"This album was "never" the original soundtrack recording but a disc of outlandishly "commercial" arrangements of thematic material from the film score. It therefore remains something of an oddity. Those wanting a faithful rendition of Elmer Bernstein's score wil be pleased to note that a recording of the entire score - every note of it - has now been made utilising the original manuscripts - with the original orchestrations by Leo Shuken and Jack Hayes - and is due for release on the Tadlow Music label in June 2006."
The original album

"I don't think this CD should be bashed just because it doesn't cover the whole 2 hours and 5 minutes of the movie.I too saw the movie in 1969 and have watched it at least once a year since it came out on VHS/DVD.This CD is an exact reproduction of the original soundtrack album issued in 1969(or early 70?)by Capitol Records(album # ST-263).As I write this review,I'm listening to the album that I purchased 36 years ago.There is not any difference.If you want a CD of the complete soundtrack,you will just have to wait(maybe forever).If you are interested in remembering how it sounded 36 years ago spend the money and buy this CD."
It's the soundtrack that came out with the movie!!!

"i remember when my parents had this in vinyl (the white cover with the pic of john wayne on it... with the glen campbell song) - it IS what came out as the soundtrack to the movie true grit and it's awesome. i'm as excited to get this on cd as i was when the soundtrack to paint your wagon came out
the song by glen is wonderful..."
