Dario Argentos opera prima Luccello dalle piume di cristallo was premiered in 1970 and marked an historical and revolutionary debut, being a truly original and innovative thriller. The stylistic choices of Argento mark a clear step forward from the thrillers of that era and even the soundtrack was something utterly special. Argento assigned the score to Ennio Morricone, composer of the soundtracks for Comandamenti per un gangster, Cera una volta il west, Metti, una sera a cena Un esercito di 5 uomini and La stagione dei sensi, which Argento had already written the screenplay of. For this movie the maestro adopted a particular style that draws heavily on contemporary music and on the studies of his Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza. With Luccello dalle piume di cristallo Morricone develops this approach and defines a 'formula': he alternates traditional songs, built around an easy and immediate melody used as a leitmotiv, with avant-garde and abstract tracks that amplify the state of uneasiness and fear of the viewers of tension and violence sequences. Cinevox released this soundtrack on an LP with 10 tracks in the spring of 1971 when Il gatto a nove code was already a big hit in the Italian cinemas. The record was originally issued in mono, with different tracks from the Stereo US version. This is the first vinyl reissue featuring the original score in Stereo, enclosed in new artwork.
