Hi Addison, and good question. Firstly regarding the trilogy laserdisc box set, I would suggest Ebay, as this format is now finished (apart from collectors) sets like this can often be picked up at a very good price. Let me know how you got on?

The Second part of your question is a good point. As far as I recall, I do not think there was ever a U.S. release soundtrack for FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, actually I don't think there was a dedicated album released anywhere at the time of its release, unlike A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS. What was released at the time was an Album that featured the full U.S. artwork and called FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE AND OTHER MOVIE THEMES and was released by United Artists in 1967 (United Artists UAS 6608)
The LP Featured:
1. For A Few Dollars More (02:57)

2. Sixty Seconds To What (02:01)

3. The Vice Of Killing (02:26)

with a total running time of 30.55
This album featured the FAFDM tracks but these were by Leroy Holmes and his Orchestra (who were great in their own way), but were no Morricone. These FAFDM tracks by Morricone, began to emerge in various forms on a worldwide basis in the 1970's when they were doubled up with the music of Fistful of Dollars. Later of course a dedicated CD was released of the full FAFDM soundtrack.
I will post the Leroy Holmes LP on the main page now.
Thanks for your question

Thanks you very much TCEA,
Your info has led me to the conclusion that the only way the get the full soundtrack of FAFDM is with the CD Release.

So that leads me to assume the earliest record with songs from FAFDM that are composed by Ennio would be from the 1970 Combo FOD and FAFDM on RCA.

Thank you very much for the help with this, and I know where to go now if I EVER need something to do with the awesome Clint Eastwood.
You have the MOST passion for this and it really shows with your site.

Thanks with much gratitude,
Addison
