On to the highlights:- The title theme is a perfect opener, simmering with a melodic, minimal string section and trademark female warble. "Poverty" is an Italian style classic. "Deborah's Theme" serves to enlarge the lump in the throat, and "Cockeye's Theme" is simply a masterpiece.
The winner for me, though, is the breezy "Amapola 2", a lazy swinging number with endearing clarinet. Every one is a winner, however, with some fine variations on the themes.
I cannot recommend this CD enough,so...you know what to do.
Morricone composed this music already in the mid seventies and there is again a beautiful voice of Edda del Orso on a few tracks.
Ennio Morricone is best known for his Spaghetti Western soundtracks but it's a shame that peole don't know how much great and different kinds of music he has composed. And this soundtrack is only a one very good exmple of his talent.
However, being an avowed nut for this wonderful film and Morricone's peerless score it's been nagging at me that many great themes from the movie are not available on any of the official Soundtrack releases eg. GOD BLESS AMERICA by Kate Smith, Morricone's lovely Strings version of the Beatles YESTERDAY, Pradelli's version of LA GAZZA LADRA, and 2 nice versions of the AMAPOLA & SPEAKEASY tracks (which feature in the film but not the OST) to name a few.
I put in some hard work last night using the 2003 220 min DVD.Read more ›
However, it has an unfortunate flaw. On track 5, at about 45 seconds in, the music is shattered momentarily by a sudden noise that sounds like a skip, and it is very unpleasant. This seems to be a mass-produced problem originating from the master copy, as I have tried three copies of this CD in different stores, and all have the same glitch. I would wait a bit and see if the record company realise this and change it.
This is beautiful 5 star quality music, but I've only given it 4 because of the unprofessional mistake in track 5.
If you are really desparate to get this music, and think you can tolerate this glitch (and I would advise trying track 5 out in the shop), then by all means go for it. If you want a really pure piece of memorabilia, then wait a while to see if this problem is rectified.
