2014 release. Finders Keepers Records proudly unveils what is perhaps the crowning moment for both composer Bruno Nicolai and actress Edwige Fenech, with score of Tutti i colori del buio (All the Colours of the Dark), the film that inaugurated them, with director Sergio Martino, into the giallo canon in 1972. Presented here as an alternative to the extremely rare 1973 Gemelli library edition, this release includes the film's previously unreleased hard-hitting left-field psychedelic pop themes performed by a trio of Nicolai with sitar-wielding Alessandro Alessandroni (in true Pawnshop/Braen's Machine mode) and Italian cinematic songbird Edda Dell'Orso. Recorded in January 1972 at Ennio Morricone's Ortophonic Studio in Rome (birthplace of Goblin's Roller and Alessandroni's soundtrack to Sangue di sbirro (Cop's Blood) (1976), among many other classics), All the Colours of the Dark is a balance of psychotic free jazz, aggressive bass driven beats, schizoid Eastern motifs, and childlike lullabies -- with the last element augmenting Martino's proud Rosemary's Baby influences in his tale of a rehabilitated relationship plagued by recurring nightmares and vague memories of a religious cult. To claim this score as Nicolai's all-time best is perhaps a little hasty for this versatile composer of such acclaim and widespread appeal, but for fans of that unique window of unhinged musical opportunity which came with the giallo boom of the early 1970s, this record epitomizes the world of Fabio Frizzi, Goblin, and Walter Rizzati. Pressed on red vinyl; includes poster.
