Bruno Nicolai Marquis De Sade Vinyl LP

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.

New Vinyl LPs at Turntabling

Turntabling has some awesome new additions for sale including a metric TON of Italian soundtracks on vinyl, plus some collections of soundtrack sounds like the Piomobo Rovente LP collection pictured here.

Piomobo Rovente, released on Plastic Records, is crammed full of essential sounds by Francesco de Masi, Pulsar, and Guido E Maurizio De Angelis. This vinyl record has names longtime Italian soundtrack lovers will be pleased with–newcomers to this genre should definitely get to know the composers represented on this record. See below for some YouTube clips from this LP you won’t want to miss.

Piomobo Rovente has cuts from a variety of Italian police thrillers including Napoli Spara, two from La Polizia Incrimina, La Legge Assolve, three from Roma Violenta, quite a few from La Macchina Della Violenza, and one track each from Milano Violenta, Roma A Mano Armata, and La Poliziotta Fa Carriera.

You can buy Piomobo Rovente from Turntabling--first come, first served!

Don’t miss it, it likely won’t be around long. Plastic Records is another one of those Italian labels we like to grab whenever we can find their material. They’re just as awesome as Right Tempo/Easy Tempo, Dagored and Cinevox as far as Turntabling is concerned.

This is just one of the rare, cool, hard-to-find, and just plain awesome records we’ve found while scouring the earth for the right kinds of records. Other recent additions for sale include the awesome reissue of Marshall McLuhan’s The Medium is the Massage LP by Five Day Weekend Records.

Five Day Weekend did us ALL a favor by reissuing this LP in all its dated, 60s glory. Make no mistake, “dated” in this context is TOTALLY awesome. There’s nothing like some of these crazy 60s-era sonic experiments, and I highly recommend picking this up if you’re a fan of stuff like the Modcinema.com DVDs Colorspace Volume One, Colorshopping, etc.

Released in 1968, you can get a fascinating look at what media theorists and manipulators were thinking about mass media way back then. Compare it to today’s musings about social media, Google, and other issues and you’ll draw some very interesting parallels.

This was quite a rarity in its original form–it did make it to CD but the real way to experience this is on that turntable rotating at 33 1/3 per minute. You can buy The Medium Is the Massage by Marshall McLuhan on a first-come, first served basis at Turntabling. When it’s gone…

Also just in, the Ennio Morricone soundtrack LP for Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) issued on Dagored, plus a CD copy of the Nico Fidenco soundtrack for Blue Jeans.

Turntabling has gotten a fair amount of CDs in stock over the last few weeks–are you interested in Italian soundtrack music on CD? Eurohorror? Crime and thriller soundtrack sounds? If so, you’ll want to check out the compilation CD Roma Violenta (La Cinevox Si Incazza) or Tecnica Di Un Omicidio / Quella Carogna Dell’Ispettore Sterling (Colonne Sonore Originali / Edizione Speciale) by Robby Poitevin.

There’s more–SO much more–at the Turntabling Discogs shop on vinyl and on compact discs.

Have a look and don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions. We’re happy to help! Also, don’t forget that Turntabling buys record collections–if you want to sell us yours, get in touch with us via e-mail: jwallace242 at gmail. We buy soundtracks, horror film-related vinyl, electronic music, goth and industrial sounds, post-punk and punk. We DO NOT BUY show tunes, Broadway, classical, hip hop made after 1992, 80s and 90s metal or country.

Get in touch to learn more about our buying policies and current needs and thank you very much for your interest.

Morricone Dollars Trilogy CD Collection

Morricone Dollars TrilogyWhile it’s true that Morricone doesn’t seem to like the phrase “spaghetti western” these days and he–according to reports we read–likes to selectively remember some of the projects he was involved with back in the heyday of Italian cinema, this double disc CD set is priceless.

All three of the Dollars Trilogy soundtracks are collected here including the complete score for A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. From the opening strains of Il Buono, Il Brutto, e Il Cattivo to the big finish of Per Un Pugno Di Dollari, this is one soundtrack collection that’s a must-own for genre fans and Morricone lovers alike.

The spaghetti westerns are the gateway to a world of music that really does turn into an addiction. Morricone may not be happy answering yet another round of questions about his earliest works, but the fact that people are STILL fascinated by these sounds is very telling. Morricone created a new musical language starting with these early works…and they only get better over time.

The Ennio Morricone Complete Dollars Trilogy is a new, sealed double-disc CD set. Buy it now for Turntabling for $18 plus shipping.






The Erotic and Painful Obsessions of Jess Franco

The Erotic and Painful Obsessions of Jess FrancoTurntabling has gotten in quite a few erotica and softcore soundtrack titles lately, but The Erotic and Painful Obsessions of Jess Franco combines horror and softcore to great effect. This CD is a collection of three Jesse Franco soundtracks by Gerarh Heinz, who is a favorite on the Turntabling speakers.

Things get started nicely with the soundtrack to Lolita Am Scheidweg, also known as Eugenie. Next is the OST for Franco’s Bloody Moon, which has a couple of startlingly disco-fied cuts, but gets into some slightly Goblin-esque  euro-horror territory with Die Sage des Todes suite. Giorgio Moroder fans will be pleased by Disco Alternativ, and when the disc finally heads into the home stretch with the softcore OST for Linda, we’re almost in Morricone territory with Die Madchen im Kloster and Im Strandcafe.

A little bossa, a little horror, some disco…what’s not to love about The Erotic and Painful Obsessions of Jess Franco? This is easily one of the most enjoyable titles we carry.

The Erotic and Painful Obsessions of Jess Franco is a new, sealed CD. Buy it now for $18.00 US plus shipping.





Isaac Hayes Tough Guys Soundtrack & Trailer

tough-guys-soundtrack-isaac-hayes

Isaac Hayes scored this great, cheesy Italian action flick called Tough Guys. The soundtrack is classic Hayes, including the waka-waka guitars he made famous in Shaft. The vinyl for this is still available…you can find it second hand in used record shops, but it’s also available in limited quantities on Amazon. A better value might be to buy and download the MP3 double-album of Tough Guys AND Truck Turner, also scored by and starring Isaac Hayes.

Check out the trailer for this goof-fest, inexplicably named Three Tough Guys for simpleton American drive-in audiences. Too bad the theme song is all about TWO tough guys. Heh. Check out the trailer for this one…Isaac Hayes chewing up the astroturf with his sidekick…a bareknuckle-brawlin’ Catholic Priest!
