Luis Bacalov & Ennio MorriconePitturamusica ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $40.99
An album with a very basic cover, but one that's got a very deep dimension in sound – thanks to some very groundbreaking work from Italian sound library giants Ennio Morricone and Luis Bacalov! The music is maybe mostly in the territory of Morricone's experimental work – especially his contributions to the legendary Il Gruppo – and the style is very different than we're used to hearing from Bacalov, who we know best for sweeter themes and action-drenched soundtrack work! Instead, the music here comes from a variety of familiar instruments – piano, violin, cello, trombone, and voice – but all used in really unusual ways, with properties that go far beyond their usual sonic expectations – at a level that's really striking throughout! The vocal numbers almost recall some of the dadaist experiments of earlier in the century, and the piano and string passages would be right at home next to work by Luigi Nono or Gyorgi Ligeti. The work was created for an exhibition of paintings by the painter Masci – and titles include "Corpopaesaggio 2", "Mela", "La Gioconda", "SB", "Conchiglia", and "Venere D'Urbino".

Angelo Lavagnino/Ennio MorriconeAgente 077 Missione Bloody Mary ... CD
GDM/Saimel (Spain), 1965. Used ... $19.99
A great Italian spy soundtrack – and one with a cool English-language theme from Ennio Morricone! Morricone's "Bloody Mary" leads off the score – a driving groovy number with rattling drums, spy sounds, and great lyrics sung by Maurizio Graf. Other titles on the soundtrack are quite different, but equally great – penned by Angelo Lavagino with a mix of different spy modes – sometimes upbeat and jazzy, at other times nicely subdued and mellow – almost with "watery" sort of tones on piano and vibes! The core instrumental theme is offered up in a number of great variations, and interspersed with other moody music – and the "Bloody Mary" tune is also repeated twice in instrumental versions. CD

Ennio MorriconeCitta Violenta ... LP
GDM/Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... About September 16, 2020 (delayed)
A lost treasure from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a soundtrack written for a crime film starring Charles Bronson & Telly Savalas, and handled with all the spare subtlety of his best work! Bruno Nicolai's directing the orchestra on this one – and isolated instruments include electric harpsichord and woodwinds that drift along nicely in the tunes – mixed with some harder arrangements on a few of the album's more driving cuts. Morricone strikes a great balance here – occasionally hitting sweet notes, but then often falling into these dark depths that perfectly fit the bleak world of the film. Tracks include the lovely slow groover "Riassunto", plus the tracks "Rito Finale", "Svolta Definitiva", "Dolcemente Acre", "Norme Con Ironie", "Citta Violenta", and "Mille Volte Un Grido".

Ennio MorriconeEnnio Morricone De Sergio Leone A Quentin Tarantino (4CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 4CD ... $24.99
A key look at two different slices in the mighty soundtrack career of Ennio Morricone – his legendary work for Italian director Sergio Leone, and his later re-use by Quentin Tarantino – the American director who was strongly influenced by Leone's work in the 60s! If you've never heard Morricone's music for the films of Leone, it's amazing – sounds that completely transform the work on screen, and which also helped push the genre of western forward a few notches too – a sonic landscape that's completely different from American western soundtracks, and filled with amazing sounds, unusual musical flourishes, and a level of scoring that's still light years ahead of its time! It's that quality that made the music so influential for Tarantino – who first re-used some of his favorite Morricone moments from the past, then had the maestro score some new music for films as well. That amazing link is presented strongly here – in a package that features 3 CDs of work for Leone – extensive material from the scores to For A Fistful Of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Good The Bad & The Ugly, and Once Upon A Time In The West – plus a fourth CD that features Morricone music used in the Tarantino films Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, and Hateful Eight – with bonus material too!

Ennio MorriconeFistful Of Dollars ... CD
BMG/Razor & Tie, 1964. Used ... $11.99
A landmark record – not only in the history of the western, but in that of Ennio Morricone! The soundtrack, written for this hit Clint Eastwood spaghetti western, is everything you'd want in a 60s western – driving orchestral passages, twanging guitar parts, and spooky little bits that isolate the mood of a scene nicely. The work's an instant classic, and is still one of Morricone's strongest western soundtracks – even if it is one of the most familiar. 8 tracks in all – titles include "Almost Dead", "The Chase", "Without Pity", "The Result", "A Fistful Of Dollars", "Square Dance", and "A Fistful Of Dollars Suite".

