Alessandro AlessandroniAfro Discoteca Reworked EP ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1978/2020. New Copy ... $22.99
Four fantastic tracks from the Afro Discoteca record by sound library genius Alesseandro Alessandroni – all reworked in contemporary versions, yet in a way that never loses the funky charm of the originals! There's a real respect for classic styles going on here – partly because the choice of remixers is so strong, the project features just the right sort of artists to keep things right, while still also adding in their own contributions too – maybe some extra keyboards or subtle electronic elements that never get in the way of the original tribal disco inspiration! Titles include "Afro Voodoo (Bovisa rmx with Calibro 35)", "Afro Darkness (Pad rmx)", "Afro Discoteca (Jolly Mare lifting)", and "Afro Darkness (LUCA quirky version)". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniBackground Disco EP ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99
Fantastic funk from Alessandro Alessanadroni – certainly not a household name to most folks, but one of the coolest composers on the Italian scene of the 60s and 70s! Alessandroni first rose to fame doing film score work in the 60s, but by the time of these cuts, he was very much up front as an artist able to take on just about any sort of style – working here in a cool groove that's not entirely the disco promised in the title, and more of an offbeat style of funk that's even groovier! Two tracks feature female lead vocals by Lorena, and I Cantori Moderni sing on all the cuts – titles that include "Baby Come Down" and "I Get You In My Mind", each in two different versions!

Alessandro AlessandroniForever ... 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

Dedy Dread with Olivia RuffDon't Wanna Wake Up/The Rebel (rmx) ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 2020. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
A moody bit of contemporary soul – a set that's got downtempo beats dancing with a mellow bassline – with Olivia Ruff moves between styles of raspy and sweet in presenting the vocals! "The Rebel" is a bit more of a dubby number – crisply stepping along a groove that's maybe more in like with Dedy Dread's name, while Olivia handles the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Piero Montanari/Roberto ConradoProperly/Acromatic ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
"Properly" has these really fast drums right from the start – maybe electronic, maybe not – although the rest of the groove has a sweet electric vibe – kind of moogy elements that move up and down the scale to match the funkiness of the tune, cut up by a nice bit of funky guitar! There's lots more guitar on the flipside – as "Acromatic" almost feels like an Italian sound library copy of some Meters instrumental – from the funky bassline, to the timing of the groove, to the nicely scratchy guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nora OrlandiA Doppia Faccia ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Mindblowing work from Nora Orlandi – one of the few major female film composers on the Italian scene, and a talent that we always rank right up there with the male greats of the golden days! This set has a real Morricone-like balance of darkness and light – although the style is different than Morricone's, with maybe a more open ear for variance across the tracks in the set – even though there's a strongly unified feel to the whole thing – this beautiful journey in sound that begins with the first vocal track, ends with the last one – and moves nicely through a mix of mod groovers, creepier numbers, and both jazzy and avant moments – all arranged and conducted by Robby Poitevin, with lead piano by Nora herself! The limited vinyl reissue features two unissued tracks, plus great notes from Orlandi on the back. LP, Vinyl record album

