"LOVE STORY, the second disc in the BCI Music series GOLDEN CINEMA CLASSICS, is not a cheapie set. It is an excellent recording by the BBC Orchestra, a formidable ensemble. Absolutely first-rate performances and beautiful, very "live" recorded sound. The recordings here of Casablanca (the very same 8:00 suite as was recorded by Charles Gerhardt for his 1972 album, CASABLANCA), Moulin Rouge, Limelight (my favorite), Out Of Africa and the others are just beautiful. I have all four of the discs in the series and could not be happier with them. The others are:
1 - ADVENTURE FILM (James Bond Suite, The Great Escape, Patton, The Sea Hawk, etc.)
3 - THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICAL (Annie Get Your Gun, Funny Girl, The Music Man, Gigi, etc.)
4 - EPIC FILM (Superman, Star Wars, The Big Country, Gone With The Wind, etc.)
I found these all in cut-out bins back in 1998-99 and got them one at a time, not fully trusting that they were in fact as good as they seemed. They ARE that good. They have also been available in different packaging under a different series title: THE MUSIC OF THE SILVER SCREEN. That's how I have them. This particular disc in that series lacks Spellbound, La Strada and For Whom the Bell Tolls, but is otherwise the same album. The whole collection has also been available as a box set. It's worth it.
