We are pleased to release the complete edition OST by Benedetto Ghiglia for the drama ''Psychout for Murder'' (''Salvare la
Faccia'') for the absolute first time on CD.
Benedetto Ghiglia (Fiesole, December 27, 1921 - Rome, July 4, 2012) was able to represent the young protagonist in the film
through music with a swing motif sung in English by a female voice. It's introduced by dissonant strings, and then develops into a
romantic and dramatic crescendo for orchestra and choir (Tr.1) and then into a baroque theme in rock beat (Tr.2). The composer
also wrote a wild shake for the various dance scenes, such as when the young beatniks show up at the business magnate's villa
(Tr.5, Tr, 8, Tr.10), and the scene with the hippie protestors (Tr.14) where the Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni give an incredible
performance (much like that of the advertisement of a famous brand of textile fibers in 1967/1968 which had music composed by
Ghiglia). The composer created the perfect atmosphere for the time period of the film in which the girl with an angelic face and
rebellious soul vindictively manipulates the people around her like puppets after being forced by her father to pretend she was
crazy in order to cover up a scandal. The dark side of the story is emphasized by psychedelic crime adventure music with
harpsichord, percussion, organ, female sighs (Tr.3) and rhythmic experimental jazz (Tr.13, Tr, 15, Tr.20, Tr.26).
Originally C.A.M. had published an EP single (AMP 56) with two tracks in mono which we've included as bonus tracks: "Love your
neighbor" (side A) and "Una faccia da salvare " (side B) which are also found in the original stereo mix. For our CD (total running
time 73:53 minutes) we had access to the master tapes in mono and in stereo from the original recording session, which allowed us
to use everything that had been recorded for the film, apart from one version of the baroque theme which was sung in English by
the author of the lyrics. This was created separately only for the re-edited version, with added scenes, for the American market.
This album is a tribute to the recovery and preservation of the musical art of Benedetto Ghiglia.
Directed in 1969 by Edward Ross (Rossano Brazzi). Starring: Adrienne Larussa, Rossano Brazzi, Nino Castelnuovo, Paola
Pitagora, Alberto de Mendoza, Néstor Garay, Renzo Petretto, Valentino Macchi, Idelma Carlo, Jorge Guillermo Contini, Nerio
Bernardi, Marcello Bonini Olas, Julia Tanzi.
Licia Brignoli, the daughter of a well known business magnate, is photographed at a brothel with her boyfriend Mario, who had
arranged the whole ordeal to use as blackmail. In order to avoid a scandal, Licia's father pays Mario 20 million and passes Licia off
as crazy and commits her to a mental institution. Once Licia is released, she returns home to take her revenge.

We are releasing for the absolute first time on complete edition CD the OST by Giovanni Fusco for the Peplum film ''The Goddess
of Love'' (original title: ''La Venere di Cheronea'').
Giovanni Fusco (October 10, 1906 Sant'Agata de 'Goti, - June 1, 1968 Rome) wrote a symphonic score for orchestra and choir
which he entrusted to the masterful conductor, Carlo Savina. His main source of inspiration for this score was surely Iride's beauty
(and actress Belinda Lee who interprets her). Maestro Fusco created orchestral passages with a moving love theme which are
introduced in the opening credits (Tr.1 ) and then reprised several times throughout the OST (Tr 3, Tr 4, Tr 5, Tr 9, Tr 10, Tr 12, Tr
13) and contrasted with a battle theme (Tr.6, Tr.7 , Tr.8, Tr.14, Tr.16, Tr.17). We've also included the track in the alternate ending
from the French version of the film (Tr.21). For this CD (total duration 72:55 minutes), we were able to access the mono master
tapes from the recording session so we could use every note recorded. The recovery and preservation of this CD from the Golden
Age is a tribute to the musical art of Giovanni Fusco.
Directed in 1957 by Giorgio Rivalta. Starring: Belinda Lee, Massimo Girotti, Jacques Sernas, Elli Parvo, Claudio Gora, Camillo
Pilotto, Luigi Tosi, Arrigo Peri, Giuseppe Lo Giudice, Secondo Maronetto, Furio Meniconi, Armando Annuale, Claudio Biava, Franco
Cobianchi, Enzo Fiermonte, Giulio Falcer, Paolo Gozlino.
Greece is at war with Philip of Macedonia. Luciano, captain of the Macedonian Army, gets wounded in action and is rescued by
Iride, a model of extraordinary beauty who poses for the sculptor Prassitele. Iride takes Luciano to the sculptor's home where he
falls in love with her. Until that point, Prassitele had only considered Iride a model who he used for inspiration to create the statue of
Aphrodite, but now he too feels passionately about the young woman. Iride decides to run away with Luciano and to try to return to
the Greek camp. Prassitele then decides to take revenge on the couple by telling the Greek soldiers about the two escapees. The
soldiers chase them and shoot Luciano with an arrow. He is believed to be dead so Iride is sent back to Prassitele's studio. She
tries to forget about Luciano by seeing other men. Meanwhile the Macedonians continue advancing and Prassitele is killed by the
soldiers. After some time, Iride returns to Prassitele's house and while contemplating the unfinished statue of Aphrodite, an alive
and well Luciano shows up. Iride confesses to him that she has been with other men and then tries to kill herself, but Luciano
forgives her and affirms his love for her.

