Descripción del producto

In 1976, director ALFRED HITCHCOCK capped a stunning half-century career as the master of suspense with his final motion picture, Universal's comedy-thriller FAMILY PLOT. JOHN WILLIAMS was selected from a host of composers (since HITCHCOCK's collaboration with BERNARD HERRMANN had ended a decade earlier) due to his growing reputation and the enormous commercial and critical success of his soundtrack for JAWS. It was assumed that WILLIAMS's soundtracks following JAWS would be put on general release, but this score didn't have it's deserved commercial exposure until this Limited Edition in 2010

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas not quite essential John Williams 6 de febrero de 2011

This title has been on my list for years - one of about two John Williams scores not yet in my CD collection. It's good to see this become available, for the very first time in its entirety. I was worried, though, reading the liner notes. The producers could only find the source material used to master the mono soundtrack for the movie. Happily, it was a 3-track mono source, and the remastering is quite remarkable, producing decent stereo sound. No, it's not what you typically experience from Varese Sarabande, but more than listenable.

All this being said, as it turns out, this isn't essential John Williams. As is often the case, much of it is the same couple of themes recycled over and over, differently orchestrated upon each reappearance. The score does incorporate the use of what sounds like an electronic organ for many of the themes, which gets very old very fast.

To sum up, it is great to have one of the missing links in the Williams soundtrack discography. Too bad about the steep price, though. All in all, not quite worth it.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Finally "Family Plot" Soundtrack 21 de julio de 2012

This limited edition of 5,000 copies from Varese Sarabande of the original motion picture soundtrack of Alfred Hitchcock's 1976 final feature film, "Family Plot" is composed and conducted by John Williams ("Jaws"). To me, a long-time Hitchcock fan, this soundtrack rates nearly as much as his controversial score for his 1964 opus, "Torn Curtain," the one used in the film by John Addison that contains now after repeated viewings and listenings to its soundtrack, a "song" of sorts, the thing he quarreled with Bernard Herrmann (who also has his original unused score for the film available on the market) who refused to, in my mind, bookend a song like "Que Sera, Sera" for Julie Andrews that he did so well for Doris Day. Julie Andrews, we know, changed her "image" with that film anyway, sleeping out of wedlock with fiance, Paul Newman. As a bonus on this "Family Plot" soundtrack is a "Family Plot Theme" that is sort of Top Forty, as well as the muzak playing on the radio by the hip tombstone carving teenagers in the film. I have looked for the "Family Plot" soundtrack for years as the main melody has always intrigued me, the one running throughout the film played on a harpsichord. The choral "seance" piece of the opening credits is also good to have. It is very interesting to hear Williams's use of choral voices, electronic organ, harpsichord, etc. so effectively to tell this story of the occult, a fake medium, kidnappers, diamonds and the overall thread of fate and its ironies in a macabre suspense comedy, humor not since 1955's "The Trouble with Harry" has Hitchcock allowed himself to tell. A special treat.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas "The First Seance" is worth FIVE STARS alone! 8 de febrero de 2011
Por Reginald D. Garrard - Publicado en
A quarter century wait has come to an end with the release of John Williams' score to the last film by Hitchcock. One may wonder how Bernard Herrmann would've orchestrated the film, having scored some of Sir Alfred's best ("Vertigo," "North by Northwest," and "Psycho," to cite just three). However, inasmuch as "Family Plot" has a lighter plot than the other films, Williams does a fantastic job in orchestrating the film, a mixture of mystery, comedy, and the other world, of sorts.

Fans of Williams will recognize techniques/melodies that the composer utilized in the "Lost in Space" episode "Mr. Nobody" and will get a future "peek" at what will be heard in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "The Witches of Eastwick," A.I., Artificial Intelligence," and, to some degree, the "Harry Potter" films, among others.

The piece de resistance, no doubt, is, appropriately, the first cut: "The First Seance," a haunting number that sets up the character of the medium Blanche, played in the film by Barbara Harris. Using a female voice effectively as an "instrument," the tune captivates and transports the listener to a heavenly place.

The song is a true gem in Williams' line of successful melodies.
