At the time, Cinevox Record released a 33 rpm (MDF 33/145) containing 15 selections. The first CD reissue was only released in Germany in 1990 (Alhambra A 8916), but the sound of that edition left something to be desired as the 33 rpm master had deteriorated. We have to wait until 2007 when the specialized Digitmovies printed an expanded CD (CDDM071) using the 1981 Session master tapes considered lost forever. The stereo elements were in perfect condition. For this brand new CD edition, for the first time on the CInevox Record label, we were able to find a first generation master piece assembled for the 33 rpm of the time by Ennio Morricone himself.
At the end of the album program alternate versions of the main themes are included. For our brand new Cinevox Record CD edition we have discovered two totally unreleased tracks to the delight of Ennio Morricone and Bud Spencer fans around the world.
