"Mark il poliziotto" (Blood, Sweat and Fear) is a 1975 movie directed byStelvio Massi, the first of a successful trilogy featuring Franco Gasparri asmain character in the role of drug squad commissioner Mark; the actor hadbeen borrowed from the world of photonovels, typical Italian photographicstories published on several magazines that saw him as protagonist forseveral years. The film is one of the most successful examples of the'Italo-crime' genre under many points of view: the plot, the script, thebreathtaking chases and shootouts and, last but not least, the soundtrack.The music for "Mark il poliziotto" was written by Stelvio Cipriani, who hadalready worked with Massi the previous year for "Squadra volante"(Emergency squad). An extremely prolific composer, he can undoubtedly beplaced next to Micalizzi, Bacalov and Morricone for the quantity andespecially the quality and importance of his works.More than many others, this soundtrack is pervaded, in its most energetictracks, by a strong funky groove that recalls the typical sound of the US'blaxploitation' phenomenon; the classical/orchestral component isn't presenthere, in favor of a mix of rock music, wind instruments and keyboards likeHammond and Harpsichord. Everything is, as usual, perfectly balanced withmore smooth and reflective tracks such as "Tenerezza", "Lei e la madre","Nella stanza di lei" and "Porte chiuse".A great Italian 'poliziottesco' classic, originally released in '75 by CinevoxRecord and never reissued on LP to date. This edition, curated by AMSRecords, contains a second take of the song "La fine di Cobb" as a bonustrack, a front cover faithful to the original one and a completely new artworkthat includes extensive liner notes and reproductions of flyers and lobbycards of the film.
