Riz OrtolaniGege Bellavita ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
A catchy little soundtrack for this late 70s Italian sex spoof – a film in which the lead character's wife discovers his philandering, then decides to pimp him out to the neighbors! The score begins with a jaunty vocal tune – "Nun Me Scuccia" – which is then echoed in a few other tracks, and mixed with the kind of lighter, playful melodies that were more common in Italian comedies during the period – still mostly with acoustic instrumentation, but also touched with occasional keyboard or guitar lines. The vocal track starts and ends the score – and the set features ten more instrumental numbers in between! CD

Riz OrtolaniNon Si Sevizia Un Paperino (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... $34.99
Dark genius from Italian composer Riz Ortolani – very spooky sounds written for a film whose English language translation is "Don't Torture A Duckling"! Non Si Sevizia Un Paperino has these amazing string passages that really creep us out – played with razor-sharpness and echoey quality on the best cuts, in an almost Psycho-like style that's really wonderful! Mellower cuts on the soundtrack have a nicely contrasting sweeter approach, with a few warm 70s-styled melodies – and the score is represented by 12 titles from the original album, including "Quei Giorni Insieme A Te", which features vocals by Omella Vanoni.

Riz OrtolaniUna Ragione Per Vivere E Una Per Morire/La Notte Dei Serpentia ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1970/1972. Used ... $13.99
A pair of great soundtracks from Riz Ortolani – back to back on a single CD! Una Ragione Per Vivere E Una Per Morire is crafted with a slightly different feel than usual for the time – almost more straight dramatic than the some of the seedier Italian western sounds of the period, with shimmering orchestral passages that hang back nicely – never too dramatic, and kind of sweeping gently over the space of the plains! It's one without too much majesty, and Ortolani's got little of his whimsy from the comedic years here, too – and titles include "Eroicamente Insieme", "Il Forte", "La Festa", "Attesa", "Valzer Messicano", ""La Grande Ombra Della Morte", "Anzione Bellica" and more. La Notte Dei Serpenti definitely has a strong western feel at points, and a few Mexican touches too – all mixed in with some more sensitive numbers that usually have a bit of guitar in the lead, hanging out nicely in echoey space! The CD features 18 numbers from that film, mostly short – and the set is put together with the usual high Digitmovies standards. CD

Riz OrtolaniUna Sull' Altra ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1969. Used ... $13.99
A groovy little gem from Riz Ortolani! The soundtrack's got an excellent late 60s feel – with tracks that mix electric bass with sitar, flute, organ, and some fuller jazzy arrangements. There's a strong jazz component running through the mix – taking the score past some of the easier campier moments, and giving it a solid overall sound that will keep you coming back to it again and again. Titles include "Sitar In Blues", "Lombard Street", "St Francisco Railways", "St Quentin", "Un Sull Altra", and "Susan & Jane". CD

Riz Ortolani/Johnny Mathis/The AnimalsBiggest Bundle Of Them All ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
The bulk of this one's handled by Riz – in a mixture of styles that runs from 60s groovy to fake Italian, in keeping with the mob comedy theme of the film. The work's some of his grooviest from the time – and it does have some nice jazzy touches, plus bits of electric guitar to soup things up. Johnny Mathis sings the cut "Most Of All There's You", which is actually a pretty nice number – and the vocal version of "The Biggest Bundle Of Them" all is a great little number by The Animals that ranks with some of their nicest work at the time. Other tracks include "In The Night Club", "Petrol Station Robbery", "Dance On The Terrace", "Celli's Theme", and "The Meeting Of The Master Minds". LP, Vinyl record album

