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 ... $24.99
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 MorriconeCorleone (180 gram gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... About July 27, 2020 (delayed)
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.

Ennio MorriconeDedicato Al Mare Egeo (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... $28.99
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 MorriconeFistful Of Dollars ... CD
BMG/Razor & Tie, 1964. Used ... $14.99
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 ... $24.99
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 MorriconeIl Pentito (180 gram silver & black vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)... About July 27, 2020 (delayed)
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 MorriconeLe Clan Des Siciliens (aka Il Clan Dei Siciliani) ... LP
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

Ennio MorriconeMade In France ... CD
FGL (France), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $6.99
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.

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Restless, 1983. Used ... $12.99
Magical mainstream Morricone – a sublime score for Sergio Leone's epic tale of gangland growth in the 20th century! Although penned for a wider audience, most of the best Morricone elements are still at play in this soundtrack – a great sense of space and timing, and some key use of spare, isolated instruments – including the pan flute of George Zamfir, an odd choice given the New York setting of the film, but one that comes off beautifully in the mix. Strings back up most of the tunes, but they're never too sleepy – just slightly sentimental, but in a really good way. Titles include "Childhood Memories", "Once Upon A Time In America", "Cockeye's Song", "Childhood Poverty", "Friends", "Photographic Memories", "Speakeasy", and "Poverty". CD also features some bonus tracks too! CD

Warner/We Want Sounds (France), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... On August 29, 2020
A great Morricone soundtrack for a Jean-Paul Belmondo thriller – a score that starts out spare and brooding, then builds nicely as things move on – with lots of cool bottom-end sounds that make the whole thing really move up from the depths! 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". (Note: This item is not for sale online until noon on Saturday, August 29.

Ennio MorriconeSpogliati Protesta Uccidi/Quando L'Amore E Sensualita ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1973/1974. Used ... $16.99
Two very sexy scores by Morricone! Spogliati Protesta Uccidi is from a strange film about the daughter of an industrialist who falls for a black revolutionary – and it's got some nice tunes that are kind of an Italian easy take on American soul music, still mostly in the lighter mode of Morricone's groovier work, but touched with some blue notes and a few all-out bits of soul instrumentation that really make them sparkle! Quando L'Amore E Sensualita is one of those soundtracks that features Morricone's great use of wordless female vocals, and it's got a dreamy ethereal quality that's extremely haunting. There's a few atonal moments, but the best bits are the ones with the vocalized theme. Titles include "Quando L'Amore E'Sensualita", "No One Can", "Sinket Primo", "Iniziazione 72", "Incubo Femmineo", "Era La Tua Purezza", "Luce Chaira Per Vergine", "Tatantella Naif", "Soluzione Borghese", and "Giochi Naif".

Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 30.00
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

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeEnnio Morricone De Sergio Leone A Quentin Tarantino (4CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

MCA/Quartet (Spain), 1982. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

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.

AMS (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An archetypal record all the way through – with some of the best Morricone western styles from the period – and still one of the greatest in its genre! To match the darkness of the film, Morricone's working here in a spare, stark mode – using bits of guitar and whistling to state the themes of the tunes in a simple, yet dramatic way. The legendary Alessandro Alessandroni handles both of these aspects of the record – as well as the I Cantori Moderni choir which sings on a few numbers too. Edda Dell'Orso lends her haunting, wordless vocal, too – and the titles include "Per Qualche Dollaro In Piu","La Resa Dei Conti", "Psserviatori Osservati", "Il Corpo", "Poker D'Assi", "Carillon", "Addio Colonnello" and Il Visio Di Uccidere".

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeFour Files On Grey Velvet/4 Mosche Di Velluto Grigio (clear vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Death Waltz (UK), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the reissue market years later, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single issued by Cinevox in 1971. The leadoff track – "4 Mosche Di Vellutto Grigio (titoli)" – is actually a bit funky, with some very heavy drums and cascading fuzzy guitar riffs that sound very nice. Then, the record moves into spookier material – like the cut "Come Un Madrigale", and a number of self-titled themes – all of which feature strange harpsichord work, dark orchestral passages, and some very spooky production work! Fortunately, the score ends on an upbeat note – a hard driving, beat group sounding version of the main theme that's a nice cap to the whole package. This reissue includes new mastering from the Cinevox archives – and 19 never heard rarities. 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.

A dark and extremely avant garde soundtrack from the great Ennio Morricone – one that's done in collaboration with his own Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an ensemble with roots in film scoring, but expressions that are more in the mode of 20th century avant! The music is a blend of free improvisation and more straight ahead jazz – with electric guitar, trumpet, violin, and percussion mixed with lots of weird effects and electronics – much more experimental than some of Morricone's more famous soundtracks of the time, and given a nice sense of direction from conductor Bruno Nicolai. The whole thing's incredibly spooky – one of the most turgid scores we've ever heard from the pen of Morricone – and the titles include "Sequita", "Evaporazione", "Dal Sogno E Ritorno", "Folle Folle", and "Notte E Misteri".

