Product Description

'Seven Wonders of the World' is a 1956 film in Cinerama about the Wonders of the World. This is the first time on CD for the unique sound track of the movie mixed from the original tapes.

With music by three composers - Emil Newman, who also conducted the Cinerama Symphony Orchestra for the sound track, David Raskin and Jerome Moross, the music is varied and dazzling.

Format: Audio CD
This is Sepia’s third release in their enterprising series of Cinerama Soundtracks, following on from ‘Windjammer’ and ‘Cinerama Holiday’. Seven Wonders differs from the other two in that whereas they had a single composer for their scores – Morton Gould – this time there were four; Jerome Moross, Emil Newman, David Raksin and Sol Kaplan with Newman taking on the conducting job.

As a curtain raiser, Sepia start the disc off with the two pieces from the score (The Holy Land/ The Mediterranean) that were newly recorded for Silva Screens’ Jerome Moross compilation ‘The Cardinal’. A modern digital recording, these two pieces are well matched by the the sonic splendour of the original soundtrack (originally on 7 channels) when the ‘Seven Wonders’ theme bursts forth, the wide stereo image crisp and clean (Listen to it through headphones for the best effect).

Unlike the two previous discs, the composite soundtrack has been used this time which means we get a few sound effects and producer Lowell Thomas’s stentorian narration as well as some abrupt edits. The narration may put some people off but it really works, in fact it adds to the whole experience and is not the least intrusive. We only get some 35 minutes of the soundtrack score but what is there is choice (The exit music which uses the Rio theme will have you dancing around the room!).

Rounding off the disc are two promotional discs that were produced at the time of the film’s original release in 1956. The first is a mono ten inch disc from ‘Admiral High Fidelity’ which contains a small amount of music (not all of it from the film) but has a lot of effects (elephants, trains, etc) and a narration from someone who sounds uncannily like the late Bob Monkhouse.

For those who appreciate nostalgia this is a good reminder of the old Cinerama movies.

Not enough music but worth having 21 Jun. 2014
By Gary A. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although the music on this CD is wonderful most of it is marred by the continual narration of Lowell Thomas. I kept wanting to shout "Shut up and let me hear the music!" Thankfully a re-recorded suite of some of the score composed by Jerome Moross has been included. There are some brief passages without narration (Entr'acte and Exit Music) but be prepared that there isn't much music on the CD without narration over it.

Audio Cinerama Memories 5 Aug. 2014
By Michael Siebielec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Very happy with this album. Although most of the score includes Lowell Thomas' narration, there is a nice suite of the music written by Jerome Moross. It's great to have anything available from the old Cinerama movie.

This outstanding CD is a long overdue tribute to the composers, participants and producers of the excellent Cinerama music catalog.

Album presentaton could have been better 28 July 2014
By Joseph P. Durham, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am very much disappoined in the sound track album of this motion picture. 7 Wonders is one of those 1950's Cinerama presentations which literaly went all over the world to seek out the so-called seven wonders of the world. The DVD of the film itself has not been released yet but it is one I am really anxiously awaiting. This album didn't even have the original overture or main title music in it, and had more than one track with the original Lowell Thomas narration. Good as Thomas was, I would rather any soundtrack album of this score not have it, and I believe with the technology available nowadays it could easily have been done without. If this restoration job is as good as some of the other movies in the series have been, we're in for a real treet because I believe this was one of the best. just forget about getting this particular soundtrack album though.
