Ennio Morricone A Fistful of Dollars Soundtrack 45rpm 10" Vinyl (Black Vinyl)
Classic Spaghetti Western Soundtrack On 45rpm 10" Vinyl!
Includes Mini Poster!
The year is 1964. Almost out of nowhere, the little-known and un-regarded
director Sergio Leone transposes a film by Akira Kurosawa into a western key,
and by putting together all the right pieces, adding a bit of intuition, 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 by 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 one of Sergio Leone's subsequent works "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 10" x 10" mini poster attached.
