Laurel Records proudly announces the release of Music From THE RIFLEMAN® Television Series composed by Herschel Burke Gilbert. The wildly popular Series ran from 1958 through 1963. Reruns continue to this day. Conceived, produced, and directed by the team of Jules Levy, Arthur Gardner, and Arnold Laven, the show gained a devoted following. Particularly popular was the music, which was composed by veteran Hollywood composer Gilbert who had earned 3 Academy nominations for his film scores. So popular was the music that Gilbert occasionally received more fan mail for his scoring than the show's star, Chuck Connors. This 2 CD set contains cues originally written for the series (including the original and revised end titles) remastered from the original audio tapes plus a bonus CD of extras, including selected cues from Gilbert's film scores used in the series, as well as vocals and extra materials not used on-screen. A 24-page booklet explains the history of the scoring and has lyrics to The Rifleman Song, which has never been heard before this release. Series video is available from LGLProductions (www.TheRifleman.net). This long awaited CD set of the original music is a must have for any fan of THE RIFLEMAN®.
