NUDA - 21 exciting cuts from Italian sexy-comedy disco scene (1975-1981)

One for Phil and Ian - our resident 'Carry On' style couple. This is a collection of tunes taken from the 'golden age' of what seems to be quite a specific scene  - that of the Italian sexy-comedy-disco. Basically it's jazz funk, easy listening and disco made to soundtrack women getting teasingly undressed...in a comedy manner.. presumably.

Alessandro Alessandroni
Spontaneous

Four Flies re-issues one of the holy grails of the library music scene, after five years of careful research and exhumation. Spontaneous, recorded in the mid-Seventies by Italian composer Alessandro Alessandroni, returns to vinyl, with its mixture of soft rock, jazz and downtempo breaks ageing remarkably well in the subsequent four decades. 

Giuliano Sorgini
Africa Oscura

Originally made for the function of TV documentary score, Guiliano Sorgini’s Africa Oscura sees the composer explore his own take on African music and mythology. Sorgini has a background as interesting as it is extensive, working often in the field of soundtrack, largely for peculiar b-movies and horror. This LP, previously unreleased and salvaged by Four Flies Records, finds the composer at the height of his abilities.

Esterno Notte Vol. 2

'Esterno Notte Vol. 2' is the second release from Four Flies featuring jazz-funk, latenite breaks, cinematic prog and psychedelia from previously untapped Italian film music archives. A limited-edition release, this volume is dedicated to sounds designed for a mid-century cityscape full of action, car-chases and high-tension scenes set in smoky nightclubs.

Stelvio Cipriani
Femina Ridens

A very fine vintage Italian film soundtrack, arguably one of the finest examples of a golden age. Stelvio Cipriani has hundreds of soundtracks under his belt, but Femina Ridens is still considered a particular peak in the man’s career. This reissue is drawn from the original master tapes, including a previously unreleased track! On Four Flies.

Silvano D'Auria
La Mano Lunga Del Padrino

Here's yet another fantastic example of just how creative and prolific Italian film music was during the 1960s and '70s. La mano lunga del padrino by Silvano d'Auria has all the raucous and riotous noise you'd expect of a '70s gunslinger. Add in the unmistakable vocals of Edda dell'Orso and you have a classic of the genre.

Piero Piccioni
3 Notti D'Amore (Original Soundtrack)

Not only do Italians know how to create lush film scores on the themes of love, lust and murder, they know how to live the art too! During the 1950s, Piero Piccioni was a prime suspect in the murder of a young girl, Wilma Montesi. It was the first court case to lift the lid and take a peek at the corruption, wealth and sex at the top of Italian society and the public lapped up the tabloid headlines and paparazzi pictures. Piccioni was cleared of all charges and the case remains unsolved. You can hear it all here in Piccioni's 1964 soundtrack, 3 Notti d'Amore. Moving from sensuous sax and relaxed rhythms to tense strings and jumpy horns. It goes through the emotions like only an Italian could.

Esterno Notte Jazz

The first in the Esterno Notte Jazz series, out on Four Flies, this record is dedicated to the rich jazz featured in Italian films from the '60s, stopping by noir,melò, giallo, dark comedy and crazy 'musicarelli' along the way. A result of research that plundered the soundtrack archive of RCA Italy, this is a killer selection that features Piero Umiliani, Romano Mussolini, Amedeo Tommasi, Robby Poitevin, Piero Piccioni or Armando Trovajoli.

Dancefloor Stompers
Librerie Musicali

Dancefloor Stompers essentially attempt to bring together a nostalgic 'jazz inspired' past with a forward-thinking lust to find that sound. Librerie Musicali, if you haven't already guessed, focuses on Italian music produced in the 60's, 70's and 80's. A real mixed bag of instruments from this record that is available on vinyl LP on Four Flies.

Riz Ortolani
Si può essere più bastardi dell'ispettore Cliff?

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.

Stelvio Cipriani
Un'ombra nell'ombra (Ring of Darkness)

From the bottomless vaults of Italian horror movie soundtracks with some involvement from Goblin, here is the OST to the 1979 film Un’ombra nell’ombra (aka Ring Of Darkness), presented on vinyl for the first time ever! Composed by Stelvio Cipriani and performed by Goblin, the music is groovy, proggy, weird and atmospheric. Limited edition of 500 LPs on Four Flies.

Guido & Maurizio De Angelis
Il Grande Racket

A ferocious work of Italian soundtrack music by the duo of Guido and Maurizio De Angelis. Il Grande Racket is just that, a progged-up psych-funk suite that’s drenched in fuzz-box distortion, featuring raw and frantic grooves, wild flute action, and gnarly guitars. Il Grande Racket has been remastered from the original tapes and reissued by Four Flies

Roberto Nicolosi
L'occhio nel labirinto (Eye in the Labyrinth)

Roberto Nicolosi’s soundtrack to the 1972 giallo flick L’occhio nel labirinto, recorded with an ensemble of some of the finest Italian players and whipping up an amazing jazz-funk brew. And check this out: this gem of a soundtrack never even got a proper official release until now, so this is your first ever chance to grip these sweet sounds without being a hardcore collector! Edition of 500 LPs, with poster, on Four Flies.

The Green Birds
Diapason

Italian library music from the year 1971. I can only assume that the brief given to The Green Birds (that’s Renato Sperduti, Franco Bonfanti and Romano Rizzati, library fans) requested something weird and psychedelic, with a little bit of lounge here and a little bit of spooky there. Either way, that’s what they delivered. Diapason has now been reissued by For Flies in an edition of 500 LPs.

M. Fusciati (G. Iacoucci / M. Vinciguerra)
Urbanistica

Library music is rare almost by definition (since it was never supposed to be commercially released), but Urbanistica is ever rarer than most. G. Iacoucci and M. Vinciguerra were evidently given a brief to groove up the screen for this set: this music is totally funky, totally fun! Edition of 500 on 180g vinyl, out on Four Flies.

Alessandro Alessandroni
Sangue di Sbirro

Italian library music hero Alessandro Alessandroni was also active as a soundtrack composer for obscure movies: here is one he put together for Sangue di Sbirro, a funky noir with an air of blaxploitation. Alessandroni makes full use of the context, with plenty of soul funk and disco worked into the compositions. Never previously released on vinyl!

Riz Ortolani
Confessione Di Un Commissario Di Polizia Al Procuratore Della Repubblica

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.
