V/A, Great Warner Bros. Love Themes (1979)
As it says really – a collection of soapy, soppy, floppy, lovely, syrupy Love Themes from movies from (mostly) the 1970s. Some big name composers that worked for big name directors on big blockbuster-types of the time. Henry Mancini and John Barry and Lalo Schifrin and Michel Legrand for example. Someone very kindly posted me a copy of this album just recently. I didn’t know it existed. It was obviously part of a box-set or at least a set of volumes dedicated to different kinds/styles of film music. He was ditching his collection altogether and knew me as a fan of film music. A nice gesture. And appreciated. He sent one of the others from the same series too. And I love this stuff – film score have been an essential part of my listening for almost as long as I can remember. And there are some great pieces here for sure.
