Ennio MorriconeCosa Avete Fatto A Solange? (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 31.99
A beautiful illustration of the balance of light and darkness in the best work of Ennio Morricone – and an obscure soundtrack that dances between both sides of the spectrum! The main theme is incredibly sweet – one of those lightly drifting Morricone numbers that features wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso – but other tunes then go much deeper into the depths – hitting odd tones, moody instrumental passages, and somber rhythms that are then surprisingly offset by lighter numbers that are peppered throughout the score. The instrumentation includes a number of unusual twists that are not typical of Morricone at the time – and titles include "Cadenze", "Aleatorio", "Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange", "Raccapriccio", "Una Tromba E La Sua Notte", "Fine Di Solange", and "Sottinitesi".

Ennio MorriconeDa Uomo A Uomo (Death Rides A Horse) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1967. New Copy ... About February 7, 2021 (delayed)
Great Morricone music for this legendary Italian western – a film that was first advertised with the line "When you've waited 15 years to a kill a man, it's a shame you can only kill him once!" The music here shows the same sort of determination as that statement – a driving, relentless theme by Morricone, taken to greater heights by the vocal chorus of I Cantori Moderni – who bring a nice sense of drama to the music, and almost underscore some of the darker elements that the maestro would use more heavily in the 70s! And as usual with Ennio, there's lots of weird, unusual elements at play – including oddly-tuned guitar parts, a spooky flute line, and even some subtle sonic modes that we can't figure out at all. Titles include "Death Rides A Horse", "Guitar Nocturne", "Man & A Whistle", "Anger & Sorrow", "Alone In The Night", and "Mystic & Severe". 2LP version features the expanded score – 25 tracks in all!

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeDedicato Al Mare Egeo (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... $29.99
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

Ennio MorriconeExorcist II – The Heretic (florescent green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... On March 26, 2021
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to orchestrations that nobody else could touch – a redemptive sound which is then mixed with some much darker elements underneath – including some rough percussion, spooky voices, and other earthy touches that really stir things up. In fact, the overall effect of the record might scare you a lot more than the film – especially if you played it alone at home, late at night, with the lights off, and your head spinning round! Titles include "Great Bird Of The Sky", "Little Afro-Flemish Mass", "Regan's Theme", "Pazuzu", "Night Flight", and "Exorcism". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeGood, The Bad, And The Ugly – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Very Good ... $24.99
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 "The Sundown", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "Marcia", "The Desert", "The Strong", and "The Trio". LP, Vinyl record album

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 (Netherlands), 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

Ennio MorriconeL'Avventuriero ... LP
GDM/Goodfellas (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About April 30, 2021
A string-laden, sweeping score by the great Ennio Morricone – for the 18th Century pirate romance L'Avventuriero! The film provided an opportunity for a wide departure from the spaghetti western work Morricone was so famously working on at the time – with some really sensitive, mellow moments! The string arrangements and light pianos manage to balance between epic romance and tempered melodicism very delicately. The work of a master! Titles include "L'Avventuriero Pts 1, 2 & 3", "Il Rogo Della Strega", "Un Attimo Di Tenerezza", "Paura Dei Ricordi", "Tema Di Peirol", "Il Varo" and "Momenti Serini". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeL'Istruttoria E'Chiusa Dimentichi (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
One of the darkest, moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Ennio Morricone – even in comparison to some of his atonal horror work of the 70s! The vibe here is almost 20th Century avant chamber – a bit like work from Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, but even more experimental – as odd bits of sound samples are filtered through these dark sonic textures, string parts, and electronics – all with a style that's very musique concrete overall! Tracks are much longer than usual for a soundtrack too – and the record has an experimental greatness that really stands apart from the film. Titles include "Disordini", "Ordini", "Ergastolo", and "Memento". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeLa Cugina (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
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

