La Tigre E Ancora Viva: Sandokan Alla Riscossa! (Lp)
LP version. 180 gram vinyl. Gatefold sleeve. Digitmovies present the Guido and Maurizio De Angelis's original motion picture soundtrack for the movie La Tigre È Ancora Viva: Sandokan Alla Riscossa! (The Tiger Is Still Alive: Sandokan To The Rescue). At the time of release, a 45rpm single was issued (RCA BB 6135) featuring two tracks, for this LP Digitmovies have used the stereo master tapes found in the RCA vaults. After a slow and solemn strings introduction of the "Sandokan Theme", the new main theme is presented, for big orchestra and of epic flavor, called "Ritorno A Mompracem". This theme is reprised with several variations: with mandola and strings, slow and mystic, with flute, mandola, and bells, and in vocal version. The score is also enriched with very rhythmic action music, and of ethnic flavor. The Sandokan theme is reprised with an atonal way with reverberated harps. Although a digital restoration occurred some audio anomalies (pre-existing on the original sources) remain. Mompracem villagers are scared and left hungry by the ferocious Sultan Abdullah, a sovereign cowardly and cruel, serving the British. Jamilah, a young woman, returns to Mompracem to call the old "tigers" to battle, but is hunted by the sultan's guards and is about to be killed, but she was saved by the Greek adventurer Teotokris. The latter decides to help her, making a long journey to India in search of Sandokan, taking shelter there to convince him to resume his fight against the British.
