Wow. Listen to this thing for a second, will you? It’s a monster track from an Italian “musical” and opera/theater production called LA GATTA CENERENTOLA, but it could have easily have fallen off of a Ze Records comp or something that Soul Jazz dug up from New York’s Little Italy postpunk dance clubs in 1980.
Roberto De Simone is the composer’s name. It’s from 1976, is called “Secondo Coro Delle Lavandie”, and it’s on the soundtrack. Thanks to IsItAnArt for turning me onto this one of his amazing 8Tracks mixes.
