Franco MicalizziDa Corleone A Brooklyn ... CD
Beat/Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
A Corleone in Brooklyn – what could be better? Yet this Brooklyn is a 70s one, and gets scored by Franco Micalizzi in a really great way – funky at times, with other cool Italian scoring elements at others – all given a slight late 70s twist in the instrumentation and production, but in ways that still avoid some of the disco cliches of other soundtracks of the period. The whole thing is still nicely overflowing in the best cop/crime modes that we love from Italian 70s work – the sorts of grooves that make that nation's funky soundtracks an equal match for Shaft or Superfly! 17 tracks in all – and very funky. CD
Also available Da Corleone A Brooklyn (180 gram pressing) ... LP 29.99

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!

Franco MicalizziItalia A Mano Armata ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
A driving Italian soundtrack from the height of the cop/crime years – done with really full arrangements by Franco Micalizzi, in a way that easily rivals some of the best American work of the genre in the 70s! Most of the orchestrations are quite bold – upbeat rhythms with basslines punching up the bottom, and horns overflowing on the top – all in a brashly brassy style that really fits the high level of action in the film! Other numbers get a bit more mellow, but not in a spooky, atonal way – more in a slightly sweet quality that almost has slight 70s erotic undertones. A few other tracks almost get clubby at points – mixing guitar, keyboards, and snapping rhythms into some great instrumental grooves that might have been right at home on the dancefloor in New York. Reissue features 24 tracks in all – including "Too Much Nosy", "Hard Falling", "The Child & The Sister", "A Dirty Trick", "The Criminal Gang", "Detecting The Boss", "Tiny Armed Suite", and "Damned Bricks".

Franco MicalizziLa Banda Del Gobbo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... $34.99 58.98
Funky 70s crime cinema sounds from Italy – done for giallo, police thriller and gore maestro Umberto Lenzi's La Banda Del Gobbo, by Franco Micalizzi – a frenetic, funky and action packed score that hardly lets up for a moment! We knew we were in for a treat from the second we put it on – with the crisp bass line, the chicken scratch guitar, and the spacey keys the floated in right at the start – and that's before the drums and horns even kicked in! Totally great stuff – reminiscent of sound library funk, full on 70s crime score grooviness, and proggy keys as an added bonus – a near perfect later 70s exploitation soundtrack! Includes 18 tracks in all LP, Vinyl record album

VariousNuda – 21 Exciting Cuts From The Italian Sexy-Comedy Disco Scene 1975 to 1981 ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99
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.

✨✧ VariousUnusual Sounds ... CD
Anthology, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The sounds here aren't that unusual at all – and in fact, they're mostly pretty darn groovy – a superb selection of sound library funk from the glory days of the European scene – collected here together in support of the book of the same name! In case you're new to the scene – the Euro sound library world of the 60s and 70s was a place where extremely creative musicians could come together and create their own sort of grooves without a worry for placement on the record charts – as most of these cuts were locked in the vaults, then licensed briefly for use on radio, TV, or commercials – which led to a few of these gems getting some famous, but anonymous play on classic cop or crime shows at the time. The compilation brings together some of the best examples of this scene – loads of cuts that have been our favorites over the years – a whopping 20 tracks that include "Half Forgotten Daydreams" by John Cameron, "Funky Fanfare" by Keith Mansfield, "Weeping Eelgrass" by Mladen Franko, "Mild Maniac" by Peter Patzer, "Dream Number Two" by Roland Hollinger, "Soft Wind" by Gary Pacific Orchestra, "Tropicola" by Stringtronics, "Survivor" by Klaus Weiss, "La Dimonstrazione" by Daniele Patucchi, "Feeling Tense" by Stefano Torossi, "Xenos Cosmos" by Janko Nilovic, "Night Breeze" by Franco Micalizzi, and "Fancy Good" by Electric Machine.
