Japanese composer Toshiro Mayuzumi may be best-known for writing the Oscar-nominated score for John HustonÕs The Bible: In the BeginningÉ (1966), but he has many other scores that are waiting to be discovered in studio archives. His work on Safari 5000 may be one of the best Italian-style film score not written by an Italian, featuring a wonderful, heroic theme for Yžjir™ IshiharaÕs driver character. Though it takes places in the 1960s, the film is occasionally scored like a traditional Italo-Western, including whistling and a choral performance of the main theme!

This is a premiere presentation of the score which hasnÕt been released in any form until now, beatifully mastered by Claudio Fuiano from the original stereo mastertapes, courtesy of Gruppo Sugar. The richly illustrated 8-page booklet features liner notes by Gergely Hubai who discusses this rarely seen film and shares his insights about the music.
