Editorial Reviews

The trippier side of the Morricone genius. 'Morricone High' showcases the composer's work for Italian psychedelic and art movies of the late sixties & early seventies. Ennio Morricone's beautiful melodies are decorated by Edda Dell'Orso's spacious wordless vocals; 'scusi, facciamo l'amore?' (with the harmony singers I Cantori Moderni) (about the travails of a Neapolitan gigolo), 'le foto proibite di una signora per bene' (sex and crime Italian style) 'veruschka' (model on a psychedelic trip) and 'la donna invisible' (arty Mediterranean love triangle) are all sublime examples of the composer in his pomp. Eventually the layers of sensuality give way to the atonal but no less refined, 'notte e bambole' from the weird, dreamlike 'the short night of the glass dolls' (about catalepsy in art deco Prague) and the equally intense '1970' for Dario Argento's Giallo 'il gatto a nove code' starring Karl Malden as a blind writer of crossword puzzles who stumbles on a murderous plot. "I have scored 400 films and only 30 of them are westerns. If you scroll through all the movies I've worked on, you can understand how i was a specialist in westerns, love stories, political films, action thrillers, horror movies and so on. So in other words I'm no specialist, because I've done everything. I'm a specialist in music" Ennio Morricone, Rome 2002. El. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing December 7, 2010
By Joseph
Format:Audio CD
This album is a hard to find collection of some of Morricone's most psychedelic tracks. It's a gem, from start to finish. Highly worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Close your eyes and lose yourself in color. January 5, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection further explores the playful and experimental side of one of the great composers of the 20th. The soundscapes created and documented in this collection will transport the listener to a fantastic place (if you let them :)).
