This is a great little primer for the Spaghetti Western genre. Hughes briskly covers the key films in chronological order, adding informative notes to each review and ending the slim volume with a useful bibliography and website guide. Also included is a chapter on Spaghetti Western soundtracks. All-in-all, an ideal introduction by an author who knows his stuff. One of the best titles in this compact series. A must for the novice and those not completely familiar with all the genre’s offerings. The revised edition show will be available in May of this year.
