Any Gun Can Play, Amigos

This upload features tracks from Stelvio Cipriani , Armando Trovaioli, Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Luis Bacalov and more.

The earliest memories I have of watching Westerns are of watching the Italian kind. The clothes, the locations, the characters, the stories were all more appealing to me than the more strait-laced American versions on offer. But the most striking thing for me was the relentlessly macho music. These were films set in the past yet they had these strange modern-sounding scores that were filled with angry guitars, passionately soaring strings, punch-drunk brass and loud, howling choruses that were sometimes guttural, sometimes angelic.
The lazy cliché is that all Italian Western scores are variations on the work that Ennio Morricone started, but hopefully what you'll find here are enough examples to dismiss that notion.
