Description: Gli Angeli del 2000 is a 1969 flick directed by Honil Ranieri that has all the drug, sex and counter culture ingredients of the era but which had very small distribution when first released – it was probably better distributed its photonovel version rather than the film itself! Bits of its soundtrack, though, have surfaced on different compilations in the past years, especially the famous ‘Psyche Rock’ rip-off title track .
The music is amazing. Top class Italian sounds for psych beat club dancers, cocktail easy goers and experimental groovers featuring the fabulous vocal talents of Edda dell’Orso-famous for her work in Alessandro Alessandroni’s Cantori Moderni or in many Morricone soundtracks (‘Meti una sera a cena’ or ‘C’era una volta il west’, for instance!)- and also featuring violinist, pianist, singer Nora Orlandi-herself also a composer of many soundtracks from the sixties and the seventies, here providing the backing vocals with her own famous I 2+2 di Nora Orlandi group.
