NOTES
Two original soundtracks by John Barry on one CD. ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND is 1972 William Sterling filming of Lewis Carroll classic with Michael Crawford, Peter Sellers, Dudley Moore. John Barry offers wealth of songs (written with Don Black), ballets, colorful orchestral setpieces. Lilting melody for ""Curiouser and Curiouser"" highlights with seesawing violins soaring above melodic line. Orchestral ""Royal Procession"" another highlight. Here, trumpets, French horns root piece in splendid nobility but major-minor harmonies, gentle rhythm keep things genial. PETULIA is landmark Richard Lester drama with George C. Scott, Julie Christie. Barry offers one of his finest works with smoky main theme, cool jazz-ish underscore. Interesting touch is frequent use of gently dissonant sax figures throughout score. Resulting color is striking! One of many highlights is pumping ""Highway 101"". Here composer begins with sparse rhythm, adds layers of marimba, percussion, finally jabbing harmonic ideas from trumpets, trombones. While a ""melody"" is nowhere to be found, meld of rhythm and harmony creates theme unto itself. Dynamic! Both scores feature same contents as original Warner Brothers LP versions, presented in stereo from original master elements. Profuse liner notes illuminate film productions, scoring sessions, more. John Barry conducts. Knockout!

MAIN ACTORS 1: Peter Sellers, Dudley Moore, Fiona Fullerton - 2: Julie Christie, George Scott, Richard Chamberlain, Joseph Cotten
