It’s been sort of a tradition at the SWDb (with some interruptions), and also at our sister sites, to publish a few honest shopping recommendation at the end of the year. These usually serve three purposes. First, they shall help guide either newcomers or those who haven’t kept track of what came out that year to some good ideas for making a fan happy for the holidays. Second, readers who use our Amazon links greatly contribute to the continued existence of this website, because the SWDb will earn a referral fee. Third, it helps the list’s creators to themselves review the year and gain an understand of what’s been achieved in the world of the spaghetti western.
So without further ado, here’s the 2018 Holiday Shopping Guide - but with a twist.
Rules: This guide will be compiled collaboratively. In each reply to this post, please name a release (BluRay, DVD, CD/Soundtrack, Book, Documentary, Merchandising article…) that came out this year, maybe include a picture, and shortly describe why you’d recommend folks to get this for under the christmas tree (or kwanzaa or whatever). I will modify each post (please respect this) and ensure that they include an SWDb-Amazon link, and a link to the item’s page in the SWDb itself in case we have one.
The entire list will ideally be announced next week, so please type away. Keep it to really the must-haves of the year, the cool finds, the top notch releases, the rarities, the collector’s items, etc. I will start with a first item, kind of to illustrate the format.
1. The Complete Sartana Collection
First on everyone’s list but those who already have it, should be this amazing box from Arrow Video, which includes all Sartana films in amazing quality, with a bunch of great extras. We were wowed, as you can read in the SWDb’s review. And so will you!
