Armando Trovaioli - Paolo Il Caldo (1973)

I'm back from a much needed vacation with Armando Trovaioli's score for "The Sensuous Sicilian" starring Giancarlo Giannini. For the most part it's a nice, romantic score (featuring the lovely Edda Dell'Orso) with a little quirkiness thrown in via the two versions of the song "Flip Top". Enjoy!

01. Infanzia di Paolo (02:31)
02. Incontro a... (01:48)
03. Dov'e Giovanna? (02:27)
04. Flip Top (03:12)
05. Primo Amore (02:02)
06. Confessione e Addio (05:45)
07. Immagini (03:15)
08. Ricordo di Lilia (03:52)
09. Amore Impossibile (04:32)
10. Malinconia di Paolo (02:01)
11. Una Lettera di Addio (05:35)
12. Flip Top (03:11)

Nice one Brian! I love Trovajoli and I haven't got this one, so thanks very much!

Thanks for this - there isn't enough of Trovajoli's stuff out there compared to Morricone, Umiliani, Piccioni etc, though he's arguably just as important as the founding father of the Italian soundtrack.

Hello again Braniac. I wanted to invite you and your readers to my new social network that I have created. It's similar in appearance to myspace, but it intended to serve as a hangout for artists and music lovers. I have also included a forum category for music bloggers such as yourself to promote their blogs and share updates. If you are interested, here is the url:

I instantly recognized that smirk - the lipsmacking sleezbag eyeing that lovely piece of work... Giancarlo Giannini is staring in one of my fave films Pasqualino Settebelezze by Lina Wertmüller.
That AND Trovaioli - not to be missed for sure.

Thanks for this and all the other shares !
