This review is from: For A Few Dollars More (Morricone) (Audio CD)
The second (and least played) of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti trilogy Ennio Morricone steps up the tempo. I bought this as a vinyl album in 1968.
Morricone is in fine form here and fans won't be disappointed. My own favourite track. being 'Adios Colonello' which has rather sad overtones of the track 'Sixty Seconds To What'? as we remember the last scene in the movie - Colonel Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef) riding off into the sunset having dispatched the baddies along with his fellow bounty hunter Clint Eastwood.
My only gripe with this album is that it is too short. If you are a die hard collector of Morricone's work and wish to collect them separately and pay exhorbitant prices to obtain it, then so be it. But the album is excellent.
A final note: Morricone's 'A Fistful Of Sounds' contains three complete soundtracks, 'A Fistful Of Dollars', 'For A Few Dollars More' and 'Once Upon A Time In The West' and at a more reasonable price and I'm sure would be available through Amazon...good luck whatever you decide.

Quite Right Alex, nobody on this planet should pay such extortionist prices for any CD. This has been my arguement all along. Furthermore this album contains 8 tracks (!). This would be the original vinyl release converted to CD. Word has reached my ear that Morricone has released an extended version of this soundtrack, with no less than 20 tracks...and I betcha not as expensive! ....well spotted
