Another score worthy of revival on CD or isolated Blu-ray track is Alfred Newman and Cyril Mockridge's score for 1958'a THE GIFT OF LOVE. It received a nice Columbia LP release in 1958, but in mono only. I'm sure that hearing this score in stereo would be as much of a revelation as the recent stereo isolated track on Twilight Time's APRIL LOVE. The score features some fine orchestral arrangements of the title tune (written by Sammy Fain and Paul Francis Webster), some wonderfully poignant Newman cues, several re-workings of a theme from Newman's THE BLUEBIRD, and even a short brass quote from a DIARY OF ANNE FRANK cue. For anyone who liked A CERTAIN SMILE, this score is for you.
Speaking of ANNE FRANK, what are the chances of getting that released in full, or at least as a CD release of the old Fox LP?
Speaking of former Columbia records soundtracks - why not a complete stereo Affair to Remember?
Joe, do the complete stereo music-only tracks still exist? If so, that could be a marvelous release, as the original LP was in mono and the Australian LP re-release was actually in mono with a fake stereo reverb added to suggest a stereo release. The 1993 CD release on Epic/Sony, concurrent with the the related new film SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE was also in mono.
