World premiere of two soundtracks for 20th Century Fox films scored by Hugo Friedhofer. IN LOVE AND WAR is part of unofficial WWII trilogy tackled by composer in late fifties. Powerhouse "Main Title" launches action, introspective dramatic material follows, moving "Requiem" and "End Titles" usher strong finish. WOMAN OBSESSED belies soap opera-ish title, offers powerful outdoor-style score with generous dose of dynamic action, sweeping thematic material. Complete score to WOMAN OBSESSED (48:40) appears in sequence; all available score cues from IN LOVE AND WAR (24:34) appear as well - happily including latter film's near-legendary opening titles for full orchestra (including massive brass and percussion section) plus complete closing sequence. Both scores presented in spectacular stereo from original Fox master elements in superb condition! Lionel Newman conducts both scores in this important release from one of film's most important and compelling composers. LIMITED RELEASE OF 1200 COPIES! SOLD OUT!
