After joining us for what turned out to be a full-blown Odyssey Interview, composer Carlos Rafael Rivera (currently earning widespread acclaim for his fine work on the Netflix miniseries The Queen's Gambit) was kind enough to stick around for an examination of the Goldsmith-scored Rawhide episode "Incident in the Middle of Nowhere." It's a dynamic, exciting effort that both foreshadows later western scores like Rio Conchos and offers an instantly memorable main theme. Employing his considerable skills as a musician and educator, Carlos takes your humble hosts David, Yavar, and Clark on a full-blown guided tour of the score's assorted themes and motifs, breaking them down for us in remarkable detail in advance of our cue-by-cue journey. So when you have three hours to spare, just click play, then let it keep rollin', rollin', rollin'.
