Digitmovies continues it's journey into Italian Westerns releasing for the first time the original soundtrack to the 1966 movie El Cisco (starring William Berger) composed and conducted by Bruno Nicolai. Until today not a single note of this soundtrack has been issued. The mastertapes were in the Edipan archives and were in particularly good condition, with an excellent stereo sound. M° Nicolai composed a symphonic score which alternates quiet pastoral moments with other violent very dramatic and dissonant ones given by powerful brass and percussions, incorporating classical elements of both Italian and American Westerns. After a dissonant Jew's harp flourished string-introduction (Jew's harp is a very much often used instrument here), the El Cisco motif appears for the first time in tr. 1. This epic theme was written in the style of Deguello for trumpet solo, accompanied by an orchestra and choir. It is reprised later in tr. 6, 9, 10, 17 breaking the atmosphere of mysticism and violence as musically described by tracks 2, 3, 7, 14, 15 and many other ones. The famous harmonica of Franco de Gemini appears in tr. 2, 5, 12, 16 and 18. Bruno Nicolai also composed a soft and evocative love theme for guitar and strings (tr. 13), later reprised in tr. 21, while the ethnic side was characterized by a slow Mexican Mariachi tune for guitar solo (tr. 25). for this world premier CD release every note recorded in the 1966 stereo master tapes was used; certain sound defects (magnetic anomalies etc.) present on the original analogue source can persist despite the digital remastering. Limited edition compact disc - 8 full colour pages de-luxe booklet Ost. 2006.
