Preorder: Releases December 7th 2023
The dear departed Detto Mariano wrote a very enjoyable comment, based on a love theme, that he retakes with pleasant instrumental variations alternated to funny tracks. The opening credits are introduced by the dance song “Step on dynamite” by “Clown”, which we will find later in two alternatives instrumental takes, and “La pigiatura”, performed by the choir with Patrizia Tapparelli, Mariano Perrella and Simona Aloisi. This latter track is the theme of the main movie scene, in which Elia dances while foot-crushing grapes in a big wooden vat. For this edition we utilized original recording session’s mono masters, integrated with rare stereo tracks, from Detto Mariano Estate archives, which bring the total LP running time up to 42:00 minutes. This edition also features the extremely rare “Si e no” (lyrics by the directors) both in Patrizia Tapparelli’s version and in the alternative instrumental take, try-outs for the end credits that remained unused.
