Signore E Signori
After the complete editions of Divorzio All’Italiana and Sedotta E Abbandonata Digitmovies, in collaboration with Gruppo Sugar, continues with great pleasure to pay homage to the great cinema of Pietro Germi and the legendary music of Carlo Rustichelli by issuing now the score of Signore E Signori. For their CD  first generation mono master tapes of the recording session were used that allowed them, in addition to re-creating the album of that time (37:26), to find  about 24:20 of unreleased material. Carlo Rustichelli wrote music for a small ensemble with lounge flavour featuring an allegretto theme in a circus and amusement park style, a perfect background to the gossip of the protagonists, which is frequently reprised and alternated with lounge music, and a romantic love theme. The final result is an homage to the Italian Silver Age.
Maciste L’eroe Più Grande Del Mondo
Digitmovies, together with the Sugar Group, presents Volume XXVI of the series dedicated to the Italian Peplum with the complete score, in full stereo, by Francesco De Masi for the movie Maciste L’eroe Più Grande Del Mondo (aka Goliath and the Sins of Babylon). On the stereo master tapes of the original session thirteen new tracks (28:57) were discovered which gives a total time to 70:11. Francesco De Masi has composed a varied symphonic score featuring an epic march motif introduced in "Main Titles", alternated with a romantic love theme and several dramatic as well as mysterious battle themes. For the character of the dwarf, Maestro De Masi has written a funny theme in contrast with the glorious atmosphere of the plot. This CD is a necessary rescue and preservation in honor of the great musical art of Francesco De Masi.
I Due Vigili/Ma Chi Ti Ha Dato La Patente?
Also from Digitmovies comes, for the very first time, the complete score in full stereo by Carlo Rustichelli for two comedies: I Due Vigili and Ma Chi Ti Ha Dato La Patente? Carlo Rustichelli always had a great quality: He never made a difference between A or the B movies, and the final result of his soundtracks was always remarkable. For I Due Vigili Maestro Rustichelli has composed for the Main Titles a wild Go Go dance floor “shake” for orchestra and choir, that returned in an alternative version for the scene where young people are dancing in a flat and their noise causes the neighborhood to call the two funny cops. For Ma Chi Ti Ha Dato La Patente? Carlo Rustichelli wrote a nice theme performed by whistle, choir and orchestra, a love theme with a jazz flavor, funny themes with a circus flavor, and a charming slow ballad with a baroque-beat flavor performed by I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni. For this CD (47:20) every note recorded in stereo during the original sessions was used.
