Picture Perfect Soundtracks
This time a collection of film soundtracks which will transform that ordinary day into one worthy itself of a film just by the sheer brilliance of the sound spilling from your speakers.
Every track on the album is astounding in its way… and about as affecting a musical performance of the 23rd Psalm (in English) as one need ever hear during one’s life on this old earth.
The dark sound, founded on an extremely solid bass line, is married to a quite unusual sense of blend and balance, providing great beauty throughout. I found myself almost hypnotized by its beauty. The perfectly judged recorded sound, spacious but also clear and focused, is another asset.
If there was ever an album to raise the hair on your arms, this is it…
The mesmerising and moving, Music From The Welsh Mines finally gets its re-release on CD, this very special recording by one of Wales’ foremost choirs will be accompanied for the first time with a bonus disc Songs Of Peace & Goodwill – a collection of Christmas carols record in 1958, one year after the original album which has also been remastered …
“This celebration of American vintage noir turns up some period treasures and is a journey into a lost world
Its a treat to hear Amram’s music from films, but to hear his music for his theatrical productions, is even more special…
Its like gaining access to his personal collection…!
Songs of Praise is at the confluence of these first discs, Perry Blake works textures more electoniquies and moving, sometimes threatening and almost martial (Wrote You A Letter), other times soothed (Hyptia’s Lament)…a bipolar work of a feeling of reunion with a friend we’d lost sight of… Gregory Bodenes 5/6 *****
