Editorial Reviews

There is astonishingly little overlap between this 26-song collection, consisting of songs from various western movie and television soundtracks, and other, rival domestic releases. As usual, Bear Family has done its best to gather together the best and most unusual of this material -- a promotional-only single of Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin singing "My Rifle, My Pony and Me" from Rio Bravo (adapted by Dimitri Tiomkin from the title theme from a score he wrote for an earlier John Wayne/Howard Hawks movie, Red River); Merle Kilgore (sounding a lot like Tex Ritter) doing the title song from Nevada Smith; "The Legend of Shenandoah" by James Stewart, telling the plot of the film while a chorus sings the title tune, as a sort of audio trailer for the movie Shenandoah (more of an eastern than a western); the Sons of the Pioneers doing the title theme from The Searchers; Marty Robbins' version of "The Ballad of the Alamo"; Tex Ritter's second (and best) recording of "High Noon"; and the Sons of the Pioneers performing "Song of the Wagonmaster" and "Wagons West" from Wagonmaster; Roy Rogers singing "The Yellow Rose of Texas" (to an utterly unfamiliar melody); Johnny Cash's "The Sons of Katie Elder" (a soundtrack never reissued on CD); and the only CD release of Dean Martin's "Rio Bravo." There are no notes, but everything else is first-rate about this disc. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

This CD is a must-have for anyone who considers themselves a Duke fan. I loved the brief intro by John Wayne to the title track and was surprised to hear the exact rendition of the song as in the movie. Other classics include The Alamo, Searchers, Sons of Katie Elder, etc. Not to be ignored are some good television themes (Palladin) and some unintentionally humorous songs (Lorne Greene sings "Bonanza"). I also thoroughly enjoy the Sons of the Pioneers with Roy Rogers. All in all, a very fun CD for playing on a Friday afternoon at work!

When I saw the title, I immediately recalled the Ricky Nelson - Dean Martin duet in "Rio Bravo" as they were held up in the sheriff's office with trusty Walter Brennan and you know who, John Wayne. This CD brings back many, many memories, when Westerns were King of the small or silver screen.

Whether it's Johnny Horton's "North to Alaska" or Marty Robbin's "Ballad of the Alamo", you can sit back and hear Frankie Laine's "Rawhide" and "Gunfight At O.K. Corral". Too many to mention them all, but Johnny Cash, Lorne Greene, Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter, and a dozen more add to the 'best of the West' in this tv/movie collection of soundtracks and theme songs, you'll be sure to enjoy.

This is a great CD for the old western lovers. My family made a game out of the first playing of it by having to guess the name of the song and who was singing it. (One person had control of the jewel case.) What was so great about it was there was nary a cuss word or drug use in it. Very family friendly.

Boy, do these bring back memories of some of the Great Westerns of the 50's. We sit and listen to the songs and think of the movies and the TV shows that they are from. We can remember who starred in the movies and how the "Sons of the Pioneers" entered the stage to sing.

This is a GREAT CD.

For anyone old enough to remember all the great Old West TV shows and movies from the same era, this CD is bound to bring you lots of fond memories and relaxing pleasure. What's best, the artists are all the originals; there are no remakes. Plenty of tunes are on this CD. It's well worth the price and the time.

Once again Bear Family comes through. There are some obscure tracks on this disc including Jimmy Stewart's Shenandoah and Dean Martin's vocal version of Rio Bravo which never made it into the movie!! Johnny Western's theme from "Paladin" is here as is the version of Frankie Laine's "Rawhide" with the whips cracking. I would liked to have seen Frankie's "3:10 to Yuma" and the other song that Dean and Ricky did from "Rio Bravo", "Cindy", and the theme from "El Dorado", but all in all this is a very nice disc.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. A must for both casual and die-hard Western fans. Great even if your sense of nostalgia doesn't reach that far back (like me; I'm 22). I love the combination of slow ballads and fast, jumpy songs.

I LOVE this western CD from the John Wayne movie "Rio Bravo", with the exceptional duo of Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin singing "My Rifle, My Pony and Me. This CD also includes legendary Jimmy Stewart with "Shenandoah" from the movie of same name, the theme song "The Searchers" from the John Wayne movie, sung by the Sons of the Pioneers; the Ballad of Davy Crockett, sung by actor Fess Parker-Disney's "Davy Crockett" character and TV's Daniel Boone; legendary Frankie Laine and the theme song "Rawhide" from Clint Eastwood's early career TV show; "Rio Bravo" sung by Dean Martin; legendary Country star Johnny Cash singing "Johnny Yuma, The Rebel" from the television series of same name and also singing the "Sons of Katie Elder" based on the John Wayne/Dean Martin western movie; it includes Johnny Western singing the original "Paladin" from Richard Boone's hit western tv show; another western TV legend, Lorne "Ben Cartwright" Greene sings "BONANZA" theme song and I'll close by mentioning it includes actor Kirk Douglas singing the hit song "As the Moon Grew Brighter" from the western movie "Man Without a Star" starring Douglas; as well as several songs from legendary cowboy Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers. You can't have grown up in America without hearing these stars and songs. Absolutely a great CD!
