I saw this in my newspaper this morning:

“Soundtracks from the golden age of Italian cinema will be available to a new generation under a partnership with Universal Music Group and Sugar, Italy’s leading independent label. More than 2,000 historic soundtracks from films including Frederico Fellini’s LA DOLCE VITA and scores from composers such as Ennio Morricone will be distributed via Decca Records.”

Thank you, for me this is most interesting news.
I wonder what titles will be reissued and when this
will come about?

That’s a bit mouth-watering.

We should read newspapers more!

Almost surely this means digital only uploads up existing albums. Not to say this is bad but with such a hefty number, on top of being on a major label, I'm going to guess there shouldn't be any expectancy of expansions or (good) remasterings.

The number of "more than 2000 historic soundtracks" refers only to the number of titles in the CAM catalogue owned by Sugar. Probably about 50% of these titles have never been released at all on LP or CD and I can´t imagine Decca Records releasing these - not even digitally.
Here is a longer article about this news, but the intentions of UMG/Decca are still not quite clear:

A few dozen CAM titles may be commercially interesting for a bigger player like UMG/Decca, but what with all the many remaining Italian/French titles for which there is only a small or almost no market at all?

I didn't even know that the founder of Sugar, Ladislao Sugar was a Hungarian! Now I'm proud! smile
