“Magdalene” is a Yugoslav-Italian production directed in 1971 by Jerzy Kawalerowicz, starring Lisa Gastoni, Frank Wolff, Ivo Garrani, Paul Gozlino and Lucia Alberti. The soundtrack by Ennio Morricone is one of the main protagonists of this film, thanks in particular to the presence of the hit “Who” sung Italian by Lisa Gastoni. Morricone wrote a soundtrack that mixes lounge elements, religious, psychedelic and erotic; the incredible performance Edda Dell’Orso and I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni carrying the listener into a world of passion and mystery, love and death, suspended between sacred and profane.
The original release of 1971 is among the rarest ever signed by the Master, and it is now reissued with a new layout and audio remastered from the original stereo analog tapes. It also includes the film’s theme as a bonus track, a song which at the time was published on 45 rpm single.
