Dagored present a reissue of Ennio Morricone's soundtrack for the 1969 film L'Alibi. Written and directed by and starring Vittorio Gassman, Adolfo Celi, and Luciano Lucignani, L'Alibi is a 1969 comedy drama about a trio of friends who reunite after many years apart. The score brims with '60s cool, lots of cheerful tunes, pop arrangements, lounge jazz, and dazzling vocals, all of them featuring that unmistakable Morricone air. It's light music that is highly entertaining, listenable throughout, and full of delightful little touches. 'Canzone Della Libertà'' is an unusual piece performed by the legendary Sergio Endrigo and the I Cantori Moderni Di Alessandro Alessandroni, which includes snippets from famous speeches about freedom; its moody, catchy main theme, with an unusual instrumentation and percussive accompaniment style, make a great combination. This marks the first time the complete score has appeared on vinyl.