Ennio MorriconeLa Resa Dei Conti (aka The Big Gundown) (180 gram orange & yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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", "Run Man Run", "Primo Deserta", and "Corri Uomo Corri". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeLe Serpent (Il Serpente) ... CD
RCA/Music Box (France), 1972. New Copy ... About March 5, 2021 (delayed)
A groovy soundtrack to a film we'd love to see – an obscure thriller that starred Henry Fonda and Yul Brynner! The style of the music runs between the two poles of work from Morricone at the time – with some cuts that are spare, quiet, and very pretty, and others that are fuller, more turgid, and filled with the kind of jagged touches that can make his soundtracks incredibly dark. The main theme – "Il Serpente" – is offered in 2 great versions, one spare and pretty, the other a bit more driving, but still pretty darn groovy. Other tracks include "Canzone Lontana", "Nadine", "Orazione", "Tema Per Una Donna Sola", and "Parata Militare". CD

A wonderfully lush score from Ennio Morricone – done for this end-of-century film with Tim Roth in the lead – and which features the surprising appearance of Roger Waters and Eddie Van Halen on the track "Lost Boys Calling"! Don't worry, the rest of the album is prime Morricone material – of that more orchestral style he often did for larger budget Hollywood films, but which still had all of his best ideas intact. Titles include "Danny's Blues", "Second Crisis", "Ships & Snow", "Legend Of The Pianist", "The Crave", "Playing Love", "Mozart Reincarnated", and "1900s Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About March 26, 2021
A rare early American soundtrack release by Morricone – written for a 1964 shockumentary on the state of Italian youth! As such, it's got lots of short jazzy tunes that run at a pretty fast groove, ostensibly to show the dissipation of the kids as they learn how to party – almost inspired by the realist style of early 60s TV, with a mix of bold themes, and more somber, contemplative ones. I Cantori Moderni sing wordless dreamy vocals on some numbers – and the shorter tracks offer up a very different sound of Morricone than you might expect – one that's more linked to some of his earlier pop productions in Italy! Ken Coleman sings the title cut "Funny World" in English, but stick to the instrumentals – like "Waltz Bossa Nova", "Twist Of The Spinsters", "The City", "Velvet Muscles", and "Forbidden Party" – which are all nice and groovy!

An impeccable collection of work from one of the greatest soundtrack talents ever – a package that brings together a range of rare work from the 70s, including a number of previously-unreleased tracks! The music does have some of the dark tinges promised by the title, but this is less the atonal, avant Morricone than the more sonically mindblowing side of the composer – all sorts of unusual ways to use and record familiar instruments, offbeat combinations of notes and sounds, and an overall ear for the scope of the music that always leaves us breathless when we hear material this strong!

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeSenza Movemente ... LP
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $44.99
Beautifully slow-building work from Ennio Morricone – caught right at that near-perfect start of the 70s point when he was a master of understatement and spare musical elements! Many numbers begin with a sound that's often very spare – sliding out of the darkness sometimes with just a whisper, sometimes with a bit more force – woodwinds hidden in the shadows, piano murmuring softly, or strings that slide slowly once, then strike with more force the next time around. There's also a cool whistling bit that snakes through a few of the best tunes – a haunting theme with Alessandroni-type appeal – and the orchestrations for the album were conducted by Bruno Nicolai. The sound isn't as sweetly gliding as you might expect, but it's also not as atonal as other Morricone moments too. Titles include "In Pieno Petto", "Il Movente (2)", "Senza Motivo Apparente", "Ricera", "Ricera (2)", "Sospensione Folle", and "In Pieno Petto (2)". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeThemes – Passion (180 gram pink & purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Not the trashy kind of passion you might expect from the cover – but instead, one of the most trademark sides of legendary film composer Ennio Morricone – his talent for building a tune up slowly, almost out of nowhere, then letting it flow gently with a wonderful sense of space and sound! These cuts move between the bossa and jazz-inspired modes of his late 60s soundtracks, and that richer style that he would use to great international fame in the 80s – making the music here a great 70s bridge, with some wonderful tracks from a variety of Italian films of the time. The set features work from the films Il Giro Del Mondo, Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange, Le Due Sagioni Della Vita, Amanti D'Oltretomba, Cuore Di Mamma, I Figli Chiedono Perche, Per Le Antiche Scale, Maddalena, Mi Vedrai Tornare, and other lost classics – 21 tracks in all.

