The score for the Italian version was written by Piero Piccioni, who created a fun, easy-listening exotica score with memorable percussion work. The score was conducted by Bruno Nicolai features contributions by the choir of Alessandro Alessandroni. The American score was written by AIPÕs in-house composer Les Baxter, who revisits his early exotica roots in this immensely memorable, nostalgic soundtrack thatÕs as great of as concept album as it is a successful film score. Both scores had been released already: PiccioniÕs music was put out on LP by Cinevox and a slightly expanded CD as well. Our program contains the complete material from the recording sessions with several alternates that didnÕt even made it to the film. Les BaxterÕs music was released on LP by the short-lived American International Records and hasnÕt been released on CD until now. Actual LP masters with this re-recording versions have long since vanished, so this release is mastered from mint condition stereo copy of album.In addition to releasing the highly sought-after original soundtrack, weÕre proud to present the complete score from the film, courtesy of the MGM vaults,including several unreleased bits and pieces (the restored album is in stereo, the additional material is in mono).
The generous 16-page booklet is richly illustrated with titillating artwork and rare stills from the film. Liner notes by rejected score expert Gergely Hubai discuss the film, PiccioniÕs and BaxterÕs music, plus a detailed explanation on why score replacements like this were so prominent in the 1960s.
