The Ennio Morricone Themes collection available as At The Movies Shop exclusive editions of each only 250 copies on coloured vinyl.
For over 70 years, Ennio Morricone has shaped the movie industry with his defining soundtracks. In honor of this music icon and father of melodies, we present The Ennio Morricone Themes collection, a unique collection of the greatest scores ´The Maestro´ has composed for movies, divided into 5 central themes; Giallo, Lounge, Passion, Psycho and Western.
Each theme contains a selection of iconic Morricone songs featured in classic movies from that theme, captured on a 2LP set on coloured vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve. The sleeve contains images of iconic movie posters on the inside and each set includes a 4-page booklet with liner notes by Clause Fuiano. Since it's a collection, the spines of the five titles form one image together.

Lounge is part of the Ennio Morricone Themes series, a unique collection of the greatest scores 'The Maestro' has composed for movies over the past 70 years, divided into different themes. This collection is a celebration of Lounge style pieces by Morricone that are capable of evoking in the listener thoughts of easy living, sophistication, romantic moods, and the excitement of a 1950s cocktail lounge or a 1960s nightclub.
When we think of 1960's Italian pulp cinema, the Spaghetti Western is the genre that comes to mind. However, Italy was responsible for another classic cinematic exploitation movement around the same time, one that is equally as compelling, but less widely recognized. Giallo, meaning 'yellow', is the Italian term for crime fiction, it was named after the bright yellow colours of early pulp fiction paperbacks. The Giallo can be difficult to define, but essentially it is an Italian crime film that draws from a pool of common themes: stylized murders, amateur sleuths, sleazy glamour, psychological crimes, enigmatic titles and all these themes are underpinned by creepily atmospheric Ennio Morricone music scores.
Passion is the fifth and final part of a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. Each collection centres on a different movie genre, together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time. Passion once again reminds us that everything in Italian life is approached with gusto, energy and passion.
Psycho is the second in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. This collection is dedicated to Morricone's work with Italian directors spanning the late 1960s up to the 1980s. These scores accompany some darkly dramatic films, some veering into the realms of horror.
