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:
And Riz Ortolani did work on Lucio Fulci’s Don’t Torture A Duckling. Can you afford to live without this one? Any fan of giallo films or Fulci in general would do well to at least give this one it’s day in court.
All these and MUCH MORE are available for sale, while supplies last, in the Turntabling shop.
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.
It’s official, Turntabling is back in the record selling biz! I got things started tonight with a nice selection of import and hard-to-find soundtrack CDs, but the vinyl is DEFINITELY on its way.
Turntabling is selling on Discogs.com and soon our Etsy shop will be back up and running, too.
For those of you visiting for the first time, Turntabling is my small, scrappy indie vinyl preservation effort. I’m based in Chicago and I archive rare and weird vinyl, buy/sell/trade LPs and CDs and basically live the vinyl lifestyle. In the spring and summer I do Vinyl Road Rage, which is a cross-country vinyl buying and blogging spree. Last time out it was Chicago to San Antonio, Texas and prior to that I’ve gone from Chicago to NYC and out to many other far flung places.
If you have vinyl to sell or titles you’re looking to buy, do get in touch. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading and I look forward to listing tons of rare, unusual, hard-to-find, and just plain amazing vinyl records. Stay tuned…I have thousands of titles, it just takes a bit of time to load em all in!

Our most popular title! The Goblin Collection Volume One is a fantastic cross-section of Goblin soundtrack sounds, from Profondo Rosso to Dawn of the Dead and Buio Omega. If you’re a new Goblin fan this is a GREAT way to sample their diverse soundtrack sounds. Our favorites are the Dawn of the Dead tracks (naturally) and also the Buio Omega cuts. Contamination is also fun but we also can’t get enough of the cheesy 70s vibe of the Via Della Droga cuts.
Every time we show up at a horror movie convention or film festival with these on the table, they sell out. Now they’re available here–you don’t have to wait for the next HorrorHound Weekend or Chicago Horror Society event to pick one up from us. And to all who have purchased one of these already, thanks for your support–we greatly appreciate it.
We’re trying an experiment with this most excellent Goblin Greatest Hits CD (Volume One 1975-1989). We’ve set up a Turntabling Amazon storefront to process our orders and are trying it on for size with a range of products. Everything still ships directly from Turntabling HQ here in Chicago, but when you click to buy the Goblin CD your order is processed via Amazon. Please let us know if you experience any issues or difficulties with this system.
Buy the Goblin Collection Volume I 1975-1989. This is a brand-new shrinkwrapped CD which ships directly from Turntabling.
