Murder to the Tune of the Seven Black Notes (1977) aka Sette Note In Nero

Today I present the score to Lucio Fulci's SETTE NOTE IN NERO (1977). This one is known under a variety of other titles including: Murder To The Tune Of Seven Black Notes (my personal favorite), Seven Notes In Black (I believe the literal English translation) and The Psychic (the title used for the original US release). The score is by Bixio-Frizzi-Tempera (three musicians who often worked together and yes the Frizzi in there is Fabio Frizzi). The CD was released by Digitmovies (Catalog Code: CDDM062) in 2006.

This is a giallo by Lucio Fulci which he made prior to his gore drenched zombie years so it might disappoint some fans but it's still a fine film and has some grizzly moments. I'm a big fan (obviously) of Mr. Fulci and I have seen this film but only once and it was a long time ago. I need to see it again. I don't remember liking it as much as his earlier giallo efforts nor does this giallo outshine other, better films in the genre but it is a fine effort nonetheless and a good film. The stand out here is the score though so I hope you enjoy it. It really does help to "make" the film. Oh and if you didn't know already a key track from the score was used by Tarantino in his film KILL BILL VOL. 1

As per my usual methods the CD discs were ripped with EAC to the FLAC format and I have included the EAC made LOG files and CUE Sheet files. I also include M3U PlayList files and some Artwork scans.