Ennio MorriconeForza G (G-Force) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. Used ... $19.99
A fantastic album from Italian soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – done for a film titled G-Force, and which deals with jet pilots – but one that moves at a much slinkier pace overall! The tunes here bubble and brew in that early 70s Morricone warmth that we love so much – not the tension of his horror soundtracks, but instead the spacious sounds that he opened on some of his more majestic mondo scores of the time – delivered here with very light strings, floating woodwinds, isolated instrumentation, and slow-stepping piano lines that are really beautiful! The complete charm here is the way in which Morricone can make the music still sound so striking – very different than more common sleepy or romantic modes that are usually at this pace – and instead completely rapturous throughout. There's lots of warm and subtle passages on the album – gently swelling as the tracks move on, occasionally giving way to jazzier numbers, but always retaining the charm of mellow Morricone. Titles include a number of tunes called "Forza G" and "Sospesi Fra Le Nuvole" – with a total of 15 tracks in all! CD

Ennio MorriconeI Ladri Della Notte (Les Voleurs De La Nuit) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1984. New Copy ... $19.99
An overlooked 80s score from Ennio Morricone – not done for an Italian or American film, but for one of Sam Fuller's later directorial efforts in France! The music is fantastic – very much in the best spirit of some of Morricone's genius from the start of the 70s – almost echoing some of those classics at times, in the way that a solo woodwind might snake out, or some bracing string lines might pulse to create tension – all with this slow-building sense of wonder and majesty that reminds yet again why Morricone at his best is so blindingly brilliant! Titles include "A Fake", "Counterpoints", "Unconscious Happiness", "Thieves After Dark", "Lancinant For Two", and "Expressive Suspense". CD features 9 more bonus tracks too! CD

Ennio MorriconeIl Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1966. Used ... $16.99
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "Insequimento", "Il Deserto", "Il Bandito Monco", "Fine Di Una Spia", "Marcetta", "Padre Ramirez", and "La Carrozza Dei Fantasmi". CD

Ennio MorriconeIl Grande Silenzio/Un Bellissimo Novembre ... CD
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Beautiful work from Ennio Morricone – 2 soundtracks from different genres of film, but both linked together nicely through their styles! Il Grande Silenzio is a spaghetti western, but Morricone's music for the film is remarkably sweet – done in that blend of light melody, isolated instrumentation, and slight electric touches that show up on some of his best work of the Mondo Morricone era. A few tracks are more dramatic or moody, but there's a great feel overall – set up by the theme "Il Grande Silenzio", and followed up by tunes that include "Viaggio", "Voci Nel Deserto", "E L'Amore Verra", and "Invito All'Amore". Un Bellissimo Novembre is a completely different style of film – one that deals with the flowering of young love – but it's also got some sweet Morricone themes that sparkle nicely, done with lusher string orchestrations, but also some key touches that include whistling and a bit of that trademark Morricone "boing"! Includes vocal and instrumental versions of the tune "Nuddu" – plus "Sensi", "Buio Mattino", and "Ancora Piu Dolcemente". CD

Ennio MorriconeIl Pentito (180 gram silver & black vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A later score from Ennio Morricone – but an incredibly beautiful one too – penned for a mid 80s mafia film set in Sicily, but featuring some of his sweetest, most sensitive work of the time! There's a very bittersweet feel to most of the music here – a quality that's almost romantic at times, but touched with really blue notes too – as the tunes spin out in slow, thoughtful progressions that echo the darker choices and themes of the film. There's a few more upbeat tracks, and a few darker, atonal numbers – but overall most of the score is steeped in melancholy – with gentle strings and woodwinds that have plenty of trademark Morricone touches! Titles include "Il Pentito", "Messaggio", "Retata", "Momento Decisivo", "Sicilia", "Durante L'Omelia", "Confusi Ricordi", "Sicilia Dei Ricordi Lontani", and "Evento Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeL'Agnese Va A Morire ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the more obscure 70s cinematic efforts handled by maestro Ennio Morricone – but a set of tracks that really show the composer at the top of his game! There's a nice undercurrent of melancholy in the music – hard not to do for a film set during the Nazi regime – and Morricone makes great use of some isolated elements in the music, including the harmonica of Franco De Gemini and flugelhorn of Italian jazz great Oscar Valdambrini – both soloists whose work is a nice match for those incredible Ennio orchestrations, handled in ways that are still as breathtaking today as they were back in the 70s! Titles include "Disperazione Dentro", "L'Agnese Va A Morire", "Alla Stazione", "Repressione", "Ricordo Dei Compagni", and "Canzone Della Nostalgia". CD

