One of several Italian Emmanuelle rip-offs (note the deliberate mispelling of the name) starring Laura Gemser that saw a soundtrack album release. This album has a very exotic feel - lush Italian arrangements and oriental influences. Some very groovy moments - more lounge than funk. Plenty of flute, strings and bossa nova. Listen before you buy - check out the great breathy flute dancer 'Red Hot Wax'. Some tracks have recently been reissued on the Black Emanuelle's Groove compilation.
