Any opinions or recommendations of this score? Thanks.

With a great composer like GEORGES DELERUE it may start to sound redundant saying it is a fine score, a great score, but that only goes to show you how nearly always on the mark he was. This effort is another gorgeous, wonderful easy to listen to score. We have a lovely waltz, a haunting spiritual pretty theme, along with some solid cues along the way.Like always just sit back close your eyes and enjoy a master melody man who again picks the best notes and chords from the beauty garden of the universe. If he is in heaven, guess who will be the perfect composer to write heavenly music for the folks there.

I put together the original LP release - licensed it from Paramount for Varese and sequenced it and it's a score I really love. Amusingly, my name seems not to have made it to the CD release - I wonder why, since the "executive producer" got his name on it even though he had absolutely nothing to do with it EVER. smile

Was there more music? I have never seen the film.

What a wonderful recommendation dan. I reacquainted myself with Mr. Delerue the other day when I listened to Dien Bien Phu again. I happened upon this score and was unable to find any samples. I will definitely be considering it. Thank you.

Wow Bruce, that really stinks about the cd release. What difference would it have made whether lp or cd if the content and sequencing were the same and was your work? Knowing that you had a hand in it makes me more interested in giving it a spin. Thank you for the background info.

I think we used all of it for the LP but it's been thirty-something years, so I could be wrong. I have a back-up set of tapes somewhere and my memory is that we used all there was to use.

This is a great CD. I'd take it over typically numb bash-bash-bash, great-grand-choir-of-the-apocalypse crap any day of the week.

This score is actually made up of an old fashioned thing called 'music' and delightful it is too.
