This 1962 film written and directed by Emimmo Salvi is a hidden gem of the peplum genre and boasts a truly magnificent and epic score by Maestro Marcello Giombini. He is mainly known for his Spaghetti westerns, Ehi, amico c'è Sabata hai chiuso (1969) and È tornato Sabata hai chiuso un'altra volta (1971), but he did write music for various other genres. The music we are hereby presenting on this compact disc , courtesy of the Sugar/CAM vaults is released for the first timein any format on Kronos Records, The Gold Collection. We have restored this work with much love and dedication and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
This CD is a limited edition of 500 copies. Order it now or be sorry when it's sold out.
A must for all Marcello Giombini and peplum fans.
