Eastern tinged Italian library music by Rino “Awake” De Filippi. Recorded in 1972 at Orthofonic Studio in Rome by historic RCA sound engineer Pino Mastroianni, with collaborators including the drummer Vincenzo Restuccia and Bruno Battisti D’Amario on stringed and ethnic instruments. Includes the mid-tempo funk-break tune “Oriente Contemplativo”. Limited edition of 500 copies in a glossy cover.
One of the most sought after library LPs, breathtaking east meets west musical ideas by one of the absolute masters of Italian composition. A rarely seen LP - even rarer with a sleeve! Jonny Trunk ( Vice / Record Collector / Mojo UK)
