CFS & BEAT pay homage to the Eurospy genre by releasing on CD the complete edition of Riz Ortolani's music for the spy film Tiffany Memorandum, directed in 1967 by Sergio Grieco. As this is the seventh volume of the label, in reference to the film genre this CD of ours has, not by chance, the catalog number CFS007, also in honor of the sixty years of James Bond, Secret Agent 007. For this CD of ours, we were able to use the mono tapes of the original session which allowed us to discover unreleased material, for a total length of 55:11. Riz Ortolani composed a brilliant score based on danceable music (as was in vogue at the time) which we can hear in "Beat fuga shake," which is frequently reprised throughout the score. This OST features wild "shake" rhythms alternated with suspenseful pieces for electric guitar, winds and percussion. Generally, a secret agent is always in the company of beautiful women, and this glamorous side of a spy is underlined by sensual and refined romantic themes. This CD is dedicated to the musical art of the great Maestro Riz Ortolani and is an essential addition to the collections of those who love the espionage genre, from James Bond, Matt Helm and Derek Flint to all of the Eurospy secret agents.
