“The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” was released in 1966 alongside the Western Film, “The Good, The Bad And The Ugly” directed by Sergio Leone. The score is composed by frequent Leone collaborator Ennio Morricone, whose distinctive original compositions, containing gunfire, whistling, and yodeling permeate the film. The main theme, resembling the howling of a coyote, is a two-note melody that is a frequent motif, and is used for the three main characters, with a different instrument used for each one: flute for Blondie , Arghilofone (Ocarina) for Angel Eyes, and human voices for Tuco.
It is widely considered as one of the greatest and most original film scores in history!!!
The album was remastered and re-released on Capitol Records in 2004, which had 10 additional musical cues from the film.
