The Sound of Vinyl: Great Soundtrack LPs
Saturday, June 22, 2013
In the 21st century we have an unprecedented abundance of film scores available. CD and digital releases abound, and boutique labels continue to find soundtrack gems from the past to reissue or release for the first time. Even so, not all film score albums have made the transition to modern technology. Some wonderful music can be found only in the grooves of old vinyl LPs.
David Garland presents an array of collectors' items, forgotten curiosities, and under-appreciated gems, all heard from vinyl pressings, and most not yet reissued digitally. Highlights include Malcolm Arnold's "The Roots of Heaven," Fred Karlin's "The Sterile Cuckoo," Richard Addinsell's "Loss of Innocence," Teo Macero's "Betrayal," and Gordon Parks' "The Learning Tree."
