Posts from Colorado Bob in thread „Duke's Movie Soundtracks- Past Discussion (Archive)“

    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.

    Howdy All,
    So far, I think I have just about all of the John Wayne soundtracks (thank you again Arthur, I am eternally indebted to you). The ones I am missing and cannot seem to find (but I'm still looking) are:
    Big Jake
    Chisum
    The High and the Mighty
    The Sands of Iwo Jima
    The Barbarian and the Geisha
    In Harm's Way
    True Grit (the new one, not the old one)


    I do have some of the music from some of these films on compilation CD's, and although they're good and enjoyable to listen to, I try to find "complete" soundtracks that feature just the music from the particular film. I've purchased some from Varese Saraband, and Buysoundtrax.com, but as yet have not found any of these on ebay. But, that's half the fun of collecting John Wayne memorabilia, THE SEARCH!


    Best to all,

    Howdy All,
    I just wanted you all to know that you are my last chance. I am still looking for a few more soundtracks to round out my collection. I have tried everywhere I can think of, except ebay. I tend to shy away from ebay for soundtracks because the ones I have gotten are rarely in decent shape due to scratches and such. So I am turning to the one group of folks that can help me. I would like to buy, trade, or do just about anything, to get either original soundtracks or dubbed copies of the following:
    Big Jake
    The Searchers
    The High and the Mighty
    The Sands of Iwo Jima
    Barbarian and the Geisha
    In Harm's Way


    Can anyone please help me?!


    I'm looking forward to hearing from you all. Either a posting here or a PM (which would probably be faster). Thanks everyone, I'm counting on you.
    Best to all,
    Colorado Bob


    Thanks Mike, I'm gonna go check it out.

    Howdy Mike,
    I'm curious, where did you find or see a Rio Bravo soundtrack. I've been looking, but I can't find it anywhere.

    That new True Grit soundtrack looks pretty good. I was never real happy with the jazzed up version that was released.


    At any rate, I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of a Rio Bravo soundtrack or a Chisum soundtrack. It seems to me that there is plenty of real good music in both films, and I think they would make great soundtracks. Especially if they (whoever "they" may be) were to include the opening of Chisum with the William Conrad narration, and on the Rio Bravo soundtrack they could include Dean Martin's rendition of the title song.


    I've never heard of either of these films having a soundtrack CD or album made. How about any of you folks?

    I didn't know Richard Hagman and Victor Young did the music for so many of Duke's films.

    Howdy All,
    I was just curious as to which composer of John Wayne film scores do you like the most. I would have to say that my favorites are Elmer Bernstein and Max Steiner. My favorite Bernstein scores are Cahill, and the Comancheros. And my favorite Steiner score is The Searchers. Just thought I'd throw this out.
