Goodfellas present a reissue of Ennio Morricone's soundtrack for La Classe Operaia Va In Paradiso, originally released in 1971. La Classe Operaia Va in Paradiso was another strike for maestro Ennio Morricone, one of the most in-demand composers and arrangers of the time. Avant-garde and slo-funk - with scary fuzz and wah-wah guitars - collide on the track "Metamorfosi" and before you know it, you are in the same vertigo generated by Gruppo D'improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza. Classical and lush orchestrations are found, while pounding rhythms are the main course for the original theme: a violin solo offers a dramatic view of the main score just before an aggressive guitar break enters the psych-o-rama. The movie directed by Elio Petri was a dramatic take on the main social issue of the early '70s, dealing with the heavy conditions of the working class. This is one of the most sought-after soundtracks of Morricone's experimental side, evident by the original tribute set by John Zorn for The Big Gundown in 1986 ("Metamorfosi" was then performed by a who's who cast of stars featuring Vernon Reid, Bob James and Diamanda Galas).
