My parents belonged to a "record club"...and as such
were able to order various lp's to be sent to the house.
The record club versions usually had no paper inner sleeve, but a clear plastic one, the shape of a bowl...
It was "sealed, and you tore at the dotted line on the straight edge to get at the record...
As a music fan, it was fascinating to listen to the themes on this record, as they were diverse, but they had 2 common threads...most of them were arranged by the late, great Don Costa, and the second thing was they were all from United Artists motion pictures(of course)lol...
Another pleasurable thing was that since we owned an
early Webcor Stereo protable phonograph, most of the discs we ordered were in stereo.
The tunes and arrangements on this disc are excellent, and today years later, still sound great and exciting!
The writers that represented these themes were some of the best! Dimitri Tionkin, Elmer Bernstein, David Buttolph, etc... and coming home after school and putting this Lp on lifted my spirits very much...
Just hearing the Magnificent 7 theme and its unique fascinating rhythms got me going...and then later on in the selections, cuts such as Exodus, and the introspective "Smile" by Charlie Chaplin made me ponder
my emotions...what a lovely arrangement by Don Costa..
Hey, 50 some odd years later, this recording still does it for me, and I'm glad Amazon has it for sale! Not all of the cuts were directly from the soundtrack, but actually, they were done much better than the originals, with a couple of exceptions...
Pick this up if you like dynamic orchestral music!
