At the end of the '60s in Italy - but also abroad, especially in France and England - a very particular trend began to spread, that one known as 'Library music' or 'sonorization': as suggested by its name, those were real music libraries intended for the accompaniment of audiovisual productions such as television programs, advertisements, documentaries and films. Since they were created in total artistic freedom condition, they are often difficult if not impossible to catalog, as they're not anchored to a specific musical genre; this freedom also allowed the authors to compose, sometimes in the most complete anonymity, experimental and avant-garde music, capable of anticipating the sounds that only many years later would have been widespread on a larger scale.

Giuliano Sorgini is one of the most mysterious composers of the sonorization and soundtrack genres: almost nothing is known about his life, despite his name being linked to dozens of albums and compositions. "Elettroformule" is probably one of his most 'extreme' experiments: a collection of thirteen short improvisations generated with the sole aid of electronic instruments: abstract compositions, balanced between ambient and noise music, perfect for a hypothetical science fiction from the '60/70s.

"Elettroformule" is part of a reissues series, made in collaboration with Edizioni Leonardi (Milan, Italy), of extremely rare library music LP's published between late '60s and early '70s, most of which have never been released again until today, and that are finally made available again for collectors and sonorization music lovers.

Pino Donaggio’s soundtrack for CORRUZIONE AL PALAZZO DI GIUSTIZIA is a work of many qualities. Donaggio creating romantically laced cues that are played alongside dramatic and taught sounding compositions. This score was written in 1974 before the composer had really established his “sound” but nevertheless the music has great character and contains some interesting orchestrations and arrangements. this is a work that will delight and probably surprise a number of film music fans. It’s an odd thing that many collectors of Italian film music often forget or side step the works of Donaggio, maybe this is due to the composers involvement with many horror movies and his use of a number of atonal or action cues, as opposed to melodic or romantic sounding compositions. The Maestro combines traditional Italian sounding motifs and musical passages with his own compositions and arrangements creating a rewarding and at times amusing listen. Composer Pino Donaggio teamed with filmmaker Brian DePalma to forge one of the most memorable collaborations in cinema history, writing a series of suspenseful, hauntingly atmospheric scores evoking Bernard Herrmann's landmark work for Alfred Hitchcock. Born Giuseppe Donaggio in Venice, Italy, on October 24, 1941, he was the product of a family of musicians, and began studying violin at the age of ten.

Identikit (also known as The Driver's Seat) is a 1974 Italian drama film directed by Giuseppe Patroni Griffi. Based on the novella The Driver's Seat by Muriel Spark, it is a psychological drama starring Elizabeth Taylor, Ian Bannen and featuring Andy Warhol. Lise, a mentally unbalanced middle-aged woman, travels from her home in London to Rome, Italy where she embarks on a fatal destiny that she had helped to arrange for herself - a premeditated search for someone, anyone, with whom she could form a dangerous liaison. Lise meets a variety of people during her journey and stay in Rome whom include Bill, a lecherous British businessman that she meets on the plane to Rome who tries to seduce her; Carlo, a young man whom Lise tries to know more about; an elderly Englishwoman named Mrs. Fiedke whom Lise bonds with to go shopping; and Pierre, a Frenchman who picks up Lise hoping to seduce her as well. The film is told in a non-linear narrative as throughout the film are scenes of the local Rome police interviewing all the people that Lise interacted with as well as investigating the reasons for her strange behavior that led up to her own murder. Original Italian soundtrack from 1974 on the beautiful Ariete label by the pianist Franco Mannino. A great LP that inlcudes two completely different sides. On the first side, a refined symphonic composition for solo piano divided into 9 tracks performed by Franco Mannino himself. Second side is also composed by Franco Mannino but with the help of Sergio Montori this time entitled "Elizabeth Suite" and featuring 8 tracks with some crazy hammond. Enough words! Listen to "Liz Five" and "Lize Seven" two great jazz funk tracks with nice hammond and guitar.

Release:2020 / US – Original

Faithful reproduction of the original edition with inner envelope, on white vinyl

lFranco Falsini is a musician and composer who, already in the mid-'60s, was full-time involved in music
activities: a tireless traveler and experimenter, an artist with uncommon curiosity and intuition, after
having lived for some time in the United States and England, he finally established again in Italy where he gave shape to Sensations' Fix and signed a contract with Polydor for the release of six records in five years.

