I have found 3 YouTube videos which combine to show some (or possibly all?) of  the soundtrack differences between the original version and the "special edition" of DYS.

I will link to them here in the order in which these sequences appear in the film

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ayEhkxyMR0

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gg_hPzmZYC4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOc13iAmXPc

In each clip, the original version is shown first, followed by the "special edition" version

I always hate when idiots from a studio mess with a Master's work. With that said, I specifically cannot stand the alteration of the music in the final flashback sequence (in the last of the links above). So some idiots in a studio decide that they want to impose a different interpretation of the final scene than Leone intended. (Not to mention that when you consider their music, Coburn's final extended smile during that flashback makes no sense). F&^%$#% 'em!

I have had a problem with this for a long time, in general I mean, but also (though not as much) in DYS' case. (Of all SL's movies I watched DYS considerably less times than the others.)

I might have mentioned this also in the example of the various editions/cuts of The Blues Brothers, in which the difference is more noticeable. Unfortunately and apparently, not as much to the others, as I haven't heard anybody complain. I don't understand, it is not a minor concern and certainly not an improvement, for me it completely changes the feeling of that particular scene, for worse.

Blade Runner is another example I can think of, and maybe the 'improved' gunshots in GBU should fall in the same category.

I have a hard time with the music, its easier with the gunshots and edited curses, but I have a harder time noticing subtle differences in the music, especially DYS which like DD I haven't watched nearly as much as the others (save OUTIA). Even with those comparisons is the music just not starting at the right spot in the film or is it actually different..

I don't think I ever heard the original GBU audio (the only formats I have watched GBU in are iTunes and the Special Edition dvd). Is there any way to get the original?

Single-disc GBU DVD likely still available, and for under $10.

but these single discs would be the original 1967 release, which is about 17 minutes shorter, correct?

There's no pint, only the gunshots were altered as far as I can tell.

Yes the shorter version, but with the original mono sound.

The additional scenes are there as bonus in Italian with subs.

Yes, your choice is either the 2003 reconstruction with the new foley, or the original U.S. version with the original effects and the shorter runtime. There are no other English language versions.

From my knowledge, except for the gunshots: yes.
