For The Shootist, this CD presents the score for the first time in its original form, mastered from 1/4" stereo mixes. As for The Sons of Katie Elder, Elmer Bernstein re-recorded and arranged his music from the film for a Columbia Records soundtrack LP released along with the film.
The soundtrack album includes adaptations of film cues, sometimes combining two or more into a single track, while other selections begin with music from the film but continue as extended arrangements of specific melodieswhich receive more play and development than in the actual film score.
Included in this release is the title song performed by Johnny Cash as well as the John Wayne narration. As an added bonus we have also included a version of the title song performed by Ernie Sheldon that was released as a rare single back when the film came out. Sadly, nothing of the original score has survived but luckily the fine folks at Sony Music discovered the original master tapes for the Katie LP.
