Ennio Morricone: Neuauflage eines Fulci-Soundtracks von 1964

Das auf die Erst- und Wiederveröffentlichung alter Soundtracks und anderer Library Music spezialisierte Label SONOR Music Editions bringt einen lange vergriffenen Morricone-Score für Lucio Fulcis Mafiafilm I due evasi di Sing Sing (Das Großmaul) von 1964 heraus. Das im Easy Listening-Stil der Zeit mit Jazz- und Bossanova-Anleihen produzierte frühe Werk des berühmten Filmkomponisten erschien bislang einmal in einer limitierten, nur für Archive bestimmten Auflage und liegt nun in neu gemasterter Fassung vor. Neben dem Download erscheint der Score in einer 500 Exemplare umfassenden LP-Version.

“Sonor Music Editions proudly announces the first commercial release on vinyl (shortly followed by a CD edition) of Ennio Morricone’s soundtrack to the film “I DUE EVASI DI SING SING” from 1964, directed by the legendary Lucio Fulci and starring the famed Italian comedy characters Franco Franchi and Ciccio Ingrassia. Shortly after what would have been his 92° birthday, the label presents a pseudo unreleased gem by the greatest all-time composer at the beginning of his career. This stunning recovery was possible thanks to the work of the producer Lorenzo Fabrizi (head of Sonor Music Editions) and the collaboration of Claudio Fuiano and Daniel Winkler, two significant connoisseurs in the field and maestro Morricone’s discography.

The album was originally released on an impossible-to-find promo-only library release in the late ’60s with different titles, due to that the score remained concealed until now. With the recoup of the original MONO tapes Sonor was able to work with the original soundtrack sequence adding two bonus tracks from the original sessions. The music enhances the stories of two sloppy thiefs (Franchi and Ingrassia) in the styles of orchestral Jazz and Bossa Nova, with more sweet and cheerful themes built around the bewitching character of Gloria Paul.” (SONOR Music Editions)
