This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.

The whistling trill that opens the main theme to THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY is so familiar as to be a cultural touchstone. Even an abbreviated sound byte of the theme is enough to conjure images of desolate desert plains, rolling tumbleweeds, and a cowboy-booted figure standing ominously in the distance. These images come from Sergio Leone's "spaghetti" Westerns (so called because they were shot in Italy), while the sounds--created to aid Leone's existential narratives--are the work of the legendary Ennio Morricone.

Along with Bernard Herrmann and Nino Rota, Morricone is one of the most successful, accomplished, and well-known film composers of the 20th century. Like much of his work, the soundtrack to THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY utilizes unconventional instrumentation. Peculiar vocal calls, clanging auxiliary percussion, and electric guitars (which often employ a Dick Dale-like surf twang) trade off with a full complement of strings. The music is startlingly eclectic, moving from folk melodies to avant-garde dissonance to plaintive ballads to delicate ambience. Although the range of his career output is formidable, Morricone is perhaps best known for the soundtrack to this allegory of Civil War lawlessness, and it remains one of his finest achievements.

hot, ordered, tahnks!

For me one of the best soundtracks ever produced

Awesome deal. I bought this some 15 or so years back and even then it was £20.

+1 absolutely one of the best soundtracks made. Makes the hairs on the back of your neck tingle

Is Gabriel's oboe not on this?
Its one of my favourite pieces of music, perhaps it goes by another name?

The Ecstasy Of Gold gives me goosebumps, every time.

I'm pretty sure that was from the movie The Mission and not The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.

Good deal, though i'm almost tempted not to order simply because once the tunes get in your head you'll be whistling them for days, much to everyone's annoyance.

I was **** up at a party and singing along to Ecstasy of Gold me thinking I was singing like that woman but the next day when I'm sober and somebody showed me the footage I just sound like some six year old girl screaming after she's fallen and skinned her knee.

Can't resist.........I don't mind whistling...I do for my supper......

Those of you enjoying this fantastic composer, I strongly suggest you check out the music used in the Kill Bill films.. absolute class - L Arena and also 'the demise of barbara and the return of Joe' are truely lovely pieces of music. Ennio is just a modern genius.

Seems to be "dispatched within 3-4 weeks". However MP3 version can be bought for same price.

Great piece of music but it would only remind me of a funeral I went to.
The music played was from the good the bad and the ugly and the great escape theme was played at the end.
