Great John Barry album makes world CD premiere at last! Original soundtrack from John Schlesinger 1930's-era drama with Donald Sutherland, Karen Black, William Atherton. In 1974, famed Dot label producer Tom Mack produces two back-to-back classic soundtracks to Paramount movies with similar 1930's Los Angeles settings: CHINATOWN (for ABC label) & THE DAY OF THE LOCUST (for London label). Mack produces both LPs with emphasis on original scores while weaving in period music important to each respective movie, greatly enhancing mood of final album. For THE DAY OF THE LOCUST, John Barry anchors with rich, warm main theme, then surrounds with appropriate variants to fit each scene. For climactic sequence, Barry writes what might be his most intense, dramatic cue of a long and famed career! Intrada CD features same classic program as London LP, presented from mint condition stereo album masters vaulted at Universal Music Group. Notes by Jeff Bond. John Barry conducts. SOLD OUT!
