Sink Your Teeth Into The Malenka OST


 A gorgeous woman inherits a title, an ancient castle, an intense painting that resembles her, and a new set of relatives with extraordinary smiles.  Malenka, La Nipote del Vampiro , a.k.a. Fangs of the Living Dead (1969) is a spooky Spanish/Italian movie with beauties abound.

Carlo Savina’s soundtrack is thick with the harpsichord chills and whistling winds. This limited edition (pressing of 500) Quartet Records CD, also includes the score to the movie  I Diabolici Convegni , a.k.a. Las Amantes del Diablo (1971).  This suspense film involves , a missing woman, a curious sister, and a suspicious doctor. All together, there’s 65:39 minutes of haunted castle and suspense music.  

Turntabling has a CD copy of Malenka, La Nipote del Vampiro for sale at Discogs.com.  First come, first served.

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 Howling OST CD Pino Donaggio

The Howling Soundtrack Pino DonaggioIt’s true that we give Morricone, Piero Umiliani, Lalo Schifrin and other composers a lot of love here at Turntabling. It’s also true that Pino Donaggio hasn’t really gotten his due in these pages, something we hope to remedy with The Howling soundtrack. There are some definite Italo-sentimentale moments on this one, but also the requisite creepy strings and a few Goblin-esque moments (Donaggio would probably hate us for saying that, but we call ’em like we hear ’em.).

Fans of The Howling will love this soundtrack disc, available here in limited quantities. This is the La-La Land Records release of The Howling, in case you’re keeping track.

The Howling is a new, shrinkwrapped compact disc. Buy it now from Turntabling for $17.00 plus shipping.

Riz Ortolani Cannibal Holocaust Soundtrack CD

cannibal holocaust soundtrack Riz Ortolani

Riz Ortolani’s soundtrack to the infamous Ruggero Deodato film Cannibal Holocaust is completely disarming. From the opening theme to the stark, minimalist synth cues used to punctuate the shocking events onscreen, this is one soundtrack CD that can’t be pigeonholed, boiled down to its’ essence, or easily categorized.

The score is also sneakily influential–whether on purpose or not, you can hear echoes of it all the way down the line to Air’s Sexy Boy synth riffs, and while you may be totally put off by the content of the film, there’s no denying its’ power or effectiveness. It provokes an emotional response, and isn’t that the purpose of all art? No matter whether you think the filmmakers meant to or not, for all the shocking, awful things in the movie it is easily as transcendent as people believe Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odessy to be. (How’s that for going out on a limb?)

That’s pretty strong stuff, to be sure…but viewing the two films side by side you’ll find more in common than you realize–again, regardless of director intent, stomach turning events on screen, and etc. But we’re getting off topic here. Riz Ortolani shows off some fascinating depth here. To be sure, if the music were completely divorced from its subject matter it might not pack as much of a punch, but it’s not.

This version of the soundtrack contains a CD-ROM interview feature with Ortolani, so fans will be interested for that little freebie; the fact that this went out of print in 2003 and has been harder to find ever since doesn’t hurt. How long will this last? Get yours while you still can.

The Cannibal Holocaust original soundtrack by Riz Ortolani is a new, sealed compact disc. Buy it now from Turntabling for $20 plus shipping.


Blacula Soundtrack: Awesome 70s Funk


blacula-soundtrack-gene-page-hues-corporation

You can laugh all you want, but I am totally digging the Blacula soundtrack. It’s been on the speakers practically non-stop since I found it. This is a hell of an album–massively funky, and totally 70s. It features some outstanding work by Gene Page, but also has three tracks by a pre “Rock the Boat” Hues Corporation. Another group called 21st Century Ltd. also makes a showing. Gene Page absolutely tears it up with “Stalkwalk”, check the YouTube clip below to hear this…fantastic.

Blacula as a movie was a hell of a lot of fun. This movie wanted very badly to be a corny piece of crap at times, but William Marshall stole the movie back as the head vampire. Marshall, a Shakeaspear vet with  huge screen  presence, managed to inject some actual humanity into the part. Thalmus Rasulala is great as a reluctant, the inner-city Van Helsing-type. But back to the music. There aren’t many clinkers on this album–only one, really. That’s saying a lot for a soundtrack album.  If you have Tarantino-retro damage or genuinely love the old 60s and 70s styles, grab this one and fast. It’s hard to find on vinyl, but you can still score it on a big round platter if you look hard enough.
