CD Reviews

What a rip off!
San Fran Gruuv Fan | San Francisco, CA | 09/21/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"In the original CD release from Rykodisc, we got music aplenty but sloppy sound quality. In this brand new rerelease under a new label, we get better sound quality but less tracks! ARRGH!!

And as if to add insult to injury, the new cover art is terrible--this does NOT look like Marilyn Monroe is the least! It may seem a slight complaint to some, but I loved the cover art of Rykodisc's release much better.

Looks like we'll all have to wait for the next label to pick this one up to do a better job. Better luck next time, I suppose... hopefully the old saying about three being a charm is correct...

"Curtis, Lemmon, Monroe, Wilder ~ Adolph Deutsch"

"Varese Records presents the soundtrack to Billy Wilder's classic comedy "Some Like It Hot", featuring Tony Curtis as Joe, Jack Lemmon as Jerry a couple of musicians on the lamb, George Raft as Spats Columbo the mob boss, Pat O'Brien as agent Mulligan and what was one of her best performances Marilyn Monroe as Sugar Kane lead singer of Sweet Sue's Band ~ but the scene stealer in this film is vaudevillian Joe E. Brown as millionaire Osgood Fielding, who has fallen in love with Daphne (Jack Lemmon in disguise) ~ the score by composer and conductor Adolph Deutsch skillfully captures the times of the late '20s.

Many tunes of the period are outstanding ~ but the fun begins with solos by Miss Monroe, the songs "RUNNIN' WILD", I WANNA BE LOVED BY YOU" and "I'M THRU WITH LOVE", her performances in this film have become legendary,she was at the peak of her career in 1959. Just close your eyes and listen to each cue, you can still see the charm, comedy and the cross-dressing humor that made us laugh then and remains so fresh today...gotta love it!

Soundtrack songs minus adequate liner notes

"This 2-CD set from the obscure label Rajon, first published in 2005, contains what I think are 31 soundtrack songs by Marilyn Monroe, plus the famous "Happy Birthday, Mr. President," sung to President John F. Kennedy, with his brief, amused thank you. The collection kicks off with "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," from GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES (1953), written by Leo Robin and Jule Styne. Not in chronological order the songs covered come from the early LADIES OF THE CHORUS (1949), RIVER OF NO RETURN (1954), THERE'S NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS (1954), SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959), LET'S MAKE LOVE (1960), among others. The last mentioned, LET'S MAKE LOVE, has a few interesting songs with the film's co-star Yves Montand and Frankie Vaughan: the title song as well as "Incurably Romantic" and "Specialization." The sound quality is acceptable but the lack of adequate liner notes is not. Aside from the song titles and composer credits, the liner notes give no information except a short, superficial biography. The running times of each disc: 55:57 and 39:46. The cover has a luscious black and white photograph of Marilyn."
