Most intriguing theory. Do you guys know what music from other films are suspected to be rejected GBU bits?

As for the 2nd part of "rope bridge", I believe it was intended for the grotto scene instead of the "shooting gallery". It fits perfectly:

Hmmm. That seems to add interest to the scene . . .

RE: your discussion of how Leone-rejected Morricoen music wound up in other directors' films:

that may well be true, but it's also intersting that Frayling has actually mentioned the opposite: that Leone took pride in taking Morricone music that other directors had rejected, and then turning them into hit music with his own films. I believe he discusses this in the FOD chapter of STDWD; I think the main theme of FOD (which, as we know, was an arrangement Morricone had composed for Woody Guthrie's "Pastures of Plenty") was rejected by another director before Leone took it.

The saloon piano tune from For A Few Dollars More is reused in either The Big Gundown or Death Rides a Horse.

The music on the expanded GBU soundtrack is taken from the actual tracks that were mixed into the final version.
Thus "Manco" is what is refered to as a "dialed down" track. That is the re-recording mixer turned the volume down
during the mix.
So, for that reason it is unlikely the Grottto scene music would be preserved. Also, the shooting gallery scene directly follows Rope bridge and the album is presented in chronlogical order.

The FOD case is unique and was never repeated.
