La serie C.A.M. AMG

Italian Version

A very short-lived series issued by the C.A.M.-label in the middle of the 60ies was the so-called "AMG-series" (obviously C.A.M. experimented with various series´ those days: CDR., Campi, AMG). Not yet presented on this site completely, it might consist of only six recordings (any info welcomed), which all share the usual C.A.M.-production values: top pressing qulity, nicely (sometimes framed) cover artwork on softer cardboard, not yet laminated, with thwo of them featuring fold-out covers: "Falstaff", a highly inventive Orson Wells-pet project based on Shakespeares same-name play (score also available on a British Fontana-release, which has no F/O-cover), and "Top crack" (probably crime-thriller), which has even muliple inside pages!

Musically the series contains a mixture of the mid-60ies musical styles used by the composers represented in these grooves: "Notti di terrore" by John SCOTT is also available on a more easy-to-find Roulette pressing (also containing more tracks since not coupled with another score) and contains a highly enjoyable jazz-score supplementing this Sherlock Holmes-movie, "Repulsione" by Chico HAMILTON is the only available representation of four tracks from this Roman POLANSKI/Catherine DENEUVE-movie (also very jazzy!), "Signore & Signori" by Carlo Rustichelli is the non-F/O-"reissue", actually manufactured the same year as its original Campi-triple-F/O-release (!), and a quite a jazzy score, too, which is also all the way true for the second entry of the "Seven golden men" by Armando Trovajoli on AMG 4, whereas my personal favourite from this series, "Top crack", is a more beaty item by the always-great Gianni MARCHETTI, evoking some ideas on how a pot-filled petty-crime-scene atmosphere of the mid-60ies might have felt and smelled (smile). Musically speaking, Angelo Francesco LAVAGNINOs score, which is certainly this series´ musically most demanding, does actually not very much fit into this series, but is a great example of classical Italian movie-composition in the style of Italian 50ies movie-scoring. All items are in heavy demand and top collectibles, which can only be recommended without any hesitation to lovers of the various styles presented.

Oh yes, please drop me a line, in case you have a copy of SETTE UOMINI D´ORO on CAM AMG 5 and RUGANTINO on CAM AMG 7 ...! Thanks!

Again, enjoy and let the covers attract your immagination! And if you have any questions, that have been left unanswered (and I am sure there are some ...), please do not hesitate to drop me a line e-mail! I answer all questions as fast as possible, plan to collect them and want to put them into a FAQ-section (which is planned for 2003!). The same goes of course, if you have any info or items for sale or trade available!!
