Gruppo Editoriale Vulcania
« on: October 13, 2018, 02:59:14 PM »
Don't know exactly where to put this topic, but..
Does anybody of you guys, have some infos about this release? It intrigue me very much, both, for the composers and for it's rarity.
It's a sampler apparently, and the label says "omaggio alle orchestre, vietata la vendita", which leaves me some more doubt.
"omaggio" in italian could mean "gift" or "tribute", so te translation could be "gift/tribute to orchestras, sale prohibited".
Was it a tribute to orchestras, or a release intended for orchestras use only?
And what about the label itself?

Interesting find!

Not sure what "Omaggio alle orchestre" is intended to mean literally, but I've seen the same phrasing on some other Italian 7" samplers, ex.: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Promozionale-Editoriale-N-3/release/9093628
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Omaggio-Alle-Orchestre/release/8479823
- together with "vietata la vendita'", I'd assume it simply means "Promotional sampler, not for resale".


Not a whole lot of info here, but here's what I could find:
The publisher was based at Via Guala 13, 15057 Tortona (Piemonte), and active as a publisher of sheet music from the early 50's onwards, mostly focused on dance music and canzoni. The publisher seems to have gone defunct sometime in the early 70's. I don't think it was active much as a label, the only I could find was this release:
https://www.discogs.com/I-Continentals-Vulcania-46/release/7708577

The composers on this 7" are Glauco Masetti, Antonio Dammicco, "Maspes" (Antonio Dammicco), Aldo Zara, Elio(?) Pasino, "Forrand" (Gianfranco Bottino), Italo Salizzato and Giancarlo(?) Agnello - some of whom have done library work. Though I don't think this is necessarily intended as library music. I'm guessing this 7" sampler was to promote sales of sheet music more than anything.

If this is like the Italian 7" samplers I have bought, it's probably not that interesting either, unfortunately. The ones I have contain only short segments of the songs together with some promotional speak, no full songs.

Well, thanks for the infos!
As I thought, and as you say, it was probably something intended for some kind of promotion.
Would be nice to see if these tracks are full length or not..