The soundtrack was written for an obscure 1968 thriller starring Vittorio Gassman – and the overall approach has some wonderfully imaginative orchestrations – dark at times, but lightly floating with some really catchy tunes at others! Includes a male vocal version of "Canzone Della Liberta", the classic "Belinda May", and other tracks that include "Pennellate", "Una Fotografia", "Recitazione Corale", "Lo Libero", "Sognando", and "Immagini Del Tempo". This expanded CD features a whopping 27 tracks in all – including some great alternate takes and other unusual versions! CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeLa Classe Operaia Va In Paradiso ... LP
RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
One of the most striking Morricone soundtracks we've heard from the early 70s – a really dark little score that's filled with harsh tones and cool electronic effects! The film itself deals with the hardship of life in an Italian factory – and Morricone's music is filled with machine-like moments – stark, stiff rhythms that stamp out in repetition – cold electronic sounds that are without any soul – and a few softer, gentler moments that offer just a bit of relief – then quickly bring you back to the realm of the industrial! The soundtrack is proof that the maestro was always working at the height of his creative powers – setting his music apart from the rest of his contemporaries. Bruno Nicolai gets a nod too – as he directed the orchestra – and titles include "Il Sogno", "Metamorfosi", "La Classe Operaia Va In Paradiso", "Alienazione", "Inventario", and "Sinfonia Dell'Ottimista".

Ennio MorriconeLa Cugina (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About September 5, 2020 (delayed)
A fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – one of those extra-special soundtracks of his that really seem to elevate from the rest – with a sublime blend of elements that's completely unique! The sound here is in the best Mondo Morricone mode – often slowly stepping, kind of a loungey approach to funk – with isolated strings, moody instrumentation, and some great highlights that include work by Oscar Valdambrini on flugelhorn, Edda Dell'Orso on voice, and I Cantori Moderni on wordless vocals! The sound is beautiful and spooky at the same time – post-bossa, with that more sophisticated sound that Morricone built up as the 70s moved in. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "La Cugina", "La Sera La Nott, Il Giorgno", and "De Copalamo". LP, Vinyl record album

Music On Vinyl (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... About November 20, 2020
One of Ennio Morricone's first groundbreaking scores for the western – a brilliant batch of tunes composed for The Big Gundown, handled in a way that mixed the typical western guitar-based themes with some of the maestro's other compulsions – like wordless vocals and isolated instrumentation amidst lush orchestral backdrops! There's barely any "spaghetti" on the plate of this one – as the sound is often quite lean and very clean – a real change from some of the more dramatic, romantic styles that were being used in American westerns. Titles include "La Corrida", "La Vedova", "La Resa Dei Conti", "Dopo La Condanna", "Rune Man Run", "Primo Deserta", and "Corri Uomo Corri". LP, Vinyl record album

A lost Morricone gem – originally written for Italian television in the 70s, but with a sublime quality that's right up there with the best of the maestro's film work from the same decade! The main theme has this beautiful feel – slowly vamping strings with a nice gentle groove, punctuated by a cool whistle that's very much in classic Morricone spirit. Other tracks continue in this lightly playful style – often using woodwinds, or a specific woodwind instrument, to create a gently percussive mood. Titles include variations on the theme, in versions titled "Dolce Mistero", "Burlesco", "Titoli", "Saltarello Della Rana", "Tema D'Amore Ripresa", and "Indagine Su Un Navigatore".

CAM/Universal (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Bruno Nicolai conducted this score by Morricone for the film The Sicilian Clan – a bit of a hit back in 1969, and a dark little gangster film! The soundtrack's got a number of different classic Morricone approaches – it starts with a power "boing" on the track's grooving opener, has some darker orchestral passages that glide along nicely, and mixes slow-grooving organ with a bit of whistling and more boings on other numbers! You'll love that boing – which really sets the whole thing off in a crazy mood – and you'll understand why Morricone's range of expression on the soundtrack makes it one of his biggest hits from the time! Titles include "Tema Per Le Goff", "Jeanne E La Spiaggia", "Il Clan Dei Siciliani", "Tema Italiano No 2", and "Francobolli". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing collection of music from one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time – presented in a hefty book-styled package, and done with a very unique presentation of his work! The package is huge – a hardcover volume with 18 CDs and a 48 page book, all presenting a total of 400 tracks that really span the scope of the music of Ennio Morricone over the decade – presented on CDs that each have a different theme, to showcase a different side of the maestro's many creations! The first five CDs focus on Morricone's music for director Sergio Leone, and other CDs present work for directors Henri Verneuil, Roland Joffe, Quentin Tarantino, and Giuseppe Tornatore – plus a full set of music used in films that starred Jean-Paul Belmondo. There's also thematic CDs, too – "Genre Cinema", "Committed Cinema", "Mafia Thrillers", "History Of Italy", and "Faces Of Italian Cinema" – and the final CD features songs penned by Morricone, interpreted by a host of others – including Charles Aznavour, Chico Buarque, Traffic Quintet, Gerard Depardieu, Sting, and many more.

