Angelo Francesco Lavagnino & Piero UmilianiScusi Lei Conosce Il Sesso (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... $20.99 29.99
A really groovy soundtrack for a late 60s Italian film of the "mondo" variety – one whose title literally translates as "Excuse Me, Do You Like Sex?" The music comes from the sublime pairing of Piero Umiliani and Angelo Francesco Lavagnino – both well-traveled Italian film composers, who seem to each be pulling out the grooviest sides of their talents here – using bossa rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, playful melodies, and some occasional weird instrumentation – all in shifting ways that really match the changing settings of the film! Umiliani gives us some of his especially great organ lines – the kinds you'll recognize from better-known soundtracks of the period – and the CD features a whopping 23 tracks in all, almost all of them pretty darn groovy!

Helen Merrill & Piero UmilianiParole E Musica ... CD
RCA (France), 1961. Used ... $11.99
A strange and obscure session that has the cool jazz vocals of American singer Helen Merrill backed by a small Italian combo led by soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a wonderful mix that really makes the album an unusual one for Helen! The music was originally recorded for a TV program in Italy, and each track is preceded by an Italian voice, reciting Italian versions of the lyrics over spare musical backing – then Merrill's voice comes in with a bigger jazz group, singing each track in English – a very nice level of presentation! And although the whole thing sounds crazy, it actually works well – and gives the album a compelling edge and kind of a sexy late-night quality – with great instrumentation that includes flute from Gino Marinacci and guitar from Enzo Grillini. Tracks include "Solitude", "Everything Happens To Me", "Night & Day", "Why Don't You Do Right", and "Willow Weep For Me". CD

Moggi (Piero Umiliani)Double Face ... LP
Overdrive (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The cover here looks a bit 80s, but the sound of half the record is much more rich and organic – and maybe more in the kind of mode you'd know from the film score work of Piero Umiliani – who's working here under his Moggi pseudonym! Side one is orchestral – and most tracks have a standout instrument in the lead – sometimes acoustic piano, sometimes a trumpet – mixed with larger orchestrations that often have this great languid feel – almost like the aftermath of a sex-drenched steamy summer afternoon – but Italian-style, of course! Side two features the same tunes, but done completely electronically – with all these cool analogue elements that really live up to Umiliani's work in that realm – but again, with slinky sexy modes that are totally great. Titles include "Fata Morgana", 'Planetario", "Ricorrenza", "La Ballata Del Mare Salato", and "Nel Giardino Fantastico" – each done in an orchestral and electronic version! LP, Vinyl record album

Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99 44.99
A really wonderful record from sound library wizard Piero Umiliani, and one that really takes its title seriously – as most of the tracks here have a very news-worthy sort of vibe! There's a fair bit of keyboards and electronics in the set – and Umiliani moves between numbers that seem to replicate the flow of data feeding into the newsroom or the sound of the presses printing up a paper – to other more melodic numbers that would be perfect as the theme for a late-breaking special alert! Instrumentation includes Fender Rhodes, Hammond, moog, and more – on titles that include "Telescriventi", "Prima Pagina", "Scoop", "Ultimissime", "Elzeviro", "Fatto Di Cronaca", "Rotativa", "Top Secret", and "Dossier".

Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A second sound library trip to Africa by Italian sound library maestro Piero Umiliani – and one that's even groovier than the first! The music here follows a similar pattern – mixing elements of 70s sound library rhythms with some older exotic modes – a blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation that's really wonderful, and which feels a lot like some of the sexier 70s Italian soundtracks that were set in more exotic locales! There's plenty of percussion on the record, used in all these wonderful ways, and combined with flute, tenor sax, and other musical elements – served up on tunes that include "Oasi", "Tribalismo", "Flauto Africano", "Ultimo Stregone", "Riscossa", "Nel Villagiio", "Nuove Realta", and "Piffero Africano".

Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD ... $28.99 32.99
Sweetly funky and very slinky – this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like the contemporaneous work by the great Italian Fender Rhodes combo Crossfire – but it's also filled with a spacey madness that could only come from the pen of Umiliani! One of the best of the recent Easy Tempo reissues – and very nicely put together, with a consistent sound throughout! Titles include "The Body", "Tidal Stream", "Chaser", "White Sand", "In The End", "Free Life", "Stream", and "Dusken". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero UmilianiIl Mondo Dei Romani (orange colored vinyl) ... LP
WRWTFWW (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A very cool soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – done during a period of great electronic exploration! The record is credited to "Piero Umiliani & I Suoi Oscillatori" – an instrument you can definitely hear at work here – as Piero uses lots of cool keyboard lines with a very moogy feel, and some sweet beats from a very early version of a drum machine! The music ranges from moody to groovy – and the whole thing has a sound that's way more future-feeling than you'd ever guess from the image on the cover – a bit like Umiliani's Musica Elettronica record, but more tuneful overall. Titles include "Veni Vidi Vici", "Roma Amor", "Bucolica", "Bucina", "Neronis Cetra", and "Miles Gloriosus". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo E La Citta (Man & The City) ... LP
Liuto/Dialogo (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 34.99
A hip set of swinging urban tunes – recorded by Piero Umiliani in 1976, in a mode that recalls American "urban" jazz tributes from the 50s and 60s – especially some of the albums that were dedicated to New York! Yet the difference here is that he session's got a bit of a 70s sound – with some slight electric instrumentation, and some backings that feel a bit like they were lifted from a Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – an influence that's more than ok in our book! The work is quite different than some of Umiliani's mad 60s work – but no less great, and a welcome addition to his rich catalog of work. The record is definitely one of Piero's jazziest from the 70s – thanks to work from Italian legends who include Oscar Valdambrini, Bruno Tommaso, and Dino Piano – on titles that include "Citta Amica", "Citta Frenetica", "Viadotti", "Piazza Di Siena", "L'Uomo E La Citta", "Rete Urbana", "Suoni Della Citta", and "Centrali Termiche".

Four Flies (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from a very electric man – the mighty Piero Umiliani, an Italian composer who first rose to fame for a set of groundbreaking film scores in the 60s – then moved into even more experimental sound library work in the following decade! This set has Piero working in all sorts of cool electronic styles – never too outside or avant, but definitely in the darker side of his spectrum – although almost always with that playful sense of a tune that made his 60s music such a delight! The range of instruments varies – Umiliani clearly had a studio that was full of brand-new, top-shelf technologies – and titles are mostly from the mid 70s, with a few later cuts from 1983. Tunes include "Danza Magica", "Soundmaker Blues", "Fruitori", "Batticuore", "Sinistro Carillon", "Dolomiti", "Apocolaisse Atomica", "Description", "Lavorazione A Mare", and "Elettrone". CD

Piero UmilianiLa Ragazza Dalla Pelle Di Luna (with bonus CD) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... $28.99 32.98
Amazing work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – a perfect soundtrack to show the warmer sound of his talents, which are sometimes eclipsed by his weirder electronic modes! The soundtrack's from an erotic film starring sex-goddess Zeudi Araya, but despite the kinky origins of the material, the music's actually got a lot more sophistication than you'd expect – and the score feels more like a Morricone cerebral one than a cheesy sexy one – with dreamy wordless vocals floating around in the mix, and these sweet-stepping basslines that are especially wonderful – setting a slow funk current at great moments, in that Euro easy way of blending some hip bass with warmer strings and other instrumental touches. There's some haunting piano at points, too – and Umiliani has a great way of making the music sound emotive, but never sappy at all. Titles include "Pelle Di Luna", "Addio All'Isola Felice", "L'Ultima Spiaggia", "Seyga Seyga", "Nostalgia Dell'Isola", and "Tanto Tempo Fa". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic music from the great Piero Umiliani – one of Italy's greatest soundtrack composers, and definitely at the top of his game here! The music was recorded right around the same time as Umiliani's legendary work for Sweden Heaven & Hell – and there's a similar mix of styles going on here – a strong leadoff track with female vocals, groovy swingers with a nice degree of jazz, some excellent use of organ, and some really cool mellower numbers that have this subtle sonic power that's really wonderful – often again dosed with some nice use of organ! The score features 16 tracks in all – with subtitles that really give you an idea of the groove – including "pop jazz", "bossa", "psychedelic suspense", "samba jazz", and "jazz pour l'action".

