OUT OF PRINT CD. Beautiful, nostalgic John Barry score finally receives long-overdue royal treatment on CD! Intrada premiered original 1975 London soundtrack album on CD in 2010, presenting the brief 31-minute program which offered 8 selections from Barry’s score plus period source music by various artists. New expanded Intrada release finally presents entire 34-minute John Barry score plus additional score alternates and unused music including three Barry songs, penned with his frequent lyricist, Don Black. As John Barry authority Jon Burlingame puts succinctly in his booklet notes, “nearly 48-minutes of vintage John Barry from one of the composer’s most creative periods.” Additionally, the film’s flavorful late 1930’s-era source music, much of it specially arranged and recorded for the movie by Barry, is also included on this generous 78-minute CD following the original score presentation. John Schlesinger directs this important 1975 film about down and out residents and players in Tinseltown, one of the darkest, most evocative and sobering movies about old Los Angeles ever produced. All-star casting includes Donald Sutherland, Burgess Meredith, William Atherton, Karen Black, Geraldine Page, many others. Famed screenwriter Waldo Salt (Midnight Cowboy) adapted Nathanael West’s literary masterpiece, Jerome Hellman produced. Barry fashioned one of his all-time most haunting, nostalgic themes using his trademark harmonic vernacular to anchor extremely flexible melody in tender sadness, then ushers it through variety of styles as picture needs required, from gently flowing flute over harp to full orchestra, from soft-shoe muted trumpet through intense, dramatic statements. In fact, climactic variant showcases Barry at his most dramatic with unusually intense scoring for surreal, grotesque climactic sequence. Complete scoring session elements provided courtesy Paramount Pictures yields much improved, richer audio quality than previously available on original record. 20-page full color booklet designed by Kay Marshall with notes by Jon Burlingame plus session dates, musicians and arranger details round out handsome package. John Barry composes, orchestrates, conducts. Intrada Special Collection CD available while quantities and interest remain! ---INTRADA
