Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack for Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange? (What Have You Done To Solange?) is, for obsessive Morricone lovers at the very least, a MUST-HAVE. The lurid album cover art, the salacious set pieces, and the dreamy vocalizations of Edda dell’Orso make this one of the all-time greats of the era. Have a good look (and listen) to the trailer and you might just catch yourself wondering why you never checked this one out before. If you already know, imagine how it great it would be to hear this for the first time all over again.
(We include these trailers because, let’s face it, trailers are awesome…but sadly some get removed after a time and while we have no control over THAT, we do like to bring them as long as they are available. If you experience a broken trailer link here, apologies…but blame YouTube!)
Jess Franco did a wonderful thing by bringing on Morricone conductor (and soundtrack legend in his own right) Bruno Nicolai on board for his film referencing de Sade…this one is also back in stock and features the super-groovy Drug Party track worth the price of the LP all by itself.
The sights and sounds of the spaghetti western may be an acquired taste for some, but if you’re hooked on the genre, you know what it means to be stylistically obsessed with these unique films and their wonderfully crazy soundtracks.
Thrill to this awesome spaghetti western soundtrack compilation, The Ecstasy of Gold Volume Four, posted on Youtube by an obviously dedicated fan. Many of the best-known Italian soundtrack geniuses are here: Nico Fidenco, Bruno Nicolai, Francesco di Masi, Franco Micalizzi…if you know these names, you know this is a compilation worth its’ weight in gold bullets.
We are about to add a nice selection of titles to the Turntabling shop, but as we are processing new arrivals, have a look at some of THESE amazing vinyl records still in stock and getting more rare by the day, from the looks of things!
Definitely not a compilation, but this stunner from Morricone conductor Bruno Nicolai is a totally must-have soundtrack for any fan of the giallo genre. The movie itself is entertaining as hell, with twists, twists of previous twists, and plenty of scenery chewing by Anthony Steffen, who plays a character described by the IMDB as a “wealthy pervert”. If that doesn’t get your full attention, you probably don’t need to see this film.
I got an awesome e-mail today asking about the soundtrack for the film Forbidden Photos of A Woman Above Suspicion, AKA Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene. Specifically, the question was, what can you recommend that is similar the Bossa Nova sounds of this film.
That e-mail made my day, and I decided to make an entire post of recommendations for anyone who loves the music you hear in the opening five minutes of Le Foto Prohibite….here’s that clip, courtesy of YouTube, naturally:
Now check out the amazing soundtrack sounds of La Lucertola Con La Pelle Di Donna, AKA Lizard In A Woman’s Skin. Yes, Ennio Morricone actually did a soundtrack for a Fulci film!!!
On a lighter note, check out this by Bruno Nicolai, from All The Colors Of The Dark:
And then there’s THIS, from The Bliss of Mrs. Bottom, by Riz “Cannibal Holocaust” Ortolani. I confess I’ve never seen or heard of this film til today when I researched Ortolani’s Bossa Nova-type output:
Piero Piccioni has a LOT of Bossa Nova sounds. Ignore the ad and get to this one, Bossa Nova Marina pretty amazing.
And finally we wind our way back to the Maestro, Ennio Morricone, for one more, from Metti Una Sera a Cena:
