The Endless Summer Soundtrack - 1966

This album was re-recorded by THE SANDALS in 2000 and reissued. As a result it doesn't match our fond memories of the original soundtrack, or the film, or early dating experiences. Who needs it. Enclosed please find the original soundtrack which is OOP.

From Russia With Love - 1963

Alternatingly suspenseful and exciting tracks fly by with poor Matt Monroe singing a love ballad somewhere in the middle. Perhaps the playing order needs work. This download was just DCMA'd and is removed. 12/5/2018.

Howard Keel - With Love - 1984

Howard was MGM's favorite baritone of the fifties and starring in 11 musicals. He started touring and doing solo recordings in 1983 but never broke into the top ten. These tunes are pleasant even so. Link in comments.

Richard Harris - The Yard Went On Forever...

A TRAMP SHINING and this album came from the same sessions. If you liked TRAMP you may well like this because the composer, musicians, and sopranos are the same. On the other hand, this album went OOP and TRAMP did not. Try your luck. Link in comments.

This is a rip of the LIMITED-EDITION( not really ) bootleg CD set. It is perhaps the best of the boot remixes although there are many others. Play it and go see BLADE RUNNER 2049 - now in theaters.

Kismet Soundtrack - 1955

The Broadway musical got scrubbed and became a more tasteful MGM film for the entire family. In this one Ann Blyth and Vic Damone fall in love while Howard Keel and Delores Gray fall into something more sophisticated. We all go home happily once Howard dispatches the evil Sebastian Cabot. No operatic voices were used in the making of this musical which is something you might really like. Link in comments.
