Digitmovies is releasing on CD, for the very first time in full edition, Franco Bizio's western movie "And now... make your peace with god" OST.
Franco Bixio, at the time an eighteen years old boy, composed an acustic OST with a smaller team, arranged and directed by Vince Tempera, with tipical Beat sonorities. Main theme "Like a coward", performed by Mary Ushua, lays among the end credits and was published on Cinevox SC 1060 single, together with the track "Una diligenza a Tombstone". Franco Bixio retakes the main theme with several instrumental versions, occasionally slow and fast, alternating it with a delicate love theme that stands in tense and violent atmospheres. Also, Saloon music figures both in instrumental and sung versions. For this CD of ours we were able to use the original Recording Session's mono masters as well as the original single's mono master. Unfortunately though, the opening credits, instrumental version of "Just a coward", were beyond repair lost. So, for historical and artistic reasons, we decided to take them from the audio of the film, which had a mix of gunfires and horses.
