Alrighty, I've been strongly recommended the SAE recording of this piece (and was smiling extra wide when I checked out the samples). I've actually read such kudos about this CD as "maybe even the best score Newman ever did" and to that I say "WOW"!

There's also apparently a link between this score to Alfred's other (amazing) work for "spiritual" films. Which makes it even more attractive to me, as I adore Keys of the Kingdom, GSET, Song of Bernadette, the Robe.

I see there is another release of the score besides the SAE (actually two, the tsunami and I believe the same import company that released Rozsa scores like All the Men Were Valiant and Blood on the Sun).

I'd love to hear everyone's input on this, and please accept my gratitude in advance.

Longer answer later if I have time but (and this is always true) the SAE is always the way to go.

I agree the SAE is the ticket. This CD contains the original tracks conducted by Newman as well as some extras. The recording is in stereo and sounds remarkably good given the age of the recording.

Some trivia..... Newman lifted the love theme from an earlier score he wrote for the film THESE THREE.

Our CD is in true dual-angle stereo. Have no idea about the b**t.

FYI the Tsunami CD is a Euro, grey market b**t, inferior to the authorized SAE release.

This was one of my most delightful of several challenges (read book, discuss book, see film, discuss film and music, often purchase soundtrack). Lots to talk about.

Really cool! I so want that "The Power"...it seems I spend so much I never get around to getting that Rozsa Treasury (arrgh).

Now I want to see the movie.

A glorious score indeed.

The theme that accompanies Larry “finding himself”, on top of the mountain was later adapted and used for the Main Title of the 1959 Bing Crosby,Debbie Reynolds,Robert Wagner movie - “Say One For Me”
and is on the soundtrack album.

CH CD you are right about Say one for Me, but according to Ken Darby, Lionel Newman just played the unused Intermission Music written for Razors Edge.
