Once again we are proud to present another beautiful and rather obscure but very precious gem for the THE KRONOS GOLD COLLECTION.

THE PROUD AND DAMNED is a 1972 film, written and directed by Ferde Grofe Jr and starring the late Chuck Connors in the lead role. Also starring Aron Kincaid, Jose Greco, Henry Capps, Smokey Roberds, Peter Ford, Andres Marquis and Cesar Romero! The story takes place in 1870. Five ex-Confederate soldiers get embroiled in a foreign civil war south of the border.

The music for THE PROUD AND DAMNED was composed an conducted by GENE KAUER & DOUGLAS M. LACKEY, a duo that scored a long string of films together, most notably Agent for H.A.R.M. (1966) Brother of the Wind (1973) Across The Great Divide (1977) and ADVENTURE FAMILY (1977).

Their music brought a really high level of excitement to this film with a very strong latin flavour to the score, primarily a Mexican flavour with a Hollywood flare.

It is an adventure score with lots of beautiful melodies, where the acoustic guitar plays a key role in both the action cues and the more romantic ones, underscoring the relationships and interactions of our Proud and Damned crew with the locals with whome they have formed a bond.

A very exciting release that was prevously never released in any format, making this yet another World Premier release by Kronos Records! This release would have not been possible without the help of David Schecter and the Lackey Estate. Our deepest appreciation and that of all those who buy this CD.
