  • Nice little 4 CD Dimtri Tiomkin CD with some rare John Wayne tracks.

    It is a Silvo Screen City of Prague Orchestra

    The highlights are War Wagon and The High & Mighty with music arrangements on CD 1 & 2 and vocal arrangement on CD 4

    The Alamo and and Rio Bravo are also great plus Gunfight at OK Corral and Jimmy Stewart movie Night Passage.

    There is also a range of epic themes from Fall of the Roman Empire and Land of the Pharoahs plus some Hitchcock themes.

  • Thank Chester

    I have the Red River CD. Different cover from one shown. I wasnt sure about it the first time I listened to CD but I grew to love it. Fascinating to see the variations of theme.

    I see Silva Screen have Quiet man CD at £11.95


  • Hi Jim and Mike

    The one illustrated is the same as the one have. its interesting reading the various comments particularly about the singing. All in all though I think this is a very good CD.
    On a par with the Searchers How The West Was Won and Red River I would go for How The West Was Won Red River and The Searchers.

    If I were to expand two very good CD's that would stand with the other three are The films of Elmer Bernstein Volume 1 The Comancheros and True Grit, and Volume 2 The Shootist, Big Jake, Cahill United States Marshall.

    Having played Stagecoach and Fort Apache I wasn't particularly impressed with Stagecoach reasonably happy with Fort Apache. Perhaps I expected more.

  • Hi Arthur

    Those soundtracks were the first two I bought as LPs I think from DL Cutts and being the first soundtrack records I had I thought they were great

    Funny thing when I bought them as CDs I expected to get beter reproduction but thought they sound a little dull particularly on Shootist and Cahill so much so that I now prefer other options

    True Grit, Commancheros and Big Jake I have as complete OST and I prefer the Shootist and Cahill selections on new True Grit CD.

    It proberably because they are new selections and are digital and I dont pump the volume like I have to on the Elmer Bernstein CDs.


  • Howdy All,
    I received the new True Grit soundtrack yesterday, and after listening to it I have to say that I am very pleased. I also liked the "additional" tracks of The Shootist, Big Jake, and Cahill. They were done as concert suites, and are very nice. I heartily recommend this CD to anyone who has not heard it.

  • I didn't know how merging the thread about John Wayne's Music into this thread would affect the flow of conversation, so thought it better to just share the link to another interesting discussion about the music from JW's films. Plenty of food for thought and "grist for the mill."
