Audio Samples

From the Manufacturer

In The Man Who Would Be King Maurice Jarre delivered exactly the score John Huston wanted–understated yet filled with majesty and wonderful orchestral textures. The score is played by the National Philharmonic, along with several of the then-greatest Indian musicians. It is robust, exotic, moving and one of Jarre's finest achievements in a career filled with fine achievements.

The Man Who Would Be King was originally released on a Capitol LP. Its first CD release was on Bay Cites back in the early 1990s. That release went out of print in 1993 and immediately became a pricey collector's item. Since Kritzerland had its genesis in Bay Cities, it is particularly gratifying to be able to bring back The Man Who Would Be King to CD on Kritzerland. The CD has been completely and lovingly remastered, fixing several problems inherent in the original release.

This release is limited to 1000 copies only.