AMS (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite soundtracks ever from the legendary Ennio Morricone – a sublime set that's a perfect summation of all his best jazz, bossa, and mod elements – served up in one sparkling set that's gotten countless play on our turntable over the years! The main theme is a classic – a haunting, drifting track that really illustrates Morricone's capacity for warmer elements – something that some folks forget, if they only know his horror music and more ambitious work. Other tunes follow with a similar vibe – each a fresh change, but still awash in sweet and dreamy sounds, but with this great undercurrent of groove as well. Titles include "Metti, Una Sera A Cena", "Sauna", "Nina", "Ric Happening", "Croce D'Amore", and "Terrazza Vuota". Also features the bonus track "Hurry To Me"! LP, Vinyl record album

BTF (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of Ennio Morricone's most famous scores – and certainly the one that got him recognized worldwide as a genius! The whole thing's pretty damn eerie – about as eerie as the movie, which is a real stunner – and it shifts from dark orchestral themes to sparer numbers that use guitar, banjo, and some really creepy whistling to set the mood. A tremendous achievement – and music that helped advance the sound of film scores to a whole new level. Some tracks feature vocal work by I Cantorni Moderni, directed by Alessandro Alessandroni – and titles include "C'Era Una Volta Il West", "Cheyenne", "Armonica", "L'Uomo Dell'Armonica" and "L'America Di Jill".

CAM/Transversales Disques (France), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". Also includes two unreleased bonus tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

Genius soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone – a later score done for director Pedro Almodovar, and maybe one of Morricone's best from these later years! It's almost as if the maestro was setting something special aside for Almodovar – as there's many tunes here that echo some of the most creative Morricone modes of the 70s, at a level that didn't always show up on his more famous film scores of the decade – and the music is awash in spacious, open lines that shimmer with some fantastic flugelhorn work from jazz musicians Franco Piana, Giovanni Santucci, and Oscar Valdambrini. Titles include "Inquieta", "Noche Urbana", "La Cuidad Se Meuve", "Atame", "Resistire", "Introduccion Al Pisquiatrico", and "Cuento Infantil". LP, Vinyl record album

Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the more unusual Morricone scores of the 70s – penned as part of a collaboration with director Maximilian Schell, and done in ways that are a bit different than some of the maestro's Italian work! There's plenty of voices at play here – the lead of Edda Dell'Orso, and harmonies from Il Cantori Moderni – used in ways that are sometimes a bit sweeter than usual, with a level of warmth that might not be what you'd expect from the movie! Morricone also throws in a few waltz-like melodies, too – almost the sort of numbers you'd find in a Nino Rota score – but as the soundtrack moves on, things get noticeably darker, too – and move into a rich array of odd sounds and weird tones.

At times, there's a slightly more American 60s feel to the soundtrack than some of Morricone's other work – but in a really great way that makes for less dark corners, and brighter instrumental flourishes that really stand out.

Tzadik, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking album, put together by Zorn and a group of downtown New York hipsters, as a fitting hommage to the genius of Ennio Morricone! The track list sticks to mostly the bigger known numbers, and the album's got a darkness that we'd actually say was a bit out of place, considering the choice of tracks – but the groups formed by Zorn do a pretty good job of breathing new life into some of the tracks, and the album was a key moment in the recognition of Morricone as one of the century's greatest composers. Players include Robert Quine, Tim Berne, Arto Lindsay, Jim Staley, Bill Frisell, Christian Marclay, Anton Fier, and even Big John Patton. Titles include "Erotico", "Once Upon A Time In The West", "Giu La Testa", "Battle Of Algiers", and "The Big Gundown". Plus, this Anniversary Edition comes with a pile of bonus tracks – including "The Sicilian Clan", "The Ballad Of Hank McCain", and "Soegliatti & Uccidi". CD

Four Flies (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
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

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 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

Quartet (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
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

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

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

Dreamy stuff from this groovy Italian studio combo! Marc 4 are often better known for their hard and heavy funk numbers, but this set's filled with lighter bossa nova tunes – floating around like the best cuts from classic soundtracks by Armando Trovajoli, or some of the sweeter tunes from Ennio Morricone. Instrumentation includes organ, bass, guitar, and drums, plus some very nice wordless vocals – in true Morricone mode. For some strange reason, the folks at Plastic decided (or so say the notes!) to add in that "scratchy record sound" to "remind us of these old shake-bossa party from the 60s." We're a bit suspicious of this – and the real reason is probably that they transferred the material from old LPs instead of tapes – but we can kind of forgive them for that because the dreamy music is so nice! 17 tracks in all – and titles include "Summer In Love", "On The Train", "Brazilian Scene", "European Bossa", "Babette", "Atmosfere Dolci", "Brazil Sound", and "Weston".

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!

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.

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.

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 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

One of the most obscure chapters in the career of Ennio Morricone – important avant garde work recorded in the mid 60s, just at a point when he was beginning to rise in soundtrack fame! The ensemble is a key Italian modernist group featuring Morricone, Giovanni Piazza, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Gualtiero Branch, Jesus Villa Rojo, and Francesco Evangelisti – mostly classically-trained musicians, but working here in a set of improvisations that are extremely spare, and which are very much at the lower end of the sound spectrum. Many of the sounds on the set are right at the frontiers of hearing – and others, while more present, disappear as quickly as they emerge – further enforcing the mystery and mood of the record. And while the overall style is quite different than Morricone's soundtrack work, the group was clearly a key testing ground for his ideas of sound and space that emerged later. Titles include "Soup", "Scratch", "Settimino", and "Eflot". LP, Vinyl record album

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
