Beat Records release on CD the brilliant music by Ennio Morricone for La vita, a volte, è molto dura, vero Provvidenza? directed in 1972 by Giulio Petroni and by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai for Ci risiamo, vero Provvidenza? directed in 1973 by Alberto De Martino, two comic westerns starring the legendary Tomas Milian. For Provvidenza's first adventure, Ennio Morricone composed a cheerful and brilliant score in which a recurring piece of religious/folk flavor emerges for female choir, with pop rhythms and tubular bells. A truly varied OST with suspense music, saloon pieces for piano, a romantic orchestral love theme, Indian music with sitar and a piece that winks at Rossini's Figaro. For the sequel, the varied soundtrack bears the signature of both Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai (who'd previously worked with director De Martino on the films Dalle Ardenne all'inferno, OK Connery, Roma come Chicago, and L'anticristo. The prestigious duo composed a comic main theme with pop rhythms and choir alternating with square dance music, the delicate love theme "Bocca a bocca", saloon pieces, baroque pop music, Asian atmospheres and a great orchestral Can-Can. This long-running CD, derived from the stereo masters of the original sessions, will transport the listener to the torrid lands of the West in the company of Provvidenza, the funny, kind-hearted character who mocks Charlot with pleasant background music by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai. Includes 12-page booklet.
