LP version. 180 gram vinyl. L'Ultimo Squalo (The Great White) is a 1981 movie directed by Enzo G. Castellari, an Italian reply to the horror genre dedicated to shark movies, a trend that started a few years before with Spielberg's Jaws (1975). In this movie, there is an enormous white shark disrupting the summer of a coastal city in Georgia, in a crescendo of tension and horror that will end in a terrible 1-on-1 between the monster and Peter Benton (James Franciscus), protagonist of the movie and unwitting shark hunter. The music, composed by the de Angelis brothers, Guido and Maurizio, contributes to the obsessive and thrilling moments in which the shark appears, dramatic and melodic when the story becomes more emotional. The wonderful score is also connoted by music by the two composers sung by the vocalist Ywonne Wilkins, plus a cue taken from the OST Uno Sceriffo Extraterrestre Poco Extra Molto Terrestre that provides great variety to the listening experience. Aside from being released here for the first time in any format, the score of L'Ultimo Squalo marks the beginning of a tighter collaboration between Beat Records and Cabum. The two historical labels will give life to a series of releases dedicated to wonderful music produced through the iconic de Angelis bros' label, a series that will offer a righteous tribute to these wonderful scores, much loved and long-awaited, popular staples of the two composer's live concerts. Mastering by Enrico de Gemini.
