Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This independent documentary soundtrack is the final work of late guitarist Chris Michie, who became a session guitarist in 1972, recording with such notables as Van Morrison, The Pointer Sisters, Link Wray, Jerry Garcia, Stevie Wonder, and Jesse Colin Young. Chris also toured the world with Columbia Records artists Lamb, Van Morrison, Maria Muldaur, Boz Scaggs, and The Pointer Sisters all throughout the '70s and '80s. It was while touring and recording in Holland that Chris signed his solo recording deals, first with WEA Records and the rock duo "Bridge" in the early '80s, and then more recently with VIA Records. The instrumental CD "Guitars And Oranges" (on VIA Records) was released in 1993 and features Chris' guitar work and song writing. Over the years Chris has recorded over twenty guitar instrumentals, which were released in 2001 as a CD called "The Goyer Golf Suite". This original soundtrack recording provides a beautiful punctuation on the long and distinguished career of this accomplished artist.

I especially love the opening track "Cherry Blossoms."

Try to make your thoughts cogent, and worth the time to read.

I'm Mark Bittner, the human subject of "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill." I want to make clear the reason that Judy Irving (with some input from me) chose Chris Michie's music for the film: We LIKED it--a lot. Giving it just one star and calling it cheesy and campy is ludicrous. No matter what he thinks of the music, one star demonstrates "attitude," which makes Miller-loran's review untrustworthy. I especially love the opening track "Cherry Blossoms." Fluid playing, good melody, integrated parts, interesting harmonies. It's great stuff, sincere stuff. I've played professionally, and I've listened to everything from Buell Kazee to Ornette Coleman, and I know that the only thing that really matters in music (or any other art) is sincerity. I avoid like the devil both commercialism and hipness, equally useless qualities. I'm guessing that Max has a hipness problem.

Unless you have heard the soundtrack and agree with the previous reviewer don't pay any attention to it. Chris Michie was a great talent as anyone who is framiliar with his music and bio would know.

This is a great soundtrack.

Max - what does "realistic dialogue (corrected your spelling)" mean, in a documentary? Are you mixing your metaphors? ALL dialogue in a documentary is realistic, or it is not a documentary. Get your terms straight before you start slagging something. And HOW, pray tell, did the editing ruin the movie? There is no meat in your argument, let alone brain tissue! Try to make your thoughts cogent, and worth the time to read. Did you have a different kind of composer's music in mind, and who and what. Etc. ad nauseam.

If you have not heard the album, and need a "similar" tag, my wife says Chris Michie's music is akin to a wilder form of Craig Chaquico, who I thought had been the guitar player for the opening sequence of film.

The film was dedicated to Chris Michie, who died after making this wonderful music. If the filmmaker and the subject of the film are satisfied with Michie's product, pay more attention to that. Mark was too kind.

This sound track is a beautiful, sensitive, lovely dance partner to Judy Irving's film, "The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill." From "Cherry Blossoms", to "Connor's Theme" and "Sophie and Connor", each melody transcends and compliments the film maker's art, one blending into the other perfectly. That Judy and Mark dedicated the film to Chris Michie and his music says so much about the quality, the personification, and the magic the music brought into focus. Contrary to the negative review, I can't think of a more appropriate kind of music than this moving, serene yet evocative guitar playing that blends so well with the key elements of the film: a parrot flock in flight; human interaction with nature; and preservation of the natural order. In a life filled with music, this sound track has to be considered Chris Michie's most significant work. When you listen to the music, you feel the musical interpretation of the events captured in the film-the highest compliment to give. Five stars for this one!

The subject of the movie in the trailer drew me in first and motivated me to see it right away - Awesome work, Judy! Well investigated, well documented, and well shared. And thank you, Mark! You are an inspiration! I must say though, the music motivated me to take the next step: I want the soundtrack! It fit the movie so well and created a remarkable atmosphere. I want Chris' music in my home!

Was I surprised by Max's comments! So much so I went to check him and his taste out. Sorry, what a waste of time! Max likes to hear himself write. Too bad he stopped by...
