Thought that Rustichelli's Un minuto per pregare, un'istante per morire had sold out ages ago but maybe they did a repressing of that one the expanded score was very enjoyable. It would be interesting to see the total number of copy's that they made for each of their cds purely out of interest to have an idea of roughly how many fans of these great Italian composers are actually out there.
Think you are right ToneRow that is more than likely the way things are there has to be more than 500 fans of Italian composers that are actively purchasing a number of these cds each year. You would think the fan base would be getting slighter larger each year and maybe it has but due to the recession and the flood of the market with so many releases.
More collectors but just fewer releases each who knows
Some titles look fairly certain to have only had one pressing (500) Morricone's Il Prigioniero for a score that never seems to get a mention anywhere and with no samples to be found on YouTube and few copies to be found on the secondary marketplace .
Years ago Digit mentioned about re pressing a number of titles that were good sellers one in particular was Micalizzi’s Lo Chiamavano Trinita
The more copy’s they make the better I say especially if the interest is there for fans that would still like to be able to buy a copy when they were able too.
Screen Archives often has samples for the Digitmovies releases. Looks like they don't for the Gizzi double header though. Here's my favorite theme from the set. It's pretty good example of the mood of both scores:
And here's a great track from the Frankenstein score:
