I've said this before and I've tried back then (on this board) to find which review I read it in (I cut clippings and saved the ones that I had bought, out of newspapers, magazines, etc., etc.), and remember, I saw these film upon initial release myself, and yes the skies were always blue.  However one reviewer did mention that the film had a more "golden" mediterranean sun than American Westerns. So there must have been some element of gold in the original presentation. This piss yellow you mention sounds too excessive. Watching these films in a Times Square theater on a huge screen I can assure you they weren't "piss" yellow, but they weren't a perfect match to the looks of a typical American Western either.

I don't have the Kino but a friend who does tells me of a music track mistake in the desert scene when Blondie Collapses and Tuco dismounts. The long chord in the Italian print is in the Kino Theatrical cut which it shouldn't be.

I have compared a few versions and found that the chord starts when Tuco dismounts in my Italian TV version and in the 2004 Extended cut it starts on the first close up of Blondie's face. It sounds different as well. The Italian version is more of a drone sound and the 2004 has a higher 'tension' pitch.

I also saw these all on initial US release as teenager; none of us noticed anything off on the color.  In fact, we had no idea at the time that these were actually filmed in Spain, but we did wonder why there were so many Italian actors in them !
