Mighty Joe Young and Other Harryhausen Classics CD



$18.99


Mighty Joe Young and Other Harryhausen Classics CD:

MIGHTY JOE YOUNG (and other Ray Harryhausen animation classics) contains world-premiere music from three legendary monster movies brought to life by the extraordinary stop-motion animation talent of special effects genius Ray Harryhausen. 


The suite from Mighty Joe Young features over 35 minutes of music from the wonderful 1949 fantasy about a giant African gorilla who arrives in the U. S. to become a box-office sensation. Roy Webb's rousing King Kong-inspired score is filled with stunning action cues, exotic African underscore, exhilarating nightclub jazz music, fanfares galore, and outrageous orchestration. And there’s even some room for the occasional love theme and creative uses of Stephen Foster’s Beautiful Dreamer. There’s never been a monster movie score quite like this one, and the amazing music will have you thumping your chest like a gigantic irate ape! As a bonus, this suite contains a special guest musical appearance by Ray Harryhausen himself!

Next on the musical docket is a 21-minute suite from one of the greatest invader-from-space films, 20 Million Miles to Earth. This tale of a Venusian dinosaur running amok in Italy is bolstered by an incredibly-varied score, courtesy of Columbias music library. Legendary composers like Max Steiner, George Duning, David Raksin, Werner Heymann, Daniele Amfitheatrof, and others contribute cues from a wide variety of previous films -- crime dramas, westerns, comedies, romances, and more -- resulting in a wealth of musical material. Adding to the score are Columbia music director Mischa Bakaleinikoff’s superb original compositions, which conjure the alien nature of the Harryhausen-animated Ymir, the beautiful Italian scenery, and the anger of an interplanetary beast who just wants to be left alone!

Finally, there’s a four-minute suite from what was long considered to be the Holy Grail of Harryhausen films: The Animal World. This 1956 documentary by Irwin Allen starred vivaciously-animated dinosaurs by Ray, and Paul Sawtell’s pulse-pounding music recreates the prehistoric thrills as Ceratosauri attack everything in sight! Sawtell’s monstrously-potent dramatic music is is sure to get your blood boiling, even if you’re a cold-blooded dinosaur!
