World premiere 2-CD release of complete Henry Mancini score for mammoth 1976 TV filming of Arthur Hailey's novel, directed by Boris Sagal, starring Kirk Douglas, Christopher Plummer, Timothy Bottoms, Joan Collins, many others. Mancini launches with rhythmic figure in deliberate tempo for horns, trombones, percussion, then quickly brings in string theme to set score into motion. Woodwinds, piccolo trumpet, agitated violins highlight secondary idea, then composer brings in variants of main theme. Rhythms return and Mancini finally wraps with dramatic, fortissimo coda - all in a single "Main Title". Wow! Film has four parts, Intrada CDs present parts 1 & 2 on first disc, 3 & 4 on second disc. Over two hours of music! Mancini offers incredible array of material, from memorable main theme, haunting love theme to signature combo pieces, rousing action. A sensational work from a genuine master of the craft! Though CBS made license available, release only became possible when bass trombonist for original sessions located 1/4" full-track (mono) safeties of complete score, recorded over several days. Terrific outcome for a magnificent score nearly lost forever! Mancini did re-record the theme on his wonderful "Mancini's Angels" LP at time, but this is first release of actual soundtrack. Special treat for Mancini fans: all those players from his classic albums sitting in on sessions, including Ted Nash, Vincent DeRosa, Graham Young, Dick Nash, Bob Bain, Terry Woodson, Shelly Manne, many others. Splendid performances assured! Henry Mancini conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1500 copies! SOLD OUT!
