you should also check out the version of his soundtrack for Fonda's "Idaho Transfer" that someone online has cobbled together; recording the music with accompanying incidentals and dialog directly from what must be a bootleg of the movie. it's not as plaintive and moving as "The Hired Hand" but it has its charms and being a sci-fi flick the music has a different pallet but the same hand.
this however might be the most perfect soundtrack ever recorded and just some of the plain best, and expressive music around. sometimes it's too much for me, but when it is right is so sublimely right. beautiful, beautiful. i would have loved this as a kid but i'm sure it might have overwhelmed me with emotion. it almost does now. this soundtrack is like a secret handshake; i'm surprised when it appears and with whom.
