Four Flies On Grey Velvet

Today I present you with the Dario Argento film FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (1971) with music by Ennio Morricone. This was Argento's third film and makes up what is called THE ANIMAL TRILOGY which includes BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE (score already posted) and then THE CAT O'NINE TAILS (score coming soon to this blog) and finally this movie.

This score has been released numerous times but the version I present here is from the 2007 release by Cinevox (catalog code CD MDF 619) which is the longest version. Please note that the original Italian release title for this movie is "4 MOSCHE DI VELLUTO GRIGIO".

Please note that 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 are large TIFF images of the CD artwork along with smaller JPG images (such as the cover presented above) plus I embedded the smaller JPG image into each track so that you get a nice thumbnail image on your software/hardware player.

Here is the track listing courtesy of the Soundtrack Collector website:
