The legendary and lost soundtrack album from Ennio Morricone. "Danger: Diabolik" is the ultimate late 1960s (or is it the 70s) hero/villain film made in Europe. A combination of The Phantom meets James Bond mixed with Fantomas, Diabolik is the ultimate of the ultimate masked heroes, who embraced the sexual revolution with great passion. Actually, he has a true love that is more Eros than keeping a home together. The soundtrack is equal to the film, and the story is that the master tapes were destroyed in a fire. So the soundtrack has never been released officially, only in the shadow world of bootlegs.
The album is great. It does have a classic Morricone song "Deep Down," which I believe is known to all those who love Retro Lounge Culture. The album is a mixture of electronics, sound effects, and sharp bursts of melody that runs through the entire soundtrack. This particular package also has a lot of dialogue, which I suspect that they just recorded everything from a film print or VHS tape. So, entirely listenable, the sound quality is not the best in the world. Still, it's a fantastic album, and important for those like me who collect Morricone.