Side 1 features short tracks like "They're Alive", "Do Dreams Go On", "Death At The Pole", and "Message From Rome" – and side 2 contains the extended "Others Who Will Follow Us" suite, which is even better than side one, and has a bit more of the stuff you buy Morricone albums for!

Kapp, 1970. Sealed ... $39.99
A really fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – maybe better this time around than the images on the screen for some of his other westerns of the period – more proof that the maestro was always willing to rise above, and give his best no matter what the setting! The music begins with some already-fantastic elements – mule-like noises that mark the theme and title of the film – carried out with that fantastic sense of western flourish that Morricone could do so well – a use of space in the music that evokes the landscape, even without images to view – as subtle orchestrations mix with occasional guitar, and a fair bit of the sorts of unfamiliar sounds that the maestro was always able to create!

A gem of a record from maestro Morricone – even if it wasn't one of his most famous sets at the time – a soundtrack that really brings together that effortless balance of darkness and light that makes some of the best recordings by Ennio Morricone so wonderful! The set's got a few numbers with beautifully pronounced rhythms – not entirely groovers, but kind of these chunks of sound that work together to move things nicely – balanced by more mellow, spacious tunes that make tremendous use of a spare flute line, or tinkling piano! Edda Dell'Orso provides just a bit of wordless vocals – and titles include "Lungo La Stradina", "Al Confini Della Follia", "Uccidete Il Vitello Grasso", "La Fredda Lama Del Coltello", and "Scivolando Nel Buio".

There's some keyboards and riffing guitar in the mix, of a variety that might be more at home in the hands of Stelvio Cipriani – but the maestro keeps things nicely focused, and also uses some larger orchestrations too – all with that moody, open style that we love so much – kind of an updating of his late 60s love themes, really coming across beautifully with different solo instruments on many tracks. Titles include "Move", "Ricordo Del Padre", "Sull'Amaca", "Tre Anni FA Una Sera", "Presentimento Primo", "Good News", and "La Ragazza Del Padre". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight ... CD
Decca, 2015. New Copy ... $5.99 15.99
Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too! So it's only fitting that this time around, the pair are finally brought together fully – as Morricone turns out one of his best soundtracks in years for Tarantino's Hateful Eight – a brooding, suspenseful tale that owes plenty to the western generation that first sprung Morricone to global fame! Yet as with most of Ennio's best work, the style here is something that goes far beyond expectation – orchestrations that take on a style completely their own – with instrumental elements that have stronger focus amidst the larger charts, and a sense of mood and color here that's completely sublime. The record is mostly music from Morricone – written for the film – and features a few passages of dialogue from the movie, plus just a few additional tracks by The White Stripes, Roy Orbison, and David Hess. Yet it's more than fair to think of this as a complete score by Morricone – very different than the usual compilation-style soundtracks we've had before from Tarantino. CD

Titles include "The Sundown", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "Marcia", "The Desert", "The Strong", and "The Trio". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeUna Lucertola Con La Pella Di Donna (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Morricone fans – this one's got it all! The music is completely wonderful throughout, and a great mix of everything that makes Ennio Morricone so tremendous – a bit of bossa here, some funky bits there, and even some spookier slow passages with a nice atonal feel! The main theme of the record is more than enough to get us going – a wonderful tune with wordless female vocals in the best Mondo Morricone mode – but other instrumental tracks follow with some very cool, slow moments – including some great love themes which then lead to some beefier, bouncier numbers that are really great too. This limited 2CD version is great – with a total of 24 tracks that include "La Lucertola", "Magia Nera", "Giorno Di Notte", "Spiriti", "Ancora Ad Est", "Sfinge", "Spostato Ad Est", and "A Lucio Fulci".