Diesen Soundtrack habe ich noch als Schallplatte aber jahrelang nicht mehr gehört. Jezt nach der Begutachtung der CD bin ich doch einigermaßen positiv überrascht. Dass hier ein Synthsizerscore für einen Zeichentrickfilm gewählt wurde, macht erstmal stutzig. THE PLAGUE DOGS ist erstmal ein sehr naturalistischer und bedrückender Film. Und es ist aus meiner Sicht einer der besten und erschütterndsten Filme der 80er Jahre. Die Landschaften, die Menschen und Tiere stehen ganz im Kontext der hoffnungslos-tragischen Geschichte der beiden aus einem Versuchslabor entflohenen Hunde und werden aus ihrer Perspektive gezeigt. Die synthetisch-kalte Musik besitzt keinerlei Wärme und nur selten wird es etwas verspielter (wie in "The Change" mit dem Kronos-Quartett und Vivaldi-Anleihen). Gleeson fängt auf diese Weise sehr überzeugend die Gefühlswelt der Hunde (die Landschaften erstmal als fremd und feindselig wahrnehmen) und ihre Situation musikalisch ein. Und das funktioniert auch als Album sehr gut. Gleeson war maßgeblich an der Umsetzung des "Apocalypse Now"-Scores beteiligt, und manch eine der geisterhaften Klangflächen weißt auch gewisse Parallelen auf. Mit dem Unterschied, dass mir PLAGUE DOGS um einiges besser gefällt.

Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com presents the original motion picture soundtrack to the IMAX films POLYNESIAN ODYSSEY and ALAMO: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM, both composed by Merrill Jenson and performed by The National Philharmonic Orchestra of London.

Merrill Boyd Jenson has specialized, not entirely but in large part, in documentaries and IMAX films shown at museums and American historical sites. The film scores collected on this album are excellent examples.

The 1988 IMAX film, ALAMO: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM had been commissioned for The Alamo historical site in San Antonio, Texas, where it was shown for many years. Jenson counts this score among his own favorites. The main theme that opens and concludes the score is a breathtaking piece of music, with an elegant structure that reflects a sense of Americana through its harmonic phrasing, while reflecting with the military connotations of the battle via a martial snare drum; it is a score that breathes heavily the elegance of pastoral Americana. 

1991’s POLYNESIAN ODYSSEY, also filmed in the IMAX format, was commissioned by the Polynesian Cultural Center to be shown at its theme park and museum in Laie, Oahu in Hawaii. Through vivid, majestic images, POLYNESIAN ODYSSEY told the history of the Polynesian Islands and their peoples; Jenson’s score matched the film’s grand, large format visuals with vivid, eloquent music, from the pageantry of its resplendent choral excursions to the historical and ethnic flavorings that support much of the music’s layered orchestrations. Both ALAMO and POLYNESIAN ODYSSEY were recorded in England with The National Philharmonic of London.

Working on these nonfiction films, and many others, has given Jenson an intuitive respect for history and cultures other than his own. Writing emotionally-tinged music for significant events in human history provides a unique sense of fulfillment, and has inspired music that is both meaningful and cinematically effective. “It’s been rewarding to help viewers realize the greatness of the migration of the Polynesian people, and the greatness of their culture. And with ALAMO, the stories of heroes who died for our country should be told. I am proud to be part of both of these stories.”

Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring these excellent scores to compact disc – ALAMO as a reissue, POLYNESIAN ODYSSEY for the first time. Both scores have been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland with exclusive liner notes by author Randall D. Larson, with the participation of the composer. POLYNESIAN ODYSSEY/ALAMO: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM is released in a limited edition of 500 units. The CDs, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, are expected to begin shipping on the week of November 1st.

Neu von Music Box: Retrospective Jean Musy


Remastered edition including 20 previously unreleased tracks. 
12-page CD booklet with French and English liner notes by Nicolas Magenham. 
Limited Edition of 500 units. 

Music Box Records is pleased to present, for the first time on CD, a retrospective dedicated to French composer Jean Musy and his best works composed for the screen (Cinema and television) spanning three decades. 

Jean Musy started working in the 1960s and is known primarily as arranger and accompanist for many famous French singers (Joe Dassin, Barbara, Nicole Croisille, Yves Duteil, Françoise Hardy, Mireille Mathieu, Charles Aznavour, to name a few). He is also credited on over a thousand 45 rpm records and two hundred albums. Most notable is his involvement with French composer Francis Lai, for whom he arranged numerous soundtracks in the late 1970's (Bilitis, International Velvet, Passion Flower Hotel). 

This retrospective brings to light less well-considered or well-known films. This present album also highlights his close collaboration with some French directors (one-time collaboration such as Clair de femme, directed by Costa-Gavras and long-time collaborator director Jean-Claude Brisseau such as L'Ange noir ) and some very popular films (the cult film Papy fait de la résistance aka Gramps Is in the Resistance) and TV series (Pause-café). Jean Musy undoubtedly knows how to adapt to very different artistic universes while still retaining his own unique touch. 

