"Spaghetti Westerns" (Classic Italian Soundtracks) Volumes 1-3

Twilightzone! is one of my favorite music blogs because we have similar tastes and they come up with the goodies. Stuff I have old vinyls of, stuff I have on ancient homemade cassettes, stuff I've been looking for, and new-to-me cool stuff that enlightens or makes me laugh. An example of of several facets are these Italian Spaghetti Western volumes I'm re-posting and sharing today. Thanks Twilight Zone!

"Spaghetti Westerns" (Classic Italian Soundtracks) Vol. 1 - 1995

"Hi Ryp, Just uploaded this fantastic compilation of Spaghetti Westerns for you. I've uploaded Volumes 1, 2 and 3. There are other volumes out there so I'm kind of hoping that someone out there has this and wouldn't mind uploading it! Cheers" - Russ


Composed and conducted by Ennio Morricone, Pino Donaggio, Riz Ortolani, and others. Vocals by Katina Ranieri. Among the 28 films represented are "Duck You Sucker," "A Fist Goes West," "Wanted Johnny Texas," "Night of the Snakes."
I have a very extensive music collection, and was looking for something missing: that beautiful but haunted and lonely sound of Ennio Morricone's music: spaghetti westerns!
I was simply looking for all the soundtracks from those countless obscure Italian Westerns that where made in the 60s and 70s. But how to find them, or worse, the titles?
This collection, as well as Part 2, 3, and 4, hosts them probably all. It also has an extensive booklet with very good info on the music, as well as the movies that made them, or is it the other way around? This set is simply the best Italian Western music money can buy, and should be famous and sold-out! I recommend to buy all 4 sets! - By Martijn13Maart1970 (Husavik Iceland)

"Spaghetti Westerns" (Classic Italian Soundtracks) Vol. 2 - 1995


While the first album contained lots and lots of great tracks, coupled with some merely pretty good ones, this album has almost only really great ones! There is hardly a single "pretty good" track here! This continues the tradition of a few better known tracks, such as the theme to Django and the Hellbenders, as well as plenty of lesser known film scores, in U.S.
For those of you keeping score, this is my second purchase in an attempt to locate music from Red Dead Revolver; I am happy to say that music from "A Man Called King" and "Death on High Hill" fit that bill.
This is a needed item for any kind of Spaghetti Western Music Collector. Any kind of fan of the Italian film genre will apreciate this album. This contains all the components for a quintessential spaghetti western CD: songs with the high, hauntingly beautiful backgrounds, clumsily translated lyrics, and of course, the inescapable Ennio Morricone. And, at the reasonable price, how could you resist? - By Colin "The Ninja Guy" (LA, CA)

"Spaghetti Westerns" (Classic Italian Soundtracks) Vol. 3


This addition to DRG's Classic Italian Soundtracks series captures spaghetti Westerns at their eeriest and funniest. Ennio Morricone is predominant, of course, with tracks to such films as A Pistol for Ringo and Blood and Guns, and vocal themes to The Return of Ringo and Death Rides a Horse. A rarely heard voice-free version of "My Name Is Nobody" has the virtue of sounding like a soda pop commercial. Other pasta-and-pistols maestros such as Piero Piccioni ("I Don't Forget... I Kill"), Carlo Savina ("The Two Ringos from Texas"), and Luis Bacalov ("Gold of the Proud Ones") make an impressive showing, though there are some dull moments. In contrast to our domesticated Tiomkin-style Hollywood clichés, these eccentric to melancholy flourishes represent fantasies of the American West nurtured by a pastry-crazed European imagination. - Joseph Lanza
