I'd definitely add this on the shopping list for an upcoming Halloween party!

And very pretty, jazzy, as Komeda was the foremost of Polish jazz artists, and those Poles know their jazz, and have loved it for a long time.

Although there is a track named "Panic" the actual "Panic" cut is not at all included in this recording.

Recently, I purchased one of the CD soundtracks available for ROSEMARY'S BABY. I was rather miffed after discovering that the track listing titles are both out of order and completely mis-named. As some of the tracks were so similar, there was no way for me to "place" which part was which. The CD I purchased had both Komeda's scores for both ROSEMARY'S BABY and THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS. I looked at the customer comments, and was relieved to discover I was not alone in this confusion. So.... Last nightI went through the film scene-by-scene, and correctly placed the tracks in order. I also "renamed" the tracks, and have now put them in the proper order. So, for those who may be interested, here are the results of my little project:

TRACKLISTING ON CD AS IT APPEDARS [w/ misspellings and all -- and my retitling]:

1) Maine [sic] Title (2:30) = Main Title (Lullaby from "Rosemary's Baby") [version used in the film's opening]

2) The Coven (1:00) = Lullaby, Part I (Moving In - Montage)

3) Lullaby - part 1 (0.21) = The Coven Next Door

4) Moment musical (4:03) = The Nightmare ("This is no dream -- this is really happening!")

5) The Coven (2:09) = Music to Read a Book To / Music to Make a Baby To [this music used in 2 sequences; one where Rosemary is laying down on her sofa relaxing and is interrupted by Ruth Gordon; the other when she and Guy make love]

6) Moment musical (1:01) = Lullaby, Part II (Rosemary Is Pregnant)

7) Lullaby - part II (1:59) = Rosemary Throws a Party for "Their Old--I Mean Young" Friends ("You have to be under 60 to get in.

One of the most overlooked and underappreciated scores of all time, Krzystzof Komeda's powerful and chilling score for the film finally gets a CD release. The Lullaby, the films two part theme, is one of the most memorable of all horror film themes, featuring an uncredited Mia Farrow "La-La-La-ing". The theme is redone several times throughout the score, mainly in a light and pretty tone, which masks the darkness soon to come. Soon, the score turns tense and demonic, much like Jerry Goldsmith's later horror attempt, "The Omen". "What Have You Done To It's Eyes!" is a great track, capturing all of Rosemary's horror at what she has discovered about her baby. Not for all, this is a love it or hate it score, but I highly recommend it!

We were so broke when I was twelve that this is the only item I got for Christmas - the old $5.99 Dot LP version of Komeda's "Rosemary's Baby," that is, the score that, pretty much, ended his life(!). Not your normal kid.

Komeda died of an odd mishap in Hollywood shortly after he recorded this (at the same time the Manson gang went wack on Polanski's poor wife and her friends on Cielo Drive). Komeda was also very depressed at the lack of work that failed to appear after he had scored his Hollywood debut. Hollywood is like that.

So, uh, this is dark, dark music.

And very pretty, jazzy, as Komeda was the foremost of Polish jazz artists, and those Poles know their jazz, and have loved it for a long time. Anyone who has heard "Astigmatic" knows how talented and forward-looking a jazz artist Komeda was.

Is much of that reflected herein? Well, not a lot, really. But it is a score of cues, and, uh, well, interesting. "Moment Musical" is two minutes of dark, disquieting lounge, and I love it, and "Christmas" is sprightly, with an edge, of course.

Mia Farrow's vocalese on "Main Title/Lullaby" is haunting, eerie, heartbreaking; the melody is brilliantly simple, and masterfully orchestrated as well in the DOT records version by Neal Tipton as it is here (I think these are Komeda's actual studio tapes, not the versions re-orchestrated for the 68 DOT records soundtrack. They're fairly similar, anyway. Komeda supervised both sessions).

But be warned: there is something dangerous lurking in this soundtrack, something of its time and the misfortunes that surrounded Polanski and his comic/scary masterpiece. Pieces like "The Coven" and "Panic" get under your skin - the whole darn thing does.

I read the reviews for the 'Rosemary's Baby' Soundtrack (Import). What many fail to realize is that that soundtrack is totally incomplete. You get 11 tracks from Rosemary's Baby and the rest is from the movie 'Jack The Ripper'. If you want the real soundtrack.......This one right here is IT. 24 of the most chilling, frightening pieces ever recorded. Plus 2 rare studio versions of the Main Theme. Comapring this soundtrack to that other import you will notice that on the import version the titles are misplaced. For example. On the import version...'Dream' is apparently the Dream sequence with Rosemary laying on the bed and the coven gathered around her....not so with this soundtrack. Give it a try. I think you will agree that this is the definite soundtrack to the movie
