Side Tracks

I don't do many soundtracks but after watching John Wayne westerns all morning one seems appropriate. Here's the quintessential cowboy theme...



Speaking of quintessential, how about Neil LeVang doing Ghost Riders in the Sky, from way back when..



By the way, for those who figured the Allmans or CDB were the first to popularize electric guitar harmonies, think again (maybe those guys were secret admirers of the Welk show).

Who would have imagined Elmer Bernstein or Dimitri Tiomkin could produce the best “western themes” ever made? And I smile as I recall my grandmother, an avid fan of Lawrence Welk. Thank you for that, AC …

Sometime Mustang is never happy no matter how hard one tries to make him. But then other times, it only takes a cowboy movie or a song and he cheers right up for days on end.

Good job AC.

Lawrence Welk has that effect on folks, LA. It must be in the bubbles. I recommend you dedicate all the rest of your "Blast from the Past" segments to Welk videos.. it'll be great!
