Original music, but not original "Soundtrack"... technically
Bluebird | USA | 12/23/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Though touted as an original "soundtrack" recording, this is in actuality an original "score" recording. The soundtrack was recorded with the 106 member Los Angeles Philharmonic. This disc is a re-recording with a 65 piece orchestra, helmed by composer Ernest Gold. However, all of the well remembered themes are here, and some bits of memorable dialogue. Also included are full versions of "Thirty One Flavors," and "You Satisfy My Soul" - the songs heard during the scenes with Dick Shawn and Barrie Chase. All in all, a fun listening experience of music which was as much a character in the film as any of the actors."
Decent, but not the ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK

"This is not the exact music heard in the movie. It is a remake. Someone should issue the ACTUAL music soundtrack heard in the movie on cd. They Could Take The Original 6-Track 70mm Optical Soundtracks, and use a mixing board to get rid of the dialogue and sound effects, and edit the selections to how they are heard on this CD, but they would be the originals heard in the movie (maybe throw in some extra music from the movie that has never appeared on any of the soundtrack albums in the past 41 years, hint, hint :). Until then, I guess this is as good as it gets."
Loved the movie, loved the CD

"If you loved the movie, you'll love this CD. I have seen the movie dozens of times and it's just wonderful to have the music available when I drive around, though somewhat less madly than these characters. The CD has all the essential musical elements from the movie and immediately calls to mind those parts of the film that are assocaited with it. Thanks, Mr. Gold, for having the foresight to produce it. The information that comes with the CD is great, too."
