‘La Bambola’ and the title suites in particular are vintage Morricone, perplexingly beautiful and perfectly matched to the imagery of Veruschka von Lehndorff, zeitgeist chameleon and super-model extraordinaire, who takes a surreal journey through the Italian country side.

Her many whacked out head trips are met by subconscious female vocals, piano-led moments, atonal passages and spiralling melancholia. Though Morricone is best known for his work on Spaghetti Westerns, this is without doubt one of his finest pieces.

Daroged reissued Veruschka in 2014 with the awe-inspiring original artwork (see below). The 2016 edition arrives on pink and white vinyl as a deluxe gatefold on 2 November. Find the tracklist below.
