Pops Roundup presents a Walt Disney view of the west in which soaring strings and horns evoke images from western movies rather than the actual west. The dynamic music features all-new arrangements of classic western songs as well as themes from television, films, and Broadway shows. Woodblocks create the clippity-clop of horses' hooves, and other uncommon (for an orchestra) instruments such as harmonica and accordion crop up in places. An array of odd sounds, from whistles to gunshots, add to the strong visual quality of the music. Two long medleys of western television themes and fiddle reels bookend the album, with the latter receiving a positively whimsical interpretation. Pops Roundup is a soundtrack in search of a motion picture, and will give western film enthusiasts a serious case of deja vu. The CD reissue adds six bonus tracks.
If you like Western music and you like Classical music, get ready to join one of the best musical 'round-ups' ever! The title theme will evoke fond memories of TV theme songs long-faded into memory and will take you back to the precious times of your youth spent with your family watching your favorite westerns together. And the other titles of course will remind you of all your favorite Western classics sung by Roy Rogers, Frankie Laine, Marty Robbins, Johnny Western, Gene Autry, and Tex Ritter. What a wonderful compilation! Enjoy!
I grew up listening to this album in the car.
So wonderful to hear these long-forgotten songs again. They are even better the second time around. Thanks for preserving these wonderful old songs!!!