Braen/Raskovich/Kema (Alessandro Alessanadroni/Giuliano Sorgini/Giulia De Mutiis)Pawnshop EP ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A set that's billed as an EP, but which has more than enough funk and fuzz to top much longer soundtracks – thanks to great work from the legendary Braen/Raskovich studio combo! The group are really the brainchild of Alessandro Alessandroni – who plays guitar, bass, sitar, and even sings a bit – and Giuliano Sorgini – who handles drums, Hammond, and lots of percussion – both seasoned sound library maestros in their own right, but really set loose here under the guise of Braen to explore a unique blend of funk and psychedelia! The drums are amazing – truly heavy on most numbers, making for a super-funky set – and the use of moody guitar and sitar is wonderful, with lots of weird, wild shading – but always in a way that keeps things groovy throughout. Titles include "Please Don't Say No", "Carol", and both vocal and instrumental versions of the three tunes "My Shade", "Telegraph Is Callin", and "Laura What You Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero Piccioni3 Notti D'Amore (3 Nights Of Love) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $29.99
Three nights of love from Piero Piccioni – scored with a sound that's right in between the jazzier styles he used in the first half of the 60s, and the groovier modes from the second half of the decade! Instrumentation matches that of some of Piero's straighter scores from a few years before – but the rhythms are right up front, often with mod or bossa touches – which make the jazzy solos sound even better overall! There's a bit of organ, too – used in a cool other-worldly way – and titles include "Come On Rome", "Sally's Surf", "In The Early Hours", "Just For Fun", "Mistico Amore", and "Nelle Tue Braccia". Also includes some never-released tunes – and Carlo Rustichello composed two of the album's fourteen tracks. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gianni SafredFuturibile – The Life To Come ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1978. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great set of Italian electronics – a set that's maybe known better to Americans than most of the generation, due to a surprising 70s release on Folkways Records! Yet this set is quite different than the more academic electronics that usually grace that label – and echo more that shift towards moogier modes that would really crest in the Italian clubs of the next decade – still here more in a sound library mode, but turned towards nice little tunes that move between spacey instrumentals and keyboard groovers! Gianni Safred plays a range of different instruments – minimoog, polymoog, Arp Odyssey, Fender Rhodes, and Roland keyboards – layering the electronics in a way that's nice and warm, and surprisingly soulful at most moments too. Tracks include "Jazz Computer", "Future City Traffic", "Electronic Brain", "Supermind", "The Life To Come", "Disco Satellite", "Autumn 2001", and "Robot Party". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniSangue Di Sbirro (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury". Features the never-issued bonus cut – "Tema Di Susie #2 (suspance version)". LP, Vinyl record album

Three great tracks from this later soundtrack by 70s maestro Stelvio Ciprani – all of them pretty darn wonderful! The "sequence 1" variation has this slow-building mix of percussion that's nicely exotic, but touched with some of the warmth of Stelvio's more famous crime and erotic scores of years before – while the "sequence 3" and "sequence 5" variations on the flipside offer up both funkier and moodier moments too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two of the funkiest tracks from the Italian film version of Dorian Gray – both real standouts in a store that was mostly moody and spooky overall! The movie was titled Il Dio Chaimato Dorian – and really shines with "Rito A Los Angeles", a tune with heavy romping drums and lots of cool distorted organ lines – which kind of chomp along with the groove! I Marc 4 handled all the performance for both tracks – and "Dorian Gray (shake 3)" is like one of the best bits of exotic funk from their own great records. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two rare soundtrack grooves from Daniele Patucchi – both pretty darn funky! "La Dimostrazione" has this great combination of funky drums and really dark piano – kind of brooding while the drums roll along – then giving way to this starker passage that has stepping strings setting up the groove over the drums! "Elikiller" is a bit more fluid and jazzy – complex, but grooving nicely – as keyboards slide in over these oddly-vamping rhythms in a really great way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great record that definitely lives up to its title and cover – a set that's sort of a cool 70s take on exotica modes from years past! The music here is almost all performed by Giuliano Sorgini – who plays drums and lots of percussion, then adds in electronics too – using keyboard lines to shape the sounds alongside the rhythms, or occasionally making these sound effects that heighten the exotic vibe of the songs! A few tunes verge on funk, but most have a dreamier exotica vibe – and titles include "Miraggio", "Notte Nella Savana", "Senza Scampo", "Sacrificio Umano", "Voodoo", "Agguato", "Viaggio Nel Deserto", "Oasi Nella Giungla", and "Africa Oscura".

