Directed by Sergio Garrone, Django il bastardo (1969) is considered by critics to be one of his best films. Here we have one of the most iconic Spaghetti Western characters, Django, in one of his final movies, this time played by Anthony Steffen.
It's not the first time Vasco Vassil Kojucharov (a Maestro very dear to our publishing group) scored this character. Thanks to the Nomus association, archivist of the Kojucharov fund, we retrieved four master tapes and many documents from the recording session for this soundtrack, which—coming as no surprise, being a representative example of its genre—reveals all of the musical skills of the Maestro. His immensely creative vein is evident from the main titles, which—performed with typical instrumentation for Italian Western movies—winks an eye to the spy genre.
A wonderful unreleased score, finally available for your listening pleasure. The CD comes in a jewel case, with mastering by Enrico De Gemini, a 12-page booklet with graphic design by Daniele De Gemini and liner notes by Alessandro Bratus (English-language translation edited by Josh Mitchell).
