We are rereleasing the complete OST on CD by Bruno Nicolai for the comedy film "When Women Lost Their Tails" (aka "Quando Le Donne Persero La Coda").
Originally C.A.M. had never released any disc with the OST by Bruno Nicolai from the movie "When Women Lost Their Tails," although Ennio Morricone had released an LP for the film "When Women Had Tails" in 1970 (SAG 9032). Finally in 2000 C.A.M. rereleased Morricone's OST from the first film for the first time on CD (CAM 495375-2), which was combined with six tracks from Maestro Nicolai, inspired by the sequel. We should start by saying that "When Women Lost Their Tails" also contains music by Ennio Morricone taken from the first film, and we discovered that a previously unreleased master stereo album had been created by Maestro Nicolai with twelve tracks lasting a total of 31:33 minutes. Now we are pleased to offer all the music specially written and recorded for the film that will delight the fans of Maestro Nicolai around the world.

Ham the "Paleodrictus" and his gargantuan wife, Katorcia, arrive to a small community of cave dwellers who had, until then, lived in complete ignorance of commercial trade. Ham is from a superior civilization and once he realizes how ignorant the cave dwellers are, he decides to exploit them for his own benefit and for that of his insatiable wife.
Now that the concept of money has been introduced into the cave dwellers' clean minds, Ham sets up shop and forces the cavemen to work hard for a measly salary. The "paleodrictus" grows rich by reselling food at exorbitant prices to the cave dwellers who picked it, and even convinces them to give him their woman, Phyllis. Because she is jealous of Katorcia, Ham devises a plan to earn more money and to give his wife to the cavemen. Driven by his insatiable thirst for profit, however, he doesn't last long with Phyllis and throws her into prostitution.
