|takže nikdo...It’s a pleasure to be releasing a cool soundtrack release to a major studio picture, this one from Universal, composed and conducted by the ever popular fan favorite, Jerry Goldsmith. The Don Is Dead hit theaters in 1973, featuring a terrific cast led by Anthony Quinn. It also offered a story very topical at the time, one about organized-crime families, their allegiances, their conflicts and their bloody gang warfare. Perhaps this was also part of what has led to the movie’s obscurity because 1973 was also the year sandwiching 1972’s legendary epic, The Godfather, with 1974’s equally famous sequel, The Godfather Part II. Any American crime picture coming out between those two epics was destined to be overshadowed. Jerry Goldsmith’s score, however, is now finally available for the first time ever and it’s a terrific one to discover. A virtual feast of his signature seventies trademarks are fully on display here, some of them invented first with this score. Written for full orchestra with an additional synthesizer adding a solitary but prominent color in the music, Goldsmith does what he does best. Engage, move, intrigue and excite. Artwork, contents and sound samples should be available on our site this Monday eve. Orders for the CD begin shipping the following day, Tuesday the 25th. And... please stay safe!
