..... soundtrack than Gianni Ferrio's 'La Morte Risale a Ieri Sera' (Death Occurred Last Night)??????? The Mina vocals, that trumpet, the Hammond organ in the background.....

Answers on a postcard please. I've got a few Piccioni and Umiliani scores in mind and maybe a Morricone or two, but would be interested to hear suggestions.

Ps the film is on YouTube and the picture quality is brilliant, so watch it if you get the chance, it's worth it just for the opening title sequence and the song by Mina.

Yep a great track, but thr entire album???! I don't think so. Tentacoli by Cipriani would be a better shout as the entire album is pretty groovy

'La Morte Risale a Ieri Sera' is one of my favourite Italian crime scores. Very jazzy, but quite varied - with less repetition than some Italian releases. I love the brass, the flutes, the occasional harp and especially the great vibe playing. Anyone who likes big band should enjoy this one.

I've got "La Polizia Sta A Guardare" and it's ok but always sounds a little 'samey' to me. I like many of Cipriani's scores but some of his police/crime scores seem to meld into one; as if he phoned them in.

I would list several scores by either of the Pieros as being "groovier" than this one:

Five Dolls for an August Moon
Sweden Heaven and Hell
Camille 2000
The Tenth Victim
Seven Corpses for Scotland Yard.

I would add the Ferrio's "Death Walks at Midnight" may be groovier than this one.

Just for starters.

Can I have the main course and desert? When I said that I had some Umiliani and Piccioni scores in mind, those first four scores you list were very much in mind. I hadn't considered Seven Corpses, but thinking about it, whilst it has really groovy moments, for me, in its entirety, it doesn't match Death Occurred Last Night. I had also considered Death Walks as that has long been a favourite of mine, but Death Occurred just shades it for me..... Just...

Whilst I may have some Ferrio fans on here can anyone please tell me if the likelihood of Don't Turn the Other Cheek (1971) getting released and what the score is re Morricone's involvement and credits for thr score. Thanks

Phoned in? I wish 200 film composers could phone in scores as good as Polizia Sta A Guardare!!!

I think "Seven Corpses" offers a very consistent downtempo chill groove, and is not as stylistically shifting as the Ferrio score. It is almost like proto-electronica, and with its organ/electric piano combination grooving over a single chord (primarily), it is almost like a film music equivalent of Miles Davis's "In a Silent Way."

Totally with you on Seven Corpses.... I'm actually listening to it now. I have even sat through the film twice (and it's not a good film) just to hear the score and how it fits. And whenever that main theme starts up I just fade out

Don't know but it's probably a case of using a name that sells. EM in westerns sells.

As for funky Ferrio, what about the blood stained butterfly. Playing it now, it's even got a bit of funked up Tchaikovsky.

Or I Caldi Amori Di Una Minnorene, as it's getting a spin. Appropriately dressed, I'm wearing a lilac cravat, red flares with some yellow patches and platform shoes.

Danian, hope you don't mind but I have a question thst you may know with your professional hat on. Last July I posted about 40 Soundtrack mags in two separate parcels to a guy in Greece and they went missing. I contacted Royal Mail and got a letter today saying that they found the parcels, they have been returned by Greece to the UK and will be sent back to me. Once I get them I will use DHL to send them to the guy. But will Royal Mail reimburse me for the postage (£32) I paid for them not to get them to the guy in Greece (and yes his address definitely correct (it even had his tele no.on it) as I posted some stuff to the same address a month before)

Pretty tough for me to rank all of those late 1960s, early 1970s Italian scores as they were all so wonderful. I agree that this one is a touch "groovier" in a '60s vein than the other Ferrio giallo scores I've heard - in addition to the jazz influence, I detect a bit of '60s British/French pop in the arrangements.

That's a good one Mark. Firstly I'll say that I think royal mail are tighter than a gnat's chuff and stoopider than a room full of idiots. However there are ways to complain. Depending on your replies I would keep on at them with ' this is not on ' sort of things. They'll probably try and fob you off will a book of stamps. Explain to them what happened ( address correct, person exists etc). The problem you might have is that may have been the Greeks incompetence. So RM wouldn't be likely to pay there. But if it is possible to find out it was there fault keep at them. I wouldn't hold your breath though.

Back on topic. Thanks to this thread I have been spending some time on Gianni Ferrigoround . Another groove fest is La Morte Accarezza A Mezzonotte, baby

And the last of the night, before the whisky comes out is La Polizziotta. Still groove filled but a bit lighter/happier than the previous.
