Bastard, Go and Kill (USA)
Kopfgeld für Chako (West Germany)
Digitmovies continues riding along sunny scorching deserts and looking for soundtracks of the Italian Western genre. We now issue for the first time on CD the complete OST in full stereo by Carlo Rustichelli for the film "Bastardo ... vamos a matar!" ("Bastar, go and kill "-" Chaco ") directed in 1971 by Luigi Mangini and starring George Eastman, Lincoln Tate, Antonella Steni, Franco Lantieri, Furio Meniconi, Giorgio Dolfin, Jesus Guzman. A bounty hunter is tracking a Mexican sentenced to be hanged; when later on he realizes that the accusations against him are unfounded, he helps him tracking down the real guilty ones. Together they will do justice. In 1971 no record of this OST was issued, but only in 1986 CAM released a 33 rpm LP with a pressing of no more than thousand copies in the limited Phoenix series (PHCAM 08) with four tracks selected by the composer, combined with music from "God Forgives ... I Do Not!" And "Kill Or Die!." For our CD we could have access to the stereo master tapes of the original session conducted by Gianfranco Plenizio and with the Choir I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni so that every note recorded has been included here with a total time of 51:22. Carlo Rustichelli has written a Mexican-flavored OST with a cheerful main theme performed by orchestra and choir introduced in the "Main Titles" (Tr. 1) and later reprised in Tr.4, Tr.6, Tr.9, Tr.13, Tr.17 and in the conclusive "Final". The composer alternates this lively theme with wild Mariachi tunes(Tr. 3, Tr.5, Tr.7, Tr.11, Tr.19, Tr.21, Tr.23), with dramatic and mysterious tracks (Tr.2, Tr.8, Tr.18, Tr.19, Tr.22) in which also variations of the American anthem "Star Spangled Banner" are included, and with a delicate love theme (Tr. 10, Tr.18, Tr.30).
