Here at O/P we are huge fans of NYC film re-score maestros Morricone Youth, and are thrilled to bring you their latest LP release. We're also are giving away a unique Test Pressing Edition of the album to celebrate, details below...
The latest in a series of limited vinyl editions on Country Club Records, the band's score for Mario Bava's cult 1968 Italian comic-book action film Danger:Diabolik features killer versions of Ennio Morricone's original songs, as well as some blistering cues of their own.
The original soundtrack is much sought after- the master tapes were infamously lost in a studio fire, and it has only ever been available as an unofficial CD which includes dialogue and effects. It's one of Il Maestro's very best from his 60s Mondo period, and a true Holy Grail.
From the dangerously laid-back title theme 'Deep Down' (with breathless vocal matching that of Italian ye-ye singer Christy) to bangers like 'Valmont's Go-Go Pad' & 'Under Wah-Wah', Morricone Youth have delivered a version of this soundtrack which honours the fuzz-guitar-and-sitar-laden original, whilst adding a heady dose of their own soundtrack magic.
We are also carrying limited stock of the previous two Morricone Youth LPs at a very special low price, MAD MAX and SUNRISE: A Song of Two Humans.
To celebrate this awesome release, we have a unique Test Pressing Edition of Danger:Diabolik to give away at random to anyone who orders a Morricone Youth LP this week - competition ends at Midnight GMT on November 5th!
This version will feature bespoke packaging by O/P artist Scott Johannsson, similar to the edition he created previously for 'Night Of The Living Dead'.
