Quartet Records is proud to announce its new release…

Music Composed and Conducted by Riz Ortolani
Original Songs Performed by Amanda Lear
Limited edition of 500 units

Premiere CD release of long-awaited giallo score composed by Riz Ortolani!

La ragazza dal pigiama giallo (aka The Pyjama Girl Case) is a somewhat forgotten Spanish-Italian giallo directed by Flavio Mogherini, starring Dalila Di Lazzaro, Ray Milland, Mel Ferrer, Antonio Ferrandis and Fernando Fernán-Gómez. The story is based on an actual crime that happened in Australia: a young girl was found killed on the beach with her face completely disfigured, dressed only in yellow pajamas. This unsolved case became an obsession for Mogherini and when he decided to make the picture one of his demands was that filming had to take place entirely in Australia—something unprecedented in the Italian genre. The 2006 DVD edition of the film, released by the well-known American label Blue Underground, has not only brought the film back, but it has also given it a certain cult-movie halo.

The music composed by Riz Ortolani (Mondo Cane, War Goddess, The Statua, L’Etrusco Uccide Ancora, Fratello Solle Sorella Luna) moves between two different styles: the composer’s characteristic suspense-film sound (as in his superb score for Non si sevizia un paperino)—including a wonderful love theme with the harmonica of Franco Di Gemini—and the cool disco sound of the seventies (with two original songs co-composed and performed by Amanda Lear).

Mastered by Claudio Fuiano, the CD contains the original previously released Cinevox LP program plus five bonus tracks. The package includes an 8-page booklet containing stills from the film, accompanied by an essay from Óscar Salas, who discusses the movie, the composer and the score.

This title are on pre-order now. We expect to receive the CD at the end of this week.

A definite order for me, at 500 units I suspect it won't be around for very long. Well done Quartet!
