|Piero Piccioni Il Medico Della Mutua / Il Prof. Dott. Guido Tersilli Limited Gatefold Coloured Vinyl 2LP Set
"Il medico della mutua" and "Il Prof. Dott. Guido Tersilli..." are two Italian cult films, released in 1968 and 1969 respectively; both see Alberto Sordi as the main character, an initially unknown doctor that makes his way in a rigid and almost impenetrable system that is the Italian health service, and eventualy manages to open his own private clinic to experiment on his patients.
The two films, while dealing with the problems and contradictions of a health system that is still 'sick' today, are marked by a bittersweet satire that prevents them from being protest movies. They are accompanied by the music composed and conducted by Piero Piccioni, 'easy listening' jazz consisting of a memorable theme and several short tunes and reprises.
In 1968 only a 7" was released, with two excerpts from the soundtrack of "Il medico della mutua", and only in 1970 was the scores for both films mncluded on a single LP, one for each side, a record that's today worth hundreds of Euros. This reissue by AMS Records, on coloured vinyl, features new artwork, a gatefold cover with an inner collection of posters and postcards, and several bonus tracks not present in the original version.
