Ciao! Manhattan CINEWAX/LIGHT IN THE ATTIC. CD/DL/LP
Completed in winter 1970/71, when strung-out Warhol model Edie Sedgwick was living in a drained swimming pool, mere months from death, Ciao! Manhattan embodies the rancid demise of the hippy dream. A cocktail of stoned dialogue, Gino Piserchio’s electronic score and melancholy Richie Havens laments, Cinewax’s beautifully packaged soundtrack is similarly certifiable.
