If you like Morricone, then you must have this two-album set. The sound is phenomenal, and the choice of tracks is more than I hoped for.
All of the great themes from the spaghetti westerns are there, as well as some of the more contemporary pictures that Morricone scored. Pick a Morricone-composed soundtrack, and you'll probably find it here. I figured that I would listen to a side every now and then, only to find myself listening straight-through the entire set. Morricone has got the be THE meastro for movie soundtracks.
The sound quality is absolutely first rate. I think the compilers of this album looked for the best sounding tapes they could fine. The music sounds brand new, for the most part (there's some hiss on older tune). The jangly guitars are a little more jangly than I've ever heard before. I can delineate the instruments during the tunes. Beautiful all the way. If you are looking for a Morricone ste, I highly recommend this one.B
