Franz WaxmanMy Geisha ... LP
RCA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Shirley MacLaine as a geisha? Weirder things have certainly happened on screen – but the film still definitely stands out as one of the odder 60s cinematic moments! Fortunately, Franz Waxman scores the whole thing with enough of a serious air to offset the silliness – and actually, his soundtrack here almost stands perfectly well enough on its own – even without the story on the screen! There's a nice mix of sprightly and exotic to the music – although Waxman often gives things enough of a blue tinge to keep the score away from any comedy cliches, too – a surprisingly great balance that really makes the whole thing a delight throughout. Titles include "Goodbye Lover", "Arrival In Tokyo", "Koto Theme", "Call Me Paul", "Lucy's Arrival", and "One Fine Day". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has tape and peeling on the spine, and some pen and a promo ink stamp on back.)

Franz WaxmanTaras Bulba ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A mix of dramatic moments and slight exotic themes from Franz Waxman – penned for an early 60s film that starred Yul Brynner as Taras Bulba and Tony Curtis as his son! Waxman's music has a gloriously full sort of sound – every bit the best Hollywood mode for an action epic like this – with enough ancient themes to trump some of the similar efforts coming out of the European film scene at the time. Instrumentation is heavy on strings and woodwinds, often arranged with great complexity amidst the drama – and titles include "The Black Plague", "Tara's Pledge", "No Retreat", "Leaving Home", "Chase At Night", "The Sleigh Ride", "The Birth Of Andrei", and "The Ride To Dubno". LP, Vinyl record album
