"Hollywood's greatest high sea adventure scores"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 11/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Some of the best scores to come out of Hollywood, were of buried treasure and pirates...an example would be early classics such as ~ "CAPTAIN BLOOD"(Korngold)..."THE SEA HAWK"(Korngold)..."THE BUCCANEER"(Elmer Bernstein)..."ADVENTURES OF DON JUAN"(Max Steiner), this score is a personal favorite of mine, featuring Errol Flynn in the romantic lead, when he appeared on the Silver Screen all eyes were on him, when leaving the theatre all the boys would be practicing their swordplay.Other stand outs are ~ "THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD"(Bernard Herrmann)..."THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD"(Miklos Rozsa)...and this one I remember so well as a youngster ~ "THE CRIMSON PIRATE"(William Alwyn), which portrays the Jolly Roger, who was never so jolly, until Burt Lancaster arrived on the scene, Alwyn's score mixed with Lancaster's devil-may-car attitude captures the mood of every young boys dream of high adventure on the seas and pirate treasure.Silva Screen has come up with "Screen Classics Scores", and The City Of Prague Philharmonic, conducted by Paul Bateman delivers the goods in high fashion... a "True Swashbuckler Adventure", and one you shouldn't miss!Total Time: 49:36 on 10 Tracks ~ Silva Screen Records SSD-3009 ~ (1997)"