Beat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little collection that brings together one of the best collaborative teams in the Italian soundtrack world of the 60s and 70s – composer Ennio Morricone, and harmonica player Franco De Gemini – whose spare, moody sound was such a key part of some of the best spaghetti western soundtracks, and also some of maestro Morricone's other music as well! The package pulls together key tracks from film scores composed by Morricone – with a focus on selections that have Franco as the soloist, with a really large role on the track – in a great range of 25 titles from films that include Una Vita Venduta, Sette Donne Per I MacGregor, Faccia A Faccia, Navajo Joe, Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo, Vamos A Matar Companeros, La Banda J&S, Peur Sur La Ville, L'Agnese Via A Morire, and Le Ruffian.

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeAmanti D'Oltretomba (aka Nightmare Castle) (180 gram blood red marble vinyl ) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very weird little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – earlier than most of his classics, and done in a style that's much more conventionally horror-based! The film may be known to American viewers as Nightmare Castle, and it boasts a score that's heavy on the pipe organ – stretched out here in very extended tracks that go far longer than the original album – in a way that really lets the organ ring out with plenty of eerie touches! A few passages are sparer and more traditionally Morricone-esque – and feature some equally creepy wordless vocals! Titles include "Dall'Oltretomba", "Amanti D'Oltretomba", "Spettri", "Per Organo E Ottoni", and "Contrappunto Tragico". LP, Vinyl record album

Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked Ennio Morricone score from the late 70s – one done for a b-grade erotic film, but which features the maestro working at the height of his powers! The instrumentation is maybe a bit more keyboard-oriented than a few years before – but handled in a way that really underscores the erotic, ala Stelvio Cipriani – mixed with sweet touches that include the occasional sax solo, vocals from Edda Dell'Orso, and a bit of violin from Yoko Sato – all handled in a way that's a lot more tasteful and compelling than some other work of this nature from the time! Titles include "Dedicato Al Mare Egeo", "Lisa E Nikos", "E Fuggi Via", "Vedere E Non Saper", Tre Per Tre", and "La Donna Della Finestra Di Fronte". This limited edition on Quartet includes 11 bonus tracks – "Cavallina A Cavallo", "Un Grido", "Tre Per Tre", "Vedere E Non Sapere" and more. CD

If you know Morricone, you'll know that he always brings something special to the table – which makes this music way different than more conventional American action film work of the time – and has this great balance between darkness and light, sweetness and sting! Some cuts are funky, others dreamy – and the set features vocals from both Edda Dell'Orso and I Cantori Moderni – and features work from the films Citta Violenta, Maddalena, Veruscha, L'Emarginato, Svegliati E Uccidi, La Corta Notte, Il Gatto A Nove Code, Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura, and "Dimenticare Palermo.

FGL (France), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful look at an under-documented side of Ennio Morricone's career – soundtrack work done for French films of the 70s, some of which aren't nearly as well-known as his Italian classics at the time! Morricone's genius really comes through in this selection of tunes – not just his skills at setting up the charts for an orchestra, but his way of putting together a short piece of music – his amazing ear for sound and space and the way things can fall together with the simplest of elements in the mix. The collection features music from a wide variety of genres – making it one of the most diverse Morricone compilations we've ever stocked – but it's also got a nice sense of pacing and timing too, so that things are never too schizophrenic or off the map! CD features 22 tracks in all – and includes music from the films Sans Mobile Apparent, Peur Sur La Ville, Le Professionnel, Le Ruffian, La Banquiere, Le Trio Infernal, Le Secret, Le Clan Des Siciliens, I Comme Icare, Le Serpent, Le Marginal, and Espion Leve-Toi.

Kapp/La La Land, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A really fantastic score from Ennio Morricone – maybe better this time around than the images on the screen for some of his other westerns of the period – more proof that the maestro was always willing to rise above, and give his best no matter what the setting! The music begins with some already-fantastic elements – mule-like noises that mark the theme and title of the film – carried out with that fantastic sense of western flourish that Morricone could do so well – a use of space in the music that evokes the landscape, even without images to view – as subtle orchestrations mix with occasional guitar, and a fair bit of the sorts of unfamiliar sounds that the maestro was always able to create! Titles include "The Braying Mule", "The Battle", "The Cool Mule", "La Cueva", "Night On The Desert", and "Time For Miracles". This massive 2CD edition features the original 11 track album from 1970 – plus a full bonus CD of songs from the film score, most of which appear here for the first time ever – 21 more tracks, and a bonus hour's worth of music!

