Can someone airbrush that cover to what is SHOULD have said?




Now we're talking. When Mr. Marshall said there had never been an LP, I thought to myself, "What?!? I have it!" This is what I was thinking of. It never occurred to me that it was not Morricone.

Sweet!

Now how about the back using UA fonts and layouts?
And my track list.

Nice but..

can you remove the * and the additional info. Just track titles is best (or you can retain running time").
LPs of that era wouldn't have such info.


Thanks!

I remember buying that lp and discovering ,to my horror , that it wasn't the OST!

The LP actually replicates art from FISTFUL - which wasn't accurate to the way Clint looked in the first place!

I'm glad we've modified these covers, because even the typeface was looking like 60s Gerry Anderson (Captain Scarlet/UFO?) at one point. Hey, I love all this stuff but there are some crossovers none of us want.

As for LeRoy Homes... just why?

I'm so glad I have the GDM/Lionel Woodman CD (could be worth a few bob by now). On some of the original track names, it states that they're probably from the DVD, but they sound stereo when listening on headphones, & the original cues sound so vital & in your face, they make the album re-recording sound tame in comparison.

My excuse for buying the Leroy Holmes album was this. I'd just bought The Big Gundown and on the rear sleeve it said,"also available For A Few Dollars More. So like a fool I ordered a copy there and then and had it delivered to my home, it was only when I'd played it that I realised my error.

I kept it because there was nothing else.

That notation didn't appear on the U.S. release of THE BIG GUNDOWN album, so we Americans don't have the same excuse. But at least United Artists didn't try to mislead. The FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE album was not labeled an "Original Soundtrack", as was the album for TGTBATU touted right next to it, and it was indicated as being conducted by Leroy Holmes. Still, your (and all of our) confusion was justified.

If UA had said it was a Ferrante and Teicher album, we would have been suitably warned off. Perhaps even if it had been Al Caiola. But Leroy Holmes was a tougher decision. Could somehow they have gotten him to conduct Morricone's actual music for the soundtrack? Nope. UA would pull the same stunt again the next year on Alex North's THE DEVIL'S BRIGADE.

What confused me was, a friend had been to see the film and informed me that although Morricone wrote the music, he didn't conduct it, and he couldn't remember the conductors name.

So when I saw it advertised, I, wrongly assumed that Leroy Holmes conducted the music in the film, if I hadn't been so excited at seeing it was available, I might have realised it didn't say that it was the original soundtrack.

The moral is, to read announcements carefully.

Paul, the last track is a reprise of the Main Title, just the same as it was in the film, I didn't include the song in that listing.

If you like you can e-mail me, johnrimmer.cd@gmail.com

I'd enjoy having a chat with another fan of this great score.


Your CD is NOT complete!

You left out all the ' twangs' and ' doot- doota- doot doots'.

So, it's EXPANDED, NOT complete!

Just noticed a.mistake I made:

D'oh!#######

Sorry Bill, it was The Colonel and The Man With No Name watching Indio's gang, who were watching the guards patrolling the Bank of El Paso. Hence the title, Watcher Watched.

It's as complete as GDM's The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.

Ok, For A Few Dollars More is an obsession, it’s the soundtrack I’ve wanted since 1968, I must have spent a fortune attempting to obtain it over the years. I’ve no idea how many copies I bought, so I made a list.

For A Few Dollars More – Leroy Holmes, The Dollar Trilogy – Hugo Montenegro, The Dollar Trilogy – Hollywood Sound Orchestra, Fistful of Dollars / For A Few Dollars More – Ennio Morricone, Fistful of Dollars / For A Few Dollars More – Ennio Morricone -French Version, Fistful of Dollars / For A Few Dollars More – Ennio Morricone - Italian Version, Fistful of Dollars / For A Few Dollars More – Ennio Morricone - Japanese Version, Fistful Of Dollars / For a Few Dollars More / Once Upon a Time in The West – Ennio Morricone - UK Version, Legendary Italian Westerns – Ennio Morricone, For A Few Dollars More – Ennio Morricone - GDM Release, The Dollar Trilogy – Ennio Morricone - Italian Release, The Complete Dollars Trilogy – Solisti e Orchestra del Cinema Italiano, and finally The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / For A Few Dollars More – Ennio Morricone - Japanese Release.

Yep, I can honestly say the search for this soundtrack has become an obsession.

The important thing is, that the wife never sees this list and works out how much I've spent over the years in pursuit of this score.

Should any of our labels release it tomorrow, I'd buy it again, I should probably be locked up.

Nope.

It's the scene where Clint and Lee are spying out their windows with scopes, and see each other.