The CD comes with a 12-page booklet with liner notes by Nicolas Magenham, based on a new interview with Jean Musy

La notte brava - Piero Piccioni


For the absolute first time on complete edition CD, we are releasing the OST by Piero Piccioni for the drama "The Big Night" (aka "Bad Girls Don't Cry," original title "La Notte Brava"). 
Piero Piccioni (Turin, December 6, 1921 - Rome, July 23, 2004) wrote and directed this score where jazz and blues create the right atmosphere for the young protagonists of the story. Originally, not a single note was released from this prestigious soundtrack. Our CD, lasting a total of 70:27 minutes, was possible thanks to the mono master tapes from the original recording session. 
Maestro Piccioni composed a recurring main score which is introduced in the opening credits (Tr.1) and reprised in different versions: slow for bassoons (Tr.4), with horns (Tr.5), a fast swing (Tr.17) and with the addition of female voices (Tr.21). Piero Piccioni alternates this with numerous dance melodies like the mambo (Tr.2, Tr.12, Tr.26), rock'n'roll (Tr.3), swing (Tr.7), tango (Tr.20, Tr. 25) and the song with a female voice, "Hello you," (Tr.9, Tr.24) which is reprised in an instrumental version (Tr.18, Tr.29). The inner side of the main characters is emphasized by very evocative passages like in Tr.14, Tr.15, Tr.19. This album is another masterpiece by Piero Piccioni which has finally been recovered and preserved on CD forever. 
Directed in 1959 by Mauro Bolognini. Starring: Jean-Claude Brialy, Anna Maria Ferrero, Franco Interlenghi, Laurent Terzieff, Rosanna Schiaffino, Tomas Milian, Mylène Demongeot, Antonella Lualdi, Elsa Martinelli, Mimmo Poli, Marcella Valeri, Maurizio Conti, Sergio Palmisano, Franco Balducci, Mario Meniconi, Cristiano Miniello, Isarco Ravaioli. 
Scintillone (Brialy) and Ruggeretto (Terzieff) are two Roman working class men who are unemployed. After committing a robbery, they try to sell the stolen goods with the help of some other guys: Gino, nicknamed Bella-Bella (Interlenghi), and Supplizia (Lualdi) and Anna (Martinelli)- two prostitutes. After pocketing the money, the men entertain themselves with the women and then try to cheat them out of their money and leave them in the middle of nowhere. Once the three guys are back in town, they realize that the women had actually robbed them of all their money. After trying in vain to track them down again, they attempt to steal a camera out of a luxury car, which fails when the owner of the car arrives with his two friends. They end up in a fight, but then everyone makes peace and goes to the luxurious apartment of Achilles (Milian), the rich owner of the car. Bella-Bella goes around Achilles' apartment and then steals 200,000 lira and runs away with his two friends. Deciding how to divide up the money causes another fight and the money ends up with Scintillone, who takes Rossana (Schiaffino) to a night club. Ruggeretto has started looking for the two and arrives just in time to see his friend get arrested and taken away by the police. Ruggeretto and Rossana spend all of the money stolen from Achille's house. After taking Rossana back at dawn, Ruggeretto returns home and finds the last of the money while fumbling in his pockets. Disgusted, he throws it away. 

Là dove non battle il sole / Un animale chiamato uomo - Carlo Savina


We are pleased to release the OST by Carlo Savina for the Spaghetti Westerns "The Stranger and the Gunfighter" (original title: "Là dove non batte il sole")and "An Animal Called Man" (original title: "Un animale chiamato uomo")for the absolute first time on CD, in complete edition. 
Carlo Savina wrote an enjoyable OST lasting 40:08 minutes, dominated by three main themes. One is a vibrant orchestral motif in Western-style beat for the character of Dakota, the mature gunslinger played by Lee Van Cleef. It is introduced in the opening credits (Tr.1) and reprised in Tr.10, Tr.13, Tr.21. The second is an oriental style theme for the character of young Wong-Kiang (Lo) with sounds which are sometimes dramatic and heroic (Tr.2, Tr.6, Tr.7, Tr.8, Tr.15). And finally a pleasant love theme for Wong-Kiang and the beautiful Lia-Kua, where the wonderful voice of Edda Dell'Orso (Tr.9, Tr.12) chimes in. There is also no shortage of lounge music like a pop bossa (Tr.3), action music (Tr.19) and the guaranteed saloon pieces (Tr.11, Tr.18). For this recovery and preservation, the stereo master tapes from the original recording session were used. 
Directed in 1974 by Antonio Margheriti. Starring Lee Van Cleef, Leih Lo, Patty Shepard, Femi Benussi, Karen Yeh, Julián Ugarte, Erika Blanc, Goyo Peralta, Al Tung, Barta Barry, Alfredo Boreman, Paul Costello, Manuel de Blas, Anita Farra, Ricardo Palacios, Georges Rigaud, Lionel Stander. 
Wong, a wealthy Chinese banker living in California, gets killed by a thief (Dakota) who is trying to rob him. But in Wong's safe Dakota only finds a thousand dollars and pictures of four women. Meanwhile, a rich warlord who lives in China takes the Wong family hostage and threatens to kill them unless they give back all the money he had entrusted to Wong in hopes of getting rich in America. So Wong's nephew, Wong-Kiang, who is an expert wrestler, leaves for California to find his uncle's fortune. He teams up with Dakota to follow the clues to the fortune which are tattooed on the 4 women from the pictures. Eventually they manage to track down the women, the last of which is a Chinese girl named Lia-Kua (Yeh). Once Wong-Kiang is back in China, he finds the treasure inside a statue that his uncle had sent to China. After he returns the fortune to the warlord, his family is released and Wong-Kiang marries Lia-Kua. 

