4-Oct-2007 - Digitmovies surprises again with new releases of Italian Classics..! The first one is the fifth volume in the Italian Peplum series: Gino Marinuzzi Jr.’s original score for the 1961 movie Ercole Alla Conquista Di Atlantide, directed by Vittorio Cottafavi and starring Reg Park in the role of Ercole. This CD release was made possible once again thanks to the help of C.A.M. in whose historic archives the original mono session elements had been preserved for 45 years. For the movie, Gino Marinuzzi Jr. provided an adventurous musical comment: “Titoli di testa” begins with an intro for percussions (heard during the tavern-ballet-scene) and reaches then its climax through an orchestral and choral development.
The second release is the complete score for the 1968 movie Preparati La Bara!, directed by Ferdinaldo Baldi (“Blindman”), starring Terence Hill as a gunman called Django. In those days no single or album was issued. The first release came out in 1998 (RCA 74321-63517-2). The score was composed by the brothers Gianfranco and Gian Piero Reverberi. The main theme is the song of Beat flavour for Trumpet, choir and orchestra: You’d better smile performed by Nicola Di Bari, a very popular Italian singer during the sixties and seventies.
Digitmovies has also released the third volume of its series dedicated to the Italian police movies with the complete original motion picture soundtrack for La Polizia Accusa: Il Servizio Segreto Uccide by Luciano Michelini. He created a symphonic score that alternates between romantic atmosphere to dramatic and mystery ones. Initially Digitmovies only found the monaural master tapes of this score, but further searches in the RCA archives resulted in the discovery of the stereophonic tapes that gave them the chance to realize a CD with far superior sound.
