LIMITED EDITION (4-CD SET) LLLCD 1502
Music by Alfred Newman, Nelson Riddle, Walter Scharf, Johnny Douglas, Paul Dunlap, David Raskin, Harry Sukman, Roy Webb, Franz Waxman, Daniele Amfitheatrof and Victor Young
Limited Edition of 1000 Units
RETAIL PRICE: $59.98

La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures proudly present NEVADA SMITH: THE PARAMOUNT WESTERNS COLLECTION, a deluxe 4-CD soundtrack collection of original film score recordings from Paramount Pictures’ big-screen westerns NEVADA SMITH (1966), EL DORADO (1967), THREE VIOLENT PEOPLE (1957), KID RODELO (1966), WALK LIKE A DRAGON (1960), WILL PENNY (1968), THE HANGMAN (1959), BRANDED (1950), THE FURIES (1950), COPPER CANYON (1950), and STREETS OF LAREDO (1949).

Meticulously restored from Paramount Pictures’ vault elements, this exciting compilation features original score recordings from eleven of the studio’s western features spanning the course of two decades. Most of these recordings are making their world premiere here, and many contain material not heard in their respective films. It’s a sonic treasure chest, showcasing Hollywood’s top Golden Age maestros at the apex of their craft, working in a legendary genre. Composers Alfred Newman, Nelson Riddle, Walter Scharf, Johnny Douglas, Paul Dunlap, David Raskin, Harry Sukman, Roy Webb, Franz Waxman, Daniele Amfitheatrof and Victor Young are represented here, their music encompassing a breathtaking variety, from grand orchestral sweep to spare and intimate moments – and everything in-between.

Produced by John Takis and Frank K. DeWald, with audio restoration by Chris Malone, this special 4 disc collection is limited to 1000 units, and features a 36 page booklet with exclusive, in-depth liner notes written by the producers. Dan Goldwasser’s art design corals the packaging together in classic fashion.

Raksin's WILL PENNY is the one I'm initially most interested in... I'm sure if I bought the full set I'd be pleasantly surprised by some other stuff too. I'll leave it up to Santa.

LC, it's quite unnerving to read that stern correction with your new inscrutable face blinking away at the side.

Yeah, I figured space would be a problem. On the positive side, not enough room to spell it as pronounced here in Massachusetts - "Nevarder." wink

This set is a must have. There's no doubt LLL is listening to people posting here because this release contains several long-time holy grails wrapped into one package.

Makes sense. I'm most interested in Nevada Smith and Will Penny because I like those scores. I am not familiar with the other scores, so I'm excited to hear new western film scores. Who knows what treasures exist in Them Thar Hills.smile

I'm with you. In any case, a new Raksin release is a must have, even if I have to buy three other CDs to get it.

From the little I've been able to glean online, Johnny Douglas' score for "Rodelo Kid" is in the spaghetti western style. Douglas scored the US version, with Manuel Parada handling the european version.
Anyone seen it?

Lyn Murray's SON OF PALEFACE.

Not at the American Heritage Center, unless it was mislabeled. But his music for a Rainier Beer commercial can be found in the Saul Bass collection (I didn't know he directed commercials) at the Oscars archive: http://collections.new.oscars.org/Details/Archive/71015567
Contents: Deer (:20) -- Crystals (:20) -- Storm & clearing (:60) -- Up the mountain (:60) -- Copter (:10).
Thought I'd mention it before Yavar did. wink
