The third release in the Morricone Themes Collection

Includes 4-page insert w/ liner notes by Claudio Fuiano

Rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time!

Music On Vinyl proudly presents Ennio Morricone Themes, a wonderful and unique collection of the greatest music "The Maestro" composed for movies throughout the past 70 years, divided into five different Themes. Each Theme centers on a different movie genre, together they allow the listener to rediscover the unmatched genius of the greatest movie composer of all time. The spines of the five titles form one image together.

Lounge is the third in a series of five double vinyl releases that bring together some of Ennio Morricone's greatest soundtrack music. This collection was announced before Ennio Morricone passed away on July 6, 2020.

The term "Lounge Music" is not one that Ennio Morricone would have heard at the time he was composing these pieces for the movies that they enhanced, but it is one has been retrospectively applied to a certain type of music, and it is a style that Morricone has contributed a great deal toward.

Lounge refers to a type of easy listening music that began to be popular in the 1950s and developed right through the 1960s and into the 1970s. This was sophisticated music for an adult audience. Lounge music combined its American influences with music that was popular outside the USA such as Latin, Hawaiian, Polynesian, French, and many others. This was an era that was inspired by new inventions. Lounge mimicked the space-age sound effects of the time and the advent of stereophonic technology allowed spatial audio techniques to be used to full effect.

This collection is not about a specific genre of music for film, it is a celebration of Lounge style pieces by Morricone that are capable of evoking in the listener thoughts of easy living, sophistication, romantic moods, and the excitement of a 1950s cocktail lounge or a 1960s nightclub. Limited edition of 3,000 numbered copies on solid orange vinyl.

Starting 70 years ago as an arranger for the piece Mamma Bianca, Ennio Morricone is the emperor of scores and soundtracks. Morricone has always been a huge influence for the likes of Hans Zimmer, Danger Mouse, Muse, Metallica and many more musicians. He was one of the most successful composers of all-time, selling more than 70 million records and winning dozens of awards.
