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.
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.
The latest vinyl titles up for sale in the Turntabling shop include a BUNCH of awesome limited edition vinyl from Dagored in Italy, featuring none other than Ennio Morricone. Dagored is one of the best labels in existence when it comes to these reissues, and it is very exciting to have a nice pile of their releases back in the shop.
One of the most unusual spaghetti westerns of the period (when they were all the rage) is the one starring Klaus Kinski called Il Grande Silenzio, which just so happens to have one of Morricone’s moodiest soundtracks. SEE THIS MOVIE BEFORE YOU CROAK if you know what’s good for you. It’s the strangest western NOT starring Bob Dylan. Maybe that’s going a bit too far, but just know that you are NOT getting the usual stuff with this one. It’s refreshingly left-of-center. Buy the limited edition vinyl LP soundtrack for Il Grande Silenzio from Turntabling.
This trailer might provide a little tiny hint at what you can expect…
Revolveris major favorite here at Turntabling vinyl central…one listen to this record and you’ll be instantly hooked, and the film is crazy good, too. None other than Oliver Reed gets to chew a LOT of scenery in this one and the ending? Well, wow. This is another of the most fun-to-watch Italian films of the era, and is packed full of twists and turns. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Purchase the Revolver soundtrack vinyl from Turntabling.
True confession time–at the time of this writing nobody here at Turntabling has actually seen The Link, but it certainly has the provocative album cover you’re used to getting from Italian soundtrack reissues, and the presence of Ennio Morricone can only make the viewing experience better, regardless of the actual quality of the film. This one is on our to-watch list, for sure.
And last, we have this lovely and VERY limited edition yellow vinyl edition of Morricone’s soundtrack for Escalation. Scroll below to hear one of the best tracks from this or any other Morricone soundtrack of the era. In the meantime, don’t miss out on this one, another example of a limited edition (500 copies on yellow vinyl) that will be gone soon, soon.
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:
