My Tribute to Martin Böttcher

German soundtrack composer Martin Böttcher passed on friday. My old band recorded his Der Ölprinz and Kara Ben Nemsi Effendi main themes, and with Tecumseh Melodie I aimed to understand his unique sound by trying to rebuild some of his trademark devices. Martin Böttcher not only beamed generations of kids into a beautiful adventurous frontier west with his audio magic, but in the mid seventies he also was one – if not the – first sail boarders in Germany!

Knowledgable Dude on Spaghetti Western

Very nice and compact analysis about the Italian western soundtracks recorded between the mid 60s and the mid 70s. My only criticism would be that the presenter is furthering the “alternative fact” that The Shadows recorded Surf Music. I’m not linking to the English wikipedia for the same reason.
