- FIRST TIME EVER ON VINYL - EXCLUSIVE REMASTERING - EXCLUSIVE ARTWORK - in collaboration with BEYOND HORROR DESIGN - BONUS poster (first pressing only) Bruno Nicolai met Morricone when they were both studying at Rome's Santa Cecilia music academy.
Nicolai was the conductor on many of the maestro's scores from For a Few Dollars More onwards, but also found himself with plenty of composing work of his own throughout the 60s and 70s.
Nicolai became almost as prolific as the maestro himself, particularly within the western and giallo genres.
'The Red Queen' is a great example of his giallo work. It has a distinctive and memorable main theme, and a second ascending piano-led theme that accompanies some of the suspense sequences.
