The Legend of The Lone Ranger Movie Suite

Legend of the Lone Ranger, The Suite
Music by John Barry

Taken as a whole, this movie suite from 1981 is representative of what Mr. Barry was putting out in the early 80's when he was so very busy with James Bond scores and the like. This has a very down on the farm attitude (or is it a western attitude?) that seems just about right. It's obvious that this was not an action picture, so other than the requisite William Tell Overture 3/4 of the way through, we have some themes that beg you to sit back and relaxe as you listen. With a timing of 16:58 this demonstrates where we've been and it is an enjoyable reminder. I hope you enjoy.  -MJ
