Additional Information

Me complace presentarles el bootleg de la banda sonora original de la pelicula "Orgasmo", clasico dirigido por Umberto Lenzi y que cuenta con una maravillosa musica compuesta y arreglada por el maestro Piero Umiliani. Ésta banda sonora, nunca se llegó a editar completa, tan solo fue lanzado un single del sello CAM, con una version del tema principal "Fate Had Planned It So" (aunque no es el mismo que el que suena en la pelicula). Por lo tanto, es la primera vez que podemos escuchar la banda sonora completa, gracias a este bootleg realizado por Javier Di Granti a partir de la misma pelicula, lamentablemente, nosotros no tenemos acceso a los master tapes de la grabacion originales, aunque estamos convencidos de que tarde o temprano, saldran a la luz. Mientras tanto, disfrutemos con este bootleg.

Catherine West (Carrol Baker), una glamourosa viuda estadounidense, llega a Italia sólo semanas después de la muerte de su anciano y rico marido. Con la ayuda de Brian, su abogado, Kathryn se muda a una lujosa mansión, iniciando una tranquila vida hasta que recibe una inesperada visita, que cambiará por completo su vida.

"Orgasmo" es considerada la primera de la trilogia giallo de Umberto Lenzi y, muchos, la consideran su mejor aportacion al genero, con un thriller vibrante, tenso, angustioso, sensual y con un final apoteosico. La banda sonora ayuda en parte a lograr todo esto y es que, consideramos esta banda sonora una de las mejores del maestro Umiliani (que ya es decir) y que no entendemos como no ha sido lanzada al mercado todabia.

El tema principal del film se titula "Fate Had Planned It So" con voz de la inconfundible y brillante Lydia MacDonald es de una belleza sublime y que dota al film de una mezcla de misterio y romanticismo altisimo. La pelicula se basa en esta melodia con multiples variantes: desde la bossa nova, el lounge, el jazz, swing, shakes, misterio... Cabe decir, que tambien hemos incluido la version single, sacada por la CAM, muy rara de encontrar ahora, y que contiene una version algo diferente pero con mejor calidad, del tema principal. De la misma manera, tambien incluimos la cancion "Just Tell Me" interpretado por la banda italiana de soul Wess & The Airedales, con composicion de Umiliani y Fawkles y que tambien se incluyó en la pelicula "Paranoia" que cerraria la trilogia giallo de Lenzi.

Sin mas, espero que disfruteis con estos cortes, y disculpen, si en algunos de ellos encuentran pequeños dialogos o efectos sonoros, como comprenderan, hemos hecho todo lo posible para evitarlos pero hay ocasiones que es imposible eliminarlos puesto que estan encima de la musica. Dicho esto, el resultado es satisfactorio teniendo en cuenta los escasos medios que tenemos y al menos, puede valer para paliar la espera hasta que Beat Records o similar saquen de una vez esta enorme banda sonora.

I am pleased to present the bootleg of the original soundtrack of the movie "Orgasmo", directed by Umberto Lenzi, a true classic giallo with wonderful music composed and arranged by maestro Piero Umiliani. This soundtrack was never full edited, just was released a CAM single, with a alternate version of the main title "Fate Had Planned It So" (although not the same as the one on the film). Therefore, it's the first time we can hear the soundtrack complete, thanks to this bootleg done by Javier Di Granti, extracting the music directly from the same movie. Unfortunately, we have no access to the master tapes of the original recordings, but we are convinced that sooner or later will come to light.

A glamorous American widow, arrives in Italy several weeks after the death of her older, extremely wealthy husband. With the help of Brian, her lawyer, Kathryn moves into a luxurious villa and proceeds to lead a lonely, uneventful existence until one day, a handsome young man named Peter Donovan shows up at the front gate, looking for tools so he can fix his sports car. Kathryn lets him stay the night, and the next thing she knows, she's madly making love to him in the shower. Peter eventually moves in, and is soon joined by a free spirit he introduces as Eva, his sister. Kathryn enjoys their company and partying with them - until she begins to suspect that Peter and Eva aren't what they seem to be.

"Orgasmo" is considered the first of the giallo trilogy from Umberto Lenzi and many, consider his best contribution to the genre, with a vibrant thriller, tense, anxious, sensual and with an apotheosic ending. The soundtrack helps in part to achieve this. In fact, we consider this soundtrack one of the best from Mº Umiliani and we do not understand why this isn't released yet.

The main theme of the film is titled "Fate Planned Had It So" with voice of the unmistakable and brilliant Lydia MacDonald, which gives the film a perfect blend of a mystery and romance. The movie is based on the melody with multiple variants: from bossa nova to lounge, jazz, swing, shakes, mystery... we have also included the single version, obscure released by CAM, which contains a slightly different version of the main title but better quality sounding. Also, we also include the song "Just Tell Me" featuring the Italian soul-based band Wess & The Airedales, with a soul-beat composition from Umiliani and Fawkles which was also included on the film "Paranoia" from 1970.

So, I hope you enjoy these cuts, and pardon me if it sounds some short dialogues or sound effects on some of them, you understand, we have done everything possible to avoid them but sometimes it is impossible to eliminate because they are over the music. That said, the final result is plenty satisfactory considering the scarce resources and we can at least alleviate the wait until some label will release this gem out.
