Profondo Rosso


PROFONDO ROSSO (aka DEEP RED) is a 1975 giallo film by Italian director Dario Argento. Not only is it one of the best giallo films ever made but it is considered by many to be Dario Argento's best film (although some will say that SUSPIRIA is his true masterpiece). Now the music to PROFONDO ROSSO is generally credited to Goblin as well as Giorgio Gaslini but it seems to be difficult to really determine whom did what exactly. In the end all we can really say with any certainty is that some music was written by both parties but all of it was performed by Goblin.

The CD Rip presented here is the two disc Cinevox CD MDF 613 release from 2006. I originally ripped this using EAC (Exact Audio Copy) to the FLAC audio format then I used foobar2000 to convert the FLAC audio files to MP3 files. I used LAME 3.98.2 with the "-b 320" setting which basically creates a 320kbps CBR MP3 file which is the highest quality MP3 that can be made. I have included the LOG and CUE files from EAC so that you know the ripping was done correctly and of course this facilitates burning back to a standard music CD if you so wish. I also threw in a M3U playlist file.

Also included in the download is a large TIFF image of the cover artwork along with a smaller JPG image (as seen here) plus I embedded the smaller JPG image into each track so that you get a nice thumbnail image on your software/hardware player.
