Memphis Belle
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Liked it but I really bought it for the jazzed up version of danny boy that was in the movie. It wasn't on the CD. Dissapointed."
Memphis inspiring score!

"Memphis Belle ranks high as one of George Fenton's finest soundtracks. Originally released in September of 1990, this soundtrack is based on a World War II film about an American crew flying a mission over Germany. Some of the music on this CD is written with piano and guitar, making it a fine blend (Take "Amazing Grace" for example) The main title starts with a lone trumpet for the first half minute, then building as strings make up the background of the song, with snare drums making it sound like a historic World War II piece. The next three tracks (2,3,4) are real World War II band songs, and are great if you are into 40's band music. ("Danny Boy" being a popular song) Track number 5 is "Amazing grace" written in a great-sounding arrangement. Beginning with a guitar, and then strings and drums as the background, and a fife as the lead instrument, this track is great. Also another fine track, number 6, is a mix between strings and brass, making it a great orchestral track. The rest of the music on this CD is pretty tense (During the mission over Germany), This is a good soundtrack full of great, peaceful orchestral music as well as tense battle music. The soundtrack to this movie fits it just perfect, even if the movie isn't very accurate to the Memphis Belle's final mission over Germany. A fun CD, great for collectors!"
