CD Reviews

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."
Brilliant Morricone Masterpiece

"Many people think that the soundtrack to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is Morricone's definative work, as they should. It is a classic and so tends to overshadow the rest of his scores. However, the soundtrack to For a Few Dollars More is by no means a throw together piece, as everybody who has watched the movie knows. It fluctuates and flows, moves and shakes, keeps the listener enthralled to the very edges of their being. Ever driven to the sound of Manko riding his horse? Ever shot apples off a tree with a classic six shooter? Ever uttered the phrase "No old man, thought I was having trouble with my counting, but it's alright now" after you've just piled all of the men you've just killed into the back of a wagon? If you have, you probably should have your own soundtrack, but if you haven't, buy this cd right now."