Riz Ortolani/New Vaudeville Band/The SpectrumBliss Of Mrs Blossom ... LP
RCA, 1968. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The film's a very strange comedy starring Shirley MacLaine, and the soundtrack's pretty wild too! Most tracks are groovy 60s tunes with a mix of easy styles, and the album's also got a few nice vocal numbers that space things out nicely – and overall, the soundtrack's a real mix of styles that really keeps things entertaining! Jack Jones sings "The Way That I Live", The Spectrum sing "Let's Live For Love", Shirley sings the main title theme, and The New Vaudeville Band perform "I Think I'm Beginning To Fall In Love". Instrumental tunes include the Hammond-heavy "Rock Bottom", plus "I'd Rather Lead A Band", "Mr Blossom Goes Bust", "The Way That I Live", and "Mexican Merengue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniCannibal Holocaust (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, grooviest soundtracks we've ever heard from Riz Ortolani – an artist who did bigger, more mainstream film scores in the 60s – but who really developed a more electric vibe in the 70s! This soundtrack has Riz working at the top of his powers – bringing in keyboards and guitars to really spice things up, and make for a few key funky moments – but also still handling some larger charts with the professional flair he always brought to his music – showing that the best horror work of this time still came from composers who had deeper skills than just a few slick keyboard lines. Titles include "Love With Fun", "Massacre Of The Troupe", "Cameraman's Recreation", "Adulteress' Punishment", "Savage Rite", and "Drinking Coco". CD version has a huge amount of bonus tracks – 10 more tunes added to the original soundtrack! CD

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniI Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072/La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1981/1983. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Riz Ortolani is best known for his big scores of the 60s – but here, the maestro turns in two early 80s soundtracks – one sci-fi, one horror – both with a very distinct vibe! First up is I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072, a soundtrack that has some "future" elements in its use of 80s keyboards, but which also balances things with warmer currents – with a result that's almost like the way that the sound library scene was changing right at the start of the 80s – particularly in the way that KPM or DeWolfe were introducing electric elements amidst more familiar instrumentation. In other words, the set's not a straight keyboard/guitar score, as in the Goblin generation – but certainly nods to that shift. La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco is much more varied – a short score, but with tunes that move between disco groovers, to creepy lullabies, to some very dark-toned moments – all in a relatively short space! 2CD set features 23 tracks in all – including two bonus tracks from the 45rpm single for I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072.

United Artists, 1967. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Although this one's got a striking picture of Africa on the front cover, a pretty captivating title, and an Italian name in the composer credits, it's actually a pretty straight soundtrack – mostly strings and orchestral passages, handled in the dramatic mode that Ortolani used often on some of his American soundtracks of the 60s. Titles include the vocal number "Who Can Say", sung by Jimmy Roselli – plus the tracks "Cape Town", "Il Nono Giorno", "Goodbye Mr Turnbull", "La Decimazione", and "Verso La Liberta".

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniUn Caso Di Coscienza/Non Commettere Atti Impuri ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two fantastic little soundtracks – both from the groovier side of the Riz Ortolani spectrum! Un Caso Di Coscienza has plenty of great organ lines – upbeat on the mod swingers, moodier and dripping with colors on the mellower tracks – always used with these unusual tones and weird phrasing that really keeps things interesting – and maybe even puts the soundtrack in Piero Piccioni territory! Two tracks feature lyrics by Il Supergrupo, the rest are instrumental – and the set features 16 great numbers from the score. Next up is Non Commettere Atti Impuri – done with a wider range of instrumentation, and a lot of tunes that are very upbeat and groovy – moving between organ, piano, keyboards, and guitar to create variations on the jaunty little rhythm of the theme – a cut that almost feels like some old A&M Records instrumental from the 60s, taken into hipper Italian territory on the 14 tracks included here.

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniUn Dramma Borghese ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual score from the great Riz Ortolani – one for a film about adolescent love, and which features this compelling blend of childlike themes and more erotic moments! The vibe's maybe a bit like a Stelvio Cipriani sex film of the period – but has more of the subtlety and complexity that Ortolani brought to his more serious work – with passages of gentle woodwinds balanced with nice use of electric harpsichord, and some other solo piano or violin. The end result is music that's not nearly as trashy as you might expect – and which really sets Riz apart from some of the other 70s Euro soundtrack composers. CD
