Wanted Dead Or Alive, The Sound Of Spaghetti Western
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 1995
The Spaghetti western was an odd phenomenon in which Europeans, seduced by visions of the mythical American west, made their own movies about it and composed music to go with those visions. While the movies have mostly disappeared from memory, the charming, strange, twangy-yet-Italian soundtrack music endures thanks to its kitschy brilliance.
