Two soundtracks back to back – both of them for mid 50s film outings from the team of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz! The score for The Long Long Trailer was penned and conducted by Adloph Deutsch, but it relies heavily on the melody for the older pop tune "Breezin Along With The Breeze" – nicely revived here with a 50s twist, and taken somewhat past its older leanings – although in a score that's still prone to somewhat sentimental moments, as you might expect for a comedy starring Lucy and Desi. Titles include "Waltz For Esther", "Just Thinking/
Trailer Show", "Breezin Along With The Breeze", "Caesar Salad", "Piccalily", "Big Help", and "Office Radio". Forever Darling is a bit more serious overall – penned by Bronislau Kaper with some of the depth of his best classic scores, and conducted by Johnny Green with a full orchestral approach. The Ames Brothers harmonize nicely on the title tune "Forever Darling", and other tracks include "Millie & Henry", "Fair", "Elephant", "Baby", "Ring", "Zipper", and "I Quit" – plus a few bonus tracks, including "The Straw Hat Song" and "Forever Darling" performed by the Desi Arnaz Orchestra!
