Editorial Reviews

22 tracks. THE RED SHOES is a 74 minute collection of rare original soundtrack recordings from the classic films of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (The Archers), made between 1941 and 1951. Those featured include: 49th Parallel (1941) Ralph Vaughn Williams (aka The Invaders) Stairway to Heaven (1946) Allan Gray (aka A Matter of Life & Death) The Life & Death of Col Blimp (1943) Allan Gray A Canterbury Tale (1944) Allan Gray / JS Bach Black Narcissus (1947) Brian Easdale The Red Shoes (1948) Brian Easdale Gone to Earth (1950) Brian Easdale (aka The Wild Heart) The Small Back Room (1949) Brian Easdale Tales of Hoffman (1951) Jacques Offenbach. As well as digitally restored original soundtrack music by the undervalued Gray and Easdale, this carefully researched CD also features a number of rare associated recordings, including John Gielgud's reading of An Airman's Letter to his Mother (1941), the lively quickstep Commando Patrol from Col. Blimp and A Canterbury Tale, and a superlative rendering of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, recorded by Albert Schweitzer in London in 1935, also featured in A Canterbury Tale. The booklet features detailed notes on the films and their accompanying scores, and well as biographies of Allan Gray and Brian Easdale. The CD is a must for all with an interest in vintage film soundtracks and British light/orchestral music, as well as the dazzling vision of Michael Powell and his musical collaborators.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original Performances - Dreadful Sound Quality March 6, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It's too bad that these original tracks from the Powell & Pressburger films couldn't be cleaned up and digitally re-mastered.

The music is terrific; the sound quality is not. It sounds as if someone put up a tape-recorder to the television while playing the movie, it's that bad.

This was an MP3 download and hopefully someone will re-issue the Easedale score to "The Red Shoes" with a new recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Complement August 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great album for Powell and Pressburger movie fans (which I am)! Much of the great music associated with the films. Would have liked to have heard more of certain movies such as "Canterbury Tale" and incidental music for "Red Shoes", however, the CD liner explains much and why some music just is not available. WARNING: some music is not remastered due to the problems noted in the liner but they do have a tendency to add to the charm of the CD!

Excellent value for the money!

When I was in High School, this wonderful movie was shown in my town. I still love it, have the DVD and short piano score for the music. The film is even better in Blue Ray.
