Today I was watching Light the fuse... Sartana is coming and was surprised (well, not really) to find tunes based on GBU's main theme and Extasy of Gold. Did Morricone know about this procedure from his partner? I think he did.
Also, as I am watching the movie dubbed in english, I wonder where they took such amateurs to give the voices, which  are also badly paired to the characters to boot.

I remember rumours 'pre-internet days' that Nicolai was a ghost writing sudo name for Ennio. There is still some truth in that on the basis of Ennio was charitable with his arrangments in the early days for his conducter part-time composer.

That of Nicolai being an alias for Ennio is an hypothesis which  had come to my mind and it may be true. But, consequentially we'd have also to admit that Morricone was smart  to recognize and sign as Nicolai the bulk of his lesser work.

Sounds like an alias. Maybe Morricone will confess on his deathbed.

Bruno Nicolai does indeed exist and is not just some alias Ennio cooked up to hide behind. Bruno has done the bulk of the musical work in the Sartana series and many many many other spaghetti westerns. Ennio did use Nicolai's name as an  alias ONCE for the film "Run Man Run" due to some contract problems (something or other).

As for similarities between "Light The Fuse...Sartana is coming!" and GBU...I hear none. Nicolai's better Sartana soundtrack was in "Have a good funeral my friend...Sartana will pay!"

Light The Fuse and Have A Good Funeral are both excellent very cool scores but i agree the latter has the edge.Nicolai has also provided brilliant scores in both Adios Sabata and They Call Him Cemetery.
I read at some point in the late sixties that Morricone and Nicolai had a major fall out and since have only collaborated twice-one of them the Moses series but i can't remember the other Roll Eyes

It's a sad, sad thought. But it will happen someday.

Those two were working together, according to Sergio Sollima in the interview included in the "Run Man Run" DVD.
