    INTRADA Announces:

    MASTER OF THE WORLD/GOLIATH AND THE BARBARIANS
    Composed by Les Baxter
    INTRADA Signature Edition ISE 1029



    Intrada's latest Signature Edition release is a 2-CD set featuring Les Baxter scores from two colorful American Pictures International spectaculars. Master of the World (1961) tells the tale of a man determined to end war, even if he must destroy the combined military forces of the world himself. Vincent Price plays Captain Robur, a monomaniacal airman targeting warmongering countries from his fabulous zepplin, the Albatross. A kidnapped scientist named Prudent (Henry Hull) his daughter Dorothy (Mary Webster) and government operative John Strock (Charles Bronson) are unwilling passengers who strive to undermine Robur’s plan from within.

    Two years earlier, Baxter would score Goliath and the Barbarians (1959). Set in the year 587 AD, innocent Italian villagers find themselves beset by a vicious horde of marauding barbarians. What the villainous crew fails to realize, however, is that Goliath’s father is among the casualties and the aggrieved son must settle the score. Disguised as a simple woodcutter Goliath is tested by the barbarians in a series of baroque physical challenges, not to mention the erotic wiles of the daughter of the Duke of barbarians. Goliath eventually leads the charge and sends the barbarians packing.

    For both film's, Baxter broke away from his usual hit pop/cocktail lounge music and composed colorful, epic adventure music. The original LP release for Master of the World was a rerecording of the score, and that stereo LP presentation is presented here in its entirety. After an exhaustive search, Intrada was able to locate and include here 20 minutes of the original film recording of the score, in perfect stereo sound and featuring most of the key set pieces from the film. Goliath and the Barbarians also presents the entire stereo LP program. This two-CD set is limited to 1000 copies.

    I reviewed this in September of 2007 and always had a fondness for it. Worth exploring.

    They've hit fanboy gold with this trend; who would have thought these limited edition thingies would sell like crazy regardless of composer, score or subj. quality?
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    It is sold out!!! I'm surprised to say the least. Apparently there is lots of money in the soundtrack community, Border's book shoppers,(60 people in line when I was there) and SD Padre baseball fans (record attendance for their first home stand).

    Our(US) March retail sales figures came out and it was some of the worst figures in the history of America. Glad to see there are still thriving businesses.

    True but this one sounds like a winner. The samples are just lovely. I would have picked this one over the Goldsmith but I really want to save the $$.

    This is a Les Baxter thread. There were album upon album from a group called the 101 Strings. Les Baxter did some conducting of the orchestra without credit.
