Wow! We are very happy to bring back to light this fantastic soundtrack by one of the most underrated Italian musicians. It is well known the rich musical heritage that the Italian film industry has left us, and all those who enjoy the likes of Ennio Morricone, Alessandro Alessandroni, Piero Piccioni, Piero Umiliani, Riz Ortolani, Armando Trovajoli et al. will welcome Gli Angeli del 2000 to their collections. If you are into soundtracks or library music you probably already think that even if not as prolific as some of the aforementioned classics, Mario Molino's name deserves to be also on the list since he was behind a number of albums that contain little gems such as 'Operazione Beat', 'I sogni del mare', 'Lamento Beat' or 'Bossa Jaguar' and also thanks to his guitar playing in works by other masters like Marcelo Giombini or even Mikis Theodorakis.
Gli Angeli del 2000 is a 1969 flick directed by Honil Ranieri that has all the drug, sex and counter culture ingredients of the era but which had very small distribution when first released - it was probably better distributed its photonovel version rather than the film itself! Bits of its soundtrack, though, have surfaced on different compilations in the past years, especially the famous 'Psyché
We have had access to the original tapes containing the complete sessions, including the tracks that built the 1969 soundtrack LP on CAM, plus six bonus tracks—five alternate takes from the same sessions plus an experimental electronic curiosity. The music is amazing. Top class Italian sounds for psych beat club dancers, cocktail easy goers and experimental groovers featuring the fabulous vocal talents of Edda dell'Orso—famous for her work in Alessandro Alessandroni's Cantori Moderni or in many Morricone soundtracks ('Meti una sera a cena' or 'C'erà una volta il west', for instance!)— and also featuring violinist, pianist, singer Nora Orlandi—herself also a composer of many soundtracks from the sixties and the seventies, here providing the backing vocals with her own famous I 2+2 di Nora Orlandi group.
A top class reissue, mastered from the original tapes with bonus alternate tracks added in a limited edition of only 500 copies that will sell like hot bread—order now before they are gone!
