Product Description


Compiled by Italian DJ Scanna this compilation of Italian funky, easy-listening organ grooves and R&B contains a treasure chest of gems. Kitsch covers--"Il Gato Nero /The In Crowd" by Brian Auger, Deep Purple's "Hush" by I Colours, Spencer Davis' "I'm A Man" covered as "Sono Un Uomo" by Patrick Samson and the Beach Boys' "Surfin' USA" recorded by I Quattro Di Lucca. Funky grooves are a plenty--Johnny Dorelli's "Arriva La Bomba", I Baronetti's "Soul Finger" and Giorgio Moroder's version of "Mah Nah Mah Nah" (this is a man who went on to greater things with Donna Summer. Also included is the extremely rare and much sought-after Ennio Morricone composition "Deep Down" from the soundtrack to Diabolik. --F B Hawkes

4.0 out of 5 stars 60's Italian Pop 28 July 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another fine installment of Italian sounds from La Douce. This time the spotlight falls on Italian Pop in the 60's. Anyone familiar with Italian Bands or Italian Soundtracks will have programmed their feet for groove alert. Brian Auger & The Trinity cover themselves in Italian - the driving 'il gatto nero' (black cat) is far from kitsch! Nino Ferrer was a French Popstar who exiled himself in Italy for 2 years - Il Baccala is a dance floor orgy. Brunetta's exotic 'Baluba Shake' bursts out of the colosseum with roaring lions & squawking birds. Morricone's composition 'Deep Deep Down' sung by Christy is unsurprisingly hard to shift from the brain's jukebox and you might find yourself hitting the repeat. Throw in decent covers of Hush, 25 miles, Soul Finger, The In-Crowd and I'm A Man and it would be impolite and inexcusable not to share this with the neighbours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Italian Groooove 5 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a gem of a compilation, crammed full of Italian 60's groove. Some of the highlights include a fabulously lounged out version of Spencer Davis' 'I'm a Man' sung in Italian; the title track 'Arriva la Bomba' taken from a 1967 movie spoof of Danger Diabolik. And speaking of Diabolik, this CD also has the only surviving track from that film to be officially released - Morricone's Deep Deep Down, sung beautifully by Christy. (It's worth the price of entry just for this.) Then there's a brilliant track from Brian Auger and Trinity, recorded live in a Milan - in Italian - from 1968. How much more encouragement do you need?? Still not enough eh? Well how about Giorgio Moroder (he of Donna Summer fame) unleashing a wigged out version of 'Mah Na Mah Na'!! (You know - the one the Muppets made famous...) I could go on, but I think you're getting the jist. If you're a lover of 60's groove, as I know you are, then this album will have you wearing a hole in your rug.

Now where did I park that Fiat....
