This is an excellent collection of original western film themes and songs which I greatly enjoyed and will look forward to listening to again on many occasions. The emphasis in the title is on "original" - this is the actual sounds heard on the movie rather than a recreation by some philharmonic or Geoff Love and company. The result is stunning in terms of sound quality and cinematic in its scope. Starting with the double whammy of The Magnificent Seven and The Big Country you are reminded that western theme tunes never got better than this. Elmer Bernstein's stirring soundtrack for McQueen and friends is enough to get anyone pulling on their holster to go out to face a hundred Mexican bandits. And The Big Country is such an epic theme suggesting vast rolling western landscapes and the dust of the trail that they almost produced a film big enough to fit it.

These two themes rank among the best film tracks ever, regardless of genre, and they are followed up by the excellent Treasure of Sierra Madre, one of several offerings here from composer Max Steiner - you can almost hear the sound of the gold glistening in the sunlight. Then it is into the dulcet tones of Tex Ritter singing Dimitri Tiomkin's classic theme song to High Noon - it may not be as good as Frankie Laine's hit version but it has a down to earth gritty quality that Laine's version lacks. Before you can recover from all this aural excellence we are straight into Gene Pitney singing his heart out about The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Did you ever wonder what it is in the American psyche that makes them so keen on outlaws and gunslingers? Liberty is the bad guy but when you think about it, that name is one you would associate with the American Dream...
