Puppet On A Chain
"DC Recordings is proud to present the previously unreleased soundtrack to Geoffrey Reeve's Puppet On A Chain. Based on Alistair Maclean's novel of the same name, the film tells the story of Paul Sherman, an Interpol narcotics agent who arrives in Amsterdam to investigate a gang of heroin smugglers. The music that accompanies the film comes courtesy of one of Italy's most prolific and respected soundtrack composers -- Piero Piccioni -- who has over 150 film scores to his name including Alberto Lattuadas' I Dolci Inganni, Luchino Visconti's The Stranger, Jean-Luc Godard's Contempt and Francesco Rosi's Salvatore Giuliano. Often mentioned in the same breath as his peer's Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai, Piccioni's work has always embraced the celluloid spectrum, from demented sex comedies and spaghetti Westerns to bloody horror exploitation flicks. Recorded in 1970 Puppet On A Chain is a blistering, Hammond-heavy score that effortlessly mixes elements of sybaritic lounge listening, hard edged, beat driven funk/jazz and big band swagger."
