Digitmovies present a reissue of Romolo Grano's original soundtrack for Ho Incontrato Un'ombra, originally released in 1974. A rare LP from the world of 1970s Italian cult TV. Ho Incontrato Un'ombra ("I Have Met a Shadow) was broadcast by RAI Television in Italy in 1974. The success of this screenplay was also due to the soundtrack written by Romolo Grano. The main theme "A Blue Shadow" became a record and radio hit thanks to composer Berto Pisano's evocative orchestral arrangement which was released on the EP single (along with "Tema di Silvia") (1974). The leitmotif was also included on an LP under the same label (also containing other songs not related to the background music of this TV series). The true original soundtrack of Ho Incontrato Un'ombra only came out on a promotional album under RCA's label Pegaso, with Grano's music beautifully arranged and conducted by Berto Pisano. Fortunately, Digitmovies managed to recover the stereo master in excellent condition which had been assembled in the '70s for the limited-edition audio vinyl. It's one of the rarest recordings on the collector's market. The master tape includes virtually everything that had been recorded for the TV series and which was re-edited in different scenes. The sad and romantic main theme with a hint of mystery is introduced and is reprised in a nostalgic guitar piece and again with electronic harpsichord. This beautiful main theme is alternated with danceable lounge music and suspense, as well as with the sad and sensual "Tema Di Silvia" for sax and orchestra. The recording session featured two extraordinarily gifted soloists: Oscar Valdambrini on trumpet and Edda Dell'Orso with her incredibly beautiful voice, an orchestral instrument in all respects. 180 gram vinyl; Edition of 250.
