✨✧ Riz OrtolaniAfrica Addio ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

Riz OrtolaniNon Faccio La Guera – Faccio L'Amore ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked score from a time when Riz Ortolani was really making big waves on the international soundtrack scene – doing music both for films in his homeland and overseas – which may be why this gem of a record never issued at the time! The CAM label only put two tracks out as a 45rpm single, which makes the other 17 here a new discovery for the listener – a great suite of sounds that offers plenty of warm, wonderful variations on the theme – a number that has a slight current of sadness and sentiment, but never too much – and which is balanced out by a few cuts that groove in more of a mod 60s-styled way. CD features 19 tracks in all – handled with the usual care we love from Beat Records! CD

Riz OrtolaniNon Si Sevizia Un Paperino (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
AMS/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... About November 1, 2019 (delayed)
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. LP, Vinyl record album

Riz OrtolaniUna Ragione Per Vivere E Una Per Morire (180 gram pressing – with CD) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
A great early 70s western score by Riz Ortolani! 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! Ortolani's got little of his whimsy from his comedic years, but things are mostly straight – and maybe even handled with a bit more warmth than usual for a western. Titles include "Eroicamente Insieme", "Il Forte", "La Festa", "Attesa", "Valzer Messicano", "La Grande Ombra Della Morte", and "Anzione Bellica". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300 copies – on 180 gram vinyl – and includes the album on CD!)

Riz OrtolaniYellow Rolls Royce ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Although Riz certainly did some groovy work during the late 60s in Italy, this score's pretty straight stuff – mostly period tunes with a lush rich feel. The album does include the original version of "Forget Domani", which became a vocal hit for Sinatra. Other tunes include "Finale", "Going To Soriano", "Yellow Rolls Royce", "Eloise", and "Mae".

Riz Ortolani & Nino OlivieroMondo Cane ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
One of the biggest-selling United Artists albums of the 60s – and one of its first big successes in the European soundtrack market! 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. Titles include "Free Way", "Models In Blue", "Life Savers Girls", "The Last Flight", "Dog Heat", "Cargo Cult", and "Pergatory". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniAndrea Doria 74 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet 70s soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – done for a shark-themed thriller, and filled with all these cool moments that offer up a mix of watery modes in the music! Some tunes have strong electric harpsichord or organ lines upfront – used by Riz in ways that are sometimes spare, sometimes upbeat – and the larger orchestrations often have this kind of dark current in the back, almost like ripples moving through the deeper parts of the ocean – often with a hint of melancholy that really adds a lot to the music! About half the tunes are catchy, almost jazzy – and titles include "Ci Vediamo Al Bar", "Incontri Sul Ponte", "L'Oceano La Guardava", "Un Onda Nel Ricordo", and "Caccia Al Pescecane". CD features a total of 24 tracks in all – 14 more bonus cuts added to the original 10 track album! CD

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniGege Bellavita ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 OrtolaniPerversion Story (Una Sull' Altra) (limited colored vinyl) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniSi Puo Essere Piu Bastardi Dell'Ispettore Cliff (with bonus track) ... CD
Sugar/Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... 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! CD features the bonus track "Romance Anonimo" – plus 19 more tracks from the film. CD

✨✧ 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 OrtolaniFarewell Uncle Tom (Addio Zio Tom) ... LP
RCA/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A groovy little soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a set of tracks written for a controversial faux-documentary on slavery, done with better musical touches that are more in keeping with the early 70s release of the film! The movie came from the same producers as Mondo Cane – also scored by Ortolani – and the style here has the same mix of very scene-specific instrumentals that shift very much throughout the cores of the set. Some tunes are more serious, while others get a bit groovy – and one track features some electric harpsichord in a chunky, catchy little melody – and the album ends with a cool chase type theme that has vibes going fast over heavy beats and trumpet blasts! The set kicks off with the vocal number "Oh My Love", sung by Katyna Ranieri – and other titles include "Maple", "Mister Ling", "Miami", "Cadet's Waltz", "Mamie", and "Rito Di Mezzanotte".

Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The bikini beat is a great one here – no simple beach music classics, but a range of mod groovers from the classic years of the Italian soundtrack scene!
