AllMusic Review by

Warm, emotional Americana on a great-sounding disc. The Flim-Flam Man features harmonica, banjos, and honky tonk piano mixing with strings and brass for a decidedly comic Western feel. Catchy main title theme receives many joyous variations. More serious score for A Girl Named Sooner demonstrates Jerry Goldsmith's ear for drama. Harmonica again plays a central role, representing the simple roots of the main character, while string and harp passages highlight the more tender and melancholy moments.
