the one that would rock the house would be a release of The Valachi Papers!!!

when those sound samples were posted, people would take proper notice of him then!!

He wrote some beautiful melodies. My favorite is his theme from A Reason To Live, A Reason To Die.
Strongest at the 3:54 mark. Doesn't sound like a typical spaghetti western score.

Absolutely, Riz had great technique on westerns all genres really quite a smoothy, some say he had similarities too Morricone coz they both worked many genre's that were similar type movies, but i don't hear their tones cross, try "Old Shatterhand" & "Day of Anger", Joan

All-good, Joan.

You're correct about Riz not being very-pasta, Riz showed glimmers of it for Spags but it wasn't his comfort-zone, the Day of Anger is a very-strong-Spag but you wouldn't think so much with Riz's more westernized palette.

Not one but two Ortolani albums to close out year 2019!
Both are late-'70s vintage ... and both on Digitmovies:


Un dramma borghese (Mama Mimi)



plus another bare-backed female in Gegè Bellavita

Quartet has some available, minus one added to bolster my scant Ortolani collection.

I'm wondering about BEAT's I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072/La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco science fiction horror pairing. Could it be the spices to which Ortolani goes well?

Recently, I've been pondering upon how Ortolani was one of the few composers whose calibre of output during the 1980s held its own against their music written during earlier decades. Unlike Elmer B. or Goldsmith, Ortolani & Stanley Myers & Duhamel seemed to flourish in the '80s and issue soundtracks that can be as good as their '60s works.

TUAREG might be my favorite Ortolani album thus far ... but these latest offerings from Beat Records disappoint me.
Disc 1 is basically tolerable but Disc 2 is quite a letdown by my standards. While this album appears to be selling well @ Intrada or Dusty Groove,
I would not personally recommend it.

Andrea Doria-74 may be my favourite. Sorry to read about the new Beat is disappointing. There has been steady Ortolani releases recently, perhaps something more palatable is amongst them.

Thanks to Quartet for adding to the revival.

L'Invasione 1970


Only 300! This would also make a fine LP for vinyl junkies.
