One of the all-time great Western scores, restored to its original length-that means an additional 10 tracks! A spaghetti-flavored treat for soundtrack collectors!

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.Read more ›
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).

This is a great soundtrack, but with this release you're missing much of it, and some songs are shortened. Read morePublished on Oct. 11 2010 by Nicolai Michel
