From the Manufacturer

Centennial Summer was Jerome Kern's final score–he died in November of 1945 at sixty years of age, a great loss to the world of musical theatre and film. In Centennial Summer, Kern's music could not have been in better hands than that of Fox's music director extraordinaire Alfred Newman, who also adapted Kern's tunes and created the beautiful underscore for the film.

The songs are charmers and several went on to become staples of the Great American Songbook–"Up with the Lark," "All Through the Day" and "In Love in Vain." There is also a magical specialty number called "Cinderella Sue" performed by Avon Long that is one of the highlights of the movie. And Alfred Newman's underscore for the film is classic Newman. The film received two Academy Award nominations, one for Best Song and one for Best Score.

This is the official world premiere release of the complete Centennial Summer, transferred from the 1/4" archival elements in the Twentieth Century-Fox vaults and lovingly restored by Mike Matessino. It just doesn't get better than Jerome Kern, Leo Robin, Oscar Hammerstein II, E.Y. Harburg and, of course, Alfred Newman. It is a thrill to bring this under-appreciated musical to CD and we hope you enjoy this delightful, tuneful and beautiful score, sounding incredible over sixty years later.

This is limited to 1000 copies only.
