5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Spaghetti Western Soundtrack August 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS was the first Spaghetti Western to establish that genre in the United States. Staring Clint Eastwood, directed by Sergio Leone and scored by Ennio Morricone this initial film was crude but effective establishing from the start the essential components of what defined the look and sound of a Spaghetti Western. Probably the one key element found in almost every Spaghetti Western was the distinctive music. Ennio Morricone was probably the most prolific and successful composer setting the benchmark for all others to follow in the genre. Essential to this CD is the strong main title (Track 1: "Titoli from A Fistful of Dollars"). Most of the successful Spaghetti Westerns centered the score on the main title (THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, ADIOS SABATA, MY NAME IS NOBODY, etc). A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS soundtrack has one of the best main titles. A whistler enunciates the tune while the music builds into galloping intensity. This is truly innovative and distinctive scoring. The quality of this 1964 RCA recording is just incredible. It sounds as crisp and clear as when I first heard this on vinyl when I was very young. My other favorites on this CD are Track 2: "Almost Dead" and Track 3: "Square Dance" true examples of the European vision on the myth of the American Western. I was glad to see that the Suite from A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS was retained for the CD. I love Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western scores. Since this was the first I ever owned, it holds a special place in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent sundtrac March 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Now here we have a film score in a mythical porportion. Enno Morricone has opened a gate to a romantic realm and used the trumpet as an effective story teller.It is not by a mere chance that dacades after the release of this sound trac we still love to hear these tunes and still experience the same hair rising effect by the haunting sound of the trumpeter playing the main tune. The command and knowledge of music and deep love for the instrument was made it possible that the composer could beautifully conway the story to us.Enno Morricon has surely started a culture and cult that is beyond our realm.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fistful of Praise September 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The cult of the Man With No Name is still growing and this CD is what started it all. Ennio Morricone, the gifted composer-arranger responsible for the original theme and background music, delivers more than a fistful of sounds. As the linear notes on the CD says, the music matches the excitement... note for note...shot for shot.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this release! March 26, 2014

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
So I bought this instant mp3 download album thinking I would be getting the full soundtrack to A Fistful of Dollars. Little did I know that the full soundtrack is available for instant download listed in Italian as " Per un pugno di dollari (Original motion picture soundtrack) ". Its a mistake on my part but that's what I get for buying music at 4am LOL. It also doesn't help that the full soundtrack will not show up if you search in the mp3 department like I initially did. Well, lesson learnt. So I recommend you avoid this release and buy the full one where you get 9 more songs for 1 more dollar!

5.0 out of 5 stars Look no further December 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have had a few different versions of this, and find the sonic quality of this version to be the vest I have heard. This has several cuts I have not heard previously. If you are interested in either the movie or the composer, you will be pleased with this.

Now for those that like the originals or a close facsimile this is your music. I don't know for a fact this is the original but I have seen the movie enough times to know it sounds like the original music.
