From the Manufacturer

To score Bananas, Woody Allen turned to Marvin Hamlisch, who'd provided the score to Take The Money and Run. Hamlisch, who was just starting out as a film composer, turned in a fantastic score that perfectly fit Allen's humor. Starting with the main title, with its infectious song "Quiero La Noche," the score is chock-full of catchy tunes in a variety of styles ranging from a beautiful love theme to action music to music that's simply, well–bananas. It's a great score from start to finish.

The score to Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* *But Were Afraid to Ask was written by Mundell Lowe, a jazzman and a fantastic guitar player who'd worked with Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Charlie Parker and a whole slew of other jazz greats. From the jazzy baroque stylings of "Do Aphrodisiacs Work" to the cool sounds of "Do Some Women Have Trouble Reaching Orgasm" to the classic horror music of "Are The Findings of Doctors And Clinics Who Do Sexual Research Accurate?" to the romantic music of "What Is Sodomy," Lowe's music is really outstanding and captures all the moods and styles of the film–it's a terrific score. It would be the last original score to a Woody Allen film until 2007's Cassandra's Dream.

Both scores have been mastered from the original materials–Bananas from the four-track session tapes, and Sex from the original master tapes that were prepared for an LP release that never happened. Both sound great and are in stereo.

Additionally, as a bonus track we offer the "Main Title" music for Woody Allen's Sleeper, a great rendition of "'Tain't Nobody's Bizness If I Do" played by Woody and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

There are also three additional bonus tracks–the original film version of the Bananas "Main Title" (which has sound effects not present on the session tapes), the record version of "'Cause I Believe In Loving," and a demo version of "'Cause I Believe In Loving" sung by composer Marvin Hamlisch.

So, relive the sheer lunacy that was Woody Allen in the early, funny ones, with two great scores on one great CD.

This release is limited to 1,000 copies only.
