Product Description

CD Description

Unlike incidental music, which, ideally, must not divert attention from on-screen action, the sounds heard over the credits of a movie or television show are designed with the object of identifying a cinema film or television programme. The idea is to create a picture in the listeners' minds that associates music with visuals - sometimes lingering long after the film has been withdrawn from circulation or a TV series has ended. The most iconic themes can linger forever in our subconscious minds ready to bring back the associated picture at a split seconds notice when the fist bar of such is heard again, often years if not decades later. This sensory experience is witnessed most intensely when the programme in question and its theme are equally as impacting on our lives, and this collection brings together thirty three such gems, each one as relevant today as when first heard forty, fifty , even sixty years ago. Indeed the beauty of this collection lies not just in a nostalgic trawl through yesterday s soundtracks and themes sometimes long forgotten, it also epitomises a style of music which maintains a crucial influence in much modern sound. Featuring the extraordinary compositions of such giants of the film soundtrack as Bernard Herrmann, Elmer Bernstein, Henry Mancini, Anton Karas, Bebe and Louis Barron and a host of others, this compendium of cinematic music brings into focus the long standing link between the sonic and the visual which has been so impacting since the first time the two were synched together. Presented in deluxe packaging with fully illustrated booklet featuring extensive liner-notes by music historian Alan Clayson, this luscious collection will prove a must-have item for a huge cross section of music and movie lovers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Screen Freak 22 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With classic movie and TV theme tracks including some widely available elsewhere and some hard to find such as 'Creature From the Black Lagoon', 'Forbidden Planet' and 'The Day The Earth Stood Still', this is a must buy for any fan of cult film and television music. And with 33 tracks the album is excellent value.

I saw this while searching for something else and bought it on a whim. Although some of the themes areunknown to me, it is worth buying for the Bernard Hermann tracks plus the classic SF themes especially The Day the Earth Stood Still = absolutely brilliant and the authentic version. I got those sci-fi shivers listening to that track.

I will never have to look for a complication of 1930's and 1940's of thriller and horror Film Themes. The best of 33 tracks.
