Quote
PLEASE NOTE: This item is expected to be released in February and is only available for PRE-ORDER at this time. Orders containing preordered items are not shipped until all items are in stock. If you wish to receive other items sooner than this one, we recommend placing a separate order.
GDM Music is proud to announce the special edition CD reissue of "A Fistful of Dollars" with the famous score by Ennio Morricone for the classic movie directed by Sergio Leone in 1964. This CD edition was prepared in close cooperation with Ennio Morricone who authorized 10 inedit tracks coming from the original 1964 mono session tapes. Through an appropriate digital remastering and a carefull restoration session we could remove all the original sound defects and anomalies like the correction of big defects still existing on the two channels since the original recording session. This CD features the music chronologically sequenced as it appears in the movie (alternating the stereo mixes to the newly discovered mono mixes). Special edition in clickpak + 12 pages colour booklet.

Hi mary mary.  Thanks for posting, it IS interesting!  The reason I didn't post immediately was that I get rather confused by all the different Morricone soundtrack editions, and I need to take a while to work out what's genuinely new and different, and what are the best CDs to get.

From the description you give it sounds like a good addition to the collection, especially the previously unreleased tracks. O0

Cheers. :)

Positive review in Music from the Movies.

Since its release in 1963/64, A Fistful Of Dollars has remained one of the most popular westerns in cinema history. The score is, by Morricone standards, rather basic; a simple theme, whistled, which builds as the composer introduces more instruments. The remainder of the score is also rather sparse; seemingly Morricone’s intention was to match the movie’s rather deserted location and the solitary anti-hero played by Clint Eastwood.

There are no big orchestral set pieces here, although the chase sequence themes do come close. Morricone’s soundtrack must have been something of a shock to audiences, after all before A Fistful Of Dollars western film music was big and sprawling, Coplandesque in its make up and grand in its overall sound. Whistling had featured in many a western movie before A Fistful Of Dollars, but in the hands of Morricone it became the signature for the main character and an integral part of the whole filmmaking process. A trill or part of the whistle was heard on screen as the main character was seen or just before he came into shot, so the audience knew that he was about to be seen. Morricone utilised this type of scoring in the films sequels to an even greater effect, but A Fistful Of Dollars set in motion a kind of musical blueprint that is still copied and mimicked to this day.

This GDM release is a special edition containing many cues that did not appear on any of the previous issues. New cues include the powerful music Morricone utilised for the scene after the massacre of the soldiers at the river, ‘Ramon’, together with an alternate version of the trumpet theme, ‘Per Un Pugno Di Dollari’, where the part of the trumpet is performed by woodwind.

The sound quality is exquisite and GDM includes wonderfully colourful artwork on the cover and a booklet with 10 stills from the movie and a centre page spread of numerous posters from the movie. This is an essential purchase. Highly recommended.
