Percy Faith did yet another one, back when EVERYBODY was covering "Born Free"

The David Rose album, Music from Motion Pictures, was one of my first film music LPs. I still have it, but it is in less than pristine condition. Was it ever released on CD? I was never able to find it.
I transferred it to CD, but there are lots of clicks and pops.

David Rose does one in 1957, with a VERY surprising final cut.



The final track may be his rejected theme for "Forbidden Planet"

Roy, could you please edit your post so that the final track remains a surprise for those who have not heard the recording?

Thanks.

I said it "may be". Just a guess.

Why am I not surprised that Frank DeVol got into this game, too?

Mancini hadda have his name and face all over everything he did.



This one is mostly TV, but some feature stuff, too.

Heres one I picked up back in the day. At the time it was the only way to get a copy of The Morning After from The Posiedon Adventure. A nice album just the same.

Claude Bolling did one, which should surprise no one.

You can't get David Rose to quit doing this!

it looks like this one qualifies:

I'm semi-un-interested in Bennett generally (so far, anyway), but this one has me interested. Some unique selections of scores,

https://www.amazon.com/Movie-Song-Album-Tony-Bennett/dp/B00138J5P4

and some good arrangements by Johnny Mandel, et. al.

David, the Bennett is a good find - just the sort of thing I started this thread about. Worth a listen though I prefer his later, jazzier albums with his older and more relaxed voice.

I picked up a cd from my library from a singer by the name of Chris Connor. The album is "Chris Connor Sings Gentle Bossa Nova" from 1965. Connor had sung with the Stan Kenton band briefly in early 1953.

On this album are typical songs of the period, like "A Hard Day's Night", "Downtown", "Stranger On The Shore", "Feeling Good" and "Who Can I Turn To". But it does include several movie themes that are not covered by many other artists. And, man are these good.

First reason I picked this up is for the Elmer Bernstein song "Baby, The Rain Must Fall" which I can't stop playing. Love the flute intro that backs Connor through the song.

Then there's "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte" by Frank De Vol and Mack David, and "Dear Heart" from Mancini.

Connor also sings "A Taste Of Honey" and "The Shadow Of Your Smile".

A very nice album that provides a fresh take on some tired songs and a great voice to go with it.

And yes, they are on YouTube.

Here's Victor Young's "Hollywood Rhapsodies" album from 1954.



While most of the album doesn't do much for me, I have to say that the first cut, an arrangement of Newman's THE ROBE love theme, is downright intriguing.


It also contains the first recording of Hugo Friedhofer's main theme from "The Best Years Of Our Lives" 25 years before the rerecording of the Oscar winning score by Frank Collura conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Great find! And the arrangements were done by Patrick Williams, so no surprise (to me) that you liked them.

Why didn't I think to look up Elaine Paige? She did one:
