ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Promontory was composed by award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold for filmmaker and producer Ken Verdoia's KUED PBS documentary, Promontory (2002).

"On May 10, 1869, two steam locomotives chugged across a barren landscape in northern Utah until they stood nose-to-nose. A crowd converged, and within minutes the event was frozen in time as one of the most familiar images of the American West. The competing arms of the transcontinental railroad had been joined at Promontory Summit in the Utah territory.

But just beyond the photographic images of East meeting West in Utah is a more controversial story: A little known story of the people who built the final stretch of the rail line; of hard fought negotiations between railroad executives and the legendary Brigham Young; of broken promises that created economic chaos and destroyed lives.

PROMONTORY is the first television documentary to explore the convulsive events that played out in Utah before and after the momentous Golden Spike Ceremony that signaled the completion of the world's first transcontinental railroad. Produced by KUED Senior Producer Ken Verdoia, PROMONTORY offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of an event that redefined both the nation and the state of Utah."
