Format: Audio CD
Another in the excellent Morgan/Stromberg re-recordings of Golden Age film scores; wonderful film music that would be completely neglected except for their commitment to restoration and release of the work of a variety of composers. Herrmann, Steiner, Tiomkin and Alfred Newman and many others have featured in the team's restorations to full orchestral glory for posterity and our listening pleasure. They are here joined by the lesser known talents of Frank Skinner and Hans J.Salter, who scored many of the classic Universal horror films of the 30s and 40s.

Complete music written for Ghost of Frankenstein [45.02] and a shorter suite from Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror [14.29] are accompanied by a few other themes. The quality of the performance and production are at the usual high standards we expect from the team. Historically, the recordings of Universal Horror music may not be as significant as Casablanca or King Kong, but what enjoyment can be derived from listening to music that accompanied the monster lurching down the village streets and other classic black and white images from the genre.

The disappointing thing about this release is the absolute lack of information to accompany the recording. All the other Marco Polo and Naxos reissues of those releases I have seen have featured booklets with excellent information about the films, the composers, the music itself and the restoration. (Morgan/Stromberg have set up their own label Tribute Film Classics and their booklets are 32 pages long, packed with info.) The booklet for this CD version gives track titles printed so small that they are hard to read - and that is it! On the reverse of the insert is a photo of some Naxos Classical CD covers, but no content at all about the two films and the music.

Now several tunes from the universal golden horror/thriller time of the 1940s.The main soundtrack on this disc is H.J.Salters Ghost of Frankenstein.This is one of the best in the whole series.What about this re-recording?In one word..excellent.Both the conductor and orchestra are in top form here.This is the complete Ghost score;but we also have a 15minute suite from Sherlock Holmes and the voice of terror;Son of Dracula main title and two cues from Man Made Monster;all flawless;both in performance and selection.A must have CD for any fans of Holywood's golden age of film music.Very highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trust Stromberg and Morgan! 30 Oct. 2014
By herrmannfan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Very pleasing album overall. You can always count on John Morgan (reconstructionist) and William Stromberg (conductor) for a fine orchestral rendering of classic film scores. My only negative comment about these scores is that they just don't seem to be very musically compelling or memorable--unlike the music on other Morgan/Stromberg collaborations--e.g., House of Frankenstein, Charge of the Light Brigade, She, The Prince and the Pauper, Adventures of Don Juan, and their Bernard Herrmann scores (Fahrenheit 451, Mysterious Island, The Kentuckian, Battle of Neretva). I'm very pleased and thankful, though, to have these scores produced by people whose passion for the music is evident in the performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Universal Studios soundtracks 6 Jan. 2013
By James George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Ever since I started seeing the universal studios monster movies on tv I was always struck by the music soundtrack. They had all the elements to help the movie tell the story, it had passion or romance, thunderous drums or cymbals crashing in the acton scenes, flute or horn sequences to add cuteness to further emulate the story being told. When i discovered that there were actual soundtracks of the music on cd form i was skeptical but curious. My fears have been put aside, WIlliam Stromberg and company have done exteme justice to Frank Skinner and Hans J Salter's compostions and if you a fan of the music of those movies from the 30's and 40's you'll love how well they are played on these cds

5.0 out of 5 stars Way over the top! 8 Jun. 2000
By William Flanigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This music is far and away beyond being exceptional! Messrs. John Morgan and William Stromberg have yet again exceed their past triumphs (I have no clue how they keep doing this!). Where to begin? Perhaps, with some numbers: five stars (out of five) for restoration, arrangement/re-arrangement, and cue selection/editing; five stars for presentation (conducting and orchestral performance); five stars for recording and mastering; and five stars for the fascinating (and huge!) CD booklet courtesy of Messrs. Bill Whitaker and John Morgan (the photo on page 33 is worth the price of admission alone!). With a new orchestral venue and technical crew, Mr. Stromberg has once again "come into his own," acoustically speaking; the technical aspects of past recordings with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra has often been ham handed and uneven to the point of distraction. But the sound on these tracks is definitely 21st Century in quality! For those new to the neighborhood, just who are these two film composer folks--Frank Skinner and Hans J. Salter? Well, among other notable achievements, they saved many a Universal programmer during the late 30's and early-to-mid 40's (and very likely the studios's bacon to boot). When you view Universal's "second wave" of horror films even today, two things instantly grab your attention: the stunning photography and the inventive, pulsating music. "(These) pictures were a great challenge, because ... before scoring they didn't seem to have much fright about them or cohesion either. They'd screen one of those pictures for us without the music, and it would be nothing. The challenge was in creating the sense of terror and suspense, and that is something music can do. All the pictures we saved for them!" Mr. Salter is quoted as saying in the CD booklet. Like many of the film scores of Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Salter and Skinner's music transcends and is enormously superior to the films for which they composed. Until Messrs. Morgan and Stromberg got the bit in their teeth, Salter and Skinner's film scores had served to elevate fair-to middling films, but, in turn, it was the poor reputation of these movies that served to suppress vastly underrated film music! NONE of this music has ever been heard like it is presented here. The Universal studio orchestra had barely 40 players; this CD uses a full symphony. Also, Mr. Morgan was able to work extensively with Mr. Salter on restorations during the final year's of the latter's long life. To quote Mr. Salter once more from the CD booklet, the executives at Universal "never knew what they had" in the way of music talent. I strongly recommend that you don't make the same mistake. Latch on to this CD while you still can!
4.0 out of 5 stars He Cannot Die, Just Run For President. 31 Jan. 2014
By Captain Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Everything it should be, with good sound quality and a full orchestration. The "lady" says, "turn it off, you're scaring the children. We don't have any children.
I would have given it five stars but I prefer some other "Frankenstein" music to this. Movie music can be great. Check out the music of Heinz Roemheld, too. A definite "buy" for fans of Sherlock Holmes movies, even though Conan Doyle never actually wrote the story.
As and active singer of opera, I say, " let's have more movie music, please". Unfortunately, many of my favorites are non-existent.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sherlock and Frankenstein are music to the ears 21 Jan. 2013
By c.g. gilman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Very briefly let me say that if you are a fan of the Universal classics and you always loved the Skinner / Salter scores than buy this CD it is definitely worth it. William Stromberg and his orchestra have done a fantastic job recreating these scores. You can visualize every scene that is scored and relive the memories of those thrilling moments. So purchase this CD of The Ghost of Frankenstein and Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror. It is elementary.
