2:45 – 13 – Tema scartato (Marinuzzi)
1:16 – 15 – Ho paura (Marinuzzi)
This release has conflicting information about who composed what.
Tracks 2,4,10,16 are here credited to Marinuzzi. – The 1980 LP credits the tracks (B2, A2, B3, A1) to Morricone.
Tracks 1 and 16 are practically identical, yet track 1 is credited to Morricone and 16 to Marinuzzi. Marinuzzi apparently only provided the electronic intro and outro of track 16.
Tracks A5, B1 and B5 (1980 LP) are missing from this release.

A few themes only,a typical ballroom style theme and a typical ballroom-swing-Big Band - theme, mainly in Stan Kenton style.
Such a bunk was played taht an album was filled with it, "Matchless" and a CD "OK Connery".
The Music was certainly not made for the latter. Whether it was intended, solely intended for Matchless, is possible, very well possible, but it might well be stockmusic as a kind of ballroom-style handwork-experience. Maybe seeing the film can throw more light on the matter.
