Peyton Place

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 12

Although the title of the film (and book, and TV series) soon became a synonym for sex and sin, the largely orchestral score to the movie is far less sexy than you'd expect. Franz Waxman handled the scoring of the film in pretty much the same way as he'd handled a lot of his other classic Hollywood work – with poise and sophistication. The orchestrations for the soundtrack are very complex, with many romantic and dramatic themes running through the entire album – and the overall effect is strong, but very traditional. Titles include "The Rape", "Chase In The Woods", "After The Party", "Rossi's Visit", and "Swimming Scene". (Mono pressing. Cover has tape on the spine, some wear, and WGN marker on back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Man With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack
Decca, 1955. Very Good-
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) ...
