1979 saw Goblin working on the soundtrack for this Italian film starring Jaqueline Bisset and Terence Stamp. Believe it or not, the title track was informed more by Burt Bacharach than prog, but the old classic proggy Goblin sound does rear its head on parts of this soundtrack.
Have a listen to this rare, unusual-for-Goblin track from Amo Non Amo, released in the USA as Together? Turntabling has this Goblin soundtrack on vinyl for sale while supplies last…
Here’s some of the more what-you’d-expect from Goblin from the very same soundtrack:
The soundtrack to Joe D’Amato’s Buio Omega is a pretty awesome proggy bass-n-synth fest that really doesn’t let you in on what you’re going to see when this Italian slash-splat masterpiece gets going.
It’s got everything a transgressive Italian horror movie should have–a bit of wanton slicing, some embalming, some necrophilia…and then there’s the score by Goblin, which really shows off another side of the band that you don’t really get to fully appreciate with Suspiria or Dawn of the Dead.
Buio Omega can be a rough watch–it’s a grossout contest once the embalming sequences start, and the corpse disposal scene is pretty stomach-churning. But the soundtrack for this must not be missed.
Check out a full ten minutes of the Goblin soundtrack for Buio Omega courtesy of Youtube (while it lasts, you never know when they’re going to take it down, those YouTube folks) and don’t miss the trailer below, either.
By the way, the Goblin soundtrack for Buio Omega is one of the titles for sale in the Turntabling shop.
There is a LOT of vinyl goodness on sale at the Turntabling Discogs shop.
We’ve made some great finds recently and there are plenty of rare and hard to find LPs there including the Death Waltz edition of the Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue soundtrack, which is fantastic all on its own, but comes beautifully packaged from Death Waltz complete with a poster and that excellent cover art.
We were also lucky enough to get our hands on a vinyl copy of the Five Dolls For An August Moon sountrack–Piero Umilliani scoring for Mario Bava? That is a combination that just cannot go wrong. This one is a must-have for any fan of Bava, or the soundtrack sounds from that era of Italian cinema. Fabulous.
And then there’s the Eraserhead soundtrack, a double LP reissue that is increasingly hard to find. Where to start? David Lynch creates an experience like no other both in the film AND on the soundtrack record, which really does stand all on its own with or without the film. How on earth could a soundtrack fan or a Lynch afficianado be without this? The version we’re selling is the amazing reissue on Sacred Bones which has a TON of extras. Buy this before I change my mind about selling it!
The George Romero film Day Of The Dead now has a couple of editions out when it comes to soundtrack albums, and we’ve got both in the shop–this one and the Waxworks edition (while supplies last). This is a sealed edition of the original issue John Harrison soundtrack and features that 80s artwork we all know and love. The dead walk!
These soundtrack albums are available via the Turntabling Discogs shop and are for sale while supplies last only. First come, first served!
Bruno Nicolai and Jess Franco? Yes indeed! De Sade was seemingly a favorite topic of Franco’s, he kept coming back to the famous old pervert again and again, if not directly, certainly in the concepts and themes of those naughty old stories. Bondage, S&M, blood, you name it…Franco and De Sade go together like coffee and cream.
The soundtrack for this film is just what you’d expect from Nicolai, who composed and conducted with Morricone, which is likely why you hear some textures and techniques in common with good ol’ Ennio’s work.
Turntabling has a copy for sale of this delicious vinyl pairing of two Maestros working together back in 1969…this is the Finders Keepers edition with the purple cover. If you love the sexy sounds of Jess Franco movies and have a thing for classic Italian soundtrack composers like Bruno Nicolai, have a listen to this record…(sample below) and you’ll wonder why you haven’t added this to your collection yet.
You can buy this vinyl edition of Marquis De Sade from the Turntabling Discogs shop while supplies last. Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good! Check out the track from this LP below, “Drug Party”, which is pretty awesome.
