. . . But it's a review of Rozsa's "Time After Time," right?

--Not completely irrelevant to the subject of this thread, of course.
In fact, the two films (and scores) might make a good "double feature."

Sorry. I put it in the wrong thread - early morning in the UK and I was still half asleep!

At last, finally ordered. I have the DvD and seen the movie loads of times. It will be interesting to see how the score alone tingles and tangles. Always liked the way Garcia scored the moment when George gets spooked in the forest. The sound effects were integral to the sequence.

My favorite is when George first shows us the time machine. Russ make it magical.
If you play the scene without his music, it's nothing.

This is a marvelous score from an iconic science fiction picture. It's certainly one of producer George Pal's best productions. For that matter, the cd release is one of LK'S as well.

Agreed. It's a fine example of a movie and it's score as supreme examples of the excellence of the craft - as it was.

My long time favorite FSM release...

This movie is blended with charm. I saw it when I was 10 on a white&black TV screen and it haunted me for years...

If someone among the boarders owns a piano sheet music rendition of the theme and is able to scan it into PDF I would be the happiest man...

I know a piano sheet music got released at the time but I don't know if it was the "Rozsaesque" Main Theme or the unforgettable "London 1900" theme, one of the most beautiful theme ever composed to express nostalgia.

One of my favorites. Glad i picked this up a while back. Such a good score and the liner notes are great!

I'm listening to this CD through a decent pair of headphones right now, and it sounds like it was recorded the day before yesterday. A thematically rich and downright gorgeous score with some really quirky and fun orchestrations, The Time Machine is, if you'll pardon the pun, timeless. The movie is good fun, too.

It'd be cool to see track 13 (Morlocks/Fight/Escape) sync'd up with the clocktower scene from Back to the Future.

I swear we were separated at birth. That sounds like such fun. LOL

I've recently bought a few CD's in an effort to update my iTunes library with the expanded versions of applicable albums, and I got to The Time Machine.

The re-recording on GNP's label was one of the first CD's I owned, and The Time Machine itself is the first movie that made me consciously realize that film score music was what I enjoyed most, so this movie and its soundtrack have a very special place in my heart.

That said, since I own the original CD, how much would users recommend FSM's CD? I notice that it's only 10 minutes longer, but since the original CD is about 40 minutes, that extra ten minutes is like another 25% of music, which seems like a considerable chunk.

A month later, I decided "Why the hell not, it's not expensive" and gave FSM's The Time Machine a shot.

It really does seem so very different from the rerecording I owned for years. The differences are very subtle, but enough that a clear comparison can be made, and I just love it!

I really love the sound quality as well, but that's no surprise from this label. I'm about 7 years too late, but FSM, thank you so much for this wonderful recording one of the dearest film scores to my heart!
