Customer Review

on 27 March 2010
There have been a number of Edda Dell'Orso compilations released over the past few years ('Voice', 'Al Cinema con Edda Dell'orso' & 'Dream Within a Dream') and this one is the very best. On 35 tracks spread over two discs, Dell'Orso 'sings' like only she can. Possessed of an otherworldly voice, Dell'Orso does not sing in a traditional style - her voice is almost used as an instrument as she delivers haunting, wordless vocals in a style somewhere between operatic and orgasmic. She added so much to Morricone's 1960's and 1970's work. There are many, many highlights here, particularly Metti Una Sera A Cena, Veruschka and Le Foto Proibite di Una Signora Per Bene.

An extraordinary talent and although primarily regarded as the Maestro's muse, Dell'Orso was the voice of choice for a whole host of Italian soundtrack composers during the late 1960s and early 1970s, including Piero Umiliani, Bruno Nicolai and Stelvio Cipriani. Any decent Italian soundtrack of the era, of which there were many, always featured Dell'Orso and this compilation showcases why.
