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!

Sergio Martino’s Torso Trailer


Sergio Martino directs Suzy Kendall in Torso, released in 1973. It’s one of the sleazier giallo films from Italy, featuring a soundtrack by Guido and Maurizio de Angelis which you can buy for a limited time from Turntabling.

Any Italian film that features Suzy Kendall in peril is worth at least a look, and Torso does NOT disappoint. It co-stars Luc Merenda, the awesome Carla Brait who giallo fans will remember as “Mizar Harrington” from another high-quality giallo, Case of the Bloody Iris, starring the one and only Edwidge Fenech.

Turntabling is obsessed with the soundtracks to films like this-there’s something about those dissonant guitars, the lounge interludes, and the often VERY experimental approaches to music composition in general. Long before Throbbing Gristle showed up on the scene to make uncomfortable noise in a musical context, composers like the de Angelis brothers, Fabio Frizzi, Ennio Morricone, Riz Ortolani and many others were doing similar things for 60s, 70s, and 80s era Italian films and international productions.

If you find yourself gravitating towards these sounds, do take a moment to browse the Turntabling collection as you’ll find quite a bit of these sounds to obsess over.

Goblin Soundtracks: Amo Non Amo

Goblin Amo Non Amo vinyl cinevox
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:


Rare CDs Are Fun To Collect, Too!

Man From Deep River Soundtrack CD


Sometimes you can’t find this stuff on vinyl but there are TONS of limited edition releases out there of soundtracks like this….it takes some dedicated digging to turn them up from time to time, but there are lots of no-more-than-1000-made reissues of soundtracks like these thanks to awesome labels like Beat, Cinevox, Easy Tempo and much more…

And yes, Turntabling DOES sell rare, hard-to-find, weird, and just plain cool soundtracks on CD too. We’re at http://www.discogs.com/seller/Turntabling on Discogs.com




Dario Argento Soundtrack Vinyl For Sale at Turntabling

By popular demand, here’s an ever-growing list of the Dario Argento related titles currently available for sale here. This list is all the vinyl, we’ll post the compact disc collection very soon. Please note that in most cases this vinyl is either out of print or going to be so very soon.

All titles for sale here are sealed and unopened unless otherwise indicated. We actually don’t have any used Argento vinyl for sale here–can’t find any and the people who own these titles hang on to them for dear life–but we have to let you know it’s sealed, regardless.

Goblin Dawn Of The Dead Soundtrack Vinyl LP


Dario Argento acted as a producer on the ground-breaking George Romero undead opus, so it gets included here.

Argento was also responsible for bringing Goblin to the table for the soundtrack so he gets double kudos for this. The bad news is that this Dagored vinyl LP is out of print now and when supplies are gone, they’re gone for good unless the Italian distributor decides to print another run someday. This is now extremely collectible.

This is a new, sealed import vinyl LP. Buy the Dawn of the Dead soundtrack by Goblin from Turntabling for $28.00. These are going fast–when they’re gone, they’re gone for good.

Tenebre Soundtrack Vinyl LP by Goblin


The vinyl LP soundtrack for Tenebre on Dagored Records is even more collectible than Dawn of the Dead. This title is out of print and likely not to return, which means that sealed, unopened copies are worth far more today than ever.

This soundtrack is one Argento’s most famous, thanks in part to Claudio Simonetti’s Italo disco stylings on the best-known cuts. Technically speaking this is not a Goblin record–the band wasn’t able to use the name for contractual reasons at the time–but this is classic Goblin nonetheless, if not a completely different sound for the group. Completist collectors should definitely try to get their hands on one of these while it’s still available. Tenebre is a sealed, import vinyl LP pressed on 180 gram vinyl

Buy Tenebre from Turntabling for $30.00 plus shipping.

Four Flies On Grey Velvet Soundtrack Vinyl LP Ennio Morricone


You won’t get Morricone’s haunting score for this early giallo by Argento out of your head for weeks. The whispers, moans and experimental percussion are a lower-volume precursor to the high-octane shrieks and clangs in Suspiria. Some might call that a stretch, but listen to the two soundtracks back to back and you might be surprised.

This too is a highly endangered species on vinyl–when supplies are gone, they’re gone! Just TRY to find this in any used record shop or on eBay for a reasonable price. We have a limited supply of Four Flies On Grey Velvet, they are sealed, 180 gram vinyl LPs on the excellent Dagored label. Get them while they last!

Buy the Four Flies On Grey Velvet vinyl record from Turntabling for $29.00 plus shipping.

Suspiria Vinyl LP by Goblin


The king of the Argento soundtracks, Suspiria features Goblin at the hieght of their creativity and spookiness. This album completely transcends the film its in, standing alone as a sonic accomplishment that demands to be recognized with or without the film.

Suspiria is also out of print and getting more scarce in this form than ever. It will soon be listed as ultra-rare and as with Tenebre, we challenge crate diggers to find one of these in the used bins–we’ve never seen it happen!

