Wow, this is unexpected, but judging by the sound samples, the whole disc is in stereo yes?
Been looking for something to buy so I can finally get Man Woman and Child and this may be the one (two Delerues at once? Never a bad thing...)

Edit: Oh derp, it even SAYS that doesn't it....

I know a certain Delerue fan who's gonna have himself a heart attack when he reads this.

This one sounds quite interesting. I've never heard either of these scores, but I'll take a chance on this CD. Although there are indeed enough French TV movies and mini-series to fill future volumes, I still hope one day that some of the U.S. productions like AMOS and QUEENIE will see the light of day too.

I see you want to buy the soundtrack for "Man, Woman and Child." I just watched that movie yesterday via Netflix mainly to see what I thought of the soundtrack, and wrote the following Netflix review:

"The only reason I put this movie on my queue was because I am a fan of composer Georges Delerue, who wrote the music for it, and the complete soundtrack was recently released on CD and I wanted to see if I should buy it. But what an ordeal it was to sit through this, and I mainly blame the director for the flat way too much of it is handled. As for the music, we can barely even hear it, and then there's a vocal arrangement of the theme sung at the end in an (appropriately!) inept fashion that made me glad I didn't buy the music. I would have given this movie the 1 star minimum were it not for the mostly well-written character portrayed by Sheen, and I like the way the father looks at education. But those are meager crumbs indeed for a grim movie I never care to watch again."

I notice that the CD has the song heard at the end during the final credits, but which I found simply agonizing -- it has lyrics (by David Pomerantz and Buddy Kaye) like: "Love was just a MOMENT, holding tight TOGETHER, just a fleeting MOMENT, changing us FOREVER" -- simply agonizing treacle (with words at the end of lines emphasized like that) that should have been left on the cutting room floor. Frankly, if the music for a movie is good, I'd prefer to hear that instead of a song tacked on at the end. But, despite everything, I'm still curious about that soundtrack CD.

Now this is the type of Delerue that I really like: completely new music that I have never heard before!

ORDERED!!!

Hopefully this look into Delerue's television work includes the television films he did in the 80s.

Can Wait!!!

It depends on how this first volume will sell...

Darn it Music Box, I wish you'd wait til I had more money before releasing these Delerue titles!smile His lush orchestral music makes any new CD with his name on it a must-own in my book. I'll have to grab this before it sells out.

With 750 copies, this one won't last long...

Fantastic release and can't wait to see what's coming next in this series smile

I've heard the main theme for Les Visiteurs on one of the Tele Tubes discs. Not the kind of thing you'd associate with Delerue, and that's not a complaint.

Great. So if you hated it so much you don't have to buy it and then someone else who loves the score and Delerue will have a chance to own it.

It was a great surprise for me too.
I will soon order this one, together with Man, woman and child !
With this two ones, we have Delerue CDs which are over 40 minutes, good news.

I follow Delerue since a good time, and I pick up with pleasure what I consider as the best for me. A lot of material is still to be published.

Congratulations, Music box, after House on Caroll street and Il conformista/La petite fille au velours bleu !!
And it is only the beginning, seeing what they plan...
His music for TV has great qualities.

Patrick
