A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE, originally known as DUCK, YOU SUCKER, in my opinion, ranks with the most awesome film scores ever. It was my first complete collection of Morricone's music on vinyl, back in the day. The main theme is one of the most creative, melodic and beautiful pieces of music anywhere, and features all the classic Morricone trademarks, the building bed of strings, the whistled phrases, and the beautiful "wordless" vocals by the great Edda Dell'Orso. If I were forced to describe the essence of Morricone to an unfamiliar music enthusiast, I would simply have him or her listen to this theme. But, it doesn't stop there. The "Maestro" was at the peak of his first (or second) phase of genius here, as amply demonstrated in this score. There are 2-3 additional fantastic themes developed, as well, including "March of The Beggars," during which Morricone incorporates a snatch of Mozart's "A Little Night Music." There is also a suite of action cue music, which is quite breathtaking and rhythmic. This score alone makes purchase of this collection well worth it. But the other 4 scores included are fine examples of Morricone's seemingly limitless talent and creativity. I cannot tell you how often I find myself whistling or humming the main theme of DUCK, YOU SUCKER. Very essential Morricone collection. WOW!!
