The music composed by Piero Umiliani for Baba Yaga / Devil Witch (1973, Corrado Farina) – the film inspired by the ultra pop comic books of Guido Crepax, Valentina – is one of the most mysterious and fascinating works to be found in the corpus of the Maestro. Of this maudit work that experts considered lost only two tracks survived, those that we present here for the first time in a single 45 RPM: Open Space, a blazing up-tempo acid jazz with psychedelic insets and galloping bass tones that was used in the title credits and then released in that same year inside the masterpiece entitled To-Day’s Sound; and Slogan, that reworks the film’s theme – initially played by a languid sax – in a jazz-funk key (published in 1975 in the background music series of the library Bon Voyage)
