This 2-CD set of the Orthacoustic Transcriptions, with the 1-CD "Symphonies of the Sage", contains  most of the best-known Nolan Spencer Farr songs. Neither set is complete. These are the Classic Sons of the Pioneers the way they sounded in the Charles Starrett movies, the songs they wrote for their 7 song folios. Highly recommended.
