In 2013, thanks to the collaboration with Sugar Group and the Umiliani Estate archives, we launched a new series dedicated to the discovery of the immense talent of this wonderful composer. Through our efforts we were able to retrieve many beautiful soundtracks, some of which we’ve already released: “Intrigo a Los Angeles,” “Jerry Land Cacciatore di Spie,” “Il marchio di Kriminal,” and sound library albums such as “Discomusic” and “Tra scienza e fantascienza.” Many others are just waiting to be published.
With “Agente X1-7 Operazione Oceano” (1966) we return to the Italian Spy genre. Among the many scores composed by Piero Umiliani, it’s surely ranked among the top. It’s a real masterpiece and a particularly inspired moment for the composer, who incorporated all of the sounds typically associated with the genre. For lovers of Euro-spy scores it’s an absolute must, and for everyone else a precious addition to your soundtrack collection.
The CD is packaged in a jewel case with a 12-page booklet, with liner notes and mastering by Claudio Fuiano and graphic layout by Alessio Iannuzzi. Limited edition of 500 copies!
