It's a shame this is going out of print. Richard Rodgers was unexpectedly asked to write a long score to accompany a television documentary about World War II in the South Pacific. With Robert Russell Bennet arranging and conducting, it's a very lush orchestral evocation of the naval battles in the 40s. Much of it sounds like outtakes from "South Pacific": "Guadalcanal March" has a lot of "Bloody Mary" in it. The island theme later became the hit song "No Other Love Have I." This is lovely music to think, read, or drive to.

I've own this album on cassette tape and it is starting to degrade. So glad I found it again. I remember Sunday evenings in the 50's and couldn't wait for the next installment of Victory at Sea on TV. I was about 12 or 13 at the time. The haunting sounds of this album lives on. Bringing back a black and white TV show would be impossible today, but it would be wonderful to see a rerun of this say on PBS.

Richard Rodger's music composed for Victory at Sea is something that anyone born before 1944 will remember. The series was on TV in the mid-1950's for many of us. The music is both haunting and inspiring at the same time. Some of the tunes...can't get them out of your head. I recently bought the Blu-Ray version of the VAC series and was a little disappointed with the sound. Oh, it was clear, but the "mix" seemed a little off. This old CD brought back the LP's I remember from the late 50's/early 60's. As I recall, Volumes II and III were also issued but very hard to find at the time. I wish they too were available on CD.

Probably the best music ever written for television, and it's almost 60 years old. More attention should be paid to Richard Bennett, who wrote 95% of the music, based on a dozen themes Rodgers sketched out over a weekend. Rodgers was the name, so he got the credit. It was also I think the first recording the NBC Symphony (aka the RCA Symphony) recorded after Toscanini passed on. They sure play like it. The series itself was created only 8 years after the war ended, and it's pretty obvious from Leonard Grave's melodramatic narration. Despite the fact a lot of the footage used was Japanese in origin, especially the Pearl Harbor segment, which used many scenes from "I Bombed Pearl Harbor."

I began as a child listening to this music when the program was on our old black and white TV. I thought it was incredible then and am so happy to have found this album so I can hear the sounds of such music again.

Ever since watching the original "Victory at
Sea" series on TV when I was young, I have always loved the music by R.R.Bennett. I have the series on
DVD and still watch it to this day.
