Les Baxter's Tales of Terror score gets a CD release
TALES OF TERROR. After an exhaustive search, only the final two-thirds of X-RAY's score was recovered, but contained within those quarter inch elements was the partial score to the Vincent Price-starring "Morella" segment of TALES OF TERROR. Both are presented here and feature the immortal Baxter at his jazzed-infused gothic best. Produced by Ford A. Thaxton and painstakingly mastered by James Nelson from MGM vault elements, this release features in-depth liner notes from film music writer Randall D. Larson. A must-have for film music enthusiasts, especially those Baxter and Corman fans! This is a limited edition of 1200 units and its available through Screen Archives.
