The Lion's Roar


ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

Booklet CoverThis "deluxe" two CD set really isn't a soundtrack to The Clock, but with the inclusion of the original soundtrack recordings of George Bassman's composition "Main Title/End Title", it's the only release of any soundtrack recordings from the film, and worth listing as a "soundtrack" until a complete one comes along.

The sound quality for the track is excellent, in a sparkling original mono. All of the tracks in this set have the best possible sound quality.

This set also includes and 8 minute "suite of themes" from The Wizard Of Oz - all in glorious stereo for the first time on CD.

Speaking of Oz, this CD set is one of the few places to find scores by the under-represented Herbert Stothart. Not many of his scores are on CD. However, follow this link to Screen Archives Entertainment/Film Score Monthly's page featuring the new double-feature CD of the original Stothart soundtracks to Random Harvest & The Yearling. Soundtrack CDs for Lili and I'll Cry Tomorrow can also be found, among others, at this wonderful stie.

You might notice as well that several other composers and conducters of MGM Musicals (such as Conrad Salinger & Johnny Green) are also represented here, proving the amazing versatility of the MGM musicians.

The accompanying 48 page booklet is lavishly illustrated with excellent liner notes by Toronto writer and broadcaster Greg Gormick and CD producer George Feltenstein.

This set is highly recommended, and a "must have" for fans of The Clock and/or collectors of great film scores.