We have extremely limited stock of this awesome vinyl record, sealed and unsullied by human hands. Suspiria is a sealed, imported vinyl record on 180-gram vinyl.

Buy Suspiria now from Turntabling for $39.00 plus shipping.

Deep Red AKA Profondo Rosso by Goblin


Goblin’s soundtrack for Deep Red, also known as Profondo Rosso, is a driving prog-filled album that really enhances the film. There are a couple of cheesy moments with analog synth flourishes thrown in for no apparent reason, but these are quickly forgotten when the prog attack kicks in again.

Goblin was in fine form on this soundtrack in spite of being intimidated by the job–they were brought onto the film after Argento fired the original composer…but Simonetti and company stepped up to the task quite nicely. As with so many (all?) of the other titles in the Dario Argento soundtrack catalog, this particular release on Dagored Records is going out of print and is more of a rarity than ever for vinyl junkies.

The Goblin Profondo Rosso soundtrack is a new, sealed vinyl LP on 180-gram vinyl. Buy it now while supplies last from Turntabling for $28.00 plus shipping.

That’s all the Argento vinyl we have in stock currently. Stay tuned for the list of Argento-related CD titles!

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

the night evelyn came out of the grave bruno nicolai

This great giallo has everything–senseless murders, sadomasochism, a sweaty obsessive maniac with a penchant for thigh-high boots…in short, a hell of a lot of fun. How many strange women can he lure back to the torture dungeon before somebody catches on?

The score by Bruno Nicolai is every bit as fun and is a must-own if you’re a fan of Nicolai’s other work in movies like Case of the Bloody Iris and Nightmares Come At Night.  How CAN you go wrong with tracks titled “Funeral Strip Tease” or “After Fleeing the Torture”?

There is plenty to revel in with The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, also known as La Notte Che Evelyn Usci’ Dalla Tomba. Turntabling is pleased to offer this Italian import CD for the first time. If you haven’t seen this one yet, you owe it to yourself to at least check out the trailer (below). This has some of our favorite moments of giallo history. The boot fetish thing really gives this a nice kick (hah) and the ending (which we won’t spoil here) is also a nice touch. All around this is a hell of a good watch, especially with a six pack of your favorite wine (is that too much?) and a jumbo-sized pizza. Don’t hold the anchovies, this is Italian cinema!

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave OST by Bruno Nicolai is a new, sealed import compact disc. Buy it now from Turntabling for $29 plus shipping.







Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer OST CD

perche quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di jennifer soundtrack

Sold in America as Case of the Bloody Iris, Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer? is a favorite giallo on the Turntabling DVD player. The soundtrack is excellent retro 60s lounge fun combined with Morricone-esque suspense cues. And with good reason, Bruno Nicolai was Morricone’s conductor and it’s easy to hear the maestro’s influence on Nicolai’s soundtrack work.

That’s not a bad thing in this case, either; Nicolai is great in his own right as evidenced on this import soundtrack CD. Yes, imports can be pricey but those who obsess over these sounds are definitely in for a treat with this disc. There’s a damn fine reason why I’m excited about this  addition to the Turntabling lineup–it was missing from the personal collection and getting it in here meant FINALLY getting to hear it after obsessing over this film for many years.

The film itself is awesome. Edwige Fenech has never been sexier, the plot twists are fun, and the quirky characters really make the movie what it is…it’s a more fun Four Flies On Grey Velvet in some ways, but looks far more retro-modern. Three cheers for Italian futurist decor! A twisty-turny giallo that features a free-love cult, a suspected serial killer who can’t stand the sight of blood, and a great pervy photographer who believes in the old adage, “sex sells”.

The soundtrack for Case of the Bloody Iris is a new, sealed imported compact disc from Italy. Buy it now from Turntabling for $29.00 plus shipping.

New Titles Coming Soon to Turntabling: Bruno Nicolai Collection

Case of the Bloody Iris Bruno Nicolai
I’m very excited to announce a limited collection of Bruno Nicolai titles for sale at Turntabling including the original soundtracks for Case of the Bloody Iris, also known as Perché quelle strane gocce di sangue sul corpo di Jennifer? That one was sold as part of the infamous Anchor Bay Giallo Collection boxed set several years ago.

We’ll also be stocking the Bruno Nicolai soundtrack for The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave, AKA La Notte che Evelyn Usci Dalla Tomba, and also the soundtrack Nicolai did for Nightmares Come At Night.

If that weren’t enough, we will also be bringing you another soundtrack from the Anchor Bay Giallo Collection, Ennio Morricone’s score for Short Night of Glass Dolls, one of the best giallos ever, for my money. Keep watching the site, you’ll see these awesome soundtrack CDs coming quite soon. Sadly they are NOT available on vinyl, but they are DEFINITELY worth the investment.

I even have another little surprise in store…an experiment that could lead to a whole new offering here. But only if there’s enough interest. Should Turntabling branch out and start selling DVDs along with the soundtracks? Stay tuned.
