One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "The Sundown", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "Marcia", "The Desert", "The Strong", and "The Trio".

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Il Prefetto Di Ferro
Beat (Italy), 1977. Near Mint-
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music! Il Prefetto Di Ferro has a core sound that's very much in keeping with Morricone's approach to crime and cop films – a bit warmer and funkier at times than his horror ... LP, Vinyl record album

Citta Violenta
GDM/Cinevox (Italy), 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)

CAM/Dagored (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- (reissue)
Great stuff – a very different Morricone soundtrack, with some incredible features! The score is for a dark film about a gangster avenging the death of his sister, and the music features a chorus of wordless vocals, sparse string passages, pipe organ, and some weirdly fuzzed-out keyboards ...

Red Tent
Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good+
Kind of a mellow Morricone soundtrack – written for this weird balloon film that starred Sean Connery!

The kind of sexy Morricone soundtrack we really really love!

L'Orchestra La Voce
Warner (France), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A heavenly bit of work from Morricone! The album's a non-soundtrack – but it features singer Edda Dell'Orso interpreting some of his greatest themes of the late 60s and early 70s, in that wordless drifting mode that always made for his best soundtracks ever. There's a few instrumental tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Le Serpent (Il Serpente)
RCA (France), 1972. Near Mint-
A groovy soundtrack to a film we'd love to see – an obscure thriller that starred Henry Fonda and Yul Brynner! The style of the music runs between the two poles of work from Morricone at the time – with some cuts that are spare, quiet, and very pretty, and others that are fuller, more ...

An obscure Morricone album that was recorded for the CEM sound library label in Italy.
