Gunslingers, drifters, outlaws… We’ve got three ace-high Ennio Morricone spaghetti western soundtracks out this week from our friends at CineVox Records. Bonus: each LP comes with an inlay poster!
One of the most influential films in the spaghetti western genre, A Fistful of Dollars (1964) was the breakout film for director Sergio Leone and catapulted Clint Eastwood to fame in Italy. With the unmistakable whistle of Alessandro Alessandroni over ominous Spanish guitar, Morricone crystallizes the ever-cool spaghetti western sound and transforms the visuals of the prairie into music.
This classic 1974 Italian crime film is unapologetically violent and Morricone’s score is obsessive and pulsating.
Grand and at times romantic, Morricone’s score to this 1968 Leone film, features his orchestra, his choir, The Whistler, and the addition of female singer Edda Dell’Orso.
You can order these and other Morricone scores through our online shop.
