If you're looking to buy a cd with the original pieces used from Stanley's films, don't waste your money on this disc. Of the 19 tracks, only 2 are the recordings from the actual film. "Midnight, the Stars and You" was transfered directly from 78 and was not processed at all to remove surface noise. The main title from "The Shining" is a cheezy re-recording that sounds like it was played on a Casio keyboard. What a letdown.

The reviewers critical of the "bait and switch" on Vera Lynn's "We'll meet again" are right on. Nothing is more frustrating than waiting for the big band sing-along recorded in the 50's (which is the end of Dr. Strangelove) and instead hearing her 1930's original with the cheesy organ (which is not the end of Dr. Strangelove). Arrrrghh!!

But, the song as it was recorded in the 50's and as used in Dr. Strangelove can be found! Find it on the collection "Fabulous Fifties Divas---Sing Their Hard to Find Hits" from HitParade Records, released in 2006. Finally!

Also Sprach Zarathustra is a great tune, but the version of We'll Meet Again is not the same one that plays as the bombs explode in Dr. Strangelove. Had I known that, I probably wouldn't have bought the disc.

I only bought this cd for the Vera Lynn "We'll Meet Again" song and it was another version that's not nearly as good. The rest of the cd is solid, but not solid enough to make me forget my disappointment.

First of all, this is a Kubrick fan's dream come true, I could not believe it when I saw it. All the music from the scores are re-recordings though, so if you want the originals don't get this. But most of the music sounds the same. My only complaints are that they couldn't put more in. They should have included the title music from "A Clockwork Orange." I also don't understand why a they left out so much of Gyorgy Ligeti's music from "2001" and "The Shining." Warner Bros. needs to put out a real soundtrack for "The Shining". Other than that, it's great.

I expected to hear the REAL carlos recordings from the movies only to get some cheap knock-off. Don't bother if you are interested in any of the electronic recordings.