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Dark genius from the legendary Ennio Morricone – one of the most important film composers of the 20th Century, and a master in just about any style! The work here represents a shift that Morricone made into darker modes as the 70s approached – sounds that stepped off from some of the moodier moments of his 60s western scores – especially those times when he might abstract the instrumentation, or use some elements borrowed from his experience in the Italian avant garde. These tracks are still tuneful, but also have a moody complexity that's breathtaking – and which would rewrite the rules for Hollywood soundtracks, as well as the Italian scene, for decades to come. The 2LP set features tracks from the films Il Segreto, Copkiller, Le Foto Proibite, Il Trio Infernale, I Sopravvissuti, La Corta Notte Delle Bambole, Citta Violent, Dimensioni Sonore, and Il Serpente – all wrapped up in a beautiful package!

Peter Tevis/Ennio MorriconePastures Of Plenty/Notte Infinita ... 7-inch
Trunk (UK), 1962. New Copy ... $14.99
A record with a very unusual history – a version of a Woody Guthrie tune sung by American folk singer Peter Tevis – but arranged in Rome in 1962 by a young Ennio Morricone – who fills the tune with all these strange sounds and weird elements, all of which really preface his later soundtrack creations for Sergio Leone! At some level, there's almost two things going on here – Tevis singing the vocals in a very earnest way – while Morricone takes off in a direction that's very much his own, and a key early flowering of his genius. "Notte Infinita" follows in a very similar style – with lyrics in Italian. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeI Due Evasi Di Sing Sing ... LP
Sonor (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – as you might guess from the black and white images on the cover – and a more unusual setting than some of his famous later work! The movie is a prison comedy, and is handled by Morricone with style that's heavily in the crime jazz side of the spectrum – maybe more in the mode of Piero Piccioni in the early 60s, and occasionally mixed with some more dramatic tracks, and a few playful comedic moments. The whole thing is a very different slice of the maestro than expected, and still pretty darn great – a key look at his roots before stardom. Titles include the vocal number "Oh Little Birdy" – plus "Gangsters", "Al Night Club", "Bossa Per Gloria", "Incontro Dei Boss", "Le Sedie Elettriche", "Ballando Ballando", and "Il Tempo Che Passa".

Kapp/La La Land, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily 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!

An unusual late 70s soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that maybe has a bit more instrumentation tuned to the time, but still handled with all the great Morricone sense of space and timing! 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 & OthersEnnio Morricone Remixes Vol 1 ... CD
Compost (Germany), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A soundtrack for the 21st Century – original film tunes written and scored by il maestro Morricone, re-mixed and re-done by the Compost Records collective! Compost isn't normally as into the soundtrack bag as some of their other contemporaries on the European scene – which is why this project is even fresher than other remix projects of its type. Most of the artists here focus on the core elements of the tunes – going for the one time change, tonal passage, or light melody that makes the tune – then extrapolating that into a whole new work of their own design. Morricone's never sounded so contemporary, and the package is filled with new grooves that really change up the pace. Titles include "Ninna Nanna In Blu" by Raw Deal, "Amore Come Dolore" by Needs, "La Cugina" by Amalgamation Of Soundz, "Rivoluzione (con-fusion mix)" by Butti 49, "La Moda" by International Pony, "Il Buono Il Brutto Il Cattivo" by Swell Session, "Beat No 3" by Leroy Hanghofer, and "Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene" by Alex Attias.

✨✧ Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Luis Bacalov & Ennio MorriconePitturamusica ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

GDM/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

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 selections from the Leone films For A Fistful Of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Good The Bad & The Ugly, and Once Upon A Time In The West – and Morricone music used in the Tarantino films Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, and Hateful Eight.

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!