Carlo Savina wrote an upbeat OST lasting 24:29 minutes, where an amusing and light hearted motif comes through. It is introduced in the opening credits (Tr.22), and is then reprised slower and faster (Tr.23), and as a shake with organ (Tr.27). It is alternated with a romantic love theme with the voice of Nora Orlandi (Tr.25) as well as with saloon pieces (Tr.24, Tr.28, Tr.30). For this recovery and preservation, the stereo master tapes from the original recording session were used. 
Directed in 1972 by Roberto Mauri. Starring Vassili Karis, Gilberto Galimberti, Craig Hill, Carla Mancini, Paolo Magalotti, Gillian Bray, Omero Capanna, Sergio Serafini. 
Linguaveloce (fast tongue), named for his ability to throw punches even though he has a speech impediment, and Bill Manolesta come to Silver City, which is under the control of Mark Foster and his gang of money extortionists. Manolesta gets in a shooting contest against Foster and wins five hundred dollars and a beautiful girl, Yvette ("First Prize"), who had come from Paris with a hint of hope and a degree in medicine. Manolesta and Linguaveloce come up with a plan to contend with Foster by pretending to be his collectors. Linguaveloce has some doubts about the plan, but Manolesta convinces him to let him do it because he says he'll give back the ill-gotten gains. A series of fights with Foster and his gang follows, along with ambushes, brawls and some casualties. Foster is assassinated by his lieutenant and the two heroes kill off the rest of the gang, then give in to the wishes of the townsfolk who reward them but beg them to leave forever, fearing that they will turn from liberators into tyrants. Yvette goes with them.

Le aventure di Pinocchio (3 CDs, Re-Issue) - Fiorenzo Carpi


We rerelease, on a triple CD set, the complete OST and in full stereo by Fiorenzo Carpi for the TV drama, directed in 1972 by Luigi Comencini "Le avventure di Pinocchio" (aka "The Adventures of Pinocchio"). 
Based on the International novel by Carlo Collodi. The first episode of the six was transmitted by Italian TV on April 8, 1972. In addition to Comencini and Carpi, other great names are linked to this fabulous television program (produced by San Paulo Film, Cinepat, Rai TV, Bavaria Film, ORTF of Munich): Suso Cecchi D'Amico for the screenplay, Armando Nannuzzi for photography, Nino Baragli for editing, Massimo Patrizi for scenery, Piero Gherardi for costumes. This was the famous drama starring Nino Manfredi, Andrea Balestri, Gina Lollobrigida, Ciccio Ingrassia, Franco Franchi, Orazio Orlando, Lionel Stander, Ugo D'Alessio, Vittorio De Sica, Mario Adorf, Enzo Cannavale, Domenico Santoro, Carlo Bagno, Zoe Incrocci, Vera Drudi, Mario Scaccia, Jacques Herlin, Siria Betti, Nerina Montagnani, Luigi Leoni, Mimmo Olivieri, Pietro Entili, Mario Colombaioni, Riccardo Billi, Clara Colosimo. 
The carpenter Geppetto (Manfredi) makes a wooden puppet, which he names Pinocchio (Balestri). The Blue Fairy (Lollobrigida), his patron, immediately turns him into a real boy, asking him to promise her that he will be a "good boy", obedient and scholarly, a prop for his parents' old age. As the boy, has kept the lively and rebellious character of the puppet, and he gets up to all sorts of trouble, the Fairy turns him back into wood to punish him. The transformations will happen several times, and once, Pinocchio will even become a donkey. The story ends before the end of the book, that is when Geppetto and Pinocchio come out of the belly of the whale: almost a return to life, a final touch with reality. 
At the time the C.A.M. issued a 33 rpm (SAG 9038) containing eighteen tracks (38:07 minutes duration) and a 45 rpm single with two tracks (AMP 26). The album material was re-released in France on an LP (EMI Pathé 2C 064-13044) and on another vinyl with music and dialogues narrated by Genevieve Casile (Ades - Le Petit Ménestrel ALB 367). C.A.M. reissued on CD for the first time ever, the content of the vintage 33 rpm in 1991, in its series CAM'S SOUNDTRACK ENCYCLOPEDIA and in 2005 with a brand new music suite of minutes 8:31. For the production of our triple box set (total time 200:04 minutes) we were able to access the master tapes in full stereo of the Recording Session of the time which allowed us to use every note recorded in 1972, under the direction of the fabulous' orchestra conductor Bruno Nicolai (who had also handled the arrangements). An open sea of ​​music... we almost felt like the puppet Pinocchio who desperately swims in front of the monstrous jaws of the whale; experience of recovery, edit, sequence, and restoration really tiring and unprecedented for the rest of us, which led finally to the realization of our ambitious project. 
CD 1 (minutes 68:54) contains the material of the historic 33 rpm, followed by TV versions and alternate takes, CD 2 (minutes 62:54) continues with many other TV versions and alternate takes, the CD 3 (minutes 69:16) contains TV versions, alternate takes, and test versions sung by Andrea and Nino Manfredi Balestri with the orchestra of the brothers De Angelis (published on 45 rpm It ZT 7031). The magnitude of Fiorenzo Carpi and Bruno Nicolai is highlighted by the impressive number of different arrangements of the main themes (the most attentive audiophiles will notice even the presence of certain sonic atmospheres typical of Nicolai for the Italian Thriller!) That lead the listener into the magical world of Pinocchio, thanks to a popular flavour of music, strong in its extreme simplicity. An absolute masterpiece that wants to pay homage to Nino Manfredi in one of his most intense performances, the director Luigi Comencini and of course the musical art of Fiorenzo Carpi and Bruno Nicolai Good, long listen to you all!

