I have a question about the original soundtracks of the GBU that you can find in any store. When I listen to main team it sounds much softer and tempered than in the movie. When I was a kid I remembered to have heard an LP which did contain the original version. Does anybody know where to get it? Or does anyone has info about it?

Help grately appreciated!

There is a German CD original soundtrack from GDM, released in 2001, with 21 tracks compared to 11 on the U.S. soundtrack available since the 1960s.  I got mine about 2001, along with extended Once/West Cd from Italy.  Try Amazon, CD now, http://music.realbuy.ws/B00005EF9Y.html, http://entertainment.msn.com/Album/?album=618228

Long before I saw any of Leone's films (I started watching them in college during the mid-90s), my parents found an LP of the music from the first three films. But it wasn't the original music...it was all-new arrangements by Hugo Montenegro.

It was a fun listen, but after seeing the films, I was surprised how much was changed. Hugo's work was more of a "popular music" flavor...in fact, his rendition of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" was released as a single. Now, let me clarify what I mean by "popular music": it was still an orchestra (Mr. Montegro's own, for that matter), but the music was presented as self-contained songs...and often with a great beat. Wink

It's still a great album to listen to for nostalgia's sake, but in the end I prefer Ennio Morricone's originals.

Thanks for that advice.

But before I check out that "Prague Philharmonic" version...is that "whew good" or "whew bad"?  Wink

In June 1968 we went to see GBU 9never having heard of a spaghetti) because
(1) we liked westerns
(2) we knew of Clint Eastwood from Rawhide
(3) we heard Montenegro version of GBU on the radio

Montenegro GBU was actually number two most popular song in June 1968, behind Simon & Garfunkel "Mrs. Robinson".
