Decline & Fall Of A Birdwatcher (1968) (Ron Goodwin)

Here's another album that I wanted to post a long time ago, but it seems to me that another blog posted it at one point, so I skipped it. But I haven't seen it around in a long time (though in all fairness I haven't actually looked), so I thought I'd post it anyway. Guess it falls into that 'duplicates' category.

Well, since there isn't that much Ron Goodwin material that's been released (relatively speaking), if you like Ron Goodwin, you probably already have this, but frankly how can you resist a woman draped in a towel hugging a tiger?

It's an adaptation of a satirical Evelyn Waugh novel starring Robin Phillips, Genevieve Page, and Leo McKern (they starred in the movie, not the novel).

I love Ron Goodwin's music and I don't think this score disappoints (unless you have a very low threshhold of disappointment, in which case you're probably very disappointed just reading this blog).

Enjoy!

Hi there,

you amaze me again and again - it seems that you have even the rarest or rare soundtracks.

But here is a Ron Goodwin challenge: "Music in Orbit" - a space age themed compilation by him. I've not encountered this in the year I'm blogging. Perhaps it was there before all the time, but I doubt it.

Here's some information:

Another 1958 release, Ron Goodwin's "Music in Orbit" on Capitol, was recorded with great fidelity in England with a huge orchestra. Like Baxter's "Space Escapade," "Music in Orbit" was also a suite of original compositions with a lighthearted outer-space theme. However, most of the selections, with titles such as "Jumping Jupiter" and "Martians on Parade" are perhaps a bit less sophisticated. In fact, "Sally the Satellite" sounds very much like the title piece of Goodwin's previous, strictly earth-bound album, "Music for Swinging Sweethearts." There are no "space effects" such as exaggerated reverberation or any other electronically produced sounds. Although the music is less cohesive and appealing than that of "Space Escapade" in general, it is not bad overall. About one third of the album is wonderful; especially the first two selections and a glimmering, rapturous piece of true outer-space music on the second side entitled "The Milky Way." The cover of the album should receive special merit. The front is a marvelous vision of a rocket blasting off from a moonscape, with the Earth pictured in the starry background. This moonscape is pure fantasy, and it features white mountains and an arch-like rock formation. The back of the cover has a bizarre drawing that looks like a doodle depicting some sort of fantastic daydream. Incidentally, this album was released under the title, "Out of This World!" on the Parlophone label in England with a totally different cover picturing the firey takeoff of a rocket.
