BOUND FOR GLORY
Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 216
Time = 63:35
Cool find for Leonard Rosenman fans! Just in time for Woody Guthrie's 100-year celebration currently underway, Intrada is proud to present world premiere of Rosenman's Oscar-winning score. Rosenman not only adapted famous Guthrie tunes for Hal Ashby film with David Carradine but composed some 20 minutes of his own original orchestral music in signature style. Results brought him an Academy Award in 1976. Composer himself spoke of desire to one day revisit music in miniature symphony form for concert performance but it was not to be. At one point we were simply going to present premiere CD release of wonderful United Artists LP featuring abundance of tuneful depression-era Guthrie material with mere snippets of original score mingled within album tracks. Upon locating actual album masters in MGM vaults we also discovered original 2" 24-track scoring elements long thought lost to the ages. In mint condition, these complete session masters allow us to present Rosenman's superb music complete, with broader musical architecture in mind. Each "movement" becomes a miniature concert suite of its own. Importance of score in composer's career is hard to over-emphasize but our CD also features that original 1976 UA album as well. Flipper cover allows you choice of original album artwork or alternate campaign (which our crew gave preference to.) Leonard Rosenman conducts both his original score plus orchestral adaptations of Guthrie material. David Carradine sings famous lyrics for film and UA album presentation. SOLD OUT!
