2007 release. Digitmovies present the first reissue in digipack format of the CD dedicated to the important international musician Miklós Rózsa releasing in a double-CD of the full stereo original motion picture score from the 1962 movie Sodom And Gomorrah, directed by Robert Aldrich (and Sergio Leone as second unit director). This double-disc set also celebrates the 52nd anniversary of the movie and its musical score. Miklós Rózsa's name is closely linked to hundreds of scores for romantic and dramatic cinema exploding effectively during the golden age of Hollywood. Miklós Rózsa's score was recorded in the studio "A" of RCA in Rome in June 1962. Rózsa has always been a researcher specialized in world music history. In the case of Sodom And Gomorrah he had performed deep research into Yemeni and Babylonian Jewish music so as to create the dances and prayer songs for choir in their original language. Thence the orchestral themes of pure fantasy are combined with motifs that have antique origins. For what concerns the OST discography of Sodom And Gomorrah, this score has been issued on 33rpm long-playing record by RCA in different countries all over the world. The first CD release of this OST in mono sound was issued on Cambria then the original American LP was reissued on the CD by BMG in stereo. The first complete and stereo version was issued in 1986 on a double-LP set. The realization of Digitmovies' double-CD was made possible -- once again -- thanks to the generous help of C.A.M. authorizing this reissue of this memorable OST including the six rare bonus tracks discovered on the original session master tapes: five alternative choral pieces and a Jewish dance piece that were recorded during the 1962 session but not used in the final version of the movie. Despite careful digital restoration and remastering some anomalies pre-existing on the original sources remain.
