Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The concluding chapter of director Sergio Leone's epochal Man With No Name trilogy ushered film scorer Ennio Morricone into the pop mainstream courtesy of a hit cover of its main title by American Hugo Montenegro. More importantly, it both showcased the composer's spectacularly inventive range and set him up for even greater triumphs to come with Leone and others. But aficionados of il Maestro Morricone's G,B&U soundtrack knew its original editions contained but the main thematic/musical elements of the spaghetti western epic -- until now. The addition of ten previously unissued cues on this newly remastered edition render the landmark score in its full glory, nearly doubling its running time in the bargain. While some of these new elements are but spare, haunting reworkings of familiar motifs (including Allessandro Allessandroni's trademark guitar riffs and the chilling vocal shrieks the composer used to evoke the howling of coyotes) that help expand its emotional dynamic, others like "Sentenza," "La Missione San Antonio" (a haunting instrumental version of "A Soldier's Story" that effectively presages his elegiac Once Upon A Time in The West and "Il Bandito Monco" significantly add to its expansive scope, firmly restating its claim as Morricone's first true classic. -- Jerry McCulley

Product Description

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!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip this and buy the Italian import from GDM. May 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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 Footlight.com and Arksquare.com. Happy listening.

1.0 out of 5 stars They pulled a fast one on us February 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is one of, if not the greatest score ever composed for a film. But this new "expanded" and enhanced CD is a travesty.

It's pretty unbelievable that this "expanded" version still contains the 5-minute version of "Il Triello" (The Trio) that cuts off abruptly and without any proper buildup or denouement at the trumpet fanfare. And considering that "Il Triello" is one of the defining pieces in the entire score, and represents perhaps THE defining moment in the movie, it's also unacceptable.

My advice is simple: Skip over this one and order the Italian import version, which is easily available from Amazon. It's titled under the movie's Italian title, "Il Buono, il Brutto, il Cattivo." It may cost more, but it is well worth it almost for the complete "Il Triello" alone, as well as the complete 6-minute "Story of a Soldier."

1.0 out of 5 stars Go With The Import. February 7, 2007
By The Bij
Format:Audio CD
Get the import "Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo", by GDM. The sound quality is ten fold better. The expanded version does not do Morricone's talent any justice. And it still has the abridged version of "The Trio".

A bit off topic, I found the same problem with Ikura Ifukube. Again a brilliant composer (known for Godzilla), again short changed by American released CD's. Always go for the import it seems.

This is a great soundtrack, but with this release you're missing much of it, and some songs are shortened. Get the real thing: Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo [IMPORT] ASIN: B0006ICFJA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better without the imagery May 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the problems with listening to soundtracks, especially from movies that you are pretty familar with, is that music seems irrevocably tied with the visual imagery of the film. And while this is also true in this case-- the haunting, and by now culturally cliche motif at the heart of the film-- taking the visual away from the music lets you appreciate the music on its own. The "dessert" segment, which in the movie is merely backround, has a life and shape of it's own. With the exception of the oveture and final peice (the most familar to a movie goer) the rest of the music, taken out of the context of the film, has a vibrant, spirited life of its own.

You can listen to this for its own sake--and should.
