High Crime (1973)
Policía Detiene, La Ley Juzga, La (1973, Spain)
Maybe the most iconic soundtrack by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis. Definitely the one that is closely linked with Italian crime movie genre "poliziotteschi", made eternal by dozens movies set in mid 70's violent big cities.
For the 50th anniversary of the movie Beat Records rleases a deluxe reissue of this Italian soundtrack's masterpiece. A terrific tracklist that gave rise to the Italian groove, then used many times, from Umberto Lenzi's Napoli Violenta to Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof. A groundbreaking and hard-beat sound, innovative compared to others Italian soundtracks of the period. An acid rock with funk episodes (Gangster Story), cinematic prog (The Life of a Policemen), magical bossa (Casa di moda), with psychedelic flutes (by Guido), sublime guitars and arrangements (by Maurizio).
Available in a heavy weight colored vinyl (black and red), artwork by Daniele De Gemini, Mastering by Enrico De Gemini featuring a nice Easter Egg we are sure will make happy this music fans.
