Ennio Morricone ‎– L'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo (Original Soundtrack) - LP Clear Orange

Dario Argento’s ‘opera prima’ ‘L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo’ was premiered in 1970 and marked an historical and revolutionary debut, being a truly original and innovative thriller.
Argento assigned the score to Ennio Morricone and for this movie the maestro adopted a particular style that draws heavily on contemporary music.
With ‘L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo’ Morricone develops this approach and defines a 'formula': he alternates traditional songs, built around an easy and immediate melody used as a leitmotiv, with avant-garde and abstract tracks that amplify the state of uneasiness and fear of the viewers.
This is the first vinyl reissue featuring the original score in Stereo, enclosed in a brand new artwork made by Adventprod studios!
Clear orange vinyl edition.

Calibro 35 ‎– High Tension Vol. 35 (Calibro 35 Plays Lesiman) - LP

"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.

Ennio Morricone ‎– Il Mio Nome E' Nessuno (Original Soundtrack) - LP

"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.

Ennio Morricone ‎– Il Gatto A Nove Code (Original Soundtrack) - LP

"Il gatto a nove code" (The cat o 'nine tails), filmed in 1971, is the second film by Dario Argento, a horror thriller still distant from his horror works for which he will later become famous on an international level. The collaboration with the composer and conductor Ennio Morricone, already known for his work on Sergio Leone’s western movies, is here renewed after the success of "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage".
When the previous soundtrack for Argento’s first movie had proved to be a really tough listen, here Morricone goes even further, creating a really dissonant and avant-garde sound, with practically one single basis theme in the form of a few essential bass guitar notes.


This score is reissued by AMS Records in LP format with gatefold cover.

Ennio Morricone ‎– Il Diavolo Nel Cervello (Original Soundtrack) - LP Purple

"Il Diavolo nel Cervello" (Devil in the brain) is a film directed in 1971 by Sergio Sollima and screened at the beginning of the following year; it's a psychological thriller in which tension is determined by the characters' psyche more than their actions.

"Il diavolo nel cervello" works on an almost-full symphonic register: on a strings-made ground we have piano, harpsichord, flutes and brass instruments.
Undoubtedly, one of the best productions of Maestro Morricone from those early '70s, including Bruno Nicolai as a conductor and Edda Dell'Orso singing choirs.

Yet another blend of music and imagery from the fervent Seventies to be rediscovered, here revived in LP format with a gatefold cover and a completely new graphic layout.

Franco Bixio ‎– A Pugni Nudi (Original SoundTrack) - LP

"A pugni nudi" (With bare fists) - presented with a more than explicit subtitle "For a sad experience in a juvenile detention center" - is a 1974 film directed by Marcello Zeani; it can be associated to the Italian police genre, but it stands on its own due to its being set in the world of boxing.
It's a drama movie too, with a non-optimistic nor hopeful ending at all, accompanied by the music of Franco Bixio, with a distinctive jazz-rock imprint, a strong presence of symphonic arrangements and a singular more 'disengaged' episode ("Split second", on the B side of the LP).

A small gem, equally able to describe dramatic and tensive moments, now rediscovered and reissued for the first time on vinyl by AMS Records!

Ennio Morricone ‎– Nuovo Cinema Paradiso (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - LP

Just reading the artist and the title of this work would be more than enough to present this release: the most renowned Italian musician, composer and conductor, followed by one of the most famous Italian films ever: that's just what they are, after all, Ennio Morricone and "Cinema Paradiso", a film that in 1990 earned director Giuseppe Tornatore an Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
Love, nostalgia, melancholy, these are the three main ingredients of "Cinema Paradiso", the same that characterize Morricone's soundtrack.
A work of pure classical music: orchestral, symphonic, compelling and moving, it's the perfect comment to the scenes expertly directed by Tornatore.

180gr. black vinyl with gatefold cover.

Goblin ‎– Buio Omega (The Complete Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - LP

“Buio Omega”, two short and simple words that, in the mind of Goblin’s fans as well as in the horror/splatter movies fanatics’ one, recall sounds and images of a legendary film. Directed in 1979 by Joe D’Amato, it still impresses with the rawness and morbidity of its scenes, the trademark of a director who, much more than others, befits the term ‘extreme’.
The soundtrack of the film, whose main ingredients are keyboards and synthesizers, swings among echoes of Alan Parsons Project, funk / fusion and melancholic atmospheres. 

“Buio Omega” is pressed on vinyl today for the first time ever!
The LP is housed in a beautiful gatefold cover showing inside recording sessions photos and promotional flyers/postcards.
