“Secret Reunion”: Dainty, Angelic

How interesting (though not surprising) to learn that the vocalist on the previous track by Ennio Morricone is the same one featured here on this tinkly and mesmerizing instrumental – “Secret Reunion (Lucky Theme)” – from Bruno Nicolai‘s soundtrack for an Italian spy thriller in the James Bond style, Agente Speciale:

“Secret Reunion (Lucky Theme)”     1967     Bruno Nicolai

These soprano vocals, described by Richie Unterberger as “dainty, angelic easy listening,” belong to Edda Dell’Orso and can be found on Chris Barrus‘s revolutionary 166-song mix of sounds from 1967.
