The Randy Newman Songbook Vol. 2

While pondering whether to record a second volume of the Randy Newman Songbook, the two-time Academy Award-winning songwriter—honored most recently for “We Belong Together” from Toy Story 3—claims he took a practical, Hollywood movie-studio view of the situation: “The first one did so well that nowadays you might as well just ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

He was a horse too small with a half-blind jockey too big, owned and trained by a team of misfits straight out of Central Casting, but Seabiscuit was no mere legend. The film adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling chronicle has all the foundations of an American sports classic, and this marvelously nuanced score by veteran Randy Newman is one of its cornerstones. Ever personally leery of the public overenthusiasm for the "hero music" he composed for The Natural, Newman invests this Depression era sports drama with an altogether subtler range of musical emotions. To be sure, his mastery of melancholy Americana is never far from the forefront, from the gentle acoustic guitar flourishes of the "Main Title" to the fragile, self-performed solo piano of his "Seabiscuit" theme. But Newman manages to be at once more texturally adventuresome (via the Mariachi Reynas de Los Angeles' buoyant performance of "Le Tequilera" and the lugubrious bottleneck guitar folk-blues of "Call Me Red") and emotionally restrained, yielding one of the most wholly satisfying scores of his career. --Jerry McCulley

2.0 out of 5 stars Missing the good stuff March 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you're like me you buy soundtracks because you liked what you heard while watching the movie. If you appreciated the music during the first forty minutes or so of Seabiscuit then buy the CD; you won't be disappointed. The soundtrack contains pretty much everything up until that point. Opening credits, Howards bike shop, Frankies demise, the backwoods racetracks where Red Pollard gets his start and pretty much every scene at Agua Caliente, including the all female band at the Molino Rojo brothel. It's when the major characters come together that the soundtrack starts to fall apart. The stirring piece from Red and Seabiscuits first win together is nowhere to be found. Track 10 may be titled Reds First Win but it should be called Reds Second Loss since it's the music from their defeat to Rosemont in the Hundred Grander, a piece so out of context with the rest of the themes it was only used that once in the film. The anxiety ridden complement to the match race is missing. Track 14-The Derby (what Derby?) starts out like the match race but there is no slow build up of tension and no release into Seabiscuits main theme as in the movie; instead it goes into that horrid Hundred Grander theme again after a brief pseudo match race intro. The lovely little guitar bit played while Red and the Biscuit are trotting around the tree during their healing days is another notable omission. You'd think Track 20-A Nice Ride would be the emotional final race at Santa Anita but it's not. It's actually the end credits sans "If I Had A Million Dollars", unfortunately. Overall, this CD is not a good representation of what on film is an excellent soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars RE: trailer music August 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In each trailer for Seabiscuit I have seen, there seems to be 3 main themes I could pick out: the first I believe is from "Rudy" but not sure, the second I'm positive is from "Legends of the Fall" by James Horner, in my opinion one of the greatest scores of all time, and the third, I would agree with the other reviewers in saying "Medal of Honor" which is an amazing score for a game score.
As for the score for Seabiscuit... I would highly recommend it to any movie score lover. One of Randy Newman's best work and an outstanding film... one of my favorites.

4.0 out of 5 stars trailer music August 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I noticed one reviewer asked about the music in the trailer. I think I heard a few trailers that played music from the movie Rudy. Hope this helps. Also, I heard a Moby song in the movie....but it's not on this soundtrack. The song is "Everloving" off the Play CD, and I think it is played during Seabiscuit's first win.

5.0 out of 5 stars trailer music August 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
People who were asking about the music in the trailers -- Music you hear in the trailer for a movie is rarely (if ever) the actual music for the movie. This is for two reasons -- (1) the music hasn't been mixed and recorded yet, so it isn't ready when the trailer is ready for theatres, and (2) if the music is finished, it is likely that the copyrights haven't been completed so they won't be able to release the music with the trailer. That's why you'll often hear the score from a familiar movie on the trailer of a new movie. Hope this helps. And Seabiscuit is a wonderful movie with great music!

1.0 out of 5 stars MISSING all the good songs ... I feel ripped August 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
No where is the song when the horse and Red are rounding the tree after healing. The emotional parts when the horse wins at the races is not there. The best of the movie is not even on the SOundtrack.... Very disappointed. I feel ripped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the music for the film
I believe some of the best music are soundtracks from films, and this is one of them. The music syncs well with the film's various moods. This is a keeper.

The guitar segment near the end of the movie greatly resembles "Far Away" a song perormed by Marty Stuart and used in the movie "All the Pretty Horses".
