Product Notes

Limited vinyl LP pressing of this great Italian 'poliziottesco' classic, originally released in '75. This edition, curated by AMS Records, contains a second take of the song "La fine di Cobb" as a bonus track. Includes extensive liner notes and reproductions of flyers and lobby cards of the film Mark il poliziotto (Blood, Sweat and Fear) is a 1975 movie directed by Stelvio Massi, the first of a successful trilogy featuring Franco Gasparri as main character in the role of drug squad commissioner Mark; the actor had been borrowed from the world of photonovels, typical Italian photographic stories published on several magazines that saw him as protagonist for several years. The film is one of the most successful examples of the 'Italo-crime' genre under many points of view: the plot, the script, the breathtaking chases and shootouts and, last but not least, the soundtrack. The music for Mark il poliziotto was written by Stelvio Cipriani, who had already worked with Massi the previous year for Squadra volante (Emergency squad). An extremely prolific composer, he can undoubtedly be placed next to Micalizzi, Bacalov and Morricone for the quantity and especially the quality and importance of his works. More than many others, this soundtrack is pervaded, in it's most energetic tracks, by a strong funky groove that recalls the typical sound of the US blaxploitation phenomenon; the classical/orchestral component isn't present here, in favor of a mix of rock music, wind instruments and keyboards like Hammond and Harpsichord. Everything is, as usual, perfectly balanced with more smooth and reflective tracks such as "Tenerezza", "Lei e la madre", "Nella stanza di lei" and "Porte chiuse".
