Doxy present a reissue of Nino Rota and Armando Trovajoli's soundtrack for the 1962 Italian anthology film, Boccaccio '70. From original liner notes: "Two of Italy's top soundtrack musicians, Nino Rota and Armando Trovajoli, are responsible for the exciting music featured in Boccaccio '70. Rota has been the composer of dozens of famous film soundtracks and his music contributed greatly to Fellini's previous hit films, La Strada (1954), I Vitelloni (1953) and La Dolce Vita (1960). In The Temptation of Dr. Antonio, Rota subtly underlines the obsession for morality which dominates the life of Dr. Antonio, the leading character in the episode . . . and his sensitive musical comment on Visconti's contribution to Boccaccio '70 -- The Job is a unique asset to the great director's work. Armando Trovajoli is the composer of the musical commentary to De Sica's The Raffle. Trovajoli was the first composer to induce Sophia Loren to sing in a film . . . and in The Raffle, Sophia sings again. The strikingly effective underscoring for Boccaccio '70, composed by these two outstanding musicians, is in no small way responsible for the smash box-office success of the film around the world." Edition of 500.
