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 CiprianiMetti Lo Diavolo Tuo Ne Lo Mio Inferno/Leva Lo Diavolo Tuo Dal Convento/Racconti Proibiti Di Niente Vestiti ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 36.98
A trio of very unusual soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – all done for a cycle of films that are billed in the notes as "costume erotic comedies"! The "costume" refers to the fact that the stories are all set in the imagined past – where the erotic styles that Cipriani brings to his usual 70s work take on some slightly different flavors – often augmented more by woodwinds than his electric keys, although there also seems to be a fair bit of cool harpsichord lines as well – a nice change from the usual for Stelvio! The moods shift nicely between the three different films – and although the tracks are short, they work together to serve up this very rich pastiche of the mighty talents of Cipriani – heard here in a double-length package that really opens up a lost side of his work. The 2CD set features a whopping 56 tracks in all! CD

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

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

Ennio MorriconeIl Prigioniero (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $34.99
One of the more contemplative 70s soundtracks from Ennio Morricone – almost a step towards the direction he'd take with some of his big international hits of the 80s! The music is often pensive – with some beautiful spare woodwind moments amidst light larger orchestrations – never too lush, and always handled with that spacious quality that makes the maestro so different from so many other composers of his time. The music is for an obscure TV project, far less well-known than some of his others – and the set features the lovely vocal tune "Dove Sei Amore", plus "L'Estate E'Finita", "Si L'Ammuri", and "I Due Prigionieri" – in different variations.

Ennio MorriconeNoi Lazzaroni (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CAM/Digitmovies (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... $34.99
Rare soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone, recorded for an Italian TV series that didn't get any play on this side of the Atlantic! The music has a surprisingly haunting quality, especially for television – almost the darker side of Morricone that you'd hear in the earlier part of the 70s, and less like some of his warmer scores of the time when this one was recorded. Edda Dell'Orso sings quite darkly on a few tracks – really bringing an edge to the music – and there's also a mix of atonal strings and lighter, lilting moments – of the sort we're much more likely to hear in some of Morricone's best cinematic endeavors. Titles include "Tema Borghese", "Tema Popolaresco", "Passione E Misticismo", "Musica Di Strada No 1", "Solo Violini", and "Notturno Senza Lunda". LP, Vinyl record album

Berto PisanoLa Svergognata (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... $29.99 39.98
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".

Carlo SavinaGoldsnake Anonima Killers ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $18.99
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

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

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLa Notte Brava ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... Temporarily 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!

✨✧ Piero PiccioniLe Streghe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Music for a film about witches – but handled here with sounds that are a lot more dreamy than they are spooky – thanks to the fantastic 60s talents of maestro Piero Piccioni! There's lots of elements here that are kind of an extrapolation of bossa nova styles – both in terms of the melody and rhythms – but the instrumentation and production are Italian cinema at its best – with loads of compressed passages, floating isolated elements, and plenty of those other-worldly touches that can make the best Italian scores of the time sound way more than just the sum of their parts! The main melody is wonderful, and there's plenty of other great moments and groovers too – all packaged into a 32 track collection with really wonderful sound. CD

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiPoliziotto Senza Paura ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Luciani MicheliniLa Polizia Accusa – Il Sevizio Segreto Uccide ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
