CD from Italy.
From Digitmovies: "Digitmovies is glad to remember the very great Alberto Sordi by releasing for the very first time on CD in full stereo the OST by Piero Piccioni for the movie “Finchè c’è guerra c’è speranza” (aka “Where there was war there’s hope”) directed by and starring Alberto Sordi with Silvia Monti, Alessandro Cutolo, Matilde Costa Giuffrida, Edoardo Faceta,Mauro Firmani, Eliana De Santis, Fernando Daviddi. Piero Piccioni has written one of his nicest OSTs with ethnic colours from Africa and from Latin America: it was indeed for this movie that the composer has written a theme which has become the one among many that identifies the comical, but also nostalgic figure of Alberto Sordi: “Rugido do leao”, a sparkling samba the actor-director wanted to be re-used as main title for the very popular TV program “Story of an Italian” conceived, realized and hosted by Sordi himself, containing selected scenes from his movies and broadcasted during four seasons between 1979 and 1986. For this CD we could use the first generation stereo master tape assembled for the original album issued in 1974 (General Music ZSLGE 1001) (33:24) which in fact contains all the music recorded for the movie and we were able to discover three unreleased versions of “Rugido do leao” which brings our CD to a total duration of 41:00." Berto Pisano conducts.
