Editorial Reviews

With an increasing popularity for making Home Movies comes a need for suggested background music, here collected in 1964. As the liner notes describe: "A moving-picture, whether it is of the professional or the home-made variety, needs special background music to bring it to life." the music, very much in the style of Hollywood film music from that era (60s), is all orchestral compositions, and is presented in "moods" such as infectious "Bistro Time" or majestic "Skies and Mountains" etc. Liner notes include tips on how to edit your film to include music, with descriptions of each track and what sort of "action" it might best apply to.

I found "Background Music for Home Movies" Vol 1 & 2 by accident, I love them. I have used them for my old Super-8 movies I converted to DVD. I have also used them for my DVD slide shows. Those of us who went to school in the 60's will recognize some of these from old safety movies and other educational films back in the day.

It would help if the tracks were a little easier to loop for longer slide shows or movie clips. The tracks on these two albums are between 1:17 and about 3:30 minutes.

The only reason I didn't give them 5-stars is that there needs to be more tracks. Maybe Vol 3 and 4 and 5...

It downloads fast and is easy to use. The music reminds me of old movies in the forties and fifties. I wish there had been a wider variety of styles. Mr. BILL
