One additional note that this appears to be CD-R media. There is actual studio noise noticeable in track 11, which we likely don't hear when the film is playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go for these Guns! 29 Dec 2013
By Tomlan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An excellent CD release of the 1960s Philips/CBS original soundtrack album. Just one gripe; and I've had it since the LP. Why did they separate the music after the opening narration? In the film, when James Robertson Justice had finished speaking there was a drum beat into the main title - on the album this was put on a later track. This has been repeated on the more recent expanded CD, which I also bought. A minor detail I know, but the opening in the film's main titles was quite impressive. On these recordings, a bit of a damp squib.

Don't be put of though. If you want to relive this exciting film from Tiomkin's music perspective it comes highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Tiomkin's best scores. 4 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I remember buying the LP back in the 1960s and played it constantly. At that time I came to admire his music and my love was enhanced after hearing the scores for the Alamo, Fall of the Roman Empire and Giant. One of Hollywood's great composers!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Guns of Navarone 17 May 2013
By Rance A. Nethken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Being an avid collector of OST recordings, this one IS the OST of Tiomkin's well known music for one of the greatest war movies ever created! I originally bought the vinyl recording in 1959, and of course being there is only 13 tracks, it is to bad that soundtracks were not really in vogue then; hence, the studios only created a few "choice" tracks! Today, there is another version of TGON that contains that contains 22 tracks that was performed by the Praque Philharmonic Orchestra on Tadlow Label. Though the latter is quite good, it does not have the full richness of the original version by Tiomkin. I would think that Columbia Studios would have all of the complete tracks of the 1959 score. Hopefully they will someday release the complete version!
5.0 out of 5 stars The sound of the guns... 20 Feb 2014
By D. S. Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Alistair MacLean's excellent and still very readable 1957 novel "The Guns of Navarone" was a thrilling story about a group of Allied commandoes sent on a desperate mission into the German-held Greek Island of Navarone, there to sabotage a pair of high caliber naval guns. The story was in due course transformed into an excellent and critically acclaimed 1961 movie, starring Gregory Peck, Anthony Quinn, and David Niven. The movie included an excellent movie score composed by Dimitri Tiomkin, which was nominated for an Academy Award. That music has been put out in a couple of different products over the years, but this CD is the original movie score. The quality is good and the score will certainly be memorable for fans of the movie. Recommended.
