"Silva celebrates the settling of the American Frontier"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 03/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Believe I'll stroll down to the corral, rope a bronc, saddle up, ride into town and meet the
latest two CD's released from Silva Screen Records Ltd ~ "Way Out West:The Essential
Film Music Collection 2", featuring some of the best (as they say on trail drives) "burning
daylight" scores ever composed...faithful to the original soundtracks, under the watchful eye of
conductor Nic Raine...performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra (world
reowned)...no surprise on the arrangements, chuck full of orchestrations...tapped for beautiful
voices is David Temple (Choir Master) and his always dynamically sounding ~ Crouch End
Festival Chorus...with added enjoyment from soloist Charlotte Kinder (soprano), Jason
Howard (baritone), Keith Ferreira (baritone) with vocals...Steve Lockwood (harmonica),
Nick Watson (guitar/banjo) and Gareth Williams (keyboard/percussion/sound
effects)...musically inclusive sprinkled with lingering familiarity of excellence...performances
are over-the-top. Silva Screen brings together legendary composers of film music ~ Burt Bacharach (BUTCH
CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID)...Elmer Bernstein (THE HALLELUJAH
TRAIL/THE COMANCHEROS/THE SCALPHUNTERS/THE SHOOTIST)...George
Duning (THE BIG VALLEY-TV SERIES)...Ray Evans/Jay Livingston (BONANZA-TV
SERIES)...Percy Faith (THE VIRGINIAN-TV SERIES)...Hugo Friedhofer (ONE-EYED
JACKS)...Dominic Frontiere (HANG 'EM HIGH)...Lee Holdridge (OLD
GRINGO)...Jerome Moross (THE BIG COUNTRY/THE JAYHAWKERS/THE PROUD
REBEL)...Ennio Morricone (FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE/A FISTFUL OF
DYNAMITE/THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY/ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE
WEST)...Alfred Newman (HOW THE WEST WAS WON/NEVADA SMITH)...Alex
North (VIVA ZAPATA)...Basil Poledouris (QUIGLEY DOWN UNDER)...David Rose
(THE HIGH CHAPARRAL-TV SERIES)...Gioacchino Rossini (THE LONE RANGER-TV
SERIES-WILLIAM TELL OVERTURE)...Alan Silvestri (THE QUICK & THE
DEAD)...Max Steiner (THE HANGING TREE)...Dimitri Tiomkin (THE ALAMO/DUEL IN
THE SUN/FRIENDLY PERSUASION/GIANT/GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K.
CORRAL/HIGH NOON/RIO BRAVO/THE UNFORGIVEN)...Victor Young
(SHANE)...flawless impeccable award winning scores journey down dusty trails over
snow-capped mountains...traveling through homesteads, land barons, hired guns, Indian
villages, railroad workers, cavalrymen, sodbusters, broncbusters and Mexican
revolutionaries...each an epic recounting real events of the "Early American West" and the
fight for freedom on the side of right. Mr. James Fitzpatrick (producer), along with other Silva Screen staff ~ Reynold da Silva
(executive producer), Rickie Clark (associate producer), single-handedly revived "Essential
Western Film Music" with the avid "film-score-buff" collector in mind, each selection manages
to be respectful of their cinematic roots and the soundtracks we've come to love and
cherish...as we remember the first release ~ "The Wild West:The Essential Western Film
Music Collection Vol. 1" (SSD-1099/2CD Set), rousing triumphant success for the
listener...it's no wonder the second installment is right up there with the first...absolutely
first-rate! Total Time: Disc One 72:16 on 19 Tracks & Disc Two 67:52 on 19 Tracks ~ Silva Screen
Records SSD-1136 ~ (2002)"
Some of the Best Western Backround Music
William F. Pakinkis | Tombstone, Arizona United States | 07/25/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a Western Reenactor over 23 years,22 years as a Yuma
Vigilante and almost 1 year as a Tombstone Vigilante. For those 23 years I have been involved in gunfights, barroom brawls,train hold-ups,stage robberies and a variety of other acts associated with Western Movies and the "Old Wild West".Back in the 1980's and into the mid 1990's most western reenactment groups had slim pickens,(no relation to that great Character Actor Slim Pickens)of good western music to play before or during a skit,(or reenactment if you wish)back about a year or so ago I bought a CD set called "The West",and it had the soundtracks on it that were really associated with the western movies that we all learned to enjoy time and time again. I then purchased the CD,The Wild West,and I knew my prayers were being answered.On my way to shows or special events I play my Western music to put myself in character,(or in the mood)and before shows we would play the western music to get the audience in the mood for real
"Wild West"action and during breaks the music would again be played. And now I purchased "Way Out West",which filled in the gaps of the music that I did not have,I have already played the CD's several times and some of the selections are outstanding,a
couple were not that great, but the good outweighted the bad.I now have another CD on order from the "Alamo to El Dorado" and I am now waiting for its arrival.No matter what critics say, the Westerns are here to stay, and the music will live on."

"I enjoy this CD. It has many familiar melodies. Good background for reading, nice to listen while driving. It is also the only CD I've ever found that has the great theme from the movie "Giant.""
