Except "Il Federale", the rest of the cds are impossible to find.

I've been looking for these cds for years without any succes.

3 of the greatest in my book:
 
1. ennio morricone (my personal fav. enough said !)
2. bernard herrmann  (hitchcock's psyco could easily been a floop w/ out herrman's score). the beatles' "elenor rigby" has a touch of herrmann thanks to george martian. not to mention herrmann's swan song "taxi driver" theme.
3. dominic frontiere composed & conducted early "outer limits" scores.

My favorite soundtrack composers are Morricone, Korngold (Adv. of Robin Hood, Captain Blood, sea hawk), E. Bernstein (Magnificent Seven, Great Escape, Sons of Katie Elder), F. Waxman (Taras Bulba), J. Williams (Jaws, Superman, Raiders), J. Barry (From russia with Love, Goldfinger).  B. Hermann was great, but I don't listen to any of his as "standalone", the others I listen to regularly in my truck.

hot-damn my first reply ! and from cusser . my day is made !!
how on god's green earth i would leave out old e. burnstien or for that matter jerry goldsmith beats the little jimmy dickens out of me.
i've long scince worn out my copy of sons of k.elder, my 87 year old mom's favorite movie. we love the way the duke handeled his role.
but mag.7 ? now your into mqueen territory buddy.  he  like j. lennon ,was one of us.  a while ago, i posted several peices on the imdb concerning "soldier in the rain".......wait. sorry cusser i got off the subject.
i'm in a quandry here. now that you bring up john berry's name i'm bewildered @ just who is my fav. as "goldfinger" the greatest bond movie  yet.  funny, it to was number 3 in a series just as G.B.&U. was.
 on stage i have a great deal of fun segueing blues tunes w/ that musical pocket watch theme or the alfred hitchcock theme.  let's folks know i'm not tryin to git too serious w/ my music and it gets chuckles ever time.
  gets me thinking what to do next as i never do the same show twice.  self-taught and can't read music.
as sonyboy williamson sang "don't start me talkin' I'll tell you ever thang i know". in this world my freind there are two different kinds of people. those who make thier point and those who won't shut up.
what can i say ?
all the best 'n thanx for gettin in touch. cusser 'n cigar  joe are my hero's. you dudes flat know your stuff bass-ackwards.
if you want to hear me play i'm on "out of the dark" w/ walter "wolfman" washington & the roadmasters web-site outa new orleans.  or just go to google and punch in kermit"champ" young. that is if ya like that low down filthy funky stuff that makes you shake your butt and move on down the line.
HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU TIL WE MEET AGAIN.

daviid lynch and all those dedicated to tough it out w/ him back in his "eraserhead" days i have but tree words : SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF ~~!
..........maybe thats where tuco's 3rd gun came from.
what if leone and hitchcock would have collabarated or shall we say  clobbered w/ one another ?  
i'm in total awe @ all of those musicians, vocalist , bell ringers who workerd under morricone, who worked for leone. not event to mention old clint hiself !

Morricone is God to me.

But I like another film composers: John Barry, I like him very much; Hans Zimmer; James Horner (some of his work like Braveheart or Devil's Own); a few soundtracks by Philip Glass (Kundun, Truman Show).

hey again shorty !   Grin

we're both in total agreement. EM is god. finito !!

never the less let's review.  without  p. glass, barry,  mancini , what indeed would our favorite movies mean to us?  i go with less is more. that is untill ennio moriconne poped up.    but  "story of a soldier" is so simple.   i cry everytime i hear it....... i also cry when i hear some of today's pop music ?  
 old cluster plucker,

I agree with the majority: Ennio and B.Hermann and Balamanti... But all these genius were able to make a successfull team with a Director to produce a chemical synergy :1+1= 3 ..and masterpieces: Hermann/Hitch, Balamenti/Lynch, Ennio/Sergio...
Many Ennio musics are pretty good but unadapted to  horrible movies (especially the french: verneuil...).

By the way let's open another topic: Who is the worst compositor ?
I propose Jarre for Zhivago and the impossible torture: some day Laraaaaaaa .......

Worse composer,this is difficult.I agree with you that Maurice Jarre's music ,[except for Laurence Of Arabia.]is pretty poor.I don't think much of a lot of film music you hear in films these days,even some very good composers like John Wiliams,Jerry Goldsmith and John Barry seem to have their best days behind them.I don't really like

Hans Zimmer
Mark Isham[his early film music was good but it's now so dull]
Michael Kamen[except Brazil soundtrack]
All those pop soundtracks which havecsongs which are nothing to do with the film!

Hi Sean Sean, although Iīm a great fan of Morricone myself, I must say I disagree with you saying that Morricone is the best composer of all times. Why is that? I believe you can always recognise his work in every movie, even when you didnīt know he is the man behind the scores. He is to much of himself, if you know what I mean, he is to predictible. On the other hand I donīt think of anyone else being able to compose such magnificent soundtraks as The Mission, 1900 or why not Sostiene Pereira wich happens to be one of my favorites. Anyway, have a good time Sean Sean.

                                               Farewell.
