From the Manufacturer

Victor Young's score for Strategic Air Command is one of his greats. It has everything you'd want in a score—a rousing main title march, beautiful and emotional music for the drama and, above all, some of the greatest "flying" music ever written for the screen. Young's scoring of the flying scenes virtually turns those sequences into ballets of flight; a sky symphony of enduring beauty.

This is the world premiere release of Strategic Air Command. The music masters were mono (the film was also mono, but its original engagements used the Perspecta soundtrack, a kind of fake stereo) and mostly in very good condition, housed in the Paramount vaults. A couple of tracks only existed on acetates (which we cleaned up as best we could), and a handful were too damaged to use at all. There have not been nearly enough Victor Young scores released on CD, and we're especially thrilled to bring out this particular example, as it presents all of Young's strengths as a film composer and a brilliant melodist. They don't come much better.

Strategic Air Command is limited to 1000 copies only.
