Editorial Reviews

As epic as the majestic films themselves, you'll hear more than 50 themes, from The Alamo, How the West Was Won and The Magnificent Seven to the spaghetti splendor of A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly . TV's Bonanza and The Lone Ranger and more recent gems like Dances with Wolves and Unforgiven round out the magnificence. Stunning fidelity from the City of Prague Philharmonic!

This collection of four compact discs are worth their weight in GOLD --- "The Magnificent Westerns", is the Ultimate Collection of Western Films & TV Themes --- The "Classic Western" is never-ending---always at the forefront of the Film Industry---whenever our film-makers run out of projects and ideas, they bring back "The Western"---fresh and never wandering far from the camera's eye or the composers pen---Silva Screen has been a leader in the "Compilation Department", so is it any wonder they release some hard-to-find scores---never fear my trail pardners---here they are!

Featuring The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Paul Bateman, James Fitzpatrick, Nic Raine and the Crouch End Festival Chorus ---perform 56 selections from classic oater blockbuster films and television---most complete collection ever assembled, over four hours of symphonic suites with full orchestra all individually wrapped-up into one neat package

4.0 out of 5 stars The Magnificent Westerns January 30, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
Just so it's clear "I KNOW THESE AREN"T ORIGINAL ARTIST"! Now that said this is a great compilation of the music of great Westerns on TV and movies. The orchestra does an above average job of imitating the original scores. You will have to listen with super quality headphones for hours to distinguish the subtle differences. If you are that "a" retentive then by all means find the original scores and pay far more to compile this collection. Otherwise suffice that this is a bargain for the number of songs and the caliber of the recreation of the movie scores.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but things you should be aware of . . . January 28, 2012
By wvc
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is great, but here's what you need to know about it:

-All of the music is performed by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. It's not from any of the original sources. So the Bonanza theme song is not exactly the same as what you hear in the TV show opening. And the guy singing the song from High Noon is good, but it's not the same guy who sings the song in the movie. Just be aware that this is a compilation of the music, but not from the original sources.

-Some great Western songs are missing. For example, they have a great medley of the music from "The Searchers", one of the greatest Westerns ever made, and the medley really makes any fan of the movie appreciate how well done the score was, but it does NOT include the actual theme song from "The Searchers" (What Makes a Man to Wander?).

-It includes some themes that could just as well have been left off. I know, that's my personal opinion, but not every track on this set is a winner.

So long as you know that, it's a fun album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Is Right! June 1, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These CD's are are constant companions that I listen to on my way to work in the morning...Nic Raine and his orchestra do a superb job rendering the themes, but some of the vocals, especially the one for Rawhide, make me yearn for the originals. All in all, it's a great set, definetely worth the money for a 40-50something baby boomer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful set of CDs May 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not the original versions, but orchestral remakes. Very well done, and enjoyable. All my favorites and then some. The baritone opera singer doing OK Corral is a bit funny (He's no Frankie Lane), but still entertaining. It had me whistling along through all the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tunes, nicely re-orchestrated. May 19, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The product description clearly states "symphonic suites with full orchestra", so I don't understand all the indignation over the fact that these are not soundtrack recordings. The soundtracks of these shows are widely available, so there's nothing wrong with these great songs being re-arranged and re-orchestrated, as has been done with many musical classics since before Bach. This is a great collection, very listenable. Relax and enjoy!

Update: I was disappointed to hear the word "dogies" mispronounced in the theme from "Rawhide". The singer pronounced it "doggies" throughout the song. (A doggie is a canine. A dogie -- pronounced "DOEghee" -- is an orphan calf). I guess it's a small thing, but it's one of those details that ought to be correct. At the least it suggests that the singer had no idea what he was singing about.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Magnificent Westerns February 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This 4 disc rendition of 100 western movie soundtrack themes is OK. My fault in final analysis because I was looking for ORIGINAL SOUND TRACKS and although the renditions done are pretty good, hearing another singer do OK Corral or High Noon other than Frankie Lane or Tex Ritter is just not getting the job done. The instrumental cuts although not original are still good. Another disc is coming in mid March which states it is "all original" and I will check that one out. Last, some of the cuts selected are not distinct in terms of deserving a notice as a western theme to be included. With 100 cuts you are going to get some added as "filler content" and for me that is what happened. Last and Last, it notes that Dimitri Tiomkin is the "composer" but it is the Prague Orchestra who does the arrangements and plays the music....again, not original.
