Digitmovies, with collaboration of C.A.M. srl a division of Gruppo Sugar, is glad to release on CD for the first absolute time, in its complete form and in full stereo, the OST by Stelvio Cipriani for the movie" Le Mans, scorciatoia per l'inferno" (aka "Le Mans, Shortcut to Hell" – "Los circuitos de la muerte"); directed in 1970 by Osvaldo Civirani and starring Lang Jeffries, Edwige Fenech, Erna Schurer, Maurizio Bonuglia, Franco Pesce, Raf Baldassarre, Gaetano Imbrò, Franco Giornelli. The famous car race champion John Scott (Jeffries), after a serious accident during a race that has killed several people, stops racing but decides to stay within as an instructor. One day he meets Dustin Rich (Bonuglia), a young rider of great talent, but arrogant and conceited. Under his wing, Rich will become not only a great champion but also a great man. Stelvio Cipriani has managed to capture perfectly the heroic, adventurous and romantic side of the plot creating a whole series of cool Lounge themes. The author has composed a dance floor style main theme for full orchestra, beat rhythms and the voice of Edda introduced in the "Titoli" (Tr.1) that is alternated with fabulous dance floor tunes like Bossa varied with different instruments (Tr.2, Tr.5, Tr.7, Tr.10, Tr.11, Tr.13, Tr.15, Tr.17), "shake" dance floor music introduced by oriental atmosphere (Tr.3, Tr.8) or a "beat" march tune for brass and rhythms of Latin flavor (Tr.14). Part of the film is set in Spain so Stelvio Cipriani has composed flamenco music with Beat flavor (Tr.6), a piece for solo guitar (Tr.12) and a Deguello style tune for trumpet that reprises the main theme (Tr.16). The film and the CD close with a fascinating beguine with the voice of Edda and orchestra. Legendary Stelvio!!