Neben der bereits in einem Extra-Thread vorgestellten neuen Donaggio-CD haben Quartet Records am letzten Freitag auch noch zwei verlängerte Neuauflagen veröffentlicht:

Ultime grida dalla savana - Carlo Savina



Quartet Records and Gruppo Sugar presents an expanded and remastered CD of memorable mondo mayhem with music by Carlo Savina (L’assassino ha riservato nove poltrone, The Legend of Blood Castle, Simon Bolivar, L’ira di Achille)

Directed by original Mondo Cane cinematographer Antonio Climati in 1974 (together with editor Mario Morra), Ultime grida dalla savana was the cornerstone of the second mondo wave as it discusses the story of hunting from many different aspects, including the notorious Pit Dernitz lion mauling sequence.

Carlo Savina score follows mondo traditions by juxtaposing shocking visuals with great exotica and pop tunes. Besides the percussion-heavy segments for the raw hunting sequences, Savina also provides some lyricism with English language songs co-written with lyricist Gilbert Kapland: "My Love" is sung by Ann Colling during a political rally, while Kapland sings "Leave the Rest to Me" and "For You and Me."

A 40-minute LP of the soundtrack was released on CAM in 1974 and reissued later in CD by the same company (paired with the sequel Savana Violenta). For this premiere complete edition, we have included the remastered album program, and also another 40 minutes of previously unreleased tracks. Produced by Claudio Fuiano, the richly illustrated booklet includes liner notes by Gergely Hubai discussing the film, the composers and the score.


Savana violenta - Guido & Maurizio de Angelis



Quartet Records and Gruppo Sugar presents an expanded and remastered CD of memorable mondo mayhem with music by Guido and Maurizio de Angelis (Zorro, Orzowei, Sandokan, Killer Fish, Continuavano a chiamarlo Trinitá)

Based on originally shot material and outtakes from the Ultime Grida Dalla Savana, the follow-up entitled Savana Violenta (1976) is a more light-hearted and less-focused mondo film that discusses even more facets of the relationship between humans and animals - with a few shocking examples thrown in for good measure.

Popular brothers Guido and Maurizio de Angelis follows mondo traditions by juxtaposing shocking visuals with innocent-sounding tunes. Their most memorable contribution is “Let's Sing a Song”, an innocent children’s tune with lyricist Susan Duncan Smith providing a kindergarten's worth of fun. Brazilian percussionist / crossover artist Mandrake is giving credited contributions to the core.

A 40-minute LP of the soundtrack was released on CAM in 1976 and reissued later in CD by the same company (paired with the predecessor Ultime grida della Savana). For this premiere complete edition, we have included the remastered album program, and also another 37 minutes of previously unreleased tracks. Produced by Claudio Fuiano, the richly illustrated booklet includes liner notes by Gergely Hubai discussing the film, the composers and the score.

Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the premiere release of Bill Conti’s soundtrack to the 1999 Jean-Claude Van Damme action-comedy film INFERNO.

Conti scored fourteen films for director John G. Avildsen), beginning with ROCKY, a low-budget boxing film that smashed box office records, opened hearts, won awards, and started careers, including those of Avildsen and Conti. The composer scored fourteen films for Avildsen, their collaboration including such memorable pictures as THE KARATE KID series, SLOW DANCING IN THE BIG CITY, THE FORMULA, and NEIGHBORS. ROCKY had been their first, and INFERNO was their last. 

That film began under the title of COYOTE MOON and was intended to be a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1961 Samurai classic, YOJIMBO (the same source as Sergio Leone’s 1964 A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and Walter Hill’s 1996 Prohibition-era gangster film LAST MAN STANDING). INFERNO’s plot involved ex-Army vet Eddie Lomax (Jean-Claude Van Damme) who rides into a lonely, rough-and-tumble desert town on his 1950 Indian “Chief” motorcycle and quickly attracts the violent ire of the local toughs. Playing one gang off the other, Eddie choreographs the destruction of both gangs before motoring off into the sunset with the girl – something Toshiro Mifune, Clint Eastwood, nor Bruce Willis got to do in their iterations of the story!

Avildsen had added an element of Native American mysticism to the story with Danny Trejo’s character, who was supposed to be the ghost of Eddie’s Army buddy Johnny Sixtoes, who counsels and inspires him during his sieges against the gangs. Van Damme, who was also one of the producers, didn’t like that ghost element and had the film recut against Avildsen’s preference, eliminating the character’s being a ghost and largely confusing the plot and the characters’ connection in the process. The film wound up being released direct to video under the title INFERNO, while overseas audiences knew it as DESERT HEAT, but the film by any name was equally despised by critics and audiences alike.

But the element that received much more positive opinions over the years was Bill Conti’s musical score, a hard-hitting mix of country and blues rock and roll, keyboard synthesizers, a delicate love theme for acoustic guitar, and some compelling mystical music associated with what renamed of the Native Indian subplot. These elements come together in a lengthy, climactic showdown of furious intensity and motivic interaction which culminates the film in a wild melee of body slams, bone-crunching kicks, and staccato gunplay.

Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring this score to compact disc for the first time. The score has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland with exclusive liner notes by author Randall D. Larson, who examines the score and its various components in detail. INFERNO is released in a limited edition of 500 units. The CDs, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, are expected to begin shipping on the first week of December.

The first 50 copies will be autographed by composer Bill Conti.

Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the premiere CD release of Ken Thorne’s soundtrack to the 1985 Jackie Chan film, THE PROTECTOR.

