Bruno Nicolai - Perche Quelle Strane Gocce Di Sangue Sul Corpo Di Jennifer? (1972)

Attention giallo fans! Here is the soundtrack to the 1972 film "Perche Quelle Strane Gocce Di Sangue Sul Corpo Di Jennifer?" (I love how long giallo titles get!). Alternate English titles include "The Case of the Bloody Iris" and "What Are Those Strange Drops of Blood Doing on Jennifer's Body?". The film was Directed by Giuliano Carnimeo and stars a more often than not turtle-necked George Hilton and the lovely Edwige Fenech. The soundtrack was composed by Bruno Nicolai and features some top shelf arrangements, which raises the question: why is this soundtrack so obscure? I've never seen this full soundtrack online before anywhere. ...This is Bruno at his best! The soundtrack is full of catchy main title themes, light and breezy bossa novas, a couple of darker widescreen grooves and plenty of orchestral suspense and black leather-gloved killer themes. The soundtrack also features one of my personal favorite pieces of music I've ever heard in a giallo film which was also included in the trailer; the beautiful but drum heavy "Jennifer's Recall" which was just used on the "Sound Selections" mix tape by The Cowboys From Sweden. A steady breakbeat paired with a dark and groovy bass line, that sits on top of a sea of minor key string harmonies that flow in and out of each other effortlessly in an almost non rhythmic sort of way. I'm not sure how it came to be, but is is truly a beautiful piece of music. Highly Recommended! 320 Kbps!

PS. Not sure why the CD track listing doesn't have song titles, but anyway, the Mp3s do... Enjoy.

Thanks again for such perfect selection from obscure soundtracks from the past. You're just great and I've been learning with your blog to appreciate the world of "silver age ost".

I'd like to point out the difficult of finding Bruno Nicolai's stuff on web. I think I've recently commented a post in which I ask if you have knowledge about Nicolai's Eugene de Sade ost. None of them I found on web is complete.

Good work and long live to Nature Film.
