With this series you are never sure what you are going to get, many are excellent original soundtracks, some like this one are not! In the mid seventies Leroy Holmes recorded a series of film scores, badly played and recorded using a small orchestra/band. This release is one such, Holmes name has been conveniently left off the cover. Source material for the CD was an LP, more problems UA pressings of this era were full of glitches, we get that on this CD.
On the positive side, its very cheap, and at the moment the only version of this music available. So there you have it. Know what you are going to get before you order.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good at all 20 Oct. 2016
By Joy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Not good at all. The arrangements were NOT the ones which was used in the film, and were not complete renditions of the themes. Also, some of the themes were missing. I particularly missed the bright, sassy music that was the background for Norman and Esther's Honeymoon Trip.
I don't blame the seller: He or she probably got stung as well. I've lacquered mine, and put felt on the bottom, and it makes a fine coaster for my coffee mug.... :-(

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have, but for diehard Steiner fans only 31 Jan. 2007
By Pope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Note: The product description is in error; this is NOT the soundtrack to the 1970s Barbra Streisand film.

This 1937 version of A STAR IS BORN boasts one of my favorite movie scores by composer Max Steiner. The film itself is one of the underacclaimed glories of Hollywood, and since it stands in the grossly imposing shadows of the two later remakes (1954 with Judy Garland and 1970s with Barbra Streisand), it receives little play 70 years after it was released. The film is now in public domain, however, and the DVDs are numerous (if you are interested in locating a DVD of the film, I recommend the Image edition).

This import CD on the Greek Membran label does not feature the original soundtrack of the film. There was no such thing as an "original soundtrack" album in 1937, and the film's audio masters are most certainly lost to time. There was a re-recording of the score that was released on United Artists LP in 1975 with an uncredited orchestra, and according to my research that is the recording heard on this disc. The track titles are exactly the same as on the LP and the track times are very similar. The sound on the CD is very good, not stellar, but good. It does have bootleg written all over it, though, and I would venture to say that it is, in fact, taken from a clean copy of the LP, simply given the fidelity and the minute surface noise I detect in a couple places. Not a huge gripe though, since like I said, the sound is very good.

It is nice to see this on CD, though it is not a "must have." Fans of the film and Max Steiner buffs will certainly want to pick it up if you find it for a good price, say under $15 or so. But if you never come across it life will go on, since any film score is still best enjoyed with the film.

UPDATE 8/18/2013: I picked up a copy of the 1975 United Artists LP of the score, conducted by LeRoy Holmes. After comparing the performance on the LP with that on this CD, I can confidently say that the CD is an imported bootleg transfer from the LP. An overall well-done bootleg, but a bootleg nonetheless! One additional gripe about the CD would be that it appears to be in mono, whereas the LP is in stereo and sounds glorious. I'd definitely recommend picking up a copy of the LP if you get a chance. It seems to be pretty easy to come across. On the other hand, my opinion on the CD has morphed into "take it or leave it". I think I'll leave it!
