The CD release from Spy Guise Entertainment, "The Alamo: A Musical Tribute to John Wayne's Epic Film" is a unique and outstanding achievement by musician Mike Boldt that serves as his eagerly-awaited follow-up to his first CD, "James Bond and Beyond".
Boldt pays tribute to John Wayne's classic 1960 film and composer Dimitri Tiomkin's legendary score. More than just "cover versions" of Tiomkin's music, Boldt brings innovative new excitement to these tracks and provides three outstanding original songs that feature readings of letters from the actual Alamo heroes.
Bonus items include: an informative 8 page collector's booklet with liner notes by Alamo experts Frank Thompson, William R. Chemerka and Lee Pfeiffer. The album also contains seven extremely rare original 1960 radio spot commercials for John Wayne's film.
