It's great that that footage was restored, but I honestly didn't feel any of it added to the film. The "shorter" version being the superior cut, imo.

And yes, I too found the older voices of Eastwood and Wallach to be distracting, but at least they didn't have to call Anthony Hopkins in to imitate either of those two gentlemen. ;)
It's not just the new dubbing that I dislike in the longer cut: it's the new foley track. The new gunshots, etc, really irritate me: to my ears, they're nothing like those in the original sound mix. The same goes for the BD releases of FISTFUL... and FOR A FEW... (Thankfully, I've got the Italian BD of FISTFUL with the original mono mix, and the German Paramount DVD release of FOR A FEW...)

Are either of those releases English friendly?

Yep, they're both English-friendly.

I must be the only person who prefers the extra footage added.

Sure the dubbing is off-putting but the story flows better with it.

Rumour is that there could be a Criterion release somewhere in the future.
