|GOBLIN SQUADRO ANTIGANGSTERS Limited Coloured 180gram Vinyl LP
"Squadra Antigangsters" (The Gang that Sold America) is one of over ten films produced in the '70s and '80s in which the actor Tomas Milian plays the role of Police Marshal / Inspector Nico Giraldi, probably the most famous character from the Italian detective films of that period, These were Giallo** movies with a strong comedy component.
The film is set in the USA, and the soundtrack sounds very American, starting from the first two songs, interpreted by the warm voice of Asha Puthli, an Indian singer who is also an actress in this movie; "The Whip" and "The Sound of Money" seem to belong to one of the many Stax productions from those years, only that they're played by... Goblin! The Roman band, whose line-up consisted of Claudio Simonetti (keyboards), Agostino Marangolo (drums), Fabio Pignatelli (bass) and Carlo Pennisi (guitar). Goblin were very prolific in these years and wrote and produced a number of high-quality film soundtrack releases. In fact, the film soundtrack goes through various genres - disco music, country, funky, soul, samba ...with concessions to some typical 'Goblin' progressive rock moments.
