♫♪  Stelvio Cipriani - Concorde Affaire ‘79 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Snippets

For each of us, there is that one film score or soundtrack that constantly eludes physical ownership. (For me, it’s Lowball, possibly Schoolly D’s first work as a film score composer.) Maybe it was only released overseas; maybe it wasn’t released at all. Stelvio Cipriani’s soundtrack to Ruggero Deodato’s Concorde Affaire ‘79 falls into the first of those two categories. Though easily obtained on mp3 since 2011, the LP was only released in Japan in 1979 and in Italy earlier this year, meaning unless you were willing to shell out $40 to $100, your desire to hold in your hands an artifact of “propulsive motorik disco funk, epic soaring strings, smooth tropical jazz, ominous atmospheric industrial synthscapes and more” would have to remain unfulfilled.

But no longer! Thanks to all-new all-American record label VOMBIS, the Concorde Affaire ‘79 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by famed Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani will soon be available stateside for just $23 plus a reasonable shipping cost. Pre-orders are being taken now via VOMBIS’ Big Cartel shop, and the gorgeously packaged “First ever COMPLETE release with all 30 tracks including ALL tracks from the original Japanese LP plus a 2nd LP with 15 bonus tracks” ships out October 15.

That is of course assuming that the shipment isn’t sabotaged, forcing it to crash in the ocean, leaving only one survivor, who’s rescued by two fishermen, who are then killed off by corporate agents because they witnessed the crash… You get the idea. Preview the soundtrack below and allow these snippets to build your anticipation like a vintage trailer.
