RR: The most famous of all the Italian soundtrack composers is Ennio Morricone - and he is the undisputed king of the genre. But there were many other great and legendary maestros who scored their share of westerns. This compilation presents transcendent, brilliant and challenging tracks from the likes of: Bruno Nicolai, Gianni Ferrio, Francesco De Masi, Marcello Giombini, Luis Bacalov, Stelvio Cipriani, Alessandro Alessandroni, Nora Orlandi, Nico Fidenco, Piero Umiliani, and many others. Named for the iconic Ennio Morricone composition, The Ecstasy of Gold: 23 Killer Bullets from the Spaghetti West, Vol. 1 is the first installment in a five-volume set of some of the grooviest deep cuts to come from the European Western movie craze of the '60s and '70s. Filled with plenty of reverb-drenched guitars, wailing horns, and plaintive vocals, this collection is a must-listen for fans of the glorious melodrama of spaghetti Western scores.
