1 - PEGURI, GINO - IL CORSARO NERO - (CD)    UPDATED
DIGITMOVIES


Blackie the Pirate is a fictional character created by the Italian writer Emilio Salgari. The character has appeared invarious films throughout the years such as in a silent film directed by Vitale Di Stefano in 1920; in a film directed byAmleto Palermi in 1937 with music by Alessandro Cicognini; and in a version directed by Sergio Sollima in 1976 whereBlackie was played by the popular star Kabir Bedi, with music by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis.The composer Gino Peguri (author of soundtracks for movies like "Bloody Pit of Horror," "Seven Magnificent Pistols", "AWoman on Fire", "Psychopath," "Code Name, Red Roses") wrote an orchestral score for "Blackie the Pirate" which wasreleased in 1971 on a rare LP from RCA (SP 8035) and a rare single Cormorano (ZC 50180).For this CD re-release we were able to find the stereo master tapes from the original album and the complete mastertapes from the original recording sessions which include both stereo and mono mixes. In addition to the 12 stereo trackson the album, we have added nine alternate tracks in stereo and five alternate tracks in mono.This OST is dominated by the fun pop-sounding song in the opening credits called "Orza qui poggia lž," performed byPaolo Ferrara and accompanied by the chorus of Nora Orlandi (tr.6 and tr.14), then reprised with variations in tr.8, tr.12,tr.18, tr.20, tr.21 and tr.27. There are elements of Hispanic music on tr.3, tr.4, tr.11, tr.15, tr.16. You can hearadventurous music on tr.1, tr.7, tr.13, Tr.24 and tr.25, while early music appears on tr.10 & tr.17. A romantic love theme isfound on tr.2 and tr.26. For the LP version we brought back the 1971 LP with the addition of the English version of "Orzaqui poggia lž" as well as the film version of the track "In the Caribbean" and two alternative versions on side B.

2 - PHURPA - RITUALS OF BON II - (LP)    NEW
ZOHARUM


Phurpa is an extraordinary artistic and cultural project, not only on a European scale. For years, its members have been exploring the traditions of Bon - the magical practices of ancient Tibet, Iran and even Egypt, and they take it closer to their listeners. Over the last few years they have recorded dozens of sessions, released on various formats. They have already played countless number of concerts in various parts of the globe. Each of their performances assumes the character of a ritual where Phurpa members, thanks to their "rgyud-whence" singing and playing traditional instruments, often made of human bones, bring the audience into a kind of trance, a transgressive journey, inviting to a meeting with the ancients gods and demons of the pre-buddhist era.

3 - PLUSH - FED - (LP)    UPDATED
BE WITH


Originally released in Japan only on CD in 2002, Plush's†Fed†lives up to the cult-like adulation it has garnered ever since. A stunning symphony of Bacharach-inspired pop, Toussaint-swing andMelody Nelson-era-Gainsbourg, its an album bound together by Liam Hayes' maverick genius, an uncompromising Brian Wilson-esque quest for sonic perfection. Positively indulgent in every way, this sumptuous record has long deserved to be treated to a deluxe vinyl edition. Lovingly overseen by Hayes and recent collaborator Pat Sansone (Wilco/The Autumn Defense), it will finally be available on the format it shouldve always been, this Record Store Day 2018. Remastered and presented as a double LP - cut specially at 45rpm - it comes housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with expanded artwork throughout.†Its expansive, singular vision infamously took years to realise, involving Earth Wind & Fires horn arranger (the legendary Tom Tom MMLXXXIV) amongst other elite personnel.†Recorded with five different engineers (including Steve Albini and John McEntire), Hayes meticulously extracted every ounce of pop from each note.†A long list of renowned studio ringers (including soul drummer Morris Jennings) and Chicago regulars (McEntire, Rizzo, Parker) among†many†others provide playing of demonstrably professional precision. As such, Hayes' complex, meandering melodies are rendered far more coherent and satisfying than they otherwise might have appeared, bringing his epic, anguished pop to a rarely seen level of perfection and depth. This unstinting dedication to the overarching vision was rewarded handsomely - artistically, at least.†However, as might have been expected, his deluxe approach resulted in a bill too steep for any American or European label to ultimately support. It has since seemed unlikely that it would see the light of day on either side of the Atlantic. Yet we were determined not to allow Hayes' lifetime achievement to go unnoticed or let music fans across the world miss out on one of the finest albums of this century.A wide-eyed opus of stunning intensity,†Fed†oozes Hayes impeccable influences without ever becoming overwhelmed by them. Incredibly, it touches upon Blaxploitation soul, Boz Scaggs-soft-rock, hints of jazz and blues, timeless baroque and skewed pop. In one long minute, the stabbing, soulful ""So Blind"" moves through five different melodic segments, horns shift easily from haunting backdrop to explosive forefront, smoothly giving way to strings as Hayes' voice casts its bewitching spell. The ambitious soul of "Having It All" has been described as the diffident cousin of Marvin Gayes "Save The Children" whilst the breezy ""Greyhound Bus Station"" is pure 70s AM Gold, evoking the easy warmth of Jimmy Webbs beloved†Lands End†period. The sublime resignation of ""No Education"", a beautifully slow number that begins, ""Never read a book in my life/ But I feel just fine"" is post-rock ballad heaven. Arriving towards the end, the title track†arrives as a majestic suite, moving from a horn-and-guitar-led instrumental via shifting melodies to Hayes compelling vocal bursts.†††An album of such brilliance,†Fed†can comfortably sit alongside such staggering statement pieces as David Bowie's†Young Americans, Randy Newman's†12 Songs†or Harry Nilsson's†Nilsson Schmilsson. Indeed, for all the sprawling elements that went in - lengthy guitar builds, exploding horn sections, solemn strings, female backup chorus - it is a deeply personal and original record. Employing a distinct "more is more" aesthetic, he demonstrates remarkable restraint in producing an album of such intimacy. ""My creation has drowned me,"" he memorably sings on languid opener ""Whose Blues"", yet he navigates the shifting styles and ideas with enviable ease.