Compost (Germany), 2003. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A second volume of reworkings of vintage Morricone – this time with an even more profound club bounce than the first! The unofficial theme of the set can pretty much be found in the phrase "Cinematic For The People!" – and that mantra hits home with mixes by a wide, wide variety of producers, DJs, programmers and innovators from Hird, to Eddy & Dus, to Domu, Doctor Rockit, Moonstar and many others – who all take a spin on tracks from The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, My Name Is Nobody, Once Upon A Time In The West and beyond! The tight electro beats and pulsing synth and keys add a sinister uptempo groove on the best cuts, but they still keep Morricone's epic mood swings well in place! It's a delicate balance, keeping Morricone's cinematic, swirling and soaring groove in check with late model club grooves – leave it to the great minds at Compost Records to pull it off! 27 tracks on two CDs: "Mucchio Selvaggio" by 2Raumwohnung, "L'Estasi Dell-Oro" by Bandini, "A Lidia" by Swell Session, "Tema di Mose" by Crazy Baldheads, "Nadine"(dub mix) by Yen Sung, "Alla Serenita" (Lazer Sight mix)" by Domu, "Sotto Controllo" by Ayro, "Ritratto d'Autore" by Moonstarr, "La Cugina" by Yukihiro Fukutomi and lots more!

An epic tale of deceit and power in the Sicilian town of Corleone – scored beautifully here by Ennio Morricone, at a level that prefaces some of the more sophisticated turns his music would take in years to come! There's a depth here that reminds us a lot of Morricone's great soundtrack for Once Upon A Time In America – a way of conveying history, family, and change with strong musical themes – often intertwining a few repeated melodies in different ways, evoking the progressions in the narrative. LP features 22 tracks from the film – and titles include "Addio A Palermo", "Corleone", "Addio Al Figlio", "Alla Donna", "Cassandra", "Cospirazione", "Una Voce Dal Carcere", "In Tribunale", and "Corleone (jazz source music)".

Some tunes echo the sweeter side of Morricone, while others are a bit more brooding – and instrumentation includes some of the same offbeat piano you'd hear in The Burglars, plus light guitar, weird-tuned horns, and other nice bits that are sometimes abstracted beyond recognition! Titles include "Consideration Sur Un Homicide", "Paris Secret", "Defense De Stationner" and "Mannequins". 2LP set features a number of tracks that appear here on vinyl for the first time – and one previously-unissued track – a total of 30 titles in all!

MCA/Quartet (Spain), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual American soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – unusual in that he wasn't always doing that much horror work in the US at the time, and also in that the overall style is maybe a bit like some of his Hollywood contemporaries! That's not to say that the music is commercial or clunky at all – but just that Morricone seems to revel in the kind of darker orchestrations that you might find, say, in the music of Jerry Goldsmith – especially in key passages that have a way of rumbling off in the distance, almost behind the point of hearing! There's a few other passages that make strong use of sparer cello lines, but again in a way that's different than the spacious repetitive Morricone soundtrack style of the 70s – maybe almost more with ties to his experimental work of the late 60s. Titles include "Humanity", "Wait", "Eternity", "Solitude", "Shape", "Contamination", and "Despair". CD

Cinedelic/Record Kicks (Italy), 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99
A contemporary combo, but one who really get the sound of older soundtracks right – particularly the late 60s/early 70s Italian generation that's inspired the name and artwork of this set! Instrumentation is nice and lean – keyboards, guitar, bass, and percussion – used more in the tight ways of a mod funk combo, but with strong soundtrack leanings in the tunes – no surprise, as the songs here are all pulled from vintage scores by Ennio Morricone, Luiz Bacalov, Armando Trovajoli, and others of the golden age of Italian soundtracks! And if you're suspicious about the sound, don't be – because these guys are totally great – no fake-retro moments, or overly programmed rhythms – just live instrumentation handled beautifully, in ways that bring something new to the tunes, but remain very faithful to their original inspiration. Titles include "Preludio", "Italia Amano Armata", "Titoli", "Notte In Bovisa", "Summertime Killer", "La Polizia S'Incazza", "Shake Balera", "Spiralys", and "Gangster Story". LP, Vinyl record album

Edda sings in that wordless breezy style she brought to some of her best Ennio Morricone soundtracks – and I Cantori Modern often scat along in a cool harmony-drenched style that's pretty wonderful too – and instrumentation includes a bit of light flute, sweet Hammond, and fuzzy guitar – in a very nice blend that only gets stronger on the mostly instrumental tracks that dominate the second half of the record!