After achieving success in Hong Kong, Jackie Chan attempted to conquer the American film market in 1980 with THE BIG BRAWL, directed by Robert Clouse, who’d had success with Bruce Lee in ENTER THE DRAGON and GAME OF DEATH. But Chan’s movie failed to ignite a favorable commercial regard at a time when audiences were eager for the hard-edged kung fu style advanced by Lee, who’d died unexpectedly in 1973. Chan’s more humorous style of martial arts just didn’t click. He tried once more in 1985 with THE PROTECTOR, directed by James Glickenhaus (THE SOLDIER, SHAKEDOWN, TIMEMASTER), but it too suffered from disappointing box office returns. It would take a few more years before Chan was able to emerge in the US as a superstar in his own right.

But THE PROTECTOR remains a fascinating stepping stone in Chan’s career and a tangible testimony to the actor’s unique cinematic style which audiences around the world have grown to admire. Glickenhaus, however, wanted to make a gritty R-rated crime thriller while Chan sought to steer the narrative into a vehicle for jaw-dropping fight sequences peppered with his own unique brand of slapstick humor. Glickenhaus’ vision won the day and, while not a commercial hit, eventually reached a degree of financial success when it was released to television and home video.

The film’s music was composed by English-born, Academy Award-winning composer Ken Thorne. Known for scoring an eclectic variety of films such as the underscore for The Beatles’ HELP! (1965),HOW I WON THE WAR(1967), INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU(1968), THE EVIL THAT MEN DO(1984), and TV’s RETURN TO LONESOME DOVE (1993), Thorne is probably best remembered for adapting John Williams’ themes from 1978’s SUPERMAN for the sequel scores of SUPERMAN II(1980), and SUPERMAN III(1983). Thorne pumps up the PROTECTOR with straightforward action music reflecting life on New York City’s mean streets. Featuring bass ostinati driven by low brass, sick-kicking drums, a dynamic horn section, and an arsenal of synthesizers modern to their day, Thorne blends electronica, funk, jazz, big band, pop, and a little bit of everything else into a propulsive and engaging score.

Dragon’s Domain Records is excited to bring this score to compact disc for the first time. The score has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland and features exclusive liner notes by composer and author Brian Satterwhite. THE PROTECTOR is released in a limited edition of 500 units. The CD, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, is expected to begin shipping on the first week of December.

Ende dieser Woche bringt Early Dawn Records die CD-Premiere des Album-Programms von Georges Garvarentz' Score für den Thriller Un beau monstre mit Helmut Berger, Virna Lisi und Charles Aznavour in den Hauptrollen. 



Greek born composer and conductor George Garaventz really complies with any expectations on his 1970 album for the French movie ,Un beau monstre" (A beautiful monster).

This is a rather atmospheric and moody effort and except for the opening tunes of both sides this is entirely instrumental despite a few wordless female choirs adding an even deeper atmosphere to the compositions.

The luscious arrangements and insistent melodies truly drag one into a colourful world of their own.

Pop, psychedelic with elements of Indian raga, chanson and orchestral music melt into another.

Sound and performance are of the highest order. Dreamy, dramatic and acid drenched sections follow each other in a rather short distance.

Allerdings muss ich die vorwarnen: Von beiden Scores existieren wohl keine vollständigen Master Tapes mehr, die fehlenden Tracks stammen von der Tonspur der Filme. Scheinen aber nicht all zu viele Stücke betroffen zu sein.

Quartet Records and TVE presents the world premiere release of the classic Spanish TV documentary series composed by Antón García Abril (Texas Addio, Fin de semana al desnudo, Il Cobra, Fortunata y Jacinta, the Blind Dead films) in a mammoth 4-CD set.

El Hombre y la Tierra (Man and Earth) was a television series about nature, presented and directed by naturalist Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente. It was originally broadcast from 1974 to 1981, interrupted when Rodriguez de la Fuente passed away in a helicopter accident while filming an episode in Alaska in 1980.

This series was a reference for future nature documentaries both in Spain and abroad (the series was distributed in several countries). The series inaugurated a new form of documentary and was divided into three parts: the Venezuelan Series (shot in Venezuela), the Iberian Fauna Series (shot in Spain), and the American Series (shot in Canada and Alaska); 124 episodes were filmed in total.

With a main theme that instantly became a pop culture classic in Spain, García Abril specifically wrote the music for several episodes, as well as a huge amount of reference themes to be used in others. Mostly written for symphony orchestra and chorus, the music includes echoes of Debussy and Ravel as well as risky experimentation between classics and pop—all handled with the composer’s characteristic sound. El Hombre y la Tierra is one of the great epic soundtracks in the television music of the seventies.

After more than three years of work (including an exhaustive search for elements and rights clearance), this masterpiece of Spanish film and TV music, much requested by many fans around the world, is finally available. Carefully restored and mastered by Chris Malone from the best possible sources provided by TVE and the composer (mostly in stereo, with some cues in mono), this project has been entirely supervised by Maestro García Abril and produced by Miguel A. Órdóñez, who also provides detailed liner notes.

Quartet Records and El Deseo present the premiere soundtrack release of the iconic Spanish comedy Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) celebrating the 30th anniversary of its film release.

Written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar in 1988 and starring Carmen Maura, Antonio Banderas, María Barranco, Rossy de Palma, Chus Lampreave and Fernando Guillén, the film is about a dubbing actress who encounters a variety of eccentric characters after embarking on a journey to discover why her lover abruptly left her. Hugely successful at the worldwide box office, the film was an Academy-Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.

