Editorial Reviews

Here are the virile, invigorating Hollywood Western tales of screen icon Lorne Greene. Recorded in the mid-1960s, at the height of his Bonanza fame, you'll hear a brew of tradition, lounge-pop affectation and spaghetti western mania. Witness the tense fuzz-tone of Pop Goes The Hammer, the chilling conclusion of The Search or the haunting, philosophical I'm A Gun. Bold arrangements by Joe Reisman and Anita Kerr. Remastered from the original RCA Victor master tapes with rare photos, a candid interview with Lorne himself and original liner notes this deluxe collector's edition presents his finest LP with a generous clutch of extra tracks including the number one smash hit Ringo"" Original LP + 16 extra tracks, 28 tracks total.

This is definitely one of Lorne Greene's best albums (originally released in 1965 on RCA) and this CD does contain that album and additional bonus tracks. However, a huge majority of the bonus tracks come from his 1966 "Portrait of The West" album, in fact 8 of the 12 tracks from that album are on this CD in the original playing order (these 2 albums are on the 3rd disc of the Bonanza: Ponderosa Party Time boxed set on Bear Family in their entirety in the original playing order), and the rest of the bonus tracks are An Ol' Tin Cup (And A Battered Ol' Coffee Pot), Endless Prairie, Sand, and the #1 hit "Ringo" all from 1964's "Welcome To The Ponderosa") plus Five Card Stud, Cool Water, The Devil's Grin, and Gold, all from 1965's "Lorne Greene's American West." ("Welcome To The Ponderosa" and "Lorne Greene's American West" are combined on the 2nd disc of the boxed set in their entirety). If you can't afford the boxed set, this CD is a must have, otherwise, I would rather have you buy the boxed set than this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good memories. April 26, 2010

I was looking for an album with the song "Ringo" because it brought back good memories and found this album with lots of songs I remember from a long time ago. Love the album and glad I found it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man July 10, 2010
Verified Purchase
Excellent Album. Love the songs and commentary. I wish they would redo on CD the Album "Welcome to the Ponderosa" Just as it was done back in the 60's. This Album has some of them with a few I had not heard before. Loved them all and miss the one's left out from "Welcome to the Ponderosa" I have had the Vinyl for almost 50 years and it just does not play well anymore. Need a CD version with a reasonable price to get the missing songs. Just a great CD especially when on the road.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lorne Green the Man??? March 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
Only good song is Ringo. Unless you admire Lorne Green just for who he is, in that case you would probably love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MEMORY OF BONANZA AND LA PONDEROSA July 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
Now in my hands. Who may not remember LA PONDEROSA RANCH. Yes BONANZA home. That famous place somewhere in the Far West when coaches hauled by horses carrying passengers all over America used to stop at this place. Here is in this CD the star of that TV SHOW. LORNE GREENE. Here included his number one country hit RINGO. Narrating the story of a man who fought face to face with RINGO the bandit who was hurted by a bullet and saved by someone who was said to be his friend. But RINGO never imagined the situation for him was going to change very seriously in the hands of that friend who once saved his life. RINGO reached hit parade NUMBER ONE top one position the year 1964. That time BONANZA was in the second season and reaching 10 years on air with great success. LORNE GREENE entered inmortality by the end of the years 1980. Here is his best testimony. HE will always be rememebered as THE FAR OLD WEST NARRATOR. RINGO and all the songs here contained, where HIS OWN VOICE introduces the CHARACTER of every story. We really enter into the life of each character in every story here performed. I fully recommend this album. A most for COUNTRY MUSIC fans and collectors. Also for lovers of Far Western Legends.
