Polish film maker Zygmunt Sulistrowski pioneered the format of shooting low-budget soft porn on exotic locations. After a long list of previous works, in 1973 he directed the French-Brazilian production “Annie, The Virgin of Saint Tropez”, also known as “Magia Erotica”... Although the movie actually lacked magic, it did include every possible archetypical scene of the genre, and this combination of hot action in tropical surroundings, pleasant sights of Saint Tropez and frantic chases needed some proper background music.

Brazilian arranger and writer Hareton Salvanini was commissioned to deliver this soundtrack and what a wonderful job he did! No wonder he is considered by many a lesser known Arthur Verocai. But instead of multiple layers of refined strings and delicate orchestral sounds, Salvanini creates a record full of groovy guitars and percussions that could rival with the best of KPM or Chappell library LPs. ‘Copacabana Rock’ kicks off with some psychedelic vibes and then evolves into a dancefloor bomb, then ‘Saint Tropez’ is a rhythmic flute & electric piano laden track with wah-wah guitars a plenty! There is still room for some heavy tropical drumming on ‘Perseguiçao’ and ‘Seios’. In need of some soft bossa with dabadaba vocals? Just check ‘Espairecendo’, one of the most exquisite cuts on the album that sounds as if Sergio Mendes & Brasil ‘66 had been produced by Verocai. And the jazzier and most experimental passages of the soundtrack belong to the wonderful ‘Sao Paulo’.

As well as its original Brazilian version (Fermata, 1974), the soundtrack was also released in Italy in small quantities shortly after. Both pressings have become collector’s items over the years, just like every other Salvanini recording: his only own album called “S.P. 73”, the mega rare EP he made for one of his brother’s theatre productions or the obscure soundtrack to the film “Xavana, Uma Ilha do Amor”.