"Open Space" has a killer bassline at the start, with fast breaking drums – then moves into this cool moogy keyboard part that fills the groove and gets all cool and moody over the top! "Slogan" has a jazzier vibe overall – but then strings step in and echo the rhythm, while the drums get all this freedom to dance around the kit and really open things up! Plus, there's more moogy magic too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A totally cool set from Piero Umiliani – an Italian composer who was so inventive, he had to create his own studio just to find a space to express all of his many ideas! And while Umiliani's more experimental side has gotten a lot of attention in recent years, a lot of the tracks here are in his jazzier, groovier mode – the sort you'd know from his famous 60s soundtrack work – with lots of organ, Fender Rhodes, moog, and other keyboards from Umiliani – and some great guest appearances that include saxes from Enzo Scoppa, trumpet from Cicci Santucci, Fender Rhodes from Enrio Pieranunzi, and even a bit of vocals from I Cantori Modern! The tracks here were all recorded by Piero on his own – some were used on soundtracks, some on sound library albums, and a number are previously unissued – and together, the whole thing features lots of rare work from this genius that we'd never heard before. Titles include "Rakto E L'Oroso Tema Moog", "Petra Tema Jazz", "L'Invasione Dei Folletti", "Le Cascate Di Iguacu", "C'En Una Fantasma Nel Mio Letto M68", "Risaie", "Millenni", "Grand Canyon", "Il Burattinaio M8 + M9", and "Non Mollare".

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian soundtrack/sound library reissue scene of the past decade or two – but instead lots of fresh tracks that really throw open the gates – with strong quality tracks that are awash in lots of groovy elements! Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title. Tracks include "Don Milani" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Cugine Mie" by Nico Fidenco, "Gideon" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Camorra" by Manuel De Sica, "Pensiero D'Amore" by Mario Migliardi, "Gisposta A Tutto" by Gianni Marchetti, "Mondo Di Notte Oggi" by Gianni Oddi Gianni Dell'Orso, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, and "Verso La Droga" by Sandro Brugnolini.

✨✧ VariousNuda – 21 Exciting Cuts From The Italian Sexy-Comedy Disco Scene 1975 to 1981 ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles here are mostly in the rhythms – as lots of the instrumentation follows in ways that reference early 70s Italian cop and crime – and, to a lesser extent, some of the mod and bossa styles of the late 60s – all handled by the cream of the crop of the Italian film world, mostly with an instrumental approach! The set list is great, and really brings together the best examples of the genres, and avoids some of the cheesy, clunky tunes that sometimes got in the way on larger soundtracks – which makes for a cool compilation that really packs one hell of a punch! Titles include "La Settimana Bianca" and "Classe Mista" by Gianni Ferrio, "Taxi Girl" by Pulsar Music Ltd, "Scusi Lei E Normale" by Franco Micalizzi, "La Sposina" by Nico Fidenco, "Sette Ragazze Di Classe" by Fabio Frizzi, "L'Insegnante Balla Con Tutta La Classe" by Walter Rizzati, "La Liceale" by Vittorio Pezzola, "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Grazi Nonna" by Enrico Simonetti, and "L'Infermiera Di Mio Padre" by Giacomo Dell'Orso.

Stunning rare work from Alessandro Alessandroni – a soundtrack talent who first flourished in the 60s, but really hit his stride in the sound library scene of the 70s! Alessandroni has a great way here of mixing the warm and the sweet, the funky and the melodic – tunes that are short and simple, but always pretty darn groovy – with a sweet, slinky style that's a great extension of the funkier modes of both French and Italian cinema at the start of the 70s – well-placed basslines that really set the score, peppered with just the right bits on guitar or keyboards – and never overdone, so that the grooves are spacious enough to really let you appreciate all the right touches! Titles include "Watergate", "Mitzi", "Sunny Coast", "Pure Nature", "Blue Waves", "Young America", "High Class", "Meadows", and "Life Tree". LP, Vinyl record album

Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great sound library albums of the time, the music is way more than conventional – as guitar, organ, bass, and drums are arranged, recorded, and produced in very unusual ways – with a really open ear towards the fuller, larger sound – which includes great effects and other elements along the way! The whole thing's very groovy – kind of mid 60s Italian mod soundtrack styles meeting the psychedelic generation – and titles include "Kissing", "Villa Polanski", "Sharon Tate", "Hip Now", "Lovable", "Petting", "Under Funeral", and "Malattia".

