Beat Records is pleased to present on CD “Da uomo a uomo” (aka “Death Rides a Horse”), a Western film directed in 1967 by Giulio Petroni, with a screenplay by Luciano Vincenzoni, photography by Carlo Carlini, editing by Eraldo Da Roma, music by Ennio Morricone and a cast including Lee Van Cleef, John Phillip Law, Luigi Pistilli, Anthony Dawson, Mario Brega, José Torres. Ennio Morricone perfectly managed to describe all the emotions of Bill's revenge against those who massacred his family by creating a recurring main theme in an aggressive ride for guitars and rhythm section, complete with violent sounds and the accompaniment of the choir of Cantori Moderni, which plays a very important role in this soundtrack. This motif is alternated with suspense music almost bordering a Giallo sound, while the choir returns in a sacred theme, a gospel-like tune with beat arrangement used often throughout the soundtrack and a melancholic Latin flamenco with castanets and chorus. Representing one of Ennio Morricone's most iconic scores for the Western genre, this new CD reissue incorporates the mono masters from the original recording sessions as well as the surviving stereo mixes, for a total duration of 75:00.
