You're On Dangerous Ground if you have an Obsession with Sam Butera

I uploaded these with Lazar at Lazar's Corner of Lounge Music in mind since he had posted some Bernard Herrmann at his blog and thought he might enjoy these as well if he didn't already have them. Also, I noticed that he didn't have this other entry listed in his U-Lounge series list, so I thought he and others might also enjoy this addition. This post is also dedicated to other great bloggers & blogs like Timbo at A Taste of Vinyl, LoungeTracks (gone for now), ScoreBaby Annex, and all the other great lounge/soundtrack sites. - [Remember this was a long time ago before all the new ones came along!]

'On Dangerous Ground' was a 1952 (or 1951 depending on which source you consult) film starring Robert Ryan & Ida Lupino with a score by Bernard Herrmann. It's about an urban police detective who's become a little world-weary and violent (in fact, he beats a man until he ruptures the man's bladder) so he's sent out of town by his superior to investigate a murder in the country. There he meets a blind woman played by Ida Lupino and learns some lessons about himself. I fell in love with the track, 'The Death Hunt' (I think it was the Charles Gerhardt version) long before I ever heard the full score, and so it always made me want to hear the rest of it.

'Obsession' is the 1976 film starring Cliff Robertson, Genevieve Bujold, & John Lithgow with a score by Bernard Herrmann. My shorthand way of thinking of this film is that it's Brian De Palma's homage/ripoff of 'Vertigo' (just like I think of his 'Dressed to Kill' or 'Sisters' as his version of 'Psycho' or his 'Body Double' or 'Blow-Out' as his version of 'Rear Window'....and the list goes on).

And I mainly think of Sam Butera as the leader of the back-up band for Louis Prima, but he had a career all his own, so it's nice to hear this one. Some great cuts on this one.

See the comments for the info. (These rapidshare links may be a bit tricky to use because of the way the comment section cuts them off, but you can see the full links by using the 'Links To This Post' option right next to the comments link below (or you can even cut & paste the different parts of the link line in your browser on the links that spread out over more than one line - otherwise you get a 'File Not Found' message because the link line is incomplete). And, of course, you can always use the megaupload option too!) - Update: Well, for all of them except Sam Butera, that is.

Sorry for posting this twice, but I didn't realize the wraparound wasn't going to work for these long filenames. If you have any problems with these links, let me know.

Timbo,

Thanks for the kind words & the linking! I love Sam Butera and am glad to hear he's still alive and working (at least 4 years ago). And I will definitely drop by and say hi! I've been meaning to for a long time.
 
Thank you so much for the 'Obsession' complete soundtrack; I've spent a long time looking for this. Having listened through twice, I would say this was definitely one of Herrmann's best scores; up there with 'Vertigo' and 'Fahrenheit 451' (anyone got the complete score of the latter?)
 
Hi Anonymous!

You are most welcome! I'm glad you liked Obsession. I'll pass along your request for Fahrentheit 451. :))
 
BUTERA..I AM A BIG FAN . BIG THANKS.
ON DANGEROUS GROUND ..WOW. SOME TRACKS SOUND LIKE NORTH BY NORTH WEST.
HE WAS THE MASTER. HITCHCOCK AND HERRMANN, MASTERS. WHAT ATEAM.
THANKS FOR KNOWING SO MUCH.
VINCE
 
Hi Vince!

I'm glad to hear that you're a fan of Butera too and I completely agree with you about Bernard Herrmann (and parts of that score do sound like North By Northwest).
