"Digitmovies, in collaboration with Gruppo Sugar, presents the Volume XXVII of the series dedicated to the Italian Peplum by releasing, for the very first time on CD, the complete OST by Francesco De Masi for the movie “Maciste il Gladiatore Più Forte del Mondo" (CDDM236). It comes from the mono master tapes of the original session and every note recorded at that time has been included here with a total time of 66:11."



"Lo Chiamavano Trinità" ("They Call Me Trinity" - DPDM009), one of the milestones of the Italian western soundtracks comes back on the market on a special Digipack edition with a totally improved sound from the 1970 stereo tapes and featuring 14 tracks not included in the original LP version Carosello ORL 8347, one of the greatest successes of the screen with the famous couple Terence Hill and Bud Spencer with a cool Orchestral /Pop score by Franco Micalizzi. Listening to the original Session tapes we found 9 alternate takes of the album tracks plus 3 tracks from the reject score never used in the final cut of the movie featuring an exciting epic orchestral theme for Trinity totally different than the original famous version."



"The journey into the spaghetti westerns world continues, publishing, for the first time on CD the complete OST by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis for the movie “… Continuavano a Chiamarlo Trinità” (“Trinity is Still My Name” - DPDM010). For this CD we found and used the stereo master tapes of the original session that allowed us to publish every recorded note of this beautiful OST (52:26). This soundtrack was the first by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis for a film with Terence Hill and Bud Spencer, with the editing created for the CD presents nearly faithfully the film sequence (Tr. 1-18), in the second part (Tr. 19-25) the not synchronized versions were included in the movie versions."

Lo Chiamavano Trinita appears to be pretty much a straight re-issue (but in Digipak format) of the earlier Digitmovies release in 2004.

I've just listened again to my copy and it sounds absolutely fine; I can see no reason to get the new one. In fact, going by the track listing on their website, the new version has 3 tracks less than the 2004 version (the three 'lounge' cues).

Good for those that don't already have the score, but (as far as I can tell) pointless for Micalizzi fans who already have it.

I'm tempted by Lo Chamavano Trinita. I have a CD on the Curci label (a two-fer with Il Pistolero Dell'Ave Maria). Only 13 tracks, are the extra tracks worth it?

I think so, although the extra tracks are mainly 'alternates' and you do get the occasional feeling of repetition, as is sometimes the case with Italian score releases. I like Micalizzi - very underrated composer.

Wow that was quick, thanks. I also like Micalizzi (but not the funky stuff), & the two-fer CD, Sacramento/I Due Volti Della Paura is a big favorite.

Mine as well! One of my most played Italian western CDs. I like most of the other 1970's Micalizzi too. Have you heard his other western ...e alla fine lo chiamarono Jerusalem l'implacabile?

Yep I bought that, but I don't think I'd recommend it. It has one good theme that comes up in various arrangements on every other track. The rest of it is very unmemorable. I am tempted by the other Trinita soundtrack, esp. as it a first time on CD. I don't have any De Angelis soundtracks.

Great batch I already own Micalizzi's Lo Chiamavano Trinita' which is a fantastic score will look forward to hearing the other two titles.