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

A huge international hit for Morricone – quite a surprise, given the warmth and whimsy in the music – which is a real change from some of the maestro's darker moments of the 70s! The tunes often use light electric instrumentation in these really nice ways – playful, and certainly comedic – but with these occasional deeper touches that are definitely Morricone, too – especially in some of the slower moments that have this great interplay between woodwinds and keyboards. One of these is the track "L'Onorevole Famiglia", worth the price of the album alone! LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Goodfellas (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

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.

A collection of classic horror soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone – mostly early 70s material that represent the maestro at the height of the early giallo genre! The tunes here are often a bit more obtuse, atonal, and abstract than some of Morricone's lighter grooves – and his work for the genre is arguably even more sophisticated and dark than the images on the screen – filled with complicated orchestrations, odd patterns of sound, and really striking instrumental moments. The tunes here aren't for the feint-of-heart – and they include some of Morricone's tensest recordings ever! The set features 16 tracks in all – from the soundtracks to Spasmo, Il Segreto, Il Gatto A Nove Code, Il Serpente, La Corta Notte Delle Bambole Di Vetro, Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura, Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange, Senza Movente, and Le Foto Proibite.

A stunning set that's packed with some of our favorite music from the soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – that special style he created in the late 60s, as a way of blending together influences from jazz, bossa nova, and other instrumental styles – hardly the sleepy lounge music of the American scene – as the format here is always full of touches that are subtle yet complex! The music is wonderful – warm, but never too sentimental – groovy, but never in a cheap or cloying way – and always presented with a focus on unusual instrumentation, inventive arrangements, and production modes that make the the familiar seem strange – even while still coming across with a warm and appealing vibe. The 2LP set is a beautiful package – and includes tracks from Verushka, La Donna Invisible, Gli Intoccabili, D'Amore Si Muor, Scusi FAccio L'Amore, L'Ailibi, Ruba Al Prossimo Tuo, Citta Violenta, and Come Impari Ad Amare Le Donne.

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".

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".

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!

Sweetness and darkness – perfectly blended together in this classic mid 70s soundtrack by Ennio Morricone! The main theme of the film – "Bambole" – is one of those Mondo Morricone type numbers that floats along on a gossamy sheen – vocals gliding softly over light woodwinds, stepping rhythms, and a bit of electric harpsichord – all used gently, but beautifully to create a wonderfully groovy little tune. But other numbers on the album are much more tense – strings drawn tighter, and sometimes into more atonal passages – and offset by descending woodwind passages that further underscore the melancholy of the film! Additional instrumentation includes some abstracted and slightly fuzzy guitar – and the whole album beautifully blends the sweet and dark tracks together with a great sense of pacing. Titles include "Bambole", in a number of variations – plus variations on "Spasmo" and "Stress Infinito". 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!

The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from cosmic soul jazz to leftfield hip hop! An impressive guest roster from both realms participate – with appearances by Herbie Hancock (!!!), Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, frequent collaborator and stylistic sibling Thundercat, strings arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson and others. Standout moments include the tracks "Tesla" and "Moment Of Hesitation", both with some incredible keyboards by Herbie Hancock, plus the uber-moody, Ennio Morricone-sampled "Turtles" – but the whole thing is great, and shows that the Flying Lotus phenomenon is still in ascension, circa 2014. Other cuts include "Cold Dead", "Never Catch Me" with Kendrick Lamar, "Dead Man's Tetris" with Snoop Dogg, "Turkey Dog Coma", "Stirring", "Obligatory Cadence", "The Protest" and more.

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoGilberto With Turrentine (Spanish version – with bonus tracks) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
CTI/Beatball (Korea), 1971. Used Gatefold ... $22.99
An expanded version of this classic – with 6 more bonus tracks, 4 of which were arranged by Ennio Morricone! The core album is incredible 70s work from the lovely Astrud Gilberto – a rare effort for the CTI label that has her teaming up with arranger Eumir Deodato and saxophonist Stanley Turrentine – all in a groove that's totally different than most of her earlier work! Astrud's breathy vocals are still wonderfully intact – but they're given a more spacious approach in the arrangements – strings mixes with rolling basslines, soaring keyboards, and stone cold tenor from Stanley – in a groove that's simply wonderful, and which takes off in a whole new direction than before! Other players include Airto, Sivuca, Hubert Laws, and Dom Um Romao – and tracks include classic versions of "Ponteio", "Vera Cruz", and "Zazueira" that are all some of the most grooving takes on the tunes ever – plus "Historia De Amor", "Where There's A Heartache", "Brazilian Tapestry", and "Wanting Things". Bonus tracks include "Love Story", "If Not For You", "Acercendome A Ti", "Argomenti", "En Tu Piel", and "Un Donna Che Ti Ama". Great package too – LP-styled gatefold sleeve, and nice and heavy! CD

