Blink and L'Assassino has disappeared, most likely to exorbitant secondary market pricing. It's a crazy business. Toto Diabolicus

It is obvious that many of the Quartet titles sold out due to their large summer sale last year:

I'll admit that may have had an impact on moving units. smile

I hope Les adolescentes does well but maybe stick around a bit longer as a highly recommended Piccioni release for the enthusiasts particularly focused on dramatic underscore.

It also seems that neither Beat nor Digitmovies were interested to release LE COPPIE on CD.

At least Beat has now been interested in releasing some other RCA titles on CD. smile
Both Teo Usuelli´s LA RIVOLUZIONE SESSUALE (1968) and Armando Trovajoli´s RIUSCIRANNO I NOSTRI EROI... (1969) which come from the same RCA catalogue will be released on 28th March:

I'm just listening to an excellent Piccioni score that has probably been mentioned before in this long thread: ALISTAIR MacLEAN's PUPPET ON A CHAIN. As they say in the booklet, the movie is "underpinned by Maestro Piccioni's blistering Hammond-heavy score". Oddly enough, it has been released by Silva Screen.

Stefan, back to the brief discussion we had about Nicolai, I checked out SoundtrackCollector about IL CAPPOTTO DI ASTRAKAN and found...no album at all! Still, I knew I had a track from this score on this LP:

https://www.discogs.com/Various-Ciak-Selezione-Di-Colonne-Sonore-Originali/release/2770974

Didn't play t for ages and I must say the Nicolai cue from this score was not my favourite one. Let's' hope the complete score has more to offer. However, I remember from this LP that the track Correre a Roma by Micalizzi was terrific. Do you know from which score it stems and if it is available on CD somewhere? Thanks in advance.

The same track from IL CAPPOTTO DI ASTRAKAN - which is indeed more of an easy listening Nicolai score - can also be found on the CAM CML LP 192 "Sweetness N° 2":
https://www.discogs.com/de/Various-Sweetness-N2/release/2755635

The Micalizzi track "Correre a Roma" comes from the Tomas Milian police comedy DELITTO A PORTA ROMANA from 1980. The CD with the complete score is available on Digitmovies:

Thanks as usual for your truly amazing expertise, Stefan. It seems as though there is no question you can't answer! Do you have all these informations in mind or do you resort to a sort of personal archive? Anyway, I've seen this Micalizzi score is still available and I'll order it. Let's hope the rest of the score is as good as GENOVA A MANO ARMATA, one of the very CD's I own from this composer. I'm listening to the punchy main theme on a compilation album called CINEMA A MANO ARMATA, made of concert versions.

Laurent, it depends on which infos we are talking about. It is clear that I have many informations in mind, but of course not everything and therefore I have also the help of a personal archive with good sources.
Personally, I am certainly not a great fan of Micalizzi´s scores, but in this particular case it is very helpful that I have two catalogues (which contain a few hundred pages in DIN A4 format) which CAM had made in 1984 - and copies of these catalogues have got into the hands of a few soundtrack collectors many years ago - where they had listed all the tracks which they had ever released on LP, EP or Single till 1984. I suppose that CAM had to put together these catalogues due to SIAE purposes.
In the one list you can find all the tracks sorted alphabetically and by composer, and with the numbers in the first row of that list you can then find all the corresponding film titles in the second catalogue. In fact, it is a kind of interesting puzzle game, but it is true that with these two lists you can find almost any track which CAM had ever released on records till 1984 and also the film to which it belongs.

Some very exciting News:
Piero Piccioni's Son Jason has set up a label called Camille 3000


Exciting news indeed! Particularly so because they have announced that both of these titles will be getting a CD release, albeit a limited run of 500. (I'll take it!)

The 26-track LP release of Camille 2000 on the Blind Faith label a year or two back contained some music that was not on the older Easy Tempo release. With 28 tracks, this upcoming CD release looks to be expanded just a little more; the two new tracks appear to be track #26 ("Tears In Brasil" - alternate 3) and track #28 ("Camille 2000" - alternate take).

"Il Mondo Di Notte" appears to be new to CD. Fantastic! Hopefully the younger Mr. Piccioni has access and the resources to release a few more of the Piccionis that have eluded us so far!

In other news, Sonor Music Editions is releasing "Al Cinema Con Piero Piccioni," in an LP run of 300 copies.

https://sonormusiceditions.bandcamp.com/album/al-cinema-con-piero-piccioni

It looks like they have taken the contents of 2 LPs originally issued by RCA in the late 60's ("Al Cinema Con Piero Piccioni" Volumes 1 & 2) and distilled it down to a single LP.

Digitmovies re-releasing Le Streghe on May 16 2018?!?! If you missed this one previously, don't make that mistake again!

http://www.digitsoundtracks.com/site/en/products/CDDM296/

Looks like both CD and LP versions will be available.

Thanks wayoutwest & purplemonkeydishwasher for keeping us updated.

That Piccioni's son Jason is a prime mover on these albums' productions seems hopeful to me that we can witness more such gems in the future.

Great about Il Mondo di Notte (1959). I have the LP but will certainly appreciate a clean copy.

In fact, this is more than just a clean copy of the LP as the tapes for the CD came from Piccioni´s private archive. The original tapes that Sugar/CAM has on the other hand are only in mono.
So this is great news that Sugar have given their permission that those private tapes in stereo could indeed be used for the new CD. Something which is not as easy as it may seem and which might therefore be a precedent for other such cases:

"The original album was issued in mono vinyl and contained fourteen track selections performed by Piero's big band, choir and orchestra and also features some great vocals by one the composer’s favourite singers, Lydia MacDonald. This superb score is re-issued for the very first time on CD and for the first time includes ten previously unreleased tracks from the Maestro's private and original tape collection, and is here presented in stereo!"

I pre-ordered "Il Mondo di Notte" direct from Camille 3000 and received it last week (I am in the US). Another winner! Lots of variety on this soundtrack -- some jazzy, some exotica-tinged, some vocal tracks. A quality product just as wonderful as the releases from our other "specialty labels."

I received an email from Camille 3000 shortly after I ordered, letting me know that the release date had been pushed back a couple weeks from the original May 2nd date so they could correct a printing error. But clearly it is now shipping!

I've also received the Sonor LP release of "Al Cinema Con Piero Piccioni" and although LP is not my preferred medium, this is a first-rate pressing on heavy vinyl. I dubbed it to a CD-R on first play-through and the sound quality, to me, is indistinguishable from a CD release.

Over the past year or so I've been exploring the music by Piero Piccioni. FSM's Kenner/ More Than A Miracle was a recent buy and it's a thing of beauty! (Thanks Lukas & co.) To anyone who is Piero Piccioni saavy, what other score(s) of his are similar in style: haunting, lyrical and just downright gorgeous?

The Dusty Groove website now has "Camille 2000" and "Il Mondo Di Notte" in their "Coming Soon" section with an expected arrival of June 15th. Though they list the label as "CAM," these must be the Camille 3000 releases. (CAMille 3000 ?)

Dunno, but maybe Alberto Sordi is something like vegemite.

Has anybody received Camille 2000 from Camille 3000 by way of ear?
