I got an email fron Screen Archives with their "New & notable releases" and the first thing I see when I open up the mail is a very familiar, bearded face.

This is the first time ever that The Mountain Men has had a soundtrack release on CD. Some more information follows:

World premiere release of magnificent Michel Legrand score for tough 1980 western pitting Charlton Heston, Brian Keith against worthy Native American adversaries. Legrand anchors with gorgeous, wide-open main theme, painted in broad strokes with bright major key harmony in abundance. Nice trumpet fanfares judiciously sprinkled within theme is exciting, regal touch. But action is keynote! Composer writes what is most surely his busiest score, replete with incredibly challenging high brass figures, moto-perpetuo rhythms that seldom quit, orchestral fury to burn! Presentation of this most exciting Legrand work became possible only when Sony located mint condition stereo masters amongst various film elements stored within Chace Audio facilities. Great find! Fans of composer will enjoy both his soaring theme melody plus his dynamic action. And - with nod to important piece of film scoring artform now gone - Legrand finishes what he starts, brings entire score to close with powerful coda! No just walking off podium before work is done, no cut-and-paste editorial assembly and happily no unrelated songs... just a magificent orchestral finale actually composed as majestic wrap-up to score. Wow! Michel Legrand conducts.

The CD contains 13 tracks and is 49:41 minutes long.

Another, quite interesting soundtrack of Chuck's has been released.

Image

A mystery is solved! Intrada premieres two scores for same 20th Century Fox film, yet neither is in finished picture! Jerry Goldsmith fans know when composer is unavailable to score movie, final soundtrack from Andrew V. McLaglen western becomes compilation of selected tracks from earlier Fox/Goldsmith pictures including 100 RIFLES, RIO CONCHOS, MORITURI, STAGECOACH. But few fans know Lionel Newman actually re-recorded same selections at Fox with intention of using all-new recordings timed specifically for picture. Ironically, due to time pressure, famed music editor Len Engel and young Ken Hall instead end up cutting music for picture with actual original recordings, planned initially just as temporary placeholders while Newman newly-records same sequences. Even fewer fans know Leonard Rosenman actually writes complete score for film, long before Goldsmith music becomes involved! Tale of sadism and revenge with Charlton Heston, James Coburn is deemed harsh, unpleasant by Rosenman. With little sympathy for either character, composer focuses on tough landscapes, brutality inherent in story. Resulting music is harsh, brittle, full of tension, violence. Atonality abounds. Classic Rosenman! Only exciting finale ("End Titles") provides respite. Studio found score TOO reflective of grim movie, brought more accessible Goldsmith library tracks into play. Unusual Intrada CD offers both rejected scores: unused Rosenman score in stereo AND unused Goldsmith cues newly conducted by Lionel Newman in mono! Nick Redman, Mike Matessino produce, Matessino also offers insight into film production and troubled music history behind it. Leonard Rosenman conducts his score, Lionel Newman conducts Goldsmith score. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remains! - Intrada

These don't really count as "soundtracks", but I did get them for Christmas. My husband, who knows how much I adore Charlton Heston, got me the original radio broadcast of "The Naked Jungle" (recorded June, 7, 1954, with Heston and Donna Reed), and "Secret of the Incas" (recorded December 14, 1954, with Heston and Nicole Maurey). I was so surprised!!! They sound beautiful! Very clear audio with live audience reaction. If anyone wants to order these, you can do so from Movies Unlimited. http://www.moviesunlimited.com. You will find them in the soundtrack section. I have the DVD to "The Naked Jungle", of course "Secret of the Incas" is rather hard to find on DVD (at least here in America). The radio broadcast is nice to have. My husband is such a sweetie! :-)

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Now this is an awesome new release!

Image

Two movies from the Golden Age, both starring Charlton Heston, a double bill in the old style – well-made pictures designed solely to entertain.

The Far Horizons holds the distinction of being the only major motion picture made about the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Based on a fictional novel by Delia Gould Emmons, the film combined fact and fiction in its depiction of the two-year expedition. Heston played Lt. William Clark; co-starring as Captain Meriwether Lewis was Fred MacMurray. The director was Rudolph Mate, and the film was shot in gorgeous Technicolor and Paramount’s then-new widescreen process, VistaVision, by Daniel Fapp. And it has a terrific score by Hans J. Salter.

For a composer whose name is rarely included among the top composers for film, Hans J. Salter scored an amazing number of beloved horror and sci-fi films, including Man Made Monster, The Black Cat, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, Son of Dracula, House of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, This Island Earth, The Mole People and The Incredible Shrinking Man, but he was equally at home in every genre and wrote great scores for such diverse films as Hold That Ghost, Fritz Lang’s Scarlet Street, The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry, Magnificent Doll, The Reckless Moment, Against All Flags, The Black Shield of Falworth, Autumn Leaves, Hold Back the Night, Come September, If a Man Answers, and Bedtime Story, to name but a few from his extraordinarily prolific career. And he also scored a number of western and adventure films, including Bend of the River, The Far Country, Man Without a Star, Wichita and many others.

