The film only exists in legend, touted as "a brilliant italian sex romp, fraught with adventure and hilarity", "Vai! Vai! Vai!" (1974) Directed by Elio Petri, has unfortunately been completely lost. Parts of the soundtrack, however, remain - and if it is any indicator of what the film is like, then it really was a monumental piece of film.
The soundtrack to "Vai! Vai! Vai!" has everything: Happy, sad, sexy, sultry, smooth, sensual, erotic, romantic, sexy, and most importantly, it evokes an era which we lament for having long since passed away; faded into the ether of time.
So give yourself the gift of sweet reverie in the form of a trip to an age long gone, but not forgotten.
Trust me, you deserve it.

Urgency, groove, tradition, anger, it's all there in this wonderful bass sound. The pieces reveal different aspects each time I listen to them. Feedback, overtones, shifting patterns, lyrical moments, make this a very contemporary and explorative album, while tone and phrasing at times reaffirm the power of the instrument's tradition. livkon
