Synopsis

Amazon.com
From Rhino Records come the marvelous soundtracks to two televised adaptations of Dr. Seuss's modern classics The Grinch That Stole Christmas! and Horton Hears a Who! Originally recorded in 1966, The Grinch is the barometer by which all television Christmas specials are measured. In the hands of lyricist Seuss and composers Albert Hague and Eugene Poddany, the soundtrack mixes traditional Yuletide sounds with square-dancing music and sophisticated sound effects. Boris Karloff shines as the storyteller and the voice of the Grinch, a gloriously Seussified Scrooge. And Thurl Ravenscroft, also known as the voice of Tony the Tiger, sings "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" with glee. The second and lesser known of the two tales chronicles the interactions of a big-eared elephant, Horton, and the misunderstood, somewhat-mad professor Dr. Hoovey. Narrated in the familiar and engaging meter of Seuss's finest rhyming prose, these lively tales will secure an entirely new audience with their fine scores. --Paige La Grone

I love the cds "Turner Classic Movie Music" produces!

"I like the 1966 "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" very much. It is much better than the 2000 movie that I was greatly dissapointed by. The musical score of the 1966 TV movie excelent. The quality of the score is brough up and emphasized from behind the narration of Boris Karloff. And though I was a little dissapointed that the dialogue wasn't filtered out so the score was only heard, I still give it five stars. I have never seen "Hotron Hears A Who", so I wasn't that impressed by the soundtrack to that. For this holiday season, buy the 1966 soundtrack to "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", not the 2000 soundtrack."
The best twofor , it's a steal !
