Recorded
Read more especially for the Woody Allen film, this soundtrack contains one side "Rhapsody in Blue" (Zubin Mehta conducting the New York Philharmonic less than a year after assuming the post) with another side a medley of George Gershwin's songs orchestrated and adapted by Tom Pierson. The film Manhattan was Allen's love letter to his favorite city in the world, and both sides certainly overflow with a grand romantic idealism. The medleys suffer from making some pretty disparate Gershwin songs sound same-y, but in context with Allen's black and white images, they work very well. ~ Ted Mills
