Silva Screen Records Ltd presents "THE INDIANA JONES TRILOGY - NEW RECORDINGS" -- Nic Raine has total understanding of the action cues with the thrilling counter-love-themes blending in whenever and wherever needed --- John Williams is widely known for all of his film scores, this one has to rank among his best --- From the memorable main theme "THE RAIDERS MARCH", to the touching "MARION'S THEME" filled with the tender meeting between Indy and Marion that will linger in our minds forever.
If you are a big fan of Spielberg, Lucas, John Williams or Nic Raine with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and chorus, then my friends of "The Indiana Jones Trilogy", you've come to the right place --- Get ready for action, adventure and an all around good time as we visit Doctor Indiana Jones and the film scores he has left behind.
Spielberg and Williams collaboration is always faithful to the storytelling, thus we have the 1984 "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom", opening with a classic Cole Porter tune of "ANYTHING GOES", with a fine vocal interpretation from Helen Hobson. And who can forget the "MINE CAR CHASE", with the brass sections blaring as the percussion answers the beckon call --- Let's listen to the arrangement of "FINALE & END CREDITS", from Temple of Doom The City of Prague arises to the occasion --- This is where the "new digital surround sound" from Silva demonstrates quality film music from your own personal music system.
Outstanding performance in the opening "INDY'S FIRST ADVENTURE", from "The Last Crusade" gives the musicians a work out, that they must thoroughly enjoy. >From this suite we hear the clarity of "FINALE & END CREDITS", over eleven minutes of of incredibly addictive film scoring---some powerhouse brass explodes from your speakers, spilling all over the room --- Thus we hear action scoring at it's finest hour --- Exciting action cues with bouncy woodwinds and bold brass fanfares abound.
This album contains some of the best of selections of the series --- It may not be as complete as we would have it, but this my "film-score-buffs", is the ultimate in the life and times of our hero ~ INDIANA JONES --- As Silva Screen stays true to the spirit of all the fans of the cinema and the music that makes us laugh and cry --- please stand up and take a bow for this well deserved rare gem you've given us --- this is a keeper!
