Quartet Records, in collaboration with GDM and Universal Music Publishing Italia, presents a revised, remastered edition of two iconic western scores by Ennio Morricone for the for the classic Ringo diptych, directed by Duccio Tessari in 1965 and starring Giuliano Gemma. This 2-CD deluxe edition brings together all the previously released material from both Ringo movies with programs that were originally put together for RCA and GDM Music.

Disc 1 contains the stereo program of both Ringo movies, with the cues selected by Morricone for the original RCA release. We have also included the very rare 1965 album originally entitled “La Storia, I Dialoghi, Le Canzoni di Il Ritorno Di Ringo.” This soundtrack was a dialogue/music hybrid that featured Morricone’s music interspersed with newly recorded narration and even included sound effects to retell the whole story in about half an hour. This album also notably includes some short cues that can only be heard in that program.

Also included is a clean take of “L’incontro con la figlia” Although originally composed for his rejected score for The Bible, and later used in The Secret Of The Sahara, Morricone also used this cue in Il Ritorno Di Ringo, and it even appeared on the 1965 dialog album.

Disc 2 includes the first version released by GDM on CD in 2004 with cues once again selected by the composer, which was entirely in mono. It is interesting because some takes are different from the previous stereo version, as well as the fact that the program was expanded.

Restored and mastered by Chris Malone and supervised by Claudio Fuiano, the richly illustrated 16-page booklet contains in-depth liner notes by the much-missed Gergely Hubai discussing the film and the score.
