We (I) typed one of the On the Beach track titles incorrectly. It should be "Australian Summer Night." Sorry, Ernest!

And I suppose it would be bad form at this late date to point out that the guy on the right in the picture on page 5 of the liner booklet for WHERE EAGLES DARE/OPERATION CROSSBOW is NOT Brian G. Hutton. He's buried somewhere in LAST TRAIN FROM GUN HILL and doesn't look much like this Paul Mazursky lookalike.

Great buy at 15 bucks, I love this one - 'Beach' is good, but 'Santa' is the
kicker for me - a really great, sleeper italo-tribute, like a long lost Nino
Rota score, but in a good way, not a temp track ripoff.
Charming stuff, and even the movie is worth seeing (always a helpful bonus).

Personally, since I heard it first, Chris Gordon's ON THE BEACH is THE last word
on that topic, one of my all time favorite scores - may be blasphemy to some, but
I think the world is big enough for both scores.

Love Ernest Gold. Wish he'd been able to write more original music for On the Beach. Even though he was unwillingly saddled with Waltzing Matilda, he makes very effective use of it, but overall I too give the edge to the latter score (accompanying film of which is not fit to be in the same room with the original, however). I also think very highly of the original novel.

Christopher Gordon's score for the remake is actually a candidate for my favorite score of all time (no joke)...I think Goldsmith, or Rozsa, or Newman, or Bernstein, or Friedhofer would've been proud to write such an amazing score.

And in regards to a recent thread about Gordon...I like Moby Dick a hell of a lot but he *definitely* topped it with On the Beach. This score should be worshipped as a masterpiece but it only is by a privileged few.
