Quartet Records, Carosello Edizioni Musicali and Beat Records present an ultimate 2-CD expanded edition of Bruno Nicolai’s cult score for Femmine Insaziabili (1969).
Directed by Alberto de Martino, the film is about a journalist who is hot on the trail of investigating his friend’s mysterious death in a car accident. The journey takes him to funerals, orgies and interviews with some of the most beautiful women of Italian cinema (such as Luciana Paluzzi and Romina Power), all of whom have flashbacks to sexual escapades.
After working along with Ennio Morricone on previous engagements (BANDITS IN ROME, OK CONNERY), Bruno Nicolai went solo with this De Martino effort, kicking things off with “I Want It All,” a raunchy theme song performed by Lara Saint Paul both in English and Italian. Made up of groovy, funky instrumentals, psychedelic organ pieces and Edda Dell’Orso’s vocalism, it is simply one of the catchiest scores from the composer’s filmography.
FEMMINE INSAZIABILI was released on LP in 1969, and later reissued on CD in an expanded edition by Easy Tempo. This release contains the original album program on Disc 1, while the second disc features the complete film versions and bonus tracks, adding up to a generous program of over 100 minutes.
Produced by Enrico De Gemini and mastered by Chris Malone, the booklet includes richly illustrated liner notes by Gergely Hubai that provide cinematic context to this obscure movie, including the shocking details about its two different cuts.
