Orzowei Il Figlio Della Savana (Lp)
LP version. 180 gram vinyl; Gatefold sleeve. Digitmovies present the complete edition of the original soundtrack for the Italian cult TV series Orzowei composed by the prolific brothers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis for the first time in full stereo. Based on the novel Orzowei written by Alberto Manzi and issued in 1955, the story was adapted into 13 episodes of an international TV hit series which was produced in 1976 by Italian and German companies. It was directed by the French filmmaker Yves Allégret and starred Peter Marshall as Isa Orzowei, the British star Stanley Baker, Doris Kunstmann, Vincenzo Crocitti, and Bonne Lubega. This TV program was broadcasted in Italy in early 1977 and presented again with version especially re-edited for cinema theaters called Orzowei - Il Figlio Della Savana (Orzowei - Son of the Savannah). Isa, a white child abandoned in the forest of South Africa, is found and raised like a son by an old great warrior and by an old woman, both of them belonging to the Swazi people, an ethnic grouping of the Bantu tribe. Only one single was issued: RCA BB 6054, a very big international record hit. Taken from the stereo master tapes which have been well preserved in the RCA archives. Concerning Orzowei besides the 45 rpm single versions "Orzowei" and "Le Notti Di Orzowei", there are also alternate takes of the famous theme song like a different mix, the instrumental version, an evocative version with an echoed solo flute, the very cool karaoke version, an alternate take of "Le Notti Di Orzowei" without flute (all the original material discovered on the master tapes). Digitmovies discovered on another master tape three extra alternate takes. An OST of the '70s Italian TV cult.
