Piero Piccioni - Una Tomba Aperta...Una Bara Vuota


Piero Piccioni - Una Tomba Aperta...Una Bara Vuota
Released - 1972/1982
Label - Beat Records (IT)/CAM
Style - Electronic, Disco, Italo, Funk, Electro, Soundtrack

Notes:
Tracks 1-12 are from the soundtrack to Italian cult/horror director Lucio Fulci's Lo Squartatore Di New York (aka The New York Ripper), made in 1982.
Tracks 13-20 are from the soundtrack to the Spanish/Italian giallo film Una Tomba Aperta... Una Bara Vuota, directed by Alfonso Balcázar in 1972.


(review from ScoreBaby):
This is an odd double feature. Piero Piccioni's Open Grave, Empty Coffin actually plays second. The New York Ripper plays first and that's good since it's better than the Piccioni score. Trovaioli's score has greater dynamics than Piccioni's, so it deserves to be first. The New York Ripper features soulful, latin-tinged disco funk like "New York One Night", one version using heavily flanged electric guitar. The beginning of "Puertorico Club" is as stripped down as any electronica I've heard. Tension tracks, like "The Ripper" and "Where is the Ripper?" are truly effective. I haven't seen the movie (which is notoriously violent), but the soundtrack is quite compelling and practically serves as an effective substitute for watching the movie. Piccioni's score for Open Grave, Empty Coffin (how noir can you get!) is more about atmosphere than it is about rhythm. A full orchestra saws away dark, demented passages. Other tracks are dreamier, mysterious and tender.

Hey there,
Thanks for all this music.
I would have a special request.
Would you have by any chance the album "Voix" by Egisto Macchi?
If you do it would be awesome!
Thanks in advance!:)
