Riz Ortolani Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Riz Ortolani, one of those wonderful behind-the-scenes Italian library-and-film composers, wrote the accompaniment to the crime flick Si puo essere piú bastardi dell’ispettore Cliff? in 1973. It’s a super-funky dirty joyride of a score that’s guaranteed to put smiles on faces and struts in walks, yet it has never before been released in full! This disgrace is now righted by Four Flies' issuing of the full session.

A forgotten classic from the extensive back catalogue of Riz Ortolani: his soundtrack to giallo film The Etruscan Kills Again, which has never previously been sighted on vinyl. Big drama, some jazz action, grand strings, big romantic themes, spooky cues: this set has got it all! Remastered audio. On Arrow Records.
A rare and gorgeous obscurity from the never-ending depths of the 1970’s Italian film soundtrack world. This one is from a 1971 crime caper named Confessione Di Un Commissario Di Polizia Al Procuratore Della Repubblica, and Riz Ortolani does an excellent job conjuring up funky action sounds and brassy tension. Really lovely stuff, made available on 180g vinyl by Four Flies.
La Danza Macabre is a 1964 Italian horror film that, in English, is named Castle Of Blood. Suitably, the soundtrack, produced by Riz Ortolani, is a dramatic, nerve-wracking rollercoaster ride of spookiness, something well worth listening to on its own. Remastered from the original tapes, and in a gatefold sleeve with poster-themed artwork.

Nella stretta morsa del ragno is a big dramatic Italian horror movie from 1971. Any Italian horror flick from this period (particularly one that features Klaus Kinski) naturally needs a cult-friendly soundtrack, and Riz Ortolani has delivered that in spades with this spooky heavyweight accompaniment. Edition of 500 blood-red LPs on Dagored.
Non si sevizia un paperino is the name of the film soundtracked here: worryingly, that translates to ‘Don’t torture a duckling’... But Riz Ortolani is a beautiful sweeping symphonic thing scored for grand orchestra: thoroughly cinematic. This is the first time that the entire soundtrack (as opposed to extracts) has been released on vinyl, thanks to AMS Records.
The slinky soundtrack to the shock horror film Cannibal Holocaust gets a vinyl release from Death Waltz and One Way Static Records. A strikingly beautiful collection that juxtaposes dramatically with the horrendous graphics of the film. Out on red vinyl LP w/ poster from Death Waltz and One Way Static.
Antonio Margheriti’s 1963 film La Vergine Di Norimberga is a great old horror picture, and the soundtrack by Riz Ortolani is just as great. Fully orchestrated creepy Italian sixties aesthetic: what’s not to like? Reissue of the extremely rare original vinyl edition, remastered from analogue master tapes, on Contempo.
A remastered release from the late Riz Ortolani (Cannibal Holocaust, The Valachi Papers), the original soundtrack to Il Consigliori directed by Alberto De Martino. Crime brass explosions, solid funk warfare and all out Italian romance all feature on this beautiful sounding record. Fall in love with violence. Out on LP.
