Many thanks for this Universal link, Stefan! I'm listening to those tracks right now and this is better than so much Italian stuff that gets released on CD - what a pity...

This could be a great album with the additional tracks discovered by Stefan.

I agree it all sounds good to me.

On the RCA SP library LPs even more tracks from both films can be found which are neither on the GDM download nor on the BPM Score Music Series CDs/Universal Production Music website.
These are the ones:

- RCA SP 10004 LP: "Canto proteso" by Usuelli (2:44) = from PATRIARCHI
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Drammatici-E-Musiche-Di-Tensione-Psicologica-1/release/12615475

- RCA SP 10006 LP: "Preludio eroico" by Usuelli (1.44) = from GIACOBBE
https://www.cdandlp.com/morricone-nicolai-usuelli-fusco/drammatici-e-musiche-di-tensione-psicologica-3/33t/r114975059/

- RCA SP 10016 LP:
"Pantomima intima" by Marinuzzi (2:10) = from GIACOBBE

"Elegia per un adolescente" by Marinuzzi (2:24) = from GIACOBBE
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Musiche-Di-Genere-E-Di-Maniera-2/release/7228024

- RCA SP 10025 LP: "Notturno claustrale" by Marinuzzi (2:58) = from GIACOBBE
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Romantici-3/release/6500262

So if you add all these tracks you would get an album of at least about 60 minutes.

Unfortunately these library tracks can be difficult to purchase in CD quality. Once I've tried to order the score "Nero Wolfe" from Romolo Grano, available on a library website. While you can stream the low quality version (possibly MP3), once I made the effort to register to the website and tried to make an order, simply to upgrade to CD quality versions, but the cost was literally a thousand pounds! Crazy!

All the BPM Score Music Series tracks which you can listen to on the Universal Production Music website had at first been released on physical CDs about 20 years ago in the years 2000 or 2001. So all those tracks exist of course also in CD quality.
All together these were 27 CDs of which I have a few myself. So all the PATRIARCHI/GIACOBBE tracks which you can listen to now on the Universal website already existed in CD quality many years ago.
Here for example the BPM 3014 CD with the title "War" which is quite easy to purchase at Discogs even now and which contains three of the Marinuzzi/Usuelli tracks:
https://www.discogs.com/de/Various-War/release/14432499

I don´t think that the various RCA SP library LPs like the "Drammatici e musiche di tensione psicololgica" series will ever be reissued on CD and you probably also won´t find them online on library websites. The question is even whether all the tracks on these LPs have been preserved till today - see my above list of PATRIARCHI/GIACOBBE tracks which are available ONLY on those LPs.

Regarding the Usuelli-Marinuzzi, jr. scores from "I patriarchi" and "Giacobbe l'uomo che lottò con Dio" ("The Patriarchs" / "James, The Man Who Fought With God"), I've assembles a comprehensive track list of the material that has been made available so far, using tracks from those 1970s LPs, the GDM album (download only), and those tracks put out by Universal Music Production (first on various CD compilations, then later for streaming and downloading).

What hasn't been said above is the fact, that the music of all those eleven Universal tracks are in true and beautiful stereophonic sound. But the LP tracks and the GDM album are in mono.

Once again, the following list was made possible thanks to Stefan's large knowledge about these films and scores. He also made up the track titles - I'm reusing them. The titles in brackets are either from the LPs, GDM or Universal. All in all, you would get a CD filled to the max of roughly 80 minutes including doubling some material that exists in mono as well as in stereo.

Listen to the stereo tracks here:

The hear "Phyrric Victory – Reprise" you need to click on the track title "Phyrric Victory", then you see four different versions, the longer one with chourus which is "Phyrric Victory" followed by "Phyrric Victory – Reprise" which is an instrumental. The other two versions are not important and superfluous as these tracks are merely edits of the first two versions made by Universal Music Production.
