Does this score or any portion of it appear on CD? I haven't been able to find even a single track of it on CD.

Fifteen-and-a-half minutes of the score (arranged by William Stromberg, conducted by Richard Kaufman, and played by the Brandenburg Philharmonic) are on the Marco Polo Historical Romances compilation (8.223608).

The disc also features Korngold's "JUAREZ" overture, excerpts from "DEVOTION," and about thirty-five minutes from Steiner's "THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE," featuring reconstructions by John Morgan.

There's a 15-minute suite on Marco Polo's "Historical Romances" CD, along with Juarez, Charge of the Lght Brigade and Devotion.
I don't recommend the CD, but the Gunga Din suite is the best of a rather poorly performed and recorded bunch.

I’ll be trying to talk John & Anna into doing a complete recording of this score for our Tribute label some day. It’s probably my favorite Alfred Newman score, and the suite I did years ago doesn’t even come close to presenting all of the great music in that score. My hands were tied with the amount of time on the disc I was given, so I tried to fit all of my favorite bits, but had to make a lot of cuts here and there. Also, I'd like to conduct it myself this time, obviously.

Keep your fingers crossed that Mysterious Island & Fahrenheit 451 sell well for us, so we can do things like Gunga Din.

Thank God!


A complete Stromberg-Morgan GUNGA DIN would be wonderful! Can't wait! When do you start recording? smile


The two old Newman/Darby recordings from the '50s, THE MAGIC ISLANDS and PORTS OF PARADISE are also favorites of mine in another vein.

How about, one day, considering a recording called NEWMAN IN THE TROPICS, which might include new stereo recordings of his music from MR. ROBINSON CRUSOE, THE HURRICANE, TRADE WINDS, SON OF FURY, and anything else which might fit the concept?

The original 1939 Main Title track from GUNGA DIN was released on Rhino's 1997 COMPOSED BY: CLASSIC FILM THEMES FROM HOLLYWOOD'S MASTERS (R272847). This single track (number 4), composed and conducted by Alfred Newman, plays 1 minute 47 seconds.

A Morgan/Stromberg digital reconstruction of the entire score would certainly find its way into my iPod.

I really like Ports Of Paradise too, especially the vocals by Mavis Rivers. What a lovely gatefold LP. I've never been able to find The Magic Islands, I hope that gets reissued on CD sometime.

Craig Spaulding (Screen Archives) has four more of our Marco Polo CDs up for preorder on the budget Naxos label.
Although we are no longer associated with Naxos, Bill and I are proud of our work with them and it’s good seeing them rereleased at only $8.00 a pop. Screen Archives has cover art on these and I believe that most of the liner notes, if not photos, have been retained. The CDs are:

Alfred Newman:
Beau Geste (20:10)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (38:46)
All about Eve (4:39)

______

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Max Steiner) (60:17)
One of our best sellers, it contains a few bonus cues including Theatrical trailer, Alternate Main Title, and Alternate Finale.

______

House of Frankenstein (Hans Salter/Paul Dessau) (55:26)
This contains the complete score from the Universal 1944 film.

______

The Bette Davis Films (Max Steiner) (71:08)
Contains two extended suites from:
All This, and Heaven Too (44:51)
A Stolen Life (26:11)
Although this one was recorded in 2002, it never was released domestically.

Yes, the budget re-issue will be available in Europe as well.
Strangely enough, one of the new Naxos Rozsa CDs has been delayed for the European market...

I too would love to see John & Bill record a complete Gunga-Din. It's one of Alfred Newman's best scores. We must all support their new label and buy all of their CDs as they come out. We all want the series to continue for a long time.

I think that John and Bill have said that it's something they want to do in the future.

I think if John and Bill did everything they want to do they would have to move to Shangri-La.

The Herrmann stuff just doesn't interest me, not at a premium price anyway. What was great about the naxos stuff is it was only 10 bucks so I didnt mind "blind buys" so to speak.

I'll definitely be placing my orders for PRINCE AND THE PAUPER and CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE, though. Probably SHE as well.

I wish I could afford to have John and Bill do everything I want them to do!
