Tip! LP edition. The legendary Torso (1973), considered one of the precursors of the slasher genre, was directed by Sergio Martino following the success of All the Colors of the Dark (1972), featuring a stunning soundtrack composed by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis also known as Oliver Onions. In 1973 a 26 minutes-long stereo LP was prepared for RCS's promo SP series, but it got cancelled and the 45 rpm didn't see the light, neither. In 1999 BMG printed out a CD (OST 145) with the editing found in RCA's archives and paired it with a selection from Bruno Nicolai's ''Gatti rossi in un labirinto di vetro'' OST. Back in 2008, when we printed the full 33 tracks-long CD version, we mistakenly wrote ''stereo'' on the cover, but the music actually came from the mono session recorded for the movie.
When Dagored printed a double LP (RED219C), in 2015, they used our mono CD as source. This new revised CD version (running time 70:38 minutes) carries the top eleven tracks in stereo version (identical to the 1973 unpublished album and to the 1999 CD) and the following twenty-two tracks in mono version. Guido & Maurizio De Angelis composed an OST which was perfect for the scenes but which also has its own life outside the movie, where a quite cheerful and pop main theme alternates with mysterious and suspended ones, at times with dark and frightening voices. An OST for a cult movie, loved by fans all over the world.
