OnyaBirri : Re: "It happens - the first time - between 1:19 and 1:22. The chords he uses are somewhat plain in the OST version; he devises a more interesting turnaround on the LP version."

I have both the original RCA LP as well as the identical (I think) CD. As for the chorus, it's just too heavily done on the RCA LP/CD, and the movie version captured by Intrada is just about perfect. I'm sure that Henry Mancini is smiling down at this new release!

The chorus is mixed very low on my copy, well integrated into the band.

OnyaBirri: On the original RCA release? Because THAT's the one that has the occasionally too loud chorus for me, and NOT the Intrada, that has it better integrated into the cue.

No one "missed it". It's a MAF release. It'll be available for a long time to come.

To TerraE (one more member who has been here for years
but tells us zilch about himself other than that he's from
Las Vegas):

Matt wrote "Back in stock within 1-2 weeks at Intrada"
and I simply replied, based on what he wrote, "Great
for those who missed it." If Matt was wrong, correct
him.

Likes, dislikes, favorite composers, favorite soundtracks -- fill in some of the profile blanks. Nothing personal, just what you like about music and stuff. I have this thing about empty profiles!

Ron P: Re: "It's hardly pointless, Mr. Hardcastle…"

And if there was a point to our debate, why do you suppose the powers-that-be stepped in and closed it?


For the same reason other worthwhile threads have been closed: Not because the intended subject matter was objectionable, but because troll behavior afflicted some of the responders and offended others posting to the thread.

In other words, it was NOT the subject matter that was being closed off - it was the negativity of "some" of the posters.

Am I the only one who prefers the OTHER cover to the Intrada "Breakfast At Tiffany's" (the close up of Audrey and not the full shot with cigarette holder)? So I turned my front cover around, although once I put it on the shelf it's not going to matter. I wanted to do something similarly to the La-La-Land "True Grit," where the cover cuts off a bit of the boots (while the booklet is fine) -- they added some graphics on top, but they could have made the image just a tiny bit smaller and NOT cut off the boots. Just a thought. Kind of reminds me of when I see people taking horizontal photos of 1 or 2 people, when you know they're going to cut them off at the knees or the waist. If you don't have to (cut 'em off), then DON'T! And the same goes for CD covers.

Anyone who doesn't buy this release is really missing out on one of the great gems of the year. There have been a lot of great releases this year and this stands tall with the best of them.

I just got this CD. After listening to it, I wondered where is the Mr. Yunioshi cue? After all, it was on the soundtrack LP and also on the LP taken from the early 70's concert that Mancini gave in Japan (which, as far as I can determine, has never been reissued on CD).

I thought it was in the film, but after checking the places where Mickey Rooney's character appears, I confirmed that it wasn't (DUH).

So did Mancini record this during the scoring sessions to be used in the film? One wonders why it was not.

I have the original RCA release LSP-2362 from 1961. I checked the credits on the disc itself and found that the selections "Mr. Yunioshi" (side 1 track 4) and "Holly" (side 2 track 3) are not from the film.
On side 1 they list tracks 1,2,3,5, and 6 are from the film. On side 2 it's tracks 1,2,4,5, and 6 are from the film.
My guess is that they were unused themes.

Yes, both "Mr. Yunioshi" and "Holly" were written specifically for the album. I brought this up in a previous thread (Mr. Yunioshi, third post)

http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=100347&forumID=1&archive=0

While "Holly" is a lovely track, in my opinion Mr. Mancini should have replaced "Mr. Yunioshi" with track 30, "Moon River (Audrey Hepburn and Guitar)" featured on the Intrada CD, and "Hub Caps and Tail Lights" should have been displaced by Intrada's "Where's Cat/Finale (Moon River)" as the final track of the LP.

Should anyone be interested, an enlightening Castillion rendition of Moon River can be heard on Iglesias's work for La Mauvaise Education.

I've been coming around on this and will probably order it soon.

I'm surprised the LP program wasn't included as Disc 2. Thankfully I already have the old CD, so I'm slightly better off without this being a 2 disc set.
