CD Reviews

Only A Few Dollars More
Greg & Diana Hamilton | Baltimore, MD | 04/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Note, the title on the CD is misleading: this CD does *not* also have the music to "A Fistful of Dollars."At ~28 min, this CD is short but perfectly to the point. All the themes from the movie appear to present, and are exactly as heard in the film. If you love the music from this film, this CD will not disappoint.This soundtrack is a remarkable example of how the music composed for a film can be as integral a part of the creative whole as the directing or writing. It's impossible to think about this movie without the music running through your head!"
Yes, but is that all?

"First the good news. This is the real deal -- the great music I first heard as I sat waiting in a little theatre lobby for the next showing of FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE in 1966. It is NOT one of the imitations of the film soundtrack by somebody-or-other and his orchestra which appeared on the market after the movie became a hit.

Now the bad news. There's less than 17 minutes of music on the CD, and actually just 13 if we exclude the two tracks of drum rolls and trumpet blasts Morricone wrote merely to add drama to something happening on the screen. I could hardly believe the lovely, elegaic "Goodbye, Colonel" is only 1:42 long."
Great movies! Great Soundtracks!

"Both movies, "A Fistful of Dollars" and "For a Few Dollars More" are represented on this CD. There isn't a movie "A Handful of Dollars" much less one with a soundtrack on this compilation. The discrepancy is that the music is in the wrong order. The music from "Few" comes before the music from "Fistful" which is not what you would expect given the title of the CD and the release dates of the movies. What you would expect is great, dramatic music and you get that here. Get the CD. And get the movies as well as the third part of the trilogy, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly." You won't regret the purchase."
