‣28/11/2005 Teleserial.com La Piovra new release of original soundtrack
This year in Russia was released a new CD-version of soundtrack (by Ennio Morricone) from "La Piovra". This is limited edition for collectors and includes some tracks that never used before in official releases. If somebody interested e-mail me to cd@teleserial.com

Hello,
This score probably the one i know about more than anyone else knows...
First of all, let me to tell that i've asked long time ago C.Fuiano about Unreleased parts and he always said me directly that all he mastertapes he had - it's been released on that RAI TRADE 2006 CD.
So, that means that we never see any other inedits from that score.

As you know a lot of tracks are missing!!!!!
Mille Ecchi - 3 more versions (flute etc), La Morale - alternate versions, Canzone Per La Sera, Tentativo, Notturno Per Un citta
All of them has more alternate versions which never been released.

Same for LA PIOVRA 3 tracks: Silenzi Dopo Silenzi and Strana Bambina, few alternate versions are never released

Same for La Piovra 4 and other much tracks. Unfortunately they all are unreleased and lost.

Moreover, in that series a lot of pre-existing source music by MAESTRO and by someone else like those tracks on party scenes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EiOHBLyU6cw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPcGPUeyc9o
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHMjkSCDsQ4
and more ....probably famous at the time.

Also a lot of EM old music i've identified from Veruschka, Gli Intoccabili (Come lei, Senza parole) , Copkiller (Rock music) were used for background scenes/restaurant etc. And probably some others i've never recognized.

In LA PIOVRA-3-4-5-6 we frequently can hear 2 tracks from SACCO E VANZETTI : NEL CARCERE and E DOVER MORIRE!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=404AM3I8wIE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wR-UNdgr2yY

Also many others like Stasera Ti Amo #2, or Classic tracks
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSeg69d3CQ8

In LA PIOVRA 4 a lot of music used from LA PIOVRA-2,3 and new music and also a lot of Alternate versions of Morte di un giusto (2 more unreleased versions), other themes...
Some another source tracks not by EM (Some pop music in Dancing club scenes, parties)
Or that one in scene of Espinoza-Tano house
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ph8PCOYnxZI

In LA PIOVRA 5 and 6 and 7 we have some new

‣08/02/2021 eda-88 Re: Re: Notes on Soundtrack: LA PIOVRA 2 (1985) (Part 2)


In LA PIOVRA 5 and 6 and 7 we have some new music but also some new UNRELEASED cues, suspense music.

Anyway to speak of LA PIOVRA score it's about 2 more CD's which we never can have.
