Format: Audio CD
Timed with the release of the special edition DVD of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," this soundtrack presents an expansion of Ennio Morricone's score with ten previously unavailable tracks and a running time of 55 minutes. The sound has also been excellently remastered, making a huge improvement over the poor quality of the old LP and CD. Any fan of the film or the music of Morricone will want to grab this right away.
A few cautions however: nowhere on the CD packaging or in the enclosed booklet is the listener informed that the new tracks are in MONO, not stereo (stereo masters do not exist for the new tracks). The mono sound quality is clear and well done, but it does clash significantly with the original stereo tracks. I don't think this should prevent anyone from purchasing this CD, but buyers should be aware that the sound varies tremendously between tracks. Also, the enclosed booklet contains no liner notes or information on the music. It does contain three spreads showing close-ups of the eyes of the main characters -- a cool design idea -- but the album producers missed a golden opportunity for presenting background data, restoration notes, and track-by-track commentary. A score of this historical importance certainly deserves this sort of treatment!
With this score, Morricone pushed to its limits his rough, weird style of Western music that he developed in his two previous Westerns for Sergio Leone. The famous "Main Title" sums up Morricone's approach perfectly: bizarre instruments, jagged changes in sound, and a thunderous tempo. This main theme appears throughout the score in many variations, depending on which member of the unholy trinity it is describing.

First of all, this is a bad reissue of Morricone's classic score. Like the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for"--for eleven bucks I suppose it's not a bad deal. But the sound quality is rather poor. Plus it is missing some tracks from the superior release by GDM. This edition does not include the full version of "La Storia Di Un Soldato." This is the truncated version featured on the original American LP and CD release. The real version has a different introduction and is almost six minutes. To me, this song is one of Morricone's greatest pieces combining haunting melodies, beautiful vocals, and insightful lyrics by Tommie Connor. Its absence on this so-called special expanded edition really discourages any reason to purchase it. Also, the last track on the album is shorter than the Italian release by three minutes. The packaging of this disc is really lame as well. I know this is a minor criticism but a little more thought could have been put in the album's graphics and booklet. I guess many record companies are under the impression that less means more. Well, for a magnificent soundtrack by the maestro Morricone more is better. So, I suggest skipping this "expanded-lite" edition and getting the real thing. It can be found on Amazon under the title "Il Buno, Il Brutto, and Il Cattivo." It will cost more, but if you love the music of Morricone as much as I do, you won't mind paying the extra money. Also you can find it on and Happy listening.

In 1990, Ennio Morricone's legendary score for the classic western "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" was released on CD - with half the tracks of the Italian CD. While the Italian CD has been available for some time now, it has been pricey and quite hard to find. Now, thanks to the Special Edition DVD release of the film, Ennio Morricone's soundtrack for the film has been re-released on CD, complete and remastered. Quite possibly the greatest western score ever (although Morricone's "Once Upon a Time in the West" is a close competitor), it is easily the most famous and referenced. It has such a lonely, powerful, and wandering feeling to it; basically, it completely captures the western feeling. The album begins with the unforgettable title theme and moves through a variety of adventurous and - what shall we call it, "westerny"? - pieces, including "The Sundown" (which was featured in Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill: Vol. 2"), "The Death of a Soldier" and the classic, suspenseful finale, "The Ecstasy of Gold". Essential for Morricone fans, western fans, and any one who even begins to call themselves a western collector.

...or does the remastering seem a little uneven? After listening to it a few times, it seems like the original tracks towards the beginning of the album are a bit subdued and/or muffled, while the adjacent bonus tracks are much louder and clearer. I don't remember hearing this towards the end of the album, but it is very noticable in between "The Strong" and "Senteza." Also there is bonus music that I don't remember hearing during the film.
These are minor quibbles, however. GBU has always been one of my favorite soundtracks, and the addition of 20 minutes or so of new music is long overdue. The expanded album retains the narrative cohesion of the film much more than the original LP, which was more a selection of isolated musical tracks. GBU saw Morricone in top form, and now we can appreciate his genius more than ever before. Well worth the price, even if you already own the original soundtrack (especially since it's only $11).
