but without the funk to come in the 70s – which means that some of the boldest, most compelling sounds come from acoustic instrumentation used in very powerful ways – sometimes spare and subtle, but often with a tenor sax or some other instrument blaring out in the lead! The music is similar to some of Lalo Schifrin's work of the time – and the CD features 28 titles in all, penned by Vandor, and conducted by Cipriani. CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliLe Dolci Signore ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little soundtrack from Armando Trovajoli – the best sort that he did in the 60s, at a time when he and a few other Italian soundtrack artists were helping push things forward from straighter jazz into the sorts of groovy modes that would make their scene stand out from the rest! The tunes are often spare and slinky, with a good amount of space between the notes – but in a way that's different than Morricone, maybe warmer and sweeter, with a great approach that lets you focus on a tinkling piano part, an unusual bassline, an organ riff, or all the other great elements that go into the tunes! The set begins with the swinging "Anyone Can Play" – a nice little vocal number – then runs into a whole host of great instrumentals. CD

That kid on the cover isn't as cute as ET – but he's also an extraterrestrial in a film from the same period – teaming up here with Italian comedic great Bud Spencer, amidst a lively little soundtrack from the duo of Guido and Maurizio DeAngelis! The style here is a bit like some of the brothers' other comedies of the period – whimsical, with occasional disco-generation elements – but given that Bud plays a rural sherriff, there's also some moments that try to evoke country music – but in this weirdly-refracted style that lets you know you're still very much in the hands of the Italian maestros! Crystal Bird turn in the rock ballad "Tonight Tonight" – and other tracks include "Big Star", "Whistle & Bells", "Dreaming Woman", "Atlanta", "L'Ultimo Valser", and "Mundialito".

Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic early soundtrack from maestro Piero Piccioni – very jazzy overall, in a style that merges postwar Rome with some of the groovier touches to come on the Italian scene! The tracks are mostly around the two minute mark, and work as these great jazz instrumentals on their own – with bits of guitar, tenor, and piano – amidst really well-crafted basslines that bring a nice moody quality to the whole thing – very much in the best style of the French new wave jazz soundtracks, but with some nice Roman touches too. The whole thing's a great illustration of how important jazz was to unlocking the next generation of Italian soundtracks in the 60s – and the CD features 30 tracks in all – a superb presentation of the material!

That's Goldsnake, not Goldfinger – but the soundtrack here from Carlo Savina is very much inspired by the James Bond music of the 60s – and served up in a great range of spy, mod, and crime jazz styles! The main theme gets a vocal reading at the start, but is transformed into other groovy instrumentals throughout – and balanced with some more mod jerk and shake-styled instrumentals that are heavier on electric bass and guitar, with overall results that may well be groovier than the best work that John Barry did for 007! CD features 17 tracks in all – and is an overlooked gem from the 60s spy spoof years. CD

A trio of historically-themed soundtracks from the pre-kitsch years of Italian cinema – all of them delivered with a good deal of tension and drama! Roberto Nicolosi composed all three scores – one in collaboration with Angelo Lavagnino – and the work is a mixture of full strings and isolated instrumentation, with occasional exotic or more unusual flourishes! Despite the traditional style of scoring, though, the music's never too sleepy – and really maintains a sense of power through Nicolosi's ability to shift mood and moment quickly, often within a single track. 2CD set features a whopping 51 titles in all – pulled from the films Agi Murad Il Diavolo Biano, Ester E Il Re, and Gli Invasori – all with notes in English and Italian!

Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A catchy little soundtrack for this late 70s Italian sex spoof – a film in which the lead character's wife discovers his philandering, then decides to pimp him out to the neighbors! The score begins with a jaunty vocal tune – "Nun Me Scuccia" – which is then echoed in a few other tracks, and mixed with the kind of lighter, playful melodies that were more common in Italian comedies during the period – still mostly with acoustic instrumentation, but also touched with occasional keyboard or guitar lines. The vocal track starts and ends the score – and the set features ten more instrumental numbers in between! CD
