Boomkat Product Review:
For the first time ever, two of the most iconic music cues in cinema history pressed up on wax.
"The Knife. The Shower. The Screeching Strings. The most famous cue in film music. So ingrained in the popular consciousness is ‘The Murder’ that it has become the defining sound of terror - inspiring countless recordings, performances, homages, parodies and cultural references: from The Beatles’ ‘Eleanor Rigby’, Brian De Palma’s ‘Carrie’ and Mel Brooks’ ‘High Anxiety’ to ‘Family Guy’, ‘Friends’, ‘The Simpsons’, etc. etc.
‘Prelude’ opens the film, accompanying the ‘uber-cool’ main titles (designed by Saul Bass) which sets the stage for the ground breaking score... regularly quoted but never bettered – a remarkable testament to the genius of the Master of Film Music... Bernard Herrmann."
