Here it is. From 1975.

And rear with tracklisting



I think the selection was taken from the double RCA LP Un Film Una musica
Apparently there were 2 reissues of this LP in Holland, and in 1982, a cassette ! That must be rare id imagine.

I got mine from Woolworths too. £1.15.
Normal soundtrack LPs were £2.00 plus then.
And a compilation called Film Favourites. Also cheap at 1.50
This was 75 ish.


That's the one. I had a mate who the 'musicassette' of it in his car so it definitely reached more than soundtrack fans (unless he was a closet fan of course). But then being in every single record shop/section in the UK helps. Camden was a budget RCA division I think.

Western Themes Italian Style mentioned by soundtracksi is also sitting in my boxroom. It was my intro to Ennio so very close to my musical heart. The four films featured are GBU (first time I heard Ecstasy of Gold - can you imagine?!!), The Big Gundown, Navajo Joe and as he says, Death Rides A Horse. I spent a lifetime tracking down the latter three films and their soundtracks. Didn't get this from Woolies though. This time it was Casa Disco in Barnsley, a well regarded independent record shop that ANY music fan in the area frequented, and which had an admirable soundtrack section. I resisted the temptation to get the tv soundtrack of Hawaii Five-O all the time it was there. Weird that.

Yep, soundtracksi, Paul,
this was on the Sunset label - which also did 633, goldfinger, mag7/return7 and a few others.



Never quite understood why but on the rear of the sleeve where they did a promo of other LPs in the range, one pic was of Western themes italian style! Seemed daft advertising the LP on the back of the LP!!

There was a reissue of this, different cover, Les Jepson has it

Here is the audio cassette

That's the one , I have some of these on cassette from the old days,
Am i correct in thinking that the tracks that are blended together for Navajo joe are remixed in stereo?

I must check it out, its like the case of soundtrack to five man army mono on LP, then the cd of western collection had a stereo main title, later on the FSM release.

Correction, yes you are right, the first "edition" had a white picture of spurs n sixgun or something. 1969 apparently.

The reissue was that Sunset one above with the death rides a horse finale on front cover.
The sunset one was yellow rear sleeve




Its was from dodgy memory, ive had this verified now.


Heres the rear cover of what internet says is the Holland issue from 79.

Great I thought my memory was going, on the fistful double I could never understand why it had the two tracks missing from the Italian version of for few Dollars more?

The orig camden 1970 higher up in thread had 6 and 6 tracks each film

Then i believe there was a reissue (rca western giants 1975) that had added square dance on fistful and the 2 extra tracks Ace poker and Bells on fafdm. (So 7 and 8 tracks respectively)
Then there was another french reissue (Rca paris Impact label no date marked) with different yellow cover and pic of eastwood holding cigar on front, same lineup as the western giants LP.

There was also this american release dated 1976
Which had the 7 and 8 tracks


And a german version.
