I've just obtained Morricones comprehensive(i hope) SW Filmography of soundtracks he has provided which i hope may provide a useful and accessable resource.I intend to mark each title with a number of stars(*) to indicate the quality of each Morricone soundtrack following the results of  of a series of polls which i intend to conduct very soon.
I have obviously left off the excellent soundtracks for the non-sw's Guns For San Sebastian and Two mules For Sister Sarah!

As suggested in the question Morricones score was totally unique and groundbreaking with  the  combination of whistling,acoustic guitar,chanting,whiplashes,gunshots and bells.However like Leones westerns,Morricone was to get better and better as time went on but theres no way i think you can say this is anything less than very good!!
This poll will run for 7 days before i apply the result to the new Morricone Filmography guide.

I voted it very good, I love the score but Morricone has said he does not.

He doesn'y love it (he confirmed this in a recent interview can't find the link to and anyway is in italian).   He says that both he and Leone didn't like their work in FOD (this I had already read in Frayling's biography). In the same interview he says he doesn't like to have his name associated with SW. I don't know whether he's serious or not (I met him personally only once and interviewed him on a totally futile subject. Thank God the intervied never saw the light of day) and I have the impression that he always means what he says. Still I would like him to disprove me when I say I can't imagine a better degeullo for the final confrontation. I know that he could have done this (i.e. disprove me) in the '60's. I very much doubt he could do that now. That scene (together with the first shooting) always gives me goosebumps when I watch it and 50% of the  merit goes to the musician. So, as said by Banjo, he doesn't get top score because of what he did afterwards (thank God!). But for everybody who lived these strange sounds when they first came on the air,  the sensation of something out of the beaten path conveyed by the entire soundtrack can never be escaped.

Sorry guys i cancelled the original 2nd poll having realised the futility of trying to rate a movie virtually no-one of us,including myself has seen!However i will revisit Gunfight At Red Sands once a few of us including myself have seen it!
FAFDM was the first movie where Morricone provided a different musical motiff  for each of the main protagonists,Manco,Mortimer and Indio.The title theme was better than FOD with that wondeful jews harp intro and the "Vice of Killing" theme including that pocket watch is just so brilliantly sublime and moving both in the ruined church showdown and the final showdown between Mortimer and Indio.Absolutely fantastic!!!
The poll closes on 28th December 2005.

  I said the FAFDM score is 'essential.'  This movie was the one where Morricone really seemed to put things together music-wise, no disrespect to FOD.  The main reason I voted this essential was because of the musical pocket watch theme.

  The way Morricone integrates the theme into the showdown, as well as Manco's entrance before the duel with Mortimer and Indio, is one of, if not the best, moments in the movie.  Everytime Manco enters holding the watch and the Henry rifle, I get chills, much the same way Mortimer and Indio do.

  Overall, the score ranks right behind GBU and OUATITW as Morricone's best.  And its a close third too.

  It ranks only

This film,probably my all-time favourite movie has unquestionably the most recognisable sw tune even to non-western fans that is the briliant title theme.This as well as the wonderful Ectasy of Gold,the build up of the flamenco-tinged bolero for the graveyard duel,the rolling piano theme of Blondy crawling in the desert and the extremely moving theme when Angel Eyes visits the ruined fort makes for one hell of a listening experience on my music compact disc of GBU!
The poll closes on the 29th December with the result being applied to Morricones SW filmography thread.

Guns For San Sebastian should be in the sw list? It's French / Mexican / Italian co-production according to IMDB and Fatman's spaghetti/eurowestern site.

I would have to say essential because of if nothing else as soon as that electric guitar kicks in ,as Harmonica and Frank go fac to face- the start of Harmonica's Theme-no matter how many times i watch this it sets off my spine-tingling!!!

Fatman also includes Carry On Cowboy on the same list, would you call this a sw?
I love Guns For San Sebastian including Morricones score but wherever you look in books and websites they generally refer to this as a USA western especially as it was filmed in Mexico.It would definately suit me if it was a sw because i could add one to my sw collection figure.
But then again Corbucci's What Am I Doing In The Middle Of A Revolution? was also filmed in Mexico i found out only in the last week-all these dreaded grey areas!!!!- so seeing as its Xmas,and because  i like the movie and soundtrack i'll slot it in when i update the guide to include some ratings!
Does anyone claim 2 Mules For Sister Sarah to be a sw?

Just found a discussion about this movie on another thread www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=1809.0 and the consensus is that its more a Euro western than a SW!
But i'll keep to my word Sundance.
