Even if you find the 1969 film “EAT IT", a film bit 'too weak-willed of social satire and advertising, the first and last of director Francesco Casaretti, you can not miss out on the soundtrack from the two-time Academy Award winner Ennio Morricone, composed during his most prolific and experimental period and available for the first time from original master tapes. Morricone wrote a score that is, as always, brilliant, conducted by Bruno Nicolai with the choir I Cantori Moderni di Alessandro Alessandroni. The tracks range between danceable (A5, A6, A7 and even a "Dies Irae", B2), a known nursery rhyme almost deformed interpolated into the main theme, classical motifs, romantic, with a touch of bossa nova, all of which embrace all the psychological and environmental nuances of alienation and paradox that mark the plot of the film. There are also disturbing and abstract experimentalisms that make this soundtrack unique. Particularly in "Quinta Variazione / Africami" with the fuzzy guitar by Alessandroni, and "Settima Variazione" with its three dreamy amazing underwater variants (A7, A8 and B6) and ending with "Eat it", in the same version as the highly collected 45rpm that came out at the time and is, until now, the only existing track on vinyl from this score; a today legendary cult object and sought for the killer heavy drum by Vincenzo Restuccia and distorted psychedelic Fender Stratocaster of Alessandro Alessandroni.
