I could be wrong but I absolutely agree with Peter. I don't think its a Morricone piece at all.
Firstly I base my conclusion on the fact that there are some montrous Morricone afficionados on this forum with collections you would not believe - If they cannot identify it, that alone tells you it is very unlikely to be Morricone, however rare.
It smells more like a Morricone-copy. Of which, there are hundreds from mid-sixties onwards. There was a hellavu lot of library music written by unknowns or less-known composers throughout 60s and 70s - could easily be something like that.
It starts as though it might be by the Maestro - but then the melody - as Peter says - meanders and runs out of steam and goes down a blind alley that the composer cannot get out of - Ennio themes don't do that. He treats the end and middle as important as the beginning and I cant think of single occasion in anything I've heard where a Morricone piece is awkward, rushed or runs out of steam. This does.
I was going to suggest it might be someone like Cipriani but I think that's an insult to Cipriani too. Maybe one of the less well-known Italian composers. It sounds like it comes from an LP, because I think you can hear the needle hum.
Just my opinion.
Yes, exactly, it could be some of Library music... of course...
And also it could be Franck Pourcel, the style is so similar.
No, i don't think it's from Cipriani... i know a lot of his music very well and i have never heard it in any of his OST or library.
