Received my Victor Young CD. Very enjoyable with marvelous music throughout. The sound for the "Appointment With Danger" is particularly good. Well worth the wait. September Affair and The Accused are quality scores too. A superb collection of great Victor Young music!
Only isolated disappointment is the relatively poor sound for the Prelude (and to a lesser extent the End Title) of "The Accused". Fortunately, the score's other tracks sound very good, but as the Prelude is the main orchestral presentation of the theme, it's a pity it has suffered in comparison to the rest. So for my listening, I've decided to prune the Prelude and program proceedings to start with Track 19 which is a nice cocktail lounge arrangement of the theme.

A tracklist question:

Track 7: Lonely Am I (Lilley) / Slow Bus to Memphis
Is that Joseph J. Lilley of White Christmas? I can't find anything on Google crediting him with a tune of that title.



I noticed that about THE ACCUSED as well. I wonder if, possibly, the original music session masters no longer existed for these two cues and Mr. Bruce has lifted them from something close to an optical film print soundtrack to add completeness to the score.

Incidentally, Mr. Young must have felt his major theme for THE ACCUSED was pretty good, because he re-recorded it for one of his compilation LPs in the 1950s. It was so familiar when I heard it again on this Victor Young Kritzerland CD.


We have what we have - sometimes one knows where what we have came from and sometimes it's just a big soup with a lot of music from a lot of different sources in varying sound quality.

This VICTOR YOUNG SOUP has a lot of meat in it and is very nourishing!!!

Thanks for bringing it to a boil for us, Chef Kimmel!!

Track 9 "The Boner" is immediately followed by "Regas Follows Nun".

I too noticed "The Boner" track. Maybe it meant something else in 1951? Hope so ......


even in the 1970s I think its primary meaning was to make a mistake- "I pulled a boner." And if you look it up in a dictionary, there's another meaning: "low-grade slaughtered animal." I dont know which applies here.

I havent received a shipping notification - do we get these from Bruce?

Intriguing track titles.

In any event, I'm enjoying the CD.



Informally, a stupid mistake is often referred to as "a boner."




Phew, that's a load off my mind ...... smile

Good to know.

I thought maybe Mr. Young had a sly sense of humor ....... smile

Wonderful CD!

Actually, I think the main and end titles to THE ACCUSED might have come from a film print of DETECTIVE STORY.

As Lukas is listed on the credits, perhaps he can shed some light on it.

I've listened to mine several times now with the Cocktail Lounge version of the main theme programmed in place of the bad-sounding Main Title and I actually like it that way. The dreamy "shimmers" at the outset of the next track then help to make a pleasing transition from the Cocktail Lounge main theme presentation to the score proper.

Hopefully mine will arrive within the next few days, I guess Easter has slowed the postal system down.

Glad you are enjoying the CD Niall. I've played it a lot. The music ranges from suspense to romance and everything in between. I too am looking forward to volume 2 Victor Young when ready. smile
