5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection 12 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nearly sixty years ago an indulgent uncle took me to see a rodeo staged in London by Tom Arnold, a producer then (1950s) normally associated with ice pantomimes. The star attraction was Tex Ritter and much of the programme's second half was given over to his singing. I was impressed and over the years many of his songs have remained favourites particularly High Noon. This Bear Family collection entitled "High Noon" is the best example of Ritter's work that is currently available. One or two of his famous offerings are missing but in addition to two versions of High Noon the selection includes such enduring favourites as The Wayward Wind, Remember the Alamo and The Searchers. There are 28 tunes on the CD and virtually all have a genuine western feel. A very enjoyable purchase and far superior to many of the other collections available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Bear Family excellence 17 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking for a single-disc Tex Ritter collection, this is the one to choose. At 28 tracks, it is a fairly comprehensive look back at Ritter's career, and--as you can see from the track listing--it has just about all the major western songs. Sound quality is great, and the disc contains informative liner notes that include a brief bio and complete session information. In all, this is the best way to get Ritter's music barring a purchase of Blood on the Saddle, the Bear Family box set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Original Soundtrack! 19 April 2000
By Roger L. Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really like the cd, but the two High Noons are not the original soundtrack recording. I have not been able to find the original, except recording it off the original motion picture. The same goes for the song "Wichita." All in all a very good cd. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Along! Great CD 22 Sep 2003
By Edward M. Erdelac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I picked this up wanting the theme song to High Noon and got a lot more than I bargained for. Although neither of the two versions of High Noon (Do Not Forsake Me O My Darling) presented here are the definitive track from the film (a couple verses are missing), the theme songs to The Searchers and Gunsmoke are here, along with some great pop western tracks (Boogie Woogie Cowboy, The Wayward Wind, Goodbye My Little Cherokee, and I Got Spurs [that] Jingle Jangle Jingle). There are a lot of ballads here, at least one of which (Rye Whiskey, or Jack Of Diamonds, as I've sometimes heard it called) is an authentic Old West tune. There are a couple surprises here too - Buffalo Dream is an emotional (and historically accurate) rendering of the rise of the Ghost Dance religion and massacre of the Sioux at Wounded Knee. Blood On The Saddle is an eerie tune about a cowboy dead in the saddle, and Remember The Alamo is a great soul stirrer (so long as you're an Anglo Texan). Great ballads, too. Brave Man sounds like a coda written by Marshall Dillon, John Wayne, and The Lone Ranger. Good stuff here, with very few turkeys (I didn't care for Trooper Hook) and some fine liner notes following the career of this western legend - the father of the late John `Come and Knock On My Door' Ritter.

2.0 out of 5 stars High Noon by Tex Ritter 21 May 2012
By Debi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I already have these songs. I searched Tex Ritter songs: A Beautiful Life and Onward Christian Soldiers. I was sent to this CD, but it does not have these two songs. The CD has good songs, but not the one I want. Be careful to read the song lists on the CD before purchasing.

I have had this movie on DVD since it was first released. I liked the movie and the songs, so finally bought the CD.
