A Fantastic Recording of a Legendary Score
This is the film score that really set the standard for everything that came afterwards, and this recording is the best way to relive it. When I was first looking for a recording of the score of King Kong (1933), I was torn between this version (recorded by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra) and the truly original version, practically lifted from the film. I don't have a single regret. The quality of this recording is superior, and you'll be hard pressed to find real differences between the overall sound and feel of music--they might as well have been the original orchestra members using modern recording technology. As for the music itself, it is not only historically significant but a thrilling listen on its own terms as well. Sit back, relax, and let Steiner's masterpiece take you back to the first time you met Kong.
Get the 1933 King Kong movie, It's one of the top 50 films in American history, if you do get it, i'll buy it ASAP !