The music was composed by Bernardo Bonezzi (Sin noticias de Dios, Mari del Sud, ¿Qué he hecho yo para merecer esto!), Almodóvar’s usual composer during his first period. Far from a comedy score, Bonezzi's music accompanies and envelops the character of Pepa (Carmen Maura) in the difficult moments that thread through the film as she searches for the lover who has abandoned her when he discovers she is pregnant. Bonezzi acknowledged it was a tribute to Bernard Herrmann and the Frank Skinner scores for the films of Douglas Sirk; it also includes a fun homage to Planet of the Apes by Jerry Goldsmith.

A selection of seven cues was included in the compilation “3 Films by Almodóvar” (Tabu Records) and “Almodóvar Early Films” (Silva Screen), but the official original soundtrack was never released. Now, we are proud to present the Bonezzi score in its entirety, mastered from the original tapes. The album also includes the key songs that open and close the film: “Soy infeliz” performed by Lola Beltrán, and the famous “Puro Teatro” by La Lupe.

Exclusive package designed by Juan Gatti (the designer of the original art and main titles for the film) includes liner notes by Pedro Almodóvar, Jose M. Benitez, Mario Vaquerizo and Diego Galán.

Drei neue CDs von Chris' Soundtrack Corner:

Si può essere più bastardi dell'Ispettore Cliff? - Riz Ortolani




Chris' Soundtrack Corner proudly presents for the first time the complete soundtrack to Massimo Dallamano's 1973 crime thriller, SI PUÒ ESSERE PIÙ BASTARDI DELL'ISPETTORE CLIFF? (which loosely translates as Can Anyone be More [of a] Bastard than Inspector Cliff?), also known by its American release title, MAFIA JUNCTION). The film features a powerful, jazz-based score composed by internationally-popular Italian film composer Riz Ortolani (1926-2014). 

Ortolani may be best known internationally for his easy-listening and lounge-pop soundtracks whose gently lyrical scores were as popular in Europe as well as the USA, but in fact he was an articulate and versatile composer whose career since 1961 and its 225+ film scores spanned every genre. His provocative scores for poliziottesco (Italian police thriller) films were authentically drawn from big band and modern jazz traditions, and MAFIA JUNCTION is a thoroughly credible and entertaining score that catches all the right elements of the genre. 

Serbian-born actor Ivan Rassimov plays American Narcotics officer Cliff Hoyst, who we soon learn is anything but an honest cop. Unlike most poliziottesco's tough, above-the-law but morally upright cops, Cliff plays two sides against a third, intending to walk away a rich man when it's all over. He's supposedly gone undercover as an enforcer for a drug smuggling crime boss but his inclination to follow his own agenda readily answers the question posed in the film's wordy Italian title: "Non c'è modo!" ["No way!"]. 

Riz Ortolani's score saturates MAFIA JUNCTION with a persuasive, propulsive, and totally absorbing pop/jazz score that both defined the genre as well as the flashy, charismatic, self-confident character of Inspector Cliff. There is one primary theme that runs throughout the score, two minor themes that appear in association with subordinate characters or situations, and four standalone tracks associated with individual sequences but are not repeated. 

This CD is the first release of Riz Ortolani's MAFIA JUNCTION score in its entirety. Only two tracks have been issued previously and as a bonus track we've also included Ortolani's full-length instrumental arrangement of the famously unattributed "Romance Anónimo" (Anonymous Romance), which is heard briefly in the film. The album is produced by Christian Riedrich and remastered by Stefan Betke. The CD is accompanied by a 12-page illustrated booklet designed by Aletta Heinsohn featuring detailed, exclusive notes on the film and its score by film music journalist Randall D. Larson, who deconstructs the score's elements in detail.



Scorticateli vivi - Stelvio Cipriani


1978's Scorticateli vivi is a cynical mercenary exploiter that was the last of four films Stelvio Cipriani scored for director Mario Siciliano. The film is best known in the US under the rather grotesquely alluring title Skin 'Em Alive, even though no one actually gets skinned alive in the movie; it is also known under its 1980 Philippines English language release title, Wild Geese Attack, in an attempt to suggest to theatergoers that it was a direct sequel to the 1978 Andrew V. McLaglen film The Wild Geese. While Scorticateli vivi was indeed inspired by the success of the McLaglen film, it's in no way narratively connected even though both pictures have to do with mercenaries operating in Africa. 

Scorticateli vivi is situated about the midway between the popularity and the waning of what has become known as Euro War films – this subgenre of European movies emerged in the early-1960s and petered out by the end of the '80s. Most of them were co-productions shared between two or three European studios, with Italy carrying the lion's share. 

Stelvio Cipriani's score ranges from vibes, traditional jazz, and bongo-driven percussion runs to rock beats, poignant electric guitar soloing, and driving bass. The music frequently shifts gears and changes palettes as if the composer is trying to keep up with, or make sense out of, the film's abrupt changes in tone. Several tracks that were written for Scorticateli vivi wound up being excised from the film and replaced with music Cipriani had written for earlier films, adding to the seeming disarray of musical material. But it's to Cipriani's credit that the score nevertheless works; there's a cohesiveness to it created by recurring bass rhythms and riffs and the confluence of harmonic jazz/pop sensibilities that allows the score to do what it needs to do in spite of the unbalanced pace with which the story is advanced. With his upbeat tempos and catchy tunes there's a commonality of purpose in the music that enables Cipriani to impart to the film a coherent musical soul that effectively drives its breakneck velocity. 