One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some surprisingly funky rhythms at times – at a level that's even more compelling than some of the group's other projects – especially given that the album's three tracks are all quite long, with lots of room for instrumental experimentation! Yet as in some of the best prog work of the period – such as by Can or Faust – there's a sense of focus and groove that really holds the whole thing together. And given that these guys had already had years of experience in the studio – on both sides of the production booth – they really have a wonderful ear for extremely inventive sounds. Titles include "Kumalo", "The Feed-Back", and "Quasars". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare work from this legendary Italian improvisational group – a lineup that features famous modernists Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, and Walter Bianchi – as well as soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone! The sounds are quite dark and abstract – often somewhere out in the space of Morricone's more atonal soundtracks from the early 70s, but even looser overall – as you can feel the improvisational energy of the players coming together – feeling out space between spare percussion, strings, and horns. The record actually has one famous funky number – "Haschich", which has this amazing break underneath some off-tuned sitar and other odd noises – but most other tracks are much darker and more outside. Other titles include "Orgasmo", "Eroina", "Aghi", "Warum", "Raptus", and "Stridori" – plus another take on "Haschich". LP, Vinyl record album

An extremely unique Henry Mancini soundtrack – scored for this European film that starred Marcello Mastroianni and Ingrid Bergman – with a sound that's almost in a similar mood to the work of Ennio Morricone from the same time! Most of the tracks are fairly dark and moody – with simple themes running through them, handled by spare strings, augmented by bits of instrumentation on guitar or melodica – really nice touches, and that same sense of restraint that Henry Mancini was bringing to some of his own instrumental albums of the early 70s. The overall sound is quite compelling – if less groovy than most of Mancini's more famous work from the 60s. Titles include "Two Girls", "The Retreat", "Invitation", "Love Theme From Sunflower", and "Giovanna". CD features lots of bonus tracks in mono – 19 more numbers that include film versions from the score, and a demo of "Loss Of Love", and a piano demo of "Love Theme From Sunflower". CD

The music has a warmly gentle quality that's similar to some of Ennio Morricone's work in this mode – tunes that alternate between soft strings, stepping instrumentation, and even bits of vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso, sounding a bit sweeter here than on some of her spookier soundtracks! The tunes float very nicely in the breeze – sometimes hanging bit a single piano note or two – sometimes getting a bit more drive from rhythms that verge on funky, but hang back just a bit. And as with any of the great Morricone scores from the time, there's a few key variations on the themes that spin out beautifully as the set rolls on – creating a great sense of sonic interplay!

Fantastic work from one of the grooviest singers of the 60s – the amazing Mina, a vocalist who hardly made waves on this side of the Atlantic, but who served up a wealth of wonderful material from the Italian scene at the time! You might know Mina from a few key soundtrack contributions she made over the years – her vocal range is stunning – and arrangements here are often by important forces from the Italian cinema scene – like Ennio Morricone, Piero Piccioni, Augusto Martelli, and Bruno Canforna – all of whom give Mina these full, rich backings that really match the vivid quality of her voice! But there's also groovy elements at the core, too – styles that are similar to French or British female pop of the period – especially with some of the soul currents of the latter – but shaped differently, given both Mina's style, and the Italian language and the way it comes across in song. The package is long overdue – maybe the first-ever done for the international market on Mina's music – and as with all work on Ace, the presentation is great, with very detailed notes that will teach you plenty while you enjoy the songs – a lineup that includes "Se Telefonando", "E L'Umo Per Me", "Io Sono Quel Che Sono", "No", "Citta Vuota", "Tu Farai", "Beve Amore", "Addio", "Insensatez", "Se C'E Una Cosa Che Mi Fa Impazzire", "TA Ra Ta Ta", and "La Banda".

Some of the darkest work we've ever heard from Bruno Nicolai – an Italian soundtrack composer who's usually in the more groovy side of the spectrum – but who here proves that he can be as moody and offbeat as his frequent musical partner, Ennio Morricone! The tunes have some occasional swinging moments, but often move into more offbeat, atonal modes – such as those explored by Morricone in his tenser horror soundtracks, or in his music with Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – the latter of whom would be a great comparison to the sound of this set. We've always loved Nicolai's music, and we're even more impressed that he can come up with work of this nature too – especially when he still finds a way to make things feel slightly cinematic.

