I noticed looking through this composer's filmography that a recording of this score was made on an lp from mca records, label, no. 204874. since I like this composer's western music, does anybody know anything about this piece and could it be transcribed onto cd for purchase? thanks for any information.

This MCA LP is a French western compilation from 1982 with just one cue - probably the Main Title taken directly from the movie itself - from Harline's THE LAST FRONTIER:

There is also one track each from the famous westerns HIGH NOON, MAN WITHOUT A STAR, THE TALL MEN, DUEL IN THE SUN, RUN OF THE ARROW, JOHNNY GUITAR, NEVADA SMITH, BIG VALLEY, SHENANDOAH, VILLA RIDES, WILL PENNY, PAINT YOUR WAGON, CUSTER OF THE WEST and TWO MULES FOR SISTER SARAH on this LP.
So all in all nothing special.

For whatever it's worth -- which may not be much -- here's the title song (which is also available for purchase as an mp3 track for 99 cents at amazon):

How did Duning get into this? It's a Leigh Harline score.

Good song. It wasn't composed by Leigh Harline. It was written by Lester Lee, with lyrics by Ned Washington. Sung by Rusty Draper in the film, the song has appeared on LPs by Tex Ritter and Norman Luboff.

Sorry, that was of course my fault. Just mixed them up for the moment. smile

This title came up on a thread about a year ago, and both manderley and haineshisway indicated that because it's a Columbia picture, a soundtrack release at this point would be less likely to happen than with some of the other studios. But no description or opinion regarding the music itself.

I'm still of that opinion, but with the unexpected Golden Age soundtrack releases we've gotten the past year or so, particularly from Mr. Bruce Kritzerland, who knows?

Still....it's Columbia and that library has not been much released yet.

For the present, I'll have to stick with my nice DVD of THE LAST FRONTIER---in scope and stereophonic sound. (As a matter of record, THE LAST FRONTIER also has another title, SAVAGE WILDERNESS, that it is sometimes known by.)