Henry ManciniSunflower – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
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

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!

✨✧ MinaQueen Of Italian Pop – Classic Ri-Fi Recordings 1963 to 1967 ... CD
Ri Fi/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Mario Molina with Edda Dell'OrsoAsh/Gli Angeli Del 2000 ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99
Two of the grooviest tracks from the soundtrack to Gli Angeli Del 2000 – one of the best musical moments from Mario Molina! Edda Dell'Orso sings in the lead on "Ash" – but the tune is funky, and Edda's actually singing real lyrics – not the wordless vocalizations she usually does with Ennio Morricone! The tune's got a strutting bassline over the drums, and some mighty nice horns – and it's backed by the main theme of the soundtrack, which has a mix of groovy guitar, funky drums, and chimes that seems very inspired by the Messe Pour Le Temps Present of Pierre Henry! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bruno NicolaiDefense De Savoir ... LP
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. Sealed ... $14.99
A cool little soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – penned for a French film instead of an Italian movie – and with a sound that's a bit different than usual! Nicolai makes nice use of some sweeter themes here – a hint of the modes you might find in Michel Legrand or Francis Lai in the 70s – which lightens things up a bit at the start, before some darker, moodier moments creep into the mix – underscoring the film with some more traditional Giallo elements – those tense, spine-tingling styles that Bruno developed with his frequent partner, Ennio Morricone. There's some isolated piano and guitar lines that have a stark, scraping sort of feel – used to great effect on some of the more upbeat numbers – and a few standout bits have electric bass kind of rumbling up from the bottom, which creates a nice sense of urgency. Titles include "La Verite", "Le Pouvoir", "Theme De Juliette", "Sans Espoir", "Concert A La Cour", "Tango Express", and "Tourbillon Final". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno NicolaiEspressioni (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gemelli/Loneos Editions (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99
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. Titles include "Simbolica", "Risolutiva", "Metodica", "Vocale", "Immaginativa", and "Integrante". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Silvano D'AuriaLa Mano Lunga Del Padrino (Long Arm Of The Godfather) (with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This Godfather's got a mighty long arm – and a mighty groovy sound, too – one that includes some great leaping rhythms bubbling up with basslines, and plenty of fantastic vocals from both Edda Ell'Orso and I Cantori Modern! 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! Titles include "Raffica", "Fuga In La Minore", "Sabina", "Streap", and "Porto Cammelli". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Group (Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza)Feed-Back (with bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNiente ... LP
Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of compelling rhythms and odd instrumentation – in ways that are undeniably funky at points, and downright trippy at others! The drumming seems to draw a lot from the changes in German prog – with a very specific Can influence at work – and other elements move in and out of the mix in a really great way – clearly improvisational, but when the groove gets going, it's clear that the players also can't help starting to jam. The record was recorded in 1971, but never issued at the time – and titles include "Niente", "Bambu", "Toms", "Renitenza", "Mattatoio", "Down", "Sieben", and "Bali". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest soundtracks of the 60s – presented here in a massive package that brings forth a wealth of never-reissued music! 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". Titles include a few versions of "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". 3CD set features the full original album in both mono and stereo – plus 71 bonus tracks from the film score!

✨✧ Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaEroina (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cometa (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Franco MicalizziAdolescenza Perversa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The world premiere of this sweet 70s soundtrack from Franco Micalizzi – a great batch of erotic-tinged tunes originally penned for an Italian film about teenage lust! 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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500!)