His score for The Far Horizons is a majestic beauty, with a wonderful main theme that gets plenty of variations, along with some great dramatic scoring. For this CD, we present all the surviving cues, which thankfully constitute most of the score. It’s movie music in the grand tradition – full-bodied, emotional, and filled with melody. The score is presented in mono.

Here’s the plot for Secret of the Incas: A legend says that the Inca Empire was destroyed by the gods when a starburst of gold and jewels was stolen from the Temple of the Sun many centuries ago. The legend continues that the empire will be reborn once the treasure is returned. Now, an adventurer is seeking the treasure, as is his nemesis. The adventurer wears a brown leather jacket, a fedora, tan pants, and an over-the-shoulder bag and revolver. Sound familiar? Can we say Indiana Jones? But this was 1954, and the adventurer was Harry Steele, played by Charlton Heston. Secret of the Incas was definitely an inspiration for the Indiana Jones series. It was and is a fun picture. Shot on location in Peru at Cuzco and Machu Picchu (the first major Hollywood film to shoot at those locations), with a great cast that, in addition to Heston, included Thomas Mitchell, Robert Young, Nicole Mauray, and the then very popular exotic singer, Yma Sumac. Helping to make it so much fun is the film’s musical score by David Buttolph.

Like Hans J. Salter, David Buttolph is a bit of an unsung film composer. Buttolph, over the course of his extremely prolific career, scored hundreds of films, including some pretty great movies such as This Gun for Hire, The House on 92nd Street, Somewhere in the Night, 13 Rue Madeleine, The Brasher Doubloon, Kiss of Death, The Enforcer, House of Wax, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, Phantom of the Rue Morgue, Long John Silver, The Lone Ranger, The Horse Soldiers, and PT 109. He also moved into television scoring, working on such series as Laramie, Wagon Train and The Virginian.

Buttolph’s score for Secret of the Incas is exotic and adventure-filled like the film. Because of Yma Sumac’s involvement, it was decided to use a piece of music that was from one of her albums, specifically “High Andes” by Moises Vivanco, which Buttolph uses sparingly. Otherwise, Buttolph has memorable themes of his own, underscoring all the adventure, romance and thrills. For this CD we present all the surviving film cues in glorious stereo sound.


Kritzerland is responsible for this awesome release and it can be bought here: http://www.kritzerland.com/horizons_incas.htm

It is scheduled for an early August release limited to 1000 copies, so get it while you can, people!

The Buccaneer is getting a sweet release by Kritzerland Records, who earlier this year released the double-score CD of Secret of the Incas and The Far Horizons.

Image

Kritzerland is proud to present a new limited edition release – the first complete release of

THE BUCCANEER

Composed by Elmer Bernstein

DeMille had had his greatest success by remaking The Ten Commandmentsfor Paramount in 1956, and so he decided that his next film for the studio where he’d toiled for so many years would be a remake of his 1938 film of The Buccaneer, this time in Technicolor and VistaVision. But by 1958, having prepared the film, DeMille’s health was failing, so he asked Anthony Quinn to direct (Quinn was his son-in-law at the time) and longtime friend and associate Henry Wilcoxon to produce. A great cast was assembled, including Yul Brynner, Charles Boyer and Claire Bloom. Charlton Heston appeared as Andrew Jackson. Critics were cool to the film and it didn’t light up the box office, but it managed to snag one Oscar nomination (for Best Costumes). But looking back at it today, the film is very entertaining, looks incredible and has an absolutely stunning score by Elmer Bernstein.

Bernstein had, of course, done the score for DeMille’s The Ten Commandments so he was a natural for The Buccaneer. He delivered a beauty of a score, filled with big and bold music and classic Bernstein themes. The “Main Title” begins with a wonderful Bernstein fanfare leading into a glorious and heroic theme, more fanfares, and then an exquisitely beautiful theme followed by more fanfares – it’s everything you’d want in a main title from a time when composers really knew how to set the tone of the film in its first minutes. The rest of his marvelous score is loaded with drama, romance and intrigue, all in the unique and colorful Bernstein style.

The Buccaneer was originally released on LP by Columbia Records and that LP program has had several CD releases over the years, all out of print. This is the first release of the complete score, taken from the three-track session scoring masters and the original 15 IPS three-track album master, all freshly transferred and sounding wonderful in full-bodied stereo. In addition to the complete dramatic score, we also present all of Bernstein’s source music cues, a couple of alternates, and some Bernstein piano demos.


This release is limited to 1000 copies, so get it while you still can here: http://kritzerland.com/buccaneer.htm
