Alamo Music various artists

Postby Travis247 on Sat Sep 11, 2010 10:14 pm

I have the Tiomkin vinyl album and CD, the Boldt CD, the vinyl Beneke album but one of my favorites which I don't have any longer was an 8 track tape (showing my age here) of Johnny Cash's America. He goes thru each state as they were added to the union and when he gets to Texas he sez" And in Texas, 5000 men under Santa Anna crossed the Rio Grande headed for San Antonio. Davy Crockett left Tennessee with the volunteers headed for San Antonio. At a Spanish mission near San Antonio they met a knife fighter and gambler named Jim Bowie and a Britisher (????) named Travis.......180 Americans against 5000 to the death". He then goes on to sing his ballad of the Alamo. This is one of the best renditions for me regarding Alamo music. I was online somewhere the other night and was able to listen to it but for the life of me, I cannot remember where it was. Any ideas?

Probably on youtube. Here's a live version of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqNFAbr7i8Y
This is a segment from the Johnny Cash show. REMEMBER THE ALAMO starts at 3:25.

I first heard REMEMBER THE ALAMO on Donovan Leitch's 1965 album WHAT'S BIN DID AND WHAT'S BIN HID, so it remains my favourite version. I wonder what compelled him to sing it, though? Donovan, a Scottish folk-singer and balladier who, like Bob Dylan was influenced by the music of Woody Guthrie, later went on to become practically a spokesman for the Flower Power movement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBup2JAY0EM

Hmm... seems that Mr. Cash must've "remembered" Laurence Harvey's portrayal of Travis in THE ALAMO. ;)

Another thing I also noticed when listening to the Cash and Donovan versions of the song is that they both seem to pronounce
Travis' name as "Travers".

I just finished watching the special features of Once Upon a Time in the West. One of the many people interviewed was John Milius (Conan the Barbarian, The Wind and the Lion, Red Dawn, Dillenger, to name but a few) and behind him propped up against the wall as the Music soundtrack album of John wayne's The Alamo. It looked like he was either in his study or his office. Cool. :D

Don't know if this Youtube video has been posted before. Interesting guitar variations of Dimitri Tiomkins score.

Rather nice treatment musically, but the absolutely asenine sound effects overpowering everything the guirarist could bring to his arrangements were finally more than I could take. Hope I didn't miss anything good toward the end, but I cut and run when he went into "In the Sweet By and By." :roll:

Somebody's probably already posted this, but if not, here's a version I found on youtube. From 1972, it contains some subtle differences here and there. An orchestral suite sort of thing:

There was another version of the Alamo soundtrack that came out during the very early sixties. I remember it had a photo of the Bracketville Chapel with no people in it. I think it was discussed here or on other Alamo forums. Can anyone tell me the artist who recorded this and is it available on the web?

You can probably still find a copy of the album on eBay.

Coinciding with the release of THE ALAMO, in 1960, reknowned Orchestra leader Tex Beneke did a tribute album called MUSIC FROM THE FILM THE ALAMO. What's neat about this record is that it contains selections from the film that did not apperar on the original Columbia release of THE ALAMO soundtrack.

The tracks, OLD MEXICO, REVERIE and SANTA ANNA'S VICTORY MARCH are incidental music that bore listening to the first time around. The track OLD MEXICO is the background music to the "Oh Davy, if you only knew Mexico..." scene. It was finally added to the extended soundtrack of THE ALAMO in 1990, I believe. While REVERIE is Crockett/ Flaca material, I cannot place the SANTA ANNA'S VICTORY MARCH cut. It almost seems inappropriate for THE ALAMO.

The other Tex Beneke cuts include both instrumental and vocal versions of BALLAD OF THE ALAMO, GREEN LEAVES OF SUMMER, TENNESSEE BABE and HERE'S TO THE LADIES. All in all, it is a fun record and an obviously loving tribute to both Wayne and his Alamo film by a proud Texan.

That's it Ned! it's good to see that familiar cover. I drove my Grandparents' neighbors nuts when I would visit or stay with my Grandparents. I would go over to the neighbors' house and ask to listen to this record. The neighbors were always very cordial and gracious in allowing me to sit alone in one of their back rooms to listen. It is the first Alamo record I ever heard and I thought it was the only one until my Grandmother and Grandad got me the Dimitri Tiomkin Album for my birthday probably so I would quit bothering the neighbors. Good memories all!

Ah yes, Mike, the cover photo showing the infamous truck (not a school bus) in the archway along side the chapel.

I got it from some guy in Brazil on eBay because I liked the cover art. The only Alamo cut is "Green Leaves Of Summer."

No, "Wonderful, wonderful! That-a was Chilly Wills singing "Here's-a To Tha Layduhs!"

Here's an Alamo song from Larry Patton and John Beland of Flying Burrito Brothers fame.
It's from their latest album, "Reach For The Sky" with Larry on vocals and John on guitars
and mandolin.

John Beland is a big Alamo fan from way back and a member of the Alamo Society.

Great photos Ned. They really bring life to the song and fit with the lyrics. I've had that LP for as long as I can remember. Thanks for dusting off my memories. I agree with Mo though, more spoken than sung so really a poem with chorus.

A wonderful side-note about My Fair Lady:

The Broadway show characters were originated by Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews -- who were both highly acclaimed for their performances. Then Jack Warner bought the rights to make the movie at Warner Bros. He cast Harrison in his role of Henry Higgins, but chose Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle over Julie Andrews because Julie had no screen acting experience, only stage (a very different technique) and he felt he needed a movie star, not a stage star.

Flash forward to the Academy Awards the year following the premiere of Warner Bros' My Fair Lady. The key Oscars went to My Fair Lady for best picture, Rex Harrison for best male star......... and Julie Andrews for best female star for Disney's Mary Poppins. Disney trusted Julie's talent to pull off a lead in a movie. When Miss Andrews made her acceptance speech for the award, she said, "I would just like to thank the man who made this all possible -- Jack Warner."
