I'm looking for some compilations dedicated to one film composer that use primarily the original film recordings. I know of a lot of sort of tribute albums to people like Horner with new recordings, but (I'm sure due to licensing among other factors) ones that use the original recordings seem rare.

In fact off the top of my head I have exactly two that fit this criteria. The excellent (and now long out of print) French based series Le Cinema--Le Cinema de Michel Legrand and Le Cinema de Maurice Jarre. While for the most part I prefer collecting full original scores, for certain composers it's nice to have this sort of overview (especially since with both Legrand and Jarre there are many soundtracks I would never buy individually or aren't available). I know there was at least one more in the series--Le Cinéma De Georges Delerue--but I never bought it when it would have been affordable partly as I really am not all that familiar with Delerue.

Konga is calling you:





If you are receptive towards 1960s & late-'50s British film music, these mono originals were sourced from Gerard Schurmann's archive of composer copies.

3 years later, Cloud Nine issued in 1996 volume 1 on original sound recordings from Tristram Cary (there was never any volume 2)

CNR also did a Roy Webb collection of original recordings. Review below:

Three identically-named John Williams compilations, with slightly different contents from the original soundtrack recordings...

Thanks Zardoz! That actually definitely interests me though the only one of those films that I've seen is... you guessed it, Kongas! Oh and Quartermass which I love.

THX, that's actually just the kind of thing I'm looking for! I know many collectors probably would look down on such a compilation but... I probably should not admit this here, but aside from a vinyl Superman soundtrack I actually don't own *any* John Williams (for a variety of reasons, including that, while I like his work, I've simply never been a huge fan--) and that may be a good starting point.

Intrigued by the Bruce Broughton discs too--and how did I not know he wrote the theme for Tiny Toons??

Tracks 2 and 10 are re-recordings but everything else is from the original releases...

Thanks for that as well--seems a bit harder to find decent and decently priced copies but I know to keep my eyes peeled. Appreciated!
