WELL WORTH THE WAIT,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Geoff Love & His Orchestra Big Western Movie Themes & Great TV Western Themes (Audio CD)
Just like a London Bus, you wait ages for this particular release on CD and two come along within months of each other. The first, released on the `Sovereign` label consisted of 24 tracks and was reviewed by myself a few months ago. The second, on the `Vocalion` label, also has 24 tracks, and is a compilation of the Movie and TV Western Themes originally released in 1969 and 1970.
Each collection has 17 tracks which are the same. On "Geoff Love Western Themes" the other 7 tracks are, "For A Few Dollars More", "The Wild Bunch", "Cat Ballou", "True Grit", "Once Upon A Time In The West", The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" and "Hombre". The 7 alternatives on the second CD are "Friendly Persuasion", "Stagecoach To Cheyenne", "A Man, A Horse And A Gun", "Bonanza", "Cheyenne", "Shenandoah" and "Hondo".
Both collections are played with gusto and bring out the feeling of the old west and enhance those distant memories of when we had a `Western` on TV almost every night of the week. Yes those were the days. It is hard to choose between the two collections , as both are similar in so many ways. Personally I have both copies, but if I was forced to choose, I would pick the latter.
