The Best of Spaghetti Westerns

This ten disc set features 20 films, two to a disc:

No Room to Die
Lone and Angry Man

Rope and the Colt
In the Colt's Shadow

Shanghai Joe
The Return of Shanghai Joe

Charge! Dirty Dogs
Shoot Gringo Shoot!

A Bullet for a Stranger
10,000 Dollars for a Massacre

A Pistol for Ringo
The Return of Ringo

Ringo: Face of Vengeance
Blood for a Silver Dollar

Deep West
Seven Dollars on the Red

Forgotten Pistolero

A Noose is Waiting for You Trinity
A Sky Full of Stars

Not bad for £15 or so from Amazon marketplace.

I've got Seven Dollars on the Red on at the moment and it looks damn good, in the proper aspect ratio, with vibrant colours, a pretty immaculate print and with no artefacting or pixelation thus far. Hope the other films are equally impressive...

Keith, can you keep us updated on the AV quality of the other titles in the set as you watch them?

Looks like a great buy if the majority of them are OK.

Watched the two Shanghai Joe films last night. The Return of Shanghai Joe didn't look too good, but Shanghai Joe was up to the standards of the others and looked better than the version in the 20 film Mill Creek spaghettis box. So 3 out of 4 thus far.

A Bullet for a Stranger is in widescreen, but the print is somewhat dark and the dialogue a bit muffled.

Thanks for the information, Keith. I have read elsewhere, however, that almost every title is significantly cut?
