Press Release from Kronos:
Kronos Records is proud to present the soundtrack to the 1961 Remigio Del Grosso film URSUS E LA RAGAZZA TARTARA (Tartar Invasion). The film starred Yoko Tani, Roland Lesaffre, Ettore Manni, Grazia Maria Spina, Joe Robinson and Akim Tamiroff. Music by legendary composer ANGELO FRANCESCO LAVAGNINO (composer of SALADINO and a myriad other gorgeous scores).
The score was never released before in any format and is a worldwide exclusive to Kronos Records, courtesy of the SUGAR / CAM Vaults. The CD contains all the music Maestro Lavagnino composed for the film presented in film order, including various pieces that did not make it in the film, since production used stock music instead of these original pieces. A big orchestral score for this epic adventure film, with a peplum flavour in unique A.F. LAVAGNINO fashion! and conducted by another of Italy's Golden Age composers, CARLO FRANCI.
A Big Epic score that is definitely not to be missed by any fan of Maestro Lavagnino's music and fans of big scale adventure scores of the 1960's!!!
