Paramount and Victor Youngone of the greatest studio/composer relationships in history. For this CD, we are proud to present four world premiere releases. They are a diverse gathering that beautifully illustrates how he could write for any kind of story.
First up is the 1956 Perlberg-Seaton war film, The Proud and the Profane. Young wrote a memorable and beautiful main theme for the drama, which weaves in and out of the score in many guises. It's a wonderful score and classic Young.
Next up is the 1953 film Forever Female. This time it's Victor Young in full-out sparkling mode, beginning with a lilting and lovely waltz that then morphs into some fun big-city music. The score is like a glass of champagnebubbly, effervescent and sophisticated.
Also from 1953 we have another George Seaton film, Little Boy Lost. A superb Young score, right up there with his best. Originally there were only three surviving cues from this brilliant score, but in a last-minute bit of serendipity, almost all of it was found and so it's a real treat to be able to present just about everything from this Victor Young classic. The score has just about everything that made Young one of the greats.
Finally we have My Favorite Spy. Young's music suits the film perfectly, underscoring the comedy and intrigue with panache and a grand sense of fun.
All scores have been carefully transferred and restored by Chris Malone from the elements in the Paramount vaults. Limited to 1000 copies.
