La Dolce Vita (Original Soundtrack)

(CD - CAM / Import #3095)

Review by

This intriguing soundtrack was actually a popular LP in its own right throughout the '60s, and we're lucky to have the CAM series of Rota film scores (though all of them could use a sonic upgrade). LA DOLCE VITA is the score that propelled Rota to the first rank of film composers. The album is heavily composed of medleys--pop songs and Euro standards (two by Perez Prado)--juxtaposed against Rota's original themes, all of which evoke the bittersweet and, at times, eerie quality of Fellini's classic film.
