The Music of the Wild West

Simply put, this is a soundtrack to a television series that chronicled the evolution of the American West from 1886 to 1896, when the frontier was closed and the Indian wars ended. Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder John McEuen compiled it; he composed the theme, and also performs here, along with many other American folk and roots musicians, playing the songs of the era.

They include: Marty Stuart, Red Steagall, the American Brass Band, the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble, Lyle Lovett (shockingly enough), Rodney and Beverly Dillard, Michael Martin Murphey, the Sons of the San Joaquin, and Byron Berline, just to name a few. If old cowboy songs and American ballads are your thing, or if you just plain enjoyed the series, this will most likely appeal to you.
