New from Film Score Monthly
8-Feb-2006 - Film Score Monthly continues its presentation of George Duning's best scores with two delightful comedy-fantasies: Bell, Book And Candle (1958) and 1001 Arabian Nights (1959), paired from the Colpix Records stereo masters. FSM's premiere CD of these two soundtracks is entirely in stereo, and includes the "bonus track" from the Citadel Records LP reissue of Bell, Book and Candle. New liner notes by Daniel Champion are presented along with the original LP commentaries. FSM returns to the heart of the Silver Age of film music -- the early 1970s -- with this 2CD set of M-G-M scores by Oliver Nelson and Jerry Fielding. Zigzag (1970), a mystery-thriller starring George Kennedy, was one of Nelson's few features, for which he provided a pair of evocative themes and jazz-based undercurrents. Disc one of this album features the previously unreleased original soundtrack plus the LP re-recording. The Super Cops (1974), directed by Gordon Parks (Shaft), was based on a true story about a pair of heroic, low-level New York City cops. Fielding provided an amusing, energetic kaleidoscope of moods and styles: anxious, comedic, reflective, and action-packed, with funky source cues. This 2CD set also features numerous bonus tracks: Disc two includes Fielding's three episode scores for the 1973 TV series Hawkins, plus unreleased Fielding source cues from The Outfit (1973).
