ENNIO MORRICONE

purple 10" 45rpm lp + poster

The Year is 1964 and Almost out of nowhere, the little-known and un-regarded director Sergio Leone transposes a film by Akira Kurosawa into a western style.

by putting together all the right pieces, adding a bit of intuition, he lays down new rules for the 'spaghetti western' genre, giving way to an endless series of imitations. "A Fistful of Dollars" would not have had the same impact without the inimitable music written of Ennio Morricone, who had curiously been an old elementary school classmate of Leone. The main soundtrack themes were chosen from two arrangements that Morricone had already drafted two years earlier; once he removed the lyrics and added the unmistakable whistle of Alessandro Alessandroni, the spaghetti-sound was finally complete. The film was an incredible success, and projected Leone, Morricone and in particular the actor Clint Eastwood into the Olympus of the Great. The soundtrack was released for the first time the following year (1965), along with the one of Sergio Leone's subsequent work "For a Few Dollars More". This new edition sees the original seven tracks of the score in a completely new layout. The format is a 10" 45rpm LP, with a 26x26cm mini poster attached. First 500 copies are pressed on purple vinyl.
