CD from Italy
From Digitmovies: "Digitmovies always enjoys travelling along the wide prairies of the Italian Western and it demonstrates this once again by issuing for the very first time on CD complete and in full stereo the delightful OST by Enrico Simonetti (one of the great musicians of Italian television, author of successful scores like "Gamma" and father of Claudio Simonetti, another famous name of international music) for the Spaghetti Western "Kid il monello del West" (aka "Kid, Terror of the West") directed in 1973 by Tony Good (real name Tonino Ricci), and starring as the little cowboy Andrea Balestri (who made his debut in 1972 with the TV series "Le avventure di Pinocchio" directed by Luigi Comencini and who did reach big fame thanks to the role of the puppet character by Collodi). At the time of the movie's release Cinevox Record issued a 45 rpm single (MDF 047) with the two tracks "La banda del west" and "Black Jack". For the realization of this CD we could use all the stereo mastertapes of the original sessions which gave us the chance to release every note recorded for the movie (38:42). This OST is dominated by the main theme "La banda del west" which is the "Kid theme", a cheerful motif performed by Renata Cortiglioni's children's choir(Tr.1,Tr.12,Tr.19), which often gets reprised with Charleston tempo (Tr.3,Tr.14), in a saloon style with pianola (Tr.7) and with harpsichord (Tr.9). Enrico Simonetti has composed a secondary main theme called "Black Jack", an epic orchestral western theme as a tribute to the Elmer Bernstein style for "The magnificent seven" in Tr.2,Tr.6,Tr.8,Tr.13,Tr.18 and background music for the adventures of the little cowboys (Tr.4,Tr.10,Tr.17). An OST which really deserved it to be rescued and preserved as a tribute to the musical art of Enrico Simonetti, an unforgettable showman and music man of so many extraordinary past seasons of the Italian television."
