I had the ost on cassette but lost it during a move years ago. It's been nearly twenty years since I watched the movie and the score which was once ingrained in my brain seems like a nostalgic distant memory. Only wish I was less skint than I am at the moment because I feel like getting reacquainted with both.

Dangit! Something else I can't afford right now. Once again, I hope this lasts until after the first of the year.

Definitely one of those scores that no one does like this anymore.

From the LLL email

Note that LLL will not have their stock of Home Alone 2 and The Untouchables in until Thursday night / Friday morning, so if you order either of those along with Die Hard 3 or the Trek box (both of which they already have in stock), your entire order won't ship until Friday. So if you want Die Hard 3 or the Trek Box right away, order them separately from Home Alone 2 and/or The Untouchables.

I'm so glad this is complete. I ordered this. Their's one piece of music missing the opera scene with Pagliacci. It can easily be purchased from itunes. Dreamlist Vol.3 album Track 21 it's the recording the used for the film.

I think that here in Europe at least, he's more known amongst the average people than Williams (they probably remember Williams' melodies more, but I think if you asked them to name just one film composer, Morricone would be the one they'd come up with more often than Williams. Hey, let's carry out a study if it's true!)

Known, yes. Mostly for his Leone and 70s stuff though I'd say. And he's written such a shitload of scores that selling out 3,500 units in a not so long time is quite an achievement for a score that's not among his popular classics. At least I never thought of Untouchables being one of those. Although he does include it in his current concert programme - but then he also includes several scores I'd never even heard of.

It is but JW fans don't want it to be true, i have the bloody scars from the battle with KM and Joey to prove it.

It also adds to the fact that people over here almost equal Williams with vacuous Hollywood glitz. Not knowing a great deal about his music, obviously. I played some more obscure things to one of such people and he couldn't believe it was that "cheap manipulative jolly movie tune" guy. They were even more perplexed when I pksyed concert pieces. And that wad only first violin concerto which is as accessible as his music goes.

I guess, my point here is that people do know his name. But that's not always in a good way.

Of course but here in Argentina more people know those than Star Wars and Superman. I think there's something about Morricone's european sensibilities than connects more with people here than with they probably associate with a more North American sound.

This 2-CD expansion is on my wishlist, but it's still OOP I think?

Last summer, MV on FSM said it could be back in LLL's catalog when I asked him about.

 

EDIT: found it.

Dear MV, is there any chance for Morricone’s „The Untouchables” 2CDs re-release ?

Yes
