Well, since we have a Piero Piccioni thread, how about a matching set for Umiliani?

I have these:

Sweden Heaven and Hell
White Angel, Black Angel
5 Dolls for an August Moon
Today's Sound (A library album that features the theme from Babayaga).

I should add that I have a TON of his stuff on comps, such as Easy Tempo volumes 1 through 9 and a slew of other Italian comps I picked up in the late 90s and early 00s.

I wonder which of his masterpieces I should own, especially based on the titles I listed above.

And, I would LOVE to know where I can get the rest of the "Babayaga" music. As I mentioned, the groovy opening theme is on "Today's Sound," but I haven't found the rest of the stuff, especially the sad theme.

reissues - my top 3

- GDM's "Colpo Gobbo All' Italiana' (1962)
- (if you're into Jazz), Cinedelic's "Una Bella Grinta" (1965)
- the latest (2008) Cinevox reissue of "5 Bambole Per Le Luna d'Agosto" (1969)

QUESTO SPORCO MONDO MERAVIGLIOSO on Right Tempo has a load of great themes. He also released a bunch of library lps in the 60s & 70s on his own labels - Omicron, SoundWorkshop, Liuto, etc. - that hopefully will get CD releases... lots of great stuff here (if you can find them!) Kronos Records has done a couple releases from these lps, taken from the original tapes - ARAGOSTA A COLAZIONE (movie score) and AFRICA TO-DAY, which is described as "a blend of jazz, funk, world music and progressive rock with percussive breaks, marimba solos, piano riffs and moog licks in a state of the art performance by Piero and his orchestra."

"Questo sporco mondo meraviglioso" ist my favourite soundtrack by Maestro Umiliani. I can also recommend "La ragazza dalla pelle di luna", "Il Corpo" and "Roy Colt & Winchester Jack".

I have these:

Sweden Heaven and Hell


ah ha! the score with the original mah na mah na with Alessandroni doing the mah na mah na bits and Edda and Gianna doing the doob do de doo doop. Good stuff. (soon to get a rebirth with the new Muppet movie!)

my favourite western of his (aside from roy colt mentioned previously by JC) is
Il Figlio Di Django - with the great song They called him Django.
"I'll kill for Django, and for his memory, he was my father, a man of high degree.."

You have a very good batch of solid listening Today's Sound is the best out of library ones I have not listened to Umiliani in some time.

Zeudi Araya trilogy is very good especially Il Corpo (The Body)
La Ragazza Dalla Pelle Di Luna
Il Corpo
La Ragazza Fuori Strada

Never heard this one.
Did find an image of an original LP cover, though...

I have less Umiliani then you, Onya.

However, I do remember a number of rare LPs by Umiliani having photo coverage in Keith McNally's soundtrack record price guide (published around 1990, I believe).

Here's some of the images and/or titles that stick in your mind's eye:



I wonder why Sugar Music doesn't re-issue some of these LP programs onto CDs by DigitMovies or GDM or Legend...

I love that last one I Piaceri Proibiti 1963 it was released on cd in Japan by Seven Seas in 2007 would love to hear some of those other ones Intrigo a Los Angeles looks very interesting the cover art is very similar to Una Bella Grinta another gem that Morrifan has already recommended.

Need to give Lucio Fulci - Colpo Gobbo All'Italiana another spin have yet to get into that one.

Onya sorry to change the subject but most of your favorites are Easy Tempo Rocco Pandiani cds
Did you ever pick up this extremely addictive one from Lesiman (Paolo Renosto)

I thought I'd try L'Arcangelo, I like Verita Note releases, too bad they have finished.

Yes, I miss Verita Note CDs. Although there were basically GDM productions released in Japan, so nothing is over. However, Verita Note released some more groovy/beat oriented works, like the one above, which GDM does not produce so much.

Maybe some clever company can release a CD of "PASSWORD: KILL AGENT GORDON" ("Password: Uccidete agente Gordon") (1966)? Probably a lousy film (I have never seen it), but I always found the title-song interesting. Unfortunately all that I have ever heard are 56 seconds of it (and I would not be surprised if the whole score turned out to be excellent):
