Vertigo ... CD Mercury/Varese, Mid 50s. Used ...
Bernard Herrman's classic spooky score to this great Hitchcock thriller. The music is very intense, and has that great jagged edge that Herrman brought to some of his best soundtrack scoring. The tracks are long, and with a very edgey sound. Titles include "Vertigo Prelude & Rooftop", "The Beach", "The Nightmare & Dawn", and "The Necklace, The Return & Finale". CD

Marnie ... CD Varese, 2000. Used ...
A beautiful recording of the BernardHerrmann score for Marnie – one of the lesser-remembered Alfred Hitchcock soundtracks, but work that's definitely on a par with Herrmann's work for Vertigo and other classic thrillers! The main theme is really lovely – and repeats in these haunting ways – blended in woodwinds with strings on the album's orchestral passages – echoed throughout and mixed with some more dramatic action moments too. Titles include "Mark's Office", "Shock", "The Street", "Finale", "Blood", "The Dial", and "Bridal Suite". CD
