A monster batch of 1970's Italian crime funk! These 18 nuggets have been sourced from various releases, mostly on the Cinevox and Beat labels and a couple of tracks come from Goblin films. As you'd expect there is much wah wah, breakbeats, horns and super deep bass but interestingly there's also a number of different electronic elements at play. The likes of "Blazing Magnum", "New Special Squad" and "La Via Della Droga" exhibit an effortless brilliance and a timeless quality which is so often present with top shelf Italian soundtrack music.
The breakneck "Trumpet's Flight" is interesting because it comes off sounding like a sped up version of something you might find on a jazz funk themed Bruton album. "Napoli Si Ribella" is also worth mentioning because of it having a strange amalgamation of disco, funk and soundtrack epicness that certainly makes for compelling listening.
There's plenty more highlights to be found but I'll let you discover them for yourself. Go check it out. 10 out of 10 Frolics!
