Another great release, Chris Malone really is a magician. Here's a couple of alternate covers ...

Yavar, as to that review, I only really said it was well done because I enjoyed reading it. It kept me going throughout. And made some interesting points. It's the internet, there's a low bar. wink

But it also shows why we can all use an editor, who could point out that if everything is terrible then nothing, you know, could be good.

Everything Basil wrote was what I was thinking when I saw this in my email today.

By coincidence, I heard Elmer conduct his Mockingbird suite this morning on our Classical music radio station. And thought then, "why didn't you just pay Aaron for his music, Elmer?!" when it went all Coplandeque. Except he always brought his own sensibility. Still, feeling tired of the usual cliches....

And frankly, a rape-revenge Western sure as shootin' ain't my cuppa. (Kinda wish it weren't anyone's.) It's the one Raquel Welch Western I haven't seen. (Though, to be honest, I've only seen Bandolero and 100 Rifles because of the Goldsmith scores - but actually enjoy them both on their own terms.)

But then y'all kept going on about it, so I thought I'd have a listen to the clips. And man, they are sweet indeed!

It may just be nostalgia calling, but hell, I'm even enjoying the harmonica, and I almost never do.


By the way, there is a low saxophone or something chugging away in the main title that sounds like it's from early Michael Nyman Band - or vice versa. Kinda cool!

I love that sax! I asked Bobbengan about it in an earlier post as I suspected it might be John Scott. He asked John who said it was quite possible as he was doing a lot of session work around that time.

By the way, who is Ken Throrne? Lol

The estate of Ken Thorne should sue Lokutus because this 'nobody' named 'ThRorne' is getting credit for Ken's music. smile

I think that alternative poster does not represent the film very well at all.
Hannie looking like shes posing with the 3 brothers who rape her? Its a terrible picture and is the total opposite tone to the plot. Alright as a behind-the-scenes on-set picture and thats about it.
Im very happy with the existing poster (although even that has a bit of license).
But theres nothing wrong with blatant sexy.

I agree that it doesn't represent the film very well, but that was the poster that Paramount went with in the U.S. I guess they only had so many publicity photos to choose from.

The film’s production company, Curtwel Productions, was owned by Raquel Welch and her husband at the time, Patrick Curtis. Curtis met with Tony Tenser of Tigon British Film Productions with a view to obtaining funding for a movie starring Welch. Curtis proposed a horror movie or a Western. Tenser, who had always wanted to make a Western, picked that. Tigon put up 100% of the budget, while Curtwel put up their services—Welch as star and Curtis as producer. Neither Curtis nor Welch took a salary, instead taking profit participation. While, the film performed reasonably at the U.K. box office, it was a commercial disappointment in the U.S., grossing an average $4.5 million.

I've just finished playing this little gem. And it's lovely. The sound is excellent. Lots of detail comes through that I don't remember- punchy tympani, warm strings, percussion is nice( tambourine,castanets etc). It also plays well. Though I think the singer/ song is a bit naff. Though, a nice touch ( for me), they seemed to have left a slightly longer pause before it

Sounds good.
Mine will be awhile though, as it starts its journey in my Intrada basket until the next big order completes.

It does sound good n clean. I won't be comparing it to the old one, though. I rarely do. In case there is something about the old un I like(!)- be it rare.
