Western • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1991

Once again Smoke Jensen, a penny dreadful hero if ever there was one, takes up arms against a sea of troubles. Granted, it takes very little for Jensen to take up arms, but if you like two-fisted Western stories with a moral streak a mile wide, then you'll love this production. Though lacking some of the finer touches of later MOUNTAIN MAN recordings, we find here some rudimentary audio theater in the repetitious sound effects, appropriate enough for a story that is itself a bit primitive. Narrator Doug Van Liew has a broad range of Western character voices, though his attempts at female and foreign voices are considerably less able. This is not to slight Van Liew, for he is an able narrator, and no one is perfect, especially in the Old West--and none are bulletproof. D.J.B.