Always-great 70s music from Stelvio Cipriani – the Italian soundtrack maestro who got his start a bit later than some of his contemporaries, but followed through with a range of amazing sounds in the decade! This single brings together two of the best tracks from the film Bersaglio Altezza Uomo – great late 70s funk from Cipriani, with lots of riffing guitar and moogy keyboards on the title – which has a way of sounding spacey, yet still keeping in the groove! "Caccia Mortale" has almost a clubby vibe at the start – strong bassline and tight snare – but the keyboards get all moogy again, and really add a lot of rich energy to the tune – a great extension of the 70s keyboard modes that made Cipriani one of the soundtrack giants of the decade! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Modern jazz from the Italian scene of the 60s – all of it recorded for film and soundtrack use, and almost none of is released before! The music here shows not just the fantastic advances in film scoring in the 60s, but also the overlooked growth of jazz in Italy at the same time too – shifts in sounds and styles that continue to amaze us – even if most of the commercial recordings never got much global circulation at the time! And these sounds are even more unusual and special than those – recorded by names that you'd recognize as both musicians and composers – and mostly presented in small combo modes that resonate strongly with rare Italian jazz records of the period. Titles include "Tempo Di Charlston" by Enrico Simonetti, "I Nostri Mariti" by Armando Trovajoli, "Amarsi Male" by Silvano Spadaccino, "Un'Ora Per Vivere" by Nino Tassone, "Desideri D'Estate" by Gino Peguri, "La Curruzione" by Giovanni Fusco, "La Donna E Una Cosa Meravigliosa" by Perio Piccioni, "La Ragazzola" by Romano Mussolini, and "Una Jena In Cassaforte" by Gianfranco E Gian Piero Reverberi.

Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Freaky funk from the Italian scene – exactly the kind of grooves that will open your ears if you think that funky sounds can only come from American soul bands or jazz musicians! The music here is filled with heavy drums, tight basslines, and lots of other groovy instrumental touches – offbeat keyboards, riffing guitars, and other instrumentation that's sometimes given these odd psychedelic touches by the studio maestros who were putting together the cuts at the time – some of which were used in obscure soundtracks, and a number of which appear here for the first time ever! This isn't the overly-familiar film music territory of other collections – and instead, most of this music is completely fresh – even for the longtime collector – presented in a great package that includes the cuts "Anastasia Mio Fratello" by Piero Piccioni, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, "La Mano Lunga Del Padrino" by Silvano D'Auria, "L'Arbitro" by Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis, "La Liceale Nella Classe Dei Ripetenti" by Gianni Ferrio, "L'Altro Dio" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Giovane Clan" by Sandro Brugnolini, "La Profonda Luce Dei Sensi" by SEverino Gazzelloni, and "Calamo" by Claudio Tallino.

A great entry in this very groovy series – one that shifts the title a bit from previous volumes, and which also moves the music a bit too – but all while staying pretty darn funky! The set's got much more of a 70s soundtrack vibe than some of the other entries – loads of great keyboards, heavy basslines, riffing guitar, and other elements that are often used in ways that remind us of the bigger blacksploitation and crime/cop work of the decade – but cooler, hipper, and a lot more obscure!

✨✧ Two Banks Of FourCity Watching Remixes ... LP
Sirkus Recordings (UK), 2001. Very Good+ 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Remixes of tracks from the City Watching album by Two Banks Of Four – some by the group themselves, some by other artists! The album's got a feel that's a bit more electric than much of the original work – taking the group's righteously soulful sound and pumping it up a bit more for the dancefloor, while still retaining most of the best elements of the tunes. Titles include "Last Dance (Attica Blues rmx)", "Skylines Over Rooftops (Maas From Soma rmx)", "Theme De La Tete (Anjali rmx)", "Afro Blue (Derrick Carter rmx)", "Street Lullaby (Four Tet rmx)", and "Time Flies (Ski rmx)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)
