Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A 'sampler' of the entire [RCA Classic Film Score] series, valuable in many ways as it contains Gerhardt's superb recording of the main title of Star Wars (the original CD - 2698 has been deleted), plus the magnificent suite from The Thing and Amfitheatrof's Salome excerpt, neither of which are available elsewhere. Also included is a lengthy interview with Gerhardt about the entire series." -- Robert Benson, Classical CD Review "A 'sampler' of the entire [RCA Classic Film Score] series, valuable in many ways as it contains Gerhardt's superb recording of the main title of Star Wars (the original CD - 2698 has been deleted), plus the magnificent suite from The Thing and Amfitheatrof's Salome excerpt, neither of which are available elsewhere.
