I can't think of any other example where the subject matter/artwork is in such conflict with the music.this soundtrack is a delight but the image on the inside of the gatefold makes me feel physically sick and gives me nightmares.
In this instance one cannot exist without the other so I just choose to not look at the artwork if at all possible.incredible soundtrack though.

hey guys, can anyone tell me if this sounds better than the reissue remastered cd that came with the recent Grindhouse Releasing blu-ray set? im sure it does since its a LP and 180 gram but i just wanna hear some opinions if possible. thanks in advance. Long live Deodato! :D

Presentation wise, this is really the ultimate version of this soundtrack.. several prints of the various artwork concepts, gatefold, history, interviews and colour swirl vinyl that recalls the infamous 'turtle scene'.
As a package it definitely captures the essence of the movie.

Sound quality wise, when comparing it with my frequently listened 1995 CD version by Lucertola, this is a bit quieter but definitely still enjoyable, and a testament to one of Riz Ortolani's greatest works.

Be careful when buying this from discogs: my first copy (bought direct from OWS) of this had noticeable pops during the opening theme, which the label were more than helpful in replacing.. I doubt you can have the same service buying on the resale market.

Shame there's no black.
