Digitmovies is re-releasing the OST by Luciano Michelini for the film "Silent Action" (aka "Chopper Squad", original title "La polizia accusa: il servizio segreto uccide").
Luciano Michelini created symphonic background music that alternates romanticism with drama and mystery. Our CD opens with the theme of the opening credits, a dark motif produced by strings, percussion and piano which is reprised later in the film. A second recurring motif is a love theme that is introduced in a slow, romantic version with a modern arrangement that alternates with a fast, extravagant march. Initially only the mono mixed tapes were found, but further research into the RCA archives brought to light the stereophonic tape of a previously unreleased LP montage.

In July, 1974, the Italian news reports the tragic deaths of a major, a colonel and a general. Commissioner Solmi investigates the apparently random accidents but focuses on the subsequent assassination of an electrical engineer who he finds out is actually a private investigator. While Judge Mannino reprimands Solmi for his methods, his journalist friend Maria helps him. He comes into contact with Captain Mario Sperlì, a secret political agent working at the Special Information Office, who shows interest in the case and admits to the existence of a failed coup against government security. The investigations, however, are stalled when the accumulation of both crimes and clues forces Mannino to side with the commissioner. Solmi discovers a map and follows his intuition which leads to the identification of a clandestine training camp and the arrest of the guilty party.
