Onya, for the second time in two days, I am literally hanging on tender hooks (ouch, my nipples).

I am almost sick with worry that you may post something vaguely negative about CLEOPATRA. I'll permit you a certain leeway with SPARTACUS. But you cannot say anything negative about CLEOPATRA - one of the best scores ever. However, if you do say anything negative about CLEO, let me warn you that our exchanges will never be the same again, especially after your giving me a general thumbs up on my latest acquisitions thread, which I have added to in the interim. I hope the latest changes on that thread meet your approval.

Well, I can has a computer now. And so I will, finally share my thoughts on Cleopatra and Spartacus.

I know you've all been waiting patiently. Well, wait no more!


How much longer?

Well, Mrs. Birri will be home with me this weekend, and I wouldn't dream of subjecting her to the music of Alex North.

Unless it is "Streetcar" or "North of Hollywood."

So, it looks like you will have to wait until Monday.

In the meantime, rest assured that I will be going through my notes and drafting a very incisive and compelling assessment of Mr. North's music.

Yes, you branch out with North until you go through his entire works your assuming that he lacks what fundamentals the skills that you listen too, North was a pioneer of jazz works he put it around before Elmer kinda took that mantel that lead Elmer both really too other pathways but they still knew where home was from time too time in film works.

When you have a chance, please translate that into English, and I'll be happy to read it.

Has OnyaBirri ever considered getting The Bad Seed?

La-La Land's “SPOOKTACULAR” sale has this reduced down to $5! eek

This is the 1956 RCA LP, Onya, re-issued onto CD with 5 bonus tracks.

Thanks! We just ordered. I will let you know if it is any good or not, and if Alex breaks the mood with his trademark ridiculous antiquated Broadway segments.

I had gotten a used LP back in 1991 and The Bad Seed has always been 'good' according to me. smile

Heindorf is credited as conductor, so this may be a plus for Onya.

The 'mood' is consistent and there are no vaudevillian parts. You might not care for the old French lullaby, but Alex North alters it (not unlike Charles Ives) with plenty of twisted variations.

It is nice that these labels are selling albums for the going price...

No, I'm not into social media at present. Besides, I expect folks already heard Zardoz intone
"the gun is good" and watched 100s of rifles pour out my mouth.
