The Grand Duel by Luis Bacalov is now available on vinyl for the first time, and just in time for its 50th anniversary, which is also today. The complete and expanded score has been sourced from the original master tapes, remastered for vinyl, and includes fresh new artwork from Tony Stella, and liner notes from Tough Guy Film Expert Mike Malloy. Scar Flair Records is offering this iconic score in a limited edition of 500 copies. It has cues handpicked by Quentin Tarantino for Kill Bill and will be offered in two random colors: Van Cleef Black & O-Ren White.
Filled with sinister music not typical of the western, The Grand Duel is a powerful score by Academy Award Winning composer Luis Bacalov (Il Postino: The Postman) that had cues handpicked and used to perfection by Quentin Tarantino in his 2004 film Kill Bill Volume 1 for the animated Origin of O-Ren Ishii scenes. It features harmonica playing from Franco De Gemini (Once Upon a Time in the West), vocals by Edda Dell’Orso (The Ecstasy of Gold in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly), as well as choir work from I Cantori Moderni di Alessandroni (Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy).