Piero Piccioni really hit his stride for the music to this film that was directed by its star – the effervescent Alberto Sordi – a fantastic send-up on the London scene of the time, set to a range of modly romping tunes! Piccioni handled the main music – often with loads of great piano and organ lines – but there's also some great vocal moments too, sung by Lydia MacDonald, Julie Rogers, and even Sordi – and the record also features a few touches from I Cantori Moderni, and a bit of music from Ennio Morricone too. Titles include the wonderful "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in London – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me".

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Most of the music is by Piccioni and the wonderful vocal group I Cantori Moderni, with Edda Dell'Orso on vocals – but the CD also features some work by Lydia Mac Donald, Julie Rogers, and Ennio Morricone. Includes a few versions of the "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". Very groovy – and this special Japanese CD features 33 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniKenner/More Than A Miracle (3CD set) ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1967/1969. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-header of material from Italian maestro Piero Piccioni – presented in a wonderfully rich, heavily-detailed style – the first time we've ever seen his music handled in the lavish Film Score Monthly manner! First up is the obscure soundtrack to Kenner – a late 60s Jim Brown film, done by Piero with a wonderfully sensitive soundtrack – really lovely woodwind interplay, with an undercurrent of jazz – almost a Johnny Mandel sort of mode, but with some of the occasional mod touches you'd expect from Piccioni on some of his better-known scores. There's some cuts that have a nicely pronounced soul jazz vibe – while others move between some lyrical sounds that are mighty sweet – and there's some bits that feature organ played with the raspy edges that always make Piero's handling of the instrument so different from others'. CD 1 features 32 tracks from Kenner – including some rare bonus material too – all conducted by Bruno Nicolai! CDs 2 and 3 feature More Than A Miracle, a dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". This expanded package features very detailed notes – and a whopping 70 tracks from the film – the full soundtrack album initially issued on MGM, 19 cuts from the film score itself, and an additional 36 bonus tracks too!

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniForever ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
New material from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – one of the key forces in helping define the sound of Italian film scores in the 60s and sound library material in the 70s – still alive and well here, and working in a style that's maybe a more intimately focused presentation of his talents! The maestro handles lead instruments throughout, echoing all of the special solo sound he'd use on soundtracks – both under his own name, and with other composers, like Ennio Morricone – and the set features Alessandroni on guitars, keyboard, recorder, mandolin, and accordion – plus some of his famous whistling work too! The set was produced by his son, who handles some other instruments too – and there's light touches of strings on a number of tunes. Titles include "My Moon", "Una Favola", "The Milky Way", "Walking On The Lane", "Melody On The Hill", "A Waltz Under The Stars", "Summer Of Emotions", "Drive To Nowhere", and "Rhino Poaching". CD

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiLa Notte Dell'Ultimo Giorno/Processo Per Direttissima ... CD
Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two rare 70s gems from the great Stelvio Cipriani – back to back on a single CD! First up is La Notte Dell'Ultimo Giorno – a record that begins with some of the slinkier modes that we love in Cipriani's music, but which also gets nicely funky at points too – almost always graced by the kind of keyboard lines that make Stelvio such a standout! The keys include electric harpsichord, organ, and what sounds like some of that oddly-tuned piano that Ennio Morricone might use – flowering out in this beautifully balanced mix of modes. Processo Per Direttissima is a film about terrorism and police brutality, but one that gets this wonderfully sweet score from Cipriani – served up in flowing basslines, light percussion, gentle strings, and the kind of forward-moving elements we love so much in Stelvio's music – a quality here that sounds much more like his love or erotic scores than you'd guess from such a thriller! CD features 25 tracks in all – over 70 minutes of music. CD

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiFemina Ridens/Sophisticated Shake ... 7-inch
CAM/Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
The great title track to one of the best scores from Italian maestro Stelvio Cipriani – a tune that bursts out with funky drums that kick into soaring orchestrations, topped by this wicked female vocal from Olympia – whose singing style is as vibrant as the instrumentation! Edda Dell'Orso sings on "Sophisticated Shake" on the flipside – but in that weird breathy style that she used with Ennio Morricone – more voice as sound than as lyrics, next to a hip-stepping bass and cool echoey piano! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)
