The second volume that SINGULAR SOUNDTRACK dedicates to the unmissable
argentinian composer Waldo de los Ríos is focused in two of his soundtracks
for westerns, to which he gave his unique style, away both from the genuine american
sound and the italian stilistical rupture that Ennio Morricone and other
italian composers brought into the genre. Based on the folklore of his country,
in orchestrations based in symphonical and in the latest modern tendencies of
Central Europe, Waldo de los Ríos ideas for the western can only be described as
A TOWN CALLED HELL, co-production between Spain-USA (1971) directed
by Robert Parrish and with an outstanding cast starring Telly Savallas, Robert
Shaw, Martin Landau, Stella Stevens, Michael Craig and Al Lettieri. Never released
before, it's masters were found in the private archives of the composer and
remixed and remastered from the original 1/4 tapes.
SAVAGE PAMPAS, western produced in 1966 by Samuel Bronston in Spain and
directed by the Argentinian Hugo Fregonese, it was starred by Robert Taylor, and
told the strange event of the battle between the American confederates against the
indian and bandits in the distant Argentinian Pampa. It gave Waldo de los Ríos
the chance to research and experiment with the origins of the “música criolla”
and the folklore of Agentina, composing a great symphonic score with choral
pieces and a special percussion section with strange instruments created by himself.
The score had 63 tracks, but they had a poor sound, and were partly shortened.
Fortunately, the composer prepared a brilliant album with 6 suites from
the original recording, 47 minutes of music released on Hispavox only in Spain
Remixed in spectacular stereo from the original master, this is the first AUTHORIZED
OFFICIAL release of a western classic, and a greatest score by Waldo de
