Cinevox Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
In the mythology of classic horror movie soundtracks, few match the mystical wonder of Goblin’s undisputed masterpiece. There have been plenty of opportunities to reacquaint yourself with Suspiria over the years, but this special 40th anniversary edition is for the die-hard (and deep pocketed) fans. As well as the full vinyl edition of the original album there’s a 10” of previously unheard material from the strongest era of the Italian maestros, plus the CD version and bonus reading and viewing material thrown in for good measure.
This is vital for all those with a passion for film scores. Cinevox was founded in 1966 in Italy and has since released well over 200 soundtracks. Cinevox 5 is a celebration of the label, bringing together five of its most illustrious composers and their finest compositions in this special box set. Morricone, Ciprianit, Goblin, Bixio, Tempera, Frizzi and Umiliani are given a coloured 7” vinyl each for the limited and numbered box set of 500 copies. A true epic celebration of the label and its artists.

Rino de Filippi is one of those undercover maestros of library music that Italy is so good at producing. Oriente Oggi (a collection dating from 1972) finds him producing with an ‘Oriental’ theme in mind. Needless to say this has been long out of print, so relish this vinyl reissue on Cinevox.
The Fine Machine
Cinevox dig out a super rare slice of sleazy Italian library funk. The Fine Machine released Habitat in 1972 and it has been almost impossible to find ever since. Groovy breakbeats are combined with flutes, organs and fuzzed-out electric guitar to create a trippy piece of multi-instrumentalist psychedelia.
Piero Umiliani is one of those premium Italian library music composers, but Effetti Musicali is something he produced more for his own artistic satisfaction than for the library archives. That means this one is extra weird, which means it is extra great! Psychedelic 60’s keyboard wizardry, back in print at last (in a limited edition of 500) from Cinevox.
From the more hardcore cut of George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead by Dario Argento come the startling soundtrack by Goblin. Titled Zombi, the film is more explicit than the original without the library music favoured by Romero, changed for a more thrilling and menacing feel to the re-cut film. Reissue on 180g vinyl on AMS with a poster and movie postcards.
