The tracks are presented in mostly in film order with alternates grouped at the end. However "No. 9" is clearly an alternate for "Red Flowers" and ought to be with the others. I've no idea what the title No. 9 refers to - perhaps it was slated as M9 or the ninth cue recorded? Hard to know.


According to Bill Wrobel's Score Rundown on Marnie

http://www.filmscorerundowns.net/herrmann/

"The Bowl" consists of two cues (No. 8 and No. 9) so that "No. 9" is clearly the second portion of "The Bowl," and not an alternate for "Red Flowers." Stylotone's release fades out cue No. 8 to keep it as a separate cue (which is dumb), not aware that No. 9 is the continuation of "The Bowl." [Thank God that they didn't split their second track ("Marnie") in its two respective cues (No. 2 and No. 3)!]

Joel McNeely's Varese recording of Marnie correctly renders "The Bowl" as a composite of cues No. 8 and No. 9.


Good catch. Thanks for posting the correction.

Just noticed that their MARNIE release has vanished from the Stylotone shop so likely sold out now. So is there maybe a chance for a release from one of our favourite labels now ??

Stylotone is waiting for all the Herrmann fans to die before they relinquish rights. Or maybe it's just a coincidence since they aren't exactly cranking out releases. Certainly little hope for Cordell's "God told me to."

I don't think it was ever available from the Stylotone website was it? Main stockists seemed to be Super DeLuxe Edition. Based at...who knows where?

I see from documents filed at Companies House that UIMG Ltd, who used to control or were associated with Stylotone, was dissolved in September 2019.

That particularly galls me because after working closely with Larry Cohen for an entire year, he told me he wished he'd given it to me instead because he didn't love that it was being sat on and he knew I could get it out quickly. Sadly, he passed away and now they still sit on it.

Thank you, I wasn't aware of this and it explains why it isn't even listed as sold out there.
Meanwhile I was looking around at some vendors and most mark list it as 'unavailable' now.
And the Super DeLuxe Edition shop clearly says 'Sold Out'.

So, how about it Kritzerland, Intrada, LaLa ?? Please save this score !

Apparently Stylotone has been "dormant" for several years:
https://opencorporates.com/companies/gb/10476656
"A company is considered 'dormant' if it has ceased trading and does not receive any form of income."

Although you wouldn't think it if you read a co-owner's hip webpage:

Well, if Stylotone is indeed dissolved, then I'm sure one of the boutique labels can hop on it.

I was happy to get Stylotone's Twisted Nerve, but I had zero interest in Marnie. I already have the McNeely, and I'm not really into 1940s Herrmann.

And I really don't like that horsey music, although it does remind me of the WB horse with the pretty eyelashes.

The Marnie score is from 1964.

I'm wondering if "1940s Herrmann" is your description of the music's style – a typo – or a misremembered time frame?

In any case, I really like the score – "horsey music" and all.

Stylistic. 1940s Herrmann, regardless of the date of the film or when it was composed.

Someone mentioned the download in another thread, but it's good that it's added here.
