"The Chase to the Airfield" is a 3 minute piece of pure film music bliss. I have been known to repeat it during listening sessions of this album.

Cheers
Chris

I'll tell you what, Carson smile first I'll Escape from the Castle and then I'll join you in The Chase to the Airfield, thus getting the best of both worlds. big grin

I suppose we could chase to the airfield and then escape from the castle?
Might get a bit confusing.

But as long as we can machine gun some Alpine Korps out of the window of the bus, blow up a bridge or two and crash into some planes...and I get to let Ingrid bite me along the way, then I'll be happy.

I'll go along with you up to the Ingrid Pitt part, but after seeing her in Vampire Lovers, I ain't so keen for her to get her teeth into my neck.

But the rest, bring it on, now where's my STG 44.

This is just a non sequitor, but are there any Salter/Skinner fans amongst the Goodwin appreciators? Or do the twain never meet, in which case I shouldn't bother mentioning this? But I just bought WHERE EAGLES DARE/OPERATION CROSSBOW, never having seen either film nor heard either score, and I was suddenly struck by the last thirty seconds of CROSSBOW's track #3, (beginning at 1:34) -- which suddenly sounds exactly like something that Salter or Skinner could have put into something like GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN...

Anybody else out there hear this kinship?

Now that it's winter and Holidaytime, there's nowt better than watching Nazis buy the farm, especially in an ace and fun film like Where Eagles Dare. I saw this version of the main theme on youtube and thought it sounded ace. Does it often get played, i wonder, in concert?

Ron goodwin used to play eagles dare regularly with his orchestra at his south coast concerts, along with 633 etc.

I thought the cable car sequences were unique, until seeing Edge Of Eternity recently (and the lovely Victoria Shaw.)

The two pieces of suspense music, one with the percussion the other without, are the kind of revelatory finds you wouldn't ever know about if you never came this way.
