We continue our classic CR (Collector Releases) series with this first-ever release of Carlo Savina's score for the Western movie I TRE DEL COLORADO (1965, CANDADIAN WILDERNESS), directed by Amando de Ossorio and starring George Martin, Diana Lorys, Luis Martin and Santiago Rivero. The Italo-Western genre had just exploded, but some productions were still inspired by the Hollywood canon. For this production, we find ourselves on that trail with a distinctly spectacular film that tells a story involving Indians and kidnappings.

The score composed by M° Savina, a fine musician who has given so much to Italian cinema of the 20th century, is in line with the description above, exemplifying a style in which strings and spacious arrangements for full orchestra predominate. Surely a great rediscovery, it confirms once again how much this marvelous artist has contributed to the Eighth Art through his wonderful music.

The 34th release in the DDJ series is dedicated to a living icon in the film music world, M° Nico Fidenco, and his score for the movie ZOMBI HOLOCAUST (1980, DR. BUTCHER M.D.), directed by Marino Girolami and starring Ian McCulloch, Alexandra Delli Colli, Sherry Buchanan, Peter O'Neil and Donald O'Brien.

ZOMBI HOLOCAUST raised the stakes of zombie and cannibal exploitation by throwing both concepts into the same movie. It was one of the goriest splatter movies of its time and required the talent of a composer, chameleonic as few others can be, capable of going from cartoon main titles to scores for soft-core movies with agility and aplomb; fear of failure is easily dismissed.

Maestro Fidenco created an astonishing score, extremely effective considering the savage images full of the hungry undead. The soundtrack is based on electronic essentialism, with rhythms sometimes restored from prior works (such as those for the Black Emanuelle series) and an incredibly dry and operative use of synthesizers with great sonic yield.

A masterpiece dedicated to the visionary genius of this talented and foresighted artist, it's a righteous release in a series that gave life to other Fidenco scores such as PORNO HOLOCAUST and which is now finally available for your unsuspecting ears.

The 7th release in the series dedicated to the great scores composed by M° Piccioni features a cinematic meeting of the great Maestro with Alberto Lattuada, director of CUORE DI CANE (1976, DOG'S HEART), starring Max Von Sydow, Eleonora Giorgi, Mario Adorf and Cochi Ponzoni.

Set in the Soviet Union of the 1920s, the movie presented a new challenge for M° Piccioni, namely how to score the vicissitudes of a character engineered in a laboratory, half man, half dog. The eclecticism of this extraordinary artist, confronted with a difficult task, is the feature that will enable him to produce an amazing score, full of Russian classicism and the experimental styles typical of the composer. A real phenomenon, over the top, providing quality proof that, we are sure, will not delude anybody, from hardcore Piccioni fans to casual film music lovers.

Plus these collaborations with partner labels:




We continue the series dedicated to TV series with the great Maestro Bruno Nicolai's score for ELEONORA (1973), a two-part miniseries directed by Silverio Blasi and starring Giulietta Masina, Giulio Brogi and Roldano Lupi. Set in the middle of the 19th century, it's the story of a young Milanese girl, her unconventional boyfriend and her difficult relationship with her father.

Symphonic, romantic, and nostalgic, Nicolai's music is, as usual, of great quality and class, featuring one of the most evocative themes ever composed by the Maestro.

L'INDUSTRIALE is a movie directed in 2011 by Giuliano Montaldo and starring Pierfrancesco Favino and Carolina Crescentini. It tells the story of Nicola (Favino), whose social life is nearly bankrupt. The same can be said about his love life. He patches things up the best way he can and everything seems to return to normal, but there are secrets in Nicola's past…

The score composed by Andrea Morricone is one of the most involving scores of recent years, perfect in sustaining the movie, which was edited with great proficiency. Elegant in timbre and musically expressive, it was written with great symphonic, nostalgic and suggestive sensibility.
Surely a CD that sustains operatic valor, it enters the canon of great orchestral soundtracks for Italian cinema.

The movie, directed in 2010 by Gian Paolo Cugno with Raul Bova and Maria Grazia Cucinotta, follows the ups and downs of two Sicilian brothers from the ‘50s through the ‘80s, dealing with emigration, controversy and terrorism in a kaleidoscope of events with Italy in the background.

The score by M° Paolo Vivaldi, varied and orchestral, offers a beautiful array of themes that were often arranged to highlight a particular instrument or group of instruments. Suggestive and rich, it's a great addition to your discography dedicated to the music of cinema!

Fine looking set of releases Josh. Samples? I'll be checking them as soon as I'm done with Der Name Der Rose.

Coincidentally, speaking of Der Name Der Rose, I'm about 80 pages deep into Umberto Eco's novel and loving it so far. I saw the film many years ago and enjoyed it, but haven't managed to find a copy of Horner's score for a decent price. Would love to spin it while reading the novel. If any label owners are reading, please reissue a remastered CD!

As for samples of these BEAT releases, there are none as of yet, but in the meantime, check out this wicked suite from Nico Fidenco's ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST:

Thanks Josh! That's quite a read. Enjoy! I'll see what I can do Le Nom de la Rose wise.

Shouldn't the Nicolai be added to the thread title?
Maybe it's because of the "collaboration with partner labels", I see the other 3 are already listed @ Rosebud but not "Eleonora"

"Geminus" then "Vita Di Michelangelo" and this one, glad the Edipan vaults are open for good.

It's one of my all-time favorite horror scores. This expanded/remastered presentation is a dream come true for me. Can't wait to hear the previously-unreleased tracks.

I am mostly happy for Savina I 3 del Colorado, because I like the genre and composer. I guess I didn't understand the clues very well since I thought the composer was at end of his career.

Piccioni is great too. I was hoping they would stay in the 60s-period, but I guess even if we are towards the end of the series, this is not the end of Piccioni releases!

The Nicolai is a great one although I already have a clean LP rip.

My thought exactly. Although I probably will buy 'Eleonora' anyway, being a huge Nicolai fan.

I can recommend this CD and the other Edipan title mentioned above, 'Eleonora', to Nicolai (and Italian film music) fans: you will not be disappointed smile
