Full Length Jewel Case CD
We are really proud to still have a few copies left of this rare soundtrack which is really good!
Digitmovies presents on CD the complete original motion picture soundtrack by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis from the movie 'La tigre ancora viva: Sandokan alla riscossa' directed in 1977 by Sergio Sollima and starring Kabir Bedi who reprises his role of Sandokan created by Emilio Salgari, in the theatrical sequel of the super huge 1976 Tv success. At that time only a 45 rpm single was issued (Rca BB 6135) featuring two tracks, but for this CD we have used the stereo master tapes found in the Rca vaults that gave us the chance this release so waited for by the Guido & Maurizio De Angelis fans. After a slow and solemn strings introduction of the 'Sandokan theme', the new main theme is presented, for big orchestra and of epic flavour called 'Ritorno a Mompracem' (Tr.1). This theme is reprised with several variations: with mandola and strings (Tr.6), slow and mystic (Tr.11, Tr.14), flute a bec solo (Tr.16), with flute,mandola and bells (Tr.18),in a heroic version (Tr.19) and in vocal version (Tr.21). The score is also enriched with very rhythmic action music like Tr.2, Tr.8,Tr,13,Tr.20,others of ethnic flavour (Tr.5,Tr.9,Tr.10). The Sandokan theme is reprised with an atonal way with reverberated harps in Tr.4 and Tr.12 and in its original version with a strings intro (Tr.22). As bonus track we have included the off vocal version of the theme song (TR.23). Although a digital restoration occurred some audio anomalies (pre-existing on the original sources) remain.
