Thank you, ut-re-mi.

Unfortunately information surrounding these four Morricone versions is inadequate and contradictory.
For example, the original 1952/53 versions are frequently attributed to Morricone, while the evidence shows that the Morricone versions are from 1962/64.
I have updated my comments about these four tracks a bit. link / link / link / link
