Limited double colored vinyl LP pressing (Disc One transparent orange and Disc Two transparent purple). Housed inside a gatefold sleeve with spot metallic ink. Features multiple bonus alternate takes and tracks. Next to Suspiria, Profondo Rosso has to be the jewel in the Goblin crown. Recorded in 1975, the score finds the band at the height of their creativity and features the incredible lineup of Simonetti, Morante, Pignatelli and Martino. Bass and drums are so tight on this record and provide the foundations for the entire score. Jazz, prog and rock signatures all fight for center stage yet always manage to be precise, clear and perfectly executed. Synths and organs tinkle, wail and moan and more than provide the requisite chills and atmospherics. In addition, the album's prog wig-outs are legendary. It's impossible to overstate the importance of this score, it really set the stage for prog-infused synth scores and has influenced a generation. Light In The Attic is re-issuing the full original soundtrack as it originally appeared in 1975 (and pressed by the same original pressing plant!), the release has an entire disc of alternate tracks and takes on vinyl for the first time ever, pulled from the Cinevox archives and compiled by Fabio Capuzzo! Once again, the whole package is rounded out by absolutely jaw dropping artwork from Randy Ortiz.
