The Tall Texan [MMM-1974] features an impressive western score by Bert Shefter, usually known as Paul Sawtell’s partner. This solid 1953 Lloyd Bridges’ movie tells the story of gold and greed in the wilds of New Mexico, and it was edited and directed by the award-winning Elmo Williams, who contributed to the research for the liner notes. Soon to turn 100, Mr. Williams is a legend as an editor, winning an Academy Award for his extraordinary work on High Noon. This CD is dedicated to Mr. Williams.

This disc has everything you want in a western score: heroic melodies, exciting action sequences, Indian themes, romance, and much more. Some of the music will remind you of Bernard Herrmann, some will remind you of Elmer Bernstein, but Shefter wrote this score in his own style, and those musical similarities actually predate those moments by the other composers. This 50-minute CD will take you back to a time when men were men and Indians were Indians! The music was transferred from the composer's original tape reels, and the 20-page illustrated liner book details the music, the composer, and the movie. The lovely cover painting is by the gifted Robert Aragon.
