We are very happy to release, for the first time on vinyl, the soundtrack to one of Italy’s most known and loved comedies of all time: ‘BIANCO, ROSSO E VERDONE’.
Written, directed and starred by CARLO VERDONE and produced by SERGIO LEONE, ‘BIANCO ROSSO E VERDONE’ was released in 1981 and instantly became a fan-favorite comedy and a cult classic, giving birth to some of Verdone’s most recognizable carachters of his whole 40+ years career.
The Soundtrack, composed by the late Maestro ENNIO MORRICONE, will be finally available on vinyl for the first time ever, to celebrate the 40th(+1) anniversary of this cult movie.

Solefald’s 1999 release Neonism available on vinyl for the first time!
Solefald was formed in Norway by members Lars Are "Lazare" Nedland and Cornelius Jakhelln in 1995.
Possessing a strong penchant for experimentation, Solefald were classified as avant-garde black metal.
Neonism was originally released in 1999 and ventured even further into the realms of genre expanding diversity than the band's debut album in what could be classified as an early example of ‘post black metal’.
Prog metal, black metal, punk, classical, jazz, as well as multiple modern styles and influences such as drum & bass and electronica were combined to make an incredibly varied album both instrumentally and vocally.
Double vinyl edition in gatefold sleeve.
Fanatics of '70s Italian giallos take note…
Behold a veritable smorgasbord of sounds that is Ennio Morricone’s score to Dario Argento’s debut film, THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE (a.k.a. L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo) from 1970.
Considered one of the genre’s gold standards, Maestro Morricone’s stunning sonic work is a masterful accompaniment to the knife-wielding images on the screen. This colorful (yet dark) score features il Maestro’s trademark scat vocal harmonies, beautiful melodies, and mandatory sinister themes – perfect musica for this wonderfully stylistic giallo masterpiece.
Side C and D contain tracks never previously released on vinyl.

"High Tension vol. 35 / Calibro 35 plays Lesiman" slightly shifts the quartet's action scope still towards music for films; the reference is the so-called 'library music' which, as the term itself suggests, can be defined as a discotheque made of sounds and compositions rich in experimentation, sometimes avant-garde and label-free, which film directors drew from to sonorize their works.
This is a world which Calibro 35 are undoubtedly related to from the beginning, but that they had never dealt with as strongly as in this record: here the four-piece, accompanied by Sebastiano De Gennaro on percussion and Luisa Santacesaria on piano, reworks some compositions by the famous Paolo Renosto / Lesiman firstly published in the early '70s.
Standard 180gr. black vinyl edition.
Pino Donaggio is great in creating romantically laced cues that are played alongside dramatic sounding compositions.
This score was written in 1974, before the composer had really established his 'sound', but nevertheless the music has great character and contains some interesting orchestrations and arrangements.
Strangely, many collectors of Italian film music often forget or side step the Donaggio's work, which combines traditional Italian sounding motifs and musical passages with his own compositions and arrangements, creating a rewarding and at times amusing listen.
This soundtrack has never been reprinted on vinyl since 1974 until today and this edition, with a new artwork, it's the first LP reissue ever!
Special edition on solid red vinyl exclusively made for the Record Store Day 2019!
"Il mio nome è Nessuno" (My name is Nobody) is an atypical western, difficult to classify as it’s placed halfway between the founders of the genre of the '60s and the comedies of the following decade.
The other element of the tip comes of course from the music of Ennio Morricone, who writes and orchestrates a really varied soundtrack, which easily adapts itself to the various scenes moods. There is everything: tensive soundscapes, epic symphonic rides – directly referring the "Dollar Trilogy", frivolous and light-hearted moments, all mixed with a disarming naturalness.
This particular edition on AMS Records shows a completely renovated artwork and a 60x30cm poster with reproductions of flyers and lobby cards of the era.
I Malamondo, a strange and offbeat mondo-movie about the youth of the early ‘60s, directed by Paolo Cavara.
This is one of the earliest works of Maestro Morricone, as well as one of his most eccentric and colorful scores ever. Quirky and vivid, this soundtrack spans through many different kinds of music, from classic, bossanova and jazz to latin and exotica, including panoramic orchestral numbers and melodic, romantic themes. Most of the tracks feature the brilliant vocal performances of “I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni” and “I 4+4 di Nora Orlandi”.
Carefully restored and remastered from the original master tapes, this edition includes 7 unreleased pieces (9 for the CD/Digital editions) and two tracks released on vinyl for the first time.
