Finally it looks like they have found most of the soundtrack that was still missing from the 55 min extended version:

I likely will not purchase.  Somehow in the past I obtained a 50-track version, and combined with my GDM version and a 39-track version, compiled my own "ultimate" GBU version for myself.  Nowadays I doubt I would remember how I actually did that.

It was never " missing"- I've owned it for years.
Morricone actually cares about how his music is presented on albums.
He curated a fantastic fifty nine minute for GDM combining  the stereo version and mono film tracks into a pleasurable whole.

The new version decoupled the two into the complete score in mono and the ORIGINAL stereo sound track album.
So, you do get several minutes of previously unreleased score. Much of it is in short cues that don't make for a great listen. .Others merely repeat thematic material.
The complete score is chopped up into forty three cues ( the MGM is thirty.nine)


There also seem to be some alternate versions of existing pieces.

I have the GDM, EMI and MGM promo with complete score.
I'm happy.

Thanks for the heads up, Jordan. I placed my order. I already have the GDM and EMI CDs but couldn't pass on this.

From the liner notes (which are great by the way and include some fun quotes from Eastwood):

Disc 1 and 2 were restored from the monaural original recording session.
Also premiering on Disc 2 is a longer album version of "La storia di un soldato" featuring three additional verses, remixed from the recently discovered original International Recording Studios 1/2" three-track tape.
Following an extensive search, Disc 3 showcases Morricone's best-selling original soundtrack assembly remastered from the first generation 1/4" master tape. This has allowed us to restore two seconds to the opening of 'll deserto" and, crucially, restore eight seconds to the start of "Marcetta senza speranza"
rather than utilizing the truncated fade-in present on other 1/4" tapes and heard on North American CD releases.
It is worth noting that Morricone's soundtrack assembly plays in film sequence, although it features some different performances. For instance, the second half of "il Triello" is the original version; Morricone rescored the scene after his album had been finalized.

I received my CD set last night and will have a proper listening session tonight.

Did a deleted scene from FAFDM make it into the booklet?

These are the lyrics I'm aware of (below).  If there are additional lyrics, can you please post them??


: THE STORY OF A SOLDIER - English : lyrics by Tommie Connor...(best known perhaps for "I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"):

: THE STORY OF A SOLDIER (as printed/sung on the "2001 COMPLETE" record/cassette/CD)
*Bugles are calling from prairie to shore,
*"Sign up" and "Fall in" and march off to war;
Drums beating loudly: Hearts beating proudly
March Blue and Grey : And smile as you go.

Smoke hides the valleys: and fire paints the plains,
Loud roar the cannons: 'Till ruin remains;
*Blue grass and cotton : Burnt and forgotten :
*All hope seems gone : So soldier March on to die. 

Count all the crosses and count all the tears,
These are the losses and sad souvenirs;
This devastation once was a nation
So fall the dice, how high is the price?

*There in the distance : A flag I can see, 
*Scorched and in ribbons : But whose can it be?
*How ends the story, : Whose is the glory?
*Ask if we dare : Our comrades out there who sleep.


Count all the crosses and count all the tears,
These are the losses and sad souvenirs;
This devastation once was a nation
So fall the dice, how high is the price we pay?

* = Lines on "original" soundtrack of Story of a Soldier

They used a photo from FAFDM in the booklet yes. It's from the scene that was re filmed at a different location so it's as seen in the film and not the first go at it.

Not available on iTunes.

I'm very happy with this purchase. I really enjoyed listening to the remastered soundtrack and the various unused musical cues/alternate versions that weren't available before.

The Quartet extended mono version of " Ballad of a Soldier, merely repeats the three stanzas.
They are not " new verses" as claimed in.the notes.
However, the extended STEREO version does indeed add verses.
This is the highlight of the alternate versions!

Quartet records says they're out of stock. Where else can we get this?

Just finished listening to the whole thing, sound quality is fantastic, even in mono. You can tell they went back to the master tapes and captured everything in high resolution to start. My favorite part is the alternate versions of familiar pieces, and the set is definitely aimed at the fan who wants to hear everything ever recorded or mixed for the film (which is me). For the casual fan, there is a lot of redundancy for sure.

Speaking of soundtracks, check this out, Leone working on foley for the film:
