I've not seen the film. Musically, does this sound anything like Rosenthal's RETURN OF A MAN CALLED HORSE?

I guess from the cover you could say he is "hung like a Horse."

Not much at all.

Rosenthal took a VERY romantic approach to the music, with only occasional uses of Native American sounds.

Rosenman was very non-tonal in a good bit of it, with significant uses of Native American instruments and chant (at least as I recall the album now).

Fans of Rosenman will probably like this for how he took his non-romantic style even further into his film music.

I'm not usually into Rosenman's music, but the sound samples on this were so compelling that I decided to take a chance and ordered a copy along with North Dallas Forty and that two disc set of a virtually unknown score by an even lesser-known composer.

This score was a complete shock to listen to when released as LP.
Music was so primeval and strange, yet with time loved it.
Think Rosenman tried to make us feel the strangeness of not belonging to the American Indian culture and at same time trying to respect the Sioux traditional music.
A superlative accomplishment IMHO.
Very happy to see this reissued by FSM.
Thanks

Awesome!

If anybody wants to push their tolerances PROPHECY is relentless. I enjoy Rosenman's stuff a lot, but that one is tough.

Thanks for getting this much harder to market stuff out, very much appreciated.

The samples of this are stunning. I'll definitely be ordering this soon.

For me PROPHECY was the easier listen.

I've just heard the samples of the bonus music on this one and am impressed. It's on my list now!

How I wished I had never seen even just a second of this movie. I once happened to see the scene pictured on the album cover, and now even just watching the depiction in the cover makes my man boobs hurt! eek

It is often that a Rosenman score can be called "beautiful", but HORSE has some elegant passages as well as the Native American chants, which are beautiful in themselves, though much of this music isn't to the taste of those raised on more commercial fare--which, oddly enough, is lusted over on these boards and then quickly forgotten--never to be mentioned again. wink

I love this score. Thank you for releasing it, so how about a release of the complete scores for Rebel Without A Cause, East Of Eden, and The Outsider. Rebel and East were released in the fifties. Neither has ever been on LP or on CD, except in truncated form or as re-recordings...How about it folks. I just turned 60 and would love to have these scores in my collection before I die.

Wonderful description of the score, Jim! It is Rosenman at his best like The Cobweb. I like this scores much better than his later works.
