All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
There is astonishingly little overlap between this 26-song collection, consisting of songs from various western movie and television soundtracks, and other, rival domestic releases. As usual, Bear Family has done its best to gather together the best and most unusual of this material -- a promotional-only single of Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin singing "My Rifle, My Pony and Me" from Rio Bravo adapted by Dimitri Tiomkin from the title theme from a score he wrote for an earlier John Wayne/Howard Hawks movie, Red River; Merle Kilgore sounding a lot like Tex Ritter doing the title song from Nevada Smith; "The Legend of Shenandoah" by James Stewart, telling the plot of the film ...

There are no notes, but everything else is first-rate about this disc.

    Kirk Douglas Sings!

    The All Music Guide review that accompanies this CD on B&N's website is right on. I just have a couple things to add. If two of the reasons you're interested in buying this CD is the opportunity to finally have Rawhide and The Rebel-Johnny Yuma in your collection, you will only be 50% satisfied. Frankie Laine's version of Rawhide is here and sounds just great. But Johnny Cash's The Rebel is some tune and some words I have never heard before. It's a real disappointment. I repeat: The Rebel-Johnny Yuma song we are all familiar with is not the one they offer on this CD. It has totally different music and lyrics. Other than that one complaint, I was satisfied with the CD. It's quirky, it's corny, it's kitsch- but I am of an age now (47) where I no longer have to care about what's cool and hip. Just sit back with a smile and listen to Lorne Greene sing Bonanza.
