When I first saw the film from whence comes this soundtrack some thirty-odd years ago, I was "blown away" by Wazman's superb arrangements of the central theme. No less than eight distinct variations are featured here, each one similar yet, at the same time, unique.
With melodies reminiscent of the work of American legend Aaron Copland, Wazman has captured the essence of New England with his composition reflecting the region as well as the "goings on" of the story line.
A seamless blend of pathos, romance, and a bygone era, this is one of the most consistently satisfying recordings ever done for film.

This is the score you've been waiting for! Possibly Franz Waxman's best, certainly most lyrical movie score. Aside from the great main title them (made familiar by the '60's television show), the score is filled with a warmth and humanity missing from most of today's movie scores. This rerecording captures the quality of the original soundtrack, and includes some selections which didn't make the soundtrack album. Essential for any film music buff's collection.

I`m still giving the 5 stars to original soundtrack recording conducted by Franz Waxman himself. It is unsurpassed. The Talgorn version is lovely but it only lacks one very important ingredient:TENSION. Edward Powell`s orchestration is superb in bringing to life Waxman`s beautiful score. I`ve got some doubts. Can anyone enlighten me ? 1. Which are the two folk themes that Waxman borrow for use in the score ? 2. Talgorn`s version has the lovely Peyton Place theme for the End Credits - just curious: did 20th Century Fox use this arrangement for its famous 1964-1969 TV serial ? 3. I think RCA Spain incorrectly stated the timing for Track 1 as 1.35 when it is actually 10.40 as it combines the Main Title and Hilltop Scene. Incidently, if anyone has the original soundtrack LP (issued by Entracte in probably 1978), it has on the back cover, extensive track liner notes written superbly by Royal S. Brown, a noted film music. In future, if RCA decides to issue the complete
original soundtrack, Brown`s wonderful notes should be included. That would be perfect !critic and author.

Varese Sarabande presents a major event in film score history - "PEYTON PLACE" (1957) composed by Franz Waxman, is a triumph of an exceptional symphonic composition. Here, for the first time is the "Complete Original Motion Picture Score", performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conducted by Frederic Talgorn.
Waxman's first original Hollywood score was - "BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN" (1935) - then came "CAPTAIN COURAGEOUS" - "DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE" - "WOMAN OF THE YEAR" all for Spencer Tracy films - nominated for the Academy Award ten times and won twice-in-a-row for "SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950) and "A PLACE IN THE SUN" (1951).
The original soundtrack album released in 1957 contained 40:48 of Waxman's score. This CD has added "AFTER THE DANCE" - "SUMMER MONTAGE" and "LEAVING FOR NEW YORK", as well as the never before heard "END CREDITS", and has been sequenced in film order.
Franz Waxman knew how to make his music work for a film, and this album "PEYTON PLACE" is the example and achievement that gives dimension to story-telling.

I listened to this as a child. Later I saw the movie on television. You can almost visualized all the scenes as you are listening to the album. I have been looking for "Peyton Place" for ten years. My LP is scratched and was happy that Amazon had it on CD.

Yes. The Talgorn version has the End Title which is exactly that used by Lionel Newman for the TV series main title. The orchestration and arrangement is the same. How did I guess? The original TV version appears as item 29 on the TVT Records Television Greatest Hits Vol. 5.

I had a taped cassette with the original theme from Peyton Place on it. I was hoping to find the entire original score on CD, but I still can't find it. This may not be the exact score from the movie, but it's very close to the original and it is beautifully conducted. I still wish there was a complete album out with the exact score in the order it is used in the film. This will have to do. It is good though. They didn't louse up the main title or other themes as they do in other movie score recordings. Sometimes they make the music go too fast or too slow. This, however, keeps a nice steady pace just like the original.
