Riz Ortolani & Nino OlivieroMondo Cane (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sugar/Decca (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
One of the first big international soundtracks to come from the Italian scene in the 60s – the start of a great run that would continue through the decade, although maybe not with results as strongly as this! The score is for a strange documentary-like film (the title means "World Gone To The Dogs"), and most of the tunes are dramatic – with a sweeping orchestral feel that has a few light instrumental moments. The big fame of this one is that it contains the theme that went onto become the 60s vocal standard "More" – but in this version, it's kind of submerged, and taken at a much slower pace – a theme that appears here and there, but also mixed with other really lively numbers too – always shifting the mood, to match the different settings in the film. Titles include "Free Way", "Models In Blue", "Life Savers Girls", "The Last Flight", "Dog Heat", "Cargo Cult", and "Purgatory". New expanded version – features a whopping 36 tracks in all – way more than the original album! CD

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniAfrica Addio ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily 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 OrtolaniDay Of Anger ... LP
RCA, 1970. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great little western score from Riz Ortolani – a composer you might know from bigger films of the 60s, and a handful of especially nice action and comedy soundtracks too! Riz seems to be drawing on the latter a bit here – as he mixes the usual western elements with some occasional groovy touches that are mighty nice – offsetting the brooding quality of the Lee Van Cleef narrative with a mix of jazzy horns, electric guitar, and even these mod bottoms to some of the rhythms that are quite a surprise – and very welcome indeed! The cut "Fino All'Ultimo Colpo" is especially nice – kind of a slow-stepping romp that has a soulful power that's mighty nice – repeated three times alone in the main body of work. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniLa Ragazza Di Trieste ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool Riz Ortolani soundtrack for this obscure early 80s film that starred Ben Gazzara – music that's of much later vintage than some of Ortolani's classics, but still pretty great overall! There's a fair bit of keyboards in the mix, but they're still delivered with the warmth we've come to expect from Riz – mixed in with sexier strings, and some occasional moments that echo the darker tones of horror scoring, but in a really subtle way that never overloads the sweeter side of the music. A haunting piano line provides a few spookier touches – and the whole thing's packaged in the same great way as other excellent Avanz label titles from Japan! Tracks include "Cercando Nicole", "Sgomento", "Suicidio", "La Ragazza Di Trieste", "Allucinazioni", "Spiaggia Assolata", and "Esaltazione Dei Senzi". CD

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniSi Puo Essere Piu Bastardi Dell'Ispettore Cliff ... LP
Sugar/Four Flies (Italy), 1973. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic funky soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – quite different than some of his bigger hits of the 60s, and full of heavy basslines and lots of great drums! The style here is in the best cop/crime mode of the time – but has even more blacksploitation grit at the bottom than the usual Italian work of the period – with a rawness that really rivals some of the best funky scores by Americans like Johnny Pate or Don Julian – although overall, there's maybe an even higher funk quotient to this record than some of their classics! Take it from us – we're not ones to casually use terms like this – and we really mean it when we say that this rare Italian gem from 1973 might well have you putting aside your copies of Shaft, Superfly, and Black Caesar!

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniL'Invasione ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever penned by Italian maestro Riz Ortolani – done for a 1970 film in which Michel Piccoli finds his home invaded by a host of groovy students and hippies! The music is very much in line with what you'd expect from such a scene – lots of upbeat, fuzzy, trippy tunes that move from 60s mod into more psychedelic modes – while the kids party, make love, and butt heads with the middle aged man in the room! The whole thing is very groovy throughout – with a few nice love themes that are clearly for those moments when a loving couple disappears behind the doors of a bedroom – matched with plenty of others that keep the party going throughout. 20 tracks in all – served up in styles that include "psychedelic shake", "drugs", and "sensual mood". CD

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousTidbeats – Lots Of Forgotten Surplus Audio Tracks From The Vaults Of Cinevox Records ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing treasure for fans of Italian soundtrack music – the fresh discovery of rare material from the vaults of Cinevox Records – one of the most important Italian soundtrack labels of the 60s and 70s! All of the music here is previously unreleased – and runs from full songs to snippets, all laid out in this really beautiful way – so that the package is not only presenting some great grooves from Cinevox, but also tracing a history of Italian cinematic styles – moving back and forth from the 60s through the 70s, with a superb presentation that really has the music sounding tremendous in this setting! These aren't clunky discards, but really wonderful tunes – unused extra material from soundtrack giants who include Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, Riz Ortolani, Giorgio Gaslini, Piero Piccioni, Gianni Ferrio, Franco Bixio, Enrico Simonetti, and many others – laid out here in a limited package, with 161 titles in all.
