Umberto is a new obsession for Turntabling, and as usual we’re a bit behind the times as this material has been available for quite some time. If you are a Goblin/Morricone/Cipriani fan and see anything at all by Umberto on vinyl, consider yourself warned–buy it immediately, or risk missing it altogether! This is top-quality stuff, as you’ll soon hear:
Stelvio Cipriani, Goblin, Paolo Vasile and plenty of other Italian names soundtrack fans know well make strong appearances on this awesome collection of soundtrack sounds from the best Italian crime thrillers of the 70s. La Polizia Ha Le Mani Legate? Got it. A Pugni Nudi? Yes indeed.
There are some great cuts compiled here on Roma Violenta, and if you’re just now discovering the Italian crime genre with all its delights, you owe it to yourself to check this Cinevox CD out–it’s a whole new world of 70s disco-rock madness just waiting for you. Consider this CD to be a gateway drug to a longtime obsession with collecting these soundtracks—we did.
