ROBIN AND MARIAN (COMPLETE)
Label: Prometheus PCR 522
Time = 47:56
Original soundtrack from Richard Lester treatment of famous Robin Hood legend, telling about latter years of title couple, starring Sean Connery, Audrey Hepburn. Score underwent turmoil with initial effort by Michel Legrand tossed, new one by John Barry commissioned, then still more changes with Richard Shores writing additional cues. Soaring major-key main theme lies at heart, with distinctive use of major-seventh as start of melodic line a standout device. Rich! Gentle variants appear throughout. In contrast, composer offers dynamic battle music with emphasis on tympani, low French horn, trombone. Percussive, dramatic stuff! Current all-John Barry CD essentially offers same contents as 1976 promotional LP made for exhibitors at time of release, re-masters sound for clean mono experience. Notes by Jon Burlingame complete handsome package. John Barry conducts, delivers a knockout! Limited edition of 3000 copies.
