Ennio Morricone (Composer/Conductor): The Good, The Bad & the Ugly [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Album Notes

Composer: Ennio Morricone .

A major influence on Western scores right into the nineties, Morricone's music utilizes quite a remarkable array of musical tools. There's a traditional element of Western underscore, with a brassy feel to it, but this is joined throughout by thundering percussion that includes a lot of bells, various arrangements of voices, clanging acoustic and electric guitars, and even a prepared piano. Aside from the famous title track with its Shadows influences, there's a lot here to recommend this particular score -- there are moments of intense drama and incredible beauty that are rarely heard in motion picture underscore, giving the work a classical feel. A cover of the title track provided Hugo Montenegro with a major British hit. [In 2004 Capitol released an expanded and re-mastered edition that re-integrates nine tracks that were omitted upon the album's initial release.] ~ Steven McDonald
