I liked this one - it makes me pine more for the days of FSM, and especially their "subscription club" - sign up and get everything automatically delivered.
This was a title I never would have gone out of my way for, sorry!, even though I enjoy Kaper's work, thanks to FSM & especially their fantastic MUTINY release. Glad it landed in my archives - too bad we're so oversaturated now, my film score dollars have to be used more cautiously. Or maybe I'm getting more selective in my old age....
Very nice scoring here, mellow but not melodramatic or over the top if I recall, its been awhile. I remember the atmosphere is nicely reserved & I used to b-side this album with Al Newman's THE BEST OF EVERYTHING - played that title a ton just a few years back. Both (or all three scores actually) were very nice 'city music' in my mind. I always want the lil' woman to bring me a martini & slippers when I get in and put this disc on. Oink, oink, yeah yeah..... ;-) Thanks for the reminder, I'll unearth this one tonight I think!
I think I picked this up on a Bronislau Kaper sale for $14.95 at some point. I too was very pleasantly surprised, and I immediately recognized the main theme from Invitation -- no idea where I'd heard it because I never saw the film, but it was a familiar (lovely) melody somehow.
