From Tadlow Music: “The strangest trio ever to track a killer... A fearless, one-eyed U.S. Marshall who never knew a dry day in his life, a Texas Ranger thirsty for bounty money... and a girl still wet behind the ears who didn't care what they were or who they were as long as they had true grit...”
Tadlow Music presents a brand new World Premiere recording of the complete score to TRUE GRIT, the classic 1969 Western directed by Henry Hathaway, starring John Wayne in a career-rejuvenating role as Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn, along with Glen Campbell, Kim Darby, Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper and Strother Martin, featuring music composed and conducted by the great Elmer Bernstein and performed by the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by James Fitzpatrick.
A drunken, hard-nosed U.S. Marshall and a Texas Ranger help a stubborn young woman track down her father's murderer in Indian territory.
Tadlow Music presents over 69 minutes of music from TRUE GRIT, including 25 minutes of music previously unrecorded, digitally mastered in Dolby Surround and HDCD.
This release of TRUE GRIT also contains bonus material, music composed by Elmer Bernstein for other great John Wayne films including THE COMANCHEROS, SONS OF KATIE ELDER, BIG JAKE, CAHILL: UNITED STATES MARSHALL and THE SHOOTIST.
This is a newly recorded Digital Recording of the complete Elmer Bernstein score and should not be mistaken for the original Capitol Records album release. TRUE GRIT is presented as a special Collector's Edition, limited to 3000 units.
