The release of the YEAR for me (and it would've been Quo Vadis? otherwise!) So beyond excited for this new Goldsmith series and this was a great choice with which to begin it. Can't wait to hear the 26 minutes of "new" Goldsmith.
Also happy to see that the theme arrangement for the LP recording was moved to the end so that the first track is the main title from the film as is proper!
Another fabulous project from Tadlow/Prometheus, hot on the heels of QUO VADIS. So unexpected, and so welcome. I always thought that the law of diminishing returns had caught up to us Golden/Silver Age soundtrack music lovers. But no! There's always something just on the horizon.
I'll join the chorus praising this one. A dynamic performance, crisply recorded, and a marvelous score. The "Red Pony" suite is excellent, too -- bad luck for James Fitzpatrick that Varese happened to release the full score before he could get this one out, but the suite features all my highlights in compact form, and it also beautifully played.
