Digitmovies presents for the first time on CD complete and in full stereo the OST by Stelvio Cipriani from the action movie "La notte degli squali" (Aka "Night of the Sharks") directed in 1987 by Tonino Ricci and starring Treat Williams, Antonio Fargas, Janet Agren, Christopher Connelly, Sal Borghese, John Steiner, Egidio Termine, Nina Soldano. David (Williams) is a shark hunter who has taken hold of a disc containing some top secrets. Some killers are hired by a multinational corporation: the man defends himself against criminal attacks, between chases and gunfires, after having exterminated the gangsters from the sharks, David faces the boss of the organization. Stelvio Cipriani is one of the most noted and beloved Italian composers around the world who has composed more than 300 soundtracks for the cinema of every genre and who is internationally famous for such hits as "Anonimo Veneziano" and the theme from the Western movie "Un uomo,un cavallo e una pistola" which on the American RCA single with the cover version made by Henry Mancini and his orchestra sold over one million of copies. For "La notte degli squali" Cipriani has composed an electronic OST with the typical disco/rock sound of the 80s by writing a rhythmic action theme for the protagonist David, introduced in Titoli di testa (Tr.1), which gets alternated with mysterious and dark atmospheres and with a recurring love theme. Although the movie was a hit in the USA, Great Britain, Spain and above all in Japan, a 45 rpm or 33 rpm record with the score wasn't issued at the time of the film's release, but only 5:32 suite saw the light on a Japanese CD compilation in 1996. For this CD we have used the stereo master tapes of the original recording session assembling 58:26, which is all that was originally recorded for the movie (with the exclusion of some library music taken from other movies).This CD wants to pay tribute to the music art of Stelvio Cipriani, an always versatile artist who decade after decade continues to never disappoint his fans.