In addition to the composition and release of the Sensations' Fix LP's, Falsini was able to record a solo
album in 1975, 'Cold Nose (Naso freddo)', the soundtrack of the eponymous short film directed by Filippo Milani, which Falsini himself says it's the description of 'a day in the life of a Freudian cocaine addict. There were only three actors, two of whom represented the paranoia of the main and only character, Miguel, a Spaniard who lived as a photomodel companion. [...] There was no action at all in the film, which was basically made of moving photographs, with many close-ups [...]. This, with the absence of dialogues, made the soundtrack fundamental. The slowness of the images had to be reflected in music, and synchronizing everything wasn't easy. [...] Everything was analogic and the tape cuts were handmade'.

Sonically speaking, 'Cold Nose' is a space/psychedelic trip played by Falsini in complete autonomy, with
only bass, guitar, keyboards/synthesizers and sporadic vocalizations at the end of the third and last part of the opera, a long 20-minute composition that fills the entire B-side of the record. Sounds and atmospheres are still fresh totay, and it wouldn't have been wrong to define them 'avant-garde' back in those days!

180g Blue LP /// Listening today to the music produced by Sensations’ Fix, a project founded and directed by Franco Falsini in ‘70s, can’t just leave anyone indifferent. Already in the mid-‘60s, Falsini was full-time involved in musical activities: a tireless traveler and experimenter, an artist with uncommon curiosity and intuition, after having lived for some time in the United States and England, he finally established again in Italy where he gave shape to Sensations’ Fix and signed a contract with Polydor for the release of six records in five years. Often associated with the sound of Tangerine Dream and the so-called German ‘cosmic couriers’, Sensations’ Fix were much more than mere clones of something already existing.

“Sensations’ Fix” is – together with “Portable Madness” and “Fragments of Light” – one of the three titles published in 1974, a collection of short psychedelic compositions, in which glimpses of ‘cosmic’ music can already be noticed; those elements would soon become a trademark in the group’s repertoire. The twelve compositions present here were part of demos that Falsini had sold to the record company, which decided to publish them in the form of a not-for-sale LP, which had “music especially recorded for radio and television” written on the back cover: in practice, sketches of musical ideas had been ‘transformed’ into ‘library music’ and collected in an extremely rare vinyl that sells today for hundreds of euros.

Sensations’ Fix albums are generally difficult to find; almost none of them has been reprinted in over forty years, but thanks to this series of reissues on the VM label it is now possible to rediscover them all.

Often associated with the sound of Tangerine Dream and the so-called German ‘cosmic couriers’, Sensations’ Fix were much more than mere clones of something already existing.

“Finest Finger” is Sensations’ Fix’s fourth album, originally released in 1976 and never officially reissued on vinyl until today. The making of this record coincided with the line-up addition of a second keyboard player and, even if Franco Falsini remains the only author of all its songs, the album sounds much more homogeneous, fluent, inspired, better produced than the band’s previous ones and is clearly the result of a proper teamwork. For the first time, Falsini also took care of the singing parts in four of the eight tracks, with very good results. This is probably the first album in which, thanks to the experience and means acquired, the sound of Sensations’ Fix takes on more precise and personal shapes.

Sensations’ Fix albums are generally difficult to find; almost none of them has been reprinted in over forty years, but thanks to this series of reissues on the VM label it is now possible to rediscover them all.

Release:1974 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Pop
Active for over 40 years on the Italian pop-rock scene, Loredana Berté can in all respects be considered an iconic character, always associated with free and provocative sexuality. The manifesto of her way of life was already included in her first LP "Streaking", originally released in 1974. Musically, the album can be associated to the 'soft rock' genre, with some funk, symphonic and even soul elements: but the main ingredient is, os course, Loredana Berté's voice, already versatile and endowed with a strong personality while only 24 years old.
The record was produced and arranged by Enrico Riccardi, who's also the main composer; three years earlier, in 1971, he was wrote the entire album "La foresta" by I Leoni, whose song "Sesso" is here present as a cover and with the slightly different title "S.e.s.s.o.". The original edition of "Streaking" - the term used to indicate the exhibitionist practice of running completely naked in the context of large-scale public events - had a very special cover, practically an envelope containing the vinyl that opened in twelve LP-sized sides; the six external ones included the cover and the songs lyrics, while the other six showed various full-nude photos of the singer: the censorship that followed led to the withdrawal of "Streaking" from the market.
In the following decades the album has been reissued only twice on CD, and this is the first vinyl reissue ever, with a faithful reproduction of the original special gatefold cover!

