This music is far and away beyond being exceptional! Messrs. John Morgan and William Stromberg have yet again exceed their past triumphs (I have no clue how they keep doing this!). Where to begin? Perhaps, with some numbers: five stars (out of five) for restoration, arrangement/re-arrangement, and cue selection/editing; five stars for presentation (conducting and orchestral performance); five stars for recording and mastering; and five stars for the fascinating (and huge!) CD booklet courtesy of Messrs. Bill Whitaker and John Morgan (the photo on page 33 is worth the price of admission alone!). With a new orchestral venue and technical crew, Mr. Stromberg has once again "come into his own," acoustically speaking; the technical aspects of past recordings with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra has often been ham handed and uneven to the point of distraction. But the sound on these tracks is definitely 21st Century in quality! For those new to the neighborhood, just who are these two film composer folks--Frank Skinner and Hans J. Salter? Well, among other notable achievements, they saved many a Universal programmer during the late 30's and early-to-mid 40's (and very likely the studios's bacon to boot). When you view Universal's "second wave" of horror films even today, two things instantly grab your attention: the stunning photography and the inventive, pulsating music. "(These) pictures were a great challenge, because ... before scoring they didn't seem to have much fright about them or cohesion either. They'd screen one of those pictures for us without the music, and it would be nothing. The challenge was in creating the sense of terror and suspense, and that is something music can do. All the pictures we saved for them!" Mr.Read more ›

Some music is great fun, either in itself or by personal associations or both. So when Marco Polo issued selections from the Salter/Skinner scores to "Son of Frankenstein," "The Invisible Man Returns," and "The Wolf Man" back in 1995 and followed up with the complete film score to "House of Frankenstein" by Salter and Dessau, I could not keep from grinning foolishly hearing it, all the time realizing how good some of it really was.
Now we have <Classic Scores of Mystery and Horror by Frank Skinner [and] Hans J. Salter> (8.225124) that treat us to 22 cuts from "The Ghost of Frankenstein," 8 from "Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror," and a taste of three other films. The very generous program notes tell the whole story, with good lobbycard illustrations, of how this team worked together--one slept as the other worked--and I leave it to you to read all about it for yourself. As for the music itself, listen to the "Monster Theme" in the first suite and think if you will of how Wagner treated the "Dragon Leitmotif" in "Siegfried" to appreciate how classically grounded much of this music is in the tradition of Weber, Wagner, and even Richard Strauss. Not all of the selections are of high quality, but enough are to merit this offering a high rating.
Happy and spooky listening, folks.

Very pleasing album overall. You can always count on John Morgan (reconstructionist) and William Stromberg (conductor) for a fine orchestral rendering of classic film scores. My only negative comment about these scores is that they just don't seem to be very musically compelling or memorable--unlike the music on other Morgan/Stromberg collaborations--e.g., House of Frankenstein, Charge of the Light Brigade, She, The Prince and the Pauper, Adventures of Don Juan, and their Bernard Herrmann scores (Fahrenheit 451, Mysterious Island, The Kentuckian, Battle of Neretva). I'm very pleased and thankful, though, to have these scores produced by people whose passion for the music is evident in the performance.

Everything it should be, with good sound quality and a full orchestration. The "lady" says, "turn it off, you're scaring the children. We don't have any children.
I would have given it five stars but I prefer some other "Frankenstein" music to this. Movie music can be great. Check out the music of Heinz Roemheld, too. A definite "buy" for fans of Sherlock Holmes movies, even though Conan Doyle never actually wrote the story.
As and active singer of opera, I say, " let's have more movie music, please". Unfortunately, many of my favorites are non-existent.

I wondered why this previously out of print and expensive CD was suddenly so inexpensive. It is a Naxos repressing of the original CD and, the copy I got from Amazon, is unmistakably a CD-R at that. The music is great and it's good to see it back in print but it should be noted here that it is not the original pressing. Also the extensive booklet mentioned in a previous review is not included with the Naxos release.

Ever since I started seeing the universal studios monster movies on tv I was always struck by the music soundtrack. They had all the elements to help the movie tell the story, it had passion or romance, thunderous drums or cymbals crashing in the acton scenes, flute or horn sequences to add cuteness to further emulate the story being told. When i discovered that there were actual soundtracks of the music on cd form i was skeptical but curious. My fears have been put aside, WIlliam Stromberg and company have done exteme justice to Frank Skinner and Hans J Salter's compostions and if you a fan of the music of those movies from the 30's and 40's you'll love how well they are played on these cds
