AllMusic Review by

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.
