From the Manufacturer

The 1972 Universal feature Joe Kidd could be considered Lalo Schifrin's first "traditional" western score, and he approached the assignment with his customary cool confidence. Eschewing the Copland-esque form, he played on Eastwood's "spaghetti" roots and fondness for Ennio Morricone and also introduced a "modern" styling with an array of exotic instruments, including cimbalom and electric guitars, to create a distinctive aural world for the vistas of mountains and deserts.

The final release length of Joe Kidd was a lean, mean 88 minutes, but it is clear that Schifrin composed music for a significantly longer version. The 43 minutes of music on this premiere Intrada CD is a far more satisfying feast than that available in the finished film.

The recording sessions for Joe Kidd were captured on 35mm three-channel magnetic film and transferred onto 1/2″ 15 ips three-channel tape. These three-channel masters were maintained in the Universal vaults in beautiful condition. After BluWave Audio, the sound transfer division of Universal Studios, made digital transfers of each 1/2″ element, we folded them down into two-track stereo and assembled the score in picture sequence.
