Coming off of such avant garde masterpieces as Planet of the Apes and The Mephisto Waltz, Goldsmith turned to a broadly melodic and bluesy approach that captures the film's 1918 Deep South setting and wild shifts in tone. The main theme is a charming blend of Americana, Dixieland and circus atmosphere as it paints a portrait of the contented but oddball title character, a former con man living on the fringes of society. As Candide delivers a heartfelt, calming pre-execution pep talk to his "customer," Goldsmith provides a soft, six-minute spell of Americana foreshadowing his score to Magic (1978). When the story kicks into high gear, the composer enthusiastically touches all the bases, from bluegrass comedy to avant garde suspense to full-scale action.
The Traveling ExecutionerÑnever before released in any formÑis presented in complete form (including deleted and alternate cues) in excellent stereo sound, remixed from the original three-track masters. Liner notes are by Jeff Bond and Lukas Kendall.
