Really - no comments on such a great soundtrack. Since November 2003! Nothing!? Okay so the source material was not the greatest - I love this Bernard Herrmann classic.

Yes,a gem of a score only marred by poor quality acetates and its the best what FSM could do but still grateful for it. I would champion a full fledge COMPLETE re-recording of this score. Granted a suite exists from Silva Screen records and that Herrmann BATTLE OF NERETEVA has some cues - the notorious Death Hunt cue reprised in the new re-recording.

Sure there have been! Just not linked from the CD itself. I believe this CD predates the FSM site's ability to do that.

I would also champion a re-recording! It definitely deserves one.

Good point - didn't think of that.

I love this score. And I love this CD. How about that?

Although I can listen past the quality issues with the source, the quality issues are nevertheless present, so I would love for there to be a new, faithful recording of this score.

As I don't think it will ever happen, then I say again: I love this score, and I love this CD.

I'm perfectly happy with the sound of this CD - but then again, I dig the "archival" quality of some recordings.

Anyway, a really fine BH score and a great FSM release...:-)

Agree with all the above. Fell in love with this music after hearing the Charles Gerhardt recording on the Citizen Kane album. The brilliance of the performance shines through - despite the limitations of the source material (no worse than listening to some old 78 recordings) Congratulation to FSM for putting the cd together. Well recommended to anyone! Film's very good too.

Regards

CC

Love this film, particularly the first half hour where Ryan's character is at the breaking point in terms of his miserable effing life. Herrmann's powerful theme is riveting but I find myself enjoying the delicate parts of this score even more when Ryan and Lupino's relationship develops.

As for sound quality "issues", I listen to 1920s jazz. Compared to those, the "imperfections" on this fine FSM release sound positively pristine.

Normaly I allways prefer original recordings (even if the soundquality isnt so good) instead of re-recordings.

But a new recording of ON DANGEROUS GROUND would be very welcome.
I love the score (specially the romantic parts), and as an addition to the FSM CD I would love to here the music in very good quality!

Maybe Tadlow will do it one day?!

Not going to happen.

The FSM CD is perfectly fine. I too love the score, more so after watching MUSIC FOR THE MOVIES, in which the viola d'Amore soloist was being interviewed.