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The Trip, a band mostly comprising English musicians who traveled to Italy in search of success during the '60s (even a young Ritchie Blackmore figured in the very first line-up!), were lucky enough to debut on RCA Records in 1970 with a blues-oriented eponymous album, just to suddenly change their musical route towards progressive rock with the next "Caronte" and "Atlantide".
With "Time of Change" the band also entered the Trident roster, a fourth album in four consecutive years, the highest peak in an exceptional evolution mostly led by singer/keyboardist Joe Vescovi. 'It's time to change' says the title of the album, that shows a brilliant illustration on its gatefold cover with the three group members fly towards new paths. Here, even more than in the past, the classical elements mix with a progressive rock clearly influenced by EL&P and Yes, sometimes landing into jazz-rock; the compositions, in
particular the long "Rhapsodia" that occupy the entire side A of the LP, are rich in shades, athmospheres and rhythm changes.
By some irony of fate, "Time of Change" would also become the last studio album produced by one of the very few Italian bands who could compete against the giants of international progressive rock. It's been very hard to find on LP even in recent times, and it's therefore reissued on GDR label, in a faithful reproduction of the original 1973 edition, on coloured vinyl and with a bonus CD attached.

LP | 1973 | EU | Reissue (Vinyl Magic)
21,99 €*
Release:1973 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Third LP in three years and substantially third center in a row, this was “Felona and Sorona”, the definitive consecration record for Le Orme, who became dominators of the Italian progressive rock scene, a status that still resists the inexorable passing of the years.
The long opener “Sospesi nell’incredibile” shows how rules have definitely been broken: “Felona and Sorona” can therefore be seen as a statement of freedom and artistic independence, waved in front of an even wider audience. In 1973 in fact the so-called ‘new avant-garde pop’ was so popular as to influence the famous artists (such as De André with “E tutti morimmo a stento” or Battisti with “Amore e non amore”) and many musicians were not afraid to break barriers, album after album.
“Felona and Sorona” is, in short, a masterpiece, of those who are made only once in a lifetime, impossible to replicate and therefore even more unique and special.
The album was released in two versions, one sung in Italian and the other in English on lyrics written by Peter Hammill from Van Der Graaf Generator. This is the Italian edition, a faithful replica of the original edition on transparent green vinyl.

Genre:Rock / Indie
“Uomo di Pezza” (1972) renews the collaboration between Le Orme, producer Gian Piero Reverberi and Philips record label, on which the group debuted the previous year with “Collage”. As with the previous work, rock and pop are mixed with symphonic elements, creating another cornerstone of Italian progressive rock.
This is the album of the popular “Gioco di bimba”, one of the most famous Le Orme’s songs, also released on 45rpm at the time. On a ‘progressive’ point of view, “Uomo di Pezza” can be seen as a transition LP, suspended between the beautiful “Collage” and the masterpiece “Felona and Sorona”, but still important to understand the rapid evolution of an essential band.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Look for “De De Lind” on the internet and you will find mainly two results: those related to a Playboy magazine model very much in vogue in the ‘60s, and those concerning the eponymous Italian progressive rock meteor band. The long title of the album “Io non so da dove vengo e non so dove mai andrò, uomo è il nome che mi hanno dato” (I do not know where I come from and where ever I’ll go, Man is the name I’ve been given) already anticipates the philosophical/existential lyrical content of the songs: seven tracks that develop between acoustic sensations and hard-rock guitar riffs for nearly forty minutes, culminating in the ending climax of the final track “E poi”.

A band that surely deserved more success at the time - their LP was released in 1973 - but that was largely ignored, apart from a modest, mostly negative review appeared on Ciao 2001 magazine. Only recently De De Lind and their only record have been re-evaluated, and they’re now considered a fundamental piece in the Italian progressive scene. It takes just the first notes of the initial “Fuga e morte” to realize that we’re in front of a great musical work.

This edition is a faithful replica of the original LP in gatefold format.
