Awesome Italian Soundtrack Vinyl: Morricone, Riz Ortolani, Goblin, Bruno Nicolai

Eyeball italian horror soundtrack vinyl

It really doesn’t get any more awesome, album cover-wise, than the Bruno Nicolai soundtrack for Eyeball. Turntabling has copies of this one for sale while supplies last, but that’s not all from Italy. Have you heard the Torso soundtrack by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis? Another great album cover, too.

Ennio Morricone titles have been coming out fast and furious lately, and the album artwork for those is just as excellent as the sounds themselves. Some people are buying these reissues just for the covers, and who can blame them? Morricone’s soundtrack for The Humanoid, for example:

And let’s not forget what Goblin brings to the table-those synth textures blended with a prog mentality equals some seriously unique soundtrack vinyl sounds. The Buio Omega soundtrack is an all-time favorite around here:

Fabio Frizzi Tours America With The Beyond

Fabio Frizzi Tours America The Beyond Soundtrack

According to the maestro’s Facebook page, there are going to be several dates across America where you can experience Fabio Frizzi’s Composer’s Cut of The Beyond. The All Tomorrow’s Parties website has some excellent in-depth discussion of Frizzi, the tour and much more. It’s an exciting bit of news for any fan of Italian genre films and soundtracks. Turntabling definitely plans to be at the Chicago show…the tour is running stateside from September to October 2016.

And it’s true, we definitely have more than a couple of Frizzi titles for sale in the Turntabling Discogs shop. Are you into the sounds of Manhattan Baby? A Cat In The Brain? Zombi? We have all that and more!

Need a sneak preview of this show and how it is likely to sound? Fabio Frizzi was kind enough to post some rehearsal footage on his official YouTube site. Behold the spider scene below!

Deep Red (Profondo Rosso) Trailer




Why are some of us vinyl collectors so hung up on giallo soundtracks, Italian horror, and Italian cinema in general? The Ennio Morricone connection aside, there is some kind of weird perfect storm that happens when you get the music, the trailes, and the movies together. A look at the Deep Red trailer is proof of that. Deep Red, aka Profondo Rosso, was directed by Dario Argento at the height of his talent and cinematic clout. Starring David Hemmings and Dario Nicolodi, this is a GREAT entry into the world of giallo. If you haven’t seen it, the trailer might just push you over the edge.

Goblin’s score for this goes all over the place, from edgy prog to moody atmospheres, and it’s fairly unique among their output if you’re thinking of soundtracks like Dawn Of The Dead and Tenebre. This was a project Goblin stepped into after Giorgio Gaslini and Argento parted ways during the film. Gaslini gets a credit on the soundtrack, but Goblin is front and center.

P.S. if you let this video play and move on to the next ones, there are a TON of great Italian horror and horror-related trailers there…loads of classics!

La Ragazza Con La Pistola Soundtrack and Trailer

Monic Vittia La Ragazza Con PistolaIf the name Monica Vitti doesn’t tell you everything you need to know about La Ragazza con la Pistola, then perhaps you need a bit more nudging from the trailer (below) which features a VERY groovy soundtrack indeed.¬†Composer Peppino Di Luca brings a whole truckload of groovy to this film and some of us could watch Monica Vitti do nothing more than read from the Italian version of the Yellow Pages (the Giallo Pages, perhaps?) for three hours…so this should be a no brainer. You can buy the soundtrack for La Ragazza con la Pistola (The Girl With The Gun) from Turntabling now while supplies last.

Clear Green Vinyl Edition of The New York Ripper Soundtrack: Fulci Strikes Again!

Fulci New York Ripper Soundtrack Clear Green vinyl
This insanity is now available in the Turntabling shop. The Francesco de Masi soundtrack for Lucio Fulci’s The New York Ripper is a highlight of this film, as is the presence of a maniac who taunts the police while quacking like a duck.

In fact, the killer in the New York Ripper sounds suspiciously like DEVO mascot Booji Boy, and it is VERY FUNNY INDEED to watch this movie pretending that is actually the case. However, this insane Fulci horror film is quite hard to watch because of some really unpleasant violence toward women-much stronger and nastier than many other Italian slasher movies of its kind. There are some for whom this is not considered a liability, but those of us who prefer the soundtrack over the film have only to watch the trailer below to remember why that is.

If you’re wondering why that is, I’ll just say that there is one broken-bottle-crotch-stabbing scene too many in this film, which is to say that there is one to be seen. Ugh. If it weren’t for the ferocity of the woman-hating in this particular film, it would be a a laff-riot of a movie. Still, Francesco de Masi does not disappoint in the soundtrack department and you can purchase the limited edition clear green vinyl edition of the soundtrack from Turntabling.

Giallo soundtracks What Have You Done To SolangeWe recently added the soundtrack vinyl for What Have You Done To Solange? to the Turntabling inventory, and if that fact alone doesn’t make you want to take a look, this trailer for the film might just do the trick:



Cosa avete fatto a Solange? is a classic of the era, and with a far more gritty plot than some of its peers. If you’re intrigued now, have a look at the vinyl record in the Turntabling shop.

Mayfair Stereo Demonstration Record…Demonstration




Ever wonder what the hell is on those old “stereo demonstration” records but didn’t want to shell out the extra few bucks to actually take a battered old copy home with you? Wonder no longer.

YouTuber James Will took the trouble to produce the video above-surprising that the company bothered to press this on specialty vinyl. The LP is called “Stereo Spectacular”. Transparent vinyl! Annoying “test clicks”! The guy with the “announcer voice”!

Creepshow OST Blue Vinyl, Eyeball Soundtrack by Bruno Nicolai: Now Available From Turntabling

Eyeball italian horror soundtrack vinylNow available from Turntabling-Bruno Nicolai’s awesome soundtrack to the wet-and-messy Italian slasher classic Eyeball, directed by Umberto Lenzi. Have a look at the trailer at the end of this post, it’s well worth checking out. The script for the trailer itself is priceless. “EYEBALL! You may never live to see the end of it!”

We’re also stocking limited quantities of the Creepshow soundtrack, pressed on blue vinyl. It’s pretty awesome and if seeing the cover art doesn’t make you want to re-watch Creepshow again, hearing the soundtrack definitely will. The film is one of director George Romero’s superior non-zombie films and makes a great Friday night pizza-n-scares title.

Creepshow soundtrack record blue vinyl

This one comes with a built-in booklet featuring production stills, artwork, and liner notes and it also includes a 12×12 art print!

An Eyeball/Creepshow double feature would be an excellent way to spend an evening, don’t you think?
