Today’s press release with details:

Morricone Segreto will be released in a special Collector’s Edition on December 4th.

The box will include

  • The double LP in an exclusive transparent yellow printing;

  • An alternate cover portraying the Maestro within the walls of his villa in Mentana, while he devotes himself to his greatest passions: music, obviously - and chess;

  • A special one-sided 7" single including an extraordinary sound document of the Maestro Morricone and his musicians in studio during their recording sessions, preparing themselves, talking and giggling between takes. A little behind the scenes extract from the original reels of the soundtracks included in the Morricone Segreto preserved for decades into the CAM Sugar archives;

  • A 60x90 cm poster with a halftone screen photography of the Maestro and, on the back, a comprehensive in-depth focus on every track included on the album, with stories and anecdotes about the soundtracks and films.

I’m looking forward to Tornatore’s documentary about Morricone, would love to see that. It’s apparently scheduled to be released next year.

Excellent review - has convinced me I need to read this. Sounds more interesting and valuable than a biography, with its focus on the art more than the life.
