Tomas Milian as an actor, Umberto Lenzi as director and Franco Micalizzi to take care of the soundtrack in a 1977 poliziottesco classic.  "La Banda Del Gobbo" is the third installment in the saga where Milian plays the legendary Er Monnezza, along with that of the most famous mechanic in Italian cinema here he doubles up to also play that of his brother: Il Gobbo, of whom Er Monnezza is very proud because he is seen as a winner (although a bandit regularly involved in robberies). Here at the word robberies an automatic connection is established with the famous alfetta chases between thieves and policemen on the streets of Rome, and it is in this film that two songs by one of the Kings of Roman song, Antonello Venditti with "Sora Rosa" and "Roma Capoccia" can be heard.

But let's come to the 7″ vinyl made by Tava Tava: it features 3 sequences out of the 18 from the original soundtrack made by Franco Micalizzi. As you may already know, the composer is among Quentin Tarantino's favorites so much so that the director included in Grindhouse and Django the original theme from "Italia Mano Armata" in the former and "Lo chiamavano trinità" in the latter. With Umberto Lenzi in the 1970s/80s they formed an inseparable pair in Italian genre cinema: from "Il Giustiziere Sfida La Città" in '75 to "Hornsby & Rodriguez - Sfida Criminale" in 1992 for a total of 12 collaborations.
