I'm listening to this LP (digital-converted)



and it's a lot of fun. It's as period-locked as a time capsule, but very groovy baby.

I guess it's lucky Bernstein didn't get typecast for doing such a good job on such a particular kind of sound.

It has little hints in common with THE GHOST AND MR CHICKEN. That's unexpected.

Yeah, this one always has been a sixties favourite of mine, especially the very Bond-ish title song by Vikki Carr.

Think this will be released on cd in our lifetime?

Isn't it strange that it hasn't appeared on CD thus far? Even when a lot of those old RCA Victor soundtrack albums were being issued in Spain, this one never made it. It's fun stuff and I always felt that the stereo recording of this was one of the best sounds committed to LP.

As an aside, on Vikki Carr's web-site she paid tribute to Elmer Bernstein when he died; I thought it was a nice touch.

Almost six years on, and still no CD release. This one must be in the pipeline, surely?

I always heard this was a rights mess with RCA doing this score LP, Reprise doing a song release (with an instrumental of the Bernstein theme) and, of course, Columbia owning the original tracks.

Isn't the existence of older Columbia Pictures masters very iffy?

Realistically, I'd be more than happy with just a new release of the original album, which Intrada is likely capable of doing given their working with RCA/Sony Music. The same goes for the Schifrin score.

I've always loved the main title sequence with Cyd Charisse.

I believe there was a Japanese CD release at one time.

Her moves with Vikki Carr's sexy singing was unbeatable.

Due for release on the Dutton-Vocalion label quite soon I hear, paired with a score by Neal Hefti (Boeing-Boeing).

Well, there's an unmentionable release, paired with Murderers Row.

A perfect pair with THE SILENCERS would be another Bernstein: no need to say that it is I LOVE YOU ALICE B.TOKLAS!

Now listed (for pre-order) but regretfully: it appears to be only the 13 track score album ... no extras. For Dutton Vocalion this is rather surprising given the full-price ticket.

See: http://www.duttonvocalion.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=CDLK4573

Nonetheless: it shall be in my next order - yeh!

Ah, I see I was (slightly) mis-informed - Neal Hefti's BOEING BOEING is a separate release (CDLK 4578) and is paired with OH DAD, POOR DAD... Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad.

Well, that's a disappointment. I already have an LP transfer and that will do for now.

Have been in possession of this CD for a few weeks now, and it sounds just great. This is, in fact, the first legitimate release of this album in the U.K. in stereo. The old RCA Victor LP was only ever available over here in mono, with the RD prefix. (RD 7792)
