In which of the Leone`s films, by your opinion, Morricone did the best music score, and what about it did you like the most?

Once Upon A Time In the West has my most favorite overall mix of music. I recently went to Monument Valley and played the music as we drove to the different filming locations. Wow, I will never forget that feeling. I have an original soundtrack from Europe which has additional tracks not heard on the American CD's. I was lucky to find it at a Tower Records in Phoenix before they went broke.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is second taking me back to my days of younger years.

As someone who purchased his first soundtrack albums in 1968 (GBU 1st, then Return of the Seven) and listens primarily to soundtrack albums in my truck: in my opinion GBU has the best use of music in ANY film, ever.  No, not just the Ecstacy of Gold, the final shootout, "Father Ramirez", etc, the film just uses scoring better than anything else ever. 


Beautifuly said!

I am not going to tell you that  the music in every film Morricone is associated with is beautiful Cinema Paradiso is beautful as well as all the Leone films but the one that still gives me the chills is Ecstacy of Gold.  It is absolutely breath taking..

I agree, have you seen the dvd performance? It will add to the chills.

And when Wallace beats Tuco in prison camp, that music is very sad too...

Yes. But when you see in which scenes it is played: when Wallace beating Tuco, when soldiers coming into the prisson camp, when Blondie and Tuco talks with the Union captain..., practicaly every tragic scene in the movie is "covered" with that tune... It gets me sad...

I have been so wrapped up with Once Upon a Time in the West that I had forgotten how much I enjoy the music from GBU. So I went out and bought a new soundtrack CD to keep in my car. Much to my surprise and excitement, I found a 24bit remastered CD with 11 new bonus tracks. It is absolutely the greatest with Padre Rameriz being my favorite.
Having the old version I never thought to see if a newer version had been made.

I purchased this a Borders and it is clearly marked "11 new bonus tracks."

I purchase two more the next day, one for home and one for my home in Arizona.
Never to be without.

Maybe you should change your name to "Rip" as in Van Winkle. LOL!

Enjoy- it's a great purchase.
