Burtis Bills' Sounds of the American West

241 Western Sound Effects as a Download

The Sound Effects and Ambience of the AMERICAN WEST... When the West was young and life was simple, when the sounds of a crackling campfire or a lone cowboy whistle could cut through the cool morning air, a young boy and future sound recordist named Burtis Bills listened. And learned. Bills noticed the sounds of a steam locomotive passing through the depot west of town on a cold, rainy night. He loved it all -- from rails clinking and clacking, to the hollow whistle blaring. But when the new trains moved in and changed the sounds of his small town, he grew nostalgic. He wanted to capture those sounds: the ones that reminded him most of the Old West as he remembered it.

Now, for the first time ever, the sounds of Burtis Bill's Wild West are available to you. Originally digitally recorded on 4 CDs, this library is currently available as a Download. Travel with Bill through the wild western frontier of Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and Wyoming as he captures the sounds of the untamable frontier.
