Reissue 2016, blue vinyl.


“Questa specie d’amore” is a 1972 movie by Alberto Bevilacqua, here in a dual role of writer and director, since the film is taken from his book by the same name. Two years after “La Califfa”, Bevilacqua confirmed Ugo Tognazzi as the main actor and Ennio Morricone as soundtrack composer. While the first one confirms himself as an exceptional protagonist, in the dual role of father and son, the second is not far behind, as the author of a beautiful romantic and poignant. Yet another excellent product of the film and musical Italian, set in the socio-political ferment of the early 70s.

The score of “Questa specie d’amore” was published on a full-length LP in ’72, a very rare item today, and later on CD with the addition of seven tracks. This reissue is the very first ever on vinyl, and presents a renewed artwork and includes all the sixteen cuts of the complete edition of the soundtrack.

“Beautiful work from Ennio Morricone – quite uplifting, even if the general theme is a bit dark and contemplative! Gone are some of the atonal moments of other scores from the time, and in their place are some wonderful passages on strings and piano, with occasional isolated solos on harpsichord or oboe, snaking around in those captivatingly subtle melodies that Morricone could cook up when he really wanted! The album reminds us a bit of a more flowery version of Foto Proibite or La Donna Invisible ” DusryGroove
