The Newman box was a whopping FIVE CDs, not three Must be mixing it up with the last Steiner box.
Exactly correct Yavar. I have a friend in the US who ships them to me, caseless, 3 at a time. Also throwing me, it seems of late that we've been properly showered with 'Golden' goodies - some of them 'three-bees'. Could this be a trend, says he nervously!
How are you cuddling up to Newman's 'Splendored Thing'? I think of Bruce's latest offering as a splendored thing in itself and am currently delighting in a 'Prince of Foxes' earworm, can't go anywhere without it.
Ray, is there any reason why Steiner´s score for the Errol Flynn western SILVER RIVER is not on the set? I can only assume that it probably would have been too expensive to produce a 4 CD set with the inclusion of that score of which acetates were/are available in the Steiner library. So was that the reason to omit it or anything else? Otherwise SILVER RIVER would have gone together very well with the other Steiner scores for Errol Flynn westerns from the 40s which are indeed now on the set. Anyway, thanks for this great CD set!
The wiki says it originated in "Distant Drums," and later named after a character in "Feather River." I thought it originated earlier than 1951. Some of the sailors falling into the spider pit in KONG '33 sound Wilhemish (different studio, but still).
