Some soundtracks and film scores from the thirties through the sixties. Just like going to the movies, only you can read instead of watching people do ridiculous things. Includes Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Bernard Herrmann, Franz Waxman. 15 tracks.
The track titled "Pastorale / Village / Chase" from "The Bride of Frankenstein" sounds more like a cute little dance number from Senegal or Mali.
It's not, I think I can guarantee. It's one of the finest soundtracks ever. And I think there's even a thermin in there. Best sequel ever - much better than the original.
Umm I think the wrong song got uploaded by mistake! Thats clearly African pop music substantially post 1935 ;)
Great mix of some old scores though, thanks
I mean... like... um, did you upload this music from your own collection?
Yes. I have a relatively small collection of soundtracks from my favorite film composers. (They were often refugees from Nazi Germany in the 1930s.) The use of music in talkies was still controversial as late as "Gone With the Wind." Fun facts.
Goes beautifully with this political thriller I'm reading (about an imminent vigilante coup at the White House, and a potentially ensuing nuke war in Columbia over the 'drug trade.'
Those damned vigilantes! Why don't they get a job?
