Frank Skinner's Imitation Of Life/Interlude
6-Mar-2012 - Disques Cinémusique has released the CD premiere of two original soundtracks by Frank Skinner, the overlooked composer of about 200 movie scores. Imitation Of Life (1959) is arguably one of Skinner’s finest efforts, a forgotten gem packed with moving and atmospheric themes, in addition to the main title melody provided by Sammy Fain. Interlude (1957) relies mostly on popular classical works. In both cases, Joseph Gershenson conducts with brio the Universal International orchestra and the young Henry Mancini is said to have collaborated anonymously! The two soundtracks have been digitalized and restored from mint LP albums. The overall sound quality is fine : clean but warm and crisp. Imitation of Life is in true stereo and a slight reverberation has been added to the monophonic Interlude to create some depth.
