ENZO BONTEMPI Italian spiderman / Bangarang


listen here www.myspace.com/theitalianspiderman




A mod little number -- supposedly recorded for an Italian Spiderman film in the 60s, and done in a weird mix of garage rock and groove! The cut has these stomping guitars in the lead, followed by lyrics that basically repeat the title in a catchy way -- and in the middle, the whole thing gets a bit echoey and trippy! "Bangarang" is a bit funkier overall -- and really kicks up the echo nicely on the rhythms -- all in a mad array of romping rhythms, jazzy riffs, and some weird muddled up vocal bits! © 1996-2008, Dusty Groove America, Inc.


Italian Spiderman Master Tapes- Backstory

In 1964 Alrugo Entertainment went in to production of the feature film Italian Spiderman, four years later, the film was complete and the company was bankrupt. The film was considered so edgy and generally confusing that no Italian distributor would pick it up. Alfonso Alrugo, the film's producer and head of Alrugo Entertianment sent the only existing 35mm print of the film off to an underground distributor friend of his in New York in a last ditch attempt to get Italian Spiderman out to the world and maybe re-coup some profit. The cargo ship containing the only print of the film sank somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. Alfonso closed the gates to Alrugo Entertainment and went back to the trade that made his millions, orange farming. Alfonso's oldest son, Francesco Alrugo decided to join his father in re-building his orange empire whilst his younger son, Tedesco Alrugo stayed in the city to continue running 'Alrugodisc' the record company Alfonso had established.In 1969, the only artist signed to Alrugodisc, was Enzo Bontempi, the man responsible for composing the Italian Spiderman soundtrack. Over the next two years, Tedesco and Enzo worked fastidiously on Enzo's seminal Disco album entitled 'Enzo Bontempi - WOW!'. On it's release in 1971 the first single from 'Wow!', which was also entitled 'wow!' soared to number 7 in the Italian charts. By Christmas 1971, it had reached number 1. The album went on to sell 1.3 million copies. Both Tedesco and Enzo became rich as oil sheiks. Thanks the success of "Wow!" Enzo and Tedesco are widely regarded as the granddaddies of Italian disco beat.
However, wealth and stardom soon took a toll on Tedesco Alrugo. He succumbed to a life of fast women and cocaine. Enzo looked on in disbelief as his manager, producer and mentor, flushed his life down the drain. The straw that broke the camel's back came when Enzo caught Tedesco in bed with his wife. Enzo left Tedesco and Alrugodisc, for life.

Having squandered his millions, and now having no artists signed to his label, Tedesco turned Alrugodisc into a front for a drug running operation. During an attempt to smuggle a large shipment of dope into Spain, Tedesco was involved in a gunfight at the border between police and a gang of Spanish drug dealers, He was shot 17 times and died in a hospital in Pamplona. After his death, Italian police raided Alrigodisc headquarters where they seized a great deal of cocaine, a small weapons cache, some exotic species of birds, and all the master tapes of Alrugodisc's back catalogue.

In November 2007 Luis of Soulful Torino records uncle Ettore, previously chief of narcotics in the Milano police department, passed away. A month later, Luis' Auntie Gilda asked if Luis was interested in a box of tapes and records that she had discovered whilst going through Ettore's belongings. Always on the lookout for an undiscovered jem, Luis and his partner Jimmy did not hesitate to investigate auntie Gilda's find. In Gilda's basement they discovered Alrugodisc's entire back catalogue including the Soundtrack to Italian Spiderman.

Upon hearing that the grandsons of Alfonso Alrugo had discovered the lost print of Italian Spiderman and were planing to restore and distribute the film via the net, they made contact and struck a deal to release the Italian Spiderman soundtrack to the world via Soulful Torino Records / Record Kicks.

STR 001 HECTOR RIVERA "I WANT A CHANCE FOR ROMANCE"

GREAT FIRST ISSUE!
HECTOR RIVERA "I WANT A CHANCE FOR ROMANCE"



Soulful Torino Records new born label from SOULFUL and Record kicks indipendent rare groovelabel from Milan join their forces to reissue the giant latin soul hit "I WANT A CHANCE FOR ROMANCE" by latin legend HECTOR RIVERA. The track was originally recorded back in 1967 and it's probably the most infectious latin soul monster ever recorded. The keyboardist, arranger and composer Hector Rivera like the more famed Pucho & the Latin Soul Brothers, Ray Barretto and Joe Bataan, was one of the most renowned performers of the Latin BOOGALOO era. His biggest hit was "At the party" which became very popular at the end of the 60s. " I Want a chance for romance" was released in the same period and has been a massive spin on all soul, mod and deep funk dancefloors for over 30 years. On the B side, for the first time on 7", the groovy instrumental version.

Jazzman Records:Easily one the best latin dance tracks ever made and a VERY welcome reissue because the original is impossible to find, even if you're loaded. Superb latin soul from the late '60s and you get vocal and instro either side too, you lucky people!

Dusty Grooves: One of the grooviest numbers ever cut by Latin leader Hector Rivera -- a late 60s Latin soul track with a mean mod little hook! The vocals here are all in English, and the rhythms are rompingly soulful -- lots of heavy piano over percussion, and tight horn blasts punctuating the whole groove -- especially after the tune's sock-soul chorus! The flipside features an instrumental that's almost as good as the main track too!
