Gianni Marchetti - Il Magnifico Tony Carrera LP
Label: Transversales Disques
Release Date: June 21st, 2019
Transversales Disques presents the first ever LP reissue of Gianni Marchetti's Il Magnifico Tony Carrera, the ultra-rare Italian soundtrack originally released on cult label CAM in 1969. Gianni Marchetti wrote this beautiful score for the Euro-spy film Il Magnifico Tony Carrera as he was more of a songwriter than a film composer. The score includes lots of different atmospheres and arrangements: from fuzzy dark psychedelic themes with harpsichord and haunted choirs (performed by the famous 4+4 di Paola Orlandi) to angelic and dreamy vocal themes. Also contains some tense climax sitar tunes with beautiful bass sound. Compared to the original CAM LP, this reissue dropped some carnivalesque tracks in order to include some nice unreleased variations of the themes, plus all the suspense cues that were largely removed from the original track listing. Il Magnifico Tony Carrera is definitely a major score of the Italian Silver Age. Remastered from the original master tapes.
