SOUND TRACK ''Yes, Giorgio.'' With Luciano Pavarotti. (London Digital PDV - 9001.) - Luciano Pavarotti's big try at becoming a movie star turned into a colossal box office disaster. This album culls the musical moments from that film, and if you like easy listening, or if you enjoyed the movie, then you'll enjoy the album. If you're buying it for the latest Pavarotti style of singing you'll be alarmed, because in the opera arias his voice sounds tired. The orchestral contributions are pure Hollywood; even the opera selections sound canned, and the horrid pastiche featuring Leona Mitchell as Turandot belongs on the shelf right next to Anna Russell opera parodies and Victor Borge. The only difference is, the latter two were tryingm to be funny.
