The maestro Morricone's Mediterranean sounds for the cult 1977 movie Il Prefetto di Ferro -- directed by Pasquale Squitieri and starring the Italian cinema legend Giuliano Gemma -- are sometimes warm, sometimes hard and sharp. With this score we can easily understand how much the Italian composer know about Sicilian folk music; the wonderful ballad "La Ballata del Prefetto Mori," with it's sad lyrics written by Ignazio Buttitta, is magisterially interpreted by one of the most important voices of Sicilian folk music: the legendary Rosa Balistreri. Deluxe reissue on LP, remastered with audiophile quality.
