Baby Doll

LP (Item 465272) Columbia, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 12

Kenyon Hopkins at his finest – informed by jazz, but scored with a bit more seriousness overall – in that late 50s style that oozes social consciousness from the very first note! The score's a lot more put together, and somewhat more restrained than the film – almost a jazz score in itself, but with fuller orchestrations overall, conducted by Ray Heindorf. Smiley Lewis plays a bit of piano on the set, and titles include "Fire & Baby Doll", "Doctor & Archie", "Baby Doll's Fright", "Ghosts", and "The Confession". (Sealed 60s pressing!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, 1973. Sealed

The instrumental tunes are pretty darn groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Kong
Paramount, 1976. Sealed
John Barry's music for the blockbuster 1976 remake of King Kong – surprisingly sensitive at points, given the action on the screen of the film! Barry's got a great ear for sounds that underscore the sensitivity of the big ape – and his scoring here is a good illustration of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
