"Need an INSTANT STRESS RELIEVER? The slow, melodic tones and orchestral presentation will take you away. Some of it is lighthearted; some VERY sad. I have two sets of the CD's, because I don't EVER want to be without this music in my life."
A historical ride

"Rick Burns' production was incredibly enhanced by the music from Brian Keane. This album is a wonderful addition to anyone's collection that is interested in the conquest of the West and the mix of people that came to claim the land. Of course, the land was not vacant, and the West was lost to the native peoples of this continent. A companion to The Way West may be easily found in How The West Was Lost, recorded onto two individual albums, by Peter Kater. Every bit as emotionally capturing as Keane's music, but, from a decidely different perspective."
One of the best instrumental soundtracks EVER!

"After I watched PBS' production of "The American Experience: The Way West," back in 1994, I was moved to tears not only by the tragedy of what was done to the natives of our country, but by this hauntingly beautiful music which accompanied it. I HAD to buy it immediately. Rarely have I owned a soundtrack album where 95% of the music is relaxing, emotionally-moving, yet haunting. I am so very happy this is now available online, for I since have played the heck out of that 2-cd album, and it's a bit scratched. A huge recommendation for anyone who appreciates such music, which, for me, has mostly a native american theme...and thus, it is a wonderful introduction to this musical genre. (It encouraged me to search for other artists!)"
