    If you think about it a soundtrack of amplified bird sounds with bonus tracks of before and after.

    I thought it was an excellent April fool perpetrated by SAE, over at FSM, Chris says he's had two serious ( though confused ) orders. biggrin

    So I listened to The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (my first Herrmann score) and quite liked it. Erik recommended that i get a certain compilation CD next, but I decided I'd rather stay away from compilations...I'd rather experience whole works as they were originally intended. I have compilations of Bernstein and Delerue and I rather regret them because I now have so much less motivation to actually experience the whole scores that the compilations feature.

    So, what Herrmann works should I get next? Re-recordings / decent sound quality only, please.
    I love you all. Never change. Well, unless you want to!
  1. "Vertigo"
    "Psycho"
    "North By Northwest"

    I highly recommend hearing Herrmann in suite form. IMHO, his music works much better as a listening experience that way. That's why the Esa-Pekka Salonen compilation is soooo good. All the major highlights from some Herrmann's best work is on that disc. You won't be disappointed.

    But if you are looking for complete re-recordings go to Intrada right now and get JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS I also highly recommend McNeely's amazing re-recording of VERTIGO There's is apparently a better recording of that score but it's extremely rare so McNeely's is the next best choice and what an alternative it is. Stunning sonics, wonderful conducting and passionate performances.

    I really like the Psycho suite that was created. I'd still opt for this LA Philharmonic/Salonen recording

    My psychology simply doesn't accept the idea of compilations where the majority of the original works has been eliminated. I can't really explain it :P

    Erik I think I will go for those two you mention. Thanks!! Any other suggestions also appreciated.

    I second Erik's recommendations, both are sublime!

    I would also recommend John Debney's recording of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, one of Herrmann's very best fantasy scores.

    Step out of the box and take a chance on the Sony release. I just double checked on google and saw that Barnes and Noble had it for under $8.00.

  3. Sounds good whatever it is - if it is The Battle of Neretva then it's not a passage I remember from the Southern Cross release.

    Someone did comment on Facebook that they could detect what sounded to them like "borrowings" from Mysterious Island.

    Is it?! shocked

    I don't remember there being such a raw power on that CD. It's frustrating not having the mp3s to hand. Wait a minute is the actual CD on the shelf here where I'm sat?...YES IT IS!!

  5. But it's not on this CD. Have to wait for the re-recording next year.

  6. Am I the only one who prefers his non-Hitchcock scores to his scores for Hitchcock's films? I've listened to, and enjoyed, On Dangerous Ground, Fahrenheit 451, and Hangover Square and I've found them to be just as enjoyable, if not slightly more than, his work Psycho and Vertigo.

    Hangover Square is a real winner and the movie is pretty darn good.

  8. With 2011 being the centennial year of the birth of Bernard Herrmann I'm hoping for some Herrmann-themed events. Concerts? New releases of his music? Radio/TV programmes?

    I'll be reading his biography "A Fire At Heart's Center" again sometime soon.
