In stock


*2022 stock* Digitmovies continues to explore with great enthiusiasm the wide territory of the Italian Peplum by releasing for the very first time the complete versions - as volume XV of the series dedicated to this prolific genre - of three orchestral OST by Carlo Rustichelli on one CD. They were composed for three adventure movies placed in the desert and steppe, all of them directed by Amerigo Anton (aka Tanio Boccia) in 1964 and starring Kirk Morris, one of the noted faces of the Italian Peplum.

This CD is possible one more time thanks to the big help of C.A.M. who have perfectly preserved in their vaults the mono mastertapes containing all that M° Rustichelli had originally recorded for these three movies. Much of the score material within these movies was filled with library music by the same composer, but all of the main themes and their variations were especially composed for them. Four tracks from "Il dominatore del deserto" have already been availalble on the 45 rpm EP C.A.M. EP.45 - 121, two tracks from "Maciste alla corte dello Zar" on the 45 rpm C.A.M. CA. 2568 and four tracks from " I predoni della steppa" on the 45 rpm EP C.A.M. CEP. 45 - 115.

We have now added eighteen unreleased tracks which we discovered on the mono mastertapes and which bring our CD to a total length of 53:36. Carlo Rustichelli, who has been much inspired by the desert, steppe and other exotic locations used in these three movies, has succeeded in creating magnificent epic themes with a middle-eastern flavour which refer back to the great fables from the past like "the thousand and one nights", alternated with exotic dances and battle themes. Another proper score rescue of the Italian Silver Age.