While the film may be forgettable (and that's been the consensus of most critics and online reviewers), Stelvio Cipriani's score remains quite a treasure. Its variety of musical styles and their engaging interaction as the story plays out is both effective and likeable. Only six of the tracks have been released before and only two of those commercially - the other tracks on this album from Chris' Soundtrack Corner are all previously unreleased. Many of Cipriani's score tracks were edited and shortened within the film, which makes presenting them at their full length on this world premiere release of the Scorticateli vivi score on CD especially gratifying

Buitres sobrela ciudad - Stelvio Cipriani


Avvoltoi sulla città – known in Spain and Latin America as Buitres sobre la ciudad, and translated from the Italian as Vultures Over The City – is a kinetic 1981 crime thriller film starring Maurizio Merli as a journalist investigating local Mafia activities. When he gets too close to the gangsters responsible for a local assassination, he winds up paying a terrible price – but revenge will be his by the time the last bloody corpse crumples onto the ground. 

This Spanish-Italian-Mexican co-production was filmed in Spain and directed by Gianni Siragusa, an Italian filmmaker known for rough and rugged action films, beginning with the 1976 Antonio Sabato euro-crime heist thriller (4 minuti per 4 miliardi/4 Billion In 4 Minutes); Avvoltoi sulla città was his second film; it was followed by the captive women exploiter Hell Behind Bars and its sequel, Hell Penitentiary (both 1984). Italian tough guy star Maurizio Merli plays journalist Mark; he was launched into stardom in the 1970s because he resembled star Franco Nero, which led to his becoming one of the poliziotteschi genre's most prominent actors, starring in almost a dozen of the distinctive Italian crime thrillers. Avvoltoi sulla città also features Mexican horror star Hugo Stiglitz as Spencieri's photographer, Lilli Carati as his girlfriend Isela, and American star Mel Ferrer in a small role as the local police commander. 

Since he left the world of jazz, where he first found professional success, and became a film composer in 1967, Stelvio Cipriani has adroitly navigated the stylistic idiosyncrasies of the Western, the horror thriller, the war film, the romantic drama, and the police thriller through each genre's distinct Italian interpretation. With Avvoltoi sulla città arriving quite late in poliziotteschi's prime (it would, in fact, be the composer's last film in the genre), Cipriani provided a thoroughly supportive score for Siragusa which bolsters the film's wild action and lends an assertive tonality to hero and villains alike. Cipriani's adeptness in arranging motifs is well evident in his score for Avvoltoi sulla città. The score is grounded in four recurrent themes, three of which are closely related in tone and style, and each is given a wide range of variations suited for different settings and situations, along with a handful of standalone cues for specific sequences unrelated to the developing thematic material. 

Chris' Soundtrack Corner is pleased to present Stelvio Cipriani's complete score to AVVOLTOI SULLA CITTA' here on a soundtrack album for the first time. The music is presented in its original film sequence, with one or two exceptions which were made for optimum listening pleasure.

Zwei neue Alben vom polnischen Label GAD Records:

Andrzej Korzynski - Orwo Years: Music from the Movies by Celino Bleiweiss



In the 70s, Andrzej Korzyński was a sought-after composer of film music. Not only in Poland, as he created equally interesting works in the German Democratic Republic. To back up this claim, take his long-lost, yet recently found, scores for four movies by Celino Bleiweiss.

These Andrzej Korzyński’s works, hitherto unknown outside of Germany, are a testimony to the unique imagination of the composer. The lyrical strings, pop-rock guitar themes, experimental synthesisers, tribal drums and early music stylistic elements? You will find it all here – performed with great gusto by musicians associated with the DEFA studios, directed by Manfred Rosenberg. The disc contains scores from TV films “Die schwarze Mühle” (1975), “Absage an Viktoria” (1977), “Ich Will Nach Hause” (1980) and “Wilhelm Meister Teatralische Sendung” (1982).

The entirety was remastered from the original tapes off the private archive of the composer’s. The booklet contains a brief outline of the artistic partnership between Korzyński and Celino Bleiweiss, as well as pictures of the film director.


Zycie Kamila Kuranta - Wojciech Gluch


The memorable adaptation of Zbigniew Uniłowski’s prose was one of the more interesting Polish TV series of the first half of the 80s. This is one of the most important achievements in the oeuvre of Wojciech Głuch – now available in its full glory as a remaster of the original tapes.

Although he has been living in Sweden for years, where he is active as a musician, Wojciech Głuch always guaranteed high quality of every Polish project in which he participated throughout the decades. He was a composer, director and pedagogue. He worked in the Teatr Rozmaitości and STS, created soundtrack to poetic TV shows and supervised the recording of the theme tune for “Pszczółka Maja” on behalf of the Studio Opracowań Filmowych. He also composed theatre and film music – one of his crowning achievements in this field is the soundtrack to the “Życie Kamila Kuranta”. Chamber music, full of lyricism and ascetic yet convincing arrangement, enriched with several excellent themes, ideally matching the plot, which takes place at the beginning of the 20th century.

It is the first time ever that the “Życie Kamila Kuranta” has been published on disc. The material was remastered from the original tapes recorded during the studio sessions, which tapes are kept in the archives of the TVP; besides the motifs known from the series, it contains music which was not included in the final version of the show. The booklet contains a brief outline of the score and stills of the series.

Das sieht sehr interessant aus. Werde ich mir beide wahrscheinlich holen. Demnächst also im "Osteuropa"-Faden. Danke für den Tipp!
