"This CD is not bad at all for the music that Carter composed.
He borrowed quite a bit from other sources and you can find them
right here on Amazon. The banjo music and yodel is by Pete Seeger
from the CD "Darling Corey And Goofing-Off Suite". The wonderful
Monkey Chant is the Balinese Ramayana Monkey Chant and can be found
on the CD "Bali: Golden Rain" in its original 22 minute version.
Whimsical and eerie

"I bought this for the fantastic Raising Arizona music (my favorite movie) and was a little disappointed. The music has been slightly redone, some of it pretty inexplicably (the main theme is done calypso style). And "Ode to Joy" on banjo, the music I most wanted from the film, is missing. But the dream sequence music is here, and it's all still enjoyable.I was surprised to find I enjoy the "Blood Simple" music more. I've only seen the movie once, so I can't say whether it's intact. But it's very creepy, a strange contrast to the goofy fun of the Raising Arizona music.All in all, a great CD, but lacking some of what I expected."
Missing banjo playing from Raising Arizona.

"The Raising Arizona part of the CD is almost exclusively electronic and only one 90 second track of the great banjo that I remember from the movie. I recommend listening to samples before you buy."
