An Aural Adventure
I came to Amazon.co.uk to look for a replacement CD of "Adventure!" as a replacement for my old tape copy (EMI-Columbia TC-SCX 6091).
This was published in 1966 and contains many instantly recognisable film themes and other tunes.
From the bombascity of the themes to "633 Squadron" and "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines", to the tranquil sobriety of "Girl with a Dream" and "Under the Linden Tree", the album provides a perfect aural backdrop for a leisurely journey through the joyous and serene.
The conduction of, and performances from, Ron Goodwin's orchestra are faultless, as is George Martin's production. Various recordings have been used in other contexts to those originally composed for, such as "The Trap", famously used by BBC Sport as their theme to coverage of The London Marathon.
A very easy-to-listen to album, but with plenty of drama and pace to punctuate the dreamier platitudes. I shall look forward immensely to being able to listen to this on CD, which will no doubt bring a whole new lease of life to the album.
