In 1968, the animated movie VIP MIO FRATELLO SUPERUOMO was released, a genial story about consumerism told through the pen of the great cartoonist and director Bruno Bozzetto. MiniVip and SuperVip are two superhero brothers who get mixed up in an international conspiracy involving Happy Betty, owner of a market chain that thanks to a peculiar gadget is able to force people to buy things exclusively from her stores.
The score by Franco Godi is possibly the most suitable soundtrack that could have been created for this cartoon. It's full of great sonorities of the period, still fresh and without age, sparkling with sumptuous orchestrations, lounge style and funk derivations. Herbert Pagani and Nora Orlandi (with her vocal group 4+4) both recorded songs for the album, bringing an additional element of quality to the artistic landscape.
We present with this CD another useful gadget, a thin cardboard tunnel-box slipcase featuring the covers of both VIP MIO FRATELLO SUPERUOMO and WEST & SODA (another score for a cartoon of the same name by the same director, coming soon in January 2015), which will allow you to display the two soundtracks dedicated to the animated movies of the wonderful Bruno Bozzetto together on the shelf.
The CD is packaged in a jewel case with a 12-page booklet full of original Bruno Bozzetto artwork, with audio mastering by Claudio Fuiano and liner notes (in Italian and English) by Andrea Morandi (CIAK magazine).
