✨✧ Alfred Hitchcock/Jeff Alexander/Muir MathiesonMusic To Be Murdered By/Circus Of Horrors ... CD
Imperial/DRG, 1958/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two spooky albums back to back on one CD – each of them a nice slice of older musical horror! First up is Music To Be Murdered By – spooky music hosted by the master of suspense himself – a classic album that features Albert Hitchcock introducing dramatic instrumentals arranged and conducted by Jeff Alexander! The format is almost a musical presentation of the same style that you'd find on Hitchcock's famous TV show of the 50s – as the spoken passages are as humorous as they are macabre, penned with a black sense of humor that perfectly fits the music. The tunes themselves are often moody, but have slight dramatic flourishes – and titles include "Suspicion", "The Hour Of Parting", "Lover Come Back To Me", "I'll Never Smile Again", "Music To Be Murdered By", and "I'll Walk Alone". Next is the soundtrack to Circus Of Horrors – conducted by Muir Mathieson with a sound that's a bit like some of the TV crime dramas of the 50s, but which also has some more circus-like passages in the instrumentation too. The mix of big top and terror is nicely carried out in the music – and titles include "Circus Of Horrors", "Thunderer", "The Kill", "Latin Love", and "Dance Of Death" – plus two parts of the vocal number "Look For A Star", sung by Mark Anthony and Gary Mills.
