Soundtrack Ratings







Ballad Of Cable Hogue

A lesson in less is more for Sam Peckinpah's off beat western. Goldsmith's tiny score, a grand total of 20 minutes, is one of his most lyrical for the western genre, incorporating a memorable theme played for a multitude of genre instruments including Jew's Harp, Harmonica, Banjo and Accordion. But what impresses the most is the ease at which Goldsmith switches from slapstick to melancholy while developing his impressive theme for Richard Gillis' main title lyrics - Tomorrow Is The Song I Sing. Goldsmith also arranges a number of additional cues for Gillis and Gillis provides two further songs.

Varese's Club release is a polished disc with informative notes and crystal clear stereo sound but the obscure nature of the film and meagre running time of Jerry Goldsmith's contribution may mean it has limited appeal.

Expanded review to follow.
