Les Baxter was one of the conductors and arrangers that fostered one of the most magical musical instruments, the human voice. While many others sought new sounds he stood in the grounds, melody and orchestral color with a large choral ensemble. The result is a musical description of luminous color, blending strings, guitars and vocals especially.
Second album of Les Baxter conducting the 101 Strings Orchestra . Baxter accepted the challenge of launching a series of new titles, fluctuating from subjects with simple melodies to excitingly complex orchestral works, which enjoyed an added risk on his image as an orchestrator. In his creative work mixed the sophistication of European styles, African sensuality, the South American rhythm and cheerful English modernity.
World premiere release of intense, evocative Les Baxter score for famous Roger Corman debut in series of Edgar Allan Poe tales starring Vincent Price, filmed for American International in evocatively-colored widescreen. While original session elements have long-since vanished, complete music tracks mixed into mono and assembled for film do remain. Slight variances in levels designed for later addition of dialog & effects in post-production could not be completely avoided but have been minimized during mastering of this CD. As a result, most cues have identical assemblies of film itself, albeit happily without dialog or effects! Film itself was later re-titled THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER. Les Baxter conducts. Intrada Special Collection release limited to 1200 copies!
