Whoa! No wonder I asked about whether this was the album or the original tracks. The Varese version made this sound like a smaller orchestra. You have restored a little known classic!

They really don't do 'em like this anymore. There is more than a half dozen themes in the main title sample alone!

Ooh, this is an exciting one. It's been years since I watched the movie, but I remember enjoying it in general and the score in particular. I think I'll have to get this one (when I can, alas)...

Over twenty years ago I wrote about this score in FSM and called it "one of the greatest of all film scores." I still believe that, and can't wait to hear this new release in full. A HUGE thank you to all involved at Kritzerland for making this masterpiece availible. Merry Christmas to all!!!!! (And I don't care where it was recorded -- THE BUCCANEER is still film music perfection -- much like the original VERTIGO recording.)

It's been selling very well and there aren't all that many left - certainly under 150.

Great to see The Buccaneer is selling so well! It's classic Elmer, can't wait for the improved sound quality over the LP I now have.

I'm greatly looking forward to the Kritzerland CDs for 2014 especially the Victor Young! smile

Three Kritzerland examples:
Elephant Walk
The Far Horizons
The Buccaneer
In each case there are tracks noted "contains (song) by..."
I am making an assumption that in each case the song was composed "after the fact", mostly (or entirely) for marketing purposes and was not a pre-existing piece of music that was incorporated into the score.
If that is the case, is this just your personal preference to note that a song was also created using this or that theme or is there some sort of legal reason to reference songs which, unless my memory fails me, were not even included in the movie?

It's contractual at the studio involved.

Hi Bruce,

Was just listening to your superlative release of VISIT TO A SMALL PLANET/DELICATE DELINQUENT.

What's the possibility of your ever releasing a score album, with songs, from the Martin and Lewis film, ARTISTS AND MODELS? Though one song, "Inamorata," became an instant hit, there was never a soundtrack album issued, and this is a really fun score.

(Of course, it doesn't hurt that I saw this film several times in its initial release, and enjoyed it immensely, and, apart from a subplot involving, presumably, Russian spies, it's still very entertaining. I was 6...)

The truly sad news is that soundtracks to Jerry Lewis films don't seem to matter to people, not even his fans (and believe me, I've gotten to his fans). I thought it would be the opposite, but Geisha Boy, due to having to do 1500, was a disaster, and Visit, while selling enough to pay for itself, thank goodness, isn't doing what I thought it would. It's surprising to me, but will probably preclude doing more. That said, I'm not sure that the earlier films have elements.

Ordered The Buccaneer. With John Wayne at Fox & Drango also coming to me, it's a Bernstein Christmas (to myself) from Kritzerland. smile

Too bad.

The Dean Martin fans, however many there may be, would be likely to buy ARTISTS AND MODELS.

For what that's worth.

Dang! Always wanted to get a soundtrack of that score....

Oh well.

Too bad about GEISHA BOY, one of your best produced. It is also one of my favorites, which I play all the time. Perhaps too few "fans" are familiar with Walter Scharf? If only you could get Jerry Lewis to sign a couple hundred copies!