Percussion and special effects – a really wonderful blend, especially in the hands of Italian maestro Piero Umiliani! The album's one of Piero's more experimental and electronic outings – done for the Liuto sound library label, with lots of cool production techniques that make the drums and percussion nice and echoey, and just ripe for layers of keyboards and electronics, too! And although the record is experimental, it's often quite groovy – in the best Umiliani manner, with a few funky passages stepping out of space as well – in a blend of acoustic, electric, and cosmic that reminds us of some of the sci-fi soundtrack work of Peter Thomas. Titles include "Ritmi In swing", "Timbales", "Protesta Giovanile", "Bongos In Suspense", "Dinimica In Beat", "Dinemica In Tensione", "Organo In Suspense", "Fascia Metallica", "Battimenti", and "Esplosioni".

Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 24.99
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia Inferno E Paradiso) – and shares many of the themes that went onto that record, complete with romping funky rhythms, sweet jazzy Hammond lines, and mod fuzzy guitar! Many numbers are upbeat groovers, without any of the longform indulgence you'd expect from psychedelia – and Umiliani draws on his jazz background to allow just the right space for solo instruments to take the lead in the instrumental setting. Titles include "Birra Vermouth E Gin", "Contestazione", "Hippies", "Nel Cosmo", "Stoccolma My Dear", "Notte Di Mezza Estate", and "Viva La Sauna Svedese" – a version of the classic "Mah Na Mah Na".

Piero UmilianiQuando La Coppia Scoppia ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... $19.99 28.98
An early 80s soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – but one that seems to echo some styles from deeper in his past, including some of of the jazz elements he used in his early days – and some of the more unusual sonic textures he created for his sound library projects in the 70s! The film's a comedy, but as usual with Umiliani, the music is way more than you might expect – sometimes light and melodic, other times served up with unusual sonic elements – maybe more in the warmer side of the spectrum than the cold, but always with a knowledge of darkness at all the right points. The main theme gets some strong renditions in a few different ways – and there's also a great instrumental titled "Ultimissime", which has great Fender Rhodes – and the killer "Samba Mah Na", which uses Brazilian percussion and brassy horns to rework Umiliani's classic "Mah Na Mah Na" theme! A few tracks even get a bit funky – and the CD features 20 tracks from the film, plus notes in Italian and English. CD

Don't think "romance" – at least not in the sleepy sort of American romance music from the 60s – and think "groovy" instead, and maybe a bit of "sexy" too – as these tunes are pure cinematic gems from Italian composer Piero Umiliani! Like the other volume in this series, this set features some unreleased material, and new remastering for all the cuts – but the best thing is the way that all these tracks from different films work together so wonderfully – with sweet bossa rhythms, nice jazzy moments, and some of those moments of sonic genius that always made Umiliani way more than just a musician. 20 tracks in all – with work done for films that include Il Comandante, Tutto Il Bello Dell'Uomo, Io Tigro Tu Tigri Egli Tigra, La Soldatessa, Colpo Gobbo All'Italiano, Extraconiugale, and La Celestina.

Piero UmilianiSmog – Musiche Dalla Colonna Sonora Originale (180 gram vinyl plus bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Rearward (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... $29.99 34.99
An early jazzy soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – made even better by some key work from Chet Baker on trumpet and Helen Merrill on vocals! The set was done at a time when both artists were spending some time in Italy – shaping the scene with their presence, and really standing out on a handful of rare recordings like this one – quite different than their American material of a few years before! Baker is especially striking – with lead solos that have a great sense of compression, and a depth of soul that really move beyond the Pacific Jazz recordings. And Merrill is wonderful, too – with that special flavor she only ever seemed to open up when she went overseas – and got to move into more unusual settings. But the real star is Umiliani throughout – balancing modern impulses with late night jazz in a way that really points the way towards his later scores in the 60s – but which is already nearly perfect here! Titles include "Smog" (done in instrumental and vocal versions by Baker and Merrill), plus "Dawn", "Tensione", "Tops", "California In The Summer", "Hollywood Tonight", "Bowling", and "Twilight At Los Angeles".

Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 39.99
A gem of a record from the great Piero Umiliani – and maybe one of his funkiest, grooviest projects ever! The set is more sound library funk than soundtrack – and features some very strong keyboard work in the lead on most track – including Fender Rhodes, moog, Hammond, and even Lowrey organ! Other instrumentation is nice and spare – lots of tight and slight rhythms – which lets the keyboards carry equal parts of the groove and the melody, in a really wonderful style! Players on the session include Umiliani on moog and Fender Rhodes, Oscar Valdambrini on trumpet, Giovanni Tommaso on bass, Franco D'Andrea on piano, Dino Piana on trombone, Antonello Vannucchi on Hammond, and Marcello Boschi on flute. The whole thing's wonderful – a deep deep treasure all the way through – and tracks include "Lady Magnolia", "Open Space", "Goodmorning Sun", "Railroad", "Safari Club", "Free Dimension", "Truck Driver", and "Music On The Road".

Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great set of keyboard work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – and one that's definitely heavy on the Fender Rhodes promised in the title! Piero first started out with a more jazz-based sound in the 60s, and that definitely returns here – but updated nicely with a sweet set of 70s electric keys – used here in ways that move between funky jazz, gentler bossa numbers, and a whole range of other styles that fit very nicely on the groovier side of the sound library spectrum! As with most of Umiliani's music during the decade, this album wasn't commercially released at all – just done as a sound library session under the name of Rovi – but pure Piero all the way through, on titles that include "Medium Cool", "Honey Moon", "Jolly", "Pianofender Blues", "Proposal", "Good Job", "Dark Blues", and "Atmosphere".

The approach is great – kind of an extension of the soundtrack styles that Umiliani did in the 60s, with a 70s-styled take on exotica – maybe a bit like the famous EMI Studio 2 albums from Mandingo. There's some great jazz players in the lineup too – including flute work from Gino Marianacci, whose tone is tremendous – and titles include "Savana", "Green Dawn", "Sortilege", "Echoes", "Folk Tune", "Drums Suspense", "Africa To-Day", and "Rhythmical Stress".

There's some great jazz players in the lineup too – including flute work from Gino Marianacci, whose tone is tremendous – and titles include "Savana", "Green Dawn", "Sortilege", "Echoes", "Folk Tune", "Drums Suspense", "Africa To-Day", and "Rhythmical Stress".

✨✧ Piero UmilianiL'Uomo E La Citta (Man & The City) ... CD
Liuto/Dialogo (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hip set of swinging urban tunes – recorded by Piero Umiliani in 1976, in a mode that recalls American "urban" jazz tributes from the 50s and 60s – especially some of the albums that were dedicated to New York! Yet the difference here is that he session's got a bit of a 70s sound – with some slight electric instrumentation, and some backings that feel a bit like they were lifted from a Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – an influence that's more than ok in our book! The work is quite different than some of Umiliani's mad 60s work – but no less great, and a welcome addition to his rich catalog of work. The record is definitely one of Piero's jazziest from the 70s – thanks to work from Italian legends who include Oscar Valdambrini, Bruno Tommaso, and Dino Piano – on titles that include "Citta Amica", "Citta Frenetica", "Viadotti", "Piazza Di Siena", "L'Uomo E La Citta", "Rete Urbana", "Suoni Della Citta", and "Centrali Termiche".

Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mystical trip through the south seas – courtesy of Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani, working here in a rare sound library setting! The tracks are moody and ethereal – with lots of spare percussion, and some dreamy island-type touches – like floating voices, isolated strings, and even a bit of moog, used to create some nice 70s exotica! There's one or two tracks that get harder-hitting, taking the percussion over the top with some snapping grooves – but most are in a 70s update of older exotica styles, including some of those that Piero might have used on some of his 60s soundtracks! Titles include "Tamburi Di Guerra", "Esorcismi", "Plenilunio", "Erbe Magiche", "Benvenuti All'Isola", "Canoe", "Sotto Le Palme", and "Pellegrinaggio Al Totem". CD

Omicron/Dialogo (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of keyboard work from the legendary Piero Umiliani – and one that's definitely heavy on the Fender Rhodes promised in the title! Piero first started out with a more jazz-based sound in the 60s, and that definitely returns here – but updated nicely with a sweet set of 70s electric keys – used here in ways that move between funky jazz, gentler bossa numbers, and a whole range of other styles that fit very nicely on the groovier side of the sound library spectrum! As with most of Umiliani's music during the decade, this album wasn't commercially released at all – just done as a sound library session under the name of Rovi – but pure Piero all the way through, on titles that include "Medium Cool", "Honey Moon", "Jolly", "Pianofender Blues", "Proposal", "Good Job", "Dark Blues", and "Atmosphere".

✨✧ Piero Umiliani5 Bambole Per La Luna D'Agosto (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines to set the rhythms, and scatting lyrics from I Cantori Moderni – a group who make the act of counting to 5 sound incredibly cool! The feel is quite similar to Umiliani's sublime Sweden Heaven & Hell soundtrack (and at one point, you even can hear the guy with the funny voice from "Mah Na Mah Na") – and the music is exactly the kind of wonderful stuff that first got us digging Italian film scores so many years ago. Titles include a few versions of the main theme, plus "Luna Di Piero Agosto", "Bambola Omicida", "Interludio Azzurro", "Cinque Bambole", and "Danza Jazz Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia Inferno E Paradiso) – and shares many of the themes that went onto that record, complete with romping funky rhythms, sweet jazzy Hammond lines, and mod fuzzy guitar! Many numbers are upbeat groovers, without any of the longform indulgence you'd expect from psychedelia – and Umiliani draws on his jazz background to allow just the right space for solo instruments to take the lead in the instrumental setting. Titles include "Birra Vermouth E Gin", "Contestazione", "Hippies", "Nel Cosmo", "Stoccolma My Dear", "Notte Di Mezza Estate", and "Viva La Sauna Svedese" – a version of the classic "Mah Na Mah Na".

✨✧ Piero UmilianiSweden – Heaven & Hell (Svezia – Inferno E Paradiso) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – sounds initially written for a film that was an international "sexpose" of daily life in Sweden – but which have grown to even greater fame on their own over the years – thanks to the talent of the maestro! The music here is awash in groovy elements – lots of sweet Hammond organ lines, mod basslines, and some especially cool wordless vocals from the choir of Alessandro Alessandroni – scatting away in a great way alongside the instruments, and bringing an added level of breathy eroticism to the whole thing! This special LP version recreates the original Omicron release of the record – with titles that include the two lyrical tracks "You Tried To Warn Me" and "Sleep Now Little One", sung by Lydia McDonald – plus the tracks "Topless Party", "Eva Svedense", "Essere Donna", "La Signora Cameriera", "FotoModelle", and "Le Ragazze Dell'Archipellago". (Note, does not contain the track "Mah Na Mah Na", which is on other versions of the soundtrack – but it appears on the "partner" reissue of Umiliani's Psichedelica from Schema, under the title "Viva La Sauna Svedese".)

Stunning sound library material from Braen's Machine – one of the coolest, grooviest, and most obscure acts that were part of this underground Italian scene in the 70s! Quarta Pagina follows into even more trippier territory than the group's famous Underground album – a wild blend of psychedelic elements with hip soundtrack styles – the kinds of aspects that Piero Umiliani and Alessandro Alessandroni brought to the group, but with an even weirder feel. Track are all nice and compact – no overindulgent jams, but there's still a wonderful range of sounds in the short tunes – and most numbers are vocals, filled with guitars, keyboards, and loads of odd elements – but there also seems to be an Edda Dell'Orso-like singer in a few spots too. Titles include "Frode", "Addescamento", "Rimorso", "Il Covo", "La Vittima", and "Nel Penitenziario". LP, Vinyl record album

Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 32.99
Maybe the coolest and grooviest music we've heard from the obscure Braen's Machine sound library project from early 70s Italy – a record that's less tripped out than its predecessors, and instead has this great style that's heavy on bossa elements and funky jazz! The vibe's a bit like the best Italian soundtracks of the period – especially work by Morricone or Trovajoli – and the group still apparently features contributions from Alessandro Alessandroni, working with Piero Umiliani – which gives the whole thing a very strong soundtrack pedigree! Instrumentation includes some mighty nice keyboards – both Hammond and electric piano – and lots of great production on familiar instruments, which can give things like a snare drum a very odd crackle, or a flute this weirdly spacious sound. Titles include "Movimento", "Dinimica", "Gara", "Passeggiata", "Aspetti Grotteschi", "Esercizi Ginnici", "Ritmica Sportiva", and "Rinuncia". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kid LocoItalian Job ... CD
Temposphere (Italy), 2008. New Copy ... $12.99
The first set we've seen from Kid Loco in awhile – and a nice mix of new music and older sounds from Italian film scores! The album's very nicely placed on the Temposphere arm of Easy Tempo – as it features Loco remixes both of newer music from the former label, and some old soundtracks from the latter – topped off with one or two Loco tracks of his own! The whole thing's somewhat understated – never too gimmicky, beat-heavy, or over the top – and although the music is from a range of different sources, the sound is more than unified enough to make the album feel like a Kid Loco record all the way through. Titles include "Crepuscolo Sul Mare" and "La Seduzione (2007 version)" by Kid Loco, "Sessomatto (Kid Loco sexamental mix)" by Armando Trovajoli, "Magic (new experience mix)" by Piero Piccioni, "Lady Magnolia (Belleville B-Boy mix)" by Piero Umiliani, "Fearing Much (Kid Loco's AM session mix)" by Stefano Torossi, "Per Il Disco Che Piu Amo (Kid Loco viva la Rockola mix)" by I Maniaci Dei Dischi, and "Clapsoy (Cumbia Loco mix)" by Gak Sato.

There's a number of cuts on here that feel like they were lifted from lost CTI sessions of the 70s, thanks to warm keyboards and spare, subtle beats – while others mix together mod 60s styles, and even bits of Latin and Brazilian influences!

One of the weirdest Italian soundtracks you're ever likely to hear – mad music from the 70s, originally written for a demonic religious performance! Stefano Marcucci has roots in the psych scene, but also recorded the set in the Sound Workshop of Piero Umiliani – and the work has just the sort of mix of fuzz and electronics you'd expect from that pedigree – some really way out analogue electronic elements at times, mixed with more familiar song structures and some chorus vocals – often set to a psych funk groove that reminds us of some of the grooviest French arrangers at the end of the 60s, such as Michel Colombier and Jean Claude Vannier. The chorus vocals are especially offbeat – as they sound like they're going to be sweet, but feel more satanic in the end – and titles include "Pange Lingua", "Inferno", "Coro Dei Penitenti", "Allejua", "Rendete Grazi", "Gli Occhi Di Tutti", and "Roma Nobilis".

However, past the cheesy packaging – or maybe in addition to it, depending on your perspective – this is a killer set of bossa-tinged groovers from Italy, mostly pulled from rare soundtracks of the 60s, featuring a beautiful selection of tunes that may not be the most "autentico" when it comes to the sound, but which are filled to the brim with the light dreamy spirit of the bossa, a mixture of sad and playful instrumentation that's a delight throughout! There's some great organ and guitar on the set – and plenty of the percussion that makes a bossa number great – and titles include "Mexican Lounge" by Ennio Morricone, "Parangua" by Luis Bacalov, "Diva Samba (new edit)" by Armando Trovajoli, "Rhumba Shake" by Armando Trovajoli, "Belinda May" by Ennio Morricone, "Alla Serenita" by Ennio Morricone, "L'Amica" by Luis Bacalov, "Bossa Beat" by Piero Piccioni, "L'Arcangelo (new edit)" by Piero Umiliani, and "Sambinha" by Piero Piccioni.
