Release Notes
  • Extensive and exclusive liner notes by Andy Votel, original artwork and rare photos/ephemera.
  • Deluxe 180 Gram Gatefold Limited Edition LP with inner sleeve.

The missing link in the Morricone / Gruppo discography. Their originally unreleased avant / cacophonic score to Elio Petri’s manic Artsploitation masterpiece was the first and last time Morricone and Il Gruppo would co-sign an OST/session. Conducted by Bruno Nicolai with vocalisations by Edda Dell’Orso and drums by Vincenzo Restuccia, A Quiet Place In The Countryis anhistoric (and quite forgotten) recording that sees Il Gruppo in their key gestational phase just prior to recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, RCA Italiana (The Feed-Back) and the magnificent unreleased session, Niente. Featuring Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consananza members Franco Evangelisti, Mario Bertoncini, Egisto Macchi, Ennio Morricone, John Heineman and Walter Branchi and recorded at Forum Studios Roma 1968. Remastered 2014 from the Original Stereo Album Master Tapes (originally prepared by Morricone for a 1968 LP release but for reasons unknown not issued at the time).
