Japanese composer Mayuzumi's work on this film may be one of the best Italian-style film scores not written by an Italian, featuring a wonderful, heroic theme for Yûjirô Ishihara's driver character. Though it takes places in the 1960s, the film is occasionally scored like a traditional Italo-Western, including whistling and a choral performance of the main theme!
This is a premiere presentation of the score which hasn't been released in any form until now, beatifully mastered by Claudio Fuiano from the original stereo mastertapes, courtesy of Gruppo Sugar. The richly illustrated 8-page booklet features liner notes by Gergely Hubai who discusses this rarely seen film and shares his insights about the music.
