The Charles Gerhardt LP series of re-recordings of classic golden age film scores was one of the most admired filmmusic undertakings of the 1970's. The albums featured phenonemenal sound quality and exquisite musical performances.
At some point (in the 1980's?), the series was released on CD. However, film music experts felt that the CD's did NOT improve the sound quality at all.
This latest CD resissue of the series, however, restores superb sound quality to these recordings. Knowledgeble collectors feel that this latest reissue restores the majesty of those long-ago vinyl treasures.
The Bernard Herrmann volume features stunning renditions of cues from CITIZEN KANE, BENEATH THE 12 MILE REEF, ON DANGEROUS GROUND, HANGOVER SQUARE, and the elusive WHITE WITCH DOCTOR. Whether you're new to the wonders of Bernard Herrmann, or simply upgrading from the previous disappointing CD release, this recording will occupy an important place in your filmmusic collection.
