The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters Theme

The pre-Donny Osmonds sang the theme and occasionally appeared on the  short-lived but well-remembered TV series from the early '60s called THE TRAVELS OF JAIMIE McPHEETERS. The series starred Dan O'Herlihy as a classy father with a drinking problem in the old west. He and his son Jaimie, well-played by young Kurt Russell, eventually end up on a wagon train where generally well-written anthology type stories took place week after week. Charles Bronson becomes the wagonmaster about halfway through the series. The Osmonds' appearances, doing barbershop quartet style harmonies, were somewhat anachronistic highlights. They were obviously a favorite of the Brothers Gibb in Australia as they adopted that style and even recorded a version of this song.
