What is this music? It's beautiful? Whether it is just background to a dinner party or a quiet time when you're soaking in the bath or infromt of the fire.... This is really "feel-good" music. Enjoy!

This is not the original version of the soundtrack written and conducted by John Barry for Out Of Africa, but a 1997 re-recording by Joel McNeely and the Royal National Scottish Orchestra.

In my view, it actually beats the (very nice) original recording. When I want to listen to the soundtrack, I listen to this recording, and not the original. It also benefits from having a couple of extra cues, and misses the dreadful pop song from the end of the film.

Don't be fooled by Julian's (Peck)review of this release, whilst the John Barry original is undoubtedly fine this is the better recording and more rewarding version. The RSNO (one of the great European Orchestras) under McNeely excels.

"Out Of Africa" was nominated for 11 Oscars, including Sound and Original Score. This recording by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra is nearly identical to the 12 song `official' soundtrack. However, there is an additional seven minutes of music, including the complete Adagio from the Mozart clarinet concerto and some miscellaneous traditional music that was omitted from the film. The sweeping drama is still here and I see little difference between the Original and this recording other than seven minutes. It's a toss-up, but each one will not disappoint.

I saw the film years ago, and it's one of those films that leaves an imprint on your memory - superb acting by Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, against a breathtaking background, of a time and lifestyle gone by - and the music just adds that depth to the experience. Listening to the tracks now just brings it all back to me, nostalgic as John Barry's scores often are, with that wide-open-spaces and epic quality. Fabulous!

This is one of my all time favourite soundtracks. It has a certain epic quality and romance which brings you very much back to the wide angle scenes of the movie and stays with you even after you've stopped listening. It is also quite varied, so you don't need to worry about too much repetition. I highly recommend this one if you're a romantic!

Barry has a unique gift to be able to carry the listener into the world of the 'mental traveller' as Karen would say.

Out of Africa has long been one of my favourite films so discovering this CD has been a delight.

As there was only 27 mins of music in the film, a lot of which is based on the haunting main theme, the record is somewhat basic. Even then the record has apparantly an extra piece of music on it added by ??? to make up the time, To me this is not in keeping with the theme and is a waste of time. I would much have prefered a differant rendering of the main theme or even something else by John Barry.
Either way it is a very moving piece of music which nearly brings me to tears each time I hear it & I have not seen the film. Noddy.
