Product Notes

DJ and label owner Lorenzo digs out more lost Italian soundtrack recordings from the 1970s and '80s on his second volume of Musica Per L'Immagine (rough translation: Music For The Motion Picture). Volume 1 came out of left-field in 2017, leaving music fans stunned by both the level of obscurity, and by it's' sounds, which were nothing like what is considered to be "Italian soundtrack". No eerie Morricone-style electric guitars, harmonicas, or Rota-era baroque strings and folk melodies, Musica Per L'Immagine instead gathered a grab bag of recordings from the late-1970s and early-1980s that displayed a distinctly Italian tendency to create spacey funk, disco, jazz, easy listening and such. This double album is far more than a reprise of what made Volume I work. Lorenzo explains, "Last time I drew largely from my own record collection - this time I've gone and dug from the archives that have been opened for me. Also, for Volume I I put the emphasis on the jazz-funk recordings because they were both so strong and so unknown. This time I've decided to ensure the compilation sounds very cinematic - perhaps a bit closer to what people think Italian soundtrack music sounds like!"
