Updates...

The lack of updates have been due to lacking health on my part. I will make up for it, starting later tonight. Also, anyone know how to actually add the comments you guys write to the site without needing to publish them manually (i didn't think i had any comments at all, which kinda made me sad, but then when i looked around i had hundreds, i just needed to publish them. I would prefer if that could be done automatically? Anyone?)

Goblin - Patrick Vive Ancora (1980)

For all ye Goblin fans out there. Personally I'm more into the softer sounds of the likes of Morricone, Piccioni, Umiliani, Ortolani and many others, but this movie is NOT to miss. Directed by Mario Landi, of Giallo A Vanezia (1979) fame, Patrick Still Lives is a sleazetale containing all elements of the genre. The Shriek Show DVD, released 2003, is very nice, but if you decide to pick this up, be sure to get the uncut edition and not the "general release".

Tracks:
1. Patrick
2. Transmute
3. Bagliori Di Luce
4. Visioni
5. Snip Snap
6. Metamorphosi
7. Follie
8. Vibrazioni
9. Metamorphosi 2 Parte
10. Transmute
11. Visioni
12. Metamorphosi
13. Patrick
14. Transmute
15. Bagliori Di Luce

Lo Strano Vizio Della Signora Wardh (1970)

Sergio Martino's first entry in the giallo genre is definitely one of the better ever made. Starring Edwige Fenech in the title role as Julie Wardh, and ofcourse (we're talking Sergio Martino, after all!) co-starring George Hilton and Ivan Rassimov, the plot will keep you on the edge right up until the end. The music, composed by Nora Orlandi, enhances the mood of this movie very effectively. Favourite tracks on this soundtrack: the Dies Irae tracks and Body Fox (track 27). Enjoy!

Tracks:
1. Main Version
2. Main Title
3. Edwige Hammond Pleasure
4. The Pleasure Of Pleasure
5. Dies Irae
6. The Strange Vice
7. Obscure Remembering
8. The Strange Vice

Vampyros Lesbos (1971)

The world of Jess Franco is a mad one. With a filmography (as a director) spanning some 180+ movies (some say 200+, I doubt anyone really has any exact figures), he made his first movies in the 1950s. From right-out horror entries like The Secret Of Dr. Orloff (El Secreto del Dr. Orloff, 1964) to erotic sleaze (although good ones) like Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun (Die Liebesbriefe Einer Portugiesischen Nonne, 1977) to entries in the cannibal genre (Mondo Cannibale, 1980, among others) and every concievable genre in between (WIP, zombies, giallo-ish, crime, surreal), his trademark has more or less been to combine horror and eroticism. Among his best movies, beyond the first two mentioned above, Justine (1969), Eugenie (1970), Eugenie de Sade (1970 - all three of whom is based on the writing of the Marquis de Sade), and A Virgin Among The Living Dead (Christina, Princesse De L'érotisme, 1973) deserves to be mentioned. And he's still making 'em! Frequently casting his wife, Lina Romay, the last one I saw was Snakewoman, which was released just last year. Also among his best is Vampyros Lesbos from 1971, starring the beautiful but unfortunately short-lived Soledad Miranda. I usually call this genre "psychadelic 60s", as it always features some very good psychadelic, groovy music (another hilarious entry in this cathegory is Kiss Me, Monster! from 1969, in which the opening credits actually bounces in tune with the music!). Anyway, Vampyros Lesbos is definitely worth checking out if you havn't done so already. The DVD is available in nice editions as both PAL and NTSC. Until you pick it up, however, enjoy the soundtrack, composed by Manfred Hübler and Siegfried Schwab, with a little help from Jess Franco himself.

Tracks:
1. Droge CX9
2. The Lions And The Cucumber
3. There's No Satisfaction
4. Dedicated To Love
5. People's Playground (Ver. 1)
6. We Don't Care
7. People's Playground (Ver. 2)
8. The Ballad Of A Fair Singer
9. Necromania
10. Kamasutra
11. The Message
12. Shindai Lovers
13. The Six Wisdoms Of Aspasia
14. Countdown To Nowhere

Mannaja (1977)

As promised in the last post, here is the score for Sergio Martino's Mannaja. Also by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, the style is the same as the Keoma soundtrack, which suits the movie very well. I believe this was the last successful western made in Italy. Later attempts, i.e. Ritorno di Django, 1987, more or less flopped and the genre died out.

Tracks:
1. Wolf
2. The Ransom
3. Axe And Angela
4. Loneliness
5. The Casino-Saloon
6. Axe Is Back
7. The Kidnapping
8. Axe And McGowan
9. Seeking Revenge
10. Debra
11. No Gold...Only Stones
12. Snake
13. The Hatchet
14. Out Of The Tunnel - Finale

Keoma (1976)

I believe there'll be more of a mix between Morricone and other composers from this point on. Hence dropping the "bonus" tag, here is the score for Enzo G. Castellari's late and violent western, Keoma. This one, and Sergio Martino's (somewhat successful) attempt at cashing in on it (Mannaja, 1977 - coming in the next post), could be considered to be the last dying breath of the italian westerns. Franco Nero stars as the half-breed who returns to his home city after the civil war, only to find it under control of a gang of vicious thugs. I think you can all imagine what happens. The score, composed by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, is beautiful and haunting.

Tracks:
1. Keoma (Instrumental)
2. In Front Of My Desperation
3. Dusty Banjo (Pt. 1)
4. Keoma (Harmonica)
5. Piano And A Beer
6. In Front Of My Desperation (2)
7. Waiting (Instrumental)
8. Dusty Banjo (Pt. 2)
9. Keoma (Vocal)

Chi l'ha vista morire? (1972)

Who Saw Her Die is one of the better giallos imo. It seem people either hate or love this flick, there's no middle thing. Starring George Lazenby and Anita Strindberg as the pair who's trying to track down the murderer of their child, Morricone used a childrens choir for the soundtrack, something that works very effectively. Its a typical example of Morricone-genious of the time. These mp3's is from the CEM EP originating from 1979 I believe. Digitmovies released the soundtrack on CD in mid-july this year (same tracks as on the LP release), if you love this score I strongly urge you to buy that release.

Tracks:
1. Chi L'Ha Vista Morire?
2. No Ghe' Piu' Bel Cantar Della Sera
3. La Bela Riposava
4. Il Girotondo Delle Note
5. La Mia Mama
6. Il Gioco Delle Vocali
7. Dindon Campanon
8. El Primo Baso
9. Canto Della Campana Stonata
10. Solo Grida
