Okay album. BERNARD HERRMANN Marnie Varese 66094 (Cond Joel McNeely) 15.99 (50:39) Joel McNeely conducts Royal Scottish National Orchestra in spirited, complete recording of Herrmann's lush, dramatic, busy score. Except for inexplicably-missing woodwind run in "Prelude" the score receives terrific interpretation. HUMMIE MANN Thomas And The Magic Railroad Unforscene 40011 16.99 (48:24) A few songs (written by Hummie Mann) plus 30 minutes of orchestral score. Big, entertaining, if not distinctive. MARK McKENZIE Dragonheart: A New Beginning Varese 66170 15.99 (39:34) Exciting, sweeping fantasy score. Quotes of Randy Edelman's original mix with McKenzie's rich new music. Movie went straight to video. RONALD STEIN Haunted Palace / Premature Burial Percepto 002 19.99 (66:51) Haunted Palace is exciting score emphasizing four-note motif for low brass. Premature Burial combines somber music with intense, powerful stuff. Excellent mono sound and packaging. CHRISTOPHER YOUNG Bless The Child GNP 8066 13.99 (53:27) Powerful, frightening score for orchestra and chorus. Cues assembled into long, coherent suites. Low woodwinds with male chorus a standout effect. Young's strongest album in years.
