‣17/12/2019 Bob Hendrikx Notes on Miranda Martino: LADY LUNA (1961) (Part 1)
The one-time Morricone credit for orchestrating "Lady Luna" seems to be an error.

The back sleeve of the 1961 vinyl single does credit Morricone for orchestrating both songs, but on the record itself Morricone is only credited for the B-side song (Qualcuna mi ama).
The orchestrator of the A-side song (Lady Luna) is not identified ("con accomp. orchestrale").

1961 EP: Morricone credit for "Qualcuno mi ama" and "Mare di dicembre", not for "Non mi dire chi sei" and "Lady Luna".
1961 LP: Morricone credit for "Patatina" and "Mare di dicembre", not for "Non mi dire chi sei" and "Lady Luna".
