If it were possible to rate a record here at higher than five stars, this might be the place to do it, as a sort of "best of the best. This CD takes a leap beyond the gap left by the absence of the album -- the producers at Screen Classics put together this extraordinary CD of the complete, unmixed music from the actual scoring session for the movie itself.
Apart from containing about double the music that was ever on the LP, there are numerous advantages to the use of the material -- in recording the music for the movie, Moross used an orchestra upwards of 80 players, and state-of-the-art equipment for the spring production date of the movie; in cutting the album, by contrast, it was customary to use a reduced complement of musicians, owing to recording fees and related costs, and so what is heard on this CD is not only more of the music than was ever heard on the LP, but it's also the music played by about double the number of musicians that would Carved In Stone - Paul Wilder - Listen be heard on the LP, if McKays Triumph - Jerome Moross - The Big Country (The Original Soundtrack) master tapes were still accessible.
The results, even in mono, are most impressive -- producers Craig Spaulding and Susanna Moross Tarjan the composer's daughter have given us a CD with a big sound, rivaling the depth and range that one gets out of SACDs inwith vivid textures across the entire audio spectrum and a close, rich sound on even the leanest, most understated musical passages, such as "Courtin' Time" -- indeed, hearing the results on this CD, most recording artists, classical or pop, would be pretty disgusted with what's on their own CDs of the same vintage origins; they'd McKays Triumph - Jerome Moross - The Big Country (The Original Soundtrack) to know how the CD captured the sound on the brass from "The Raid McKays Triumph - Jerome Moross - The Big Country (The Original Soundtrack) . However it was done, this is arguably one of the best-sounding CDs out there, and one of the best single-CD accounts of a movie's original soundtrack, and is worth its weight in gold and then some.
And that's not just for the sound but the performance itself -- in the early '90s, Silva Screen came out with a CD of a The Flying Sequence - John WilliamsThe London Symphony Orchestra - Superman: The Movie (Original, modern recording of Moross ' music for The Big Country, but it falls flat next to the original tracks, which are not only better recorded but also played in a way that is spectacularly superior to the new recording -- the orchestra on Silva Screen's CD plays Moross ' music much too gently and elegantly, as though it were Haydn or Mozartlike it would "break" if they pushed it too hard in the tempos or the nuances, while Moross gets his orchestra to thunder along at percent of their capacity, pushing the tempos hard and never letting up on the drive behind individual phrasings, or how they're shaped, so that every note of this 74 minutes of music is exciting.
